I use some oils for eating, skin and hair, but none for aroma hanging around my home. I don’t like smells too much and have never gotten into the idea of having oils around wafting into the air.
What I do like are oils that are not heavily processed, and use those as part of my healthy diet and lifestyle. This first on the list is coconut oil, which I try never to be without.
I use coconut oil for cooking, and also just pour it over cooked food I get off the streets. I love the flavor and need the calories, and so this is my go-to oil.
When I was in the states, I was a heavy user of hemp oil. This cannot be cooked or heated, but I added it to food at the table. I also made an infusion with oregano, and used this on any food I felt would be improved by the taste.
Both of those oils are good for my skin. I use coconut oil now, but cannot find hemp oil in SE Asia. This was a really good massage oil that would give me a very good sleep if I used it at night.
I slather my hair with coconut oil about twice a month. In the first days after using it, I have slicked back hair, and then it fades out over a couple of weeks and just makes it easier to take care of my long straight locks.
Other oils I use are nut oils and avocado oil when I can find them at a good price. Those are only for eating.
These may not be essential oils in the standard way people think of them. But I find them essential to my healthy lifestyle, and I am glad I found out about them during my weight loss days.
