Benefits Of Essential Oil Patches

You may have heard of essential oils – compounds extracted from various plants, which can be used to treat a variety of ailments. Another way of getting the benefit of these oils is to use essential oil patches, which can provide a portable and discreet way to diffuse the oil for about 8 hours. The patches have some benefits over an inhaler or infuser; they can be used on an individual patient in a nursing home or hospital without other patients potentially being affected or exposed. They are easy to carry with you and apply to the skin, and can provide continual diffusion at times when it’s just not convenient to use a diffuser or inhaler. Once applied, the patch stays firmly in place and there’s no danger of dislodging or losing it, something that can be of particular benefit to older people.
