Essential oils are practically everywhere nowadays and come in different forms such as massage oils, perfume rollers, and even ones you can use with an air diffuser at home. These concentrated liquids take chemical compounds from organic plants such as lavender, lemongrass, rose, mint, eucalyptus, and many more. People put them in perfume rollers and apply on skin to help them cope with stress or anxiety, or diffuse scents in the living room and bedroom to improve the odour and aura of the room.
Though trendy and in-demand – especially for health-conscious consumers – essential oils don't work for everyone, but there's no harm in trying them. If you've been thinking of jumping on the essential oil bandwagon, to get you started, here are some of the best essential oil stores and brands available in the Hong Kong market. By Shanti Parmanand
