Essential oils can be applied topically to the skin.

  • Common examples include applying a blend that contains black pepper (Piper nigrum) or ginger (Zinziber officinalis) essential oil to reduce arthritis pain and improve flexibility.
  • Applying German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) essential oil to treat eczema.
  • How does this work? Our skin is somewhat permeable. The active chemicals in essential oils are absorbed just like the ingredients in common pharmaceuticals such as hormone replacement therapy cream and nicotine patches. via How Do Essential Oils Work? | Taking Charge of Your Health & Wellbeing.
