A list of oils and some uses.

Lemongrass: helps heal soft tissues, like ligaments and tendons
Lemon:clean and disinfect, good for cold/sore throats, helps bring about microcirculation or can be used as a tonic
Lavender: calming, for burns and muscle issues
Eucalyptus: expectorant and muscle warmer
Peppermint: tartar remover, pain reliever, flavoring agent, burn reliever
Basil: anti-inflammatory anti-venom especially spider bites
Cedarwood: anti- (every bug that drinks man's blood), tick, flea, chiggar, mite, a skin softener and moisturizer
Frankencense: stops pain, rejuvenates and repairs tissue and DNA damage anti-tumor, immunity booster
Myrrh: rejuvenates chapped and ageing skin, wound healer, immunity booster

These are just a few oils with just a few uses. Oils can be used singly or combined, and I normally use a carrier oil, with most, when I use oils topically.
Feel free to add how you use EO's, what are your favorites, or any questions you may have abou oils.
All glory to God

I've heard a lot lately about therapy oils. There seems to be many pros to using them.
My concern is that being oils, how messy will it be to use/rub on?
Also, what is a "carrier oil?"
And at what section of the store would I buy these? Are they the oils in health/beauty? Would oils in the candle department (like diffuser oils) be the same thing?

Almond oil is a good carrier oil for the stronger essential oils.

Most oils are readily absorb into the skin and leave very little residue.
Carrier oils are natural oils used to disperse essential oils. For example: if I wanted a 5% blend of something I would put 5 drops of my essential oil with a teaspoon of carrier oil.
Most commonly used carrier oils are:
Coconut oil
Olive oil
Hemp seed oil
Jojoba oil
Almond oil
Avacodo oil
Grapeseed oil
I try to mix my essential oils with the carrier that will be most effective. If I have a fungal infection, I would mix the essential oils I wanted to use, with coconut oil, because of the antifungal properties of the coconut oil would help heal the fungal issue also.
I hope this helped.

Most fragrance oils have little to no essential oils.
