Essential oils are extremely concentrated. It would take roughly thirty cups of herbal tea to equal the concentration of plant essence in one drop of essential oil. Some essential oils made from rose plants require 4,000 pounds of rose petals to make one pound of essential oil, and are thus very expensive. 

Lavender is one of the easiest essential oils to produce, because it only takes one hundred pounds of plant material to produce one pound of essential oil. Essential oils are generally very complex chemically, containing many different substances and compounds. Some experts have theorized that essential oils are the lifeblood of a plant, and contain compounds that the plant uses to fight infections and drive away germs and parasites. 

Essential oils are used in several healing systems, including aromatherapy, Ayurveda medicine, and massage therapy . Essential oils are used for skin and scalp conditions including acne, athlete's foot, burns , cuts, dandruff, eczema , insect bites, parasites, sunburn, warts , and wrinkles. They are recommended for muscle, joint, and circulation problems such as arthritis, high blood pressure, cellulite , aches and pains, and varicose veins . 

For respiratory problems and infections, various essential oils are prescribed for allergies, asthma, earache , sinus infections, congestion, and colds and flu. Essential oils are also used to improve digestion, promote hormonal balance, and tone the nervous system in conditions including anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction , and exhaustion.

Essential oils can be used as quick and effective mood enhancers, for increasing energy and alertness or reducing stress and promoting relaxation . Essential oils can be used as perfumes and lotions, and can be used as incense to improve the atmosphere in houses and offices. In the case of tea tree oil, one small study showed its effectiveness in fighting orthopedic (bone, joint, and soft tissue) infections. Another recent study showed promising results for tea tree oil gel in topical treatment of recurrent herpes labials.
