Essential Oils and Health

Posted by Annie on Jul 6, 2015 in Education, high school |

Our family has been experimenting with Essential Oils and I have to tell you, I’m having a blast.  Now, you might ask, “Why essential oils?”  Let me count the ways…



Essential oils work, from Lavender for itching or for relaxing to Ylang Ylang for depression or as  health booster for the nervous system. I have found them to be not only healthful but cost effective. Some essential oils are good for so many things.
