There has been a trend going around about essential oils. I myself use them all the time for sicknesses, energy and so many other things. This will be an article for those who are new to essential oils and want to know more about them!

Here is from information I got from the YoungLiving website, if you want more information you can go to

Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come.

You can access the power of essential oils many ways, but the most common practices include aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption. These methods bring the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals to your home, family, and life.

You can also look on Pinterest for more ideas and tips on essential oils.
