Essential oils. These little gems and their usefulness have been known for ages...like thousands of years. And they actually work very well. So many mainstream products manufactured today have 'fillers' that we are just beginning to realize are often very toxic to us and our environment with extended use. In an effort to 'cut costs', most of the hard working, healthy and natural ingredients that once were successfully used have been diluted or worse simulated by a toxic fragrance that is supposed to mimic a naturally occurring helpful ingredient. Read the labels for yourself. It's amazing and frustrating. Quality products don't have to be expensive nor synthetically produced to work.
Interested in getting to know essential oils and how they can benefit you? There are many companies out there who make and sell them and I've tried a lot of them. I do try to find 100% organic when possible. I order from various online websites and watch for sales regularly.
