The 5 Best Essential Oils You Didn’t Know You Needed
I love essential oils and I think there are some that should absolutely be part of your natural pharmacy, those are:
Lavender is, what I call, a gateway oil. 😉 This is generally the first or one of the first essential oils that people will try and with good reason. Lavender essential oil can be a sleep aid, reduce anxiety, relieve pain and help with acne; not to mention is smells fantastic.
