The Top 8 Most Useful Essential Oils

I've been wanting to do a post on the most popular essential oils that I use daily.  I think so often we can become so bombarded with information about essential oils that it's almost impossible to truly know where to start.  Especially since there are different schools of thought when it comes to essential oils.  I've taken much of the below information from the Spark Naturals blog.  I find it extremely helpful when I'm doing research.  So below is a little info. plus how I personally use these … [Read more...]
