Essential oils are oils that are obtained from parts of plants such as the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, or roots most frequently through steam distillation. Each essential oil offers not only the aroma of that plant but also the medicinal value of that plant. There are many potential applications and benefits of essential oils as well as many ways to use essential oils such as topical application or aromatherapy. Today, I will share several free essential oil recipes that help you with many things in your life from DIY beauty products to DIY natural remedies to DIY home recipes. Enjoy!

Where To Get Essential Oils:
I just recently became a Simply Earth Ambassador. I just made sense to me. I love essential oils because of their healing powers and I have been a big believer in them for over 20 years. I suggest Simply Earth essential oils because they are good quality and Simply Earth shares 13% of their profits to organizations who helps end human trafficking. I don’t know about you but that sure is a movement I want to support!
