The following is a list of popular essential oils and their health benefits. Essential oils offer a range of health benefits including natural healing abilities, providing natural ingredients for personal cleaning products and more.
There are many wonderful essential oils. This list is certainly not exhaustive but these essential oils are among the most popular. These essential oils are included in my DIY recipes. I think you’ll find these essential oils very useful.
I highly recommend Plant Therapy essential oils. Plant Therapy is my favorite brand of essential oils as they are organic and not too expensive. I do not recommend Aroma Force essential oils as the oils pour out instead of drip out.
I provide links with the best price (from Amazon or Well.ca, both of which I order from often). It is up to you to decide what is most practical and convenient for you.
