From Calming to Cleaning: the endless benefits of essential oils

Distilled from an enormous amount of plant leaves, stems and flowers, essential oils are valuable and beautiful gifts from nature. A single drop can go a long way. These oils are taken into the body by inhaling, through the skin and sometimes ingested.
