I LOVE my essential oils! And often find myself needing the lavender when it's back to school week :-)

Yes! Lavender is my go-to essential oil. I have a diffuser bracelet that I put a drop on so I can smell it throughout the day. It's very calming.

I am an ardent lover of essentials oils too in daily life.... lemongrass, citronella as insect repellents or in room diffusers, rosemary for hair, lavender for stress relief, tea tree for anti-acne and sinus and rose essentials to set the mood

I was hesitant to try essential oils for the first time, as well. I had a few samples sent and started to use them in my own life and I was almost immediately intrigued. Now I feel like I learn something new everything day about their uses. Let me know if you want to try some!
