Lavender essential oil is extremely versatile. if you use only one essential oil, this would be a great one to use. It has so many uses and is so good for you. It is also safe to use around babies and young children. It can even be used internally if you are careful.
We’ve started a flower, herb, and fruit and veggie garden. I am going a new route and trying out the Jiffy Seed pods. I’m growing beans, peas, bell peppers, tomatoes, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, nasturtiums, and misc flowers.
Carrier Oils are an important part of using essential oils. The vast majority of the time, essential oils cannot be applied directly to the skin due to the risk of skin irritation because the oils are so concentrated.
I'm relatively new to the world of essential oils, but once I started using them, I started swearing by them! I use them for about everything now. I am getting over a horrible allergy fit with a lot of coughing. I used a bunch of essential oils combined with cough syrup (the good stuff too, since Froot Loop stopped nursing) and it's nearly gone!
I consider us "green" people. We like to save energy, save water, recycle, save the earth. One of the easiest things to do is to change out your lightbulbs. LED bulbs look more like traditional CFL bulbs and are actually brighter while using just a fraction of the energy!
