The Essence of Essential Oils

 

Balms, healing herbs and oils have been used since the beginning of time.  Many people believe that these oils are primarily for the body, but the mind and soul can benefit as well.  Whether it's lavender for peace and restful sleep, rosemary to improve mental acuity, or mint as a boost of energy, oils should be an essential part of any wellness regimen.

 

Young Living Essential Oils offers a variety of quality products certain to soothe and invigorate you.  Or you can sample one of the recipes below.  But here's the rub: Essential oils often require unique preparation and application, so consult your physician before you begin using them.
