Essential oils therapeutic benefits are wonderful

Before I ever made soap, I was deep into the unique healing benefits of herbs and their potent essential oil properties.

Lavender is relaxing

Lavender flowers are where lavender essential oils come from

Growing and playing with them in foods and teas, I would always include a handful into the childrens evening bath. So soothing, they cleanse and heal any wounds from playing outside all day. We live at the edge of a cypress swamp, our property backs up to Newnans lake and Prairie creek runs along side and the Hawthorne bike trail, making running and playing with critters an all day affair. To which I would use the herbs and oils to relax cleanse and get them ready for bed. Now 19 and 21, they still enjoy the many benefits of essential oils, as our go to for chemical free scents in our home and on our bodies. We use The Ultrasonic diffuser, by simply adding:
