What are the best ways you can use lavender essential oil? I have a wonderful lavender bush in our backyard that gives off an amazing aroma. Now that we’re using essential oils, I can bring that wonderful smell inside my home. Not only does it smell good, it serves so many different purposes as well. It’s widely known for it’s calming and soothing properties.

Where do they sell the best oils? Rocky Mountain Oils are my favorite place to grab them, they offer free shipping if you’re in the U.S. and they have a money back guarantee, how awesome is that? I’ve used oils from a popular MLM company and they were great, it’s what hooked our family onto oils, however, I understand that not everyone wants to buy a membership just to get oils. You should be free to buy as needed and that’s what I love about RMO. Their quality is just as good and I was able to find replacements for the everyday things that I needed.
