Do you use essential oils in your home? We have been for some time now and I get so giddy when I learn about a new way to use them. We have first hand seen the benefits of them and can’t see our lives without them.
We have used them to increase energy, relieve stress, enhance concentration and even manage pain. There are some people who are able to discontinue over the counter medication altogether.
Whatever you use them for, whichever you use, you should try a DIY Essential Oil Candle! They are beyond fantastic. I love that you can customize the scent to fit your desires or needs and they are healthier than the fake scents that you would buy in the store.
There may even be health benefits to having essential oils in candles. This post I am using Orange and Lemon essential oils, but you can basically use whichever ones you would like.
