What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are basically a concentrated oil of a specific plant or herb. It is considered essential in a way that means it contains the essence of the plant's fragrance. There are different ways to create essential oils. A lot of the time they are created from steam distillation. Other ways can be from cold press, oil extraction, resin tapping, and more.
Essential oils can be used in numerous ways like scents in candles, cleaning products, roll on fragrance, cosmetics, and, incense. There are more, but these seem to be the most safe commonly used ways in society.
Essential oils have always been a vital component in my life. Plants and herbs can be incredibly nurturing for your physical and mental health once you learn how they can be used.
Aromatherapy is the way that I use my essential oils the most. I have a home diffuser that I run as often as possible and it helps me and my daughter have a more sound night of sleep. In my car I have a plug in diffuser that I can just add a few drops of oil on the felt insert, and the piece heats up and diffuses amazing scents in the car.
Each plant and herb has its own healing elements, and it is really fun to learn about all of these natural secrets that we all have at our fingertips! I have made some awesome discoveries and resources for essential oil knowledge as well as recipes, and I feel I have to share them with you as others have done for me.

Ultimate Bundles continues to amaze me. A couple of months ago I purchased their “Blogger's Genius Toolkit” and was absolutely blown away with what I received.
I could barely wait till the 16th when I purchased the Essential Oil Bundle which includes:
- 26 ebooks, courses, and printable explaining how to use herbs and essential oils safely and how to create your own remedies and beauty products.
With all of these goodies I am going to know how to rebuild my medicine cabinet with natural remedies, create my own skin care products (with all natural…and organic is the only way I am gonna make my own stuff:), learn concoctions for preventing and treating cold & flu symptoms, create mood inducing scents for the house.
Essential oils and herbs have always been in my life, mostly due to my family and friends growing up, so I know how powerful Mother Nature can be. The trick is learning a solid base of knowledge about which herb is good for which issue.
One of my favorite things about the Ultimate Bundles is how they organize all the goods. Since you are getting such a gigantic bundle, it can be a little intimidating when you are looking for something specific.
The key is, checking out their categories, and their strategy guide if offered to help you discover what you are looking for. Print out the getting started guide because they help sort out what everything is, reminds you of which courses you can print worksheets from, etc.
There is also a full-money back guarantee so there absolutely no risk AT ALL.
If you miss out on the sale of a particular bundle, all you have to do is GO TO THIS PAGE and sign up to be notified when they are going to sell it again. Sometimes they will do a quick two day flash sale on one, so if you are not on the notification email list, it is possible to miss it AGAIN.
