Adding to the many gifts that plants offer us, essential oils provide a delightful means of enhancing our aromatic experience. Essential oils are well-researched therapeutic products that support our immune system, reduce pain and inflammation, heal our skin, and ward off microbes such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
