Also.. 2 cool things ( that you probably already know) but I remember you talking about quality of oils... I am out of lavendar but I have a bottle of Aveda lavendar... aveda... good stuff.... one would think that there wouldn't be a difference. There is.... YL...so much better. Another thing... my friend was having mice in her house... I mean..outsmarting the traps and seriously standing in her kitchen staring at her. I read peppermint oil repels rodents... so I gave her some cotton balls with peppermint oil on it... NO MICE since and she said the added benefit. ..her kitchen smelled nice!!!
I am seriously fascinated with the science behind essential oils. Again, if I had unlimited funds and time (that will be another post later on the benefits of a Young Living business) I would study this stuff!
Dr. David Stewart writes some amazing articles in his Raindrop Messenger. Here is a link to his site Raindrop Messenger. If you are curious about oils I would suggest signing up for his newsletter.
Here is one of his articles about how Essential Oils can quickly pass through the Blood Brain Barrier. I hope you enjoy as much as I do. I won't tell anyone that you are a geek :)
