What are essential oils? If you have been following along with our posts (& slight obsession) on essential oils for the office and helping you feel better, then you know a little bit about them. If not, we are happy to debrief you on what they are and what they are good for! Today in particular, we are highlighting the things you didn’t know you could use essential oils for.
To start, essential oils are simple pure extract from plants & herbs. Yes, they are totally natural (if you get them from the right source!). We use DoTerra because they are one of the only brands out there that are totally pure. This means no additives.
