essential oils

The essential oil that I used for my laundry soap was lavender scented by Naturily Healthy. Naturily sent me 3 different essential oils to write a review on and I have been extremely pleased with the quality of all three. Each bottle is 100% essential oil, meaning that they are very powerful and fragrant. That means that is takes less drops than other brands of essential oils to get the same result.

There are about a million different ways to use essential oils. However, my favorite way to use my essential oils from Naturily is by putting about 4 drops of the Lavender in my hot bath. It’s heavenly, like an aroma therapy paradise! Additionally, I have terrible Eczema on my legs, and lavender oil makes them feel less itchy and dry.
