Now that you know HOW and WHY to use essential oils…you may be wondering, “What brand of essential oils do I choose?”

We personally use and recommend Young Living.  However, we’ve also used other wonderful essential oils from a variety of companies (doTerra, Native American Nutritionals, Vibrant Blue, etc) but my top pick is always Young Living because I’ve worked with their essential oils since 1995, I feel that they have extensive education and resources and I can whole heartedly recommend them based on quality and effectiveness.
