8 Ways to Use Essential Oils Without a Diffuser (plus a way to get 3 free bottles!)

By Ann Timm, Contributing Writer Do you love essential oils, but you’re not ready to spend a whole lot of money on them yet? I hear you.

The Wonderful World of Herbs (Herbal Academy Review & Giveaway!)

I’ve loved herbs ever since I first started learning about them.

My goal was to make things more convenient and fast. After all, this is something I’ve been doing for years.
