In fact I didn’t know too much about essential oils until I met my best friend Esther who studied aromatherapy at Uni. I bought Esther this fantastic essential oils chart for Christmas last year and she loved it. I also use peppermint oil to help me with headaches and whilst it does not take the pain away entirely, it does help.

HOWEVER, while all of those benefits sounds wonderful, certainly I want them…HOW do essential oils do this? Nobody has really answered that yet. Can you? I’d much appreciate it! I’m not against giving it a try but I want to know HOW it works first.
