Info on how Essential Oils work


I hope you are doing well today!  I just got back from visiting my West Virginia family.  I hadn't been "home" in 4 months, so it was really good to see everyone.  I haven't lived in West Virginia for almost 15 years, but it is still home.  Do you feel that way too?

In today's world, it seems more and more people are trying to remove harmful chemicals from their homes.  And, not only that, but also for healing purposes.  This is where essential oils come in. 

Essential oils are more than just a smell good product.  When used correctly, they can be quite beneficial.  I went to a essential oil home party and within an hour, the hostess had made fabric softener, carpet freshener, foaming soap, and dusting spray.   It was very easy to do, and used household items to add the essential oils too.

Essential oils work because they are able to penetrate the cells in our body.  This also is a reason why they should not be used willy-nilly.  Do your homework and find which essential oil works best for you.

I was given the opportunity to review a lavender oil by aVo.  This has a sweet lavender smell to me.  I put a few drops on a cloth at night and keep it close to my bed, or I put it in my mister.  The company states this is a 100% pure natural oil.  That is an important piece of information to look for when deciding on an oil.

 Here are a few things one may use lavender oil for:  calming, sleep-aid, reduce swelling from insect bites, can be applied to minor cuts or burns.

It is a general recommendation that no essential oil be applied directly to the skin.  It should be mixed with a carrier oil, such as coconut or grapeseed oil.

aVo lavender oil may be purchased on Amazon.



I was provided this product at no charge in exchange for my review.
