Lavender Essential Oil

November 15, 2017
Lavender Essential Oil is one of the most common essential oils and has been used for thousands of years in cosmetics, perfumes and even for embalming! Ancient Romans utilized lavender for healing, deterring insects and for washing. And because this essential oil is so versatile, it is one of the top ten must have essential oils for your home apothecary!

If you are looking to get some essential oils, there are different ways to get your hands on them and I've listed them right here:

Retail

If you have a particular oil you are looking for, use this link to my dōTERRA website where you can purchase the oils at retail prices online and have them shipped to your door. But dōTERRA doesn't just offer essential oils, they also have: supplements, laundry wash, cleaners, hair care and skin care products and other items you use daily like toothpaste and deodorant!

And yea, buying quality essential oils does cost a bit more than picking up a bottle from your big box store but that is because these are the real deal, the actual essential oils from the plant. Most of those bottles you will find in a big box store have added fillers, preservatives or fragrances added to them which is why they are so cheap!

If you are looking to buy more oils at any other time and what to save 25% of the retail price, I suggest you sign up for a wholesale account to get more bang for your buck!
