It seems like essential oils are everywhere these days, and their popularity is growing like wildfire. In 2007, when I started making soaps, I didn't know anyone using essential oils in their daily life. In my experience, they were mostly the things of hippies, spa, and the occasional soaper. Today I think most of us can think of at least one person who uses essential oils or sells them. As the home use of essential oils increases and people become more interested in natural health, we see growing information on how to do that.
