It seems like essential oils are everywhere these days and their popularity is growing like wildfire. Eight years ago 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 even sells them. As the home use of essential oils increases and people are becoming more interested in natural health in lieu of conventional intervention, we see more information popping up on how to do that.
