  • I LOVE these suggestions! I’d much rather support a healthy lifestyle than treat sickness. I love using the balm squad on my kiddos and hydrosols too!

  • This is exactly what I am looking for. Thanks Plant Therapy for posting this very informative post.

  • Why do Plant Therapy oils lose efficacy as they age, but popular MLM company oils claim they do not lose efficacy? Is that just a false claim?

  • I have most of the oils, but those balms look amazing! I didn’t know about them before this post.

  • I got the KidSafe complete set in hopes of making balms and rollers and sprays for all the stuff that happens to my kiddos. Usually *everything* needs a bandage, even tiny bumps and bruises, so hopefully we’ll get away from that and be using something that can actually help with the symptoms!

Hubby had some kind of bite (probably a mosquito) earlier tonight, and I’m like “I have something for that”! I sprayed him down on the bite with helichrysm hydrosol and not only did he let me, but he didn’t complain again and said it smells good!! WIN WIN

  • What a great post! Plant Therapy, you definitely deliver when it comes to essential oil education, uses and so forth. I need to get those balms!!

  • I’m just starting to create more medicinal items with EO.

  • I adore this post! I love using oils in place of over the counter meds whenever possible for myself and my kids! I love the way this post is written with specific ways to use thendifferent oils. We have begun to use many oils in place of traditional meds such as peppermint oil to ease headaches, poopease in place of stool softeners, balance for premenstrual cramps, and many more. I can’t wait to try out more of the oils mentioned in here! Plant Therapy makes using oils easy and affordable!

  • I LOVE the convenience of the roll ons. I have energy, relax and germ fighter and they are my saving grace. Much easier than attempting to dilute them yourself…

  • Informative article for anyone starting on their oily journey. I have most of the oils here but I always learn something new when I read your posts. Time to really stretch out the oils and their usage.

  • I am beginning to use all of the above for green living so glad to be part of the plant therapy group
