      Great hub. Checked them out. Always looking for new oils. Their prices are a bit on the high side.I'll stick with my supplier. I might add, most essential oils can not be directly applied to skin. They can burn, as in peppermint unless you mix it with a carrier oil. Lavender, rose, tea tree are the few that you can apply directly onto skin. In school, I learned EO should not be taken internally.
