Essential oils are today’s natural miracle remedies… yet the practice of using essential oils has been around for thousands of years. In fact, using essential oils dates back to the ancient Egyptians. And in many ancient texts the oils were often referred to as “nectar of the Gods.” There are also over 500 references to essential oils in the Bible. Obviously these miracles of Mother Nature were highly revered by Ancient Man. When I first learned about Essential Oils my first thought was “how could something so simple actually improve my health?” But as I did more research and learned how they really work, I was amazed.
