By Sylvia on April 14, 2010

Essential oils here on referred to as EO's are the very essence of the living plant. For instance, have you ever strolled through a beautiful garden brushing your fingers against fragrant rosemary, thyme etc and find yourself continually smelling that wonderful scent on your fingertips? That is the EO and what we will be learning about here and the varied ways to incorporate them into our lives!

Thanks for sharing your article!! Being in herbs for several years now, I am just now discovering the uses of EOs (besides just smelling good without nasty chemicals!).

I look forward to visiting your cubit more often!

I enjoyed reading your article Sylvia and I look forward to learning more about essential oils. Do you happen to have a list of them and what they do?

I think more folks would be apt to collect the Essential Oils if they knew what they would be good for. There are so many chemicals out there today that I like to use natural products whenever I can.

Thanks Sylvia!

First of all thank you Trish, Janet and Cheryl for visiting Forest Maiden Botanicals and I am so pleased that you are all looking forward to what is coming! Yes, I agree a list is an excellent idea and I am compiling it as we speak. How about we begin with the most common and safe EO's to use?
