Review of Essential Oils on Amazon UK
I have spent the last 8 years searching the internet for 100% pure essential oils & 100% carrier oils. My goal was to find the best P.Q.Q. That’s PRICE. QUALITY. QUANTITY.
We have tried many different company’s & websites over this time & now stick with what we have found to be the best quality for our money & always delivered on time.
Some that I have ordered from other websites were not of very good quality. Needless to say I will avoid buying from that country & website again ! A little tip read through the description fully. Some are not 100 % pure essential oils and you don’t get the quantity you think you are ordering. lesson learnt ! To test if they are pure essential oils, place 1 drop of oil on a piece of white paper. If it’s NOT 100% you will see a oily ring around the drop.
Plus when using these essential oils you will use a lot more drops to get the same effect of a good quality product, In the long run this will costs … Read the rest
Pregnant Woman Essential OIls
As any soon-to-be-mother knows, pregnancy can be a mixed bag of high & lows. While you are excited about meeting your new bundle of joy, observing a hundred & one do’s & don’ts can present something of a challenge, especially if you are a creature of habit. Take for example, the use of essential oils.

A beauty massage using essential oils can make a difference in not just how a woman feels, but also to their well-being.
However, pregnant women should always consult their doctor before beginning any questionable activity.

No studies have shown negative or positive effects on babies, but no risks should be taken.
Using essential oils during second & third trimester is not only okay, but also recommended. Many women become drained & tired during their pregnancy, but they have … Read the rest

Well I had to cover essential oils for mans best friend. After 27 years of owning a couple of Jack Russell’s (Kimbo 15yrs & Holly pictured 12yrs ). I wondered about natural health treatments for them, From shampoo’s to healthy food supplements & if any of them worked ?
But back then there wasn’t much known about essential oils like there is today especially for dogs ! & I would never risk my dogs health to find out. You shouldn’t either always ask your vet before trying any of these essential oils I describe.

Best Essential Oils for Colds & Flu
