Interview: Essential Oils for Newbies

I was having some health issues going on… and the doctors really couldn’t tell me why!

 

So I started reading a lot about natural health and ways to get rid of some chemicals or toxins in my daily life… and one discovery I found was essential oils!

 

I made some simple DIY recipes and was able to replace so many thing in my house with the natural resources.

 

I had the privilege to interview one of my favorite chiropractors and mom friends, Dr.Shauna and I’m thrilled that I can share that here with you!
