10 Essential Oils That Help Create a Calm Home

Essential oils have been used throughout time in a number of different ways. I was never quite convinced of the strength of essential oils until I started using them at home daily. I noticed an immediate change, plus it never hurts to just make the home smell wonderful. Simply adding a drop of lavender to a warm bath or diffusing eucalyptus oil in a pot of hot water can help relieve much of the day’s worries. Find out which oils are great for fighting off allergies and pesky bugs in the home, and which work to help wind everyone down after a big day.
