The Oily Institute has a Newsletter!

I probably did not need to add another thing to my plate, but I went and created a newsletter for The Oily Institute! If you are curious about using essential oils to improve wellness and feel better, then I’d love it if you’d read this newsletter (I’ve made it really easy for you by posting it right here) and joining me over at The Oily Institute community on Facebook. We have great discussions over there about how pure, therapeutic grade essential oils can be used to address all sorts of issues, and I share health information on a regular basis. It’s a great, active community! I’d love to see you there, and I’d love to answer your questions about essential oils… I know you have them. ;)

To receive updates by email click on that little orange button with the ghosty guy at the top of the newsletter.
