I'm sure you've heard everyone going on and on about the beauty of essential oils. My first experiment with essential oil was when I was 16 years old at a young woman church activity. We were taught how to make bath salts. What really stayed with me was the Lavender smell, so refreshing and soothing. I fell in love. It was then that i started learning more about essential oil and their benefits. I now use them on my skin and hair, because I wanted to keep my skin and face from chemicals by incorporate essential oil into my beauty regiment. 

Although essential oils are known for their therapeutic use like mood balance, energizing or help with sleep, they can also be a good beauty hack.

Here are oils you can incorporate into you beauty routine
