A brand I'm pleased to be getting to know. (5 Stars)

This past summer I suffered through some really horrendous asthma attacks and migraines so I've been slowly stocking my essential oil collection with those that are good for pain, specifically headaches, and breathing. One of the reasons I was so pleased with this particular basil oil is that it is such an economical find while also being from a family run company that chooses to donate a percentage of their profits to service organizations. This month it's The Hope Project.

The quality of the oil is good and very potent. The tiniest bit goes a very long way. I've mostly been using it for aromatherapy during this very stressful holiday season but also for some pain because hours of sitting at my job has had me stiff and sore. If you're looking for an affordable essential oil brand that doesn't use a bunch of hype to sell itself I would definitely recommend checking out Simply Earth.
