After debating with myself for hours and hours and hours, maybe even a couple of days, I chose only 10. Only ten?! Yes! Believe me, you don't really want to know how many I have. Or, do you?

   Breathe is a respiratory blend. This is one of my most used oils during the winter. It helps me clear my airways and breathe better when having a cold. I add some drops to my diffuser, or rub it everywhere: feet, chest, back, neck, hands (to inhale), and the tip of my…
