100% therapeutic essential oils review and GIVEAWAY

 photo IMG_4617_zps21b5e35e.jpg

I believe in the power of essential oils and so does Plant Therapy.  Essential oils have great benefits and with this realization Plant Therapy was founded with one goal in mind: To provide highest quality essential oils at an affordable price.  

As part of a product review, I received Plant Therapy's Top 6 Synergy Sample Set which contains Sensual (aphrodisiac), Energy (physical energy), Germ Fighter, Relax, Immune-aid and Tranquil (emotional stress relief).  These oils are 100% pure, undiluted and therapeutic grade.    These are not the fragrance type oils but of therapeutic grade.  Basically, these are oils suited for Aromatherapy and the like.  NOT meant to be consumed.  Click HERE for more info

Essential oils are mixed to work harmoniously to achieve new properties for a specific purpose, i.e. energy, relaxation or even pain relief.  The new blend is called a synergy.  

This sample pack includes ALL of the basics.  I personally love the Energy blend, was a life saver this week in particular with so much running around, crazy busy at work, car broke down, cat food ran out, cathequetical conference (all day event on Saturday), Sunday obligations and zero taste for coffee hence, no desire for it.  The Energy blend took a huge part.  Worked perfectly on the office's nebulizing diffuser.  The mix of peppermint, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus simply worked for that extra pick-me-up needed throughout the week.

Another great one has got to be Tranquil, an emotional stress reducer synergy.  Last time my hormones were out of place causing great emotional distress for no reason (this is the once-a-month occurrence most ladies will know what am talking about) Tranquil came very handy to sort things out on the inside helping me feel more at ease with myself and not so overly emotional.  It was very easy to use added to my lotion as recommended.

High quality essential oils are also known for  being very expensive.  This sampler set retails for only $32.99.  Plant Therapy's goal is to provide them at prices everyone can afford so their profit margin is low in order to achieve this goal.  Other sets are also available but if you have NEVER tried any essential oils or you just want to stock up, this is your chance.  Enter below to win your very own sample pack.
Be sure to scroll all the way down for more suggested uses.
