When I was first introduced to the oils, I was skeptical about their benefits. After using them for the past few months, I realized how wonderful they are. Now my husband uses some of them. He never liked scented candles because they were too strong. He never complained about the smell of the diffused oils. About 3 weeks ago my husband had a really bad sunburn on the back of his neck. My joking comment is always "I have an oil for that". He asked if it would really work and I just said try it and see. He was absolutely amazed at how the lavender took the heat out of the sunburn. Then he started to tell me how much better he felt at work, more calm. I told him it was the lavender. I think he's a believer now!
