(January 2015 edit: along with this series, please make sure to read my follow-up post with more info about essential oil suppliers and practices.)
This post will bring the series to a close, and I hope it was helpful to those of you wanting to learn more about essential oils. It was fun to write and I learned a lot in doing so. And while I am by no means an expert on essential oils, if you have questions about anything I wrote about, please ask — you can contact me here or leave a comment. I can’t guarantee I’ll have the answer as I’m still learning myself, but I might be able to point you in the direction of information that has been helpful to me as I pursue learning more about this amazing gift of natural medicine the Lord has given us.

One final note before we get to the exciting giveaway: I realize that this series probably came across as very pro-Beeyoutiful. It was meant to be as I think Beeyoutiful is a great company that provides quality natural health products for an affordable price. They’re a small company and therefore not as well-known as other natural health companies so I wanted to get the word out about them. However, it really bothers me when people say stuff along the lines of “This company is the only one with quality products…you must buy from them if you want the real thing!”. So please know: as much I appreciate and trust Beeyoutiful, I don’t think they are the only company out there with quality essential oils. If you already have an essential oil supplier that you trust and that you can get affordable essential oils from…good for you! By all means, stay with them if that’s what works for you. For me, I’ve had only good experiences with Beeyoutiful through the many orders I’ve placed and the numerous interactions I’ve had with them…and so I want others to know about them as well.
My good experience with Beeyoutiful only continued when I approached them about sponsoring a giveaway to go along with this series. They were very enthusiastic about it and more than generous. They offered to give away one of their Beginner Basics Essential Oil Packs. This pack contains FIVE different essential oils: eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, orange and tea tree. I have all of those essential oils, and if you read my post about the different ways I use oils, you know that some of these are my favourites and they are all very versatile.
Entering the giveaway for this Beginner Basic Essential Oil Pack is simple. Visit Beeyoutiful and check out their selection of essential oils. Come back here and comment, telling me which essential oil you’re most interested in and why. For an extra entry, share about this giveaway through some kind of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) and then comment telling me you did so (but remember, you must leave a separate comment in order for it to count as an extra entry!). And I’m sorry to any international readers, but due to shipping costs, this giveaway is only open to those residing in the US. The giveaway closes at midnight EST, Friday, December 7th.
This giveaway is now closed.
