 Top 12 Singles:
Sometimes, I am asked...if I only get one oil, what would be the best?  My answer is always
Lavender

Top Three?  Add Peppermint and  Lemon


Next in order of significance are:
Tea Tree
Helichrysum~~ This one is expensive, but has so many great uses.  I save it for "emergencies" and then it's worth more than it's weight in gold.
Spruce
Blue Tansy~~ new to my list because of its many uses including anti-inflammatory, allergies, asthma.  It is mild, but very effective in dilution.
Clove
Copaiba~~also new to my list, a powerful anti-inflammatory and used for muscle spasms and cramps.  Effective on even antibiotic resistant bacteria.


"When in doubt, use Lavender".
