Our Favorite Oils!
Essential oils work!! No really, they do. :) if I took a poll of our whole JoyDropper community and said "how many times have you used oils... and how many drops?" we'd total up millions of drops of oil and hundreds of thousands of uses. It would be an endless list of oily solutions for sleep, focus, kid stuff, skin problems, headaches, and on and on...

It can totally seem overwhelming at first: "you put how-many-drops... where?" but I don't want anyone confused about the wonders of using their oils. So... here are the top most used & loved oils from our community -- and ways we love them!
