Here's a tip that bears repeating: Not all essential oils in the supermarket are truly natural. The words "naturally derived" on the bottle mean the molecular structure of the oil was derived from a flower or plant in a laboratory. Oils with this description actually can be 100% synthetic. To avoid this kind of oil, look for "USDA certified organic" on the label, or choose oils like peppermint or rosemary, which are plentiful, inexpensive and good choices for a healthy, natural scent at home.
