  1. Oils are of great importance for our health. Especially CBD. Here it is very important to choose a really high-quality manufacturer, so that it does not harm your health. I advise you to study CBD reviews in more detail to understand what you should pay attention to

  2. Hello! Thank you for this article. This is perfect and such great information!!! I usually always dilute any oil I use. When taken internally I use a carrier oil in the capsule or if I add a drop to a cup of tea I add just a small pinch of salt to help disburse the EO. And I would also say not to use an essential oil every day for months and months, it’s good to give your body a break! But I want to know the opinion of a professional like you. We board dogs in our home. Would it be safe to diffuse essential oils in our home? Just no one answered this question
