Young Living is a good place to buy these essential oils, so is the Essential Oil Company. These two companies are ones that I have add luck with. Also the Essential Oil Company also sells distillation equipment if you want to make your own. http://www.essentialoil.com/collections/...-equipment

Thanks for the link, I hadn't heard of the Essential Oils Company so this gives me an additional source to research.  I use both Young Living and Eden's Garden currently.  I've also heard that Do Terra is a good company though I don't have any of their oils.

I suppose distilling your own is the next logical step to look into.  I have a small herb garden that I'm adding to as I find them.  And it's time to start getting ready for the fall season so it's time to increase that part of it.  Something new to look into!

Smile 

As a side note, got a scratchy throat that started last night.  So I'm taking Wellness Formula, colloidal silver and oil of oregano under the tongue.  Should knock it out in short order.

one day I might distill my own once I had a field of plants and herbs to pick. As for the scratchy throat. I usually have a glass of bourbon straight, not a shot just sipping it till empty to take care of scratchy throats, it's the burn that helps me from coughing for the throat to heal.

Gotcha covered on that Smile

I'm not a drinker, not even socially.  But I do have Vodka for making tinctures.  And I picked up a bottle of spiced rum several years ago while on a cruise just for the very reason of a sore throat.  Forgot all about it till I just read your post.

Well lavendar works well on headaches, even migraines.  We've tested that out.

Next test is using oregano on a wart.  Son plays guitar and has a wart on one finger.  Looking at the net this morning a lot of folks have had success using oregano.  So here goes...

Lavender rubbed under the nose has helped with snoring for me, and it also has helped my wife from killing me in my sleep.
