I have nothing but good

I have nothing but good things to say about the quality, price, customer courtesy that Better Essentials has had. I will be buying form them in the future and have had multiple family member buy from them as well.

A Wonderful Oil to help Kick Coughs

My family had a lingering cough from an illness earlier this year and we could not kick it. It was driving us nuts and keeps us all awake at night. I looked into what oils help with this type of thing and decided to try Marjoram and Eucalyptus. I used both of those plus a couple drops of lavender in our diffusers at night and within a couple of night using this blend our coughs were gone and we were all sleeping better. This is a great oil, and I am excited to find other ways to use it!
