    So hard to pick a favorite, but lately I’ve been relying on homemade elderberry syrup for immune support.

  7. kim waldrep says

    Just started making my own stuff (shampoo, conditioner, diaper wipe solution, cleaners) a couple of years ago. A few drops of tea tree oil in the diaper wipe solution works great to keep my daughter fresh and clean. Next on my list is making my own body lotion and face cream.

  8. says

    I have a smaller set of oils that are running out… I find that I use the lavender, tea tree, and sweet orange ALL THE TIME and they are dwindling. Great website!

  9. Shayla Shaw says

    I would like to try peppermint or spearmint.I have used lavender and tea tree in oil soap and really liked the lavender.

  10. Leslie says

    My favorite essential oil is Peru Balsam. I use it when I make bar soaps because the scent is clean and fresh and it lasts well over a year in the soap.

  11. Shannon says

    I have been looking for a place to get good quality essential oils. There are several recipes I have been wanting to try that require different oils. I hope I win these!

  14. Spring K. says

    I love using lemon and lavender essential oils around the house for cleaning. They make everything smell fresh and clean! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  15. Laura says

    I love garlic! I use garlic in literally almost everything I cook, it’s good for the blood, it’s good for the immune system, and my favorite use for it is on ear infections. A couple drops of garlic oil into the ear canal, lying on your side, let it sit for a few minutes, then turn and let it drain out into a tissue. It works like magic, and much faster than anything traditional I’ve ever used. LOVE garlic!

  16. Elisabeth says

    Great giveaway!! My favorite is Peppermint! It is a great scalp reliever. It’s very relaxing.

  17. Kristi says

    I love using essential oils to make my own cleaners (especially tea tree, eucalyptus and lemon)

  18. Kristie says

    I really enjoy the DIY tips and recipes and look forward to each email I receive. I was especially pleased with the email regarding the Mountain Rose Herbs Essential Oils. I use many essential oils and like to find new places where so much care is taken with the production. I am looking forward to trying these oils.

  19. says

    I have recently started using essential oils, and am excited to make my own body butter, especially since Christmas is coming up soon!

  20. Megan says

    I’ve only used tea tree oil and I absolutely love it!! I use it in my dish soap and I have used it for skin irritations as well. There’s so many other DIY things that I plan to try out (make my own toothpaste, lip balms, body butter etc.) that use essential oils so I would be just tickled to win :)

    Also, Mountain Rose Herbs is a fantastic company from my home-state of Oregon :)

  21. Stephen Salera says

    My favorite herbal products have recently become essential oils, iv been experimenting with them a lot recently with making lip balms and salves, so far iv tried the mountain rose herbs spearmint, sweet orange, and clove bud oil, all of them are amazing and everyone iv given the lip balms too has fallen in love with them and buys them off of me now.

  22. Amanda says

    Mountain Rose Herbs is a great company. I’ve ordered their products before and been very satisfied with the quality and their customer service. Their reishi extract is excellent.
