    I confess: I’m a longtime mostly-lurker. While I regularly share your posts on Facebook and Pinterest, I’ve only commented one time before this.

    This is a great giveaway! Thanks so much for offering it up. :-)

  2. Rajae says

    I’m still learning to use herbs/essential oils, but my favorite go-to right now is lavender! Helps everyone relax and calm down after a busy day.

  3. Pamela Wofford says

    What a great idea for a contest! I use essential oils a lot, both at home and at work (trainer at a doggie daycare and dog training facility.) For example, we spritz lavender oil spray around the area to help calm reactive or anxious dogs.

  4. Susan says

    What a generous act of kindness this is to be giving away such a wonderful gift with so many uses.
    I look forward to learning more about your company and products in the future. May you continue to be who you are and carry on such great acts.

  5. Melyssa H says

  6. Jennifer says

    I love your DIy book. I’ve made over half of the cleaners and it is a great resource! Thank you guys!

  8. Joyce says

    I would love to win this. I use the E oils in so many things. This would be a great way for me to use more. :-)

  9. Carolyn says

    So hard to pick just one. Lavender, peppermint and tea tree are all my favorites but used for different purposes.

  10. mandy says

    I love using different oils in my body scrub that is made of sugar and olive oil. My favorite scent is lime. My boyfriend uses tangerine or grapefruit. We use vanilla in a warmer in our kitchen. Also use them in sprays as room deoderizers with white vinegar and water.

  11. Joanie Whitman says

    Although I have several essential oils as staples in my stay healthy arensal, lately I have become quite found on eucalyptus oil in the vaporizer for relieving stuffy sinuses.

  12. says

    I use a lot of essential oils in my salves and lotion bars. I love Mountain Rose Herbs, too, for the awesome customer service, organic and fair trade products, and reasonable prices.

  13. Stephanie says

    I would love to use more essential oils. I have tea tree, eucalyptus, and lavender. I’ve tried the lavender in the vinegar for fabric softener. love it.

    Eucalyptus and wintergreen have helped me tremendously with the cough/congestion that has been going around. Alas, I am nearly out…..

  17. Mindy says

    I have wanted to try their oils for some time now. This would be a fabulous way to get started with them!

  18. Jill says

    I love essential oils and learning new ways to use herbs. I think an essential oil I’d like to try is cardamom. I am imagining how cool it would be to make a “chai tea” lip balm for Christmas gifts!

  19. Michele says

    Appreciate the chance to win essential oils:o) I started using essential oils a couple of years ago, because I was looking to make my own cleaners. When looking into purchasing e.o.’s I came across a product which contains Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus citriodora, Myrtle, Eucalyptus radiata, Peppermint, Spruce, Ravintsara, Pine and Marjoram. I bought a diffuser and put a few drops in it. I love using this e.o. product, because it helps considerably with my son’s asthmatic bronchitis or any type of cold which affects his breathing. I also use other essential oils in the diffuser, as well.

  20. Wanda says

    Haven’t used any essentials oils, just can’t find them where I live to try. Would love to try before investing in different oils. What a great giveaway.

  21. Steph says

    Rosemary oil is great for hair and skin. I like the smell of it too and want to try it in my homemade laundry soap.

  22. Rene says

    I am looking forward to learning more about essential oils and how to use them to be clean, healthy, and non-toxic in my home. Thank you for this opportunity!

  23. julie kennedy says

  24. Christine says

  25. Mary Kay says

    I love getting my e-mail and seeing a new post from dyi – you have inspired me to live a more natural lifestyle one step at a time. I am looking forward to taking the next steps by eliminating chemical cleaners – we have already bought a steam cleaner – and it is doing a great job!! Who would have thought really hot water could clean some of the grimest dirt.
    Thank you for hosting such a great give-away!! I am so interested in learning more about essential oils and working them into our daily lives!

  26. Morgan says

    I use primarily Lavender, Tea Tree Oil, Eucalyptus, and Sweet Orange Oils in our home. Most of these get added to baths or air conditioning/vacuum filters in order to help our house smell great … but I am very interested in expanding my use of essential oils and learning about homemade cleaners. The amount of toxins and “unknown” chemicals that are surrounding us everyday is freaking me out and I am trying to cut back on as much as possible to keep us healthy!

  27. Annie B says

    I love using sweet orange essential oil in my white vinegar fabric softener! I’d like to try using witch hazel and many more as I use several to clean with already.

  28. Sharon Campbell says

    I have ordered Mountain Rose Herbs lavender oil and loved it! I would so enjoy having a whole selection of herbs to make natural cleaners, including thieves oil for helping prevent illness this winter. I am a home care nurse, and I see lots of people, which means many opportunities to get sick!

  29. Tracy says

    I like lemon balm, as it makes a really nice summer tea and you can also stop your mosquito bites from itching by crushing it and rubbing it on the bite. (Can you tell I’m missing summer today?) I also love bergamot and use the oil in most of the personal care products I make.

  30. Jane says

    Would love to win this! I’m just getting started but I love the peppermint, lavender and tea tree oils. Thanks for this opportunity.

    Since I have a cold right now Frankincense and Wintergreen essential oils are my favorite to keep me breathing easily :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  42. Brittany A says

    Our family is on a tight budget, but I am also concerned about bringing harsh and/or synthetic cleaners into my house, especially when planning a family. I haven’t used any essential oils yet because of price, but I’m excited to get started, first with tea tree oil to clean the house. Love the site!

  43. Genny says

    Just learning mostly. We have used some oils in making lip balm but am starting to branch out. Lavender worked great in helping my daughter after being stung by hornets!

  44. Jen W. says

    It’s so difficult to choose just one, but I’m leaning towards Lavender because it smells wonderful and it has so many functions.

  54. carol jane says

    I would love to try the clove bud because I think the scent would be wonderful for this time of year.

  55. Greg says

    We lost our essential oils kit when we moved to PA. We had been using it to make our homemade laundry soap, and also for making the house smell much better. I’d love to convert our bathroom cleaners to natural products, but we’re on hold right now because we can’t find the oils. This kit would be a lifesaver!

    I am just beginning to learn about essential oils but they’ve already proved helpful in so many ways.

    • Angie says

      Guess I didn’t share what my favorite products are. My go to EOs for cleaning and body care are lavender and tea tree and I love lemongrass EO in my diffuser. Right now I’ve got a jar of sunflower oil being infused with chamomile, calendula, and plantain (all from MRH) to make diaper cream!

  65. says

    My mom started using herbs about 15 years ago or so. Personally, I started using herbs about 2 years ago. Now that I’m married and expecting baby #1 I’m excited about using them more for the health of our little family. :-)

    My favorite herb is probably Lavender. I love the smell of it! It also gives me a warm, fuzzy, soothing feeling when I just think about it. Can’t wait to use it with our baby baths!

  66. Ashlee says

  73. Suzie says

  121. Jessica says

    Lavender is probably my favorite. It smells good and use can use it in just about any and every thing

  122. Katie M says

    The essential oils I use most often are lavender and tea tree. I’m still pretty new to essential oils, and mainly use them as fragrance, but I love using herbs in a lot of my cleaning and skin care recipes. I also love Mountain Rose Herbs.

  123. Michele says

    I love tea tree oil! My skin is really sensitive to dirts after I get my eyebrows threaded, so I put a little on the area. Its antiseptic properties keep my skin clear.

  124. caitlin says

    I love Peppermint Essential Oil, I use it in my toothpaste! Also tea tree oil. Would love to try the rest!

    • Sherlei says

      just kept trying and got it :-) I use essential oils daily I love them have not tried mountain rose but hope to with this contest

  125. Susan says

    I don’t know much about oils but am excited to add them to my daily routine because I have read so much great stuff about them!

  126. Kelly says

    I love spearmint…it is so relaxing…mix it oil to create a candle…i could leave it burning all day!

  127. Micky Rolfe says

    I use essentials in my lotions, insect repellant, body butter, lotion bars. My favorite is Lavender.

  128. Tina says

    I have been lurking on this website for quite some time and this is just the incentive I needed to make myself known! I have loved mountain rose herbs for years now and never had the chance to spoil myself with their gifts – this is an awesome opportunity!

  129. Destiny Kunefke says

    I love the beeswax, essential oils and carrier oils, and I love using the herbs. I would love to get some of the flowering teas and medicinal herb seeds to start an herb garden! Love Mountain Rose! Great quality and nice selection :)

  130. says

    I LOVE oil of oregano, especially around this time of year and with flu season coming soon. It is a natural antibiotic. I want to use grapefruit though, I hear that’s a great one.

  131. sheryl says

    I love aromatherapy! I use the oils in a diffuser as well as making skin care products. I’ve also make my cleaning products with them. I would love to win this wonderful giveaway. Thanks so much for the offering it.

  132. Britni says

    I am amazed at how well, Lemon, Lavender, vinegar and baking soda work so well as cleaners…(not in that order) I love making homemade cleaners with your recipes. Your book you have for all the DIY is very helpful. I made a salve for a rash that my son had… simply Coconut oil, Lavender and iodine. Amazing how simple we can make life by being natural. Mountain Rose Herbs is an amazing place to buy all your oils and everything else you need for DIY.

  133. Marilyn says

    I have tried Lavender and use it for almost everything. We used it for bee sting bites, mosquito bites, headaches, stress reliever, lots of wonderful uses!

  134. Karibeth Myers Soto says

    I love argan oil for my hair and skin. Elderberry for immunity. Oil of oregano is great! And I grow lavender because I love it for so many things :)

  135. Tori L. says

    I love making all kinds of herbal teas and tinctures, but I haven’t ventured into essential oils yet. I can’t wait to try them!

  136. Hannah C says

    I love using essential oils! I think my favorites are lavender and peppermint. They’re both so soothing.

  137. says

    This is a fantastic opportunity. This would be so awesome for me, as someone just starting to get into making their own cleaners and hand scrubs and everything, Such a win would propel me forward and encourage more DIY goodies being made in my home. (and it is such a value!)

  138. Michelle says

    When we started to go all natural I slowly began to gather a few essential oils from the health food store. We use two for making soap. I substituted peppermint oil for Matt’s peppermint extract in his toothpaste. I like being able to control the amount of scent. The DIY way is light and pleasant, not overpowering. I have read about Mountain Rose Herb and would love the opportunity to try it and share my experience.

  139. LizzieBeth says

    I so appreciate the style of your blogs, uncluttered with silly or witty chatter that I have to wade through, just fresh and informative. First found you while looking for a homemade laundry soap recipe, liked what I saw, and have enjoyed your daily emails ever since. Haven’t used essential oils yet but have been doing much reading about them. Glad to know of your trusted source for them.

  140. Shelley McLean says

    I love tea tree oil! My favorite is to add a couple drops to the laundry when I wash the baby’s diapers. It’s antifungal/bacterial/viral properties get those diapers extra clean and keeps them smelling fresh.

  141. Teresa S. says

    Great site! I love using lavender essential oil , especially in the dryer (a few drops on a damp cloth gives clothes a gentle fragrance), and I use lavender or lemon when making homemade deodorant (which works fabulously).

  142. Kate Kilian says

    YAY!, I’m so happy to hear about this giveaway!! I’ve been wanting to purchase from Mountain Rose Herbs for a while (I have a list gathered up but haven’t gotten around to it yet) – it’s so amazing to me that you can make healthy foods, teas, AND cleaners from herbs and their extracts.

    I never usually win anything… I bet I won’t this time either, but it’s always worth a try!!

  143. Hendrica Regez says

    My all-time favorite herb is lavender. I use the flowers in cooking and teas and the essential oil goes into all cleaning solutions. Just love that smell!

  144. Sharon says

    I’ve found lavender, eucalyptus, or tea tree oils to be helpful and fragrant additions to the general and window cleaners you’ve posted. I use grapefruit or lemon oil in the dishwasher detergent. I can’t handle artificial fragrances at all, but organic essential oils cause me no respiratory problems at all.

  145. Marlena says

    I think my favorite oil is lavender. It has so many uses that I find myself using it several times a day.

  146. Lori says

    My hands down favorite essential oil is lavendar. I use it in all of my homemade household cleaning products, and my friends are always commenting on how nice my house smells and asking for my secret. And I always share!

  147. Mamie says

    I’ve been a fan of DIY for quite awhile and I want to try all of the different oils! So many ways! Thank you.

  148. Leah says

    Ohhh….to have a pack of all of those lovely oils would be just amazing!! <3 I do make my own cleaners…medicines….personal care products….and Mt. Rose Herbs has some awesome stuff! <3 Thanks DIY Natural…I love your emails and recipes…and giveaways!! ;)

  149. Nyssa says

    I’m crazy about lemongrass! I wish I could have more, but they’re just a little too expensive to justify buying all of them that I want. Great giveway! Thank you!

  150. Kari Jensen says

    I am just getting into using essential oils and I’m loving it! Learning so much! Thank you for this opportunity!

  151. Bethany Wuerffel says

    I love experiementing with different scents and combos! I add them to homemade salves and lotions.

  152. Jennifer says

    Thanks so much for this article. I needed to buy some essential oils but was not sure of a good place to buy them.

  153. says

    I LOVE these essential oils, and would LOVE to have them to add to all the cleaning tips I learned from the book!!!!


  154. Jayme says

    I’ve been wanting to try some essential oils for the longest time…but have yet to get online and order some to try!

  155. says

    i can’t say as i have a favorite herb…i love licorice root for it’s adaptogen properties. adaptogens are phenomenal period since they are balancing to the entire body. i love milk thistle for it’s support and “mothering” of the liver. as far as essential oils go – sandalwood is my all time favorite. it’s fragrance transports me.

  156. Emily Harryman says

    I have a companion rabbit, and try to use essential oil based cleaners exclusively as rabbits have VERY sensitive respiratory and digestive systems. Lavender oil is my favorite, and its my bunny’s fave too! I give her massages with it, and spray some (mixed with water) in her crate when we go on car rides to help calm her…it really works!

  157. Jenni Robillard says

    I cannot live without lavendar! I have rhuematoid arthritus and my body reacts to a “flare up” by having chronic hives. The hives can last for weeks to months…no medication helps relieve the itching. Lavendar oil has helped my skin, it is very soothing. The smell calms me down too, which helps my body get back on track.

  158. Melissa says

    I do love essential oils. I use a wool felted ball sprinkled with essential oil in my dryer instead of fabric softener due to hubby’s allergic skin. The ball beats out wrinkles and static and the essential oil makes everything smell great.

  159. Agi says

    I use essential oils often for many things – Air freshener, body moisturizer, in the bath, as an antiseptic. I definitely want to learn more about the power of eo!

  160. Marian says

    I am a fairly new convert to organics. I have heard of Mountain Rose herbs essential oils and would love to investigate their uses.

  161. RJ Dibble says

    Peppermint Essential oil is my favorite. It’s crisp, cool scent is revitalizing. Great for respiratory congestion, burns, and cooling in hot weather!

  162. HEALTHY GAL DD says

    For inhalation, therapeutic massage, fragrance, baths, foot bath, hand bath, shower, sauna, jacuzzi or hot tub, room sprays, pillow talk, perfumes, pomanders, pot pourri, handkerchief, shoe rack, humidifers, ring burners, wood fires, scented candles, compressses, body or facial oils.

  163. Brianna Laughman says

    Right now Tea tree oil is my favorite however I have been really wanting to try Lavender.

  164. Amy says

    I would love to earn some eo for free!! I am on a tight budget right now, but am so interested in them and their therapeutic nature!! So far, I can’t get enough Tea Tree…but that’s really the only one I have owned!

  165. Maria Ryan says

    I love calendula, elderberry and arnica root!! I only use Mountain Rose Herbs for all of my essential oils and herbs. We absolutely love them and look forward to our purchases every time!

  166. says

    Not very unique in my answer, but lavender will always be my favourite. It was my first introduction to essential oils when I was a teenager, and I have a lot of nostalgic memories float up whenever I smell it :)

  167. Debbie S says

    My favorite herb or herbal products are essential oils and coconut oil. EO because they can healing and help in so many different ways and coconut oil because it can be used in so many products and because of the healing and repairing it can do for the skin and body.

  168. says

    Since I am a busy college student … Valarien root has been my go-to for unwinding after a long day of studying. I just bought a bunch of goodies from Mountain Rose Herbs and I am more than thrilled to make some lotions, deoderants, and cleaners with what I bought.

  169. says

    Curious to test these oils out… ( I use another big name company for all of my oils) These are a lot cheaper if I could be convinced they are as high quality :)

  170. Elizabeth says

    Would love to win this… Can never seem to find the extra money in my budget to spend on essential oils. :(

  171. Paula says

    I love these products. My favorite essential oil so far is lavendar but I also enjoy their herbs. Would love to win some of these.

  172. Danielle says

    I love lavendar oil for its healing and calming properties. I would love to win the oil set, the purer the better!

  173. says

    Oh, you included Lime Oil…my favorite. So refreshing and lively. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have been a subscriber for a while, now. Judy

  174. Christa Z says

    I like using tea tree oil. Nice to know you’ve got all the anti-bacterial properties without the poisonous chemicals!

  175. Erin says

    So far I’ve only used tea tree oil for antiseptic and mold removal, but would love to have more oils to make all sorts of things.

  176. Cheryl says

    I have never tried this brand and would have so many uses. I have purchased Young Living essential oils. These sound of high quality and natural.

  177. jo says

    I am learning so many herbal type things these days. I have used lavender oil for years for my headaches. I am looking at medicinal uses of herbs, foods, etc – mostly diabetic. I will try to make my way thru a lot more of the essential oils with their properties and uses. I would love to learn how to make more from scratch (soaps, lotions, etc).

  178. Sheryl M says

    My favorite herb has to be arnica. It seems like I am always rubbing in somewhere. I am also a big fan of echinacea. I buy all my herbs from Mountain Rose and have never been disappointed.

  179. Bethany says

    Hello! I absolutely LOVE lavender oil, it’s my overall fav. It can be blended with so many other EOs to make wonderful blends, but it’s also just great on it’s own!

  180. April says

    I’m a huge fan of lavender. My old violin teacher’s yard was full of them, and the smell is special to me. Thanks for the giveaway!

  181. Megan says

    I would love to win this. I’m just now really getting into EO’s. I have ordered from MRH before, and thought they were wonderful.

  182. Viola Palmer says

    Lemon is zesty clean, reminding one of fresh air and Doris Day. As Doris Day used to sing, “Lemon tree very pretty and the flower it is sweet but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.” Doris Day always had that sweet like the flower appearance and was zesty clean. Doris Day was wise because the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat…so we use it to give everything in our house that zesty clean smell.

  183. Sarah C. says

    Ooo, I love dried lavender in warm rice pouches and peppermint EO for pick-me-ups and lemon EO in cleaners. Mmmmm! Would love to win this! I have so much more to learn!

  184. Stephanie says

    I would love to try the lavender. I could use plenty right now. For example, being a first time mom with a one year old I could use it in the bathroom and bedroom to relax.

  185. Melissa says

    I am a “newbie” at diy/frugal living and have recently began implementing in baby steps so this would be a fantastic win!

  186. Joyce says

    I have been looking for Organic Essential Oils–I can’t believe how many this company makes.! Joyce

    • says

  191. Shari W says

    My favorites are definitly the mints & eucalyptus…and rosemary and lavender! Subscribed, liked and liked! :-)

  192. Andrea says

    I love the few EOs I have, although they are not of a high quality. I have used them in many projects and I hope to continue, this would be an awesome way to experience many new EOs.

  193. ally says

    I love the lavender oils for the way the smell, and their cleaning abilities, as well as tea tree for its cleaning uses!

  194. Gwen says

    I started using your recipes for natural homemade cleaners during the summer but haven’t gotten any essential oils yet. The sample kit would be an awesome way to try many different oils out!

  195. Lynne says

    Unfortunately I’m here in Canada .. Would have loved to be able to enter this giveaway :( .. I enjoy reading your emails and learning how to DIY .. In an environmentally good way. Keep up the good work.

  198. says

    I enjoy lavender oil for it’s healing, relaxing and cleansing properties. Lavender proved useful to counter the personal impact made by hurricane Sandy. I’m new to essential oils. Look forward to learning more & trying the different combinations.

  199. Gary says

    I have a terrible disdain for mice in my garage…my partner has the same sentiments toward spiders. Peppermint oils sprayed around the garage and no pesky critters!

  200. janey says

    I love using EO’s! So far my favorites are tea tree oil for the antibacterial properties in my homemade dishsoap, and peppermint oil in my home toothpaste!
    Still learning about them- but I am sold on their wonderful uses!

  201. pamela says

    I’ve been so interested trying to use essential oils, especially tea tree and grapefruit. I have a new baby at home and have been really trying to go all natural in household cleaners and body care items.

  202. Jessica says

    Would love to win some of these. I have some that I use, especially lavendar, but I constantly want to try other oils out.

  203. Katie says

    My family and I are on an adventure to reduce our carbon footprint and live a more self-sustainable life style. I found your website while looking for homemade toothpaste recipes. I am amazed at all of the really simple recipes to make the products that we use every day. We are already saving money and the environment. I love it! And I love to hear what other like-minded people have to say about their journey to self-sustainability. Thank you for creating this community!

  204. Dolores Dupuis says

    My favorite essential oils are “Tea Tree” and “Peppermint” but getting essential
    oils in the Republic of Panama is every expensive and they are hard to find.
    Ordering anything from the US is VERY expensive and takes a long time and
    we are never sure if what we order will arrive.
    Very challenging and frustrating.

  205. kristen says

    I LOVE peppermint it smells so good and it works perfect for cleaning the house and brushing my teerth! i would love to try some lavender for my babys body wash!

  206. Linda says

    I would love to win this. I have to check your website daily to see what new things you have to share. I get excited learning about natural ways to clean, etc.

  207. says

    I use essential oils in everything. They are so great. I am careful with tea tree because it can cause cats issues (so I hear). I use one oil in a TBSP of milk and add it to my bath. The fat in the milk causes the oil to not float in bubbles on top of the water.

  208. Jane says

    Arnica is my most used herb. I am very excited to start using EO and lavender is one of my favorites.

  209. Willow says

    We have been so blessed to experience the usefulness of essential oils. We use tea tree oil for so many things now and are learning about the benefits of other oils. I am also so excited to have found out about DIY natural!

  210. Ibrahim says

    I would like to see a cannabis oil with the inactive THC. Perhaps it holds an ability for a healthy scalp or maybe the stimulation of capillaries at least.

  211. Christin says

    I find that diluted tea tree oil is great for helping acne as a topical treatment (dab with q-tip) or add it witch hazel for a toner.

  212. Krystal says

    This looks like a great giveaway. I have started making my own body care products and home cleaning items, so this could really come in handy.

  213. Jenn Lee says

    I’m new to EO’s but I’ve been having a blast making homemade body butter, lip balm, shampoo, and acne treatments.

  214. Ell says

    I have thrown out all my cleaners and shampoos and what not, and am going (trying anyways) all natural. I LOVE essential oils am going crazy trying to collect them. Hoping to be a mommy soon, and so trying to get the hubby and myself healthy, great ideas, and great things I’ve found here for that very cause! Thanks!:)

  215. Jennifer Fredrickson says

    I’m new at the natural remedies but am really excited for my journey of living a more sustainable life.

  226. Tiffany says

    I have been making my own natural cleaners for several years but am always looking for new recipes, especially ones which include essential oils.

  229. Sonya says

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

  230. 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.

  231. 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!

  232. 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.

  233. 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.

  234. 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!

  235. Leah says

    All I can say is I absolutely love this site!!! I have been interested in being healthier for a while now. There is just so much I don’t know and not always sure where to start; this site has helped me learn so much! I still have alot to learn so keep the information coming! I would love to win some oils! I’ve been making a few of my household products; I LOVE IT!!!! My next endeavor is make my own toothpaste so some oils would be perfect!!!!

  236. Liza says

  237. 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!

  238. 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!

  239. Elisabeth says

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

  240. Kristi says

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

    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.

  242. says

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

  243. 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 :)

  244. 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.

  245. 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.
