[oil names and uses]

A girlfriend initially introduced me to the Young Living essential oils. At first, I was skeptic thinking these “magical oils” were overly priced and wouldn’t work. As a migraine sufferer, my mom finally put her foot down and secretly ordered me Peppermint & M-Grain. To put it lightly, I am loving them – so much that I became a member. I ordered the premium starter kit which included a home diffuser. A couple months later and I’ve gravitated towards a few favorites (Peppermint, Lemon, M-Grain & Purification), but I wanted to do some of my own research to find out how I can use the other oils I’m currently barely looking at.

My oil kit came with the below oils(+) and I recently bough three more oils(^) to add to my collection. Below are the uses I found online to be informative and helpful.
