Sometimes using an essential oil feel like magic. The mixing and implementation of these fragrant, soothing concentrated plant extracts can make one feel like an alchemist in a workshop, surrounding by bubbling beakers and jars of ancient potions and powders.
Or a hedgewitch in a cottage deep in the woods, crafting healing tinctures and folk medicine out of invigorating lemon balm, tea tree oil, and relaxing lavender oil.

In more ways than you might think!
