You can order essential oils online from an aromatherapy supplier or you can purchase them from aromatherapy retail stores such as natural health stores or even Amazon.

Here is a quick, easy, and natural homemade hand lotion recipe that you can make at home. I think it’s the best hand lotion recipe you can whip quickly and without too many ingredients.
