Choosing the right Oils is Essential

We all know that smell has the power to evoke feelings, perhaps the same scent brings out different emotions for different people, like that of freshly mowed lawns, the first summer rain hitting the warm tar mac, puppy breath ,that one probably gives us all the same warm loving feeling, but you get my drift.
