Do you like essential oils, but cringe in horror when you see the neat bomb they cost? You can say goodbye to commercially made products and make your favourite essential oil at home, with practically zero effort.

Those aromatic oils they use at spas or salons, is there any way you can get them? Yes, you can purchase them in stores or online, but why would you want an expensive bottle of essential oil when you can easily make one at home, that too at less than half the price?
