When it comes to essential oils, it is always a case of “different strokes for different folks”.  Indeed, the therapeutic properties of essential oils are so varied and diverse that it can be difficult to decide which ones to stock in your cabinet. Some oils are versatile, while others are known to work on specific systems. Some are gentle, while others are strong. Some work on the muscles, while others work on the mind.
