Gone are the days when essential oils were reserved for the DIY-crazy, granola-leaning crowd. Given the substantial scientific research to back up their efficacy for all manner of issues from anxiety to sleep to skincare, it's time to start including these potent plant concentrates in your routine if you aren't already.
