Nighttime Relaxing Diffuser Blend

Bergamot is one of the brightest, sunniest important oils I know … however it’s likewise a little bit shy when it comes to being out in the sun; you see, it’s a phototoxic essential oil.

The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.” Young Living Essential Oils…
