Young Living Essential Oils | Guest Post and #Giveaway from The Encouraging Home

Today I’m participating in the Ultimate Blog Swap. You’ll find me posting over at The Simple Homemaker about a healthy, simple, and tasteful recipe; and I’m excited to welcome Mary from The Encouraging Home to Coping with Frugality:

Essential oils are a wonderful addition to your family’s health cabinet. One of my favorites and one that no home should be without is Lavender. Lavender is the most versatile of all essential oils and is known as the “universal oil“.
