Essential oils

I currently use young living oils. What else is out there that is 100% pure (no fillers etc) that is at a more affordable price point?

Don't waste your money on (snake) oil. 😜

 Some oils do work. I'm a chronic migraine sufferer. I'm on preventative medication but I still get attacks. Peppermint oil is my best friend. It shortens the attack and helps with the nausea.

 The placebo effect is amazing! If you believe it will work, it will. So you and the oil merchants both win.

 Whatever! Why is it then since I was a child before I knew of oils helping sicknesses in any way, did the minties lollies always make my car sickness feel better.
I'm not one that believes in oils curing cancer or diseases, but I tell you what, if they make you feel better and the doctor says it's alright to use with medication why not use them. It's not about them stopping the sickness, it's about making the medical problem a bit easier to deal with.
Do you not believe lavender can calm, or eucalyptus can clear nasal congestion? Did you ever use a humidifier wither oils with young children who have colds? Do you use Vicks vapor rub? Guess what..... oils are helping!

 No I don't use any of those things and don't think they work. But you do you.

 It amuses me that you can't see how "but I believe they work, and they work for me!" actually proves my point.

The plural of 'anecdote' is not 'data'.
