Why You Should Never Buy Essential Oils from Amazon

Do you buy essential oils from Amazon? It makes sense, doesn’t it? They are just as high quality and so much cheaper, right? Wrong. Almost everyone who has approached me, interested in the business side of essential oils, has encountered this concern. Why would people buy from me when they can buy cheaper from Amazon […]
