I particularly like any oils that has eucalyptus in it. The fresh, green and grassy aroma is very calming and soothing to the nerves. I use cleansers and massage oils that has this lovely ingredient which I find lifts up the spirits and at the same time make me feel revitalized light and clean. I would also add my favorite oil to a clean air filter device that uses water filling the air with its lovely scent. 

With just a few drops of essential oils in your homemade face masks can make a run of the mill mask into a spa-like experience. However, to figure out which essential oils will work best on skin types can be daunting. So to make your life easier, here is a list of essential oils for you to try and enjoy.

This is a portrait of a 108 yrs old Englishman. He grew up on a Montana ranch that he later inherited from his father,who lived to 101.

He had 1,500 head of cattle and rode Kentucky-bred horses. Fifty years ago he liked to drink whiskey and gamble.Now he's into fitness;at 102 he was still doing thirty push-ups a day.He walks a mile to church every Sunday in his black cowboy boots,white suit, pink tie and Stetson hat.

"I don't drink, smoke or chase women;" he says, "they chase me."

His face sure does look weather beaten. Do you think maybe, some essential oils will benefit him?
