Betty Sy gives us the four-one-one on essential oils

Two years ago, Betty Sy got intrigued by essential oils. Before purchasing her first batch, she researched about oils—which did what, which one is best for specific situations, and the like.

Today, she is a distributer of multiple international brands, including Absolute Essential and Amara.
