    Create Your Own Essential Oils

    Tom from Aura Cacia shared a simple at home distillation process to create your own 'essential oils' using fragrant plants from your garden. Lavender, Mints, Geranium, and Rose are good ones to experiment with. The oil concentration is much less, but the fragrant water can be enjoyed and used just the same.
