Essential Oil Education with Tammy Carroll
October 4th 6:30 pm-8:00 pm
During this event we’ll be chatting about some of the ways you can easily make swaps throughout your home and you’ll also have a chance to make a free roller bottle blend of your choice if you’d like! (The cost of rollers will be $5 and we ask that you please bring cash as we will not have a card reader on site.)

Our goal is to teach you some basics about these precious gifts from the earth and how even small changes can have a huge impact on our environment, as well as on ourselves. We hope to see you there!
