Plus a Q+A With Ceramicist Jessie Lazar
In Just the Essentials, our founder Adina Grigore notes that the simplest way to integrate essential oils into your life is to just smell ‘em. Yep, pop open a bottle, take a whiff, and be done with it. In many cases, the smell will be pleasing – but that’s not the whole story, which is what makes essential oils so darn amazing.Read More›
