And, since CBD is an essential oil in its own right, we’ll give you the skinny on that, too. You’ll get to make a couple goodies, along with the recipes to make more.  These are easy to make and are great to use yourself and to give as gifts for teachers, friends, family…  We’ll be making sugar scrubs (for that winter dry skin) and room/linen sprays.
