Essential oils have become so popular that you can find them just about anywhere. But you don't always know the quality and if there is anything else added to them. Plus, you might have some questions. Which oils are best for different moods? Which products are safe for your skin? What kind of carrier oil should you use if you need one?

You can get all of these questions answered while shopping if you go to a specialized wellness store. Check out one of these places right here in St. Louis.
