I thought I knew everything there was to know about essential oils. They've been an important part of my life ever since I lived in new Delhi, India when I was four years old. My childhood there smelled like Jasmine and frankincense. And I also remember the neem oil that was put on my skin to soothe it when I had a wreck.

Today I use essential oils all throughout the day, whether it's to enhance my mood by diffusing them into the air. Or whether it's for beauty, by applying them to my skin, such as rose oil or to help my immune system, for example, with oil of oregano.

And until I came across Jodi Cohen, I thought I was kind of an expert on all things essential oils.

Turns out I was not!
