However, they don’t really feel like oils at all. Only several such as lemongrass, orange, and patchouli have a yellow or yellowish-brown color, while most are clear.
Essential Oils Fight MRSA
MRSA, the super-bug that has been plaguing hospitals the last few years, has become a thorn in the side of our medical community.
