Discover the Magic of Healing Oils

Heal and soften your skin... Create silky, shiny hair...

Build a healthy body with healing oils...

I discovered that cold-pressed oil could make my skin soft and my hair shiny. As I researched other oils a whole new world of oils opened up to me. I found that oils could heal my skin better than antiseptics in the drug store. I found that what I thought was healthy cooking oil was actually harming me. Now I can’t live without my bottles of healthy, healing oils.

On this site... I have given you information to make it easier to compare and choose the right oil for what you need. There are a lot of good oils out there and I wanted to have information at your finger tips so you might make choices without spending hours digging for information. We are all busy and our time is worth its weight in gold. I wanted to share what I know and hope that you can improve your health and your life.

During my career of over 25 years I have been awed at the healthy and healing organic compounds found naturally in plants and animals. That has been my passion. I enjoy working with people to find alternative medicines found in nature to replace traditional medicine. These traditional medicines can have unpleasant side effects. That’s why I built this site.
