I love using them. While my kids were little little (still only one
and 2 1/2) I made a massage oil for them that had Chamomile,
Lavender, and Geranium in it, and they never got sick! My daughter,
who has been in day care since she was 4 months old, has only missed
about 5 days total due to illness! I also love using it for MYO skin
care products,... My best source for information has been this book:
The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann
Worwood. You can check if your library has it. The best site I have
found (and even with living inside Atlanta, close to health-food
stores, I still buy it from this place, because the prices are better
and I can determine the size) is: http://www.camdengrey.com/
Now, as far as living in the city: I have to speak up for poor
Atlanta! I live 4 miles from down town and love it! I have a 3 mile
commute, my hubby has a 4 mile commute, we ride in together, our day
care is right across the street form his office, I have oodles of
shopping possibilities and can take advantage of all the different
sales, we have restaurants (from cheap cheap to pricey) within 3
blocks form our house, yes we have had our car broken into a few
times, but nothing more serious than that, and our street has had 12
babies born since we moved in and there is a great sense of
community, so I am all for city living (-:
