How Essential Oils have supported our ECO. communities health
"ECO. has been a huge part of my long road to recovery. 150 days ago, my life was saved by an organ donor after 12 years of chronic illness. I have been in and out of hospital with my trusty rollerballs, and housebound with nothing but my oils to create my healing sanctuary."
