Having a relaxing facial needn't cost the world. In fact, you don't even have to leave your house!

I love using essential oils in my home. I use them in cleaning products, beauty products and in my diffuser to boost mood. But can just a few drops of plant-derived oils really kill germs, fight acne and reduce stress? It seems a little pseudo-sciencey, too good to be...
