I am glad to share what I found to help others, but that is my only motivation to help get oils into your life as this article recommends.

    EO’s are so great. One other way is to get them in by just consuming plants that have them and consuming them. There are also fish that have these too, they are a good source, but again, sadly you have to beware.
