Where can I get them?

You can get essential oils at any grocery store like Walmart or Meijer near the vitamins. Or you can find them at pharmacies like CVS and Walgreens in the same section. But the best place to get them is in bulk on Amazon. This way you aren’t spending $7-$12 a bottle. Instead, you’ll spend around $20 for nine different oils. Which is a good bargain if you ask me.
