Cedar Wood Essential Oil and Blends

Finally we are leaving the white snow behind and the daylight shines more. I start to see the cherry blossom and some tulips in my neighbor’s yard. I began my indoor gardening with some seeds and buds a few weeks ago. To be honest, it gives me some assurance whenever I see the results of my regular watering that I can bring more living energy to the world. (my young adulthood experience on pets and plant-caring is not something I am proud of)
