I must have been the only person in the world that didn't know a thing about essential oils. That is until a friend heard I was down with a head cold and came to my rescue. I admit after using the oils I was still a bit of a skeptic, but then I was hit with a relapse and I decided instead of taking something that was going to leave me in a fog, I'd give the oils another try. After my second experience with using the oils I became a believer of what oils can achieve & decided to buy my starter kit. I remember my grandmother using oils on me when I was a kid for everything from a cough to bee stings so I'm not sure why I was so hesitant. Once I received my starter kit I decided to see how I could incorporate into our everyday living besides diffusing. I've started using the oils to make my own cleaning products. Eliminating items in our home that are not environment friendly or tested on animals is important to us. It was a goal I had set for myself a year ago, but finding it hard to achieve. There's also the added benefit of not spending all that money on pricey cleaning products. With all my reading, researching and assistance from other savvy moms we are slowly reaching our healthy & natural lifestyle goal. Is there something in your life you'd like to change for the better?
