Essential oils are a must-have for mothers. There is good reason behind all the hype!
They are amazing and have helped me and my family in so many ways. When my boys were babies we seemed to get the dreaded croup or RSV every year. With the help of oils we could always get through the germs without any major problems. I am so thankful for the knowledge I have about oils.
It is so nice to have the power to help yourself and your family.
