Using essential oils worked so poorly for us the first time that we decided to spend more of our money on more of what doesn’t work. This is how we educated, “on the cutting edge of all things common sense” roll.
The problem, is that even in our own like-minded circles we are overwhelmed with options and that desperate need to have every single essential oil known to man on hand. After all, there are 200 million things that could happen to our kids, so we need at least 67 oils on lock so we’re even remotely equipped to address them.
