Essential Oils for Beginners

I remember when I was first introduced to essential oils. There were so many and so many uses, it was incredibly overwhelming. I even remember thinking there was no way I needed the majority of the oils out there. Sometimes, when things are overwhelming we tend to pull back and not jump in. It is almost counter intuitive that if it takes time to learn, then it’s wasting time. But essential oils have opened up an entirely new world for me in our families health and well being. We’ve been able to handle basic first aid, cold symptoms, naturally boost our immunity, boost our moods and energy levels, and reduce our toxic load. So I’d like to go over the 10 basic oils that every family can benefit from that I always recommend people start with.
