Back to School is upon us and with that come anxieties, little aches and pains as well as colds and runny noses. Here are some wonderful safe and natural suggestions I received today from my sponsor Darby, enjoy!

And don’t forget Thieves!!! My friend Liz in NJ rubbed Thieves (diluted 50-50) on her little boy’s chest every day before he went off to school. He had perfect attendacne the whole year, even when other kids were down with colds and flu. When his teacher leaned down to give him his perfect attendance award, she added, “And you always smell like a gingerbread cookie!”
Remember when you place an order of 190 PV this month you get a F.REE bottle of Peace & Calming (perfect for soothing anxious little ones (and grownups) any time, especially at night) , a botle of Peppermint, and a package of Roller-Glides which convert any 15 ml oil into a roll-on!
And ALWAYS remember: Essential Oils can change lives–pass it on!!
