I wanted to write about my top 10 essential oils that I think are indispensable… perfect for your family and for your first aid kit. As we love the movie What About Bob.. here are some baby steps to help you start stocking up on some crucial essential oils.

Valor is called “chiropractor in a bottle” This is used to help with back pain. It has been given that nick name because it aligns our physical, mental and emotional bodies electrically in the body.

Frankincense is a very special oil.. not only is it good for cancer, skin cancer, warts, head trauma, scars, and for wrinkles. Good for a concussion….also great when you are praying.
