6 Essential Oils I use Daily

I use essential oils throughout my day whether I’m diffusing at my desk, or sipping them in my water, or applying Frankincense to my face after a shower or Balance to the soles of my feet before Yoga.  They help me sleep, keep me calm, uplift my mood and improve my focus. 

I'm beyond grateful that I'm empowered to be advocate for my family's wellness.

Here are six of the oils I use every single day...
