I am a bit obsessed with Essential Oils. I use them every day. I have a diffuser pretty much in every room of my house, and one at my desk at work. I have roll-on’s everywhere, and my daughter even has a couple.
I recently discovered how little so many know about them over all. As I grow my cabinet of oils I will share some insight on the oils I buy, how they can be used, what I use them for, and other things they can help with.

How to use:
You can Apply to Vita Flex Points and/or directly on area of concern. or diffuse. You can also use orally if using a HIGH grade oil and states it is safe for consumption. You would simply dilute one drop oil in 1 tsp. honey or in 4 oz. of beverage (i.e. soy/rice milk). I add mine into my yogurt and honey in the mornings.
Consult a physician before using this blend if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or suffering from a medical condition. Do not apply to areas of sensitive tissues. Not for children under six years old; use with caution and in greater dilution for children 6 years old and over.
Avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours after use. Can cause extreme skin irritation.
