It's that time of year again when you’re probably saying to yourself “where did summer go?” All of a sudden there’s lots to think about and you are moving quickly to get all your ducks in a row. As you shop for school supplies, new outfits and shoes, don’t forget to stock up on your essential oils to avoid the sick-o blues! doTERRA's Top 10 foundational oils are what I call "very important preventative supplies" because really, who likes to get sick? Instead of your kiddos (or yourself) getting stuck on the sidelines this year with a thermometer sticking out if their mouth, get in front of the ball and make sure you're giving them (and you) what they need to combat those germs!
To help you, I wanted to write this blog to share with you how doTERRA's high quality, certified, pure therapeutic grade Top 10 Essential Oils can help you and your kiddos in so many different ways. What I call the Essential 10, comes in doTERRA’s Top 10 Big Bottle Kit, Home Essentials, or Top 10 Small Bottle Kit, Family Essentials. The Big Bottle Kit also includes a diffuser and is 3x the value! Plus, I've added a few other must-have oils that I just love and which have proven time and time again to be so effective! You will also find a few recipes which will keep your home or classroom air purified from germs, or to help set the mood during times of study, nap or bedtime.
