Top 10 Essential Oils for Health and Survival

Many practitioners of alternative medicine are now encouraging the use of essential oils for minor ailments such as wounds, insect bites, nausea, headaches, digestive disorders and more. This is not hocus pocus. We are talking about the use of pure essential oils from plants and flowers that adapt to nature organically. It is our opinion that essential oils will become an important line of defense that will insure our health and well-being over the long term.

A wonderful tidbit about EOs is that they don’t contain any fatty acids that can turn rancid or mold AND the environment of a pure EO is too tough for bacteria to grow in. Most essential oils will outlive you and I. There is no shelf life for pure plant essence with the exception of citrus EOs which should be replaced annually. This is a very special benefit and, an economical one! When you invest in pure essential oils you’re providing your family a security and empowerment knowing that you can take care of most health needs efficiently, without side effects. Be Safe, be Well!
