TOP TEN OILS

More and more people are realizing that they have to take charge if they want to have vibrant health. And by vibrant health, we mean a strong immune system easily capable of fighting off viruses and bacteria, plenty of energy, mental clarity, deep restorative sleep and a body free from stiffness, aches and pains. Unfortunately the current 'healthcare' system is more of a 'sickcare' system'. So we need to look to other resources to help us. Essential oils can help us achieve all of the above. Look below at some of the uses of the top ten oils, but bear in mind that we are restricted in what we can say about essential oils in a public forum.
