My 8 year old knows her oils!

My 8 year old asks for animal scents ointment when she has a scrape or chapped lips, she requests Joy when she is feeling blue and immediately asks for Thieves when she feels she is coming down with a cold. She even keeps Thieves waterless hand purifier in her locker at school! very cool!

Animal Scents Ointment is a hit in our household as well. If I have a cut or scrape, I no longer use an antibiotic gel or creme. Instead, I pour on a drop of Young Living's lavender oil and a drop of Thieves oil, then a very thin layer of Animal Scents to protect the affected area. It heals really quickly! Our jar seems to last forever, because you don't need to use very much to get the results.

Essential oils, knowns as nature's living energy, are the natural, aromatic violatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The distrinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt to its surroundings. Essential oils are extrated from aromatic plant sources via steam distillation, and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dry herbs. While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and benefits vast - which makes them much more than something that simply smells good. Historically, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. With more than 200 references to aromatics, incense and ointments throughout the Bible, essential oils are said to be used for anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherpay, massage therapy, emtotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions and much more.
