Replacing over the counter meds with Young Living Oils

Make the Switch!
Do you wish you had an all-natural home and lifestyle?
Young Living has over 400 all-natural, organic, 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils, supplements, and personal care products. Once you begin “reforming” your medicine cabinet and switching to all-natural products and essential oils, you’ll wonder why in the world you didn’t make the switch earlier! The essential oils listed in this post only refer to therapeutic grade essential oils. Lower quality oils are often toxic and not suitable for medicinal use, so I only recommend Young Living, a company whose products I trust!

    honey is good for the throat when you are coughing. it is all natural as well. i like organic solutions.

    Herbs are great natural medicines, it’s what people used before pharmaceutical drugs were invented. Too bad we’ve gotten so far away from using the earth to heal us & relying on some chemical concoctions doctors are all too eager to prescribe.
