As we’ve mentioned in the past, our families have tried to start living a more healthy lifestyle and use more products that are natural. We have shifted our thinking a little and have starting using essential oils FIRST instead of reaching for over-the-counter meds. What we have found, is that most of the time the oils work so much better than the OTC medication without all the chemicals.
Kids hurt themselves A LOT. It’s just the nature of being a child and playing hard. 🙂 If you have kids in sports, you might find that you are dealing with bumps and bruises a little more often, so we have put together a list of helpful oils as a reference.

One of my FAVORITE pain combos is a cream I make with Valor, PanAway and Peppermint. I whip half a cup of coconut oil in my mixer until its very fluffy, then add 10 drops each of Valor, PanAway and Peppermint. It works great on almost any pain!
