I’ve been using Essential Oils to help support my clients for awhile now. It’s amazing to me the difference it’s made! Here’s the guide (taken from Modern Essentials) I generally use… I always order my oils (from doTerra) by the 25th of each month. I get them at wholesale price and order for clients and friends at no additional cost (I make nothing.) If you’d like any additional information or if you’d like me to order something for you just shoot me an email- firstname.lastname@example.org
