Family Essential Oil Blend
Kim says, "I love these essential oils. I know these oils are of the best quality. Courtney has really done her best to make these oils affordable for everyone and that means a lot. I have a niece that was born with a lot of issues. She is a trach and vent patient and she is 13 but is on about a 5 yr old level. She has times where she can get out of control. We got the family and when she gets agitated we put this in her and it has really helped. She calms down quicker. Her mom( my sister) has MS and it is hard for my sister to physically handle her when she gets like this so I am so grateful this oil is helping with that."

This is a blend that Courtney came up with to use on her adopted son. "He was having a hard time coping with the huge changes in his life and as a result had a lot of fear and anger." She chose essential oils that are commonly used for anxiety, stress, mental clarity and emotional regulation.
This blend has shown itself beneficial to people of all ages that have been through traumatic events, not just those in the adoptive world.
