11 Body System Breakdown

All you need to know in order to support your beautiful body perfecting and effortlessly.


In a recent conversation, I was lamenting with a fellow oiler how challenging it can be to remember all the oils, all the #supplements and all the routines I want to implement into my days.

You know how it goes, first you begin to give your thyroid a little love, then someone posts about how amazing Ylang Ylang is for the heart and you remember that your great grandfather had a heart condition so you think, maybe i should support my heart. Seeing an article on hormone function you realize, egads! You haven't checked your levels and maybe now is the perfect time to add in Clary Sage and should you order PD 80/20? Will it help?


If we're not careful, one might end up a nit like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie...

Let me ask you, what is the ONE body system you would like to most support. Yes, yes, I know, it all needs attention. However, in our fast pace world, taking 20 supplements and 100 drops of oil a day might be a touch tricky when you're first beginning to focus on your physical and emotional health.
