Growing Up Healthier with Essential Oils Safe & Natural Choices for Kids of All Ages Presented by: Marty Harger March 2011
Essential Oils Offer A Complimentary & Safe Approach A great addition to the healthy choices you make for your family Good for the planet! Easy to use at home and to learn Only need a few things to get started Compliment, vs conflict with medically-prescribed drugs “One drop of essential oil, performing some task of healing, falls into the pool of general knowledge, and ripples out, touching others. This is how aromatherapy is today. The ripples are getting stronger, and spreading further, because aromatherapy works.” ---Valerie Ann Worwood, author of “Aromatherapy for the Healthy Child”
