This time of year it begins…the sniffles, the runny noses, and the dreaded stomach flu. I normally try to do as much prevention as possibly by apply Thieves to my children before school and all of us taking vitamins and a probiotic. However, mama has gotten lax on the Thieves application lately. And lo and behold Ella came down with something yesterday. I keep the best essential oils for cold and flu on hand and wanted to share how we use them.
