  • Hello Diane! Thank you for catching our mistake! Keep on letting us know any issues you see!

  • LeslieB

    I’m formulating a 5 year plan (hopefully sooner) and have put it into action. If I can only buy one of the above olsl to motivate me, keep me on track, and moving toward my goals which would you suggest?! Help!

    • Hello Leslie! It is inspiring that you are trying so hard to work toward your goals. Honestly, all the oils are wonderful and we have a hard time choosing just one as well, so we feel you pain! You won’t be able to go wrong with any of them, but if you are wanting a warmer and more grounded scent, I would go with Magnifying Your Purpose. If you want an oil that stimulates creativity, choose Envision. If you want a feeling of alertness with scents of Basil, Rosemary and Peppermint, choose Clarity. I suggest looking up each of the oils listed in this post on the product guide. It will help you to see the ingredients of each oil blend and better discern what oils you think you will like the most. My favorite out of them is Magnify Your Purpose, but that is just my personal preference. Hope that helps and thanks for stopping by!

  • Mary Deen

    Is there an actual “Start The New Year with Essential Oils” notebook such as the one in the picture at the top of this page? If so, how can I get one?

    • Hi Mary Deen, Great question. We currently do not have an actual “Start The New Year with Essential Oils” notebook like the one shown in the top image of this blog post. We’ll keep your suggestion in mind for the future. Thanks for stopping by!

    I use Valor to help me gain the courage to even dream that I am fulfilling GOD’s purpose for me here on this Earth.
