Well, it is that time again to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new one. I no longer make resolutions for New Years. Instead, I make goals and put a plan together to meet those goals. My success rate is so much higher this way.
I have a few goals this year. One of which is to get better at supporting my digestive system. Gut health is so important and mine can use a little bit of help. So, I have put a few minor goals as steps in my plan to achieve this goal. The first of which was to look at my essntial oils starter kit. I wanted to see what I already have that will help me support my digestive system, as well as help me with my other goal of getting in better physical shape.
Here is what I learned about the 11 essentials oils that come in the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living.
