More specifically, reports that over half of all workers acknowledge having symptoms of pain – and it’s among the most common reasons people miss work.

Well there is a way. These powerful essential oils can help you manage pain in a 100% natural and healthy manner.
For instance, rather than popping a couple Tylenol, try rubbing Peppermint on your temples to get rid of that mind-numbing headache. Arthritis, joint pain, or muscle aches? Massage a quality blend of oils to relieve discomfort in the affected area.

Did you know that the soles of your feet are one of best places to apply essential oils because the pores are so large oils are quickly absorbed. Our entire body is also mapped out on the feet in the form of reflex points. Each point relates to a specific area or function of the body. When essential oils are used on these points on the feet, a signal is sent to the specific area of the body.
