What’s In My “Just-In-Case” Vacation Bag…

We recently went on vacation and as I was packing my "just in case" bag, I thought it would be fun to share what exactly I pack just in case one of us comes down with something while on vacation.  It's just not an option for us to run to a local pharmacy and load up on allergy, cold or stomach bug drugs-not when there's a safe, natural remedy.

Pain Killer Headache Stick!

Headaches are such a bummer.  Unfortunately, I get them all the time-I can't wear a pony-tail without a head ache and I do all my blog posts via the sofa despite my new office space!  I had to find a way to relieve the pain without popping a pill all the time!  I searched and searched and found Dori's blend-Since she's a fellow Spark Naturals user and very essential oil savy-I knew she had the best essential oil blend.  Luckily I had all the oils, mixed it up and experienced immediate relief.  … [Read more...]
