Wright lives in a small Colorado mountain town that is filled with holistic healers and artists. I was introduced to Essential Oils over 15 years ago when recovering from a bad car accident and minor concussion. I incorporated many Essential Oils with pain relief properties into my healing journey after this accident.
I continue to use them for many purposes including healing my body, sleeping deeply at night, and for naturally cleaning my home and office spaces.
I would like to share with you some of the many success stories from my personal experience and other friends’ healing journeys that demonstrate how Essential Oils have worked to help us to regain or maintain optimum health.
