Essential Oils for Disasters - The Ready Center

Article submitted by Shirley Ready @ The Ready Center

If you know my family, you know that we’ve become oily over the last year and a half. Did we strike black gold? Not so much… but I did find a key to keeping my family healthy for years to come.

It all started in April of 2013. The long story short is that I went from floored with a headache to no problems in 20 minutes without any OTC medications. As I did my research, I found that Young Living Essential Oils pure and of the highest quality. What was better to me is that I didn’t even have to worry about any side effects for me or the baby I was carrying.

Essential Oils Dropper - The Ready CenterWhen I brought the oils home, I obviously wanted to my husband to approve, but how would I explain why I chose Young Living and how they contributed to our family’s self-sufficiency? Then I found it. These oils don’t expire while the OTC and prescription medications do.  How is that possible? Because these oils are 100% pure, they kill off mold, bacteria, viruses and anything else that would threaten their shelf life.

The Ready Center Free Stuff 3

Article submitted by Shirley Ready @ The Ready Center

Greetings, faithful Ready Center Blog readers!  Since we last chatted, I’ve been up to my ears in freebies.  I guess I was on a winning streak with my websites and as I type, the freebie bag that I base my articles on is nearly full again!

I last wrote about our huge pile of freebies in April (click here).  Here’s a portion of what I have received since then.  There’s more, but as I said (more…)

The Ready Center Freebie Pic 2

So it has come time to write about more of the free things that companies have sent me over the past two months.  I was hoping to write monthly, but the end of February was a bit dismal in my acquisition of freebies.  The goodie bag in our dining room slowly filled as I watched and waited these last two months.  I don’t open the items for use until I write the article – I’m sure you wouldn’t like to see a bunch of half eaten products and wrappers, so here we go!!!
