Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I've had many friends and acquaintances ask me recently about how calm my children are. What's my secret? How do I get them to obey?

I know that my kids do get rambunctious, but they always seem to be calm and collected when it really counts. When other kids are ricocheting off the walls and their parents are embarrassedly hushing them and stage whispering threats, I am usually inwardly smiling at my kids' stellar behavior.

I am a firm believer in child training consistently and early. Don't wait until they're 4 and rule the house!

Whereas I find my friends' compliments a great affirmation, I can't take all the credit here. I totally rely on essential oils and dietary supplements. They are lifesavers. We take vitamins and supplements daily. If we forget or run out (God forbid!), I notice. My husband notices. These 7 essential oils are the ones we use daily:

Thieves oil helps our immune systems. We rub it on our feet before bed. We rarely get infections now! When Tori recently got a cold, it was much less than previous years.

Lavender works wonders on the little cuts and scrapes and skin abrasions so common in kids. Alex and Tori have dry, sensitive skin and break out around their mouths periodically, but after a couple days of Lavender oil, it's all gone. Tori knows to dab it on herself when she starts breaking out.

Frankincense helps brain development and heightens spiritual awareness. There's a reason it was a gift to Jesus and it is a precious substance. I put it on my face Sunday mornings before church. Tori loves the scent and often asks me to massage her face with it. It helps moisturize skin better than Oil of Olay!

I use Valor, Joy, and White Angelica like perfume every day to help me conquer negativity and moodiness. I have suffered from low grade depression since I was about 12. I can't tell you how much better I feel since using these oils. I sometimes put Valor on Tori to help her if she's going to be experiencing a tough situation, like our church Christmas pageant. She's painfully shy and it gives her strength to get through it.

Peace & Calming is just that. Ahhh. I use it mostly on Kate to keep her from bouncing off the walls. I often use it in my bath water after a tough week.
