As both a Christian and a wellness advocate, it’s important to me that people feel our genuine concern for their needs. While sharing essential oils is a source of income for us, we should always focus on others’ needs, not what we can “get” from them. One thing I love about this business is the new opportunities it has given us to show kindness- God has provided more income to reach out to others, the ability to meet many physical and emotional needs, and creative new ways to give gifts.
Last year, my mom developed a beautiful new gift to share, relating the essential oils of the Bible to the account of Easter week. It is the Easter Roll-on, a blend of essential oils that produce a grounding, calming effect.
Here are the specific oils, with their correlation to Easter Week and a few of their benefits. (See the source link for more benefits of each.)

“[….]that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
“’O Death, where is your sting? O [Grave], where is your victory?’ The sting of death is sin […] But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved […], be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:55-58
