The world can be a tough and dangerous place. It is not as though as we intentionally try to live more dangerous, it just kind of… happens.
We have seen more than enough natural disasters over the past decade just to realize that none of us is immune and Mother Nature is not as selective. There are numerous other crazy-scary events which occur not to be natural. Sickness, nuclear meltdowns, civil unrest, war – all these things are a part of our sphere of reality.
Rather than feeling fear when you thought of these frightening and disruptive events, you prepare! This is not unintentionally.
Being prepared must be intentional and purposeful. It does not happen by chance and it does not happen without even a little bit of work coupled with resources, thought and time. What about the payback? Well, the payback is that if a sometimes disaster comes along you will be ready and able to take care of your family and yourself. It is your own life.
Think about the health needs of your family, and ask yourself the following questions…
1. What would you do if one of your children is experiencing an asthma attack and you could not find the inhaler?
2. What would you do if someone in your family has developed a certain bacterial infection and there is no medical help available?
3. What would you do in case of a really bad toothache and you do not have an access to a dentist?
4. How would you handle the anxiety and stress associated with some natural disaster, economic crisis or man-made disaster?
All these questions bring us to today’s article topic. We are about to present a big list of essential oils which can help you in, sort of, survival situations, together long with suggested uses.
