If life gets more simple, it only improves. Take for instance the breathtaking relief of a simple day ... one that allows you to focus on priorities, be present in the moment and move through your schedule at a comfortable pace. For most of us, that kind of time is a treasure. Or how about the directed energy of simple tasks – such as peeling carrots for dinner and planting flowers in the yard? The soul-feeding satisfaction of simple joys are what make life worth living … a warm hug, a word of encouragement, an early morning walk. Simple is good.
That’s why at Sacred Life we love to offer simple solutions. We want to help you find joy in an uncluttered, minimal and manageable lifestyle, if it’s what you choose. We offer pre-mixed blends of your favorite essential oil singles to use on your skin – this means you don’t have to do any of the dilution work yourself, and your oils are ready to use as soon as they come out of the box.
The elementary elegance of Sacred Life’s Single Roll Ons make embracing natural solutions more simple. They are ready to use without fuss, mess, measuring or mixing on your part. We’ve blended these essential oils with pure fractionated coconut oil at a potent 10% dilution (stronger than the typical 3%) so that you can enjoy a targeted, potent effect from these flexible natural tools. Normally, to use these oils, you’d have to determine a proper dilution for your skin, research and purchase a carrier oil, measure and mix the ingredients and store them in a purchased bottle. But you can use these convenient products on your skin straight out of the box
