In-Home Tutoring is excited to incorporate Young Living essential oils into its product/service offerings.  During our enrollment visits with families  we discovered that a lot of these kids were dealing with anxiety, stress and focus issues and being an essential oils user ourselves,  we have decided to start offering essential oils to our clients along with matching them up with the right tutor.
