Essential Oils to Address Complaints of...

I have been using essential oils since before they were popular.  My mom is real hip to the latest stuff and back in the 70s, I had a box of essential oils, maybe it was a hippy thing, even though I was just a child and not a true hippy at all.  My mom was a Young Living consultant and I still have a couple of oils from them.  My family spent an awesome day at the Lavender Days in Utah, but that's for another post.  And from Melaleuca, my favorite bottle of tea tree oil.  And I even have some dōTERRA oils.  I am an essential oil user, not a seller. 

I want to share a list of complaints of ailments and which oils to use to help combat the issue.  Here goes:
