O N E Year- My Story

MY STORY

 O N E year ago today

Many people think it is overwhelming or intimidating the whole oil thing, I have been there! But with a community full of support and resources, it’s been an amazingly fun adventure!

When I made the decision to purchase my starter kit I knew I wanted to use the oils for their air cleansing benefits in an effort to ditch my candle addiction.  My husband would have headaches from some of the candles, so I was trying to find an alternative for making my house smell good.  Enter Thieves!  Thieves essential oil is a blend exclusive to Young Living and it smells like cinnamon drenched orange rolls-it’s warm and spicy and I absolutely LOVE it!

Two weeks after purchasing my starter kit I found out I was pregnant.

As soon as I knew I was pregnant I was even more determined to rid our home of chemicals.  I also knew I wanted to be a stay at home mama and soak up all those memories that are so fleeting.  I used oils all through my pregnancy and love showing mamas to be what I did and what helped.

I had also just put my two weeks in at my job (didn’t know I was pregnant at the time) I was looking for something else that I could somehow enjoy.  My sister had purchased her starter kit a few months before me and told me she was going to give the business side of oils a go!  I immediately said I would too!  I decided I was going to start sharing what our family was doing with these oils and natural products and how it has forever changed our life!

Since that day I have worked hard at sharing with other mamas and families about how life changing these oils can be if you are actually looking for a change!  Consistency is key, in really all aspects of life, but especially with seeing the benefits of these oils.

I want to be someone who others can count on to show up and that this is a lifestyle, not a trendy phase.

Many people believe these oils are new & trendy when in reality people have been using oils for centuries! Essential oils are used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness benefits. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. I have found so much support with oils for emotions, immunity and sleep to name a few.

Doing this as a business has been very rewarding.  I get to help families live healthier lives and show them this beautiful opportunity of sharing what they love about the oils with others too!

This has afforded me the opportunity to be a stay at home mom, to continue using my oils, continue learning and sharing.  I share these oils to help other mamas have this opportunity too, a stay at home income and best of all wellness!
