My essential oil journey began…
November 30th, 2016.
I was in a place in my life where I was searching for natural options for my family. My son had been diagnosed a couple years earlier with ADHD. After jumping from medication to medication with severe side effects I knew the medication route wasn't the one for him. Then my dad got diagnosed with cancer and my search for better options began.
I started off researching and learning about the additives in our food and ways to eat a more real food diet. This got me to thinking about not only the food we were eating but the products we were using in our home and on our skin. I printed off the list of "no, no ingredients" and I hit the aisles of Wal-Mart, Target and Kroger. OH MY. This wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Reading labels and trying to remember what was ok and not ok. It was very overwhelming and I wanted to give up.
In my research I stumbled upon essential oils. I had no idea what they were and how I could use them. I mean, honestly, I thought they were just like candles and used to make your house smell pretty. Then I heard you could use them to help support your body naturally and I was ready to learn more. However, it took me over 2 years to finally attend a class.
I attended my first class, ordered my kit and here I am today! Making my house smell pretty AND supporting my body with these little bottles of oil. These oils are a #1 in my self-care routine. Not to mention I have been able to ditch and replace just about ALL the products we use in our home with natural plant based options! Easy peasy... no more being overwhelmed in the grocery store aisles.
What Essential Oils Do I Use?
I use Young Living essential oils.
I was introduced to Young Living Essential oils by a dear friend. I had no idea there were so many brands of oils and never gave much thought to where and how the plants were grown or even how the oil made its way into that little bottle. I decided on Young Living because I trusted my friend and I respected her opinion.
Once I started using essential oils and learning how Young Living oils are different than other companies I realized I am SO grateful for my friend steering me into the right direction. It turns out not all essential oils are created equally. In fact, even when the label says "pure" essential oil it doesn't mean it is 100% pure!! There can be hidden additives and fragrances. I promise you DO NOT want those oils in your home and you DO NOT want to be diffusing or applying those oils to yourself or family.
