How it all began, essentially….
On the journey to living a holistic lifestyle I have always been intrigued by alternative medicines that go against the grain of modern remedies. Granted, working in the medical field, I 1000% understand the interventions that are administered and the reasons behind them. In general, society lets their health go beyond maintenance into the critical window where it’s no longer maintenance but a life or death situation. However, pharmaceutical companies have us completely codependent on a lifestyle of prescriptions. We tend to forget the basic building blocks to life: living of the land God gave us. This includes both diet and medicinal resources. They are what fundamentally what big pharma aims to duplicate in chemical form. Because ESSENTIALLY that is what prescriptions are…. Artificial forms of natural purpose.
This leads me to my most recent discovery. In the big picture I have used this in my life on the regular, but investing into any company and living paycheck to paycheck absolutely limits the amount of faith you will extend to the unknown. And everyone is working an angle, or so that feels when you have $5.00 to last you the week in groceries, gas and (oh, yea) the baby needs diapers. However, when I was introduced Young Living essential oils it wasn’t because I was new to the essential oil world. It was I had never known a product that was quality.
I can honestly say that I loved the smell of Lavender my whole life until I purchased budget friendly oil from a local store and it gave me an immediate headache. What I didn’t know was that quality was also budget friendly and PURE. I am very happy I made the leap to find out.

It began when a friend of mine (also a very crunchy mama) was posting on Facebook about the quality of sleep she was getting. Not only for her- but her children. She had always engaged in uphill battles at bedtime with ridiculously tired children. Every parent knows that an overtired child is the absolute worst kind to put to bed. With that being said, she went from crazy to calm almost instantly. I asked her what the heck she might have done differently that I needed to discover the secret to. She as well has three children, runs a family-owned business from home and has a very, very, very busy toddler. When she gave me her recipe for a diffuser, I was very curious and accepted. She also gave me some information about where she got it from and I looked into it.
Personally, I was nervous. I always felt that I was obligated to spend a fortune in oils in order to get my end goal and to be honest I haven’t been in a position to be relaxed with my coin purse in a very long time, enough to splurge on something as extra and extravagant as an essential oil. So I procrastinated and kept putting off the commitment. I was also in my second semester, ridiculously sleep deprived and in need of an answer. ANY ANSWER!
A new starter kit was introduced. It included a bountiful of essential oils and a DIFFUSER. The price was unbeatable. It also qualified me to get distributor prices without the commitment of pushing product on other people. Now I get to enjoy quality essential oils at a 20% discount and there is an opportunity to grow if interested.
To be honest, I do oils for me. I do them for my children. And as much as my husband thought I was bat $%!^ crazy- he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the significant difference it made in sleep, grease burns and skin abrasions. I do them for my family, for healthy living. Not for anyone else. The benefits have by far exceeded my expectations. I sleep better, have improved immunity and promoted vascular circulation.
Having included oils in my everyday routine and utilizing them against the MANY diseases that make themselves available to me in a hospital setting was the best use. I also use them on my children and most recently treated a horribly infected facial laceration that improved dramatically within 12 hours. People have been using essential oils since the days of Jesus. Yes, Frankincense is mentioned in the Bible at least 68 times. I can’t help but be that Mom that carries them around or suggest to my friend’s alternatives that I know can make bounding improvements for a quality lifestyle. So if you are interested in any way, shape or form or just curious about information on Young Living or essential oils- PLEASE feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to assist in any way possible.
