Thanks for stopping by! I’m Kate, and I am fascinated by all things “natural health and wellness”. Here’s a little bit of my story… In my early twenties I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and hypothyroid, and then a few years later with Lupus. Recently, through the help of my functional medicine doctor, I’ve realized many of my auto-immune diseases and symptoms were due to mold toxicity and an overload of toxins in general. Due to genetic variations, my body simply could not clear mold and toxins like most people’s do. The toxic buildup overtime had wreaked havoc on my body. So lately, my biggest focus has been on detoxifying the body.
Anyway, all of these illnesses over the past decade caused me to read, research, and Google my way into finding answers for myself! I was desperate, and NOT finding what I needed at the doctors office. In fact, the more medications they gave me, the sicker I became! I used to think a “magic pill” could fix anything, and that doctors had all the answers.
Oh, was I WRONG! I became my own health advocate, and I found that the true way to find balance and wellness is through diet, lifestyle, and natural solutions that have been used throughout the world for thousands of years! I was open to any natural alternatives…and on my search for knowledge I was introduced to Young Living essential oils in 2014! How had I never heard of these oils before?! I was shocked! Where have these amazing little bottles been hiding all my life?! I have been obsessed ever since. I jumped on the oil train, and I’m so glad I did! Now I love sharing my story of how these oils have changed my life, and how they continue to help my family stay above the wellness line!
I am a full-time Mama to three young kiddos. I’m an active member in our church, and I love quality time with family and friends. Summer concerts, backyard cookouts, long walks, and patio dinners are some of my favorite scenes. I was an adoption counselor for many years, but I realized this demanding job was taking a toll on my health. So, in 2016 I left my social work career to focus more on my health and my family. I quickly realized that I could turn my love for oils into a fulfilling career where I still get to help people, but while prioritizing my health and my kiddos at home! It has been the perfect move for me, and I am ecstatic that I can walk alongside others on their wellness journey.
I would love to chat with you about your wellness journey and how you can start using oils to bring enhanced balance and wellness to your home!
My Favorite Oil
My fave is Stress Away. I could bathe in it…it smells so good! I diffuse it almost daily, and I wear it as perfume (since I cannot wear real perfume anyway). It calms me down, and makes me Hap Hap Happy! Ahhhhh!
First Oil Success
I fell in love with the oils the very week my Premium Starter Kit arrived. I used every oil in the kit that week, and I was amazed at all the successes I was seeing!
I was very skeptical, so I kept testing things over and over because I felt like the “oil wins” were just too good to be true. They really DID live up to the hype and so much more! I was hooked!
