Hello! I wanted to share with you a little bit about me and my journey with Young Living essential oils.
I was born and adopted in upstate NY and moved to North Carolina in grade school and continue to live here to date. I attended the Univ of Greensboro with a BA in Earth Science/Environmental Studies.
I am an only child and mother to a no fear, compassionate little toddler. Her name is Elara. And I can say that she has made me a better person all around. I was an athlete growing up, a swimmer, who competed in 200 butterfly and 400 IM as my focus in competition. I was fortunate to make it to compete in the Junior Olympics.
I have been in the medical field for 10+ years and when I became pregnant with my daughter I started researching everything. I mean. EVERYTHING. I would stay up sometimes hours in the middle of the night when I was having trouble sleeping and just research. I quickly became that mother who wanted a home water birth, to breastfeed, to baby wear, to cloth diaper, wanted non GMO foods and wanted anything that was going to go on her or in her to be as natural as possible.
It was then that I started hearing more and more about Young Living Essential oils and how they were changing and enhancing people’s lives!
So, naturally….I wanted in!
My Favorite Oil
Trying to think of and share what my favorite oil is pretty hard to do. I currently have over 120 different oils/blends at home and use so many of them daily.
I would have to say at this point in time one of my favorites is Envision. Envision TM stimulates creativity and resourcefulness, encouraging renewed faith in the future and the ability to maintain the emotional fortitude necessary to achieve goals and dreams.
I apply this oil often, I will diffuse when I am working at home and trying to achieve my goals and overcome obstacles.
I even use this one when I am going on a run, doing yoga or finding the focus to get the job done. Whatever that may be!
I have found this oil has given me the faith in my future and what I want to accomplish in life.
It is one that I want to always have with me.
First Oil Success
As I started on my journey of wanting to seek out natural and healthy options across the board in mine and my family’s lives I started trying to find natural alternatives to medicines as well. I started talking to others in the medical field and came across a friend who was a PA and was sharing how I just did not feel like myself on meds when it was that time of the year and I was getting that itchy throat, watery eyes and sneezing fits. She sent me some samples to see if they would help open me up and let me breath better, I also was hoping to lessen my itchy eyes. Then I asked her about helping find s solution for my restlessness and waking up during the night. It seemed like forever since I had not woken up several times in the night and not been restless. She spoke to me about diffusing and the success people were having with it. So I decided to get my starter kit! I was SO excited to try this! Well, my starter kit arrived and the first night I diffused I fell asleep around 10:45 and did not wake up again until around 7:15! I was SO unbelievably happy and relieved I cried tears of joy!
After that I was hooked! Now I use my oils daily. I use them to address all sorts of things in my world. Whether it be when I am not feeling well, moods, focus, motivation, you name it!
These oils have been a life changer in my world and I hope they will be for you as well!
