Meet Raquel

 
Hi and Welcome,

Let me first start by thanking you for visiting my website; I am so glad that you are here. 
Deciding to embark on a wellness journey can be a big step but it doesn't have to be a scary one, besides you've already made a step in the right direction just by being here. If it weren't for a big step I decided to take 5 years ago, who knows where I would be today. 
Let me tell you a little about myself, I am a single mother of 2 beautiful girls (21 and 12) and life has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride to say the least. In August of 2007 I found myself tragically and suddenly widowed. I had been married for 11 years and all I knew was military life, as my late husband served in the US Army where on his third tour to Iraq, he would not return home. The life I had was completely shattered; and I had no idea how I was going to live and take care of my girls and I (they were 9 and 7 months when he passed away). For many years my oldest daughter and I suffered through so many emotional issues and it even affected my physical health.  

Fast forward to 2013, I hit rock bottom with my health and wellbeing; I was sick and tired of being so very sick and extremely exhausted. My oldest had to take care of me and my youngest on many occasions because I could hardly do anything without it landing me in bed. A dear friend knew I was suffering but she didn't know just how badly I was suffering, as I was at the point of contemplating suicide. My friend introduced me to Young Living and within a week of receiving and using my oils and diffuser, I noticed that I felt a little better. As I kept on using the oils and oil infused supplements daily, I kept getting better and better. The thought of taking my own life vanished, my girls and my family noticed that I was smiling again and even laughing. I noticed that I had many more good days then bad and about 7 months into my wellness journey I realized I had no more symptoms from my illness. 

 I never thought I would ever feel good again, let alone have so much energy and feel so amazingly healthy. I am so very grateful to my friend and to Young Living because I am living and thriving today; living a life full of vigor and vitality. Through my wellness journey I gained a new passion, a passion for life, a passion for living a truly remarkable, happy and healthy life. I now help other people such as yourself, who have come here looking for answers, looking for a better way,  looking to feel better or even looking to have freedom in your life. Make a decision today to embark on your wellness journey with me, you don't want to wake up a year from now wishing you had started it then. You won't know what your life could be like if you don't take the next step. Together we can empower and encourage others to live their lives to the fullest because we all deserve to feel amazing and be truly happy.

"Do something today that your future self will thank you for"
