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"

March Oily News

Happy March,

What if improving your health was as simple as use this, not that? Or as simple as grabbing a (better) product and using it every day?
After my diagnosis 7 years ago, I did tons of research for myself because doctors had no idea what caused my illness. My research led me to learning about how a build up of toxic chemicals was to blame for so many illnesses and issues that more and more people are suffering from today. As I started eliminating the harmful products and switching to healthy good products, I started noticing a positive difference in my health.  So many are lead to believe that just by eating healthy and exercising are your go to for healthy living, but that is simply not the case. There is so much more you can do for you and your family's overall health and wellness. It's very important to use healthy toxic free products on your skin and in your home too.
I want to give you some great tips on how you can not only go green, recycle and reuse but also how to support your health while doing so. It’s super simple!

Before we dive in, here is our NEW MEMBER NOTE!

Monthly Giveaway

Our 2 winners for February's Giveaway are... Drumroll please!!!!

Sandy Cooper and Maria Glover
Sandy won a fun diamond topped pen with a YL branded journal and Maria won a bottle of one of my favorite oils, Abundance!
These ladies both are taking advantage of the wonderful benefits of Essential Rewards and placed an order of at least 100PV in February gaining them free products, points back on their order, discounted or free shipping and an entry in our monthly giveaway, whoo hoo!!! It truly pays to live a healthy lifestyle with Young Living!

For this month I will be adding in a special gift for any of our members who take advantage of the extra perks when you place your order of at least 50PV on Essential Rewards. To our members who have been taking advantage of ER already with at least 3 consecutive months of orders, you are not forgotten so be on the look out next month for an appreciation gift from me!  
As always every month if you place an order of at least 100PV, your name will be placed in the Monthly Giveaway!!!  If you ever need help with your orders or starting with ER, please don't hesitate, I am here to help you every step of your wellness journey.

Use This, Not That!

This month we want to focus on just how easy it can be to take those Small Steps that will equal BIG Changes!!  It really can be as simple as Use This, Not That!
Have you ever heard of Bioaccumulation??  Here is a quick little science lesson, if you will.  Bioaccumulation is “when a harmful substance gets absorbed by an organism (your body) at a higher rate than it can be excreted.”  When we are constantly exposing our bodies to the harmful chemicals found in our everyday use products these are accumulating at a faster rate than our bodies can get rid of them. We can oftentimes be exposed to up to 300 different chemicals a day, and most of us don’t even realize it! How can your body thrive when it is exposed to so many toxins?
Consider making the switch! Start slow . . . identify those products you use most often and use the Young Living product instead that is infused with essential oils and is actually working with your body to support your overall health and wellness! Here are some switches you may want to make first:
  • Household cleaners ~ Thieves Household Cleaner 
  • Toothpaste ~ Thieves Aromabright, Dentarome, or Dentarome Ultra or Kidscents for the littles
  • Mouthwash ~ Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash
  • Shampoo/Conditioner ~ Lavender, Lavender Mint or Copaiba Vanilla
  • Deodorant ~ AromaGuard Meadow Mist or Mountain Mint                                        

Recycle & Reuse 

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE making my own roller blends!! Did you know that you can reuse your empty 5 ml and 15 ml oil bottles to create your own roll-ons and custom blends?
In your Virtual Office, you can purchase a 10 pk of AromaGlide Roller Fitments (Item #4578) that you can use to replace the plastic orifice reducer in your oil bottles once they are empty.  Soak your bottles in warm water with a few drops of Lemon essential oil for 10 minutes. Peel off the label and replace it with one of your own, add your essential oils and top off with your favorite carrier oil, pop on the roller top and you are good to go!
You can also reuse your empty Thieves Household Cleaner bottles! Yep . . . most standard spray tops will fit right on your empty Thieves cleaner bottle.

Featured Oil of the Month: OOLA GROW

“When you stop growing you start dying.” ~ William Burroughs
Oola®** Grow™ essential oil blend gives you courage to focus on the task at hand and helps you move toward positive advancement and progression in many aspects in your life. 
Perfect to diffuse as you get ready in the morning or in your office. Add 4-6 drops of oil to your diffuser and enjoy the scent of 23 different oils that promote feelings of happiness, empowerment, and acceptance.
PRO TIP: If you love Oola Grow, check out the Infused 7 kit, they pair perfectly together.  This kit contains oils specifically focused on helping you find balance in the 7 key areas of life: Fitness, Finance, Family, Field, Faith, Friends, and Fun.  For more info on Oola and targeting what areas you may need to work on first, head over to to take a free life balance test.

January flew by way too fast for me, as I was recovering from the craziness of the Holidays, a trip to see my parents to help my dad after surgery and having family visiting from out of town in January. So for February I will be giving away two prizes!!! Whoo hoo!!!  Which prize will you win?  A nice diamond topped pen with journal or a bottle of one of my favorite oils- Abundance.  All you have to do to qualify for our monthly giveaway is enroll in Essential Rewards, if you are not on ER already and order at least a 100PV order and that's it!!! Not only will you be saving more on your orders by receiving points back but you'll also be qualifying for YL's monthly freebies too, that's a win win all around! Not sure how to get started with ER? I can help you with that as well! Looking forward to seeing which two of you win these prizes this month!!!

Explore the emotional and skin-benefiting properties of these three oils when diffused or applied topically! 
I know you have Frank and Lavender from your PSK but have you tried JASMINE!?  Did you know the flower must be picked at night before sunrise to maximize the fragrance of Jasmine oil? This adds to the oil’s mystique and allure. Additionally, this precious oil requires more than 10 pounds of flowers to make one 5-ml bottle!  It promotes inspirational relationships which are perfect for the month of Feb! Get it in your Essential Rewards cart STAT. 
AROMATIC USE: When diffused, these three oils provide a grounded sense of love and peace.
Add 2 drops of each to your diffuser and enjoy! 
TOPICAL USE: Mix a drop of Frankincense, Lavender, and Jasmine with a coin size amount of carrier oil in your palm. Apply to face and neck daily for a youthful glow to your skin. 

Featured Oil of the Month: Humility

We all strive for a happy vibrant life of success. When you have more abundance in your life you have more success, but you can't have more abundance without humility first.
The key to bringing more abundance to your life is maintaining your humble nature. You can achieve this by using Humility.
Humility is a blend of Coriander, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Geranium, Melissa, Frankincense, Myrrh, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Vetiver, Bitter Orange, and Rose. 
PRO TIP: According to the late D. Gary Young, you can't have abundance without humility. Use Humility blend along with Abundance to maximize your true potential. 
  • Add 4-6 drops of Humility essential oil to your diffuser or a drop onto your diffuser necklace and bracelet to feel grounded and humble.
  • The oils in this blend are also beneficial to your skin and general well-being! Apply a drop or two topically to desired area.
