First of all, I'm a Christian woman, wife and mother of one. I work full-time as a Registered Nurse. I was looking for a more natural approach to health and wellness. As a nurse, I've seen so many people go down treacherous roads to maintaining or achieving a healthy lifestyle. I have my own struggles including weight and how to manage my own internal struggles on a daily basis to make better choices and believe me, I've tried many different things to try to improve not only my weight, but my general health. First off, my biggest concern was getting the chemicals out of my home to protect not only my family, but also my beloved pets. See, God has only blessed me with one healthy child, so I've chosen to adopt animals to help balance my life. I have 4 cats all rescued and two Labrador retrievers, one of which is a rescue. My rescued lab is afraid of being left alone and is afraid of storms, (thunder/lightning), fireworks and presumably gunshots since he doesn't do well with any loud noise really.
I was the biggest skeptic in the beginning. I mean, as someone who had been medically trained, looking outside the box was foreign to me. My friend introduced me to oils, and it took me about 6 months before I decided to check them out. Let me tell you, I wish I'd listened sooner! While I will mention that I am not here to treat, diagnose or make any medical claims, I can tell you what has helped my family with some everyday concerns and show you where to learn more about essential oils and how they can support you and your family. As with anything that you have concerns about, do your research and ask your medical provider to do some research if you do chose to utilize essential oils into your regimen. Please check out the references included in this page and the Young Living Blog. I chose Young Living because they are the ONLY essential oil company that not only plants their own seeds, they cultivate, fertilize their plants with no chemicals (they use their own oils), and they harvest at the best possible time after many years of research, distill, bottle and distribute their oils without any middle man. It's all done with love and care, that was important to me. Check out their Seed to Seal practices and see why they're the world leader in essential oils.
