I am a wellness coach and have been in the fitness/health industry since the 1980's.
I have had numerous health issues for years so I have learned a lot just from trying different doctors, and therapies. My son asked what I wanted for Mother's day, so I had been looking at oil companies and kept seeing people post about Young Living oils. I started reading about them, their seed to seal promise, their purity, and then saw all the amazing blends and oils they had. I told my son about Young Living, and He sent me Clarity oil and Valerian. He thought I could use the help with clarity of thoughts..haha. I noticed within days that some of the 'brain fog' issues I'd been having were clearing up. I was able to focus enough to organize paperwork in my office. I was impressed.
Valerian I used to support calming and mood. I put it on my big toes at night for help with sleep issues. It also helped. I decided to explore more oils from Young Living so I got the Premium kit, since it seemed like a great way to get both a diffuser and 11 oils. I have to admit I was overwhelmed at first. I mean, I was used to what I thought were good essential oils that I already used in my coaching business. But these were so much better! I started using some with my clients, and one after another I started noticing them be able to open up more emotionally. I was sold.
I then started exploring the oils for help with some of the effects I have had with post menopausal issues, especially related to hormones and Hashimoto thyroid issues. I was excited to see I could use oils in my diffuser, or diluted with coconut oil on my skin. I got some of the Thieves products for cleaning and immune support. I ordered some of the oil infused supplements and had great results with many of them.
I have eight grandchildren, so I slowly started reading about the safe way to use oils with children, and I diluted the oils and made up mixtures to try on them. They LOVE the oils and call me their 'oily Mimi' :-) I carry the oils in my purse and use them off and on through the day, and share them with others when they have headaches or allergy issues. They really are part of my life now and I love teaching others how to use them, and the science behind the oils, which I find fascinating!
So that's how I got started in 2013 and I've never looked back. I can tell a huge difference in other oils and don't even use the ones I used to carry, because I really never saw the results that I see now with the Young Living oils. My husband has become a 'user' too and loves them for things like bug bites, calming, and when we drive, he loves the Clarity to help him with the brain fatigue. So we always use them on trips now :-)
I also have an AromaDome (TM) and it's a little 'tent' that I put people in, with a professional diffuser. They just lay down in it and the oil molecules fall on them while they relax. I love praying over people while they are in there and just playing soft music or scripture verses. Most have told me that they had significant breakthroughs emotionally or spiritually while in there, or just a sense of calm. Many have also loved it if they have respiratory issues, since it helps support healthy breathing.
I have a passion to share about the healing benefits of the oils that God gave us, and love answering questions to help those who have gotten oils from me.
I hope this gives you a brief view of why I do what I do with the oils:-)
