In March, 2014, I begrudgingly attended an Intro to Essential Oils class with my mother that a friend of mine was teaching. I had no idea that on that evening, everything I thought I knew would fly out the window and my life would be changed for the better. Before the class I JUST KNEW that I wanted no part of whatever these oils were. I hadn't ever heard of essential oils before and was not interested. I JUST KNEW that essential oils were a whole lot of nothing...voodoo...snake oils etc... Believe me, I've heard it all. Having been a nurse for 33 years, I JUST KNEW that these essential oils were not for me.
I'm here to tell you that I was soooo wrong! You see, my mom had some essential oils rubbed on her 78 year old hands that evening. I got to see some wonderful changes in her hands that night, and wouldn't we all do anything we could to help our mothers? So, we both purchased our starter kits and began READING! There was so much to learn it seemed. I remember being so intrigued by the mystery of essential oils, trying to learn the chemistry of how they work. Well, its been over 2 years now and I'm still intrigued and still learning.
I don't even pretend to know everything about how essential oils work, although I know way more now than I did 2 years ago. I won't bore you with all the chemistry behind essential oils. You can read about it on your own. But this is an easy way to understand the basics until then. Essential oils come from plants. The same oil inside the plant that keeps the plant healthy can help us support and maintain a healthy lifestyle. OK, here is the really important part...are you ready?
GOD created the plants that has all the yummy, healthy for us, oil inside! He created the plants BEFORE He created us because He knew what we would need to keep us healthy. He placed the first man and woman in a garden, surrounded by beautiful plants and trees. Wow, that's so easy right?! While I learn the science behind how essential oils work and how to use them effectively, I remember that God loves ALL of HIS creations and everything works together for good and for His glory. It's really that simple. I'm so very thankful for His never-ending love and mercy. He is the one true Healer of all things.
There are many reasons why I chose Young Living as my essential oil company. The main reason is the Seed to Seal process. You can read all about this right here on my website. Because of Seed to Seal, I know that these oils are the safest oils on the planet. Young Living is the ONLY company to have this process. I have been privileged to see this process in action at the Mona Farm in Utah and its the real deal! By the way, all the YL farms are open to the public also. No secrets here! Secondly, when you become a member of "team Young Living," you have instant "oily family" and an endless supply of support, education and resources.
Fast forward 2 years and I, along with members of our team, are sharing the goodness of Young Living Essential Oils and Young Living Products. When you find a product and a company that you believe in, its impossible to not share with others. We get to teach, help and watch as others learn about living a healthier, toxin free lifestyle. It is simply one of the best things to watch others "lightbulb" go on as they realize how easy it is to make small changes in their lives and the lives of their families that will reward them with positive outcomes. It really is the best job ever...but that's another story you can ask me about. It's super easy too!!
On a more personal note, I wear many hats as we all do. I'm a wife (we just celebrated 35 years), mother of 2 grown children (with awesome spouses) and have 3 grandchildren who are the absolute light of our lives. I work in the operating room at our community hospital and share essential oils any chance I get. I am passionate about my love for Jesus and I love to teach others about essential oils. So if you have questions or just want to talk...call me, text me, email me or private message me on fb. I also like to travel and use teaching oil classes as an excuse to do that. :) I would truly love to help you in your journey.
