Welcome to my life changing journey of essential oils and natural health care.
It was in 2009 I decided to take a plunge and go to school for Therapeutic Massage and Integrated Health Care. This was the turning point in my life in so many ways. I acquired more knowledge and skills that I never even knew existed about the body and natural health care within this two year program. This is where I was introduced to essential oils.
One of my good buddies in class always came in smelling amazing! We all gravitated to her and were wondering what she was using. The aroma stimulated us all in such a positive way. It was at that point she pulled out her Young Living Essential Oils. Once we tried the oils we were hooked. I swear, it was Clarity and Brain Power blends that got us through our program! I was amazed how these oils made me feel. It wasn't long after that I decided to become apart of the Young Living family and get my own membership.
In the program of Therapeutic Massage and Integrated Health Care we learned a lot about the body, to every bone, muscle and every other system. We not only learned how to therapeutically massage a person, but learned how the body functions. In this program we learned about other integrated health care practices, such as Macrobiotic Diets and Nutrition, Chiropractic Care, Traditional Chinese Medicine such as Shiatsu Massage and Acupuncture, Biofield Therapies, and Aromatherapy.
I loved most about this program is learning that "our bodies are NOT broken, diseased, or doomed". Our bodies merely get IMBALANCED.
Whewww!! Now that is a weight off my chest! "Soo all this time I just needed to see where I was out of balance and counter act it? Wow!!"
Being an athlete my whole life and dealing with certain health complications getting a new perspective on health care was seriously a life saver. I was able to bring my body back into balance. All I needed to do was understand how to SUPPORT my body's natural systems to ENHANCE my health and well-being (Got It!). It gave me hope to heal, and it did! So through my massage journey opened a whole new world to me that I can honestly say today I have brought my body back to balance; naturally.
Although, to understand this we have to understand 1 thing first; Our bodies have a natural ability to heal itself (It is just what that body does; The body has your best interest at self and wants to keep you functioning; Which is pretty amazing!) Our bodies are self functioning; But it is a machine that needs to be taken care of and properly nourished. When done so, the body will function at an optimal level. When our bodies are not taken care of they become IMBALANCED and stop functioning properly. Plain and Simple.
It is through our daily choices to live a healthy lifestyle of eating clean, choosing chemical free products and using alternative practices to keep us functioning at optimal levels.
Your bodies are meant to thrive, & They Can. It is true. <3
Now, Essential Oils are such a special category to this aspect and a great tool to add to any healthy lifestyle.
So what are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are plants~ They are the oil that is extracted from the plant- This oil acts as the plants blood system that carries all of its nutrients. The oil of the plant works as the plants own immune system. As a plant can not call up a doctor when it gets sick or an intruder invades, nature has designed plants to be able to protect itself with its own essential oil. (Again, so Fascinating!)
It is through using EO Aromatically, Topically, or Internally that we can help support our bodies natural systems. Although, there was just something different about the Young Living Essential oils from other oils that I have tried on the market. They were stronger, more pure, and seemed to work faster. Not all oils are created the same, nor are safe to take internally or put on our skin.
Then I did my research and discovered why that was.
YL oils have a "SEED to SEAL" promise on every bottle.
Check out Seed to Seal
to see what that means and how our oils have a stringent process from the fields where the plants are grown to the bottles to give us the most pure and potent oils sold on the market today.
I never realized the true power of plants until I was able to use them on myself and marinate my clients everyday with Young Living Essential Oils.
It is the Young Living passion and integrity that draws me closer to this company everyday. There is no doubt that is why we stand as the pioneers and world leaders in the essential oil companies; For this I am ever so grateful for the founder D. Gary Young for his passion and persistence to create products for purpose and not profit. At the end of the day I know that the oil I'm using on myself and my clients is safe and that I can trust to create therapeutic results.
These little powerful packed plant nutrients bottles have changed my life for the better and I will never go a day without them again.
