Hey! Let's Chat! I'll tell you a little about me and why I got started with Young Living Essential Oils.
My name is Leigh Copen and I was born and raised in Braxton County West Virginia. I still live and I am raising my family in the same quiet community were I grew up. I am the proud wife, of 15 years, to my wonderful husband, Phillip. I am the stay at home mother to two beautifully ornery kids. Luke is 9 and Lilly is 7. And, boy, do they keep me busy. I am also a step mother to a beautiful 18 year old young lady, Cheyenne. The picture shown above is my wonderful family, our 2 crazy dogs Bo and Bella, and not shown is our little kitty (my first grand animal) Joy. They are my loves and my life!
My husband, being the great guy he is, bought me my first Premium Starter Kit for Christmas, and boy was I surprised. But first a little look back as to why this was one of the best gifts he's given me. My family and I were at my sister’s house trying to have a nice visit, but I felt so bad with a sinus headache and my allergies acting up that I asked her if she had any medicine that would help. She gets up and starts to make this little roller bottle of something. I say something because I had never heard of using oils before and I didn't even know she used them. She asked me to try them and see if they would help. I know now that what she gave me was the Allergy Trio (Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint oils mixed with a carrier oil). Feeling as bad as I did I would have tried anything. "Did it work?" you ask. Oh My Gosh! Did it ever! My sinuses drained for about 3 minutes straight (sorry if TMI). Then the clouds parted, the sun came out, and the heavenly angels started to sing. Haha! Ok, not really, but after feeling like crap all the time with sinus and allergy problems, I felt AMAZING! So I kept her little roller bottle and I used it along with my OTC medication for about a week. After the first week I STOPPED taking any OTC allergy medication. Yes, STOPPED! You have to understand this was HUGE! I had been on allergy meds for 8 years. Always changing to a different brand because after 3 months they would stop working. The Young Living Essential Oils worked! So, naturally, I wanted my own Premium Starter Kit. But Christmas was coming soon and my husband gets laid off from work in the winter months. We needed to save for the kids gifts and bills. My Kit would have to wait until the new year, or so I thought...this is when my amazing husband gifted me with it for Christmas!
By this time I was 100% sure these oils were helping me with my allergies. So much that I was able to start my then 8 year old on them with me. And do you know after 3 months we didn't have to use even the Trio any more than maybe once a week. Crazy, I know, but true. Now a little over a year later we only have to use the trio when needed, like after I mow, work in my flower garden, or if we spend a long day at a double header baseball game. I know this was a long-winded story about how I started using YL oils but I think it's important to share with others how well and how quickly they worked and are still working for us.
I not only use these oils but my whole family does now as well. We have used them for anything from sleep (every night), anxiety, depression, cough, colds, sore throats, fever, wrinkles, boo-boo creams, lotions, and we even use them on our animals. Oh, and did I mention that a lot of these oils you can ingest! I love to use them to cook with. The best thing is with the diffuser you get when you purchase a Premium Starter Kit, the whole family and any visitors get the benefits from your great oils. They are so easy to use that my kids apply or diffuse independently.
So this is me and my starter story. My oil journey is just beginning. I not only use them daily but this is now my business. My job! My extended family! And I want to share my love of oils with you. So use my contact information, get a hold of me, and let’s OILY CHAT!
