Jeff and I are teachers in the Chicagoland area. He teaches Kindergarten and I teach 6th-8th grade Social Studies and English Literature. We met back in 2007 and fell in love right away! The rest was pretty much history. We have been married since 2010. We have an adorable border collie mix named Sophie who is 4 years old. We live close to our family and friends and cherish spending time with them.
A very big part of our life is spent helping people grow and achieve wellness. We fell in love with Young Living Essential Oils in June 2014 and have been using them ever since. They have blessed so many different people and continue to help us and our families. We use our oils every day and LOVE everything about them.
We started looking into Young Living when I started researching the everyday cleaning, over the counter and medicinal products we were using regularly. I was shocked with all of the chemicals that we were putting into our body. We started a clean eating regimen and that led us to Young Living. In addition, both of us had sinus surgery in the past and were still not feeling any better. We knew we needed a change. In addition, our Border Collie, Sophie is a rescue pup from the tornadoes that ravaged the plains states back in 2012. We adopted her and quickly learned that she struggled with storms and loud noises. We wanted to help her overcome these things and get her on the road to happiness.
Well... Guess what! When our kit came on July 1st, the first thing we applied to our sweet Sophie girl was Peace and Calming. We applied one drop to her pretty red bandana around her neck and within a few moments, she was wagging her tail and smiling in her own doggie way. She licked Jeff all over his face and stopped shaking. Jeff was holding her and said he also felt a calm come over him too. That was the first moment that we realized that these oils work!!!! We were so thrilled!
I began using Young Living for my seasonal woes and was able to stop using other products because of the relief I felt. Lemon, Peppermint and Lavender (all in the Premium Starter Kit) became my new besties! I applied one drop of each to the back of my neck, behind my ears and on my temples in the morning and at night. I stopped all other products and am just using my oils now. It is AWESOME! How awesome is it that all of these Starter Kit oils have helped us in so many different ways. Panaway and Peppermint rocked Jeff's world as he trained for his first and second marathon. He was able to keep training daily and manage the demands of the training that was totally new to him. In addition to his daily regimen, he also took weekly Essential Oil detox baths. These made such a difference!!!
My purse is always filled with all 11 of the Essential Oils from the Premium Starter Kit because Jeff and I use them most frequently. A few of our other favorites include Highest Potential, Live Your Passion, Eucalyptus Globulous, Grounding and Deep Relief.
So, that's us in a nutshell! We love our oils, love helping people and are having such a great time doing life with all our oiler friends!!!
