I am an Oily Mama! I am a Cancer Survivor! I have two of the most loving children who happen to be a little over active (just like me!). My husband and I have been married 17 years and we have been together 24 years. I am blessed to still have my mom living and near me.
My journey in oils began in May 2017 when I attended my first 101 class. At the time, I was going through a very difficult situation and was interested in learning more about oils but my life was in turmoil. Fast forward to August and an abnormal test result that led to a lumpectomy and a subsequent visit to an Oncologist who suggested that with my family history and high risk that I should go on medication to reduce my chances of contracting the "C" word in the future and I knew I had to find a way to kick toxins to the curb. I knew environmental toxins were most likely to blame for my battle with Kidney Cancer in 2015, which left me with 5 beautiful scars and missing about a quarter of my left kidney, it was time for a change. My friend, Barbara, invited me to my second 101 class and I was excited to learn about the true powers of Essential Oils. I was excited to find out out that Frankincense has been found to fight the dreaded "C " word. I purchased my kit in November and like a blessing from God it arrived just in time to help with its calming oils when my husband went into the hospital with heart issues right before Christmas. The oils in the starter kit helped me stay calm during during this crisis.
My family uses YL oils everyday. My mom rolls everyday to help control the signs of aging that has settled in her joints and knees. She diffuses oils in her home all day long. My kids, a teenager and a six year old, roll every morning and night. My teenager uses oils to control breakouts and to manage his hormone levels. My husband uses oils to control cravings and to manage back and knee issues. I use oils to control sugar cravings, weight management, emotional balance and wellness. We are starting the process of ridding our house of toxins and have made the switch to Thieves Cleaner. We use it in our laundry, dishwasher, sink, and to clean.
I hope my story will inspire you to learn more about what Essential Oils can do for you and your family.
