Hello and welcome.
I've been in the holistic and well being industry for over 30 years. I qualified as a Clinical Aromatherapist in 1991 with Eve Taylor Aromatherapy in London, and have been practicing and teaching Aromatherapy ever since. My Young Living Essential Oils journey began in 2012 when I was introduced to the Young Living blend of Joy. A friend was wearing it and I asked her about it, and we chatted all things Young Living for the next couple of hours and, as the saying goes, the rest is history!
It was also in 2012 that I learned about the writings and teachings of Dr. David Stewart on Emotional Release with Essential Oils and the The Healing Oils of the Bible, which resulted in me traveling to America on many occasions to train with Dr. Stewart at CARE (The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education) to become a CARE Instructor, and I am now the only CARE Instructor teaching in Europe.
In 2010 I started becoming aware of the number of chemicals we use in our homes. I found out that the average person applies about 300 chemicals to their body every day, and 80 of these before breakfast. The biggest culprits are from four sources – soap, makeup, shampoo, and hair care. Other sources are fabric softener, dryer sheets, air freshener plug-ins, candles and kitchen counter cleaners whilst the chemicals from processed food is a whole other story. Health and safety data only exists for 15 percent of all the chemicals out there, even though so many are known to cause asthma or endocrine disruptions.
Young Living essential oils are totally chemical free, steam distilled or cold pressed from pure plants. There is nothing in them but the oil itself, whether it be lemon, orange, lavender, peppermint, or the numerous others. There are so many uses for essential oils – personal care products like toothpaste and deodorant, home cleaning products, diffused in a cold diffuser to purify the air inside your home, oil-infused nutritional supplements, and more. Young Living's essential oils, wellness and household products are not only invigorating but effective too.
January 2016 saw me committed to transitioning the products in my home to toxin free, organic, and non-GMO whenever possible, and over the following 18 months I wrote my on line course
'Take Control of Your Health - with Toxic Awareness'
which walks you through 12 weeks of bi-weekly modules for detoxing your whole home.
You decide how quickly you want to make changes - there is no pressure!
