Hi, Sheila Burt here and welcome to my website. My journey is a long one. But I won't bore you with the then and now over the last 60 plus years of my life. I hit the highlights.
So to give you a little background, I knew there was something about my life that I couldn't figure out. Not missing but not exactly there either. I remember as a child, growing up on a farm and how much I loved being barefoot in the grass, or sometimes in the freshly turned soil in the garden. I loved horses and riding. Oh how I miss that. My life growing up had many twists and turns, peaks and valleys that have all lead me to where I am today. I'm sure many of you can relate.
So fast forward to 2013, I was a successful Pampered Chef consultant at a vendor event. I should share that I would get headaches/migraines when around "Fragrances". I talk about that a little later. I look across the room and I see this "I dream of genie" bottle. Let me tell you, I waited couple of hours and there wasn't any genie but I did get a headache. I'm sure I don't have to tell you what I thought. So unlike me, I walked over and basically told the nice lady (Andrea) that her "I dream of genie bottle was giving me a headache". Immediately I thought. Did I just say that out loud sure did, Andrea as very pleasant and said that it shouldn't be, that it's essential oils and gave me a drop of peppermint and instructed me what to do. Well, like magic that headache went away. True story. Andrea was very sweet and checked on me a little later, she handed me some information and asked if she could call me. I said sure (but I didn't mean it).
Andrea contacted me a few days later and I told her I would talk to my sister and see if she would be willing to have her come chat about the oils. ha ha...let's make my sister be the guinea pig, right. Fast forward a little more (and I'm leaving out a lot of this so you don't have to read forever). Andrea came out, in a crazy snow storm and shared all she could about the oils. She brought 4 kits with her. There were five of us there, and well I'm sure I don't have to tell you who didn't get one. Yup me. I said, "oh, let the others have them, I don't like fragrances. I remember Andrea telling us if we didn't like one that it meant we needed it. And I was really thinking that there was no way I was bring those into my house.
A few weeks later, my sisters were telling me how much better they felt and my nephew who has a TBI (brain injury) was reacting to them too. And then it happened. Andrea called and said "Sheila, are you ready to get a kit yet?" I tried to once again said no. And she added, "I'll tell you what, if you get a kit and find in a couple weeks that you don't like at least one of the oils, I'll buy it back from you." I'm thinking, this is a win win for me. I can't lose, I'l put it on my credit card and my bill won't come due for 30 days. I'll get my money back and we'll be done. Yup, I've got this.
Well, that was 6 years ago. Today I'm an aspiring Oiler. I love the products and guess what. I am not getting headaches. Do you know why? Let me explain, my headaches were caused by the synthetics in the FRAGRANCES. Essential oils are not a fragrance. But be careful, know what you're buying. Oils from others may have a synthetic added. With Young Living you get 100% pure Seed to Seal Guaranteed Essential Oil. Now there is more but jump on over to...
