Hello, my name is Erin. I am a wife, a mother to 3 boys, and a teacher. I became oily almost 2 years ago. Honestly I just tried the oils because of my friends. I know peer pressure. LOL! Then I fell in love with them because they woked for me. Now I am not one of those crazy oily people. No ,my life does not revolve around oils. I do not use them every day, but there are Young Living products that I do use every day. I love their Satin Facial Scrub Mint!It has been my face wash for the last year. It has just the right amount of texture to exfoliate my skin. My face has cleared up since I began using it. I do not break out any more like I used to. I also use their Theives toothpaste. It does not have any added chemicals in it, and it's fluoride free. I am not a fan of fluoride. I do no believe it is healthy.
My kids use the oils and toothpaste. My sons are 15,12, and 9. My 15 year old plays football, basketball, and runs track. He uses a lot of Panaway! I have even used oils to help fade out their scars. We all use them for allergies. My boys and my kids at shool get at least a weekly dose of Theives just to boost their immunity and mine. The Theives has gotten my classes for the last 2 years through flu season without any of us getting the flu!
My husband has even started using the oils. He always asks if I have an oil for him. Or if I am using some, he wants to know where his is. LOL! He went from being a skeptic to a believer.
I have offered oils to a lot of different people. Most of them thought, "yeah right this is never going to work." Ninety percent of those people told me the oils really did help them! I am not an expert at using them. I learn more all the time. I love to learn more ways to use a natural remedy on my family. I used to worry about our bodies becoming resistent to antibiotics, or is this drug going to have a bad side effect on one of us. I do not really worry about these things any more because we do not use a lot of perscription medicine any more.
This is just part of my oily story. If you are interested in learning more, please contact me. I will help you any way that I can!
