Hi there! My name is Jen, and here is my story. I am married to a wonderful man and he is my best friend (We recently celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary!) Through thick and thin, we have survived it all. We have two children : a 17-year-old daughter, and a 14-year-old son. We have been very blessed.
A few years ago, I had a brush with skin cancer. It wasn’t life threatening. It was however, very painful, unpleasant, and something I would not wish on my worst enemy. The removal of this cancer has had lasting repercussions, and is something I still deal with today.
But, there was one good thing to come out of this ordeal - I finally realized how precious our skin actually is. I learned that the skin is our largest organ. Did you know that?? Before, I totally took it for granted. I never stopped to think about what we put on our bodies on a daily basis.
So I began walking down a new path. I chose to live as free of toxins as possible. In today’s modern society, it’s not as hard to accomplish as you might think. I started off with simple things, like replacing chemical laden beauty and personal products with ones I either made myself, or purchased from companies that I felt were reputable. I also started making my own cleaning products for use around the house.
Then, I realized that not only did I need to work on my external self, I should also be focusing on my internal self as well. I started using essential oils to support different needs, rather that reaching for the nearest medicine cabinet. I also realized that the foods that we were eating would need to change, and I have slowly been changing ingredients and recipes as well.
One of the greatest feelings, is knowing that I am doing everything to ensure the best health and wellness for myself and my family. I am worth it, they are worth it, and so are you.
So, this is my story, my journey, and I hope you will join me.
Thank you for reading…
