Hi! My name is Lindsay Amerman and I am a twenty four year-old health coach, runner, nature-lover, and essential oil addict 😊
I was first introduced to Young Living Essential Oils in mid-2017 by two of my good friends I work with. They both were always talking using essential oils and I had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. They used them for ENDLESS reasons-every time I mentioned some sort of problem, their first response would always be "you need oils". I was kind of skeptical about them so didn't think too much of them until one of my friends one day was talking about how she uses them for emotional purposes (depression, anxiety, etc) and that is what got hold of my attention...
In 2012, I was away at college and began experiencing terrible anxiety and unbearable headaches to the point where it was hard for me to do everyday tasks. I felt as if I had this huge cloud hovering over my head constantly and it was this inexplainable feeling that I still can't fully put into words. I knew something wasn't right but I was getting bounced around to different doctors, getting prescribed different anxiety/depression medications and nothing was working. I was eventually sent to a neurologist who did an MRI and found a lesion on my brain. This lesion was blocking fluid from flowing properly in my brain, which was causing all of these anxiety symptoms, brain fog, numbness in my arms, and headaches. I ended up undergoing brain surgery in the Fall of 2012 and it was the most scary time of my life. Ever since then, I have had such a different perspective on life. I am so grateful and blessed to be here and I now try and take today as if it were my last. I try to question so many more things in life and rather than turn to medication for an answer for everything, finding the root cause is so important.
I have struggled with anxiety ever since 2012 but hearing my friend talking about how she found comfort in using oils, I decided it was time for me to give them a try. I kid you not when I say that from the day my Premium Starter Kit arrived on my doorstep and I put that first oil in the diffuser, I became OBSESSED. I have found such comfort in using these oils and have really began pondering all of the toxic chemicals we are using in our homes every single day. It's scary! I not only use oils for emotional reasons but I use them when I run, after I run to soothe my muscles, I use shampoo with oils, I use them to clean our apartment (every room!), to clean dishes,...I can go on and on talking about them and how they can be used. They truly are a God-given gift.
I want to help as many people as I can while I'm on this earth and I knew instantly when I started using these oils, I shouldn't hold back from sharing them with as many people I can. I am excited for what the future holds and I have BIG plans for helping others discover how to live a life full of purpose, wellness and abundance!
