Let's Chat About Essential Oils

You're curious about essential oils. Awesome! You're in the right spot. I'm glad you're here! 

Over the last decade, I've read a lot of your emails & comments. A lot of you are here because you are looking for answers, options, new solutions, & hope from someone who's been there & overcame it. I wanna share my journey & give you some of my hope.  


How I Got Started

Ryan & I got married in 2007. Two months later my back went out. Happy honeymoon to us! I was 27 years old and couldn't get out of bed one morning. For the next 3 years, I did all the physical therapy, injections, epidurals, surgeries, pain management, bed rest....everything.  Nothing helped. With every intervention, I was weaker and in more pain.
After 3 years, I had fusion surgery and got hardware in my spine. During my 3 months of bedrest, my surgeon was mentally preparing me for my future healthcare plans. He said I would need pain management, physical therapy, and a surgeon handy for the rest of my life. And I definitely shouldn't ever get pregnant & add that strain to my back. I was 30 year old and felt defeated & hopeless.
I realized what I was doing wasn't working. I started researching looking for options. I joined chat rooms (that's what we did in 2010 ;-) ) to learn what worked for others, asked lots of questions, downloaded medical journals, and read lots of research. I was on bedrest so I had the time and motivation to learn. And boy did I learn!

Detoxing & Essential Oils

In my research, I learned that chemicals & toxic ingredients in food, personal care, & cleaning products can cause inflammation and inflammation can cause injury. My spine injury was a non-impact injury, meaning I wasn't in a wreck, I didn't fall, & I wasn't playing sports. I just woke up one day and couldn't stand up. My injury was a result of excess inflammation hidden in my body. 

So I started ditching all the chemicals in my house.

I started with my cleaning products. Yall. I LOVED cleaning wipes! I bought them in bulk and used them for everything. Getting rid of those hurt my soul! And dryer sheets! Say it ain't so!! I gave those up, too. I started making all my cleaning supplies with vinegar and baking soda. My house smelled like a jar of pickles. But guess what.....

My pain started to go away! I wanted more!

Next came my beauty products. Yep, I ditched the shampoo & makeup from the drugstore. It's full of ingredients that is linked to inflammation, cancer, autoimmune, infertility, allergies, and more. 

And I started getting stronger! And sleeping better! And even less pain! 

Then I found essential oils.

I bought the famous starter bundle. I was excited to find this bargainThat's under $14 per bottle of oil with a bonus diffuser! I added essential oils to all my homemade products. My house no longer smelled like pickles! ;-)  And it gets better -- now I use Thieves Household Cleaner and it's the best cleaner I've ever used.

My bundle came in and then: 

And I became an instant believer. These oils These oils worked! For everything! 

That was close to a decade ago. I haven't been back to a spine surgeon, physical therapist, or pain specialist since. I had a beautiful pregnancy with my now 7 year old daughter (I also have a 10 year old adopted son). 

I'm so thankful for these healthy products and oils for me and my family. I know my healing journey wouldn't have been the same without Young Living. I'm your starter bundle here honored to be your essential oil buddy and guide. Grab your starter bundle here and then I'll send you some resources to get you started!

One month & one order at a time, I've upgraded all the products in my house to Young Living. YL rewards me by sending me gifts with my purchase every month and adding points to my account with every order. Here are some things that I can't imagine not having in my house now. They make such a difference in my health. And yall, the YL skincare is the bomb dot com! Add some to your next LR order or save up your points and get some for free! 

  • Thieves Household Cleaner: This bottle of concentrate makes about 20 full size bottles of cleaner. Grab a few empty spray bottles from the dollar store. It's the only cleaner in my house. It cleans every surface. 
  • Thieves Toothpaste: The best toothpaste ever! My dentist loves it. My family uses KidScents, Aromabright, & Whitening.
  • Thieves Laundry Detergent: This is the only natural detergent that my husband hasn't vetoed! It works and it's highly concentrated. I dilute mine. When you get yours, pour half of the detergent in a couple mason jars. Fill the detergent bottle with water and shake to mix. Voila! You have double the detergent!
