Welcome to my Oily Gurus page! My name is Kelsey Outler. I am a twenty-something bivocational Children’s Pastor living in Portland, IN. In 2015, I began using Young Living essential oils. At first, I was skeptical but over a period of months I came to recognize the support my overall health has received from using these oils (You can read about my journey from skeptic to oily user in the blog below). I have seen the support my friends and family have received from using these oils as well. The more I learn about and use these oils, the more I have become convinced that God’s creation is amazing! Yes, as a Christian (and as a pastor), I believe God created the plants from which the essential oils come and He has given us the knowledge to effectively use them to support our health–our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.
I would love to share my love of oils with you!

My Young Living oily journey began over a period of months through a family friend who shared a bottle of Orange essential oils with my Mom for Christmas 2014. When Mom decided to purchase a Premium Starter Kit a couple months later, I wasn’t sure what she was getting involved in. The one fact that gave some credence to essential oils for me was the respect I have for the family friend who introduced Mom to Young Living essential oils. At the time, I had no idea the journey our family was about to embark on. Over time, we began to gradually try the oils and found they really do support our bodies.
After occasionally using the oils, Mom and I had the opportunity in May 2015 to have ZYTO scans, which help each person find the oils and products that will best provide the support his or her body needs. I was still becoming convinced that essential oils would support my overall health and was definitely a little skeptical about the scan until I read about the oils my scan suggested. I was amazed at what the scan picked up about my physical and emotional health. In the weeks after my first scan, I began using the oils on a more regular basis.
Over the summer of 2015, I became fully convinced that Young Living essential oils really do support our bodies. I ended up going to the doctor twice within a period of a few weeks due to some respiratory problems. With the help of a few prescribed medications, my respiratory health was soon restored. During that time, I also supported my body with a few essential oils and fell in love with their scent as well as the support they provided.
Since the fall of 2015, I began using oils daily to support various aspects of my overall health, including my physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health. As I learn more about essential oils, I realize the amazing resources that God has given us through His wonderful creation. As a Christian (and as a pastor), I firmly believe God has provided these essential oils to support our health and wellbeing and given us the knowledge of how to effectively use them!
