I’ve always believed that the Lord gave us such a wide array of plants and herbs because He intended us to use them to support healthy bodies. Through Young Living essential oils, I’m learning every day how to use His creation to support a healthy immune system, to clean our home without the use of harmful chemicals, to support healthy skin, and the list goes on and on.
When you join Young Living Essential Oils through me, I will help point you in the right direction and try to answer your questions as you learn how your oils can make a difference in your life. You’ll have access to a community of oilers through Facebook who love asking and answering questions, helping each other, and supporting each member as we learn together.
Life is a journey … and my journey includes essential oils!

Starting my day drinking ice cold water with a drop of Lime Essential Oil has been a game changer for me! I used to be addicted to diet coke – I could easily drink it all day every day. Diet soda still sounds good on occasion but I find I’m craving water with citrus oils in it. And the added bonus – Lime essential oil can support a healthy respiratory system and since Spring allergies are my nemesis this year, its exactly what I need!
I’m always eager to learn new ways to use an oil to support healthy bodies. So when my little brother asked if there was anything I could recommend he try for his psoriasis, I did some research. First, a little background. My brother is in his early 40’s and has struggled with head-to-toe psoriasis for about 20 years. A few years ago, it was so bad (the incredible burning and itching were maddening) that he reached the point that he asked the Lord to take him home rather than make him suffer so much. Thankfully, the Lord said “no”. So for about 20 years my brother has used one prescription medication after another with limited or no improvement. He was desperate. So I researched essential oils and recommended that he discuss them with his doctor to make sure there wouldn’t be any negative interactions. His doctor basically said “eh, go ahead, but it won’t do any good”. So in addition to cutting back on his sugar intake and using his prescription psoriasis medication, my brother began applying a few drops of Lavender essential oil followed by Copaiba on a small spot on his chest. The next morning, he thought it looked a little better so he applied it on a larger spot. After about a week, he was applying a little of the oily combo on every psoriasis spot and after about 3 weeks HE IS COMPLETELY CLEAR! The oils were able to support his body as his skin healed and he has no itching, no redness, no burning. What a relief! His doctor was astonished and told him to keep doing whatever he’s doing. I love how essential oils help our bodies to do what the Lord designed them to do.
Hypothyroidism – I’d never heard of it until I was given that diagnosis about 10 years ago and, upon researching it, I discovered that I’d likely had this problem since I was about 12 years old. Oh how different my life may have been if only I’d known then. When I was diagnosed, I was constantly exhausted, my hair was falling out, my skin was so dry that it hurt and did I mention I was exhausted? I began taking a prescription medication and I did feel better, but then the symptoms came back and my dose was increased. Then it was increased again, and again, and again. Every year my dose went up. So I researched it and discovered that the medication they prescribe it meant to treat the symptoms but not the thyroid itself! So, I decided to take control of my thyroid health and researched essential oils. With my doctor’s approval, I began using Endoflex essential oil on my thyroid every morning (just a drop or two on my throat/neck). After a month of using it, I developed a rash on my neck (near the area I applied the oil but not exactly on that spot). Then I found that I was feeling jumpy and had a harder time falling asleep. Then my heart began to flutter so I called the doctor right away. After a simple blood test, it was discovered that I was over-medicated for the thyroid which means that my thyroid was beginning to do something for itself! I discovered that the neck rash, insomnia, heart flutters, jumpiness, sensitivity to temperatures were all signs that my thyroid function had improved and my medication dose was too high. I’m still taking my prescription medication but at a lower dose and I pray my adrenal system will continue to improve so that my dose will decrease again.
I believe that the Lord created nature to work hand-in-hand with the function of our bodies. I’m learning every day how to support my body naturally so it will heal from years of being bombarded with chemicals. I’m not anti-prescription medication — I’m thankful for prescription medication, and I believe the Lord influences the medical profession so that we can live longer healthier lives. But I also believe He intended for us to help ourselves whenever we can. That’s what I’m doing – and every day I pray for guidance so I’ll know what to use and what to avoid and I continue to trust in His healing. Sometimes He heals instantly, sometimes He heals in increments, and sometimes He heals by teaching us how to heal ourselves.
I’m happy to answer any questions –
I was asked recently if children could use essential oil. The short answer is ABSOLUTELY … BUT we have to keep in mind that their skin is thinner and more sensitive so dilute dilute dilute. Young Living has an oil called V-6 that is great for diluting with kids. Remember to keep essential oils far away from their eyes and hands (so they don’t rub their eyes) and be aware of which oils are considered to be “hot” oils (oils that cause skin irritation for sensitive skin like peppermint, clove, Thieves, etc) because those will most likely need to be diluted with a carrier oil (like V6).
