The below audio is produced by a woman I greatly admire. Her journey inspires me to continue sharing. If you’re curious why everyone is talking about essential oils, I highly recommend you listen to this.
I’m a work from home Dad…well, I parent two dogs and a cat. 😉
Before essential oils, my mom spent the better part of her life searching for solutions, going from doctor to doctor, taking numerous prescription drugs that came with pamphlets full of side effects. Each “fix” was just a “band-aid”, and usually caused another problem. It was such a hopeless cycle, and not a way to live. As for myself, I’ve seen chiropractors, doctors, massage and physical therapists, and even an acupuncturist. After almost ten years, and thousands of dollars, the only remaining option was a specialist who would inject a coctail of drugs into my spine, and this was not a permanent solution.
To make matters worse, both of our households were full of cleaning supplies, toiletries, perfumes/colognes, air fresheners, and more, all of which contained chemicals known to have negative effects on health.
After being introduced to essential oils, I was skeptical, but I already tried everything else. I thoroughly researched all the options, and confirmed the old saying, “you get what you pay for” (ask me about retail oils). Since our family continued to see results, it only made sense to adjust where we spent our money, and what products were allowed into our home.
If my sister-in-law didn’t share essential oils with me, we would still be searching for solutions. Let’s meet for coffee, or gather some friends at your place, and I will share what I’ve learned the last couple years! No high pressure sales. Just a bunch of smelling, and education. Contact me, and I’ll follow up with you ASAP!!
Until then, may you have a happy, healthy, and prosperous future.

Purification for dog odor is working wonders, lavender on my big toe is helping to promote restful sleep, peppermint on my belly supported digestion the other night...it also helped my head feel better in the morning, and finally Ortho Sport helped my sore knee after training.
Forgot to tell you my exciting news. Went in for my six month dental checkup, and the dentist said it's the best check up I’ve had. We talked longer than it took for my teeth to be cleaned. Only thing I’ve been doing different is using the Thieves toothpaste and mouthwash.
Cedarwood essential oil has been promoting restful sleep on random nights of need. I've also seen quick results from a drop of Thieves on my tongue, or RC rolled on my neck, forehead, and down my nose for respiratory stuff.
Pressed from the fresh rinds of the fruit, Lemon Vitality is a delicious essential oil that has that wonderfully nostalgic taste and smell of lemon drop candy. It’s a great substitute in any recipe calling for fresh lemon juice, rind, or flavoring—without all the hassle of zesting, grating, or juicing. It’s especially good in shortbread cookies, jams, or even a glass of ice-cold water.
Lemon Vitality’s versatility in sweet and savory recipes is what makes this fruit a popular item in kitchens around the world. Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes. Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. I’m available for any essential oil question – Get in touch!
Essential oils are used for so many things! From neutralizing odors, to alleviating minor aches and pains associated with daily life. They’re used to promote an emotional well-being, to promote restful sleep, and help with occasional stress or minor anxiety. There are essential oils that can be used to suppress occasional muscle spasms, support digestive function, help maintain cholesterol and blood sugar levels already in the normal range. They can also help with upset/sour stomach, and things associated with aging like: hair loss, wrinkles, and other aging on the skin. Certain oils can even be used on pets and babies, but please do your research first.
After I got my first set of essential oils, I scoured the internet. Typically my searches started with “essential oils for…”. Initially I was more interested in what Doctors, Scientists, Universities, and Aromatherapists had to say. However, I eventually changed my focus to testimonials from everyday people like myself. Their success stories have only made me want to share essential oils more.
Please understand that essential oils can’t cure, prevent, or treat diseases. They are not a magic bullet. They are just a piece to your overall health regimen. Doing your own research and speaking with your primary care physician is advised. Please use the contact section to let me know if you have any questions! Chances are, someone you know is experiencing success using essential oils. You owe it to yourself to at least try them.
Below are some of my success stories:
2/8/17 — Wendy said she her husbands respiratory system was acting up, so they tried a competitor blend, and it did nothing. Then she tried R.C. and he was seeing results right away. #QualityMatters
8/31/16 — I just got this testimonial from Kathy, “I was just reading an article on fluoride toothpaste. I never realized but I used to get sores on my tongue all the time and since using YL toothpaste I haven’t gotten them at all. I read that sodium laurel sulfate is in toothpaste and can cause canker sores etc.”
8/11/16 — I was skeptical about reading what Black Spruce could do for a minor muscle ache around my left shoulder, but it helped!
7/26/16 — Had two bug bites on my ankles. Googled it, and am currently itch free after applying lavender. Awesome!
7/9/16 — Mom no longer has the lump under her arm after she started using the natural deodorant from Young Living. She ran out, went back to old deodorant, and the lump came back. When her order came in from YL, she went back to the natural and the lump went away. Awesome!
4/22/16 — I got them THREE times today. Finally googled essential oils for hiccups and was so surprised how quickly I got rid of them. #PeppermintEssentialOil
2/16/16 — Seth used one drop thieves on his tongue pressed to the roof of his mouth, and a 50/50 blend of RC/carrier rubbed just below his jawline on his neck a few times a day. These oils helped his immune system move through some nasty’s in a few days, and in a much more tolerable way, as opposed to the yearly 1-2 weeks. Thieves lozenges helped too.
2/8/16 — burnt my arm with steam, applied lavender and peppermint and found some relief. Next day I applied frankincense to help keep my skin looking good.
1/31/16 — I didn’t want to get too crazy, so I just ran my finger around the edge of the clove bottle and put it on my tooth, and on the gums around the tooth. It totally helped! It was most obvious on the area of the tongue I accidentally touched. How cool!
1/26/16 — Once again my mom texts me, “I can’t believe I clean humidifiers tomorrow and they don’t look like they need it. Thieves cleaner is great. No more bleach.”
1/24/16 — My mom has finally found a lip balm that works all the way through the night and into the morning. Seth really likes it too. No more dry-chapped lips!
12/20/15 — Seth confirms Cedarwood essential oil promotes restful sleep on random nights of need.
Copaiba, Valor, and Panaway continue to help me on a regular basis when my shoulder tightens up from daily routine.
12/9/15 — Mom just said, “Forgot to tell you my exciting news. Went in for my six month dental checkup, and the dentist said it’s the best check up I’ve had. We talked longer than it took for my teeth to be cleaned. Only thing I’ve been doing different is using the Thieves toothpaste and mouthwash.”
11/16/15 — My mom, Seth and me love the free bottle of Ortho Sport we got from our last qualifying purchase. It’s amazing on my leg cramps after exercise!!!
11/8/15 — My mom has been seeing ongoing support from her essential oils the past couple weeks, from help with her occasional sleeplessness, to suppressing occasional muscle spasms in her feet.
10/24/15 — Mom told me that at least a couple people have asked her what she’s doing different, because she seems happier. I’m so excited to have yet another success story with essential oils!!!!
10/16/15 — This past week I’ve been waking up just a few minutes before my alarm goes off. For those who don’t know, waking up naturally is healthier than waking by alarm. The only more recent change I can attribute this goodness to is diffusing lavender essential oil.
10/7/15 — Last night I was able to get some relief in my shoulder muscle by rolling on the Panaway blend of essential oils. Today it smells like fall in our house because I’m diffusing the Thieves essential oil blend.
10/2/15 — Peppermint essential oil saves the day! Seth and I had dairy for the first time in awhile, causing me to feel bloated. We mixed some of our peppermint essential oil with a carrier oil, rubbed it on our bellies, and shortly after we got some relief! Cool!!
9/28/15 — Lemon essential oil in my water has stopped my constant throat clearing. This is something I’ve dealt with for as many years as I can remember (15+ years?)!
Below are additional common FAQ’s:
I’ve never been skeptical of essential oils, at least from the company I use and promote, because they come from nature, not a laboratory. I know this because of the seed to seal promise (the videos below are only a couple minutes each, and well worth the time).
To me, it just makes sense to use essential oils. What doesn’t make sense are the drugs we take with the never ending list of side effects. I didn’t realize it until I finally put the pieces together, but one pain reliever I was using consistently, was causing me to randomly bruise! What ended up solving the problem? Lifestyle adjustments. I haven’t used this drug for almost half a year now.
While drugs may work, at what cost? Since I’ve been a kid, my mom has been told, “try this, try that, try this other thing.” Unfortunately, the solutions have only been a bandaid, and she just ends up with different problems.
My one concern with essential oils was whether I could add another expense to my already inadequate financial situation, but after finding they helped me, I couldn’t justify NOT getting them, and found I was spending plenty of money on other “solutions”.
