One year ago exactly, my sister started talking about essential oils. I was like, uh huh, yah ok, you have fun with that. Then I was like, hmmm.. that sounds kind of interesting. And then I walked into her house one day, and it smelled soooooo good. And I was like, I want one of these, what are they called? And then I got my starter kit with my diffuser, and I think I couldn’t even remember what it was called for the longest time, I just loved the way it made my house smell. But then my sister kept telling me things like, “You have to try this and that and did you know?” I kind of liked it that way for awhile, it was like she was my human Oil Encyclopedia, I didn’t bother to look anything up, I just asked her. She would spend hours after work reading her oil bible book and looking stuff up online and I just loved my nice smelling house.
I didn’t get into oils for the health benefits, I simply wanted a house that smelled nice without using chemicals. It worked for awhile.
But then curiosity just got to me.
I started trying different things and every time I was amazed. And the pieces started coming together. One day about six months into my oil journey I had an aha moment. I realized that, duh, of course these oils are amazing. They aren’t man-made, they are God-made and everything God makes is perfect and has a purpose. This is where my life really started to change. Understanding the power of essential oils and experiencing that power changed my life and the life of my family. We started using oils for EVERYTHING. I’m not really exaggerating here. We cook, clean, and support our health with them. We live a completely non-toxic life. Our home is a sanctuary. It smells divine all the time too.
So then we went a little further down the road and my husband enters the picture. I mean he’s been here all along, but not REALLY here. The visa bill brought him into reality. Every month I was spending hundreds of dollars to a company called Young Living. What is going on? This has to stop. STOP. Uh, like what? You mean stop, like for real? Like no more oils? Yah, no, not happening.
Here’s where my personality kind of shines.
Number one: It’s best if you don’t tell me no. If you want me to do something, this is the exact opposite way to communicate it to me. Number two: There was no way that I was going to give up my oils at this point. Absolutely not. Whatever I had to do, I was going to do. And that is where this all started.
I called my ‘Oil Encyclopedia’.
In the very beginning of this she took me to a meeting and told me all the business-y stuff about Young Living. At the time I was like, nope, not me. I have enough to do, I can’t add another thing. Well, those days were over and I was scrambling. I was ready to do whatever it took, rearrange my schedule, do less, do more, whatever I had to, to get my oils paid for.
We had another ‘business meeting’ and I learned that all I had to do was basically tell people about what I found and help them to experience it too. Seriously? Umm.. That seems too easy. But I did it. And within a week I had my oils for that month paid for. For. Real.
And then once I started telling people what I found, and how it changed my life, I couldn’t stop, because suddenly I was seeing other people experience the same awesome results as us, and a passion began to brew in my soul.
This is where I am today.
On a mission, with a passion. Every single person I know needs to know what I know. Essential oils are amazing and they will change your life. I promise.
All my love,
