Why Essential Oils?
Definition: What are essential oils? The oils come from the glorious, aromatic life force of most shrubs, plants, herbs, flowers, trees, roots and seeds. They are typically extracted using a steam distillation process that keeps their properties intact.
Who am I? I am a wife to Jacob, an amazing man of God and my partner in crime. I am the mama to Kolbe Therese, a feisty one year old who keeps me on my toes and is my main reason for going oily in the first place. I am a former elementary educator, now stay at home mom and I seriously have the BEST JOB EVER. I love taking care of my family in any way that I can and that includes finding the most natural and healthy ways to live life. Ever since ditching the chemicals, processed foods, and meds, we, as a family, have noticed such a positive change in our health!
Why Essential Oils? When I became a mama, I felt totally lost in how support my little one’s immune system. I also noticed how quick I was to reach for OTC meds than to try a holistic alternative. In addition, I was frequently out of commission due to a pounding head and one day after taking my some meds AGAIN, I started to notice how lethargic it left Kolbe after breastfeeding. After stressing out about her well being until the medicine wore off, I made a vow that I was going to do everything in my power to try to find a natural way to make us healthy. Considering that I planned to breastfeed at least a year, I was going to definitely need some intervention and fast. A friend started telling me about essential oils and their benefits and I thought, why not? What is it going to hurt? So I signed up with Young Living and I have not regretted it for even a second. I have been able to support my immune system in a holistic way and it has made me a happier and healthier mama!
Why did I choose Young Living? I have had a few wonderful friends share essential oils with me and felt confident that Young Living and their extremely pure oils were an amazing fit for our family. They are the missing piece to this whole mindset of good nutrition and overall wellness. I love that their products and oils are beyond organic, gentle and effective. They have no expiration date.
