Have you been wanting to get started using essential oils, but don’t know where to begin?  You are in the right place!!

I, too, had no idea what an essential oil was when I was introduced to them several years ago.  I thought the gal teaching the class was a little crazy in fact, because I had no idea essential oils could be used for so many things!?!  I bought a couple of bottles to try for my son who needed respiratory support and for myself because I needed digestive support.  I didn’t think the oils would make much of a difference, honestly, but I thought it was worth a try!  Within one application I was amazed to see the difference in my son and in myself!  After just a week of using the oils, my son’s breathing was better than it had been in months!    My digestive system felt better than it had in years and my curiosity peaked from there!  How could just a few drops of an essential oil seem so powerful and offer such immediate and prolonged relief when nothing else had provided this relief in the past?  I set out on a quest to learn.  And learn I did!!  I poured over books, listened to webinars and read research articles.  I wanted to learn not only how to use these precious essential oils but also how and why they worked so quickly and effectively?!

In a nutshell what I learned is our bodies were created to heal themselves when given the proper support.  The individual constituents or teeny-tiny molecules that make up essential oils provide the perfect, natural support our bodies need.  Because essential oils come from nature, our bodies recognize them as a safe substance and welcome them in to our cells.  Essential oils work at a cellular level and since the cell walls are made of oils, they can cross these cell membranes easily and work to support the body unlike any other substances.  Essential oils are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells and are useful to protect plants.  Through steam distillation, we can capture the essence of plants and then use these protective properties to support our own bodies. 

Learning to use essential oils is fun!   There are numerous books and resources available to learn the application and usage of essential oils.   If you are brand new to essential oils, you may find my Home Essentials Wellness Guide helpful as it contains the TOP 10 oils and how to use them in your home.

Be careful though, as not all essential oils are the same!

To get the kind of results I have been noticing with my family, you need to make sure the purity and potency of the essential oils you use are the highest quality.  dōTERRA offers the highest quality essential oils in the industry.  dōTERRA oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) and are beyond organic standards with no filler, artificial ingredient, chemical substitutes or contaminants. They are sourced all over the world and each batch of oil is tested by a 3rd party for purity and potency.   That is why we choose dōTERRA and only dōTERRA!

Along with being the purest and most potent, dōTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing model enables growers to be paid fair and predictable prices and the resulting crops benefit from improved growing practices.  They take fair trade to a whole new level!!    I fell even more in love with dōTERRA when I heard about the impact they are making in the world. dōTERRA’s company culture is amazing. They operate with an incredibly high degree of integrity and generosity, and it is a joy and privilege to use and share their oils with others.

Shortly after I started using essential oils for my own family, my mother had an unfortunate mishap.  She fell and broke her wrist and her knee cap.  Believing so strongly in the power of these essential oils, I did some research to see what oils would best support her body as she recuperated from wrist surgery and the fracture in her knee.  I started her on a regimen of essential oils, using them topically, aromatically, and internally during her recovery process.  She had a phenomenal and complete recovery!  She not only regained full use of her wrist and knee at the age of 70, but she did it without any physical therapy!!  As a PT for over 20 years, I could hardly believe this myself!?!  She attributed all of her success back to the use of essential oils.  After that experience, I could no longer keep this to myself.  Sharing oils and empowering change in the lives of others has become my life’s passion and it is truly an amazing journey!  I have seen other remarkable experiences in the past several years as people incorporate the use of essential oils into their lives!   Sharing went from a hobby to a full time career.  Now, I have the freedom to work from my own home and help others in a way I never dreamed possible.  I would love to introduce you to this amazing opportunity and have YOU
