My Story

I have been married to my best friend since 2001 and we have three inspirational children.  I work full time taking care of Hubby, our kids, and our home.  I also work part-time selling essential oils with Young Living as well as educating about their benefits and uses.  

I have always enjoyed cooking and creating in the kitchen.  In 2007, with the birth of my 3rd child, I decided to make nutrition a priority in my house.  I'm not talking about eating some green beans at dinner healthy.  It's more along the lines of a complete overhaul on how we view food and where it comes from.  Eating whole food and minimizing food toxins has become extremely important to me.  In 2010, I started a blog about our adventures in clean eating and changing our healthy perspective.  It is called Kids and my Kitchen and you can find it HERE.  I wrote consistently for 2 years and the process was eye opening.  I have since learned the importance of balance.  While we don't always eat as clean as I would like, we certainly don't eat like we did before.  I try to make most of our food from scratch and I don't bring toxic food ingredients into my house.  I also wrote a brief blog on my spiritual and physical journey in 2012.  It is called Running under Your Wings and can be found HERE.

Fast forward to February 2014.  Hubby and I were struggling for several years on whether or not to medicate our oldest for ADD.  In addition, he struggled with extreme pollen allergies, mild food allergies, and anxiety.  I hated giving him the allergy medication because it gave him nightmares and made him even more inattentive;  not to mention all the internal side effects I was reading about.  A friend of mine told me about how she was using essential oils and invited me to come to a class.  I was floored by this world of essential oils.  How had I not heard about them before?  

I had the healthy food part down, but I didn't have control over the toxins in household cleaners, body care products, and of course, medication that I was allowing into my home.  I'm an avid researcher and in the year to follow, I took my time to get to know essential oils and how they could benefit my family.  I started by using them to aid in sleep and anxiety.  Then, seasonal allergy discomfort.  I had several opportunities to use them to strengthen immune systems during illness and I've seen them completely take away nausea.  I began making my own household and beauty products.  They really fit into my idealogy of making food/items from scratch to eliminate unneeded and harmful ingredients.

So now, I am re-entering the blogging world and would love to share with you my passion once again.  Essential Oils have rounded out my quest for a chemical-free house and I can’t imagine going back to a time without them.  The future of my children is a top priority and giving them a powerful, energetic, long, and healthy life is the focus of my energy right now.
