Hi! Thank you for stopping by and learning a little bit about me. I’m a holistic minded mom of 3 and a wife. I’ve been obsessed with natural medicine and natural living as long as I can remember. I also became a certified health/ essential oil coach through American Association of Drugless practitioners to further my expertise in natural options. I’m also a doTERRA Wellness Advocate on a mission to empower other women to take charge of their own health and the health of their families with natural health solutions. I want to help you take charge of your health and the health of your family by utilizing the power of essential oils and easy principles of healthy living that I’ve learned over the last several years taking care of my own family with the same principles. I want to share these principals with you so that you can enjoy more energy, better sleep, healthier skin, nails and hair and overall wellness for your whole family. Essential oils are the essence of nature, providing us the opportunities to utilize the natural compounds found in nature to support our bodies with living healthier and less toxic lives without the side effects of traditional medicines. I’m here to show you how simple it is to live a healthy lifestyle. Once you try essential oils, you’ll never go back!!
How I became passionate about healthy living
I’ve been passionate about healthy living as long as I can remember. When my oldest was born over 21 years ago I wanted to make sure our house was toxin free and our food was organic as much as possible and preservative free. I was working full time at the time balancing creating a healthy home and clean nutrition while having a hectic work schedule. I concentrated on having a healthy home but didn’t worry too much about things outside of the home. I figured it would all balance itself out as long as I kept the home environment healthy and toxin free as much as possible. I’m obsessed with natural living but I’m also practical minded, there are times when all organic food is just not an option and drive through it is. With multiple kids and work and sports there just isn’t always enough time to plan and do everything.
I do keep the house and the nutrition at home as clean as possible but I don’t stress over it. Three kids and over 21 years later, I’m not so particular anymore, as I was when my oldest child was little, although I do only use natural cleaning and laundry products and buy most organic food or other foods from Trader Joe’s without junky ingredients. We do eat occasionally at fast food places.
My Journey With Essential Oils & My Coaching Certification
When my oldest son was little I used homeopathic options as much as possible when he was sick because I didn’t want him having the traditional over the counter products with possible toxic ingredients and side effects. I used the same principals with my other two kids until about over 12 years ago when I first started learning about the benefits of essential oils. I did a lot of research on essential oils and read books about aromatherapy. I followed directions of many books and started making blends for my kids whenever they were sick. I couldn’t believe how well they worked. I got so intrigued that I wanted to learn more and I started using essential oils primarily to support the health of our family.
A few years after that I was introduced to doTERRA essential oils by a friend. (I’ve been a doTERRA customer since 2015.) I instant felt there was a huge quality difference between their oils compared to the oils I had been using even though the oils I was using were from a high quality brand. The best part was that I didn’t have to make so many blends anymore. doTERRA had them premade! I slowly started replacing my oil cabinet with doTERRA oils and I’ve been using them exclusively ever since.
doTERRA is the only brand of essential oils that I recommend to my clients for the pure fact that they work! If you haven’t tried them yet, I highly encourage you to do so. Also doTERRA oils purity is higher than any other brand in the industry. Most essential oils can’t be used for therapeutic purposes such as taken internally but doTERRA can as long as certain safety precautions are followed. Also their their transparent business practices and their humanitarian efforts around the world through their healing hands amazing are some of the reason why I chose to become a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA. I’m so passionate about doTERRA and their products, because our family’s health has changed as a result and I want everyone to experience the same.
In 2017 I felt a calling to follow my passion for natural medicine and I went through training to become certified essential oil/ health coach through American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I decided I wanted to start sharing and teaching about everything I had learned about essential oils and natural living with others since they had had such a profound impact on the health of our family. I upgraded my account to doTERRA wellness advocate and later on founded my company, Eden Purity.
My Autoimmune Disease
I have Crohn’s disease, an autoimmune disease, which I’ve been able to keep under control naturally. You can read more about my struggles with Crohn’s here. What originally put my body in healing mode was the Paleo diet which I followed diligently for a couple of years. I slowly started adding foods that were not allowed on Paleo into my diet with the exception of gluten and I didn’t seem to get problems. Today I eat my version of Paleo and want to share what has worked for me in hopes of helping others. I also utilize essential oils and various supplements to support my body naturally. I wrote a book about my journey and the things I did to get my disease under control. You can find my book here. If you know of anyone suffering from Crohn’s, Colitis or IBS in general, this book offers great suggestions on what to do and what diet to follow to help your body.
My Other Passions
I consider myself an multi passionate mompreneur. When I’m not working my regular job or working with health and wellness related things, I’m spending time with my family, designing jewelry and reading books. I’m a huge book worm and I consider myself a lifelong learner. I’m always looking to learn as much as I can. I read a lot of books regarding, health and wellness, business, self-development, mindset and parenting. I also design and make jewelry for my own jewelry line, Reija Eden Jewelry. I design everyday jewelry pieces as well as essential oil jewelry with lava beads for essential oil diffusing. I’ve also always been interested in makeup and beauty so I founded an online beauty community in 2003 called MakeupTalk.com which I later one ended up selling and moving on.
