I’m a mom and AADP Certified Essential oil Coach. I’ve been using essential oils for several years now. About two years ago I discovered doTerra essential oils and became a doTERRA Wellness Advocate after learning about the company and the quality of their essential oils and other products.
How I Got Started
Several years ago I was intrigued by the power of plants and natural medicine. I ended up purchasing several books on the subject and I also built myself a whole essential oil cabinet. Whenever someone in our family would get sick or have an illness, I would use the various books I had to create essential oil blends. It was amazing to see how well essential oils worked. I attended a doTERRA essential oil party and learned about the benefits of using doTERRA oils and other supplements. I first became a wholesale customer and later on changed to a Wellness Advocate because I wanted to share the oils and their benefits with others. To further my education and knowledge in oils, I enrolled in essential oil certification class and became certified Essential Oil Coach with a mission to help others discover the benefits of essential oils and make their everyday lives healthier and toxin free.
How Essential Oils Have Helped Our Family
About a year ago my husband was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy. Half of his face muscles didn’t work and we had to tape his eye shut every night. He was being treated with conventional medicine of anti-inflammatory medication under a care of a doctor. He was having a lot of nerve pain so I started to search for an alternative. I found an essential oil protocol that someone else had used to help with his Bell’s Palsy. I started to apply the same protocol and the same essential oils on my husband, applying the oils on his back in a certain order. We started seeing improvement and about a few weeks to a month after using the oils, we saw a major improvement. He was also being treated with a laser by a chiropractor. We fully believe that with the combination of traditional medicine and alternative medicine, he was able to heal a lot quicker than what is typical with Bell’s Palsy while also not having permanent nerve damage.
I have Crohn’s disease myself which an intestinal auto-immune disease. About 5 years ago I searched for a natural ways to heal my disease because I was tired of using the conventional medicines that didn’t work for me. I ended up going grain, dairy and gluten free and after about 3 months my symptoms subsided. My daily pains were finally gone and I was able to enjoy my daily life without dealing with the daily pains and limitations of Crohn’s disease. Currently I follow a strict gluten free diet but have added dairy, corn, rice and beans in my diet. I eat my own modified paleo diet where I avoid packaged foods as much as possible. If I’m not careful, especially if eating out, I can get exposed to gluten and it can sometimes cause problems. If this happens I use essential oils to lessen the effects on my system. I feel great knowing that I always have oils on hand to help me and put me in the drive seat of my health and my family’s health.
I’ve used essential oils for our children on many occasions. I like to use them as preventative by boosting their immune system and also when they get a touch of something such as a cold or a flu or for muscle aches and pains. I also like to use essential oils for their mood boosting and relaxing properties. To get started with essential oils, contact me and I’ll go over everything you need to get started.
