My Oily Journey:
I started my journey to eliminate harmful substances from my household and life in the mid 1990s. I was living in the Virgin Islands on the beautiful island of St. John. I met many people there who were "crunchy" and by the time I moved back to the states, I considered myself a "granola girl". I also started my essential oil journey while there. A friend introduced me to Tea Tree oil to relieve the itch from mosquito bites. (The mosquitoes there are huge and numerous!) I also work in a boutique shop that carried numerous oils, but they were mostly for aromatherapy.
When I became pregnant with my daughter in 2001, I started seeing a midwife and she recommened numerous oils to support my pregnancy: peppermint to help with morning sickness, and for during labor, Clarey Sage and Lavender.
I moved back to the states in 2004. Because I had a toddler who was constantly putting things in her mouth, I starting to really pay attention to what I was using for cleaning. I tried numerous natural cleaners and gradually started making my own so that I had control of the ingredients. I also gradually starting using more oils and being concerned with the quality.
I thought I was using high quality oils until a friend introduced me to Young Living in 2016. I bought a starter kit and never looked back. I could tell right away the quality was better then the other brands I had been buying and I have never gone back. I now use many other Young Living products and I tell you, it feels great to know that I have greatly reduced the amount of harmful substances use in my home!
