I was introduced to essential oils WAY before they become the fad that they are today. Today you can find oils in practically every store and there are hundreds of different brands.
I was actually 16 when I first heard of essential oils. Looking back, it's kind of funny that I was actually already a teenager by the time I heard about oils since my family was already into a lot of natural things that other people may never have heard of or been into...but back to the story...
We had some friends who came over to our house and were going to teach a class for us! The irony was that I was actually sick when they came to teach the class...I had been suffering from one of the worst sore throats I can ever remember having as a kid. It was the kind of sore throat where you just hate even swallowing...drinking water, eating food, or even swallowing my own saliva was absolute misery. I can still remember how miserable I felt.
I had tried all the other natural remedies we would try for a sore throat...the honey cayenne tea (yuck!), the raw minced garlic, gargling with hydrogen peroxide (another yuck!), taking a spoonful of coconut oil, and even the awful and disgusting thick mixture of water and slippery elm powder...nothing was even TOUCHING this sore throat.
So as I was listening to the class that my friends were teaching, all I was thinking was...
"Do these oils actually work the way they say they do???"
I kept hearing about this oil they called Thieves. I knew that was the oil I wanted to test. So after the class, I tried a drop of Thieves on my tongue to see if it did anything.
I kid you not...5 seconds later, my pain level from this sore throat went from a 10 to a 2... I was completely BLOWN AWAY.
It was at that moment that I knew without a doubt there was something to these essential oils...and I knew that I never wanted to live without Thieves again.
Since that first mind-blowing experience, I've experienced hundred's of amazing "WOW" moments with oils. They really truly do work. You just have to know HOW to use them and WHERE to use them to get the best results for what you are trying to accomplish.
Educating people on how to use essential oils safely and in the right places is my passion.
