A hobby turned business… I am ever so grateful. Thinking back to the beginning and taking you along:
1. How did you first hear about essential oils?
>>I worked in an Aveda salon with my sister and a couple of our now members. They had oils- tea tree for skin and lavender for calming were my go to!
2. What made you say "Yes!" to giving it a try?
>>A lady at a homeschool convention had a workshop “Oils of the Bible”. I was amazed! Attended another one of her workshops the next day and she talked about how easy oils were to use on her kids and farm animals, including goats. I didn’t have animals, but I did have kids (same thing, right?!) and needed easy! I bought a Pocket Reference book and read it for a few weeks before signing up with the first person I knew who was a YL distributor.
3. Do you remember one of the first times you shared oils with someone? How did you feel?
>>>I shared Samples with everyone, because I just wanted them to see the quick effect they had! I wasn’t timid at all to begin with. Excited to have others relate to my crazy holistic ways.
4. What has Your Wellness Tribe meant to you?
>>>You know how you walk into something in life and don’t know what the outcome will be, but you have butterflies in your stomach and joy in your heart? That’s how I felt when I first got into contact with four other ladies... they all shared a similar vision for connecting with other women through ALL areas of life. So far it’s meant having ears to listen when my husband is sick and I’m kind of at the end of my rope. It’s been a group of people cheering me on and getting to watch others be cheered through their health. Constant encouragement and lifelong relationships!
5.What opportunities does Young Living give you and your family?
>>> We have solutions! Real, tangible, easy solutions to every day issues. Our days are much more manageable with a well stocked arsenal of oils. I don’t mean that lightly, we reach for oils at least a dozen times a day. Diffusing to change the aroma and environment of a room. Down the spine to help our bodies manage the unseen things we come into contact with. In our skin care and DIY “Everything Cream”. We are healthier and happier with YL in our lives. Fear of health issues is kicked to the curb. Plus, this is my business. My sole income. A work from home Momma isn’t something I planned to be. But it’s been so good to have that be possible while my kids are little!
6.What has been your greatest YL wellness story?
>> Mental health... by far, my biggest reason for starting with YL. I’ve been able to connect physical symptoms with emotional strongholds through the teachings of Gary Young. Plus, I have tools to help my brain and nervous system be strong! Supplements I recommend- Super B, MultiGreens, and OmegaGize. Oils- “Great Day Protocol” Harmony, Valor, White Angelica, and Joy daily!
SO thankful for you taking the time to read my story! I believe stories and sharing the good in our lives leads to healing and connection. I pray you are inspired, uplifted, and strive for more here in this community!
