How I Became Interested in Essential Oils

For the longest time, I thought essential oils were something people used to make their homes smell nice, and that is all.

Then, at the end of last summer my two-year-old daughter fell ill with pneumonia.

We had just brought home our eighth child from the hospital.

I was heartbroken and distraught. I was doing everything I thought I could to keep my children from the “bad” germs, but obviously what I was doing wasn’t working as well as I had hoped. I was tired of using chemicals in our home, and now I felt like I needed to use even more. My children jokingly called me the “hand sanitizer queen,” ha!

So, I did what most moms do in a time of need. I asked for help! A few of of my Facebook friends introduced me to essential oils, and after doing a lot of research, I was hooked! There actually seemed to be a natural path to wellness that I never heard of before.
After getting started, I was so hungry for knowledge!

Shortly thereafter, I learned about The School for Aromatic Studies.  I signed up for a free class.  Guys, it was awesome!  After I completed that course, I signed up to begin my French Aromatherapy certification.  Through this program I have learned so much!

While I’m an advocate for the internal use of essential oils,  safety and moderation are both key words that I use frequently.  My goal here is to share all kinds of oily goodness and knowledge, so that moms can be better equipped to use oils with their families.

Not a day goes by when my children do not ask for their “oils.” From bumps and bruises, to sleep, to giving respiratory support, there really does seem to be “an oil for that!” And with so much false information and myths being shared around the web, I hope that this will be a place where safety is paramount, and where we can learn together how oils can benefit each one of us.
