ESSENTIAL OILS

IMG_8392

Essential oils are a huge part of my life & were a total game changer for me, and I wanted to share why & how I use them in my home.

Three years ago, I was starting my third year of college. I became frustrated with not being able to sleep, lots of stress, constantly feeling “blah” & could never relax. I knew about oils, but never felt like I knew enough to give them a try. I was looking for options for natural wellness & relaxation, and alternatives to products I was using that contained harmful chemicals.

I decided to order an essential oil starter kit from Young Living (all of the most commonly used oils & a diffuser) and started navigating my way through using them. I was pretty cautious at first, and I did quite a bit of research & asked a ton of questions, but, now I cannot live without them!! I still very much believe in modern medicine but I love that I have found a natural solution for so many things! Yes, I still have products in my house that aren’t necessarily “all natural” but I felt this was the right step towards a healthier life. For example, I support my immune system with thieves oil, or, promote a good nights sleep with lavender oil in my diffuser. I also love making my own essential oil infused sugar scrubs & homemade rollerballs for seasonal sniffles.
