Why Essential Oils?
Are you fed up with your healthcare options?
Are you interested in exploring some more natural alternatives to taking care of your health?
Essential oils have been used for many years in herbal medicine and are safe and effective. They have many uses and are 50-70x more potent than their herbal counterpart.
One drop of essential oil can enter your bloodstream in just a few seconds and is able to help support your body with whatever your health goals may be.
Why I Love Essential Oils
When I started using essential oils 10 years ago, I was looking for a way to support my body with what I was going through. I had just come through a significant tragedy and I needed some emotional support to help clear the fog, depression, and anxiety that I was feeling.
When I went and talked to my healthcare provider about how I was feeling, I felt completely ignored and that I was wasting their time.
So I started to explore other options and that is how I found essential oils! I started using foundational supplements and essential oils to get through the feelings of depression that I was going through and, slowly, but surely, I started to feel more like myself.
