my journey with essential oils

I remember when my sister introduced me to essential oils. She told me I had to get a starter kit and try them! And so I did.

I was a little overwhelmed at first. What were these tiny bottles, and why were they so expensive?! And what I ended up discovering was that these little oils held big power…

These little oils would help bring me big healing.


I had been on a 10+ year journey to find a remedy for chronic back pain. X-rays, an MRI, and extensive blood work showed no tangible, physical evidence of a problem. Acupuncture, chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage, and spinal decompression provided relief but never a cure.

For three years I had also experienced chronic stomach pain and digestive issues. Endless amounts of blood drawn, diet eliminations, and doctor’s visits again revealed the same–no known cause, no lasting cure.

I felt captive, like a prisoner in my own body, at the mercy of the unexpected arrival of this persistent pain. In short, I was desperate.

Enter essential oils.

I purchased a start kit and was on my way to learning how to incorporate these things into my routine. {PS $160 was a lot for me. It was a huge investment and a big leap of faith!}

I took it slow, googling a bit here and there, discovering uses, playing with diffuser blends. I began to follow a few helpful Instagram accounts, and slowly but surely I began to notice my health improving.

By no means were the oils a magic cure. It was a long and complex journey, but the gist is this: I learned that my physical pain was not merely physical, but emotionally rooted. And with that knowledge to empower me and essential oils to equip me, I was quickly on my way to healing.


I have since discovered other amazing Young Living products and have begun to incorporate them into my daily routine as well–makeup, skincare, and household cleaning products.

Remember: what we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in them. 

This includes cleaning products used in the home that seep into our respiratory system, disrupt our endocrine system, affect our hormones, and cause a whole mess of problems for our health.

Words truly can’t express how grateful I am for these oils, these products, and this company.

Looking back, I wish I knew then what I know now. I wish I had had the knowledge and tools to support my emotions as well as the products to help care for my physical body and to use in my home all along. It would have saved me thousands of dollars and countless hours spent in waiting rooms and doctor’s offices.

*Note: I am all for getting medical, professional help when necessary–and sometimes it is necessary. I am simply saying that for me, I had tried everything, and what I really needed was to change my lifestyle, habits, stress management, and the products that I used on, in, and around me.


I’ve learned these tiny bottles hold big power and are worth the health and wellness of me and my family.

And it actually makes way more sense for our budget! Instead of purchasing all these products from various retailers, Young Living is our one stop shop where with Essential Rewards we get free products each month and earn points to purchase future products! Win/win!
