Getting Started with Essential Oils

I vividly remember the day essential oils entered my life.  I had fallen into a situational depression and knew from past experience that pharmaceutical drugs never worked well on me. Getting started with Essential Oils changed my life.

 

Getting Started with Essential Oils

A dear friend who owned a small supplement company showed up with a box full of Essential Oils and told me they would help.  Trusting him, I intuitively began smelling different oils settling on the Rose™ blend which I applied over my heart.

It helped.  Dramatically. And immediately.

The heaviness that had been weighing me down momentarily lifted.  I applied the Rose™ oil quite often (sometimes as often as every 20 minutes) for a few weeks, practically shoving it up my nose during my deepest moments of despair.

Around the same time, we had committed to join some other families for a ski weekend that required a lengthy drive.  I love to ski and my children really wanted to go, but the idea of making the long drive by myself filled me with anxiety so overwhelming I could barely breathe.

Frankincense™ oil was recommended to quell the anxiety, so I tried it.  Not only did it get me through the almost 7 hour drive, but it helped with whiplash.  You see, I sometimes forget that I am not a teenager when I am skiing.  In hindsight intense bumps on limited sleep were not the best idea, but I went for it.  Then I fell and feared whiplash.

So I religiously applied the Frankincense™ to the back of my neck (not realizing at the time that both the front and back of my neck would be impacted).   When my chiropractor examined me upon my return, he informed me that the back of my neck was fine, but the front had whiplash.

At that point, I was feeling enough like myself (with depression and anxiety under control) to start to wonder about how these oils could help with both emotional issues like anxiety and depression and physical issues like whiplash.

Thus began a very long journey that led to the founding of this company.  I read countless blogs, books, reports.  Watched numerous webinars, attended live classes and personally interviewed several experts in the field.   All the while, holding in my heart the idea that I could use this research and knowledge to help others navigate their essential oil journey.

It can be really daunting to start down the Essential Oils path, almost like learning a new language.  There are many varieties of plants and even more opinions on the right and the wrong way to do thing.  I personally believe that we all intuitively know the best oils for ourselves and the best way to use them for ourselves and it is my ultimate intention to help others tap into and awaken their own intuition on oils.

But as part of that journey, it is nice to get a little assist.   You don’t need to read every book.  Sometimes you just want someone else to tell you the highlights or share their own learnings.  This is the intention behind my upcoming FREE masterclass – Getting Started with Essential Oils  – scheduled for next Wednesday, October 28 at 11 a.m.  It both a chance to share what I consider the most important things to know when you get started with essential oils and to answer any other questions you might have on the topic.
