Essential oils might seem like just another health fad, but they’ve actually been in use for thousands of years. I’ve been using them myself since about 2003, a little while before they became as crazy popular as they are today. In fact, I remember getting excited when all these new products started coming out with essential oils–cleaners and hand sanitizers, for example. It was so nice to see non-toxic disinfectants on the market!
My very first experience with essential oils was when I had a fungus underneath my big toenail. It was gross and embarassing. My doctor said the only way to clear it up would be with a dangerous systemic anti-fungal medication. Always being protective of my health, I decided to forgo that option. However, my doctor did mention that some people have cleared up toenail fungus with tea tree oil. I was intrigued. I did some research on the internet and soon I had a regime in place for attacking that disgusting fungus. I was quite happy with the results.
I’ve had many wonderful experiences with essential oils since.
Soon after that first experience, a co-worker of mine shared about how he went to some expo and tried out Thieves essential oil spray. His girlfriend had a sore throat that day and sprayed the Thieves oil on, and soon her throat was feeling better. Well, that sounded awesome.
Soon, my then roommate and I found ourselves at a Body Mind and Spirit expo, and sure enough, there was a Young Living Essential Oils distributor there. My roommate bought a kit of seven or so of the most popular oils, and I bought a reference guide so I could study it and decide what I wanted to order. Some of my first oils were lavender, Joy, Purification and Highest Potential, which remain some of my favorite essential oils today.
My roommate and I used to dream of running a natural health clinic of some sort and helping people use essential oils and herbs, give nutritional advice, and she was going to do therapeutic massage. That dream faded away as I started photography school, got married and had kids. So it’s kind of neat that now, over a decade later, I’m launching my essential oils business. I still love Young Living Essential Oils, so that is what I am selling!
