My Young Living journey began in 2010. I had quit my job with the school district to homeschool my nephew, and when the job went so did the health insurance. For YEARS I had struggled with a weak immune and respiratory system. And my metabolism was pretty much non existent. Certain times of the year made it REALLY difficult for me to breathe and I just could not stay above the wellness line. I needed support and I was looking for something natural and affordable. That's when my dear friend Vera invited me to a class to learn about oils. I'd never really heard of using them, but I loved what I heard at the meeting. I especially loved the emphasis that God made and gave us the plants and oils. I loved the Biblical references. Through research I decided to see if Lavender would help make getting through fall and spring a little more pleasant. to my surprise, it did. I tried the Thieves and Oregano as a "wellness blend" on my feet, and loved the results. I still use it to this day. 2 oz of NingXia Red a day really helps to support my immune system and gives me sustainable energy. The more I learned about toxins the more I knew I needed them out of my home, so Thieves Cleaner is the ONLY cleaner I use. It's effective, smells great and saves me a LOT of money. I also have the same results with the shampoo, deodorant, soap and other skin care products. The Savvy Minerals makeup is the ONLY makeup I have been able to use in years that does not break out my skin. I LOVE it, and will never wear anything else. In short, Young Living has been a true Godsend to me; and I am so grateful for it. I am very blessed to know be able to teach others and help get them started on their journey wellness and abundance.
