all about the oils | wellness

It all started with Christmas presents to my sister and I. We were at Costco together and saw essential oil diffusers that we both wanted so we decided to gift them to each other for Christmas. Once I opened it and started diffusing, I knew I loved the idea. I loved the fresh scents and I loved the idea of the oils. I started doing a little Facebook research (the best kind) and got my friend's opinions on the different kinds of oils. I did my own research as well and knew the direction that I wanted to go.

A friend reached out to me about Young Living and I decided to purchase the Premium Starter Kit. Once the box arrived with all of the different oils and a diffuser for my office I knew I was hooked. While I had been waiting for the kit to arrive, I had already purchased a diffuser for the bedroom and now we have them in most of the rooms that we spend any kind of time in...we love them. The whole family is hooked.

The diffuser by the bed has helped me relax and fall asleep faster than I've ever been able to before. I've always been horrible at falling asleep, sometimes laying there for hours wishing it was just time to get up already. I am now able to get into bed and relax for a few minutes before I'm ready to curl up and fall asleep...into a much more restful sleep than I'm used to. 

We use the oils in our home for many things these days, trying out different combinations for the diffuser, coming up with roller recipes and other ways that we can bring the oils into our lives. My sister is fully on board as well and is so excited about making all the sugar scrubs and lip balms and fighting off the sicknesses with her Thieves tea.

As this blog is all about my life and the things that bring it joy - there will be more posts about oils and overall wellness as we continue on this journey. I would love to answer any questions that you might have and am excited to share recipes and ideas along with the design, photography and memory keeping posts that are usually here on the blog.

Happy Oil-ing
