Our Journey

nfam16-31

Hello! My name is Lisa:)

I am a wife to an amazing man and a mom to three precious little boys.  Our oldest son was born with a birth defect known as Microtia and Atresia; simply meaning that his right ear did not fully form and that he had a closed off ear canal-no hearing from that side.  As a new mom, I started thinking about anything and everything that I may have done during my pregnancy or what I was around during my pregnancy that could have caused his birth defect.  I always considered myself to be healthy, didn’t drink or smoke, and exercised.   The specialists all reassured me that it was nothing that I did…it just happens.  Doctors currently do not know the cause of Microtia and Atresia.

This was the start of our journey to wellness.  Brian and I started reading the backs of labels on our everyday products and really thinking about the foods that we were putting into our bodies.  Having a family gets you to thinking about these things and wanting better.  The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health Studied 2,983 ingredients in home products and found 884 toxic ingredients. Of those, 218 toxic ingredients were known to cause reproductive problems, 146 were known to cause cancer tumors, 778 were known to be toxic to the human body and 314 of them were known to cause biological mutations.  These chemicals are allowed to be in our products even though other countries have banned them. 

We were introduced to essential oils March of 2016. We were non believers of essential oils at first but started researching them and the various oil companies anyways.  We did tons of research along with prayer and decided to give them a try.  We felt confident in our decision to purchase our Premium Starter Kit through Young Living due to Young Living’s Seed to Seal Process (http://seedtoseal.com/en/process) and found that this was one of the best decisions that we have ever made for our family!  We quickly saw how effective oils were and how much they blessed us physically, mentally, financially and spiritually.

Thieves was one of the first oils to win us over.  Thieves for immune support has been a total game changer for us!  We now feel like we can make it through the fall and winter cold seasons comfortably. We diffuse Thieves in the evening when we are at home, drink Thieves wellness tea, and use a Thieves immune support blend for topical use.  I can honestly say that this year we have been less sick than any other year and if we do happen to catch something, we seem to be able to kick it in half the time! 

Cedarwood was a close second and helped us support a good nights sleep.  We often diffuse a Cedarwood combo in our bedrooms at night to help support relaxation and sleep. We also rub a drop of Cedarwood on our big toes before bed (Vita-Flex point for the brain).  A few years ago, I would have laughed at the idea of rubbing a drop of oil on my toe for sleep support but definitely not now:)

Our first intentions were just to use oils but after we witnessed how amazing these little bottles truly are, we decided to share them with others:)  It is very rewarding to know that we are helping others to live a more chemical free lifestyle while being able to make an income as a stay at home mom.  We would love for your to join us on this journey to wellness!
