What do you love about essential oils?
I love that they give us a tool to help ourselves and our families. Every single day I am reaching for a bottle of essential oil to help with sleep, anxiety, immunity, bruises, tantrums, energy…the list is endless. I like to call them my First Aid Kit. As a bonus to their incredible significance in our health care routines, their aroma is beautiful.
My home often smells like a day spa, where I adjust the diffuser with essential oils according to the mood I want to set, whether it be uplifting or calming. I also love that the essential oils I choose (doTERRA) are natural, powerful and free from fillers to make them pure. I love hearing testimonials that an essential oil has truly helped somebody’s health.
What inspired you to get into essential oils?
I have been a long time lover and user of oils, mostly for their aroma and eventually I started to use them to enhance my health.

In more recent years I have loved using oils on my family, and was approached by a nutrition colleague to explore doTERRA essential oils.
