My relationship with essential oils dates back many year.

In the early 2000’s I was racing triathlons and mixed potions to massage into my legs.  In the late 2000’s my asthma was severe and I was reacting to medications and slated to take a designer drug to control the decline-   lavender become my go-to.  My husband and children used oils when we were sick for steam inhalation. And from 2009-2011 as I flew all over the US for my yoga training (over 50 flights in one year alone) immune boosting oils were my friend as I massaged them into the soles of my feet before each flight.

More recently my oils have been about creating a favorite personal scent, to deepen meditation, helping my daughter relax, “rewarding” myself after cleaning (lemon in a spray bottle with water) and most importantly as a way to manage some anxiety I experience in closed spaces and when flying.

As I look back I have a long history with oils- even I had forgotten how extensively I have used them.

So imagine my surprise when I was introduced to doTERRA by colleagues in my self care coaching association. I teach and practice Ayurvedic-based self care habits that remind us that optimal health comes from lining up with the rhythms and gifts of nature and our ecosystem. doTERRA essential oils are a perfect support for these practices. And I began to use the oils daily as part of my routine for self care. 

A simpler routine, less toxins in my environment, more choices for how I manage my moods and health issues, and greater support for sleep and eating routines. No more running to the health store when I feel a cold coming on.

This is my world- and I invite you to explore it with me.
