It’s hard to live TOXIC FREE in a TOXIC WORLD

I’m a mom, wife, sister, and daughter.  My goal daily is to do my best to live an organic, whole and natural life. I live in the country of South Central Texas on 7 acres. I garden, raise chickens ,dogs, cats, goats and humans.  I’ll post meal plans, cooking demos, and dinner ideas.

Many people don’t realize the effects that everyday toxins have on their life, home and family, pets too! Things like FORMALDEHYDE, SLS, PHALATES, Artificial Fragrances and coloring all have horrible side effects on our bodies.  Both emotionally and physically. Side effects like headaches, hormone imbalance, thyroid troubles, adrenal fatigue and depression can all be caused by environmental toxins.  Many of these toxins are in our everyday product use like shampoos, lotions, makeup and perfumes.  Then we have household cleaners, laundry soap, laundry softener, air sprays, melts and candles contributing to the toxic environment we live in.

I suffered from all of the effects, including weight gain and sleepless nights. Doctors were happy to put me on a long list of pills to help me get through life, but I was not happy with the thought of that and can I say “more side effects!” NO THANK YOU! I was determined to find out what was causing me to have such a horrid life, feeling like I was 80 years old and only being in my 40’s, but I had no energy.  Doing some research resulted in some horrifying discoveries.  It wasn’t just obvious things like cleaners and chemicals I used against bugs, or in my garden, these chemicals were also found in the foods I ate! One of the biggest offenders on my table was HFCS, read about it and other toxins here. I knew I had to do something and fast.

I started my clean life journey by first cleaning out my home of all recognizable toxins.  I use essential oils and supplements to keep myself and my family healthy and well. You don’t have to garden, live in the country or raise animals to eat clean.  It’s easy, peasy and I’d like to show you how you can do it too!  No matter where.  From your apartment or condo or maybe a luxury mansion.  It doesn’t matter, we all want to live long healthy lives right? You can get a little more information about chemicals and the effects they have on our lives by clicking here.I also have a health and wellness coaching practice using the MEPS form of coaching which stands for Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual.  I believe that health and wellness needs to be balanced among all four of these areas in order to truly live well. I help people to be well from the outside i and the inside out.

Let me help you start your journey to health,  healing and wellness.  Phone, email and live video consultations are available as well as local, in person sessions.  Coaching from the inside out and the outside in.  Let me guide you on your journey to wellness and inner healing today!

I hold an Aroma Therapy and French Medicinal Medicine certification through the School for Aromatic Studies.  I have completed 1500+ hours covering aromatherapy use in the home through diffusing, internal and topical applications.  I’d be more than happy to get you started on a road to wellness using aromatherapy.  I often use the two certifications along with the wellness coaching sessions hand in hand to bring a person to a life of overall health and wellness, from the inside out and to the outside in.

Are you using essential oils yet?

Truthfully I had some essential oils in my bathroom cabinet and they were just purely purchased to scent my bath water.  The thought of a few drops of oil doing anything for my health or wellness sounded like VOODOO to me, LOL I was the biggest skeptic to any therapeutic value whatsoever.

I have not only been able to rid my home of nasty TOXINS, but I have been fortunate enough to keep my families wellness quite a bit above the norm.  Yep, when people are hacking and sneezing, we just go merrily along and remain well.  I haven’t needed a doctor for any illness in over 4 years.  I don’t get any vaccines for flu or pneumonia either.  I am not however, telling you to stop taking any medications or to not get any vaccines, that is purely a choice you need to make for yourself.  I am just sharing my story with you.

Little did I know that not only would these tiny bottles help my overall wellness, but lift my emotions and keep my hormones happy! I am still discovering new ways they help me everyday.  They are great in the sheets too! I’ve got a book to share all about how to use essential oils to help you sleep, oh and that other thing you may do in the bedroom too…….you know, the hokey pokey.  Yea, they help there as well.

When I started my health and wellness journey to rid my home and family of nasty TOXINS trust me, I tried a whole bunch of different oil brands.  Young Living brand was the ONLY oil that provided any success for my family and I. 

Young Living is the WORLD LEADER in essential oils over 20 years and with a SEED TO SEAL GUARANTEE you can be sure you are getting quality therapeutic oils.  We own our own farms and distillation facilities around the world, practice sustainable harvesting practices and harvest at the peak time.  

In January of 2015 I was fortunate to be able to attend one of the Winter Harvest weeks in Naples, Idaho to harvest Balsam Fir, it was life changing.  These tiny bottles help me to be TOXIC FREE in a TOXIC world.

Young Living  is sold exclusively through independent distributors like me. Working from home, advocates, like myself, introduce, educate about, and share essential oils in their local markets through person-to-person contact and globally through websites (like this one!).

What ended up being a journey to find natural wellness products to help me and my family live healthier, turned into a passion of sharing these natural solutions with others. My hearts desire is to help other people like you see how simple and effective essential oils can be…without the toxins or chemicals that come with other products.  This video sums it all up here and I have to thank my friend Kara Cozier over at Lifesanity.com for allowing me to use this:

I’ve used essential oils for over 5 years. I love making all kinds of recipes with essential oils, including body butter, toothpaste,  hair serum, laundry detergent and so much more. I finally feel confident using essential oils because I found a brand that has changed my life, changed my health, and made my home 100% toxic-free!  This is how I live TOXIC FREE in a TOXIC world, using cleaning, personal and other non toxic products from Young Living.
