Alright, so I wanted to share why I started using essential oils. I mean, they were a pretty popular thing there for a minute… But what’s it really all about?
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’d know that the birth of my daughter prompted a huge change in my lifestyle… And I actually have a friend who loves using oils! She is actually the same friend that I was pregnant at the same time with. Such a funny story actually – don’t joke about getting pregnant, folks.
I don’t remember exactly why I didn’t get into oils when I became friends with her… But she is one of the main reasons I started switching to more natural ingredients and options. I was so inspired by her lifestyle at our age that I really wanted to try to make a change in my life as well. And even more so with my daughter when she was born.
Like most parents, I want the absolute best for my child. But how am I supposed to raise her to be strong and healthy and to want to choose a better life for herself if I don’t teach her to do so? And how can I teach her to do so if I’m not even living that lifestyle?
So needless to say, it has been quite a journey over the course of Lily’s lifetime… I have learned so much. Yet I know that I still have quite a ways to go, too. And that’s okay, as long as I’m still just bettering myself and the choices we make.
I pride myself in making confident and educated choices based on hours upon hours of research done by myself and others who share the same desire for a clean and healthy lifestyle.
So upon another mother’s suggestion to try out Peaceful Bee products, I decided to pick up three rollerballs of her essential oil blends while on sale and I was so impressed! They smelled good, they felt good, and they served their purpose. After a few months… I decided I need to get in on it.
What truly made me come to this conclusion was that I was making every effort to make sure that every little thing that came into our home was good, clean, whole and non-toxic… And I realized that Peaceful Bee offered me no guarantees on the purity of the oils they use.
I decided to ask my friend for suggestions on where to begin and she suggested a book I’m now studying/reading from cover to cover. There are blends and oils for literally everything! Things I would have never even thought to ask about. And it’s seriously so empowering to be able to have all this information and to finally now be able to reap the benefits of all-natural goodness.
I did quite a bit of research before I decided what company to go with, and perhaps I’ll write a blog post on that one day… But doTERRA offers the option to only join as a wholesale member, with no minimum monthly purchase – so it’s easy to get the best price!
I just hope that you guys can learn along with me and that you can be an eye-witness to the difference that this is gonna make in our lives. I’m truly so excited to start using these for my family and getting to talk about it with you all!
