What got me started on essential oils? I was injured on the job in 2002. It was serious and I was off for a long period of time (3 years) During this time I was loaded down with medications! lots of medications. I finally went to see a holistic healer to help me because the meds were not helping me "get back to work". I was soon to understand how much damage Norco, ibuprofen and flexural were doing to my body, organs. I started to get deep tissue massages to keep me functioning and it was working. But the deep tissue, well, lets be real, that HURTS!! So I started having them add lavender to my lotion...and low and behold, after about 10 minutes I could no longer feel the pain. ITS A MIRACLE!! As I dove into the essential oil world I found that everything can be addressed with this stuff. I have been trying to supplement my income so I thought, hell, I am already passing this stuff out.... what about becoming a "dealer". So here I am, doTERRA has won me over. I am having a great time checking out their mixtures and home products. I hope you will join me in my adventure into a more holistic living.
