hobbies & health.

I’ve never been much of a hobby gal. I’m not a DIYer, photography completely overwhelms me and I’m fairly certain that I would lose a limb to a sewing machine. Nerdy as it may be, if I have a hobby at all, it’s probably learning (from which my love for reading and writing come). Scary, I know. Nonetheless, it’s true, and (ask my extremely accommodating husband), I’m continually finding new pursuits to research, study and understand.

If there’s anything I love more than learning, it’s when learning and helping others combine. I love gathering, sharing and educating, and, for the past few months (with a lot of support and wisdom from a wonderful team!), I have loved learning more about essential oils and using that information to benefit others. I have had the joy of helping friends become more empowered in the pursuit of wellness for their families, successfully addressing issues such as allergies, eczema, metabolism and anxiety, just to name a few. It has been an honor to help families reduce their health care expenses, feel more confident in their decisions and see major improvements in their family members’ wellbeing.

I mean it when I say that essential oils are not a cure all, and as someone who has undergone several surgeries, takes Synthroid daily and is about to have C-section number two, I’m just as thankful for Western Medicine as the next person. This is, in fact, one of the things I like best about essential oils – they are a wonderful companion to the incredible strides the medical world has made, and they help us retain a little more personal ability when it comes to caring for our families. When Gabe is getting a tooth, I won’t have to agonize over whether or not Orajel is going to numb his throat, because I know a little swipe of lavender will help him. If fever sets in, I don’t have to debate whether or not to use Tylenol, because Peppermint will assist both the fever and the infection.

This isn’t a revolutionary war cry to take back our health care from the big bad medical world, it’s a cheer of support and a cadre of resources for individuals, parents and families who want to understand and address their bodies’ needs simply, confidently and cost-effectively.

If this is something that sounds interesting to you, then you’re in the right place at the right time!

doTERRA Share the Gift July is an exciting month to get started with doTERRA Essential Oils, with an offer to save even more money than the already reduced wholesale membership offers. By enrolling as a wholesale member (similar to a Sam’s or Costco membership – no selling obligation and you only have to make one purchase a year to retain your membership) with a 100PV (roughly $100) order, you will receive 50PV to be used on a future order. In short, spend $100 to get $50 in free products!

As my nerd-dom has probably indicated, I would love to answer questions for anyone who has them. I am continually impressed by the range of health and wellness issues (not to mention skin and body care, cleaning, cooking and more) that oils are equipped to address, so no question is too strange or specific. Contact me through a blog comment, Facebook, Twitter or email. To browse products and learn more about oils, click here. And don’t worry, oils have not taken my blog hostage. They’re simply a facet of my life that I enjoy and find worthy of sharing, so, similar to other topics I write about, that is the heart behind today’s post.
