Everywhere you turn it seems someone is living there dream working from home.

When I quit my job at an Environmental firm I decided to pursue freelance writing from home.  And when I’m consistent I do in fact make money.

Being consistent is the hard part while raising a family and running our mini farm.

I decided to start selling essential oils as a way to make a little extra income on the side.  It’s always nice to sell something you believe in.

A few months back I read the book Dreamland and it really opened my eyes to the harmful, addictive effects of modern day medicine.  Having suffered from depression and anxiety I tried the prescription medication route and found myself quickly addicted and really struggled with getting off my antidepressant.

The withdrawals were unbearable, the headaches were like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.  That was a year ago.  (I’m not suggesting you stop cold turkey there was a method to weaning off my prescription)

Fast forward to a year later, and I’ve been using oils to combat common ailments.

I still wake up depressed some days, I still have moments of pure anxiety, but rather that reaching for a little pill from the doctor I use a few different methods to help control my own struggles.  A few drops of tranquil to combat anxiety, a blend of tangerine and peppermint to wake me up and get my days started.  My depression always strikes in the morning.  A copaiba sleep rub that will knock out the worst sleep offenders and I will truly vouch for its abilities after 5 years of my oldest screaming 5-10 times in the middle of the night he is finally sleeping and wakes a whole new person.

I was diagnosed 11 years ago with a debilitating bladder disease, interstitial cystitis that sends my body into panic mode.  It’s painful, it’s annoying, and it can cause my depression to spiral out of control if I let it.

I use diet and Young Living essential oils in all aspects of my life.

If you are tired of taking a prescribed pill, tired of just sort of floating through life wondering when you will feel better.  Maybe you should give essential oils a try.  There is healing in essential oils.

There is oil in the house of the wise. Proverbs 21:20

If you are ready to take a leap of faith and try out some oil potions rather than more prescribed poison from the pharmaceutical industry contact me and we can chat about what is ailing you and what oils you may find beneficial to your lifestyle.

Or you can check out all that Young Living has to offer here

For the remainder of August when you sign up with me as a Young Living Distributor you receive a potion shelf for FREE.  The shelf is handcrafted by me on my little farm and sold locally and in my Etsy shop.   All you need to do is follow the link above sign up as a distributor, send me an email with your confirmation and I will ship off your customized essential oil shelf.  (They do take about 1-2 weeks for delivery)

The basic starter kit provides you with a good quantity of essential oils as well as two diffusers to get you started.  I think its time we all started taking a stand against big pharmaceutical companies and try to heal in a more natural way.
