Adventuring into our Young Living Lifestyle…
We started using Young Living Essential Oils in our home in the Summer of 2016. Life has radically changed for us since then! We made a move to South Florida, my son got married, my daughter graduated from college and my youngest daughter graduated from high school! Some pretty major life events – so allow me to catch you up!
I was never really into the whole organic and “clean living” lifestyle. I supported those around me that were, but I definitely loved my cleaning products & store remedies. As a busy mom that worked insanely long, full time hours, I did what I knew to do and I had no idea that there was an easier, healthier way!
Bleach and glass cleaner – two of my favorite go to’s – I sprayed them on everything, in every room of the house and I went through them like water. I used over the counter remedies, quick fixes from the local pharmacy, Walmart or Target. It was what I knew to do. I thought I was too busy to add anything knew, too busy to learn a whole new way of living – I was busy like every other working Mom…work, missions, school, baseball, dance, errands, extended family, doctors appointments, the list goes on and on!
Livin’ the Mom Life…
As a mother I was always on top of my kid’s doctors appointments and they were at the pediatrician like clockwork, every year for their well visits, flue shots and in between for whatever ailed them. Now don’t worry, we haven’t stopped seeing our doctors for regular check-ups. Their knowledge and input will always be welcome in our lives! However, I am happy to say that we have dropped the annual flu shots! There is no need to be filling our bodies full of that stuff! Our immune systems are supported with Young Living oils and supplements and so far I can testify that they are doing a great job!
When our youngest daughter arrived, she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and required open heart surgery at 9 weeks of age. Following the initial surgery were 8 years with 8 additional surgeries. My new pastime became doctor’s waiting rooms and hospitals.
I knew the value of staying well and I did everything I knew to do which, unfortunately at the time, was pumping my family full of over the counter drugs, supplements and as I have since learned, sooooo many chemicals, and just plain old bad stuff.
