Hello and welcome!
I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Emily, a natural momma obsessed with holistic natural wellness. I am an essential oil educator, entrepreneur, workout addict, trail runner, and foodie. I am passionate about empowering others and bringing health, confidence, and prosperity to families across the globe, through the use of essential oils and healthy living.
My own natural wellness journey dates back to using lavender in our kitchen while growing up, but it wasn’t until I became a mom that I really started to evaluate everything in our home. I became much more aware of the things that we were putting in, on and around our bodies. I was staring into the face of my darling little angel (now a 4 year old), wanting to keep him as perfect and unspoiled as possible.
I was terrified with what I was reading about certain “normal” options for taking care of him – everything from the awful chemicals they put in baby shampoo and lotions, to the artificial dyes, flavorings, and sweeteners they put in baby medication (not to mention the metal shards they found in a recent batch of baby painkillers.) When he started teething, I knew I wanted a more natural option. I tried several different essential oil brands, but none of them worked.
And that’s our fear right? I think most people want natural health solutions, but most of the time they just don’t deliver. Did you know that there is no regulation on the essential oil industry? The bottle can say whatever it wants. That’s why the first couple brands I tried did not live up to their claims.
It has been such a journey for me to find natural options that actually WORK, and if I can save other busy moms (and dads!) the time, energy, and expense of trying all the options, I want to help! I’ve done the research for you, and can’t wait to share.
The oils I use are completely unlike any other oils on the market. They start by getting the best plant, grown in it’s natural habitat, by growers all around the world who are so committed to partnering with us to give us the best possible product. Obviously we take the best care of them as well, making a huge impact in impoverished countries. Then we have multiple third-party testing, including after distillation, and after they are bottled. If it any point in this process there is a single chemical constituent out of place, a single speck of pesticide or foreign contaminant present, the entire batch gets tossed. They are beyond organic, and are certified to be pure of synthetic fillers, foreign contaminants, and pesticides. They have worked for us every time we use them correctly and consistently (education matters!)
If you are a mama looking for natural health solutions, I know that you want the very best for your family. I would love to chat and answer your oil questions. There’ve been such a blessing in our home, and I want to see every home have the same success!
What exactly ARE essential oils?
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, flowers, bark, rind and leaves of plants, extracted and distilled for health benefits! They are extremely potent – 50-70 times more powerful than herbs. In fact, ONE drop of certified pure peppermint essential oil is the equivalent of 28 cups of peppermint tea! Because they are so concentrated and powerful, you can imagine that…
Not all oils or companies are created equal!
Always choose essential oils that are certified pure by 3rd party testers, sourced from their natural habitat around the world (this ensures the proper chemical constituents and structure so that the essential oils actually do what they are supposed to!), and that are verified to be pure, free of fillers, pesticides, and foreign contaminants. There are many companies who do their own testing and have claims on their bottles that they are 100% pure, but then have warnings on the bottle to not even apply topically. This should be a big red flag. The oils I use are safe, and pure enough to be taken internally (they even have nutrition facts on the label). There is no one company that regulates the essential oil industry. If you want to know what I trust to care for myself and my family, contact me. I’d love to save you the time, money, and possible toxicity, of purchasing essential oils that claim to be something they are not. The oils I bought before I knew any better actually ended up in the TRASH, because they didn’t work and I couldn’t trust that what they label said was true.
