MY DOTERRA JOURNEY
7 years ago, my sister shared an essential oil experience she had using doTERRA Lavender essential oil on her 4 year old sons dry, irritated, flaky skin. We had grown up using traditional medicine for all our aliments. As you probably would guess, I was a bit shocked when she told me she had turned to natural remedies after her sons treatment plan included burning his eczema patches on his skin. Her results were amazing and pretty soon my mom and dad started experimenting with doTERRA essential oils. My dad had been struggling with residual pain in his legs due to blood clots. They soon began to find great support using these gifts from the earth. Needless to say, I was almost the last family member on board, but once we joined we have never turned back.
When I first started using essential oils I was having a hard time sleeping through the night and I was experiencing periods throughout the day where I would lose my vision. After many doctors appointments, I was told I had malaise, which basically means I don't feel well. I had asked if I was having mini strokes because I have a blood clotting disorder but my doctor assured me I wasn't because I was too young. Well a few months later I was in the hospital because I had an acute stroke.
As I laid in the ICU, thankful I had made it to the hospital in time to have a clot buster administered, I realized I needed to take control of my health. I spoke with my neurologist and we set up a plan using essential oils to help keep my blood a health consistency.
Since then, I have LOVED learning and even more then learning, I have LOVED making meaningful connections as we have helped bring support, love, hope and oils to people just like you!
