I am a 43 year old mom who co-parents three young ladies, ages 19, 17, and 13. They are the center of my universe! I am remarried to the man of my dreams and we share our home with my daughters, Laura, Gabby, and Molly, our two goldendoodles, and three felines. Our lives are busy, chaotic, and full! With one child in college, one in high school, and one in junior high, juggling two jobs, year-round sports activities, sometimes life can feel overwhelming. Many times that’s where my essential oils come in handy.
Because two out of three of my girls has been diagnosed with a mental health disorder, we work daily at keeping a healthy environment for healing in all ways: the food we eat, the ways in which we speak and react to others, and the products we use in our home. While we certainly aren’t perfect, we are constantly learning and growing and adopting new ideas.
Using essential oils has become a HUGE part of our daily routines. They have allowed us to ditch many toxic products in our home while supporting our emotions, brains, and bodies at the same time. We also believe in the power of Western medicine when needed and necessary. We incorporate essential oils along with psychotherapy and medications and both our mental health practitioner and pediatrician are fully on board with essential oil use and even use them personally.
The bottom line is, life is HARD. We’re all just wandering around trying to live our best lives. Hopefully we learn a thing or two in the process. And hopefully, as we wander, we love hard on each other. After all, we’re all just walking each other home.
