Hi friends, Janine here! That’s me, the wife and momma in the photo surrounded by the people I love. I’d like to share a little bit about why I’m here, and conversely why you ended up here, so if you’ll pull up a seat and stay for a few minutes I’d like to tell you a story.
See that cute little boy snuggled in close to me? That’s my son, my middle child, sandwiched between two sisters. My pregnancy with him was not an easy one to say the least. I struggled both physically and emotionally and was exhausted beyond measure because as I was growing him in my belly, I was also trying to keep up with my oldest who was barely a toddler at the time. After my son was born, the emotions I had during pregnancy that I chalked up to “pregnancy hormones” didn’t go away like I thought they would. In fact, they got worse… much worse, to the point where I couldn’t take care of myself let alone anyone the children that were depending on me for everything.
Enter: Essential Oils. Now, I grew up in the Midwest. I had NO clue what on earth an essential oil was let alone what one could do, but when I got to the point where I couldn’t take care of myself and traditional methods seemed like simply a bandaid to the hell I was living through, I was willing to try anything.
So, a friend of mine came by with her box of Young Living Essential Oils. She promised me they’d help because she had seen them work for her very best friend who was dealing with the same thing I was, but she wanted to let me see them for myself. I opened up her bottle of lavender, gave it a whiff, and was completely shocked at what I was smelling. Now, I’ve smelled lavender before… lavender candles, lavender baby lotion, lavender Febreze, lavender dish soap… but this didn’t smell like any of those things. This smelled like I’d straight up put my face deep down into a lavender bush and I never wanted to come up for air again! And, not only that, I felt something happen in my body as I breathed in that deep, soothing smell. The muscles in my neck and back started to relax. The tension in my jaw released. I could physically feel the stress slipping out of my body that I’d been carrying around for at least the entire duration of my pregnancy, but probably even longer!
You guys. This stuff is legit. I was a believer right then and there and was convinced there was something special about what was in those cute little bottles. Because of that experience, I ended up purchasing a Premium Starter Kit and have had such dramatic results I haven’t looked back since. Now, our whole family uses essential oils for absolutely everything. They’re not just good for stress and overwhelm, but whole body support. I’m talking tummy issues, getting a better night’s sleep, seasonal stuffiness, supporting hormones and healthy skin, bolstering our immune systems, you name it. We’re doing it, and essential oils are helping us!
I don’t want to be dramatic here, folks. But, these oils changed my life and I do believe you need them in your hands if you don’t already have them. I know they will work for you – they’ve worked for me and my family a thousand times over and have been changing more lives left and right than I can keep up with. These oils gave me me back, and for that I am eternally grateful, and friend, I know you will be, too!
