Optimist at heart. Farmer’s wife. Homeschooling mom to four. Wellness Educator and dōTERRA Leader.
DōTERRA has had a huge impact on my family and our quality of life. I want you to experience this positive impact, too. Here’s my story.
I grew up on a hobby farm in a small town–riding horses and playing volleyball and games with my brothers. I met my husband at 19 and we married and started our dairy farming lives together. I always dreamed of being a veterinarian, and now I had my chance to learn and work with our own animals.
We have four children and enjoy our days being outdoors, taking care of our pets, camping at our pond, ATV riding, hunting, and hosting events at the farm.
We focused on eating healthy and staying active, doing our yearly check ups with our general physician.
When someone would get sick…
We waited to see what it turned into and then we ran to the doctor. We used a ton of over-the-counter products. The kids missed school and oftentimes we, as parents, felt worn out.
When I couldn’t sleep…
I would lie awake. This happened to me a lot, as I was always thinking about what I had to get done the next day. This then turned into feeling cranky and exhausted.
In 2013, I was reintroduced to the idea of using essential oils.
My son was struggling with deep sadness and digestive concerns. A friend shared an oil sample with me, Digestzen. He started using it daily on his belly and loved it. We got a starter kit and started figuring out how to use them.
Learning about oils was a slow process at first, as I didn’t know where to go for the information.
I would look online on the dōTERRA site. Then, I found an uplines Facebook page and started joining their online classes. The testimonials encouraged me to try more things. Then our upline came to our area and started teaching classes and was able to help me focus on what was most important for our family.
Over the years, we found so many amazing dōTERRA products that helped with almost everything in our home.
We diffuse dōTERRA’s On Guard essential oil blend during the fall and winter months. It has been almost 6 years since I’ve had to take one of our children in for those common winter “walk-in” visits. Yes, they still feel ill at times, but we know what to use and they are well so much faster.
With my sleep, I now take dōTERRA Serenity Complex gel caps and diffuse the dōTERRA Balance essential oil blend. I fall asleep fast and wake up so much more rested. It’s amazing what a good night’s sleep can do.
I also learned about the Aromatouch Technique, and fell in love with how I could use this with my kids and husband to bring homeostasis (balance) to their bodies.
It was at this point, I decided I wanted to do dōTERRA as a business.
I started seeing the checks coming in and it felt so natural. My goal was always to see how many people I could help and to share what I’d learned along the way.
It’s important to me to share good resources and education, because the internet is full of conflicting information. Quality, sourcing, testing, clinical studies all play a role when using essential oils. Each person is different, too, as far as what essential oils will work for you. Over the years, we’ve compiled lots of education and resources for our team.
As a leader, I also offer customized plans because there is so much to choose from. Take one tour through doTERRA.com and you will feel overwhelmed. Having someone listen to your health goals and then suggest what might be best for you. Easy, right?!
