It hit me like a lightning bolt. A gripping fear that something bad was about to happen. It feels so real in the moment. It’s terrifying. When anxious thoughts strike sometimes I have a trigger, and other times I don’t. This time I did, and I knew it. I had read a Facebook post from a friend about keeping her kids home from school because there had been another threat against the school. And it gripped me.

And immediately, I felt like that post was a warning to our family. “What if this is a warning that I should keep my child home from school this week?” “What if this is a foreshadowing of what’s to come for our family?” Wave after wave of anxious thoughts.

When I was growing up, my whole family did not have food allergies so it was barely a blip on the radar.
I’ve had more than one person look at me weird and say “Oh, so you’re one of those people who don’t believe in doctors and medicine.” Or ask me “So you believe essential oils heal everything?” I either experience amusement or irritation in that moment. Because in that moment it shows that they’ve not really tried to get to know me. Because nothing could be further from the truth. Using essential oils to support your system is amazing, but they are not everything.
I do believe in natural wellness and I love essential oils. I have been known to try some very natural methods to help my family with immune support and wellness. But in absolutely no circumstance does that mean I am anti-doctor or anti-medicine. Doctors and medicine are amazing. I love doctors – traditional and natural-focused doctors. And I love medicine – traditional and natural.
It was about 6 years ago that I really began my research into the best essential oils. And it’s been about 8 years since my first exposure to them. I thought it might be nice to share a little about my journey in this oily world, as I suspect some of you may be able to relate. So this is the story of my journey to Young Living.
