I know many of you who are new to my site are wondering why I’m starting to talk about essential oils over here in my little corner of the internet. I’d be honored to explain it to you. At the beginning of 2014 I started having digestive issues for the first time in my life. I went to numerous doctors, had invasive tests and had them tell me that I’d just “have to eat more fiber and take Miralax for the rest of your life.”

I wasn’t willing to accept this as my fate and started learning more about food, essential oils and supplements. I was using the oils on my family with great results, one example being to help support my son’s respiratory system, which he has had trouble with since he was born. We were having wonderful success and I learned after doing a Whole 30 elimination diet that my digestive issues were caused by gluten.

When I started using essential oils, I told my friend that I’d never “sell” them because I already had this jewelry business that was successful and taking up most of my time. I quickly learned never to say never, because God was stirring in my heart that He allowed me to go through these challenges so that I’d share what I was learning about natural living with others. There are so many products that we are putting in and on our bodies that are making us sick.

So in summer of 2014 I started Natural Living Real Life. It grew very quickly and I haven’t looked back since. There is such purpose in sharing wellness with others and I’m loving every second of it. I already put my Natural Living Real Life business cards in every order, so sharing things here on my website seemed like the next natural step in helping everyone I encounter learn more about keeping their body well.

next… what are essential oils?
