Pleased to meet you. It's not an accident that you landed on this page. We may have met at the salon, a networking event , you were curious about essential oils & how I infused them into every element of your salon visit as well as my beauty products. Whatever the reason, I'm happy to share how I was introduced to essential oils & how they have changed my life.
How I discovered the power of essential oil
I learned about essential oils when I was about 10 years old. They would sell them at the local flea market, beauty supply stores & one of my friend's Mom would wear it as perfume. I've always had special affinity for natural things like incenses, oils, homemade skin care products & family beauty secrets.
In 2010, I went through a full mind, body & spiritual transformation, shedding 61 pounds. During that time, I focused on a deeper connection with GOD, myself, my passion & my purpose. It was one of the hardest & most pivotal moments of my life. This was a 6-month period of praying & fasting from 6am-6pm, during the early weeks I was led to this scripture:
Genesis 1:11-12 (NIV)
Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
It all started In Gensis, right from the very beginning of the creation story, plants and herbs are mentioned. Plants are not only fundamental for our planet, they are intimately tied to the physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of people since the beginning time.
I was searching for natural ways to clear & calm my mind, fight my food craving & bring me closer to discovering my purpose. This was essential because isolation, limited food intake & a spiritual awaken was an emotional roller-coaster.
