My Journey To Essential Oils Started For The Dogs

I don’t have one of those dramatic wellness journies to tell you about. But we all have a journey unique to each of us… and it matters.

A few years ago, I set out on an educational journey to learn more about helping support dogs in my training business with emotional issues. We tend to think about dogs who are fearful or showing signs of nervousness or anxiousness when their owners leave the house as things we can comfort with essential oils. But that proved to be the tip of the iceberg.

I attended a class taught by a new Young Living Member. All I remember was hearing about the plague and thinking that it didn’t apply to me, and the oils seemed expensive. So I didn’t buy anything. My mother thought they smelled good, and like a good aunt, she felt obligated to buy 1 bottle of oil.

It wasn’t until we had a dog with a real crisis that I started to dig a little deeper into possibilities. I was led back to Young Living time and time again for blends, supplements, and educators about the impact of our environment, nutrition, and lifestyles that played havoc on our health and well-being.

I sought out classes to help my clients. Never planning to be a salesperson. But it all changed for me the more I learned, the more results I saw in the dogs and myself. Visit my blog to learn more about what I learned…
