Essential Oils: My Story

You’ve seen me talk about these before and maybe you’re like okay Marissa.. enough already! Or maybe you’re like yasss girl, keep sharing – I’m into it!

Either way, hear me out for a second.. or a few.

I starting using oils about 4 years ago when I had Strep Throat 4 times in the span of 2 months. My body was worn out, worn down, and my immune system was completely shot. I decided to look into some natural alternatives since my body wouldn’t “take” to the antibiotics anymore. I starting supporting my body with a few oils a friend gave me, also got lavender, and just barely dipped my toes into things then. I loved the lavender for sleep and would put it on my temples since it knocked me right out.

Eventually I ran out of my one bottle and it was on my ‘to do list’ to order more, but i just never did. Then one day I was scrolling through Facebook and a girlfriend of mine from college (@blondebrittney) shared something about essential oils that caught my eye.

Long story short, I just ordered the young living starter kit so I could restock on the few I ran out of and try this whole oils thing out. I was mainly looking for some sleep support and relief, and something to make my home smell good instead of the tons of candles I was using. I figured try them, why the heck not- it worth a shot right?!

Within a day it was evident these little bottles were changing things. I noticed changes in my sleeping patterns within just 2 nights of diffusing, and my ability to focus during working at home drastically increased. Could I have found an answer or a solution? Most definitely possibly yes.

Naturally as a blogger, I share things. So when something works or I like it, I talk about. I mean if these were working for me why couldn’t they work for someone else right?! So that’s what I did – just started talking and sharing, and I realized so many people struggle with the same thing:

  • sleep/fatigue
  • headaches
  • inability to focus
  • immune deficiencies
  • and so many more things.

I wanted to share with people the relief and support that I got from essential oils because it was life changing.

When I ordered the starter kit (11 most common oils + diffuser) I didn’t realize how much it would impact me. It sounds kind of stupid, yes I know, but really – I didn’t! I thought I was just getting something that would make the air smell nice and help me fall asleep faster. And while it did those things, boy did it do so much more!
