my essential oil story
As a teenager I loved essential oils. I think I constantly had a little round frosted bottle in my pocket, from That Shop. I thought I knew essential oils. I borrowed aromatherapy books from the library. I poured over essential oils in health food shop, and begged my mum for all the oils and al the oil books about essential oils and aromatherapy.
I'm not sure how I didn't burn the house down, a little too often I'd get home from my part time pub job, walk into my bed room and find the oil burner aglow and another burned ring on my dressing table 😱 Fortunately we no longer burn oils. More about that here.
But then I didn't use them for every thing, and I didn't read all I could about essential oils. Other that lavender for the bed sheets, and eucalypts and tea tree for cleaning.
The good news is, some twenty years later I found my way back to essential oils. And the essential oils are like no essential oils I'd ever experienced in the past. The oils I love, use and recommend today are the most pristine, beautiful oils I've ever experienced.
This time my desire for essential oils was all about managing our health and wellness. (my depression and anxiety, my daughter's anxiety and the Huz' Crohns disease). A MASSIVE bonus in using essential oils for health and wellness we have reduced the chemical shit storm in our home! I find another alternative for chemical, toxic nasties each and every day! We've worked hard over the past few years to eat good, real, whole food. All that hard work and then use harsh chemicals to "clean" our home was crazy. Cleaning your home with nature derived essential oils, is not only good for everybody - they work and the house smells AMAZING!
Late in 2014 I discovered pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. I thought I knew essential oils, but these oils were like no other essential oils I'd ever experienced.
I thought I knew lavender, I thought I didn't like lavender. But I'm a little obsessed with the clean, pristine pure therapeutic grade lavender. Who would have thought!?
Pure essential oils smell cleaner, these oils are fresher and almost lighter. After I purchased my first enrollment kit, I began using all the oils, incorporating them into my day. All of a sudden, I was sleeping better. My daughter was sleeping better. There was less of the before school morning crazy. My daughter and I are now calm and focused in the morning. Yes, I said calm and focused mornings! AND I'm not cracking it at the HUZ, should he suggest a little LOVIN'!
How do I use essential oils?
I use essential oils daily, many times throughout the day. I've often counted 15 - 20 times. Essential oils have become my go to. I no longer pop a paracetamol like I take a breath. I was once that person who popped a paracetamol whenever the thought popped into my mind.
"I'm tired, I need a good sleep, mum always said a paracetamol would help"
"My hip hurts, I might have a paracetamol"
"I've done an eyelash, where is a paracetamol... We now don't even have any on the house!
We have noticed a HUGE shift in our Pharmacy purchases, we were spending up to $200 a fortnight at the pharmacy, paracetamol, antihistamines, prescription medication. Now all we purchases are our prescription meds, for pre-existing chronic illnesses the Huz we now spend less that $70 a month at the Pharmacy.
I didn't realise when I first purchases an essential oil kit we would be improving our health AND SAVING money.
I've written about my mental illness, I'm a depression rock star. I manage a lifelong battle with depression. I've been medicated since 2005. I have what my doctor calls a Major Depressive Disorder, I experience depression two to three weeks out of each month. Usually the depressive episode lifts after two weeks, but sometimes it's with me for months on end.
Early in 2015, after a brutal five month severe episode I realised I needed to do more to manage my illness. For a decade I'd relied on antidepressants, and for the most part they helped me. But there was a change, I no longer felt well on the medication alone. My dose had increased over the years, and was at a large dose to manage my current state. I wasn't depressed, but I wasn't happy. I felt nothing. I attended the Anzac Day Dawn Service and didn't even shed a tear. For an emotional sook who wears her heart on my sleeve, I was shocked. I knew I had to take better care of myself.
I'm at peace with the reality of antidepressants, I can't survive without medication. To go without medication, could be fatal. But I needed to support my illness better than I was, I needed to dive into some serious self care.
This is what lead me to doTERRA essential oils.
I placed an order for a full kit of Essential Oils. I dived in and started learning how I could use essential oils in our home and for our overall wellness. I was excited to replace chemical laden cleaning products. oh I know, that may seem sad, but I tell you I was so excited!
I even use essential oils to create hair creams and face oils. I create all sorts of concoctions in my thermie, like a mad woman!
Before essential oils, we were a $200 a fortnight at the Pharmacy family. $200. As in TWO FREAKIN HUNDRED DOLLARS. I often reflect on the first order I placed for Essential Oils, it was under $200. I hesitated in making that purchase.
I knew I needed to support my health more than I was. But it was a significant purchase for our family budget.
It was a few bottles of oil, I had a hard time convincing myself that it would be worth it. But I needed to convince the Huz.
That was easier than I anticipated. I'd been so unwell for so long he was willing to try anything. So we hit go and processed our first doTERRA order.
And that one decision has changed our lives are forever. I don't think either of us realised just how much that purchase was going to impact on our lives.
We now spend about $70 a month at the Pharmacy. We spend less at the supermarket, as we aren't buying fabric softener. We're not buying expensive "cleaning" chemicals, as I've replaced many of them for an essential oil diy number.
I’m always seeking a better way, a healthier more mindful way to live. I'm always looking to inject more self-care into my life. Using essential oils in your home is the most magnificent way to commit to self care.
Not only are you taking great care of yourself, your family will benefit from a cleaner, less toxic way of living. There is so much to gain in using essential oils, the support oils offer in health and wellbeing is beautiful and reassuring.
I love sharing my love of essential oils, we have gained so much as a family, and I know essential oils will be a beautiful addition to your home too. I've blogged how you can get started with essential oils, click to read it.

Create Your Very Own Wellness Business
You are probably wondering if you could become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, and I'm here to tell you, Yes. You absolutely can.
When I started this blog, to share how I live with clinical depression, I hoped I could generate an income from it. But to be honest, I made a little money, but I never felt completely comfortable with many of the options I explored.
I love shopping, I'm a brilliant online shopper, I have a great eye for design and I love interiors and home accessories. Sharing that was so fun! But I have a "mania" slant to my illness, and in times of soaring highs, I'd go on crazed spending sprees. Often spending money we didn't have. Writing about and sharing all the things, adding clutter to my home was not good for me. A more simple life, with less but so much more is what I crave.
Sharing essential oils, something that can help anyone, in what ever ailment they have - or simply cleaning their home, and replacing chemical laden beauty products with natural, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils is really helpful to anyone and everyone.
And how I use them in the home, I'm so excited that I can care for my family, ridding us from of the chemicle shit storm that life subjects us to is always exciting!
Since 2011 I've been making small changes to my life to give me a little more health and a whole lot more happy. While essential oils have always played a role in my life, I didn't ever feel the benefit of essential oils. They just smelt good, or so I thought.
You see there is no regulatory body to monitor the sale or quality of essential oils. Anyone can label anything as essential oil. That's why doTerra essential oils are so different, and why people experience such powerful benefits from the oils.
While I love sharing doTerra oils with people, I'm especially looking forward to welcoming some lovely folk to my team. Not only will doTerra products help you and your family to thrive, you can earn money doing something you feel truly passionate about.
I don't ever sell, I share my story. How I manage my depression and anxiety. It's all about a story, your story. You can't ever get your story wrong, it's yours.
If you're nervous about sales, let me put your mind at rest. As a doTerra Wellness Advocate your main role is to share the oils. Just as you will probably share the your experiences with family and friends, you will find you are sharing them with everyone you come into contact with.
It's actually hard NOT to share the oils. Once they become part of your families every day, and you see how much they will add to your life you'll be doTERRA-ing up a storm! That's the thing, you wont ever sell the oils, you'll share them. The oils sell themselves. There is no hard sell.
