I had always been healthy, outgoing, ambitious, and basically a super type A personality. I followed the money to a successful career in finance.
However, in 2016, I found myself walking from my car to the hospital entrance to pick up my son from another overnight hospitalization. My car was full of sticky notes because my amazing brain had been covered by an inescapable cape of fog. I felt emotionally drained, powerless and anxious. I had become addicted to caffeine just to push myself through the day…I was literally running on Dunkin (and Starbucks chai lattes).
Doctors dismissed me as being an overwhelmed mom so I sought out experts in holistic fields. I mean motherhood does not equal crazy person…does it? I had to find out.
I had heard about the power of essential oils and even purchased a kit from a friend. I started using them directly on myself and my son (probably causing more damage). It seemed like the information was passed playing the game of telephone, a little bit of truth but lots lost along the way. I also had a counter full of oils and no idea how to use them–making me feel more anxious. I was never the DIY mom, and I felt terrible.
I EXPERIENCED HOW BRAIN FOG AND ANXIETY CAN UNDERMINE YOUR HAPPINESS AND SELF-WORTH.
In my quest to find a solution, I met an aromatherapist with years of experience who only created blends that were safely diluted and mixed for specific ailments. She taught me about the difference of 3rdparty testing (to make sure the oil is what they say it is) and first press oils (think about the potency of your first cup of tea vs. 2nd, 3rd) make on the effectiveness of a blend. She explained how the blend recipes you get on Google were different than those tested and studied over years like the diagnosis you get looking at symptoms online compared to the ones you get at a doctor’s office.
After a few months, the fog had cleared for me and my son was breathing better without any prescription medications!
I became obsessed with connecting people to plant power!
After hundreds of positive reviews – I knew helping people feel happy & healthy through plant power was my purpose.
