Essential oils are a great way to integrate a stronger healing connection to the earth to support yourself, others around you, and your surroundings. The oils combine my love of the earth, plants and nature along with my passion for energy medicine, food, and natural health. As a trained herbalist, I appreciate that there are all different ways for people to connect to the earth. Some people are more interested in getting their hands dirty gardening; others enjoy using their home-grown plants. Some people want to do that but don’t have the time or don’t make the time. My passion is in helping people find a way to use natural alternatives in their homes and share them with their families and friends. Each individual has her/his own path for manifesting what she/he needs. No judgment.
What Are Essential Oils?
Do you have an experience smelling something that has a memory attached to it? I remember smelling geranium from the plants outside my childhood home. I can smell a rose a mile away. When I drink my favorite Tulsi Rose Tea, I feel like it is drinking a cup of love. Therapeutic scents and our thoughts about them, can evoke a stirring within us on many levels, physical, mental or emotional.
Essential oils are the “life blood” essence or liquid extracted from parts of plants, bark, flowers, trees, roots and bushes. They contain a variety of constituents and are vital fluids that come from the plants. Plants and their oils carry a vibrational signature, an energy, that when extracted and distilled properly and used with integrity, can cross the blood brain barrier and support systems of the body.
How Do I Use Them?
Essential oils are used in our home in a variety of ways, each offering up fun and usefulness. We diffuse oils to help support a clean environment. Use oils to clean our home as a natural alternative to toxic chemicals. We also use them to support our immune and nervous systems. By diffusing the oils and using small, diluted amounts, the oils support other healthy tools in our home. Oils support our family and others to “green up and clean up.”
Why Young Living® Essential Oils?
Having been in private practice for nearly 18 years, I have always been passionate about sharing what I learn on my own journey, whether it is about clean food sources, healthier alternatives to sugar, food as medicine, pure supplements or more. I am particular about what I recommend. For this reason, I have always researched my recommendations thoroughly to ensure I share good quality information and provide healthy choices for my family and loved ones.
Young Living® provides organic oils with a Seed to Seal® process. They are the only essential oil company that owns their own farms. They don’t use pesticides or herbicides and instead, handpick their own weeds and use their oils for keeping pests away.
All essential oils are not created equally. Many found in the grocery stores contain chemical fillers and different distillation processes that do not result in a pure product. In addition to the way the plant is processed, it is also important to know how it is grown, the quality, and where it comes from.

“I attended a class that Wendy ran this past spring and loved her passion for and knowledge of the essential oils. I was so drawn to the products and bought several different oils at the beginning of summer. I made an outdoor spray with them that was wonderful smelling and so effective. One of the oils saved and nourished my skin after bug bites – I applied a drop of the oil, and the sting and itch of the bite went away completely! It is the first summer that I can remember that I don’t have scabs and scars on my body from bug bites. I am so impressed with the oils that I am buying more! Wendy has been so helpful and available as I make my selections, and I look forward to learning so much more from her!”
“Wendy invited me to my first essential oils meeting last fall. I had never used oils before and Wendy was extremely knowledgeable about the oils, their uses, and their benefits. I have since been to several other classes with Wendy and have found her to be enlightening and energetic. She has also been helpful on a personal level with specific health issues and also how to incorporate essential oils for daily use. I have enjoyed working with her and enjoy her positive attitude towards life.”
“I went to an essential oil evening that Wendy hosted and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was my first foray into this land of scent. Wendy was generous with her knowledge and in sharing her collection. She made thieves popcorn which was to die for. She also let me try her thieves toothpaste which has become an absolute staple in my life as have become Thieves cough drops. The evening was a ton of fun and Wendy made me want to learn more about this amazing world that she navigates with grace and ease. I look forward to learning more from her.”
