When I was a little girl, my aunt introduced me to her holistic approach for healthy living. Whenever I was sick, she always had a natural remedy. When I became a mom, I remembered my aunt’s recipes, and sought out to find additional solutions. I soon discovered essential oils and began creating my own natural remedies for everything from the common cold, nasal congestion and earaches, to helping my children get a good night’s sleep. I started sharing these discoveries with friends, and before long I was receiving calls, emails and texts every day from friends who were searching for help, which led me to creating this site.

  • Thanks so much for this website! I use essential oils in my diffuser & knew you could use them in other ways but not to this extent. I’m 51 & disabled so I have health issues I’d love to use them for but I’m also a mother of 4 & grandmother of 13 & definitely want to have more natural remedies for the grandkids & introduce this level of essential oil use to my daughters/daughter’s in law. Your beautiful inside & out & I truly appreciate all your hard work as I know you have your hands full with being a wife, mother, TV star, entrepreneur, charity events etc.
