Essential oils are a big buzzword right now. It seems that every store we go into has a special “health” section of oils and that everyone’s an expert.
As a trusted Nutritionist, I have your best interests at heart. I’m fully trained in how and why essential oils work and will not steer you wrong because of something I read in a magazine or read on Facebook. My recommendations are based on science and fact.
When I chose essential oils to work with in my practice, it was because I was seeing results, often immediately and without the side effects that synthetic substances can have. I was hooked. My clients were using 2 drops of a plant substance, getting results, reducing discomforts, reducing stress, and staying on their nutrition plan long enough for lasting change to take place. That’s a WIN.
My own EO journey began with a bottle of Vetiver. For twenty years, I had wrestled the “sleep demon” and lost. I would sleep 2-3 hours a night, tossing and turning and waiting for morning to come. I was perpetually drained. The first night that I used Vetiver oil (sourced in Haiti) I slept for 6.5 hours and I’ve NEVER gone back to my old sleepless self. A drop on the bottom of my feet at night is all that I need to send me into dreamland.
The key with essential oils is to find a product that is of the highest quality and purchase from someone that you trust.
Look for a company who values educating it’s customers and a brand that does not use chemicals, pesticides, or fillers and is third party tested. Look for a leading company in the field. The company that I trust is on the Forbes top 10 list of companies to work for and is the number one essential oils company in the world. It’s important that essential oils are ethically sourced and are of a medicinal quality.
For many people, essential oils have changed the way that they are able to function in the world. They may have suffered for years with seasonal allergies, or digestive issues, headaches, insomnia, or any number of “minor” health issues only to discover essential oils that completely alleviate their discomfort. When combined with proper nutrition, they truly have a new lease on life.
Maybe you have a hyperactive child who you would do ANYTHING to help him concentrate in school or to make friends. Essential oils work for this too.

In my first trimester, I suffered debilitating morning sickness. Nothing helped. I had to spend DAYS in bed because just starting to move around would cause me to be sick. I decided to try Zengest. I rubbed 3 drops on my belly, with carrier oil. Within 10 minutes, I was up and tidying the house! This oil truly got me through my pregnancy.
My little one who is 18 months was in a great amount of pain with her bowels not moving regularly. I mixed Zengest with a carrier oil and within 10 minutes she had a bowel movement and was pain free!
I use Onguard oil on my hands and feet before bed every night. I also take one Onguard + daily because I HATE being sick. And guess what? I haven't had so much as a cold, flu, or even sniffles for two years. One day I did feel achy and just 'blah'. I doubled the dose of Onguard + and the next day I felt great. My hubby used to get every bug known to man. If a friend had it, he got it. He recently went on a business trip with four other guys. When he left, he had that 'I'm coming down with something' feeling. I put Oregano and Onguard on his feet, sent some with him, and he reported the next day that although every other guy on the trip was SICK, he felt great.
