my essential oils story

Thanks for being here! I’m so excited to share with you how my Oily journey began.

I was introduced to  Geranium Essential Oil in 2013. At the time my life was a struggle, due to midlife (bless her!), empty nesters (bless them!), confusion, unaddressed Trauma. It is  interesting that painting and essential oils came to me at about the same time. Both have had an immensely positive impact on my mental health and general well-being.

At times it was difficult to access therapeutic grade Essential Oils locally and I would pound the pavement trying to source them. It was in these moments I discovered that not all essential oils are the same and nor could they all offer me the support that I needed.

In March 2015 I met doTERRA Essential Oils and haven’t looked back.  doTERRA oils pack a powerful punch due to the pure, therapeutic grade of oil they produce. If you’d like to know more about their purity, click here to learn more about Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade

My favourites for daily use are Geranium (the oil of Love & Trust), Frankincense (the oil of Truth), Myrrh (the oil of Mother Earth), Bergamot (the oil of Self Acceptance) and Lime (the oil of Zest for Life). I use my oils both topically (on my skin with a carrier oil) and aromatically (in a diffuser, breathing in straight from the bottle, or I might rub some oil into the palms of my hands and take a big deep breath).

Today, I paint as often as possible and I diffuse essential oils as a part of my painting process.

If you’d like to know about how to access pure Oils from doTERRA, please contact me via email, I’d love to hear from you.
