In 2015, I got a shocking diagnosis by an OBGYN; I had a very rare ovarian deficiency. I still remember sitting in the doctor’s office looking at my lab results as tears streamed down my face while she told me about all of my “surgical options”. At that moment, I told myself this was NOT my story.
I headed to my nearest natural food store in need of chocolate and something, anything, that could help reverse or at least ease the symptoms of this disorder. I wandered down the essential oil aisle and started to browse through the properties of each oil. I knew of the benefits of the oils for mood, as I already used them in my yoga classes, but I wasn’t aware of the hormonal effects. That’s when I dived deep into the wonderful world of aromatherapy. After reading and researching everything I could about therapeutic oils, I started to handcraft the scents right at my dining room table.
I created blends to help balance my hormones, lower my stress levels, and reduce fatigue and depression that came with my disorder. When I saw the healing benefits that my body, mind, and spirit got from my blends, I knew I had to share them with my tribe. See what the oils can do for you.
