IMG_6918-3133127719-OWhen our first son was born in 2006 we were thrilled! We had already been blessed with a beautiful daughter and we were so excited for a son. I didn’t realize that each child not only comes with their own personality but their own individual immune systems as well. My first child was always healthy and vibrant. As my son began to grow we noticed he seemed to catch everything that was floating around. Not only would he catch everything but it would linger for weeks. It seemed like one sickness just rolled into another, then another, repeated for the first four years of his life. I had a friend recommend I look into essential oils to help boost his immune system. I was very leery to say the least but also very aware that nothing else was helping him.

As I started looking into essentials oils I also became very aware of ingredients in the food we were eating and the medications we had in our home. I started questioning what I had always turned to for common illnesses. We moved from living the traditional way to a more natural way fairly quickly. Once you understand what to look for and why you need to make changes, it doesn’t take a lot of time before you can’t ingest one more candy bar or pop one more pill. I won’t say it was always easy because there were days (and still are) that I just want to ignore the labels and eat whatever I want. The downside (or upside depending on the way you look at it) is that whenever I eat junk now, that’s how I feel…like junk.

Living more naturally has become a way of life for us. We love to drink green smoothies, eat raw food, prepare home cooked meals, make our own personal care products, grow our own garden, and care for the health of our family as naturally as possible. We don’t have it all perfected but we do strive to continue to educate ourselves and others. It has been a fun journey so far and we’re happy you’ve joined us. Wherever you are on your journey to a healthier lifestyle we hope you’ll find some good information here!

To your health!
