How it all started for me…
My journey with essential oils + yoga started long ago back in Saint Paul when I was in college for Public Relations and Health Education. I had always been an anxious personality and the combo of Lavender oil from the local health food store + yoga was enough to keep my anxiety in check.
Fast-forward to 2009, in North Carolina when my sweet yoga teacher friend shared with me the glorious Citrus Bliss blend and it was all over! doTERRA oils have changed the way I look at essential oils and I have grown to appreciate their commitment to quality and purity more & more through the last 8 years of using them! (see sourcetoyou.com for more info)
DoTERRA wellness advocate:
Fast-forward again to 2013, when I decided to take start sharing the oils with my family & friends because I saw the positive emotional & physical health benefits just like the ones I found in my yoga practice.

I was also able to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher training when we lived in Hawaii in 2013. I immediately began teaching a mama and babe yoga class and a power yoga adult class that I incorporated essential oils into at the beginning & end of class. I have continued taking yoga courses for baby and kid’s yoga through Holy Yoga + OmSchooled because having 4 little ones…we need a lot of yoga and a lot of oils over here!
Aromatherapist in training:
I am also completing my Aromatherapy Certification through Aromahead. It has taken me quite some time to get through all of the material…Anatomy & Physiology isn’t my expertise but I am trying! Just have some case studies to complete and a research paper…hoping to complete it by the end of 2017! Wish me luck!
So with all of that info above…you may be wondering so what’s all the hype and excitement over essential oils?

First, let’s talk about what are essential oils?
They are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination.
In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
