My journey began years ago with chronic and inoperable neck pain. Then in 2014 I was diagnosed with mercury and lead poisoning. I found a great naturopath who saved my life through naturopathic solutions and I realized then I needed to start to research products that supported all of my body systems. I became a certified yoga instructor (CYT500) and the yoga really helped my neck issues. As a certified Reiki Teacher/Practitioner I was able to help my body heal through daily reiki and meditation.
Being a life-long-learner, researching came easy to me. As I researched articles of natural solutions to wellness concerns, I quickly realized my home was filled with chemicals. I found out women apply over 300 chemicals to our body every day and 80 of these chemicals are applied even before we have breakfast. I started to read labels on shampoos, conditioners, soaps, make-up and was shocked! I went into the laundry room and found even more things like fabric softeners, dryer sheets and leather cleaners. I discovered the plug-in air fresheners I had in every room in the house plus all those candles were toxic!! I kept digging and researched all the shampoos and sprays I was putting on my dogs and horse including their packaged foods and ours. It was an eye opener to say the least. When I searched for the Health and Safety Data on many of the ingredients I found that only about 15 percent of the chemicals used in products and to preserve our food didn’t have any safety data available, even though many were known to cause asthma or endocrine disruptions and even worse health issues to both people and pets.
In 2015 a friend of mine said, “Jan, you need to try this – it is in alignment of what you are doing with your Yoga and Reiki”. I trusted her so I ordered my Premium Starter Kit and started using the products on myself, my dogs, cat and horse. The products were chemical free, steam distilled or cold pressed from pure plants. As an avid gardener who grew her own herbs, I was impressed when I opened the bottle and smelled the oils for the very first time. The purest oils in the world – lemon, lavender, peppermint and so many more that were proclaimed Natural Health Products by Health Canada. And they were safe. Hospitals, clinics and veterinarians world-wide were using them. That in itself says a lot! I kept learning by taking courses on the Chemistry of Oils, Emotional Release with Essential Oils, Healthy Hormones, Oils of Ancient Scriptures, Vita Flex and Raindrop with Essential Oils, and I attended seminars for essential oil usage on animals. I keep learning every day from well researched experts using Young Living essential oils who are professionals in their own right – doctors, pharmacists, veterinarians. When I visited one of the Young Living farms, I made a point of talking to the staff – the folks in the fields. As a farmer’s wife, I knew the questions to ask and I was impressed with the answers. This company really walked the talk. Recently Young Living has partnered with the American Veterinarian Association in the development of an Aromatherapy Course with CEU's (continued educational units) for vet assistants and veterinarians so they may incorporate these safe, natural essential oils into their wellness protocol for their furry patients.
As I started my journey it was easy to see how these amazing little bottles of Young Living Essential Oils could do so much – household cleaning, personal care products like toothpaste, deodorant; oils to relieve symptoms of cold and cough, acne, bruises, burns, cuts and minor skin issues, digestive health, eczema and dermatitis, headache, joint & muscle pain, stress & relaxation and general health maintenance. We could diffuse them, apply them and even cook with them. It was wellness in a drop and the household cleaning products were amazing. My dogs weren’t wheezing, sneezing or scratching and my horse loved the oils! Everyone in the barn would benefit from the aroma of the oils as I gave my horse his regular Equine Raindrop treatment.
The transition to a chemical free home, kennel and barn has had many benefits. Along with regular exercise, meditation and non-GMO food (we eat organic as much as we can), my energy levels and health have gotten me back into the saddle again and I’m riding my horse 3 -4 times a week, dancing and enjoy an active life. And our pets are happier and healthier.
