When I discovered essential oils in the spring of 2015 I was full of questions: How many drops should I use? What’s the best carrier oil? Do I use this oil internally, externally, in the diffuser, or all of the above? I’m sure I made people crazy in my education groups because I didn’t trust myself to try anything without specific instructions.
You see, I’m among the minority of people who actually reads instruction manuals. I don’t just open a box or a bottle and try to figure things out on my own, I make sure I know what I’m doing before I begin. (My parents used to invite me over when they bought a new gadget so I could read the manual and tell them how to use it. True story.)
I was so afraid of doing oils “wrong” that it almost kept me from doing them at all. If there’s one thing I can guarantee, oils won’t help you if you don’t open the bottles.
If you’re a fellow reader of instruction manuals and would love one for essential oils, I’ve got good news! Today my new book My Essential Oil Companion releases into the world. Pair it with It All Began in a Garden and you’ve got more tips, tricks, DIYs, recipes, and testimonials than you can shake a stick at!

I was reading your story on (in)courage then I read more about you and found out your are in Young Living group as well. I have had my oils for 3 years now. I enjoy using them. Still have some I don’t like the aroma of but I do figure what to diffuse it with and how to use it. Even though I don’t have many people understanding what I do or that the essential oils are better than they think they are…as in how good they can help and nice household items as well. I just keep doing the best I can daily and weekly to share my business and share my WHY! I am a photographer as well, I have Canon cameras. I live in Oregon. Have a good weekend!
