I hope the most important lesson we’ve learned from the past few years of uncertainty is the age-old saying, “health is wealth” – a lesson I’ve been hearing since I was too young to understand its importance. There are so many ways we normalize unhealthy living; it’s constantly advertised to us how it’s okay to not be okay. Yet, while things like obesity, high blood pressure, severe anxiety, gut imbalance, and sleep issues may be common, they are anything but normal.
Over the past decade, I have dedicated my life to healing from the inside out. At a young age, I realized no one was coming to save me. Most people’s biggest fears were my reality, and I certainly didn’t have a safety net to fall back on. The lessons that brought me to my knees also taught me to stand tall and made me brave enough to scream this from the rooftops—we are in control of our health, our bodies were made to heal, and we were made to thrive.
We can’t put a Band-Aid on a river and expect the water to stop flowing, just as we can’t hide an ache in our bodies and expect our bodies to heal. There’s a reason the river flows and there’s a reason our bodies ache, both are doing what they were designed to do. Just as the earth heals itself after a storm, flood, or fire, our bodies are designed to heal from toxins, pressure, or pain. The ache is a warning, a sign of healing, a sign to slow down, something society looks down upon these days.
Essential Oils for Healing
In my own personal healing journey, I boldly stepped into Eastern medicine, away from the norms of modern society. While sometimes Western medicine is necessary, it is often designed to keep you in the hamster wheel of coming back for more. The system I was used to, the one most of us are used to, was failing me. I needed a new solution in healing, and essential oils became my lifeline.
I dove deep into reading everything I could, meeting people around the world who found solace in plant medicine. From skin issues to ailments and discomfort, from cleaning our homes to gut health, the benefits of the chemical properties of plants through essential oils are never-ending. There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not grateful for the consistent effect of the power of oils – it is through nature itself that we can reclaim our minds, bodies, and souls.
I have helped thousands of men, women, and children guide their way to healthier living. I have made it – and will continue to make it – my life’s purpose to help women find their inner strength to heal themselves and their families through hard work, discipline, and faith: faith in humanity, and faith in ourselves. It was my grandmother, born to immigrants in the great depression, who taught me what may be the most important lesson I’ll ever learn, a woman who lived with so much at times and at times with so little: Health is wealth.
