My Essentially Crazy Life
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain!
Welcome to My Essentially Crazy Life.
A little bit about me and what got me started on this journey.
My name is Christie. I am a busy mom and wife. We have a bit of a chaotic and an extremely busy life as both my husband and I need to work. As well I homeschool our son.
So why in the world would I add getting started with Young Living on top of all of that? I’ve known about YL for many years, and I even made sure that I always had certain essential oils such as lavender on hand. But what really got me to become a YL member was our son and his health. He was born with a rare condition called Congenital Hypopituitarism which basically is defined at a deficiency of one or more of the hormones produced by the pituitary glands (the brain of our hormones). As well he has a subtype of Autism called Pathological Demand Avoidance or PDA which is anxiety driven. So needlessly to say every day we tend to live in various states of anxiety, generally on the high anxiety side. One of the things that we have found that help him to feel calmer are smells. So of course, we wanted to support that need for sensory input in a non-toxic and healthy way. We want to give him whatever supports that we can to help him be able to cope in the world in which we live. The wonderful thing about essential oils is the wide range of benefits that they provide. There are oils that we use to support our endocrine (hormonal) system, ones to help support those big emotions that can be overwhelming, as well as ones to support and encourage sleep and of course ones that help to support our overall wellness.
