living a healthy, all-natural lifestyle fueled by essential oils
Hi, I'm Lyndsey.
My wellness journey began once I graduated college. Growing up a dancer, cheerleader and all around busy bee, once I stared working full time I found myself living a much more sedentary life than I ever had. Missing movement, exercise and yoga became my obsessions, but they were only a piece to the puzzle. Food and nutrition came next and I became newly obsessed about the quality of what I was eating. Organic, non-GMO, farm-to-table and local became some of my favorite words. Nutrition and movement play huge roles in my lifestyle and my relationship with them is always evolving and changing.
Oils entered the picture next in 2015, when I was searching for a solution to the endless research I was doing to find the best quality products for things like cleaning, hair/skin care, makeup and supplements. Through a series of many rabbit holes I started to learn about the toxicity that I was exposed to every day and so the research began. I was experiencing a multitude of issues (skin irritation, headaches, digestion problems, brain fog, fatigue, sleeping issues) all relating to the toxic products that were "normal" to use. I mean doesn't target care about my health?
Once I realized I was basically poisoning myself I resolved that I would ditch and switch everything I was using for a cleaner, all-natural alternative. The problem was, this was easier said than done. I would spend hours researching the best and cleanest shampoo, all-purpose cleaner, and mascara, only to go buy the chemical ridden stuff because I hadn't made a decision yet on what to invest in (#investinquality). I was paralyzed by indecision and it wasn't until I realized I could make a lot of these things myself and the universe happened to have me invited to a class on essential oils that I found the light at the end of the tunnel. Once I did my research (are you seeing the pattern here?) I knew Young Living and ALL their products were the answer to my over-analyzer prayers!
I believe so strongly in teaching people to honor their wellness and protect their health; so strongly, that I became a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach in 2017 at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition with the goal of creating a ripple effect in this world. My message: it's so much easier to preserve what you have and build from there than struggle to get it all back. There's an easier way but its a lifestyle you have to choose. So play a strong defense and protect your wellness so that you can live a life blessed with wellness, purpose and abundance.
