Founder of Striking Emerald, my passion is empowering people with tools in their own home, that ‘just make sense’ and are simple, pure, honest, real... because I didn’t know.
Before being introduced to doTERRA, I was a workaholic in marketing and advertising and I loved my job. However, I had chronic fatigue (for 18 years), migraines, sciatica, back ache, mild depression, anxiety, mouth ulcers, colds... and then abscesses; 7 surgeries (most were emergency) in 18 months... medication on medication but I wasn’t getting ANY better.
Unfortunately I was told it was just something I’d have to live with. But that was just it - I couldn’t live. The last two abscesses were 8 weeks apart – and that’s when I realised... I couldn’t work, have a family - all my plans... stopped. I was broken, everything I knew had gone, everything I relied upon had gone. I felt hopeless.
That’s when I decided to take my life into my own hands and look for alternative ways to help my body heal itself; firstly through using food as medicine, then by discovering tools to help the mind, body and soul – all things that play a significant role for overall health.
A year later I was introduced to doTERRA essential oils by my beautiful sister-in-law...
Even though I’d used alternative therapies before, I had no idea what an essential oil was apart from being a nice smell!
But then I went to her class and my life changed again... I learnt SO much - it was like a completely different world that I didn’t know existed!
I started using doTERRA essential oils for everyday ailments that I suffered with - and they WORKED! So I decided to try the Lifelong Vitality supplements to see if they would help with brain fog and severe lack of energy - something I’d suffered with for 18 years... three weeks later - it was like night and day.
My life and my family’s life has changed in every way since, not just because of the incredible healing power of the oils but also because of this beautiful community, the friendships and partnerships, that I could no longer imagine being without...
