My oils journey started some 3-4 years ago. At that time, all I knew was diffusers and lavender and peppermint. Then I was introduced to this fabulous, giving woman….Stephanie Hoo. And I must say, my life changed for the better. She educated me about oils and their benefits and how to use them to get the maximum effects. She encouraged me to have belief in myself and the power of oils.
One of the simplest and earliest examples that I can remember was the use of oils for my children’s ailments. A simple cough which would have taken me to the doctors, now is treated at home with RC, peppermint, Lavender, frankincense and lemon. May it be with AromaDome or topical applications or even ingesting them, which because it is Young Living oils, i feel safe giving to my children. She suggested to me a life saving elixir which is more popularly know as Ningxia Red for my whole family and i must say, it works wonders for immunity, energy and general health. Skin issues, cuts and scrapes…no problem. Steph taught me there is always an oil for everything. And there are times, when the known usage of that particular oil isn’t what i am using it for, to just listen to my gut feel. If it feels right, it probably is.
What can i say about this fabulous, giving woman? All I can say is, I am blessed to have such a fabulous person in my life.
I have come to know and trust Stephanie as a friend and a highly respected professional. I first met Stephanie at her clinic, The Sanctuary, and was touched by how openly she shared stories and her experiences. Her manner was both genuine and approachable. Since then, Stephanie has been a bridge in my own learning. She has recommended excellent quality courses that have been transformational in my own understanding of wellbeing and balance. Stephanie is passionate about learning, self healing and sharing this wisdom with others and, as such, is a special role model and much-loved leader in the community.
Had I known the transformation my “Essential Oils journey” would make – I would have started using oils a lot sooner! Like all stories go, its starts with a small bottle of oil (in my case Lemon), a little curiosity, some patience and consistency, and… “Ta Da!” You’ve had your first Essential Oils experience that has you eager to try another one. There’s a sense of excitement and amazement when you suddenly realize that your toddler is the only member of the family who does not have flu. She still had a runny nose for 2 days, but that was it. Right then and there I was convinced that Essential Oils really does help support the immune system so that illness is far less severe and recovery is much quicker. Quite a relief when your toddler is starting school for the first time.
I’ve had so many of these experiences with many different oils (peppermint, lavender, Copaiba, wintergreen… etc) but the main point is to have an open mind and experience it for yourself.
Attending the workshops and listening to the webinars has been wonderful in learning about safety, types of applications and getting answers from qualified aromatherapists.
Whether you have a consultation, or have a treatment at the Sanctuary, or attend the very informative workshops, you will be intrigued by the effects of incorporating essential oils into your daily life has. Simple replacements like hand wash, shampoo, facial products, toothpaste, household cleaners, all contribute to replacing the harmful synthetic chemicals with natural and beneficial substances from plants. It’s so easy to make the switch and enjoy more vitality and well-being.
