EM&B# 370: Essential Oils in the Home for Moms


My name is Cori Black, I am currently a work from home ranch wife and mother of 3. I love working as a family and spending time together outdoors. I have a passion for teaching and caring for others. I especially love helping people consider and eliminate the common toxins in their environment that could be affecting both their own body and their family’s! 
As a former Elementary School Teacher I have always had an interest and curiosity in child development. How they grow and how they learn in the process is fascinating to me. Within a few short years of my teaching career, I started to feel like development was changing.
There seemed to be higher needs in a multitude of areas, entering the classroom each year with little explanation as to why. When it came time for me to have my first child I was highly invested in doing everything within my own control to keep that child safe and healthy. I began to slowly explore the ideas of eliminating toxins from my daily life and our home environment. 
It started quite slowly one product at a time. As I used one up I’d try to replace it with a better option. I quickly learned all about “greenwashing” and the lack of regulation on words like natural and pure. I was disgusted at the marketing techniques used to push products that truly weren’t any safer.
I was feeling out of options, very confused and frustrated reading labels. I sped up the process with a big garbage bag as I reached the point of feeling betrayed and decided to do something more drastic! A few months into this process my cousin and her sister introduced me to some products they were using as alternatives for their own families. I was of course skeptical but willing to take a look. 
That’s when the world of Essential Oils came into my life. I previously had no clue what they were or how to use them but was quite intrigued by what I was learning about them. Being a farm girl at heart it just made sense that plants, trees and all things grown in the earth could be trustworthy.(as long as I could find ones that I could trust were as good as they claimed to be.)
My exploration of basic Essential Oils was a complete eye opener for how I could begin to replace items in my home with something safer and much more effective. I discovered Young Living as a company of complete integrity and commitment to only produce the absolute best quality Essential Oils and oil infused products. I felt like I had hit the jackpot.
That was 5 years ago, and today I can’t believe how exploring the option of Essential Oils has changed my family’s life and our overall wellness. I have stepped back from my teaching position to be home with the most important people in my life, so that I can best care for them and myself during this season of life. I am proud to be teaching in a new avenue, sharing the message of choosing better for our families.
The risk of continuing on the path of endless toxins just isn’t worth it. We get one body, and it’s the only place we have to live. We best take good care of it! We are the gatekeepers of our homes and it’s our job to be advocates for our own health in this ever changing world!
