Hi, I'm Melissa.

A paleo loving, holistic living, modern day 'hippy' mama, with a passion for natural health and wellbeing.

I was introduced to doTERRA essential oils in 2014 by our hypnobirthing instructor, when pregnant with my second child, but I didn't start using them until after the birth of our daughter.  When she was about 5 months old she caught a virus from our son and was quite unwell.  A friend suggested that I use the few oils I had (lavender, lemon and peppermint) to aid in her recovery , and almost immediately my life was changed in such an incredible way that I began building my oily 'medicine cabinet' and incorporating EO's into our daily lives.  


Since our journey with essential oils began, I have been fascinated by the science behind how essential oils affect the body, both emotionally and physically through aromatic, topical and internal use.

In aromatic use, the scent can illicit a powerful, physiologic, mental and emotional response.  Essential oils are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system by way of the olfactory nerve. The limbic system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions including smell, emotions, behavior, and memory.


For this reason, essential oils have an especially powerful effect via aromatic application, and using them with our range of diffuser jewellery is the perfect way to enjoy them.
