Done thinking about it?

I worked as a pharmacy technician compounding custom medications for almost 10 years. While I loved getting to help people and animals with unique problems by mixing up all sorts of chemicals into creams, suspensions, capsules, and injections; I was turned off by absorbing some of these chemicals in my own body. After helping the pharmacy come up with a plan for employees and customers to avoid unwanted chemical exposure, I decided it was time for something else. I wanted to get pregnant and not worry about work hazards harming my unborn baby. I found a job on the regulatory side of pharmacy working for the Texas State Board of Pharmacy, and had a baby! While pregnant, I discovered essential oils. I get headaches regularly, and my normal headache concoction was definitely not pregnancy safe. I found a mixture of lavender and diluted peppermint oil to be effective for my headaches without all of the scary baby-harming chemicals. Then when I went into labor and reached a particularly painful mental block, my nurse brought me some warm lavender oil infused water with a washcloth to apply to my neck. Since I had decided to do this childbirth thing without drugs, the lavender oil was the perfect solution to keep me sane. It helped and I was intrigued. I definitely wanted to try more oils, but didn't really know where to start. Fast forward a few months to when my friend Carrie sent me a few oils to try out, and I've been hooked ever since! It's been fun learning about essential oils, and I'm excited to be able to share some of the oily fun with you!
