“I like what I see; whatever you’re doing, keep doing it.”

My doctor said those words to me with a satisfied look upon his face.  He looked at me like a dad who's proud of his child for eating all of their veggies. Talk about shocked and relieved all at once!
A
s I walked out of his office that afternoon, I thought, “Hmmm, that oil worked.”

That was five years ago. 

Once upon a time, I was a skeptic.  I was not open-minded enough to give any consideration to natural methods of health and wellness.  My mindset was conditioned to the modern ways of "healthcare."  However, two things of major significance occurred in my life that compelled me to embrace God’s way of health and wellness.

I was diagnosed with hypertension. I had a fear of becoming dependent upon prescription medicine; therefore, I had to make some changes, and make them fast. I knew what could happen as a result of a growing dependency upon prescription medication.  Hence, my oldest sister...
My oldest sister, Missionary Donna Washington
1963-2014

My oldest sister became terminally ill and as a result, she carried what I call, a “miniature pharmacy,” with her.  I knew that one or two of those medications clashed with one another.  She had so many, she had to set an alarm on her phone as a reminder to take each one.  
She took all of those prescription meds, to absolutely no avail. 


She transitioned in February 2014 at age 50.

I work in gospel radio, and one of the broadcasters at that time introduced me to essential oils.  After inquiring about which oils would help hypertension, she mentioned Wild Orange oil.  I ordered the oil and used it internally by adding two to three drops to my water.  My weekly regimen consisted of using wild orange essential oil one day, prescription meds the next.  I did this every other day-oils one day, meds the next. At my follow up appointment, my BP numbers improved dramatically.  Since then, I stepped out on faith and chose to manage my health naturally.  I am no longer on prescription medication.  I watch what I eat, increase my water intake, use doTERRA essential oils prayerfully and take doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Supplements.  Total game-changers. 


Since then, I’ve shared doTERRA Wild Orange oil with other people who battled hypertension and swelling in their feet and ankles.  My mother, who also takes a plethora of prescription medications, eventually incorporated essential oils into her daily regimen.  It has significantly helped with her swelling and arthritic conditions. I have been sharing the “Gospel of Essential Oils” ever since, and those I’ve introduced essential oils to gave me nothing but praise reports.

As a minister and wellness advocate, I share doTERRA oils, seeing to the need and health concerns of all I come on contact with. I stand upon James 5:14 when I share oil. 

doTERRA for me, is more than a business; it's MINISTRY.  Essential oil is truly a God-ordained miracle.


I plan to continue my "Oilspirations" with you, so stay tuned!
