Hi, I'm Robyn!

Hi! I’m Robyn!  I’m an essential oil loving momma who is a medical freedom advocate and I’m extremely passionate about toxic and chemical-free living.  I save every single scrap piece of paper and care about recycling. I am continually ah-mazed at how G-d made our bodies, so intricate and everything having a purpose and most importantly, they are designed to heal. It blows my mind as I learn more and more about how natural things, like plants and natural elements support our overall health.  I have to admit, I didn’t know or realize of any of this when I first started having babies. (and boy, I wish I did!) 

I am a mother of two amazing children. My eye opening experience began when my oldest was three years old and was diagnosed with autism. No mother ever wants to hear those words from a doctor! It hurts like no other. It feels like your heart is being ripped outside of your body. But, as a parent of a special needs child, you know you are the advocate. The caregiver. The one who has to find the answers.  I followed the traditional system all of my life and when the kids were young. When my son was nine, he would chase me around the kitchen to bite me.  The doctor wanted to prescribe him a medication that had many potential side effects.  We were worried about the side effects, along with the possibility that the medication would change his personality. On top of that, our son was not able to communicate how he felt and nobody “could or would” say that it would work. Although I was brought up in the traditional medical model, I didn’t believe this was the right decision for my son. 

Somehow I stumbled upon essential oils, took two classes and after a meeting with a nurse who used essential oils, I got the courage to try one. I didn’t completely understand what they were and how they worked, but I knew I needed to do something. So, I bought an essential oil called vetiver. My son chased me around the kitchen, I maneuvered him to a chair and put the essential oil on his big toe (the vita flex point to the brain.) Shockingly, his whole body changed after two minutes and I was sold! I slowly replaced one thing, mastered it and moved onto the next thing. This is my way to sustain changes! This eye-opening experience opened the door to the natural health world and I have never looked backed!

Over the years, I have researched and experienced many healing techniques and tools. I have learned so much about our bodies, health, food-you name it! And with the essential oils working so well, I had to share them with people!!!! My journey has led me to learning and becoming certified in new healing modalities such as Quantum Nutrition Testing (QNT) and Emotion Code as well as becoming a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner. My family is constantly evolving in our health and wellness regimen and we are thankful to all of the healers that have influenced our health journey. While we are all on different paths, my wish is to empower mommas like you, to make small sustainable changes on your wellness journey. And, to know, it is okay to make decisions “out of the box.”

I am so very lucky to be teaming up with Julie, my bestie. We go wayyy back, even though we are so young (LOL.) We love to talk about natural health, inspire each other and have lots of fun!!!! Come join us!

And I'm Julie!

I love everything natural and affectionately call myself a treehugger because I love hugging trees and grounding with my feet bare in the grass. I totally geek out on learning how things work – especially how the body is designed to function and heal. I’m trying to change the world, one person at a time. I am obsessed with essential oils and oil-infused supplements which allowed our family to ditch the toxins 10 years ago. I’m done with polluting our bodies with synthetic junk that annihilates our body systems.  Truth be told, back in 2011, I didn’t read a single ingredient label on a package or even question that certain products wouldn’t be safe for my family. I’m a homeschooling mom and a voracious reader. Since 2011, I’ve spent over 5000 hours studying wellness and now it’s my season to put all that knowledge into action.  It’s time to help others discover true wellness and FEEL AWESOME EVERYDAY. 

Twelve years ago, my eyes began to open because the traditional healthcare model that I grew up in didn’t have answers for my 4-year-old son. For 14 months he struggled with constipation. He struggled to even have a bowel movement every 10 days. This meant he was highly toxic all of the time. My momma heart hurt for my little one because I didn’t know how to help him. The traditional medical model didn’t have any answers either. No one ever asked the question, “I wonder what the root cause is?” Through divine intervention, a friend led me to a wellness class where the topic was about dairy. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I took that information, went home and cold turkey took my family off dairy. My son began having regular bowel movements within 2 weeks. What a huge relief for this momma!  It took some time to heal his gut and recover from the toxic assault on his body, but through eating clean, eliminating chemicals, using essential oils and oil-infused supplements, he was able to thrive again.

I asked myself “If I didn’t know this, what else don’t I know?” The answer is pretty much everything. This experience ignited my passion and enthusiasm for learning more about natural living and helping others that are struggling with health issues. Once you experience amazing results, you just want to shout it from the mountaintops! Gradually, I began teaching classes and showing others how to use natural tools to achieve wellness. I also became certified in Quantum Nutrition Testing (QNT) where I love helping mommas, their kids, and especially their fur babies. My expertise is in identifying the root cause of those unwanted symptoms. It’s so rewarding to watch those symptoms disappear with the right nutrition, supplementation, and, of course, by helping to balance the body so it can support itself on its own.
