Writing something about myself is hard. What do you start with?
I am a woman and a mum, to an utterly awesome autistic son (pictured in the gallery) and I am lucky enough to share this journey with an equally awesome husband.
I’ve worked in retail in jobs I have enjoyed and found fulfilling. But there came a time when work and home life were no longer compatible and that meant giving up part of what defined me, being of service to others. I knew I needed to be there for the fun and the demands of family life, I also needed people and the level of fulfilment working gives me and, of course, I needed income. But how? The only answer was to become self employed. But what?
I started reading Angel Cards over a decade ago after being introduced to them by a beautiful soul who was called Valery, a friendship that started me on my Spiritual Path. This path of self discovery also lead me to receive my Reiki 1 attunement in 2008 meaning I could self heal and practice on my friends, family and pets. My Reiki 2 attunement (meaning I could treat anyone) came about a decade later, followed by Reiki 3 towards the end of 2020 making me a Reiki Master meaning I can now teach and attune others.
Since around the birth of my son we’ve been aware of clean living and try to be as natural as we can. I was introduced to DōTERRA essential oils by my beautiful sister and was an instant addict. I became an Advocate to get the best prices and when I had the opportunity to train in the AromaTouch Technique I jumped at the chance.
I launched Essential Energies in October 2020. Despite lockdowns and ups and downs business is growing steadily. Yet again I am blessed with a job I love.
