ABOUT ME AND MY JOURNEY
Hi there, my name is Irene Gough. I am a mother of a teenage son and a wife of a supportive husband. I come from a family of 17 in a rural town in Renfrew County. My home today is in the country of Havelock, Ontario, Canada and I am a Young Living Independent Distributor.
My passion in life is helping people, helping through education, listening and just being there for family, friends and new acquaintances. I feel we need more love, kindness and compassion in our world and I strive to accomplish this every day.
My Young Living Journey
I am sure many of you are wondering what brought me to Young Living Essential Oils?
My journey began 2 years ago when I attended a 101 Information Session and got the low down on the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living. At this session I found out how these 11 pure, therapeutic grade essential oils could change my life. Frankincense was antitumor, Lavender can help you sleep, Peppermint helps with headaches and migraines, Panaway reduces throbbing pain and decreases inflammation, Copaiba prevents infection, Northern Lights Black Spruce helps with grounding and calming, Thieves is antibacterial and antivirus, Purification cleanses and purifies the air, Lemon helps boost the immune system, R.C. is great for congestion and colds, and Digize relieves nausea and heartburn.
Yes I am pretty sure all of these oils will fit into my medicine cabinet. Oh plus the kit comes with a diffuser and is only $199.99 plus tax and shipping. Yes I am in.
So how do essential oils work in our body? These powerful earth medicines come from distilled plants, flowers, roots, shrubs, bushes and seeds. I am sure many of you remember your Grandma or parents creating natural concoctions to help relieve your ailments. I sure do. Essential oils are 100 to 10,000 more concentrated than natural dried herbs. 1 drop of Peppermint is equivalent to 28 Peppermint Teas. WOW!
When essential oils are inhaled they affect the brain through a variety of receptor site mainly the limbic system (emotional brain). This section of the brain has the thalamus, hypothalamus, pineal gland and the pituitary gland. These control all of the major functions in our body; blood pressure, hunger thirst, sleep, sex hormones, stress levels and many more.
My main concern to learn more about essential oils was my scalp psoriasis and my allergies. At that time I was receiving injection shots for my allergies. This was a huge expense for me. Even with the allergy shots I would still get a major sinus infection every spring and fall which would end up with a trip to my doctor and a prescription for Biaxin. As per Biaxin the side effects are: vomiting, headaches, unpleasant taste in the mouth, stomach pain, rash etc. Three of the oils in the Premium Starter Kit could help with allergies; Peppermint, Lavender and Lemon. You can diffuse, inhale or apply topically to get relief. With essential oils it's preventative maintenance and consistency.
Now to tackle my scalp psoriasis, I have had my scalp psoriasis for 32 years. For those that do not know what this is, picture baby cradle cap that never goes away, flakes consistently on your clothing and in your hair, and big scaly patches on your scalp. I tried everything and nothing worked. So 9 months after I got my kit I started researching essential oils for scalp psoriasis and what carrier oils were best for the scalp. I found my solution. Organic Jojoba Oil, Peppermint, Tea Tree and Lavender Essential Oils followed by a hair re-growth salve with Organic Coconut Oil, Lavender, Rosemary, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils. After 3 applications in one week all the scales were gone and my scalp was cleared. I still do a treatment about every 8 weeks as I get a small spot about the size of a nickel. I also have switched to Young Living Copaiba shampoo and conditioner and reduced my gluten intake. To me, clearing my scalp psoriasis was a miracle.
I know many of you are looking for natural chemical free ways to change your life for the better. You have tonnes of questions or maybe you just don’t know where to start. I was there too. I would seriously never go back to the chemical/ prescription way. Don’t get me wrong I know prescriptions save lives but are there other options? To me I found them, in Young Living. I trust this company and I am proud to be an Independent Distributor. I love their values and SEED to SEAL commitment, I am in for the long haul.
For those looking not only for a lifestyle change but a career change, Young Living offers this too. In 3 years my leader has reached the rank of Platinum. She has achieved this through hard work, many tears and $12,000 a month income. ( yes 1 month) I am not there yet but I plan to be! The sky is the limit!!
