Welcome! I’m Diana, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I am a Southern California native who is now living her best life in North Texas. My husband Michael and I have two healthy and happy kiddos, Mia and Maddox.
I started using essential oils after the birth of my daughter, Mia, in 2013. When I found out I was pregnant with Mia I made it my mission to expose her to as few chemicals and toxins as possible. This was not an easy task!
I started with our food, cutting out artificial flavors, dyes, and preservatives. As I learned more about the toxic chemicals in our beauty and personal care products, I threw out my entire medicine cabinet and started over. Then came Young Living.
I initially turned to essential oils to support my daughter’s wellness. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the oils, the products, and the oily lifestyle.
As Mia got older I realized that I could use essential oils not only to support her immune system, but also to support her emotions, her sleep patterns, and her overall well-being.
Mia does not know a life without oils and I have never been a parent without them. 4 years after Mia was born, almost to the day, I had Maddox. I had an easy pregnancy filled with copious amounts of NingXia Red. Maddox was born in a cozy bath full of essential oils.
A little more about me… I am a former elementary teacher with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Teaching. I taught 3rd and 4th grade happily for about 7 years.
After the birth of our son, I found myself missing my own kids. Although I loved teaching, I wanted to be home with them more than anything.
I had the opportunity to join the Recipes with Essential Oils team in January 2018. I loved writing and I loved essential oils. It was a perfect match!
I left my teaching job mid year to start on a new path. I now get to stay at home with my kids and be there the entire day, not just a few hours after my work day. Plus, I get to blog about something that has had a huge impact on my life – essential oils.
My favorite essential oils are mostly blends. I could bathe in Stress Away most days and I can’t live without Joy. And Theives. And Purification. And Citrus Fresh. And Chistmas Spirit. And Valor. I could go on and on.
What can I say, I love essential oils like a third child. I also collect diffusers and I hoard oils. I used to have hobbies, but now I have kids. As you can tell, I am really passionate about essential oils and I am so glad I get to share that passion and knowledge with all of you!
