Friday Finds {Vol. 19} - Essential Oils


When I was in college, my roommate was a study bug as she dreamed of becoming a doctor. I remember so vividly when she would put on her soothing music and hit the books. She was so diligent and determined; I knew she would rock at her dream.

Fast forward to now, and she has fulfilled her dream and then some! Jody is now determined to make others aware of how amazing essential oils can be; and now, she has me convinced. I have been using the oils for almost 2 years now, and we LOVE them. From their calming effect to easing tummy troubles, these oils are the real deal.

If you haven't heard much about oils, I encourage you to do your research. I learn new things everyday about how these oils can help in our lives. In fact, I often text Jody for advice. She has also started a Facebook page where we can go to her and others for advice and help. Not a day goes by that I don't use one or more oils, and I am still learning.

Need a place to start? The starter kit is just that - 10 of the most used oils plus the home diffuser. The oils in this kit can be used across the board - from supporting your immune system to calming a fussy baby. Or, need to boost your cleaning routine? Add some of these oils to your mop water or when you clean your counter tops. With the oils, you can apply them topically, diffuse them aromatically, or ingest them. Also, the Young Living site has other accessories to make your oil experience so valuable.

My favorite uses:

  • Thieves - rub on my kids' feet to boost immunity; a great guard against the germs!
  • Lavender - diffuse to give a calming mood to our house; apply to help with the occasional sniffles
  • Stress Away - apply to wrists for those long days
  • Joy - diffuse or apply to boost mood and increase happiness
I am so happy Jody wanted to share her thoughts on how these oils have affected her family's life -

I want to start off by saying that I am so proud of my friend and college roommate, Lil Kim, as I know her. First of all, she looks amazing! Secondly, I love that she is reaching out to people in a new and exciting way, through this blog and through Beachbody. Kim has endured several big bumps in her road of life, but she has always picked herself up and moved on. It has been awesome to see the way that she has risen above and responded to these challenges. And now, she is on a mission to help those around her navigate this crazy life. Kim and I have had some great times together; and she was a huge support for me when I was studying in college to become a doctor. She even brought me beer when I finished my MCAT. Ahhh, those were the good ole days. 

My journey in medicine has changed quite a bit from when I first finished my training. My training is as an ER doctor. However, I have been thinking a lot lately about my true purpose in life...why was I put on this earth? I enjoyed my time in the ER for awhile, but I started to feel a pull towards a different type of medicine. Due to some of my own health struggles, I started to look for more natural ways to live a happy and healthy life. One that didn't involve medications and toxic chemicals. One that treated the body as a whole and looked for the root cause of issues. My family and I have made a lot of changes in our lives to support this new way of living. And, I now believe that my true calling is to help people take control of their own health and happiness. If this is something that resonates with you, I would encourage you to go for it. Your body will thank you.

That’s where the essential oils came into play for me. I started using them about 3 years ago; and haven't looked back. Over that 3 year period, we have completely transformed our home with the oils and non-toxic products. I honestly could talk about the oils all the time…they really are amazing! I have completely walked away from my career as an ER doctor. I am solely focusing on educating people about the oils right now. To me, that is a very powerful testimony to the fact that they work!

I truly believe that they are a great addition to a healthy lifestyle. And, I love that my friends like Kim have incorporated them into their daily lives and are seeing huge benefits from them.

Kim, I am so happy for you; and I am so excited to see where this new road leads you!!!

Cheers to good health,
Jody Lorimer, M.D.

Thank you, Jody, for sharing and teaching me so much about oils. Just like fitness and health, I need support to help me achieve inner and outer balance. I truly believe the oils do just that.

With Love,
