    Hello! My name is Christy Skinner and I am a dōTERRA® Essential Oils Educator, along with being a lover of natural and toxin free living.


    I live in North Carolina, and I am a single mother to my 3 amazing children, my 2 chihuahua pups, and two sweet kitty cats too. I began my natural living journey 5 years ago, with my start of using essential oils in 2013, during a time when my middle son was diagnosed with severe ADHD, speech delay, developmental disabilities, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, OCD, Sensory Processing Disorder, Generalized and Social Anxiety, and learning disabilities too. I was literally at my wits end with trying everything I possibly could, in order to help my child to manage his behavior during anxious times, to help him feel more in control of his emotions, and to help him achieve a more restful nights sleep. I was offered a bottle of Lavender oil, from a friend, and that was the beginning of my love affair with essential oils. I knew right away that I needed to continue trying ALL of the oils, with my entire family.


    I continued to try more essential oils to help ease anxious feelings and promote a more restful nights sleep, and at that point I found that all essential oils are not created equal. I researched Essential Oils found in aromatherapy shops, or online, and I found that dōTERRA® essential oils were absolutely amazing, and I realized just how much I loved their products. And to my surprise, these beautiful oils actually help with so much more than what I had initially set out to work on. My entire families health and well being improved drastically, and I felt very empowered as a Mom who could naturally care for my children, and not have to take on unnecessary prescription medications.


    I have since been studying under several certified aromatherapists, and I have continued my journey through natural living. Along the way I became much more aware of the toxins that are in our foods, and many of our body care products and our cleaning products too. I have spent endless hours researching our foods and all of our products, and I found that soo many of our products contain known carcinogens, and I just couldn't continue with using such toxic products, or allowing my children to eat foods that were full of toxic ingredients. So on to the organic world we went!


    I then decided that I wanted to be able to provide personalized care, education and guidance, to everyone, on how to live their life naturally, using essential oils safely and effectively, eating healthy, using non-toxic products, and boosting our immune systems naturally. I would love to help guide you into your journey of natural and healthy living.
