Lorraine PerryCategories


Hi there and I’m glad you are here. My name is Lorraine, better known as “poopy” to my 3 grandkids and Lulu to some other family members!! I am so excited to share my experiences with you about Young Living and my journey with essential oils along with this amazing company as an Independent Distributor.  I am new to this blog writing so please be patient with me as I learn how all this works!!  Together we will learn about essential oils and hopefully, one day, you will make that lifestyle decision and travel on your Young Living essential oil journey!!


First things first, so lets just get right to it. First off, I am not a professional in the medical field. I’m not a Dr., I’m not a nurse nor am I not a pharmacist, so therefore this information presented on my blog is in NO way intended to treat, cure, diagnose or prevent any illness or disease. Second, if you have a medical condition, I strongly urge you to seek medical assistance from a professional. You are also encouraged to seek the knowledge of your health care professional before making any changes to your health routine. This blog is strictly about my journey with Young Living and using essential oils to optimize my whole-body wellness and support my overall system.

This is my journey on how I began with Young Living!!!

I have to be right up front and honest here guys. How many of you had ever heard of essential oils, because lord knows, I had never heard of essential oils much less this company called Young Living.  I never would have believed that a “drop of this oil” or a “drop of that oil” would work, much less how quick it would work until I had an opportunity arise one evening in September 2014!! These whole-body, wellness essential oils are truly changing lives, one drop at a time!! What started out as a typical day for me, all changed when I came home from work.. While preparing for a crafting event, my daughter came over to offer her assistance in getting things prepared. Well unbeknownst to her, I had been having discomfort in my side, neck and shoulders for a few days, to where I would literally have to get up from my desk and walk around the office to ease the discomfort every so often. So here I am, at home, trying to gather up crafting goodies and making a list of our projects we plan to do and I was just literally bouncing around the house.. Well little did I know that something magical was about to happen to change my way of thinking about grabbing an OTC or even the heating pad (which I had been doing for a few days by now)… In all reality, I guess I was making her a nervous wreck by being super hyper, (which I’m not) to where she called me back into the kitchen. Little did I know that she had a plan, but more importantly, that she was even using essential oils!! She places something on the back of my neck, so I continued on about my business gathering up crafting supplies.. Well, the magic happened. Within a few short minutes, I realized that my discomfort had eased up and I seemed more relaxed than I had been a few minutes earlier, so I knew that whatever she had placed on my neck caused that to happen,  so now she has really peaked my interest.

Well of course curiosity was getting the best of me, so I was in the questioning mode at this stage on just what exactly she placed on my neck. What was her secret? It was a single drop of essential oil-ee (Lavender) goodness. So now I’m thinking an oil made that happen??? Yes and it worked!!! How did she learn about these essential oils? Where did they come from??? Where can I get them??? What other benefits are they good for??? It was 20 question time… My sweet daughter pulled out her essential oil bag (yep, she had a bag full of these Ahh-mazing oils) and standing right there in the kitchen she did a brief introduction to Young Living and essential oils and how she was benefiting from them. I was like, nothing has ever worked that fast!! So I then said “sign me up“!  So we continued to talk for a bit more about the essential oils and I thought to myself  that by having a specific goal in mind and being able to utilize essential oils for that goal then that goal could be easily be met. I signed up right there and then and so my Young Living Essential Oil journey began.. Getting my Premium Starter Kit was like getting a long awaited Christmas present. With every passing day I have grown in both my knowledge, passion and love for these amazing essential oils. I am now a proud, full fledged “oilyholic”!! I USE ESSENTIAL OILS EVERYDAY!!! I never would have believed that a “drop of this oil” or a “drop of that oil” would work, much less how quick…Until I was proven that they do!!
