Hi everyone! My name is Emily Borodzik. I was recently introduced to 716 Health and Young Living Essential Oils. In 2011, at the age of 17 I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and I was looking at about two and a half years of chemotherapy. Months into treatment I met a girl around my age who just started her treatment. Her name is Kaely. Kaely started a foundation for teenage girls (Kaely's Kindness) going through treatment and I became one of the first members.
Kaely's Kindness held a class about essential oils one day at the Buffalo Wellness Center and this is where I met Kristen and Rebecca. I have never heard of essential oils before but after my first class I knew they were for me. Instead of online shopping in bed at night I am now researching oils and different ways to use them or recipes for fun things!
I can't say I have a favorite oil because I have way too many favorites but I do have one that I use the most. It is lavender! I love to diffuse it at night and put drops on my pillow to guarantee me an amazing night of sleep. Before bed I put a mix of coconut oil and lavender on my face and not only does my face look and feel great in the morning but the redness in my face has been decreasing!!! (BEYOND EXCITED)!!
So not only is it great for bed and my face but Lavender has the ability to eliminate nervous tension, helps my bruises heal quicker, enhance my blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. I can't wait to make my own shampoo and conditioner using the lavender as well because it also disinfects the scalp and skin. Oh and did I mention it smells amaaaaazing?! Okay so maybe lavender is my favorite oil!
