Hey you!  So you're curious about what all the hype is about essential oils? I hear you. I was too! I kept hearing all this "noise" about these magic potions and thought, "Seriously? People just smell these bottles or rub these 'snake' oils on their skin and than magic happens?"

Yes. Believe it or not, that is EXACTLY what happens. As I share my story here with you, you'll understand why I was in such massive disbelief at first and why now, today, I stand before you as a complete EO junkie and feel compelled to fill you in on the wonder. 

You may have read my Meet Hayley Page, but I want to share a part of my story you probably haven't heard before. Again, I feel compelled to share because I am living proof of what a complete lifestyle turnaround can do when we incorporate essential oils into everything. In addition to sharing my story, I know you also want to hear how I use essential oils in my personal wellness regimen – you know I'm wellness obsessed - you see my Instagrams, right? Well, read on and I'll help you get an idea where to start as well. 

But first, my story...
Starting quite early, I'd say as young as 5 years old, I began suffering from massive abdominal/intestinal discomfort which then set off a chain reaction of illness that continued until just a few years ago. Even though my dad was a MD (yeah I mean the "real" kind of doctor, lol), I suffered with symptoms almost my entire life. I trusted in all I knew - Western medicine. I believed it had all the answers. So although I never got better, in fact, as I got older, everything just got worse from my belly, to my anxiety, to my lack of sleep, to my horrible moods... I never questioned it. I just dealt with it. I believed feeling in dis-ease was normal.
If only I would have known that the solution was in my hands all along. I just didn't realize the power was already inside of me. Did you know you can empower yourself to take control of your physical, emotional and financial health as well? You see, we are all born with our suitcases backed with internal knowledge and intuition. All we have to do is open that suitcase.
OK, more on my story. I was lactose intolerant and as a family (and nation) we already consume way too much dairy. And this is the scary part, but I know you'll relate... we also used products that today top the list of those ingredients said to cause the most toxicity, inflammation and dis-ease.

Well, I finally ran out of ideas with traditional remedies for my issues. Nothing seemed to work. Until I started exploring alternative modalities. And surprise, surprise... You know what happened? Things finally began to make sense.  It all came together. I learned that wellness is more than going "sugar free". I learned that toxicity can happen within your home and body even if you don't use Lysol. Your whole person – including your environment and lifestyle – MUST be taken into account when it comes to wellness. And so I changed my lifestyle... one step at a time. 

I STOPPED doing things I learned were potentially harmful (like going completely fat free. I mean who knew?) and STARTED doing new things like pro-actively taking care of my body with alternative, but effective modalities.I began practicing yoga more often, eating a vegan diet, juicing almost daily and voila, using essential oils! In a very short time I experienced changes. Not subtle changes – I'm talking massive shifts. My entire body was changing. It was literally coming alive. The discomfort that had been a part of my life since I was a child was GONE!I felt like a brand new person. I imagine you would too if you hadn't slept or been in a good mood for 20 years. I almost couldn't believe it. But my WHOLE YOU kept improving. It was obvious these lifestyle changes I was making had a direct impact. You know what they say, "food is medicine", right? And essential oils are plant food.

My Personal Wellness Regimen 

So here's the juicy part you've been waiting for. You want to know what I use. You want to know what I diffuse. You want to know what my daily, personal regime is. I make no secret of the fact that using oils has been life changing for me AND my family in so many ways, but I don't just preach about a holistic approach to wellness. I live it every single day.

I've spent some time to break this section down into 5 main categories:  

Personal Care  



Digestion and  

Rest & Relaxation.  

It's not a laundry list of what I use. I want to give you more than that. I want you to know WHY I use these products and what the benefits are so you can make decisions when it comes to your own emotional, physical and spiritual wellness.

I'm sure you know by now that everything (yes everything) you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. That can work for you or against you depending on the products you use. Why then would you even consider using products with ingredients you can't even pronounce or that are formulated without the scrutiny our bodies deserve?

Most people don't think about the consequences. At least I didn't until it was almost too late. But all those years of eating foods I thought were "healthy", cleaning with products that had toxic ingredients, swimming in pools with chlorine, washing my hair and skin with products I believed to be "safe" because they were expensive, eventually caught up to me. Knowing what I know now, I feel lucky I'm actually alive.  #deadserious.

Our skin soaks up almost everything with which it comes into contact - 80% to be exact. Knowing this, I'm super choosey about what I'm using on myself and my littles. I use doTERRA personal products all day long. 

Let's face it. (Pardon the pun). Your skin is going to age. But one thing my mom always taught me - you're never too young to maintain a regimen that will help you battle the effects of environmental and natural aging elements. And, it's never too late to want to look and feel your absolute best. When I wake up in the morning, I like to freshen up. That means giving myself a mini, quickie facial with doTERRA's  Verage™ Skin Care Collection. Between the blend of essential oils, natural emollients, and nourishing and hydrating plant extracts - can you say HELLO beautiful face.  Check out the 4 products in this collection:

Verage™ Cleanser 

I love an ALL plant based cleanser that reaches deep into my pores to purify my skin. Can you say YUM to the Wild Orange, Melaleuca and Basil essential oils in this product? If that weren't enough, the cleanser helps reduce visible signs of aging. (I bet you can't guess my age).

Verage® Toner 

Secret - I use this toner not only to revive and balance my skin after cleansing, but sometimes as a deodorant. I even carry it in my purse when I travel for a quick spritz which wakes me up immediately.  Bonus - it keeps my makeup in place :-

Verage® Moisturizer 

Did you know even if your skin is oily, you need a moisturizer? Moisturizer helps your skin hydrate. Plus it’s a nice shield between your skin and the environment. You just need to find one that doesn't clog your pores. I personally wouldn't go without it. It's also a nice layer between my skin and my make up even though my make up is plant based :-)

Verage™ Immortelle Hydrating Serum 

One word: Age-defying! The advanced plant technology brings my skin back to life and promotes the same balance found in healthy, youthful looking skin. In sum the whole Verage™ collection delivers results I can see and feel. Glowing. Nourishing. Beautiful.

doTERRA Salon Essentials® Hair Care System 

I have to admit, I was a bit of a snob with hair care products pre my experience with doTERRA. I was actually hesitant to use their hair care. An essential oil company? What did they know about hair care? I'll tell you what... I don't care if I'm staying at a 5 Star hotel. I'm bringing my own doTERRA haircare.

The Shampoo and Conditioner blends plant extracts, along with Wild Orange and Lime essential oils which gently lathers (I hate shampoos that don't lather), cleanses and removes impurities. Result? hair that is Clean, Moisturized, Healthy, Shiny, Smooth and (as my husband says,) Touchable.

Guess what? These products are NOT expensive! Have you checked out the price?
That’s also why I absolutely love the Healthy Hold Glaze® as well. It allows me to blow out, flat iron, or curl my hair with no damage. That's a no brainer, right?

On Guard® Products 

Why?  DUH. I like to work hard and play hard and certainly can't do that if I'm breaking down all the time. So what's better than having essential oils like Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf and Rosemary Leaf/Flower literally IN my laundry detergent,  toothpaste, hand soap and all purpose cleaner?   I'm saying hello to boosting my immune system and good-bye to environmental and seasonal threats.  I mean, we can use all the help we can get, right? On Guard is a blend of essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested: Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils. I'm a non-toxin girl and I also want to get those oils deep into my skin. P.S. It's not just the great smile I was after when I tried the toothpaste. I know this may sound crazy, but the toothpaste is one of my favorite products. I'm not the only one who says that. Once you brush your teeth with doTERRA toothpaste, you'll never use another. It's good enough to eat, which is what we are really doing with it, right? Bonus, its Fluoride - free. Happy dance. P.P.S. You're not just doing laundry at your house, but you're doing LAUN-DRY, like me, I'm sure you'll want clean, fresh clothes that have no evidence of any ickiness. You remember I said this specific oil blend was great for boosting your immune system?  P.P.P.S. You know what kids touch on a daily basis, right? I have a teenager and an 8 year old. Need I say more? I'm not a kid and its scary sometimes what I think I may be touching. doTERRA is always thinking of ways to boost our immune system and they just released On Guard hand spray you can take everywhere.

Reaching peak or optimal health is not just about focusing on your physical wellness. Holistic care doesn't just mean grabbing a green juice and avocado toast after your spin class. It also means embracing tools which will help manage your mental and emotional health as well. In this crazy Insta-focused world, it's pretty easy to feel emotionally out of whack. And if you need to know anything, it's that your emotional state of balance plays a huge factor in your physical well being.

You've heard the phrase "mind body connection" right? It's actually for real. What your mind is doing (what thoughts you choose to focus on), affect how you feel and then how you act on a daily basis. This has a direct impact on the results you get in our life. I am not making this stuff up.

So, depending on how I feel on a particular day, and where I can use support- and believe me, I can always use support, I grab one of my favorite emotional aromatherapy oils: Forgive®, Cheer®, or Motivate®. Here's a little bit about each one.


First of all, things ALWAYS happen that are out of our control and conflict is a part of life. So it's not just IF a situation arises - it's WHEN a situation arises. I am going to need some tools (oils) so I don't LOSE IT. I'm a big believer in forgiving and letting go. This blend helps me open my heart and allows that to happen.

Contentment, relief and patience. Could you ask for any better feelings? It's a super uplifting blend that I wish came in a spritzer so I could just sprinkle it over everyone around me too. LOL


My happy blend! That kind of says it all. I absolutely love this incredibly gorgeous aroma and use it daily. Even if I'm not feeling low or sad. Its the support we all need. The blend contains some of my faves like Wild Orange along with Clove, Anise, Lemon, Myrtle and more. It's a staple for me now. I like to sneak it onto my kiddos when they are having a meltdown.


We all need a little pick me up. Even me. A little more mojo and often times confidence. This oil is so fresh, minty and clean, but has that beautiful blend of citrus yumminess in it as well. 

If I had to pick one oil.... haha I can't, but if I had to pick one, or at least my top 3, this blend is on the top of that list. Let's face it. Many of us spend a ton of time with our faces down in our laptops or other electronic devices.  Our cervical spines are being jutted forward all the time.  In cars and planes as we move around and travel.  Plus, we're retaining fluids we don't need.

This blend, to me, is literally a massage in a bottle. I use it after a workout or right when I fall out of bed in the morning.  It's a tension reliever with its delicious aroma of Cypress, Peppermint, Marjoram, Basil, Grapefruit and Lavender.


I go a million different directions every day between work, family, tending to my personal needs, and trying to have any form of social life. We can be all over the place. Scattered. Forgetful. Unfocused. That's why I love this blend.  

It's all about mental alertness. Without it, we'd be zombies. I surely would not be anywhere near as productive as I am now. A few drops on my forehead and base of my occiput and I'm good to go. You may recognize some of the oils which promote focus in this blend:  Patchouli, Frankincense, Lime, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Chamomile, Amyris.

I'm an addict.  Full disclosure - I have 11 diffusers in my home... every room and in some rooms, two. Even diffusers in the bathrooms (I consider it marital therapy). It's just super important to me to create my haven and to feel nurtured in my environment. That's so easy if I've got oils and blends diffusing everywhere.

My faves are Wild Orange with Patchouli and Lime, Citrus Bliss, Motivate®, Cheer®, and Lemon. If I'm feeling like I need a little more "breath" in my body, I diffuse a combination of Breathe®, Melaleuca and a drop of Oregano.  Of course in the evening, Serenity®, Cederwood, Roman Chamomile, Peace® and Ylang Ylang.

Why do we need supplements? Are our diets adequate?

NO, they are not! 

Are we getting the proper amount of Omegas? Unfortunately, NO! 

A balanced diet should provide all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients our body needs to be healthy. Even if we eat a balanced diet, much of the food we eat today is not real food. 

Sadly, GMOs and processed foods have a corner on the market. If we don't grow our own food we need to be sure we're getting our hands on whole, organic products. That means knowing what to buy and then reading the labels. Even the bar codes on the backs of packaged produce let us know what we're eating. 

Eating a healthy diet gives me a certain amount of energy, but I can always use a boost. 

Here's what keeps me going: 

Lifelong Vitality® Pack 

People always ask me how I get so much done? How I have so much energy? I'll tell you what....
I take Lifelong Vitality (LLV) every single day. I can't envision ever living without it. Here’s why. 

Not only does it energize me, but it also provides antioxidant and DNA protection. It benefits bone health, cardiovascular health and immune function. LLV also contains a "tummy tamer"  blend of Peppermint, Tarragon, Fennel, Ginger and Caraway Seed. It also contains Roman Chamomile, Frankincense, and Wild Orange which literally helps you absorb the  nutrients i  the bottles AND
 helps support the following:  

  • General Wellness and Vitality duh 
  • Metabolismwe're only getting older 
  • Stress Managementwe have enough of this don't we 
  • Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nailsyou can thank me later 
  • Eye, Brain, Nervous System - no brainer and no pun intended 
  • Liver Function and Digestive Health healthy gut, healthy body 
  • Lung and Respiratory Health you're breathing easier already, right? 

PLUS: I t's Gentle on Your Stomach. 

Can you see why my Lifelong Vitality® Pack is a critical part of my personal wellness regimen? If I could only offer one piece of advice, it would be to copy me. You're welcome :-) 

I'm full-on with supplements and super grateful doTERRA supplements are gluten-free and non-GMO. Holistic wellness is about several areas of focus. It's all about body and mind working together and supplements serve both. 

Slim and Sassy® 

I love to eat, but sometimes I wake up and I get busy with my day. Before I know it, its mid day. I've un-intentionally fasted for at least 18 hours.  Grumpy bear? No. I've taken Slim n Sassy gel caps in the morning which support my metabolism and stabilize my blood sugar.  

Notice what's in the blend. Grapefruit Peel, Lemon Peel, Peppermint, Ginger Root and Cinnamon Bark. SUPER detoxifying. Also really helpful if you're trying to manage hunger cravings or need to loose a few lbs. 

DDR Prime® 

Let's talk stress for a moment. It's my specialty. I am an expert on how to be stressed. I have a degree in being a stress case. But then I realized I had control over it. Even though stress can be perceived everywhere, in our environment, in our body... we have a choice not to let it break us down. We really do.  

Of course there are things we can easily do like put more white space on our calendar, go to bed earlier (stop scrolling through Facebook), eat more anti-inflammatory foods, go for a run, lay on our yoga mat, go for a soak, but you know what is even easier? Pop a few of the DDR gel caps every day.   

Are you kidding me? Frankincense, Lemongrass, Niaouli? Not to mention Clove, Thyme, Wild Orange (again). Do you see a theme with this oil? All of these provide powerful antioxidants and help protect against oxidative stress. 

Bummer truth: our cellular function progressively degrades as we age.   Good news and also truth: we can pro-actively take measures against the massive decline. Try the DDR Prime!

Ok, let's talk about more info than either of us wants to share. Politely of course. Digestive discomfort? How does that sound? You know what I'm talking about though, right? Gas? Bloating? Maybe more? Trust me, I've had my fair share. 40 years to be exact. But now I've discovered products like this digestive blend and I use it daily twice a day. Nuff said. 


Same story. Semi different issue. You're not digesting your food like you did 20 year ago. You know it. I know it. Let's be proactive and do something about it. Our digestive enzymes break down, or are literally destroyed - just a fact of life. So we need a little extra help. IF you care about digesting the nutrients from your food, know that growth, healing, reproduction, hormone regulation... and a whole bunch of other biochemical functions don't happen without this enzyme support. I use Terrazyme which helps with the digestive process.  I'd definitely put this on your list.

Our emotions are a natural response to what's going on in our brain. We have conscious and unconscious thoughts that trigger our emotions in both a positive (yeah! whoop whoop! happy dance!) and negative (fur REAL? come ON..., sad face, WTF emoji). But either way, good or bad, emotions have a purpose and we all feel better after a good cry, right? I know I do!

So when we are feeling an emotion that is out of whack, or that we would prefer not to be feeling, or we'd like to raise a vibration a bit more, essential oils can help make that possible.  


Here is another one of my "if I had to pick one oil." This is a must use every darn day. WHY? Because if I don't, I may not have any family or friends left. It would just be me, myself and I - all cray  cray and alone. Although truth be told, I do spritz a bit of this oil here and there and everywhere around littles...just sayin'. 
Seriously, this blend does exactly what its name suggests: it helps balance my emotions. It keeps me levelheaded and calm, and sets my pace for my day. Hey - that works for me!

I'm a girl who has been on the go my entire life. I thrive on activity, but I do appreciate the fact that none of us can show up in any aspect of our lives without feeling good. If we aren't resting and/or relaxed, quite honestly, we would be a complete hot mess!

By rest, I mean physical AND emotional rest. Yes, of course we need enough sleep to literally function. And if we had a tough workout or a long run, our muscles need to rest and recover as well. But here is the deeper layer my friends - we also need that white space in our brain to be able to ground ourselves and tap into layers of higher consciousness. We need less stress and less activity in order to thrive. 

Can I share with you some of my tips?

I start AND end the day with Rose or Jasmine on my heart and upper lip.

Rose is SUPER emotionally uplifting and grounding for me.  Some actually say, if you don't know what to use and you're in need of a miracle, use Rose oil. Bonus, it will help your skin look luxurious as well. 

Jasmine is my favorite aroma hands down. It's literally called the "King of Flowers" and prized for its delightful aroma.

If you are like me and enjoy the sweet smell of roses or jasmine, feel free to apply either of these oils to your neck, wrists or heart for a beautiful and romantic personal fragrance.

Every evening around 8:00pm (or earlier if I'm lucky), my family starts winding down. My favorite oils to diffuse are Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang and Serenity® blend. One nice thing about diffusing is we all get to enjoy the benefits. Aromatherapy is nice that way. The aromatic compounds from the oils are lifted from the diffuser and stay suspended in the air for hours. Don't think I'm not placing a few drops of these beauties all over my body as well :-)

I also place a bit of Vetiver on the bottoms of my feet and Cedarwood on the base of my occiput. Vetiver is a peaceful, grounding oil well known to help promote a fantastic night's sleep. Cedarwood is warm and woodsy and also helps create a peaceful, relaxing environment. 

As you acquaint yourself with essential oils you may find others you like as well. Although we may deal with many of the same issues, there are others that are unique to each of us and there will be oils you prefer that are not on this list. Experiment, explore and most of all, have fun with your oils! You are going to absolutely LOVE them.  XO
