Hello! My name is Kelli Jones. Here’s my deal. By day I have a professional career and by night I’m a dabbling blogger and an avid essential oiler! I’m a busy, working mom, like so many and discovering Young Living has been such a crazy blessing to us. My kiddos are 10 and 6. Obviously from the picture, you can see I’m a carrot-top and so is my little man. My youngest isn’t, but she’s fiery enough without red hair! (I’m not exaggerating here, people.)
My journey started four or five years ago when I stumbled upon a book called The Unhealthy Truth by Robyn O’Brien (One Mother’s Shocking Investigation into the Dangers of America’s Food Supply– and What Every Family Can Do to Protect Itself). It started me on a mission of reducing GMOs and chemicals from the food my family eats, which was quickly followed by other changes to eliminate chemicals and toxins from our home. In my free time, which is virtually non-existent! But when I get something in my head, I go all in. Living a more natural and healthy lifestyle has become a passion for me. I am by no means perfect, but I’m trying to make good choices for my littles.
Like I said, I am a busy, working mom. My first thought as I explored a less processed and less toxic lifestyle was “as if I have time for this!”. I have learned from my friends who work and my friends who stay home, moms just don’t have extra time. Period. Over time and trials, I have found several things that work for me, things that don’t, things I make at home, things I buy elsewhere, and things I’m willing to overlook for sanity’s sake. Sometimes you just gotta do what you can do, and forget the rest! At first I was completely overwhelmed, but got through it by focusing on one change at a time. Along the way, I discovered Young Living Essential Oils and have spent the last three years learning how they can help enhance my health and help my family. And even my sanity. We started out using oils for immune support, but over time I have found so many other benefits…from helping naturally with energy or relaxation to using in my beauty routine to managing a very headstrong toddler! Here’s the thing. In my thirties I’ve finally started learning we get one shot at this life and it goes by FAST! So I’m doing my best to rock it.
I’m also a testing-taking nerd. I’ve had my CPA and Certified Financial Planner TM certifications for many years. As a result of my passion for natural health, I’m currently working on my certification in French Aromatherapy. Again…free time…right.
A friend recently gave me a bracelet that I ADORE! It says #crazyblessed and it cracks me up that she thought of me when she saw it (this is a friend who knows my heart!). But that’s my jam. Gratitude, people, it keeps me going. Because we are all #crazyblessed when we look around us. I am passionate about health, wellness, essential oils and living a vibrant life. I’m giving it my best shot and I’m so glad you are here!
