Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Jacqueline Benitez (or just Jackie for short). I am a full time working Wife and Momma of two wonderful and spunky boys. I am in constant pain daily as I suffer from Fibromyalgia and a “rare” auto-immune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. I have many other health issues that are some results of the auto-immune diseases, but others that are not in relation to them.
I am always looking for healthier and more natural ways to help me stay away from the pharmaceutical industry. Since I suffer from auto-immune diseases, my immune system is lower than the “normal” person. On top of that I took biologicals for the AS for 1 ½ years and those injections also cause a person’s immune system to lower. Now being that I have 2 young boys, germs are always around me, but to add more spunk to the situation, I work for a primary care physician (I know it’s ironic that I work in the medical industry, but cannot stand to put chemicals manufactured by the pharmaceutical industry into my body). All day long it’s germs, germs, and more germs. You can see where I am going with this.
I had a dear friend that introduced me to essential oils about a year ago and since then my life as changed. EOs have become my new passion. Some women collect purses, clothes, or shoes. I collect essential oils. I cannot even begin to explain how much of a difference essential oils have made to my life and my family’s. I used to get sick every other month or so which would always turn into something horrible and I would have to go on antibiotics. I’ve only had to go on an antibiotic ONCE in the last year. How freaking amazing is that?!? On top of that I have found oils that have helped my two strong willed children calm down and go to sleep rather quickly at night. No more fights. No more 1-2 hour long fights of trying to get them to sleep. I simply apply Gentle Baby oil to them, turn my diffuser on with a “go to sleep” mixture and BAM! It’s A M A Z I N G!
I want to be able to share my new passion with people. Help spread the EO goodness and healthier alternatives.
