Booking It

I love to write.  I don't know what it is about it exactly.  I think I feel like I can communicate better that way.  More successfully, I guess I should say.  I'm much easier to understand on paper.  I can edit and re-edit until I convey the message I want the way I see or … Continue reading Booking It

Hands On

There's something to be said for a man who can actually do stuff. (Yes, I understand women can also do things and take care of themselves, as I most definitely can, but that's not the point here.) The point is men have changed. How many of you have a man in your life who can … Continue reading Hands On

Resolve to Evolve

I'm not a big resolution person. Mainly because I know myself well enough to know I won't follow through if I don't want to, regardless of what I decide at the new year. However, the past few weeks I've thought about the new year a lot. Maybe it's because I will turn 40 and I'm … Continue reading Resolve to Evolve

Creativity

The most surprising thing I've found along my journey is my creativity. I've always liked to mess around with paint and drawing and such, but after my teenage years that got lost in the midst of living. When I started using essential oils in my daily life and reading product labels, that spark to create … Continue reading Creativity

Oils of Our Lives

I'm at a weird point. I'm doing something I really enjoy. Weird. Taking a hobby I've had for years and sharing it with a lot of people. Also weird. More people than I ever expected in a few short weeks. I find myself randomly recommending oils in conversation. Which is not me. Then there's the … Continue reading Oils of Our Lives

A Teacher I Am Not

Never in a million years would I have guessed that I would like teaching.  I hate talking in front of people.  I almost failed speech in college.  I literally want to vomit just remembering that class.  And no one cares what I think anyway.  But here I am, sharing and teaching about Young Living and … Continue reading A Teacher I Am Not

A Better Me (and You)

The past few weeks have been so much fun for me.  I set a goal to be a better me and to make better decisions for my family.  And I decided I wanted to share what I was learning, so I started a Facebook page (facebook.com/katiesoilyjourney) and a blog.  Feel free to look me up … Continue reading A Better Me (and You)

The name

I swear my husband asks me the name of this site just so he can laugh at me repeatedly.  I get it.  The name is odd.  What is it about the word "oily" that sounds so...well, risqué and/or literally dirty?  What I'm going to share on this page is waaaayyy left field from that.  I'm … Continue reading The name
