A sickly little lady
Aromahead graduate Andrea Bailey-Tweed described herself as a “sickly” little lady.
However her mom and grandmother had been all the time there for her, making pure blends with herbs and oils that helped her really feel higher.
As Andrea grew up, she continued to imagine in and use holistic care, however she by no means had time to give attention to it. She was busy constructing a profession, household, and way of life that she LOVED! She was deeply pleased together with her life.
Till the unthinkable occurred.
Andrea obtained sick. Very sick.
A downward spiral
When she writes about her illness (on her web site), Andrea doesn’t go into a lot element. (I can think about why… it could be troublesome to relive that!)
She merely describes it as a
“downward spiral that I assumed would by no means finish.”
Andrea noticed numerous docs and medical professionals, who all advised her that she would by no means get any higher. They mentioned she simply needed to study to reside together with her situation.
Then started the numerous rounds of surgical procedures and dozens of prescribed drugs—“none of which labored,” Andrea says. “And I quickly started having severe negative effects from the drugs.”
Ultimately, Andrea wound up in a wheelchair.
She believed she would by no means stroll once more, and her love for her household was the one factor that stored her holding on.
To high all of it off, all of those therapies had been devastating to Andrea’s household’s funds.
The ability of the flower!
At her wits finish, Andrea prayed for assist.
The reply got here to her in a dream.
Within the dream, Andrea’s deceased grandmother reminded her of the ability of vegetation. (Andrea calls it “the ability of the flower!”)
She says, “I had been taught methods to use oils and fully ignored it! The very subsequent day, I started my official schooling into the world of important oils, spending a whole lot of hours in formal examine and coaching.”
Her ardour for studying and supporting her personal restoration led her to Aromahead Institute, and the Aromatherapy Certification Program (the ACP). (See her Aromahead graduate profile right here!)
Aromatherapy certification: mastering a (not so) robust topic
At first, Andrea was somewhat intimidated by how in-depth the chemistry parts of the category appeared.
Chemistry was certainly one of her hardest topics at school.
“After I came upon there was a chemistry part within the ACP, I actually panicked… Then got here Andrea Butje [the lead instructor in the ACP]. I might really perceive her. I might comply with this. I used to be sooo proud that I obtained by way of this and couldn’t imagine it. Andrea Butje made it easy. Actually, she did.”
With what she was studying about important oils, she says:
“I started to do and achieve issues
I by no means thought I’d do once more.”
Quickly, she was combining important oils with therapeutic therapeutic massage and chiropractic work.
Her husband and sons had been amazed at what she was studying and the way it was serving to her.
In time, she even obtained up out of her wheelchair.
A well being victory and a brand new path
Andrea says,“Right this moment, I stand right here. Sure, I STAND right here!
“I’m strolling by myself and doing greater than I’ve been capable of do in years. I’m main the life I knew nonetheless existed for me.”
Now she makes use of her schooling in important oils and pure therapies to run her personal enterprise—Earth’s Personal Necessities—so she will help others.
She doesn’t promise that everybody’s outcomes might be as highly effective as hers.
“However,” she says, “with the rising prices of healthcare and prescriptions, it’s extra essential than ever to be proactive about caring for your personal physique.
“Don’t get me flawed, I nonetheless imagine that
medical care is essential, however dedication is essential.
Generally it’s a must to transcend the norm to succeed.”

Instructing others about important oils is its personal reward, however listening to about Andrea’s journey merely takes my breath away.
It’s such a privilege to assist individuals rework their lives with the ability of important oils, and to look at them go on to assist others.
