Hi! My name is Mary Clement and my oil journey started back in 2005 when my brother introduced me to Young Living. I immediately purchased a starter kit after my silly, giggly emotional reaction to Joy oil. :-) I used the oils on and off for several years, not fully understanding their power or how to even really use them. I was an officer in the United States Air Force and oils were not a thing back then, so I was a closet user! I didn't even tell anyone I had them!
Then in 2012 something drastic happened! While I was on multiple heavy-duty prescription medications for back pain, anxiety and depression, I unexpectedly found myself pregnant with baby number four. This was a HUGE wake up call for me!! I am by nature a very natural-minded person so to find myself in this situation, I was shocked! How did I get into this medication, side-effects, more medications, more side-effects cycle?! I was so medicated, yet still feeling awful, and now I was pregnant!
It's interesting what a positive pregnancy test can do! I had attempted to wean off these medications for a couple of years, but my symptoms always flared up when I did. But once I found out I was pregnant, it was like a switch was flipped and my brain knew my body now belonged to the baby. As with everything I do, I immediately made bold changes, and I took myself off ALL my medications within FIVE DAYS!! (No, the doctors did not approve!) For the next five months my life was a drug-withdrawal, morning-sickness nightmare! Image getting up at 5am for squadron PT sessions...oh, it was PAINFUL!!! And then one morning around 20 weeks pregnant, I woke up and all was clear! And I have been medication-free ever since, (even including my natural birth)!!
I reactivated my Young Living account and for the remainder of my pregnancy, I became super oily! I really took on the Young Living lifestyle, swapped out all my personal care and cleaning products and eventually threw away all the (now expired) medications in our house. And it's been oily goodness ever since!
My husband and I both retired from the United States Air Force in 2014 and launched Four Seasons Essential Oils, LLC at that time. We have totally embraced this lifestyle and love coaching, mentoring, and inspiring others to a happier, healthier, more abundant way of living using Young Living Essential Oils.
Our mission is to empower families to reach their highest potential through awareness, education and action! First we make people aware of other options and opportunities, then we educate them on what and how they can reach their highest potential, and finally we give them action items to make it a reality.
Please join us! We'd love to welcome YOU to the Four Seasons Oils Team!
