Brenda Jones (that's me!) is a happy wife and home-schooling mom to two little girls. Having grown up using "alternative" health care more than "traditional" health care, it's no surprise that life led me here. I worked in a chiropractic/allergy elimination office while completing my degree in behavioral psychology and saw first-hand the lifestyle changes that come with feeling well. After over a decade in the autism community as a program director, diagnostician, teacher, and behavior specialist working closely with families, I retired to raise my first daughter. A lifelong learner, I am "that mom" who is constantly researching and learning new things, diving down rabbit holes to see what is there.
When my older daughter was a few years old, I was formally introduced to the field of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP). Learning how to use the simple, yet powerful, techniques to empower my own life, I couldn't wait to learn how to help others with it. Clearing the toxic crap from my head, my past, and my future and knowing how to set and get my goals... I knew if I could start my girls while they were young, they could grow up leading limitless lives, and what mom doesn't want that? Insert pregnancy and baby #2. I put my trainings on hold while I cared for this new little one and began homeschooling the older one. I also became a dedicated and busy dance mom.
Essential oils entered our lives during my second pregnancy, introduced by my acupuncturist, but it wasn't until a couple of years later that I began learning about all of the amazing benefits of high-quality oils and oil-infused products when I was looking for ways to support my family's health in a few specific areas. I quickly dove down the rabbit hole to discover there was a world of wellness that had somehow slipped under my radar for far too long. It was also during this time that I began learning about all of the toxic exposures we encounter on a daily basis and seeing the effects they were having on our family. What surprised, scared, and saddened me most was to see that products that I had chosen as "safe" and "non-toxic" for my daughters were not safe and were having noticeable negative effects on their health. I was "that mom" who had done the research, and yet, I'd missed something. I am so thankful for those who held my hand down this rabbit hole to bring my little family back to living above the wellness line.
When you know better, you can do better. Well, now I know better and that means I can do better every day. Whether it's a huge change or a bunch of tiny little changes that all add up over time, I am here to help you on your path to knowing better and doing better. Life is a journey and I am blessed that you've arrived here to journey with me as we clear the toxic crap from our homes, from our heads, and from our lives.
