An Essential Oils Enthusiast

I love it when a friend shares they met someone they know I’ll love. Don’t you? Well, that is how I heard about Krystin Rose.

This interview was inspired by Krystin’s great story about becoming an essential oils enthusiast. I’ve had many positive experiences using oils, but they’ve never become a staple in my medicine kit. How could I better understand how to use oils in my day-to-day life? And if you are like me and get overwhelmed with a lot of new information at once (or what the financial investment is), I wanted someone who could distill simple ways to begin.

Indeed, it was a joy to meet Krystin. Her warm personality and passion for the world of essential oils made her a beautiful teacher (as you will soon hear).

Community wellbeing has so much to do with our capacity to see and care for one another with people-to-people medicine. While powerful and must be used with reverence and some basic knowledge, plant medicines- including essential oils- are powerful healers. They are just waiting for us to call them by name.


Here are the Main Highlights:
  • Engage in all the ways Krystin uses essential oils throughout her day.
  • I definitely got excited about her tips of rubbing oils onto the bottom of children’s feet to help them sleep at night and the power of a diffuser at home and in the workplace.
  • How we ALL can be resistant to new things that we eventually cannot live without!
  • Putting more personal empowerment into our day and “taking back our health” can look this simple.


Safe Use of Essential Oils. While plants won’t chase us down like a lion in the jungle, they are powerful. If working with essential oils without someone with experience, be sure to review this information.

Note/Disclosure: I did not intend to promote Doterra in this episode. This is simply the company that Krystin is working with.

And finally, Krystin’s contact information.
