Two things are currently saving my life.
Prayer and healing balms.
Through Scripture, I have learned how to wield the Spiritual weapons we are given, as written in Ephesians 6. I even wrote a book on it. And now? Now I am combining the power of prayer with the healing oils we find peppered throughout the Old Testament. Spices and oils like cassia, cedarwood, cinnamon, frankincense, juniper, hyssop, spikenard, myrrh and cypress.
What are healing oils?
“The healing oils of the Bible are all essential or aromatic. These oils are the vital fluids of plants that are their lifeblood. They are called “essential” because they are necessary for the life of the plant and contain the “essence” of the plant. Essential oils were inhaled, applied to the body, and taken internally by the people of Biblical times. Their benefits extend to every aspect of our beings: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.”
I bought myself a Young Living Premium Starter Kit, not for healing benefits, but because I wanted my house to smell pretty. When my package arrived, I had no idea the plans the Lord had for me! In a short matter of time, I had discovered that these oils did more than make my home smell nice. I found that they were a safer option to that TJ Maxx candle I was burning through in morning prayer (and giving me a headache). I found that if I took a moment to inhale in Stress Away when anxiety crept in, I was able to resist spiraling into a full blown panic, and instead, breathe...while praying, “Come, Holy Spirit Come.” And for my over active mind that kicks in as soon as my head hits the pillow? A little lavender in the diffuser and a rosary in my hand does the trick beautifully.
And it got me to wondering...how many of us are running on a hamster wheel, forgetting to breathe? How many of us are taking care of everyone and everything, leaving our own needs for last? How many of us have been living neck deep in chaos that the thought of stopping and inhaling feels like something we are not even worthy of; something we no longer remember how to do? How many of us are in need of healing?
That is when Saved And Scent was born. You see, when I encountered Jesus years ago, he not only saved me, He sent me. It’s what He does and what we immediately do. After falling in love with my essential oils (and so much more that Young Living has to offer for a toxic free home) I felt called to share what I have found. Because here’s the deal: we are all worthy of wellness. We are all deserving of sweet smelling spaces. And we are all in need of healing. Of course, Jesus is the ONE AND ONLY HEALER. However, diffusing a little frankincense while reading my Bible helps elevate my mind and heart to Him. (Just as you would light a candle to say your prayers) Just attend a Traditional Latin Mass and your senses will be overwhelmed by the fragrant aroma of incense, drawing your attention upward to heaven, knowing without a doubt that you are in the presence of the Holy One. It’s truly the most beautiful thing.
I have finally made the decision to no longer live in chaos; to get off of that crazy train and start taking care of myself. If you are ready to begin your own wellness journey, and would like to learn more about essential oils and their healing benefits, I would love to chat! I work with an amazing team of faith-filled women who are all on a mission to ditch the toxic in their homes and hearts and embrace all natural living.
Will essential oils solve all of your problems and heal every ailment? Of course not. But they will help you take a holy pause; to shift your eyes off of the crisis and back onto Christ...and yes...your home will smell fabulous through it all.

Essential oils are a gift from God. As St. Paul refers to them, “a fragrant offering” as an acceptable gift “and pleasing to God.” (Phil 4:18) I know you will love them as much as I do and can not wait to take this journey to wellness with you!
