Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

This post is something a little different. Sharing  one of the new(er) things I am doing in my world.
I recently started a page on Facebook called Possibilities . It is about and for my use of young living essential oils. Here is part of my "why"
In this current day and age we are seeing a trend towards people returning to nature and returning to a more organic way of life. With so much technology and pollution both of the air and of our minds, we are seeking a simpler gentle lifestyle.
People are turning back to ancient ritual, ancient learning and ways of knowing. Using homegrown natural products, making/growing our own food, and looking to the plants and the earth for medicine, and healing. One of the ways we're doing this is the use of pure extracted essential oils.
I have used essential oils for many years, and have reaped great benefit from the natural healing properties. In approximately 2009 I signed up with Young Living, essentially just to get my oils at a discount. I wasn't interested at that time in building a business or networking just wanted my oils.
 I have recently connected with a wonderful group of people who are sharing education, supports, and mentor-ship for those of us who are interested in building community with Young living oils.
 If this is something that interests you , let me know, if not carry on and we will keep talking horses and poetry and life. 
I am just sharing this part of my life with you all as well

I've heard a lot about essential oils over the years and recently on Gentle Giants the draft horse show on RFD, they showed all about the Young Living Farms an their draft horse show. As well as some gorgeous pics of their lavender fields where they grow their own... Absolutely beautiful. Sounds like a good side hustle for you besides the farm an critters.

I still have not got into the business end, just not cut out for that I guess. But I do sell to close friends and family and use them on my critters too.
