As a nurse, I have been aware of essential oils for years. I have had colleagues who dabbled in natural medicine. I had always been skeptical. If there was really something to that, wouldn't I have heard something about it in school? Don't laugh, that's really what I thought. Years and added wisdom - I now see that is not how it works. Even nutrition was marginalized - what revenue is there in people being empowered to be healthy? We are fixing people who get sick - not helping them stay well. The medical model dominates health care. That may be largely due to that nurses have forgotten who they are. The medical model is meant to be balanced by the nursing model, founded by leaders like Florence Nightingale and Lillian Wald. That is why I went into nursing, not to pass medicines - but to usher in healing.
I went into nursing because I wanted to serve, I wanted to offer cold water to the thirsty. I had a passion for world missions and taking good news of complete healing to the whole person - those who are created in the image of God, and need to be reminded.
A couple years ago, I was reintroduced to essential oils - gifts of the earth! God created us in His image. When He did that He empowered and equipped us with all that we need to thrive, to fulfill our mission, to commune with Him freely. In these oils I have discovered a practical, beautiful, powerful tool for overcoming so many obstacles. Tools for being well enough - in mind and body - to pursue my calling. I get to help others to find healing. As a nurse, I am empowered to move about with autonomy, mastery and purpose! As a mom, I am empowered to bring this to my children so if they are suffering, they can be reminded that their God is big and He is enough- He has provided for all of their needs.
