About Me – Why Essential Oils


Welcome! Fellow Browsers and Readers!  

Just a little about me and why I choose essential oils.

About Me - Why Essential Oils
Kathy and Justice

Why Essential Oils Marketing?  First of all, I am an avid animal lover who has worked with several rescue groups and shelters over the years.  My family includes me, hubby, two dogs; Justice & Milah, both Border Collies; three cats, two outdoor and one indoor.  Having been born and raised on a farm in the South, being outdoors and working with plants and animals has been a passion of mine since childhood.  Recently, I discovered essential oils.  

Wow!! Now I know why they are so popular and so many people are using them in so many different ways!  

As a result, the goal in publishing this site and the blogs is to educate and help others who are interested in learning more about using natural solutions for common household products, beauty products, and our environment.  Finally, blogging exclusively and making money doing it is my ultimate goal!

1. Do you have a certificate or are you otherwise certified?

No, I do not have any certifications in Aromatherapy.  Readers of this blog will find an overview of many of the products that are available out there in an objective, and neutral way.  Much of the information out there on the web is almost always biased towards one brand of oils or another, so I’m really just trying to offer alternatives, in addition to other resources I’ve found in my learning journey.  

If you’re looking for more information about aromatherapy certification or schools, check out the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.  I do recommend one education resource for Aromahead Institute, as she offers some free courses and webinars.  Check out that source out here:

2. Do you sell essential oils?

No essential oils of any kind or brand are sold on this site. I am not a Young Living Distributor, but I do have a Young Living account which I use to purchase Young Living oils or blends which I like or use at a discount.  You can find out more about this on my Finding Quality Essential Oils page. Anyone who is interested in joining can send me an email and more information will be provided.  The purpose of this website is for educational purposes about the use of essential oils for the overall health and well-being of both humans and pets in our everyday lives.  

3. What essential oil company would you recommend?

One of the most common questions that are asked!  Personally, variety is still the spice.  Therefore, I try to objectively compare the different brands as much as possible and read reviews. 

Overall, you can’t end up going wrong, even if you end up not loving essential oils.  Click on this link, and it will take you to a some very inexpensive starters kit from Eden’s Garden.  They offer FREE shipping so if you just get a couple of individual bottles and start with adding a few drops of whatever oil you choose to your bath or massage oil you might be surprised!

4. Can I contribute to your website?

Guest blogs are welcomed here!   If you have Information you would like to share with others, shoot an email to kathy(at)goldlanternmarketing.com.  I would love to hear from you!
