Welcome

Hi, if you are new to essential oils or a seasoned pro, you have come to the right place.  My name is Debbie Smith, the owner of The Oil Advantage. I started using essential oils in 2013 after exhaustive visits to multiple doctors and specialists. Relief for my year-round allergies was no small matter. I had tried everything that was available on the market.  As a chemical engineer and former first responder, I understood that not all medicines worked the same way for each person. My body chemistry and its response to any ingested substances were different from even my family’s responses.  I now was on a mission to find something that would work to ease the seasonal discomfort that lasted all year round for me. The research for help started and led me to essential oils.

When I was introduced to the Respiratory blend from my favorite oil company, I still was skeptical about the effects, how it would work and if it would work for me.  I was tired of being a guinea pig for the doctors and any new “cure” or regime that they wanted to try.  I  decided to give oils a try as this is what my grandmother would use when I was sick as a kid.  I often remember her fixing concoctions (some smelled good…others just awful), soaking a washcloth in it and putting that washcloth on my chest or throat when I stayed with her.  The cold or respiratory issues would be gone in one to two days.  I realized that I was rarely sick at my grandparents when I stayed with them.  But when I was home, I lived at the doctor’s office.  Amazing, yeah!

So my journey with oils began and now I am improving my health in so many areas. I have always wanted to be proactive in taking care of my health not wanting to leave it to chance. Being proactive to me meant that I would use the tools, these oils, that God provided to keep my body and health in the best condition possible.

So my question to you is this: What do you want to do in regard to your health? If you are interested in using essential oils, then you are not here by chance. Join me on this journey and let’s see where this road leads. I am learning new things each day and I would love to have friends to share with!
