About Allena

Hi, I'm Allena! Thanks so much for stopping by our blog about the adventures Jenna and I have had learning about {and loving} Young Living essential oils!

Jenna and I met as auditors for a Big 4 accounting firm. Definitely not the typical place to find 2 pretty crunchy mamas! Between the 2 of us, you've got at least one of us non-vaxxing, extended breastfeeding, baby-wearing, cloth diapering, baby-led weaning, GMO-hating, oil loving mamas! Our husbands complain that the more time we spend together, the crazier we get - and they are probably right!

Anyway, back to me...{grin} I am in my early 30s, married to my high school sweetheart {Brent}, living in my hometown, working, and raising our 2 lovely babies. Our son, Trent, is 4 1/2, and all boy. He loves robots and superheroes and trying my patience. Our daughter, Drew, is 1 and just learning how to get into everything! You can learn more about me and my family on my personal blog HERE.

I would say my journey to essential oils started with Trent. Becoming a mother has made me more aware of the impact of everything we do. Foods, lotions, medicines - it all plays such an integral part in our ability to function day-to-day. It isn't easy in this fast food obsessed, quick fix world in which we live, but I buck the mainstream on a daily basis to be as natural to my body {minus a too-often occasional chai latte from Starbucks} and mind as possible and teach my children to do the same. Poor Brent is along for the journey, even if he is a bit of an unwilling participant in all my 'hippie schemes'!

If you take nothing else away from this blog, I hope you learn to question things for yourself instead of just believing your doctor or advertisers. Hopefully Jenna and I can help you along the way!

Here's to the journey!
