Meet Leslie Talley
Greetings! My name is Leslie Talley. I am an actor, wife, mommy of two joyful girls, knitter, and lover of essential oils. I have always aimed to go the natural route for as long as I can remember. Whenever I would have a health problem, I found myself reaching for any natural gift of the earth that I could find. I was convinced that apple cider vinegar was the cure for everything (and I still kind of do!). I am thankful for medicine and that we live in a time that it is available to us, but I also like being educated on natural ways we can turn to first.
I began my oily life in January 2015 with the intention of learning of ways to incorporate the oils into my emotional life and my health, as well as my family’s health. My freebee bottle of Wild Orange essential oil that I received at my first Essential Oils 101 class, was my starting point. I began drinking it in my water and within my first day I was able to see my emotional health getting better. Simply from the Wild Orange EO, I was able to see a difference in my anxiety and my “blues” that can linger for days. I felt joyful, energized, and carefree.
Once I received my Family Physician Kit, I had big plans to see if these ‘little wonders’ would live up to all the hype. My 4 year old daughter had a cavity that the dentist said she would need to have a baby root canal due to its severity. There was no way I wanted my girl to experience that! I did a little research and discovered that I would possibly find success with OnGuard essential oil blend. For three weeks I applied OnGuard directly to her cavity three times a day, in conjunction with fermented cod liver oil, and I was amazed! Her cavity appeared to be lighter in color and her tooth was more smooth. I couldn’t wait to take her back to the dentist. The dentist said she would only need a little filling and definitely NO ROOT CANAL. I. Was. Sold.
Personally, I think my biggest ailment in my life have been my headaches. I have been dealing with them nearly daily as far back as grade school. There was a time I had to get an MRI because my doctor was concerned of there being a brain tumor. Thank God nothing was found, but I still continued dealing with the headaches. If I don’t have a headache due to my sinuses, then I’ll have a migraine. If I don’t have a migraine, I have an exercise induced headache…etc. I would go through a bottle of traditional pain reliever like it was water. I started using PastTense essential oil blend and can probably count on one hand the times I have had to take medicine since first using it. I can't live without this oil for sure. I use it every single day. I can’t leave the house without knowing that it is with me. If I feel a headache coming on, it takes it away almost immediately.
I could share all of my oily love, like how Balance essential oil blend makes me a better person and mommy and how Frankincense made my dog be able to walk again, but I’m trying to keep this brief. All I know is that I believe oils were provided for us to use to the fullest and it’s our duty as humans to take advantage of their amazing benefits! On behalf of myself, my girls, my husband, and even our oily dog we couldn’t be more pleased and blessed by dōTERRA!
