Will you join me for a few minutes to explore who I am, who you are, and what we can share with each other?

I am going to start with five “facts” about me that define who I am and what I believe in. THEN, I hope you will share with me the same about you!

1. My roots reach back to the dark, rich soil of Siberia (YES! It is very cold, but also amazingly beautiful). My mother (a pediatrician/neurologist) and father (an engineer) raised my two younger sisters and me with a strong preference for the natural remedies that Mother Earth so lovingly provides. Even though my mom is a doctor, we grew-up with garlic, onions, fresh milk, honey from our friend’s beehive, homemade jams, and herbs from our garden and wild fields as our first line of defense against illness. And with temperatures often hitting -30, you bet we needed a strong defense!

My love and appreciation for the healing gifts of Nature sprouted very early!

My parents “invited” my sisters and me to help in our sizable garden. We had about 1/3 acre of veggies, berries and greens, and almost a full acre of potatoes. Although I never learned to love pulling weeds, I sure did love the fruits of our labor! We had a root cellar filled with fresh and bottled foods that my mother preserved for our family. Healthy food grown in nutrient rich soil is my favorite “medicine,” and this food, combined with the hard work to produce it has contributed to who I am – I have great skin, healthy nails and beautiful hair. In addition, my grandparents had their own livestock, fed with healthy food they prepared themselves. My Grandpa and Dad would gather wild field grass every year for the pigs, chickens and rabbits. (My dear husband even helped dad gather Puchka for the pigs one summer). If you have never slept on a bed of fresh dried wild grass you don’t know what you’re missing! This is heaven!!!! I enjoyed it very often during late summer as my grandparents had their own storage area filled with mountains of hand picked dried wild grass.

Healthy food grown in nutrient rich soil is my favorite “medicine”.

2. My family was not rich with money or material things, but my childhood was rich with countless memories of the reward that comes from hard work! I was accepted into a very prestigious and highly competitive five year Bachelor Degree program in Marketing, which I completed in 2 ½ years. Then my career took a few funny and perhaps ironic twists and turns. I had amazing experiences in marketing and sales working for the distributors of (very well known) perfumes/cosmetics, tobacco, pharmaceuticals and vegetable oil / mayo.

The irony is that I don’t use make-up or perfume, I don’t smoke, I hate drugs / pills, and I very rarely eat mayo (only once in a while as part of a traditional Russian salad). How funny is that?

3. I loved the challenges and opportunities that I encountered in those jobs, but as I look back, it is clear to me that I was searching for something that I could believe in and love! Now I see the answer so clearly – my deep love for nature, natural remedies, and a healthy lifestyle started with my first “sip” of mother’s milk and now permeates every cell in my body. Finding this answer, however, required a journey through difficult circumstances.

The universe (and perhaps more than a few guardian angels ) brought me together with an amazing man, and convinced me to leave my beloved Moscow to marry Paul (you really should visit sometime – seriously, I would love to take you for a tour of my favorites – just give me a call!). I moved to America, and in spite of my ongoing work with a personal trainer, in just 6 short months I gained a lot of weight and went from a size 8 to size 12/14. I was devastated, it was a disaster. I got depressed and fell into eating a lot of tiramisu…like, really…A LOT!!! I continued to work hard at the gym, but didn’t see any progress (the tiramisu probably didn’t help).

This was when I started looking at food labels, and I COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT I SAW!

4. From that point on it became my personal mission to eliminate as many harmful foods from my home as possible. It took time and a lot of work to clear the chemicals and garbage out of my home and out of my body, and I still have some weight to lose, but I felt so much better, and I started to share my successes with anyone who would listen. Do you have any idea how many drugs and antibiotics are sold in the U.S. each year? Do you know how many of these chemicals are used in the production of the food that you eat every day? This is I.N.S.A.N.E!!! Chemicals may temporarily suppress symptoms, but they do NOT promote health!

My dear husband works out in the weather a couple days a week all winter long. To help him get through cold and flu season I “fixed-him-up” with garlic necklaces to wear to work, chopped onions that I put on his chest to clear the congestion, herbal tea that was hand picked by my parents in Siberia, and REAL honey.

5. My husband felt a bit silly wearing a garlic necklace to work, but found that the natural remedies really did help (his mom used some of the same things when he was young). Meanwhile, I found another beautiful way to connect to nature. Through more study and hard work I become the proud owner of my own floral business. I absolutely loved bringing blooming beauties to my beaming Brides. I became quite successful. My work has been featured in local and well known national magazines and wedding blogs.

You can still see a sample of my work on my floral website. Although I am no longer creating stunning arrangements for my gorgeous brides, I decided to keep the website live, as it represents a wonderful part of me and of the work that I am proud to have done over all those beautiful years working with the flowers and the wonderful people. This allowed me to more deeply discover who I am and what I want to achieve in my life.

So, how did this journey back to my natural roots lead to essential oils?

Knowing about the harsh conditions that my husband endures, his younger sister invited Paul to try essential oils. He was really skeptical at first, laughing about the “Dr. Aardvark’s Snake Oils!” Having taught research design at the university level, he was well aware of the “placebo effect” and other charming ways to fool the unsuspecting. But he decided to give them a try, and to his surprise, he found that he got sick much less often, and when he did get sick, would recover much more quickly with the help of the essential oils. I was also very skeptical at first. I couldn’t imagine that the essential oils we tried was really any different from the many other essential oils on the market that are often available at a lower price. I was ok with my husband using them, but I was absolutely indifferent to them myself … until I noticed that my hubs started using less and less of the horrible smelly synthetic stuff for his joints. And then I had some amazing experiences for myself. Tough to argue with reality! So I started using my oils regularly, but it took over 2 years before I seriously considered looking at essential oils as a business. Essential oils have opened so many possibilities for me – I love working with people, I love helping people to be healthier and happier, I love sharing my passion for natural beauty, Mother Nature’s gifts and natural remedies. I also love to travel, explore the world, and to make the world a better place.

I associated with the an amazing essential oil company that gives me a chance to do all of this, plus it creates a residual income that leads to financial freedom.
I love the company, the people that I work with, and my amazing friends from all around the world.

My mission is to share this “Gift of the Earth” around the world with great love and gratitude – to promote the physical, emotional and financial health and wellbeing of individuals and families.

Now it’s your turn!!! Don’t be shy – I would love to get to know you better! Let’s be friends, and, if you choose, successful business partners. I would love to explore WITH YOU how we can help you to be happier and to reach your goals, whatever they may be. To become healthier, happier, more financially secure, balanced your personal life – the sky is the limit!

Although I’m not perfect, I am really good at exploring exciting possibilities on our way to finding terrific answers! And, I love getting to know people and exploring their observations about life, health, finances, love and joy!

So now it’s your turn to tell me five things that make you who you are (and who you hope to become.
