You love the idea of natural health, but you get stuck trying to figure out how to make it all work.
You’d be thrilled if you could manage common ailments on your own with natural remedies made from herbs and essential oils, but it all seems so complicated and there’s too much conflicting information out there.
You desperately want your family to enjoy healthy, homemade meals, nontoxic body care products, and a naturally clean house so you can avoid sickness in the first place, but your time and money can only stretch so far.
You know you can’t do it all, but you’re ready to make real progress.
You just need someone to show you how to take those steps confidently, safely, and without the overwhelm.
You’re in the right place.
I believe natural health is a blessing from God that you can start enjoying right now, one step at a time.
Here’s more good news: you have what it takes to do this.
With small, simple steps and the right perspective, you can find a better way to thrive, naturally.
What Our Community Says
Thanks for this great post, Kristen! I wish I would have had a resource like your article when I was first starting out with essential oils many years ago. You’re right… it can feel quite overwhelming!
I have such a strong desire to live naturally and without the chemicals that have grown so common in our lives these days and I am so happy to see that I CAN combine my Christianity with this natural herbalism. Thank you very much for spreading God’s word through this post and for putting me at ease with this new herbalism journey.
This is such a great recipe! I have learned to love the fragrance and health benefits of true lavender.
Finally…someone with some common sense. Thank you! I have been a nurse for 30 years and have such concern about the rampant thoughts that EOs are perfectly safe on every level…it was very refreshing to read your page and realize that this is someplace I can come for reading, information, etc and feel like it’s real. Thank you!
I think you and your blog and your work are important, amazing, and wonderful. I look forward to more from you, I’m sure the more I read from your blog, more of my questions will be answered. Thank you, thank you, thank you for what you do!
Imagine Your Possibilities
For a moment, think about the confidence you crave. Imagine,
- instead of just being interested in natural remedies, you actually use them without fear because you no longer rely on Facebook and Google for advice.
- instead of feeling guilty you don’t DIY everything, you master a few easy, nontoxic cleaning and body products, then learn where to buy the rest.
- instead of struggling to make healthy recipes because it seems so expensive and complicated, you discover that simple, easy, and nourishing can all go hand in hand.
- instead of always doubting your efforts, you realize that God can multiply them, covering over many imperfect areas with even more grace.

A Little About My Journey
I wasn’t sure of much when I became a mom, but I knew I wanted to give my little family the very best care I could. Soon after I hit my own health hurdle and started searching for a better way to live. Natural living was fully on my radar, but I struggled to make sense of it all as our family grew and my responsibilities multiplied.
My mind swirled with all the herbs, essential oils, diets, toxins, terms, and techniques to figure out. Online research and crowdsourced advice from friends often left me more confused or worse, gave me bad results. I needed something better.
So I read and researched and learned until I became an herbalist and aromatherapist, confidently able to care for my home and family. Little by little, I made sense of natural health until it didn’t overwhelm or intimidate me anymore.
I discovered it can be simple, enjoyable, and effective; a beautiful blessing from God! And I want to help you discover the same.
Resources to Help You Along the Way
Have you ever gotten tired of trying to piece together the hows of natural living, but not known who to talk to?
Are you struggling to find natural solutions to a health challenge you face?
I can help.
Your Next Natural Steps coaching clients and Thriving Health consult clients get uninterrupted, personalized attention and guidance from me so they can reach their health and wellness goals faster.
And since I have a passion for solid natural health information, I wrote the book Essential Oils: Separating Truth from Myth. It cuts through 25 common essential oil myths and gives you factual answers instead, taking the hype and confusion out of essential oils.
I am really excited to learn more about essential oils. My family and I are very new at leaving conventional medicine and turning to God given answers for good health. We are eating better and avoiding foods that do us harm and realized that our medicine cabinet needed an overhaul as well. I started to do some research online and there are many conflicting bits of information about essential oils. I’m so glad this book has become available to help keep it straight! Thank you, Kristen.
