Merry Christmas friends!
Today is blog launch day and I am thrilled! Having a blog has been a dream of mine for awhile now. It’s taken a lot of self-love and bravery to officially launch my blog. Good goals and dreams are supposed to scare you, and this certainly does. I’m stepping way outside of my comfort zone in this!
For the past 18 months, I’ve been on Instagram as @youngwholeessential. It made sense to move this brand into a traditional blog. My instagram is a compilation of posts on essential oils, the Whole30/Paleo lifestyle, and my walk with Christ. My blog will be much the same but with a larger lifestyle focus.
What does Young Whole Essential mean?
When I started my Instagram, I wanted it to embody things that described me! Since it’s blog launch day, let’s break down each section:
While I’m literally “young,” this aspect is also a tribute to overall wellness and health. Treating our bodies well is key to living a healthy, vibrant life, and keeping us young! It’s also referring to Young Living, my #sidehustle.
This is in reference to things that make me whole! One thing that makes me “whole” is Whole30. It’s completely revolutionized how I view my health and how I take care of my body. Food is medicine. Food is the answer to health. Whole30 helped me break unhealthy habits with food and embrace overall wellness. Whole is also in reference to my faith. These past few years have been life changing because of God’s grace. Four years ago I would have laughed at the thought of myself writing a blog that references faith! God worked on my heart almost three years ago, and made it quite apparent He was here to stay. My life has drastically changed when I started listening to Him and less to the world around me. It’s made life so much more whole and fulfilling!
This blog is about what I find essential to me. There will be talk about essential oils, because I love them! I’ll blog about my bible study, my favorite resources, and so much more. Basically, anything that is essential to me and that brings value to my life, I’ll share here!
The beauty of Young Whole Essential is that these words are broad and still are true to who I am. I can’t wait to continue sharing what is young, whole, and essential with you.
Some topics you’ll see from me are:

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy your day, and indulge a little!
