WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase this female entrepreneur that was guided into her business by a miraculous health event that took place with her daughter.
My name is Amber Fancey and I am a 36yr old Mom of 2 girls ages 6 & 8 who are my entire world along with my husband, AKA my best friend whom I have been with since the age of 16. Our youngest daughter, Lainah was born in July 2012 and shortly after at just 7weeks old became very sick with RSV and Pneumonia. We spent time in McMaster Children’s hospital and thankfully she made a quick recovery because of the incredible nurses and doctors she had to help her. But just 5 months later was a recurrence, and luckily this time she was a little stronger and able to fight through it at our local hospital.
For the following 2 years, Lainah continued to struggle with one respiratory infection after another, hospitalizations, antibiotics and puffers etc. It took the biggest toll of course on her innocent little body, but also on our entire family as a whole. The stress, worry, anxiety etc, and her poor big sister who was also constantly worried about her baby sister and in turn causing her so much that a little one should have to worry about.
In March 2015, I was asked from a friend to attend a dōTERRA Essential Oils Educational Class. I knew nothing about the company or the products. I thought they sounded interesting so I agreed to go.
Little did I know at that time how life changing that decision would be!
I left the class that evening, mind boggled all the the incredible information I was given and having enrolled with dōTERRA as a Wholesale Customer and began my journey with their popular Home Essentials Kit.
My husband supports me in every way he can, but he sure thought I was a little crazy at this time and started calling my new collection “Witchcraft!” (Insert eye roll here!!)
I sure didn’t have much to argue at that point with it being all new to me also!
From that point on I began educating myself with the many uses and benefits of the purest oils in the world, learning about the incredible company itself and their values and expertise with sourcing their oils in the most indigenous regions around the world and in turn leaving those communities much better off than before they started working with them.
As I started incorporating them into our family’s daily lives within our home, my husband was beginning to lose his scepticism and become a believer. Our lives were changing incredibly for the better. Our overall health, immune systems, how we slept and felt on a regular basis was beyond the benefits we thought possible!
We started making all our own cleaners, hand sanitizers, soaps, laundry soaps, after bite sprays, bug sprays etc and began living toxic free!! We even learned how to keep a fever at bay with a blend of just 2 of dōTERRA’s incredible oils!! For the next year we educated ourselves more and more and began sharing information and sampling family and friends so that they could also reek these incredible natural benefits.
The following spring, I quit my out of the home job and opened a home daycare. Three months later our 4 year old started J/K. We were terrified with her previous health issues that she still through the cold/flu season struggled with. All those new germs she was now going to be subjected too and without us there to try and protect her. 🙁
But… with living our new lifestyle and being naturally proactive with our health consistently, that was the FIRST year that Lainah wasn’t hospitalized, didn’t need antibiotics and no longer needed her puffers during the winter months. INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!
Our oils collection serve as our natural medicine, proactive cold/flu prevention, cleaners, DIY’s etc…and we don’t know how we ever lived without them.
And now… it is our purpose in life to share, Educate and Mentor others who want to benefit from these incredible gifts we were lucky enough to have been introduced too, and have the opportunity to live an overall less toxic lifestyle, in turn benefiting the health and Wellness of their families.
