Meet Anne Bogensberger
I have always wanted to help people and the environment since I was young, like when I raised money to feed the homeless by collecting spare change from my friends' parents. Recently, my stepdad reminded me of a time when I placed post-it notes all over the house saying, “We recycle in this house.” I remember asking my parents if we could purchase a recycling bin for our home (this was before recycling cans came with your trash can)!
A few months before one of my son's third birthday, I learned he was severely allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. For a few days, it was debilitating. This was my child and I couldn’t help him. After the initial denial, the family rallied. We began reading food packaging, medicine labels, even labels on everyday items like shampoo. Did you know Duraflame logs have peanut shells in them? Luckily, I've read the label and now I know that when we are playing at the park and my child says something smells like smoke but different, we have to leave. It was in this process of learning about food allergies, I came across essential oils. Several of the medications prescribed by our doctors have peanut oil in them. I wanted a more natural solution.
From there my passion blossomed. I began using natural products like homemade lotions infused with DoTERRA essential oils to help with their eczema. I love diffusing lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oils for seasonal allergy support, or rolling DoTERRA’s OnGuard blend and oregano essential oils to boost my immune system when I'm sick. When my child comes crying to me with a debilitating migraine, I put peppermint on the back of his neck. I've also started dabbling with using essential oils as perfume - my husband is sensitive to fragrance, so this has been great for him!
Like you, I am busy! I work outside of the home at a Fortune 100 company. I am a mother who works at keeping up with her children at school and their extra-curricular activities, as well as a loving wife. In this journey we are on, I started wanting something for me. What started as a hobby has grown into a mission to help others. Join my sisters and me in living a journey to a more chemical-free life. We are here to help you get started on your revolution!
