Meet the Lioness

Hi there! My name is Emily Leon and I am The Lavender Lioness.

I have always loved to write – My maiden name is German for writer, now its Spanish for lion. So here I am. The lioness who writes.
Another thing that I love is essential oils! And I am finally at a place in my life where I’m ready to combine these two loves, and get back into writing – to share about my oils and how I use them in my day-to-day life.

But first, a little about me.
I’m 25 years old, I’ve been married since September 2016 to my other half, Alexander, and we live in Omaha, Nebraska. Currently we have one fur baby, a little black cat, Xena.

I have been interested in essential oils for a really long time. The idea of a cute little amber bottle of magical oil that could solve all my problems sounded like a dream. AKA: too good to be true. I didn’t know anyone close to me who used them, I just knew these oilers, whoever they were, were crazy about it.
Welp, sometime around 2013ish, while I was working full time at my local TJ Maxx, they started to get essential oils in stock! Perfect! I was especially interested in Lavender to help me sleep. I’ve always been a light sleeper, and had trouble winding down and actually getting to sleep.

So I got my 10% employee discount on a random bottle of oil and a cheap diffuser.

And they were okay. I enjoyed the smell of them, but for some reason at the time I was not actively pursuing more information about them. There was no passion about them like I’d been hearing other people experiencing.

Then in January 2017, I began getting more involved in some local spouse Facebook pages and I came across a post from a girl inviting us all to a wine and oils party at her house. I was already intrigued by oils, I love wine, and I needed to make some new friends, so I went!

The first thing I did was reach for her bottle of Lavender.

Holy cow.

I didn’t need facts and figures, I didn’t need to know about Young Living’s exclusive Seed to Seal process, my nose and my brain told me “Hey, this is the real deal, pay attention”

I was obsessed. A fire lit inside me and I could not stop thinking about oil.

I got my starter kit as a birthday present to myself in mid February. And I’ve been in love with them ever since. I’m excited, I’m constantly learning, and more importantly, I’m seeing real benefits in my life. I know these little bottles of oil may sound too good to be true, but let me tell you that is not the case. You just need to be using the RIGHT oils.

That’s why I’m here, writing to you. I know these oils can help you, and as a person who naturally tends to have strong desire to HELP, this is something I’m becoming more and more passionate about every day.

So I’m going to tell you right now, you know now that I am a helper 🙂 If you ever have any questions or want help with something please do not hesitate to reach out to me. This is what I love. Young Living has helped me discover my purpose. Feel free to be a part of that ❤

This photo of me you can see at the beginning of this post, was taken at the actual Young Living lavender farm in Mona, Utah. Shortly after taking that selfie, I planted that little lavender sprout in the ground and one day that lavender will be in someone’s bottle of oil. And I hope they feel the same way I did the day I first smelled Young Living lavender.

Hey. This is the real deal. Pay attention.
