how he stopped chasing sleep

When doTERRA essential oils were introduced to me they were for my husband. He had been chasing sleep for several months and all aspects of his life were being impacted by the lack of a good night’s sleep. Mood swings, loss of appetite, little to no energy, falling asleep at work (yikes!), and generally just feeling like BLAH.

We started with a diffuser and some lavender. After just a few nights of commitment to the oils he experienced big changes. He was able to go to sleep quicker and stay asleep longer. This in turn sparked my passion for researching and so began my study of sleep, the oils and oil combinations to support a restful night’s sleep.

We branched out from just lavender to include a lavender/vetiver combo which packs a great night’s sleep punch! We also incorporated a rollerball blend of frankincense, bergamot & cedarwood which we roll on the soles of our feet and massage in before bed. Talk about off to dreamland….

I used to think I slept “fine” until I started incorporating the power of essential oils into my nightly routine. A definite game changer. I sleep more soundly than I ever have in my life. The ripple effect of a good night’s sleep impacts all areas of my life. More energy and a better immune system to boot.

It’s been two years plus and I can tell you that this has changed his life and of course it has impacted mine as well… no more grumpy hubby! This one small area, sleep (maybe I should say BIG area) was just the beginning for us on our oil journey. I always share my husband’s story with people I meet because more often than not, someone is chasing sleep and it just doesn’t have to be this way.

my story

I’m Leslie Windheuser and I am the founder of pureoils4life.

I am a daughter, mother and wife as well as a full time educator. I grew up in the midwest and enjoyed every moment of being outdoors after a long winter. This sparked my lifelong interest and study of plants and the power that nature holds. I love being outdoors surrounded by nature with the sun on my face.

Life gets us so busy and we sometimes lose touch with the inner soul tugging that happens when we are young which is exactly what happened to me. I always felt like I was destined to do something really meaningful and good in this life, but was unsure how. I got married and started a family and am a proud mama of four awesome children.

One day after countless doctor appointments and sleepless nights and still no answers I decided that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was feeling “run down” and had had countless sinus infections, colds, bronchitis and eventually walking pneumonia. The doctors could only offer limited relief and no real answers as to why my body was not able to fight off infections.

And so I felt drawn to find my own answers and that somewhere, somehow there was a solution!

I always felt drawn to finding my own solutions, researching, and learning and all of this came together when I was introduced to essential oils. The little brown bottles that showed up in my life not only healed my body, mind & soul but they have opened that doorway back to me and my passion to do meaningful work in this lifetime.
