no oilsI spent almost 10 years in corporate IT, making good money but felt like I was missing something.  It was a sense of purpose.  I was making great money, but felt like I wasn’t making a difference in the world.  About 2012 I had some severe health challenges.   I went to my doctors and they were able to put a “band-aid” on the problem but weren’t able to address the causation of the issue.  Nobody ever mentioned nutrition, sleep, stress managment, or anything like that to me.  I was lucky enough to find essential oils when searching for a solution to my sudden severe allergies that were prohibiting me from going outside & living the active lifestyle I was used to.  I found that using the lemon, lavender,  and peppermint combination (now available in a seasonal supplement) was extremely effective in supporting a proper histamine response to seasonal threats.   After using the oils for a few months, I finally broke down and tried the daily supplements which really gave my body what it needed to function properly.   What nobody told me is that my body needed different nutrients to function properly.  I was not giving my body the proper support before.  When the  Energy Complex & Cellular Complex came out, I was all for it and it has drastically improved my daytime sleepiness, and sleep attacks have virtually stopped & I have more energy then ever.   This has improved my quality of life across the board in ways I never imagined possible.

I knew that I  was meant to share these incredible healing oils and help make a positive impact in the lives of those around me.  I have since been a keynote speaker at many events, expos, & wellness centers throughout the world.  I look forward to being your guide on your natural wellness adventure and seeing what essential wellness can do for you :)

Olivia Pisaretz

Hey there my name is Olivia Pisaretz! I am so excited to help you explore the power of Essential Oils and how they can support you in your journey to ultimate health. My mother Ruthann Pisaretz and I discovered essential wellness and have never been the same since. We feel confidant in our approach to help individuals in all areas of their health and wellness due to the quality and integrity this company provides. Having had many digestive issues, seasonal threats and occasional sadness during the winter I have found all natural solutions through these products and they have changed my my life in so many positive ways. Having been raised on holistic alternatives when it came to medicine and food I would avoid synthetic options to deal with my issues. Most of the time I would just live through stomach pain from digestive discomfort and lay in my bed most hours of the day when dealing with sadness. My seasonal sinus discomfort  would last for two weeks or more every six months. I knew the negative effects from using synthetic options and avoided them at all costs. Once I found essential oils I felt the oils were the first option that was safe enough to use to support these issues. The results were more than I could have ever imagined. With some the effects were and still are immediate but with others consistent use and patience has been key. It is always well worth the wait because I no longer experience seasonal discomfort, my digestive system is much healthier and the oils have helped me control my emotional issues on a daily basis. I feel obligated to share my experience with others, to give them information that could help them become self empowered when it comes to their health! I am looking forward to supporting you, your friends and your family on your journey to ultimate health!
