About Me

Welcome! I’m Melissa. Mommy blogger and Essential Oil Educator. I created Mommy Essentially as a place to learn about natural health practices and healthier,happier living. My goal is to empower others to minimize their toxic exposure and take a holistic approach to their well-being.

I try my hardest to keep my family healthy and happy (as we all do). In today’s world it can be so challenging to live a more natural and holistic lifestyle. It’s next to impossible to avoid the thousands of chemicals most of us encounter each day.

Essential oils have become my passion. I love learning about all of the ways they can support our body, mind and emotions. It’s so wonderful to be able to help people feel better and live happier lives. It’s also great to work with a company that not only provides the highest quality oils but also has an amazing business model that supports communities and the economy around the globe.

My partner Chris and son Hudson are the loves of my life. I am so lucky to be a stay at home mom and spend each and every day with Hudson. He is an adventurous, spirited, kind and curious 16 month old. He keeps me on my toes and reminds me to laugh, play and look at the world with wonder and amazement. We also have an Australian Shepherd, Riley, and are often out exploring! We are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy hiking, biking, skiing and snow shoeing regularly as a family.
