I started my health & wellness journey in 1978.
I was popping over the counter and prescription meds like they were tic tacs and I wasn't feeling any better.
This is when I started investigating yoga, meditation, breath work, herbs, organic foods and gardening into my life and I started noticing positive changes.
Douglas and I married in 1979 and have 2 wonderful daughters - both born at home. And 2 amazing grandchildren.
In 1985, we had the first Certified Organic Herb Farm in East Texas. Besides growing herbs on our farm, we had fruit trees, vegetables, flowers and antique roses. I always loved creating products with herbs and hosting annual events and classes to the public on Health & Wellness.
I continued my education attending classes, workshops, conventions & reading books as well as teaching what I was learning. In 1985 I incorporated essential oils into my life. I loved incorporating herbs and essential oils together creating body care products that I distributing throughout the country.
I was teaching my friends and family yoga......It was time for me to become a Certified Yoga Instructor. I have 3 different yoga certifications. I taught yoga from 1999 - 2009.
In 2000, I was introduced to Young Living essential oils and it was truly the turning point for my health and wellness. I learned the benefits of diffusing, how and where to topically apply essential oils, and why and when to use Vitality essential oils as dietary supplements.
In 2009 Douglas and opened a health food store, ‘Rita’s Natural Food Market’, in New Braunfels, Texas. This gave me the opportunity to continue to educate and share healthy living with all our customers.
In 2018 we chose to move to Frisco, Texas to be closer to our grandchildren.
As I continued to work on myself, mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally, I became a Certified Aroma Freedom Practitioner. This was another stepping stone which gave me the opportunity to release negative thoughts, feelings and memories that were interfering with my dreams and goals.
