Beth & Gabe Underhill
As homeschoolers, we cherish being self sufficient and empowered when it comes to our families’ education. Learning to use essential oils to care for our families and ourselves enables us to be just as empowered with our wellness. People have used essential oils since Biblical times to restore, nourish, and care for each other. Come and learn how you can incorporate modern essential oils into a practical, healthy, and natural lifestyle. Essential oils can be used to help focus and calm, enhance moods, support immune systems, care for skin naturally, support all body systems, natural cleaning, for beauty products, and much more. With the wide variety of applications and solutions to life’s daily challenges, you won’t want to miss this information session.
Gabe and Beth Underhill live in the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia, where they homeschool their two young boys. Beth first heard about essential oils through a friend, and after learning more started using them. Gabe, the skeptic husband, eventually decided to try them and couldn’t deny the incredible results. Essential oils have blessed their lives so much that Gabe and Beth felt they had to share with other families and now travel around the country teaching others what they have learned.
