# FAVOURITE ESSENTIAL OILS

Hi, I’m Annabel. 

Why would you want to know a little more about me? Well maybe you might be a little bit like me.  

My story

My life’s journey has taken me on some interesting travels; from being a lawyer, wife, life coach, Hashimoto’s patient, mother of 3 boys, foodie, mediator, food blogger, author and now essential oils advocate.  While this life’s journey has been adventurous and colourful, I’m now realising that all these twists and turns have been developing my passion for “wellness” and being the best version of myself, in my world and helping others in the same way.

I have always enjoyed helping other people – it’s just looked different in different stages of my life. I started out working as a lawyer (because I got the marks and didn’t know what else I wanted to do). I wanted to help people differently, and as I look back, the stress of working in law wasn’t good for me and would have been bad for my health in the long run.  I set up my own business called Living Edge Life Coaching and found myself helping others achieve their goals.

My Wellness Journey

When I was 23 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s – an auto-immune thyroid disease. This has been pivotal to shaping my life personally and professionally.

 I have always loved cooking and I have always loved food!!!.  My mum and family are all fabulous cooks and a social get together loaded with fabulous food is a common occurrence in our house!!! This has been handy as food has made a massive impact on my health.  

As my knowledge and quest for wellness for my own health has grown, I’ve realised how important it is for my health, that wellness be a lifestyle. It’s a long term thing that encompasses so many aspects. Food, stress, sleep, lifestyle, relationships, personal growth.

About 10 years ago I flirted with gluten-free paleo style food to try and support my general health but then committed to it full on.  However this meant I had to re-learn how to cook in a way that I didn’t feel deprived. What Annabel Cooks began as a fun way of recording my cooking – initially for my family but then I shared it with friends – and my little What Annabel Cooks Cookbook  has now sold almost 1000 copies making me a best seller (apparently ;-))

In step essential oils

In 2016 I came across doTERRA essential oils as part of this ‘quest for wellness’. I started using them on the recommendation from my naturopath as part of my thyroid support. I quickly became addicted, worked out that you can cook with many of them and could see the business opportunity to incorporate them into What Annabel Cooks.

Over the last few years, my business What Annabel Cooks has become so much more than what I cook that it was becoming apparent to me that my brand needed some clarity and alignment. What I am passionate about moving forward is to empower, educate and encourage women to live a lifestyle of wellness. Wellness in all its forms. doTERRA provides a perfect framework for a wellness lifestyle which is why I am proud to centre my business around doTERRA.

We live our best life when we are WELL. We are well when our lifestyle takes care of all our needs in a holistic sense. Starting with a foundation of healthy real food, adding in essential oils for physical and emotional wellness, having healthy & growing relationships both with yourself and others. It’s living a wellness lifestyle.

I have found for my own life that integrating doTERRA essential oils into my natural health lifestyle has been easy and fun. I love to share my ideas, tips and tricks and make it easy for people ready to get started both for personal use and/or as a business opportunity.

I have a husband who is incredibly supportive of all I do and 3 beautiful boys. You will learn more about them over time as they are my companions on in this wellness lifestyle – sometimes willingly and other times not!!

Working with people who want to help themselves is where I’m at. I like to take action and enjoy working with women who are prepared to do that too.  Do you want to live the best life you can? Be all you can be? Are you ready to take action now? I’d love to help you.

What I do

I help you find essential oils and natural products to help YOU feel calmer, more focused, more energetic, sleep better AND then I teach you how to use them in easy and simple ways. So they become part of your lifestyle. Your natural ‘go-to’ for yourself and your family.

Empower

I am not the expert in YOU. You are. I will help empower you to be able to proactively manage your own wellness lifestyle.  Think of me as being the one to get you started.

I love to work with those who are both ready and willing to take action. Are you ready?

Encourage

By nature I am an encourager. This is part of who I am. I want the best for you. If you are willing to put in the effort, I’ll be there to help you take the leap. To believe in you and for you.

I know what it’s like to feel like nothing will help. I have a chronic illness. I’ve been there (I am there!) but I have great faith and hope that the best is yet to come. If you need a cheerleader in your corner, I’ll be there, but you’ve got to be willing to take action.
