7:00 pm: Essential Oils: Changing the Way We Care for our Well-Being
with Danielle Ortiz, Jannina Ortiz and Julie Searle  . Lo 

Did you know there are essential oils to help with focus, impulsivity, mood issues, sleep, immunity, and so much more? Have you been hearing recently about essential oils and you are wondering how people use them and if they really work? Come hear from people who use them successfully to help manage all kinds of health and wellness issues including many challenges you might face every day.


Danielle Ortiz began her essential oil journey 1 1/2 years ago. At first she was skeptical of what they could do. But she quickly lost that skepticism as she witnessed how the oils tremendously helped herself, her family and friends. She is passionate about helping people learn how to use essential oils to improve their physical and mental health. 

Jannina Ortiz is a daughter, sister and Auntie. She is an artist (traditional painting and digital) and loves computers and the various exciting artwork that can be produced with them. You will frequently find her lost in a book. Her greatest desire is to help others relieve and manage their pain, giving them hope and seeing them thrive. Being a sufferer of migraines and Fibromyalgia, she is very familiar with chronic pain. As Jannina is allergic to many medicines available, she had to find an alternative route to taking care of her health. Herbs and teas soon led her to essential oils. After finding much relief from the use of these oils, she decided to join her sister in-law, Danielle Ortiz, in her Young Living journey. Jannina feels grateful that she can share her hopes, knowledge and enthusiasm for essential oils with others.

Julie Searle was born and raised in Prince George's County MD. She attended Eleanor Roosevelt High School and graduated from Towson University with a General Education degree and math minor. She taught Kindergarten for a few years and now works as a Statistician with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. She is married with three boys, 15, 3, and 16 months, and resides in Crofton. Both Julie's husband and older son use oils to manage their ADHD and ODD. Essential oils have so radically helped her family that she feels it is her mission in life to tell others about them.
