PHILIPSBURG–Christel Horst presented her journey and testimony into discovering the benefits of oils that assisted her with her lifestyle changes in and around her home to an interested audience at the Power of Knowledge lecture series at Philipsburg Jubilee Library on Thursday, June 15.
Horst began her journey with Young Living Essential oils a year ago. She is by no means a doctor, nor can she treat or heal anyone. However, the mother of three and a social worker by profession, currently working as an activity coordinator at White and Yellow Cross Foundation, took a journey and felt the need to share her experiences with the community, hence her presentation in the Power of Knowledge series.
Her presentation was to empower and educate the community about the most powerful part of plants, and trees shrubs with over 100 natural organic compounds that can support one’s body, hormones, brain health, healthy weight, emotions, stress and more. Oils can be ingested, diffused, inhaled, or applied topically, Horst explained.
Horst said she does not need to be an aroma therapist to use oils. “It is time to kick chemicals to the curb,” she said. “Only you can control what you allow across the threshold of your home or into your body.”
The audience welcomed Horst’s presentation. They were quite interactive and interested in obtaining knowledge on how to change their lives with the usage of oils. This became apparent with the many requests she received during and after her presentation.
“It is good to know that you can live a healthy lifestyle based on the benefits that each and every oil on their own possesses,” one interested participant stated.
Through its Power of Knowledge series, the Library hopes to bring awareness and alternatives through various subject matters and empower the community of St. Maarten to become critical thinkers about their health, surroundings and environment.
Horst will return to the Library to do more in-depth lectures, such as, for example, on how to transform your medicine cabinet, how to raise your children in a more chemical-free way, and part two of Change your Lifestyle with Oils.
