I’m Julie, owner of @wefeltthat - we casually started this adventure in 2015 when our son needed a way to keep oils close-by while attending school.      We found that a number of essential oils really positively supported his day living with a sensory processing disorder and anxiety.

We often share stories of when we would use essential oils to associate him with feelings of peace, calm and emotional balance. We too needed...
