    Why Our Family Uses Essential Oils

    Pendleton Family Farm September 16, 2021

    Our family has been an avid essential oil user since 2013 when I joined Young Living. Just like most families, we wanted a different way to treat, heal, and live without always grabbing conventional treatments of medications, cleaners, and personal care products. I had always loved holistic approaches to life, but it wasn’t until I graduated for nursing school, that my passion came full force.  *Please note this blog post…

    May Updates On The Farm

    Pendleton Family Farm May 25, 2021

There is something to always do on the farm and squeezing time in to write (even though it’s one of my favorite things) is difficult. Just this morning as I was filling up waters for all the animals, I kept thinking…
