Hi friends and future friends! My name is Shirley (aka Sam) Reul, and I am a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, Runner & Cancer Survivor.
I was born in Suffolk County, England at Bentwaters Air Force base (about 80 miles northeast of London and 10 miles east-northeast of Ipswich). I bounced around a bit, as an AF Brat and it wasn't until my dad retired (after 20 years), while stationed at Patrick's Air Force base in Cocoa Beach, Florida, that we settled down. In 1974, we moved to Palm Beach County where I lived out my youth. In 2001, I married my husband Eric (best friend) and in 2005 we decided to move to Sebastian, Florida. That's where we've been since, and I don't see us ever moving because it is simply paradise!
I LOVE being a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate where I get to educate others about Essential Oils and their life-changing benefits, including how they can improve overall nutrition, wellness and health.
It wasn't until I was diagnosed with uterine cancer and had a full hysterectomy, that I was introduced to essential oils and I will forever be grateful. The first oil I tried, which will always be my favorite, was Peppermint.
Before my cancer diagnosis, I heard people talk about essential oils, but never really paid attention, blowing it off as some new trend, not realizing their history and purity. After my surgery, which removed all the cancer (thank God), I was pushed into menopause, which came along with hot flashes. As a cancer survivor, meant I couldn’t take synthetic estrogen/hormones so I started to research “all natural” remedies to make my hot flashes go away. A friend introduced me to Peppermint essential oil and being curious I decided to give it a try. Through my research, I became more and more intrigued and learned that if you get your essential oils from a trustworthy company (and where you get them does matter!) then it couldn’t hurt to try something all natural from the earth. Sure enough, after a few nights, my hot flashes became less and less and so my journey started, which has led me to where I am today.
I can’t express in words how thankful and blessed I feel. Since my journey started with Peppermint so many things have changed in my life and I am so much happier and healthier, hence the name Live Happy Healthy. I use essential oils for so many things from emotional balance to removing toxic cleaners from our home, to a whole new skincare line, and most importantly dōTERRA’s supplements. I have so much more energy and feel awesome. My new health and focus on life is what inspires me to share with others why just making a few changes in your life, can ultimately change your and your family’s health and happiness.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to hear from you soon as there is no better time than NOW to start feeling great!
