Cassidy Lynn, Founder of Essential Principles
Certified Holistic Health Coach + Wellness Educator and Speaker
Call me crunchy. Call me granola. Whatever label you want to put on it, I LOVE living a natural life. The discovery that there was an alternative path while pregnant with my second little guy lead me to where I am today. Knowing that I could become empowered to take care of my family's health needs, increase our sense of well being and ultimately the JOY we experience has been invaluable.
Passion + Purpose
Part One: The last two years, I have been able to turn my purpose and mission in life into a successful business supporting others to finally accomplish their health goals. I provide natural solutions and tools to help people address health concerns, achieve their wellness goals and let go of what wasn't working. Alongside that I'm given the opportunity to empower them with education so that they can be their own healer. "I can't do your push ups for you, but I can show you how!"
Part Two: Something kind of magical happens when you come out of the fog of feeling like junk everyday. Every sense is heightened. Your skin glows. You radiate joy and positive energy. Then it hits you. This MUST be shared! We all have people in our lives we love and cherish, why wouldn't we desire for them to feel as good as we do now? The flip side of Essential Principles operations is teaching people how to do what I do. Giving someone a path to financial freedom and a platform to create a valuable asset of residual income doing something that they are already doing. I guide, lead, mentor, educate and empower hundreds of people to create a pipeline of income. I am always looking for select individuals who must meet a certain set of qualifications to join our team to maintain the culture of the Essential Principles Leadership Team. We are strong, we are passionate and we empower. (We also have a lot of fun!)

My life at a glance:
Married seven swell years to Adam. My quipster and heart. Two boys. One girl. Maverick is my empath. Alister my merrymaker. Posey is my joy giver. If joy is potent fuel for the soul, then my family could launch a rocket ship.
Hankerings, crushes and affections include:
E a t s. Like really good, innovative, fresh food. E x p l o r i n g. The great outdoors or what makes someone tick. C r e a t i n g. Crafts, dinner, babies, messes. I n s p i r i n g. Be it by example or by support, this is the kind of gritty work that gives me goosebumps. G r e e n e r y. A peek into my home might make you suspicious I'm a crazy plant hoarder. G u i l t y P l e a s u r e s. The Office, Gilmore Girls, donuts, martinis, cat videos. And lately I've been attempting to learn how to skateboard. We'll see how that goes.
How Did I Get Started With Essential Oils?
I wasn't always passionate about natural living. I even judged moms and women who chose natural birth during the early years of motherhood. <Insert foot in mouth here!>
Then, like maybe yourself, I got curious. What I knew and was using for our health and well being wasn't working.
I struggled most of my teen and young adult life with extreme feelings of sadness and anxiousness. Energy was something everyone else had but me. I could see that my children were missing out on the best part of me, but I was so drained I had hardly anything to give them.
When we became pregnant with our second baby our family had made many changes in our lifestyle. We were eating clean organic food. I was active at the gym, used many different natural remedies and we were doing our best to use the tools God gave us to take care of each other. But it wasn't enough.
During the summer of 2013, I became pregnant again and suffered a miscarriage. After the miscarriage, my body was depleted. I had a traumatic miscarriage where I lost over half of my blood supply and it took weeks to recover from physically.
Emotionally, I couldn't recover. Something felt wrong inside me. I was so down, regular activities were difficult, life was difficult. No amount of green smoothies, kick boxing classes or chocolate was going to solve my problems.
I knew that if I didn't make a radical change soon, our family was going to suffer immensely.
For the past six months, an old friend had been inviting me to essential oil classes. I was curious, but skeptical still. Which is funny to me now because I was open to so many other forms of natural solutions already. Most direct sales or network marketing companies had products that I had just never found to be of very high quality or worth the price. So I doubted that doTerra would be any different. I put off the invitation.
It was September, about three months after my miscarriage that I finally said "Enough!". SOMETHING needed to give!
I attended my first class and was simply blown away by what I had learned about doTerra's essential oils. I had a few bottles of essential oils I bought at a local health food store for head tension while I was pregnant with my second child, but I had NO clue how precious they were. How powerful and effective they could be. Or that what I had thought was a pure bottle of Peppermint oil was actually synthetic. I was a seasoned label reader by then and couldn't believe how easily I had been duped by store bought oils.
There was the answer I had been looking for what felt like my whole life, simply in the living room of a friend. I learned that doTerra's quality was unmatched by any other oil company and the proof was when I compared them to other oils I had used before.
I'm a researcher. I'm conscious of what I put in and on my body and even more so on my children. I did my homework on doTerra, like you're doing now. The integrity of this company is real and more than I could've hoped for.
That night after my first class, I felt hope. I finally believed that I could overcome my health struggles and finally feel normal. Balanced. Energetic and joyful. I also wanted to kick myself for waiting so long to learn more about them. I so wished I had started using them months before when I needed something for my emotional and hormonal support.
I signed up with a wholesale account at the next class and brought my mom along with me. Within a few months of starting the Lifelong Vitality supplements and using various oils, my life was completely different. It was like waking up from a fifteen year fog and seeing colors for the first time. I had never felt THAT GOOD.
The passion to help others is a Divine gift from my Creator. I couldn't experience these joyful gifts of nature and not share. Other people needed to know that their life could be different too. I knew I wasn't alone in my struggles. I've been sharing these precious oils and natural solutions since then. It's my calling, my passion and my purpose.
I've been privileged to have a front row seat to witness others lives change as well.
