Green Living with Tee

Oct 17, 2022

Nanette Tripi Luczak was born and raised in Western New York and was introduced to Essential Oils over 7 years ago. Nanette became a Wellness Advocate with doTERRA and began sharing essential oils with her friends and family by offering free classes where she teaches people all about the benefits of using essential oils and the benefits of removing toxic chemicals from their everyday home uses.

In this episode Tee and Nanette will discuss this journey while giving listeners an array of helpful essential oils tips and recipes to help with their laundry, cleaning, and overall wellness. Nanette shares what to look out for when purchasing essential oils and what types of oils work best for certain conditions or even moods.
