Marla Enhelder, PhD

Hello! My name is Marla and I am an Essential Oils Educator, Natural Health Coach, and Business Mentor.

The other super important roles I play in life are that of wife and mom.  I have been married to an amazing man (Dorian) for 7 1/2 years and we have 2 incredible children (Karsten and Kinley).

I have been extremely passionate about health and wellness for as long as I can recall. I even dabbled in essential oils while I was in college, but really only used them for their smell. I had no idea that they had “healing properties”.

My Early Journey

My journey with essential oils started when my friend’s life completely and totally changed after using essential oils for her son’s digestive issues. He was 12 months old, had been on 12 different antibiotics, and the doctors were recommending 10 biopsies to see what was going on inside of him. They had even suggested the possibility of a feeding tube for the rest of his life. That is when she sought other alternatives and found essential oils. In 4 months he healed completely…no more antibiotics, no biopsies, and no feeding tube! The power of essential oils gave his little body exactly what it needed. My dear friend knew I was having issues with sleep and headaches, so she shared some essential oil samples with me. I figured that I had nothing to lose! I was tired and worn out. Not from just having two small children, but due to the fact that I could not fall asleep (even with nightly shots of Nyquil AND over the counter sleep medicine). When I finally did fall asleep (around 2:00 am) I would wake up continuously. Obviously, my sleep was totally wonky. I was a groggy mess all day and unable to be physically or emotionally available for my family. I also have had chronic headaches for the past 15 years and have been to several professionals to try to “fix” me: Primary Care Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors, Neurologists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, etc. Nothing helped me long term. I can happily (okay, ecstatically) tell you that essential oils have given my body exactly what they needed to heal both for my sleeping issues and my headaches!

Issues with My Daughter

In February of this year, my daughter began getting having multiple ear problems. This, in turn, led to a series of doctor visits, trips to the after-hours pediatric urgent care, and round after round of antibiotics. Besides hating to see her in pain all the time and having her little one year old body be treated with antibiotics, I was starting to get really worried that she was going to need tubes in her ears. As soon as I had my own oils, I began giving her Melaleuca and Lavender at the first sign of an ear issue. Needless to say, the problem with her ears was GONE by the next day! Once they began working for my sleep issues, head tension, and Kinley’s ear concerns…I knew there was something to them and it wasn’t just a fluke! As a result, I began exploring the many ways to use them in our home. Now we use them every single day as part of our healthy lifestyle routine. They are used in our cleaning products, in our personal care products, and in the food we eat. It is nice to know that our products are non-toxic, natural, safe, cheap, and more effective in comparison to what we were doing! When problems arise, whether it is physical or emotional, my essential oils are my “go to”.

My Passion

Needless to say, I have fallen in L-O-V-E with essential oils. I can honestly tell you that I feel more empowered now as a mom than ever before. Rather than feeling helpless when my children are under the weather, I now have something I can turn to that will support their little bodies and give them what they need to help jumpstart the healing process.

My intention is to provide you with the information that you need to improve the health, happiness, and prosperity of your family through essential oils and natural solutions.

Additionally, I would be delighted to work with you to determine where you are currently as it relates to your health and wellness, where you want to be, and how we can get you there using natural solutions! You can either call me at 480-319-5494 or e-mail me at marla@takechargemama.com
