Rising Stars: Meet Dreana Nealon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dreana Nealon. 

Hi Dreana, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Of course. In 2015 I went from feeling like the positive and joyful person I’m known as, to feeling extreme anxiety.

I knew what occasional anxiousness felt like but, this was different. It wasn’t occasional. In my brain, I knew it wasn’t rational but, I couldn’t prevent the flooding emotions and racing heart.

As a wife and mother of two, I wanted my family to have their wife and mom back. I wanted myself back! I knew it was imperative to reach out for help.

I tried a couple of things suggested by my primary care physician but, quickly determined it was not the answer for me.

I wanted answers to why I was feeling the way I was. I wanted solutions to get to the root cause and not numb my pain. I continued my search which led me in the direction of essential oils (plant-based medicine). I was skeptical at first. I thought “how can essential oils help me with this problem”.

To this day, I tell others it was a God thing how I was ultimately led to dōTERRA essential oils. The moment I smelled their essential oils compared to what I had at home, I was blown away! I started with a couple of oils that support anxiousness and I was MOVED! I knew I needed these in my life, my family needed them and so did the world!

I found essential oils quickly and powerfully lifted my mood! I also discovered that dōTERRA’s whole-food supplements addressed the health of my gut which was suggested by a natural hormone doctor based on eye-opening bloodwork.

Within 2 months, I started to feel like a new person! My family got their wife and mom back, and I felt better than I ever had! I even noticed stiffness and aches in my body were gone! This is what nourishing your body from the inside out does! I learned a valuable lesson; give your body what it needs to support proper healing so you can thrive.

Now I share the powerful benefits of dōTERRA’s essential oils, clean products, and whole-food supplements with others!

Another modality I found to help me live a balanced and empowered life is consistent Yoga practice. As my Yoga practice grew, so did my mental and physical state.

Asanas (postures) and your breath bring you to the present moment. It’s a way to calm your mind, and move and stretch your body in a loving, effective, and attentive way.

As a yoga teacher, I love serving others with the modalities of essential oils and movement in my classes and offerings!

The world needs more calm, present awareness, and grounding… As a ‘yoga teacher and essential oils educator, it is my pleasure and calling to be a vessel to do so!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
No, it hasn’t been a completely smooth road but, it is still my sweet journey that I share to help others become the best version of themselves. There are always obstacles or better-stated opportunities for growth in life. As an entrepreneur, there are ups and downs. Thankfully, how I serve others is also how I best serve me so I can experience peace and move through challenges with more ease.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I share the power of a healthy lifestyle that incorporates natural solutions of essential oils and yoga to bring calm, grounding, and balance to your mind, body, and life.

I’m most proud of the way I trust my God-given intuition to face fears, doubts, and insecurities.

My intuition led me specifically to dōTERRA and to teach yoga. I had many insecurities about becoming certified to teach yoga. I was in my late 40s when I felt led to teach. I worked through and continue to work through insecurities.

When doubts set in, I come back to my why which is to help others feel this good emotionally and physically.

I believe every home needs these powerful tools and I believe everyone can benefit from yoga. It’s not just for small sizes, young ages, or the most flexible. Getting certified to teach at the age of 50 is one of my most proud accomplishments.

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
I can help others all over implement essential oils over the phone, online, or in person.

I teach yoga locally and I am updating my website to reflect my special events offering bachelorette party yoga and wedding day flows for brides and their bridal party.

I enjoy collaborations with others in wedding and wellness industries!
