Essential Survival Founder - Julie Behling-Hovdal, MA
Julie Behling-Hovdal founded Essential Survival in 2010 with the goal of helping as many people as possible be equipped to take care of their health on a daily basis, as well as in times of chaos when drugs and Western medicine might not be as readily available.
Julie’s passion for helping people be more empowered to take care of their health developed after she experienced debilitating health problems over a six-year period and was able to have her health restored through lifestyle changes and products from Young Living Essential Oils back in 2005. She had a wake-up call concerning the need for preparedness in 2008, and immediately began to see how even a basic kit of essential oils from Young Living could benefit every family.
Julie started a reflexology/holistic healing practice when she moved to Salt Lake City in 2007. Essential Survival combines the power of essential oils and herbs, Julie’s experience helping numerous clients in her reflexology practice, and her passion for and extensive knowledge on both natural healing and disaster preparedness. She is now mostly retired from hands-on healing healing work.
Julie is a Gold distributor with Young Living Essential Oils, member number 853324.
Note – Unfortunately, in September 2014 the FDA sent a warning letter to Young Living Essential Oils concerning YL members making medical claims. I was listed by name in that letter. As a result, I have had to remove the vast majority of my essential oil articles from the internet.
