So, welcome to The Essential Home. I am Emily and I am the face behind The Essential Home.
I am a Melbourne girl who loves the beach and summer. If it could be summer all year round I would be the happiest girl around. I love to travel and explore new places. I don't think there is any better feeling than going to explore a new place, even if it is just down the road. I love cooking, especially when I get to share it with loved ones. Sharing meals with family and friends is honestly one of the most fulfilling and beautiful things to do. I am no Masterchef, but I'm not afraid to try a new recipe, even if some of the time it ends in complete disaster! On the weekends you can generally find me brunching with friends, catching up with family, at the gym or going on an adventure with my fiance.
So how does The Essential Home fit into this? The Essential Home started as a humble little side project on Instagram to be able to share my experiences with doTERRA. For those of you who don't know, doTERRA is an essential oil company which produces the most potent and pure essential oils you can find in a sustainable and ethical way. I'll do a proper post on doTERRA in future posts. Back to the original question, from this little Instagram side project, I realised I wanted to share more than just essential oils. I realised I enjoyed writing and sharing about other things like mindfulness, travel, cooking, family, friends and so much more. I also loved the idea of being able to share like minded people's stories and local businesses. It is because of this that The Essential Home blog came to be.
So welcome on this new adventure, I hope you enjoy what I have to share and please don't be a stranger!
