MEET THE FOUNDERS
Sarah and Steven Federer are the owners of Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast in Mandeville, Louisiana. They are passionate about educating and empowering families to take their health into their own hands. Their essential oil journey began in 2013 when Sarah was pregnant with their first child. Growing up, Sarah lived at the doctor's office. She suffered from chronic infections, respiratory issues, asthma, depression, anxiety, and various other issues that came with the territory of being constantly sick. It was a never-ending rollercoaster of symptoms and prescriptions. Recognizing that her health was not improving no matter what she did, Sarah began researching natural ways to support her body and the health of her growing family. It was then that she truly began to understand the difference between healthcare and "sick care," and realized she was using the latter.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
Sarah's research ultimately led her on a journey to eliminate toxins from their home and replace them with safe, plant-based alternatives that would support her immune system and restore balance to her body. She dived into the world of essential oils and started using them for everything - emotional support, sleep, immune support, skin issues... If there was a problem, she learned which oils would help. Her health improved with each passing week, and she quickly realized that the essential oil lifestyle was the game-changer she had been praying for. By the time their first child was born, Sarah and Steven had become health-conscious consumers. They decided to raise their children in a chemical-free environment and support their health naturally whenever possible. Today, they have two very healthy, beautiful children who, thankfully, have never suffered from health struggles.
Sarah and Steven’s passion led them to start educating others about essential oils and chemical-free living. When they opened Blue Heron B&B in 2016, they put diffusers, essential oils and information in their guest rooms. As guests began experiencing the oils and wanted to know how they could get their own, Inn With The Oils was born. Today, Sarah and Steven continue to empower people to take their health into their own hands, and help other hospitality business owners adopt the essential oil lifestyle as a part of their business.
