My name is Melodin “Mel “ Trammel. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, educator and essential oil lover. A Registered Nurse of 29 years. I had lost my passion for nursing and worked solely out of financial obligation. Back in 2009 a doula walks into our birthing center with her laboring client, and I had no idea how much my life was about to be blessed and changed forever. I watched how she cared for this woman. These were all the things I had lost from my nursing career. It brought tears to my eyes. The most profound piece was the essential oils she used. I felt as if I could breathe, focus.
