Steve tells his story

The experience that led me to conclude that no matter your health situation Essential Oils can help. 

My life was changed by Oils that's where Your Oil Tools got its name!

The whole story!


In 2011 our family went through the biggest trial we had ever faced, but it paved the way for what became Your Oil Tools.

It was a typical February day. I was working, as usual, plowing snow! I owned a landscaping company and this winter was harder on the equipment than years past, so I had the joy of replacing the transmission on my truck.


Not thinking anything of it, I picked up my truck that morning and drove it straight to the property where I was going to get my trailer and equipment. As I was hooking up the trailer, the truck burst into flames. I was shocked and didn’t know what to do.

I immediately grabbed my cell phone and called 911. The fire was spreading so fast, there were streams of fire where the gas was leaking onto the ground and coming into the cab of the truck. I reached into the truck and attempted to turn it off but nothing happened. The truck continued to run even while I held the keys in my hand. My brain went to the worst-case scenario!

From working on the property, I knew there was a fire extinguisher on the other side of the building, so I ran as fast as I could to grab it. I discharged the first extinguisher and then ran to get another. By the time I emptied the third fire extinguisher the first responders started arriving.


At the time I couldn’t think of anything, all I was trying to do was save my equipment in the building that I was parked next to. Less than 30 minutes later I blacked out and was in an ambulance on my way to the hospital. I was greeted at the trauma center by numerous doctors and nurses ready to help me.


Unfortunately, in the process of trying to turn off the truck and put out the fire, I was exposed to toxic fumes that left me with chemical burns to my lungs and smoke inhalation.


We spent almost 2 years trying different treatments with doctors and specialists but nothing seemed to be working. The medication was causing more damage than good. I tore my Achilles’ tendon from being on steroids too long. I spent several months on the couch because I couldn’t breathe with my oxygen saturation at 60%. It was the absolute worst experience of my life. I was completely at my wit’s end and truly desired to return to normal life and was willing to try almost anything.


One day my wife brought home some essential oils she had been given from a friend. My first reaction was to tell her she was crazy and her friend was also. I was hesitant to try them to say the least. Almost every day on my medication, I got a headache that just wouldn’t quit. With just a few drops of essential oils on the back of my neck and my temples, my headache started to dissipate and within 20 minutes I felt better.

I couldn’t believe it was working so I decided to keep using them. Within a few days of using essential oils, I noticed such a big difference. I was starting to feel better, had more energy overall, and my lungs were starting to open up a bit more.


I started using natural health solutions, changing my diet, and using essential oils regularly. Over the last 10 years, I have learned how to manage my health issues naturally. It would be gimmicky of me to say it changed my life but it did! That's why I’m so passionate about what I do.

This experience led me on a path I would’ve never chosen for myself, but it brought an understanding you can’t get anywhere else. I’m truly grateful to be alive and have the opportunity to run a company that genuinely cares about everything we try to accomplish.
