Group fosters youth empowerment through essential oils, non-toxin lifestyle
CRYSTAL LAKE - On Halloween night of last year, while most children and teens took to the streets to fill their trick-or-treat bags, a group of 12-year-old girls opted out of this tradition.
Gathered in the kitchen of the home of Crystal Lake resident Aimee Cassell, the group of tweens started an impromptu Q&A after getting a glimpse of Cassell’s essential oils used by her family.
“It was an amazing night,” Cassell said. “They wanted to know all about them, smell them, and know which oil was used for what. I was in awe of their curiosity.”
After a few texts back and forth with Sally Dingle, her friend and fellow essential oil enthusiast, the two formed A Girl’s Purpose, a group meant to foster youth empowerment through healthy choices, emotional support and a non-toxin lifestyle.
“We could see it the night it was born,” Cassell said. “They were hungry for the education behind it. These girls wanted to learn about health, taking care of their body naturally and how to support their emotions.”
