Testimonial from Ali:
I have known Synde for a little over a year and am continuing to learn more from this wonderful woman every time I am around her. The extent of her knowledge is vast and her training appears to be the real deal. I now appreciate more than ever the extent of awareness that one needs to have when working with herbs of any kind. Synde is incredibly caring and has a natural remedy for everything. My skin has improved, my heartburn in pregnancy is better, no more cough and my house and yoga studio always smell like a little bit of heaven!
> Most people don't think of calling an aromatherapist for their needs, but with Synde you are getting much more than a woman who knows her scents, you are getting a healer who is dedicated to changing the way you heal yourself.
Thank you, Ali! What a wonderful vote of confidence. I used essential oils, herbs and homeopathy with Ali.
Testimonial from Susan:
"I made an appointment with Synde because I was suffering with aching in my legs. After she asked me many questions, Synde made a salve to rub on. I don't have varicose veins but the aching could have been related to inflammation of surface veins showing on the back of my legs. After just 4 days of using this salve, my aching is very minimal and only if I have been standing or sitting for extended periods of time! Thank you, Synde!!!! Also, a plus was the salve smelled like cocoa butter and vanilla, not stinky alcohol and whatever else is in that cream I used to use!"
Thank you for sharing your story, Susan. I am so glad it helped
It's so difficult to know what to do about hormone imbalance these days. There is so much conflicting information out there. If you discontinue HRT you might get breast cancer or prevent it. Same with heart disease.
I have been holding off discontinuing my use of HRT due to the fact that I have tried in the past with awful side effects. I started to slowly wean myself off of HRT by taking a lower dose, then taking that less days per week. During that time I began applying EndoRelief and Balance as suggested. I am finally fully off the HRT!
I have had no hot flashes or mood swings like I had in the past with HRT withdrawal! The only thing that I have noticed is that my sleep is a little fretful. I have started to spray my pillow with Lavender and used magnesium oil on my feet. Update to follow.
Yesterday, I tripped over the low side of my retaining wall in the front yard and had a nasty fall. My face was scratched and I felt my neck and shoulder pop. I immediately applied lavender to my face, Arnica Oil as my carrier to the parts of my body that were starting to feel sore, then followed with TendaCare to help with the pulled muscles/tendons. I applied Millenia to my neck, shoulders and down my spine. My face looks 90% better and I am just a little sore this morning!.
Today is a rainy, cold day and it has given me pause to contemplate all that is happening around me. My sweet baby twin grandsons were born December 27 at almost 28 weeks gestation and are in the NICU with struggles. I have many friends who have lost loved ones this past year or have fought tremendous illnesses.
It can be overwhelming when you think about all of this at once. Prayer is my number one go to reaction to these things. And without sounding trite, I have to confess the fact that, I depend on my oils to give me comfort and relaxation during these times.
It has also been great therapy for me to help others on their path to wellness. Thank you for the opportunity. My clients/customers are the best!

I tell them that as long as they’re using a therapeutic grade essential oil, I don’t care which brand they purchase.
This really surprises them because there are so many companies claiming that their oil is the only oil anyone should use. Their next question is, “Well, don’t you use Butterfly Express?” I respond that I do, but that there are many brands of therapeutic grade essential oils and if they’ve found one that they love then by all means use it. I explain that my intent is not to sell them an oil, but to help them understand how essential oils can bless their lives and then they can choose which brand to purchase.
Their next question is typically, “Well I thought that XYZ company was the only company that had pure therapeutic grade oils?”
This question really excites me because this is when I really get to educate!
First, I explain that that there are a LOT of essential oils on the market and the majority of them are fragrance grade. Within the group of fragrance grade oils, there is a smaller group of food grade oils, and within the group of food grade oils is an even smaller group of therapeutic grade oils. What this means is that every oil that is therapeutic grade is also food grade but every food grade oil is not therapeutic grade.
... certain oils can only be purchased from certain countries because that’s the only place the plant grows. Every country has a testing entity (think of our FDA) that determines whether the oils are fragrance grade, food grade, or therapeutic grade. What this means is that every company selling that particular oil is purchasing it from the same country and it’s undergoing the same testing before it leaves that country stamped as “therapeutic grade.”
Now, upon arrival at the warehouse, most companies, including Young Living, doTERRA, and Butterfly Express will conduct their own testing to determine if the quality meets their standards. However, one company has registered the phrase “certified pure therapeutic grade” and from a marketing stand point this is brilliant because it gives the consumer the impression that only their oils are the real deal. But what it really means is that only their oils are “Hinckley certified” because only their oils can receive the designation “certified pure therapeutic grade.”
“So why is there such a big difference in price?” This is where it becomes enlightening. :)
Every company selling therapeutic grade frankincense boswellia is purchasing it from the same country. However, when it gets here the company will determine it’s price point based on over-head and profit. Some companies need to mark the price up enough so that their up-lines can all make a profit. They need to make sure they can afford their office buildings both in the US and abroad. They need to make sure the price allows them to take their top dealers on cruises or vacations. And they need to make sure the price allows them to buy a car for the top company seller. The price might even need to cover the company jet.
That’s why I purchase and sell Butterfly Express essential oils. When I purchase a bottle of essential oil from Butterfly Express, I’m paying for the oil and a modest profit. I’m not paying the up-line, I’m not paying for a cruise or a car or a company jet.
The intent of the owner, LaRee Westover, is to get the oils in the hands of the people who need them by making them affordable. Her intent is what really sets this company apart from the others.
Before being bottled and sold, every oil is prayed over. Employees having “a bad day” or problems at home are not allowed to work in the oil rooms but are given other tasks to complete. Why? Because LaRee understands frequency. She understands essential oils.
It’s this commitment to the oils and to the consumer that are the reason I purchase, and sell, Butterfly Express essential oils."
Well, today I had to fly for a family emergency. The person sitting next to me was hacking and coughing away. Good thing I packed a handkerchief that I had sprinkled with leSpiceC! I rubbed it under my nose, on my hands and stuffed it in the top of my blouse so I could breath it in. It might even have helped my neighbor! Flying is usually not fun anymore. People don't want to even say hello to the person sitting next to them, they hog both armrests, you have to pay extra to be able to stretch your legs a little, and someone is always coughing on you! Be prepared...sprinkle your favorite oil on a handkerchief like I did, breath in and escape. Be the better seat mate! Happy oiling! Synde www.butterflyexpressoils.net
I have had a few questions about why "le" is before the names of some of the oils. It is just a way to let the buyer know that it is a blend. A blend is just that; a blend of several oils, scientifically mixed to meet certain needs. Our blends are not diluted with any carrier oil such as coconut, almond, etc. They are pure and therapeutic. Try a "le" today!
I wanted to start out my next blog with a very important oil for me. It's called leInsideOut. I love this oil because I have such a finicky digestive system and it helps calm things down.
INGREDIENTS: anise, cardamom, cilantro, fennel, juniper berry, kanuka, lemon, lemongrass, patchouli, peppermint, tarragon, thyme
AFFINITY FOR: digestive system, stomach meridian
RESONANCE: physical, emotional
APPLICATION: Apply one drop behind the ears for nausea, motion sickness, or morning sickness. LeInsideOut can also be applied over the abdomen either by diluting with a carrier oil or as a compress.
EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: LeInsideOut is primarily considered an oil which works on the physical body. Whenever you use an essential oil, you will be working on underlying emotional roots as well as physical complaints. LeInsideOut can be helpful in discovering and sorting through the emotions underlying the digestive problems. LeInsideOut can help calm the obsessive worry that sometimes contributes to digestive difficulties.
PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeInsideOut improves the function of the digestive system. It helps with upset stomach, belching, bloating, stomach cramps, heartburn, constipation, and diarrhea. LeInsideOut’s ability to be effective for both constipation and diarrhea may seem odd; it is not. Natural remedies work with the body to return systems to balanced and healthy states. They are not the administration of an “opposing” remedy or force. This is true in every aspect of the body and mind when working with natural healers.
LeInsideOut should be used for any bout of intestinal flu or food poisoning. It is useful for most types of nausea, either by inhaling the aroma or putting a drop behind each ear. This blend should be applied over the abdomen for colon problems and for candida overgrowth. LeInsideOut has been useful in the treatment of parasites in animals and humans. For humans, place LeInsideOut on the feet and massage across abdomen. For animals, dilute a few drops in water and massage into soft tissues.
Cautions: LeInsideOut contains a small amount of fennel which is, when used by itself, contra-indicated for use during pregnancy. This is an example of blended oils being safer to use than single essential oils. This essential oil blend is safe to use for morning sickness in the manner described, but proper care, prudence, and judgement should be exercised.

Welcome to Butterfly Express Oils! I am so excited to represent this wonderful company. If you are looking for pure, therapeutic, quality essential oils at wholesale prices, YOU are in the right place!
A little background on how I got started on this journey. In 2010 I had been through my third round of antibiotics for sinus infections, felt lethargic and suffered from chronic diverticulitis. I was watching a TV show where someone was talking about eating real food. I thought I ate real food, but to my dismay, found that I was not. I started small by purchasing my milk and eggs straight from a farm. I also started using raw, local honey as my sweetener.
Then, at one of our WAPF (Weston A. Price Foundation) meetings a nice young lady introduced us to essential oils. I had never really heard of essential oils that much, especially how she showed us to use them. I started to read about them and use them slowly. Ever since then, I have not had another sinus infection! I would like to say it helped with my diverticulitis, but I was too far gone and had to have surgery. I am now using oils and diet to help prevent further damage.
I found that the more I used the oils, the more I enjoyed telling people about them when someone would mention a health issue they were having. My light bulb moment came in 2014 when I felt this was my calling. I work a full time job, so I struggled with the thought of starting a new business. But the pull to help others and share the benefits of these wonderful oils was too strong.
I have been studying essential oils with great determination and my goal is to become a certified Aromatherapist. I am also learning about how to use herbs and tinctures and the ways they work in conjunction with essential oils.
Please let me know if you have any questions about essential oils or anything else you see on this website. I am happy to help!
