Once she was fully healed, she made it back into the tour and won the 2017 US Open! Something that she had always dreamed of. As a professional athlete, Sloane does a lot of traveling. In one year, she went from (NAME CITIES SHE VISITED). By the time she returned home, she found that she was having trouble falling to sleep. Her mother suggested that she try using doTERRA’s Lavender essential oil.
