It all started when...
I was getting bad headaches from stress over 10 years ago. I had just started my first "real" job and the stress was getting to me. A masseuse friend told me how much essential oils can support you in different ways, so I reluctantly gave it a try and surprisingly, I did find them very beneficial in many ways, so I continued to use them periodically over the next few years. Fast forward to my days of dealing with MS and ridding my body of all toxins and healing it from the inside out. I was healthy. I was sooo happy to be healthy again. I was determined to completely remove all toxins from our everyday life. The last thing on our list? Household cleaners. So I started researching.
I came across something called Thieves. I knew nothing about it. I knew I loved essential oils and aromatherapy, but that was the extent of my knowledge. After much research and reading TONS of testimonials of ways that essential oils changed lives, I knew I had to give Young Living a try and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Young Living Essential Oils
I had no idea what essential oils could do. Have you ever smelled a rose or jasmine flower and felt more peaceful? Or smelled fresh lemon and felt more invigorated? If you have, then you are already experiencing essential oils and practicing aromatherapy!
Essential oils have been around long before we have and have been providing amazing physical, mental and spiritual benefits to people for decades.
So what are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the lifeblood of the plant and carry nutrients and oxygen to the plant. They are the aromatic liquids found in trees, plants, bushes, roots and seeds.
Essential oils have the ability to do amazing things. Here are just a few:
- Support the immune system
- Support the body’s natural defenses and body systems
- Elevate Mood
- Manage stressful feelings
- Support normal cellular function
- Improve mental clarity and focus
- Improve restlessness
- Contribute to overall health and well-being
How Can I Use Essential Oils?
Essential oils are so versatile and can be used in hundreds of different ways! From therapeutic benefits to cleaning products (remember thieves?) and personal care products, essential oils have a place in more things than you think! I'm constantly learning new ways.
Just a few ways that we use essential oils for ourselves and our home:
- Tummy Aches
- Focus and clarity
- Body Wash
- Air fresheners
- Floor cleaners
- Surface cleaners
- Immune support
These are just a few of the many ways that we use Young Living Essential Oils in our home for our health.
Why Choose Young Living?
Trust me, I know there are so many essential oil options out there. That's why it took me nearly a year to decide on Young Living. If you know me a bit, you know that I don’t exactly just dive into things. I research….a lot.
I want to talk about quality, because my pet peeve is buying something expensive that ends up not being what it claims. (Example: “extra virgin” olive oils from Italy that really are cheap oils combined together with chlorophyll for green color! Did anyone see that special on 60 Minutes!?)
Before I dove into Young Living, I purchased other oils here and there from different places. At first they seemed just fine to me because I had nothing to compare them to. But once you get a YL oil, you realize the difference in quality almost right away. They don’t mess around with their growing and distillation practices and have multiple farms around the world and they closely take care of and make sure things are done the right way. Their essential oils are 100% pure, safe, and highly effective. If you’re going to spend your hard earned money into oils, you need to make sure they are going to work, right!?
Okay, I’m In! Where Do I Start?
You have a few options!
Purchase Individual Oils
You can purchase just a few oils at retail price, which is totally cool if that’s your goal and don’t have much interest in building a supply. But if you want to save some bucks and start a great collection, Young Living offers a very affordable way get started with multiple oils and a diffuser to use them all in.
To look at all of the individual oils, blends and other products, click here to view (This will not be the website to purchase oils on, just to view all of your options) and then once you have picked out your oils, click on this page to order as a Retail Customer. You sign up first, then pick out your products second.
Purchase a Starter Kit
On another note, you may start to realize that there are so many amazing things you can do with essential oils, and you will likely want more than 1 or 2 oils to play around with. Young Living offers several choices for kits you can choose which will be heavily discounted. Signing up will also provide future discounts ( 24% off) all other purchases as well as allow you to build up reward points for free stuff! So much free stuff! I personally think that the Premium Starter Kit is the best value.
Inside The Premium Starter Kit
What’s it cost? The kit retails for over $300, but you won’t be paying that. As a wholesale member you’ll get it for half off that price. Also, when you want to purchase anything in the future, you’re getting a pretty sweet discount of almost 25% off. Best part? No auto-ship stuff, no monthly membership fees, no fluff. You'll have everything in this image for $160. It's really an amazing deal. You can sign up for one HERE.
