Essential oils have changed my life – and believe me, I was the skeptic of ALL skeptics when I was first introduced to them. How on earth could a sniff of this or a rub of that help to improve my family’s health or well being?
But before I explain why essential oils are so great, you might be wondering what they actually are?!
Essential oils are the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. They’re basically concentrated herbs! They contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodies’ health and wellness.
There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Bergamot and Eucalyptus to unusual and exotic ones like Petitgrain and Spikenard, there’s an unfathomably huge range to choose from – and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses.
I’m no scientist (and you probably aren’t either), so I’ll explain how essential oils have helped my family and me…
I’ve got a lot on my plate: I’m a mom of a toddler, I’m pregnant with our second child, I work from home, cooking real food, etc. – which you’ll already know if you’re a regular reader of my blog. Lavender and Stress Away are my go-to oils for balance: they relax me, calm me down, and help make everything possible.
I also love to make tons of homemade recipes with my essential oils! From DIY skin care to body lotion, I have replaced many toxic beauty products with natural and easy homemade recipes.
Peppermint and Lemon diffused together in the morning is my favorite diffuser combo. It helps to give me a fresh start to each day and helps to energize me.
Those are just a few examples, but essential oils have also replaced many everyday products that I used to spend a fortune on. I now clean my home with oil-infused natural cleaners rather than toxic chemicals from the supermarket, for example. I cleanse my face with oil-infused natural products too. And everyone in the family benefits from using calming essential oils in the diffuser before bedtime!
In my opinion, no. I’ve done a lot of research into this and if you ask me, there’s one particular brand that stands head and shoulders above the rest: Young Living.
There are many reasons why this brand is so great, but here are my three favorites:
One of the most important things I’ve learned in my journey to healthy living is that it’s not just what something is – it’s where it comes from, how it’s grown, and how it’s processed. Whether it’s blueberries fresh from the farm, or cows on green pasture, or a soft organic t-shirt, I know that the source matters.
I did many hours of research to find an essential oil company that I felt I could trust with my family’s health. Young Living is that company: they truly care about quality.
To ensure the purity of their oils, the team at Young Living set the highest standards for planting, harvesting, and distilling on the farms they own and co-op (I have friends that have been personally to the Young Living Farms around the WORLD and seen this for themselves! I can’t wait to go myself one day!). And if I’m going to be putting products on my family’s skin and around our home, I want to know they’re pure and unadulterated!
I actually have had the privilege of visiting a Young Living farm in Mona, Utah! I got to participate in the process by even planting some yarrow seedlings!
As a Young Living customer, you automatically become a member of a big, oily family that will give you all the support and advice you need! It’s a wonderful feeling to know you have the help and reassurance of a generous and caring community of moms, experts, and lifelong users.
I’ve been using my oils for a long time, but I still reach out to the our close-knit community for their advice and expertise!
No other essential oils company offers such a great-value and comprehensive range of products to get you started.
The Young Living Premium Starter Kit contains your everyday staples – all the oils and equipment you’ll want to have on hand for a variety of situations. There’s an excellent user guide, too, which will help you understand how to use everything contained in the kit.
Here’s what else is great: once you buy the Premium Starter Kit, you automatically become a “wholesale member” of Young Living. This means you can continue to buy other Young Living products for a huge 24% discount off the retail price! You’re under zero obligation to buy any other products as a wholesale member, but if you do, you get 24% off!
Total value: $300… you pay: $160 – that’s a HUGE discount!
And remember: once you’ve purchased the kit, you automatically become a wholesale member – which entitles you to 24% off all future purchases from Young Living! There are NO monthly minimums or fees.
