Why essential oils are one of the best decisions I ever made…
I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t raised “all-natural” or “organic.” And I certainly wasn’t raised “chemical-free.” I had no background in natural medicine or healthy living. Being a mom of two kiddos under the age of 4, I became concerned with the amount of toxins, chemicals and “fake food” we were ingesting on a daily basis. I enjoy research, so I began searching for information and what I found inspired me to make a change for our family.
I really just want the best for my family. However, being a stay-at-home mom, I need a certain amount of convenience available to me. There needs to be a balance in everything we do and I like to think I manage that balance pretty well.
Why I started using essential oils:
When our kids were teething and running fevers, we went through at LEAST a dozen bottles of infant ibuprofen. The ingredients and anxiety I felt in giving them the medicine is really what drove me to seek out other options. I wanted something safe and natural, without a gallon of red food coloring. (Seriously, do kids care if it’s red or not?)
I discovered essential oils in 2014 and it has been an incredible journey. I’ve been able to care for my family in ways I never knew were possible. With essential oils, we’ve climbed above the wellness line and it’s an amazing feeling to know I’m giving my kids the best start possible, free of toxic chemicals and dyes.
What are essential oils and why am I so crazy about them?
Essential oils are a highly concentrated liquid distilled from plants. This amazing oil contains all the therapeutic benefits of that particular plant in a super concentrated form. Think of it this way, instead of ingesting 20 pounds of peppermint to support your digestive system, you can simply use a few drops of Peppermint essential oil. (Sounds a lot easier, doesn’t it?)
I had no idea that PLANTS could do so much! I’ve heard of different remedies and such, but when you have a CVS down the road it’s a lot easier to just go buy a pill than find a health food store and figure out what you need. See, I told you I need a certain amount of convenience.
Why Young Living?
That’s where these little bottles are so amazing – 1 to 2 drops is all you need at a time. And yes, the oils really do work. I personally only recommend Young Living essential oils. I know, there are a lot of other brands and companies out there – some are even less expensive.
I encourage you to do your research. If you’re looking to use essential oils therapeutically (that is, to support and maintain your health), you need to know the company you’re purchasing your oils from – inside out.
There is a mass market of essential oils and unless you know your company, you don’t know the true value of those oils. Many oils are a product of the 2nd and 3rd distillation of plant material and offer almost no therapeutic value. Others have been synthetically stretched and adulterated. I personally want to know where each of my oils come from and with Young Living, they own their own farms around the world – ensuring absolute quality and perfection from “Seed to Seal”. No other company can make that promise to you. By using Young Living, I know that I am getting the purest oil in every bottle, not just a percentage of the oil and the rest chemicals and additives (which is what you find on most shelves). Their essential oils are 100% pure, safe and highly effective.

The BEST way to buy essential oils:
Young Living offers a very affordable way to get started and is great for those new to using essential oils. While they offer several choices, the Premium Starter Kit is the best value. The kit comes with 11 oils (Frankincense, Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Panaway, Purification, Thieves, Lemon, RC, Digize, Copaiba and StressAway), a home diffuser (or you can choose from 4 diffusers), a rollerball for your bottles, as well as samples and literature to help you get started! The kit retails for over $300, but as a wholesale member you get a 50% discount. Such a great deal to help you get started using essential oils for your family. This kit also entitles you to purchase at 24% discount off retail prices on any future purchases, but without obligation to purchase every month.
It’s my opinion that enrolling as a member with Young Living is the best deal out there. You can’t go wrong with these oils. Hands down – best investment ever.
