I’ve had general interest in natural healing and alternative therapies since I got out of college, but never really pursued “getting into” any sort of natural routine or lifestyle until now. The more I learn, the more excited I get because there are just so many ways to enhance my quality of life by using essential oils. Here are just some of the ways I am using them in my life:
Instead of using toxic cleaning products with “warning” or “caution” on the bottles, I have I started making my own simple cleaning products using baking soda, vinegar and essential oils.
I made my own mineral tooth paste using bentonite clay, baking soda, and essential oils. I also made essential oil based mouth wash.
I’ve ditched all of my body sprays, perfumes and colognes which have, at best, questionable ingredients, in favor of using essential oils. I can customize blends to address certain conditions so I not only smell good, but also reap the health benefits of the specific essential oils I choose. Now my “perfume” works for me.
Why Young Living?
Young Living has been in business for over 25 years. They own their own farms and distilleries around the world, and partner with other farms as well.
They have the highest standards from planting and growing the seeds all the way through the harvesting and distilling of the final products. Young Living has a seed to seal promise which means they have quality control from the planting of the seeds to the sealing of the final product, assuring the very best quality from start to finish.
Many essential oil companies use synthetic fillers or contain low quality oils that have been grown using pesticides. You should always check labels on essential oils, and will notice that many of them say “not for internal use” or “do not use directly on skin.” When the bottles say these things, you will know the oils inside them are not high quality and why they might smell ok, they will be of no therapeutic value to you.
Young Living essential oils never have added synthetics, contaminants or cheap fillers, and there are multiple quality assurance checks to assure that the finished product is of the highest quality. Young Living believes in sourcing the botanicals used to make the oils conscientiously and with sensitivity to local communities and ecosystems.
Because of the purity of Young Living’s essential oils, the therapeutic qualities of the plants they come from are preserved and can be used to enhance and support your body’s ability to be well.
When you are ready to sign up with Young Living, the best way to start is to become a wholesale member and purchase a Premium Starter Kit for around $160.
This is a terrific package that allows you to start using the basic oils for yourself and your family right away. The premium starter kit comes with 11 versatile oils AND a diffuser! After you purchase your starter kit, you do not ever have to purchase anything again. (You do have to purchase 50 “personal volume” worth of merchandise (roughly $50) per YEAR or your membership goes inactive. However, if you do not make any other purchase in that 12-month period, but find you want to order again later, simply call Young Living and ask for your account to be reinstated so you CAN make a purchase.)
Even though there is no obligation to make any other purchases, once you find out how amazing the oils are, you will probably want to dive in deeper!!
The more you learn about your oils, the more you will want to try new oils and reap the benefits of the wide range of Young Living Oils and products. You can choose to enroll in Essential Rewards, Young Living’s version of auto ship, if you are interested in earning free products and discounted shipping. With Essential Rewards you can change your order each month so you receive only what you need when you need it. Essential Rewards is not required, but there are many benefits to using this Young Living service!
I chose to join Young Living because of the extremely high quality of the product.
Once I became a member, the support and team mentality of other members has been a huge help in learning how to use the oils. The more I learn, the more I want to help others learn! If you are interested in changing from using toxic products to creating a healthy, non-toxic home and lifestyle, I would LOVE to help you!
