Essential Oils

Young Living Essential Oils.

If you have been on any sort of social media the past year or so, you have probably seen something about essential oils.  Unless, of course, you were off the grid, to which I say, teach me your ways! Even if you were without any modern technology, the chances are you have experienced the power of natural, organic, pure plant therapy.  Anyone who has plucked a sprig of lavender knows the imminent sensation of relaxation and comfort that comes from the plant’s aroma.  This is what essential oils are all about.  Here is my story about how I started loving my essential oils.

This past winter our little family of three passed around 3 different cold viruses, a respiratory infection, 2 bouts of food poisoning, an ear infection, and countless runny noses and low grade fevers. Add 3 dogs to the mix and you get allergies, allergies, allergies galore!  We were all constantly medicated.  I was concerned with how much medicine we were giving our baby girl.  She was so tiny and her body so new and pure that I felt wrong putting a bunch of chemicals into her precious body, polluting it.  Don’t get me wrong, I am all for modern medicine when it is necessary and will not hesitate to take her to her primary care physician if she needs to be treated.  But it just seemed so excessive.  There had to be another option.

I had seen a few posts about essential oils and thought (no offense), “Well that is the opinion of a bunch of hippies with placebo drops.”   But nonetheless, I was drawn by curiosity to research these oils.  I read so many stories about how they changed people’s lives and their families were off medication and healthier than ever before.  So I talked to my husband and we decided to try them out.  If nothing else, it was worth a try.  I purchased the Premium Starter Kit through Young Living since it was the best deal for the most commonly used oils.

A few months later, we are all off allergy medicine.  The dogs rarely even sneeze.  Our medicine cabinet has been collecting dust while we have more energy, sleep better (these oils have gotten our 1 year old to sleep through the night without CIO!), heal and recover faster, and I am confident as a mother, knowing that what I put into my daughter’s body is natural and truly good for her.  And not just medicine.  We rid our home of so many of the toxins in our daily life- household cleaners, air sprays and candles, beauty and bath products, energy drinks, and so much more.  Plus our house smells amazing! (If they didn’t shed so bad you would never know we have 3 stinky indoor dogs in a 2000 sq. ft. house!)

I am passionate about these oils because I have seen the difference they have made in my family. These oils are truly a gift from God, and I would love to be an advocate for your family’s well being by helping you get started on your own oily journey.

Taken from YoungLiving.com:

“At the intersection of cutting-edge research and traditional wisdom, Young Living formulates targeted, essential oil-based wellness solutions that empower you to dodge harmful chemicals, energize your life, ditch stress and negativity, and reclaim your natural radiance.”

Great. But what are essential oils?

Young Living essential oils are made from a plant’s flower, stem, leaves, bark, and/or fruit though a meticulous and innovative process using gentle steam extraction and cold pressing methods.  To read more about the incredible standards for purity and authenticity proprietary to Young Living (Seed to Seal Process), click here.

Using this process, YL creates therapeutic grade essential oils that far exceed purity and quality standards.  That’s why I chose Young Living.

These oils can be diffused (made into tiny particles that spread through the air) in a diffuser, applied topically and taken orally.

So where do you start?

I started with the Premium Starter Kit.  This includes 11 oils, a diffuser, and lots of samples (including my daily vitamin drink- Ningxia Red!).  Plus literature about each oil and how to use them.   This is hands down the best value for everyday use of essential oils, and definitely the way to get started.
