WHAT in the world are Essential Oils?

You have most likely touched, smelled, or even consumed an essential oil without even knowing it. They are nature’s living energy; the natural, aromatic, volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. They are then extracted from these different plant parts via steam distillation and are highly concentrated, making them far more potent than dried herbs.

And these little drops have the ability to do MUCH more than just fill the air with a pleasant aroma. Between all of the known essential oils (over 300!), there are literally THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of uses! Young Living Essential Oils can be used topically, aromatically, and internally — just read the label for instructions as each essential oil’s usage varies based on their constituents.

WHY Young Living?

Young Living is the World Leader in essential oils. Founded in 1993 by Gary Young, Young Living is a company focused solely on product over profit. They make every single product for a PURPOSE. If the quality is not there, an essential oil or wellness product can be out of stock for weeks, months, even years! I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel so confident and safe using these products.

In a world where integrity seems to be obsolete, YLEO still believes in this concept.

Aside from their unmatched integrity, Young Living lives by Seed to Seal. This is their exclusive method of authenticating their essential oils. It’s what makes our essential oils so much more effective than others on the market.

They own and co-own farms around the world. Wherever the plant is indigenous and/or can thrive in the perfect environment, is where it is grown. The Seed to Seal process can be publically viewed at their farms located in Utah, Idaho, Hawaii, Ecuador, Croatia, and Australia! And, they have a phenomenal sustainability program set in place to ensure that our environment is protected. 

  • Our plants are hand-weeded
  • NON-GMO 
  • No pesticides
  • No toxic chemicals 
  • No weed killers
  • Plants are harvested at their peak
  • Vigorous testing process by a board of pharmacists, doctors, and scientists
  • From the farm to your home 

With Young Living, you’ll have peace of mind by knowing exactly where your essential oils are coming from and how they are made.

“BUT I can get Essential Oils anywhere…what’s the difference?”

I’m sure that you’ve walked into your local grocery or department store and have seen essential oils for sale. And they are probably pretty cheap. While I’m thrilled that essential oils are becoming mainstream (though they’ve been around for thousands of years…because, plants…), it is so easy for other companies to throw an “essential oil” liquid into a bottle and slap “100% pure” on it.

But, is it actually 100%? Highly doubtful. The FDA has little to no regulations in place on essential oil purity. (Hop on over to their website and do your research. It’s disheartening.) In fact, a product only needs to include one “certified organic” ingredient in ordered to be labeled “organic” by FDA standards!

You are your best advocate. You have to know what to look for. From the moment the first seed is sown until the steam distilled or cold-pressed oil is sealed in the bottle, the Seed to Seal process ensures our oils deliver expected results and 100% pure, therapeutic grade promise. (But remember, the only way that they will work is if you open them up and use them, via their label, consistently!)

You’re probably now realizing why this aspect of creating essential oils is so crucial and truly MATTERS. If you’re spending your hard-earned money on products that are supposed to be improving your health, please don’t waste it on knock-offs that say “aromatic use only” or “contact poison control if…” This is YOUR body, your significant other’s body, children’s bodies, your pets’ bodies — give them THE best.

You deserve it. 

 

 

HOW do I get started?

I recommend the Premium Starter Kit (pictured above) because:

1.) It is SO easy for beginners to use!

These are “everyday” essential oils — meaning, they’re the ones you’ll use consistently and easily. With basics like Peppermint, Lavender, and Lemon (which are everything BUT basic, let me tell you!), you’ll be confidently reaching for those oils on the daily!

2.) You get an incredible amount of product for $160 — which is MORE THAN 50% off!

I’m talking 11 essential oils, a FREE DIFFUSER of your choice, two sample packets of Ningxia Red juice, a roller ball top for easier application, more sample packets, and a few other goodies!

3. ) You have a forever-discount with Young Living! 

After your kit, whenever you place an order — if and when you want to — you grab anything your heart desires at wholesale {which is 24% off of retail!}. No monthly membership fees or any of that. Place a 50PV (basically $50) order just once every 12-month cycle, and this discount remains all yours, forever and ever!

4.) And, you’ll have access to the totally-optional-but-completely-amazing Essential Rewards.

Every month, Young Living arrives at my front door! Essential Rewards is fully customizable, and you earn points back for free product and perks with every order! Little by little, my home has been transformed. I threw away daily products that were unknowingly making me sick: scented sprays, candles, shampoo, lotion, perfume, laundry soap, dish detergent, bathroom and kitchen cleaners, the list goes on. I replaced those conventional products with not only a “green” alternative, but a YOUNG LIVING alternative. “Green” products really work! But Young Living takes it a step further with ESSENTIAL OILS!

5.) It makes you feel empowered and confident!

It’s true. Imagine being able to walk to your bathroom wellness cabinet and grab an essential oil and rubbing it on the area of discomfort — maybe the abdomen to ease a tummy ache, or the temples to soothe head tension. Imagine diffusing Lavender to help calm a crying baby. Or drinking a drop of Thieves in your evening tea to support your immune system during the colder months. How intuitive, smart, empowered, and confident would that make you feel? To have powerful body, mind, and soul-boosters at your fingertips?!

6.) You’re family.

You’ll be connecting with a huge community of oilers — from people just starting out, to those who have been using essential oils for years. Everyone has experiences to share, encouragement to give, and tons of support along the way! With online groups, monthly classes and meet-ups, and a team that has your back no matter what; the moment you purchase your kit, you’re part of the family!

Being introduced to Young Living changed my life. And because of that, my passion is helping you to achieve health and wellness beyond the status quo.

So, grab a kit, and let’s have some fun! I can’t wait to get started on this journey with you!
