Hi friends! We are SO glad you dropped by, and We’re excited to share with you about the simplicity of living a natural lifestyle!
Nutrition is a popular topic, yet many of us know very little about the true importance of using natural, plant based products. So many products on the supermarket shelves are filled with toxins, even when they claim to be organic. When our bodies are overloaded with the toxins constantly surrounding us, we start feeling it! Making the change to a natural lifestyle is a journey, but with baby steps, each of us can do it! This oily life is all about wellness, purpose and abundance. There is empowerment, confidence, freedom and health found in this journey as you take each step one at a time.
The magic of essential oils comes from the simple fact that they are straight from nature, and they serve a purpose of foundational grounding and rooting. This is about supporting our bodies for optimal vibrant life, not the symptom by symptom approach society knows all too well.
If you’ve got questions, know that you aren’t alone! We have ALL had them, so let’s chat!
Essential oils are the “lifeblood” or “immune system” of a plant, flower, tree, herb, root or seed. Most essential oils are extracted through steam distillation, which when done properly, preserves all those amazing therapeutic constituents from the plant.
While oils might seem like a new thing, they really aren’t. They’ve been around since ancient times and many everyday products use plant based flavoring and extracts. However, this is where it gets super important to know where your oils come from, because a synthetic, diluted or chemically treated compound can cause our body to react in adverse ways.
We’ve done a lot of research and tried various brands before choosing Young Living Essential Oils for our families. The integrity and transparency of Young Living impressed us (We can go visit their farms anytime we want!) and we noticed an incredible difference in strength and aroma. Pure essential oil works with our bodies on a cellular level. Through their Seed to Seal process, Young Living ensures that seeds are placed into soil that has never been treated with chemicals, nor are pesticides ever used on our plants. Each plant is carefully harvested at peak times and distilled at optimal temperatures. The science, testing and care pure into every single batch of oil is absolutely mind-blowing and truly “beyond organic” standards.
5 Reasons Why I Chose Young Living
• Young Living owns farms all over the world and members are welcome to visit anytime to personally see and experience harvesting, distilling and bottling of the the oils
• As the world leader in essential oils, they have over 20 years of experience in the science of harvesting and distilling oils
• Seed to Seal guarantees that every drop of oil is completely pure, ensuring the land is cared for and sustainable
• Because they are completely pure without additives, the Vitality line of oils is recognized as safe to consume internally
• The results speak truth: one drop brings results whereas we previously had to use 5-10 drops of other brands
Essential oils have a rich history since ancient times, even if we are just now starting to hear more about them in daily life. As with anything that gains popularity, it’s important to distinguish between scientific and trustworthy sources and those that are not.
Some great places to start are materials written by doctors and scientists, such as those at Life Science Publishing. You can learn all about the chemistry, science and safe usage of oils from them.
Young Living’s website also shares some wonderful starter information: Essential Oil Safety
As you empower yourself with knowledge, you’ll come across some amazing testimonials about oils, but we can’t share many details with you because of compliance, which is an FDA regulation regarding what those who financially benefit from the sale of products such as oils can legally say about their product. Opinions are great, but finding reputable scientific information will benefit you as well. In addition, when you join our team, you’ll get additional sources of compliant information to guide you on your journey.
Cheap essential oils are cheap for a reason. We’ve just got to say it. We once thought we were saving money buying “the deals,” but we actually weren’t. Essential oils aren’t regulated, which pretty much means that a manufacturer can put anything they want in that bottle: carrier oil, solvent, filler, chemical additive, watered down floral or citrus water. Sniff a few brands and your nose will tell you which ones are filled with everything BUT essential oil.
Using these kinds of oils can actually cause a lot more harm than good. Young Living has incredible testing to ensure that every oil is 100% pure. There are no fillers, toxins, pesticides, or watering down of oils, ever. You can learn more about Seed to Seal here.
You may be thinking “that’s great, but I don’t want to join an MLM…they’re all scams.” First of all, take a look at the structure of Young Living: the compensation plan is straightforward and you are always getting a product when you buy something. That’s not a scam!
MLMs do not charge more for their product to support their structure. Instead, income is used to produce a superior product (for Young Living, it’s spending millions on caring for their farms) and then poured right back into the independent distributors so they can run their own business. It means you’re buying local and helping families to put food on the table. Supporting your friends and individuals instead of the elite top executives of traditional companies.
Sweet friend, we know they are tiny bottles, but remember that each drop is extremely potent and goes a long way. A 15ml bottle has about 250-300 drops in it, so while a bottle of Lavender may cost $24.25 wholesale, each drop is really only about 8-9 cents each. Depending on how much plant material is needed to extract an oil, that cost per drop will be much less or much more, but that’s about the average. Compared to a lot of the other products we use, a few cents is nothing!
The Premium Starter Kit was designed with the new oiler in mind. It’s a 50% savings over retail cost, which makes it a steal at $165. For 12 bottles of essential oil, a high quality diffuser (with an awesome 1 year warranty), plus extra samples and goodies, a wholesale membership (24% discount off retail), and all the perks of joining an amazing community, this may just be the best investment into your family’s health that you’ve ever made. It has been for our families and so many others!
