My family and I started using essential oils long before we moved out of the suburbs. My friend kept telling me about them and how they were helping her family with all sorts of things, so I finally decided to give them a try. I started with one little bottle of lavender and before long my medicine and cleaning cabinets started to look a whole lot different.
I had always been conscious of the food we eat but hadn't given that same intentional thought to the products I was putting on my skin and using to clean my home. There are ingredients in everyday things like baby lotion, dish soap, dryer sheets… all linked to cancer, infertility, and various diseases. The fact that companies don't even have to list the ingredients or tell me what is in those types of products was enough to give me pause.
I think essential oils can be intimidating at first- I know they were for me. Not knowing how to use them or what exactly to use them for made it difficult for me to get started. Even trying to decide which company or brand of oils to use was overwhelming. Ultimately, I chose Young Living because of their commitment to purity and transparency.
I am SO glad someone was there to hold my hand and help me navigate my journey to intentional wellness for my family. Now we use essential oils for all kinds of things (you’d be surprised what they can do, and the science behind them is fascinating) but Young Living is so much more than oils... dish soap, laundry soap, baby products, beauty products, men’s products, kids’ products, supplements, household cleaning stuff, and more.
Today, we use essential oils for so many different uses in our home- from seasonal irritations outdoors, to first aid types of things, to helping balance emotions, and, of course, restful sleep! Sophia's bedtime routine isn't over until we have read stories, sang Jesus Loves Me (while scratching her back), put oils on her feet, and started her diffuser... forget any one of those things and she will let you know!
Now that we've been using essential oils in our home for a few years now I can see how our whole outlook has changed. We are proactive when it comes to our health and support our bodies with various essential oils and supplements from YL, instead of reactively relying on toxic chemicals and the like. Essential oils are just another way I support my body to live a life made simple.
If this sounds like something you want to know more about, I would love to share more with you about how essential oils have made a difference in our every day life. The way I initially got started is the way I’d recommend any family interested in taking a proactive approach in their wellness journey get started:

The starter kit comes with:

If you do choose to sign up for a kit, please let me know! I would love to chat more with you about all things oily and wellness and how I can help you with either of those things in any way. (Especially about the YL Essential Rewards program and how I get FREE oils just by placing my monthly order.)
To be very clear: I am not building a Young Living empire... I didn't start using oils because I wanted to "sell" them to other people. I know MLM and direct sales companies scare a lot of people away, but please don't let that hold you back from learning more about these powerful wellness tools. I truly believe in these products I've implemented in my home and I promise I wouldn't be telling you about them otherwise.
