Why Young Living* brand?

Why Young Living* brand?

There are a myriad of little things that I learned in reading about essential oils that led me to go with Young Living. {this post has had some minor edits since it’s original posting} If you have time and an inclination to read many blog posts and research reports, I would suggest “googling” essential oils.   But recently I came across a fairly comprehensive note on the topic of specifically Young Living and {doTerra} oils with much of the same information I remember having read in separate places. It is written by a lady who had the same questions many of us do, and took the time to research it out. She answers some pretty specific questions in a good bit of detail. I have no reason to suspect her sincerity and her notations appear thorough. In addition, below is a link to the Young Living pledge of “Seed to Seal”… They ONLY do 1 distillation, getting the purest form of the essential oil from that plant.  Many times plants are subjected to complete distillation, meaning the plant material passes several times through the distillation process and then the resulting oils are combined creating less strong oils. If you want, you can read about the actual company and founder of YL. I trust WHY they founded the company. I appreciate the fact that they grow plants in their natural habitat and even test the seeds of the plants they grow themselves before planting!   The information found in these different links are just part of why I chose Young Living and recommend it exclusively… I also had a spiritual peace that this was what would...

some SUMMER oil thoughts

In case you can’t tell from this little graphic, LAVENDER is an AWESOME EO to start with! It is the oil I jumped into learning about way back when I used whatever oil I could afford…. not really realizing the different qualities. We use it all the time for scrapes and bug bites and unknown-origin itches. {And I do realize that there MAY be other oils with quality equal to Young Living… but I trust Young Living’s SEED to SEAL promise, and the one-stop-shopping for EOs is just what this busy momma needs! } We love [heavily diluted, a little goes a LONG way] PEPPERMINT for upset tummies. I use it for headaches, but small children should not use this potent oil around their face or neck as it can hinder their respiration. I like to add THIEVES to my {natural} all-purpose cleaner… [it’s just vinegar & water] for some extra germ-killing “umph.” Have you ever used any of these oils for these purposes? {{Feel free to ask me how you can get wholesale prices from me… locals get free shipping. Sales tax still applies. If you fall in love with your oil, the PREMIUM STARTER KIT is the way to go for learning about MORE!}} ** I am not a doctor .

a new endeavor

In addition to learning to eat healthier, I have been trying to learn about HEALING healthier… …less pharmaceutical medicines and more natural remedies. In beginning this journey, I have become a believer in Essential Oils as a source for natural healing… and I have also become an Independent Distributor for Young Living Essential Oils.  I believe in the quality of the oils from this company and could not recommend any others. I have used a few singles and blends since receiving my starter kit about 2 weeks ago and have been AMAZED at how well they work. If you would like to know more, please feel free to contact me.   Personally, we have used the “Allergy Trio” of peppermint, lavender, and lemon to treat our spring allergies… and it seems to have worked as well as {claritin} or {allegra} or {benadryl} without any of the possible side-effects that come with using OTC meds. Many of the oils can be taken internally, but my preferred and the most potent for myself is to apply topically in certain places on my body. There are several blends and recipes for pain relief, and using the citrus oils are a wonderful way to help detox your body… though I would add that a diet change will also help in maintaining a cleaner body! I hope you will enjoy my journey of learning about a healthier body…and I would love to know that you stopped...
