Hi there! I am so excited that you are interested in getting started with essential oils! I personally have been using natural and nontoxic products since 2013. At that time I was expecting my daughter and wanted to make sure that I was making the best choices for myself and for my growing baby. Ever since then, I have become more interested and passionate about nontoxic products.

In addition, I have an autoimmune condition, so I am very sensitive to chemicals and certain ingredients. Using nontoxic products and essential oils helps to keep flare ups and symptoms at bay.

I began using products from Young Living because they offer an extensive line of essential oils and essential oil-infused, plant-based products that represent the best of nature.

What are Essential Oils?

Many plants contain compounds that typically can’t be seen with the naked eye. They are contained within the roots, flowers, seeds, bark, or other areas of the plant. These compounds are known as essential oils. They are highly concentrated, making them extremely potent.

Essential oils are extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing. It’s critical that you use quality oils like those from Young Living that are not compromised by added synthetics, contaminants, or cheap fillers, or by using unethical production practices.

Benefits of Essential Oils

Essential oils have been used to enhance lives for thousands of years. You can use oils to inspire a positive emotional state, improve memory and focus, enhance physical wellness, and purify your home. You can also use them to support sleep and relaxation, boost your immune system, and aid with seasonal allergies. These are just a few of the many uses.

You may be thinking, “Do essential oils really work, or is this just a fad?” Believe me I asked the same thing. Yet, after a review of the research I found that there are over 20,000 citations for biomedical literature regarding essential oils and their uses (source). In addition, when used properly, they have few, if any, side effects.

What Else Does Young Living Offer?

Young Living has an entire line of personal care products, cleaning products, supplements, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, Lavender and Orange Flower extract are absolutely wonderful in facial products). There is definitely a wide variety of products available.

Why Choose Young Living?

Young Living offers an extensive line of plant-based products that represent the best of nature.

Young Living has been passionately distilling essential oils for over 22 years from their own farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. Their proprietary Seed to Seal process guarantees the purity that you and your family deserves.

Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sourced, which is why Young Living chooses partners who produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally. Many factors affect the quality of an essential oil. And quality, in turn, affects therapeutic value and results.

What’s the Catch?

There really isn’t one.  You do not have to make a monthly minimum purchase (unless you want to).  You don’t have to sell anything (unless you want to).  If you never want to order again after making that initial purchase you won’t be penalized other than losing your discount. To keep your membership active, you just have to purchase $50 worth of product a year (so restocking your lavender and peppermint or grabbing some supplements or toiletries would totally do it).

    […] I don’t know about you, but when I use a conventional cleaning product my eyes burn and I can not stand the chemical smell. Especially air fresheners that just create a cloud of fumes in your home. When switching to natural cleaning products you can choose to make them unscented or add essential oils. For example, I love using lavender essential oil for a relaxing scent in our bedrooms and living room. And when I make an all-purpose spray for the kitchen and bathrooms I like to use a citrus essential oil. The fun part is that you can choose your favorites!
