Essential Oils

Why use essential oils?

Essential oils come from plants, so they are 100% natural. Instead of using synthetic materials to take care of our bodies and stay healthy, we can turn to the healing properties of plants. Oils might seem new and trendy, but they’ve been used for thousands of years in thousands of ways! They naturally support your immune system, skin, emotions and mood, hormones, muscles, digestion, sleep, and so.much.more.

How do you use essential oils?

There are three common ways to use essential oils: smelling them (straight from the bottle or using a diffuser), ingesting them, or putting them on your skin. Each of these different ways gets the essential oils into your body. Once the oils get in, they’re smart and know what to do to help you. You can put a digestive blend of oils on your feet and STILL feel it working in your belly!

Essential oils work quickly and it doesn’t take much to do the job. One simple drop will reach your heart and thyroid in 3 seconds when inhaled, your bloodstream in only 22 seconds, and will reach every cell in your body in 20 minutes when applied to your skin!

Why can’t I just get my oils from the grocery store? They’re so much cheaper!

Cheap oils are cheap for a reason. Unfortunately, there’s little regulation around essential oils, so companies can put whatever synthetics or fillers they want into the bottle and call it “pure essential oil.” Young Living has been around for 25 years and is known for their Seed to Seal standards – you’ll only find pure oils in their bottles, with NO synthetics or fillers, and ZERO pesticides. Young Living owns all their own farms and ANYONE can tour them to see their growing practices, watch them harvest (often by hand!), and see exactly how they distill the oils from the plants. This is the only company I trust to use on my family!

community & support

When you get your Young Living starter kit, you instantly become part of the Young Living family. Before I started using Young Living, I used just about every brand of oils I could find. I bought them online, from the health food store, from random friends. But I never really understood what to do with them, and honestly, they never really helped. The grocery store clerk certainly didn’t know how to help me with my oils. I was constantly googling “how to use essential oils” and finding conflicting information ALL over the interwebs! I started using Young Living oils and saw a HUGE difference in the quality. They actually worked! Plus, when I had questions – there were people and resources committed to helping me use my oils safely. YOU can be part of our community too! Have a question? We want to help!

the easy button

When I think about how essential oils have impacted our family, it’s hard to think of any way they haven’t changed our lives. From our cleaning products to what we reach for when we’re under the weather to transforming our sleep, it’s easy for me to say that using Young Living oils and products has drastically changed our lives. I’m a little bit obsessed with talking about it with everyone I know, because if you had an easy solution to help your friends and family sleep better, stay healthy on the regular, have better skin, get control over their hormones, and kick the toxic chemicals out of their house… wouldn’t you talk about it too?!

With a house full of young kids, I want them to have the best start in life. Our homes and our bodies are overburdened by toxins… but as moms, we’re also overburdened by ALL THE DECISIONS! Am I right?! I need an easy button.

That’s where Young Living comes in. One stop shopping for all things toxin-free: cleaning supplies, soaps and shampoos, makeup, vitamins, lotions, baby wipes, and all the oils. I don’t have to go to the store and read dozens of labels, trying to make sense of the gibberish ingredients. I don’t even have to drag all my kids to the store! Instead, I get only the products I want, delivered right to my door – when I want them.
