You are looking at 11+ years of oil collecting from 8 different brands. It’s a little wild for me to think I’ve been using essential oils for this long! Its been an awesome journey and let me share with you how it all started…
Shortly after we had our first baby, I literally threw out ALL the OTC & prescribed medicine we had in the house. Yes, you read that right… I threw out everything. Tylenol. Advil. Antibiotics. Creams. Etc…
EVERYTHING… and. never. looked. back.
You’re probably wondering WHY would I do a crazy thing like that?!
Many reasons, my personality is “it’s all or nothing”, but the one big reason is due to my own personal experience. As a child I swallowed a whole bottle of baby Tylenol, thinking it was candy, and my parents had to rush me to the emergency room to have my stomach pumped. So, yeah, I didn’t want that experience to be repeated with my own kids… especially now that we live in boonies of Honduras where nearest emergency care is over an hour away.
The first year since I “purged” every toxic thing out of my house, I learned quickly to replace the conventional medicine with natural alternatives such as homeopathy, herbs, clean foods, supplements, truly natural body care, and essential oils. Once I started seeing and experiencing amazing results of using these non-toxic & healthier alternatives, I was aaallll in! I replaced all my toxic cleaning products with non-toxic, DIY cleaning alternatives. I threw out ALL my Bath&BodyWorks soaps, BedHead shampoos, perfumes, and replaced them with truly natural soaps, shampoos, and made my own perfumes using essential oils (and, yes, I threw out all the man stuff too!). It’s been a long road of learning and growing, but I’ve never once felt the need to purchase a bottle of Tylenol or visit the doctor to get a prescription for my family and I don’t miss the smelly Bath&BodyWorks soaps or BedHead shampoos or any of the usual cleaning products!!
I love oils for many reasons and I’m so grateful for what I’ve learned about oils, along with everything else, to help keep my family strong and healthy while serving in Honduras for the past 8 years. I hope my story doesn’t scare you away, but inspires you to be brave & bold!
If you’ve been wanting to learn more about oils and want to take that leap, but not sure where to start… I would love to help you and, I promise, you don’t have to purge like I did but I would love to help you transition at your pace by starting with a Premium Starter Kit from Young Living! Teaching others how to transition to a healthy lifestyle has been a long-time passion of mine and one of the main reasons why I’ve chosen to become a distributor of Young Living.
After so many years of researching and using several different brands… my conclusion? Young Living has checked all the boxes when it comes to my standards and what I expect from quality essential oils. More on this below… so keep reading!
Why Young Living?
I chose Young Living for several reasons…
First, I love Young Living’s Seed to Seal guarantee. From the planting of the seed to the seal on the bottle, Young Living promises to deliver the safest, purest, and ethically sourced essential oils. They are the only company who can make and deliver this guarantee and when it comes to my family, friends, and animals… As a Mama, I don’t settle for less and feel confident using their products!
Second, I love that Young Living is more than just oils. Did you know that?! You can use this one company to slowly (or quickly, if you are like me!) to change your whole home to a chemical-free haven… from household cleaner to makeup, supplements to sunscreen, kids’ vitamins to baby bath gel – and I’m just getting started! This company takes out the guesswork for me and makes things s.i.m.p.l.e (can I get an amen, Mamas?!)!
Third, one of my all-time favorite oil blend is “Purification”. I’ve searched and tried multiple brands to find a similar blend (and smell!), but none came close to matching Young Living’s blend. I’ve used it to repel bugs in our rooms, clear stink out of the air, get awesome respiratory support when I have clogged sinuses, and more. Clearly, we need this blend in our life and it’s only one of many amazing blends exclusive to Young Living. We love their oils!
Finally, I joined because it’s my hope and prayer to build up a side business, a tent-making of sorts, to help support my family and our ministry in Honduras. We are slowly building up an equine therapy ministry that has been a long time dream of ours and I’ve been learning how to use oils to effectively care for our horses and animals! Becoming a member and using the monthly Essential Rewards program helps us save money, earn points to get FREE products, and stay healthy as a family!
For inquiring minds who want to know, Young Living has the optional business side to its company. It has a generous compensation plan for us Mamas (or missionaries or Dads!) looking for a way to earn residual income for our families. If this business peaks your interest, let me know because I would love to help walk you through how it all works!
If you’ve been thinking about trying oils, but not sure where to start… join my team and let me help you get off on a great start! When you decide to become a member and purchase a Premium Starter Kit to enroll, Young Living will send us a $50 ‘thank you’ check, which will go to support my family and our ministry! And if you also join the Essential Rewards monthly program, we will receive a small commission each month from your purchases!
PLUS… I am so stoked to be YOUR oily coach. I love guiding people to live healthier lives for themselves and their families!
So, enrolling would be a triple blessing for you…
- You get amazing products to improve your quality of life.
- Join a great team of people who can help you make the most & best use of your Young Living products (did I mentioned our AH-mazing team? Each of us are serious about our role to help you get the best start on your health journey using oils!!)
- Support my family as we reach our ministry goals & dreams in Honduras!
The one thing people say often when it comes to oils is… “I wish I had done this sooner!”
