My New Journey with Essential Oils

HOW I STARTED WITH ESSENTIAL OILS

So, I’ve actually been interested in essential oils for over a year now but just started doing a little bit of research on them back around March or so of this year.  This is when I began focusing on cleaning up my food lifestyle and mainly started trying to eat those foods that God created and focusing especially on eliminating foods that trigger my tummy issues, as well as joint pain, that I’ve dealt with for so long.  If you’ve been following me, then you know that about 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease that destroys the thyroid and ultimately causes hypothyroidism in approximately 90% of hypothyroid cases.  Hashimoto’s causes so many issues, for which I am the poster child!  So basically, I just wanted to start living a healthier more natural lifestyle as much as possible.  I am taking baby steps, but already I have seen so many benefits from it.

 

My 1st baby step was to clean up my foods. My 2nd baby step was to dive into essential oils!  I work full time and have a very active family, so I’ve not had as much time to swim in the pool of essential oils as I prefer.  I may not ‘get there’ as quickly as I’d like, but I’m gonna get there! I have fallen in love with every aspect of it, and am surprised daily at the number of benefits essential oils offers! You can basically use essential oils for EVERYTHING!! –> cleaning your home, beauty products, your immune system, for colds, for muscle & joint pain, to eliminate odors in your home, stress relief, relief from headaches, for your pets, and there is even a line of products for your baby!  Young Living offers so much, and I am excited to be on their team! 

WHY YOUNG LIVING

My research kept drawing me to Young Living essential oils.  I decided to go with Young Living over other oil companies because all the research I did keep drawing me back to their Seed to Seal promise and their high-quality standards.

Seed to Seal - step by step

They have all their own farms and they personally distill their own oils.  (You can actually visit the farms for yourself!) Their oils go beyond just being organic … even the soil in which they grow the plants has never been treated with pesticides or chemicals. I absolutely love this fact because I am trying to get away from everything that is toxic and unnatural as much as I possibly can.  This means you’re using an oil with just one ingredient.  If there is anything that I’ve learned recently, it’s that you cannot depend on a label’s claim to be organic or all natural…you have to be sure to look at the ingredients.  The fewer ingredients there are on the label, the more likely to be organic.

With Young Living, there are no fillers, no additives and no chemicals whatsoever.  Many oils that are more budget friendly (especially over the counter oils) are full of pesticides and toxins that begin from the initial start. There are companies out there that cut corners to save money so they can offer a cheaper oil, which is disheartening, especially to those who do not know what to look for. Many essential oils are sold more cheaply because companies cut corners, but not Young Living. Their products are purely organic with the seed to seal purity promise!

HOW TO GET STARTED

The most affordable way to get started with Young Living is by purchasing any starter kit and enrolling as a member. The benefit of being a member is that you get a 24% discount on products forever and always. I personally chose the Premium Starter Kit and I LOVE it.

It comes with 11 of the most commonly used oils–including Digize for tummy issues (one of my favorites!),  your choice of diffuser (I chose Desert Mist), and lots of samples including the Thieves household cleaner, which is amazing. This really is the best bang for your buck (it’s the only thing on the Young Living website that is HALF OFF!) and it saves you a ton of money compared to buying each thing individually.  The Desert Mist diffuser is around $80 if purchased alone! So, you can see why ordering a starter kit can be so beneficial to your budget. You can also order as a retail customer, but you won’t get the 24% discounted pricing.

How to Order:

  1. Click here and enroll as a MEMBER when you choose your Starter Kit. In order to be on my team make sure my sponsor ID number 16228899 appears in the “Enroller” and “Sponsor” fields. {And just to clarify, being a member does NOT mean you have to sell, it just gives you the discounted prices!}    **(To see a video to help you in the enrollment process, click here.)
  2. Decide if you’d like to enroll in the monthly rewards program known as Essential Rewards. (This is completely optional.) This is an automatic shipment program that you can completely customize to include anything you want from Young Living delivered to your door each month. You can choose from the Thieves cleaning products, makeup, baby products, vitamins, oils and so much more. You definitely don’t have to enroll in the monthly program, but I highly recommend it because you can earn free oils, points back, reduced shipping cost, and other perks too.
  3. After you enroll I’ll send you a welcome email to fill you in on everything you need to get started with your oils!

You don’t have to purchase the oils to get started as a member.  You can also purchase ANY starter kit. For example, they offer the Thieves Starter Kit, as well as the Savvy Minerals Makeup Starter Kit!

But honestly, if you are interested in essential oils at all, now is the time to invest in the Premier Starter Kit and take advantage of the 10% discount while it is still available!

THE COMMUNITY IS KEY!

Once you join Young Living, you’ll be able to join an amazing team of women and families that are all on this same journey.  I joined with one of my favorite bloggers who I’ve loved & trusted for a long time now.  I  watched her begin this oily journey just a month or so before I did, and I am enjoying traveling this journey together!  In just the short time she has been with YL, she has taught me so much.  The team I am connected with is such an amazing team that is beyond helpful.  Having the support of a great team makes all the difference in the world when it comes to getting started with oils. Once you join my team as a member, you are welcomed into that tribe as well. You’ll get full access to our support groups that will teach you how to use your oils, free classes, business mentorship (if you ever choose to go that route!) and so much more. Our team is AMAZING.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I am happy to help! Also be sure you’re following my Instagram wellness page @alifeblessedliving to follow along with me on this journey! I look forward to the journey together with YOU!

Blessings,
