What exactly are essential oils? I’m so glad you asked. They are the fluids extracted from plants, herbs, shrubs, roots, and flowers. Young Living extracts them either by steam distilling or cold-pressing to ensure all of the health-giving constituents remain intact. Essential oils are easily absorbed by our bodies and can be found in every cell in our bodies within 20 minutes of application.
What do you use them for? For just about everything! YL has an extensive product list or, if you’re a DIY’er, you can easily combine a few ingredients to custom tailor to fit your style. I’ve made our own face wash, body wash, dish soap and more.
How do you use them? You can diffuse them (a diffuser is included in the starter kit) to make your house smell great, help everyone relax and drift off to sleep and more; you can apply topically (we have lots of roller bottles, sprays, etc. prepped and placed strategically around the house); or some are can be taken internally (those that can be ingested will have a white label marked ‘Vitality’ – it’s the same oil, just different packaging).
Why Young Living? When I started researching essential oil companies, Young Living had, by far, the highest commitment to quality and is 100% transparent about it. Oil companies are not regulated by the government so it was important to me, if I was going to spend good money on them, to know exactly where my oils come from, their purity, how they’re bottled and how they get to my door. You can read the YL Seed to Seal Policy for yourself and walk onto any of their farms to see the integrity first hand and even participate in the process.
Do I have to order monthly or ever sell oils? Absolutely not! If you ever do decide to order monthly, YL has an amazing rewards program where you get points back for free stuff and qualify for free product each month. And, I have never sold oils. I refuse to sell oils. Using oils is a personal decision – one you should carefully research for yourself. You get your own account and can order whenever and however much you wish. I simply share my love for them and help others along their way too. 🙂
What should I get? I always recommend a premium starter kit – it includes a diffuser and 12 of the most frequently used oils. You get over $400 worth of product for only $165! It’s literally all you need to get started, but I also personally send you a welcome packet with oily goodness to help you get going and get educated. I break down the kit here or you can click here to order yours!
If I order a kit, then what? In addition to myself, there is a whole community of oilers ready to guide you and answer any questions you may have. We also have private Facebook groups for additional education, videos, promotions, giveaways and more.
Where do you get your supplies? Mostly Amazon, but all my favorites are linked here.
