The more I researched and learned about essential oils, the more in love I became.
But I quickly discovered their benefits went far beyond just freshening up my cleaning recipes....
Essential Oils aren't a new discovery and have been used since biblical times. They are that aromatic, volatile liquid that is found within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds.
Essential Oils are usually extracted through steam distillation and can contain hundreds of unique chemical compounds.
Because it takes such a large volume of plant material to produce essential oils, they are highly concentrated and more potent than dried herbs. (It takes 5,000 pounds of rose petals to produce 1 kilo or rose oil.)
Essential Oils have protective properties which are the plant’s natural defense mechanism that work the same in our bodies. Essential Oils have a unique ability to penetrate the cell membrane and transport oxygen and nutrients inside the cell, thus giving more support to the immune system.
* Boost the immune system
* Support the body’s natural defenses
* Aid in maintaining cellular regeneration
* Elevate your mood
* Boost stamina and energy
* Help you relax
* Help manage stress and frustration
* Improve mental clarity
* Promote overall health, vitality, and longevity
I love diffusing Essential Oils to lighten the mood or get rid of odors lingering in the air. After learning about the dangerous ingredients in candles, it's nice to have a natural alternative to freshen the air.
They can also be added to homemade cleaning and beauty products, mixed together to create lovely perfumes...
This is where the fun begins. A little research and imagination is all it takes to create natural, non-toxic balms, lotions, and serums with the added benefits of Essential Oils. Click Here for 100+ Ways to Use Everyday Essential Oils.
When I first started using Essential Oils, my focus was on finding the cheapest price. I have since learned, that with Essential Oils, cheap isn't always better.
I know where the grass fed meat I feed my family comes from along with the fresh produce I buy from local farmers.
So why should I compromise on the standard of Essential Oils that I purchase for my family?
With Young Living's "Seed to Seal" process, plants are grown on their own farms without the use of pesticides. (above organic standards) Weeding is done by hand and the essential oils are distilled without chemicals. To guarantee consistent, verifiable quality, the oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs, as well as in third-party facilities.
How To Get Started With Young Living Essential Oils
With so many Essential Oils to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to know where to begin. Thankfully, Young Living has put together a set of the basic Essential Oils.
They are called The Everyday Oils and along with a diffuser are all included in the Essential Oils Premium Kit. (This is the kit I bought when I got started.)
The Premium Starter Kit is $150. (Retail Value = $300)
I recommend getting started this way – as a wholesale member with the Premium Starter Kit. Once you’re comfortable with the ‘everyday’ oils, you’ll be ready to use pretty much any of them!
What Comes in the Premium Starter Kit:
- 10 full 5ml bottles of essential oils (not just samples) including Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Melaleuca Alternifolia (tea tree oil), & Frankincense + the following blends: Pan Away, Thieves, Purification, Stress Away and Joy.
- A home diffuser (retail value alone on this one is $96)
- Essential oils user’s guide
- Citrus Fresh 5-ml
- AromaGlide Roller Fitment (to turn any oil into a roll on)
- Two sample packets each of Lavender, Peppermint, Peace & Calming, Lemon, and Thieves
- Two NingXia Red 2-oz. samples (this is a great supplement for energy)
To make this simple: Wholesale members pay wholesale prices, which are 24% less than retail. There is no obligation to sell or to buy monthly with Young Living and there are absolutely NO monthly minimums or fees.
In fact, 93% of Young Living members only use the oils for their own personal use and do not sell anything.
As a Young Living wholesale member, you also have the option to join our optional frequent buyer’s club called . The ER club allows me to accumulate reward points that I can use toward free product on future orders. I also get a cheaper flat rate on shipping!
