Essential oils are all the rage lately but I wanted to share why I use essential oils and how they have benefited me.
I want to start with why I chose Young Living. If I’m honest I started using Young Living because it was the first essential oil company I was introduced to. However the better questions is why did I stay with Young Living and that is an easy question to answer…guaranteed quality. Young Living has a seed to seal guarantee and promise. They abide by very strict guidelines to fulfill their promise to send pure products to your home.
- Their farms and partner farms abide by strict standards.
- They hand-weed and use their own oils on plants for pest control to avoid the use of toxic chemicals.
- They distill on site without chemicals.
- They test every batch. If it doesn’t meet their standards because of weather conditions or for any other reason, they do not bottle it up.
Now… Why do I use essential oils and how have they helped me and my family.
Allergies -I had very bad seasonal allergies that really just started being a year round issue for me. My prescribed medications didn’t seem to be helping me all that much. I was lucky enough to be introduced to oils. I started using lavender, peppermint, and lemon in a vegetable capsule daily. Fast-forward to today and I only take that concoction if my allergies flare up.
Skin -What you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body as well which is why young living products are my go-to skin care products. I use oils for all kinds of skin purposes for myself, my husband, and my kids. I use them on my face as well.
Immune boost -I have found that I recover quicker from an illness if I use my oils to support my immune system. I also love using it on my kids. Specifically using Thieves essential oil to help fight off and prevent illness.
Chemical free -I wasn’t sold on the chemical free house until my child started sucking on his blanket for comfort. All I could think about was all the extra chemicals he was ingesting and how much that scared me. So I made the switch to chemical free laundry soap, hand soap, and cleaning products. And I won’t go back. I also think this helped with my allergies too.
There are soooo many other ways I use my oils to benefit my health and my family but above are the main ways so far.
Please feel free to ask me for more information and any questions you might have. My goal with this post is only to spread awareness of how essential oils can benefit the entire house and how they have helped me however, if you are interested in trying the oils or even signing up for a starter kit (seriously an amazing deal) click here.
Hope this helps you move forward with your healthy journey!
