Hey there sweet friend! I am SO glad you are here, and I can’t wait to share this class with you!
Growing up, we learned a lot about nutrition, but very little about the importance of using natural plant based products. By the time I was in college, my body started feeling the overload of toxins and I knew I had to make some changes. We took baby steps on our journey until it became a complete lifestyle change.
This oily life is about wellness, purpose and abundance. There is empowerment, confidence, freedom and simplified health here. I use them all day long, and so does my husband, our toddler and even occasionally our cat.
The magic of essential oils comes from the simple fact that they are straight from nature and they serve a foundational grounding and rooting purpose. This is about supporting our bodies for optimal vibrant life, not the symptom by symptom approach society knows all too well.
If you’ve got questions, know that you aren’t alone! We have ALL had them, so let’s chat.
If you’re new to the oily world, you may not know that when you buy oils, you aren’t just buying a product, you’re joining a community. Each person who signs up with Young Living is assigned to a team, even if you don’t enter a number in the enroller/sponsor boxes. That’s because Young Living is passionate about educating members and supporting you on EVERY step of your journey!
Our community is bursting with dynamic and empowered women who inspire and educate our team. They are beautiful, passionate and driven to provide a better today and tomorrow for their families. I have been blown away by the friendships that bloom and grow within our group. As a team, we offer facebook groups, online classes, webinars, reference resources, and wellness goal planning, in addition to business launch groups and mentoring for those interested in sharing. Together, we help each other reach our wellness and business goals!
Essential oils are the “lifeblood” or “immune system” of a plant, flower, tree, herb, root or seed. Most essential oils are extracted through steam distillation, which when done properly, preserves all those amazing therapeutic constituents from the plant.
While oils might seem like a new thing, they really aren’t. They’ve been around since ancient times and many everyday products use plant based flavoring and extracts. However, this is where it gets super important to know where your oils come from, because a synthetic, diluted or chemically treated compound can cause our body to react in adverse ways.
I did a lot of research and tried various brands before choosing Young Living Essential Oils for my family. The integrity and transparency of Young Living impressed me (I can go visit their farms anytime I want!) and I noticed an incredible difference in strength and aroma. Pure essential oil works with our bodies on a cellular level. Through their Seed to Seal process, Young Living ensures that seeds are placed into soil that has never been treated with chemicals, nor are pesticides ever used on our plants. Each plant is carefully harvested at peak times and distilled at optimal temperatures. The science, testing and care pure into every single batch of oil is absolutely mind-blowing and truly “beyond organic” standards.
5 Reasons Why I Chose Young Living
- Young Living owns farms all over the world and members are welcome to visit anytime to personally see and experience harvesting, distilling and bottling of the the oils
- As the world leader in essential oils, they have over 20 years of experience in the science of harvesting and distilling oils
- Seed to Seal guarantees that every drop of oil is completely pure, ensuring the land is cared for and sustainable
- Because they are completely pure without additives, the Vitality line of oils is recognized as safe to consume internally
- The results speak truth: one drop brings results whereas I previously had to use 5-10 drops of other brands
Essential oils have a rich history since ancient times, even if we are just now starting to hear more about them in daily life. As with anything that gains popularity, it’s important to distinguish between scientific and trustworthy sources and those that are not.
Some great places to start are materials written by doctors and scientists, such as those at Life Science Publishing. You can learn all about the chemistry, science and safe usage of oils from them.
Young Living’s website also shares some wonderful starter information: Essential Oil Safety
As you empower yourself with knowledge, you’ll come across some amazing testimonials about oils, but I can’t share many details with you because of compliance, which is an FDA regulation regarding what those who financially benefit from the sale of products such as oils can legally say about their product. Opinions are great, but finding reputable scientific information will benefit you as well. In addition, when you join our team, you’ll get additional sources of compliant information to guide you on your journey.
Cheap essential oils are cheap for a reason. I just have to say it. I once thought I was saving money buying “the deals”, but I actually wasn’t. Essential oils aren’t regulated, which pretty much means that a manufacturer can put anything they want in that bottle: carrier oil, solvent, filler, chemical additive, watered down floral or citrus water. Sniff a few brands and your nose will tell you which ones are filled with everything BUT essential oil.
Using these kinds of oils can actually cause a lot more harm than good. Young Living has incredible testing to ensure that every oil is 100% pure. There are no fillers, toxins, pesticides, or watering down of oils, ever. You can learn more about Seed to Seal here: www.seedtoseal.com
You may be thinking “that’s great, but I don’t want to join an MLM…they’re all scams”. First of all, take a look at structure of Young Living: the compensation plan is straightforward and you are always getting a product when you buy something. That’s not a scam!
MLMs do not charge more for their product to support their structure. Instead, income is used to produce a superior product (for Young Living, it’s spending millions on caring for their farms) and then poured right back into the independent distributors so they run their own business. It means you’re buying local and helping families to put food on the table. Supporting your friends and individuals instead of the elite top executives of traditional companies.
Feeling overwhelmed? You’re not alone and we are here to help! The minute you say “yes” to oils, our leaders and entire oily community is ready to come alongside you, answer any questions you have and provide you with resources. We’ll work with you at YOUR pace, setting out some simple health and wellness goals, and getting you connected to online classes, facebook groups and more.
Young Living provides all new members with excellent resources and guides to get you started as well! This isn’t about knowing everything right away, it’s a learn as you go, hands on experience!
Joining our team doesn’t mean you have to build a business – there is never any pressure to do that. Nor do you have to order every month. To keep an “active” membership, you only need to order once in a calendar year.
However, if you fall in love with your oils, like most of us have, you may find that the monthly wellness box is a good fit for you. I jumped on that right after I joined and I’m SO glad I did! The money I save, rewards points earned and free gifts are totally worth it.
Sweet friend, I know they are tiny bottles, but remember that each drop is extremely potent and goes a long way. A 15ml bottle has about 250-300 drops in it, so while a bottle of Lavender may cost $23.50 wholesale, each drop is really only about 7-9 cents each. Depending on how much plant material is needed to extract oil, that cost per drop will be much less or much more, but that’s about the average. Compared to a lot of the other products we use, a few cents is nothing!
The Premium Starter Kit was designed with the new oiler in mind. It’s a 50% savings over retail cost, which makes it a steal at $160. For 11 bottles of essential oil, a high quality diffuser (with a 1 year warranty), plus extra samples and goodness, a wholesale membership (24% discount off retail), and all the perks of joining an amazing community, this may just be the best investment into your family’s health that you’ve ever made. It has been for me and so many others!
