Find Quality Essential Oils

At 30, the doctors thought I had a stroke. Thankfully, I didn't, but I was diagnosed with sudden onset neurological, autoimmune and endocrine issues. After 6 months of testing-- I still had no answers and no options.

Being fed up, I consulted "Dr. Google" and he told me that I was likely in Toxic Overload. I spent weeks researching toxic overload, leaky gut and everything that goes along with it. Once I decided to detox my body and home-- my life changed.

In 3 months, I was improving. In 6 months, the doctors said I was a miracle. But I know the TRUTH and that truth set me free.

Chemicals are killing us.

Statistically, cancer is the number 2 cause of death in the USA. 1,620 people die each day. 1 in 3 cases of cancer in America are directly linked to diet, exercise, and chemical exposure. The American Cancer Association says that only 5-10% of all cancers are genetically linked. That means 90-95% of cancers are under our control!!

There are 1000's of chemicals on the market today. The Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 grandfathered them in. That means that these chemicals have not had safety tests completed and we know very little about the side effects.

Couple that with the fact that the average woman is exposed to over 300 chemicals a day-- 80 of them before breakfast-- we can see why chemical overload is such a problem.

This is why the time to act is NOW. Not tomorrow. Not next week. NOW. While you are still healthy and your family is healthy. It's time to take control back and a huge part of that are essential oils.

Why Essential Oils?
I used to buy store bought essential oils. I used to get skin rashes from them. I thought this was normal and that I had to use them just for cleaning or for the smell. I didn't know that many companies use synthetic or add chemicals to their essential oils to make them more affordable. 
I learned is that essential oils were NOT equal. And in my quest to live a more non-toxic lifestyle-- I was subjecting my family to more chemicals by using certain brands that were full of stabilizers, fragrances, and other additives. 
High-grade essential oils give more power to DIY cleaning products. They can help remove tough grease, stains, adhesives, and more. They help us have a fragrance that is natural and sustainable without those nasty side effects.

They can support our skin, the largest organ of our body, in ways that mass produce products never can because we can create our own custom blends in seconds using essential oils! We can let our skin work like nature intended instead of forcing to try to behave in a certain box. 

With essential oils, we can support wellness using plant based products that our body recognizes. We can aid normal digestion, support proper cardiac function, help maintain proper endocrine function, and so much more! There are at least a dozen essential oils to support each system of the body! 

But since not all essential oils are created equally-- neither are the results!

Ten Questions to Ask An Essential Oil Company or Distributor
Adapted from NEAT Oil Essentials
  • Does their company own any farms on which to raise herbs for oils? Have they taken measures on finding quality land in which pesticides have not been used in the last decade? 
  • Do they grow their products or purchase crops that were grown in an organic method? How do they verify this?
  •  If their company purchases oils from outside suppliers, do they visit the distilleries and farms of those suppliers periodically to observe if the herbs are grown organically, i.e. without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers? 
  • How can they assure us that they purchase wildcrafted herbs that are being responsibly taken and not harming the local environment? 
  • Do you only use crops that were actually harvested at their peak time and, if so, was there an inordinate delay in taking them to the still and into the cookers?
  •  If their supplier makes a mistake in the distillation or harvesting processes that results in an inferior grade of oil, does that supplier sell the oil anyway or do they discard it?
  • Do they know if the the cookers in the distilleries of their suppliers have domed lids or cone shaped lids? Most stills use dome-shaped lids. Cone topped cookers deliver a better grade of oil than dome tops.
  • Do they know if their suppliers supplement the distillation process with solvents to extract additional oil from the plant matter?
  • Do they know if their suppliers bottle their oils directly from the distillery without modifying the composition of the natural oil by adding anything or taking anything away?
  • Do they do in house testing AND 3rd party testing? 
It's important to stand by a brand YOU trust. It may not be my brand, but it better be a brand that you know can support your goals and your way of life!

A word of caution: Please be careful when buying essential oils from 3rd party retailers like Amazon or Ebay. There have been several reports of people going to the hospital after using tampered with products and sellers not issuing refunds or returns for damaged goods. 

Change Your Life In Small Steps
When I got invited to my first oily class and I got my Premium Starter Kit-- it helped my life to change because it gave me control and options! Taking the journey one day at a time, one product at a time is how it's done. You can do this.

It's about taking small steps and saying-- no more! I will not allow these chemical filled products in my home! You can't control all the places you go, but you can control your house and that's HUGE.

I want to invite you to learn along side our team. Let us help you and guide you through the process in a simple, easy fashion.

Step 1: Start with a Premium Starter Kit to gain a membership and 24% off all future products OR buy retail to get a taste and see if you like it.

Which Premium Starter Kit Is Best?
As a wholesale member, there are three Premium Starter Kits to choose from so let's talk about which is right for YOU.

1. "Original" Premium Starter Kit: This is the classic kit and it tends to be the most popular option. It comes with essential oils, a diffuser, samples and a lot more. This is great for people who want to DIY and have a lot of options on how they use their products.

2. Thieves Premium Starter Kit: A Non-Toxic Cleaning Kit in a Box. This is a GREAT way to start if you want to detox your home using pre-made products and a simple, concentrated cleaner-- just add water and off you go!

There is no wrong choice. It's all about your goals and what you want to do. If you need any help deciding, just shoot me a quick email and I can help point you in the right direction.

The "Original" Premium Starter Kit
I want to focus for a second on the original Premium Starter Kit because it is the most popular and can be a bit more confusing. Here’s what you get from Young Living's most Popular Premium Starter Kit, the "Original" Premium Starter Kit:
  • Ten 5ml bottles of essential oils: Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, PanAway, Thieves, Purification, DiGize, Copaiba, and RC. What do they do? Check here.
  • A bonus bottle of the popular StressAway blend.

  • A full-size home diffuser of your choice
  • Aroma Glide roller fitment (to turn any oil into a roll-on)

  • Two sample packets each of Lavender, Peppermint, Peace and Calming, Lemon, and Thieves (for you to share with your friends or to use on yourself-- I don't judge.) 

  • Two NingXia Red 2oz samples (an antioxidant drink concentrate that’s a great supplement for supporting health and wellbeing)
Total value: $300
You pay: $160 – that’s almost 50% off!

Remember-- start small! Start with one product at a time. One oil at a time! There is no need to rush because with every change you make-- you are moving forward towards a bigger picture. Work on tossing the stuff with fragrance-- candles, air fresheners, dryer sheets, dish soap, plug-ins, cleaning supplies.
  • Swap those air fresheners, candles, and plug-ins with a diffuser. 
  • Use Young Living's Laundry Soap, Thieves Cleaner, and Dish Soap instead of retail brands. 
  • Use essential oils on some dryer balls instead of dryer sheets
It's that easy! Just take it one month at a time. I always recommend getting on Essential Rewards (the auto-ship program) because you can make each month a different kind of chemical free box to work on your goals.

Maybe the first month, you can focus on some of the Thieves products. In fact, you can replace 95% of the retail cleaning items in your home with just the Concentrated Thieves Household Cleaner. It's $22 for the concentrated cleaner (it's also in the Thieves Premium Starter Kit) and on average, it can make non-toxic cleaning products for $1 per bottle. That's a WIN!

The next month, focus on personal care items like toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, shampoo. The third month-- beauty supplies like your face wash or body lotion. You can either DIY these items or buy them directly from Young Living.

You matter. Your family matters. And you have the power to take control of your own home. Kick those chemicals to the curb!
