About twenty years ago, I heard about essential oils. I heard that Lavender was the oil for relaxing and calming. Peppermint was amazing for treating headaches with a refreshing aroma. Tea Tree did wonders for acne. I began using them on a daily basis! Now, looking back, I laugh at how little I knew about the world of essential oils.I try to live my life as healthy as possible. The benefits are a wonderful way to promote wellness and health for my family.
Therapeutic grade oils are almost never sold in retails stores. They might be organic, but they distill it in a way that is cheaper and faster (hence the cheaper price tag) which kills the compounds that make up the molecules; meaning that the healing properties are gone. So, don’t expect healing properties from them. When oils are distilled at low temp, low pressure the healing properties are preserved, but it takes a lot of time and a lot more money to do it that way. Over 90% of the oils that are sold as “essential” in America are food or fragrance grades and are NOT suitable for healing applications. Young Living oils are safe to apply, diffuse AND ingest... because they are 100% organic. If you see "do not ingest" on the bottle, run in the other direction because you're basically buying it for the smell only. Just like the food industry, "legally" there only has to be 10% of the actual oil in there to be considered 100% peppermint (or whatever oil it is)... which is part of the reason Young Living oils are so great- there are no fillers, additives, etc etc. Truly, you get what you pay for with essential oils. Honestly, I wouldn’t put any other brand on my husband, boys or myself other than Young Living.
If you are joining my team, two things that I recommend:
One is purchasing the $160 Premium Starter Kit and picking an Essential Rewards Kit.
(I recommend the Premium Starter Kit ($160), Premium Starter Kit w| Aria ($260) or Premium Starter w| Thieves)
With the premium starter kit, you are getting $400-$500 worth of product for $160-$260. It is the best bang for your buck! It comes with 11 oils, a diffuser ($100-$200 value alone), ningxia red packets, sample oils + sample cards, roller lid, information on all of the oils + the YL product guide.
Make sure you choose the wholesale option for those lower ordering prices!
OPTION ONE | Wholesale Customer * recommended
OPTION TWO | Retail Customer
and make sure the number #3246144 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields.
There you go! These are my recommendations on how to purchase the Young Living Oils & how to integrate them into your budget + life. Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you may have about this post or the oils in general!
