How to Get Started With Young Living Essential Oils
Just a few years ago, I had never heard of what essential oils where. They existed, but I had no idea what they were or how they worked. It wasn’t until a family member introduced me to Young Living’s peppermint and Thieves essential oils that I became introduced, and then it wasn’t until a few years later that I made the plunge myself. Since then I’ve been hooked.
When I find something I really like, I share it. And while it took me a while to jump into the oily world, I honestly don’t know what took me so long, because I use these oils every single day and would be so sad without them.
I use oils to support so many facets of my life, whether that is with a healthy immune system, a focused mind, emotional support, a way to wind down at the end of the day with a few drops of lavender in a salt bath, or even using some peppermint topically for neck tension. I even ordered the Thieves laundry soap last week after realizing I may have sensitivities to the detergent I was currently using, and it should be here any day now (super excited!) So there are unlimited ways to use the products that Young Living has and for a sometimes frazzled entrepreneur, that can be a lifesaver. Here were my main reasons for joining:
Cultivating a non-toxic lifestyle and using oils daily
Sharing something I truly could get excited about
Generating an income source
Why Young Living?
There are many essential oil companies out there, so why Young Living? I did my own research before joining, and I would suggest anyone else to do the same. I also did an intuition test, where I held a Young Living bottle in one hand and a bottle from another company in the other to see which one felt better. Kind of like the Marie Kondo “Spark Joy” method. Young Living won, and I can see now looking back that my intuition was right. After joining YL I was welcomed into the community, and the support and resources has been fantastic. When I spoke with someone who joined another company, I heard that they had received zero support and felt like they were off on their own with no community. It made me sad to hear that, but in reinforced for me the decision I had made.
So as pioneers of essential oils, YL has been around since 1994, and they have this really unique Seed to Seal guarantee, which no other company has. This means they oversee the production and quality of their oils from the minute that seed is planted to the second the seal is placed on the bottle. Because of their high-quality guarantee and wide variety of blends and products available, including a line of oils meant for internal use, these are now always the oils I use and recommend to others. So today I’m going to walk you through exactly what these oils can do for you and how they can bring such a benefit to your home and lifestyle.
First of All, What are Essential Oils?
At the base of everything, essential oils are the pure potent oils of a plant extracted through a distillation process. Essential oils can come from any oil-producing plant, such as herbs, root, the rinds of citrus fruits, and certain trees. They have been used for centuries for all kinds of various needs. There are so many options of essential oils out there, so I totally get that it can be overwhelming. But I’ll help you make sense of it. There are three main ways to use essential oils.
Topically: Essential oils are more potent than the plants they come from, and because of this, it only requires a drop or two to receive the effects of the oil. Oils can be diluted with carrier oils such as almond oil, liquid coconut oil, or another mild skin-friendly oil to for lotions and skincare items, or even to create roller bottles for topical use on the go. Because ingredients can pass through the skin barrier and into the bloodstream in mere seconds, it’s important to use the bests oils out there to get the best effects and results.
Aromatically: Diffusing oils can definitely make your home smell amazing, but it also affects the olfactory and limbic system in the brain to create a positive change in mood and enhance feelings of calm, relaxation, and well-being. Using oils aromatically is one of my favorite ways to use them, and with certain oil blends I can literally feel a distinct difference in my mood when diffusing. For aromatherapy, 4-8 drops can also be used in an essential oil diffuser with water to aromatically diffuse the oils through into the air. This is a great alternative to chemically scented candles. I will admit, I have always loved a great candle, but when faced with the chemical lists in most scented candles, I’ll take my oils any day.
Internally: In the same way that certain herbs and ingredients can be used internally and provide positive effects when ingested, so can essential oils. Of course, some oils are considered “hot”, such as peppermint, oregano, and Thieves blend, so such oils need to be used with care. But other oils such as the anti-inflammatory copaiba essential oil are so mild that even mothers can use it for babies who are teething.
Young Living is Just a Win-Win All the Way Around
So you may be thinking right now, “Alright, so I get the benefits of EO’s, but what would be the point of ordering from Young Living when I can just go to the store and get them?” Here are a couple reasons:
1.) To-your-door delivery - because there’s nothing more luxurious than having your oils hand-delivered and sent straight to your door. And also earning rewards points with the Essential Rewards program has garnered me free oils every month. Seriously. Which leads me to…
2. Essential Rewards Program: This is Young Living’s monthly loyalty program which is a way to earn back points that you spend on products each month. The only requirement is to spend 50pv (which usually equals $50) each month to stay active in the program. The points earned back give you the ability to spend them on free items. For example, I’m expecting a package of Thieves laundry soap and abundance essential oil any day now that I ordered for free purely through my essential rewards points. I just paid shipping. And notice I mentioned a laundry soap. This $50 per month is money that you would be spending anyway at the store on household needs. Because there are so many other products available besides oils…
3.) Young Living Is much more than oils - This may come as a surprise to many people, but Young Living is a lifestyle company that carries so many other products besides just oils. They carry a whole body care line of shampoos, lotions, deodorants, toothpaste, and non-toxic makeup (It’s a line called Savvy Minerals, and it’s amazing) and even a whole line of amazing supplements and protein shakes! There is also a non-toxic household cleaner, soaps, and sanitizers with the Thieves line. Seriously, you can say goodbye to those random trips to CVS. Opt for non-toxic alternatives and have it all delivered to your door and earn loyalty points along the way. It’s a win-win-win.
4.) Seed to Seal Guarantee - Young Living oils and products have a high-standard quality guarantee that no other brand has. Young Living even owns their own farms, and is the only essential oils company to do so. In this way, Young Living oils and products are of stellar quality, which means no fillers, no chemicals, no added scents, no toxins, and no funny business.
5.) Generating an Income Source - Joining Young Living also allows you the ability to create an additional income source by sharing the oils with family and friends. Young Living is a referral business, which means they don’t spend money on advertising or store promotions. Their business is you. And each time you share with family and friends, you can earn commissions sent straight to your bank account. It’s the best feeling ever. There is no obligation to do so and it is never required, but once you experience the oils, it’s hard not to share. In this day and age so many people are looking for additional income sources in ways that they truly resonate with and believe in. Young Living has done that for so many people, and it has already changed lives and brought financial freedom for so many people around the globe.
