I have become a Young Living fanatic. But I wasn’t always a Young Living member. I had to be persuaded, like most people. But now that I am I can’t hold in my passion for these oils.
I’ve shared why I started using essential oils, for support with my children’s immunity. My history with oils didn’t start out with Young Living, I originally started with a company called Plant Therapy.
Why did I switch then?
The main reason being that the oils that came in my set gave me terrible headaches.
I was so excited to open up each bottle in my 14 bottle kit and smell them all. But I honestly hated the smell of all but 3-germ fighter (their knock off of thieves), lemon and eucalyptus. Lavender didn’t smell great but I would use it on my kids but when I tried diffusing it at night in my bedroom and spraying it on my pillow I was up all night with a massive headache but I couldn’t get the smell out of my pillow to finally sleep. I would try and talk myself into using the oils in my diffuser necklace, thinking I just needed to adapt to their smell. I think I ended up throwing away that necklace out of pure frustration!
Funny thing is, I didn’t even think that the germ fighter was even working to support immunity. My kids were still getting sick. And they weren’t bouncing back from sickness any quicker. I resigned myself to believing that I was just not an oily person if I couldn’t handle their scents.
My good friend ordered her Premium Starter Kit from Young Living. Since Young Living is the leading brand in essential oils, I of course had already heard of them but like most people I felt sticker shock at their prices so that’s why I ended up choosing a cheaper brand. I knew I needed to smell these oils, to put them to the nose test. Would I still hate oils after smelling them? I had to see. So I went on over and sat on the floor and smelled about 20-30 oils. All of them, right in a row.
And that started my affection with Young Living. I needed these oils.
I was in complete shock at how different her Young Living oils smelled compared to mine. Simple oils such as Lavender and Lemon smelled 100% different. And yes, I did smell them side by side. I thought I was going crazy. But my friend smelled the difference as well and also got a headache from Plant Therapy.
I went home and couldn’t shake why they smelled so vastly different. At an oils class my friend held, I learned the answers to my questions.
The FDA does not regulate essential oils. They only require 5% of essential oil to be in a bottle to label it pure, therapeutic, and even organic. The rest of the bottle is something called solvents, to stretch the oil longer. Solvents such as alcohol and hexane. Solvents cause cancer. Cancer. I was ingesting these oils, now I was mad.
Why are oils sold more cheaply in your local pharmacy, grocery store and online? Because companies cut corners to save money and make more profit. I feel for their trick. Despite doing all the research for a reputable company that wasn’t expensive I was still tricked. I suffered the consequences-headaches, stomaches, believing oils don’t work and just simply smell bad.
But those are all lies. Essential oils don’t cause headaches, stomaches and they do work! I’ve seen them work!
It’s amazing what switching to a company with integrity can do.
Young Living is true to their word, they don’t cut corners. The only thing in their bottles is pure essential oils. They promise it! I’ve smelled the difference and I’ve seen them work in the short time that I’ve been using them.
The stubborn streak in me felt a challenge after smelling the different brands and learning about how they cut corners, I felt challenged to jump in with both feet into Young Living and prove that they work. Even if it was just for myself. Yet now, I’m a passionate believer! These oils work for me and can work for you!
Every home needs to start dumping the chemical laden toxins in their home and start jumping into the healthier, chemical free lifestyle.
