I am a busy mom of 3 kids, and I work full time as an X-ray Tech. I am so in love with essential oils due to the positive benefits they have provided my family! Since starting our use of oils, my household is able to be almost completely chemical free, which is a big deal to us. I love being able to clean my house without all the harmful toxins in traditional cleaners. We also love being able to keep healthy while enjoying the wonderful smells of oils. There is nothing better to me than being able to turn to the essence of what God has given us to keep my family healthy and happy :) Oils are such a large part of our daily routine, from the moment we get up to the moment we go to bed. Each bedroom has their own diffuser, including a dolphin one in the big kids room. The diffusers in the bedroom help provide a restful sleep, something that we struggled with before. Allergy season is upon us in full force, and the first thing to help keep us functional was the allergy blend that I swear by, which is lavender, lemon, and peppermint. Not only are we keeping with natural products, but everything smells so good and clean too :) With being so busy, there are times where I need some extra motivation or energy, and the diffuser helps then too. My favorite smells in the diffuser are Joy and EnRgee. Thieves is the blend that acts as an immunity booster, and is the main ingredient in my cleaning products. There is a YL product called Thieves Cleaner, and I have spray bottles of it ALL over my house!!! I can NOT stand the smell of harsh chemicals, and I always worry what breathing in those chemicals are doing to us. Thieves is made up of Cinnamon bark, clove, Lemon, and Rosemary so as you can imagine, it smells amazing and I now love cleaning. I have also transitioned into making my own hand soap, dish soap, and shower soap. It is so amazing to me how beneficial these little bottles of magic are :) And my creative side gets a chance to experiment with new recipes and new things to do without baking, so I am saving myself a few calories to boot ;)
One of the reasons I love Young Living so much is the Seed to Seal promise this company has. They have their own farms, all over the world, so they are able to oversee each step of the process. I love knowing exactly what is in my bottles, something that not every company can promise.
One of the first things I recommend getting is the Premium Starter Kit (PSK). It sounds expensive. But, the way I like to explain it is, medical care is expensive. And, a lot of people I know deal with many things that can send you to the ER or to a doctor very easily. If something in this kit saves you an ER visit, or a couple doctors visits, by keeping you healthy, then this kit is paid for :) This can also help replace the cost of air fresheners, cleaners and so much more :) Heck, my kids love exploring the world of oils, so they are happy and occupied for significant amt of time. That alone you can't put a price on!! Sleeping better, feeling happier. Its all worth it to me :) The PSK starts at $160 and is pictured above. It comes with 11 oils, a diffuser, a roller top, some samples, and some empty sample bottles. There are different diffuser options, which is where the price can go up a bit, but honestly I love the diffusers that come with the base kit price the most, so it isn't a stretch to just stick with one of those. If you want to start slow, that of course is an option too. Just let me know what you want, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or wish to order anything. I will be happy to get you started on your own oily journey!!
