We are now nearly two years into benefitting from Young Living's total body wellness & lifestyle products, for all our needs. There isn't a chemical in our home that hasn't been replaced by a Young Living essential oil infused product. Let's just say: from vitamins to shampoo to household cleaning products to protein drinks and antioxidants to our medicine cabinet there is no part of our home or our lives that does not include Young Living. It is an integral part of our lives. YL now even has a make-up line. But wait!! Ana isn't a makeup user -- well at least she wasn't UNTIL the
line hit the scene at this year's 2017 convention.
But let's rewind a bit ...
We began using essential oils on our "Pets" 17 years ago. We had no guidance and only our belief that the oils should be good for the dogs. Unfortunately, in the beginning, we had little or no results. The "smell" made it difficult for us to fully adapt and make a move to completely integrate the use of the oils on ourselves.
December 2015, we spent $240 plus a $45 membership fee for 5 little bottles from a company we thought had quality oils. Our hope was that these oils would assist me with balancing hormones, because taking HRT was out of the question. Once again we were disappointed and once again the odors from the oils were very unpleasant.
A month later, January 2016, we were introduced to Young Living Essential Oils by our son's girlfriend. At this point we were very skeptical wondering whether or not we could invest in our physical well-being and achieve an all-around "Healthier Life Style" with essential oils. Our goal was still the same and although we had been met with disappointment we were steadfast in our resolve to find a way to regain a healthy stasis in our lives. Traditional prescription meds were wreaking havoc on our stomachs and our need to find a way for non-invasive support for "Total Body Systems" was a necessity. Our journey with Young Living began as we started reading and researching their history. Their transparent organization provided us with information and knowledge about "Essential Oils" we had no idea about. Our initial learning taught us the difference between synthetic, adulterated, fragranced and therapeutic grade oils. We learned about a process called "distillation" where the oil is extracted from plants. We learned that Young Living is the ONLY company with the "Seed to Seal" promise insuring that the company oversees the entire process from the selection of the seeds to the final step of the seal on the bottle.
We are so grateful that we gave YLEO a chance when we had already been so disappointed with essential oils prior.
We have converted over slowly to a "Chemical-Free" home using YL's cleaning products and incorporated essential oils in our daily lives for physical and emotional support. Using YL's oils, vitamins and supplements we also support our physical health, including prostate and hormone health. Another way we enjoy YLEO is using the "Vitality" line of essential oils to include in our food preparation. We also have 2 grown "Kids" and are grandparents to 6 lovely grand "Babies" ranging in ages from 4-12. We enjoy their enthusiasm in living a chemical free life style, proud of what we have shared with our family, showing them that we can control what crosses the threshold of our home. Our goal of creating a toxin free home and to bring well-being into our home has been achieved thanks to YLEO and we share because we care! AND, of course our sharing also gives us the chance not just to help others, but to also help ourselves with the cost of our month’s essentials orders. The circle of giving and sharing and reaping monetary benefits as part of that sharing gives us another layer of joy. We are also blessed now with the opportunity and ability to sponsor a child in Equador at the D. Gary Young Foundation https://younglivingfoundation.org/who-we-are
It is a complete circle for us that seems unending in the positive benefits and influences we can all achieve together!
Recently June 2017 we enjoyed walking (at our leisure) to raise funds for the foundation & sponsor a child from the D. Gary Young Foundation.
We are here to guide and assist you in intergrating chemical toxin-free products into your home as well as mentoring and leading you to build a wellness business with a company you an trust.
