I never imagined I'd be where I am today...
(and just in case you don't read to the end.... anyone can take the same small steps away from chemical ick and move toward )
About 11 years ago my 2 boys were pre-school and kindergarten age and they had developed pretty severe asthma and allergies and were on 6 different DAILY "maintenance" medications. AND they were still constantly sick and having flare ups. ALL. THE. TIME.
I wish I could tell you that exact moment when I woke up and realized that there's a possibility that what was in our environment was potentially triggering a lot of their problems. Doesn't matter... I did finally wake up. A friend told me about another friend who was using these oils....
I realized that the laundry soap I used, the perfume I wore, the shampoos and soaps and toothpaste we used, the pretty candles I burned and the foods we ate (what???? Gogurt & a cheese stick isn't a "meal"?????) all of these things were contributing to my boys poor state of health.
So I just started adding only good-for-us things and started eliminating bad-for-us things. Food was tricky, especially when we identified food sensitivities - getting creative with healthy food that would appeal to young boys became a game for me. I noticed almost immediately the benefit of not using chemically scented laundry soap and personal care (shampoos etc.). That's stuff that touched their skin and they breathed it in all day long. With that gone, their body stood a chance of healing.
POOF! 6 Medications are GONE!
The health impact of pulling chemicals out of our home was unexpected & astonishing. I replaced ALL cleaners with just one... Thieves cleaner. BUH BYE chemical perfumed things too. Instead we "scented" things with oils = natural. The body sure does love them! I learned how flexible oils are and how powerful they are as cleaners and boy did they help with soothing crabby kids and crabby mom (I'll own it. Sometimes.)!
Essential oils are like the duct tape of the natural world. So many benefits and uses.
My boys were able to get off of ALL 6 prescription asthma and allergy medications. (fist pump!)
It's about lifestyle. Choosing to get the chemical yuck OUT & get real foods and health supporting oils and supplements IN.
We kept it simple.
You can too. I can help.
Get started today with one of the starter kits. I started with a starter kit of oils and diffuser and then realized I had to get a different cleaner, so I started trying Thieves home cleaning products = fell in love. They are so cost effective too... go ahead, compare to stuff you find in Sprouts or WholeFoods. Now I simply rotate what I order each month based on what we need (lotion? laundry soap? Ningxia Red? Nitro for my afternoon energy?) and get TONS free (like, I'm talking $$$$$$$$$$$ of freebies) with the Essential Rewards program (totally flexible which I love).
30-60-90 days are going to pass in your life anyway... WHAT IF you could dramatically shift something that isn't so perfect in your family's health by adopting a lifestyle that focuses on getting chemicals out and supports you physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially? What would that mean to you ?
The financial part???
Young Living is a great business for just about anyone (pssst! it can be done while working or as stay at home mom) whether you are wanting to create enough income to pay college tuition, stay at home with kids or retire your spouse by choice - this is a great financial vehicle. Be sure to look HERE
on the page where you can check the business out. I've added some great financial security to my family by simply sharing Young Living with others. I'm well on my way to being able to give my hubby the option to keep working where he is.... or not. I love my oils. I can't keep quiet about them. Young Living is happy to reward me for this sharing and now I am creating more options to say "yes" to things.
When you join our team (we're called the Oilnuts) you'll have loads of support no matter where you live. We totally understand that a journey like this can be a little bit overwhelming and we want to make it no-brainer easy-peasy.
I'd love to hear from you with your questions, I know I sure had many when I first started!
