Thank you for visiting my website, and wanting to learn my story! I am a mom, a wife, and a business owner. I run our Party Rentals business from home, and thanks to technology, on the go too! (Jumping J's Party Rentals, Maui, Hawaii. Jumpingjparty.com )
I have 3 daughters, ages 13, 10, and 4, and a 12 year old son. I've always been pretty interested in home remedies, so it seemed natural to look into essential oils.
Well, it can be very overwhelming! I always got scared off by the amount of information out there, so I just (very) slowly did my own research.
I have this ongoing condition called M.I.G. (Mother's Indulgement Guilt) which basically means that I spare no cost when it comes to my kids, but have extreme guilt when purchasing things for myself lol! Because of this, I like to make my own products. Coffee and Sugar scrubs, bath salts, deodorant, body sprays, etc.
So while there are so many reasons to LOVE Young Living, these were my 2 biggest decision factors:
#1. How can I know these oils are safe for use on my family? Well, the Seed to Seal promise gives me the confidence to not only use these oils on my family, but to share how other families can use them too! #2. (This one may seem sort of selfish, but it is what it is! 😜) If I was planning on making my own products, I wanted access to as many different oils as possible! I want to someday have them all! Lol! Young Living has more single oils and blends than any other company that I found, and because of reason number one, I know they're safe!
I bought my Starter Kit in October 2015. My husband actually made the decision for me. There was an info booth set up at Kula Country Farms, where I am the Field Trip specialist during our Pumpkin Patch. I pointed it out and told my husband, "There, look, those are the oils that I was telling you about. That's the company that I want." In my head, (and because of the M.I.G. 😜)I still hadn't rationalized purchasing the Starter Kit. My husband, (I love him to death, he's my biggest supporter) is not the most rational thinker, went over to the booth, started talking to the host, and realized that we were friends with her sister, and their family always rents their Jumping castles and water slides through our company! Long story short, he ended up buying my starter kit for me, and brought me over a shot of Ningxia Red to celebrate! Haha! 🍷🎉🤓
Now, I had my kit, and I was using my oils, and loving it, but I still wasn't serious about it...until I started running out of my oils in January 2016! That's when things got serious! 😂 I COULD NOT be without my oils! So, I ordered more, joined Essential Rewards, and started getting serious about these oils! Come the next month, February 2016, and Young Living had a 10% off the Starter Kit Sale, and I convinced a few of my friends to try it out! I think I sold about 5 kits! I was so happy to have my friends trying these oils! I knew they would love them, I knew they would work for their families, and I just knew this was the start of something absolutely wonderful! Then my direct upline told me about the commissions I was making! I was like wait, I'm gonna get paid??? Haha! I was so happy sharing these oils, that I hadn't even realized I was "Doing The Business"!!! 😲🤓 Now, my team has grown a little more, and I'm more comfortable sharing the oils. I love finding new oil recipes, sharing new ways to use the oils, and more importantly, using them to rid the toxins in my families lives! My family is now naturally healthier, and we can't imagine our lives without Young Living Essential Oils!
