Young Living Essential Oils Canada - Meet Tonia and Colin McArthur
5 years ago we never would have imagined that Young Living Essential Oils would be the company that set us free in so many ways. At the time we lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and had big dreams of one day retiring to the Okanagan in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. But that was something that we did in our 50's and seemed so very far away.
Young Living Canada made that dream a reality and so much sooner than we ever imagined!
We have always been advocates for wholesome and organic foods, alternative health, great wine and a good time. Colin worked in the fitness industry inspiring others to eat better food and exercise smarter and Tonia worked with special needs children by day and had a wine tasting business at night. We had careers in fields that seemed to align with the things that mattered to us yet we didn't feel healthy, happy or fulfilled.
In our spare time we had been making big changes to our diet and home lifestyle in an effort to remove as many, if not all of the toxins and synthetic chemicals from our home. This included our cleaning supplies, personal care products, perfumes and fragrances, shampoo, conditioner, skin care, beauty care and everything in between.
We considered the ways that our bodies were absorbing the products we were using and threw away candles, air fresheners, linen-sprays along with any and all cleaning products with ingredients we couldn't pronounce. Then we were introduced to worlds top essential oil producer Young Living Essential Oils Canada and we finally found the answer we were looking for to substitute almost every last product and the transformation was complete.
We could now provide ourselves, our friends and ultimately our family a cleaner environment to live in
We purchased our Young Living Premium Starter Kit and began diffusing therapeutic grade essential oils to purify the air in our home naturally and added scent that was not only non-toxic for us to be inhaling into our bodies, but also beneficial to our health and wellness.
This was a very new concept we were excited to introduce to everyone we knew!
We had been using essential oils for many reasons prior to finding Young Living but never had we truly explored all of the many benefits each little bottle could have on us. Peeking through our Young Living Canada Product Guide, we eventually decided to try the non-toxic Thieves Household Cleaner, which is now all we use on every surface in our home including toilets and mirrors! We substituted our dish soap, hand-soaps, laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and much more for Young Living's amazing products. We began to experiment with DIY recipes to include the power of our essential oils for things like deodorant, dryer sheets, doggie shampoo, skin care products, outdoor sprays and much more.
Young Living Essential Oils Canada has allowed us to take control of the products we are using in all aspects of our lives and we can rest assured that anything being absorbed into our skin is not full of synthetic chemicals our bodies are unable to process properly.
Finally, the last piece of the puzzle fits right into place and we are all happier and healthier than we have ever been. It's no surprise then that we began to share our experiences and love for the products with others. We both freed ourselves from the chains of our 9-5 and became full time Young Living Independent Distributors after and are very proud to be introducing the products and lifestyle we love to as many like minded people as we can! Oh yea, we also moved the Kelowna 15 years ahead of schedule!

How do you know what essential oils you could use to help but your body back into balance?
In the beginning of our journey we didn't really know either and to be honest, we still don't. We're a really busy couple with full time day jobs, a hoe based business, a dog, our hobbies, marriage and a super fun social life. It's really handy for us - and probably for your busy life, too - when we're on the go and only have a minute or two to scan and run.
The iTovi is a tiny handheld device that you hold facedown in your palm (with the oval metal portion touching your skin) and through an app on your phone you activate it to scan your body. The whole thing takes about three minutes from turning your iTovi on, to opening the app to seeing the results of your scan.
What is the scan actually doing?
When you are scanning your body, the iTovi device is essentially making notes of your biomarkers (blood pressure or pulse, as one example) in your body. Your iTovi takes into account your gender and age range and selects products - we only ever scan for essential oils - that will help to put your body's biomarkers back into balance.
We have found in our home that the iTovi scanner is most effective if we're consulting this teeny device about once a week so we typically scan on Mondays but you can choose whatever day works best for you. You can set the scanner to either provide 3, 5, 7 or 10 suggestions. We have ours set to select 10 for us but if we have a friend over who is either new to oils or just a little curious we might not overwhelm them with 10, so we definitely ask how many suggestions they'd like. Totally up to you and very easy to change in the app on your phone through the settings.
Step #1 - Purchase your iTovi Scanner - you have 2 plan options but we always recommend the full buy out to avoid monthly payments forever. It def saves you money.
Step #2 - Download the app on your phone once it arrives
Step #3 - Enter your information into your profile in the app
Step #4 - Start your first scan!
When your products list comes up the oils closer to the top are the more recommended suggestions. What we typically like to do is either diffuse a few of the oils together a couple of times over the next week and wear a few of the others topically. Since both of us are scanning together (#happyspousehappyhouse) we might compare oils and see if we have any that are #samesies so we can diffuse those ones in particular since we'll both get the benefits from those oils.
Easy Peasy Resources For Balancing Your Body
There is no overthinking, no wondering if you got it right or worse, spending hours on the computer trying to make sure you're buying the right oils for you. The iTovi takes a lot of the guess work out of what our monthly orders look like. We make our list of oils from our scans that we don't have and build our Essential Rewards orders that way. #lifemadesimple.

Everyone is giving their two cents worth with all of these before and after photos (typically not the same person, or the same outfit, let alone the same location.... so?).
This isn't about the way that you look in a bathing suit. This is about how you feel in your body in your sweatpants OR your bathing suit. Healthy, whole, happy, glowing, strong and fit. The way you look is a byproduct of treating your body with wellness and healthy goodness. The point of life is to enjoy it - so what I'm not going to tell you to do is diet. Diets are notoriously unsuccessful because you go back to the lifestyle you were living before the diet once you've either reached your target (and celebrated) or after you decided it became too difficult.
What if, instead, we thought about adding something simple to our lifestyle and just making a tweak or two to start?
#1 - Energy is something we all complain about at some point in our lives. We might be stressed, overworked, have a hard week with the kids (well not us, but you might have kids), or maybe we're just prone to getting sick. Building up a healthy immune system isn't just about eating right and exercise. Supplementation is very important. Even as vegetarians Colin and I don't ever get enough of the greens we need every single day. With this first supplement added to your daily regime, you will begin to feel increased and long lasting energy. No crashes in the middle of the day - just better balanced energy all day long.
Multigreens from Young Living is Health Canada Approved as a Natural Health Product hat will help to support your whole body. Some of the amazing benefits are helping to support healthy liver function, a great source of antioxidants, protects your cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, a great source of amino acids and a fantastic supplement to use if you enjoy working out.
One or two capsules a day is a very simple addition to your regime! So what's up next?
#2 - Do something creative. Your energy is stuck, you're bored, you're forgetting to be creative. Sing one of your favourite songs, write a poem, paint a picture, design a graphic, do a yoga practice, make a mala bracelet, play a song on the guitar, whatever it is. Release some energy and pour it into the world. Your tension will subside and your happiness will increase. Plus, now that you're taking Multigreens every single day, you have plenty more energy to be creative. Am I right?
#3 - Replace one cleaning product in your home with Thieves Household Cleaner. Each week, find a new way to use this cleaner, made from plants, minerals and essential oils from Young Living, to replace another cleaner in your home. This bottle will stretch a very long way, especially once you experience its versatility. Grab yourself a few spray bottles, add one capful and fill with distilled water for glass and window cleaner. Add 3-4 capfuls to another for every day surface cleaning including cabinets, cupboards, sinks, walls and baseboards. Lastly, add 4-5 capfuls for tubs and toilets - which darn near covers every single surface in your home. One single capful in your mop water with three drops pine and three drops lemon - hot damn! You will never, ever go back.
Now why would talk about cleaner? Why and how will this switch be better for your health?
My friends, I have made it part of my mission to educate about "fragrance" as an umbrella term that allows manufacturers to sneak toxic chemicals into our every day products. Cleaning your floors and surfaces with one quick switch of product is simple. You do not need to use dirty products to clean your home. When your body systems are bombarded by toxic chemicals all day long, you become tired, your immune system is busy fighting off this yuck - but this is any easy, simple fix.
There is a better way, and accounts are free. Start today and we'll help you every step of the way.
