As a frequent kefir-, kombucha-, and green smoothie-making, farmers market-going, hiking, biking, running, triathloning, health-conscious (but not perfect) mom of twin boys, it wasn't exactly a stretch for me to investigate essential oils!
An ardent advocate of the arts of thriving (not merely surviving), living with VERVE, seeking adventures (more along the lines of Winne the Pooh and Piglet than climbing Mt. Everest!), finding EVERY silver lining, basking in the glory of Nature, having a blast with my family, practicing gratitude, and insisting on a baseline of happiness, I find that using Young Living essential oils fits in harmoniously on many levels. In order to pursue the above "arts," it is important for me to stay "above the wellness line," and using Young Living essential oils every day, helps me do that in a natural way. These oils are, after all, the "life force" of plantkind! What could be more natural than that?! Furthermore, the purity of Young Living's oils instills great confidence in me, as do Young Living's farming practices, and their control over every aspect of the production process from "Seed to Seal."
Now, as I said, I am far from perfect in such areas as diet, getting enough sleep, living chemical-free, etc., but 1) I may NEVER be! Ya gotta LIVE!, 2) I'm closing the gap. I am also a firm believer in trying to "crowd out" my less-virtuous habits with better ones. Adding these oils and products into my wellness regime is an enjoyable and natural way to do that.
