Essential Oils

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils have been around for thousands of years and are used in a variety of ways from boosting our immune system to enhancing our physical and emotional wellness to purifying our home with toxic free cleaners and refining our beauty regimen.

Essential Oils by definition are the highly concentrated, aromatic essences of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, resins and flowers. They are fundamental to the life of the plant. In a nutshell, they are the plant’s natural defense and protective mechanisms. Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come.

Why Young Living Essential Oils?

To be frank, I trust Young Living. I trust their products because I trust their process. They are the only company that has the Seed to Seal Promise. This means that they never add or alter anything from the time the seed goes into the ground, through distillation, to the time the bottle is sealed. Yes, that also means they don’t use pesticides…ever. You can read more on that here. Also, I find it really scary that there only needs to be 5% of pure essential oils for a bottle to be labeled 100% pure. Because of this, most oils you will find in stores are filled with fillers and chemical additives. Additionally, Young Living is the only essential oils company that has FDA approved products.

How do I sign up?

I’m so happy that you have continued to read this far down and are interested in starting your oily, toxic free journey. I would love to have you join my team.

When you sign up with a wholesale account/ distributor, that means you get 24% off retail price on all products! Even if you never have the desire to sell, wholesale is the best way to go!!

Below are the two options for signing up:

  1. Wholesale Customer– I highly recommend this!
    • You start with the Premium Starter Kit (11 of the most popular oils, a diffuser, and sample goodies to try)
    • No renewal fee. You just have to make ONE $50 PV order PER YEAR to keep your account active.
    • Young Living calls their wholesale members distributors but this does not mean you ever have to “do the business” or sell oils. No pressure ever.
    • Share naturally with family and friends. If someone enrolls with your member number you will be compensated…again never pressure to sell but you will be surprised how many people become interested in your new passion.
  2. Retail Customer
    • No starter kit purchase required
    • Continue to order whenever you would like but you will pay 24% more than wholesale (full retail price)

I love that Young Living offers both options with no pressure to share the oils no matter what option you decide. However, I will say that the wholesale membership cost is quickly recovered simply by the savings of the retail price and then of course if family and friends are interested (they will be) and sign up under you.

  • As most of you know, we’ve been ditching and switching most of the toxic products in our home over the past year and replacing them with better plant based products. The process felt overwhelming to start with but each month we tossed one thing and it made it feel so much more attainable. .
When people ask me where to start, I almost always say ditch the toxic laundry detergent and dryer sheets. This affects the entire family. Switching that means no more wearing clothes and rolling in sheets that are filled with chemicals 24/7. These chemicals are transferred onto your skin and your children’s skin and absorbed into your body throughout the entire day 😖
.
Scan your products with the @thinkdirty app and see how they rate. Most of them will have chemicals that have been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, endocrine disruption, cancer and so much more. That’s scary enough for me to just avoid all together. #knowbetterdobetter #gimmealltheplants
  • People make fun of Valentine’s Day but I love it. We don’t exchange gifts but I love the reminder to love and acknowledge the one you are with. Happy Valentine’s Day my love! Celebrating it with a throwback to the days when phone pictures were terrible quality, we were much younger, thinner, tanner, less wrinkles and spent our money traveling the world. I love you so much and this beautiful life we’ve built together 🖤
  • Some days I honestly feel like I’m drowning in all the things. I need to say this to myself everyday. And repeat it all day long. 🖤
  • Because we are still in denial over the @saints not being in the Super Bowl today! We will get em next year 🏈🖤
  • I love the month of love 💗Diffusing all my favorite reds, pinks and purples all month long! This month my mantra is “Hustle and Heart will set you apart” because I feel some big things in the works 💜
  • I love you so much. 💕
