Getting Started with Essential Oils

Getting Started with Essential Oils

What is an essential oil?  Essential oils are plant extracts that are harvested and distilled that have the power to change lives for the better.  You can improve your families physical wellness, purify your home and uplift your spirits,  all from a tiny drop of oil.

Gary Young, the founder of Young Living Essential Oils, wanted the best life possible for himself and his family.  His passion led him to essential oils.  With Gary and the help of modern science he was able to find a healthier, and a more purpose filled life through essential oils.  You can read more about Gary Young and his story here.

Young Living proudly sets the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity.  They take pride in carefully monitoring the production of their oils through a unique Seed to Seal process. From the time the seed is harvested until the oil is sealed in the bottle, YL applies rigorous quality controls to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended.  To learn more about YL’s seed to seal process, visit them here.

My Story

I was introduced to essential oils a few years ago when I attended a home gathering at a friends house.  I was curious about this product and had no idea what I was getting myself into.  She had a diffuser going with essential oils in it that made her whole house smell wonderful!  I wanted that!  Then I learned how toxic the things that I was using in my house everyday were and how they could really hurt us, not help us…including those smelly things that you burn or plug in!

I started to read further into essential oils and I bought my first bottle of lavender essential oil.  That was my first and only purchase.  I had no idea how to use it.  My friend told me to dab some on a cotton ball and place beside my bed to help me sleep at night, or in my car to freshen up, or put it in my drawers to add a fresh scent.  The problem with that was it only lasted a short time and I wanted it to smell longer than that, and, I wanted my whole house to smell good.  I just had to have one of those diffuser things!  My friend had me over again (1:1) and we went through the whole speal on how essential oils can help you and your health and well being.  I was sold, right then and there.  I bought the starter kit and the rest, so they say, was history.

I have not tried to build my business of essential oils until now.  I want everyone to know how these little bottles of joy can really make a difference in your life.  I am a believer!
