Hi friends! I’m so excited to talk to you about our wellness journey. Wellness can mean different things to different people but here I’m talking about essential oils and why we ditched our toxic products for all natural ones. This story starts when I became a Mom. Motherhood opens your heart in ways you never knew existed and as the gatekeeper of my home, I knew that I needed to educate myself about what was going in and on our bodies, especially the kiddos! I was curious about oils but didn’t really get the hype and I was using products that I thought were safe, and were advertised as so. At the suggestion of a friend I downloaded an app called Think Dirty and looked those products up. I was shocked. Have you heard of Greenwashing? Google it! At this point I knew I had nothing to lose and I bought my premium starter kit.
After purchasing my starter kit I quickly learned that these oils could do WAY more than I had imagined. To put it simply, we LOVE them. We diffuse them every single day, roll them on our bodies and have slowly switched over to all of the plant-based personal care and household items as well! We now support our bodies with things like sleep, emotions, stress/anxiety, hormones, aches and pains, breathing easier, digestion, skin, overall wellness and so much more. It feels SO good to be doing it with 100% all-natural, chemical free products. Happy dance!
Now, don’t get me wrong, we are not perfect by any means. Hello, oreos. BUT, ditching out the toxic products in our home for safe and all-natural ones from Young Living was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made for our family. This was not something that happened overnight. We set a monthly budget for ourselves and stopped buying things like soap, shampoos, detergents, etc. from Target or the grocery store. We simply transferred those purchases over and when we ran out of our old products, we would swap them out one by one with the all-natural products from Young Living. They are essential oil infused, plant-based, and actually WORK! Say no more.
One of the best parts has been the community! We have such a great community of like-minded women and families who are all sharing and exploring these oils together. I’ve met so many amazing people and new friends through these oils and I’d love to get you linked up to our community.
To make it simple, here are some FAQ’s:
Why Young Living?
Young Living has a seed to seal promise — they own their own farms, so from the seeds they plant in the ground to the process of distillation to get the oils out of the plant, they control every aspect. They don’t use chemicals and each bottle is filled with 100% PURE therapeutic-grade oil. NO fillers, chemicals or fragrance are added, ever. And this goes for all of their products. They’re the leader in the essential oils movement and have been in business for 25 years. Done and done! For more information, read here.
When I sign up with Young Living do I have to do the business?
NOPE, not at all. You aren’t required to sell anything.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
NOPE, when you join YL and purchase your starter kit, you automatically become a wholesale member which means you save 24% on ALL future purchases. Easy peasy!
If you find yourself making purchases each month, you might want to sign up for Essential Rewards. Essential Rewards costs a minimum of $50/month. You can cancel at any time! Brian and I did the math on how much were we spending each month at Target or the grocery store on things like cleaners, hand soap, shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, dishwasher detergent, lotions, baby wipes, diaper creams, etc. Jumping on Essential Rewards was a no-brainer because we earn FREE oils and products with our purchases and were spending the minimum regardless on all of our household products. Woot woot!
How do I join Young Living?
I recommend starting with the premium starter kit (like I did). This will give you 12 of the most common oils and a diffuser plus a bunch of other goodies! The best part — the starter kit gives you about $400 worth of product for only $165!! From there you can always add more, but it’s the perfect way to jump in, start learning and begin to ditch and switch your products.
Make sure the number 13530079 appears in both the “Sponsor” and “Enroller ID” fields and choose wholesale member. Get ready for a welcome packet of goodies from me and to get plugged into our community. We will teach you ALL of the oily things!!
