Why I use essential oils
I’ve always been health conscious, but I do have my vices like bread and sugar (not good ones, eeek). When I became pregnant with my first child I became quite consumed with eating as clean as possible and what I exposed myself to. As a person with OCD, there was true overwhelm from all the things they warn you about when pregnant. From how much caffeine is safe to consume to not breathing in certain fumes from cleaners.
Reading all of these warnings, I soon realized that there was A LOT of toxins in virtually everything I was using on a daily basis. I began to think “if this could adversely affect my unborn child inside my womb, what is it doing to my body everyday?!”, and thus ensued my great desire (and new OCD tick) to rid my body and home of the junk. I WAS GOING ORGANIC!
I began trading out items that I regularly used as they ran out. Through doing my research on what to replace my cleaners and such with, essential oils kept coming to the forefront. I wasn’t sure what exactly they were, and based on all the hoop-la I read about them, I started to think “seriously, they seem like a hoax”. Despite my criticism, I bought some from a company that I saw others using. They didn’t cost much and their website seemed well enough with good explanations. Once I received them, I thought they smelled awful and noticed no affect from using them.
I drew the conclusion that my assumption was correct, and they were hoakie.
Fast forward almost a year, a blogger I had followed for a while and trusted started talking about essential oils, and specifically Young Living Essential Oils. I became intrigued once again, because learning the difference in quality made sense to me.
I ordered the Premium Starter Kit (THE BEST WAY TO GET STARTED, imo), and never looked back. I used Stress Away first, and noticed an immediate effect.
I WAS HOOKED!
So why Young Living oils?
Essential oils are not federally regulated, therefore, companies can put any filler or additive into what they call an “essential oil.” In fact, the one regulation for the essential oil industry states that to label an oil “therapeutic grade” there must only be 5% essential oil in the mix. FIVE PERCENT!!! Most of what you find at the grocery stores or online stores have toxic fillers in them. It can be dangerous to use these types of oils and can actually bring more harm and can make conditions worse.
Young Living Essential Oils are 100% therapeutic grade, which means the entire bottle is the actual essential oil. Within 20 minutes of applying oils, they can be found in every cell in your body! These pure oils are distilled from the “lifeblood” of plants and contain the plant’s own immunity, hormones, and scents.
Young Living has rigorous testing and standards for their oils. No fillers are ever added to Young Living’s oils and no toxins are present. In fact, they only use virgin lands to harvest their oils to further ensure no pesticides or herbicides affect their crops. Anything that comes from a farm outside of Young Living’s farms must meet these strict standards as well. You can read about their Seed to Seal promise here.
