Young Living Essential Oils.. what does that mean?
Yes, I have been thinking the same thing for years when people have mentioned them to me, a Doula friend of mine swears by them for her pregnant and nursing moms and the new babies but I’m done with all that (my baby is 25) so I didn’t really pay too much attention.
Then my good friend Barb started posting photos of clean and healthy + cute things for her friends and family on her Crafty Side of Essential Oils page…. well I’m all about healthy products without junk, you already know about my Daniel Plan detox…. and these were CUTE too so it was the natural next step to find out more about “Young Living Essential Oils.”
I wanted to make lip balm, and sugar scrub and bath salts and shower bomb DIY projects for my blog and make gifts for my friends and family and the most economical way to do that was to buy the kit. You get 10+ full size bottles of essential oils not just samples along with the diffuser (I didn’t even know what that was) but once I got the kit and set up the diffuser… My oh my! Both my hubby and I have a hard time getting to sleep and then staying asleep. Add to that he had just been injured with two cracked ribs so he couldn’t roll over on his side.. the only way he can sleep and not snore and with all the pain he wasn’t sleeping well either. After the very first night of YL essential oils in the diffuser, we both slept wonderfully well, better than we had in weeks.. maybe months. He snores VERY loudly so even if he’s sleeping soundly if he’s on his back I won’t be able to, but with the diffuser.. he doesn’t snore…

Why Young Living Oils?
I’ve bought oils at Walgreens and the craft store but I was only interested in the scents of them, there were some spammy people posting their links on my Facebook buy/sell page so looking into that brand didn’t excite me, PLUS their kit is a ton more expensive to get started. I wanted the good stuff but I didn’t want to have to be one of those obnoxious MLM people who are constantly inviting their friends over and bullying them into buying and selling a product. When you become a member of Young Living Essential Oils you are only required to buy $50 worth of oils a year to remain a member!! So there is ZERO PRESSURE to sell any ever. At Young Living, they are more interested in helping you and your family with these essential oils, not building a downline. If you want some of the technical stuff about Young Living Essential Oils and how they process the ingredients from “Seed to Seal” you can read here:
Not only does YLEO (Young Living Essential Oils) own farms in 2 states in the US (Utah & Idaho) and own land or have partnerships with farmers in 6 countries: France, Ecuador, Taiwan, Owan, Israel and then They bought land in a rainforest in Iquitos, Peru!
“After much investigation and interaction with government officials, Young Living has purchased more than 3,400 acres of wild Amazon rain forest, where we will be building a distillery, researching wild crafted and native plants, and distilling them to produce essential oils for Young Living.”
Why so many places? The US climate isn’t the best place to grown and capture many of the wonderful healing essential oils that have been being used for centuries.
