How I Started with Essential Oils

 So I kind of stumbled into essential oils in early May when I found myself completely exhausted after dealing with months of constant sickness in our household. Really, for almost six months were continously battling rounds of colds, fevers, coughs, etc. I finally came to a point where I was ready to do something about it and make our family’s health my #1 priority. In addition to cleaning up our diet and cutting way back on sugar and processed food, I decided to give essential oils a try. So I did some research and ordered a starter kit from Young Living. As soon as that box of goodness arrived on my doorstep I was hooked and I completely fell in love with it all. I started using oils to support our family’s immune system, our emotional health, energy, focus, sleep, and SO much more. There is literally an oil to help with EVERYTHING.

Creating a Toxic Free Home

Quickly after I started with oils I began learning about the terrible chemicals and toxins that are in so many of the household products I was using around our home. I learned how those chemicals can wreck havoc on our bodies–even causing issues with our hormones and how our bodies and minds function. And even worse the longterm use of these chemicals is linked to terminal illness and cancer. So in addition to using essential oils, I started making the switch to safe, non-toxic and plant based products from Young Living. I even started using the Young Living makeup and I LOVE it!

Why Young Living?

I decided to go with Young Living over other popular oil companies because all the research I did kept pointing me back to their crazy high quality standards. They have all their own farms and they even personally distill their own oils. Their oils are beyond organic and even the soil they grow the plants in has never been treated with pesticides or chemicals. I LOVE that. And it means you’re using an oil with just ONE ingredient, like Lavender, Frankincense, or Lemon. There are no fillers, no additives and no chemicals whatsoever. Many oils that are cheaper or “more affordable” are full of pesticides and toxins that start from the very beginning, but Young Living doesn’t do that.

How to Get Started

The most affordable way to get started with Young Living is by purchasing any starter kit and enrolling as a member. The benefit of being a member is that you get a 24% discount on products forever and always. I personally chose the Premium Starter Kit and I LOVE it. It comes with 11 of the most commonly used oils–including Stress Away, which is one of my FAVORITES, your choice of diffuser and lots of samples including the Thieves household cleaner, which is amazing. This really is the best bang for your buck (it’s the only thing on the Young Living website that is HALF OFF!) and it saves you a lot of money compared to buying each thing individually. You can also order as a retail customer, but you won’t get the 24% discounted pricing.

How to Order:

  1. Click here and enroll as a MEMBER when you choose your Starter Kit. In order to be on my team make sure my sponsor ID number 15362329 appears in the “Enroller” and “Sponsor” fields. {And just to clarify, being a member does NOT mean you have to sell, it just gives you the discounted prices!}
  2. Decide if you’d like to enroll in the monthly rewards program known as Essential Rewards. This is an automatic shipment program that you can completely customize to include anything you want from Young Living delivered to your door each month. You can choose from the Thieves cleaning products, makeup, baby products, vitamins, oils and so much more. You definitely don’t have to enroll in the monthly program, but I highly recommend it because you can earn free oils, points back, reduced shippings cots, and other perks too.
  3. After you enroll I’ll send you a welcome email to fill you in on everything you need to get started with your oils!

The community is key!

Another reason I chose Young Living is because I was able to join an amazing team of women and families that are all on this same journey.  In particular I joined with several bloggers I’ve loved for a long time now and trust. I’ve watched them all RAVE about how these old were impacting their lives which made me feel confident in making this step. I’m so grateful that I found such an amazing team that is so sweet and helpful.And to be honest, I’ve learned that having the support of a great team like that makes all the difference when it comes to getting started with oils. And it definitely makes it so much more fun too! Once you join my team as a member, you are welcomed into that tribe as well. You’ll get full access to our support groups that will teach you how to use your oils, free classes, business mentorship (if you ever choose to go that route!) and so much more. Our team is AMAZING.

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .
.
The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
