Why I use essential oils
I was super reluctant when I first got introduced to essential oils… it took me a year and a half of using them before I was like ok, I’M ALL IN!!! My journey with oils first started right after Jeremy and I moved from LA to Bend, Oregon. At the time, Jeremy and I were doing a lot of traveling + training for a half marathon together. We couldn’t afford to get sick, and a friend of mine introduced me to Thieves!!! I would diffuse a few drops at night when we traveled I would rub it on our wrists and chest for immune support, and whenever we thought we might be getting sick, I’d put a drop of Thieves Vitality under our tounges – potent but effective! No sickies for us all fall/winter! Around this time I started taking barre3 classes and fell in love so fast that I became a barre3 instructor! If you’ve ever taken a barre3 class, you know how sore it can sometimes make you the next morning;) I started using Panaway and Deep Relief for my sore muscles and recovery.
In January, Jeremy and I found out that we were pregnant with our first baby!!! This was around the same time I was really starting to do my research on oils and became more and more interested in all the other non-toxic products that Young Living has to offer (skin care, cleaning supplies etc.) Finding out that I was pregnant put me into overdrive with researching what I was putting in and on my body… which kept bringing me back to oils:)
Oils have been a total game changer for me throughout this pregnancy! I am beyond thankful that I discovered them before my pregnancy, labor, and becoming a new mom! So far have helped me with a variety of pregnancy symptoms: skin issues, nausea, energy, sore muscles, sleep, blood sugar, hormones, sickness prevention, and trusting what’s in my skincare and cleaning products!

“Can’t I just buy Essential Oils from a grocery or drug store?”
Essential oils are not regulated therefore companies can put any filler or additive into what they call an “essential oil.” Most of what you will find at the grocery store is either another ingredient altogether or has toxic fillers in it.
When you are using essential oils on your body for any reason related to health or skin care, it is very dangerous to use these types of oils and can actually bring more harm. You can have reactions to these types of oils and they can make conditions worse.
Young Living essential oils are 100% therapeutic grade. 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. When you pick a rose and break off the stem, you’ll always notice there is a bit of watery substance. This is the source that the pure essential oil comes from. And this God-given source was intelligently created to benefit our whole body!!!
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 don’t even use pesticides or herbicides on their crops or soil so that toxins won’t be present. Anything that comes from a farm outside of Young Living’s farms must meet these strict standards as well. You actually can visit the Young Living farms anytime you want and see their methods of growth and testing. That’s how open they are about their purity. You can also see YL’s seed to seal promise on their website. “Seed to Seal” is not a slogan, it’s who Young Living is!
