My Choice of Essential Oils
There was a time not long ago when essential oils were unheard of. Nowadays, there are essential oil companies popping up everywhere and you can now buy them almost anywhere. I can tell you that 2 years ago, that was not the case. I started using essential oils 10 years ago, so I consider myself to be very experienced. It was only a matter of my dear friend introducing me to a wonderful company called Young Living. When it comes to the health of myself and my family, I want only the best. I will even pay more for it. Would I buy non-organic strawberries for $1 less knowing they contain the most pesticides, or will I pay that $1 more for organic strawberries to protect my family from harmful chemicals? You guessed it, I will always choose the organic ones for just a buck more. This is how it goes for me regarding anything that may contain chemicals. Plastic or glass? Glass. Artificial or natural dyes? Natural ones. I think you get my point, right? I like having natural alternatives to everything.
Why do I love Young Living essential oils?
I like knowing where my oils come from, where the farm is, how the seeds are grown and how the oils are processed from start to finish. I’d like to know if pesticides were used or if they are distilled using chemicals (because I don’t want that). In my search for the perfect essential oils, I couldn’t look passed Young Living. I was amazed to find they have also been around for 20+ years! They have the experience and research to prove their loyalty and commitment to 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. I was shocked to discover that they are the ONLY essential oil company with their own farms offering a seed to seal guarantee. They own over 50 farms across the world! Young Living farms are ORGANIC and the weeds are hand-picked! They do not use pesticides or chemicals during any part of the production of their essential oils. Check out the website www.seedtoseal.com to learn more about their amazing production process. This won me over since day 1!
Not only that, but I have been amazed by how heathy I have become since using Young Living oils. Lavender, oh lavender, I have never slept better in my life. The Progessence Plus oil? I use it daily for hormonal support! Gentle Baby oil? My favorite for calming myself, my toddler and infant. And the infamous Thieves blend is quite powerful for immune support. I can’t live without Thieves in a household of 2 little ones who are around a lot of germs. My husband cannot function without his PanAway blend to soothe his muscles after his workouts. The list goes on and on for me!
How Can You Get These Oils?
You can’t find Young Living products in a store. They are a referral-based company committed to helping their members better the health of themselves and their families and allowing their members to share their experiences with others. They also provide wonderful rewards and business opportunities to its members.
There are 1 of 2 ways you can purchase Young Living essential oils and other products:
- Become a RETAIL CUSTOMER. This is pretty straight forward. Retail customers can purchase products at retail price. Keep in mind, you won’t be able to get the premium starter kit for $160 (which retails for over $300). You can become a retail customer by clicking HERE.
- Become a WHOLESALE MEMBER with one of the starter kits (I highly recommend the Premium Starter Kit for $160). Wholesale members get wholesale prices, which is 24% off retail. As a wholesale member, there is NO obligation to sell and no annual fees like most wholesale memberships (Costco, Sams Club, etc). Some people only sign up for the wholesale prices with no intention to sell. However, you will find that sometimes the products sell themselves! Wholesale members are already set up to earn an income. This income can cover the cost of the products you buy or it can become a part or full time business. The only requirement to maintain an active wholesale membership is to spend 50PV/year (PV stands for personal volume. Personal volume is usually dollar for dollar so this equates to $50 a year). You already achieve this when you buy the Premium Starter Kit, so you would be set for the year! Over 90% of Young Living members start with the Premium Starter Kit. This amazing kit includes 11 5 ml bottles of essential oils (Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, Copaiba, PanAway, Thieves, Purification, DiGize, R.C. and Stress Away), an all-in-one home diffuser, a roller ball fitment (to turn any bottle into a roll-on), two 2 ounce packets of NingXia Red (a powerful antioxidant drink), 10 essential oil samples, 10 sample bottles so you can share with your friends and so much more! You can learn more about the membership in detail HERE or:
1. Choose your membership: Select “Member” so you can purchase the Premium Starter Kit and start getting 24% off! Select your country and language. Next, I would greatly appreciate if you use my member number (2524457) under the referral section if it isn’t there already. This gives me credit for helping you get started and allows me to be there for you as your sponsor.
2. Fill out your name, address, and contact information.
3. Create your username, password and PIN. You will use them to log into your Young Living account and place any future orders. Note – Your username and password must meet the requirements. Sometimes people get stuck here when they pick a username already taken or are missing a requirement for their password and have trouble continuing to create their account.
4. Select your starter kit: I highly recommend the Premium Starter Kit because it is the best value and includes everything you need to get started! You also have 4 diffuser options to choose from: the Home Diffuser, the Dew Drop Diffuser, the Rainstone Diffuser (a $45 upgrade) or the Aria Diffuser (a $100 upgrade).
5. Optional: Sign up for the frequent buyers’ program called Essential Rewards (ER). When you join, you’ll start accumulating rewards points for everything you buy, which can be used to get free products on future orders. There’s no need to join right away – you can purchase your starter kit first and join ER at a later time if you want.
6. Agree to the Terms & Conditions.
