WHY DO I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

I’ve always been super into alternative and natural medicine (hence half the stuff on this site ; ) but after the birth of my daughter, I knew I wanted a safe form of natural medicine that I could confidently administer to her to deal with all the little growing pains that come with being a baby (teething, eczema, fussiness, runny noses, diaper rash, etc.)  By the same token, as a breastfeeding mom, I wanted a healing modality I could use for myself as well, and be sure that I wasn’t ingesting or applying anything that could harm my baby.  And thus my love affair with essential oils was born.

Essential oils are concentrated liquids that originate from the aromatic compounds of most herbs, flowers, trees, roots and seeds. They are in a sense the “essence,” or purest and most potent form of the plant from which they’re derived. They are an ancient form of natural medicine, with documented usage dating back as early as 3000 BC.  Cultures from ancient Egypt, Rome, China, and India all made regular use of essential oils for medicinal and aromatic purposes.

They’ve been used to slow the signs of aging, prevent the spread of diseases, heal pain, inflammation, and illness.  They’ve also been used ceremonially in religious and spiritual practices the world round.

I knew that alongside my love of homeopathics and herbs, essential oils were the next step in creating a healthy home medicinal practice for my self and my family.

WHICH OILS DO I USE AND WHY?

I spent a long time researching and trying out different essential oils.  I’ve used Doterra, NOW, Auracacia, and Mountain Rose, but ultimately I settled on Young Living oils.  All of these brands are great, and you should definitely try a few out for yourself to see which ones you like best.  I chose Young Living because I found their oils to be the most pure and well-sourced, which was important to me as I chose oils to put on my baby’s delicate skin.  Unlike most other oil companies, Young Living owns the farms their oils come from, farms that are in the natural climate and environment for that specific plant.  Their plants are harvested seasonally (which means, when they run out of an oil, they’re out until the next harvest, which is actually awesome — just like it’s super important to eat seasonally, I think it’s really cool to use oils from plants that are only grown and harvested in season), and they control the whole process, from seed to seal, as they call it.  I really like that about the company, and combined with the fact that their oils are 100% therapeutic grade and are safe to use internally as well as externally (as per the instructions for each specific oil), I felt the most comfortable with using these oils for myself and my family.

HOW TO GET STARTED…

The other thing I love about Young Living is the community support that they encourage and facilitate.  I literally knew nothing about essential oils when I got started. So when I signed up as a distributor, I was super excited to receive a ton of amazing resources from the community I joined.  From guides and recipes, to classes and detailed instruction, I felt like I had everything I needed to hit the ground running with essential oils.  If you’d like to join my community, I’d be so happy to have you!  When you sign up, you’ll get access to all the resources you need to get started using your oils, you’ll get access to our community Facebook page where you can get support with using your oils and share resources, and you’ll have access to me personally to help guide you on your essential oil journey.  We have some beautiful guides on using your oils for green home cleaning, beauty, baby, and so much more.  I reference them every day.Essential Oils Starter Kit | The Organic Beauty

To start with Young Living essential oils, you have two options to sign up:

Option #1: Wholesale Customer  |  Click here to sign up

  • Get wholesale prices at 24% off of retail
  • Get an awesome starter kit that gets you all the main oils you’ll use regularly and is the easiest way to start using oils right away
  • No renewal fee; simply purchase a minimum of $50pv of products per year and your account stays active
  • No order minimum – order whenever you like, as often as you like
  • Access to Essential Rewards, which is an automatic monthly shipment of products you use the most!
  • Although Young Living calls their wholesale customers “Distributors” this does NOT mean that you are signing up to sell oils and there is absolutely no pressure to do so – ever.
  • Member number to share with friends; if they order using your member number, you’ll receive compensation (but, again, enrolling as a “Distributor” does NOT mean that you have to share oils with anyone; although, once you discover how wonderful they are, it will be hard not to tell your friends!)

 

Option #2: Retail Customer  |  Click here to sign up

  • No starter kit required.
  • Order products whenever you would like (but pay 24% more than a wholesale customer).

I recommend the wholesale option, even if you’re not planning on sharing oils with your friends and family or incorporating them into your business.  The savings are huge (oils can get really pricey when you’re paying full price), and the starter kit is awesome.

To join my community, please make sure the number “3412204” is in both the “Sponsor ID” and “Enroller ID” fields.

 

If you’re signing up as a wholesale customer, I recommend the following:

  • Purchase the $150 Premium Starter Kit (pictured above with the Dewdrop Diffuser). This is hands down the best value for money when signing up and includes:
    • The Everyday Oils collection (these are your basics you’ll use all the time, and are the perfect way to start your family’s home medicine kit): Digize, Frankincense, Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint, Purification, Panaway, Copaiba, Thieves, and R.C. — {a $163 value} + BONUS Stress Away)
    • A Diffuser – It works as a cool air humidifier, atomizer, air purifier and also has an optional glow setting (perfect for use as a night light!). Choose from the home diffuser (has intermittent and regular settings, floral design), dew drop diffuser (diffuses for 4 hours, clean design), bamboo diffuser (beautiful, modern look) and the aria diffuser (luxe glass diffuser, LED light show, spa sounds/play your own music, three different timer settings, remote control).
    • You also get:
      • Welcome to Young Living booklet, Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide, Distributor Resource Guide, S.E.E.D. Sharing for Success booklet
      • AromaGlide Roller Fitment
      • A bunch of sample oil packets and bottles to share with your friends and family
      • Two NingXia Red 2-oz. samples
      • Distributor Agreement, Product Guide and Product Price List.

Purchasing all these products separately would cost over $300! So this is a great deal and gets you started off with everything you need.

  • Consider sighing up for Essential Rewards if you sign up as a wholesale member (ER is available exclusively to Young Living Independent Distributors only).
    • Essential rewards is a great way to ensure you have your favourite Young Living products on hand every month.
