Essential Oils // The why and the how

Why Essential Oils?

My husband and I are firm believers in using non-toxic products in our home. It’s been a long journey, but it’s something we truly believe in.

I started to be very curious about oils when I decided to eliminate candles from our home. I know. They smell so gooood, but they had to go. After reading multiple studies showing candles release toxins into the air,  I was done. As a migraine sufferer, I knew the heavy scents weren’t helping my situation.

I didn’t jump on the oil bandwagon right away because I was a little intimidated. It wasn’t until essential oils FINALLY helped my son sleep that I was ready to do this oily thing.

My friend had been sharing all about her love for oils and how EASY they are to use. I was sold. Let me tell you, it was the best $160 I’ve ever spent. I got 11 oils, a diffuser, and access to the most amazing community. Having a group of like-minded people to share the journey with was a total GAME CHANGER.

Since purchasing my Premium Starter Kit, I have replaced many household items and personal care products with essential oils. My love for oils and their benefits has since grown into a strong desire to share these benefits with others. I want my friends, family, and everyone to know that they do not have to live with the toxins that are found in many products we use every day. For more about choosing a non-toxic lifestyle for your family, see my post here.

How I use Essential Oils

Let me count the ways…I started using essential oils for our bedtime routine. My favorite essential oil blends for bed are lavender and cedarwood, frankincense and lavender, Gentle Baby and Lavender, and Peace and Calming and tangerine. I also have a lavender and cedarwood roller that I rub on the bottom of my feet. It didn’t take long until the whole house was sleeping better.

Next, I moved on to my beauty routine. I love copaiba under my eyes (bye-bye bags), frankincense on my face, and cedarwood in my hair. Before I knew it, my husband was using oils to make chapstick, lotions, and hair products. If you’re not into DIY projects, no worries. Young Living offers everything from supplements to toothpaste. They got your back!

Now, I use oils for everything. Yes. I mean EVERYTHING. Immune support, seasonal support (pollen is not my friend), tension, emotional support, cleaning, you name it. It’s crazy how these little bottles have changed our lives!

If you’ve tried oils before and didn’t get the results you wanted or were irritated by the product, you may have been using a 100% synthetic product, a product with synthetics added, or a product that was not distilled correctly. This is exactly why we avoid other essential oil brands. We trust Young Living 100%! Find out about Young Living’s Seed to SealĀ® promise here.
