Why I Chose Young Living

Not all companies are the same and neither are their oils. Choosing the right company is key, and I wanted to share why I chose Young Living when I started learning more about essential oils.

Young Living is the only essential oil company to own or partner with their farms, willing to live up to their standards for growing, harvesting, and distilling.

Most oils sold on the market are aroma or fragrance grade oils, only suitable for cosmetics and perfumes (and let’s be honest, a lot of their ingredients aren’t great for us anyway). They may smell good, but they don’t offer the same therapeutic and medicinal benefits. These oils may have an oil base, but still contain additives, fillers, and synthetics to increase volume or fragrance.

Young Living oils are 100% pure, and if stored away from heat and sunlight last longer or indefinitely.

Young Living’s Vitality line is compliant with the FDA and can be used as dietary supplements.

Young Living has been the leading essential oils pioneers since 1993, with the greatest selection of single and oil blends. If an oil doesn’t pass their strict quality standards, it’s not sold and won’t be offered until they produce more.

Young Living is the only company with a Seed to Seal process, and the only company with a Lacy Act Compliance Program:

You can visit their farms all over the world and participate in the harvest and distillation process!!

Young Living meets standards and analysis of their oils, which determines if the oil is naturally sourced or synthetic (created in a lab).

I chose to start using Young Living because people I know and trust use and recommend them. They were knowledgeable, did their research, and each came to the decision to use this company over others. I choose to continue using them, even after doing my own research, because they simply work. I choose Young Living products, like Thieves cleaner, to support, boost, and maintain my family’s wellness, avoiding toxins. I recommend Young Living because of these reason, and more—like having a huge supportive community of knowledgeable leaders, who care about my wellness and growth of my oily business.

DIY Foaming Facewash 

I have to share this because it’s too good not to: I made my own foaming facewash/soap with camomile tea and essential oils. It’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever made 🍵😁 It’s kind of the same way I make my baby body wash. 

What you need is Castile Soap, brewed tea of preference or distilled water, fractionated coconut oil or olive oil or almond oil—really any carrier oil you want, and 10-20 drops of essential oils—depending on how big your foaming dispenser is. Add honey if you want. I used Lavender and Frankincense because it makes me feel awesome in the morning and at night. I never use an exact measuring system. But, I fill the dispenser up 1/4 of the way with Castile Soap, add a 1/2-1 tsp of carrier oil, drops of essential oil, and fill the rest up with the tea/water, leaving space for the pump. I shake it each time I use it. 
If you make baby wash, I normally put half that amount of essential oils in it. But my skin is super sensitive, so for me, this amount is fine. Both are soothing and great for skin care! 
For a toner, you can use witch hazel or apple cider vinegar, and essential oils. I like peppermint and grapefruit because it’s an awesome “wake up” combo for in the morning. 
Hope you love it! 🌱🍵

My Dream Job

Reasons why Young Living is the dream job I never knew I wanted:

•I’m a blessed stay-at-home mom, who wants to and can provide for my family in a company I trust, with products that bring wellness to our lives.

•I can share my love for Young Living with my friends and family, helping them maintain wellness too, as well as help them make money to reach their own goals and dreams.

•I can manage my business on my own time, when I want, where I want. It’s super convenient and works on whatever I schedule I choose. I’m my own boss, which is a big deal when I have a toddler running around and a second baby on the way, as well as my side-job of Freelance Editing.

•The cost to start my business was $160, and I wasn’t intentionally looking to start the business when I signed up as a member of Young living. I ordered my oils for myself while pregnant with Oliver, using them for a year before I ever shared with anyone my passion for them. So, by just signing up for my kit, for my own wellness, I had a business at my fingertips if/when I was ready to take that next step.

•I trust the team I’m apart of, who are strong, supportive, encouraging, and knowledgeable. This is huge to me. After working with companies who have failed me, who have failed their customers or who just don’t care, it’s a blessing to be apart of a supportive community, who DO care about my growth, my health, my family, my dreams and my goals. I have so many complaints about managers I’ve worked for in the past. I could make a list of reasons why their teams fell apart, why I and others hard workers quit! But with this team, I never feel pressured, I never feel like I’m being trampled on, I never feel like I’m working my butt off or going above and beyond for no reason. My team, the women who are in my upline and those who are apart of this journey with me, are UPLIFTING, appreciative, empathetic, and caring. They give me the tools I need to help myself and others.

•I am knowledgeable and confident, even while still learning myself, to create a close knit, private community of my own, in which I provide leadership and support for others, who want to know more or who are building their own business.

•I’m able to have fun while creating this community ^^ by utilizing my creativity and skills. I love making my own websites, groups, organizing events, and creating sharable information and graphics.

•To support my goals and dreams. To be able to say yes when there are things we want, not just what we desperately need as a family. To help others, especially family, who are in need. To maintain our financial standing and go beyond it. Right now, as I type this, we are in the process of buying a new house & we will be buying furniture. Moving is a huge transition itself and a few months afterward we will be welcoming a new baby into our home. With all our expenses, especially in this stressful, exciting time, maintaining financial standing is the number one goal. But, I don’t just want to maintain, I want to go beyond it; be able to buy the extra things that I need for my hobbies, like soap molds, books and writing tools, resources to share with others, things I use to make my homemade products, things I want or need for myself that I sacrifice for Oliver’s needs (because let’s be honest, it’s hard to go out and want to buy something for yourself, but then see something your child needs and wants too and not have the money for both).

•Young Living believes and strives to be the hands and feet of the Lord through missions and service, and they include all of us in that.

•My child gets excited about using oils! Oliver loves making homemade products with me, using lotions and rollers. I can’t wait for him to be able to use them and share them with others on his own, knowing early on they work!

•I get EXCITED when my friends or family begin their oily journey with me! Not just because they have the opportunity to grow, not just because it means I’m growing my own business, but because they care about the products they are using and care about supporting their family’s wellness too! Because I trust in this company and the products we use, I can be excited when others choose Young Living too!
