Four Reasons to Choose Young Living

When I first was introduced to essential oils, not many people knew very much about them. To me it was an extension of knowledge I had accumulated over many years, because I loved gardening and had studied herbs already for many years before hearing about essential oils.

I found that knowledge and experience easily transferred to the products I was now learning about. I also knew that quality really matters. So I was happy to learn how important purity and integrity was to Young Living. Here are four reasons why I believe choosing Young Living Essential oils as a supplier is so important.

  1. Quality: Each bottle of Young Living essential oil contains pure distilled essential oil. This means a full application is only 1 to 2 drops. Feel the difference high quality makes as you breathe, rub on, or ingest these high-quality oils.
  2. Passion: The secret to Young Living’s purity and quality is found on their farms where they cultivate and harvest completely organic botanicals. Young Living has a team that personally travels worldwide to scout farms that offer ideal conditions for growing premium botanicals free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. All of their plants are hand-weeded and have been validated by experts through scientific research, field study, university partnerships, and on-site planting certification. Their professional organization, called the Young Living Essential Oils Scientific Advisory Council, consists of prominent scientists from around the world who passionately provide innovative insight and expertise into the development of essential oils and essential oil infused products. This is redefining the way the world thinks about wellness.
  3. Experience: Since it was founded over two decades ago, Young Living’s exponential growth stands as a testament to their quality, purity, community and passion. Young Living has been the world leader in essential oils for over 20 years. Setting international standards with an unwavering dedication to authenticity, they operate their own farms, distilleries, labs and warehouses.
  4. Guarantee: The Seed to Seal process is carefully completed by sealing and inspecting every bottle of essential oil at a state-of-the-art facility where they ship out to Young Living members worldwide. Every Young Living oil is marked with the batch number to provide an extra layer of safety, accountability, and professionalism.

Young Living has earned the respect and loyalty of millions of people across the globe for having products that are powerful, effective, and versatile.

Diffuser, Essential Oils, Healthy Lifestyle

What diffuser is best?

Do you enjoy a fresh scent in your home. One way to improve the atmosphere in your home is to diffuse essential oils. But how do you know what diffuser is best for your home? Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. But there are two types that I recommend: Ultrasonic and Atomizing.

An atomizing diffuser functions as an aroma diffuser, air purifier, and atomizer in one simple-to-use product. Its atomizing technology transforms essential oils into a vapor of millions of microparticles, dispersing them into the air and releasing the powerful plant constituents found in Young Living essential oils. They are convenient to use because you simply screw the essential oil bottle directly onto the atomizer. No water is needed.

An ultrasonic diffuser functions as a humidifier, atomizer, and aroma diffuser. Ultrasonic frequency technology breaks down essential oils and water into millions of microparticles, dispersing them into the air, and releasing the oils’ unique constituents. Water is needed, but only a few drops of oil are used.

In both cases, diffusers help you enjoy a positive aromatic experience.

I do not recommend any diffuser that heats or burns the essential oils, since that will change the properties of the essential oils you are diffusing and you will not experience the same benefits that atomizing or ultrasonic diffusers provide.

Young Living offers many choices in diffusers. My personal favorites are the AromaLux and the Desert Mist diffuser. There are two other diffusers that are also very popular and are offered as choices in the Premium Starter Kit. Those are the Dewdrop Diffuser and the Home Diffuser. All these are simple to operate and have proven reliability.

No matter what Young Living diffuser you select, you can’t go wrong! If you would like a one-page document with tips on using and cleaning an ultrasonic diffuser, please send your request to Joyce@ShareScents.com and mention you would like the tips on using ultrasonic diffusers.

Effective Aromatherapy

Everyone has their favorite way to experience aromatherapy. Some people like to diffuse essential oils so the entire room is filled with the fragrant aromas. Others prefer to apply the oils topically so they are surrounded with pleasing scents. Others like to just open the bottle and sniff, or put a drop in their hands and smell their hands. But did you know the scent actually changes if you start with your hands further away from your nose and slowly raise them to your face as you breathe in? Try it, you may be surprised! Dolf Cheng give some excellent instructions in this illustration.

Back to School Dental Check-ups

Dental Checkup anxiety

As summer begins to wind down, many families begin preparations for their children to go back to school. Often this routine includes a dental check-up. Many children have a certain amount of anxiety associated with going to see the dentist.

Recently I read a short article in the April 2014 issue of Natural Awakenings Magazine (page 10) describing a study where aromatherapy was used to test whether it could help reduce anxiety associated with visits to the dental office. The study revealed that children receiving orange oil aromatherapy experienced significantly reduced heart rates, and lower salivary cortisol levels compared to those who did not receive the aromatherapy. The findings corroborated findings from a 2000 study done in Austria.

A couple of thoughts came to mind. Young Living carries orange essential oil and it is very inexpensive. Orange oil is also one of the ingredients in the Peace & Calming blend. You may want to check out these options for your child’s (or yours, for that matter!) next dental visit!

Visting Young Living Farms

Seed to Seal Plant Graphic YL SS

About a month ago I visited the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona Utah. It was actually my fourth visit to this farm. But this visit was special. I had the opportunity to plant lavender in the field as part of a special tour in which we got to experience the Seed to Seal process that makes Young Living Essential Oils unique.

Extreme attention to detail and quality guarantees that every bottle of oil delivered to your door is pure and potent and will be exactly what it says it is. Nothing added and nothing taken away. Seeing the entire process really gives an appreciation for what goes into the highest quality essential oils I have learned to trust.

During the tour, I took time to record several short video clips showing each step of the seed to seal process. Click here to check out these videos on my YouTube Channel. I think you will also be impressed.

Health at what price?

Recently my colleague Dr. LeAnne Deardeuff mentioned how much she loves Frankincense and what it has done to improve her life and health. She mentioned how frankincense helped her get rid of headaches. She also said, “I vita-flexed it on my pituitary points on my feet and head. I rubbed it in the roof of my mouth.  I began to learn that it focused my fuzzy brain and made me more alert and able to work better. Energy was soon restored. I felt that I might just have some “brilliancy” in that head of mine. Health was being restored.”

She even says she mixed a few drops in fresh raw cream and drank it — the emulsified fat quickly delivered the precious essential oil to every cell of her body. What a great idea!

For me, when I was having great difficulty with asthma and chronic bronchitis, inhaling Frankincense immediately eased the spasms in my lungs. In fact, the first time I did that, my lungs sent a message to my brain that said, “THANK YOU!”

Authentic, pure, therapeutic grade Frankincense doesn’t come cheap. It is easy to feel like it is too expensive to use.  But let me toss out another thought from Dr. LeAnne: “Now with the type of healing I am doing with Frankincense it isn’t expensive to me any more. It is vital. My health is worth so much more then letting that precious oil sit on the shelf being seen but not touched. It is meant to be used.”

I couldn’t say it better. What is your health worth to you?

Exquisite perfumes

Have you ever walked past those stores that sell scented products and perfumes and sneezed afterward? Or worse yet, got a headache or had trouble breathing because of an asthma attack?

One time a friend was in one of those stores and was admiring a certain product. The clerk came over to help her and was having a conversation with her. When she learned my friend was with Young Living Essential Oils, she said, “You don’t want any of these products. You won’t be happy with them.” Wow, that surely said a lot, don’t you think?

I love wearing different Young Living blends as perfume. They are natural, safe and life giving! Even my friends who are extremely sensitive to scents don’t have a problem with my “perfumes” because they do not contain any toxins or artificial chemicals.

Here are some favorites of my friends and me to use as perfumes:

 

Julie says, Jasmine and Clove together is sweet and spicy all at the same time just like many of us women! 🙂 It is sooooooo intoxicating. After putting one drop of each on in your palm and lightly and gently rub the two together and then put it on. it will last for a good 4-5 hours. and you will get LOTS of compliments!!!! Enjoy, its so so yummy and the men love it on us!!

 

 

 

Nancy enjoys wearing Stress Away and Humility as perfumes.

Peggy says Joy oil is one of her favorites. She says, “Not only does it make me feel good but also the people in your space. My niece told me that she was in line at Costco and the gal behind her said to her friend “I can’t figure out why I keep smiling!” Of course it was the oil. It also keeps the grand kids [and husbands] from being grumpy. 

Abundance seems to attract positive reactions from people and draw them to you.

Sensation is great for creating a romantic atmosphere.

   

Some people like White Angelica because it protects you from the negative energy around you. Harmony, and Valor are also wonderful scents to wear as perfumes.

My suggestion is to have fun with them!  Find your own favorites and let me know that you like the best!
