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.

My personal care favorites

In the past few articles we have discussed some things to consider when caring for our skin. We talked about things like chemicals that can derail us in our health and beauty journey. We also looked at some essential oils that many women have found helpful to add a glow to their face.

If you think about it, Queen Esther soaked in Myrrh for six months and then other spices and oils were added to the regimen for another six months! REALLY? Yes, really! And the result was, she won the most famous beauty contest of all time!

Now I must admit that for many years I have been on a wellness journey that demanded I focus on internal health. So dedicating dollars to beautify my face and skin was a lower priority… Just being real here.

But ladies, there is nothing wrong with giving some attention to caring for our skin. After all, it is your body’s first line of defense. It is your largest organ and is as much as 15% or more of your total body weight.

Caring for your skin is important. So why not use the very best products available? Here is a very short list of my some of my favorite skin care products from Young Living Essential Oils. They are highly concentrated and therefore, very economical over the long road.  These are only a handful of the many awesome products available. You can visit my website and read my Women’s Personal Care newsletter to learn more, but this is a great place to start:

  • ART® Skin Care System (cleanser, moisturizer and toner)
  • ART® Renewal Serum
  • Sheerlumé™ Brightening Cream
  • Genesis Hand & Body Lotion
  • Rose Ointment
  • L Brianté™ Lip Gloss

Beauty beneath the surface

Every woman wants to look good. NO. Every woman wants to look AMAZING!

We pour money into products to cover up our flaws and accent our best qualities. We long to gaze in the mirror and have it answer back that we are the fairest of them all. Well, let me share a couple of secrets with you.

First, beauty is not skin deep. It starts inside our bodies. What we put IN our bodies will ultimately determine the glow on our skin. I always tell people that if you are having challenges on the surface of your skin, you should probably take a look under the hood. Talk to your healthcare professional about what might be the root cause of your problems. Keep feeding your body healthy food. Get moving (exercise, UGH!). Clean up your environment. And eliminate as many harmful ingredients from your personal care regimen as possible.

THEN you are ready to add healthy options for skin care. My Women’s Personal Care newsletter has some great suggestions to consider, so get a copy and see where you might be able to augment your beauty care stash!

Would you love to have glowing skin? Well, check out this list of some amazing essential oils that are simple to use and produce amazing results. Here is the trick. You are going to want to identify what type of skin you have. Then, pick a few essential oils that address your particular needs. Next combine just one drop of two or three of the oils you selected with an organic oil like jojoba or coconut oil (say 50/50) and gently massage them onto your face each night at bedtime. You will be amazed at the results.

So here is a very short list (There is a longer list in the newsletter):

  • Lavender (cleanse)
  • Geranium (hydrate)
  • Frankincense (smooth fine lines)
  • Sandalwood (balance)
  • Myrrh (just plain good!)

Looking beyond the label

Everyone knows that the things we put in and on our bodies have an impact on our health. The problem is, often we are clueless to know what we are consuming. If we resort to reading labels, we can quickly become discouraged by the big words we see in little very tiny print! I mean really… Like what exactly is Benzalkonium Chloride anyway? And does it even matter? And why is it such tiny print?

I have actually looked up some of these big words and it really depressed me. I found out that a lot of the common ingredients in personal care products could be causing all sorts of problems in my body. Cancer. Weight gain. Mood swings. Headaches. Digestive issues. Rashes, and more. But it seemed like certain ones that are proven to be harmful are in pretty much all these types of products.

And to add insult to injury, then I found out that because of “trade secrets” not all ingredients even have to be listed on the labels, or they can use vague terms like “fragrance” to hide the truth from you of what is in there.

So how do I know what really is in the bottle I am buying? There are a lot of lists out there of ingredients to avoid in our home and personal care products. I have included a partial list (along with some of the challenges these ingredients bring to our bodies) in my Women’s Personal Care newsletter, so just get your mitts on a copy and you will be amazed!

But I digress. This rude awakening about ingredients that could be creating problems in my body led me on a search for companies that provide “full disclosure” and that hold to the highest ethical standards and integrity.

I continually update my list of companies that I trust, but one company continues to hold the top position on my list. That is Young Living Essential Oils. I have been using their products for 18 years now and I just feel better and better all the time! Not only does Young Living offer essential oils, but their extensive product line includes powerful supplements, nutrition and food items, home and personal care products and more. It’s like one-stop shopping I can trust and quite economical in the long run. And trust me, I’m in this for a long run!

I challenge you to check out my newsletter and website and see what I discovered long ago. Then let’s have a conversation.

Eliminating toxic chemicals from your lifestyle

Do you ever wonder why it seems that cancer and other diseases are on the rise?  I have spent a great deal of time studying the connection between declining health and the chemical soup we subject ourselves to on a daily basis. It would be impossible to sum up what I have learned in just a few words, but I surely would encourage you to take a look at what chemicals may be adding to your personal toxic load. You might like to start here:

  • Air fresheners & candles
  • Shampoos and soaps
  • Lotions and other personal care items
  • Antiperspirants and toothpaste
  • Cleaning & laundry supplies

This is just a short list, but if you started reading the labels on all these items, and did a little research, I believe you would be shocked — maybe enough to make some changes.

The problem is where do you start? My recommendation is one bottle at a time! Start doing what I call bottle swapping. When a product you currently use is running low, replace it with a healthy alternative. That is what I did. It took a while, but it really did pay off.

Bottle Swapping

How do you know what is a good replacement? Who can you trust? For me the solution is to know your source. Know the company you are dealing with and the integrity of its products.

The company I have grown to trust over the years is Young Living Essential Oils. Did you know there are hundreds of products in their catalog and every single one is healthy and pure? You will find replacements for so many things that you already use on a daily basis. But the best part is you can be rewarded for your purchasing loyalty with the opportunity to get hundreds of dollars in free products that you select to match your family’s needs.

Curious enough to want to check it out? I would love to help you learn more about how to save money and start “bottle swapping” for your health! Please contact me for more information.

What are your alternatives?

Alternative Medicine

This fall I have been gathering produce from my garden and am amazed at how good everything tastes, and what a wide variety of foods we have been able to grow. It has reminded me of how our ancestors relied on what they could gather in the summer and fall to carry them through the winter months.

But food is not the only thing we should be doing to ensure a healthy winter for our families. A well-stocked home will also include natural and safe remedies that will help support health and wellness. My plan includes Young Living Essential Oils.

Along with that, I have collected a variety of reference materials, and of course, check the internet for medical journals and research studies to provide me with ideas to consider.

I encourage you to get ready for wellness! And include “Alternatives” that are safe, including essential oils!Don’t be bullied into thinking your options are limited!
