I started hearing about essential oils a couple of years ago. I didn’t understand what all the hype was about. I was content with our health so why would I need or want essential oils. Plus the prices scared my inner frugal goddess to death. There was no way I was going to buy any essential oils.
Fast forward to the winter 2014 in South Texas. I was ready to make a healthy lifestyle change for my family! I started asking my FB friends what they REALLY thought about oils, especially to help maintain healthy respiratory symptoms. I didn’t want to hear the sales pitches, I wanted to hear if I had any chance of feeling half way human during the most miserable three months of my life each year. A couple weeks after I asked for feedback an anonymous FB friend gifted my family a set of oils from Plant Therapy. I jumped right in to use them.
Guess what I realized…the essential oils were actually helping me and my family in numerous ways. I didn’t have a diffuser so we just applied the oils to hot points on our body or sprayed them on our pillows, shoes, and in the room. As I saw a more healthy lifestyle aided with these oils it peaked my curiosity to whether or not buying from a different essential oil company would lead to better/different results. Basically I wanted to know if other “top name” companies were the same as what I had or better.
Let me remind you all that I am VERY skeptical! I do not jump onto trends! I do not just buy items, I research endlessly to make sure I am making the best purchase for our money. I am frugal, expensive items don’t exist in my house unless; (a) I find it on extreme clearance, (b) we’ve saved for the purchase, (c) we have researched the item. I am the person at Target that puts 20 items in her cart but then hands 15 of the items to the cashier at the end because I’ve talked myself out of them all, only purchasing 5 items. I buy the essentials. I don’t like splurging. It’s just in my nature.
I spent 2 months researching essential oils. I read about the process of extracting the oil from the plant. I read about how different companies farm or buy their oil. I read about MANY different companies. I read reviews. I talked to friends about companies they were passionate about. I read the good, the bad, and the ugly about the “top companies”. I wasn’t about to make any major purchases until I had found the right company that fit my family perfectly.
Finally, after talking it over with my husband and praying on it for a few days I decided to purchase a premium starter kit from Young Living. Young Living was the right company for our family for so many reasons I found during my research. One of the top reasons we chose Young Living is their “Seed to Seal” promise. I had no idea that I would literally fall in love with essential oils once again after I received my Young Living premium starter kit! In one short month I have become very passionate about helping aide my families health with Young Living Essential Oils. From skeptic to believer, I am now in LOVE with Young Living Essential Oils!!
