Why Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are an ancient practice that uses the concentrated essence of a plant for countless varieties reasons. Whether it be for the mind or body, using only the purest essential oils is must for natural living, healthful lifestyles. Perhaps Young Living describes it best: "Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come. Any time you hold a bottle of Young Living’s powerful essential oils, you hold nature's pure essence."
Having used essential oils in my skin care practice for the last 23 years, I was always intrigued. I loved the smells and that they were the life blood of the plant, doing so much more than making me and my client relax. I really never knew the difference impurity made in other essential oils until I decided to use them on my kiddos for some common issues we were having at our house. I don’t like the thought of using medication in every passing moment or applying a subpar product, so I thought, what the heck… let’s give these little bottles try. I went to a class on Young Living and completely fell in love with their Seed to Seal promise. I wanted to make sure I was using something that was pure and promising. Well, it worked like a charm. Our house was completely transformed literally in a few weeks. I felt good about my choice and knew I had to share. I love that my kids turn to something so natural when they are struggling with an issue. IT TRULY HAS MADE MY HEART HAPPY.
I use it almost every day, it’s my own personal stress ball. I love it not only for its amazing smell (if you haven’t smelled YL lavender, you haven’t smelled a true lavender)but also because it’s just so versatile. I keep it in almost every room, including my spa of course.
Oh how I love thee. A combination of some amazing oils to help me aspire to super mom level. You won’t find me without it before a class or live video, it gives me crazy super confidence and I smell pretty awesome too.
Because I’m a self-admitted Eucalyptus addict. I love this one because YL blends all three types of Eucalyptus for some serious respiratory support. Add this with some lavender and prepare for some pretty stellar slumber.
I love these together. Weather I’m in church, a conference, or teaching a class, I love these two to help me get the most out of the experience. They help me stay focused and learn to have faith in something bigger than myself.
My own guardian angel. Ever heard of an empathist? This girl right here... and my oldest couldn’t be a bigger one if he tried. I find a little of this oil helps keep us centered and a little more guarded and protected where we need to be. A little on the shoulders and back of the neck works for us.
