I believe that using essential oils and natural products should be accessible and fun!
I joined Young Living because I was looking for emotional support. Life as a mom of two and a new business owner felt just a teensy bit overwhelming...add in the shorter days of winter and the fact that we were in the middle of getting our house ready for sale and I knew that I needed a little help to keep my spirits up and my head in the game. I ordered my Premium Starter Kit and haven't looked back since! Some of my early favourites were Lavender, Frankincense and Northern Lights Black Spruce, but I quickly fell in love with each and every one of the 11 bottles that came with the kit.
Oils are the lifeblood of the plant and their constituents work really well with our body to help support and balance our systems (think nervous system, immune system, respiratory system etc.). By definition, essential oils are the vital (and aromatic) fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. You can think of the oil as a plant's "immune system" - it is essential to the life and health of the plant. Oils are typically extracted through careful steam distillation that ensures all the important therapeutic and health-giving constituents of the oil remain intact. We're so blessed to have access to these little bottles that harness the power of the botanical world God has created so beautifully!
How I use them
We use them aromatically, topically and internally. With the Premium Starter Kit comes a diffuser, which is super easy to use and makes your house smell amazing. Special technology allows the molecules to be released into the the air to create a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere in your home. Fun fact: Within twenty minutes of inhaling an oil, the molecules are absorbed into the cells of your body! One of my favourite diffuser combos from the starter kit is Peppermint and Lemon to support focus.
Topically, there are some that I feel comfortable using undiluted (gentle oils like Lavender) but many oils I like to use diluted with a carrier oil. One of my favourite ways is to make rollers using essential oils with a carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil), which makes it so easy to use them! My kids love that they have their own rollers and they love to apply them themselves.
In Canada, we also have a Plus line of oils, which are labelled for ingestion and can be used to flavour food. I love a drop of Lime or Grapefruit in my water! Similarly, the US market also has a Vitality line labelled for ingestion.
In Canada we also have a number of Young Living oils and products approved as Natural Health Products (a big deal!), which means that we're allowed to make claims for certain health benefits. Yay!
Why Young Living?
Some of the things that initially attracted me to Young Living were the pretty packaging (superficial but true, haha) and more importantly the community around it. Then as I researched, here are some of the facts I that ultimately won me over:
+ Young Living has 20+ years of experience and is the world leader and pioneer in essential oil research and distillation process.
+ Young Living oils are beyond organic. Why? Check out their seed to seal process here.
+ Each batch of oils is rigorously tested in house for therapeutic viability. Check out their testing process here.
+ Young Living owns their own farms across the globe. Read about their farms here.
+ Even when they buy the oil from a grower other than one of their own farms, they still ensure that the Seed to Seal Promise can be delivered.
+ You can actually visit the farms and participate in the harvest/distillation process. Watch the Idaho Balsam Fir harvest here.
+ Young Living is the only company to submit their oils to AIRASE for purity testing. Read more about AIRASE here.
+ With over 120 singles and blends, Young Living has a great selection of oils available.
+ Young Living has an unmatched Seed to Seal process to guarantee the purity and potency of every oil.
"We believe that you and your family deserve products that are genuine, free of synthetic chemicals, and of unmatched purity. Seed to Seal® is both a promise to you and a reflection of our sense of global stewardship."
Through each step of our production process on both our own and partner farms, we use the most exacting standards possible to make our products, your life, and the earth better. Only one company can make the Seed to Seal promise. Only Young Living.
What's the best way to get started?
Hands down, the Premium Starter kit is the BEST way to get started - it sets you up with ALL you need for a variety of day-to-day situations!
It includes a beautiful diffuser (in Canada you have two options, and there are several in the US) which uses ultrasonic technology to disperse millions of tiny essential oil particles into the air and benefits us as we inhale them! Your house will smell amazing, yes, but it's about so much more than that!
And it comes with 11 bottles of essential oils!
Thieves - supports the immune system and smells delicious and cozy. We use this one daily!
Purification* - gets rid of bad odours, purifies the air and great for spot treating blemishes.
Copaiba - has amazing calming properties.
Frankincense - supports the immune system and makes your skin glow! It supports both the body and emotions in a multitude of ways and was given to baby Jesus as a gift (which should tell you something!).
R.C.* - contains a blend of oils that support the respiratory system and smells invigorating.
DiGize - supports digestion, a great one to have on hand for everyday and especially for travel!
Lemon - is uplifting, relaxing and great for cleaning.
Peppermint - put a drop on your tummy after a meal, a great pick-me-up during exercise or a long day.
Panaway - rub on sore muscles.
Lavender - so great for relaxation and sleep, skin and emotions.
Northern Lights Black Spruce* - grounding and relaxes the mind and body.
*In the US, the kit contains Citrus Fresh instead of Purification, Raven instead of R.C and Stress Away instead of Northern Lights Black Spruce.
