How My Essential Oils Journey Began

My good friends Donna and Stephanie were telling me all about how the essential oils they got from their Young Living starter kit were improving their lives.  Stephanie swore by the mood enhancing Frankincense and Donna was over the moon about her diffuser and homemade Valor roller.  I was skeptical, but intrigued and impressed by Young Living’s sourcing and distilling practices (I like to be informed before I make a decision), so I decided to jump in with them and became a member.  I wasn’t sure if I would sell any oils, but agreed that if I liked them I would order more and reap the benefits of the reward points, so I also joined Essential Rewards.

About a week later I received my kit and it was beautifully presented.  10 oils on top and a second layer with the bonus oil Stress Away, plus samples, and shareable vial bottles!  I was eager to plug in the diffuser and drop some oils in.  I started with some Frankincense and Lavender.  That was all I had to do and I was in love with the beautiful scents.  I joined Donna and Stephanie’s Pinterest group and pinned everything I saw on diffuser blends and tips on wellness.

I was enjoying the scents for about a week when a cold hit me.  I was congested with headaches and ear aches.  I used Lemon in my water, Peppermint and Lavender on my forehead and as a steam bath, and Raven in the diffuser.  I cannot begin to tell you how much these oils helped me.*  I was starting to see how these little bottles were for more than just smelling nice!

As I recovered from my cold, my oldest son fell ill to the dreaded stomach virus!  After rubbing his back and giving him words of encouragement, I yelled for my husband to look up some blends for a sick stomach (please!).  Sure enough, Lavender and Peppermint were top on the list.  I used both oils on his back and he fell asleep within minutes.  The next day when he woke up we used Copaiba and Digize on his stomach and Thieves on the bottom of his feet.*

After all the benefits I saw the kit was having for my family I couldn’t help but tell all my friends and family!  I see that they listen to me with skepticism, like I once did, but all I say is, “you have to try it to see the benefits!”  So what are you waiting for?  Make the leap and join our enthusiasm for these wonderful little oils!  Click here to purchase a kit.  Aren’t sure about whether to buy a kit, become a member, or just buy some oils?  Read my article, What’s So Great About This Starter Kit?, for the low down.
