After a few months of debating whether or not to take the essential oils plunge, I dove in with Young Living! Like a lot of you, I had heard buzz here & there about essential oils. Then I met Aubrea Gilbert, one of my Girl Boss Features, on Instagram! After interviewing her for her feature I joined her essential oils group on Facebook. I saw a lot of posts with information on all of the chemicals that are in our homes & started thinking about making a change.
Scot & I have used chemical free products before. We had a subscription to the Honest Company at one point. However, we weren’t entirely pleased with the results from those products compared to the chemical infused products from the store. That’s always the issue isn’t it? That & the COST! However our Bull Terrier has EXTREMELY sensitive skin & seems to only do well on bedding washed with natural ingredients.
Then I met up with a friend for lunch I hadn’t seen in a while. She also is a member of Young Living like Aubrea. We ended up talking about essential oils for at least an hour. She told me which oils she loves, what she has been able to make with them, what she uses around & for her dogs, & all about what joining Young Living would mean. I came home from that lunch & told Scot everything she had told me!
In addition to all of the great benefits using essential oils gives, one of the great things about Young Living is you don’t have to sell anything EVER if you don’t want to. You can just be a member, like you’re a member at Costco! Another great thing is their Essential Rewards program. With ER you get points back on every product you buy in a monthly subscription, as well as free oils just for ordering each month. The minimum amount you have to spend is $50, but I promise once you start, you won’t have an issue hitting $50. There’s also rewards given each month the more you spend on your ER order.
Adding another monthly payment to our bills calendar didn’t seem like it would be the easiest thing to do but once we thought about the money we would be saving in the long run by switching over to oils, it made it worth it. When you make the switch to EO’s you are supporting the different systems in your body & living an overall healthier lifestyle. You are replacing going to the store each week or every other week for various products with buying EO’s & using them instead.
Another awesome part of Young Living is they sell more than just EO’s! They have a line just for babies, just for animals, they have an entire line of make-up, they have health products, cleaning products, energy drinks, & more! If you’re interested in learning more, check out the LIVE video I did in the MWJ SQUAD Facebook group. It is loaded with information on using oils safely, what all you can do with them, the benefits, the ways to use them & more!
