Hey ya’ll so here is my WHY…..
Like some of you I once thought of essential oils as hippie junk. I mean get out of here with your “crunchy” oil talk and all naturalness. I need to go disinfect my kitchen with soft scrub and bleach, buh-bye. o_O Yea. Okay so I keep hearing about these essential oils. I know lavender is a plant and its purple and smells nice. Tell me more whats the big deal what am I missing here? I did my research and I did a lot. I got really interested in it when I was pregnant with Bowen, my 2nd baby. I had really early nesting and it was almost compulsive. I was cleaning all day after every single little itty bitty mess. Thats a lot of chemicals and toxic fumes I am breathing in and exposing my family to including my unborn baby. I had purchased some oils from the all natural market. Hey I found 100% pure EOs for pretty cheap I am going to make some awesome cleaners that are safe and have no guilt when cleaning. NOT
SO did you know that the FDA has no real rules for EOs just that there needs to be at least 5% of actual essential oil in the bottle for them to have 100% Pure on the label!!! CRAZY right!?!?! Yea so what is the other 95%? Solvents,chemicals, synthetics. Not cool. I bought these to be healthier what am I really putting on my skin and cleaning with? I stopped using them immediately.
I was now a mommy to a 2 year old and a newborn and a mompreneur. My life was nuts and I was feeling the stress of it all. The last thing I wanted was to go to the dr only for them to say “hey here is this RX you’ll be fine” I am exclusively breastfeeding so I would never want to take anything that could compromise my supply or get into my baby’s system. I wanted to do things different for my children. With Lylah I was a first time mom I did what everyone said was right. She’s gassy…here are some drops….fever…. here is this med….she is teething…. here is this gel. I wanted a more natural way to care for my children without the use of over the counter medicines (of course for non life threatening issues only). Someone mentioned to me about EOs helping with stress and anxiety and how Young Living is great for naturally caring for children too! After reading and reading I was soooo ready to jump head first into the Young Living Essential Oil goodness. Bring it on. They have this Seed to Seal promise. They handle and care for the seeds , the planting, the harvesting, distillation, testing the purity, even their bottles and labels….all the way into your hands YL has a hand in it. There are ZERO chemicals, ZERO synthetics. It is PURE. Here is a link to a great video about the process. Truly amazing. I knew this company was who I wanted to get my oils from. I was ready, I needed a healthier way to care for my family for myself and I knew I was going to get the best from them.
I ordered my kit…it was a waiting game stalking the FedEx truck and hard core stalking my tracking number (please don’t tell me you didn’t or haven’t yet or won’t because you did and you will) Its like Christmas morning the day you hear the fedex truck stop in front of your house or you get home and there is a big ole box on the door step! Man I had that box opened so fast! I had all the oils opened and on me within 10 min. I was hooked!!!
You get a Home Diffuser and 11 oils
I could just look through this book all day daydreaming about what to get next month!
My collection is growing and as you can see some have been pretty well loved 🙂
Y’all THIS is my why!
I mean look at that love! I have to keep them healthy and safe.
These two love to get oil on their feet!
My favorites for them Gentle Baby, Thieves, Lemon, Lavender, and Peace & Calming so far 🙂
All I can say is they work and its not hippie junk…. ITS AWESOMENESS!
Its an amazing feeling knowing I can treat my family naturally and live in a more chemical free home….we are on our way to a cleaner lifestyle, come with us!
