So aside from the million questions I get on how to use my essential oils I also get questions on why I decided to start using essential oils. It's a bit of a personal story, but I wanted to share with you all because I'm sure some of my reasons are very relatable and hopefully they can show you the sincere benefit of using these oils.
Back in December I had a few different tests done and one thing led to another and I was in extreme pain and unsure what was going on. I'm legitimately always healthy and have rarely been sick my entire life (I'm talking maybe one case of strep throat in high school and a few cold here and there). I have dealt with migraines, diagnosed as being stress-related, but that's honestly it. I feel extremely blessed that this is the case and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Well, December threw a wrench in that history as I was diagnosed as having a rare viral infection that would taker than usual (think how a cold runs its course in a couple of weeks). I was in pain, I couldn't eat, and I was extremely unhappy about the whole situation. Because can't be treated as easily as bacterial infections the doctor actually recommended I research essential oils. Of course they do not cure anything and aren't a prescription from my doctor, but they were a recommendation just to remedy some of my discomforts along with promote my overall health and wellness.
I have a friend from college that got involved with Young Living essential oils earlier that year so I decided to reach out to her for more information and I ended up purchasing my premium starter kit. The PSK included a diffuser, and 12 different oils that are most common and most used. The reason I trusted this company was because of their 'seed to seal' promise. That means the contents of the bottle are 100% extraction from the plant from which they come. Some of the oils sold in store only have 10% of the actual oil and the rest are fillers and chemicals that are harmful to your body! In my mind, that defeats the whole purpose of using oils. So, in becoming a Young Living member I was pleased with their promise and have had remarkable success using their products.
A lot of you ask how to get started and the easiest way is to purchase the premium starter kit. It's the same kit above and gives you all of the tools and oils to really start exploring what works for you and how you can begin to incorporate them into your everyday life. It runs about $150 which is almost half off of the retails price. Plus, buying the premium starter kit gives you access to wholesale prices for the entire year if you buy a minimum of $50 worth of products within that year... pretty sweet deal to me! As always reach out with any questions and I'm happy to help you on your journey with essential oils!
