I couldn’t have been less interested in essential oils when my sister-in-law gifted me some oils and told me, “Use them. I KNOW you’ll love them.”
Yeah, okay thanks. I had been using essential oils to make my own cleaning products for awhile, but for anything else? I didn’t really believe the hype.
But I tried them out, because I’m a good sister-in-law. And turned out…I was dead wrong. They were better than the hype. I adored them.
My dalliance with essential oils turned into a full fledged love affair. I use them daily.
Essential oils are like one more awesome thing to have in my mommy toolbox to support healthy kids and non-toxic living. And since I’m battling an autoimmune disease (Interstitial Cystitis) that recently flared up after a few years of remission, my health has become a much more important focus in our home lately.
I love using oils for cleaning, diffusing in the home, and topically. I’ve tried several brands, but now I only purchase from one because quality is so crucial for effectiveness (and safety!) with essential oils–especially if they’re going to touch your skin. So Young Living’s therapeutic grade oils have my heart. I see them work over and over again for my family and it makes me happy.
How to Get Started with Essential Oils
If you’re interested in using essential oils in your home, I highly recommend beginning with the Young Living Premium Starter Kit that includes 11 oils, samples and goodies, and a diffuser. I use my diffuser every single day!
The starter kit is so cost-effective for getting set up with oils. The starter kit with the dew drop diffuser is $160 (bough separately, the contents of the kit would cost $330!) and it allows you to become a wholesale member with Young Living and receive 24% off all your future purchases (as well as some other great perks). And there’s no strings attached to becoming a member. You are NOT obligated to sell oils or do anything but enjoy your discount.
The oils included in the starter kit are…
- Frankincense Essential Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- R.C.™ Essential Oil Blend: Contains Eucalyptus globulus, Myrtle, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus radiata, Eucalyptus citriodora, Lavender, Cypress, Black Spruce, Peppermint
