Living Essentially // Q&A



You've heard me talk about them on the blog and have seen them all over my Instagram feed. Essential Oils. There are social media communities built around them, holistic moms, doulas, yoga fanatics, and natural living enthusiasts all swear by their magical qualities. They are the must have in your bag, medicine cabinet, and kitchen drawer. 
Like all things, I was skeptical before trying essential oils. Was this a fad? Some trendy money spending gimmick that will quickly pass? What are these oils?! I was so curious! Then, two years ago I was looking to change things up. I was sick of cleaners, personal care products, and air fresheners that were full of chemicals I couldn't pronounce and that made me feel nervous to use around my little ones. I wanted all natural products that I could trust. One of my friends game me a little sample of an oil called Thieves and that is where my oily journey began! Just a mom lookin' out for her family and their wellness.💁🏼Thieves was the oil that got me hooked on what oils could do for my family and made me dive deeper into my Young Living Premium Starter Kit. I ditched all my chemical cleaners and started relying on this little bottle to clean my kitchen...and my bathrooms...and my produce...and our dishes, hands, teeth... I think you get the picture. YES, IT IS THAT GOOD! (And smells amazing!!!) After that, each oil in the kit found its place in our home and in our daily routines. The Premium Starter Kit is the easiest way to start using oils right away and the value is so awesome, looking back I wish I would have signed up sooner!
Scents affect our mood everyday! The smell of lavender has a calming effect and lemon is a fresh and energizing smell. Aromatherapy is all around us and its therapeutic uses are endless, this is why I knew I would benefit from essential oils in my everyday life. Young Living has allowed me to kick chemicals to the curb and support our families health and wellness naturally.
I get a lot of questions from friends, family, and internet buddies about essential oils, how to use them, and how to get started with Young Living all the time so I decided to do a little Q&A in order to answer questions and help anyone who might be looking for a point in the right direction!

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the oils extracted from plants that contain the plant's natural aromatic essence. They are created usually by distilling the plant, often by steam. These essential oils have been used through out history for cosmetic and health purposes.

CAN'T I JUST BUY ANY BRAND OF OILS?
Yes, you can. But not all essential oils are created equally! They aren't regulated which means that anyone can sell pretty much anything and label it essential oil. Some companies dilute their oils, some don't even use plant based materials at all. You have to really do research on companies and the process their essential oils go though. The whole point of using oils is for their all natural properties. I want the most pure plant essence when I purchase oils, that's why I ended up buying through Young Living! Their Seed to Seal process ensures that their oils are the best quality and ethically sourced so you can trust that your family is safe!

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOUNG LIVING OILS?
When I first started using essential oils I collected them one at a time as I discovered each of their uses and how I could incorporate them into my families life. This left me spending high dollar for oils that were diluted or impure. With Young Living oils you are getting the most pure essential oils for a great price. They source out the purest farms or farm themselves, they weed by hand, they control pest with their own oils, and they gently distill their oils without chemicals. They also heavily test their oils to meet therapeutic grade standards. Each bottle is filled with the plant’s “living energy” and in turn their essential oils are 100% therapeutic grade, effective, and safe. When you sign up with Young Living through me you are joining a team to help you on your oil journey and provide you with the best resources and information so you can start using your oils every single day! I will walk beside you and support you in your wellness journey, Looking into the business side of things? I want to help you succeed and reach your goals.
HOW CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS IN MY EVERYDAY LIFE?
When you start your oil journey it can be an overwhelming process. What do I use these oils for? How do I get the most out of these little bottles of goodness? There are so many ways to easily and seamlessly make essential oils a part of your everyday routine. The easiest way is to diffuse your favorite scent with a Young Living diffuser. I diffuse oils to uplift spirits, provide focus, or help cranky little ones calm down for a good night sleep. You can also utilize accessories like roller balls for oil mixtures that you can apply to help with sinus issues, headaches, scratches and “boo boos”, aches and pains, mood lifting, and more. They are also wonderful to include in homemade cleaning products, beauty products, and some are even wonderful to use in your food or to flavor water. Think of them as natural helpers! When you sign up with me and join my oily family you will be provided with all the resources you need to utilize every single oil in your Young Living Premium Starter Kit. You will not feel overwhelmed once we're done with you...you'll be wondering why you ever thought oilin' was too complicated!

HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH YOUNG LIVING?
The most cost effective way to start your Young Living journey is to sign up as a distributor and purchase a YL premium starter kit with diffuser. By becoming a distributor you are not obligated to make sales or meet a monthly quota but it does give you a discounted wholesale price on all oils and kits which means you're saving money with no commitment necessary! If you do want to share your love for essential oils and earn a little extra cash you can share these oils with your friends and family to earn commission or participate in promotions for free oils as a wholesale distributor, totally up to you! The PSK has everything you need to start your oil journey for an incredible price!

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN MY PREMIUM STARTER KIT?
With your starter kit you’ll receive everything you need to start your oils journey. It includes a YL booklet, a user guide, an in home diffuser, distributor resource guide for those of you who want to turn your passion for oils into a business, AromaGlide Roller,  two Lavender sample packets, two Peppermint sample packets, two Peace and Calming sample packets, two Lemon sample packets, two Thieves sample packets, two NingXia Red 2oz. samples, a product guide with price list, and the Everyday Oils Collection.
