I was first introduced to Young Living essential oils years ago when I took a class to learn how to make my own bath salts and soaps. I was impressed with Young Living’s uncompromising commitment to the quality of their therapeutic grade oils. I started using the oils primarily to make my own bath products, along with fresh herbs like rosemary and calendula. But soon I started learning more about essential oils and how to use them topically to support my complete wellness – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The one oil that really made a difference for me was Endoflex, a blend of several oils used to support a healthy endocrine system. It is one of several oils I use every day.
When I bought my Premium Starter Kit I honestly thought I would never use the diffuser. My husband and I are super sensitive to smells and we don’t use scented candles, air fresheners, or anything of that nature. My diffuser sat unused in the box for over a month and during that time my work-related stress was really becoming overwhelming. One day I decided to break open my diffuser and use one of the oils in my starter kit – Stress Away. I was amazed and shocked by two things – first, diffusing a quality grade essential oil is nothing at all like spritzing or plugging in some kind of heavily perfumed air freshener, you only need a few drops and the smell is light and subtle; secondly, diffusing essential oils is a highly effective way to receive the benefits of the oils. Once I started diffusing Stress Away, it made a big difference in my ability to maintain a level of calm and manage all the craziness from my job.
Essential oils are a key piece of what I use to bring my life into balance along with daily gratitude, yoga, and healthy eating. Once I was really experiencing all the ways that essential oils could support me on my journey to a healthier lifestyle, I felt like I needed to share these oils with everyone I know. Sharing the oils eventually led to starting to build my business as a Young Living Independent Distributor and I recently shared my story of how I discovered my purpose and how these oils and my reason for starting a business are an integral part of that purpose.
