Trends fly around the blogosphere at lightning speed, and suddenly everyone is doing them. At first, I thought that is all that the Young Living Essential Oils frenzy would be, a passing trend. Several bloggers I admire started posting about them months ago, and while my curiosity was piqued, I chose to steer clear. I didn't want to hop on the bandwagon just because. No ma'am, no thanks.
But the more I read about them, the more my curiosity grew. Could these little bottles full of natural remedies really work? Were they worth the investment? What if I join the wrong team? Do I really have time for this? The questions circled and circled at a dizzying pace. Finally, I put it on my goal list to save up for the premium starter kit to see what it was all about.
That next weekend while at a trade fair with my mom we ran into the sweetest mother/daughter duo who had a booth about their oils, and they sealed the deal. These gals love the Lord so much and were quick to share their hearts behind the business and their efforts to go back to the gifts God gave in the garden, these natural elements that heal and help His people. They were SUCH a source of encouragement and joy that it made so much sense to dive in.
I took the leap, and it has made all the difference!
Now, almost two months later, I am absolutely SOLD on YL Essential Oils,
and I wanted to share my journey from the beginning with some of
the how-to's which were so helpful.
The spring semester was the hardest I had experienced in a long time, and I was suffering physically. I couldn't sleep, and when I did it was very lightly, leaving me awake much of the night. I was struggling with anxiety and overwhelm in a way like never before, paralyzed with fear and the inability to tackle what I needed to. I had also been experiencing food sensitivities and digestive issues for months with no known cause or remedy. After a little research and practice, I have found essential oil remedies that have helped tremendously!
But what's the big deal, you might ask?
To me the "big deal" about essential oils came in three parts:
1. The community aspect of Young Living is how the business thrives. When you sign up for your premium starter kit, you join a team who are there to help and support you along the way. Dia and Martha are in my direct "up-line" and they have been more than willing to answer any questions and get me going from the starting line. Our team has tons of resources, such as Facebook groups, newsletters, and personal check-ins that can simplify the process and put answers at your fingertips. If you sign up with me, I will be in YOUR "up-line" and more than willing to help you dive in!
2. The results were shocking! I started putting Lavender on my wrists at night and diffusing it an hour before bed, and I started falling asleep so quickly and staying asleep! Two feats that had been nearly impossible for months. I had tried a different essential oil for my stomach troubles, but after ordering DiGize and applying it with coconut oil and a hot pad, I found relief within the hour whereas the pain would typically keep me up between 3-5 hours. And now I never leave my house without Stress Away, a lovely vanilla-smelling oil which has alleviated my anxiety (and doubles as a perfume!) with ease. I have now used every oil in my starter kit, and there are several I go to daily. These are no joke, y'all!
3. The joy of sharing with others seems to be Young Living-wide! Everyone I have encountered who uses the oils in real life or online seem quick to share their secrets (and the oils!), so eager to help others find healing, rest, peace, whatever it might be. I have a few large resource books that have been so helpful, but I started out by searching through Pinterest for recipes. "Essential oils for Insomnia" was my first and tips/tricks GALORE popped up! My pinterest page is HERE with some of my favorites. There are also Facebook groups where questions posed are answered within minutes, and everyone seems truly delighted to do so.
I will sharing my essential oils journey here on the blog as well as @lemonloveessentials on Instagram. You'll get a glimpse of how these oils are used in daily life, new discoveries as other oils arrive, and my own recipes/tips/tricks that I come up with along the way.
