Essential Oils 101: What You Need to Know About Young Living
Hi friends! If you're here, I'm going to guess that you've seen me talking about essential oils over on my Instagram and want to learn more! Just know that I am always here to help! Feel free to send me a DM, send me an email, or comment on this post if you have any questions at all after reading through. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) Let's get started, shall we?
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant. Distilled from flowers, trees, roots, fruit, rinds, resins, & herbs, essential oils consist of over 100 natural, organic compounds.
In humans, essential oils provide support for every system of the body: skeletal, muscular, circulatory, endocrine (hormones), respiratory, & immune. They also support brain health and can be used for emotional and spiritual support.
The majority of oils can be used aromatically (with a diffuser), topically (applied to the skin), or internally (ingestion).
THE YOUNG LIVING DIFFERENCE
Young Living has been an essential oil company for 20+ years and is trusted by over 2 million people! Their oils are beyond organic and entirely safe to diffuse, apply, and ingest.
Young Living has what they call their Seed to Seal guarantee. Young Living's Seed to Seal promise means that they have control of the entire process, from planting and harvesting, to distilling the oils, and packaging them up. This ensures that Young Living is giving us authentic, pure essential oils that we 100% know we can trust! Read more about Seed to Seal here.
Young Living also has so much to offer, beyond oils. In addition to essential oils, they have a baby line, a kid's line, a household cleaning line, every day supplements, and their own non-toxic makeup line. This goes to show that Young Living is for everyone! They are an amazing company that is here to help you live a non-toxic life!
So, here's my story! Before I signed up with Young Living, my background info was limited. I knew of essential oils and I knew they had some pretty amazing benefits, but I never really saw people I knew using them regularly.
Once my friend Veronica started to share them on her Instagram, I knew I had to sign up. By seeing how she used them in her daily life and hearing how they were benefitting her, I knew they would amazing for me too! So, I purchased my premium starter kit and here I am, sharing essential oils with you all because they are truly life changing! Here's how they've helped me so far!
My go-to night time oils are cedarwood & lavender. I am not the most sound sleeper, but this combination has changed that. I put 15 drops of each in a roller bottle and add fractionated coconut oil to fill the bottle. I then roll it on the bottoms of my feet at night and it seriously helps me stay asleep! Trust me, I was amazed too! They are also great in the diffuser at night time.
In the morning, lemon & peppermint are a winning combo in the diffuser. They create such a refreshing scent that really helps me focus! I love diffusing them while I'm getting ready for my day and while I'm sitting at my desk doing work.
Another way I use peppermint is by putting about 20-30 drops in a roller bottle and filling it the rest of the way with fractionated coconut oil. I like to call this my relief roller bottle! At night, I sometimes get killer headaches and I've never been one to just pop some Advil or Tylenol in hopes that it will help. I would honestly rather deal with the headache than constantly be putting those pills into my body. WELL. I am here to tell you that rolling peppermint on the back of my neck and my temples works like a charm when I catch my headache from the start. I feel relief within minutes! You can also add panaway to your roller bottle for a little extra relief if you also experience muscle tension in your neck when you get a headache.
So many essential oils also have great skin benefits! If you've been following me for a while, you know I love a good facial oil. I'm still experimenting to see which oils work best for my skin, but some of my favorites are frankincense, purification, and lavender. Blue tansy is another oil that is great for skin and it should be arriving at my doorstep this week!!
