Essential Oils 101: What You Need to Know About Young Living
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the most powerful part o the plant. Distilled from flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, bushes, 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 the Seed to Seal guarantee! What does that mean & why does it matter? Basically, it means that Young Living promises to give us authentic, pure essential oils that we know we can trust. The FDA does not regulate the essential oil industry. Young Living guarantees that their essential oils are 100% pure, whereas the cheaper ones you find on Amazon are most likely diluted with synthetic ingredients which is not cool. I want to know that I am putting safe ingredients in/on my body, ya know?
With Young Living, you know that the essential oils you are getting are 100% safe to use in your daily life! Read more about Seed to Seal here.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITES
If you're ready to sign up, but also want some personal testimony, 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! I am still learning how to use all of the different oils, but one thing I am most excited about is creating my own beauty products! I will be posting DIY recipes right here on the blog, so stay tuned for some fun, oily goodness!
In the images below, I talk about some of my favorite essential oils that are included in the premium starter kit and how they've made a difference for me! The only one not included in the premium starter kit is is Cedarwood; I added that to my first order because I needed something for sleep and it has been amazing to say the least. My March ER order should be here soon & I CAN'T WAIT to share it with you so be sure to follow along on Instagram!
At night I love to diffuse cedarwood & lavender. I'm not the most sound sleeper, but this combo has helped me stay asleep! I also have these two in a roller ball that I apply to the bottoms of my feet at night which works just as well.
If you've been following me for a while, you know I love face oils. When I learned that I could add essential oils to my moisturizer I was so excited! Because they are so potent, I only add one drop to my moisturizer. Purification helps with blemishes & frankincense helps with skin tone! I've also heard that lemon helps with scarring but have yet to try it.
Lemon & peppermint are a winning combo in the diffuser. I love diffusing these two in the morning while I'm getting ready for the day. It's such a refreshing scent that really helps you focus! I also diffuse it while I'm sitting at my desk working, aka right now!
