I just can’t believe it’s been six years since my family and I started our Young Living Essential Oils journey! Wow! Time sure does fly! We may just have a problem as you can see here! We also have a diffuser in every room along with one in my car.
Six years ago, I was introduced to these amazing little bottles of goodness when I ordered my first YLEO Starter Kit. I am so thankful I was! They have changed our life for the better with all the therapeutic qualities they offer us.
From the Essential Oils Pocket Reference, “An essential oil is that aromatic, volatile liquid that is within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds and that is usually extracted through steam distillation.”
Did you know that plants not only play a vital role in the ecological balance of our planet but they are also linked to the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of mankind since the beginning of time?
This is precisely why essential oils are so powerful. They are made up of hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds that help our bodies to achieve a state of homeostasis or balance.
We use our oils for everything – for a stuffy or runny nose, achy back, neck or shoulders, anxious feelings, to get better sleep, improve our energy, and breathe better. These are just a few things we use them for.
Right now I am diffusing an oil blend called Christmas Spirit. It is one of my absolute favorites, smells amazing, and I always bring it out around this time of year. From the Young Living website:
“With some of our most popular Christmas essential oils, Christmas Spirit™ taps into the happiness, joy, and comfort associated with the holiday season. It combines Orange, Cinnamon Bark, and Spruce to create a warm, spicy, and sweet Christmas essential oil blend that’s sure to be loved by everyone in the family.”
With cold and flu season here, we are always diffusing something to help keep us healthy. We often diffuse Thieves and Peppermint and also make up a roller bottle with these two to apply to our neck, back, and feet. We take a capsule with Thieves and Oregano oils if we start to feel bad. These two are power houses and kick whatever we are fighting to the curb.
If you’d like to learn even more ways we use our oils, you can check it out here. There are so many uses and even our kids, who are now 10 and 13, have been using them for six years.
Recently, I tried another brand of essential oils. They were not even close to the quality of Young Living and I returned them to the company. Young Living has a strict Seed to Seal process that assures every single bottle is of the highest quality.
