To be honest, I've used oils off and on (mostly off) for the last decade. I've always loved, and kept, the Stress Away and Deep Relief rollers, plus lavender to diffuse from time to time for sleeping. Beyond that, though, I didn't take much interest.
Last year, when our youngest pupper - Bronte - endured several skin infections due to the miserable heat of summertime, I dug into research on holistic and non-toxic ways to treat her sensitive skin. I discovered that by mixing a few drops of lemon and lavender oils, and adding them to 8 ounces of coconut oil in a glass bottle, her sensitive skin not only was immediately soothed, but also vastly improved!
The BIG game-changer for me, however, came in January 2019, when I woke up one morning with incredible pain in my, both, my neck and back. Within days, I struggled to make it through the work day at school and finally found myself in desperate need of chiropractic treatments. One of the first things I noticed about Dr. Willian's office was the line of Young Living Thieves that were displayed throughout the space. While I had used Thieves for several years to boost our immune systems during winter sickness season, I had NO CLUE there was a whole line of Thieves for household use! Hand soaps, dishwashing liquid, counter cleaners...
Yet even this didn't lure me in...
It would be 9 months later, when - for the first time ever - at my yearly doctor appointment my labs came back flagged "abnormal." In more than one category. Multiple categories,in fact, including a "disrupted endocrine system." The primary concern seemed to be my liver count. After undergoing a second set of labs (fingers crossed that the first results were just a fluke), receiving the same results, undergoing abdominal sonograms, and then waiting on those results...
The somber message was delivered. My liver - though only 52 years young and spared the abuse many of my peers had put theirs through - had undergone its own share of abuse, and from things I had not really ever thought twice about. A migraine sufferer since puberty, I had spent over 25 years on prescription migraine meds, plus I had downed who EVEN knows how much OTC pain meds over the years for the relentless headaches. But now my doctor was saying that I was to never swallow another one, change my diet, increase my water intake, and come back in three months to see if my liver was healing.
That day began our deep dive into the oily industry. Starting, obviously with essential oils to help combat the migraines, we then moved on to oils for emotions, oils to support our immune systems, oils to support sleep. Then we learned about the Think Dirty app and began to run our normal household cleaners, hygiene products, and hair care through it. Shocked, it didn't take long to realize just why my endocrine system was "disrupted."
This prompted the slow but steady four months of "Ditch & Switch," throwing out the toxic products and replacing them with clean, non-toxic ones, free of parabens and sulfates. We incorporated Young Living's line of Thieves products, as well as a few others that we've come to love as we continue to research this new lifestyle and explore the amazing world of essential oils .

Essential oils are actually used a lot in everyday life. You probably use them without knowing all the time! They can be found in lotions, perfumes, skincare products, toothpaste etc. However, not all oils are the same quality…. A lot of people ask the question:
“Can’t I just buy Essential Oils from a grocery or drug store?”
Before I chose to get started with Young Living Essential Oils by joining as a wholesale member with a Premium Starter Kit, I bought oils at my local box store. The only positive results that I had were that they smelled nice. As I did my research on the essential oil companies, I found out quickly why I wasn’t getting any results.
More than likely, those grocery store essential oils were adulterated. You’re probably wondering what in the world that means. My Essential Oils Pocket Reference explains this well on page 25:
"Today much of the lavender oil sold in America is a hybrid called lavandin, grown and distilled throughout the world. Lavandin, grown and distilled throughout the world. Lavandin is often heated to evaporate the camphor, mixed with synthetic linalyl acetate to improve the fragrance, and then sold as lavender oil. Most consumers don’t know the difference and are happy to buy it for $7 to $10 per half ounce in various stores and on the internet. This is one of the reasons why it is important to know about the integrity of the essential oil company or vendor."
From strict industry standards and testing to their rigorous Seed to Seal Guarantee, Young Living came out leaps and bounds above the other essential oil companies that I researched. Additionally, they’ve been in business for over 21 years. Now that you know the difference between adulterated and unadulterated essential oils, you’ll be better educated to make this decision for yourself too.
Essential oils are not regulated therefore companies can put any filler or additive into what they call an “essential oil.” Most of what you will find at the grocery store is either another ingredient altogether or has toxic fillers in it.
When you are using essential oils on your body for any reason related to health or skin care, it is very dangerous to use these types of oils and can actually bring more harm. You can have reactions to these types of oils and they can make conditions worse.
Young Living essential oils are 100% therapeutic grade. Within 20 minutes of applying oils, they can be found in every cell in your body! These pure oils are distilled from the “lifeblood” of plants and contain the plant’s own immunity, hormones, and scents. When you pick a rose and break off the stem, you’ll always notice there is a bit of watery substance. This is the source that the pure essential oil comes from. And this God-given source was intelligently created to benefit our whole body!!!
Young Living has rigorous testing and standards for their oils. No fillers are ever added to Young Living’s oils and no toxins are present. In fact, they don’t even use pesticides or herbicides on their crops or soil so that toxins won’t be present. Anything that comes from a farm outside of Young Living’s farms must meet these strict standards as well. You actually can visit the Young Living farms anytime you want and see their methods of growth and testing. That’s how open they are about their purity. You can also see YL’s seed to seal promise on their website. “Seed to Seal” is not a slogan, it’s who Young Living is!
