THE NATURAL LIFE

THE NUMBER OF CHICKENS IN OUR FLOCK
I also HATE getting sick and with being a stay-at-home mom, our son entering Kindergarten for the first time, as well as being a full-time wedding photographer (and all while trying to remodel our 34-acre hazelnut farm), I was on the hunt for ways to help prevent illnesses and keep my family running at tip-top speed. We cannot afford being down and out for the count. Plus, after our first year harvesting our hazelnuts, we have multiple gallons of oil to begin incorporating into our home and lives.
I'm also looking ahead to the future, especially for my son. I want to know that the things I am giving him, whether it be the foods he eats or the cleaning products for his clothes and toys, are doing the least impact on his development and long-term health.
I used to be that person who thought the only way something was clean was if bleach had been used. Or that the only way to get over being sick was to load your body full of the medication aisle at the drug store.
Then our son became a toddler. He was to the age where he liked to help clean, and then stick his cleaning rag in his mouth. And he had figured out how to open all kinds of bottles and jars, medicinal ones included, especially since vitamins are his absolute favorite. I knew our household needed a more natural approach.

Young Living Essential Oils have a ‘Seed to Seal’ guarantee, yielding the most potent essential oils since 1994. This give you the peace of mind when diffusing, applying topically or ingesting. Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation and cold pressing; the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Any time you hold a bottle of Young Livings powerful essential oils, you are holding nature's pure essence.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as spiritual and emotional uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users; introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible. We are striving for holistic remedies; having an empowered state of mind through taking our health into our own hands and lessening the need for antibiotics or over the counter medications.
It is simple, when you purchase Young Living products, you are getting 26+ years of experience. YL is the only company on the market that has a SEED TO SEAL guarantee. Meaning the oils come straight from the seed into the seal with absolutely no extras. YL guarantees its oils to be 100% pure. The FDA cannot regulate oils. Which means any company can claim 100% pure and organic as long as the bottle has 1 drop of the real thing. YL tests the quality of their oils in house and by a third party ensuring that we are receiving 100% purity. If, for whatever reason, something tests less than 100% pure, it is always taken off the product selection. YL hasn’t had a product recall in over 25 years and is certified NON-GMO.
Young Living created a starter kit that is the easiest and best way to begin your journey onto wellness. They thoughtfully crafted together products that allow anyone to dive right in and have all the tools they need to "ditch and switch" from toxic, chemical-laden products to a more natural option. On top of that, Young Living offers the option to participate in their Essential Rewards program that not only provides you with free products each month, but also rewards points back for the things you are purchasing no matter your order size.
When you purchase your starter kit, you are not just purchasing the tools you need to succeed. You are also joining a vast network of individuals who support one another, encourage one another, educate one another and celebrate successes as we grow our Young Living businesses (should you be choosing that route).
One of the biggest draws [for us] in joining Young Living initially was that we did not have to commit to selling anything or purchase any minimum amount each month. You can simply purchase your starter kit and any additional products, in any amount, whenever you desire.
However, we very quickly learned all that Young Living has to offer [way more than "just a few oils"] and have embarked on a mission to empower others in their natural life journey.
