Find out why I love Young Living Essential Oils

Why Essential Oils & Why Young Living?

Since I began using Essential Oils,
they have changed my life so drastically that I have to tell you about them.
This might be your first time here, or maybe you are a regular visitor.
Either way, writing this blog is something I have been doing for quite awhile.

Sharing my passion for delicious, well prepared, from-scratch food is very satisfying for me,
because I think what we put in our bodies is extremely important to our overall health and well being.
You will not find much processed food in my fridge or pantry –
we raise as much of our own food as we can manage,
and source as much as possible locally.
What I do buy at the store comes mostly from the perimeter, where they keep the real food, rather than those center aisles where all the processed stuff is.

So using Young Living Essential oils really fits in with how we live. If I can find a more natural way to do something, I will.
I’m not a huge fan of traditional Western medicine, and I hate taking prescriptions especially if there is a better way to do things than to put chemicals in my body.

You can find out a bit about the journey that led me to begin using Young Living Essential oils by reading Why I LOVE Essential Oils.
I am still just completely amazed by how rapidly my quality of life improved.

Once I learned how wonderful these oils are, and how much they can do for people, I could not shut up about it.
My friends and family can confirm that!

But, you know what?
They didn’t get sick of hearing me,
because they could see the results right in front of them and
now quite a few of them are using Young Living Essential oils too!
My husband is the biggest fan of all, because he got his wife back and now he uses oils on a daily basis as well.

What is an Essential Oil?

You do have to be very careful about what essential oils you use though.

I have learned that there are a lot of oils out there that are just not safe for us or our families to use.
They are made very cheaply in places like China, using methods that can result in some pretty nasty stuff ending up in the oils themselves.
Not something I want to take a chance on at all.
These chancy oils are available in some pretty surprising places,
like big natural food retailers and health food stores.
fieldsI trust Young Living.
They control every part of the process that brings a bottle of oil to my door.
Young Living is committed to environmentally responsible practices,
and the oils they extract are tested both by YL, and by a 3rd party to ensure purity and effectiveness.
Their Seed to Seal® process guarantees that the oils are 100% safe to use.
They are safe to put on your skin, safe to ingest, and safe to breathe.

One of my favorite ways to use oils is to diffuse different ones throughout the day – they are uplifting and contribute to a relaxing environment.
I have always enjoyed having my home smell nice, but have you ever read the ingredients on a can of air freshener? Yuck!
Can you find out the sources and the method of extraction in obtaining the oils used to scent
those expensive candles everyone loves?
If the oils were extracted using chemical or petroleum solvents,
those substances stay in the oils, and
when you burn the candles, you and your family are breathing them in.
Doesn’t sound very healthy, does it?

I would much rather have the clean scent of Young Living oils diffusing –
they smell fantastic, and I know they are safe for us.

We feel better, and I know we are healthier than we were a few months ago. I am 100% positive that essential oils will forever be a part of our lives – in fact, I can’t imagine living without them now.

So – how can you get these fantastic oils yourself?

You can become a Young Living Member!
I definitely recommend the Wholesale membership, because there are so many benefits to being a wholesale, rather than a retail member.Wholesale or Retail Young Living Membership?

You never have to try and sell anything to anyone!
Just a single order of at least $50 per year keeps your Wholesale Membership active – that is absolutely the only obligation you will ever have*.

In addition to all the benefits Young Living offers,
if you sign up as a Wholesale Member, and order a Premium Starter Kit,
using my link [just click on any photos in this post],
I am going to send you some very special gifts,
that will help you get the best possible start using Young Living Essential Oils.
These will be sent from me, and will arrive separately from your Premium Starter Kit.

[important: my new member gifts are only for those who create their Wholesale Member account and complete the purchase of a Premium Starter Kit in the same calendar month {not just in 30 days – in the same calendar month}, and who have filled in my member# in the enroller and sponsor lines.]

You will also have access to our private Facebook group, Essential Oils for Life where we share how we use our oils, talk about our favorites and help each other find the answers to our questions about what oils work best in each situation. It’s fun, informative, and only for those who sign up for a Wholesale Membership from my site. Young Living is also going to give you access to a ton of info, including their Essential Oils 101 class.

Click here to get started

When you click on the button above, you will be taken to the sign up page on the Young Living website. There, you can choose the kind of membership you prefer, select your country and preferred language. You should see my member ID number already filled in the Enroller and Sponsor boxes – if not, please type it in: 3022485.Choose your membership
From there, you will be filling in your information for shipping, communication and signing in to the site. Make sure you keep track of your User Name, Password and PIN number – you will definitely be needing them again.

You will choose if you are signing up as an individual or as a business, and for the overwhelming majority of people, that will be as an individual. You will be asked for your Social Security number, because if you decide to turn this into a business and make over $600 a year, Young Living will be sending you a report in the mail, and they need your SS# for that. The site is completely secure, and the number will never be shared or used for any other purpose, but if you prefer, you can get a EIN number from the IRS in just a couple minutes – do that by clicking here during normal business hours. The IRS requires YL to have a number on file for you, just in case you do make an income – if you make no income, it will never be used for anything.

On the next page you will choose your kit, and again I think the Premium Starter kits are just an amazing value – there are several different diffusers that you can choose, with prices that vary. The Dewdrop diffuser, in the photo above is the most popular, but maybe there is one that you think you will like more – just choose the kit with the diffuser that you want.

You can skip over the Essential Rewards for now, if you like – I will be happy to explain that in more detail later, and you can get signed up for that any time you want to.

Then, proceed to the check out, and make sure that once you have everything filled out that you click to confirm your order. The confirmation will log you out, and you will need to log back in and confirm your payment info – this is for security, and you want to make sure you go all the way through it, because otherwise your order will not be complete.

And then you are done! Congratulations and welcome to the amazing and rewarding world of essential oils!

Please fill out this form ~CLICK HERE~ and I will be in touch with you very soon, and you can ask me any question you might have – you can even email me anytime you have a question – before or after you get signed up, here: donalyn.ketchum@gmail.com
