Essential Oils

Hi Friends! Welcome to my Essential Oil area. As I share our daily lives, I can't leave out the different ways we take care of ourselves. One of our favorite ways to support and nurture bodies and emotions is through essential oils. I started essential oils as a form of aromatherapy and and as the next step in my wellness journey and the benefits have gone far beyond anything I ever imagined. We use essential oils and oil-infused products for emotional support, we use them to boost our immune systems, to relieve pain, and I’ve even switched out most of our normal household items with natural ones available from Young Living. I've switched out things like our spray cleaners, laundry detergent, and even our personal care items like soap, hand-sanitizer, shampoo, deodorant - even makeup! 

What You Might Be Wondering:

  • Why Young Living and not the cheaper ones from Amazon? Young Living is the world leader in the essential oils movement and what they say is true: not all oils are created equally.  With Young Living's Seed to Seal standards you can be assured that your family is using the highest quality product without ANY dilution or chemical additives. This is really important because you are breathing in these oils on a daily basis. Also, think of the essential oil as the immune system of the plant - it supports the growth and life of the plant from seed to flower and what we are getting is the distilled oil to use for our benefit. For more information read here.

  • Okay, I want the oils, what do I do from here? If you’d like to get involved with oils, it’s best to set up your account with Young Living and purchase the starter kit. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO "SELL" OILS OR PURCHASE MONTHLY AS A MEMBER. It just means you are getting a starter kit for more than 50% off and you will get 24% off retail prices on every oil, forever (totally worth it!). SO to sign up, ORDER HERE - choose the Member option, and make sure the number 1810875 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields.

  • How will I know what to do with my oils once I get them? With your starter get, you’ll get plenty of learning materials including an encyclopedia of all of Young Living's products and the most frequent uses of the oils. You’ll also be invited to a private wellness group on facebook and can follow along with me on my journey of discovering essential oils on my instagram @journeyofinches! I also send welcome kits right from my home to each person who signs up with me, and that includes all the ways you can learn form me!

  • What should I get? I recommend starting with the Premium Starter Kit (just like I did).  This will give you 11 of the most common oils and a diffuser (there are two standard diffuser models to choose from for free with purchase or you can upgrade to others available on the site for a small upcharge).  The best part — the starter kit gives you about $360 worth of essential oils and oil-infused products for only $160!! From there you can always add more, but the Premium Starter Kit is the perfect way to jump in and start learning!

  • I think I’d like to sell oils with you… Awesome!! When you sign up, you’ll get an email from me that contains all that information too. While you are NEVER required to sell, when you set up your account with Young Living, you automatically have the business opportunity at no cost to you, so you'll always have the Young Living business opportunity in your back pocket should you want it.
