New Adventure

Some of you know that last spring my husband lost his job.  And while we wait for God to show us what He has for us next in ministry, He has opened the door for me to begin a new adventure/business in YoungLiving Essential Oils.

I was introduced to essential oils (EOs) by my daughter-in-love. 

Now while I have always been someone willing to try homeopathic remedies for my health, I must admit that I tried EOs mostly to support and get to know her better. :)

I'm so glad I did!!

I was a bit of a skeptic at first, but I have been using YLEOs for almost 9 months now and have been pleased, amazed and thrilled with how they work.  Why is it that we will go to a doctor and take whatever they prescribe to us but when it comes to using something natural that God made, we are skeptical? crazy!!

Why use Essential Oils?

First, it's 100% natural.  No synthetics, additives or fillers. 
Young Living Essential Oils are extracted carefully through steam distillation or through cold pressing. The essential oils have a high potency which can deliver quick and effective results. Becauese Young Living Essential Oils are pure, they are also therapeutic and can be diffused, inhaled, applied topically, incorporated into massage or taken internally.  And unlike most meds, they can be used whenever needed without having to wait a prescribed amount of time.

Why YoungLiving Essential Oils?

Many of us have smelled essential oils or are familiar with the natural or earthy scents that are often in bath and personal care products. But there is a big difference between Young Living Essential Oils and an oil purchased at a health food store or on Amazon. Young Living has always been on the cutting edge at bringing the use of essential oils to millions of people for the last 20 years.  They also provide a deep knowledge of how to use the oils for mind/ body wellness.

So I started my journey with the YoungLiving Starter kit which includes these 10 oils plus 1 more and a diffuser...

With just these 11 oils, I have basically replaced my over the counter medicine cabinet and first aide kit!!  I have not bought Ibuprofen, allergy meds, antacids or any other over the counter medicine for 9 months now.  I like that!

I also suffer from carpal tunnel.  6 months ago I could not type this post to you without a TON of pain and I was ready to see a doctor about surgery.  I researched it and found that lemongrass EO was said to be good for inflammation and carpal tunnel and so I started using it.  at first, I put it on when ever I had pain, so I was applying it several times a day... it is natural so you don't have to worry about how often you use it!  Then within about 3 weeks, I realized all my pain was gone!!  Now I use it every morning...and it smells great, so that is a bonus!!! 

Some testimonials from my friends using EOs...

* got rosecea under control
* killed wart virus, in several friends
* my son's ADD controlled completely by oils
* Anxiety relieved and controlled
* healing of injuries...

 My MIL had a fall recently and she pulled the skin back on her hand.  When I got to see her, her hand looked like the picture on the left.  After TWO days of putting lavender on her hand, it looked like the picture on the right!!

As I became more sold on using EOs, I began telling my friends about them and how they were helping me......and God just opened this door to a business.  I am excited to see what God does with it, but more excited to share these wonderful oils with all my friends!!

If you would like to know more about Essential me!!
 I would love to talk to you about them!

With fall coming on and flu season not too far away....essential oils are a great way to protect and combat against illness!!

I am SO glad, you shared this! My Nick asks me everyday:"when are the oils coming?" We are both so excited! I want to apologize again for getting a little too excited about ordering and I am so glad we were able to change it! ��
I can't wait to see how they work for us, and tell you about it.
Keep blogging about it, it's exciting.
