WHAT?! WHY?!

STARTING WITH WHY…

Did you know that whatever you put into or on your body reaches your blood supply – and then the most important systems of your body! – within 26 seconds?! 26 SECONDS. YES, you read that right, 26 SECONDS. Researchers say that what you put on your skin effects your more than what you put inside your mouth! Yikes! Yuck!!!

Most chemicals are toxic substances that destroy your immune system and disrupt your endocrine system. This can lead to heart disease or cancer, but more often comes into your life in the form of stress, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, lethargy, obesity, migraines, hair loss, emotional instability – the nasty list goes on and on. All the things you really DON’T want in your life. I would go so far as to blame the current epidemic of chronic illness on our use of dangerous chemicals in the home!

The 10 most common household chemicals include candles, bleach, cleaning sprays, toiletries, make up, dishwasher soap. Most people come in contact with over 300 dangerous chemicals per day, and most women use 80 harmful chemicals before breakfast!

It’s okay to panic.

Okay, now, breathe. You can stop this. You are the gateway of your household, and you control what comes within your door. You can’t control most chemicals you meet outside – but you can control the ones inside your home!

Enter: Young Living essential oils.

UMM, WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS? Essential oils are highly concentrated compounds that are derived directly from plants and carry the healing and therapeutic powers of plants. They are the essences of plants derived from the seeds, roots, stems, flowers, and bark, through the process of distilling.

They are comprised of tiny molecules that your body absorbs through the skin or nose. They reach your bloodstream within 26 seconds (!) and travel up to your pituitary gland and all the systems of your body to interact in wonderful ways.

Okay, out of ALL the brands out there, WHY YL?? It’s a fair question! What I’ve found is: you don’t know what you don’t know. Til you learn it.

If an essential oil makes contact with a harmful chemical at any point in the life of the plant, or oil, the integrity is compromised. Your body will feel this in harmful ways, and all the damaging power of the chemicals will be transferred into your blood and the systems of your body.

There is no bar for the quality of essential oils, and even name-brand products cut down on costs of production. I have felt this in my body. Only Young Living has this guarantee that their products are never exposed to chemicals – and I’ve totally felt this life-giving power in my body as well.

The process of creating a perfect and pure product is a journey that takes place in farms across the globe, soil that has never been touched by pesticides. Young Living has a Seed to Seal guarantee: that is the difference!

And, THE BEST PART OF YL?! (maybe, there are a lot of best parts!!) It’s your one-stop shop for chemical free, plant based essentials! no more running to the store when you are out of detergent or dish soap. You can order all your toiletries, supplements, make up, and cleaning supplies from Young Living! and let me tell you, that foaming hand wash is PURE LUXURY.

(Pro tip?! All of this is highly concentrated - they never charge you shipping for empty water weight! I split all my goods by three - generally, I subtract 2/3 of the content of my bottles of dish soap, laundry soap, etc., and fill the rest with water. 1/3 of the content is a solid bottle of goods! My bottles go three times as far. LOVE IT.)

Okay, you got me: where can I start?!?

Time to clean out your cabinets, get rid of your chems, and start a different future for your body, and a different future for Jack and his generation.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Essential oils are highly concentrated compounds that are derived directly from plants and carry the healing and therapeutic powers of plants. They are the essences of plants derived from the seeds, roots, stems, flowers, and bark, through the process of distilling.

They are comprised of tiny molecules that your body absorbs through the skin or nose. They reach your bloodstream within 26 seconds (!) and travel up to your pituitary gland and then into all the systems of your body to interact in marvelous ways.

When I first looked into this, I was shocked to find that substances that touch your skin enter your bloodstream faster than if they enter your mouth. I’ve always thought that it’s okay if you touch things as long as you don’t eat them - and comforted myself with that thought for my toddler! (Gag.) Not so.

If an essential oil makes contact with a harmful chemical at any point in the life of the plant, or oil, the integrity is compromised. Your body will feel this in harmful ways, and all the damaging power of the chemicals will be transferred into your blood and the systems of your body.

Almost every brand of oils - yes, all the mainstream ones! - adds additives and fillers. Of course, this isn’t going to be healing for your body – it will only be another harmful hormonal nightmare, and these oils will do more harm than good. I tried them over the years, and never felt compelled to share about them… until… I used Young Living oils.

Young Living is the ONLY brand of essential oils that has a guarantee that their oils are never touched by harmful chemicals. They source fields all over the world that are untouched by pesticides to grow their plants!

The process of creating a perfect and pure product is a long and costly journey. Jasmine has to be picked at a certain time of day; a sandalwood tree has to be grown for 30+ years before it is at its peak; a 5 ml bottle of rose oil takes 22 lbs of rose petals to produce! Young Living has 30+ years of research and a team of chemists and farmers who are constantly working to ensure that the product that reaches you is completely pure. A single bottle of oil has to pass 90 tests before it is considered perfect!

This is why we trust these oils for our family. Your body will FEEL the vibrant strength of this life-giving difference.
