YOUR AWESOME GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL OILS

GUYS! I have to tell you that I’ve stumbled upon a brand that I’ve fallen in love with: YOUNG LIVING.

You know that I love ESSENTIAL OILS. I’m obsessed with finding ways to swap out harsh chemicals with essential oils & you should be too. They are also great for changing your mood. Mood is so important, in my opinion. A warm cup of tea and some oils diffusing in the background really sets the scene after work.

SO! Let me give you a breakdown some of my favorite oils and show you how I use them. Once you commit to oils, you will never go back! I have never found something so beneficial and reasonably priced that actually worked and not kidding, CHANGED my life!

Personally, my favorite oil is Frankincense; they call it the “King of all Oils.” It pretty much does everything. If I am  worrying about something, I diffuse some Frankincense. Frankincense is also great for the skin. It reduces wrinkles, fights depression, it’s a stress reliever, fights respiratory infections/colds, it’s anti-inflammatory, a muscle relaxer and so much more!

NEXT, THIEVES.

Ever since we started using this oil, our sickness has gone down. I diffuse it, or rub it (with a carrier) on the kid’s feet. Not only do I use Thieves oil, but also the cleaner, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, and every other Thieves product Young Living makes because it kills all bacteria, fights disease, and strengthens the immune system.

And, it smells awesome!

SPEAKING OF HOUSE CLEANERS, LET ME TELL YOU MORE…

I am totally obsessed with using chemical-free cleaners in my home. I have some other natural cleaners that I just have leftover, but I only have to use ONE cleaner ( Thieves ) in our home, on everything: toilets, windows, showers, dishes…the list goes on. I never used to believe that there was a cleaner strong enough to do all. I feared I still needed to use bleach for some cleanings, but to my surprise it actually works BETTER! And with no side effects!

LET ME TELL YOU WHAT ELSE CAN OILS DO

Essential oils can be found in the blood stream less than ten minutes after applying them to your skin. They are the only thing on the planet that can enter every cell in your body. When you smell the oil, it sends a signal to your limbic system in your brain, which rule your emotions ( also, blood pressure, heart rate, memory, stress and hormone balance ) to a sense of peace, joy and contentment.

WHICH OIL IS MY FAVORITE AND WHY?

I would say peppermint essential oil. This oil is amazing because when you are suffering from bloating, cramps, gas, constipation, etc., it’s so necessary to have something that’s natural & fast acting. You can also use it for joint pain, headaches, mice repellent, and a great smelling scent for the house. Works like a charm! Try it!

CAN OILS HELP WITH ANXIETY?

Absolutely; Last year, I started suffering from anxiety and depression and oils have changed the game for me.  The best oils for anxiety are, Frankincense, Clary Sage, Lavender, and Bergamot. Young Living makes some great blends, called Stress Away or Peace and Calming 2 that will save you money as well.

WHAT KINDS OF OILS ARE THE BEST TO BUY?

Young Living because they are the purest on the market. They are a seed to seal company which means they are distilled right there at the factory/farm & transferred directly into the bottle. Young Living controls the whole process and owns all their own farms worldwide, so there is no middle man or grey area, it is very simple and honest. I have tried many different companies (I still have a drawer full of oils) and I didn’t know that a lot of companies really dilute their oils and may come from questionable sources. (NEVER buy your oils from Amazon!) You could be diffusing/using chemicals and jeopardizing your health, which is why I stick with Young Living because I know they are all pure- you get what you pay for, quality.

WHY DO PEOPLE NEED OILS IN THEIR LIFE?

Oils can replace any medication,  cleaning product, beauty products, etc. Practically everything we purchase at stores or on a daily basis can have cancer causing chemicals in them. If you want to live a clean life and have pure products in your home and around your family, then oils are the way to go. A plus is you can actually save money too. Making your own products is easy once you get the hang of it. Young Living has a booklet to teach you to make homemade baby wipes, deodorant, shower gel, dish soap and more.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know everything you put on your body and loved ones?

Oils are incredible. I love using them for my emotion health to set the mood of my day. They truly have saved my life!
