Back in 2014, I had no idea what awaited me. I was leaving teaching after 30 years and was looking forward to sleeping past 4:30 a.m., relaxing, traveling, enjoying grandchildren, and writing. I had actually already written a book that needed some further editing, and I was hoping to find a way to get it published. And then, OILS!
A good friend of mine introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils, linked her arm in mine, and escorted me into a new business! I was interested but tentative. My reservations about starting a new business didn’t last long. First of all, I love the essential oils. I had always been sensitive to smells—cleaning products, hair sprays, candles, and so many things. Now I had a diffuser which dispersed beautiful aromas into my home without causing sensitivity issues. And the bonus is aromatic benefits. Second, the business aspect grew very quickly. My family fell in love with the oils and the health benefits. Soon friends and extended family were involved, and I haven’t looked back.
Additionally, this business has expanded my horizons, given me an outlet for writing, taught me many new things, and blessed me with many new friends. Though the financial benefits are there, I believe the health benefits are even more rewarding. I have purged my home of many chemicals by replacing cleaning products, skin products, food products, and daily supplements. I live a much more conscious healthy lifestyle because I have been educated.
Essential oil use needs to accompany other healthy lifestyle choices. My goal when I started was to focus on my health, and I have found essential oils helpful as I increase my exercise routine, improve my eating habits, get an adequate amount of sleep, and reduce the stressors in my life. For me, this business is about partnering with those who are on a journey to better health and looking for a cheerleader to come along side to provide education and support.
This week, Young Living upgraded their popular Premium Starter Kit. I’m excited about it because they have re-introduced two popular essential oil blends to the kit. It now includes 12 essential oils, a diffuser, samples of their popular antioxidant boosting drink, Thieves Household cleaner, and more. With one collection, you can begin your own journey to transforming your home and your health and decrease your exposure to harmful products.
I believe people have an increased awareness of the benefits of choosing a healthy lifestyle. Not only do healthy choices increase your longevity, but also your quality of life, your energy, and your outlook. Health products abound in today’s market, but I believe I have chosen the best ones. If you have never explored Young Living’s Seed to Seal promise or essential oils, I’d love to share with you what I have discovered on my journey. Whatever your choices, make them for your health.
