I’ve seen it so many times before–bloggers lowering their standards or straying away from their authenticity for the sake of money. It’s annoying, saddening, and more often than not triggers the “unfollow” button. When Jessica and I were thinking about this new journey of sharing about essential oils, a key factor for us was to make sure we communicate to you all, our beloved readers, our mentality behind it. I don’t blame you if you saw the launch of our new blog, B. Well, and instantly thought, “Sayonara, Boyer sisters!” because you thought we were just doing it to make money. Well, if that’s you who are reading this, let me tell you a little story.
Keeping our Standards High
As my sisters and I grew in influence in the blogging world, so did the quantity of email our inbox. It seemed like every day we would be inundated with people wanting to use our site to promote their writing skills, products, and more. Over and over we would pass up the opportunity to make a little money because these offers didn’t coincide with our blog vision: to inspire and uplift our audience with authentic, beautiful content. This same quality control has stayed with us everywhere we go on the web, be it Facebook, Instagram, or now our new blog, B. Well. And this same quality control has led us to where we are today in sharing Young Living Essential Oils and a chemical-free lifestyle through this new platform. When God placed this opportunity in our lives, to make a business out of sharing Young Living products, we didn’t think twice about it because for once, everything lined up: quality, beauty, authenticity. It was all there.
Every day, Something New
Every single day (and no, I am not exaggerating) we learn something new about essential oils and the incredible tool that they are to help us build healthy, vibrant lives. The more we are educated, the more we want to share with you all! Our lives have truly been transformed by this incredible gift that God has given us. They aren’t just a dietary supplement or a nice smelling perfume: the versatility of these oils has us floored over and over, the more we learn about them. And the best part? They aren’t some fad, some brilliant new product that will last you a month or two, and then get thrown by the wayside. These oils have been around since the world began and were made to help us live to our full potential, to God’s glory.
Do We Make Money?
Do we make money by sharing about the oils? Yep, and we won’t deny it. In fact, we embrace it (you can too)! We feel so blessed that we get to support ourselves through sharing these incredible products. And this brings me to my point: The money-making part is a major bonus, but the blessing/sharing part is our focus. These oils have supported us emotionally, spiritually, and physically. They’ve switched on our brains to viewing God’s incredible creation in ways that we have never experienced. In short, they have been one of the greatest blessings from our heavenly Father, and we want to share that blessing with you! In fact, it’s almost hard keeping our mouths shut about them! We simply want you to have these oils because we know that they will build you up in ways that you can’t imagine.
Ok, so did that clear everything up? 😉 Our goal with this site is to help you realize just how achievable this lifestyle switch is, and how it can be done without breaking the bank. Are we rolling in the dough? Heck no! I sometimes feel that because we wear pretty clothes and present high-quality content, it gives the impression that we’ve got life easy. Ready for a reality check? We don’t. We’ve been through a lot financially, and are anything but at ease when it comes to our wallets. However, that hasn’t stopped us from being blessed by essential oils. We want to share with you how we were able to make the switch in our limited circumstances, and how it is SO totally achievable for you to as well!
