Happy Tuesday, my friends! I want to start off this week by taking a step back and talking about something personal – why I chose Young Living Essential Oils. Charlotte and I realized a few weeks ago that we have talked about why you should choose Young Living essential oils, but never why we chose it. So I am going to take a little time and tell you my “why”.
Honestly, it began with my nose. I’m not sure I could say I have a powerful sense of smell, but my sense of smell has never gone unused. In fact, I LOVE to smell stuff! Weird stuff, and yes, even the gross stuff. 😛 It’s just one of those strange things about me that other people will never be able to understand – my family included. 😉
It wouldn’t surprise you to know, then, that when Mom’s Premium Starter Kit arrived, all I cared about was how the oils SMELLED. We’ve used other brands of essential oils in the past, and they all smelled nice. However, I knew that Young Living was going to be different. I knew they were going to smell different, and I was so ready to open up a bottle and experience that difference.
Peppermint wasn’t the first oil we opened, but it was the most memorable. Snap went the seal, and then we each took a whiff. My first reaction was a deep sigh, and then a chuckle, and then my eyes practically dilated with wonder. Any peppermint oil is a wow-maker, that’s a fact. Up until our Premium Starter Kit came, we had been using the NOW brand. It was pretty nice, but now that we had Young Living’s oil in hand…
You can Smell the Difference
Excitedly, I ran to get the NOW peppermint oil so I could smell them side by side. I was floored. We all were. There was no doubt about it – for the first time, I could smell the difference. NOW actually smelled off – it smelled like there was something else in there besides peppermint. Young Living’s peppermint was true, honest-to-goodness peppermint. Just like the plant, only several times more potent.
There are just no two ways about this, people. If you haven’t smelled a bottle of Young Living peppermint essential oil, you have to. It’s unbelievable! The scent is so refreshing and potent!
That was the game-changer moment right there. I was sold. This was the real thing. And as we continued to open up the bottles and smell Lavender, Thieves, and Stress Away, the smile kept growing on my face. After we were through, I smiled the whole rest of the day. We didn’t just have essential oils, the Lord had sent us a gift.
Freedom from Toxins = Freedom in Life
My “why” has nothing to do with a brand name. It has nothing to do with how prestigious the company is. It has nothing to do with popularity or exhilaration of following a trend/fad. In fact, I am the last person who would ever consider those things. My “why” literally stands for freedom.
- Stop wondering if a product contains harmful ingredients.
- Have vibrant health.
- Stop following the modern American lifestyle (one which is honestly chock full of harmful chemicals and health hazards).
- Care for my female body with products that will build rather than tear down.
- Freedom for my future children to develop in a healthy womb.
- Make a difference in other people’s lives.
After studying the vintage eras with my sisters for so long, I look around me today and can see the difference between generations. Friends, more than one-third (35.7%) of adults are considered to be obese. More than 1 in 20 (6.3%) have extreme obesity. Almost 3 in 4 men (74%) are considered to be overweight or obese.
I’m not leaving the problem on the scale, either. People now, more than ever, deal with cancer, diabetes, chronic pain, sleeplessness, and so much more. But it doesn’t have to stay this way! That is the good news! We can say NO to the toxic food we’re eating. We can say NO to the toxins we’re using on ourselves and in our homes. We can change these statistics by three simple word – no more toxins!
We’re doing this Together!
Founder Gary Young’s vision for Young Living is to touch every single life not just in the US, but in the world. How? By encouraging us to use beautiful, simple, wholesome ingredients that make up potent products to replace the toxic ones we’ve been using for too long. It doesn’t take that long to detox your home or your body! You just need to say no and give wholesomeness a chance once more.
You and I – we will never live in a perfect world, or a life apart from the curse. That is impossible. However, we can use the good gifts God has richly blessed us within this life to live better than we are now. He wants us to live to the best of our abilities! Why not take that opportunity? Let’s shout to the world for “freedom!” We’ll do it together, and together, we can bring change for the better!
That is my “why.”
