I had seen a lot of pins on Pinterest about Young Living Essential oils but never gave it that much attention as I did not think it was available in the Netherlands. Until one of my bff’s Corinne shared some of her personal experiences on Facebook in March 2014, to be honest they blew me away.
I’ve always tried to choose a more natural option for our family, avoiding as much chemicals as possible but there was just so much out there I relied on the advice I got in stores but it was never based on a personal experience with the product. I had also incorporated the oil cleansing method in our beauty routine and love wat it was doing our skin so I knew that oils were powerful so my interest was sparked when I heard they could do so much more.
After going through a termination procedure in May/June I was extremely fatigued (I had always been a light sleeper with lots of nightmares but it had taken on extremes), had a continuous headace because of tension in my shoulders/neck and had a misty head.
As my bestie she knew I had already been going through a long period of tension because of my husbands unemployment since (January 2013) and my stepdad’s illness (of which he unfortunately lost his battle after 3 years and said goodbye to us in October 2015). She asked me to trust her, stop hesitating and buy myself a Premium Starter Kit as they contained a lot of oils that would help me get it back together and I would love the other oils for my OCM routine or in the diffuser as I loved using oils in a resin burner.
I was unsure, it was quite an investment but I knew she would not get me to buy something above budget that would be a waste of our money. So in the mindset of if you don’t try it you won’t know I ordered one, and it looked like this.
When the kit came in I loved the diffuser, it was cute and worked like a charm ! I looked up all kinds of combinations to diffuse with dry cold steam and it made me soooo happy. This smelled so much fresher than burning oils with a candle, scented candles or the horrible incense that my husband loved to burn.
I was especially pleased that you could use the oils to set & lift moods for whomever was in the room. The first oils I diffused were stress away during the day and Peace & Calming during the night. Because I noticed such a difference in 2 days (I felt more relaxed, slept deeper & calmer during the night, stopped making sounds like a sawing machine and found I stopped jaw clenching and grinding my teeth yay as I had almost destroyed a moulder with that) I tried Peace & Calming on my youngest dude Colin and he slept so much more peaceful, we didn’t hear his bed banging against the walls (seriously we had to put padding between the wall and his bed it was so bad, when he was a baby we tried everything under the moon like baby binding, relaxing massages and Bach therapie but all only worked for a short period). After 4 days I began to get more energy than before and started to smile again. Colin stated after 2 days “mom I am sleeping so much better” and my husband had also noticed that it was so quiet in his room.
For everything that we would normally “need” a store bought remedy for I would first look up if there was an oil for that, and you know there was ! Like warts on feet, my snoring, acne you name it I had a natural option for relief with 100% natural essential oils.
Besides the oils I had in the kit I started using other oils as Young Living has so many, I ordered Endoflex that supports the Adrenal glands as a lot of women of my age could use a boost for that (seriously google what those glands do or not do, I did!) After a few weeks I started noticing a difference and combined with Progessence Phyto Plus (an oil I cannot live without) it helped me get back into a monthly balance and took down the witch in me among other things (Ladies you know what I mean right 😉 )!
All in all the life of my family and mine has changed so much for the better since I took the plunge and ordered these Young Living Products. I got rid of all the other regular drugstore products that we had, we use the oils and supplements for anything and everything and rarely need to go to the doctor (obviously if it’s serious we do visit the doctor for advise but if it can be relieved with help of the oils we choose to go that route) nor do we have to stay in bed to recover from things going around in any season.
Since we have had such good experiences I could not help sharing them on social media and through this blogpost. I have introduced many a friend and family members to the Young Living and all have been so grateful and didn’t hesitate one bit to trust me that they would love using these oils daily in their lives.
Because that’s what you do share awesome experiences with them whether it be a great recipe, good book, great movie of restaurant. Sharing this love one drop at a time, sharing welness, purpose and abundance because I truly believe every household should experience nature’s best in their lives…
