I’ve been wanting to share about why I love Young Living so much but waiting for the right time to do it. I have so much passion for what I do and for the company itself, so I needed it to be the right time for me to communicate the message.
I’m going to do my best. 🙂
We are on a family ski trip in Colorado right now. It has been so much fun. We have some friends who are also here on vacation and staying about an hour away, so we met up with them for breakfast this morning. Our friends spent all day on the slopes yesterday and their 10 year old daughter got a terrible sunburn. Obviously, the sun is super intense up here in the mountains and she was very red and swollen this morning. Of course, her misery made my friend feel terrible. 😦 As Moms, we take on every pain our children feel and it was hurting her to see her daughter suffering so much.
We talked about a few remedies and possible things that might help her. I told her if I had some Lavender oil, I would give it to her, because it’s amazing for anything skin related, including burns, rashes, bites etc. Well, I looked in my purse, just to make sure I didn’t have any and sure enough, I did! I really didn’t think I did so that was an awesome surprise. She immediately took her to the restroom and applied the Lavender to her swollen face. About 10 minutes later, her daughter came over to sit at our table and I SWEAR to you, her burn looked better. Like noticeably better. I thought I was just imagining it… but then my friend, who by the way is not an avid oiler, said…”I think that is already looking better! That’s crazy.” I told her I agreed and we both just kind of sat there in awe at how quickly it helped her. I use oils every single day and even I was in shock about this.
Naturally, I gave her the bottle and told her to keep applying it often for the rest of the day. I’m telling you… she looked SO much better by the time we left. THIS is why I’m so passionate about Young Living. They offer a very high quality product that I stand behind, because it works. Without a shadow of a doubt, I can tell you that we benefit SO much from using their essential oils. I have used oils from Whole Foods and they are just not the same. We avoid so many unnecessary medications and doctor’s visits, because we have something that helps us just as much. I will absolutely take my kids to the doctor if we need to and I will give them a medication if they need it. But honestly, most of the time, they don’t. We don’t need much more. We know how to use our oils to support and strengthen our bodies, without the aid of anything else.
I see people have these experiences all the time. I get texts and messages constantly from people who have benefitted from an oil. And I’m always shocked and so so grateful that we have something so natural to take care of ourselves. Would my friend’s daughter heal without the oil? Eventually, yes, of course. But will she heal faster and experience less pain because of the Lavender? 100% yes.
Essential oils benefit people. It’s just a fact. In fact, the use of essential oils goes back thousands of years. This is nothing new. But as a culture, we have shifted so much in how we treat our ailments. We mostly rely on modern medicine because it’s convenient and a quick fix.. and I get it. But most pharmaceuticals are manufactured in a laboratory to mimic the properties that the plants themselves offer. So why wouldn’t I just go directly to the source itself? It only makes sense. The earth gives us so much of what we need… we just need to take advantage of it and learn to trust it more.
I could write a book about all of my experiences that have truly made me the believer I am today. I was once skeptical and relied on medications more than natural alternatives. I’ve been down both roads and I can tell you, this one is better, honestly. I feel so empowered as a Mother, when I can turn to an oil to help my kids instead of running to the doctor or grabbing a drug with side effects. I’m very thankful!
