Where Do You Buy Your Oils?
You can pretty much walk into any store and find essential oils now. The thing is…you don’t know what is actually in the bottle you are buying. They may smell good, but they can have harmful fillers, synthetic chemicals added, they may use high heat or high pressure when they remove the essential oils from the plants or a variety of other things that would make me NOT want to put that product on my skin or in my body. In fact, many of these products will have a “do not ingest” or “not for topical use” on the bottle.
Then there are essential oils that come directly from the plants, that are extracted with LOW heat and LOW pressure so that the oils are not damaged, that do not have harmful chemicals added during the extraction process, that are grown in the right soil in the right conditions, and that are thoroughly tested for their therapeutic qualities.
Those are the oils that actually can benefit my family’s health and wellness. I prefer quality, straight from the source essential oils. I always find it funny when people think of essential oils as a “new age” trend when you can read about essential oils throughout the Bible!
HOW I USE MY ESSENTIAL OILS
I started using essential oils in the Spring of 2015 and have been using essential oils, and essential oil infused products DAILY since then. And our family has never been healthier.
Essential oils can help with things like:
• A restful night’s sleep
• Arthritis pain
• Digestive support
• Weight loss
• Minor muscle and joint aches
• Support for the respiratory system
• Bruises and sprains
• Coughs & Sore Throats
• Supporting a healthy immune system (AND our kids!)
• Support for healthy blood pressure and healthy blood sugar (already in a healthy range)
• Cognitive support and focus
• Supporting normal cellular growth
• And SO MUCH more!
If you are interested in getting started with essential oils for your family, you have a couple of options.
Option 1 (MY RECOMMENDATION):
You can choose to get a SUBSCRIPTION BOX sent right to your door, from a company I have come to LOVE called SIMPLY EARTH. They are NOT an MLM company at all – you simply buy the individual oils you want from their site OR choose their Subscription Box and get all kinds of FREE GOODIES! They are super affordable too! Make sure to read my review before your order! Use code “JSHFREE” to get an additional $40 coupon!
You can get started as a Young Living wholesale member and get one of the Premium Starter Kits. The starter kit has the essential oils that EVERYONE needs in their home!
Also, when you are a wholesale member then you get access to our exclusive FUN Facebook group to help you in your essential oils journey!
When I got started, I bought the Premium Starter Kit, and I’m so glad that I did! That is your best bang for your buck!
There is absolutely no obligation to sell anything when you buy a starter kit. You are a wholesale member and get the benefit of a 24% discount for any future products that you decide to buy! You have the option of sharing about the products with others and getting a “Thank You” check from Young Living, but it’s certainly not a requirement.
So, now it is up to you! I know many people choose to use Young Living essential oils for their quality and purity. I started there, too! After I was comfortable researching and educating myself, I felt confident enough to branch out slightly. That’s when I found SIMPLY EARTH. I now order from SIMPLY EARTH more often than anything else! You HANDS DOWN can’t beat their prices and I trust their quality. I also know how many people shy away from MLMs but still want to use quality essential oils. I encourage you to try out their Subscription Box (read my review first!) and see for yourself!
The world of essential oils can be confusing, especially when you first get started, so I’m here to help you and walk with you in your journey. We often chat essential oils in our Intentional Homemakers group and the Almost Crunchy Mama IG. With 7 kids, a home business, pets, a farmhouse, a husband who doesn’t like to stop…I have some experience with what works and what doesn’t!
