Our family has had many years of ups and downs with lots of medical issues. I have suffered from thyroid problems for over 20 years, JR has developed allergies and many aches and pains over the years and our daughter has had over 2 years of unexplained pain and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at age 14. We have been to doctor after doctor to try to figure out how best to treat all of us. We have been called crazy (not in a good way), we have been told we were imagining things or that we were making things up. We accumulated bags of medicines that just never worked or had tons of side effects. Finally, when we had had enough and knew we were going to have to take things into our own hands, we started looking for natural approaches to help manage our conditions.
Anyone who has battled staying or becoming healthy knows that it is a lifelong journey. We have developed these conditions over time and it's going to take the time to straighten our bodies out and feel healthy again.
Nothing's Working….. Let's Try Natural or Holistic Options
Our daughter was in the worse situation and I was desperately trying to find ways to help her. I took her to specialist after specialist and we only saw temporary results and lots of side effects. We then discovered an inpatient program at Cincinnati Children's that helped her start looking at managing her pain without medications. She found music and art therapy helped the best and then after being home a while she wanted to try cupping and massage and through her massage therapist and a few family members, we discovered the benefits of essential oils.
After several months of using the oils for everything from pain to stress, we were hooked. It has taken a lot of studying and a lot of experimenting with different combinations of oils for different situations but we are finally building our toolkit of ways to help our family naturally. We plan to share our experiences as part of our journey here and hopefully help you more easily care for your family.
Joining the Movement
After seeing the results our daughter was having I decided it was time to be a part of the movement to live a more natural and healthy lifestyle. Reduce the number of chemicals and dangerous products coming into our lives and build a better future for our family. I have come to believe that it is important to take your health into your own hands and because we loved what the Young Living Company stands for and how they run their business, we became independent distributors for Young Living.
We are excited to be able to help people the way we have been helped! We want to find ways to integrate essential oils into your daily lives the way we have. We are still learning new ways every day to make them part of our routines and look forward to sharing this journey together! If you are interested in becoming a part of our team or just learning a how they can help you and your family, we would love to work with you. There are easy ways to purchase oils right from Young Living or you can contact us to have us order it for you. You even have the option of saving a ton of money on your oils by signing up for the wholesale program. Don't worry, it's easy and we can explain it all to you.
A lot of people worry that they are getting drug into a pyramid scam or that we are going to pressure you to have parties or con your friends into buying stuff. You really do not have anything to worry about.
Yes, if you want to educate your friends and family or get involved in making extra income with Young Living's business opportunities, we can show you how. It's all extremely legitimate and upfront. They are a really awesome company to purchase from or work with. The products are some of the best in the world and are the healthiest for your family. You will never have to worry about your oils being watered down or not processed correctly. In the middle of the night when you grab an oil to apply it to your sick child, you will know that it is the safest purest quality essential oil you can get.
My Experiences with Essential Oils
I choose to go with Young Living essential oils after a bit of research. I'd decided that I didn't want to use the cheaper oils I could find at health food stores or online, simply because I'd read too much about impurities and lower grade oils not being recommended for topical use. After learning about Young Living's process of making their oils, which starts with owning all the farms that grow their plants, owning & running the distilleries that distill the oils, and the testing they do to ensure that each batch of oils is pure and up to snuff, I decided I felt comfortable going with them. They're more expensive than health food store oils, but in my mind, you get what you pay for and even my daughter who is sensitive to everything, has had no issues with any of the Young Living oils.
Since I wanted to really dive into essential oils rather than just sticking my toe in, I decided to get their Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 11 of the most used oils and a home diffuser. The diffuser and oils purchased separately would be over $260 at the retail price, but the starter kit is only $160, so it is a really great way to get started. Besides all the oils and samples, the best thing about getting the kit was that I got to become a Young Living member, which means I get 24% off the retail prices of any oils I purchase from then on (sorta like being a Costco or Sam's member)!
