Young Living Essential Oils

I have a fantastic resource to share with you, and it is one of my favorite ways to stay healthy and happy: Young Living Essential Oils.

2012_4 My First Young Living KitThe kit plus other oils I purchased in April 2012. Notice there is NO Joy and NO diffuser. I paid the same price for mine as new members do now. You are getting a much better deal!

You’ve heard a lot about my natural living journey. For the last six years, I have been unable to tolerate smells, aromas, and odors. We cannot use most detergents, and fabric softeners, commercial cleaners, and scented products of any kind are out. The lovely side-effects you see on most products? Yeah, I get those. That leaves me with very few options for cleaning, smell-goods, and wellness. I used essential oils for a few years, but honestly could not really stand the smell, but since they were natural, I kept using them. That is what happens when your options are limited!


First of all, what are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. These oils (also known as nature’s living energy) contain unique constituents that provide therapeutic benefits and results. The essential oils I use and recommend are Young Living, and there are three ways to experience their amazing, health-promoting benefits: inhalation, topical application, and internal consumption as dietary supplements (or even food flavorings).

What is Young Living?

Young Living has been in business for over 20 years. Their mission is to take YL oils to every home in the world and help everyone achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle. Young Living is the only essential oil company that owns their own farms. These farms are in the United States, France, Ecuador, Oman, Israel, and Taiwan. Their farms are open for anyone to visit, participate in the harvesting of the plants, and the distillation of the essential oils {which I find to be pretty darn cool!}.

YL uses a low-temperature, low-pressure steam distillation process that ensures the beneficial plant compounds in every batch remain uncompromised during the extraction process. Young Living uses only first distillation essential oils. Think of it like coffee or tea; the first brew tastes great, right?  What if you kept using those same grounds or tea leaves for your next several brews. Would it taste as strong? Would it be as good as the first batch? That’s how it is with Young Living: they only use the first “brew” (distillation), so their oils are top-notch, top-quality, and not watered down, even a little. {Thanks for this analogy, Myra!} Less expensive brands of oils use 2nd-4th distillation. After the oils are distilled, each batch goes through hard-core testing, by both their internal labs and a third-party.


Young Living Premium Starter Kit

There are several ways to join with a wholesale membership:

{Basic Starter Kit} $40

When you purchase the Basic Starter Kit, you will receive 10 YL oil sample packets {2 each of Lavender, Lemon, Peace & Calming, Peppermint, and Thieves}, a 5 ml bottle of Citrus Fresh essential oil blend, 2 NingXia Red samples, AromaGlide roller fitment, and information about Young Living’s essential oils, plus your lifetime wholesale membership. This is all you need to get started as a wholesale member with Young Living.

{Basic Plus Starter Kit} $75

Another option is to purchase the Basic Plus Starter Kit, which saves you 35%, as compared to purchasing the Basic Kit. This kit comes with everything in the Basic Kit, plus a FREE home diffuser!

{Premium Starter Kit} $150

The third option is to purchase the Premium Starter Kit, which gives you a 37% discount, and is honestly the kit with the best value. This kit comes with everything in the Basic Kit, the free home diffuser, AND the Everyday Oils Kit. In this kit you will receive 10 of Young Living’s most popular essential oils which have a multitude of uses: Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, Thieves blend, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree), PanAway, Purification blend, Stress Away blend, and Joy blend. Each bottle contains 85-100 drops of oil so this collection gets you around 900 drops. A typical application is 1-4 drops so they will last you awhile.


{Premium Starter Kit} $160

This Premium Starter Kit has everything that comes in the Basic Kit, the 10 Everyday Oils listed above in the other Premium Starter Kit, but has the stylish Aroma Diffuser instead of the Home Diffuser. Please note that this starter kit is $10 more. This diffuser is worth a little more than the other one, but both diffusers are really nice.
