My journey to better health started way back in 2003. Long story short, our youngest daughter, at the time (now she’s the middle one!), was experiencing effects from a round of vaccinations. I won’t get into all that here, as I have already done so in another post, but we started going to an Anthroposophical Naturopathic Dr in a nearby town. She began teaching me about natural means of health & healing. Thus began our journey.
We began an organic lifestyle with organic diet, plenty of herbal teas, supplements, etc., fresh air & sunshine, gardening, etc., etc. I guess you could say we “went green”.
I began preparing herbal remedies a few years ago. I took courses on herbs, how to best prepare them, and how to use them. I always felt like the essential oil craze was just that, a craze. I mean, please, I GROW THESE PLANTS and excuse me, but I KNOW HOW TO PREP THEM. I was definitely a skeptic.
I purchased a few oils at our local health food store and wasn’t very impressed. I didn’t notice a thing. They smelled odd, just plain weird. We didn’t get any benefits that I could tell. I used some eucalyptus in a candle diffuser and nearly gagged us all to death! My husband HATED it. I made up my mind that essential oils were not worth bothering with – until late 2014.
Over the past year or so I saw many posts from Young Living reps and I knew that Young Living’s oils were much more pure than the ones I had purchased at the Co-op, but little did I know what a difference I would find.
I finally decided enough was enough, I had to find out more about these oils and clicked on one of the links. I read and read and read and my eyes were completely opened to not only the incredible purity of these oils but the business opportunity. I jumped in with both feet and bought the Premium Starter Kit and haven’t looked back yet. I joined an incredibly supportive and knowledgeable team of ladies that are committed to our success with these oils. You’ll be added to this same team should you order a Premium Starter Kit too! 😀
When our very first package arrived, I could SMELL THE OILS right through the box!! I couldn’t WAIT to open it. All three girls and I gathered around the box and started opening it. I could smell a certain scent that I just HAD to discover which bottle it came from – we started opening bottles and INHALING DEEPLY… ahhhhh!!! The lavender smelled like walking into a beautiful field full of lush lavender plants! The peppermint aroma filled the entire room! Thieves brought such a warming cloves scent! But it was VALOR, VALOR that I was searching for! Valor became my new friend. I rub a drop or two on the bottom of each foot before I go to bed.
“But how do you USE THEM?” you might be asking. We diffuse them in our home diffuser (comes with the Premium Starter Kit), apply directly to the bottom of our feet, some oils we apply directly to the problem area. You can even just rub a drop or two on the palms of your hands, cup your hands to your face and INHALE!!! ahhhh! Some oils can be taken internally, such as peppermint, thieves, lemon. A drop of peppermint or lemon in a quart of water makes a refreshing drink!
I believe that God has given us everything we need in nature for the health of our bodies. I mean, really, we were created in a GARDEN, right?? Why would the Creator Himself create us out of the dust of the earth if plants grown from that very same soil were not also for the healing of our ills? He has given us everything we need if we will but heed His wisdom. Eat foods that He has created, in as natural a state as possible. Drink water & herb tea & freshly squeezed juices. Get plenty of fresh air & sunshine. Get plenty of rest. Clean your home with all natural, non toxic cleaners (plenty of recipes here on the blog!). Get exercise in the fresh air & sunshine. Take supplements and use essential oils!
Essential oils are the “life juice” of the plants, concentrated way more powerfully than you or I could ever dream of duplicating. I still make herbal tinctures, remedies, teas, etc. but what I prepare is NOWHERE NEAR as powerful as these oils. They are God-created, pure & simple!!

Get started with a Premium Starter Kit and become a wholesale member! When you become a wholesale member by purchasing a Premium Starter Kit, you then are able to order oils at wholesale prices, kind of like a membership at Sam’s or other wholesale buying hub. The minimum needed to purchase to maintain your wholesale member status is about $50 PER YEAR. You DO NOT have to get on a monthly autoship – though that in itself is a great deal too. The monthly autoship program is called Essential Rewards – with this program you keep a monthly autoship of ANY PRODUCTS (can be changed up monthly if you want – this is what I do) of at least $50 per month and you will begin to earn POINTS that are redeemable for FREE OILS! Plus you get a reduced shipping rate. A total WIN.
Maybe you’re thinking, “I’m not quite sure about this yet…” and that’s ok!
Remember, I wasn’t convinced until the Kit came! Then it was all over, lol. If you’d like to learn more about the Company and oils, go fix yourself a cup of tea, then come on back and watch this video.
It’s Essential Oils 101, a class given by my friend Mary Souther Clendenin.
