When my dear friend and trusted guru-of-all-things natural-and-holistic, Dr. Deb, began singing the praises of essential oils, I remember thinking “yeah, yeah, whatever”.
Adding more oils to my body was not something I was even willing to consider. The daily oil slick my face produced could have solved our national energy crisis, so adding oils to my skin was not a consideration. And taking oils internally, well, why would I need to add more fat to my body? Trust me, I already have more than my fair share!
Simply put, I just didn’t get it.
I went to my first Young Living class basically as a favor to Dr. Deb. I had trusted her for years with my health, so why wouldn’t I trust her now? I did trust her, but I also doubted her understanding of exactly how much oil my body already produced on its own!
Well, I wasn’t sold after my first class. In fact, I was even more skeptical. What in the world could these tiny little bottles of oils have to offer me?
My instructor offered a Raindrop technique to anyone who wanted to experience the oils firsthand. I had just been diagnosed with a serious thyroid issue, so I gladly accepted.
Little did I know how power-packed a single drop of a Young Living’s essential oil would be! I left the Raindrop technique feeling better than I had in a long time. Did it instantly cure my thyroid issue?
No. But I felt better physically than I had in a long time, and I knew without a shadow of a doubt that these oils were to become an integral part of taking control and maintaining my own wellness.
And so began my personal journey with Young Living’s essential oils.
I have taken several classes and learned many things about Young Living essential oils over the years. I’ll share just a few things that cleared up my initial misconceptions here:
– Essential oils are not greasy. They are actually drying. Who knew?!
– Essential oils are not fatty oils.
– Not everything labeled “essential oil” is a pure essential oil product. Many are mixed with other oils or are chemically synthesized.
– To maintain therapeutic properties, the essential oil should not be heated, even during the extraction process.
– One drop is powerful enough to reach every cell in the body!
God only gave me one body and I’m extremely picky about the products I use both in and on my body. I have confidence in the quality and therapeutic properties of Young Living essential oils.
What questions do you have about Young Living essential oils? I look forward to hearing from you and sharing in your Young Living essential oil journey. Let me know how I can help.
