If you follow me on Facebook, or Instagram, or down the highway in Louisiana (please don't...that's just creepy) you know I love love LOVE my essential oils. Not a day goes by that you don't hear me say "There's an oil for that!" Because really...there's an oil for everything. E-VE-RY-THING! But I still get those loons who question me and my love. You know who you are! So I'm here to tell you why I love Young Living essential oils so fricken much!
1. They are pretty
Yeah. Yeah. I know what you are thinking. So what right? But y'all! This is a big deal. I love pretty things. People love pretty things. EVERYONE loves pretty things. It's what we, as humans, do. Glitter? LOVE IT! Unicorns farting rainbows? LOVE IT! Why? Because they are pretty! And Young Living products are pretty too! Their diffusers are sleek and modern and simple. The bottle labels speak to my soul. And the packaging...well...let's just say it's a DREAM to open up a brand new kit. It's like the Heavens sing. Yeah...you heard those angels when you opened your kit!
2. They support a healthy immune system.
Thieves is my jam! With an active 8 year old that's in school, we need all the immune support we can get. I use Thieves all day everyday to keep my family in tip top shape! Plus...it smells like Christmas. SANTA!
3. They smell like a spa.
Lavender is like a spa in a bottle. After a long day at work, it helps me unwind and relax for the evening. It also helps my zoo not be raging loons.
4. They support your body.
Copaiba supports your body's natural response to injury or irritation. That's my way of saying...if you feel old, like me, you need this. Capiche?
5. They relieve occasional muscle soreness and tension.
Combine Panaway with Copaiba and you will feel like a 21 year old dancing on the bar in the club.
Disclaimer: What you do in your spare time is a personal decision. I do not recommend dancing on bars whether you are 21 or 61. Don't. Just don't. Unless you're auditioning for the next Coyote Ugly movie. In which case...you still shouldn't dance on bars.
6. They support healthy digestion.
You know those nights when you decide to binge on OITNB and eat an entire tub of ice cream? Yeah...Di-Gize is your friend.
7. Sweet baby Jesus!
He loves essential oils too!
8. They taste delicious!
I am a sucker for a delicious glass of lemonade. A glass of lemonade that is good for my overall wellness? Count me in!
9. They replace my air freshener
I have a zoo. I love my zoo, but they stink. Bad. My husband stinks too. Those are just the top reasons I am thankful for Purification. Alongside Thieves, it's my top diffused oil. Nothing is better than a clean, refreshing smell without the toxic and head pounding chemicals of candles and plug ins.
10. Just pray and apply Stress Away!
Not a day goes by that I don't pray and roll on my Stress Away. It's instant relief from the craziness of that thing called life.
11. Brownies! I love brownies!
Peppermint is a wonderful addition to a batch of delicious, warm brownies. As a dietary supplement, Peppermint Vitality oil can support healthy gut function and digestive efficiency. Sounds like a win, win to me!
12. Exercise is important.
Ok...let's be real. I don't exercise. But my son does! He's an avid soccer player and a drop or two of RC on his chest gets him through his hot, exhausting games.
13. Your body is a wonderland
That's probably NOT what John Mayer had in mind when he wrote that song, but let's pretend. K? We drink an ounce of Ningxia a day to load our body with antioxidants to support overall wellness. It's loaded with wolfberry! Wolfberries are your friend!
14. Learning is fun!
20 years ago I wouldn't have said that. I wasn't a fan of school. But learning about essential oils and the human body is so much fun! The way these oils work and the way our body benefits from them is truly amazing to me. I learn something new everyday and I love sharing the info with my fellow oilers.
The friendships that I have made through Young Living are second to none. I have truly found my happy place and my tribe. We are all chasing our dreams and supporting each other every single day. We laugh together, cry together, and kick ass together. We love our oils and love sharing our love of oils.
There you have it. The love is real y'all. I really could have written a book about my obsession but it's time for me to hit up Starbucks. Want in on the oily goodness? You can head here to learn more about Young Living and purchase your very own starter kit.
