Almost seven year ago, our family took a huge step in our wellness journey.
I had already been shopping at Whole Foods or Trader Joes, ate organic, local when possible, and avoided GMOs. I had also been learning about the extent of the dangers lurking in my home that were making me sick... Then I got married, had kids, and began to learn SO much more...
There are ingredients in everyday things like baby lotion, air fresheners, dish soap, dryer sheets… all linked to cancer, infertility, and disease. We just didn’t know.
We slowly but surely took a trash bag through our home and began to read labels. Into the trash bag went candles, over the counter drugs, shampoo — anything that was setting us or our kiddos up for failure with our health. We didn’t learn it all overnight, but we made little steps each month. As we made these steps, our family’s little health issues disappeared before our eyes. Skin issues were gone. That groggy, tired, lifeless feeling was gone. We began to truly feel healthy in a way we hadn’t before (and we were considerably healthy people).
We came to found out that even some of the things we were buying from Whole Foods, for example, contained toxins we didn't want to expose ourselves too... plus they were expensive AND it was 40 minutes to our local Whole Foods!
Then, in February 2017, we found a company we trust who uses the purest ingredients around, and we began slowly replacing things each month with their products. The company is Young Living. Over the course of this last year, month by month, little by little, our home now looks completely different.
We began to use essential oils for a whole lot of things (you’d be surprised what they can do, and the science behind them is fascinating) but Young Living is so much more than oils. Dish soap, laundry soap, baby products, beauty products, men’s products, kids’ products, supplements, household cleaning stuff… we get it all directly to our front door from Young Living, and we don’t have to stress or think twice. (No more trips to Whole Foods!) It’s been one of the most relieving things to happen along our wellness journey. And the results have been truly incredible. It has taken what seemed like an overwhelming task and made it such an awesome experience.
Today, we use essential oils for everything in our home, from seasonal irritations outdoors, to first aid type of things, to helping regulate hormones and emotions and all that good stuff, and of course restful sleep! They’ve blessed our family so so much. It’s hard to remember cleaning, parenting, or going about our day without them.
Things we used to “have to” do for our family’s “health” …we don’t rely on those things now. Haven’t needed them once. In fact, our medicine cabinet could not look more different than it did nine years ago. To think that we haven’t relied on toxic “medical supplies” is pretty impressive. Before, we just didn’t know there were other options, or that there were so many side effects and dangers that just weren’t worth it.
Know better, do better! and be a light!
The concept of putting good things into our body and getting goodness out… it now seems so simple. You can’t poison the body into wellness. And there’s no sense in treating the body horribly and then dealing with sickness when it inevitably arrives. Instead, we can care for our bodies everyday by fueling them right, and we get to avoid sickness altogether! It’s been such a more peaceful way to live.
The way we initially got started is the way I’d recommend any family interested in embarking on their wellness journey get started: the Premium Starter Kit.
As a wholesale member, you also get 24% off everything, always, which is hugely beneficial when you’re like me and you want to dip your toe into slowly transforming your home little by little.
The starter kit comes with:
-11 of the most widely used essential oils
-A diffuser of your choice
-Sample packets of our favorite antioxidant drink
-Cute little glass bottles
-A spot on Derek & I’s “team” (which doesn’t mean you have to be involved in the business side, no worries) and endless support on how to get the very most out of your oils, plus overall wellness education. Basically, a big fun oily family.
You can grab your starter kit on our team HERE.
Once you’re all good to go, let me know via the contact tab, because I will:
-Friend you on facebook!
-Get you plugged into our Happy Oiler groups!
-Send you $10 back ($20 if you sign up for Essential Rewards at time of sign-up!) -Send you a Welcome Packet in the mail!

After seeing so many families take charge of their health and turn it around, we’ve become so incredibly passionate about getting these oils into as many homes as possible (and getting the harmful stuff out!) We are so happy to chit chat about Young Living with anyone who wants information.
