Essential Oils, Popular

How I Ditched the Nasties and Gained Wellness Awareness

They’ve been all over the internet, taking over Pinterest at a furious pace.

Essential Oils.

You’ve heard a lot about essential oils being great for your health, your home, your pets. There’s tons of information and misinformation on the internet about essential oils, and it all seems overwhelming. This post is to walk you through why I personally chose essential oils, why I chose my brand, and give you some places where I get all my information on essential oils.

Why Essential Oils?

During my last move, I pulled two large moving boxes of stuff out from under my sink. I had been switching my diet over the last several months to a whole food, as organic, I could afford diet to hopefully avoid toxins going into my system. But I had continued cleaning my home, my pet’s bowls, my own dishes with various (usually the cheapest) toxic cleaners. I looked into many options for my new apartment.

Essential oils came up in my search, and I found a wealth of information on the net. Podcasts, blogs, videos, there’s so much information out there guys! I decided to go to my local health food store and pick up a few basics used in cleaning: lemon and tea tree oils. Armed with these two oils and tons of baking soda and vinegar, I tackled my move-in clean. I even cleaned my 1970’s oven to sparkling!

I was hooked and wanted to know more. A Google search led me to the Revolution Oil’s Podcast, The Essential Oil Revolution. Samantha Lee Wright’s podcast is full of education info on every use you could think of for Essential Oils.

Why did I Choose Young Living?

After researching several companies (all the big players) I chose Young Living oils because they are extremely open in the process of where their oils come from. After I learned how potent oils can be, I wanted to be sure I trusted where my oils were coming from.

This led me to Young Living. This family owned company has dozens of their own farms throughout the world, owning the process from start to finish, including the distillation. Guys, this is a BIG deal. A lot of brands buy from a wholesaler, and who knows what they’ve been mixing in? Young Living may seem expensive to brands that you find at Amazon and Walmart, but you know where it’s coming from. And isn’t that why you started this journey? To know what’s going on and in your body and space?

But the ones worth the most to me are the Spunky Oils Facebook group and the Revolutionized Lifestyle Facebook group.

I hope I made this clear for you guys! I know the desire for a healthier, more wellness-focused lifestyle is a goal many of us have, and essential oils were the best next step for me. Do you use essential oils? Let me know in the comments below!
