Let me just start out by saying this… I’m not trying to sell you on essential oils. This is my perspective as a mother who wants to take a more natural approach in caring for her children. An approach that moves away from modern day remedies that often contain ingredients that I can’t pronounce and moving towards God given properties that work with our bodies. I know I’m not the only mother seeking the best for their children, so I’m passionately sharing how I’m making that happen.
It’s funny how your perspective changes when you become a mother. It changed in so many ways for me. When my first son was born, I was in awe as I sat in the hospital looking at him. This little human being that formed inside me was my responsibility and would rely on me for everything! It wasn’t until I grasped how new and pure his body was that I realized I didn’t want to just put anything into it, or on it for that matter. As parents, we are shaping our children for their entire lives…emotional, mentally, spiritually and physically.
I think it’s so easy and normal to stick to what you know and how you were raised, ya know? That was my thought process for a long time. When I started really thinking about what we were putting into our bodies, I became more conscious of the ingredients, not only from the food we eat, but what we put on our body. Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body and that whatever you put on it will be administered into your bloodstream within a matter of minutes? The more I researched and thought about this, the more uneasy I became with what we were using in our everyday life.
That was when it clicked for me. I knew I wanted to start moving in the direction of an alternative lifestyle that broke away from the things that were harmful to my boys, my husband and myself. This won’t be something that happens overnight, but I know I’m being proactive and taking steps towards creating a healthier life for my family.
After researching, I knew that the Young Living brand would help accommodate doing just that. Not all oils are created equal. I’ve seen oil bottles that say do not ingest. Then why on earth would I put it on my body? Essential oils work with your body aromatically, topically AND internally…not just one or two ways, all three. There is an industry-standard practice of dilution and adulteration that makes it necessary to use oils that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt are clean and pure. Young Living has a 20+ year history of being the best. Because Young Living is proud to set the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity, they offer a “Seed to Seal” guarantee that what you are getting couldn’t possibly be more clean or pure. From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, they apply the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended, unadulterated and free of synthetic chemicals. They are the only company in the world that does this. So, this is why I chose Young Living.
If you’ve ever wanted to move towards a more natural, holistic lifestyle, then I highly suggest trying out a starter kit of Young Living Essential Oils. If you are curious and want to find out more about oils and Young Living, I have an amazing and very informative webinar that I’d be happy to email you. Send me an email (southernmadeblog (at) gmail (dot) com) or comment below.
Ready to start using essential oils? Then you can get the kit here. I know learning how to use them can be intimidating and overwhelming. I’m a part of a group that offers continuing education on how, when and why to use the oils. That’s one of the best parts of getting your kit within our group! We are able to constantly learn and reach out to those who can help with any questions we have.
My goal in sharing our essential oils journey on my blog is to help you see how easy they are to use and how they can truly change your life. Not only does Young Living have essential oils, they have a variety of all-natural cleaning products, vitamins, and the list goes on and on. I can now go chemical free and replace it all with Young Living products. I’ve never been more thrilled to throw things away. I’ll be posting more on the blog about how we use them in our everyday life from what I diffuse, to the oils we use from morning to night, and how I cook and clean with them. You can find me on Instagram (southernmadeblog) sharing this as well. I’m very excited to take back our health and have y’all follow along with us in the process.
