An Simple Introduction To Essential Oils

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that a few weeks ago we purchased a Premium Starter Kit with Young Living.  Ahhh! I am so grateful and excited to have these oils in our home for health and wellness!! There are also so many wonderful ways to use oils as chemical-infused cleaning and body product replacements. Say that ten times fast, haha!

As with anything we are excited about in our home, I can't wait to share with you as we learn along the way here on Today Is My Favorite.
 I know the thought of incorporating essential oils into your daily life can be so overwhelming. Have you ever felt that way?! My goal is to help simplify the process and so that's why I'm excited to take you along this journey with our family.

Once a week, I am going to be putting up quick vlogs that will cover one basic oil from the Everyday Oil Collections, sharing simple, helpful ways to incorporate that oil into your home.

This week's vlog is just a quick introduction and run through of what we got in our kit.  Plus you get a full five minutes of Emmett doing his own oils overview so that's pretty awesome. haha

I know there are so many essential oil companies to choose from and it can be overwhelming to know which one to choose.  Honestly, I think each family has to do their research and then make a decision for what best fits their family's needs.  Here are the two reasons we chose to go with Young Living.

First I love that Young Living owns and farms all the land that their plants are grown on. This gives them really high quality control over what goes into the bottles I purchase and use.  You can read more about this process here.  

I also love the uplifting, encouraging community of women that make up the team I joined.  If I had just purchased oils from a random internet company, I would feel really alone trying to navigate the waters of essential oils.  It's so great to have friends that I can call for advice or support.  To me, that is so valuable!
Have you been curious about essential oils and not sure where to start?! This is your invitation to join this journey and community I am building!  I would love to start a discussion with you about how oils might fit into your family's health and wellness routine.  If you would like more information, leave your email address in the comments or you can email me directly! Visit my contact page here to get a hold of me.  

If you are ready to jump in now and want to get your oils or kit so you can be using and learning right along with us, visit my essential oils page here for all the instructions for ordering.  It will be so so fun to work and learn together!!

Lastly! If you decide to join our team with a Premium Starter Kit like we did, you will get in on some really fun February promos I am holding!  First I will send you this gorgeous glass water bottle which is perfect for drinking essential oils each day, as you can only drink them in glass.  I love having a drop of citrus fresh or peppermint in my water every morning! Second, you will be entered into a drawing for a copy of the Essential Oils Pocket Reference

I can't wait to do this together as friends!

“We are starting our journey with Essential Oils and have done our own research on the purity of oils.  I am confident in using oils in our recipes because we only use Young Living.  They are  beyond organic and never use pesticides, herbicides or any harmful chemicals. Their soil has never been exposed to them as well.  I don’t suggest ever using any other oil for ingestion because I don’t know of their purity. "
