For years, I have tried.
I told myself that it was crazy. I told myself that it was a scam. I told myself that it was just a trend that would be gone just as soon as it became popular.
I tried and I fought and I pushed back just as hard as I could to not believe in the power of Young Living essential oils.
I tried. And I failed.
I can no longer deny what these wonderful oils and oil-infused products are doing for me and my family. I find myself reaching for them when I have a mosquito bite, when I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot fall back to sleep, when my kids have chapped lips. I use them to relieve headaches, stuffy noses, and sore muscles. I use them to clean our house and wash our fruits and vegetables.
In true Makely fashion, I believe that Young Living essential oils and products are making my home (and those of us in it) more awesome.
I have wanted to talk to you about these oils for some time (I did briefly here and here), but I kept stopping myself. I kept thinking, “Oh, they don’t really care about that.” Or, “What if they think I’m nuts?” But then I realized that if you’ve stuck around all this time, you probably do care and you definitely already know that I’m nuts.
So, here we go. My friend Myra got me hooked on Young Living when we shared a room at a blogging conference about 2 1/2 years ago. She had checked in before me, and our room already smelled like a spa when I walked in – she was diffusing the Thieves blend to purify the air and help support her immune system. It was love at first sniff for me, even before I understood the wellness benefits of using essential oils.
I bought a starter kit when I got home from that conference, and I started out just using the oils for basic things – to help make my house smell better, to help get relief from my mold and cedar allergies, and to help relax me so that I get better sleep. Then, I got into the Thieves all-purpose cleaner so that I could use an all-natural cleaner at home. And now, I’m using protein powders and the kids and I are drinking the NingXia Red whole body supplement. It really may be a mind over matter situation, but dang – I feel GREAT these days and I want to share it with the world!
I use Young Living because of the Seed to Seal promise. These products are genuine and without synthetics. The company carefully monitors every aspect of essential oil production – literally from the each plant seed to each bottle’s seal – so that it can produce essential oils with unmatched purity. I feel confident using them for myself and my family.
The Premium Starter Kit is what started it all for me. It includes 11 of the most used oils, a home diffuser of your choice (there are about several different kinds, but I like the Dewdrop diffuser personally) so you can disperse the essential oils into the air, some samples of other products and little bottles so you can share with your friends if you want to. All of this, plus more, is included:
Purchasing a Premium Starter Kit also gives you the ability to become a Young Living distributor and build a business, although it’s certainly not a requirement. I personally just enjoyed my starter kit and other Young Living products for years before I made the decision to begin sharing the products with my friends. But if you are looking for a way to make your family’s budget easier to meet or save up some fun money for a vacation (or pay off your mortgage or possibly replace an income), this is a great way to go about it.
Because I know that the world of essential oils can feel really intimidating, I want to help you out. If you become a Young Living member (you can’t order the kit as a retail customer) and place an order for a Premium Starter Kit in the month of March through this link, I will send you a personal gift to help you get started with your essential oils. I am certain that you will be pleased to have it, as I use mine nearly daily! 😉

P.S. I can’t wait to share with you EVERYTHING that’s been happening in my life over the last few months. Things have been quiet on the blog, but they’ve been moving and shaking behind the scenes. More to come very soon!
