Why?

I realized that I had to make a change with the way we ran our household. Whatever you put in or on your body reaches your blood supply – and the most important systems of your body! – within 26 seconds. Researchers say that what you put on your skin effects your more than what you put inside your mouth. Yikes!

Cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, fabric softeners, dish soap, toiletries, perfumes, make up, candles and air fresheners are in the 10 most common household poisons. Most people come in contact with over 300 dangerous chemicals per day, and most women use 80 chemicals before breakfast! If it has the word “fragrance,” it probably means that it is going to hurt your body.

Most chemicals are toxic substances that destroy your immune system and disrupt your endocrine system. Like tension, this sometimes results in heart disease or cancer, but more often comes into your life in the form of stress, insomnia, chronic pain, lethargy, obesity, migraines, and emotional instability.

I used to be a Bath & Bodyworks junkie! I had read about the damaging impact of toxins. I believed it. At the same time, I was in such a knot of tension that I couldn’t begin the process to NOT use the same old products I had been buying for years. What would I do instead?

When I feel the impact that these damaging chemicals have had on my health and see the same symptoms in people around me, I want a different future for Jack and for his generation.

Oils are my ticket to freedom! this is not only the way that we protect our immune systems and support the systems in our bodies - it is what we use in place of the toxins that I used to surround myself with. They are a gift for our health and emotions - as well as our cleaning cabinet!

What?

Essential oils are highly concentrated compounds that are derived directly from plants and carry the healing and therapeutic powers of plants. They are the essences of plants derived from the seeds, roots, stems, flowers, and bark, through the process of distilling.

They are comprised of tiny molecules that your body absorbs through the skin or nose. They reach your bloodstream within 26 seconds (!) and travel up to your pituitary gland and then into all the systems of your body to interact in marvelous ways.

When I first looked into this, I was shocked to find that substances that touch your skin enter your bloodstream faster than if they enter your mouth. I’ve always thought that it’s okay if you touch things as long as you don’t eat them - and comforted myself with that thought for my toddler! (Gag.) Not so.

If an essential oil makes contact with a harmful chemical at any point in the life of the plant, or oil, the integrity is compromised. Your body will feel this in harmful ways, and all the damaging power of the chemicals will be transferred into your blood and the systems of your body.

Almost every brand of oils - yes, all the mainstream ones! - adds additives and fillers. Of course, this isn’t going to be healing for your body – it will only be another harmful hormonal nightmare, and these oils will do more harm than good. I tried them over the years, and never felt compelled to share about them… until… I used Young Living oils.

Young Living is the ONLY brand of essential oils that has a guarantee that their oils are never touched by harmful chemicals. They source fields all over the world that are untouched by pesticides to grow their plants!

The process of creating a perfect and pure product is a long and costly journey. Jasmine has to be picked at a certain time of day; a sandalwood tree has to be grown for 30+ years before it is at its peak; a 5 ml bottle of rose oil takes 22 lbs of rose petals to produce! Young Living has 30+ years of research and a team of chemists and farmers who are constantly working to ensure that the product that reaches you is completely pure. A single bottle of oil has to pass 90 tests before it is considered perfect!

This is why we trust these oils for our family. Your body will FEEL the vibrant strength of this life-giving difference.
