Why you want to put your hands in the dirt

Why you want to put your hands in the dirt
Young Living has this incredible quality commitment called seed to seal.  
It's not a slogan it's a calling.

Seed where?  
To whom?  
Sealing what now?
What does this all mean?   

Seed to seal means that from the time the certified non-GMO seeds are chosen an hand-selected, to the time each essential oil bottle is sealed, every step of the process is painstakingly controlled 100% by Young Living.
Every. Single. Step.

The three pillars of Seed to Seal—Sourcing, Science, and Standards— ensure that the farming, harvesting, distillation, legal compliance, and quality testing of the essential oils produced by Young Living are all done without compromise.  
It also ensures that we care deeply for the earth, our farms, our plants, and the employees in communities that surround them.
Young Living has been bringing pure oils “from the soil to the oil” since 1993, a process that takes years to begin, and far more to perfect.

So why settle for anything less?

See for yourself...
Young Living is the only essential oil company in the world that is not a broker.  
Young Living is the only essential oil company in the world that owns or partners with each farm AND distills all oils on-site.  
This company has nothing to hide, truly zip.   
They are so open and transparent that their farms and distilleries around the world are open to the public where you, too, can see their commitment to qualify and sustainability with your very own eyes.  

Get to a farm. Stick your hands in the dirt.  It will change you forever.

I sure did me.   Every single time I open a bottle of Juniper, it take me right back to that first step on to the farm.   I wiped touched, I smelled, I tasted, I felt, I laughed, I wiped tears.   It is hard to put into words, and it all comes back with one inhalation.

You know how when you go to a healthy, open-kitchen restaurant and feel reassured as you watch your food getting prepared with the freshest ingredients?  
This is the same open-- door philosophy at Young Living.   
We encourage you to visit the farms, tour our distilleries, participate in a harvest,  meet the people,  feel the true passion for the purity and purpose.   
It is who we are.

What are you using to cut your grass?

What are you using to cut your grass?
 
Repeat after me, 
not all essential oils are created equal.
Let's discuss why Young Living.  

We love that essential oils are all the rage and are no longer considered weird hippie voodoo.  Countless brands of essential oils can now be found everywhere, from grocery stores to gas stations,  promising all kinds of things. 
The problem is, you don't actually know what's inside those bottles.  
They might be deluded, impure, or not even what they're claiming to be at all.

Price is what you pay but value is what you get.
Young Living essential oils may cost you more than those cheapie oils on the shelf at the store, so let's breakdown why this is and how they are an amazing value once you understand the difference.  
You aren't cheap.  
You deserve the best.
Put down that $3 bottle of lavender oil.
Today, many essential oil manufacturers make synthetic oils in a lab that can smell EXACTLY like the plant they claim to be from.  Your nose may not know the difference,  but your body does.  
Unfortunately, the essential oil industry is highly under-regulated, and there are many tricks of the trade used to mass produce inexpensive oils.  
Essential oils can be cut with synthetics, floral waters can be labeled as “essential oils,” oils can be extracted from plants using toxic solvents that leave chemical by-products in your oil,  and the list goes on.  These products will not help you have a healthier body, mind, or home:  instead they can be quite dangerous to your health.  
 
Purity is important, because if you purchase a product that isn’t, you won’t get the results you could get. 
Aside from the toxins and other chemicals you’ll likely encounter by using an inferior product

impure oils just don’t work.
 
That might lead you to think that essential oils don’t work. In reality, they do. 
You just happened to use something that didn’t have the ability to work.
 
It’s like trying to cut your front yard with a pair of scissors.   Crazy right?  
Most people have no idea that those scissors (the second-rate oils) are the wrong tool.   They do understand that lawn mowers are better than scissors for cutting grass, 
but they don’t understand that a higher quality oil is a better tool for anything related to your health and wellbeing.
  
Would you rather 
Eat a burger from McDonalds or an Angus burger I cook for you on my grill?
Would you rather drive a brand new Kia or a brand new Mercedes? 
Folgers or Starbucks?
Coach or First Class?
 
See.   We understand quality differentiation in every area of life. Essential oils are no different.

But, do they really work?

But, do they really work?
Not get to get too sciency, but this is an important topic to understand.  It's all good and fun to hear 1000 times that “essential oils work,” but we get it, you wanna know how and why.

So, grab your nerdy glasses and get ready for a mini lesson on essential oils, why they're so incredible,  why you probably know a few crazy oil-obsessed people, but might not fully understand their passion – yet.  Don't worry, stick around us and you'll be one soon enough.  Here’s why.   
They work

Oils work when they enter the body by inhalation (smell ‘em)  absorption (apply ‘em) or ingestion  (eat ‘em)   Because the body recognizes oils as nutrients, they work synergistically to help support our natural healing response.  In contrast, synthetic chemicals are recognized as foreign substances and often contain dangerous ingredients to mimic the properties that nature as built into botanicals.

Essential oils are composed of very, very, tiny molecules making them extremely concentrated.  One drop of essential oil contains approximately 40 million - trillion molecules.  Numerically, that is a 4 with 19 zeros after it.  WOW!   

How fast do essential oils work?
22 seconds
The molecules reach your brain in 22 seconds
2 minutes
They can be found in your bloodstream in two minutes.
20 minutes
They can affect every cell in your body in 20 minutes.

Because essential oil molecules are so small, they can penetrate our skin, enter our bloodstream, and support the internal organs of our body.  Since we have 100 trillion cells in our bodies,  one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40,000 molecules!

When inhaling an essential oil, it travels through our nasal passage to a receptor neuron that transmits it up to our limbic brain - our mind’s control center for emotions, mood, and memory. 
 That’s right!
By smelling an oil the molecules go up inside your brain.  And, because the molecules are so small,  essential oils can penetrate the blood - brain barrier,  which is part of why they are so effective for therapeutic use. Within 20 minutes of being placed anywhere on our skin, essential oils can penetrate and effect every cell within our bodies.   
This is why using the highest quality oil possible is absolutely essential.

A Powerful Health Trend

A Powerful Health Trend
Have you ever peeled an orange and smelled that beautiful mist in the air?

Have you ever felt rejuvenated by the scent of pine trees while on a walk in the woods?

Have you ever felt happy after breathing in the aroma of a fresh bouquet of wildflowers?

Have you ever tasted that minty fruit fresh flavor of peppermint in a smoothie and felt refreshed?

If you have, then you've experienced essential oils.  

Essential oils are much more than beautifully scented plant juice!   These oils are called essential because plants need them to live.  We think they’re essential to have in your home too.  

Essential oils are the aromatic liquid within the leaves, petals, roots, grasses, bark, seeds, and stems of plants. They can be extracted using steam distillation, resin tapping, or cold pressing.   

Lemon rinds, rose petals, eucalyptus leaves, and frankincense resin are all examples of beautiful parts of our world that can produce essential oils.   Oils are created by God, placed in nature for purposes from helping the plant survive and thrive to improving your wellness.   

Oils are often referred to as the lifeblood of the plant,  since they protect the plant from environmental elements like weather, insects, fungus, and disease.  The way oils protect plants in the same way they can protect you too.
 
For thousands of years people in many cultures have relied on essential oils and have used them in a multitude of ways for countless ailments and issues.  As more and more health practitioners, doctors, scientists, and users like us venture into this world of ancient knowledge, essential oils are no longer the missing link in modern medicine.  

Integrating oils into your life allows you to make your emotional, physical, and mental health a priority in the most natural way and it doesn't have to be overwhelming.  

Each plant in nature is linked to specific health benefits.  It takes a lot of plant material to yield a tiny amount of oil-- a whole lot!  It takes up 1 pound of peppermint to make a 15 ml bottle of Peppermint oil, or 50 rose flowers to make just one drop of Rose oil!  This is why essential oils are so highly concentrated and potent-- up to 70 times more powerful than the original plant for dried herbs.  This is also why you only need to use a small amount; just one drop is often enough.

A Great Place to Begin...


The Little Oilers Starter Kit is a member favorite! It comes with an adorable Feather the Owl diffuser and 5 oils from the KidScents line. The diffuser doubles as a sound machine and a nightlight— perfect for kiddos!  You will quickly fall in love the soft music, nature sounds, waves, and light changes on his belly.   

The most common ways to use oils with children are aromatically and topically. Aromatically just means diffusing or inhaling from your palms or the bottle. When diffusing around children, I always recommend starting with just 1-2 drops of each oil and increasing from there. 

Learning to use oils on children can sometimes be overwhelming, so never hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions—that’s what I’m here for! But I also wanted to share one of my favorite resources for using oils on the little ones—a book called Gentle Babies by Debra Raybern. It has so many great tips and education for supporting your kiddos naturally! 
Using oils topically means to apply them directly onto the skin. It is important to properly dilute oils as needed when applying topically on babies and children. This is the dilution guide recommended by Young Living when applying oils topically to babies and children.

My favorite thing about our Little Oilers Kit is that all of the oils come pre-diluted. So, when you’re using the Little Oilers collection on children 2+ years old, you do not have to dilute further. Hello, easy button!
 
The first oil from your kit that I wanted to share about with you is SleepyIze. This oil is one of the most loved oils in the Little Oilers Kit because when supporting a little person’s body, one of the best things they can have is a good night's sleep.

This oil is a blend of some of the best calming and relaxing oils such as Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Sacred Frankincense. The oils in this blend are perfect for winding down before a nap or bedtime and can also help with restlessness or big emotions. And even though this is considered a “kid’s oil,” many adults love to diffuse this blend in their room at night while they sleep too. (you will soon discover that everyone in the family are sharing these!)
 
This is a great oil to diffuse at night and let your kiddos touch the talons to turn on Feather.   It will soon be a naptime/nighttime routine.  
 
 Owie was formulated specifically for all of the boo boos that comes along with childhood. Most parents like to keep this one in the diaper bag or backpack so it is always on hand for whenever an accident happens! To use this oil, just apply one drop to any minor skin irritation, bump, cut, or bug bite! 

GeneYus oil is also known as “focus in a bottle”! This oil is a game changer for anyone that has trouble focusing on or completing a task! My favorite way to apply this oil is to place one drop on the back of the neck (over the brain stem) before heading to school. You can also apply on the wrists when you really need to concentrate or diffuse when doing homework!
 
SniffleEase is a blend of oils that supports healthy breathing, including Eucalyptus, Marjoram, and Peppermint. This oil is great for keeping little lungs healthy and easing the sniffles as the seasons change. I would recommend taking one of the roller tops that comes in your kit and adding it to this oil for easier application. The easiest way to apply this one is to roll on the chest, back, under the nose, or feet of your little!

TummyGize is also another member favorite for children and adults. It is perfect for keeping those grumbles away and settling even the tiniest of tummies. Pop one of the roller tops on this bottle and roll around the belly button when needed!
