The money I make on this blog I use to support my family, and my blog. I also only share things that I personally use. Everything I post is my honest opinion and experience. 

When I think about why I got started using essential oils a quote from Platinum Distributor Sarah Harnisch comes to mind, “It’s empowering to see people get healthy. It’s a calling, not an occupation. If they say they can’t afford health, they will pay for it in other areas. Chemical use has a price on it, and that price is high. It’s about creating an awareness so they start to take steps to swap chemicals out.” That is the most important reason why I share Young Living with other people. If I can help someone to live a healthier lifestyle than I will, because God wants us to take care of the body that He has given us. If we have the option to choose better, then why aren’t we doing it? I am going to share three things you probably don’t know about essential oils, and I am also going to be sharing three excuses people tend to make when saying no to using them.

1. What are essential oils?

All of the information I am sharing with you is coming from the Gameplan book, written by Sarah Harnisch. She is a certified aromatherapist, and highly qualified in using essential oils, so let’s get into the facts.

Essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant. They are distilled from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, fruit, rinds, resins, and herbs. Oils consist of over 100 different naturals, organic compounds. In humans, they provide support for every system of the body: your skeletal system, your muscular system, circulatory system, endocrine system, and your hormones. They support brain health and a healthy weight. They are used extensively for emotions and for spiritual support. An oil diffuser can soothe a child’s tough day at school and provide a calming effect when you’ve had a stressful day at work. Have I educated you enough on this topic ? It honestly could take hours, but I don’t want to bore you to death. I just want you to understand the full capacity that oils can have.

2. Oils can provide an alternative to using chemical cleaning products in your home.

Did you know that you are actually spending more on your chemical filled cleaning products from the grocery store?

Let me demonstrate.

Not only is Thieves cleaner nontoxic and cost-effective, it also serves as a multi-purpose cleaner. It can be used for almost anything. Not to mention it smells amazing!

3. Some Interesting Facts About Young Living Essential Oils

I just found this really interesting and wanted to share it with you all!

  • 60 thousand rose blossoms provide only 1 ounce of rose oil
  • Lavender is abundant – 220 pounds will provide 7 pounds of oil.
  • Jasmine flowers must be picked by hand before the sun becomes hot on the very first day they open, thus making it one of the most expensive oils in the world! It takes 8 million hand-picked blossoms to produce 2.2 pounds of oil. 
  • A Sandalwood tree must be 30 years old and 30 feet high before it can be cut down for distillation.

Who knew that it took that much effort to create an essential oil? I know I didn’t until I read this book!

Three Excuses People Have Made About Investing in Essential Oils

1. They’re too expensive

The real question is how much are you willing to pay for your health? According to On average, the typical American spends $42 a month on chemical products. Why not cut the costs, and invest in your health? Most oils range from $10-$60 and they typically come in a 5ml bottle that will last you for about three months, so that is $20 a month for your health. I can promise you it is worth it!

2. It’s inconvenient to order online

I know it can seem frustrating to order online, but the way they do it. It’s simple and effective. It takes me one week to get my monthly order in, and it is so much fun! It feels like Christmas every time for my order to comes in! So go ahead and throw out that excuse!

3. I don’t even know where to start

Yes, you do, and you will. Once you make the choice to throw out the chemicals and toxins in your life, then I will show you where to start. Just comment below if you are interested, and I will get you set up! It doesn’t take an expert to use oils. All it takes is a desire to learn, and finding passion in using them! 

The Premium Starter Kit Costs $160 or $27.00 a month for 6 months with Paypal. This includes The Dessert Mist Diffuser, which is super cool btw it changes colors! It also comes with 11 essential oils. A Thieves Cleaning Sample, which you can use for at least two bottles of the cleaners of your choice. Two Ningxia Red all natural energy drinks, and more resources to help you learn about the oils, so you can start sharing your love for oils with others as well.
