I've used oils on and off for several years. I've had oils from other direct sales companies, oils from the grocery store, oils from TJ Maxx, you get the picture, right?
I'm a skeptic by nature. I had heard about Young Living, and thought, "First of all, I don't like network marketing. It kinda makes my skin crawl. Second, why would I pay $20 for an oil when I can pay $6 at Whole Foods for essentially the same thing? Forget it. I'm not doing that." Then I had a couple of friends who were die hard Young Living oilers. Like, people I love and trust. So, the skeptic in me researched. For months and MONTHS, I poured over the information. And as it turns out, I was wrong. NOT ALL OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL.
Did you know that the FDA only requires 5% of a bottle's contents to have come from plant matter for a brand to say 100% pure on the label? You heard me right. 5 PERCENT. They get away with it because essential oils are not regulated by the FDA. Store brands often contain synthetics and fillers that degrade the oils, making them not only less effective, but toxins in those "pure oils" can jeopardize the health of the user. Uh yeah. No thanks.
With over 20 years of experience, Young Living is the world leader and pioneer in essential oil research and the distillation process. Young Living is the only company with the Seed to Seal Promise. What does that mean to you and to me? Basically, they control every factor from the seeds planted, the soil the seeds are grown in, all the way to the on-site distillation, testing and sealing of the bottles, which are then shipped directly to you.
After months of research and asking lots of questions, I decided that Young Living is the only company I feel comfortable putting my trust in for the well being of my family. Room by room, we're making small changes. As we run out of a "toxic" product, we replace it with a Young Living product. Doing it this way has taken an overwhelming task and made it not-so-overwhelming. It's actually been fun.
