Welcome! I wanted to start by sharing a little bit about myself and why I got started with Young Living. 4 years ago, We had just had our second child. She was born with something called Jejunal Atresia, 6 blockages in her bowels, Her appendix grew in her chest and She was needing immediate surgery at only 12 hours old, after being born 6 weeks early. After 6 weeks in hospital, we were finally on the road to going home when she fell gravely ill and had an E.coli infection and her PICC line had flicked up into her neck causing a blood clot. Her TPN was draining into her lungs and we thought we were going to loose her. We are ever so grateful for modern medicine and Our incredible team at BC Children’s + Women’s hospital! But when we thought everything was “better” and she was able to go home, little did we know we would still have alot of ongoing issues.
Maisie suffered from a lot of nausea, vomiting, pain in her tummy. We had tried everything you could imagine, and She was on quite a few different medications. I finally took a step back, and decided to try some more natural products in our home. We came across Young Living Essential oils, My husband also suffers severally from migraines, so I thought why not?! What do i have to loose? After having these oils in our home for only a few short weeks, I was already in love and using them on a daily basis. They were becoming our first line of defense in our home!
SO WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. Basically, when you smell a rose or a pine forest, the aroma that you are smelling is the essential oil rising into the air. In plants, essential oils help to attract pollinators, detract predators, send chemical signals to other plants, and help protect against bacteria and fungus.
There are 3 basic ways to use essential oils.
2. Topical Application
3. Some are labelled and safe for flavoring food and drinks.
Fragrance is the substance of memories. Research shows that when inhaling the pure constituents in these essential oils, it can activate regions in the brain that is associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind.
Tests have shown oils reach the heart, liver, and thyroid in three seconds when inhaled; they were found in the bloodstream in 26 seconds when applied topically. Expulsion of essential oils takes three to six hours in a normal, healthy body.
Have you ever smelt something, and it took you back to a memory years ago? That is how powerful a scent is connected to our brain. To help you rediscover peace, balance, and joy, using essential oils for diffusion, soothing baths, massage, and topical application is a must.
Another reason why diffusing essential oils is so important is because they purify and cleanse the air from environmental impurities. Not only are you making your home smell absolutely amazing, you aren’t damaging your health like those other nasty fragrant sprays, candles and plug-ins do.
Another one of our favorite ways to use essential oils is topically. Proper usage is indicated on each essential oil label. The idea of “if a little is good, a lot is better” is not always correct.
Essential oils are very potent and powerful, so start low and go slow. In most cases 1-2 drops are adequate and using more may waste product. Depending on the essential oil, you can gradually build up to 3-4 uses per day if desired. Because of the essential oils molecular size, they are smaller than cells, which allows oils to penetrate your skin very quickly.
Your skin is the largest organ you have. Everything that touches you skin, your shampoo, your deodorant, your make-up, your lotion, is absorbed into the bloodstream, which then carries those toxins to your delicate organs.
What a gift it is to have peace of mind and know exactly what we are using on our bodies now. To not use any synthetic lotions or perfumes and have replaced them with clean plant based ones and use essential oils… we get compliments all the time on how good we smell.
Another way to use Young Living essential oils, is internally. Young Living’s Plus line is GRAS approved (Generally Regarded as Safe) for internal usage. What is the purpose behind the Plus oils? A white label means that they are safe for proper internal usage. Now, with that being said, the oils aren’t really new. The labels are, yes, but these are the same essential oils Young Living was already selling. What sets them apart is that they are labeled specifically for internal use, whereas the regular essential oils are labeled for aromatic and topical use. The Lemon plus with the white label, is the exact same oil as the Lemon oil with the solid yellow label.
Young Living’s essential oils are very high in antioxidants, and create an unfriendly environment for free radicals so applying them topically or adding your your food and beverage is extremely beneficial.
Free radicals come from sources outside your body, such as tobacco smoke, toxins that we apply and use every day, the food and water we drink, and pollutants.
You want to know what else free radicals do to our bodies… make you look and feel older! And we are not sure about you, but we do not want to look and feel older than we are! We want to slow down that process down as much as we can.
