Young Living Essential Oils Giveaway
My son projectile vomited this morning all over the carpet.
I called the nurse advice line right away and gave Alex some anti-nausea medicine, which helped him stop throwing up after about an hour. By then, the whole downstairs smelled like his breakfast in reverse. Despite scrubbing the carpet and cleaning up all the vomit, the carpet retained the acidic, putrid smell. Every time I walked down the stairs the smell wafted into my nostrils and made me retreat back up the stairs. Since staying upstairs all day was not an option, I busted out the trusty carpet cleaner and added a few drops of Young Living’s Purification oil into the water tank. Not only did running the carpet cleaner eliminate the horrible smell, the addition of the Purification essential oil made the room smell so refreshing. Any reminder of this morning’s incident was gone…except for a traumatized mommy.
Ever since Alex was born, I have heard great things about essential oils from other moms. Some moms swear by its healing and calming properties. Some moms use it for everything, from cleaning the house to improving acne and from relieving anxiety to losing weight. As a big proponent of natural, alternative methods of healing, I really want to believe in essential oils so I can add it to my home remedies arsenal, but I just had not had the chance to look into it further.
Thanks to Mena Honey, a good mom friend of mine and a Young Living consultant, I was able to step into the world of essential oils and try out a handful of samples. I purchased a diffuser and started testing out the oils. My favorite so far is the peppermint essential oil because of its cooling effects. Smelling the peppermint infused mist from the diffuser is truly like a breath of fresh air and helps relieve my headaches – which I have way too often, but then again, I am a mom of a toddler and a baby. I also like to diffuse the peppermint oil when my little ones have a cold to help decongest their little noses.
Don’t just take it from me! Here are some testimonials from other moms on essential oils:
“Lavender is my all-time favorite – great for sleeping, relaxing, bath (put it in the water). Amazing for diaper rashes, any rashes really. I just pour a drop or two in my kids’ bath and their skin clears up overnight.” ~ Melissa
“I use a lavender/lemon combo for odor control, purification, and relaxation/sleep. I typically have it running in my diffuser at school or will put it in my diffuser necklace when I am out. It also helps to control some anxiety.” ~ Nichole
“Love using Eucalyptus for all sorts of sore muscles or into the humidifier for congestion and clove for when Riley was teething. I love the thieves oil to put in Greek yogurt with stevia because I find it delicious.” ~ Lauren
“I’ve really learned to appreciate the frankincense oil. I use it on my face every day/night along with my face cream to balance my skin tone AKA sun/age spots. I also take a few deep breaths of it before going into meditation to help against brain fog and for spiritual awareness.” ~Kiersten
“Since most companies hide harmful chemicals such as phthalates under the term ‘fragrance’ or ‘perfume,’ I’ve been making a lot of my own products using essential oils. I’ve made all purpose cleaner, carpet deodorizer, mouthwash, cologne/beard oil for my husband, and countless other things. I use them in the laundry and on wool dryer balls, and I even just used some peppermint oil to keep some pesky ants away! I also diffuse, but I make sure the blends are safe for dogs and kids.” ~ Jennifer
Why Young Living?
Now, there are a lot of essential oils out there, but you have to make sure that you purchase ones that you can trust. Some essential oils are diluted with vegetable oils and therefore actually contains a very small amount of the concentrated oils from aromatic plants. Young Living uses a “Seed to Seal” process that carefully monitors the production of the oils “from the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle.” Moreover, Young Living owns its own farms or partners with farms that live up to their high quality standards. With over 20 years in the industry, Young Living is committed to essential oil purity and fostering whole-life wellness.
