Natural Health + Purpose & Community
I wanted nothing to do with Sharing, Selling or the Business Side of it. I had that mind set, that “selling” is bad or getting rewarded with $ for sharing something I believe in was still evil.
But then…I used the oils…often…and I felt differently…Happier, more balanced, more focused…
And since I love helping people to feel their best, I started to share.
I was 5 months pregnant when an old friend introduced me to Young Living. In the past I had purchased other essential oils that never made me feel any different when using them. I have only used them in the diffuser then or to clean my home. She explained the difference between other essential oils to me in the most logical way, she kept talking about “Seed to Seal” which is the company’s quality guarantee. That made no sense to me then haha… But now I get it all and it all came together. She explained how I could use them in the diffuser, topically as well as internally if I wanted to. I kept telling her that I only wanted to have 3 oils.
She explained that the smartest way would be to get the Premium Starter Kit, as it would contain a nice diffuser and 12 of the most common oils. Since the oils are 100% pure (other companies can label it 100% pure but it only has to contain 5% of actually essential oil – Bummer!!!) you can end up paying $100 for 3 oils easily. So getting the PSK makes so much sense for $165 including the diffuser and 12 oils. I said yes and ordered the entire kit, because I trusted her judgment since we first met.
I completely dove into it and used them daily for all kinds of things we all come across here and there.
For example to help with my head tensions – 1 drop of Peppermint onto the temples.
To support detoxification with 1 drop of lemon in my water.
To support my upset tummy when I ate too much or the wrong thing, or both LOL with a drop of Digize under the tounge and rubbed onto my belly with carrier oil like coconut or jojoba.
I honestly couldn’t quite believe that these oils had the power to make it all better…Until I experienced it for myself…I used Lavender for better sleep in the bedroom and measured my sleep quality for days through and app with my Fitbit to ensure it wasn’t just a placebo effect. Well, I slept with only a few restless phases instead of 8-10 every night the previous 2 weeks prior (according to my Fitbit App) and felt so much more rested. I diffused Lavender in my bed room while asleep and also put some on the soles of my feet with coconut oil. Knocked my husband and I out completely.
Another amazing experience =>
I had skin issues most of my life because I had an unhealthy gut balance. Over the years I have been cleaning up my diet, removing stressors that don’t serve me as well as added supplements that contributed to a better gut balance. But my skin wasn’t 100% yet. What can I say…
Frankincense became my best friend!!! One drop in the moisturizer changed my complexion. I was completely in love and sooo grateful!
I have been looking to better my lifestyle for over 15 years now. I have had mystery health issues most of my childhood – migraines, digestive trouble, then cystic acne, more belly trouble, brain fog and so much more. I was diagnose with IBS…Which to me is the diagnoses that is left after all tests came back negative – Tests: lactose intolerance, fructose intolerance, colonoscopy, gluten intolerance and a million more things. It could have been leaky gut or SIBO or so many other things too. I ended up finding some help with a naturopath in Germany – turned out I had candida overgrowth and aluminum and teflon in my body!
If you like to chat about your own frustrating gut issues with me, please reach out! My healing journey may be a chance for you to find your own. Even tough our bodies are all different, we have a lot in common. And keep in mind that a lot of physical ailments come from how we feel emotionally…Thats were the oils come in again.
Emotional and Psychological Link to the Limbic System:
The limbic system plays a powerful role in creating different emotions and feelings.
One important way that the limbic system impacts emotional health is through carrying sensory input from the environment to the hypothalamus and then from the hypothalamus to other parts of the body.
The hypothalamus acts like the “regulator” of hormone control, helps the body maintain homeostasis and send signals to the pituitary/thyroid/adrenal glands.
It receives information from many body parts, including the heart, vagus nerve, digestive system and skin.
Because of the hypothalamus’s functions, the limbic system is directly in control of your “stress response” and these key functions:
* Heart rate
* Blood pressure
* Stress levels
* Hormone balance
Interactions between the hypothalamus and the rest of the limbic system are responsible for controlling the autonomic nervous system —
including the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The SNS and PNS control our “fight or flight” response.
Anxiety and high amounts of stress also have an impact on inflammation levels, digestion and gut health, cardiovascular functions, your immune system, and the reproductive system — sometimes contributing to disorders like diabetes, insomnia, high blood pressure, higher susceptibility to infections and infertility.
Essential Oils and the Limbic System
The limbic system gathers information from the environment through sensory information.
For example, a massage can make you feel relaxed, and very loud noises can make you feel anxious.
Our sense of smell is unique compared to our other senses (such as taste, sight, hearing) because it bypasses parts of the brain that other types of sensory information often cannot.
Because of this, smells can often cause immediate and strong emotional reactions based on memories.
Smells can bring us back to past events, making us feel a certain way based on past events.
Essential oils, for example, can have dramatic effects on limbic function and how you feel.
This is true because the strong fragrances they hold, which are found inside volatile molecules that can make their way into your bloodstream, travel directly through the blood/brain barrier very quickly.
It really isn’t rocket science. Bottom line – They are the life force of plants!!! We simply can’t live without plant power.
If you want the best of the best when it comes to essentials oils, then you need to use Young Living’s Essential Oils. There are about 3% of all essential oils on the market that are considered good quality therapeutic grade, and Young Living is one of them with being the most experienced in ensuring that all therapeutic constituents are within the oil – they are the only essential oil company to test each batch with this badass machine – Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) to ensure all active constituents are in the oil that make it therapeutic for whatever purpose (for example better sleep)! If they are not, then the oils can’t have the effect it is intended to have, or just works very weak.
Gary Young took it on as his life’s mission to find the most amazing plants on the planet to support us emotionally and physically. He ensured that from the moment the seed is planted to the harvest, then the distillation process, the bottling and the testing by YL and a 3rd party – everything is done ethically and properly. They don’t use any pesticides, they love on their people and therefore have the best working conditions. Where do you find a company like this these days?! Their values completely align with mine.
Yes, Young Living is a bit like a cult of crazy oilers LOL. And I am SO grateful to be one of those crazy women, that take their health into their own hands. That I am part of a super strong, international network of like minded people that are connecting with each other and making the world a little better every day.
By helping fellow humans to also empower themselves through these essential oils and other natural every day products. Removing toxins from their homes, their make up, their foods and so much more. Building relationships and friendships for a life time.
