Good morning guys!! I finally did it! I signed up with Young Living. I have used essential oils for many years. I have a large collection of Now essential oils because I can buy them locally. Several years ago my house was chemical free. I made all of my cleaning products, bath products and laundry detergent.
Then I started working outside the home. Basically it was work, sleep, and softball. I would leave the house at 9 pm get off around 6:30 am, race home, pick up the girls and get them to school by 7:20, take #3 to school around 8:30, lay down and try to sleep, get back up at 2 pm to go get the girls, pick #3 up at 3:30, lay back down and try to nap until I had to take #2 to softball practice. I was averaging about 5 hours of actual sleep a day. For tournaments and #2 getting invited to play the world series I was staying up for 36 hours during those times. I was mentally and physically exhausted.
So, you can see that it was just easier to buy a bottle of cleaner of laundry detergent at the store than it was to make it at home. I barely had time to clean my house anyway. Everything I worked so hard to achieve was flushed down the toilet.
I no longer work outside the home and I’m still trying to recover from the stress on my body and my mind. And one day my home will be back to the way it was.
I’ve contemplated for several years about signing up with young living. I purchased a bottle of their thieves cleaner at one of our local health food stores and I absolutely loved it. When I use essential oils and homemade products for cleaning, it no longer feels like cleaning, its uplifting and you have that proud moment of, I made this! Its a wonderful feeling. Of course, you clean more so that you can make more products just to try them out.
I decided before we left for our thanksgiving vacay that I would go ahead and purchase the Basic Starter Kit. I wanted to try out some other products before I spent more money on a bigger kit. I knew I loved the thieves cleaner but I had not tried their other products. My kit arrived while we were still in Missouri, #1’s boyfriend put it on the couch so that I would see it when we got home. I was super excited!
When I opened the box that it was shipped in I instantly smelled the thieves cleaner. It came with a little sample pack. There was also an extra oil bottle in a little cardboard tube. The kit itself was wrapped in plastic, when I took the plastic off I noticed that something had leaked, it was my thieves sample, which I wasn’t happy about. It ruined some of the beautiful packaging. Keep in mind, I had just been in the car for 7 hours and I was tired and a little grumpy.
The packaging is amazing though. It was like getting an early Christmas present and it did smell really good.
I read the welcome letter and I love that they have their own farms where everything is grown and they don’t use any pesticides. I don’t use pesticides in my little garden and it is a lot of hard work keeping the bugs away and the weeds pulled.
I have honestly been using the oils too much to store them in this cute little thing.
My basic kit came with:
2-2 oz. Ningxia Red Supplements (I was scared to try these because I have never ingested essential oils, but my goodness, they are delicious and they do help get me through that afternoon slump)
1-1 oz. Thieves Household Cleaner Sample (this is what leaked out, I examined the package and I can’t figure it out. I chatted with them the next morning, the rep was super nice, said she would send out a new sample and give me 10 reward points, but that they didn’t have just the packaging. I told her not to worry about wasting the packaging and shipping for just a little sample but I appreciate the points. It took a few minutes to convince her that I was perfectly fine with just the points, no worries. I love great customer service)
1-5 ml. Bottle of Peace & Calming II (This was an extra that I wasn’t expecting)
1-Aroma Guide Roller Fitment
1-5 ml. Bottle of Stress Away (Let me tell you! This oil made the whole kit worth what I spent! I can’t even describe how I feel about this oil! Wow!)
10 Love It? Share It! Sample Business Cards
10 Love It? Share It! Sample Oil Bottles (I love my oils so far and I don’t want to share them! Lol!)
Product Guide and Product Price List
I really like the Peace & Calming II oil, but the Stress Away is amazing! I diffuse it every night when we go to bed, I put it on my neck and wrists in the morning and I also bought a diffuser necklace while we were in Missouri and I added a few drops to that. I wish you guys could smell this oil.
Now, I’m not going to make a bunch of posts and try to sell you guys these products or try to get you to sign up with me. If you have read through my blog, I hope that by now you know that I’m an honest person and if I don’t like a product or food, etc…I will be the first one to say, “Don’t try this, It’s horrible!”
I’m just getting started with the company and if I sell their products and people want to sign up with me then that is wonderful, if not, that’s great too. I don’t care if I make money, I’m doing this for me. I’m trying to get healthy again and re-create an uplifting and healthy environment for my family. My #3 walked in the house from school yesterday and said, “Why does it smell like a new house in here?” Lol! He’s 9 and loves to smell the oils and help me make stuff. He found the new linen spray I made yesterday and decided that he would clean everything with it. Proud momma moment!
