Welcome friends, to My Beloved Oils, a little space to learn more about how essential oils can provide wellness for your family and support for your little ones as they grow and develop.
Before I started using oils, I was very skeptical. I just had a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea that these little bottles could have an impact on my family's overall wellness. I am still constantly amazed by the testimonies of friends and family and our own experiences.
I first started researching essential oils when my husband was under a ton of work-related stress. I had heard of friends using oils for emotional support and I figured it was worth looking into. My plan actually was to roll them on his feet at night while he slept and diffuse all the live long day. Ha! Luckily, he jumped on board quickly and I didn't have to be so sneaky about it! As I learned more, I was fascinated by the science behind how and why they work and continued to explore how else they might be beneficial for my family.
Once I started my research, I couldn't get enough! I started watching all my oily friends' videos and I downloaded the Think Dirty App. It is the easiest way to learn about the ingredients in your beauty, personal care and household products. You just scan the product barcode and Think Dirty will give you easy-to-understand info on the product and its ingredients. The good, the bad, and the ugly truth. Mercy! That was a huge eye opener! I couldn't believe what we were putting on our bodies and in our home! Frankly, I was mad! Mad that some of the ingredients were known carcinogens, allergens, and even hormone disrupters. Mad that I couldn't trust the labels I was reading at the store and all the tricky
marketing that was previously making me feel good about my purchases (organic, made with essential oils, 100% pure, natural,...). So much of it untrue once I dove a little deeper. I was totally bummed! That's when I discovered that Young Living had so much more to offer than just little bottles of oils and we started slowly switching out our products for truly safe, non-toxic ones.
Now that we have been using Young Living essential oils for dozens of uses in our daily routines over the last year, I'm convinced that other families could also benefit from their use. I would love to walk you through your own journey of exploring essential oils as you take care of your health and raise happy, healthy kids.
