My Essential Oil Journey & Why I Chose Young Living

Young Living Essential Oils

Hey guys!

So, now that I can confidently say I am pretty well versed in the oily world, I can answer your burning question… “so, why did you choose Young Living?!” It’s pretty simple really, but to be as thorough as possible, I spelled it all out below.

Young Living Essential Oils

When I first got into essential oils about a year ago, I went into it blindly and got any old oil I could find on Amazon. I wasn’t getting the results I thought I’d see from them, so I never fell in love. I used them off and on until about a month ago, until I was introduced to Young Living. After doing lots of research and hearing so many friends rave about them and their benefits… I made the plunge and went all in! I ordered my starter kit and haven’t looked back since. Since my oils were delivered, I haven’t gone a day with out using them. They’re seriously my new obsession!

Did you know that essential oils are not regulated? That means you can’t trust what the labels say and even if you get your oil off the shelves of your local grocery store for only $5 and the bottle reads “100% therapeutic grade”, that doesn’t mean it’s true. Actually, that little bottle could only be filled with 5% of the actual oil it claims to be. What else do they stuff in those oils? Well, possible chemical extenders, artificial fragrances, fillers, and more. Even more, they can be distilled completely wrong, ruining any chance you have at reaping any benefits from them. YUCK! 

You are probably thinking, “alright, yep, but what makes Young Living any different?”

Young living has what they call a “Seed to Seal” standard, and they hold themselves to that standard no. matter. what. Unlike any other essential oil company (ever), Young Living grows the plants they use to make their essential oils organically, all over the world where the climate best matches the plant’s needs. I mean, if they feel as if the growing conditions aren’t up to par, the oil that plant creates will be out of stock until the plant is ready to properly grow and be harvested. They use very specific science to distill their oils so you reap every last benefit they have to offer, all on site at their very own distilleries. Seriously, can it get any better?!

Well, yep, it can. If you still don’t trust their authenticity, you can go see it for yourself. They are open to the public and don’t mind if you come to visit! See their process for yourself.

Ready to Grab Your Own Oils?

I wrote an entire post about how to go about signing up & how it all works here.

Or, go directly to the sign up page here. From there, be sure to keep “member” checked so that you are eligible for wholesale pricing (it’s a must). Click “continue” and choose the starter kit you want… it’s that simple! I would recommend the Premium starter kit with the Desert Mist Diffuser, it’s definitely the best deal with 11 essential oils, a bunch of samples, and a gorgeous diffuser.

xx, Amanda

      Hi Tonya! I use them for SO many things but mainly, digestion, anxiety/ stress, and sleep. In my most recent post I share some of the ways I use my oils as an LEOG, you may find that post helpful!

    I didn’t get the hype of essential oils for years, and then my sister introduced me to Young Living. Now I can’t imagine life without them. I swear by peppermint, lavender, and grapefruit especially (though not all mixed together haha)!

      lol! Right?! I didn’t either, especially since I had some that were just “eh”. Little did I know that the quality matters SO much! So glad I found Young Living.

    I’ve recently gotten in to oils as well! Scary to think that some of the cheaper products could have all of that junk in them! Best to stick to reputable brands, for sure.

      Thanks Kristin! It definitely pays to do your research! I am so glad to have found Young Living!! The oils I was using before (which I did research on and thought were pretty reputable) definitely don’t have the same effects on me as these! It’s crazy, the difference that I can feel!! xx

    I have quite a few friends that swear by young living essential oils. They tend to be a bit strong and bother my husbands allergies so I haven’t branched out yet with them. But I know many have received so many benefits from them.

      They are awesome! I absolutely love them. I wonder if we could possibly find an essential oil for your husband that HELPS his allergies instead of hindering them! I know many people swear by lavender, peppermint, and lemon to help fight against seasonal allergies! R.C. is another good one, it’s super affordable and people compare it to Vick’s… but of course it’s all natural!
