Why I Joined Young Living

You have seen a myriad of posts, ads, and probably know someone that uses Young Living Essential Oils. Over the years I have had friends tell me their stories of success. Stories that will make you want to run right out and buy every oil. But I was still skeptical. My turning point, was when I got to see first hand how it changed one friend's son. His quality of life changed dramatically. 

It wasn't until more and more people I knew started using them that I decided that this could be the thing that helps my family. You see, my kids all have focus and attention issues, learning disabilities, etc. Personally, I don't like having my kids on any medication unless they absolutely need it. I opt for a natural way of reducing pain, speeding healing, or calming if there is away.

So, when my youngest son was put on a slew of medications for ADHD, Anxiety, Impulsivity, I wanted to find another alternative. I know that oils are not a substitute for medication but if I can reduce the amount of medicine my child takes it would be much better for him. 

My oldest daughter and I are plagued with migraines. Sometimes they are so bad they put us both in bed for a day. My daughter has even passed out from one and had a seizure. And like my friend Nina Say, I too have had awful pain in the side of my head. One time it lasted every few seconds for 14 days.

My daughter can't take pills because of a high gag reflex. At 18, getting medications in liquid, chewable, or sublingual form can be very expensive since we have to buy twice as much children's over the counter medications to be effective.  I am hoping that Young Living Oils will help reduce our pain naturally, reduce the amount of pills we need to crush, and help save us some money in the long run. 

My husband and I hate taking pills, me more so than him. I can't stand it. I don't know why but I won't takes pills if I don't have to. Even with my migraines. If it's super bad I will break down but for the most part no matter how I feel. I will try to ride it out. Some days I can and some days it's just too painful.

All that to say, I joined Young Living for my family. My kids are my life and I would rather them not be on so many medications. If I can reduce the amount of chemicals going into their bodies I will feel more at ease. This is why I took the plunge and ordered my Premium Starter Kit.  


I look forward to sharing how they work, my insights and how to use them with you. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or leave me a comment on this page!

  11. I've been using Young Living for awhile now, especially for the boys. I prefer a homeopathic route and YL is doing just that.

  12. I really want to try Young Living to see how it works with getting my oldest to sleep quickly. She's a very determined, work driven child so her mind seems to be on work mode all the time and it's harder for her to wire down quickly
