Have you all heard about Essential oils?! I am seriously obsessed. OBSESSED. For a girl that used to have a candle burning at all times, having something that smells amazing while making my family healthier is like magic. Chris calls me our family medicine doctor and I am happy to have the title. I’m telling you these little bottles of oily goodness work! We were introduced to Essential Oils by my amazing friend Tara, founder of No 41. She had recently started using Young Living oils and shared some with me while Maya and I while we were visiting her. Before I even came home, I bought a Starter Kit of Young Living essential oils. I was so excited to get my kit and have LOVED learning more and using these oils on our little family.
We have been using essential oils in our family since February. When I first started using essential oils, I was a bit skeptical and there has been a bit of a learning curve, but now they have become a part of our every day routine. Maya loves them. She even has an empty bottle in her doctor kit to oil up her baby dolls. Alain is my very best “patient.” He is willing to try anything. He was the first one of us to try the hot tea/oil mixture for a sore throat. For the past several months, we’ve been experimenting and learning what works for each one of us. The great thing about the oils is that they are versatile. Each oil has several different uses and you can use several different oils for the same thing. As the winter months (AKA cold and flu season) will be quickly upon us, I plan on using our oils to keep our family healthy. Is it weird that I’m a bit excited when I hear a sneeze, so I can try out my oils? I am beginning to feel like I am understanding which oils work for what and I am excited to write about how we are using them in our home. I plan on posting a little bit more about specific essential oils every week. Stay tuned!! I’ve also added some more information in the menu above under the “Essential Oils” section.
If you are interested to get started with essential oils, I highly recommend the Premium Starter kit. Here is what you will get: Everyday Oils collection (10 of the most loved essential oils), Home Diffuser, Stress Away oil, samples of some of the most popular oils to share with friends. The kit is $150 and is without a doubt the best deal (The Everyday Oils collection alone is $124 and the diffuser is $100.) It is a great way to get started because you have enough oils to choose from and play with, but not too many to be overwhelmed. For information on how to order your starter kit, CLICK HERE. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
