We recommend learning more because we believe that as a new mom, using Young Living Essential Oils, you will have the confidence to support and care for your growing family with natural, easy to use solutions - and that feels pretty great!
What are Essential Oils?
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the blood of the plant that transport nutrients & are very alive, very aromatic, and highly concentrated. They come from within plants and trees and are usually steam distilled to extract their aromatic and volatile liquids. They are highly concentrated because large volumes of plant material are needed to produce them. Essential oils come from: shrubs, bushes, flowers, roots, resin from trees, peels from fruits, and seeds.
Young Living is proud to set the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity by carefully monitoring the production of our oils through their unique Seed to Seal® process (learn more). From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, they apply the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended. No other essential oil company on the market today can make the claim that Young Living can in that they really do provide Seed to Seal quality. They plant the seeds on their own farms, cultivate their own plants, distill their own oils, test their oils for quality assurance (as well as send them out for independent, third party testing), and finally seal their own bottles. With Young Living, you can be confident that you are getting pure, therapeutic grade essential oils straight from the source.
How to Order
We can order them for you through Young Living at retail pricing, OR you can sign up yourself as a wholesale member when you purchase the Premium Starter Kit (here) and begin immediately saving 24% off retail prices for life!
The best place to start, in our opinion, is by becoming a wholesale member! Think of this like purchasing a wholesale membership to Costco for the year – all you have to do is spend $50/year to keep up your member status. *also, this does NOT mean you have to “sell” (or share, as we like to say) the oils - you simply are getting 24% off the retail price with this option.
The premium starter kit is the best bang for your buck – in this kit you’ll get the “everyday oils” collection which comes with a 5ml bottle of the 10 oils pictured below + 1 additional bonus oil! Also included are some samples and a diffuser. It’s a great way to get your feet wet, and see what this essential oil thing is all about!
If you are a client of ours (past or present) and you order a Premium Starter Kit, we will gift you with the book, Gentle Babies, that empowers you with information on how to use YL essential oils safely with your children and family.
