Essential Oils have been all the rave when it came to health and wellness last year. And of course, Dave and I were part of those people who researched about them, tried them, grew to love 'em and in the end made them a part of our daily lives straight after. I remember how my Facebook news feed was flooded with essential oil posts around 3 months after we started our own oil journey. There were posts of people diffusing essential oils (the most common), creating roller blends for different needs, taking them orally (weight loss being the most popular) and even simply inhaling them. So, what are essential oils? And how can a tiny drop really do anything?

Basically, essential oils are highly concentrated liquid extracted from resin, leaves, stems, bark, roots, flowers or other plant elements. This liquid is usually distilled in order to make a pure oil. If you are wondering just how concentrated an essential oil is, it has been estimated that it takes around 3,000 lemons to make 2 pounds of lemon essential oil. Now, that is a whole lot of lemons! For just 2 pounds of oil?!

When using essential oils mainly to support your family's health and wellness, purity is an absolutely critical factor to take into account. Did you know that 95% of the world’s essential oils were created for industrial use? And that most of the oils found on the market, even in so called health stores, are of low quality? It's sad but true, that's why it's very important to know the source of your oils.

Young Living offers a Seed to Seal Guarantee – and this, dear readers, spoke volumes to me. The company grows their own plants, owns their own fields, works closely with partner farms who follow the same principles, and controls the entire process from planting all the way up to bottling. If my whole family (especially our kids) and I are going to use essential oils, then of course I want the best. The Seed to Seal Promise of Young Living means that each plant is hand-weeded, there are absolutely no pesticides used, no chemicals sprayed, and no weed killers, as well. The plants are harvested at their peak and vigorously tested. In a sense, they go directly from the farm to my home! You can read more on Seed to Seal here.

How essential oils helped my family

Dave and I actually stumbled upon essential oils in a documentary about fighting cancer using natural alternatives as opposed to the usual radiation route doctors popularly recommend. After that, we each did our own research on essential oils and later on decided to try them out ourselves. They helped us tremendously with our kids, in calming them down when they start acting up, boosting their immune system and for them to sleep better at night.

We only have limited choices when it comes to essential oils we can use around the kids, so Dave takes the rest with him at work. He diffuses in the car, uses the Stress Away as a roll on and inhales the RC and Purification blends in the office which helps him work better. I love the fact that I can get rid of mosquitoes by making a certain blend and simply diffusing it. As a wife and mom, I’m thankful to have these oils in my home to promote health and in the end help prevent anyone in our household from getting sick even more.

Quick note about shipping to the Philippines, we have a choice between Fedex or DHL. Fedex ships faster, some say it only takes 3 days, others a week at the most, but they do charge around Php560 upon delivery to your doorstep. DHL may take longer (2 weeks for us) but other than the $14 shipping fee, there are no extra charges upon delivery for packages with declared value of less than $200. If your order costs above $200, then your package will get taxed. Keep that in mind when you place your orders. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does signing up make me a “distributor”?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts, just so we're clear.

In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all, like myself. Yup, I don't sell, I just consume haha. We buy from Young Living on a regular basis because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?

There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership active.

But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

You can also sign up for Essential Rewards when you order, only if you want to. It basically means you will spend right around $50 a month ($100 a month if you are selling). You will then start building up points which equal free products! You also get to receive cheaper shipping, 20% back in points towards free products, and the ability to receive all bonus’ and commissions!

Essential oils can truly help pave the way to a healthier you. But, don't just take my word for it, you can research about it at length (the same way we did) before joining us and starting your own oil journey!

Young Living essential oils has definitely stretched our peso!
