I have a background in Research and Project Management for Clinical Trials in the wellness company feild. In my research I came across study after study of the effects of smells on people. From corporate buildings pumping Lemon throughout their office buildings to promote focus and clarity, to the way they can relax or balance you out.
I am kicking my past self for not saving those studies, having access (paid subscription through my work) allowed me to see the FULL studies, not just a blurb. I so wish I could share them without doing the research again and only being able to give you a portion. Boo past self, boo! So if you're super into that, my apologies, even with my background... I'm not going there with a toddler vying for my attention.
That thought of using something natural to have a positive outcome stuck with me. Then I watched, and watched, and watched others start to dive into different Essential Oil companies.
WHY did I choose Young Living?
After doing a LOT of research on oils of all different brands, I made the confident decision to go with Young Living.
This is hands-down one of those cases where you get what you pay for. Yes, you *can* buy a cheaper bottle of oil elsewhere, but *buyer beware* you are receiving an inferior product.
Young Living is the only company out there that has what is called the “Seed to Seal” promise, or anything like it. It means that Young Living controls every single aspect of their production line.
+ They own their own farms.
+ They plant their own seeds.
+ They cultivate their own crops.
+ They use essential oils on their plants.
+ They oversee everything, literally, from planting the seed to sealing the bottle.
They can say with a 100% guarantee that they know what is inside each and every bottle, and that they are pure beyond a shadow of a doubt.
In our house, we have been working on living as chemical and additive free as possible.
This. This is why I chose Young Living.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and if I’m going to be consistently using these products on the skin of myself and my loved ones (and breathing them in, and ingesting them), I want to know exactly what I’m getting. YL gives me that peace of mind.
