Essential Oils – Just Getting Started

By Lindsayleighbentley @lindsayLbentley

I’ve loved essential oils since I first visited my Aunt at her home 15 years ago.  She, her home, and her family always smelled amazing, and I didn’t know why, but I knew that I felt really good in her house.  Relaxed, happy, peaceful.  It smelled wonderful but not in an artificial way that would make me sneeze or get a headache.  I also got the best sleep of my life there!

Turns out, she’s been way ahead of the game and has been using Young Living Essential Oils for almost 20 years now.  She even gifted me some White Angelica after I commented on how amazing it smelled, and I just recently bought myself a replacement bottle as a treat.  I was hooked.  Seriously, it’s divine.

I finally signed up to be a distributor a few months ago (yay!!!) and haven’t regretted it for a second.

Even though I am in the very early stages of learning how to use them medicinally, and I hope you will join along as I discover the wonderful, powerful, and delicious ways that they can positively affect us: mind, body, and spirit.

I thought that becoming a distributor would be like selling Mary Kay (sans cancer-causing ingredients, am I right?).  Anyhow, It turns out that the best way for an individual to purchase them is to become a distributor yourself!

Ok, I know, like you need one more thing…but it’s not like that.  Honestly, the word “distributor” is a bit misleading, because you don’t “sell” to anyone else.  It’s super simple, and they don’t flood your inbox with emails, or pressure you into anything…love that.

The perk is that you get 24% off retail, and benefit from anyone who signs up under you, but there’s no obligation.  Whew.

So here’s what you do:

1. click HERE to be routed to the website and enter my code (1404324) for your referral.

2. choose your enrollment package – the cheapest one if $40 and worth every penny!  You get a ton of goodies, 2 oils, samples, and coupons for more products in every option.

I chosethe next one up, which supplied me with a wonderful start-up selection of oils, including a few of my very favorites: Peace & Calming, and Thieves.  It’s a great way to find out what you like without spending a ton of money on a bunch of larger bottles. You also got a coupon for $40 off a diffuser – win!!

They walk you through everything, and their customer service is wonderful!  I always seem to need to call companies I am working with!

Once you are signed up, you will be able to purchase these amazing oils at 24% off retail.

The only “requirement” is that you purchase enough to keep your position as a distributor.  I have found this very easy to do, as I love buying them as gifts, to use medicinally, in my diffuser for home fragrance, in cleaners, in the dryer for laundry, and topically on myself and my family.

Anyhow, if becoming a distributor isn’t for you, you can still easily purchase them through AMAZON, you just don’t receive the discount.

With essential oils, you really do get what you pay for.  Something I have found out just in the last year is that oils can be labeled “100% pure, therapeutic grade” but not be! (i.e.: most, if not all, grocery store brands.)  Knowing how potent and powerful they are, I definitely don’t want to be using ones that are chemically processed, contain any ingredients other than the pure oil, or come from plants that have been treated with pesticides!  

I trust Young Living , and they have had a fabulous reputation for ages!

Alright, so I’m SO excited –  i can’t believe it’s taken me this long to tell you about it!

I’ll be posting new findings, creative ways for using them, helpful hints, and other little tidbits about these oils periodically.

I’ll share soon about one of my newest favorites: Gentle Baby.
