Everyone knows someone obsessed with Young Living Essential Oils. Whether it’s a coworker, a family member, or even a friend on social media that posts pictures of different oils all day long.
For me, it’s my sister Naomi. But it’s not just pretty smells and cute little bottles to her. It has become her way of life.
Naomi has used Young Living Essential Oils to transform the way she cares for herself and her family.
She is a young mom with two little boys. She was unfamiliar with oils when she was invited to a class.
With a newborn baby and the motherly instinct to protect her baby as well as she could, Naomi was sold on the benefits of oils as a natural medicine.
God created these plants for us to use
Naomi’s initial experience with oils was tentative, using the oils here and there. But with faith in God and faith that He made these plants for us to use, she began to see how huge of an impact they could have on her family’s life. It started when her oldest son was a baby. He seemed to always be sick, they were always at the doctor and Naomi felt helpless. As mothers we all want to know exactly what to do when our babies are sick. But most importantly, to be able to do whatever we can for them. So Naomi decided to become a crazy oil lady. Seriously, those were her exact words.
She would set the timer on her phone to remind her to put them on her kids every morning and night. She studied and learned what different oils were used for and what the best way to apply them was. Then when one of the kids got sick or a headache or even a cut, she knew what to use instead of the toxic medicines and ointments. She began to realize when she used the oils consistently she could finally see that the oils were making a difference.
A great example Naomi used to explain it to me was aloe plants. The first thing we think when we get burned or get a sunburn is aloe will help heal it. Aloe IS an essential oil from the plant aloe vera! You’ve been using an essential oil all this time and haven’t even realized it. And the best part is it works! If you take the time to learn what all the essential oils are and how to use them the right way they will work too!
The ingredients are so much purer than traditional medicines
Young Living Essential Oils are so pure, and our bodies recognize them so much better than man made medicines. God made these plants exactly how our bodies needed to use them for immune support. If used consistently, they are always in your bloodstream and being carried to wherever the support is needed most. When you only use them once in a while your body has to backtrack. It will take longer to get well when you’re sick because they have that much more to make up for.
Naomi’s two boys still get sick. But while other kids will be sick for days or weeks, her kids will be sick for a few days with not nearly as bad of symptoms. It’s a habit that you have to form and for moms it’s an essential habit.
There is so much information about essential oils it can be overwhelming. But you just have to take it day by day and slowly learn what the best way to use each oil is. As a busy mom you might think I don’t have time for that. However if you really want to use oils to benefit your life and family, all you have to do it set aside 20 minutes a day to learn just a little about a different oil. And before you know it you’ll know a lot more about them than you realized.
So what kind of company is Young Living that they can transform a young mother’s way of life so much? Gary Young and his wife Mary have created a company that thrives on honest products and genuine hard work for the past 20 years. Gary is the brains behind the products. Owning their own farms that go back five generations, the Youngs’ have been able to keep pesticides and other chemicals away from their crops. They use their own oils as pest control for their crops and weed by hand.
Young Living’s oils bear the phrase “seed to seal.” Gary Young does not use “seed to seal” as a slogan but as his calling. Not only does he keep his farmland free of artificial chemicals, he keeps the seeds he uses in their original and God intended glory. He keeps the soil pure and with the right mineral content. These genuine seeds are given the chance to grow at their optimum potential.
As the seeds grow and mature into plants, they are taken care of as well as they are before they are planted. As plants reach near the time to harvest, Gary Young and his team of scientists go to the field every hour and run tests. These extensive tests pinpoint the time when best to harvest the plant. For example, Jasmine flowers need to be hand picked before the sun rises on the very first day they open. By being extremely attentive to the plants, Gary Young can maximize these plants’ potential that God blessed them with.
After they are harvested, Young Living runs a multitude of tests during the distilling process to ensure that they are pure and being distilled correctly. Small discrepancies can make a world of difference in the world of oils. If the plant is distilled at ten degrees too warm or cold it can have drastic consequences on the quality of the oils.
Young Living is the cleanest brand to use
Other companies may cut corners and distill with solvents and alcohols. But Young believes that the best thing to do is keep these plants’ use as close to God intended them to be used. They also stick to their word of authenticity, not matter what. They dumped an entire batch of Juniper because he was not satisfied with a small downgrade in quality. He was willing to eat the cost of dumping the batch because sacrificing quality is not an option.
This is what sets Young Living Essential Oils apart. Other companies use pesticides in order to increase their crop output. However, this sacrifices the quality. With FDA regulations, companies are able to sell a product with 5% of the plant in a bottle and be able to label it as that. The scary reality is that more lavender oil is being sold than there are lavender plants! Oils that you see in stores may have “do not ingest labels” on them. Which really leads you to ask yourself, what health benefits do these have at all?

When using oils to improve the health of yourself and your family, you need to be able to trust someone. Trusting God is an extremely pivotal part of a young Christian mother’s way of life. By using God’s plants how He intended them, you are putting you and your family’s health in His hands. Not in the hands of companies that pervert the purity of His plants for their own greed.
God spoke us into existence and he spoke plants into existence. Young has been able to keep God’s voice in the way we treat ourselves and our family with these oils. He has not succumbed to the greed of the market of modern medicine. He has cared about his products instead of cutting quality in order to increase his profit margin.
