Why Young Living

I thought I would take a moment and share why I decided to use Young Living as my primary and really only brand when it comes to essential oils.

I used to buy other brands but I never would buy blends because I knew that a lot of unscrupulous companies would has a lot of filler oils and not a lot of the essential oil but charge as if it was a lot of the good stuff.


Fast forward to now. I love the Young Living blends just as much as the single oils. The quality can’t be beat! If you are thinking about what brand to use, Young Living is the ONE!

What makes Young living so special?

By having their own farms and employing Seed to Seal standards, Young Living ensures that NO ONE has more potent or more pure oils.


Young Living does this by regularly sampling and measuring the BRIX values of the plants.
(BRIX is a measure of the sugar level in the plants, which is indicative of plant metabolism (when plants photosynthesize, they store the energy from the sun as sugar).

Young Living then harvests the plants at the peak of their metabolic processes, which ensures that they are producing the most and best oil of their lifecycles.


You CAN NOT do this if you don’t have access to the plants on your own farms.

There is no question in my mind which brand to use to help support the wellness on my family and friends.

Young Living Essential Oils

Why choose Young Living

Story Time!

About 20 years ago, I was in a store called Burlington Coat Factory and found a small bottle of patchouli essential oil.

I read great things about patchouli and was excited to find it! I checked the packaging and the label because I wanted to be sure I was getting pure essential oil. Back then, I did not know that companies had a lot of leeway when they use terminology such as “pure“, “natural”, and “therapeutic“.


I opened the bottle and YUCK … I thought I didn’t like patchouli!

Fast forward to today. I realize that I didn’t like the chemically laced synthetic scent they were trying to pass off as PURE.


I’m so grateful for Young Living’s commitment to purity and quality. They prove to me time and time again that I can trust their claims and labeling 🌿…..

If you want a high quality essential oil, Young Living is the best option available.

OTC – Thieves Chest Rub

While I have an awesome DIY chest rub recipe, I like that there is Thieves Chest Rub available. It helps tackle seasonal colds and coughs that you can feel in your chest.

With natural camphor and menthol along with Eucalyptus oil and the power of Thieves, rub this on your chest to help relieve coughs, soothe nasal passages, and keep you breathing easily and comfortable while you recover.


It provides temporary relief of coughs caused by allergies, cold, minor throat and bronchial irritation. The aromatic vapors soothe nasal passages.

Plus, it’s plant based and formulated free of petroleum, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, synthetic perfumes or dyes, artificial colors, preservatives, or GMO ingredients!

AND it has a hands-free application !

Is it morning again?

I am not a morning person.

My bed feels so warm and cozy in the morning and once my feet hit the floor, I am off and running.

I sometimes apply different blends to my wrists and neck to uplift my mood too. I need all the help I can get!

When I get in the car, I like to get my diffuser going with some bright yummy smelling oils to help wake me up on the way to work. I feel energized and ready to face the day.

I love it because just a few drops of oil in the diffuser is efficient AND cost effective! Plus I do not have to worry about breathing in harmful chemical smells.

Here are some suggestions for diffusing in the morning for energy:

  • Lemon + Peppermint
  • Stress Away (blend) + Lime
  • Citrus Fresh (blend) + Lavender
  • Motivation (blend)

*In the car, I use one drop of each oil/oil blend so that it is not overpowering

Here are some suggestions for what I put on my wrists  & neck:

  • En-R-Gee (blend)
  • Stress Away (blend)
  • Valor (blend)
  • Happy roller (citrus oil blended in a roller- recipe below)

The Feelings Collection #bigemotions

The Feelings Collection

The Feelings™ collection features six essential oil blends that inspire feelings of emotional well-being when diffused. Use in the morning and evening to promote peaceful thoughts and spiritual harmony.

Harmony™, 5 ml
Forgiveness™, 5 ml
Inner Child™, 5 ml
Present Time™, 5 ml
Release™, 5ml
Valor II™, 5 ml

-VALOR has been used to help empower the physical and spiritual bodies, bring courage, confidence and self-esteem and has also been nicknamed a chiropractor in a bottle.

-HARMONY is used to establish spiritual and emotional harmony within us as well as bringing a harmonic balance to the chakras of the body, allowing us to feel safe and secure.

-FORGIVENESS may help people move past barriers in life by bringing them to a higher spiritual awareness of their needs. Using this oil can lead one to forgive, forget, let go, and go on with their lives.

-INNER CHILD may stimulate memory response and help one reconnect with their inner-self leading to emotional balance. When a child experiences trauma or abuse, they disconnect with their inner child and this can contribute to a manifestation of issues that are often labeled as a mid-life crisis.

-RELEASE can enhance the release of memory trauma from the cells of the liver, where anger and hate emotions are stored. It also helps to release frustration.

-PRESENT TIME was specifically blended to help bring people into the moment. We must live in the moment in order to heal. We cannot live yesterday, we cannot live tomorrow, we must live today.

The oils in this kit are blends containing several incredibly wonderful and powerful oils like Angelica, Rose, Sandalwood, Hyssop, Ylang Ylang, Neroli, and Frankincense along with many more.

This kit isn’t just for people with crazy pasts who desperately need emotional support, this is for people who feel mundane, or are ready to make a change, or want to be more emotionally healthy!

The great thing about blends is that they are ready to diffuse! I put 2-3 drops of Forgiveness or Harmony in the diffuser if the hubs and I have had a disagreement. It helps me to let go of the negativity that was causing the feelings of discontentment.
