Why You Shouldn’t Buy Just ANY Essential Oil No ratings yet.

With essential oil companies popping up left and right, here's how to spot a fake, and here's who's always got your back.

Essential Oil Key Info: Before You Buy

With essential oil companies popping up all over the place, there are a few things you should know first.


1. The 26 Second Rule

Anything on your skin is in your bloodstream within 26 seconds.

Yes, this means it alters your DNA.

2. The 5% Law

One more thing before we get into the nitty gritty here.

The law only requires FIVE PERCENT of what is in an essential oils bottle to be actual oil from the plant.

This five percent bottle can be called “pure” and “therapeutic.”

Keep reading to find out what the other 95% is.

3. Organic Confusion

As consumers we generally see organic as safest, but that is hardly the case when it comes to essential oils.

The 5% law means that the “organic” oils you see on the shelf are packed full of synthetics and fragrance for highest profit.

Your body, very real and non-synthetic cannot handle fragrance or fake stuff, so every little cell in your body freaks out. Not good.

4. Pesticides Matter

Both inorganic and organic pesticides are still just that: pesticide.

And you do NOT want pesticides in your bloodstream.

There is only one company who never sprays their plants, and that’s Young Living.

Want proof?

You’re welcome on any farm, anywhere in the world, any day of the week.


5. Other Factors

I could go on forever about how Young Living is the only first distillation, zero pesticide, zero synthetics, and zero fragrance company and why all that matters.

However, it really comes down to pesticides.

They’re a big factor when it comes to the crazy-huge rise in disease, and it has to be stopped.

6. One-Stop Shop

Young Living has over 600 lifestyle products all bearing the Seed-to-Seal promise.

Zero junk. 100% oil in every single bottle–whether that’s chapstick, body wash, deodorant, CBD or anything in-between.

7. Your Vote Matters

When you buy from Young Living only for every cleaning, personal care, and supplement need, you’re saying to the rest of the world, “This is our demand. Real, body-helping products. Or you don’t see a dime.”

8. Less Expensive than In-Store

Young Living is less expensive despite the sticker shock much like when you’re at Costco or Sams for the first time seeing how much bulk costs.

Young Living is simply buying in bulk.

Because of this, I can get 29 household cleaners for $22.

300 times I’ve rid of fever for $21.

Not too shabby considering the store comes nowhere near these prices.

I would so love to chat oils and healthy living with you.

Our family has been toxin-free for three-and-a-half years as I write this in February of 2020.

All in an effort to stop disease in its tracks, feel better, and keep our six-year-old from relapsing (childhood cancer).

I teach Young Living because I have researched like crazy and cannot find anything else that matches Young Living’s purity, cost, and efficacy.

I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your needs!

My Fake Sensitive Skin No ratings yet.

Sensitive Skin?

For years I was told I had sensitive skin.

Sensitive to what?

They couldn’t tell me.

I was just “born with it,” docs guessed.

Also on the guessing board was that I must just be “prone” to things like acne, yeast infections, rashes, and dry, itchy skin.

I was also told I had oily skin and an oily scalp.

You can see where I’d be a little confused.

The Push

The more I pressed with the question, “...but why?” I only found hard pushback.

Then, at the start of my oily journey, I’d ask if my docs thought I might find some relief looking for the root problem.

No, there’s no way to tell. Until we can learn more about ___(enter issue here)___, here’s a script for ___(insert medicine, antibiotic, cream, etc)___here.”

However, no matter how many of those prescriptions I filled over the next two decades, I’d never even get close to getting better.

In fact, I was getting worse each year.


As I steeped myself further into the Young Living community, I read more and more testimonials about people overcoming their sensitive skin when ditching all their products and switching to Young Living’s toxin-free options.

This interested me for a few reasons:

1.) I’d already ditched all dyes, fragrances, and went organic but still had major issues.

2.) I had this new Essential Rewards thing that could help.

3.) I really had no other choice or help.

A Fresh Start

The decision was made to ditch all of my products by taking advantage of the Essential Rewards program.

So, I made a list of what all I needed.

I actually had the entire house plus husband and kid products on this list, but for the sake of the topic of sensitive skin, that part looked a little something like this:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Face Wash
  • Facial scrub
  • Toothpaste/Mouthwash/Floss
  • Moisturizer
  • Toner
  • Makeup (this one particularly freaked me out)
  • Body Wash
  • Shaving lotion/foam
  • Deodorant (also scary to switch)
  • Heat protectant for my 3,000 pounds of hair
  • Lotion (I prefer body cream)
  • Laundry Detergent (assuming since all my clothes are touching my skin, this made sense to me)

Blessing in Young Living

I knew Young Living was supposed to be safe, but I looked up the ingredients anyway.

I couldn’t find anything that would harm me.

In fact, they were the only company I could find who didn’t spray their plants, hand-weeded, and didn’t add anything synthetic to their products, so all systems were a go for Essential Rewards!

Steve (the hubby) and I decided on our budget, figured out which of the products we could stretch (mostly all, as they’re super concentrated), and started in on building a new home like we’d done years ago, but this time we’d do it right.


When you don’t have the budget to buy every single thing in one fell swoop, your rise to normal is a slow progression.

Because of that, I just got used to feeling better without any of my prior symptoms returning.

It didn’t seem like anything miraculous when you’re not exactly in a stage of life where you can focus on yourself, either. Two little boys, a full-time job, friends, family…you get it.

Until one day, years later, I realized just how much better we had become.


Last year, for our ten year wedding anniversary, we took a trip to Boston and stayed at Cape Cod.

We had the cutest little beach house, and it was perfect, except for one thing: the second we walked in the house, we threw the windows open, put all their products under the sink, and after knocking down the intense fake fragrance smell, ran the diffuser like crazy.

We used the towels provided in our Air BNB, and I immediately smelled toxic laundry detergent/fabric softener.

I was nervous, but without any other option, I did what I had to do.

After two days, my skin was itchy, I felt all the symptoms of a yeast infection coming on, and my nose was stuffy.

I was using all of our own non-toxic products.

The only difference was the fragrance in the air and synthetic junk in our towels and sheets.

I had the hardest time sleeping on those sheets and woke well before sunrise just to get out of the bed and away from that intense headache-making smell.

Grateful for Fake Sensitivity

I realized how good I had it with Young Living’s toxin-free lifestyle that weekend.

I can’t believe what a huge shift it was in just a day or two.

Weirdly, I’m glad I had to go back to my old life for just a couple of days.

It hit home even more why my purpose for writing, teaching, and sharing the Young Living lifestyle matters so much.

It further lit my fire to bring this to you every day.
