Essential Oils

How we got started:

You are probably wondering what essential oils have to do with a teaching blog. Well, let me tell you how this nifty little page came to be. Over a year ago, my wife, along with what appears to be a vast number of the population, purchased Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit. Being totally facts, data, and logically minded, I was a little skeptical about if these oils actually “worked.” But, I was okay with the purchase, since my wife takes the primary role in caring for our family’s health needs, and I completely trust her judgment (she is an amazing mom!).

My wife started using essential oils on all of us. Yes, even me. She would apply them to the bottoms of our feet, diffuse them in the air, and even add a drop or two to her water. And here is what I noticed. Some essential oils are calming. Very calming. Our kids sleep. Yes, I’m talking about our one and two year olds. We sleep better too. Some essential oils boost the immune system. Our kids stay healthier, regardless of regular playgroups, story times, and Sunday school. Even I haven’t succumbed to all the common sniffles and what not that makes the rounds through school every year! Some oils can also be stimulating. Those come in very handy on late nights of lesson planning. And let me tell you, our home smells great. There are just so many uses for essential oils.

And then essential oils started to spread! We clean with them, cook with them, carry them everywhere we go. My wife even puts them in her beauty products. We have replaced many of the toxins in our home with them. Essential oils have been an absolute life-changer for our family. They have been the catalyst we have needed to make health-promoting changes to our lifestyle. After seeing the dramatic effect they have had in my home life, I decided to take them into my work life.

And there you have it! This is why I created this page. I have seen so many benefits of essential oils in my home life, as well as in the classroom. For example, I diffuse calming oils after recess or lunch, stimulating oils during tests, and immune boosting oils during the winter.

Why choose Young Living?

Young Living has been around since 1992 and produces the highest quality essential oils (better than organic) that meet our standards with the “Seed to Seal Process.” They are the only company that owns their own farms, which means they can ensure that the highest standards are being use from the time the plant is a seed to the time they seal the bottle. They are so committed to providing the best quality oils that they don’t even use pesticides. They use essential oils for pest control and weed by hand. Their essential oils are distilled without chemicals. We use Young Living because we know that we are getting high quality, 100% pure essential oils.

The Premium Starter Kit

Young Living offers an affordable way to get started using essential oils. There are several kits available, but the Premium Starter Kit is the best value. The kit comes with 11 essential oils, a home diffuser (there are two to choose from or you have two other options to upgrade for a cost), a roller ball to place on one of your bottles, two samples of Ningxia Red (Young Living’s nutritional supplement), and lots of samples and literature to help you get started! The retail cost of the kit is over $300, but by becoming a wholesale member, you can purchase the kit for $160. And you get 24% off all future purchases. It is such a great deal to help you get started using essential oils!
