In the U.S., 84,000 chemicals are being used in tens of thousands of household products while only 11 are regulated. The under-regulation coupled with misleading advertisement leave consumers clueless. Even more, many “natural” household products commit a green washing sin making it overwhelming to find products safe for your home. Essential Oil based products and Essential Oils are quick and easy ways to kick chemicals to the curb.
Essential Oils act as the life force of plants helping to regulate and promote the health of plants just like the blood in our bodies. Plants are powerful helping us to keep our homes clean, stay healthy, provide essential nutrients and even make us look beautiful. Unlike man-made synthetic chemicals, our bodies know what to do with plants and how to handle them.
Humans and plants have a symbiotic relationship to survival (think oxygen) making them a safe and natural alternative to many mainstream products.

HOW I CHOOSE MY ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential Oils interest has quadulped since 2014 leading to many new entrants in the market . When choosing the company I buy Essential Oils from, I look at a number of factors.
- 100% TOXIN FREE – Young Living is the ONLY Essential Oil company that controls the entire Essential Oil process from buying their land “virgin”, or 100% free of pesticides, planting, weeding by hand, distilling and bottling. This is an important distinction because no fillers or synthetic chemicals are ever added to their oils unlike ALL other brands. Because Essential Oils are highly concentrated versions of plants, I want to ensure that when I put them on my body I am not also putting highly concentrated versions of chemicals as well. The only other company I would ever consider purchasing my Essential Oils from would be DoTerra. Unfortunately, DoTerra does not exercise the same controls that Young Living does. While they do have certain testing protocols they are simply re-bottling from other sources and cannot always be 100% sure their products are free of toxic chemicals.
- REWARDS FOR PURCHASES – When purchasing my products through Young Living, I get free products each month, money back on every purchase (10%-25% depending on how long you have been a customer of YL) and many other perks. Before I was buying from products from traditional retailers (Amazon, Grocery Store, Sephora) and not receiving the same rewards.
- ONE STOP SHOP – As a mother of 3 young children and a wife to a pilot, I do not want to spend my hours driving around town to pick-up all the toxin free products for my home. Thankfully, I order 90% of products from YL because of the vast variety of products they carry. Plus, it gets shipped directly to my door.
- 250+ PLANT-BASED PRODUCTS – Young Living carries the most Essential Oil products out of any other Essential Oil company. Because of their wide-selection, I am able to stock-up my home with many household basic with more opportunities to get rewarded. From an entire cleaning product line, make-up line, personal care line, supplements and more, I have more opportunities to get money back vs. other Essential Oil companies.
When making your final decision, search for products that go beyond organic and therapeutic-grade quality. Look for a company that does not outsource any part of their process and maintains entire control of the plants. Replacing chemicals with naturally derived ingredients should be done with care and rigor all the way down to where you source your oils from.
