– Young Living Member No. 11204646 –
A thing happened. I am officially an "oiler," and a Young Living Distributor! Now, wait a second. Hold your judgment and hear me out for a sec.
I'd been aware of the world of essential oils for some time – about two years or so. I had done quite a bit of research (on Google, duh) about the history of oils, their uses and effectiveness, read how essential oils have transformed lives, and then felt intimidated and overwhelmed by the DIYs and the recipes and the idea of keeping track of which oil does what, slammed my computer shut and said, "no thanks, I'll stick to what I know." But oils kept coming up whenever I'd search for natural remedies for my family and myself. I'd see posts about essential oils on Facebook and Pinterest, read about oils on friends' blogs, and finally, my curiosity was piqued when someone I knew and trusted explained to me how beneficial oils have been to her and her family. So I did more research (that is, I spent more time on Google with a glass of wine in hand) and everything kept leading me back to Young Living.
Why Young Living?
Probably most of the Young Living family will tell you that the Seed to Seal® promise is what sealed the deal for them. (See what I did, there?) And to be honest, that's really what did it for me, too. As I understand it, a bottle of an essential oil can be labeled as 100% pure even if what is in the bottle isn't 100% pure oil. There are different grades of oils, therapeutic being the highest standard, purest grade of essential oil. However, some companies will claim "therapeutic grade" even if they're not. (Sad truth.) That's because the term "therapeutic grade" isn't certified by the FDA, so it's a claim that anyone can make freely. That's why it's so important to look into the companies you're buying from. Young Living is the only brand I trust.
My experience is minimal, and I've been trying to make peace with the fact that I'll never be an expert. In fact, I'm not sure it's possible for anyone to become an essential oil expert. (Except maybe D. Gary Young!) I've been doing some serious reading-up though, and have been testing and experimenting with different Young Living oils and blends in my home and on my family and myself in order to become more educated on what works for our bodies. After all, everyone's bodies are different and will react in different ways, so I've found that the best way to learn how each oil works is to safely and with caution try the oils out! I have learned so much already, and the whole family's health has benefited in such a short time! I'm really excited to start turning our home and health around with essential oils.

How to Become a Member
If you're considering giving oils a try, let me help you decide which membership option is best for you. And listen – I know you're excited, but I recommend that you read through all three options thoroughly before you make your decision! If you need more help, shoot me an email and I'll try to point you in the right direction.
There are three Young Living membership types:
- Wholesale Member – This is the best and most popular option for consumers, I think. It'll save you money, big time.
- Independent Distributor – This is for those of you who want to do this as a business. It's the same as the Wholesale Member, with added benefits (like money).
- Retail Customer – This is for customers who just want to buy one or two oils per year at full price.
