I signed up for Young Living almost a year ago and I have never regretted my decision in the slightest. YL has been such a game changer and I have loved every minute of my switch to “cleaner” living.
Why did I join, you might ask?
Young Living vows to provide a safe, holistic product providing major health benefits to their people. It is a company that has been around since 1993 and has truly stood the test of time.
Living a healthy lifestyle has been important to me, but it’s not until I sat down and start going through all the products in our home and studying their ingredients that I realized how really important it is to have clean, safe products readily available. The typical store bought products that you are using to clean your floors, your table, the kids toys, etc. are all filled with unsafe chemicals and long lasting effects.
WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?
I wanted a natural way to support our immune system, a natural way to relief pain and aches, like when we have a headache or feel sluggish. I wanted a healthy gut and an energized body. I wanted a natural way for our family to stay healthy and I saw it all in the essential oils.
As we are still very much in the cold and flu season, it can be hard to find products that do the job adequately but aren’t full of addictives and extra gunk.
My husband will get a headache and reach for his over the counter medicine without a second thought. I’m not that all medicines are bad and some are very much needed (don’t get me wrong on that), but we don’t always realize how many other ingredients go into our bodies that we’re not aware of! I know friends with kids who want safer ingredients for when they get a runny nose, start to cough, feel congested, aren’t able to sleep due to air quality in our home, and so many other things are why I wanted to incorporate essential oils into our lives.
WHY YOUNG LIVING?
I picked Young Living because I support their mission as a company, their transparency to the community and for their promos of the Seed to Seal guarantee. Their oils are pure and not altered like so many of the others you find in stores.
STARTER KIT OPTIONS
PREMIUM STARTER KIT (PSK)
In my opinion, this is the best option in first starting out with Young Living. As you see listed below, you are saving over $245 with the PSK. How crazy?!
With your PSK, you will receive a:
- Dewdrop Diffuser w/ Power Adapter
- AromaEase 5mL
- Cedarwood 5mL
- Citrus Fresh 5mL
- Lavender 5mL
- Lemon 5mL
- Pan away 5mL
- Peppermint 5mL

- R.C. 5mL
- StressAway 5mL
- Thieves 5mL

- Valor 5mL
- Two Ningxia Packets
- Two Roller Blend Bottles
- Young Living Magazine
You will also receive Vitality Oils, which can be used in diffuser blends or in roller blends like the rest of your oils, but can also be ingested. These are the oils that come with white labels and are clearly marked as Vitality. A few drops of Peppermint VO in a cup of coffee or hot chocolate is like nothing else you’ll ever taste.
You can also read about each of these oils and how to use them through this Young Living guide as well. I plan on sharing how we use them at home in a future post. My friend, Katie, also gave me a pocket guide for lots of diffuser blends and references for uses on the go, which has been so resourceful!
THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER
Young Living also offers a Thieves cleaning line, which is some of the best I’ve seen in the market. I have been using mine for a little over a week now and it has become my go-to cleaner. You can clean glass, tables, countertops and much more.
Infused with Lemon, Orange, Zuzu and Tangerine Essential Oils, Ningxia Red is a delicious daily supplement that includes juices and extracts from super fruits such as arena, plum, blueberry, pomegranate and best of all, exotic Ningxia wolfberries.
This powerful little berry gets its name from the Ningxia region of China, where Young Living Founder and Chairman D. Gary Young first learned of its unparalleled nutritional profile. There, it’s known by locals as the wolfberry. In the West, however, many know it as the goji berry.
This delicious supplement packs a big punch, offering benefits that include support for normal eye health, cellular function, and energy levels. I have made popsicles, cocktails (yes, you read that right) and smoothies all with my Ningxia Red! It tastes amazing and you will quickly reap the benefits.
Essential Rewards Program
You will have the option to enroll in the essential rewards program when you first sign up with your starter kit. With that being said, it is in you best interest to do so.

As a preface, you do not have to “sell” oils if and when you sign up. This is meant to be a journey to help better your understanding of how to keep your body safe from harsh chemicals. If you find the opportunity to give out samples or talk with others about what Young Living has done for you, then do so!
I have found great support in the oily community since starting my Young Living journey last March. They are a company that proudly stands behind their product and has stood the test of time because of the validity of what they are preaching. Through the rabbit hole of Instagram, I was actually able to connect with an old sorority sister who is now living three states away! Overall, it has changed my thinking in how important it is to know what ingredients we putting in our bodies and to be cognisant of reading the ingredients list on labels.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to me! We are in this together to create community and share ideas with each other. I had bookoodles of questions when I first started and I am still learning new things every day.
