Our Essential Oils Journey

It’s 10:00am and I’ve used ten different essential oils in seven different ways.

I mixed some thieves, oregano, tea tree, and frankincense with a little jojoba oil and put it in a bottle with a roller cap for our feet. I call it the “boost immunity bottle.”

I put cinnamon and nutmeg in my morning coffee.

I used tea tree oil instead of deodorant.

I put Citrus Fresh in my water. I have had 40 ounces already!

I put Northern Lights Black Spruce on my super-dry, chapped-from-the-wind face.

I used Thieves mixed with a little water to clean my kitchen counter. It got up grease stains from the old tenant (gross!)

I put Citrus Fresh in some baking soda and water and scrubbed the bathtub. It had years of someone else’s old dirt caked to the bottom. I wish I had taken a picture before we left that stupid apartment … because that bathtub looked almost new!

When I bought my starter kit two months ago, I had no idea it would really change my life.

I’ve used essential oils for about five years now. We first began exploring them when I got pregnant, mostly for cleaning purposes – we wanted to rid our house of all the icky chemicals. I used various different brands – Auria Cacia, 365, Bulk Apothecary, and NOW were my three go-to oils. Mostly because I could buy them relatively inexpensively, and from what I could tell, they were good enough for what I was using them for. When I first started using essential oils, I had never heard of using them for health purposes.

Then we discovered that peppermint could help with my nausea. Grapefruit helped with the intense swelling that happened in my feet. Once A was born and began teething, we discovered that certain essential oils could help with the pain.

But it wasn’t until she was over two years old that I first heard of therapeutic grade essential oils. I had no idea there was a difference in the purity of essential oils. When I first saw the prices of these therapeutic grade oils, I balked … “but I can buy the same thing for a fraction of that cost – no way am I going down that route.”

And then … two years later … my sister jumped on board. My sister who hardly ever tried anything homeopathic … she started posting pictures of the essential oils she was using, and how they were helping her moods … how her kids were sleeping better … how they were recovering from illness faster …

This was all happening at the same time that my family had been sick for almost an entire month. It could have been because we were all experiencing major stress from moving from GA to MA. It could have been new germs that our bodies weren’t used to. Maybe it was because we were used to regular chiropractic adjustments and we hadn’t had one since we left our beloved chiropractor in Atlanta. Perhaps it was because our apartment was full of mold and dust and dirt and who knows what else. Regardless, I had had it. I sent her a text message late one night … “I need lavender and thieves and r.c. as soon as possible. How do I get them?” She told me the price of ordering them individually and I slightly hesitated. My doubt started again. And then she said, “Or you can get a kit for just a little bit more than that … all three oils are included, and you get a diffuser plus 8 more oils and a few samples to try out.”

So I did it. I followed in my younger sister’s lead and ordered the kit. And I kid you not … within one week … I was using those little essential oils in multiple ways every single day. I loved them so much I had used my small bottle of lavender and lemon within just a few weeks.

I was BLOWN AWAY by the difference in smell – and effectiveness – of the lavender that came in my kit when I compared it to the previous three brands that I had used.

And now, two months later, we are still learning about all the many things these essential oils can do for us. My husband isn’t suffering from allergies the way he used to. My girls aren’t being knocked down by colds – even when all the kids around them are. I am drinking more water than I have since I was pregnant for the first time (because I just didn’t do what I should have the second time around!) I am feeling more focused, more joyful, more healthy – in emotional ways, spiritual ways, and physical ways. I honestly just can’t believe the amazing benefits in these things … these tiny little bottles pack a big punch.

My favorite thing about these oils (besides what they are doing for us) is the amazing Seed to Seal promise that comes with them. This company has complete control over these oils … every single step of the way. I know, without a doubt, where they come from and how they get into the bottle and then into my home.

If you are curious about essential oils and how they can change your life, I invite you to invest in a starter kit. If you – like me – balk at the price, now’s your chance to get it for much less than ever before. Until the end of the month, all kits are 10% off. Because I believe they will impact you in great and wonderful ways, I’ll give you $20 back from your purchase – which means you can get it for $124. You guys … THAT’S AN AMAZING DEAL! Try it out – and you just might be surprised what a difference they make. If you don’t like them, you never have to order anything again.

Disclaimer: I do get a monetary incentive when you buy a kit from me; however, that’s not why I’m telling you about them. I genuinely believe they make a positive difference in our life – and I can’t wait to see what they do for you. It’s because of that belief, and my desire to help you live a happier, healthier life, that I am sharing my incentive with you.

You never have to sell essential oils once you buy a kit, but you always have the option to sell and receive incentives. I honestly never intended to “sell” kits – but I seriously love these oils so much I want to share them with everyone. If I could afford to buy everyone I know a kit, I would. Maybe one day …

    Ok seriously want to give oils a try but I feel like I would get a starter kit and have no clue where to start lol! Does it come with an owners manual?
