I heard about essential oils for the first time from my husband actually a couple of years ago. They sounded awesome - right up my alley. Oil that is extracted from countless different botanicals and can be used for healing, in cooking, or even authentically all natural cleaning products? It's been on my TO DO list to start experimenting with essential oils for a long time, but I've had babies to raise, careers to grow, and a million other projects/distractions.
So, I've got this friend who's super into Essential Oils and always posting on Facebook about the amazing healing properties; she uses it for her families entire wellness plan. I finally reached out to her the other day and asked for her to sign me up! I signed up as a "Member" because then you get like a 24% discount over buying retail! Something like 80% of people who sign up as Young Living Members are using it as a personal account only.
I'm happy to share my sign up link if you'd like to buy a Premium Starter Package of oils at 24% off! If you sign up for a membership under my Sponsor and Enroller ID bit.ly/YoungLivingAmber you also join my community of oil enthusiasts. I'm super into the oils and will be posting a ton of resources, information, tips & tricks along the journey. I'll also give you my favorite book about how to use oils and a small gift pack to all new members.
I love natural organic cooking. I've already made all my cleaning products from scratch - but some were better than others. I've heard Thieves oil is unparalleled in effectiveness. I'm waiting for my "Thieves Premium Package" to arrive any day. So stand by as I share my journey into the world of Essential Oils. I can't wait to get started... I'm definitely going to start with cooking. I love cooking. I've got a lot of reading to do! I'll summarize and share the best things I learn.
My son had RSV as a baby/toddler and today is borderline Asthma. He gets wheezy anytime his allergies flare up or he gets a cold. We've got a nebulizer and we give him Albuterol treatments whenever it flares up. When you read the "precautions disclaimer" on Albuterol it makes me uncomfortable to give to my son (it has made his heart speed up and a little shaky). Well essential oils can be used as a natural preventative treatment so that he never has to deal with wheezing "flare ups" again. I'll give you all the details in a future post!
One last thing I wanted to share- I've got a ton of bottles coming and I want something to keep them organized (and pretty). I found a storage cabinet on Craigslist (see photos below) and asked my husband if he could make it for me. He's very handy and said he'd be willing to make more if I wanted to post it online. So I set up a little Etsy shop UrbanFamilyHomestead and posted the cabinet options there. You're welcome to order if it's something you'd like - just LMK which size cabinet you prefer!
