YEARS IN THE MAKING…
It’s been years of discussions and lots of work, but Young Living is finally available to the incredible country of South Africa! This company that has created life impacting wellness products and has been the catalyst for so much change is available to the wonderful people of South Africa. This page has been created as a resource to learn about what essential oils can do for you and your family, help you know the ordering specifics, and to help you see what wellness, purpose and abundance can be found when partnering with this company and mission!
WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?
This sums it up well for me!
“My Young Living Starter Kit didn’t change my life. The oils and the diffuser didn’t change my life. (Well, that’s not entirely accurate because when we used the oils and the diffuser, our kids slept better…and if you have kids you KNOW that sleeping kids is LIFE CHANGING ). But that Young Living Starter Kit changed my approach to life. The impact that the Starter Kit had on my own family forced me to do more research, learn more, and then once I KNEW better, I DID better. Young Living empowered me to be the hero of my own story.”
HOW DO I USE THEM?
You can use them three ways.
Topically – You can dilute with a carrier oil like jojoba, coconut or grapeseed oil according to the bottle’s directions and apply where needed. Application of oils to the feet is a great place to apply your oils.
Aromatically – One of the easiest ways to reap the benefits of the aromatic qualities of an essential oil is simply by opening it up or putting a drop or two in my wrists, rubbing them together, and giving a little sniff.
The most common and my favorite way of using oils aromatically is by putting them in a diffuser. Diffused oils alter the structure of molecules that create odors, rather than just masking them. They also increase oxygen availability, produce negative ions, and release natural ozone.
Internally – Many choose to use them sublingually under their tongue, internally with capsules or in their water. We’ve had some incredible stories in our house with this use!
WHY QUALITY MATTERS
There is much information out there explaining the difference between therapeutic grade essential oils and all of the other oils out there on the market. It gets hard to filter, and I often feel like the things I am reading are written by people with an agenda! Here is a brief breakdown of why I believe Young Living is a cut above.
95% of oils out there on the market are not therapeutic grade, but rather produced for the food and fragrance industry. Companies are cutting corners on production to try to produce more oils, and the methods they are using are either releasing toxins into the oil, destroying some of the important compounds necessary in therapeutic grade oils. I cringe when I see $3 bottles of Frankincense at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Target. Ya’ll that is not there to help your health!
“100% pure” doesn’t necessarily mean that it will have therapeutic properties. When a company says its oils are “pure” that only means that the oil does not contain a base oil or some other essential oil — that is: that it’s not cut. The question of whether or not the essential oil is tainted with chemicals or solvents is not even considered.
When you see a bottle on the shelf that says “100% pure,” that doesn’t mean that that bottle contains only essential oil. It’s an unregulated industry which means it’s up to you to do the research on what’s going on your body. JUST like we need to do for our soap, our detergent, our cleaner and everything else that comes through the door of our house! That’s how companies are selling these oils at such reduced prices! Unfortunately, when it comes to essential oils, you really do get what you pay for.
Even if an oil is truly 100% pure and organic, you want to be sure that the oils were harvested and distilled correctly! Companies will distill a plant more than once to get as much oil as possible out of a plant which allows for more quality, but produces a poorer quality oil. Think about making coffee with grounds that have already been filtered once! There’s a big difference! Also, you have no clue about if those plants were harvested at the appropriate time or distilled long enough. If you are wanting to buy oils for therapeutic purposes, it is VERY important to be aware of how intentional a company is in their process! They should be publishing their standards. Transparency is key! Watch our for trademarked phrases or greenwashing words like “all natural” and “100% pure.”
WHAT CAN ESSENTIAL OILS DO FOR MY FAMILY?
I think the better question is what can they NOT do! There is an oil to support every single system in your body from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes. They support the emotions, the skin, the larger systems, the smaller systems, the organs, and everything you can think of. Here are just some of the things that have happened in our home with essential oils..
- Sleeping better
- Managing emotions better – this is a REAL thing ya’ll
- Magic for tummy aches
- Decreasing tension in the neck and head area
- Better workouts

You name it, essential oils help. If you’ve ever seen the saying “there’s an oil for that”, it’s really really true.
