Do or Don’t Part 1: My Personal Stance on Internal Usage of Essential Oils

I want to start out this post by saying I love Young Living Essential Oils. I love the oils, and I love the people I have come in contact with since joining. I love the global vision the company has and I believe they truly have a heart for helping people.

But I feel like I would not be staying true to myself and my beliefs if I did not make my personal stance on the internal usage of essential oils known.

Short version: I do not recommend it. Until you yourself know enough about essential oils AND are under the care of a licensed natural medicine practitioner or aromatherapist, please do not ingest or drink.

Long version: Here is the long version.πŸ™‚ Lea’sΒ website has been extremely helpful to me while I have been using EOs. I recommend this website to anyone who contacts me about essential oils. I will say, they tend to be anti-MLM (so anti-Young Living and anti-DoTerra), but I do believe the information presented is sound and helpful. You will notice that this link does give guidance for ingesting essential oils. I do believe it is important to know how it works and how to safely ingest, even if I do not personally recommend casual ingestion.

Just a note: Knowledge of ingestion of essential oils goes hand in hand with knowledge of sensitization to essential oils. (I have first-hand experience with sensitization. I used a natural deodorant with grapefruit EO. Because I used it everyday, I started having itching and burning under my arms when I applied it. Even after not using it for a few weeks, the itching and burning started right back the first time I used it again. I know it was the grapefruit EO, because I had another jar of the same brand that had all the same ingredients except grapefruit EO. I can, and still, use that one just fine.) You can read more about sensitization here.

All that being said, I cannot tell you how to use your essential oils. I am not trained to do so. I am trained to sell them to you and give you safety information.πŸ™‚ Since I am trained to sell you a a safe product, I will tell you to learn about essential oils, research all you can, and use them as you need, safely. Passing on the info I have learned, especially from Learning About EOs, is the best way I know to do that. Please take a look at the site and take in the information presented there. Then, go out and get some books on EO usage and safety. Talk to a licensed aromatherapist or natural medicine doctor. Expand your mind on how to use these powerful, potent substances that we have been blessed with.

Again, I love Young Living and prefer them over any other brand I have used. I believe their heart is to truly care for people and provide them with a safe, effective, and premium product.

Update on Life and November Young Living Freebies!

Hi!

So, it’s been a while since I have posted. Things have been a bit crazy.πŸ™‚ My newest little one was due November 5th. If you read my last post, you know that we had a bit of a preterm labor scare that resulted in a stay in the hospital for a few days.

Well, that was just the beginning. On October 11th, we were back at the hospital at 2:30 that morning. I was in labor again, but this time, baby was transverse, coming feet first, with the possibility of cord prolapse. We were not leaving there without a baby. After talk of a possible c-section, breech birth, and version, we went with the version to turn the baby head down (if that did not work, we were going to try for turning him breech and deliver him breech.) But, the head-down version worked. That happened at about 10am and at 9:20pm, Oliver entered the world just like I knew he would. Kicking and screaming.Β So the last month when I had been expecting to be pregnant, I have been taking care of my little one.

I haven’t done a lot with keeping up with Young Living until this month. And I am glad I did! There are some great freebies this month! This would be a perfect time to join as a distributor and start up your Essential Rewards.

First off, there is a new Premium Starter Kit! This one includes the Rainstone Diffuser!

Also, the freebies for 190 PV and over orders are awesome!

YLNovFreebies

Just want to touch on this again. See the ER Exclusive item in the graphic above? Well, you only get that for free if you place your 190 PV or more order through Essential Rewards. And what is Essential Rewards? Just about the best thing about joining Young Living!

For most products you order, you get points. Most items have a point value. When you order through Essential Rewards, you get the products you order, plus any freebies you qualify for PLUS points to use on future orders for MORE FREE STUFF!!!

If you want more details on Essential Rewards, or just on joining Young Living in general, feel free to email me at theoilydrop@gmail.com.

My Unexpected Hospital Stay (And Shamelessly Asking for Help.)

So earlier this week, I spent 3 days in the hospital, thinking I was going to deliver baby #3 five weeks early. I was in full-blown labor. Praise the Lord my labor stopped and he decided to bake a little while longer.πŸ™‚

OctSale

I will admit, the main purpose of this post is to promote my Etsy shop. Along with the unexpected hospital stay came unexpected expenses and we are running short on gas money for my husband to get to work and grocery money just for things like milk, until the end of the month. If you know anyone at all who would be interested in purchasing some diffuser jewelry, would you please direct them to my Etsy shop? I have a few pieces that are ready to ship and can take many made to order orders. I also have gift certificates available. (30% discount is not valid on gift certificates.)

Here is the link to my shop and a coupon code you can pass on for 30% off your entire order, no minimum purchase required.

If you don’t mind my shameless begging and don’t mind to pass this on, I would be very grateful.πŸ™‚

Blessings!

New Month, New Promo!

Been a little while since I have posted. September was a little bit of an up and down month for me. Oliver has one more month in the oven, and last month he was wearing me out! But I think with the changing of the season, he has settled down and getting ready to face life on the outside with a big sister and a big brother.πŸ™‚

So since it is a new month and we are in autumn and coming up on holidays, my sign-up perks are going to reflect that.πŸ™‚ For the first 3 people who sign up in October with any Premium Starter Kit (PSK), they will get a 5ml bottle of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil from me for FREE!

CinnamonBark

(Anyone who signs up with a PSK after the first 3, or signs up with a Basic Starter Kit will get their choice of 3 Sheets of Oil Bottle Cap labels, or a 10pk of Aromaglide Fitments.)
