Why Young Living Oils?
Simple because of the QUALITY.
So here’s the scoop. After researching some oils are laced with synthetic fragrances that are not natural meaning you won’t reap the benefits of true essential oils. Synthetic oils in fact can do more damage to your body by using them because they can store toxins, unable to be released. Terrible oils can even be found in health food stores.
Some oils are watered down so you do need to use more which doesn’t end up being cost effective nor does it give essential oils a good name.
It’s one thing to make sure the oils you get are “pure” but any company can say that. It’s an entirely other thing to have the testing capability to ensure exact standards on the potency and therapeutic quality of all of the constitutes within the oils.
You can have a “pure oil” that wasn’t grown at the right pH or it was harvested too early and although that lavender (as an example) may smell amazing it has absolutely no therapeutic effect when you use it.
For over the 25 years of YL being in business, they have developed the largest library of Essential Oil samples for testing IN THE WORLD.
The reason this matters is because any company can claim they have the highest quality oils on the market but the only way they know is by testing their oils against their own library. Which no one has the size of library YL do for testing. So even if the tests they run on the lavender is pure high quality.. compared to WHAT?! They aren’t comparing it to anything other than their own products.
I trust YL oils because they have a seed to seal promise. This process ensures that every single process from picking the seeds to prepping the soil to harvest to distillation is done to our standards. So many people have said how quick and effective these oils have been for them. It’s really hard not to love their products!

I started with the QUEEN Aria diffuser, then jumped on our Essential Rewards Loyalty Program and got my Nature’s Home Bundle the next month. In two months I was well and truely on my way to ditching and switching all the toxins in my home.
What is Greenwashing?
I’ve always been a huge one for checking labels on food to make sure my family and I are not consuming any nasties. It wasn’t until I started exploring a chemical free laundry liquid for my daughters skin irritation issues was I aware of the word Greenwashing. So what is it?
Greenwashing is when a company or organisation spends more time and money on marketing themselves as environmentally friendly than on minimising their environmental impact. It is a deceitful advertising gimmick intended to mislead consumers who prefer to buy goods and services from environmentally conscious brands.
I was completely shocked and unaware of all the chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis in our cleaning and personal care products. I always assumed what I was buying at the grocery store, chemist or even health food store was safe. Products labelled as natural, organic and vegan still full of chemicals.
It really is easy to live a chemical free lifestyle using the amazing Thieves products that are all natural, plant based, chemical free and are super concentrated so last longer making going low tox cost effective.
