So I'm the family skeptic and hold out when it comes to using Young Living's essential oils. My sister-in-law got into it several years ago and they use them for everything. Even my mom and my dad signed up to become a distributor. But still, I questioned them. Do they really work and why should I try them?
So several things kept popping up in my Facebook feed about diffusing essential oils in the classroom and I read a few of them. I decided to give them a try. My mindset was if they smell good and the side effect is focus and a healthier classroom, what could it hurt? So my dad hooked me up with a diffuser, peppermint, thieves, and citrus fresh to give it a try. Immediately my kids started telling me they use them at home and different students asked what the scent was for the day. They really liked it.
I've been using them at school for about a month and I started feeling better. I found that I wasn't having as many headaches as usual and the room smelled great. I even tried diffusing some at home. My husband, Chris, has terrible sinus problems and gets stopped up really bad at night when he lays down. I diffused a little peppermint and R.C. to see if it would help. He was as skeptic as I was. But to our amazement, he said he felt like it did help him to be able to breathe a little better than he could without it.
I think the kicker was when he had a bump come up on his neck. He said it was hurting really bad so I told him, "You're going to think I'm crazy, but..." and I talked him into letting me put a little Purification on it that night. When he woke up the next morning he said it was almost gone and didn't even hurt anymore. Wow! So we signed up to become distributors. We have jumped on the bandwagon of Young Living Essential Oils.
We were the ones who said "Sure they will" or "That's crazy" but I must say we have been proven wrong. Now we are diffusing essential oils at home too. I diffuse Lavender at night and sleep like a rock.

My favorites are Peppermint, Citrus Fresh, Cinnamon Bark, Orange, and Thieves. If you sign up to become a distributor you can order oils at wholesale cost and you only have to buy $50 a year to keep your membership active. There are no monthly minimums and you get the oils at cost. Which is great if you are using them on a regular basis. I started with the Premium Starter Kit, which is $150 (and you get about $300 worth of stuff). It gets you a home diffuser and an assortment of oils to start with.
