Denise's Oil Story
If you are here, it means that you are interested in finding out more about essential oils and their amazing benefits. First, let me tell you not to let the fear of the unknown deter you from trying something different!
I have been on my quest for alternative options for health and well-being for many, many years; and my one regret is that I was not introduced to Young Living Essential Oils sooner! I mean it! I kind of feel gypped acquiring this information as a grandmother. I could let myself boohoo about it, but it wouldn’t last very long because I would apply some Peace & Calming or Stress Away or Joy oil. No matter which one I chose, I’d be over my pity party in no time.
Anyway, I finally was introduced to YL oils when Dr. Edie showed up at my home one day after hearing that my daughter, Kelly, was suffering with a serious head cold, and I was battling a bit of holiday depression.
What? A doctor who makes house calls? I know. Seriously, we are blessed!
Edie brought a diffuser for us to borrow and loaded us up on Thieves, Purification, and Joy—as well as tea bags infused with oils; and our adventure began. Before she left, I handed her cash money and told her to sign me up—immediately! Looking back, it does sound a bit desperate and it doesn't really work that way, but what she shared resonated with my spirit so much.
I wish I could wow you by telling you that I was able to get off 15 medications since using oils, but the fact of the matter is that I have probably not taken 15 meds in my whole life. Sure, I have aches and pains that come with aging and from injuries resulting from things that I should have had better sense than to try at my age—and I do treat those things with oils—but using oils for those kinds of things is not my oh-my-goodness testimony. My oh-my-goodness testimony is very simple:
Daily application and diffusing of Young
Living Essential Oils make me a happier person.
And why wouldn’t they? Essential oils are one of God’s incredible gifts to us. They work in harmony with His design and support our bodies and spirits in incredible ways. And most of them smell divine.
So, if you are ready to give oils a try, then you’ve come to the right place. Everything you need to know to get started on your journey to happy and healthy can be found right here. We've included links to some of our favorite resources. We also have a great Facebook group that promotes a sense of community and provides encouragement every step of the way.

Kelly's Oil Story
We are no strangers to medical issues, sports injuries, and grief (and all that comes with it), but we have always pursued a natural remedy before running to modern medicine. In December of 2014, I was suffering from a long-lasting cold that just wasn’t getting better. My body was worn down and was having trouble doing its job of healing. Our Oily Sisterhood founder, Dr. Edie, showed up at my door with a diffuser and an arsenal of essential oils to that support the immune system. I quickly got better, and I was hooked. And frankly, if all it did for me was smell therapy that would be enough. But it did more.
The more classes I attended, the more I
realized the healing properties the oils held.
There is the reason God gave them to us. There was a reason Frankincense and Myrrh were brought to Mary. These oils are as natural as they come, and I can't believe it took me so long to find them--or for them to find me! There were so many times over the years that my family could have benefitted from the added support of essential oils.
Just in case you were thinking I'm totally crazy, I want you to know that I'm not anti-medicine. My youngest has to take medicine for his heart everyday. Our bodies are amazing, though, and designed for healing, but so often our first response is to reach for drugs. How much better it is to support our systems instead of suppressing them.
And don’t get me started on the journey of grief. It is amazing to me the ability a drop of Joy has made on my mental state. Rubbing it on my heart has turned many of my days around. Life will always be hard, but that drop reminds me of the joy I have in the Lord.

We are blessed to have Dr. Edie right around the corner and have attended many classes with her. If you can't make it to a live class, you must watch this!
If you want to know the basics, click here. This will take you to Dr. Edie's website that she has set up for all the folks in her group, the Oily Sisterhood. You will find interesting information like this:
"One of the most powerful properties of essential oils is that they are small enough to cross the blood brain barrier and are able to have a wonderful, balancing effect on our emotions. Our sense of smell in inextricably intertwined with our memory and emotions and essential oils can play an integral part in healing painful emotional experiences, which makes these oils uniquely able to heal us from the inside out because of the key role emotions can often play in illness."
If that has piqued your interest, Dr. Edie has also created a FREE 14-Day E-Course! Yes it is FREE!
We include links to a lot of Dr. Edie's stuff because she is so smart, and we are so blessed to have her as our mentor. There really is no reason for us to reinvent the wheel, especially when we could not do it any better! Kelly and I are happy to answer any of your questions personally, however, and you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or send us a Facebook message.
How much does it cost? It costs $160 (plus tax and shipping) for all those products you see pictured above. And here is where I tell you to think in terms of worth, not cost! Purchasing a Premium Starter Kit is the best investment you can make for your wellness journey! With it comes a wholesale membership in Young Living which allows you to purchase all products at a 24% discount!
How much do I have to spend each month? You are only required to purchase $50 a year to keep your account active.
How can I get those free oils everyone is always posting about? Young living offers a program, Essential Rewards, that gives us back a percentage of what we spend in product credit if we purchase $50 a month--which is so easy and fun to do. Also, they offer promos every month for spending certain amounts--which is also easy and fun to do. I love trying new oils each month and replacing the ones I run out of because of my oil addiction!
What if the oils don't work for me?
I have a video for that.
