Hey friends! My name is Brittany and I am SO excited to share a little bit of my journey with you! It brings my heart so much joy to have the opportunity to connect with others so thank you for being here!! 

- The Day I Had My “What Do I Have To Lose” Moment:Estrogen tumor...perimenopause....ovarian cancer....polycystic ovarian syndrome....infertility potential....thyroid dysfunction....” I’m 25yrs old listening to my gynecologist rattle off these possibilities at an apt I’d scheduled after missing my cycle for the 6th month in a row after 3yrs of extreme inconsistency. My husband and I weren’t trying to conceive. I wasn’t able to lose weight (regardless of healthy lifestyle changes), I was tired ALL the time, and dealt with mood swings like no other. These were issues I’d never had before, and birth control only seemed to make everything worse (no matter which one I tried). 

Long story short...this is what kick-started my decision to look into all-natural products vs. signing up to take synthetic medications so early on in my life.  Moment of Truth If you’re anything like I was, you probably roll your eyes when someone starts to share how many chemicals and toxins are in our daily products and foods. If I’m being 100% honest...I kind of thought it was unavoidable and couldn’t imagine that anything on the shelves could be “that bad.”  Until I did my own research, I was 1000% the eye roller in the room during any “toxin-free” conversation. To say I was skeptical is an understatement...but when I started to truly look at what was in the products I was putting on and in my body, I knew I wanted to make some changes. 

Regardless, I still had no idea what oils even were (Ha!) if that’s you then don’t worry, you’re in good company!  Oils & the Bible 

So, what are essential oils?  An essential oil is plant juice. It’s the best part of the plant that has been extracted in a highly concentrated form.  For all my fact lovers out there, when a leaf rips or tears, the oil within the plant is what helps it heal itself. So cool, right?! Oils are truly a gift from God. He gave us all we need to sustain & heal ourselves both physically & mentally through both the power of the Holy Spirit & through all He has provided for us on Earth.  “But the river itself, on both banks, will grow fruit trees of all kinds. Their leaves won’t wither, the fruit won’t fail. Every month they’ll bear fresh fruit because the river from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing. “ Ezekiel 47:12  Products I’ve Been Using:

Most of these oils have mult. uses...but today I’m sharing the #1 reason I’ve used each: 🌿 Progessence Plus - hormone support  🌿 Sclaressence - hormone & mood support  🌿 Bergamot - hormone & mood support  🌿 Endoflex - Thyroid support  🌿 Geranium - hormone support  🌿 Clary Sage - hormone support  🌿 Myrrh - hormone support  🌿 Frankincense - too many uses to list  🌿 Ylang Ylang - mood & hormone support  🌿 Ninjaxia Antioxidant & Vitamin Essential Oil Infused Drink (one of my greatest game changers!) 🌿 Peppermint - digestion & headaches  🌿 Lemon + Grapefruit + Peppermint - Metabolism Support  🌿 Lavender - they call this the Swiss Army knife of oils...I’ve used for sleep support, I’ve used it in an allergy relief blend, sunburns, anything skin related.  My husband and I have also switched out all of our cleaning supplies, toothpaste, detergents, make-up, skincare, soaps, etc., and have used many oils not included in this list. Switching & ditching has actually helped save us money and has given us peace of mind that we know what we are putting in and on our bodies...and it’s all coming from the same place.  Why the Cost?   Integrity & Quality

Other oil companies pay to use pesticides and chemicals to weed and tend to their plant farms. When chemicals are used in the soil...the oil that is extracted is compromised and is no longer pure.

YL pays thousands & thousands of dollars per acre to employ people to personally tend to their plants so that they can maintain 100% clean soil. All Young Living Farms have 50yr+ clean chemical free soil.  Doing things this way costs more money, therefore, you’ll pay more...but you’re also receiving purity which means the product will last so much longer.  Just because an oil has “Therapeutic Grade” on it does not mean it is 100% pure oil. My challenge to you would be to research for yourself other companies statements that have been released admitting that they do in fact dilute their oils even after advertising otherwise.

I would also advise you to take a bottle of YL oil & smell it side by side with an oil bottle from another company. You’ll notice the difference in purity right away. Young Living is the ONLY oil company that welcomes you to go visit their farms. That kind of transparency allows me to trust in their products. 

Thank you to every single one of you for reading my story. I didn’t start using these products with intent to sell or distribute them. But, after experiencing their benefits, my husband and I were floored and just started sharing what we learned with others around us. 

Part of our mission statement as a couple is to allow God to use us to help others in any way that will bring Him glory & He has used this company to help us connect with others in new ways.  Unlike many other MLMs...YL has products that I’ll use for the rest of my days. They won’t go out of style or lose their importance.  For example...I will never reach for OTCs again when I have a headache because I have peppermint. I’ll never buy chemical cleaning products again because I know I can rely on my toxin free Thieves cleaner. 

Everyone can benefit from something that YL has to offer & at the end of the day my heart is to serve others. YL provides another avenue for my life to be used for His glory & the journey has been so sweet already.
