It all started from one FaceBook post.
Literally like a knock on the head.
I was scrolling through my newsfeed, when a picture caught my attention. It was a bottle of Thieves blend with a caption stating "Thank goodness for this Oil! It helped with both of my daughters upset stomachs!". Me being a germ-a-phobe I was immediately intrigued! An oil that may help strengthen their immune system? Whoa! Where can I get some of that!? (Thanks Lauren, I owe this all to you!) and the thought of diffusing Thieves with the aroma of a cinnamon clove paradise in the air around our home!? I was instantly addicted and started my research. Anyone that knows me will tell you I am the Queen of studying and reading on topics that peak my senses. I researched the Theives Blend first that led me to the Young Living web site (Thieves YL) along with many bloggers and other sources of abundant information. I then researched many different Oil companies. I conducted a personal comparison as to where the oils come from, how they are harvested, and if there were synthetics or pesticides used on the farms.
I could not wait until my kit arrived! I wanted to use the Thieves promptly on my oldest son, Breydan, who had been at the theme park all day touching everything in sight. Yuck! I wanted the Lavender to aide in restful nights sleep for all of us. Also to aide in my youngest son, Paris', nose congestion. My hubby, Lee, was super excited for the PanAway since he had a grueling workout and his hamstrings were super sore. And I wanted the StressAway as soon as possible to help calm my senses over the daily aspects of every day life! PHEW! Im telling you, these oils could not have arrived at my door any faster! I even planned out how I was going to hug the mailman when my door bell rang and it not be weird! lol. =)
Did you know there are over 200 verses in the Bible that mention the use of oil from the plants God has provided?
WOW. I am consistently amazed in Gods power. I mean come on, He knows what He is DOING!!
“Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.” Ezekiel 47:12 (KJV)
God has GIVEN us this oil. He has provided us with natural remedies. So many have not accessed these gifts and have shoveled right ahead to man-made medicines. Do not get me wrong, when modern medicine is needed, it should be implicated. I feel God wants us, our families and our children to remain in the healthiest conditions. This is my reason for starting this page! I love to share how these gifts have provided our family with healthier avenues in hopes to help others!
God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed,and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. Genesis 1:11-12
This is powerful. His plants are powerful. His oils are powerful. HE is powerful…..oh, and I love him!
To reap the benefits of the plants and the essence of their oils, they HAVE to be pure. They have to be clean of synthetic chemicals. They have to be harvested and distilled under strict guidelines. Like I stated above, there is only ONE oil company, ONE, that provides such circumstances. And yes my friends, that is Young Living. They have a strict Sead to Seal process that monitors and controls every aspect of producing these oils, so you know and can trust the oil you are using is the top of the line, purest therapeutic grade available. The majority of Oil companies sell oils adding additives, fragrances, etc… There is a difference. Know the difference. Trust Young Livings Seed to Seal.
