Curious about the Essential Oils I use?

Essential oils are nothing new, but I was introduced to these particular essential oils by kindred mama (who also has 4 boys and one girl and homeschools!), Kirsten. She has such a passion for educating people on the quality and purity of essential oils and teaches mamas everywhere how to use them to keep their families healthy.

Essential oils are fascinating – I mean, how on earth could a sniff of this or a rub of that help to improve my family’s health or wellbeing? But before I explain why essential oils are so great, you might be wondering what they actually are!

Get Started


Essential oils are the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. They’re basically concentrated herbs! They contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodies’ health and wellness. There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Bergamot and Eucalyptus to unusual and exotic ones like Petitgrain and Spikenard, there’s an unfathomably huge range to choose from – and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses.

I’m no scientist (and you probably aren’t either), so I’ll explain how essential oils have helped my loved ones and me… I have a LOT going on – which you’ll already know if you’re a regular follower! Lavender is my go-to for balance: it relaxes me, calms me down, and takes the edge off my worries.

I also combine Lavender with Lemon and Peppermint to support healthy breathing, throughout the year.  Peppermint gets used during homeschool time too: we put it in the diffuser in the dining room where we work, and it helps us all focus so much better and enjoy what we’re working on.

Those are just three examples, but essential oils have also replaced many everyday products that I used to spend a fortune on. I now clean my home with oil-infused natural cleaners rather than toxic chemicals from the supermarket, for example. I cleanse my face with oil-infused natural products too. And everyone in the family benefits from using calming essential oils in the diffuser before bedtime!

In my opinion, no. I’ve done a lot of research into this and there’s one particular brand that stands head and shoulders above the rest: Young Living.

Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah

There are many reasons why this brand is so great, but here are my three favorites:

One of the most important things I’ve learned in my journey to healthy living is that it’s not just what something is  it’s where it comes from, how it’s grown, and how it’s processed. Whether it’s blueberries fresh from the farm, or a soft organic t-shirt, I know that the source matters.

 I did many hours of research to find an essential oil company that I felt I could trust with my family’s health. Young Living is that company: they truly care about quality.

 To ensure the purity of their oils, the team at Young Living set the highest standards for planting, harvesting, and distilling on the farms they own and co-op. And if I’m going to be putting products on my family’s skin and around our home, I want to know they’re pure and unadulterated!
