I honestly was skeptical about essential oils.  I felt that something so simple just could not be that effective in that many ways.

How did you decide to start using essential oils and become a Young Living member?

I was finally convinced by a friend to just give them a try.  I love natural remedies and our family really needed help with focusing during home school.  I researched a couple oils companies and felt that Young Living had the longest track record.  More of my friends use Young Living than other brands and for many reasons it just felt like a more solid fit.

What are your favorite essential oils or products? How do you use them?

We love lavender for bedtime for the kids.  I feel it helps them settle better even after a long day and I recommend it to just about anyone with children or even adults that have a hard time settling.  My personal  favorite is Valor for my husband.  He has always snored.  We have tried all kinds of natural, over the counter, and ever prescription medications.  Most resulted in no major change.  He puts a dab of Valor on his temples and on his feet and from the very first night he simply stopped snoring.  We both had a better night’s sleep.  We fall asleep faster and wake up with more energy because we both are not tossing and turning.  He had been using Valor for about a week with NO snoring when I decided I had to sell oils!  I know everyone has unique reasons why they snore, but this worked so well for him and it is what made him a believer in oils too.
