One of the biggest reasons, I started to use essential oils was because I deal with pain or hearing about "pain or being sore" every time I step on the yoga mat to teach. I was looking for a product that I could trust to use with clients that I knew would work successfully and naturally.
I'm asked a lot why I chose Young Living over many other essential oils, products, supplements, you name and I'll tell you why; "Seed to Seal." From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, Young Living applies the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended. Read more below on the process the oils undergo in order to pass the quality guarantee!
Knowing that the product that I was using on clients, myself, and my own family had this guarantee was a huge selling point for me. Unlike oils that I had previously purchased in natural food markets, I could tell as soon as I opened these oils that they were high quality.
Never tried or used essential oils before? Let's put it like this. Have you ever eaten pancakes with a low quality syrup and then tasted pancakes with a high quality syrup? Can you tell which one actually comes from a tree? The content is broken down, it still may taste like syrup, but there is a huge difference in taste, texture, feel, as well as additives that are hard to digest and break down in your stomach. Essential oils through Young Living are tested, sealed, and therapeutic grade, so the quality is the best and will work much more effectively than brands that may be found cheaper in a natural food store at a lower price that have been broken down or claim to be "pure" when they are not.
Here's a recipe using two of the oils that come in the Premium Starter Kit to help aid in pain reduction
My favorite use for clients that complain about "pain" is to give them a natural and homemade "Pain Cream" using three of the best essential oils (PanAway, Peppermint, and Valor) for relief.
Pain Cream1/2 cup coconut oil
10 drops of each:
Panaway (included in Premium Starter Kit)
Peppermint (included in Premium Starter Kit) Do you still have added inflammation?
Try Copaiba alone with a carrier oil or add 10 drops of lemon grass essential oil.
