Hi. I have been on Spark for several years, but never thought of finding a team on essential oils and herbs until I saw someone else on an essential oils team. So looked for one that would fit me and found this one. I have been a YL distributor for several years but don't know enough about them to really introduce people to them and am always trying to find out more. Actually became a distributor because of needing help for a dog that was almost killed by his nephew.

I have also been growing my own herbs for several years, though this year I only have a few. I planted mint last year in an area where nothing else grows and it has come back up this year - peppermint, chocolate mint, and orange mint. I also have basil and lemon grass in pots and thyme out front where a guy who was supposed to help with my yard dumped a pot that had thyme in it the year before. That is spreading out in the yard and I am having to mow around it.

I would like to see how people are using them to help with their Spark People journey and what EOs they like.

Hi! I've been using EOs for about a year. A friend introduced me to them and since then I have been reading and studying up as much as I can on how to safely incorporate them into my life and my household, but know I have a lot more to learn!

Hi everyone, my name is Laura from Traverse City, Michigan and got my Young Living Starter Kit and diffuser! Love it! Just used some Panaway on my sore neck/shoulder - wonderful! I've been studying all of the neat videos on their website, but I have been using essential oils for a few years and just found this team! Take care and healthy living!

Hi I just started using Young Living essential oils and am loving them! With my starter kit I got Thieves laundry detergent and tried it and love it! I have been using lavender in my diffuser as well as purification and I even tried Frankenscence once. I am concerned about my health and recently was diagnosed with HPV from two bad pap smears. I think my ex-husband gave it to me a long time ago in my 20s. I'm 41 now. I had to have 2 biopsies done with a colposcopy. Thankfully everything came out benign. I am having a wart looked at on Monday but I have been using Frankensence on it. It seems to help. I have also started taking 2 to 3 drops (trying to stick to 2 but sometimes that extra drop comes out) of Thieves in my tea at night. Yesterday I grabbed a glass of water and put Lemon in it and loved it! I can't wait until I get November's order and get the Lavender shampoo to try on my psoriasis. I read that it helps? Can't wait to get my October order either because I can use the Thieves to clean with the household cleaner and the bar soap. So I can stop using Irish Spring! Really excited to be joining this group!

Hi, I am new to essential oils so any information for me would be great. I have been using Lavender to help me sleep, and I use EO often for natural cleaning products, but besides that I do not know to much.

Regarding my weight loss, I have 100 lbs to lose, so I am going to be here for quite some time. Yikes! But on the positive side it will bring me to be healthy as I right now am aching all over, sleepless nights and it is hard to be in the up and up, but again I am not giving up as I am going to be a grandmother very soon (two to three weeks) yeh. Oh by the way it is a girl. Will keep you up-to-date.


I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Greetings Everyone! emoticon

I am a Massage Therapist and was actually introduced to Young Living Essential Oils at my first place of employment as an LMT. I had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2012 as I was earning my MT license and one of the LMTs I worked with started using Thieves on me when we worked together. It would help with some of the swelling and discomfort and I was impressed - until she told me how much a bottle cost! Then I was not as impressed.

Fast forward another 2 years and now the studio I work for uses YLEOs with the massage sessions. One of the first few months I worked for them I took an Aromatherapy Class with the lady who is their in-house YLEO go-to-gal and after learning much more about Young Living and how they strive to keep their product as pure as possible I was impressed once again. I even managed to save enough tips to buy a bottle of Thieves and begin using it again.

I have yet to save the $150 to buy the starter kit with the oils & diffuser and such, but I know I will sooner than later!

Looking forward to learning more from all of you! emoticon

In Gratitude, Love & Light,
Chrissi emoticon

Hello, my name is Stephanie, I have been on and off SparkPeople for a few years and it feels good to be back. I got started with doTerra essential oils a few months ago. It's so great to find a group of people with similar interests, and super great to see a few familiar people in this group! I look forward to exchanging ideas and getting to know each other. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello! I started with YL Oils about 6 or 8 months ago. My goal is to get off of all prescription meds, which at one time was up to 12 a day. I'm down to 6, but I have to get my cholesterol and triglyceride levels down in the next 60 days to convince the doc that I mean business. I've been with SparkPeople for years, but have been inactive for way too long. But I'm back, looking for a new me!

Hello My name is Deanna and I just joined Young Liviing yesterday and awaiting my starter kit. I too also hope there are team members here that can give me advice and offer discussion. I am looking to essential oils for relief of post workout pain and something to help me sleep. I work nights so hard time sleeping during the day. I am hoping I find some great benefits of these essential oils

Hi all! Not sure why I didn't think sooner to look for essential oils on here and I hope someone is still around who wants to talk about them.

I joined Young Living back in August after taking a few months for my friend to convince me to do that instead of just getting a bottle here & there. My son & I have seen so many benefits since my joining: got over our fall allergies much quicker than usual, he's able to heal from injuries during basketball much quicker, I've had less trouble with my back, and so many other things.

Libilou, isn't the lemon/lavender/peppermint blend wonderful? That's what we diffused during ragweed season and, in two days, got to the point that usually takes two weeks.

hugs,
Dawn

Hello, my name is Libi. I started to really use essential oils this year when I developed an allergy to my allergy meds. I cannot take anything that's OTC and I'm not willing to do a steroid shot. I turned to oils after a friend told me about a combination that works. I take 3-5 drops of lemon, lavender and peppermint each morning and night (when I remember). Honestly, it works faster and better than an OTC, in my opinion.

I also keep a humidifier going and put eucalyptus oil in the well. Tonight I also added lemon and wow! My sinuses are sure clearing up fast!

I would love any other recommendations.

emoticon Hi. My name is Melanie. I have been a SparkPeople user for a a few years now. I started using Young Living EOs about 6 months ago. I love how there is always something to help so many issues. And I am learning more every day. Even my kids and my husband have gotten on board and ask where my "oil bag" is when they don't feel good. I love going natural. :-)

Hi I am Sarah and just got introduced to Young Living Essential Oils from my massage therapist. I am a registered nurse, so at first I was a bit skeptical, but I have found them tremendously helpful. I am trying to get back to taking better care of my body, mind, and spirit and love the oils to complement my journey.

I just started using essential oils and love them. But I have been growing and using my own herbs for a few years now. I have tons of fun with that and advice too if needed.
