A Healthier Lifestyle

Hi there!

I’m going to give you the low-down on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Don’t worry, I’ll make it quick!

When my husband and I got married I weighed 103 pounds. I’m barely 5’2 so that is what I should have weighed. I was that weight regardless of what I ate or what exercise I did. Then I had children – three of them. They are the lights of my life. 

However, with those three pregnancies, I gained 15 pounds with each child. That’s a whopping 45 pounds if you’re counting! Not only that, but I was 41 when I had my last child and the “after 40” weight gain started creeping on me. Before I knew it, I was 50 years old and I weighed in at a hefty 167 pounds! 

Out of nowhere, a 43-year-old business acquaintance of my husband dropped dead of a heart attack walking home from work one day. He left behind a widow and four young children. 

When that happened, I knew it was time to rethink my lifestyle. I started running, eating more fruits and vegetables, less sugar and less meat. I’ve lost 30 pounds so far and I intend to lose another 30 over the next year.

I started reading books like Blue Zones by Dan Buettner. I enrolled in a Doctor of Naturopathy program to learn more about natural ways to keep my family healthy and am now a Certified Natural Health Professional.

I never intended to hang out a shingle and take on clients. I’m a writer and that’s my passion. I just wanted to help my family live a more natural, healthy lifestyle. I mean do you KNOW how many toxic chemicals are in your cabinets and daily-use products? Go check out the ingredients in your laundry detergent, shampoo, body lotion, makeup, etc.. You’ll be as shocked as I was.

And for those of you who think, “Oh, none of that stuff can get in through your skin!” Think again, my friends! How do you think those nicotine patches and birth control patches work? That’s right, that medicine is absorbed through you skin and straight into your bloodstream to be carried all over your body.

When I started this path five years ago, a good friend introduced me to Young Living essential oils. At first, I was just looking to see what all the bell ringing was about then I discovered that these oils actually work! These products help keep me and my family above the wellness line naturally. 

To be honest, when I first started using essential oils, I really did not understand anything about them. I was clueless when people were talking about frequencies of the oils.

What the heck did that mean … frequencies???

Now that I’ve been through my Naturopathic classes, I completely understand all about energy, frequencies and vibrations.

The way my instructor explained it was this, if God spoke everything into existence and speech is just a vibration, doesn’t it follow that everything would have a vibration or frequency of it’s own?

With that in mind, I have an entirely new appreciation for these oils by Young Living. Each oil, like the plants they come from, has its own frequency or energy.

Here are just a few things these oils can help with:

  • sleep like a baby
  • promote clear & healthy (and, ahem, maturing) skin
  • support healthy respiration
  • boost our moods
  • soothe sore muscles
  • promote calmness and relaxation
  • clean naturally with toxin-free products
  • detox our home, personal care and beauty supplies
  • beautifully scent the air
  • and promote overall wellness

Not too bad, right?

To be honest, I didn’t just dive in all at once. I took baby steps and gradually replaced the chemical-filled stuff in our cleaning and medicine cabinets with their natural, health-supporting counterparts from Young Living:

  • We ditched the toxins in our personal care and makeup products.
  • No more petrochemicals in my family’s lotions, or parabens in my makeup.
  • No more fretting when we needed to soothe sore muscles or promote healthy sleep.
  • We’ve found the key to doing all that and more, NATURALLY!
  • (plus we earn points back to get more FREE products. Retail stores didn’t do that for me!)
  • Also, despite having three dogs and a cat, our home now smells like a spa. What could be better?

I cannot imagine my life without Young Living products. I use everything from their essential oils to deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, Thieves toothpaste, dental floss and mouthwash, Lavender body lotion, supplements, and makeup. Their Thieves cleaner is hands-down the best cleaner I’ve ever used and I don’t have to worry about my family and pets being around it.

Don’t even get me started on my addiction to Ningxia Red! My one regret about starting with Young Living is that I didn’t start drinking Ningxia Red sooner. Seriously. Talk to anyone who has been using it consistently and they’ll say the same thing.

Getting started FAQ

Why should I become a Young Living Wholesale Member?

Signing up as a wholesale member puts you under no obligation to distribute the oils.  It simply means that you get to enjoy the benefits of a discounted wholesale membership and save 24% on everything you order, forever. Young Living does not have any monthly minimum purchase requirements, contracts, or annual fees. It truly is risk free. They stand by their product and let it do the talking.

Is there a monthly order minimum?

No. You do not have to order monthly in order to benefit from being a Wholesale Member. Once you order your premium starter kit, you are free to just order more oils as the need arises… or not. That is the best part. You are never required to order anything, ever. However, as a wholesale member you will always pay 24% less than retail on everything you order.

Do I have to sell Young Living products to be a Wholesale Member?

Absolutely not. Being a wholesale member simply means that you are getting your products at wholesale prices. 24% less that the full retail price. You are never… I repeat, never required to sell anything.

Can I make money with Young Living?

You betcha!

Let me tell you, I was skeptical at first, but after researching it and seeing actual friends earn paychecks I never dreamed were possible, I jumped in with both feet and never looked back.

Young Living is one of the best home-based businesses out there! Take a look at their Income Disclosure Statement. Those numbers don’t lie! Not only is this a great family business, but the business is willable and runs on residual income – that means I can earn money in my sleep!

What makes Young Living better than other MLM companies? I’m going to tell you!

  1. Young Living is product driven— people love the product! It truly sells itself. I often tell people I would use these products even if I wasn’t building a business.
  2. Unlike many other MLM companies, our products are consumable. It’s hard to convince people to keep buying bags, or cooking products, or jewelry. But consumable products you use ALL THE TIME– essential oils, cleaning products, supplements, personal care, kids products, and now our Savvy Minerals makeup line? 
  3. There is no inventory. You don’t keep stock or need to deliver things. You simple connect people with the company and GET PAID.
  4. There’s no obligation. Young Living doesn’t kick you out if you don’t sell anything. There’s no monthly minimums. All you need to keep your YL account active is spend 50PV a year. That’s it!
  5. YOU decide if you want a paycheck. There is a 50PV/100PV purchase requirement to earn a paycheck each month, however, you never have to order if you don’t want to. It’s totally up to you. If you wish to place an order and get a paycheck to offset the cost of your order, that’s great! If you want to skip a month ordering and not earn a paycheck, no worries! It’s all up to you– YOU decide if you want to order/ get a paycheck. Many members place a monthly order because they love the product and get a paycheck too!
  6. It’s easy to share. We have all the resources you need to start sharing. No need to make any investment past the initial Premium Starter Kit it gives you everything you need to get started!
  7. It’s easy for your members to duplicate. You don’t need to do the hard work yourself. Once your members see how easy it is to share and how abundant the paychecks can be, they might want to jump in as well. You can plug them into all our groups with every resource they need to duplicate your success. We make it easy on purpose!


I get it, I used to feel that way as well. However, a pyramid scheme is when you rely on investments without a product, and the low man on the totem pole ends up with nothing because there’s no actual investment. THIS IS THE OPPOSITE OF THAT.

Young Living has been around for over 22 years and is built upon actual consumable products that people love. No one is spending money and getting nothing. They are ordering because they love the product. Those members that put the work into sharing are able to rank high because they are working hard– unlike a traditional corporation, ANYONE can reach the highest level regardless of previous income, education, inside politics, etc. Tell me a traditional company where you can reach the highest level and earn millions without a college degree– you can’t! However you CAN do that with Young Living. We have Royal Crown Diamonds who reached that rank at 24 years old!


Again, check out our income disclosure statement. These are ACTUAL numbers of what people earn EACH MONTH. Keep in mind that no amount is guaranteed, but these are actual MONTHLY paychecks from members so it gives a great indication of earning potential. I have several friends who are ROYAL CROWN DIAMOND. Check out the monthly average paycheck of a Royal Crown Diamond! Seriously, check it out!
