Sometimes it takes getting so sick of being sick to realise that something needs to change.
And let's be honest, habits are hard to break. Why are we so passionate about tiny bottles of oils? They have made the shift to a better way of life so much easier. And more fun. And when you start really looking at what is inside these little bottles (hint: absolutely NOTHING that you wouldn't want), your eyes really open to all the other things in your home, your nutrition and supplements, your cleaning products... and a whole new way of life opens up. One drop at a time.
Why all the love for Young Living?
Great question! As you can probably tell we LOVE Young Living essential oils and rate them over any other oils in the world. At the end of the day, the oils and health products you buy are completely your decision. We know you will do your research - that's why you are here right?
We are so fortunate in New Zealand to have so many incredible health and wellness options, as well as an inbuilt love of nature and the environment that we Kiwis don't take for granted. This is perhaps why we were so drawn to Young Living in the first place.
Their whole ethos is one that is very familiar to us Kiwis - they care about the planet and the people (and animals) who work the farms and distill the oils. As well as those who sell the products. We saw a video recently depicting the relationship Young Living has with the growers of the beautiful Manuka oil here - and it's the same approach I've seen and had relayed by those who have seen it firsthand in the many farms they partner with and own all around the world.
These great relationships are what bring us all those oils we can't get in New Zealand (like Frankincense, Helichrysum, and the amazing Eucalyptus Radiata from Australia to name a few. Those are 3 out of over 100 pure oils and blends!)
In short: we believe there is no better range of premium quality oils in the world.
A bit about Frankincense
The limestone cliffs of Oman’s Dhofar Mountains provide the perfect environment for the frankincense tree to grow, and Young Living is the first and only company in the world to obtain permission to distill and export Omani Sacred Frankincense oil and bring it into the Western world. The Boswellia Sacra trees in this region carry a rich history, having been harvested for the past 5,000 years. Today, their resin is harvested by the same method and on the same schedule as their ancestors, so they continue this centuries-old story.
The way this oil has supported Kristy and her family in their health journey is incredible... We cannot (and won't) make health claims about these products, but are always happy to share our own personal experience so you can decide for yourself if this may help you and your family with the particular challenges you may be facing.
So if you love things to be pure, to do good for you and the planet, to make life better and be fun and beautiful... Or you are just sick of what you have been doing that isn't working and need some support, this is the place you want to be.
