Your journey into the world of essential oils belongs to YOU, and no other. If you’re serious about learning how to incorporate them into your life and want to learn how they can help support your health and wellness goals then you’ll need to invest some time and effort into your journey. Once you do, I’m betting that you’re going to be as shocked, amazed and excited as I was, and still am, at what a treasure these precious oils are. No wonder they were considered more valuable than gold in ancient times.
I realize that some of you are just beginning your journey, others of you began awhile ago and may have to grab the kit from the shelf or drawer you put them in and dust off the cobwebs. Others of you haven’t even started yet. It doesn’t matter, its okay… this information is pertinent to anyone on a YL essential oil journey or wanting to begin one. Think of your journey as an Adult Ed Continuing Education class… that has no ending! There is so much information available to help you learn how to properly use our oils and oil-infused products that it can be overwhelming at first to those who are new to essential oils, and to Young Living in particular. There’s no need to swamp yourself with information, just take it slowly, one day at a time, one step at a time and begin applying what you learn along the way. Be prepared to hold onto your seat… it’s going to be an incredible ride.
research, Research, RESEARCH!
When I first began using essential oils I had no idea how powerful they were and would have to say that I was a casual user. Once I began using them on a consistent basis it didn’t take long to find out though. After my first couple of “WOW” experiences I knew I had to learn more about them. So I began researching.
I wanted to learn about their chemistry, you know, what makes them tick so to speak. So I began conducting my own on-line research on essential oils and was shocked at the vast amount of published, peer-reviewed research that’s available. I began learning about the biblical usage of oils and searched for oil testimonials. I found lots of fascinating stuff on PINTEREST and on YouTUBE too but some of it was contradictory and confusing so I realized that I needed to purchase a good desk reference on essential oils that supported all three methods of use… topical, aromatic and internal. I devoured everything I could find and wanted to learn all I could about Young Living’s pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils, not to be confused with the cheap smelling scents found at your local grocery store or health food store, or online. I was absolutely stunned and fascinated by what I was learning and wanted to learn more about their chemistry and how they work. Boy was I hooked. I kept thinking to myself…. why doesn’t everyone know this? How is it possible that most people know little to nothing about them?
What did I learn? There are literally tens of thousands of published research papers on essential oils, with over 1,700 on just Frankincense alone. From government websites, to colleges and universities, to private organizations… there is a ton of research going on in the world of academia. I promise you, if you’re new to essential oils and begin researching them for yourself you are going to be shocked by what you find.
So how can YOU can start educating yourself and learn how to use Young Living’s essential oils?

Attend On-going Training and Classes
I have found that the people that experience the most success are the ones willing to own their journey, who are personally invested and engaged in it. They don’t expect others to tell them what to do- we’re not permitted to do that anyway. They yearn for more information and are willing to do their own research! They go to training classes as often as possible. To find events near you ask the person you signed up under for information on on-going classes and training. Also, check Young Living’s website for upcoming classes and events worldwide; or check EVENTBRITE and search for local events near you!
