The Journey

Here I was, finishing up my first year of graduate school, knowing that for the summer I was going to be going down part-time with my community mental health center job, that I would be getting married in a few months, and that I was in need of another part-time job opportunity.

I had done some research about Essential Oils and was curious about them and I was good friends with the Ivy & Twine Leader, Hannah Jeffreys. Through some basic education and having the incredible feeling of “need for change”; I was ready to jump the gun on this Oily Journey, with absolutely NO desire to begin selling them or making a business journey with them.  Alas, in less than a month, I was turned down for a specific job I was dreaming to have part-time at a cute little soap shop in a little town nearby, I took the plunge … Here I am, creating a business and Essential Oil Community with Ivy & Twine Essentials and Young Living Essential Oils.

I have  been using Essential Oils for about a year and a half now, and I feel like I have only scratched the surface of their potential.  There are so many DIYs, recipes, and uses for each individual oil or oil blend.  I love learning and will continue to do so.  With that being said, if you have any questions, I would LOVE to answer them, and if need be, I will contact my Upline to get you the information you absolutely need! The community through Young Living Essential Oils is unparalleled to any other work environment I’ve ever experienced. I look forward to continuing this journey.

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids which are derived from herbs, trees, flowers, and other plants. They are highly fragrant, as they are the “essence” of the natural product that they are created from. They are created through a process of either cold-pressing or steam distillation. These oils contain the essential compounds that occur in nature and provide you with a convenient way to experience the health benefits that nature contains.

Why I chose to use Young Living and why you should too.

  • Young Living has 20+ years of experience and is the world leader and pioneer in essential oil research and distillation process.
  • Young Living oils are beyond organic.  Why?  Check out their seed to seal process here.
  • Each bath of oils is rigorously tested in house for therapeutic viability.  Check out their testing process here.
  • Young Living own their own farms across the globe.  Read about their farms here.
  • You can actually visit the farms and participate in the harvest/distillation process.  Watch the Idaho Balsalm Fir harvest here.
  • Young Living is the only company to submit their oils to AIRASE for purity testing.  Read more about AIRASE here.
  • With over 120 singles and blends, Young Living has a great selection of oils available.
  • Young Living has an unmatched Seed to Seal process to guarantee the purity and potency of every oil.
  • Young Living oils do not have an expiration date.
  • Young Living has specific oils that are labeled as “safe for ingestion”! WOO!

I am starting my journey with Essential Oils and have done my own research on the purity of oils.  We are confident in using oils in our recipes because we only use Young Living.  They are beyond organic and never use pesticides, herbicides or any harmful chemicals. Their soil has never been exposed to them as well.  We don’t suggest ever using any other oil for ingestion because we don’t know of their purity.
