Insect Spray- A Must for Spring and Summer!

We love sitting outside in the mild summer weather with our pets. Since I work from home, I can even sit outside on my laptop on nice mornings!

I am more naturally minded and prefer not to buy things with chemicals I cannot pronounce, so this homemade Insect Spray is preferable to me. Yes, when you think about it, there are “chemicals” in everything. It's those preservatives and unknown contents we try to stay away from!

I love these Aerosol Sprayers which makes application easy so you don't miss a spot!

 Why Choose Young Living Oils?

I took me a good 6 months to decide to even use essentials oils but after doing my research I chose Young Living Oils. Why? Well, they are the only company that was completely open to me visiting their farm and distillery to check out how authentic and pure their products are. Everyone else said no. So it just so happens that I got to visit the Lavender farm and distillery in Utah to see for myself. Also I love the fact that Young Living Oils do not have an expiration date and that they can be ingested. They gurantee that no pesticides are used on the plants that they grow for their oils.

You see my grandmother used to plant peppermint in her garden and she would pluck a leaf off and put it straight in her mouth or in her tea. You should be able to do this with your oils. The FDA says you only have to have 5-10% pure oil to be considered pure. That means you could be ingesting a lot of chemicals with other brands if you are not carefully doing your own homework.

If I sign up do I have to sell?

Absolutely NOT! This is what I love so much about Young Living. You can purchase the kit for yourself and enjoy the benefits of getting the oils at a wholesale cost. Your just one step away from a healthy alternative for your family.

Is there a monthly minimum?

NO! You are only required to purchase just $50 a year to keep your wholesale membership. Don't worry though if you ever need to take a break you can reinstate yourself by just placing a $50 order.

Once I get my kit, how will I know what oils to use? 

You become a Young Living Distributor, you become a part of the family. We offer online and offline classes. We also offer a private Facebook group that provides support and information for all of our team members.

What else does YoungLiving Offer?

Young Living also offers a way for your to earn FREE OILS with every purchase you make. We will make sure you have all that information when you sign up.
