I was brought up to respect the earth and use what it could give me whenever I could. Because of that, I have always been one to stay away from medication unless I really, REALLY need it. When I DO need it, I like homeopathic or natural remedies first. I am not opposed to doctors or medication in the least. I just like to take charge of my own health whenever I can, with the doctor's guidance of course. So when a friend told me that she signed up and started talking about Young Living and the Essential Oils, I just knew that it was something I needed to do, not only for me, but my family and friends. The benefits of the company and the products are just amazing. It feels good to be able to help people learn about and get the benefits from something so natural and unadulterated. The positivity and energy that comes from the members all the way up to the owner is also inspiring. That and the oils have really helped me externally and internally to be a better person and be more free and open make my own way. It is also a constant source of new knowledge where I am able to learn something on a daily basis, which is stimulating and exciting at the same time. That makes this opportunity all the more special to me.
