Why You Should NEVER Buy Young Living Oils From Amazon, eBay, or Other Third-Party Sites

Never Buy Young Living from Amazon or eBay

I am a price-checker by nature.  I am ALWAYS comparing prices before actually buying something.  In fact, I go to 2 grocery stores every week and know where I need to buy what items in order to get the lowest price.  I do NOT like overpaying, as I’m sure you don’t either!

So I KNOW it’s tempting (and normal), once you’ve decided you want to buy Young Living essential oils, to want to do a little price shopping!

Here is my Public Service Announcement…

If you purchase Young Living Essential Oils, PLEASE purchase them directly from Young Living.  More and more, people are getting ripped off by buying their Young Living oils from Amazon, eBay, and other third-party sites!

Just recently, someone posted in one of the private groups on Facebook that the latest bottle of Young Living Lemon oil she ordered looked and smelled like WATER, with just a hint of lemon.  She was going to call Young Living Customer Service and complain, until it came out she had purchased the oil off AMAZON.

She said the bottle was completely sealed – What she didn’t know was that people can buy lids that look completely sealed and push this new lid on a bottle of oil that has been TAMPERED WITH.

The group promptly gave her an education about what scammers are doing, because unfortunately it is happening more and more.

The Problem

On sites like Amazon and eBay, some sellers are either cutting the oils with a carrier or dumping them entirely and filling them with water, then putting a ‘new’ cap on before selling them.  And then, of course, they can sell the oils for a lower price.

Young Living stands behind all of their products, but they cannot stand behind product that someone has purchased, potentially tampered with, and then resold.  So if you did not purchase your products directly from Young Living, there is nothing they can do if for some reason you are unhappy.

This scam is particularly disturbing since many of Young Living’s oils have a ‘Supplement’ label and can be taken internally… I cringe at thinking of someone ingesting one of these oils that has been tampered with, purchased off Amazon, eBay, or the like!!

The Solution

The ONLY way to ensure you are actually getting genuine Young Living oils is to purchase from Young Living!!  How do you do that??  Get your own account, and begin purchasing directly from them!  You will also have the GREAT benefit of a support system should you need it!  And remember if you join my group and purchase the Premium Starter Kit, I will send you a 400+ page reference guide as my gift to you as well!  You will be getting 100% pure oils, and you will know how to use them.  :)

If another Young Living member shared this post with you, you can create your account through them, just ask them how to do it.

Please trust me when I say this… if you are finding Young Living oils cheaper somewhere else, there is a REASON… and it’s probably not a good one!

YL Users – pass this along to your teams, as this is unfortunately still happening out there. So sad. Buyers beware!!

Enterovirus D68 and Young Living Essential Oils

Enterovirus D68 and Young Living Essential Oils

If you have children, you have no doubt seen the stories in the news about Enterovirus D68, the the respiratory illness suspected of hospitalizing hundreds of children across the nation.  The illness starts as what seems a common cold, but soon children can have difficulty breathing.  With the illness rapidly moving across state borders, I wanted to know what Young Living essential oils could be helpful to not only ward off this virus, but also help if in fact it makes its way into your home.

I came across this FANTASTIC call by Cherie Ross, renowned Young Living essential oil educator, on oils that can be DIFFUSED, APPLIED TOPICALLY, and TAKEN INTERNALLY that may help.  Cherie knows her stuff, and I highly encourage you to listen to this call if you are looking for info on Young Living essential oil use for Enterovirus D68.

Cheri gives tons of options of oils to diffuse, oils to use on infants and small children, and much more.   This call is definitely worth listening to, grab some paper and a pen to take notes!! (Hint: some of her favorites to diffuse against this virus are Thieves, Raven, Exodus II, Eucalyptus Blue, and Ravintsara!)

How to Dilute Thieves Household Cleaner

How to Dilute Thieves Cleaner

I must admit, this is embarrassing.  When I purchased my Young Living Thieves Household Cleaner, I was so excited to begin using it.  I could not wait to throw out my toxic cleaners!  But you know what??  It sat under my counter for probably 2 months!!  Why, you ask?  Because I didn’t know how to dilute it!!

To be fair, there are instructions on the back of the bottle, but they are in ‘parts’, as in 1 part cleaner to 30 parts water.  When I tried to look up info on ‘how to dilute Thieves Cleaner’, everything was talking about ‘cap fulls’.  Well how much is 3o cap fulls equal to?  Clearly I could have pulled out some tablespoons and some teaspoons to see just how big a ‘cap full’ was and done some fancy math, but that always got pushed to the bottom of my to-do list, which is why my bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner sat unopened in my cabinet for 2 months!

One day I actually looked at the big spray bottle I had purchased for diluting my cleaner, and I realized it had OUNCE markings on the side!  DUH!!!  Wow.  I really can’t believe I am admitting this publicly, haha!  Anyways, USE OUNCES!!  Like 1 ounce of cleaner to 30 ounces of water.  I almost didn’t do this post, but just in case someone out there has a bottle of unopened Thieves cleaner under their sink…
