I've been asked 3 times this week why I am "pushing" or "peddling" essential oils. I have to laugh. I am "pushing" and "peddling" a healthier lifestyle! Tools to empower yourself to living a more vibrant and happy life. That also includes good food and simple recipes, easy Dr. Mom tips to care for your kids as they grow and how to move your body and stretch your soul to be the absolute best you can be.
I was meeting more and more UNHAPPY people. I had to offer some of my knowledge and tools for self care. I have always wanted to save the world. This is my small way of helping. I educate people HOW to use oils and natural products. I'm not here to fool you into health and wellness. I'm not looking for another job and am not leaving the profession that I love so dearly. I use essential oils for medicinal purposes and they are what are in my mom medicine cabinet. I prefer natural medicine.
People often ask me what the differences between Young Living oils and oils you can purchase at Whole Foods etc. and how to explain the heavier price tag the YL oils have. Listen, you get what you pay for in all walks of life.
I will then direct them to Aura Cacia's own marketing video on Patchouli. Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sourced, which is why YL chooses to partner with sources they know produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically, sustainably, and legally. Or even better, they just grow their own.
I have already done my research on which company produces the best. I used them for 10 years before I decided to start marketing and selling them. It really scares me that drugstores and home good stores carry some cheap oils. What is next...Home Depot? I beg you to care what you are breathing in and rubbing in your body and your kids too!
Here is a video of how Aura Cacia collects patchouli. Now I'm all for supporting the local farmer. I think that part is great. I like the community part and supporting small business and believing in these families. I support my local farmers too!! But the quality control standards and how Aura Cacia's product is tested...no thanks. It is probably 100% patchouli..maybe ...But I have zero idea what else is in there. Do you wanna rub this on your body? How about fill your lungs with it? I don't. And I will pay more to guarantee that I don't.
