Hillary Chybinski: essential oils

essential oils

You may not know this, but in my former life, I was an accountant. Not just any old accountant, an auditor. Do you know what auditors are known for? Being skeptical. You know what I was good at? Being skeptical. If you had told me that I would be regularly using essential oils to support my health and wellness . . .well, after I finished rolling my eyes, I would have told you, "no way - not me!"

But have you ever noticed that there are some things that come back to you, again and again? That's how I actually got started with essential oils. In 2014, my Word of the Year was Journey. One of the Journeys I embarked on, involved the journey to a healthier lifestyle for me and my family. I was embarking on middle age, and it wasn't a pretty stage.  Aches, pains and wrinkles came out of nowhere.

As part of that journey to get control over my wellness, I began to notice essential oils more and more in magazine articles, on Pinterest and on blogs that I read. Common, every-day products were stating they contained essential oils - it seemed that they were everywhere! Not only that, but this whole idea of chemical-free and toxin-free products started to take hold.

Oily Life - incorporating Essential Oils into Your Daily Life

Soon after that "awakening", a handful of very dear friends started using essential oils regularly in their own lives and began to share their experiences in conversations and on social media. I was listening. What's wrong with scented candles? Baby powder? Cleaning wipes?

I was intrigued by what I heard and by what I saw. Incorporating these plant-based oils into their daily routines, was CHANGING THEIR LIVES -  for the better. I needed to know more, and figure out if this was part of my healthy life journey.

Revelation 22:2 And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations

So I took the first step, and got myself a Premium Starter Kit. It was the easiest and most-cost effective way to figure out if this was something I would actually use.

Most economic way to get started iwth essential oils
Now, you can go buy essential oils just about anywhere these days . . .but I don't recommend it.

Let me repeat that last part, because it is SO IMPORTANT . . .while you CAN buy essential oils just about anywhere, I DO NOT recommend it.  In fact, the auditor in me cautions you about that. Do your research! Just google the word, "fragrance" - I'll wait . . .

The minute I learned about Young Living's Seed to Seal promise and the history of the company and it's founder, I knew I had found the right company . . .someone I could trust. And believe me, when you start really reading what is in your favorite products . . .trust becomes a HUGE factor. Be sure to download the Think Dirty App and start checking out what's under your sink, on your dresser and in your medicine cabinet.

I love my Young Living Essential Oils and am so happy that I added them to my journey to a healthy lifestyle. We have had some amazing results so far, and they are changing all of our lives for the better every single day. It's even more than just essential oils - it's a toxin-free lifestyle brand. Over time, I have slowly ditched our toxin-filled products like dish soap, face cleaner, dryer sheets and even make-up - for cleaner products.

So if you are curious, let me share some of the basics right here with you. 

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils have been around for thousands of years. Essential oils are volatile liquids and aromatic compounds that are distilled or pressed from plants. Like the blood in our bodies, the essential oils of a plant are used to seal cuts, protect wounds, provide nutrients and oxygen for cell regeneration and guard against harmful microorganisms.

How To Use Essential Oils

There are as many ways (more, really) to use essential oils as there are oils. I was pleasantly surprised how very easily essential oil use fit into my daily routines. Here are some ways you can incorporate essential oils into your own life.

Inspire a positive emotional state

I have practically stopped wearing perfume. Each essential oil’s complex, pleasant, and unique scent activates the limbic system (the brain’s center of emotion and memory) differently. Essential oils can be your key to a more fulfilling and balanced emotional life.

Enhance your physical wellness

I don't know about you, but even though I try, I don't always make smart decisions concerning diet, exercise and personal care. Those choices can leave a body tired, unable to battle germs and full of toxins. From cleansing and weight management to supporting every system of the body, essential oils and essential oil-infused supplements can provide the targeted solutions you need to restore balance and feel your best.

Purify your home

A Diffuser (you get one with a Premium Starter Kit) is my favorite. I swear I will never buy another scented candle or air freshener again. I can't even stand that aisle any longer!  In addition, Young Living offers a wealth of non-toxic cleaners for every surface in your home. You can enjoy peace of mind without compromise when you polish countertops, clean sticky messes, and cleanse dirty surfaces with the gentle but effective power of essential oils.

Refine your skin

Have you ever read the ingredients in some of your facial cleansers and other skin products? While there are many great brands out there, there are some scary ones as well. You can purge chemicals from your beauty routine and rediscover your natural glow. An ancient skin care secret, essential oils can help promote a clear-looking complexion, soften the appearance of signs of aging, and nurture healthy-looking hair.

Create deep spiritual awareness

Research shows that the pure constituents in essential oils can stimulate olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. You can enhance your spiritual practice (or meditation or yoga) by diluting and apply meditative, empowering essential oils directly to your wrists, feet, and behind the ears, or diffuse in a quiet space.

How to Use Essential Oils

How To Get Started With Essential Oils

Getting started is easy. There are many Essential Oil brands out there, available in a variety of price points. After doing some research, I went with Young Living. Young Living provides 100% therapeutic grade essential oils. I love their Seed to Seal® process, and feel confident in the quality of what I'm buying and the oils we're using.

10 Reasons to Choose Young Living

The way Young Living works, is you can choose to just purchase some oils (become a Retail Customer) or join Young Living as a Wholesale Member (like Costco, without the huge jars of mayo).  The best way to purchase oils and get the support you need to succeed with your oils, is to become a wholesale member of Young Living.

That's the path that I took. It's so EASY, plus becoming a Wholesale Member provides you a lifetime 24% off retail price, options to earn cash money AND bonuses for purchases!

What?? Earn cash money?? Yes. Once you become a Wholesale Member, you have the option of sharing oils with your friends and family, which means you can earn monthly commissions from Young Living. (a great way to pay for your own monthly oils!) THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT - EVER. It's simply a nice option. Trust me - if you sign up, there is no obligation.

If you're looking for the "best bang for your buck," to begin your own essential oil journey, I recommend the Premium Starter Kit. You get 11 Essential Oils (including the new Vitality Oils), an Essential Oil Diffuser, Roller Fitment, a sample of the AMAZING Thieves Household Cleaner, 10 sample bottles, 2 Ningxa Red samples PLUS informational literature.

If you use my member number to sign up (#1984116) I will send you a Thank You Gift,  information to get you started with your oils, AND ways you can get into our education groups.

Want to host a workshop or class? I do all the work (if you're local) plus I bring you a sweet Hostess Gift. Not local? Let's talk about how I can Skype in to your event!

  1. Thanks for sharing!! I have been thinking of looking into oils in the new year

  2. I love oils, but Peppermint in particular has been a surprise blessing.

    1. That peppermint is really a life saver! So versatile.

  3. I have been hearing so much about essential oils. I am going to have to further investigate. Is there a guide to tell you what to do with them once you purchase?
