Most of us are now familiar with the use of essential oils in aromatherapy, but essential oils are much more than something that smells good. A few years ago, I met a lady selling Young Living essential oils at the NY State Fair. I was intrigued, because, working with plant medicine as I do, I find that essential oils can be a very powerful healing tool — not surprising when you consider that essential oils are the essence of the plant. I got on her mailing list and began to learn more about these particular essential oils.
My training with an Amazonian shaman opened my eyes and my soul to the wonderful world of plant spirit medicine. Plants have amazingly loving and giving spirits. They want to help us, they want to heal us. They each have their own special medicine to share. It is the shaman’s job to get to know the plant spirits and understand how each particular plant can help in the healing process. I usually call upon living, fresh plants in my healing work, but oftentimes in cold northern climates, fresh plants are not available for a good part of the year. I will often use a plant’s essential oil when I do not have a fresh plant available, with good results.
However, all essential oils are not created equal, and some are not of the highest quality. After learning about Young Living essential oils and using them myself for many years now, I am confident that they are some of the most pure essential oils that are currently created. They are theraputic quality, and most of them can actually be ingested without harm — in fact, in many cases, it is encouraged. And I trust the YL oils enough to do that, which is something I would not feel confident saying for any other.
And, while I feel that some of the testimonials the company sends out are a bit over the top (for instance, I don’t believe that essential oils can cure cancer or Equine Cushings disease — at least not on their own), I do believe that Young Living has excellent product. So I became an independent distributor, mostly so I could get wholesale prices on my own purchases. But then some of you wanted to buy from me, to help “support the cause,” as it were.
For that reason, I recently added a link to my Young Living Independent Distributor website from my Black Horse Consulting website, to make it easier for those of you who would like to order these wonderful essential oils directly from me.
I am honored by your trust and confidence. Enjoy!
