My Journey Into Essential Oils


It all began on the 6th August 2019, when the parcel I had been waiting for to be delivered was sitting on the dining room table. My niece has kindly taken it off the hands of the postman while I was out attending a professional photoshoot.

I had used essential oils before but nothing like the ones that came through the door that day.

I opened the box to find a product guide, Young Living Lifestyle booklet, a welcome letter, and a leaflet about Young Living Foundation. It also included two boxes that contained the Young Living™ essential oils and a Dewdrop Essential Oil ultrasonic diffuser.

I was excited to try the essential oils but wanted to wait until the next day to try them as it was my 45th Birthday, a big milestone for me. In the meantime I got to work with my Rachel Maytum Designs website and added some of the photos I had done at the photoshoot, including this one below which lead me to how I found out about Young Living™ Essential Oils.

It's all thanks to Chad Michael Collins, an actor who is also a dear friend of mine. The art work I'm holding in the image above is of Collins, and is a watercolor design that I had created using Photoshop. I have spent the last year creating art of Collins and love supporting his acting career. He is a great friend to have.

Collins posted a photo of himself holding a book about Essential Oils. I was intrigued, as I had used essential oils in the past and knew of their benefits. After showing my interest, he soon went into more detail about the company, the products and what it had to offer via email.

As he shared about the benefits I was hesitate about becoming a member, I had been involved in network marketing before and failed miserably due to my lack of action and consistency. However, as I thought about it more and more, I knew I could trust Collins that he and the rest of the team would give me all the support that I needed to succeed.

I made the decision to take the leap and now was about to open the Young Living™ essential Oils box... Was I going to like the starter kit? Was I going to like the products? Upon opening it I could smell the Young Living essential oils, it was a pleasant, sweet smell. I soon began placing the oils onto my hand, one at a time and smelling them, I felt a sense of calm and peace. The smell of the oils were intense but also very beautiful. From the moment I tried the first oil, I knew I had made the right decision. My life was about to change!
