Do Essential Oils "ACTUALLY" Work?
So here's the truth before you begin to read....I'm not an aromatherapist, doctor, or smarty pants for that matter. I'm a 33 year old mom of 2 who used to have a career in the oil and gas recruitment industry.  I've since hung up my" head hunting hat" and you can find me now in sweatpants, shuttling kids in carseats around to play dates and swimming lessons. 

That being said, I have come to learn a thing or two about essential oils in the past 2 and a half years. Do essential oils ACTUALLY work. The answer to that is abso-freakin-lutely. It just depends on the brand. 

 I'll try not to bore you but I'll give you the meat and potatoes as to why these little bottles of magic work. Essential oils are tiny molecules that can easily be absorbed through the pores in our skin. Their unique compositions work with our body's systems which is how they help support our wellness. When you smell an essential oil, those tiny molecules trigger the olfactory organ which sends signals to the limibic system of the brain. The limbic system controls our emotions, hormones, breathing,  blood pressure and much more.  

Do you ever smell a scent and instantly are reminded of a time in your life or a special person? It takes you back to that place and may even lead you to feel a certain way. 

Depending on the quality of your essential oils, you may not get the desired action you're looking for due to the oils quality and purity.  You might be willing to try natural alternatives or create a less toxic home by using essential oils but you want to be sure you're using the best of the best....otherwise, it could all be for nothing right? 

I can tell you as a lover of Young Living oils for over 2 years now, this brand DOES work. I've used other brands in the past but did not get the actions I was looking for-like not even close. 

"But Lisa, Young Living essential oils are more expensive!" I do hear this occasionally, but listen to this-when I have to use 10-15 drops in a diffuser of other brands of essential oils or constantly re-apply them to my skin and get no action, I'm willing to pay a bit more for Young Living when all it takes is 3-4 drops in the diffuser and 1-2 drops on my skin.  The price per drop is actually less.

So yes, essential oils do actually work and no, I will never stop using my YL oils.  See for yourself guys. For the rest of April (and that's only 6 days!), I will give you $15.00 back if you purchase a Premium Stater Kit. Simply sign up as a Member here: and send me an email/message letting me know you want $15.00 buckeroos back. I'm happy to offer this discount because I know you're mind will be blown and you'll have stories to tell me in a few weeks about how the oils "actually" worked for you too. 

Happy oiling and welcome to the Young Living lifestyle,

Lisa Cook
