February might be one of my favorite months! First, because it's so easy to express "My Love of Oils" and use it as a theme to share Young Living from my heart. Just thinking about how much of my life is immersed in essential oils I tear up. Thinking about this journey and how far back my passion goes, makes me take a deep breath!
I can smell the lavender! I can see the farm where it all began. I can see D. Gary Young teaching a handful of students with a gleam in his eye that was so contagious, we all fell in love with HOPE for the future of natural health and wellness. The more I learned about essential oils and their value to my personal life and my professional life as a Physical Therapist, the more I signed up for another class.... and another class.... and another.
We were witness to a movement, while sharing Gary's pioneering spirit... poised to change the world. I saw my "doom and gloom attitude about helping people," turn around to getting results with my patients and my enthusiasm began to spread to my family and friends., My excitement has barely wavered in twenty four years. I'm still friends with many of those early birds who showed up in remote places to learn about the oils, oil-infused supplements, sustainable farm practices, organic thinking and opportunity to help more people. The only time I have pulled back a little was due to exhaustion. I am admittedly a workaholic, but found the perfect way to channel it!
We are highlighting Gary's book and dedicating February 2021 to his vision. Young Living is The World Leader in Essential Oils and we have over 6,000,000 product users to keep that vision alive and expanding. If what we have learned, applied and shared for over 27 years wasn't working, I wouldn't be here and you wouldn't be here, either.
"For the Love of Oils" comes from the world of plants, the flowers, trees, leaves and seeds in nature. I think "nature's love for us" is captured in essential oils to connect us, and bring us back to "our senses!" I might be a good messenger, as a leader in Young Living, but the true messengers are in those" little bottles of LIGHT." The true message is from Our Creator that gives us something to support our human needs. Nature symbolically shows us a better way to act, to heal, to feel compassion and empathy, and to ultimately live harmoniously in the world.
It only takes a minute to open a bottle of essential oil, drop some in the palm of your hand, rub your palms together (maybe hold them in prayer) and then breathe in the aroma to tap that part of you that says, "for the love of oils, let's keep going!"
