Wellness, Purpose & Abundance - Jim & Beth Mayhew Blog Post

When I first heard about essential oils, I thought they were for the flower child, natural, tree huggers crowd. Like most people, I thought oils were just for making things smell better. To be honest, I was a skeptic about alternative methods that I really didn’t understand.

I never had any experience with using oils nor had I ever thought about using them until my sister-in-law Barb introduced us to them in 2011. Our families were getting together to celebrate Thanksgiving. My husband, Jim, had been suffering with the sniffles and feeling down right crapy for several weeks. Barb had him apply R.C.™, Thieves® and maybe a couple other oils. It was through his extraordinary experience that I knew we had to look into them further.

Today, we are using oils in our home every single day. Whether it’s Lavender for the bedtime routine, Thieves® for immune support, Stress Away™ for when things feel tense, Lemon Vitality™ to add natural flavor to water and to support a healthy digestive system, Purification® to make the clothes and shoes smell good or Frankincense to promote healthy skin. We are reaping the benefits of overall wellness. Since we started with oils there hasn’t been a day I haven’t grabbed a bottle for something.

I can honestly say that using essential oils has change my life, the lives of my family and the lives of those all around me. Being introduced to essential oils opened our eyes to so much more than we could have ever imagined. Together, Jim and I began our journey to a healthier lifestyle – keeping each other accountable. Not only did our health improve (with regular exercise, completing a Tough Mudder and Warrior Dash together, lost pounds and inches), but our perspective on life has changed. We are happier, healthier and have found more ways to enjoy life. Now we are led by the passion of helping others transform their lives in similar ways. Young Living helped teach us how to start living life to the fullest with wellness, purpose and abundance. You can’t put a price tag on that…it’s priceless!

This is why I can’t help but share our experiences with the intent it might impact the wellness of other people and their families in similar ways. There is no better time to make a change to your lifestyle than today. This never became more apparent to me until after the loss of my father-in-law to a massive heart attach, my mother-in-law to cancer and my mother to cancer. Why do so many of us wait until something significant becomes apparent or occurs in our lives before we decide to make a lifestyle change? Shouldn’t we be looking at our health proactively instead of reactively? It’s because change isn’t easy, comfortable and it takes time, but you would have to agree it is worthwhile.

I know…I know…not everyone who is reading this or who I have the opportunity to share with may understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle, but my heart tells me not to stop sharing. I will continue sharing in the hopes I will reach those who are looking for a way to change and who may be in need of this transition the most. Because making an impact on the wellness of other people and giving the ability for other people to live life to the fullest is my passion. You deserve to be happy and healthy.

You must have a lot of questions…because I did when I first learned about the oils and I’m going to try to answer a few of those.

Why Young Living Essential Oils?

Mona, UT
Whispering Springs Farm, Mona, UT

Young Living essential oils are the ONLY oils I know and trust to share with you. Through research, I found Young Living has been in business for 23+ years and is deeply committed to the purity and quality of their oils with the Seed to Seal Process. Their oils go through strenuous testing and proprietary distillation techniques for them to be most effective and safe. This is very important to me and I’m guessing it’s important to you too! Let’s just say my research revealed that not all oils are created equal.

As a skeptic, I didn’t believe it until I could see it for myself. To verify this was true, we visited the Whispering Springs Farm in Mona, Utah – twice, in fact. At the farm, we experienced firsthand the Seed to Seal process and you could do it too. Young Living owns many of their farms in various countries around the world. Anyone can visit the farms and participate in the harvest and distillation process. There is no other essential oil company out there that will offer you this opportunity.

I’m soooo grateful for a safe and natural wellness option for our entire family.


How Do You Use The Oils?

  • Use your favorite essential oils in your diffuser.
