I love supplements. In fact, I need them. Given my digestive issues and food allergies, there is no way I can get all the nutrients I need from food, not even if fruits and vegetables retained all of their nutritional greatness from healthy soil and throughout harvesting and transportation. And for all the raw food lovers, fruits and veggies aggravate my digestive system causing more harm than good. As a matter of fact, most of my food allergies are fruits and vegetables and my GI doctor advised against raw foods and roughage. So I rely on supplements to provide the nourishment my body needs.
Supplementing with Essential Oils
Supplementing with essential oils has the additional benefit of enhancing my wellness on many levels. Essential oils, as I’m sure you already know, are the scent and flavor of the plants from which they are extracted. And each oil packs a powerful health punch. Relaxation, improved digestion, and antioxidants to fight illness and inflammation are just a few of the numerous health benefits of essential oils. Yet, all essential oils are not created equal.
After trying different essential oil products on for size, I resonated with Young Living to supplement my health needs. Let me say here that I encourage you to pave your own path to health because one-size-does-not-fit all. What works for one most certainly does not work for everybody. For example, I know many people who thrive on raw, vegetarian, and vegan diets. Unfortunately, these nutrition plans tax and drain my system. So as you consider using essential oils to enhance your specific wellness needs, I want to share my top 3 Young Living essential oil products that I’ve used for a few years with you.

Thieves® Laundry Soap
I began using this product after searching for a laundry detergent for my massage linens. As a Massage Therapist, I was very aware of cleanliness and client comfort and wanted a toxin-free detergent. I tried several brands before Thieves® Laundry Soap that did not work well to clean and that were full of petrochemicals and/or dyes. This detergent does not contain these chemicals nor SLS, formaldehyde, phosphates, synthetic perfumes, chlorine, optical brighteners. Without them, Thieves® Laundry Soap cleaned my linens superbly, even removing stains from massage cream without me having to take an extra stain-removal step. And it lasts. Thieves® Laundry Soap worked so well for my massage linens that I began using it for my personal laundry.
Thieves® Whitening Toothpaste
This toothpaste is very gentle yet effective. It also tastes and smells good. I credit it for keeping my gums healthy and for my consistent A+ dental reports. Thieves® Whitening Toothpaste includes peppermint, lemon, and eucalyptus oils, along with other beneficial ones. It does not contain fluoride, peroxides, parabens, artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, soy, nor any of the toxins mentioned above. My houseguests love Thieves® Whitening Toothpaste too. So I keep a small tube in the guest bathroom.
Vitality Dietary Oils
My all-time favorite essential oil product. These oils are ingestible. I get the beneficial effects on my digestive system more immediately than when oils are diffused or applied topically. Also, the Vitality Dietary Oils taste really, really good. Sometimes I’ll add Lemon Vitality drops to water. Sometimes Lemon and Ginger Vitality to my water. I rotate Peppermint, Orange, and Thieves (cinnamon blend) Vitality to coffee. Oh, the Oregano and Black Pepper Vitality are great to cook with. And please don’t tell anyone that I add Lemon or Lime Vitality to diet coke. I look forward to trying more flavors and concoctions to aid my digestion and immune system. Also, the Vitality Dietary Oils travel well.
All essential oils are not created equal.
I enjoy many Young Living essential oil products to enhance my overall health and wellness. The Thieves® Laundry Soap, Thieves® Whitening Toothpaste, and Vitality Dietary Oils are my top 3. My laundry, dental health, and digestive system have improved since I began using this line of products a few years ago. It’s clear to me that the Young Living essential oil products are good for my health.
My book Living In Total Health is very direct about paving your own path to health because one-size-does-not-fit all. In fact, that’s why Living In Total Health won the 2021 Indie Book Award for Health & Wellness and was a Finalist in Mind, Body, Spirit. Living In Total Health also integrates all aspects of health, not just shape and size or diet and exercise.
Young Living products do the same. They provide health benefits for your mind, body, and spirit. My health is enriched on many levels from using these essential oil products.
