Welcome to Oily Support With Janet! I live in Waterloo Region, Ontario. I enjoy knitting and I'm learning how to quilt – I’m not very good but I sure have fun learning! And I love singing choral music! Singing beautiful music puts me in my happy place.
I started using Young Living Essential Oils in the Fall of 2016. I had been trying to cut back on the toxic chemicals in our home for a few years, so when I started learning about essential oils, I was very intrigued. I had no idea, however, that these nice little bottles of smelly stuff could have such an impact on my life and home!
We have a line of oil-infused cleaning products: household cleaner, laundry soap, dish soap, fruit & vegetable wash, hand soap, hand purifier and more! Our household cleaner is very concentrated; you put a capful into a large, empty spray bottle, top it up with water and you are good to go. Clean your counters, sinks, tubs, floors, windows, mirrors — practically everything! When our kids were young, I didn’t want them to inhale the chemicals from the grocery-store cleaners, so I would wash my floors after they left for school, then air out the house with open windows and hope there was no trace of it when they got home in the afternoon! Now my house smells like cinnamon and cloves when I clean!
All essential oils are not the same. Many are exposed to weed killers, pesticides, fertilizers, synthetics, and chemical extenders. Did you know there is no regulating of essential oils? That means that anyone can say their oils are 100% pure, organic, natural…whatever….and they have no one to answer to! Many essential oils have some oil in the bottle and a lot of fillers. Make sure you know where your oils come from! Young Living selects their seeds, grows the plants, distills them, tests them and bottles them – all with no exposure to any of the above-mentioned toxins! Many oils companies buy their oils from a broker, so they really don’t know what they’ve been exposed to. Please do your research!
Young Living has about 60 Natural Health Product oils which have been determined by Health Canada to help restore, maintain or improve health. Very few oils companies can claim that because they must be sanctioned by Health Canada. We have many oils that can help provide relief with these symptoms: burns and sores, joint and muscle paint associated with strains, sprains and rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, cough and cold symptoms, digestive discomfort. All Natural Health Products will have a Natural Product Number on the front of the bottle. If there’s no NPN, they are not sanctioned by Health Canada.
I am excited to share all I’ve been learning about Young Living’s Therapeutic Grade Oils. I provide classes regularly and would welcome the opportunity to share with you and your friends in your home, or mine. Please let me know if I can help you in this way. If you live too far to visit in person, I would love to chat with you online!
I post to my Facebook page regularly. Please check that out for lots of tips and ideas on essential oils. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Your comments are welcome!
