Young Living Essential Oils - Lauren Bretz

My family and I have been using Young Living Essential Oils and their essential oil infused products for 5 years. I was a tired, stressed out mom with 4, little kids when I finally found YLEOs (we have 5 now!) I had one child who needed real options that would work for his issues. Within a few weeks, we had incredible results and we have helped over 12,000 families to do the same. The products have radically changed our lives and it is our mission to come alongside other families to serve them with their health and wellness needs. We are so thankful to be back in Central Florida, after living away for 13 years. I’m still in the trenches with you, Mama. I don’t have all of the answers, but we can learn together!

Young Living Essential Oils started in 1994 and has been the world leader in essential oils ever since. Their therapeutic products are a farm to family experience. Through the painstaking steps of their proprietary Seed to Seal production process, they produce the best, most authentic essential oils in the world (see www.seedtoseal.com). They are committed to providing pure, powerful products for every family and lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of our essential oils.

Young Living’s mission: We honor our stewardship to champion nature’s living energy, essential oils, by fostering a community of healing and discovery while inspiring individuals to wellness, purpose, and abundance.
