My journey through life has been full of health challenges. If you just popped over here from my Functional Medicine website, you may have read about my story there. I won't go into all those details here but In 2008 I had a mini-stroke. That got my attention! Conventional medicine failed me. So I put on my research hat and started uncovering, piece by piece, the ways to optimal health through Functional Medicine. That healthcare model is all about getting to root causes, not just treating symptoms but putting out the fire that is actually causing the symptoms while at the same time infusing one's life with healthy new habits.
Fast forward -->
I'm now a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach
and Certified Gluten Practitioner
, am continually learning and passionately educating others how to take control of their health! You can check out my other website if you're interested in knowing more about that http://functionalmedicinehealthcoaching.com
. But you know what has made the most dramatic difference in my health? ESSENTIAL OILS.
Not just any essential oils. I confess, before Functional Medicine training, I used to buy the ones in health food stores. But I didn't know what I was doing back then. Now I do.
Quality is critical to me. I'm not going to recommend mediocre products to my clients. So when I researched companies to provide my essential oils, it was not a short process. I'm pretty much of a nerd so details are important to me. I've never regretted my decision to choose Young Living. They have set the industry standards for quality and continually set the bar higher. Please watch the video below (Why Us?) and learn about Young Living's Seed to Seal Promise, how they raise the bar in the industry with BEYOND organic standards in all the farms they own and even in their partner farms. Their rigorous commitment to quality far exceeds any other company in the industry! Knowing WHY you should not use cheaper oils is very important and if you don't quite understand that, I'll be glad to explain how they could be harming you instead of helping you.
I love learning and teaching others what I've learned. Particularly when it comes to health and wellness. I had health symptoms that even the world's finest Functional Medicine doctors could not reverse. But guess what? Mmm-hmmm. I've learned that these essential oils are truly intelligent!
Quoted from Healing Oils of the Bible by David Stewart, Ph.D. "....prescription drugs, as flawed fabrications of man, are spiritually dead and devoid of divine intelligence to know how to do only the right thing, and not the wrong. By contrast, when essential oils are used to attack a bacteria which has invaded our bodies, they are selective because they are imbued with God's intelligence." Essential oils are aromatic volatile liquids distilled from shrubs, plants, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds ~ all of which were created by God for our use ..... thus my website name OilsByGod.
Since discovering the impact that essential oils and oil-infused products have had on my health, my passion has catapulted me to shout out the secrets that seem hidden from the world, buried under the bureaucracy of Big Pharma, overlooked, misunderstood, and under-appreciated.

How to get started
Contact me to attend one of my Essential Oils 101 classes or one of the other classes listed above. Or if you'd rather learn with a few of your close friends, I can come to you (perks to this option). The teaching portion of class is limited to one hour or less and includes interactive "hands on" experience with the oils. It's so much fun ~ no kidding, we really have a blast! I'll briefly share each oil in the Starter Kit and give some tips on how you can use them. NO obligation to buy anything. No pressure at all. If you decide you want to start using essential oils, I highly recommend starting out by purchasing a Premium Starter Kit.
Premium Starter Kit
The Premium Starter Kit (PSK) is always going to get you the best bang for your buck. The cost is $165 + tax and shipping. There are many options of PSKs, depending on your wants or needs ....
The Premium Starter Kit with Desert Mist Diffuser is my recommendation for the absolute BEST value because the diffuser is an elegant Moroccan trellis design with max continuous run time of 10 hours, 11 options of beautiful colored light settings and a candle-like-flicker mode (my favorite), any of which can be used separate from diffusing function if desired ($84 value). It comes with 12 essential oils ($150 value) and includes roller fitments, NingXia Red packets, and so much more. It turns out that there's not an oil in this kit that I don't love and use (most of them every day).
Premium Starter Kit with diffuser of your choice ... you have other options for diffusers. If you have a flare for the dramatic, you may prefer the Aria diffuser with round maple base and glass dome! Its remote control lets you choose from a selection of soothing, built-in sounds, run time, or enjoy multicolored LED lights. With built-in speakers, you can plug in your own personal music device and enjoy music of your choice. Oh yeah, this one is hard to resist, a $450 retail value for $260. I'm really into ambiance so, of course, I added this to my wish list and now own one. But if that's more than your budget allows right now, there are other diffusers with great features that come in PSKs.
The Thieves Starter Kit includes the Thieves line of products - Thieves essential oil, foaming hand soaps, sprays, household cleaners, toothpaste, mouthwash, waterless hand purifiers, and more.
The Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit is our new cosmetic line and includes Lavender essential oil, foundation, blush, eyeshadows, lip gloss, misting spray, foundation brush, and more. Color matching tools are available and also great Beauty School events are awesome!
The NingXia Starter Kit (powerful antioxidants for boosting immune system) includes 30 NingXia Red® 2-oz. singles ($111 value), amazing NingXia Nitro™ box of 14 tubes ($51 value), NingXia Red® 2-pack ($93 value), sample of Thieves® Household Cleaner, and more.
Why are these oils and oil-infused products in the Premium Starter Kits? Because living above the wellness line is not about ordering a single oil or oil blend to apply for a specific purpose you heard about. It's about switching out the everyday products in your home that have ingredients you can't pronounce with a product that is 100% natural and much more effective and safe for the whole family. So many people ask me about how to detox (a big buzzword these days and there's a reason why). The best way to detox is to stop filling your body and your home with chemical-laden products and start using products that will infuse wellness.
Are you resisting Change? You know you SHOULD and you COULD but not sure you WOULD?
If I had not experienced a health crisis, I doubt that I would've been motivated to change. So I get it. Most of us take the road of least resistance - the one everyone else is on. We don't want to stand out from the crowd and we don't want to be inconvenienced. We like our habits and we want to hold onto them, even if it kills us. But that's not just an expression. It's sadly true that our habits could be slowly or more rapidly killing us. But in order to change, we need to identify our "WHY?".
My "WHY?" was and is my quality of life, my health. If I had children, I'm sure they would be my WHY. But sadly, my only son - Timothy - was stillborn and I was never able to have children after that. My motivation is not money. It never has been. Anybody who knows me can probably spot my motivation without hesitation. I love to help people to learn what it's taken me years to learn about health and how they can reverse their symptoms with natural methods. My own experiences taught me a lot but Functional Medicine Coaching Academy trained me to identify root causes and natural alternatives to conventional medicine. I like to help others to connect the dots as to what's making them sick? What is causing our epidemic in chronic illnesses and autoimmune diseases, cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's? These don't crop up overnight! They are the outcome of daily choices we are making: what to put in our mouth, on our skin, in our homes, and in our environment. The good news is - it can ALL be avoided or minimized. We can't keep "going with the flow". We can't expect our government to protect us. You can see I'm passionate about this and that is what drives me. God has a plan and our "system" couldn't be doing more to mess it up! (Don't get me on that soap box!). This is the only way I know how to shout my message from the roof tops. What is YOUR "WHY?" and is it enough for YOU to start making lifestyle changes NOW?
So let's talk about the elephant in the room. I'll let you in on a little SECRET. Ssshhhh! I broke a promise I made to myself to never ever again join an MLM (Multi Level Marketing company). Anyone relate? But I am so glad I didn't let that stop me. This does not feel anything like that. This is more like a supportive family and community. I can't imagine missing out on all the friends I've made and all the FUN people I get to hang out with! It's as good as it gets! It just makes great business sense that D. Gary Young would set up this company with that smart business model, giving the PEOPLE opportunity to buy Seed to Seal essential oils and oil-infused products WHOLESALE with no monthly minimums. If that's all you want to do, that's it. Use the oils and I guarantee you'll fall in love with them just like me.
Is there a business opportunity? My goal with this website is primarily to introduce you to essential oils. It's not to talk to you about the business opportunity. The reason why I say that is unless someone is using essential oils as a lifestyle and they're a walking testimonial of how the essential oils have changed their life, then the business opportunity is not something I'd recommend. But just because I know that question often comes up, I thought it best to address it now.
Because we tend to get excited about really cool stuff we come across, it's natural to share it with others, whether it's a movie, a recipe, a wine, a shop, or a product. It's especially hard to keep essential oils a secret, even if you want to (which I'm not sure why you would). If someone sees me put a drop of Vitality Lemon EO in my water, they ask about it. If I apply Peppermint oil to the palms of my hand and breathe it in and my eyes light up, people can't help but notice and will ask questions. So eventually, even without trying, you may have people wanting to buy essential oils from you. Well. I do not SELL essential oils. I may share a sample of an essential oil they ask me about but I do not sell anything. In fact, I hate selling. So I just show them how to open up a wholesale account, pretty much like I just shared with you so they can order their own oils the same way I do. When that happens, you earn some bonuses and there's a little money dribbling into your bank account. Depending on how often that happens to you, and how easy you find it to share naturally with others, that dribble of money can turn into ..... well, like I said, I don't want to get into all that now. Just know the opportunity IS there and if you're interested in learning more, you can either contact me or you can click on Opportunity tab above.
You may be asking .... Is this one of those PYRAMID schemes?
If you are skeptical about MLMs and are under the impression that they are all "pyramid schemes", then watch this short youtube - "I still think it is a pyramid scheme" by Pat Petrini.
My only mission is to help you understand how the essential oils work if you want to learn and to help you start up a WHOLESALE account and save 24%. NO monthly requirements. None. And I promise - pinky swear - I will never talk to you about the business opportunity UNLESS you ask me.
PERKS of being a wholesale member under my sponsorship:
When you sign up for a wholesale membership, Young Living requires you to have a Sponsor and Enroller (they can be the same). I'd consider it a privilege and honor to be your Sponsor/Enroller. Here are some perks and benefits of being under my sponsorship:
HEALTH COACH GUIDED: You will have the distinct advantage of being guided by a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach IF you want that guidance! Whether you are local or international, it doesn't matter because we can meet via Zoom and you'll have my full support! If you do not want that guidance, I will respect that too!
ZYTO SCANS: If you are local here in the San Antonio, Texas area, I can run a Zyto scan on you, using a cradle you place your hand on (similar to what you do with a computer mouse) and within minutes, your galvanic skin response provides accurate readings directly from your body. This takes the guesswork out of where to start first in making health decisions. This report will show where you have out-of-range health markers and which oils might be a priority for you.
Based on your scan responses, it will recommend the best essential oils or oil-infused products and supplements to bring your health markers back into range as well as other suggested practices. Follow up scans can track your progress. If you live somewhere else and you'd like to have this scan, it can still be done remotely if I mail the cradle to you so we can talk about that if you're interested. I offer this as a totally FREE service to you IF I am your sponsor and enroller.
Let's get oiling!
I'd love to help you learn as much as you want about essential oils, how they work on a cellular level and how they cross the blood brain barrier and all that nerdy stuff that I get into. But if you just want to feel better and don't care about what's happening under the hood, I get that. Let's just have some fun and GET OILING!
