You’re hesitant to buy the oils and I know exactly why…

Hey you!

I suppose that you are reading this post because you want to overcome that final barrier to your oily journey – to actually buy the product and try it. You have done your research; you have seen real people talk about how these oils help them in their everyday life; you are interested but… well, not yet that convinced.

To tell you honestly, I think we have all passed that stage. We, meaning, us who are already hooked into this “thing” – that ginormous hesitation before that final step (unless of course you have millions of dollars at your disposal).

So just to share with you, these were my barriers to entry (sounds familiar, marketing peeps?) when I was deciding if I should purchase my Young Living Premium Starter Kit>>. I know some of you may be able to relate and I hope that I can help you decide, at some point.

  1. It is expensive.

    Take all my credit, aargghhh!

    I couldn’t argue with this because yes, this is not something you would just pull off from the shelf and bring to the counter. As I said in my previous post>>, it took me three months to finally take the plunge (and I have never looked back ever since).

    How did I convince myself?

    Well, for something that has the great potential to promote natural health for my family, I looked at the purchase this way: it costs one-fourth of an iPhone (probably even less if you are eyeing that latest model); it’s nine Mac lipsticks; it’s probably ten days of dining out with your #fambam. Gist is, you can cut somewhere and save up for it.

    And yes, that bonus is coming so *wink* *wink*

  2. It may not work.

    So where do I apply these oils again?

    Yes but what if, it will?

    Health Canada has already listed Young Living essential oils to be natural alternatives for certain ailments>>. Check out NHP uses here>>

    You can also talk to some of your oily friends on how this has helped them (and if it really helped them), do some research and read on personal testimonies of people.

    Again, there’s just too many claims for these to be fake. In the Philippines, we still rely on herbal and traditional medicine and this is basically one of the core tenets of aromatherapy and natural healing.

  3. It takes too much work.

    You can make soaps with these babies??!

    We all started with the diffuser. Lavender and frankincense were my favorite knockout combo.

    And then, I realized that there are so many things you can do with oils more than just diffusing them! You can concoct your own blends.

    While some people find this tedious, I find this process actually fun. And it is a labor of love! Imagine creating something for your kid’s wellness and seeing that it actually works. There’s no greater reward than that. Not even if you call it “work”.

  4. There are cheaper alternatives.

    Apple vs. China brands. Same banana.

    Yes and you can try them, too! However, I cannot personally vouch their efficacy as I am not sure if they are 100% pure essential oils and also because I have not had any personal encounter with them.

    One friend actually led me to a smaller and also popular essential oil label in the US and while their per bottle price is much cheaper, getting the oils in bulk from Young Living actually gave me more value for money because of the freebies that I got.

    So why not buy just a few of this cheaper brand, you say?

    Well, it is not practical because minimum shipping cost would entail. That is why it is better to plan your purchases ahead so you can get the best deal.

  5. It is an MLM business.

    Wait, how do I know this is not a scam???

    This one I should counter because I am not a fan of traditional MLM businesses as well. Young Living is a direct marketing business.

    Unlike MLM, members are not required to have a monthly purchase (on top of their initial premium starter kit) nor are they tied to a minimum amount of products that they have to sell. Again, this was a breather for me.

    When I was researching about YL, this was also one of my concerns but since there are no strings attached in terms of purchases, I gave it a go. Now, everything that you purchase after your starter kit is based on your choice and your choice, alone (although I am pretty sure that you will be hooked like I am, waaah). Your enroller may get a referral fee but it is something that many industries use as a marketing tool (more than advertising) because it works.

So there you have it, loves!

Getting into this lifestyle will not be cheap (just like going organic) but it may have tremendous effect to your family’s health and wellness.

Also, I find my essential oil experience very addicting so make sure that you don’t follow my footsteps and control your shopping spree on oils, haha! Right now, every time I want to buy something, a makeup or a gadget for example, I always convert that purchase to how many oils I can get with the same amount, LOL.

At the end of the day, buy it if you see that this can serve real and meaningful purpose to your family’s health and wellness and of course, if you have extra money to spare (or you can also save for it!) – this craze isn’t going away anytime soon as aromatherapy and natural medicine have thrived since the ancient times. 

Cheers to your future oily journey and just hit me up in the comments or email me at callmebalot@gmail.com if you have any questions.
