Earlier this year I was researching essential oils for my family. For those who do not know me, I do a lot of research, I call the companies, I look into each and every single detail of the product to make sure if I am investing in it, I know it’s going to be legit.
I started reading some blogs that helped guide me a bit:
After I read these and many others, I decided my family was not going to be using any essential oils coming from large corporations and MLMs. It was also the horrible attack I saw when YL and DoTerra Reps had concerns about their products and had them separately tested. I personally decided that it’s best to stick to small batch companies and companies that take pride in their oils and are very open and transparent (not using their own in house labs) with their lab findings and work with concerns to find out what happened on that batch. In doing that research I found these companies:
After many issues coming up of questionable products, Young Living decided it was best to announce a new person over their quality control and have them issue a statement. What YL didn’t realize is that something didn’t smell right when I saw their issued statement and I looked into this new hire. What’s interesting to me is that Young Living doesn’t mention his previous employer (other than the press release) that he has worked with over 22 years:
But LinkedIn sure told me everything I need to know:
Just scroll through his contacts and friends on LinkedIn. Doesn’t matter what roll he played in that company, be it oral care R&D or Snr Director of GlaxoSmithKline. I will never support an organization that hires someone to directly oversee R&D and quality control who has played a part in covering up fraud, bribery and the maiming and killing of both innocent children and adults through their questionable psychiatric drugs or tainted vaccines. He was directly responsible for both during his tenure with GSK, why would we trust him with essential oils ?
I did take a good look at Mike Buchs, and it is possible that he had a change of heart and decided to go a totally different more holistic approach, but after 22 years? He’s got a good pension already with GSK…
Take your time and research, don’t trust anyone and find out what you are taking is truly and factually real essential oils. I will always tell you the truth if I research something. I did lose a friend over this finding because she felt I was being selfish and just thinking about me. She is a distributor for YL. But I’d rather people know about this than not know about it.
