13 Things Every Young Living Addict Knows

1. Your Pinterest is full of diffuser blends, recipes, oily DIY and other compliant pins.

You check every pin to make sure that it meets Young Living's "Above the Wellness Line" standards, which means you check every pin closely, sometimes even twice before repinning.

2. When someone starts describing what they have going on in their life, your response is always:

No matter what the situation is... there's an oil for that because there is an oil for everything under the sun. Even when someone says they don't believe oils work, you know of an oil to help that!

3. No matter where you go, your oils are right by your side.

You have a stash of oils everywhere... In your car, in your purse, in your bathroom, kitchen, closet, bedroom, laundry room, on your person, even at your long lost cousins' house. You never go without your oils.

4. You wonder why you never have any spare change....

... and then you remember you spent it all on the must have oils that were in your cart. You can never go wrong with spending an entire paycheck on oils... Right?!

5. There's no such thing as too many of one oil.

You have about 30 bottles of your favorite oil hidden away, after all, you can NEVER run out of it, because that would be the end of the world as you know it. Plus, no one wants to see a cranky oiler because they ran out of their favorite oil since they forgot to add it to their last order.

6. You pack for a trip and an entire suitcase is dedicated to your oily products.

You wouldn't be caught dead without your oils, diffusers, DIY products, cleaners, skin care products, or hair care products. Who needs clothes anyway when you can have your oils?

7. Your up and down lines are your new extended family.

Even though some of them live on the other side of the United States or world, you know all their names, when their birthday is, and what their favorite oils are. You make sure that they know that you love them, and you never miss a video or chance to chat with any of them!

8. You look forward to Itovi Scan days more than you do seeing your friends.

Scan days aren't just for finding out what oils your body needs. They are also for adding oils to your collection, even if it shows that said oil will only resolve 2/226 biopoints in your body, it says you need it, so there are no "ifs" about it, it's going into your cart for your next order.

9. Broken Oil Bottles are like a sin.

Broken oil bottles mean the world is ending because you lose all the oil that spilled out... or you get as much of that oil as you can up and use it for whatever you can think of right then, and whatever was left in the bottle goes into a spare, probably used and cleaned with other oils, oil bottle.

10. Finding 'lost oils' is like Christmas....and so is mail day.

Finding 'lost oils' even though they weren't really lost is always a blessing because it means it's one oil you can replace with another more important oil on your order. Mail day is also like Christmas because it means that you get more oils and goodies to add to your never-ending collection of oils and goodies.

11. The Thieves line is Heaven.

You own every item in the Thieves line, and you make sure that you never run out. The Thieves line has consumed your life. You find new ways to use each product that make it last as long as possible. You have 12 bottles of Thieves cleaner under your sink or in your cupboard right now... its okay, we all do.

12. You get asked what perfume you are wearing.

That question is an immediate conversation that usually starts with "Oh, hunny, its not perfume, it's Young Living Essential Oils." Which then turns into a 20-minute discussion with a time set up for said questioner to come over and learn more about oils.

13. Oils are a lifestyle.

There is absolutely no such thing as life without oils. Oils are everything: once you go oils, there is no going back, no matter what anyone says. They become a part of your every day, a part of your life, and you would be beyond lost without them.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
