I’ve been speaking with a lot of you about your wellness wishes and interest in Young Living. I’ve planted a lot of seeds and hope to see some of them start sprouting soon! It’s still cold, but spring is coming!
The featured image is the most updated Young Living Income Disclosure to help entice you a little further.
Yes it’s real!
People do actually make that much! The averages are very accurate from each person I’ve ever asked that hold those ranks!
Don’t pay attention to the percentage of all members portion, because it is actually inaccurate.It is misleading making you think that it’s impossible to get to those ranks. The percentage is exponentially higher in reality and the reason for that is because all Young Living members that are even just consumers of the products, are calculated into this percentage. The percentage is low because not all members are actually doing the business. We all have diamond potential, but we need to work for it.
For all my fellow skeptics out there, this one is for you!
Some of you are still hesitant about joining because this is a Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) business and feel uncomfortable about that aspect. Because of your concerns, today, I wanted to share with you all my own opinions on network marketing and the reason that Young Living could be right for you!
It’s Monday again which means – another artist blog!
I really hope everyone had a great weekend. I want to kick this one off by saying that I really appreciate all of the positive feedback so far and all of the recent love and support on my latest artwork. ♥ You guys really drive me and motivate me to pursue my dreams and passion. For that, I thank you.
This week, my focus is shifting towards catching up on commissions, so I won’t be sharing a new piece with you all. Instead, you can expect more of an artist vlog for Friday’s video and I’ll be showing you guys my favorite art materials and acrylic supplies. I know I’ve talked about it before, but I’ve been getting requests to do a seperate video on this, so that’s what I’ll be doing!
I’ve never done an artist vlog before so I’m excited to see how this one goes and turns out. Definitely stay tuned for that! If you missed my last art video, I’ll leave it here below.
I really loved painting this one as I never really draw or paint men. This might be the beginning of something new here since I really enjoyed the masculine features of the face. “Maskulinity” looks beautiful and sophisticated next to his female counterpart, “Metamorphosis.” The two really compliment each other well and I’m so happy I decided to do this as a set. The collection that these two are a part of is still in the works. I may still add a few pieces to it under the theme of “transformation” because I’ve really been enjoying the concept since it is a very personal one to me at this moment of my career.
I’ve also started posting more videos on my Patreon channel that are longer versions of my YouTube videos with more detailed commentary, thought process, and reason for my madness (how I approach my paintings). They are slowed-down and also give little behind the scenes tidbits. All my artist friends-I highly suggest creating an account with them so that you have a platform for your clients to support your work!
I would love to make these videos public for everyone, but I really need to give those that support me financially a little extra effort and love. If you are interested in becoming a patron and”sponsoring” my art in any way, I would be ever so grateful for your contributions. I hope you guys can understand why I can’t share these with everyone. If interested in supporting me and gaining access to this content and other rewards, you can find my Patreon channel here.
Now that the announcement portion is through, I wanted to address something that has been on my mind for awhile now. I’ve posted all about it on social media, and even in some of my blog posts. I’ve had people send me private messages relating to my new adventure of wellness and my business with Young Living selling essential oils. They assumed I was in a new fad when it came to the oils and were concerned about my goals and intentions.
As you can see from the photo and caption above, yesterday, on my personal Facebook and Instagram account, I posted about how it’s possible to pursue more than one passion though to the world, they may seem very different. This is something that can be very hard to accomplish in the world of social media. I’ve had people unfollow me due to the start of my essential oils business being incorporated into my primarily art Instagram account and vise versa when people wanted to follow me for only oil/wellness-related content. I’m also a Christian and have noticed people unfollowing me due to my faith.
I decided to create an additional Instagram page where I can share freely about my oils and adventure with Young Living, but I’m definitely not going to cease from posting about this kind of content in addition to my art on my regular @quinducreations instagram account. I view myself as an advocate for wellness-especially when it comes to mental health. It’s the whole reason I became an artist in the first place and I don’t want to forget that-ever. While I appreciate the amount of followers I do have currently, I’m not going to stop being myself . I won’t be keeping my focus solely on what I think it is people want to see. I’m going to keep being unapologetically me. This is so much more important to me than any amount of followers.
Anyway, I just felt this was important enough to address in this post as well! Thank you for all of your continued support through this adventure. Let’s tackle this week and create something beautiful, shall we?
If you’re reading this, then WELCOME to my blog! In addition to my #WellnessSunday videos that I’m starting up every Sunday evening on YouTube, I also thought it would be fun to start writing more about Young Living and other lifestyle topics on a weekly basis as well! Don’t worry, Monday is still the day for art content. 😉
I wanted to start up the wellness and lifestyle blogs every Thursday moving forward.
What I’ve got for you today is a huge piece of why I decided to join Young Living: a little recipe known as Thieves.
It’s been said that the oils used in this blend were from a recipe of herbs that were used together to fight off the bubonic plague in France in the early 1500s. Thieves were stealing items and money from the graves and homes of the deceased-without also contracting the deadly disease as well. Confused and puzzled, the local authorities and magistrate granted the thieves freedom if they shared their secret. These thieves just so happened to be herbalists, perfumers, and spice traders. They knew what to use and how to use it in order to avoid getting affected by the plague. This was where the name “Thieves” was born.
There has been a lot of controversy throughout the ages as to what that specific blend of herbs was. Most historians can agree that it was a blend of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals. In 1994, Young Living added the Thieves blend to their repertoire containing the following essential oils: Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary.
Providing wellness support without the use of harsh chemicals is exactly what you can expect from using this blend of pure essential oils. I have only just begun using my Thieves Cleaner, but my lungs and hands are already so thankful.
For some reason, whenever I think of cleaning, my brain automatically goes to the memories I have as a child growing up. Cleaning has always meant using extremely harsh chemicals and I had always thought that there was no way to effectively clean without them. As a society, we have become so conditioned to think this way and it has been so natural to assume that things don’t really get “clean” without them.
Well, I just have to say that I’ve done some research online and this couldn’t be further from the truth. I almost feel as if we’d be better off living in our own filth than to expose ourselves and families to the harsh chemicals found in most modern-day cleaners. A lot of ingredients are known to be carcinogenic and it’s no wonder that I would feel dizzy and ill after exposing myself to them in my daily cleaning routines. The mere fact that it can be used around pets and children speaks volumes in itself! No need to contact poison control-simply have you child drink plenty of water if directly ingested. How’s that for a safe, modern-day cleaner?
Aside from simply used for cleaning it is also a powerful blend that can be diffused or applied topically to provide immunity support-especially during this time of the year! Remember the bubonic plague story? Dilute it in a roller bottle with a carrier oil and roll onto the bottoms of your feet! The Thieves Vitality oil (with the white label) is also safe for ingestion! I like to put a few drops in my water or tea for increased support and benefits!
Each of us are different, however, and we all need to do what we feel is best for ourselves and our own families. What works best for my family may not be the same for you and yours, but I highly suggest that you all draw your own conclusions after doing some adequate research for yourselves.
My Experience So Far
It’s been over a month now since I’ve gotten started with essential oils and my newfound obsession with Young Living. So far, I haven’t even needed to purchase any Thieves Cleaner just yet. We have been using the sample packet that came in my starter kit and it has just been so awesome seeing how far that small bit of cleaner really goes. Of course I want to eventually replace our laundry and dish soap with the Thieves version, but we are trying to use up what we already have-which is hard because of the toxin content we know there to be in our usual cleaners. We wish we had the luxury of just tossing it all out, but at least these have been the only things that were touched within our Toxin Box over the past month and a half.
If you missed it, I talk a little more about my Toxin Box and why I decided to go with Young Living a little more in this blog post: I’m “Selling” essential oils nowadays. Did you guys know? Rather than being redundant and explaining the initial whys of this decision, please feel free to check that out if you guys are interested.

This post has been all about Thieves so far, but I know there is still a lot I haven’t covered. This Wellness Sunday I will be sharing a short video on my YouTube channel about the sample packet that comes in your Young Living premium starter kit. I’ll be giving you the simple and easy way to make the most out of your packet. Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss the upload!
Why join The Business?
If you want to start your wellness journey, doing the business really is the best way because all you have to do is get your starter kit the first month followed by a monthly order of products you would have already been buying at the store anyways. Let me explain:
Because of toxin content, I actually save more money now because I don’t buy all of the products I used to buy such as: candles, scented sprays, perfumes, potpourris, makeup, hair products, face wash, face masks, eye cream, lotion, shower products, shave cream, hand sanitizer, muscle rub, after sun lotions, all purpose cleaners, glass cleaner, soft scrub, dish soap, laundry soap, dryer sheets, shower cleaner, hand soap, toilet cleaner, air fresheners, vitamins, probiotics, energy support, sleep support, seasonal support, digestive support, bug spray, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc.
How many times have you spent a small fortune on household cleaners and personal products at Walmart and wondered how it all added up so fast? By thinking of this as a lifestyle change, it’s easier to say ‘no’ to all of these things found in stores because I am aware of the toxin content and choose to get my stuff in though Young Living on my monthly orders. In my household, we don’t even think of it as being extra money being spent or really notice it at all because we have started ditching the old stuff and switching to the toxin-free Young Living versions. Not to mention that every time my order comes in the mail, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. They also send promotional freebies and give you a chance to earn money back without even signing anyone up yet.
The only thing is, by doing this as a business, I’ve also received the opportunity to make my money back and earn additional income. You really can’t lose out. There are no contracts or commitments and you can cancel anytime if it isn’t right for you. Worried about “selling”? Don’t be. This stuff naturally sell itself and we’ve got tools and training to help you. We grow as a group. Part of that growth (if not all) happens by building from the bottom up. Have a bad month? I might not and can help you grow by stacking up my new member members underneath you. This can be confusing, but it happens and is a small example of how the business works and continues to grow. Trusting the process is how it all starts.
If you’re ready to get your starter kit and start your oily journey to a safer, toxin-free lifestyle, feel free to sign up here and get your Thieves on! If you choose to do the business with me, I will also send you a welcome packet including a special essential oil roll on or massage oil blend (you pick) and I will also be adding you to my personal groups to aide you on your journey. Just choose your starter kit and sign up for Essential Rewards (your monthly product subscription plan that gives you additional promotions and freebies) and check the box that says you want to use your starter kit as your first Essential Rewards order. Afterwards, you can log in and choose what you want next month’s Essential Rewards order to consist of. I’ll be in contact right away to help you get started!
My team is great at looking out for each other and we really do raise in success together as a group. You will never do anything alone and we are all here to help each other out. We grow as a group, remember? I’ll always be there for you to assist, help answer questions, and hold your hand along the way. Success isn’t my dream, it’s my goal and I’m going to make it to the top. I’m in it for the long haul and want you to travel that road with me. My only regret is not starting this years ago.
Follow me on Instagram for other daily stories and testimonies. I truly adore Young Living and use their products every single day! My husband would say I have an unhealthy obsession. I’d say it was very healthy. 😉

Thanks for tuning in for today’s informational wellness post! Keep a look out for these types of posts every Thursday and be sure to check out this week’s Wellness Sunday Video on YouTube!
I hope you’ve all been having a great day and an even better week! I wanted to pop in and give you guys a quick update in regards to life in general. It’s going to be quick, I promise! 😀
I’ve been doing even more research on toxins and how they effect our body and lets just say that I cleaned out even more of my products I’ve had stashed away in my bathroom, laundry room, and vanity. My toxin box is getting so big nowadays I’m not sure how we’re going to get it out the door! Kind of, but not really.
It has been really nice to take breaks from my art to focus on my Young Living business and vice versa lately. Today I have recorded and edited two new videos related to Young Living and I’ve decided that I’m going to be doing weekly wellness videos every Sunday. Sunday has always been my day to spend time with my husband and recharge for the next week. We start our day with a good breakfast and really enjoy our time in worship together at church.
Since Sundays are so important to me, I decided to start up “Wellness Sunday” on my YouTube channel to remind myself to focus on what’s important. While working a lot isn’t a bad thing, I think that it’s important to have a good balance and to remember to save some time for yourself as well. I’m hoping that this video series will give everyone something to look forward to in each week and that it will help others learn to care for themselves and their families.
That’s all I wanted to say for now, friends.
Thanks for reading, as always.
