This is a follow-up post for my most visited blog post, Thieves Oil – Brand Comparison. I wrote this post almost 3 years ago and since then this post has received lots of comments, some good and some critical (I’m a big girl, I can take it). The essential oil industry has taken off in the past couple of years. Everytime I turn around I see another friend posting about using their oils and encouraging their friends to use them. I personally love my oils, but like I mentioned in my previous post, they can get super expensive. When you buy brands like Young Living and DoTerra, especially if you are a rep you might find yourself spending $100 a month in oils just to keep your business going.
I decided early on that I didn’t want to pursue the oil business with Young Living. Having to keep a personal sales volume in order to get my commission is not my cup of tea. So while I loved Young Living Thieves Oil, I decided I wanted to try to find a cheaper alternative.
In my previous post, I talked about giving Eden’s Garden a try. I liked Eden’s Garden, but it just wasn’t the same as Young Living so I ended buying more Young Living. And so my search continued…
…That brings me to today. I finally found an oil that I really love that is, in my opinion exactly like Young Living’s Thieves Oil. You may love me or hate me for this, but the oil is Now Nature’s Shield. The ingredients are exactly the same as Young Living, but it’s only $14.32 on Amazon as opposed to Young Living’s at $39.79.
You all may have your reasons for sticking with DoTerra and Young Living, but I’ll be sticking with Now and saving some money. And just like my older post I’m completely open to hearing your opinions about your favorite oils. So fire away! Let me know your thoughts!
