Essential Oils


What If You Could Choose a Different Path And…

~ you could get through the winter without being sick?

~ you could sleep like you used to without getting up?

~ you could feel joyful again before stress and life got in the way?

~ you could slow the signs of aging skin and nurture full, healthy hair?

What if you could do all of this naturally and quickly in the comfort of your own home?


You can! I’m Dr. Lisa Allen, a holistic physician and breast cancer survivor. I’ve done all of these things and more with essential oils.

A few drops is all it takes, either strategically applied to the skin, diffused into the air, or taken as a dietary supplement. Essential oils cleanse, strengthen, and restore balance to the body instead of just covering symptoms with a “band-aid”. And they don’t come with a list of nasty side effects that will leave you with a new set of problems.

You are probably on this page because you’re curious about what essential oils are and how they can help you. You prefer to take the natural approach with your health, but it can get overwhelming trying to wade through all of the information that’s out there. You’re just not sure what to choose, how to start, or if it’s even legitimate. It’s my mission to clear up the overwhelm and to show you how to transform your health naturally. I want a healthier, non-toxic lifestyle for you and your family, and I’m here to support you all the way.

Even if you have never faced a serious health challenge in your life, trust me when I tell you that these little bottles have literally TRANSFORMED the HEALTH and well-being of countless thousands of people around the world, myself and my patients included.

Essential oils are volatile liquids that are extracted from plant materials, including flowers, stems, bark  etc. They contain a complex mixture of naturally occurring chemical compounds that serve many functions in the plant, including defense from pests and microbes and healing. The name “essential” actually dates back to the time of Aristotle and refers to the “life force” of the plant. We can harness these amazing properties to improve our own health!

How Did I Get Into Essential Oils?

During the course of my education, I became fascinated by how much we can affect our own health outcomes using just nutrition, exercise, and supplements. In 2013, I was in the best shape of my life when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. I was shocked to say the least. Was I discouraged and convinced that my lifestyle was a waste of time? Absolutely not! I got through treatment with minimal side effects, even running throughout chemo and radiation. After 3 years, I’m still healthy and active, and I have none of the long-term common issues that affect survivors, including lymphedema, peripheral nerve damage, chronic pain, etc. Essential oils have played a large part in supporting and strengthening my healing body. 

Why Young Living?


I’ve used the same supplement company for years. Why? Because when you are using something to  your protect your greatest asset, your health, quality is HUGE. I want to know that when I tell a patient to take a certain supplement, I can count on that supplement to be organic, pure, and to deliver results. Every…single…time. So, it’s only natural that I would set the bar very high when choosing an essential oil company.

Young Living is the oldest company in the essential oils business, and it is the only company that owns its farms and oversees the production of its oils from Seed to Seal. Consumers are free to visit Young Living in Utah and see the process first hand, both in the lavender fields and in the distillation facility. No other company offers this.  They can’t because they are getting oils from middlemen. Take a look at this site to find out more for yourself.

Can’t I Just Get Some Oil at the Health Food Store or on Amazon?

I was shocked to find out that there are no standards whatsoever for labeling essential oils. 100% pure means nothing. Even if your bottle says “Organic”, that simply means that the crops were grown without chemical pesticides. Chemicals can be used freely in the distillation process, which means they end up concentrated in the bottle. Another common trick is to dilute pure oils with other less expensive oils or synthetic chemicals, leaving you with a useless and potentially harmful product.

Young Living created and instituted the testing standards for the industry so you can feel confident that you are getting a safe, potent product. These oils are pure and unadulterated and are made to be used therapeutically, and in many cases, internally.You will never be able to do this with a health food store oil. Just look at the label. If it says NOT FOR INTERNAL USE, why would you rub all over your skin or inhale it? Think about it, you could certainly use fresh, organic peppermint from the garden in cooking, so why wouldn’t you be able to use a drop of “pure” peppermint oil in your tea?

As for Amazon, I was surprised to find out that there are “impostors” lurking as genuine products. I had no idea that someone could dilute an oil or replace it with a cheaper oil and buy a cap unit to reseal it. Unbelievable! Young Living doesn’t sell their oils on Amazon. You can only get them through a reputable distributor.

How Do I Know Which Oils I Need?

Young Living has over 150 single oils and blends, so how in the world do you know which ones to get first? It can be quite overwhelming, but the process has been simplified so that it’s easy and economical to get started. There are a few oils that are like your kitchen staples. You know, the ones you build meals around because they’re so versatile? Young Living has put all these together in the Premium Starter Kit:


What’s included?

  • 10 of the most popular oils in a beautifully crafted display box
  • a choice of one aromatherapy diffuser made specially to disperse oils into the air
  • bonus bottle of Stress Away, a “tropical vacation in a bottle”
  • 10 sample sachets of 5 different oils, so you can share
  • 2 2oz packs of a super anti-oxidant drink, Ningxia Red
  • roller ball to attach to any bottle for easy application
  • 10 mini sample bottles made to share
  • product info cards with cutouts for sample bottles
  • tons of great info in the box, including a full-size product guide

*this is the US kit; kit options will vary in other countries and can be seen at


I recommend to all my friends, family and patients that they take advantage of the tremendous savings of becoming a Young Living wholesale member. Think of it like a Costco or Sam’s Club membership, only much better. This is the only way to get the starter kit shown above. The items in this kit retail for over $300 if purchased separately. But as a wholesale member, your price is only $160! And, once you become a member, you will save 24% on all future orders. No minimum purchase required, no monthly fees, no strings attached. Ever.


Good news! Stick with me here. You never have to speak a word of these oils to anyone else (but you will) unless you want to. You are under no obligation to ever buy anything again. If you want to keep your account active, you simply spend $50 per year. If you don’t, nothing lost, no penalty. This was a major reason I chose to purchase from this company, aside from the astounding quality and effectiveness.

As a Young Living wholesale member, you also have the option to join the optional frequent buyer’s club called Essential Rewards. Again, you don’t have to. But once you start using these oils, you’ll want more! And if you’re buying monthly anyway, like I am, you may as well get points back to use toward future purchases. I’ll be happy to tell you more about this program if you’re interested. If you decide to sign up using the link below, you can opt to simply skip the Essential Rewards portion so you can experience the oils before you decide. You can always enjoy added savings and perks later on.


Here’s a Quick Overview of the Signup Process:

  1. Click HERE to get started on the Young Living website.
  2. Make sure “wholesale member” is selected so you can get the starter kit and enjoy your lifetime 24% discount. (If you select “Retail”, you will not be able to get a starter kit or discount pricing).
  3. My member number, 2417411, should already be filled in both the “enroller” and “sponsor” fields. If not, put that number in both places.
  4. Fill out your personal information.(You will be asked for your social security number in case you ever decide to earn extra income with Young Living at a later date. This is an IRS requirement and will never be shared with anyone. If you have an EIN (tax ID#), you may use that instead.)
  5. Create a user id, password, and 4-digit PIN. Write these down for future reference.
  6. Select your Premium Starter Kit
  7. Decide if you would like to take advantage of the Essential Rewards customer loyalty program by purchasing an Essential Rewards kit. This is not a requirement to sign up. You can opt to skip this step and decide at a later time if the program makes sense for you. But if one of the ER kits appeals to you and you’d like to start earning points back toward products right away, be eligible for special promos and FREE OILS, go for it!
  8. Once you’ve selected your kit, decide if there’s anything else you’d like to add to your cart.
  9. Agree to the Terms and Conditions
  10. Check out and Confirm Your Order

PLEASE don’t forget to CONFIRM YOUR ORDER if you decide to sign up! I’ve had several sad people miss this step. When you’ve completed your order, you will receive a welcome email from Young Living, and that beautiful kit of wellness will be on its way.


As a holistic physician, I am passionate about education. I don’t want to send you off with a set of oils and a Starbucks gift card. Although Starbucks is delicious (yes, I admit it), it will teach you nothing about what to do with this brand new set of oils. The last thing I want is for them to sit in the box because you have no idea what to do next.

If you sign up with me, you will have my personal knowledge and support at your disposal for the long haul. Plus, I will provide you with reference materials that you will find invaluable as you begin your health transformation. I use these tools almost daily. Along with this, you will become part of  thriving Facebook community where you can ask questions, search for natural remedies, and look up DIY recipes using your oils. I also offer continuing education so you’ll never wonder “what now?”. And…everyone loves a free giveaway. Every month, I’ll give away something fun to one of my U.S. or Canadian members!

If you are ready to feel happier and less stressed, have more energy, sleep more soundly, enjoy more vibrant health and look younger, then NOW is the time to take the plunge. Once you purchase your kit, simply drop me a line by email at and I will send your reference package right away! (U.S. and Canadian members only) International members with a valid email address are eligible for a FREE iPhone reference book app.



I’m so happy that I discovered these oils and nearly every day I am surprised by how they are replacing toxic products that I used to buy regularly. I just had no idea how many chemicals we’re dousing ourselves with daily! Even “natural” and “gentle” products can contain really nasty ingredients because these words aren’t regulated by the FDA.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. And when you’re ready to start your own health transformation, sign up here. I look forward to seeing you thrive!

In health,

Dr. Lisa

  3. I’ve been hearing lots of hype about essential oils but never really looked into it… Thank you for this post! It was very informative and really made me think that I should really get into essential oils. Thanks again.

    • I really appreciate that! I’ve been using and learning about them for over a year now, and I’m continually amazed at how they are replacing all the chemicals and over the counter meds in my house. There is a lot of hype and misinformation out there. And there are a ton of people who sell oils and have no idea how to really help people use and benefit from them. I love teaching and supporting my clients long term.

  4. My boyfriend never really understood why I used these oils, but after having a headache all day and Advil didn’t work, he asked if I had anything for it. Peppermint did the trick!

  5. Thank you for the info. I love my essential oils, my son got me started and now we don’t spend a night without the diffuser. During the day, I stay calm with Lavender. Thanks for posting.

    • You’re welcome! I can totally relate. We run the diffuser 24/7 here too. Some blends are great for focus and mood lifting. Some are better for relaxing and sleeping. And some just smell awesome😊.
