About Crystal Silvas
Young Living #3471989
I’m the one who started The Joyful Oilers team, because the team I joined is wonderful, but massive and I wanted a slightly smaller, more intimate group of oily friends to hang out with online and in real life.
So a little about me. I was born and raised in north county San Diego, California and I’m still here because I love love LOVE SoCal. I love the beach, the mild weather and Disneyland, so I’ll probably never leave. Before I started sharing essential oils I owned an Etsy store where I sold my handmade girls’ dresses, mostly Disney princess inspired. Let it be known: I am a Disney FREAK. Before I had my 2 kiddos I taught surfing lessons, wrote content for an Internet marketing company and hula danced with a Polynesian dance troupe. I also really love to sing and I may or may not have a YouTube channel where I sing covers of Disney princess songs. Maybe I’ll share that with you guys some time. 😉
I live in north county San Diego with my husband Keith, who was my high school sweetheart, and our two sweet kiddos. You can most often find us at the beach, at Disneyland, making music or hiking somewhere. We’re also perfectly happy lounging around our house in pjs all day. Fortunately for us, my Joyful Oiler lifestyle affords us that luxury. (Three cheers for working at home!)
Speaking of our lifestyle, our family strives to live as cleanly as possible. After watching some mind blowing and eye opening documentaries about the food industry in 2011, we transitioned to buying more organic food. This mama was hooked to learning all about all of the toxins we’re exposed to on a daily basis, and I went way, way down the rabbit hole. By 2012 we swore off all GMOs, pesticides, toxic household cleaning products, harmful personal care products, plastics, non-stick coated pans, fluoridated water, processed foods etc. We were pretty hardcore. We didn’t go out to eat at restaurants anymore, with the exception of Haggo’s Organic Taco in Leucadia, and we brought organic food along on all of our travels—yup, even to Disneyland. We did that for four solid years.
That’s also about when we got into essential oils, because I was super into making my own laundry soap, all purpose cleaner, skincare products etc. However I was using a popular health food store brand, with less than exciting results. But it had a USDA organic label on it, which gave me the warm fuzzies, so I kept using it. My really good friend Jessica Petty started using Young Living oils in July of 2013 and shared with me how my “organic” oils weren’t necessarily what they claimed to be, but I didn’t listen to her for a very long time. I would go to her parties and look at her Facebook posts, but didn’t really give it much thought. Honestly, I was a little skeptical about her YL oils because I had negative associations in my mind about networking marketing companies, but after researching Young Living’s Seed To Seal promise and then finally trying the oils I was a believer, and my old oils went buh-bye.
After dabbling with single oils for some time, I finally got my own wholesale account by buying my Premium Starter kit, and I decided soon after that Young Living’s mission of wellness, purpose and abundance was definitely for me. Jessica hooked me up with reference materials, books, videos, mentoring and Facebook groups and I couldn’t be happier. Hearing testimonies from people I’ve shared oils with is priceless and will never, ever get old. I finally feel like I am living in alignment with my higher purpose, which is ultimately to love on people, spread joy and help others to be the best versions of themselves. I am so glad that you’re here reading this, and I really hope to connect with you soon. Please reach out to me if you ever have any questions about Young Living oils, or even if you just want to chat with me. I love talking to people. 🙂 xo
