The Happy Root Family was founded in 2014 by Amanda and Daniel DeWald. After the birth of their first child, they radically changed their lifestyle to create a happier, healthier home for their growing family. After witnessing the increased quality of life that implementing these new changes had brought to them, they decided they wanted to share this knowledge and journey with others. 

The Happy Root was created to EDUCATE and EMPOWER others with the strength and knowledge to create healthy lifestyle changes within families around the world (or at least their circle of influence) so that you too are able to ENJOY life to the fullest! 

Realizing what a large role Young Living had played in creating these changes, they decided to build a family for their customers and brand partners; this family is now known as The Happy Root Family
Our Mission: To educate and empower families to make lasting, healthy lifestyle changes one baby step at a time!

Our Vision: To create a community of individuals ready to make a change in this world.

We strive to give you the knowledge and tools that you need to feel confident in implementing and sharing these changes with those around you. Nothing is more important to us then health and family. So let's get started!
Our family is a supportive group of women and men who are all working hard to better our health and wellness with the help of Young Living Essential Oils. The Happy Root Family is an exclusive group for anyone who has decided to incorporate Young Living into their daily lives and decides to join us as either a customer or a brand partner with any current member of the Happy Root Family. 

As a family, we are here to guide one another, offer support + advice on how, where, and when to use our oils, as well as incorporate other healthy lifestyle choices. We have a wide variety of oil users, including: nurses, nurse practitioners, midwives, doulas, chiropractors, massage therapists, teachers, moms/dads, grandparents, teenagers, lots of little oily babies and so many more! We are here to answer your questions and truly become your oily family!
Meaning behind the name...
The Happy Root Family came to be because when we envisioned a team name, our initial thoughts were that we wanted it to be uplifting and something that incorporated health and full body wellness (mind, body, & spirit). We liked the idea of roots, because roots are what hold life together. Roots are what ground us and connect us; they give us nutrients, they are strong and bold. 

According to the word Root has many meanings; some that stuck out to us were: 

  • "the fundamental or essential part" 
  • "a part of a body of a plant that develops, typically, from the radicle and grows downward into the soil, anchoring the plant and absorbing nutriment and moisture". 
Further, according to some meanings that stood out to us included: 

  • "the bottom or supporting part of something"
  • "the essential part or element, the basic core"
  • "a primary source, an origin"
  • "the condition of being settled and of belonging to a particular place or society"
  • "the state of having or establishing an indigenous relationship with a personal affinity for a particular culture, society, or environment". 
Family is important to us and family 'roots' are of great importance! They are what link us to our past and help create our future. Together all of these really resonated with us so we knew we wanted to incorporate roots! 

Next we thought about doing the Healthy Root, but it just wasn't right. We wanted it to be a place of encouragement and excitement, thus 'Happy' just stuck. 

Lastly, as we have mentioned many times, family is important to us and we want all of our customers and brand partners to feel like family and BE family. 

Hence The Happy Root Family was born.

what members are saying...
"I began my journey with Young Living Essential oils about seven years ago but was never really connected to the company. After seeing a friend post on Facebook about Young Living again years later, did I decide to become more involved. I contacted this friend who re-engaged me in the company and connected me to The Happy Root Family. At first I just wanted to get to know the oils and see what others were using them for. But then, something amazing happened. Both the friend I connected with on Facebook and Amanda DeWald reached out to me and discussed the benefits of sharing Young Living and how it could change my life and my family's life. I've never looked back! Amanda, my direct upline Brittany and all of the Happy Root Family have helped me to be a more confident individual and have showed me how to share my passion for the oils and Young Living company as a whole. I am able to stay at home with my daughter and soon to be son! Never would I have thought that was possible! The aspect of The Happy Root Family is that it is not just part of company but it really is a family. I have met so many amazing people through this adventure and look forward to my 'job'." - Lindsay S.
