Cypress & Spruce

Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here.

Right off the bat, you’re probably wondering what we’re all about. Well, here it is as succinctly as we can express it:

Cypress & Spruce is a business-minded and family-focused community committed to helping you connect, learn, and grow through essential oil education, health and wellness resources, and team-building strategies.

We want you to feel like part of a community, so whether you’re brand new to essential oils or looking to grow a business from your passion for the products, Cypress & Spruce is here to help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Within our growing network of Young Living Essential Oil members, it’s our dedicated team leaders who meet, collaborate, and engage on the individual and group levels. You can find out more about our active team leaders here.

We consistently update with new educational and business-building videos and blog posts, including posts about in-home oil uses, new events and opportunities, wellness tips, healthy recipe ideas, upcoming product releases and reveals, and much more.

But Why Young Living?

We believe in the Young Living brand because of the time-tested, natural, and consistent quality of their products, the personal care they provide to every customer and distributor, and the company’s continued devotion to ensuring everything is held to the highest standards.

Family Matters

At its core, Cypress & Spruce is lead by two families, the Irving’s, Josh & Janelle (IG:, and the Hulme’s, Matt & Jessica (IG: jessicamhulme), who collaboratively share in developing the content, promotions, events, and opportunities that are available throughout this site and on our social media channels.

Cypress is Spruce is a family brand. While we mean that figuratively as our network can feel and operate at times like an extended family, we also very much mean that literally, as Janelle and Jessica are sisters. In fact, back in the day Janelle and Jessica created their YL accounts together (Janelle plunging in first by minutes), and the two have been closely collaborating and sharing together ever since.

Josh and Janelle live in Weatherford, Texas with their five spirited kids, four energetic and creative boys; Julian (12), Jude (10), Joch (6), and Jagger (4), and one wild and free-spirited little girl, Juniper (2). Their Christian faith is at the center of their family life, with adventure, travel, and knowledge always just around the corner!

Josh and Janelle love good food, margaritas, and sitting by the fire, and the twosome post regularly here about the tremendous impact essential oils have in their home and for their family.

Matt and Jessica live in the near southside of Fort Worth, and while they don’t yet have any kids, they have plenty of nieces and nephews to keep them busy! (Plus their dog Blue thinks himself a person anyway.). Matt is a writer, and wrote the very words you’re reading, and apologizes for the length. In addition to her oil business, Jessica is also a licensed massage therapist, and offers a range of massage techniques as an extension of the Cypress & Spruce brand.

Like their co-owners here at Cypress & Spruce, Matt and Jessica always place their faith in Jesus in the center of their lives and are deeply involved in the Paradox Church in downtown Fort Worth. We’re all about that #FairmountPorchLife, love community, and strive to live graciously as the Lord graciously blesses them.

While we are based out of the DFW metroplex, we have leaders across the country and beyond. And just as the community has evolved and grown, so has our knowledge base, skill sets, and geography, providing our members new opportunities to participate and learn, and we’re incredibly fortunate to be a part of such a diverse and knowledgeable network of passionate people who are continually striving to learn, adapt, share, and grow.

Well(ness) Worth It

All of us have unique stories of what brought us to first trying essential oils. Maybe it was a search for something natural and wholesome to diffuse or replace the typical household cleaning chemicals, or maybe it was a genuine health need, or something as simple as a slow discovery of how beneficial these products can be.

Whatever the case, our testimonies are some of the most powerful tools in our arsenal, and everyone on our team would love to share theirs as they help you uncover yours.

The health benefits (and business, if that’s your thing) of Young Living are tremendous, but so are the people you’ll meet and friendships you’ll develop along the way. We’re so glad you’re here, and we hope to see you at an event soon! (So stay fresh with what’s going on, click this link to check out our upcoming events calendar.)
