The holidays are all about family and the people we love! This year you can give them a truly special and personal gift, the gift of a DNA story.
A DNA story is about more than just science. It’s about learning the story of your ancestors, your roots, and everything that makes you the unique person that you are.
I’m thrilled to be teaming up with 23andMe to share this amazing gift idea! Even before they reached out to me, I had purchased a kit because I loved the idea of learning more about my health and genetics!
Today I’m going to walk you through the entire process of ordering, submitting your sample, and I’ll share a sneak peek of what your results will look like! This way you’ll know exactly what expect if you order a kit for yourself or a loved one.
To order a kit (currently on sale!): CLICK HERE
Once it arrives, you need to register it. This is quick and easy. Visit the site, enter the number on your spit tube and add some of your personal info (name, email, etc). This part is VERY important. If you submit your sample without registering, there’s no way for you to receive your DNA story!
Next, take the spit tube out of the box and follow the instructions to properly collect your sample.
Lastly, close the tube and place it in the bag that’s been provided. Your package is ready to be sent!
In 4-6 weeks you’ll receive an email notification that your results are ready! And, if you’re like me, you’ll be so excited that you’ll immediately go read all of your information!
Here’s a look at some of my ancenstry DNA results:
I had no idea that I had such a high percentage of Native American DNA! There’s something really special about learning about your personal history. It makes you feel excited to just be you!
This is why 23andMe make such a great gift! It opens the door to curiosity and encourages others to learn more about who they are!
Also, 23andMe offers two types of DNA kits. The ancestry kit, that I mentioned earlier, provides a look into what parts of the world your DNA comes from. The health kit, provides a look at your genetic markers for disease, personal traits, and so much more!
