I love Lemon because of how diverse it is! It’s a good oil to add to your glass of water for flavoring and is a great immune booster as it contains limonene. I also love to use it to clean because it’s an amazing degreaser. I was able to get red nail polish out of a wool rug by just using a few drops of lemon and blotting it out. I love how diverse these oils are! Lemon cleans drinking water and aids in concentration! I also soak my strawberries in lemon oil water because it deep cleans the gunk out of them! SO FRESH! If you have mucus, it helps thin it out when you’re sick!! Lifesaver!!

This oil is most commonly known for it’s relaxing properties. However, it’s important to remember that each person’s DNA is different, and therefore, responds differently to the oils. Lavender is my go to oil for bug bites and for burns because it’s so soothing. I also like to put a few drops in my bath at night with epsom salt to help me unwind. Lavender is considered the swiss army knife of all oils because it has so many uses! Knowledge is power so research what Lavender can do for you! Anxiety anyone?!!

F R A N K I N C E N S E

This oil is high in sesquiterpenes, meaning it delivers oxygen to the cells and erases/deprograms maladaptive information in cells. How incredible! I use this oil mixed with a carrier oil on my face because it’s great for skin and I love the way it smells.  It’s also great for boosting your immune system!

An interesting fact about this oil is that it is an enhancer, meaning that it enhances the properties of other oils! You can layer it on top of other oils or add it to a capsule to increase the benefits of the other oils while experiencing the great qualities of Copaiba itself. I add this oil to a spoonful of honey when I have a sore throat and it really helps to soothe it.

T H I E V E S Blend

This oil is a crazy immune booster! I love to diffuse this when someone around the house is sick in order to clean the air while boosting our immune systems. Thieves is also incredibly numbing as is contains clove oil, so it’s great to apply topically to a sore throat or dilute and use on a teething babies gums. Young Living makes an entire product line just from this oil! From toothpaste, cleaning products, fruit soak, to laundry detergent!

STORY OF THIEVES ::During the Bubonic Plague, four thieves went from house to house to rob those who had succumbed to the illness. After the thieves were captured and tried for their acts of robbery, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to be around those afflicted long and often enough to rob them but not be affected by the illness. They shared their recipe of a combination of herbs and spices, and the king posted it throughout the land.

It’s interesting to note here that, during this time of the plague striking Europe, physicians were seen wearing long black robes, wide brimmed hats, and masks that appeared to have a beak. The reason for doing this is that the masks were said to have contained a combination of herbs, spices, and essential oils that the physicians would breathe in order to keep themselves safe from those afflicted with the illness. Their long black robes were also said to be doused in a similar fragrant concoction and current research continues to build upon this theory.

PANAWAY Blend

Panaway smells like a mix between Bengay and root beer.  This one is great for soothing your muscles and joints after a workout.  For enhanced effect, layer Peppermint on top of Panaway with a hot compress!  It’s amazing!

I had my knee pop out of socket because I’m a dancing fool! This oil was a lifesaver in healing my knee when everything else covered up my pain like a bandaid.

P U R I F I C A T I O N Blend

This is my go-to for neutralizing odors. When I put it in my diffuser it makes everything smell fresh and clean. I also like to hang a diffuser necklace from my rear view mirror and add a drop of purification.

Tip: It also contains Tea Tree which repel lice! Also my go to for bug bites and bug spray compared to OFF.

R.C. Blend

It is incredible for supporting your respiratory system.   I used to use Vick’s vapor rub for chest coughs but I read the ingredients and backed off completely. Now, I use R.C. topically on my chest or in the diffuser to break up mucus.  I also love to add it to a washcloth and place the washcloth under a hot shower head to make a steam room at home!

D I G I Z E  Blend

When you have an upset stomach, you should be asking for Digize! 1 drop in the belly button makes you feel better in minutes. If I know I’ll be eating a lot of dairy or sugar I like to take some Digize in a capsule to support my digestive system.

S T R E S S  A W A Y Blend

This is my Monday oil for sure! The name speaks for itself as I love to use this in high pressure moments in my social working life!  When I know I have a busy day I like to apply a drop to my wrists and behind my ears. The smell is so soothing and makes me feel happy. I also put it on my diffuser bracelet and my kid clients love to smell it because it soothes them as well!

PEPPERMINT

Peppermint oil has a fresh, energizing aroma that is perfect to inhale before a workout, before taking a test, or on road trips – any time a boost to your performance is desired. Inhale peppermint oil before a meal and you may find you feel like eating less!

Apply a couple of drops of peppermint oil on your shoulders or feet and follow with cool, wet washcloth to help yourself stay cool on a hot summer day. Apply a drop or two of peppermint oil diluted in V6 oil on muscles after exertion. Massage a drop or two of peppermint oil on the temples, forehead, and back of neck to soothe everyday tensions and discomforts.

Add a drop of Peppermint Vitality oil to water to support healthy digestion. Add a drop of peppermint oil to Young Living’s chocolate Pure Protein Complete shake to make a “chocolate thin mint” shake! You can also take a few drops internally in homemade capsules to help optimize digestive health.

Go online to Google or Pubmed and type in “peppermint oil” to learn more about what science has revealed about this powerful plant!

N I N G X I A   R E D

In your starter kit, are 2-2oz packs of Ningxia Red!  I take 1 oz. of this drink every morning to support my immune system and overall health.  Ningxia red taste so good especially with a drop of citrus fresh oil in it! Taste like candy! Made from the Wolfberry from Ningxia, China! The people in Ningxia live over 100 years old without canes, glasses, or health problems! Gary Young wanted the secret, they told him its in the berries so he made this delicious drink!!

S O   M U C H   M O R E   T H A N   O I L S !  

Young Living is about a lifestyle of health, so feel free to check out all of their products ranging from oil-infused cleaners to skin-care to supplements!  We truly have it all!

My two personal must-haves other than the oils are Young Living’s probiotic, Life5 and Ningxia Red! I take both daily! (if you haven’t done your research on a probiotic, you should, everything in your body is linked to your gut health!)

Essential Rewards is totally your choice and you do not have to commit at all if you want to be a young living member! If you find yourself loving the products and are ordering every month, sign up, so you can receive the benefits and the points towards free products!!

Instructions for Getting Started with Young Living

Go to:
www.youngliving.com

Click on “Become a Member” in the top right corner.

  • It will automatically select Wholesale Member (this is what you want).
    This is just like Sams or Costco EXCEPT NO FEES.
    As a wholesale member you get 24% off of everything you purchase. NO yearly fee, NO monthly purchase requirements! If you signed up as only a retail customer you would have to pay the 24% markup…

Select your Country and Language

  • Select “I was referred by someone and I have their information”
  • Sponsor ID and Enroller ID should be filled with 10831456.
  • Hit Continue.

Choose Your Premium Starter Kit

  • For the most economic option I recommend the dewdrop diffuser, however, if you buy one of the upgraded diffusers during enrollment this will save you a lot of money rather than signing up and deciding later to buy an upgraded diffuser at wholesale pricing.
  • Step 2 is the Essential Rewards program OPTIONAL kits.
    • I usually recommend skipping this option as your starter kit will come with enough great oils to keep you satisfied for a while! You can sign up for Essential Rewards later for free after purchasing your premium starter kit.
    • ER is a program where you earn points for free oils from your purchases- however, to remain enrolled in ER you have to make at least 1 purchase at 50PV (personal volume, usually 1PV per dollar) per month. If you are not an ER member there is no monthly purchase requirement. You must only make 1 purchase of 50PV per year to keep a membership active and to keep your 24% discount. I will provide more info on ER program in a later post but please contact me with any questions. — go to next step if not interested in ER kit
    • Hit next at bottom of screen, a popup will appear asking if you’re sure you don’t want to enroll in autoship program- click on CONTINUE ENROLLMENT.
  • Or add additional products, you can search cedarwood for example and click add then continue…

  • Agree to the terms and conditions and hit continue for shipping and payment information. Finalize these details, review your order (and add products if you would like so as not to pay for any extra shipping) and Confirm!

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW PREMIUM STARTER KIT AND MEMBERSHIP!

Young Living Oils: Essentially in Love

young-livign
Even though I’ve been using essential oils for a while, I’ve always had this lurking suspicion that a lot of these companies may not be selling quite as “pure” of a product as they claim. Same goes for a lot of “all-natural” cleaning and skin care products. Even the term “organic” is often thrown around where it shouldn’t be sometimes…
The good news is that I’ve finally done the research and am proud to announce that I am really happy with what I found! I am so excited to be getting started on my journey with Young Living because they have 20 years of incredible service, an awesome mission, and an amazing line of products.
Here’s some basic info for all you newbies!

1. What’s in it for a Wholesale Member?

  • 24% off regular retail prices on oils, cleaning products, skin care, supplements, etc.
  • NO monthly or annual fee!
  • NO purchasing requirement – back out any time with no fuss, simply stop buying stuff!

    new-psk

2. Why go for the Premium Starter Kit?
  • Approximately 50% off retail price for:
    • Dewdrop Diffuser
    • 11 different Every Day Oils & Blends
      • Frankincense
      • Stress Away Blend
      • Lemon Vitality
      • Thieves Vitality Blend
      • Panaway Blend
      • Lavender
      • Copaiba Vitality
      • Peppermint Vitality
      • Purification Blend
      • R.C. Blend
      • Digize Vitality Blend
    • Two 2-oz packages of the delicious Ningxia Red supplement/energy drink
    • Tools & samples for sharing oils
    • And a few other goodies!
    • Total = $160 (plus taxes and shipping) – This is a great investment in your health and wellness that is bound to be worth it.
  • These 11 oils & blends are called Everyday Oils for a good reason. They are so versatile and so accessible — within my first FOUR days of receiving my kit I had already cracked open every single one of them.  Some of them I diffused, some I added to my water, some I applied to my skin, and some I used to make a cleaning spray for my house!
  • What if you really don’t want to spend that much right now? Or what if you really just want a specific item?
    • You can buy items separately at retail prices but you won’t get the 24% wholesale discount.  Of course, if you get the kit now, you will probably be glad that you did and then you can focus on your favorites in the future and still get the discount.
    • There are other kits to choose from (the cheapest is $45) but honestly, the premium kits are the absolute best value for your money.  Each of those 5ml bottles has 100 drops in it, so if you used just four drops per day of any of those oilsthis one kit could last you for almost a year! (11 bottles x 100 drops each / 4 drops per day = 275 days)
      • To be fair, its probably not going to last you that long, because you’ll probably be so excited and find so many uses for them all and will be sharing them too.  But the principle of the matter is that this $160 worth of oil goes a very long way!
    • If you REALLY don’t want to get the premium starter kit because you want just one thing and don’t want to pay retail prices, contact me and we will see what we can do.
3. Sharing vs. Selling
I do not sell Young Living products !
All I do is share the information so that you can save 24% with the wholesale discount and buy whatever you want directly from the people who make these amazing products.  And of course, once you fall in love with them you are free to share them also!
You DO NOT have to sell OR share if you don’t want to! 
When you sign up to buy as a wholesale member you are automatically listed as a distributor so that just in case you decide to tell someone else about the products, you don’t have to scramble to figure out how to get them signed up, it’s all taken care of.

However if for any reason you REALLY don’t want to be involved in sharing as a distributor you can always just give people my contact info and/or my ID number: 10831456.

4. What is the Essential Rewards Program?

  • This is a really great program that helps you to get even more discounts and freebies through a monthly autoship program.  If you start to use the products regularly, like most of us do, this will definitely be worth your while.  But I suggest starting of with the Premium Starter Kit and then you can always join Essential Rewards for free at any time.  –More on this in a separate blog post soon!
