Why I Recommend Getting Started with Young Living Essential Oils

What a great way to start to your oil journey, Young living is the WORLD LEADER in Essential Oils!
Gary Young the founder, is the father of distilling oils and he has made a great company to be a part of.


THE KIT you want is called the The Premium Starter Kit and it includes all 11 oils discussed below, a diffuser, 2-2oz packs of Ningxia Red, and a few other goodies!

ALSO it includes a 1-year membership as a whole sale member (=lots of discounts)…Best part about young living, no monthly fee, no monthly purchasing requirement, you don’t have to sell/share, NO COMMITMENTS!

This collection of oils is called the Everyday Oil Collection because you can find a reason to use each of these oils every single day.  These oils are the easiest to incorporate into your lifestyle, hence, why many people choose to start their oil journey with this incredible kit! Not to mention, it’s a great deal at almost 50% off the retail value of the included products. Now onto the wonderful oils!



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?!!



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 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 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.

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!!
