Back to School Essentials with Young Living

One of the best things you can do before the start of the new school year is to invest in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit.  I wish my family had essential oils when my kids were babies, but I am SO glad that we have them when they begin school.  Besides the typical back to school essentials, don’t forget your Young Living Essential Oils!

Why the Premium Starter Kit?

The Premium Starter Kit includes 11 essential oils.  10 of these oils are considered “Everyday Oils” because of their versatility for daily use.  They are some of the most popular and best-selling oils.  They are the oils my family uses everyday.  Check out my order oils page for more information on the Premium Starter Kit.

*Always read your bottle labels, check out Young Living’s Web site for more information or contact member services for specific instructions.  If you are pregnant, nursing or under a Doctor’s care, speak with a Doctor first.  For children, make sure they are of appropriate age and are supervised by an adult when using these products.  Always remember for children – DILUTE, DILUTE, DILUTE.  

STRESS AWAY 

Oh, how I love Stress Away!  It is the first product to contain the unique combination of Lime and Vanilla pure therapeutic-grade essential oils.*  It also includes Copaiba and Lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium.*  It was created to combat normal everyday stress that may creep up into daily life.*  Click on My Morning Routine with Essential Oils to see one way I use Stress-Away daily.

My August Essential Rewards!

I just received my Young Living August Essential Rewards order in the mail!  This month I decided to order some things I knew my family would need for the upcoming school year, especially for the fall and winter months.  Are you prepared?  If not, I would love to chat with you.  Feel free to contact me!

Do you know about Essential Rewards (ER)?

ER is Young Living’s monthly auto-ship program.  This is NOT a requirement to become a Wholesale Member.  Once you are a member, I highly encourage checking it out, because it will save you money and earn you FREE items of your choosing at the same time.  For more information, click on Essential Rewards.

What did I order for August?

August ER order

V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex

When I first began using Young Living Essential Oils, I started with the Premium Starter Kit.  To be honest, I had NO clue what to do with the oils as soon as I got them.  They sat on my table for a few days, before I decided to give them a try.  I also was overwhelmed at my choices for a carrier oil.  Most of the essential oils recommend using a carrier oil to dilute the essential oil before applying it topically or using it as a dietary supplement.  Thankfully, I have an amazing “upline/enroller” who made the process of learning much easier.  She recommended starting with the most basic staple in my pantry – coconut or olive oil.  Both of these carrier oils work perfectly fine, but ever since I got my hands on Young Living’s V-6, it is all I will ever use!

V-6 is Young Living’s carrier oil.  It is made with organically grown coconut, sesame, grape, sweet almond, wheat, sunflower and olive oils.  It is used to dilute essential oils or for a massage.  It leaves the skin feeling smooth and nourished.*  What I love most about V-6 is there is no greasy or sticky residue and it will not clog pores or stain clothes!*

This month I ordered the large 32 oz. economy sized bottle to refill my smaller 8 oz. bottles.  I do have to say, this bottle lasts my family of 4 a very long time.  A little goes a long way!

Raven Essential Oil

Raven essential oil is great for the fall and winter.  We use it interchangeably with Ravintsara and R.C. essential oils.  They all provide a comforting and cooling aroma when applied topically or diffused.*  Raven is unique, because it is considered a “cleansing” oil blend.*  It contains the essential oils:  Ravintsara, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Lemon and Eucalyptus Radiata.

R.C. Essential Oil

R.C. is a Young Living best seller!  Since it is a favorite for many, it is now one of the 11 essential oils included in the Premium Starter Kit.  I’d say R.C. along with Thieves essential oil are the top 2 best sellers during back-to-school season!

What is R.C.?  It is an invigorating blend of Eucalyptus Globulus, Radiata, Citriodora, Myrtle, Spruce, Peppermint, Pine, Lavender, Marjoram, Cypress and the naturally occurring constituent limonene.  It creates a “spa-like” or calming atmosphere when diffused or inhaled directly.*  It is cooling and soothing when massaged with V-6 onto the chest and neck and even the bottoms of the feet before bedtime.*  As I said above, we alternate using R.C. with Raven and Ravintsara as often as needed.

SniffleEase Essential Oil

This is a NEW oil for my family!  SniffleEase is one of the 6 essential oil blends found in Young Living’s KidScents Oil Collection.  We were so excited when it was announced these oils were available individually!  We have been eager to try all of them, but SniffleEase was at the top of the list!  You know this will be a great one for the back-to-school season!

So, what is the KidScents Oil Collection?  It contains essential oil blends which were specifically formulated and designed just for kids.  Each oil blend represents a pure and natural alternative that can help comfort children through the common ups and downs of childhood.*

What is SniffleEase?  It is a rejuvenating and refreshing blend of Eucalyptus Blue, Palo Santo, Lavender, Dorado Azul, Ravintsara, Myrtle, Eucalyptus Globulus, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Cypress, Eucalyptus Radiata, Black Spruce and Peppermint oils.*    It can be applied topically or diffused up to 1 hour 3 times daily.
