My January Essential Rewards!

Check out what arrived on our doorstep this month for our Young Living Essential Rewards order!  Click on Essential Rewards (ER) to learn about Young Living’s optional autoship program.

What is Bergamot?

Bergamot is used for skin support, relaxation, uplifting spirits and building confidence.*

How will my family use Bergamot?

We love trying and experimenting with essential oils for everyday stress and to help with relaxation.  This is a new oil we are adding to our collection.  It’s always fun to change things up!  Currently, for everyday stress we use Stress-Away, Joy, Peace & Calming, Lavender and Tranquil.  We have heard so many great testimonials about using Bergamot applied to the temples and forehead.

Secondly, did you know some people consider this beard season?  Haha!  Well, living in the midwest, my husband is still sporting his facial hair.  He loves trying out different razors, clippers, shaving creams/gels, etc. (By the way, this is something I know nothing about).  We found a great oil combination for “beard-softening,” which he is looking forward to trying and secretly, I am looking forward to him trying too. Check out the recipe below –

Beard-Softening Oil Recipe
In a 2 oz. glass bottle, add the following:
10 Drops of Bergamot Essential Oil
5 Drops of Patchouli Essential Oil
3 Drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil
Top off with Young Living’s V-6 Oil Complex

What is White Angelica?

White Angelica is an essential oil blend made with Bergamot, Geranium, Myrrh, Sandalwood, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Spruce, Hyssop, Melissa and Rose essential oils with a base of almond oil.  It is primarily used for emotional support to calm and settle occasional nervousness or stress.*  It can be used aromatically or topically.  It works great applied to the top of the shoulders, on the spine, crown of head, wrists, behind the ears and the back of the neck.

How will my family use White Angelica?

Did you notice Bergamot is used in the blend as well?  White Angelica is another oil we are excited to try for occasional everyday stress – there are lots of options for this!* I’m looking forward to using it in my new diffuser necklace (blog post coming soon)!

As soon as I opened White Angelica, I knew it was going to be my new “perfume.” The aroma is soft and beautiful.  I normally call Joy essential oil my “perfume,” but this one will definitely be my new favorite!  Click on, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils,” to see how I start everyday with Stress-Away and Joy.  I love that I have eliminated store-bought perfumes from my home and now use 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.  Not only are they all-natural, but they can be very beneficial for your health and wellness.*

What is DiGize?

DiGize is an essential oil blend made with Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise and Patchouli essential oils.  It is used to support a healthy digestive system.*  It is recommended to use a vegetable capsule and dilute 1 drop with 4 drops of an oil carrier (such as, Young Living’s V-6 Oil Complex).  One drop can also be added to 4 oz. of goat’s or rice milk.  Check out the supplement facts below.

How will my family use DiGize?

DiGize is our favorite oil to use for our digestive system!  We carry this one with us at all times.  A fellow Young Living Member recommended it for our young son and it has worked great for him!  My husband also takes DiGize in a vegetable capsule or in a cup of milk as often as needed.  He has had wonderful success with it.

What is Peace & Calming?

Peace & Calming is an essential oil blend made with Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy essential oils.  The name itself describes this oil.  It is the ultimate oil to help bring peace and calm to the mind and body.*  It settles tensions, eases nervousness, uplifts spirits and promotes relaxation and sleep.*

How will my family use Peace & Calming?

We love to use Peace & Calming in our home diffuser.  All you need is approximately 4-5 drops with water in the diffuser.  You can always adjust the number of drops you prefer.

We use Peace & Calming everyday in our household.  We have been applying this oil daily to our daughter’s feet before bedtime.  It is a very gentle oil.  If you have an AromaGlide Roller Fitment (roller-ball) this is the perfect bottle of oil to add it to.  It makes it much easier and convenient to apply.

We sometimes add a few drops of Peace & Calming to a 1/2 cup of Epsom salt and let it run under warm bath water.  It is great for relaxation and helps the mind unwind before bedtime.*

If we are feeling overtired, irritable or just normal everyday stress, Peace & Calming can be added to the Vita-Flex points of the feet.*

Another way we like to use this oil is massaged onto the backs of our dogs’ ears or on their paws.  We have 2 Yorkshire Terriers and they tend to get a little rambunctious from time to time.  Peace & Calming does the trick!  We even notice a difference when it is just diffused.

What is Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash? 

Thieves Mouthwash contains essentials oils to support healthy gums and teeth.*  After brushing your teeth, rinse your mouth with one tablespoon or capful of Thieves Mouthwash for 30-60 seconds or as needed.  Best part?  It is all natural and safe and made with the best combination of oils to support a healthy immune system!*  Thieves essential oil blend is included in the Premium Starter Kit.  If we had to choose one oil, Thieves would be it and most people agree.  If you love Thieves oil, you will love this mouthwash.  Check out my recent blog post, “Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash.”

How will my family use Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash?

This is only our second bottle of Thieves Mouthwash.  My husband and I both use it daily.  To be honest, if you have sensitive tastebuds, it’s definitely something you have to get used to.  My husband fills the cap with straight mouthwash, I on the other hand, do half mouthwash and half water.  It seems to work great for both of us.  I love knowing we aren’t putting harmful chemicals or ingredients in our bodies either.

If you are interested in trying any of these oils mentioned or are ready to begin your oil journey, I would love to help you.  The best way to start is with the Premium Starter Kit as you can see on my order oils page.  If you have questions, feel free to contact me at any time and I will do my best to respond as soon as possible.

Thank you!

Amy

July 2014 Young Living Promotion!

I knew I was hooked on Young Living essential oils when the anticipation of the next month’s promotion was very exciting!  Every month for retail and wholesale customers, Young Living has a new promotion available if you meet the (PV) requirements in a single order.  There is NO obligation to take part in the promotion, but if you know you will be purchasing close to or approximately $190 or more, you can qualify to receive the FREE product!

What is (PV) anyways?

(PV) means, “Personal Volume,” which is the total volume of products you have purchased.  All of Young Living essential oils have a (PV).  You can find the (PV) in the product guide and when you place an order.  For example, if an oil is $17.00, more than likely, the (PV) will also be 17.  If I ordered $190.00 of essential oils than my (PV) will be approximately 190.  Hopefully, this makes sense.  Please feel free to contact me for further information.  I’d be happy to help!

What is FREE this month?

190 PV – 1 bottle of Bergamot essential oil (5ml) and 1 bottle of Ylang Ylang essential oil (5ml).

250 PV – 1 bottle of Bergamot essential oil (5ml), 1 bottle of Ylang Ylang essential oil (5ml) and $15 in product credit.

300 PV – 1 bottle of Bergamot essential oil (5ml), 1 bottle of Ylang Ylang essential oil (5ml), $15 in product credit AND 10% back in Essential Reward (ER) points.

Bergamot Essential Oil 

Bergamot is a single oil produced from a large fruit the size of an orange, but the color similar to a lemon.  It has a sweet, fresh and citrusy aroma.  It is an essential oil used to support a healthy nervous system and used for skin support.  Because Bergamot is a citrus essential oil, it is best to avoid direct sunlight for 48 hours after it is used.  As with anything new, if you are in your doctor’s care, please consult before use.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil 

Ylang Ylang is a single oil derived from the Cananga tree flower.  Because of it’s flowery aroma, many people like to use it as a perfume.  I don’t know about you, but I’d love an ALL-NATURAL and CHEMICAL-FREE perfume, so why not Ylang Ylang?  It is also used to help promote romance!  It can help relax and calm the mind of everyday tension too.  I love Ylang Ylang, because of it’s endless amount of uses!  If you are in your doctor’s care or are pregnant, please consult with them first.

$15 Product Credit

If you have an order at 250 (PV) or more, you will receive a $15 product credit from Young Living!  This is used just like cash!  You can use it toward any Young Living product.

10% Back in Essential Reward (ER) Points

In order to take part in this FREEBIE, you must be enrolled in the Young Living Essential Rewards (ER) Program.  It is an OPTIONAL auto-ship program designed to give you FREE product regularly and reduced shipping rates.  Every order placed, you receive points and these points are like FREE cash to use on any Young Living product.  You can still take advantage of this monthly promotion if you are a retail customer, but you will not be able to use the 10% back unless you are enrolled in ER.  If you are interested in enrolling or would like to know how to become a wholesale member (receiving 24% off of all purchases), please see my Order Oils page or contact me directly for more information.  I would be happy to explain this more in depth with you.  It is truly a great program if you are ordering regularly and would like to take full advantage of the monthly promotions.
