What are Essential Rewards (ER)?
CLICK—> here to learn about ER.
As you learned from the link above, ER is an OPTIONAL auto-ship program (not a requirement by any means). Though if you are anything like me, you will eventually want to join the program to not miss out on FREE product and promotions! If you have any questions about ER, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be happy to assist you!
What did I order for July?
V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex
I love V-6! I think it is the perfect, “carrier oil,” for diluting any of your essential oils or blends! A carrier also known as a, “base,” or “vegetable,” oil, literally, “carries,” an essential oil into your skin. These oils alone can have therapeutic properties, so it is important to make sure you are choosing the right one for you. Some examples of these oils are: avocado, coconut, jojoba, olive, and sesame oil just to name a few. V-6 contains most of these and more! It is made with coconut, sesame seed, grape seed, sweet almond, wheat germ, sunflower seed and olive fruit oils. I would definitely encourage Young Living’s V-6 as your carrier oil of choice, because it is made specifically for Young Living essential oils and it’s versatility is endless.
So, why do you need a carrier oil anyways? Some essential oils are considered “hot” oils, which can cause irritation to especially sensitive skin. To avoid a possible reaction to a hot oil, it’s advised to use a carrier oil with it. All Young Living bottle labels will inform you if a carrier is recommended.
Another reason you would use a carrier is if you want to massage the oil deeper into your skin. Many massage therapists and aromatherapists use carrier oils to make sure you are receiving all of the benefits of the essential oil. It drives it deeper and makes it last longer.
Why do I love to use V-6? When I first started using Young Living, I primarily used coconut oil. I had a very difficult time working with it. I prefer a liquid oil that can spread more easily onto the skin. I found V-6 to be my favorite for this reason. Most of the time when you think of putting oil on your skin, you think of the oily residue it will leave behind. V-6 rubs completely into your skin without leaving any residue. I also love the bottle it comes in with the pump. The pump makes it easier to count the specific number of drops you want.
V-6 can be purchased directly through Young Living in either an 8 oz. bottle with the pump included or in a 32 oz. refill bottle. I have found that the 8 oz. bottle can last you a long time! Remember a little oil goes a long way!
Oil Bottle Cap Labels
I was so excited to finally receive these! I just recently found a new way to organize all of my oils and supplies and these labels were a must! Keep on the look out, because soon I will have a blog about how I stay organized!
What is included for the labels? All of the labels for every essential oil and blend Young Living carries! You even get extras if you are like me and have a few extra bottles of your favorite oils. They are all color coordinated and fit perfectly on the 5 ml and 15 ml bottles. No matter where you store your oils, these labels will help you spot what you’re looking for quickly.
Melaleuca (Alternifolia) Essential Oil
This is a new oil for my family. I cannot tell you how many times I hear to try out Melaleuca (Alternifolia) oil! It is most commonly known as, “Tea Tree oil,” and used to support a healthy immune system, skin and more! It is a very gentle oil and doesn’t require dilution.
Lavender Essential Oil
Well, if you’ve been following my blog, Facebook or Pinterest, you’ve heard me talk about how much my family loves Lavender. We love it so much that we need to stock up on it! We use it primarily for skin support and relaxation. Lavender is an, “everyday oil,” included in your Premium Starter Kit.
Thieves Essential Oil (last, but definitely NOT least)
Thieves is an essential oil blend every family should have! It is highly effective in supporting a healthy immune system. It’s blend is made with cinnamon, clove, Eucalyptus radiata, lemon and rosemary. Thieves is an, “everyday oil,” included in the Premium Starter Kit. This is definitely the oil to have during the fall and winter months, so we are stocking up!
Young Living offers a variety of products with Thieves essential oils as well. They have Thieves cleaners, which can replace your typical household cleansers while providing a safer alternative without all the chemicals and toxins. Young Living also sells Thieves hand and body soap, hand purifier, cleansing wipes, toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss and lozenges.
