Premium Starter Kit Diffuser Options

Did you know as of June 2015, you can now choose your essential oil diffuser in the Premium Starter Kit?  For more information on this new kit, click on, “Young Living’s New US Premium Starter Kit!

Check out the new diffuser options – 

Young Living Diffuser Options

In the above graphic, you can see the name of each diffuser along with an image and a short description.  You will also see the area of room each one covers, the duration it runs, the size of the machine and weight, the amount it holds, the sound frequency, additional added features and the cost.  To see even more diffusers Young Living offers, click on “Diffuser Comparison Chart.”

I personally love the Home Diffuser and the Dewdrop Diffuser.  I do not have experience with the Bamboo or the Aria Ultrasonic.  I have been eyeing the Aria Ultrasonic for awhile, because I love the design and the additional features, which are the remote control and the music option.  I’m hoping to add that one to my collection at some point in the near future.  Once you own 1 diffuser, you will want one for every room and maybe even a portable one for traveling or at the office.  Diffusing is my absolute favorite way to use the oils!

If you already own a Premium Starter Kit and are interested in purchasing another diffuser, you can most certainly do that too!  As you may know, once you purchase the kit, you are considered a Wholesale Member and everything you buy after that will be 24% off of the retail cost with reduced shipping.

How do you order the Premium Starter Kit and select a diffuser?

Go to my “order oils” page, scroll down and select the button, “click to enroll.”  Once you click that button, you will be taken to Young Living’s website where you will order.  Make sure Wholesale Member is selected and then pick your kit and your diffuser!  If you need more help with the process, I have a short video on my “order oils” page.

Feel free to contact me with any questions!

Thank you and happy shopping!

8 BEST Diffuser Blends for Sleep!

Many people wrestle with restlessness and yearn for a peaceful night’s sleep.  I am one of those people!  Like many, I feel like crashing in the afternoon every single day, but as soon as I hit the bed at night, I am WIDE awake.  Who can relate?!  One of the many reasons I was excited to venture into using essential oils was to find a natural solution for sleep!  There are many Young Living Essential Oils to aid with occasional sleeplessness.*  They can be used aromatically, topically and as a dietary supplement.*  Here I will explain what oils I use aromatically in a diffuser!  These are just some of my favorites.  What is so fun about essential oils is you can keep experimenting until you find what works best for you!

Check out my diffuser blends for sleep

diffuser for sleep

What is RutaVala Essential Oil?

RutaVala is an essential oil blend made with Ruta, Lavender and Valerian essential oils.  It is great for relaxing the mind and body and promoting sleep.*  Diffused an hour before bedtime RutaVala can help ease any tension or stress.*  What makes RutaVala more unique than the other oils used for sleep?  It is already formulated and blended for you!  Not only that, the refreshing scent is lovely!  Many people even use it topically in Young Living’s Roll-On for an added effect or just as an everyday perfume.

Lavender and Peace & Calming

This is my favorite blend to use for bedtime.  We sometimes diffuse both Lavender and Peace & Calming together or diffuse them individually as well.  In almost all of these blends, you will see Lavender essential oil.   In past blog posts, I have talked about Lavender being the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils, because you can literally use it for almost everything.   Its most common use is for relaxation and sleep.*  If you use “true” Lavender, such as Young Living’s Lavender Essential Oil, you will safely experience the real benefits of this oil.*  To learn more about 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils, check out my page – Why Choose Young Living?

Peace & Calming is an essential oil blend made with Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang and Patchouli.  Peace & Calming has been a favorite in my house since my daughter was born.  As you know, infants can wake up numerous times a night.  Once we started using Peace & Calming, our nights have been way more peaceful.*  This blend alone made us essential oil believers.

Lavender and Bergamot

We know Lavender is great for relaxing the mind and body, but why add Bergamot?  It is used for hormonal support and adds a sweet citrus scent to the diffuser blend.  Citrus oils can aid in relaxation as well,  but they are excellent for uplifting moods!*  This blend can help you go to sleep with a smile on your face.  😉

Frankincense and Vetiver

This blend is a personal favorite of mine.  I use Frankincense daily in my diffuser necklace.  Check out my blog post – Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace.  Frankincense helps me with everyday stress and tension.*  It can be used for so many other things, but for me, this is one of my favorites for that reason.  I also love the stimulating aroma!

Many people use Vetiver aromatically and topically.  According to Dr. Terry Friedmann, “this oil is one of the highest in sesquiterpenes and can be used to improve children’s behavior.”*  “It is psychologically grounding, calming and stabilizing.”*  On a side note, this oil is VERY thick, so do not be alarmed if you have never used it before.  Sometimes adding a glass dropper to the bottle can make it easier for application.

So why these two together?  It is just another option when I feel like changing things up.  Like I said, I use Frankincense daily already, so as I sleep it is an added bonus.  These oils work well together and have a fantastic aroma when combined.

Lavender, Cedarwood, Peace & Calming

Sometimes we add Cedarwood to the diffuser blend of Lavender and Peace & Calming.  Why Cedarwood?  It can add a different aroma to the mix.  It has an outdoor, woodsy aroma.  It is also known for its soothing and calming abilities when massaged topically with a carrier oil to the skin.*  If it relaxes the body when used topically, it more than likely will relax the body when used aromatically.*  Like I said, it’s all about experimentation with different combinations.

Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Vetiver

We now know Lavender and Vetiver are used for calming the mind and body and aiding in sleep.*  Why add Roman Chamomile?  Because, this is one of the most gentle of the essential oils and it is great for small children along with the oils, Lavender and Vetiver.  This is a combination we would diffuse in our kids room for a restful nights sleep.*

Lavender, Vetiver, Valerian and Orange

Valerian is an essential oil in the RutaVala blend.  According to Young Living, “Valerian has been clinically investigated for its relaxing properties.  Researchers have pinpointed the sesquiterpenes, valerenic acid and valerone as the active constitutes that exert a calming and restorative effect on the central nervous system.”*

Orange is one of my favorite citrus oils.  It is also a relaxant, but its citrus aroma also can uplift spirits and moods.*  It can help the mind feel at peace and bring about a sense of happiness.*  It is in the Peace & Calming blend as well.  More importantly, it contains the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, which can assist in maintaining a healthy immune system.*

Lavender, Bergamot, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang

This combination is very similar to the Lavender and Peace & Calming diffuser blend, but with the added benefit of Bergamot.  Patchouli and Ylang Ylang are a few of the oils in Peace & Calming.  Bergamot gives this blend the citrus kick for uplifting moods, but also the extra relaxation properties for a better nights rest.

I realize many of these diffuser blends are similar, but sometimes the slight change in a recipe can make a difference in how you feel.  Keep trying until you find something that works for you!

Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace

I am very grateful for being introduced to essential oil jewelry!  Once I saw these amazing pendant diffuser necklaces I knew I had to have one.  Not only are they completely functional, but stylish too!  Who wouldn’t love their own personal diffuser on them wherever they go?!


I ordered my necklace from Sacred Arrow Therapeutic Jewelry and Gifts. I came across their website on Facebook and started following them on Instagram as well.  I wanted to choose a necklace I could wear everyday, so I thought this one was perfect!  It was simpler than most, but still very beautiful and unique.  The one I purchased is their Signature Pendant Diffuser Necklace, which is stainless steel, tarnish-resistant, hypoallergenic and engraved with their name, “Sacred Arrow.”  The hypoallergenic had me sold, because I tend to have sensitive skin.

Each necklace comes with 3 high quality and non-toxic leather disks where you add your oil.  Some necklaces I’ve seen come with felt, cotton or cork.  I personally love the leather, because it is a more durable material that will last.  I also love the fact that the leather will not destroy any benefits of the essential oil (which is extremely important) and the oil cannot harm the leather either.


All you have to do is add 1-3 drops of an essential oil to the leather disk and then place it inside the pendant.  Let me just say, the aroma lasts way longer than I expected!  Depending on the oil, I do not have to add more for another week!  Believe it or not, I have been wearing this necklace every single day since I got it!  I love it that much!

So far, I have really enjoyed using Joy and Frankincense in my diffuser necklace.  To see how else I use Joy, check out my blog post, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils.”

I tend to have occasional everyday stress and these oils have really helped me combat it.  Frankincense is actually a new favorite for stress.  I also really love the sweet and warm scent.

I am looking forward to trying Citronella essential oil in my necklace this summer!  Citronella, as many people know, is a wonderful insect deterrent.  I LOVE summer nights and I don’t want the mosquitos getting in the way of enjoying the outdoors.  I will keep you posted whether or not this is effective!

If you are interested in a diffuser necklace, I highly recommend checking out Sacred Arrow.  They have a great mission too that you can read about more in depth on their website.  Not only do they create stunning jewelry, but they bless people fighting cancer with Sacred Frankincense essential oil by using a portion of their profits to purchase it for those in need.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Feel free to contact me at any time.  If you are interested in essential oils and want more information, just send me your email address and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  I would love for you to join me on this oil journey!

Thank you!
