My December Young Living Order and FREEBIES!

Look at this haul!!!  This is everything from my December Young Living order and some added FREEBIES!  I buy products monthly on Young Living’s optional Essential Rewards program and this may be my biggest order to date!  This was the BEST month to order BIG because of the monthly promotion!  You don’t need to be an Essential Rewards member to take part in Young Living’s monthly promotions, but it has some added benefits.  This month I needed to stock up on a few necessities, try some new items and buy a few as gifts.  Check it out below!

Dec ER '15

What did I buy?

Essence of the Season 

This essential oil collection has been on my wish list since the day I started using oils. There is no better time to purchase it then right before Christmas!  I’m excited to make Essence of the Season part of our Christmastime tradition!

The festive box (pictured above) contains both Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils AND resins and Christmas Spirit essential oil blend.

Christmas Spirit 

We love to diffuse Christmas Spirit all year around!  It is an energizing and purifying blend of Orange, Cinnamon and Spruce essential oils.*

Shutran

I snuck Shutran into my husband’s Christmas stocking because it is his new favorite cologne (ok, maybe mine too).  This essential oil blend of Idaho Blue Spruce, Ocotea, Ylang Ylang, Hinoki, Coriander, Davana, Lavender, Cedarwood, Lemon and Northern Lights Black Spruce is made specifically for men to promote feelings of confidence and masculinity.*

Thieves

If you are familiar with Young Living and their unique essential oil blend, Thieves, then you know this is the oil to have on hand at all times.  If you are not familiar with Thieves, this is the first oil you should consider!  We use this daily for supporting a healthy immune and respiratory system.*

Lavender

Lavender is a necessity to stock up on!  I bought one this month and one was FREE with December’s monthly promotion.  I like to think of it as BOGO.  😉

Many people are familiar with Lavender, but do you know about Young Living’s Lavender?  Have you smelled true pure Lavender essential oil?  HEAVENLY!  We use this for so many things that it needs a few blogs of its own.  Some common uses for Lavender are calming the skin, relaxing the mind and body and as a fresh aroma to add to any room!*  Check out my post – DIY Lavender Linen Spray.

Lemon

Do you like flavored water or tea?  If so, add a drop of Young Living’s Lemon to your drink!  Lemon supports the circulatory system, energizes and cleanses the body.*  We like the benefits of this oil, but we also like the scent!*  Check out my post – Homemade Air Freshener with Essential Oils and substitute Lavender for Lemon for a citrusy clean aroma!

Deep Relief

I purchased this for a friend, but we make sure we don’t run out of this one either!  I keep one in my purse and my husband has one in his “oil bag.”  It is a convenient roll-on bottle of Peppermint, Wintergreen, Dorado Azul, Helichrysum essential oils.  We primarily use it on our temples, neck and back after a long day.*  It is cooling, refreshing and invigorating.*

Lip Balm Gift Set

So far I am a huge fan of the Young Living lip balms.  My 2 favorites are Lavender and Cinnamint.  Both of those as well as Grapefruit and the season-exclusive Vanillamint are included in the set.  I have the whole family using them now!  I love that we have found an all-natural lip balm that we can trust!

What did I get free?

Everyday Oils Collection

Yep, you read that correctly!  By meeting the PV requirements for December’s promotion, I received the whole Everyday Oil Collection for FREE.  This collection includes 10 essential oils – Frankincense, Thieves, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Tea Tree, PanAway, Joy, Purification and Stress Away.  These are the oils in the Premium Starter Kit.

Black Pepper

I didn’t own Black Pepper essential oil until I received it FREE in the promotion.  I am intrigued by the uses for it, but I haven’t figured out how I will personally use it yet. However, it is nice to have just in case!  According to Young Living’s website, it supports the digestive system and is great for muscles after exercise.*  I had no idea!

Lavender

As I stated above, I bought one bottle of Lavender this month and received one for FREE!  Woohoo!

L Briante Lip Gloss

YES!  I was so excited to receive this FREE because it’s been on my wish list since the Young Living convention in August 2015.  One of my favorite parts of the convention was trying out all the products!  I LOVED this one!  Did you know Young Living had lip gloss?!  This particular one is L Briante Lip Gloss Neutral/Winter Scent.  One end is a perfect neutral lip gloss and the other end is a beautiful essential oil blend of Vetiver, Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang for on-the-go beauty!

Thanks for checking out my December 2015 order and all of my FREEBIES!  Feel free to comment or contact me with questions!  I would love to hear from you!

Happy Oiling!

Amy

My March Essential Rewards!

Check out what my family ordered from Young Living this month for our March Essential Rewards.  Click on Essential Rewards (ER) to learn more about this program. March ER

What is Aroma Siez Essential Oil?

It is an essential oil blend made with Basil, Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint and Cypress.  This is an oil only used topically.  It can be massaged with a carrier oil right on an area of need.  It is typically used for tired muscles and ligaments after exercise, but can also be used on everyday aches from the body being exhausted or tense from occasional stressors.*  Aroma Siez can help by promoting normal body circulation.*

How do we use Aroma Siez?

A few weeks ago, my young son woke up with a stiff neck and shoulder.  The first oil I remembered to use was Aroma Siez massaged with a carrier oil.  As you may know, we use Young Living’s V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Complex for our carrier oil.  It massages into the skin leaving it smooth without a greasy residue.  Aroma Siez along with V-6 will be the first thing we grab next time any one of us wake up with a stiff neck!

What is Frankincense Essential Oil?

If you’ve heard anything about essential oils, you are more than likely familiar with Frankincense.  Frankincense can be used for MANY things.  It is most commonly used for skin support and relaxing the mind and body.*

How do we use Frankincense?

If you’ve been following my blog, you know how much I love my diffuser necklace!  Check out my blog post – Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace.  So far, my favorite oil to wear is Frankincense.  I love its sweet and warm scent, but most of all, I love its calming and relaxing properties.*

What is Lemon Essential Oil?

It is a powerful antioxidant containing 68% dlimonene for supporting a healthy immune system.*  It also can be used for supporting digestion, everyday stress, weight management and skin.*

I did purchase Lemon essential oil sample packets this month too.  These are great to carry on-the-go, because they very easily slip into a purse or even wallet.  I sometimes even carry the samples to share with others too.

What is Peppermint Essential Oil?

Peppermint is known for its minty aroma, but can potentially have many health benefits for the body as well!*  It is most commonly used for supporting a healthy digestive system.*

What is Animal Scents Ointment?

It is an ointment that contains Sesame, Palmarosa, Wheat, Carrot Seed, Geranium, Patchouli, Coriander, Idaho Balsam Fir, Myrrh, Melaleuca alternifoila, Rose Hip, Ylang Ylang and more!  It is a powerful soothing ointment used to protect an animal’s minor skin irritations.*  The ingredients are very gentle and safe.  If you are looking for a chemical-free, all-natural option, this would be a great choice!

How do we use Animal Scents Ointment?

Well, we do have pets, BUT I have heard so many great things about using this ointment on dry cracked feet.  I have to get these feet ready for spring and summertime!  This is my first time ordering it and I am really looking forward to trying it out!  I will keep you posted!

Everything I ordered this month, except the ointment is in the Premium Starter Kit.  They call the oils in the kit, “Everyday Oils,” because literally, you can use them every day.  Everything I just mentioned here is just the tip of the iceberg.  The uses and benefits for these oils are never-ending.  We have been very satisfied with the results of incorporating these oils into our daily lives.

If you want more information on the Premium Starter Kit and why I encourage it, check out my order oils page.  Also, click on Essential Rewards if you are interested in learning about Young Living’s Essential Rewards program.  It is an OPTIONAL auto-ship program, but with many extra added bonuses!  Check it out!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

Thank you,

Amy

6 Winter Diffuser Musts!

I feel like we have officially entered full-blown winter season, maybe because it looks like a blizzard outside here in the Midwest!  Well, here I will tell you what Young Living Essential Oils my family has been diffusing like crazy!  Here are what we believe to be “6 Winter Diffuser Musts!”

Immune Support

Thieves and ImmuPower are our musts for immune support.  We usually alternate them during the winter months or as needed.

Thieves is an essential oil blend made up of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary.  This blend is best known for its cleansing abilities and eliminating airborne bacteria.  It is highly effective in supporting a healthy immune system and good health.*

ImmuPower is an essential oil blend made up of Hyssop, Mountain Savory, Cistus, Camphor, Frankincense, Oregano, Clove, Cumin and Dorado azul.  This powerful essential oil creates a protective barrier and increases positive energy.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Pick either Thieves or ImmuPower 
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the essential oils to the diffuser
  3. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  4. For Thieves diffuse up to 10 minutes 3 times daily and for ImmuPower diffuse up to 30 minutes 3 times daily

Purify and Cleanse

Purification and Lemon are our musts to purify and cleanse the air.  We combine both of these essential oils into our diffuser.  Click on, “Homemade Air Freshener with Essential Oils,” to see another way we use this combination.

Purification is an essential oil blend made up of Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaleuca, Lavandin and Myrtle.  It is best known for its ability to cleanse impurities from surroundings while deodorizing and neutralizing the air.*

Lemon is a powerful single essential oil.  It is best known for its uplifting fresh aroma, its antioxidant and cleansing properties as well as its support for the nervous system.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Add 5 drops each of Purification and Lemon to the diffuser
  2. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  3. Diffuse up to 30 minutes 3 times daily

Respiratory Comfort

R.C. and Raven are our musts for respiratory comfort.  We alternate them during the winter months or as needed.

R.C. is an essential oil blend made up of Eucalyptus globulus, Myrtle, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus radiata, Eucalyptus citriodora, Lavender, Cypress, Spruce and Peppermint.  It is best known for its respiratory support especially during the cold winter months.*

Raven is an essential oil blend made up of Ravensara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata.  It also is known for its comforting properties and support for the respiratory system.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Pick either R.C. or Raven
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the essential oils to the diffuser
  3. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  4. Diffuse either R.C. or Raven up to 30 minutes 3 times daily

Uplift and Refresh

Sometimes during those winter months, you need to uplift and refresh your mood and Joy and Lemon are our musts!  Click on, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils,” to see another way in which I personally use Joy daily.

Joy is an essential oil blend made up of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa and Rose.  It is uplifting and refreshing for moods and inspires happiness all around.  It is the perfect oil to diffuse for everyday stress or if you need a little more energy to get you through the day.*  It’s also known to enhance romance and togetherness.*

Lemon as seen above is known for its “uplifting and refreshing properties,” which makes it a perfect addition to this diffuser combination!

Diffuser Directions

  1. Add 5 drops each of Joy and Lemon to the diffuser
  2. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  3. Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily

Blues Buster

Sometimes being stuck indoors for days on end during the winter months can make a person feel “blue.”  We call this trio our, “Blues Buster.”  Orange, Lavender and Frankincense in the diffuser are our musts!

Orange is a multi-purpose single essential oil.  It is commonly known to support a healthy immune system, promote relaxation and positive emotions.*

Lavender is the most well-known single essential oil.  It is the, “swiss army knife,” of essential oils.  It is commonly used for relaxation and occasional sleeplessness.  It also can reduce everyday stress of the mind and body.*

Frankincense is one of the oldest single essential oils.  It is commonly used to increase spiritual awareness, calm and soothe the body and mind while providing support to the nervous system.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Add 4 drops each of Orange, Lavender and Frankincense to the diffuser
  2. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  3. Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily

Relax and Sleep

Lavender and/or Peace & Calming are our musts to help us relax and sleep.  We usually alternate them in the diffuser during the winter months or as needed.

Lavender as seen above is commonly used for relaxation and occasional sleeplessness.

Peace & Calming is an essential oil blend made up of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy.  Just as the name states, it is commonly known to help bring peace and calm to the mind and body.  It is perfect to diffuse after a long day to help you wind down.

Diffuser Directions

  1. Pick either Lavender or Peace & Calming
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the essential oils to the diffuser
  3. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  4. Lavender or Peace & Calming can be diffused up to 1 hour 3 times daily
