My July Essential Rewards!

This month has been crazy!  I have been off the radar, because I am just trying to savor every moment with my kiddos before school starts again.  I cannot believe it’s right around the corner.  My July Essential Rewards order included oils to help start off the new school year on the right foot!  I’m sure my August Essential Rewards order will include even more for the upcoming school year!  This is the time to stock up!

Check out what I ordered – 

July ER '15

Thieves Essential Oil

By now you know, Thieves is the essential oil to have on hand at ALL times, especially during the school year.  It is Young Living’s own blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils.  It also contains the naturally derived constituents limonene, eugenol and eucalyptol.  This unique oil can help support a healthy immune system and help to maintain overall wellness.  It is used as a dietary supplement and makes for a great addition to some foods and beverages.

Valor II Essential Oil

Who has gotten their hands on Young Living’s newest additions – Valor II and Peace & Calming II?  I am so excited about these!  It’s nice to have a very comparable option when one is out-of-stock.  Valor and Peace & Calming have been favorites for many!  Since Young Living only wants to provide the BEST quality, there has been a limited supply do to unforeseen weather conditions affecting the harvest.  Young Living decided to formulate these two new blends which may provide the same benefits as their predecessors and work complimentary together.

Valor II is a blend of Ylang Ylang, Rosewood, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Matricaria, Idaho Blue Spruce, Frankincense, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia and Davana oils.  It also includes the naturally derived constituents linalol, alpha-pinene, camphene and limonene.  Valor II has a calming and uplifting aroma.  It can be diffused or applied topically.

GeneYus Essential Oil

Did you know, you can now purchase the essential oils from the KidScents Oil Collection individually?  I know this was great news for many!  This collection includes 6 oils specially formulated for children which may help common ups and downs of childhood.  GeneYus is an oil blend in the kit.  I purchased it for my young son for the new school year.  I am very excited to try it out.  It may help young minds focus and concentrate (especially great for those school projects).  I plan to apply it to his diffuser necklace in the morning before school.  I will keep you posted on how we like it!  😉

Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium known for its sweet flowery aroma is excellent for the skin, calming the mind and body and supporting the circulatory and nervous systems.*  It can be diffused or applied topically.

Jade Lemon Essential Oil

According to Young Living, Jade Lemon is grown in the warm, humid climate of Southeast China. While other lemons begin to release some of their oils aromatically as they turn yellow, the jade lemon fruit remains green even in maturity, allowing the concentration of oil to continue within the fruit.  The oil is released only after the fruit is picked, giving it a richer and more fragrant aroma.

So, why use Jade Lemon essential oil?  Besides its wonderful fruity aroma, it can also provide many health benefits.*  Jade Lemon contains high amounts of d-limonene, which is great for supporting a healthy immune system.*  Also, this oil can uplift and energize the mind and body and support skin health.*

If you are an Essential Rewards member, you will receive 20 points if your monthly order is 250 PV or above.  20 points is equivalent to a FREE $20 to spend on Young Living products for future purchases.

Reusing Essential Oil Bottles

Are you starting to become oil savvy and have a collection of empty essential oil bottles?  DO NOT THROW THEM IN THE GARBAGE!  YOU CAN RESUSE THEM!  Follow the steps below to see how I prepare the bottles to be reused!

Step

The first step is to gather up all of your empty essential oil bottles.  You can do them all at once or just pick a few to do together.  I decided to use our empty Thieves bottles and the one empty Peppermint bottle I had.  You can see Thieves is a favorite in my household and we have been using it a lot this season!

Step

The second step is to carefully remove all labels.  On the back of each Young Living bottle label there is a “peel here” printed small.  If you start to pull from there, sometimes it will come off nice and easily.  If you still have residue, no worries!  I will show you a few great tricks in step six and eight.  For now, just leave them be.

Step

The third step is to open the bottles by removing the lid and drop reducer.  Once the drop reducer is off, you may be able to get a little more oil from the bottle.  What do you do do with it?  Well, there are many options, but I will tell you my favorite way to use up each and every last drop!  I make relaxing and refreshing epsom bath salts!

Start with a large glass jar or container.  I say glass, because some of the citrus oils can erode plastic.  Then fill the jar about 1/3 or 1/2 of the way with epsom salt.  Then split up the bottles in 2 groups.  I take one group of open bottles and dump the remnants into the jar of bath salts.  Once all the oil is out, toss the bottles, lids and drop reducers in the jar too.  The epsom salts will absorb any remaining oil.

Step

The fourth step is to add more epsom salts.  Fill the jar, but leave room at the top to do the next grouping of bottles.  Then take a second group of bottles and dump their remnants and toss in the bottles, lids and drop reducers.

Step

Put the lid on the jar and tighten it.  Then begin shaking it very delicately and make sure everything is moving around well.  It’s very important to do this lightly, because the essential oil bottles and jar are glass.  Shaking it around helps to disperse the remaining oil more evenly throughout the epsom salts.  After that just let it sit for an hour or more.

Step

Now onto the sixth step – we are getting there!  Carefully dump the jar into a glass bowl, so you can sift through to get out all of the bottle pieces.  As I take out everything, I try to get as many salts as possible out and off of the bottles.  Then place the bottles and pieces in a separate bowl filled with water and a half capful of Thieves Household Cleaner.  The salt helped to absorb the remaining oil and the water with Thieves cleaner will help to clean the bottles for reuse.  If you are doing this at home and do not have Thieves Household Cleaner, another option would be vinegar and water.  I let everything sit for about 20 minutes.

For step seven, it is time to get the salts back into the jar.  You could very easily use a funnel for this.  I only had a plastic funnel and I just preferred to use a makeshift one instead to be sure no harmful chemicals leached from the plastic.  Remember, as I stated in step three, some citrus oils can erode plastic.  So, I erred on the side of caution and did it this way.  If you have a better option, by all means, go for it!

After everything has been sitting in the bowl with water and Thieves cleaner for awhile, I then pick up the pieces and gently rub away any label residue.  I did not have to do step eight, because the Thieves cleaner worked well at getting all of the leftover residue off.  If you are doing this and still have residue, Lemon essential oil works great!  I use this oil all the time for any stubborn gunk that won’t budge!  It is amazing!

Step 

For step nine, I dry off all the pieces.  I sometimes leave them overnight upside down on a dish drying rack.

Now that the bottles are all emptied and freshly cleaned, I can decide what to do with them.  In step ten, I show how you can take an old bottle and exchange the lid for a roller-ball and cap.  Young Living makes their own, which fit the bottles perfectly.  They are called AromaGlide Roller Fitments.  I mainly use roller bottles for pre-diluted oils or to create my own oil blends.

Step

For step eleven, I completed putting all the clean bottles back together.  Now, here are some of my favorite ways to reuse them –

  1. Mix up a sleepy-time blend of Lavender, Peace & Calming and Cedarwood essential oils with V-6 and a roller fitment
  2. For those everyday aches, we use Pan-Away and Valor essential oils with V-6 and a roller fitment
  3. Create bottles specifically for the kids, pre-diluted and ready to use
  4. Make bottle samples as gifts for family and friends

Step

Step twelve is pretty simple, but fun!  It is an optional step, but if you like getting creative, now is your chance!  I love labeling my jars, containers and essential oil bottles.  I didn’t go too crazy with this one pictured, just because the jar is decoration enough and there wasn’t much space for a label.  Sometimes it’s fun to use ribbon or twine, especially for a gift.

I hope you found this post helpful! Contact me if you have any questions!  I would love to hear from you!

Thank you,

Amy
