June 2015 Young Living Promotion!

Hello SUMMER and hello Young Living June Promotion!  The first of every month, Young Living rolls out a new promotion.  It’s always exciting to see what FREEBIES are offered!  Remember, any Retail Customer or Wholesale Member can take part in these promotions.  To qualify, you just have to meet the minimum “PV” or “Personal Volume/Product Value,” requirements in a single order.  Also, to receive the Essential Rewards (ER) exclusive bonuses, you must be enrolled in ER.  Click on Essential Rewards to learn more about this optional monthly auto-ship program.

What’s free for June?

Free for June '15

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.*

20 Essential Reward (ER) Points

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.

Life 5 Probiotic Capsules

Life 5 – delayed-release capsules are a powerful combination of 5 probiotic strains which can help support intestinal health and healthy immune function.*  Young Living recommends taking 1 capsule every night following a meal.*

If you have questions, feel free to contact me or check out my order oils page to learn how to become a Retail Customer or Wholesale Member.

My May Essential Rewards!

My Young Living May Essential Rewards order arrived!  I receive Young Living every month with this optional auto-ship program and it is amazing!  You can change it every month, schedule when it arrives and earn points for FREE product!  Click on “Essential Rewards” for more information.  This month I had a smaller order and I just needed to replenish some of our favorites.  I did order 2 new ones that I am excited to try!  Check it out below!

MAY ER '15

What are some of our favorites?

R.C., Thieves and Peppermint are essential oils we order often.  Thieves and Peppermint we typically use everyday (hence, why they are included in the “Everyday Oil” collection.)  See more of the “Everyday Oils” on my order oils page.

R.C. is perfect rubbed with a carrier oil onto the bottom of the feet or chest for respiratory support or comfort.*  We find this handy in the springtime!  What makes it so effective?  It is made up of a unique combination of oils including, Cypress, Spruce, Eucalyptus Globulus, Eucalyptus Radiata and Eucalyptus Citriodora.

Some of our favorite uses for Thieves are for immune system support and for our spring cleaning.*  Check out my blog post, “Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils.”

I’m not sure who uses Peppermint more in our house?  We love using Peppermint for supporting normal digestion.*

What new oils did I order this month?

Cypress essential oil provides comfort during season changes.*  It can be rubbed with a carrier oil onto the chest for healthy lung function.*  As you may have noticed, it is one of the oils in the  R.C. blend.  Some other uses for Cypress include:  skin support and restoring feelings of security and stability.*

Breathe Again essential oil blend has been on my list of oils to purchase for a long time and I finally ordered it this month.  You can pretty much figure out what this oil is used for by the name.  This blend of Eucalyptus Staigeriana, Eucalyptus Globulus, Eucalyptus Radiata, Eucalyptus Blue, Peppermint, Myrtle and Copaiba is specifically formulated for supporting respiratory health.*  It is  made in a convenient, ready to use roll-on for carrying on-the-go in a purse, bag or pocket.

Thank you for checking out my post!

Homemade Air Freshener with Essential Oils

Did you know?

Air Fresheners have become a staple in most households and businesses.  They include: sprays, plug-ins, candles, carpet powders and more.  Unfortunately, after reading product labels, I have found most are NOT safe, even the ones labeled, “pure,” or “natural.”  Most contain dangerous toxic chemicals.  I don’t know about you, but I’m not willing to risk my family’s health for a flowery superficial aroma.

What do we do? 

We make our own!!  We put in an amber glass spray bottle a few essential oils and water, that’s all it takes – so easy!  What is so great about this is it’s 100% NATURAL and SAFE and the aroma cannot compare to your traditional air freshener.  This aroma is actually, “FRESH,”  there is nothing, “fresh,” about store bought air fresheners.  Take a look at the graphic below for the recipe we love.

 

DIY AIR FRESHENER

Guess what?  Lavender and Purification essential oils are included in the Premium Starter Kit!  This everyday kit has everything you need to get started on your oil journey!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I’d be happy to help!

My June Essential Rewards Order!

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.  If you are anything like me, you will eventually want to join the program.  If you’re ordering oils, it makes sense to earn FREE product at the same time! What’s great about ER is that you get to take part in the monthly promotions as well!  This month if you ordered 190 PV ($190), you received 1 FREE 15 mL bottle of Citrus Fresh, Lemon and Purification.  I decided to take advantage of this offer, because I needed to replenish my stock of these essential oils!

What did I order?

Carrot Seed – It is a single oil commonly used for digestive and joint support.

Citronella – It is a single oil mostly known for being an insect deterrent, but can also help everyday stress, occasional aches, skin, odors and even prevent food from spoiling.  We are using it to make our own dusk spray for all of those summer nights outside.

En-R-Gee – It is a blend made with Rosemary, Juniper, Lemongrass, Nutmeg, Idaho Balsam Fir, Clove and Black Pepper.  En-R-Gee is obviously used for ENERGY!  It is a great uplifting and stimulating oil blend.  We couldn’t wait to add this one to our collection.

Lemongrass – It is a single oil commonly used for supporting a healthy immune and circulatory system, occasional aches and improving mental clarity.

Orange – It is a single oil commonly used for everyday stress and skin.  We use orange for stress and for it’s antioxidant properties.

Peace and Calming – It is a blend made with Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy.  It is commonly used for everyday stress, relaxation and sleep.  It is one of our favorites!  This oil has helped our youngest stay asleep ALL night.  We also like using it in the bath before bedtime.

Valor – It is a blend made with Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense and Coconut oil. It is commonly used for occasional aches, everyday stress and sleep.  We like Valor for ALL of these reasons!

Ylang Ylang – It is a single oil commonly used for everyday stress and nervousness, skin, sleep and some people use it as a perfume, because of it’s sweet, flowery aroma.  This is our first time ordering Ylang Ylang and we are looking forward to using it!

What did I get FREE with the June Essential Rewards promotion?

Citrus Fresh – It is a blend made with Orange, Tangerine, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Lemon and Spearmint.  It is commonly used as a powerful antioxidant that supports the immune system and the body’s overall health.  It can also be used to promote relaxation, peace, joy and creativity.  This is a new one for my family.

Lemon – It is a single oil commonly used for it’s antioxidant properties.

Purification – It is a blend made with Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaleuca, Lavandin and Myrtle.  It is commonly used to help purify and cleanse skin.  It also can be used to help clean the air and dispel odors.  We think Purification is a necessity for any home!  It’s great added to our 100% NATURAL air freshener and to a mixture for cleaning our tile floors.

What did I choose to get FREE with my Essential Rewards points?

Clove – It is a single oil commonly used for supporting a healthy immune system.

Lavender Lip Balm (not pictured) – Yes, Young Living not only has essential oils, but they make products with their oils for purchase.  This lip balm is made with Lavender essential oil, Almond, Coconut, Jojoba, Rosehip, Vitamin E and Wolfberry oil.  I was so excited to try this after I read a testimonial from a fellow Young Living Distributor.  I have a sensitivity to most lip balms and chapsticks, but this 100% NATURAL alternative is WONDERFUL!  My lips have never felt so smooth and the aroma is a plus too!

Purification – See above

 

Are you interested in Essential Rewards to receive FREE product and to participate in monthly promotions?

Please check out my Order Oils and Essential Rewards page.  Remember ER is an OPTIONAL program and you can enroll at ANY time.  You can decide now or a year from now, it does not matter.  If you are planning on making essential oils a part of your everyday life then ER is for you!  I love receiving my monthly order, it always feels like Christmas morning!  What I love even more is receiving FREE product!  Who doesn’t love FREE stuff?!

Are you new to essential oils and feeling overwhelmed?

Please don’t feel overwhelmed.  It is a lot of information, but easy to understand once you get started.  I am still learning more and more everyday.  I get overwhelmed easily and when I started using oils, I was so unsure with everything.  I am so happy I was able to start with the Premium Starter Kit, because it literally has everything you need to get started on your oil journey.  It includes the 10 everyday oils, Stress-Away oil, a Home Diffuser, a variety of samples and I will also send a FREE gift as my thank you for enrolling with me!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I’d be happy to assist you!

Thank you!

Amy
