My January “Stayin’ Healthy Box!”

How does my family support our health and wellness?  We enrolled in Young Living Essential Rewards (ER) program to have products delivered to our home every month.  We pick our date and change what we need on a month to month basis.  There are some items we replenish often, there are some new products we throw in there every now and then and sometimes we receive FREE items, because of a promotion or from our ER accrued points.  We started calling this monthly delivery, our “Stayin’ Healthy Box.” 😉

My January “Stayin’ Healthy Box” –

THAT’S A WHOLE LOT OF ORANGE!

Orange Essential Oil is my FREE gift to all new Wholesale Members who enroll with me and purchase the Premium Starter Kit.  Why Orange?  Well, one sniff of Orange and you will be in love!!!  Orange is my go-to when I don’t particularly like the smell of another oil.  I add a drop of orange and voila!  I think it makes a great addition to the Premium Starter Kit.  So, this month, I am stocking up for all my new members!

What are some other ways to use Orange?

  • In the diffuser for a great pick-me-up or energy boost
  • Having guests?  Put Orange in the diffuser with Lemon essential oil and you will have people telling you your house smells AMAZING!
  • Add a few drops to your wool dryer balls to freshen up the laundry
  • Add a drop or two to a carrier oil and massage on the temples or wrists to inspire creativity
  • Add a few drops to your Thieves Household Cleaner to make your home smell fresh and inviting without the chemical scent

V-6 VEGETABLE OIL COMPLEX

Have you been on the hunt for a perfect carrier oil?  I rarely use any other carrier oil besides V-6.  I personally love the consistency of it and I love that it massages into the skin without leaving any oily residue.  If you are using essential oils, you want and need a good carrier oil!

THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER

If you don’t know about Thieves Household Cleaner, it is time for you to get your hands on some!  It is a chemical-free, all-purpose, oil-infused cleaner.  We use this on EVERYTHING!  Check out my blog post – Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils to see how you can make this work for you!  When my little kids see mom cleaning and want to help, they get their own bottle of diluted Thieves to use!  I love that I can feel confident they are using something safe.

ART REFRESHING TONER

Honestly, when I became a member of Young Living, I wasn’t thinking I would use anything, but the essential oils.  My first few months, I researched and soaked in all I could about all the oils they had to offer.  I then realized I could make a complete lifestyle change with these products and everything was oil-infused!  I’ve heard many wonderful things about the Art Skin Care System and I figured I would give it try.  Well, I’m hooked and my skin loves me for it!  This month I needed to replenish my toner.  I use this every night before bed.  It is cooling and refreshing and makes my skin feel so clean!

SNIFFLEEASE

ALWAYS replenishing this one!  SniffleEase is specifically formulated for kids and LOVED by kids and parents too!  During the winter months, you NEED this one!  We attach a roll-on to the bottle and apply it directly to the sinus area, neck and vita-flex points.  SniffleEase and Thieves work great together!

CITRUS FRESH VITALITY

Young Living threw this one in with my order this month for FREE!  It was a gift for being an ER member.  I have not tried it yet, but I’m looking forward to adding a drop to my morning water or daily NingXia Red shot!

What is on your Young Living wish list?  What are you eager to try this month?

If you have questions about anything, feel free to contact me!  I would love to hear from you!

Blessings,

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
