My January Essential Rewards!

Check out what arrived on our doorstep this month for our Young Living Essential Rewards order!  Click on Essential Rewards (ER) to learn about Young Living’s optional autoship program.

What is Bergamot?

Bergamot is used for skin support, relaxation, uplifting spirits and building confidence.*

How will my family use Bergamot?

We love trying and experimenting with essential oils for everyday stress and to help with relaxation.  This is a new oil we are adding to our collection.  It’s always fun to change things up!  Currently, for everyday stress we use Stress-Away, Joy, Peace & Calming, Lavender and Tranquil.  We have heard so many great testimonials about using Bergamot applied to the temples and forehead.

Secondly, did you know some people consider this beard season?  Haha!  Well, living in the midwest, my husband is still sporting his facial hair.  He loves trying out different razors, clippers, shaving creams/gels, etc. (By the way, this is something I know nothing about).  We found a great oil combination for “beard-softening,” which he is looking forward to trying and secretly, I am looking forward to him trying too. Check out the recipe below –

Beard-Softening Oil Recipe
In a 2 oz. glass bottle, add the following:
10 Drops of Bergamot Essential Oil
5 Drops of Patchouli Essential Oil
3 Drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil
Top off with Young Living’s V-6 Oil Complex

What is White Angelica?

White Angelica is an essential oil blend made with Bergamot, Geranium, Myrrh, Sandalwood, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Spruce, Hyssop, Melissa and Rose essential oils with a base of almond oil.  It is primarily used for emotional support to calm and settle occasional nervousness or stress.*  It can be used aromatically or topically.  It works great applied to the top of the shoulders, on the spine, crown of head, wrists, behind the ears and the back of the neck.

How will my family use White Angelica?

Did you notice Bergamot is used in the blend as well?  White Angelica is another oil we are excited to try for occasional everyday stress – there are lots of options for this!* I’m looking forward to using it in my new diffuser necklace (blog post coming soon)!

As soon as I opened White Angelica, I knew it was going to be my new “perfume.” The aroma is soft and beautiful.  I normally call Joy essential oil my “perfume,” but this one will definitely be my new favorite!  Click on, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils,” to see how I start everyday with Stress-Away and Joy.  I love that I have eliminated store-bought perfumes from my home and now use 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.  Not only are they all-natural, but they can be very beneficial for your health and wellness.*

What is DiGize?

DiGize is an essential oil blend made with Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise and Patchouli essential oils.  It is used to support a healthy digestive system.*  It is recommended to use a vegetable capsule and dilute 1 drop with 4 drops of an oil carrier (such as, Young Living’s V-6 Oil Complex).  One drop can also be added to 4 oz. of goat’s or rice milk.  Check out the supplement facts below.

How will my family use DiGize?

DiGize is our favorite oil to use for our digestive system!  We carry this one with us at all times.  A fellow Young Living Member recommended it for our young son and it has worked great for him!  My husband also takes DiGize in a vegetable capsule or in a cup of milk as often as needed.  He has had wonderful success with it.

What is Peace & Calming?

Peace & Calming is an essential oil blend made with Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy essential oils.  The name itself describes this oil.  It is the ultimate oil to help bring peace and calm to the mind and body.*  It settles tensions, eases nervousness, uplifts spirits and promotes relaxation and sleep.*

How will my family use Peace & Calming?

We love to use Peace & Calming in our home diffuser.  All you need is approximately 4-5 drops with water in the diffuser.  You can always adjust the number of drops you prefer.

We use Peace & Calming everyday in our household.  We have been applying this oil daily to our daughter’s feet before bedtime.  It is a very gentle oil.  If you have an AromaGlide Roller Fitment (roller-ball) this is the perfect bottle of oil to add it to.  It makes it much easier and convenient to apply.

We sometimes add a few drops of Peace & Calming to a 1/2 cup of Epsom salt and let it run under warm bath water.  It is great for relaxation and helps the mind unwind before bedtime.*

If we are feeling overtired, irritable or just normal everyday stress, Peace & Calming can be added to the Vita-Flex points of the feet.*

Another way we like to use this oil is massaged onto the backs of our dogs’ ears or on their paws.  We have 2 Yorkshire Terriers and they tend to get a little rambunctious from time to time.  Peace & Calming does the trick!  We even notice a difference when it is just diffused.

What is Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash? 

Thieves Mouthwash contains essentials oils to support healthy gums and teeth.*  After brushing your teeth, rinse your mouth with one tablespoon or capful of Thieves Mouthwash for 30-60 seconds or as needed.  Best part?  It is all natural and safe and made with the best combination of oils to support a healthy immune system!*  Thieves essential oil blend is included in the Premium Starter Kit.  If we had to choose one oil, Thieves would be it and most people agree.  If you love Thieves oil, you will love this mouthwash.  Check out my recent blog post, “Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash.”

How will my family use Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash?

This is only our second bottle of Thieves Mouthwash.  My husband and I both use it daily.  To be honest, if you have sensitive tastebuds, it’s definitely something you have to get used to.  My husband fills the cap with straight mouthwash, I on the other hand, do half mouthwash and half water.  It seems to work great for both of us.  I love knowing we aren’t putting harmful chemicals or ingredients in our bodies either.

If you are interested in trying any of these oils mentioned or are ready to begin your oil journey, I would love to help you.  The best way to start is with the Premium Starter Kit as you can see on my order oils page.  If you have questions, feel free to contact me at any time and I will do my best to respond as soon as possible.

Thank you!

Amy

Check out what I ordered – 

Lavender

I feel like we need to start adding Lavender to every monthly order!  We use it DAILY for so many different things.  The main way we use it is in Epsom salt baths for relaxation and to ease everyday muscle aches.  It’s also a must-have for our on-the-go oil bag!

Peace & Calming

We added this one to our September order, because we were running low and we love it so much, we don’t want to run out!  We use it before bedtime massaged on the bottom of our kids feet and/or in our home diffuser.  We’ve definitely noticed a difference in how well they sleep at night!  Also, it is great for supporting the nervous system.  I use Peace & Calming diffused or massaged onto my wrists, neck, ears and Vita Flex points.

Tranquil Roll-On

This is a new one for my family and we are excited to try it out for occasional sleeplessness!

Tranquil comes in a 10 ml roll-on bottle making it convenient for use and portability.  It is a blend of Lavender, Cedarwood, Roman Chamomile and Coconut oils.  There is no need to dilute, just roll-on wrists, temples and back of the neck as needed.

Vetiver

This is another new one for my family that we have been patiently waiting to try.  It also promotes restful sleep and supports the nervous system.  It can be used topically or aromatically.

AromaGlide Roller Fitments

I was excited to FINALLY purchase these!  This makes using oils much easier and faster!  When you order these AromaGlide Roller Fitments from Young Living, there are 10 in the package with caps that fit 5 ml and 15 ml bottles.

Back to School with Young Living

Well, it’s that time of year again!  Summer is almost coming to a close and school is back in session!  Some of your kiddos might have already started.  I have a few friends whose kids went back in late July.  When I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, I saw first day of school pictures and couldn’t believe it!  July seems really early!  My son will start in September, so we have a little more time to plan and prepare for the new school year.  If you are a parent with a child in school already, it is not too late to prepare with your Young Living essential oils!

What is on your back to school supply list?

Of course we buy the typical necessities, such as a backpack, lunch bag/box, folder, pencils, crayons, glue, etc.  BUT, the most important absolute necessity we are planning for is having our Young Living essential oils stocked up and ready to go! Especially for those fall and winter months!  We are very excited and grateful to have Young Living for this new school year!

What is on our essential oil supply list? 

The oils we KNOW we will be using are in this post, but it is definitely not limited to just these.  The ones in this post are my TOP FAVORITE oils for the new school year AND as luck would have it, they are also included in the Premium Starter Kit!

Lavender

Lavender is considered the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils, because you can literally almost use it for everything!  Young Living states, “no home should be without it.”  We carry this oil on us at all times.  It is the most gentle of the essential oils and it can be used on just about everyone – including pets!

Here’s why Lavender should be included in your back to school supply list –

  • Supports a healhty immune system
  • Skin support
  • Calming (especially for those first day of school jitters)
  • Sleeplessness (great mixed with epsom salt in nighttime baths, diffused in the bedroom or even rubbed on your child’s pillow)

Joy

Joy is a newer addition to the Premium Starter Kit.  I personally am so thankful for this oil everyday.  I wear it as my perfume and we diffuse it regularly on those mornings or days where you need a great pick-me-up or mood uplifter.

Joy is an oil blend made with Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa and Rose 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Here is why we want Joy on our back to school list –

  • Relax the mind and body (diffused or massaged on vita-flex points)
  • Uplift spirits and moods (great for those mornings when the kids are crabby and when mom is running around crazy trying to get them ready and out the door on time)
  • Restlessness

Thieves

If you only get one oil this back to school season, THIEVES is the oil to buy!  It is a must-have for every home!  We use it daily, especially during the school season. Thieves was specifically designed for supporting a healthy immune system.  It is made with Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus radiata and Rosemary 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Since Thieves is so great, Young Living offers many products made with Thieves essential oil.  There is a Thieves household cleaner, spray, wipes, lozenges, toothpaste, mouthwash and a hand purifier (or sanitizer).  As you can see in the graphic, we include Thieves hand purifier in our back to school supplies.  You can keep one in your child’s backpack and/or lunchbox.

Here are more specific reasons why Thieves is a must-have for back to school –

  • Supports a healthy immune system
  • Maintains a healthy respiratory system

Don’t have Thieves?  Contact me to see how you can get it NOW or go to my order oils page for more information.  We already have our supply stocked!

Peace & Calming

Oh, what doesn’t my family LOVE about this oil?  You can read more about why we LOVE it on my blog post, Peace & Calming Essential Oil.

The name itself can pretty much sum up what Peace & Calming can do.  It is an oil primarily used for relaxation.  It is a blend of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.

These are the reasons why Peace & Calming must be included in our back to school supply –

  • Restlessness
  • Can be diffused or used topically to relieve tension (we like to massage it to the bottom of the kids feet)

So, this is my family’s back to school supply list!  Like I said, these are the must-haves for us, but it is not limited to just these.  We find a use for many of the Young Living essential oils, especially the ones included in the Premium Starter Kit!  The oils in the kit are called “everyday oils” for a reason.  Since these oils are popular for back to school, make sure you get yours as soon as possible!  I stocked ours up this summer!

As always, please feel free to contact me at anytime with questions.  I would be happy to help!

Blessings to the new school year!
