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

Essential Oils make the PERFECT Father’s Day gift!

Fathers Day tie

It’s not too late to get the perfect Father’s Day gift!  If you are still on the fence as to what to get the special man in your life this Father’s Day, look no further!  Essential oils make the perfect gift for anyone!  You may be thinking….”Why would they want essential oils?” “There’s no way my husband or father would use essential oils?”  Well, I am first to tell you, they will and they will LOVE them!  When I first began my oil journey, my husband was definitely a skeptic.  I think it’s safe to say, he now uses them more than anyone in the house!  He even has his own personal bag he takes with him on a daily basis.  Check out some essential oil gift suggestions below along with some DIY oil gifts for the Father in your life.  This will be the year they will thank you for not getting them another tie, t-shirt, coffee mug or picture frame! 😉

Young Living’s Gift Suggestions 

(click on image to enlarge)

Father's Day

As you can see in the graphic above, Young Living offers some great suggestions for Father’s Day!  These include:  PanAway, Stress-Away, Brain Power, Idaho Blue Spruce, Idaho Balsam Fir and DIY options, which includes, Cedarwood and Vetiver (for a bath and shower gel) and Tea Tree and Eucalyptus Radiata (for a beard oil).  These are amazing suggestions and I know anyone could benefit from these oils.

Other Gift Suggestions

Shutran Essential Oil

As you may have seen in my post, “My June Essential Rewards,” I discussed how I purchased Shutran this month to give my husband for Father’s Day.  Shutran was introduced at the Young Living convention in 2014.  It is an oil blend specifically made for men and has since become a favorite!  This year it was perfected even more when Young Living decided to reformulate it.  It now contains Black Spruce and an increased amount of Idaho Blue Spruce by 45 percent, as well as increased amounts of Ylang Ylang and Lavender.

What is Shutran?

Surprisingly, Shutran is the new cologne for men!  The aroma is fantastic for both men and women alike.  This cologne you won’t have to worry about any harmful ingredients, because it is made with 100% pure essential oils.  The best part?  This cologne comes with the ability to support a healthy body!*  All of us at some point or another have experienced that “slump” in the middle of the day where a nap seems really desirable.  Shutran can come to the rescue!  This is one the men will be taking with them to work!  After just a few dabs directly to the wrists, it can increase alertness to the mind and body while boosting masculinity and confidence.*

Deep Relief Essential Oil

I added this one as a suggestion, because this is my husband’s personal favorite.  We each have our own bottle and it goes with us everywhere.  It is a very popular blend and in high demand!  Unfortunately, it is currently out-of-stock, but keep it in mind for that next Young Living order!

What is Deep Relief?   

It is a blend of Peppermint, Lemon, Balsam Canada, Clove, Balsam Copaiba, Coconut, Wintergreen, Vetiver and Dorado Azul oils.  It comes in a convenient 10 ml roll-on bottle ready for use.  I do have to add, Young Living recently updated their packaging for their roll-on blends and they are pretty impressive!  Beyond the packaging though, this oil is a must-have for anyone!  It is perfect rolled-on to parts of the body after exercise or any other activity.* It’s scent alone is invigorating and energizing.*  We like to apply it to our temples, neck and forehead for the best Deep Relief.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is great for Fathers and everyone else!  Some of my husband’s favorite uses for Lavender are in the bath with Epsom salts for relaxation and in the diffuser for a peaceful nights sleep.*  My Dad also uses it in the diffuser on a nightly basis and loves it so much, he asked why they can’t make a BIGGER diffuser for it to run all night!  Haha!  A bigger diffuser sounds nice, but isn’t necessary, because Young Living’s diffusers cover approximately 1000 square feet and a little oil goes a long way!  You only need a few drops to experience the benefits!*

What is Lavender?

Lavender essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering top.  For a Young Living 15 ml bottle of Lavender essential oil, it takes 27 square feet of Lavender plants!  Isn’t that incredible?!  I love how much care is taken for each bottle of essential oil.  This is one of the many reasons why I love Young Living so much.  Their process is detailed for us to understand and to experience firsthand, so we know we are receiving the best quality.  For more information on their process, click on Seed to Seal.

As I mentioned above, Lavender is wonderful added in the bath for relaxation and diffused for winding down before bedtime.*  It can also be applied topically to help with everyday stress and tension.*  Also, it helps to support a healthy respiratory system and healthy skin.*  It is the most gentle of the essential oils, which makes it useful for the whole family!

Mister Essential Oil

The name alone implies this oil was formulated with men in mind.  We have not tried this oil yet, but have heard it is a beneficial for most men thirty and over.  Mister is a blend of Sage, Fennel, Lavender, Myrtle, Peppermint and Blue Yarrow in a base of sesame oil.  It helps to soothe everyday stress and promote greater inner-body balance.*

Oola Essential Oils

The OolaGuys have partnered with Young Living to create essential oil blends for seven key areas in our lives where we need balance and growth to achieve richness and fulfillment.  These seven blends are called:  Fitness, Finance, Family, Field (career), Faith, Friends and Fun.  They can be purchased altogether in the “Infused 7,” kit or they can be bought individually.  For more information on this kit and to see why these oils would make a perfect gift, click on Infused 7.

Diy Oil Gifts

Since Father’s Day is already next week, maybe you have essential oils to work with and do a DIY gift for the man in your life this Father’s Day.  Below are some personal favorite recipes I would like to share.

Beard-Softening Oil

‘Tis the season for beards!  It was common to see beards more around winter time, but now they are stylish ALL year around, especially during hockey season!  I know my husband and Dad are sporting one right now!  There are many different recipes for a Beard-Softening Oil, but here is one to try below:

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

Sleepy-Time Blend

Let’s face it, being a parent, you come to LOVE sleep!  Sometimes after a long day of work, you hit the bed and cannot fall asleep!  I know my husband experiences this quite frequently.  Here is an essential oil blend for a peaceful nights rest that you may have seen in my post, “Reusing Essential Oil Bottles.”  Check it out:

In a 2 oz. glass bottle, add the following:
12 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil
12 Drops of Peace & Calming Essential Oil
12 Drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil
Top off with Young Living’s V-6 Oil Complex
Attach a roller fitment for easier use

I hope this information was helpful!  Remember, these are just suggestions, there are many more options!  Also, the recipes can be tweaked to your liking or you could create your own!  I would love to hear what recipes you have come up with!  Feel free to share them in the comments of this post.

Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash

We have been using Thieves Mouthwash since last fall and after some getting used to, we now LOVE it!  If you are looking for a natural/chemical-free mouthwash, Thieves is definitely one to get!  It contains a special blend of pure essential oils which help to support the teeth and gums.*  You can read more about it in my post – Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash.

NingXia Nitro

I have been hearing so many wonderful things about NingXia Nitro, so I thought now was the time to take the plunge and try it out!  I have not had one yet, but I am sure you will see a blog post about it in the near future.

NingXia Nitro comes in a box with 14 – 20 ml single-serve tubes inside.  Each tube contains pure essential oils along with natural ingredients to provide you with an energy boost or a “pick-me-up.”* I know being a mother of young ones, around midday, I am ready for a nap!  These will be great to have on hand when that exhaustion sets in!  Some other benefits of NingXia Nitro are:  increasing mental fitness, cognitive alertness, physical acuity and enhances athletic performance and endurance.*

Shutran Essential Oil

Since June is the month for Father’s Day, I decided to purchase Shutran essential oil as a gift!  This is a special blend specifically designed for men.  It contains Ocotea, Ylang Ylang, Hinoki, Coriander, Davana, Lavender, Cedarwood, Lemon and Northern Lights Black Spruce oils and exclusive to Young Living – Idaho Blue Spruce.  Because of its appealing aroma, many men use it as a cologne.  Who wouldn’t want a natural cologne without any harmful synthetic ingredients?!? Also, Shutran is beneficial for supporting a healthy mind and body.*  It also can help boost feelings of masculinity and confidence.* Young Living suggests adding topically 2-4 drops to the wrists twice daily or as needed.
