Back to School Essentials with Young Living

One of the best things you can do before the start of the new school year is to invest in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit.  I wish my family had essential oils when my kids were babies, but I am SO glad that we have them when they begin school.  Besides the typical back to school essentials, don’t forget your Young Living Essential Oils!

Why the Premium Starter Kit?

The Premium Starter Kit includes 11 essential oils.  10 of these oils are considered “Everyday Oils” because of their versatility for daily use.  They are some of the most popular and best-selling oils.  They are the oils my family uses everyday.  Check out my order oils page for more information on the Premium Starter Kit.

*Always read your bottle labels, check out Young Living’s Web site for more information or contact member services for specific instructions.  If you are pregnant, nursing or under a Doctor’s care, speak with a Doctor first.  For children, make sure they are of appropriate age and are supervised by an adult when using these products.  Always remember for children – DILUTE, DILUTE, DILUTE.  

STRESS AWAY 

Oh, how I love Stress Away!  It is the first product to contain the unique combination of Lime and Vanilla pure therapeutic-grade essential oils.*  It also includes Copaiba and Lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium.*  It was created to combat normal everyday stress that may creep up into daily life.*  Click on My Morning Routine with Essential Oils to see one way I use Stress-Away daily.

My October Essential Rewards!

I have been so excited to share what I received in my October Essential Rewards (ER) order!  Besides ordering my normal amount, I used some of my accrued ER points too!

Are you wondering what I am talking about?  Click on Essential Rewards for more information.  You can also find out more on my monthly order blog posts.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  ER is a fantastic OPTIONAL opportunity to SAVE and receive FREEBIES!  You do not want to miss out!

So, what did I order for October?

Lemon

Did you know it takes 75 Lemons to make ONE 15 ml bottle of Young Living Lemon essential oil?!  I think that is absolutely incredible!  There are no cutting corners with Young Living!  They make sure customers are receiving 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils!  Click on Seed to Seal to learn more about their process.

Lemon is a strong antioxidant with a purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting.  It can support the nervous and sympathetic nervous systems.*  Also, it may be beneficial for the skin.  It’s great added to your beverage or as a flavor enhancer for many different dishes.

Stress Away

Stress Away is an oil blend made with Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea and Lavender essential oils.  I’ve always considered it the great BONUS to the Premium Starter Kit.  Besides receiving “10 Everyday Oils,” you receive Stress Away with a roller for more convenient use.  As of November 17, 2014, Stress Away will be an “Everyday Oil,” and you will receive Citrus Fresh as the BONUS oil in the Premium Starter Kit.  I love this idea, because I already consider Stress Away an “Everyday Oil!”  The name alone hints as to what this oil can do for you!

Stress Away is great for combating normal everyday stress.  It can help induce relaxation and reduce occasional nervous tension.*  I apply Stress Away along with Joy essential oil every morning!  I also carry it with me wherever I go!  Click on my blog post, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils,” to learn more.

ImmuPower

ImmuPower is a new essential oil for my family.  I wanted to order it last month, but it was out-of-stock.  I ordered it with my ER points as soon as I noticed it was back in stock.   Since I used my points, ImmuPower was FREE!  I know it’s a popular one for this time of year!  I hear so many wonderful things about it, we are looking forward to trying it out.

ImmuPower is an essential oil blend made with Hyssop, Mountain Savory, Cistus, Ravensara, Frankincense, Oregano, Clove, Cumin and Idaho Tansy.  You can see by those ingredients that this oil has a lot of “power” in it!  It is a wonderful blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils that create a fragrant and protective haven while increasing positive energy.

Joy

As you saw if you clicked on my blog post, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils,” I use Joy along with Stress Away every morning!  I like to use it topically and aromatically in my home diffuser.

Joy is an essential oil blend made with Bergamot, Ylang ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa and Rose essential oils.  I know many people have switched out their normal perfumes for Joy oil.  It has a great fragrance which can be uplifting and energizing.  It also can inspire romance and togetherness.

Cinnamint Lip Balm

I have been using the Young Living Lavender Lip Balm for awhile now and I LOVE it, but wanted to try out the Cinnamint as well.  Well, my oldest child now claims it as his own.  I guess I need to order another one for myself!  Haha!  I ordered this Lip Balm along with the ImmuPower essential oil using my ER points!  Another FREE product!

Cinnamint Lip Balm contains essential oils, wolfberry seed oil and antioxidant Vitamin A, C and E.  It is great for quenching dry, parched lips.  It can also protect your lips from climate changes.

Lavender Lip Balm

Well, since I LOVE the Lavender Lip Balm so much, I decided I should purchase another one, just in case I ran out or misplaced one (which happens too often!)  The whole family has been using this one!

The Lip Balm contains Lavender essential oil, Jojoba oil and Vitamin E.  It is great for repairing and moisturizing lips.

USB Orb Diffuser

Last, but definitely not least is the USB Orb Diffuser!  I am so excited about this little thing!  I have been wanting this since I started using Young Living.  How cool is it to take a mini portable diffuser with you on-the-go in the car?!  It is perfect for road trips or just for everyday out and about use!  We commute everyday to school and I am especially excited to diffuse some Joy or Peace & Calming essential oil on the way!  This is also a great diffuser to pack for vacations!  It’s small and compact, which makes it very portable and convenient.  It lasts up to 4.5 hours too!   My husband may be ordering his own in the very near future to plug right into his computer at his office.  I will probably have a separate blog post about this in the near future.

Are you interested in learning more about Young Living Essential Oils and don’t know where to start?  The Premium Starter Kit is the way to go!  If you have any questions, please contact me.  I would love to hear from you.  Also, check out my order oils page for more information or click the graphic below.

My Morning Routine with Essential Oils

I know it’s hard sometimes rolling out of bed fresh-faced, with a good attitude and without a running list in your head of things to do for the day.  Trust me, I know.  It’s especially difficult when you have little ones who like to wake you up before the sun rises.  I know it’s not easy to get up for work before the sun either.  I’ve also been there.  So, how do I start my day?  With my morning routine of a whole lot of prayer and of course, essential oils!  Check out the graphic on how I use Young Living’s Joy and Stress Away essential oils daily.

I was so excited to receive my Premium Starter Kit, because Joy and Stress Away oil blends were included!  If you want to know how to get your Premium Starter Kit, check out my Order Oils page.  As a side note, you can always order oils individually at full retail prices, but when you buy the kit you are considered a, “wholesale member.”  Any order placed after the kit will also be at wholesale cost with reduced shipping rates.  That’s why the kit is so great and why I encourage it.

What is Joy Essential Oil?

It is an essential oil blend with Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa and Rose oils. The blend helps to promote energy, togetherness, uplift spirits and moods and it is also worn as a perfume for many.  It can be used topically or aromatically.  Young Living states, when used topically, stay out of direct sunlight for at least 24 hours, because citrus oils attract the sun.

What is Stress Away Essential Oil?

It is an essential oil blend with Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea and Lavender oils.  The blend as the name implies provides support for everyday stress and tensions.  Many people like to use Joy as a perfume, but Stress Away is my perfume of choice.  I’ve even had people ask me what I am wearing!  They look shocked when I tell them it’s an essential oil and it’s called Stress-Away!  Also, it’s an ALL-NATURAL, CHEMICAL-FREE perfume too!  Besides using it topically, it can be used as dietary supplement and aromatically.  Again, because of the citrus oil, it’s best to avoid direct sunlight.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  I will get back to you as soon as possible!  I can’t wait to help you on your oil journey to healthy living the natural way!
