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

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

My July Essential Rewards!

This month has been crazy!  I have been off the radar, because I am just trying to savor every moment with my kiddos before school starts again.  I cannot believe it’s right around the corner.  My July Essential Rewards order included oils to help start off the new school year on the right foot!  I’m sure my August Essential Rewards order will include even more for the upcoming school year!  This is the time to stock up!

Click on Essential Rewards to learn more about Young Living’s optional (but, great!) monthly auto-ship program.

Check out what I ordered – 

July ER '15

Thieves Essential Oil

By now you know, Thieves is the essential oil to have on hand at ALL times, especially during the school year.  It is Young Living’s own blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils.  It also contains the naturally derived constituents limonene, eugenol and eucalyptol.  This unique oil can help support a healthy immune system and help to maintain overall wellness.  It is used as a dietary supplement and makes for a great addition to some foods and beverages.

Valor II Essential Oil

Who has gotten their hands on Young Living’s newest additions – Valor II and Peace & Calming II?  I am so excited about these!  It’s nice to have a very comparable option when one is out-of-stock.  Valor and Peace & Calming have been favorites for many!  Since Young Living only wants to provide the BEST quality, there has been a limited supply do to unforeseen weather conditions affecting the harvest.  Young Living decided to formulate these two new blends which may provide the same benefits as their predecessors and work complimentary together.

Valor II is a blend of Ylang Ylang, Rosewood, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Matricaria, Idaho Blue Spruce, Frankincense, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia and Davana oils.  It also includes the naturally derived constituents linalol, alpha-pinene, camphene and limonene.  Valor II has a calming and uplifting aroma.  It can be diffused or applied topically.

GeneYus Essential Oil

Did you know, you can now purchase the essential oils from the KidScents Oil Collection individually?  I know this was great news for many!  This collection includes 6 oils specially formulated for children which may help common ups and downs of childhood.  GeneYus is an oil blend in the kit.  I purchased it for my young son for the new school year.  I am very excited to try it out.  It may help young minds focus and concentrate (especially great for those school projects).  I plan to apply it to his diffuser necklace in the morning before school.  I will keep you posted on how we like it!  😉

Check out the KidScents Oil Collection –

My April Essential Rewards!

My monthly Young Living Essential Oils order is here!  It was exciting to see the BIG box printed with the “Seed to Seal” logo on my doorstep.  What’s even better?  Most of this box was FREE!  Click on Essential Rewards to learn more about Young Living’s optional monthly autoship program.  Also, check out my post, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion,” to see what comes FREE with a qualifying order this month.

Check out my April Essential Rewards – FREE FOR APRIL '15

Cardamom

Cardamom essential oil is a new one I am adding to our collection.  It is known for protecting and supporting the stomach and digestive system.*  It also can alleviate occasional fatigue and nervousness.*

Hope

Hope is another new essential oil for my family.  I love the oils in this blend.  It has a base of Almond oil, Melissa, Myrrh, Juniper and Spruce.  These oils combined create feelings of strength, joy, positivity, grounding and most importantly, “hope.”

Lemon

We are stocking up on Lemon essential oil!  We use this in our, “DIY Spring Essential Oil Roll-On,” along with Lavender and Peppermint essential oils.

Patchouli

Patchouli can be found in some of our favorites, such as, Peace & Calming and DiGize essential oil blends and in the Animal Scents Ointment.

Young Living states, Patchouli is sometimes called, “the scent of the sixties,” because of its musky, earthy and exotic aroma.  Its aroma may not appeal to some, but the oil has many benefits many people do not know about.  One benefit is it can soothe dry skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.*  It is also known to support the digestive system and ease nausea.*  See how you can use Patchouli in a diffuser blend for sleep on my post, “8 BEST Diffuser Blends for Sleep!

Thyme

Thyme is one of the most powerful antioxidants known.*  It supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous and other body systems.*

Thieves Household Cleaner

I ordered the biggest bottle available this month!  We are still trying to rid our house of winter and we are freshening things up for spring and summer.  Thieves Household Cleaner is an ALL-PURPOSE cleaner that is ALL-NATURAL, SAFE, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE and VERY AFFORDABLE. To see how we use Thieves Household Cleaner, check out my post, “Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils!.”

Cinnamint and Lavender Lip Balms

I absolutely LOVE the Young Living Lip Balms.  I am not sure which one is my favorite, because they are all equally wonderful.  If you are looking for an ALL-NATURAL alternative for soothing chapped lips, I would definitely recommend these.*

Lavender

Lavender was a FREEBIE this month for the, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion.”  You can ALWAYS use a bottle of Lavender!  Some of our favorite uses for this versatile oil are in a bath with Epsom Salts for relaxation and for easing tense muscles, in the diffuser for sleep, to soothe skin and in our, “DIY Spring Essential Oil Roll-On.”*

Wintergreen

Wintergreen was another FREEBIE this month for the, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion.”  We have been wanting to try Wintergreen on its own for awhile now and this was a perfect opportunity.  Wintergreen is in PanAway, one of our favorite essential oil blends.  PanAway is in the Everyday Oil Collection in the Premium Starter Kit, because it is something you could literally use everyday.  It is the perfect oil for stressed muscles, joints and ligaments.*  When it is massaged on the location of need with a carrier oil, the soothing benefits of this oil are amazing.*  The Wintergreen combined with Peppermint essential oil are what make the cooling sensation.

Thieves Spray

A 3-pack of Thieves Spray was also a FREEBIE this month for, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion.”  These are great to take on-the-go, especially when traveling.  This spray contains pure grain alcohol, deionized water, Thieves essential oil blend, fractionated coconut oil and soy lecithin.  You can quickly clean just about everything with these little handy bottles!  They are perfect for shopping carts, toilet seats, door handles and more!

Peace & Calming and Valor

I purchased Peace & Calming and Valor this month with my accrued Essential Rewards points.  We were notified these oils were going to be out-of-stock temporarily, so I wanted to stock up!  These 2 oils are some of Young Living’s “top-selling” oils.  Due to weather conditions, the botanicals needed to make these essential oils were not up to Young Living’s high quality standard.  This is one great reason why I love Young Living.  They want to provide only the BEST, so we will wait patiently for a better harvest this year!  If you missed out on grabbing these before they went out-of-stock, there are other great alternatives!  An alternative for Peace & Calming is Gathering essential oil blend and alternatives for Valor are Magnify Your Purpose, Envision and Inspiration essential oil blends.

Copaiba

Copaiba I also added on to my Essential Rewards points order.  Copaiba is best known for supporting the body’s natural response to injury or irritation.*  It can also help support the digestive system.*

This sums up my April Essential Rewards order!  It was a BIG one this month!  If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about Young Living Essential Oils, send me a message by clicking on, contact me.

Thank you!

Amy

My February Essential Rewards!

Check out what I ordered for my February Young Living Essential Rewards!  What are Essential Rewards?  You’ve come to the right place to find out!  Click on Essential Rewards to learn more.  In short, it is Young Living’s OPTIONAL monthly auto-ship program where you earn FREE product!  If you see yourself ordering regularly, you won’t want to miss out on this!

Check out what I ordered – 

What is the Everyday Oil Collection?

The Everyday Oil Collection comes with the Premium Starter Kit.  This is a collection of oils that Young Living has put together that’s perfect for beginners and well-seasoned oil users.  What is so great about it?  It includes 10 Everyday Oils at a reduced cost that literally every person could use on a regular basis.  They are a great introduction to essential oils and are the favorites among most people.  The single oils included are Frankincense, Lemon, Lavender, Melaleuca Alternifolia and Peppermint.  The blended oils included are Joy, Purification, PanAway, Thieves and Stress Away.

This is my second set of the Everyday Oil Collection.  I needed to replenish a few of these oils, so it was better for me to just buy another set.  It is the best bang for your buck!  Also, Young Living recently changed a few of the oils in the set, so I wanted an updated version for essential oil home classes/parties as well.

Lavender and Peace & Calming Samples

I decided to order some sample packets for my essential oil classes too.  These are great to carry on you for personal use or to share with others while you are out.  I always keep a few on me just in case.  Each sample pack contains 10 individually wrapped samples.  I find that Lavender and Peace & Calming essential oils are great ones to share because Lavender is known by many and is a very versatile oil and Peace & Calming is a blend of essential oils created by Young Living which many people love immediately.

What is Peace & Calming Essential Oil?  

As I stated previously, this is Young Living’s own special blend of essential oils.  The blend contains Tangerine, Orange, Ylang ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy essential oils.  Peace & Calming does exactly what the name implies – provides a deep sense of peace while calming the mind and body.*  It is wonderful before bedtime, after a stressful day and to relax overactive children and even pets!*  It can be diffused or applied topically.  We LOVE Peace & Calming massaged onto the bottom of our feet and diffused before bedtime.

What is Cedarwood Essential Oil?

Cedarwood is a new oil for my family.  I was eager to try this oil, because I have heard so many amazing testimonies about it.

Cedarwood is a single essential oil with a warm and woodsy aroma.  It is known for grounding and calming the mind and body.*  Also, because of its purifying properties it can help support the skin.*  I am looking forward to making a blend in a glass roll-on bottle using Cedarwood, Lavender and Vetiver essential oils along with a carrier oil.  This trio is known to help grounding and focus.*

What is Thieves Essential Oil?

By now, if you are familiar with my blog posts, you know about Thieves essential oil.  It is the oil to have on hand at all times.  Thieves is another essential oil blend created specifically by Young Living and it has become a favorite for all!  It is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary essential oils.  It is best known for supporting a healthy immune system.*  We have been flying through our Thieves bottles all fall and winter long!  We are so grateful for this oil!

What is RC Essential Oil?

This is another favorite of ours to use with Thieves during the fall and winter months.  RC is a blend of Pine, Marjoram, Eucalyptus Radiata, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Lavender, Black Spruce and Peppermint essential oils.  It is a powerful blend which supports a healthy respiratory system.*  It feels great diluted and massaged to the throat and chest area.

What is Lime Essential Oil?

Lime is a new one for my family as well!  Believe it or not, Lime is known for supporting a healthy immune system too!*  It also provides antioxidant support, can help with weight management and supports healthy skin!*  I had no idea Lime could do so much!  I decided to purchase Lime to try it in homemade Guacamole for an essential oils class coming up.  I thought it would be perfect paired with Sangria made with essential oils.  I definitely will be blogging about these soon and will include recipes!

Not a Young Living Member or not enrolled in Essential Rewards?

Thieves Tea for Immune System Support

If you really want to provide fast and effective immune support, here is a recipe to try!*  This is probably not something to drink everyday, only on those days you want extra support for your immune system.* There are different variations to this recipe, but below you will see the most common one used. You can alter it as much as you want as long as Thieves and Lemon essential oils are included (this is where you get the best support).  Some like to add other essential oils, such as Peppermint.  Others even like to add this combination to their favorite herbal tea blend too.  The options are really endless!  Make it your own for the best taste!

Why Thieves and Lemon?

Thieves, as you will see in many of my posts, is the essential oil to have at all times – especially during the fall and winter months.  It is a special blend created by Young Living.  It is made with Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.  You can find Thieves in many of Young Living’s products.  It is a great safe and natural alternative for many store bought items.  Check out my new post, “Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils,” to see how we clean our house with Thieves!

Lemon is a great addition to the Thieves Tea not only for taste, but because Lemon contains D-Limonene a powerful antioxidant.*  Check out my post, “Young Living Lemon Essential Oil,” to learn more about this amazing oil!

Thieves and Lemon are both included in the Premium Starter Kit.  They are must-have oils that can be used everyday.  Check out my order oils page for more information.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time!

Thank you!

Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils!

Spring is less than 6 weeks away!  Do you believe it?!  I am ready!  I can’t wait to rid our home of all things winter – pack the warm clothes and snow boots away, clean all traces of snow, ice and salt from windows, floors, walls, furniture and most importantly, disinfect and freshen up from all the winter blah!  Spring cleaning will be so much easier, affordable and SAFER this year since we started using Young Living Essential Oils and more specifically, Thieves Household Cleaner!

What is Thieves Household Cleaner?

If you are looking to detoxify your home of chemical cleaners, Thieves Household Cleaner is for you!  What is so great about it?  It is an ALL-NATURAL, ALL-PURPOSE and very AFFORDABLE cleaner.  We literally use it for everything!   It is made with renewable plant and mineral sources, vegetable-based surfactants AND contains Thieves and Lemon essential oils.

Thieves Household cleaner comes in 2 sizes.  The largest size is 64 oz. and as a Wholesale Member, you would pay $85.25.  This sounds like a lot, but it is NOT and here is why – the 64 oz. bottle makes 128, 30 oz. bottles.  This means each 30 oz. bottle is .67 cents!  I don’t think there is a household cleaner on the market that cheap!  The smaller bottle is 14.4 fl oz. and as a Wholesale Member it is $22.00.  This makes 29, 30 oz. bottles at $1.32 each.  Talk about a steal!  Obviously, it’s a much larger investment to buy the 64 oz. bottle, so if you are new to Young Living, the 14.4 fl oz. bottle is a good place to start!

Check out some of the dilution ratios that Young Living recommends that we’ve used:

  • Light degreasing 60:1
  • Medium degreasing 30:1
  • Heavy degreasing 15:1
  • Floors 100:1
  • Walls 30:1
  • Upholstery, fabrics and carpet spotting 40:1
  • Carpet 100:1
  • Glass 320:1
  • Pots and pans 100:1
  • Hand cleaner 1:1

If you don’t own Thieves Household Cleaner you can use many essential oils for all of your cleaning needs!  Here are some of our favorites – Thieves, Lemon, Purification, Lavender and Melaleuca to just name a few.  All of these oils are included in the Premium Starter Kit.  See my order oils page for more information.

Cleaning Solution Recipes

Check out some of my family’s favorite recipes for cleaning our home.  All are made with Thieves Household cleaner and/or Young Living Essential Oils.  As with anything new, please be sure to spot test before cleaning your upholstery, fabric or carpet.

Window and Mirror Cleaner

For this cleaner, it is advised to use a 16 oz. glass spray bottle, because Lemon essential oil will be added and citrus oils can erode plastic.

My December Essential Rewards!

Merry Christmas to us!  Check out what was left for us near our front door this December.  Our Young Living monthly order!  Click on Essential Rewards (ER) to learn more!

What did we receive this month?

Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste

This is the first time we have ordered Thieves Toothpaste.  It is great if you are looking for an all-natural alternative.  It gently cleans, whitens your teeth and freshens your breath with the power of pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.*  The toothpaste contains Peppermint, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary essential oils.  It is perfect paired with the Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash!

Thieves Household Cleaner

This stuff is the best!  No more cleaners with toxins and chemicals – Thieves Household Cleaner is your all-in-one!  Also, it is in a 100% recyclable bottle as a nice bonus!

Thieves Essential Oil

We included Thieves in our December order to stock up for the upcoming winter!  If you could pick just one oil to have on hand at all times, I would suggest Thieves!  It is a blend specifically made to support a healthy immune system.  Young Living carries many products made with Thieves essential oil, such as, Thieves Toothpaste and Thieves Household Cleaner (both mentioned above), Thieves Spray, Wipes, Lozenges and Mouthwash. Click on Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash to read my blog post about this amazing product!

Lavender Essential Oil

We use Lavender for so many things.  I hear constantly that it is the, “Swiss Army Knife,” of essential oils or that, “no home should be without it,” which is totally the truth!  Most people are familiar with the lovely aroma of Lavender, but to experience 100% pure, therapeutic-grade Lavender essential oil is completely different!  It’s fresh and sweet aroma can be soothing and refreshing to the mind and body.*  It can assist the body in adapting to everyday stress.*  It is a great aid for relaxing, especially before bedtime.*  We can attest to that!  We love taking Lavender and Epsom Salt baths to help us unwind.  It can also help increase stamina and energy too!*  It is highly regarded for skin and beauty and is used frequently to sooth and cleanse the skin.*  Love, Love Lavender essential oil!

Valor Essential Oil

As I stated in, “My November Essential Rewards,” blog post, Valor is back in stock!  Of course, we had to order another bottle in December to replenish our personal supply.  Valor is a unique essential oil blend commonly used to encourage grounding and confidence.*

Deep Relief Roll-On

Deep Relief is an oil blend made up of Peppermint, Lemon, Idaho Balsam Fir, Copaiba, Clove, Wintergreen, Vetiver and Palo Santo essential oils.  I never leave home without it!  It is great for the occasional everyday aches.  The roll-on bottle makes it convenient to use, because you just apply it right on location and no dilution is required.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.  Click on Essential Rewards to learn more about Young Living’s auto-ship program.  Click on order oils to begin your oil journey or on the graphic below.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!  God Bless!
