Young Living Essential Oils

I was introduced to Young Living essential oils last fall.  I will admit it took a lot of convincing from a friend who had started to see the benefits for me to try them.  I finally purchased a starter kit and wanted to share how we use the oils:

Replacing Medicine with Young Living Essential Oils


ImmunityThieves is a unique blend said to help with immunity.  I place this on the bottom of my children’s feet and diffuse in my home diffuser any time any of us are feeling sick, if we’re around anyone who has been sick, or going into germ filled places during cold & flu season.

Allergies – I get terrible spring allergies.  I diffuse lemon, lavender, and peppermint each morning while I’m getting ready to help.  It has been recommended for me to try an allergy bomb which is this trio in a vegetable capsule and taken orally.  Will be sure to try it next Spring instead of Claritin!

Headaches – I suffer from chronic tension headaches and popped multiple Ibuprofen a day for years.  I get so much relief from peppermint oil that I have not used Ibuprofen in months.

Trouble Sleeping – I diffuse lavender or Peace & Calming in our home diffuser in the evenings to help calm everyone down and get us nice and sleepy.

Stress & Anxiety – I use Peace & Calming and Stress Away when I’m feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or when my kids are just plain driving me crazy.

Sore MusclesPanaway works wonders when I’ve been working hard at the gym and have sore muscles.

Snoring – My husband snores and placing Valor on his big toe helps us both get some sleep throughout the night.  Before using Valor (and lavender) our Fitbits were stating we were restless between 10-19 times per night.  Now, it’s more like 3-5.

Molluscum Contagiosum – Hudson caught a skin virus called molloscum contagiosum last summer.  It started as small bumps under his arm and spread down his arms and down his side.  After visiting our Pediatrician and him telling us that they don’t do anything for them I started researching how I could use oils.  After just a week of using Purification they were starting to disappear.  Within 3 weeks they were completely gone.

There is an oil for just about every ailment.  I was given the Essential Oils Pocket Reference which has helped so much in figuring out which oils might be best for whatever situation that we’re dealing with and how to apply them.  I am also a part of two different Facebook groups which offer so many great recipes, suggestions, and are so helpful when I have questions.

If you’re considering trying oils but you’re not sure where to begin I highly recommend the premium starter kit.  It’s a $249.50 value but you will get it for $150 which is such a steal .  It includes 10 everyday oils which are:  Frankincense, Joy, Lavender, Lemon, Panaway, Peace & Calming, Peppermint, Purification, Thieves, Valor, and Stress Away PLUS a home diffuser (which is normally $95).

Purchasing the kit also makes you a “member” which gives you 24% off of any reorders/future purchases.  Think of it like a Sam’s Club membership…becoming a member does not mean you have to sell any product.  You may simply just use the oils yourself.  The first 5 kit sales made through July 31, 2014 will receive a helpful magnet that describes how to use the kit oils.

Here’s how you sign up:

Step 1:

Step 2: Make sure “Wholesale Member” is selected instead of “Retail Customer.” This way you get access to the kit and the 24% discount you get afterwards.

Step 3: Fill out all the information. It will ask you for your ss# but this is only for legal purposes so that you have the ability to sign others up for kits too (YL is a referral based business). If you never sign anyone up, your ss # will never be used.

Step 4: Make sure you write down your pin, user name and password when you choose it because you’ll need that in the future to log into your account.

Step 5: Select the “PREMIUM START LIVING KIT”.  This is the one with the everyday oils kit and the diffuser.

Step 6: Click “Agree” and “Next”

Step 7:  Add any additional products if you wish.

Step 8: Check out. You’re done!
