Welcome! I’m so glad you decided to learn more about essential oils!

Looking for more energy, better mood, less feelings of overwhelm, sleep improvement, a healthier life, seasonal relief, balancing body systems, and toxic free solutions? Then essential oils may be the answer to all of these needs!

Let’s dive in!

I wasn’t a skeptic when it came to oils. Many say they were, but that wasn’t the case for me. I was someone who knew the concept of oils had amazing potential, but it took me some time to really turn to them as I have now. I’m a knowledge hoarder, so taking my time to learn more, research, and ask trusted people for their perspective – was essential.

I’ve been on a journey to live a healthier, more natural life, for some time now. It’s a process, not something that happens overnight. I want this to stick-so I started a few years ago and my plan is to turn our household into a totally natural and healthier-for-us environment.

After a few years of switching up products in my home to healthier-for-us options, I was ready to take the plunge and learn as much about oils as I could.

I heard so many great things about using oils: more energy, better mood, less feelings of overwhelm, sleep improvement, a healthier life, seasonal relief, balancing body systems, and toxic free solutions. I wanted in on all of these things and oils proved to be the rout to go to help me continue improving in all these areas, in a way that was natural.

There are so many oil companies around, so choosing which one I would use for my family wasn’t an easy choice.

Why Young Living

I had tried other oils from other companies before, and didn’t like them. They didn’t deliver on what they claimed. And after doing some research, I learned that oil brand matters because not all companies create their oils the same. Sometimes fillers are added and other times they source their oils from questionable manufactures. The questionable part comes into play as far as growing their resources in regions where these don’t naturally thrive in.

For example, growing a palm tree in the middle of your mid-west suburbia back yard will create a very different palm tree than one that grew in it’s natural, tropical environment. Sure, both may be called the same – but they are very different in their genetic composition.

So, sourcing matters. Validity in sourcing matters. With Young Living, they have farms all over the globe which is why they offer so many great varieties of the best oils on the market. You can even visit their farms!

At first, I didn’t realize I could build my Young Living oil stash without becoming a seller. But then, a friend told me that signing up to get wholesale benefits does not equal having to become a seller.

At that point I was like – wait, so why wouldn’t I do this? So, I ordered my starter kit (it’s how you sign up or get your “in” to the wholesale status) and started using my oils.

How oils work

First, what are oils? They are concentrated plant extracts that retain the essence of the plant they were sourced from.

Essential oils are used in three ways: through aroma, through topical application, or through consuming them internally.

Aromatic use means you are basically exposing yourself to breathing in the aroma of the oil. When inhaled, the aromas can stimulate areas of your limbic system – which plays a role in emotions, behaviors, sense of smell, and long term memory. (1)

This is why sometimes you catch a whiff of something and you are suddenly reminded of a moment that happened decades ago (2, 3). The limbic system also plays a role in affecting some other things such as breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, physiological functions.

  • You can do this by adding a few drops to your hands and then just breathing that in by cupping your hands around your mouth and nose as you inhale.
  • You can also add a few drops to your diffuser and fill a room with the beautiful scents you added.

My first love was blending Lavender and Peppermint. I adore the combination of these two in my diffuser. Our brains react to smells in ways we don’t always recognize until afterwards. That’s why it’s important to choose your oils well- you don’t want to expose yourself to junk. Instead, you want to expose yourself to the best quality you can. That’s what you’ll get with Young Living Oils.

Topical use, probably the most common way to use oils, is when you apply the oil to your skin. When applied to your skin, you are allowing your skin to absorb the properties of that oil. For example, if you are outside and suddenly get a bump and are itching it like crazy. Apply some Lavender and the properties found in the oil will absorb into your skin, causing a soothing sensation and will likely eliminate the itch and reduce the bump. Though applying topically, you also still reap the benefits of aromatic use.

Depending on your goal with the oil in use, you apply it where needed.

  • Some oils work best for you when applied to your temples, neck, behind your ears, etc. Others work best when applied to your forearms.
  • And others, that may help improve the appearance of your skin, such as Frankincense or Tea Tree, work best when you apply it all over your face.
  • Some oils are pretty potent, so using a carrier oil helps adjust the potency. And this varies person to person. For example, some of my family members can use Thieves straight on our skin, but others in our family need to dilute it in a carrier oil. It’s a hot oil, so different people react in different ways.

Internal use of oils is the third way that oils are used. This is where it gets super important to be sure you are using top grade oils. Thankfully, if you’re using Young Living you’ll be set in this area.

  • Less is more with internal use. You can always try an extra drop the next time you use an oil internally, so you can gauge how you reacted the first time. I say less is more because since this is something you’ve put inside of your body, it’s harder to dilute it once it’s in you.
  • With Young Living, the oils that are labeled Vitality are meant for internal use.
  • You can use their Vitality oils topically or aromatically too of course, but these are the labels you’ll want on the oils you use internally. I love this about them, it makes it super easy to know what can be ingested and what can not.
  • Usually, people add a few drops to their morning tea. I like to add a drop or two of Thieves to my tea when I’m fighting seasonal things or if I’m a bit under the weather. Lemon makes for a great tasting tea too!

So, what does Young Living offer? It’s not just oils! Here’s items you can find in their product lines:

  • Oils (even blends that are tailored for specific needs such as Stress Away)

I started by signing up as a wholesale member and selected their Premium Starter Kit with the Desert Mist diffuser.

READY TO BENEFIT FROM WHOLESALE PRICES?

One of the things that held me back from signing up for as a wholesale member was because I thought it meant I had to do something each month (like get someone to buy something from me), in order to keep that status.

But guess what? You don’t! There is only ONE requirement: Sign up by ordering one of the starter kits I’ve shared above. You can find them all through this sign up link.

WHY do this? SAVINGS & FREE STUFF!

If you are wanting to start adding oils to your daily routine, you not only SAVE money (24%) by just simply signing up as a wholesale member vs shopping retail pricing, but you also earn points each month with your order if you’re on Essential Rewards.

Points are basically Young Living credit to use towards their products. They add up, fast!

What’s the Essential Rewards Program? Essential rewards (ER for short) is like signing up for a subscription service. You get a percentage of your order back as points, each month. You also get freebies every month. The longer you’re on this program the more points you earn back each month.

BUT – you do NOT have to be on this program in order to reap the rewards of wholesale pricing! I think it took me a couple of months to sign up for ER.

I wanted to get a good feel of the oils that I got in my Starter Kit and test out some other ones I was really interested in like Progessence Plus Serum (specifically formulated for women to help support our unique female systems).

Another one I wanted to try was R.C. Essential Oil Blend due to hearing it was a great oil to help breathe better. Interestingly, I found that Raven Essential Oil Blend worked best for me in this area and it’s what I use now. And, Raven Essential Oil Blend was in my starter kit!

The best advice I can offer is to find five oils in your starter kit that you love, and one more that’s not in the kit. Learn a lot about them and their uses. Become comfortable using them. Once you do, and you will, you’ll be ready and confident to keep exploring more oils!

OILS WE USE FREQUENTLY IN OUR HOME

  • Prgessence Plus Serum
  • Bergamot
  • Thieves
  • Raven
  • Stress Away
  • Lemongrass
  • Tea Tree
  • Oregano
  • Copaiba
  • PanAway

Ready to sign up and become a wholesale member? Just click here or on the link below and follow these steps if you need guidance:

  1. Select Member (this is how you become a wholesale member)
  2. Select your country and language.
  3. Enter this number, 16332291, in the “My Sponsor ID” and “Enroller ID” box. It should populate for you though.
  4. Choose your starter kit!
  5. STEP 2 is below this. Select yes or no to sign up for ER
    • Select “yes” if you’d like to enroll in Essential Rewards (ER)
      • If you select yes to enroll in ER:
        • you’ll see another box to have this order count as your FIRST ER order! WOOT! Select yes.
        • Now, in STEP 3, you’ll choose WHAT your monthly order will be starting NEXT month. So it doesn’t mean you’re getting these additional things THIS month. This month your Starter Kit is your ER order. So you’re all squared away with that selection.
        • I’d suggest selecting one of the pre-defined options there vs customizing, unless you already know what you’ll want next month! This way you SECURE the ER process. You can ALWAYS change WHAT comes in your ER order up to 24hrs before it’s set to ship. Shipping is usually the same day every month. So if you do this on the 15th this month, expect your ER order next month to ship on the same day.
        • Click next
      • Select “no” if you do not want to sign up for ER. You can sign up for ER at ANY time. The perk of signing up now is to start having the monthly credit towards being an ER member. I did NOT sign up for ER at first. I waited until I felt a bit more familiar with my oils
  6. Enter your information and place your order!

You can also contact me via my contact form OR shoot me an email at [email protected] with any questions!
