New to essential oils?

Chances are you have heard of essential oils, but may be overwhelmed with HOW and WHAT to use them for. That was me at least! I let them sit in my cabinet for a year before finally putting them to regular use. They have slowly replaced many of our medicine cabinet essentials as well as all of our household cleaning products. We use essential oils in our family for emotional, mental, and physical support, and have seen the difference it has made! Here is a little more about how our family uses essential oils.

Why are essential oils effective?

This is something I didn’t really get when I first started using them so it was hard to find the motivation to actually use them consistently. Essential oils are the lifeblood of a plant that can be found in a plant’s flower, stem, leaves, bark, or fruit. What is fascinating is that they can reach every cell in your body within 20 minutes when topically applied! They can transport nutrients, are powerful antioxidants, help support cellular regeneration, digestive, nervous, and immune systems, and can even purify the air. These oils are highly concentrated and complex which deliver the human body the purest and best parts of the earth we live on. It does matter where you buy your oils from as many that are sold on amazon or wal-mart have been diluted.

There are a million and one ways to use oils, but finding simple routines that work for you and your family is what will help incorporate those healthier lifestyle changes. I was overwhelmed at first and the oils sat in my cabinet for a year until I started reading about ways that didn’t seem as intimidating to try. I hope this post proves to be the same for you!

My medicine cabinet is no longer overflowing with cough syrups and prescriptions from the doctors office. From changing our diet, cutting out sugar, focusing on gut health, and proactively taking probiotics…we actually haven’t had more than head colds in over a year! We made it through flu season (except for me who got knocked down like a bowling pin from lack of sleep), and have somehow even avoided the dreaded stomach flu. It is incredible what cutting out sugar, toxins, and chemicals from your home can do. It has made a big difference in our quality of life. I have replaced so many creams, ointments, and medicines with essential oils. A starter kit with 11 every day oils is a great place to start.


1) To purchase a starter kit, you can ORDER HERE.  (Make sure the number 13945266 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields.)

2) Sign up as a Member! This does not mean you have to sell oils, it just means you are getting a starter kit & will therefore get 24% off retail prices. The starter kit includes 11 essential oils and your diffuser including some of my favorites such as Thieves, Lavender, Peppermint, and Frankincense.

3) Recommended: Essential Rewards monthly autoship – highly recommend this as a way to order those things you wish to have outside the kit and begin to cut toxins from your home with YL. I use this to order things like Thieves cleaner, detergent, toothpaste, extra oils, etc. I am not buying all of these products at the store anymore, so I set aside a budget per month for essential rewards.


When you sign up as a wholesale member, you have the option of joining our private wellness group on facebook, which is where you can learn everything you need to know about using your oils & connect with a really uplifting community. If you are interested in selling the oils and sharing about the company I would be happy to discuss options with you to help you earn income to help support their family!

Please email me: hello (at) with any questions you have!



What do we use oils for? For multiple purposes! Natural immune system support, healthy sleep patterns, energy, post-partum and pregnancy support, natural alternatives to cleaning products, natural remedies for cold care, ear aches, headaches, etc. We use it many many ways, and are thankful for the benefits it has brought our family. You can learn along the way, and there aren’t hard set rules, but part of joining our oils team is that you get access to really great resources & our private facebook community.

Why Young Living? YL has an unmatched Seed to Seal process to guarantee the purity & potency of every oil. Each batch of oils is rigorously tested in house for therapeutic viability & they are so confident in their products that you can actually visit the farms & participate in the harvest/distillation process.

How do we use oils? You can diffuse them (you get a diffuser in your starter kit) which is great for making your house smell good in addition to the oil benefits, helping your babies or kids relax at night for bed, getting rid of unwanted odors in the house & more. You can apply topically (some require a carrier oil like coconut oil, you’ll learn all about that later!), you can make rollerball combos, creams, bath salts, and sprays!

How will I learn how to use my kit? You’ll get plenty of reading material with your kit, but as mentioned above, you’ll get access to the facebook community full of helpful resources. For instance: how to use each oil in your kit, which oils to avoid around kids or while pregnant/nursing, and all of the dilution ratios for individual oils. We have classes, books, live facebook hangouts, & search functionality that will help you navigate through any questions you might have.

What should I get? A premium starter kit, which comes with 11 of the most commonly used oils + your diffuser (I recommend the Dew Drop), is the best value & provides you with everything you need to get started. You’ll get over $300 worth of product for only $160.

Do you have to order more oils monthly or sell them? Nope! Your kit can be a one time purchase, but along with it comes a wholesale membership, which just means that should you decide to purchase oils in the future, you would get a 24% discount! You will also get a personal referral link should you ever decide that you want to share them, but neither is required.
