Starter Kit Staples for Easy Breathing

When I got my oils, I had no idea I was basically investing in a whole new medicine cabinet that comes straight from God-given plants. I honestly just wanted my baby to be able to sleep through the night without waking up because his nose was filled with snot! #letsbereal

The past few days the weather keeps going up and down in temperature and our noses have started to notice. Not ONCE have I had to run to Walmart to buy meds. I already have all that I need in these tiny bottles! I use these in my diffuser and in a roller for me! For the littles I use thieves and lemon and a few drops of Raven in the diffuser and in a roller heavily diluted with a carrier oil.

+Thieves: The combination of cinnamon, clove, lemon, eucalyptus, and rosemary are like a tiny army marching throughout your body and scaring anything that doesn’t belong there. The little warriors cover each cell of your body in mere minutes, giving thorough coverage as your body works to hold its ground against any type of invader. The exciting part is the effectiveness against both bacterial and viral enemies which is unusual. They are simply helping your body to do what it does best so you are left stronger and better after your battle is won.

+Raven: A favorite at our house for respiratory support, I love this smell. It makes the best, soothing chest rub! It creates a cooling sensation when applied topically to the chest and throat. Supports healthy function of your lungs and of your sinuses. Raven contains a blend of these essential oils: Ravintsara, Eucalyptus radiate, peppermint, wintergreen and lemon.

Thanks to Bailey Garner for the wisdom!!

Spring Clean: Thieves For All The Things!!

When we say you can use Thieves Household Cleaner for all the things we mean ALL the things! You can use it just as is (1 capful in a spray bottle filled with water) or mix up one of these combos for some extra effectiveness!

+Glass and Mirror Cleaner:
Combine 1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner, 5 drops Citrus Fresh™ essential oil blend, 1 teaspoon white vinegar, and 3 cups water.

Combine 1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner and 1-2 cups water. For heavy cleaning, use half or quarter the amount of water. If necessary, use a cloth to apply Thieves Household Cleaner undiluted. After cleaning, wipe the area with a cloth dampened with water.
Add this to a glass spray bottle and use on:
Kitchen Sink – Deep Cleaner
Toilet Seats
Bathroom Sink
Floors and Tile

+Hardwood Floors
These are tricky right? When we rented a townhome, I was always terrified of ruining the hand-scraped hardwood floors. I never really knew what to use. But i’ll tell you, that addition of Olive oil in this recipe is genius. Olive oil is so great in nourishing hardwoods!
1 gallon hot water
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup Thieves cleaner
3-5 drops Orange EO or Pine EO
Add the above together in a bucket. Using a soft cleaning cloth, soak the cloth into the water, ring excess water, and wash a small 4×4 section of floor. Immediately wipe dry with a soft cloth and move to the next section of flooring.

Clean home + chemical-free easy breathing = BIG WIN!!

DIY Mermaid Hair Spritz

Even if spring break isn’t in the cards for you this year you can still get that dreamy, beachy hair right in your own home!
And bonus- all of these oils support healthy hair and scalp AND smell amazinggggg!

Whip up this Mermaid Hair spray and pretend you’re soaking up the sun at your favorite beach! Speaking of- what’s your favorite beach destination?? Why not do a little dreaming after a year of being home more than ever before!

10-15 drops lavender
10-15 drops cedarwood
10-15 drops rosemary
5 drops peppermint
2 oz witch hazel


Add oils and witch hazel to a 4 oz glass bottle. Top it off with water and a spray top.
Shake it up and spritz into damp hair from roots to ends!

You could also add a pinch of sea salt to give it that extra-authentic beach feel!

Essential Rewards

If you’re a budgeter, Essential Rewards is a great way to be able to plan ahead on EXACTLY how much you need and want to spend on dish soaps, hand soap, shampoos, bar soap, skin care, oils etc. Set it up in advance and you don’t have to think about it again! 

With ER, you can change up what you order each month OR you can determine how much money your family has in the budget for cleaning products/wellness/personal products/supplements. Then pick the items that you need every single month that fit within that budget, put that in your ER cart and leave it there and you don’t have to think about it again! Plus it helps to make sure you stay on track! Every month it will be shipped right to your front door without you having to do anything.

Each month you spend $50 or more on ANYTHING you want and then you get points, which is basically YL money, to use towards more YL products. So you can view it as getting products for free OR getting discounted products. 

For example, place a $100 PV Essential Rewards order in your first 3 months and earn $10 dollars back to your account to redeem for free products. The more you order, the more points you can redeem for free Young Living products.

The FIRST THREE months that you are an ER member, you earn 10% back on your ER orders. So if you place a 100PV order, you earn 10pv in points to buy free oils and products, which is like getting everything you buy at 10% off.

Months 4 THROUGH 24 you earn 20% back on your ER orders. So if you place a 100PV order, you will earn 20pv in points to buy free oils and products.That’s like spending $100 for $120 worth of products!

Months 25 AND ONWARD you earn 25% back on your ER orders. So if you place a 100pv order, you will earn 25pv in points to buy free oils and products. So spend $100 for $125 worth of products!

You can then turn around and use the extra points/YL money that you earn, right away. So I will plan out my ER and then usually plan what I will use my points on. We use Lavender in our diffusers around the house, nightly. Instead of having to order Lavender monthly, I get it free every month with points! 

Whether you budget or not, this is all so great to understand because right now we are in unprecedented times where so many of us are having to pay super close attention to what we are spending money on. It is important that we can communicate the benefits of ER and how it IS possible to get high quality products that are good for your family and still stay on a budget!
