December Newsletter

You guys. It’s December!! And December = the end of 2020! Can I get a hallelujah?! This year has certainly been a whole new experience for us all- full of hard, heartbreaking and crazy times. But as I look back I also remember the really sweet moments that we would have missed if we hadn’t have been forced to slow down and be home. As we close out this year (and I don’t think anyone is too sad to see it go), I am choosing to focus on the positives and look forward to what’s ahead, believing there will be good (even when it’s hard)!


So here’s to holding your loved ones extra close, enjoying the season and finding the joy in the last bits of 2020!

Hot Cocoa Body Butter DIY

Need a new DIY recipe to get you in the holiday spirit?! Check out this yummy Hot Cocoa Body Butter! Perfect for your own luxurious indulgence or for gifting!

You’ll Need:

1/4 cup (1.75 oz) coconut oil
1/4 cup (1.75 oz.) shea butter
1/4 cup (1.5 oz.) cocoa butter
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
Desired essential oils, optional but some great additions would be a drop of peppermint or a few drops of vanilla

1. Create a double boiler by placing a small glass bowl in a saucepan with water. Add coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter to the glass bowl.
2. Turn heat on medium and bring water to a gentle boil. Stir mixture frequently until shea butter and cocoa butter melts completely.
3. Remove from heat and stir in vitamin E oil and essential oils (if desired).
Place the bowl in the freezer for about 10-20 minutes. When the mixture starts to solidify and turns opaque, remove from the freezer.
4. Scrape the edges of the bowl and stir to incorporate. Then pour mixture into a mixing bowl for a high speed mixer.
5. Beat mixture at high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. If you overmix, it will become dry and crumbly. If this happens, simply warm the mixture slightly, and start again.
6. It should resemble whipped butter or cream when it’s done.
7. Store body butter in a glass jar.

Sometimes it can feel slightly greasy going on but it absorbs and doesn’t leave the skin oily… I promise 😉

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!
