And speaking of diffusing….

New Years Resolution: Use You Diffuser More!

I will be the first to tell you, if I’m not proactive it’s easy to get lazy with the diffuser. It can feel like just one more thing to do in your busy day or crazy routine. BUTTTT I will also be the first to tell you that I am always so glad to have it running! Whether it’s an uplifting blend on a stressful day, a little extra chilllll at bedtime, a fresh scent to get the stink out of the kitchen or whatever your day calls for- do yourself a favor and set yourself up for success!

Here are a few of my tips for making sure your diffusers are pulling their weight:

Keep A Bottle Of Water Nearby For Easy Refills
I have a very basic but cute clear glass bottle from hobby lobby that I keep filled with water and setting next to my diffuser. It looks decorative and also makes filling the diffuser soooo much simpler. No more unplugging and carrying to the sink every time! Plus this one bottle lasts about 5 diffuser cycles before I have to refill it. No need to go out and buy a bottle either! Use what you have- a cute vase, a small pitcher, a mason jar, or even an empty Ningxia bottle!

Pre-Made Blends
Have a blend you keep coming back to?? Use an empty oil bottle to pre-blend it so that it’s ready to go and you don’t have to find the 3+ bottles you need every time you are craving that blend! Then when you want it, drop a few drops in your diffuser and you’re in scent heaven in no time flat!

Dropper Tops
Speaking of using those empty bottles… have you seen these cuuuute dropper tops you can pop on them?? Makes those special blends that much more aesthetically pleasing sitting next to your diffuser and glass bottle and they’re especially helpful for those thicker oils that can be hard to get out of the normal tops! http://etsy.me/3rzmsSE

Get Inspired
Sometimes the thing that gets me in a rut with diffusing is feeling stumped on which oils to diffuse. So often I just feel like I don’t have the brain power to devote to that (ya feel me??). I like to keep a running list in the notes on my phone of blends that I see others share or ones that I try and love. Then I can just pull it up and get going. There are also sooooo many blend ideas out there for every occasion you can imagine. Pinterest is a great place for a quick search but did you know that you can also search in our facebook group and find hundreds of blend ideas?? Just use the search feature in the group and type in “diffuse” orrr check out the unit devoted to diffusing!

Empower Your People To Start It On Their Own
And one last tip, if diffusing is part of your regular routine throughout the day (or you want it to be), empower your people to do it themselves so that the responsibility doesn’t fall entirely on you! Maybe you add Calm or Sleepyize to your Feather The Owl Diffuser for your kiddo’s bedtime routine- set up a little station using the tips above and teach them to do it themselves!
I think you’ll find that by making things simpler, you’ll see so much more usage, and so many more results- after all, consistency is everything!!

Goal Setting + Oily Support

Who’s got some fresh goals and dreams for the new year??

Here are some great oils to use to help you focus and settle down this season as you conquer those goals and head back to the classroom (virtual or otherwise) and do work- whatever that looks like right now!

  • Vetiver – this oil has a distinct earthy and grounding scent to it. Use this oil to help focus and stay calm during tense times! This one is a MUST in for your homework routine!
  • GeneYus – Similar in sesquiterpenes levels to Brain Power, it is formulated to help you focus and concentrate on your task at hand! Put a roller attachment on this one and roll it on before the school day begins, or even put it in your bag so that you can use it throughout the day!
  • Cedarwood – working with the brain to reset faulty patterns and create new, healthier ways to learn and function, you will find that sleep may just turn into something that rejuvenates you body and soul. GREAT for grounding, support in calming down- a wonder oil paired up with vetiver in “off to school” roller!
  • Lavender – Remember, it’s our sweet Grandmother oil! Gentle, soft, comforting, relaxing, and all about making us at home. This is the Swiss Army knife of oils, good for anything!
  • Bergamot – this is an incredible oil for emotional support, very emotionally grounding. This one is great for support when calming down and taking that time to get ready to focus!
  • Brain Power – helps to promote a sense of clarity and focus. Gives your brain the support it needs to do the work it needs to do!

Diffuse these oils! Use them topically! You’ll be glad for their extra support!

DIY Thieves Tub Scrub

Comin’ at ya with a little cleaning DIY to start the year fresh and clean!

This Thieves Tub Scrub will have your bathroom sparkling clean and smelling fresh without all of the chemicals!

Thieves Tub Scrub

1 cup baking soda
1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 cup thieves household cleaner
3 drops of your favorite citrus oil

Combine in an empty thieves dish soap bottle or any other squeeze bottle.

Squeeze onto the rough side of a sponge and scrub away! You could also use it in a spray bottle for your shower or sinks!

Tip: add the vinegar last and slowly to avoid an eruption 😉

This would make a great toilet bowl scrub, too!

Happy Cleaning!

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!
