November Newsletter

Wait. What? How in the world is it already November?! 

Anyone else feeling the chill in the air and immediately becoming this gif?? Sweater weather is in full swing and we are starting to think about all the holiday things! I think we can all use an extra dose of festivity this year, so drop some Christmas spirit in your diffuser and start making that list for Santa!

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we’ve got some fun Thanksgiving content comin’ at ya along with the relaunch of the holiday catalog this month!!

And in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want you all to know how truly grateful I am to have you along on this journey with me. It means so much to me and my family and I will forever be thanking Jesus for these oils, products and especially the people I get to share them with (that’s you!!)!

Hostess Gifts

‘Tis the season for holiday gatherings, even if this year it looks a little different…
No matter what the gathering, you never want to show up empty-handed so here are a few ideas for gifts for that superstar hostess who is doing all of the work so you don’t have to!

Body Butter – Either a DIY recipe in a cute little mason jar or YL’s luxurious coconut lime body butter, you can’t go wrong!
Bath Bombs + Loofa – Who wouldn’t enjoy the relaxation of a quiet bath after the madness of hosting a holiday get together?! Pair the lavender or stress away bath bombs with a fresh loofa or bath sponge and you’ve got the perfect “thank you, now treat yo’ self” gift!
Stress Away + Wine – I think it’s safe to say that Stress Away is a crowd favorite. Pair it with a bottle of your host’s favorite vino and I’d say you’ve got the “favorite guest” award in the bag!
Mug + YL Tea – Have y’all tried YL’s new teas?! OMG they are to-die-for!! Grab a cute mug from anthro or target, add the Spiced Turmeric Tea Sachets and boom! Simple, easy, delicious!
Satin Mint Facial Scrub + Hair Turban – The satin mint face scrub just feels like luxury on it’s own but if you want to go the extra step, you could throw in a quick-drying hair wrap and have your hostess feeling extra fancy stepping out of the shower!

You’ll be amazed how much longer your pumpkins will last!!

Holiday Cooking with Vitality Oils

Anyone else get halfway into a recipe and realize you don’t have any fresh basil or you JUST ran out of oregano?? This happens way more often than I’d like to admit.

Thank goodness for those vitality oils I can reach for (whether I’m out of the fresh thing or not!). I especially love to use them when a recipe only calls for a small amount of something that 1. I will probably never use again or 2. the rest will end up going bad. No need to waste that money, use what you’ve already got!

With all the Thanksgiving cooking right around the corner, here’s a handy little chart to help you incorporate the oils you have sitting there just waiting to be tagged in!!

Thieves Mouthwash Hack

Thieves is sooooo amazing for supporting our immune systems and giving us a boost year-round, and especially as it gets cooler!

Next time you have a scratchy throat try filling a small (1-2 ounce) spray bottle with thieves mouthwash and topping it off with a few drops of peppermint vitality! Then spritz in the back of your throat as needed for relief plus a fresh breath boost!

This feels especially clutch at a time when the second you cough in public you get the side eye. Knock out that throat tickle fast and stay well, friends!

The Holiday Catalog Is Coming…Again!!

I know we all got soooooo excited to see the GORGEOUS holiday catalog items release last month!! In fact, we were so excited that the site saw 3x the traffic of our biggest black friday and just couldn’t keep up with our enthusiasm! 

Well, Young Living has pulled the catalog down and delayed the availability of the new items to ensure that all goes smoothly and we are able to get our hands on all the goods!

With that said…. the holiday catalog is set to go live on the site the week of NOV 9 so mark your calendars and prepare to snag some vanilla!!! It is so dreamy!!!

If you want to browse the products and make your shopping list in the meantime, be sure to check out these posts on facebook!

Holiday Must-Haves:

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!
