Learn to Use Essential Oils & How to Buy Quality Oils

I have a new adventure that I’m excited to share with you.
I’m using essential oils. I bet you are like me and you have heard people talk about them over the years, but you may not have really researched them.
I’ve tried to be as natural and organic as possible over the years and in the process I read about Essential Oils – even dabbling with them in my DIY Hard Lotion Bars and Organic Brown Sugar Body Scrub, but I didn’t really research them fully because it seemed like a lot of information. But with some recent family health concerns, and after all of us getting the flu this year, I was ready to find something to help.
Did you know that essential oils can be used to lower stress levels, remove household toxins, relieve sore muscles, improve mental clarity and so much more? There are so many everyday uses that since the day I received my kit, I have been using it non-stop!
But, I also knew that many bottles of oils say to not put it directly on skin because they may burn. That left me a little wary about using them. Until I started researching Young Living Essential Oils.
“When it comes to our essential oils, Young Living sets the standard for purity and authenticity. We carefully monitor the production of our oils from beginning to end through our unique Seed to Seal® process, ensuring the purity of each essential oil and protecting nature’s living energy in every bottle.
For more than two decades, we’ve diligently overseen every step of this process, both on our own global farms and with our carefully vetted partner farms.This unsurpassed commitment to quality means that you can be confident that the Young Living essential oils and oil-infused products you use in your home are safe and effective.” – Young Living
What truly impressed me about Young Living is that they are the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), test their own equipment (also tested by a 3rd party), and they do not add chemicals to the plant to get the oils.Young Living is also the only company that is directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing. If I’m using a product to help my family stay healthy, I want to know exactly what is in it. I don’t want to put extra harmful chemicals on our skin, in our air, or in our bodies.
How I Use Essential Oils
I bought the premium starter kit from Young Living and I’m so glad I did. I’ve already used many of the oils, here are a few ways that I’ve been using them each day:
- DIY All Natural Mosquito Spray
- Build Your Immune System Quickly and Naturally
- DIY Sore Muscle Cream
- All Natural Nasal Support
I love that the Premium Starter Kit that I ordered came with a diffuser and all these oils.
With all these amazing ways to use oils, you can imagine the amount of savings you can start to see. Less doctor visits, less medicine, less bottles of different cleaning products…the list goes on.
Plus, what really pushed me to buy the Premium Starter Kit, is the extra 24% discount that I can get on Young Living oils by becoming a wholesale member. If you are thinking of using oils, you don’t want to miss this deal.
How to Buy Young Living Essential Oils:
There are a couple options for you. You can buy the your oils at the retail price (“customer”), or you can sign up as a wholesale member and save 24% on your purchases. There is absolutely no obligation to sell or turn this into a business with the wholesale member option. You just have to spend $50 a year – and you can do that with the starter kit.
Selecting Your Starter Kit
There are a couple different starter kit options. My recommendation is to choose the Premium Starter Kit because it come with oils that you will want to get you started on your oily journey. You’ll also get to choose which diffuser you want (I have the home diffuser and love it). The Premium Starter Kit also comes with the Premium Essential Oils Collection.
You’ll be able to start using your oils immediately for so many different things around the house and for your family. I use all the oils in the kit and love the home diffuser, which has 2 separate settings and turns off when it is out of water (so you don’t have to worry about it heating up at night when it runs out).
Step 1: Go to the Young Living page and fill out the form.
- Make sure you select “Wholesale Member” to get the 24% discount.
- Be sure that the “sponsor ID” and “enroller ID” say 1820694 (that way I know to send you your FREE Essential Oils Reference Book)
**If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business – which is completely optional), then you can get an EIN from the IRS (it just takes a few seconds) and use that number instead.
Step 2: Select your starter kit. My recommendation is the Premium Starter Kit because you get the most for your money. Update: There is now a NingXia Premium Starter Kit and a Thieves Starter Kit (with various Thieves products)!
Step 3: I recommend skipping Step 3 in the sign up process. I’ll send over an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs) – but you can decide that later if you want.
Step 4: Look for an email from me with more information about how to join the great Facebook groups available for learning more about essential oils.
Step 5 (OPTIONAL): If you would like to earn bonus oils/products this month, then get your order total up to 190 PV (different products have different point values). You could get the Start Living With Everyday Oils kit and automatically have 100 point value… then you’ll just need 90 more points to get the bonus oils.
For example, you could grab
- Thieves Oil at 33.75 points
- 15 ml bottle of Lavender at 23.5 points
- 15 ml bottle of Lime at 11 points
- 14.4 ounces of Thieves Household Cleaner at 22 points (just pour one capful of the concentrated Thieves cleaning solution into a spray bottle and it lasts for a really long time!)
All of those items will bring your total points up to $190.25 which will qualify you to get the BONUS oils! Again, this is completely optional!
OR if you are interested in starting the cleanse which jump started my weight loss journey, you could purchase the 5 Day Cleanse for 121.25 points. Again, this is optional!
Step 6: Enter your payment information and confirm your order.
