Jumping into Essential Oils

I recently took the dive into essential oils.  I have friends and family members who use them, and was always hearing about their many uses.  I loved that they provided natural alternatives to modern day medicines and cleaners, and really wanted to try them out for myself.  I did a bit of research (and honestly, by a "bit" I really do mean only a "bit"), but mostly asked around.  Most everyone I knew used Young Living, so I went ahead and decided on that brand.



When my husband received a Christmas bonus, I used a small chunk of it to purchase our starter kit as a "wholesale member."  This is key...you get BIG savings as a wholesale member, and you DO NOT have to sell anything.  This option allows you to sell if you want to, but you can also just use it for yourself, which is what I'm doing.  You get a 25% discount on anything you buy as a wholesale member.

The starter kit I purchased is pictured above.  It is called the "Premium Starter Kit with Bamboo Diffuser" and cost me $160 (I think $180 after shipping and sales tax).  It included the Everyday Oil collection, which has: Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil), Peppermint, Joy, Purification, Pan Away, Thieves, and Stress Away.  It also came with Citrus Fresh, one roller fitment, a handful of sample packets, and the bamboo diffuser.  They do have smaller and less expensive starter kits, too.

The Everyday oils kit when purchased alone (without a wholesale account) is $163.  The diffuser alone is regularly $117.  So, as you can see, if you are at all interested in purchasing some oils, you might as well sign up as a wholesale member and basically get your diffuser for free and then a 25% discount on anything else you might want!  Totally worth it.


In case you're like me and are a bit concerned that there may be pressure to sell, I have been shocked that I have not had ONE EMAIL about needing to sell or that I should sell or whatever.  Nothing.  I have been so pleased!  But, if I ever choose to sell, I have access to all the info I may need online.  

So far, we've been diffusing Thieves blend in the morning and at night.  Aside from it smelling amazing, it is supposed to be very cleansing for the air and ward of sick germs!  I've also used thieves to clean my counters, lavender to rub on sores and cuts, and Stress Away on my kids wrists when they were in stressful situations (like doctor's offices!).  I also started using Frankincense on my husband's neck as he has a big lump (he's been to several doctors trying to figure out what it is).  Frankincense is supposed to be excellent for things like cysts or other skin issues.  I'm also going to try the tea tree oil on some face issues that I've been having.

In the near future, I'm going to be sharing some of the ways my sister in law uses her oils...she's incredibly creative!  I can't wait to share some of her recipes (hand sanitizer, toy sanitizer, etc.) with you!  And I think you'll feel inspired to try a more natural approach to everyday health and cleaning.

If you do decide to join me in this essential oil journey, I'd love if you'd put my member number as your "referrer."  And if not me, please use the number of a friend or someone else you know so that SOMEONE can get a little bonus to purchase more oils for their family, too!  My personal number is: "2368276", and you can sign up HERE. 

I can't wait to share with you all the many ideas my sister in law has to share, as well as all the uses I find for implementing essential oils into my daily life.
