Wellness Wednesday: Essential Oils info Session on Young Living

Let’s talk natural wellness with essential oils. For the past 7 months, I’ve been making so many changes in my life. I’ve always been a high-stress, anxious person that also struggles with getting a good sleep. My mood was low, I was hating having the leave the house and I needed something to change. I heard about essential oils and thought, what do I have to lose? I grabbed my Young Living starter kit and haven’t looked back since.


Those 11 little bottles of plant magic have changed my life. They have everything from makeup, to a baby line, vitamins and supplements, cleaning kits and everything in between. Now, I have a HUGE collection of oils, but I still use all my starter oils all the time. I had no idea where to get started and this was definitely the answer.

Here’s what comes with the starter kit:

🌿Lemon: Oh sweet, sweet lemon. Drink it all day long in your water to help flush out your system. Wonderful for focusing!

🌿Lavender: What can’t you use lavender for? That is the real questions. Amazing for relaxation, soothing for the skin, very calming for sleepy little’s and adults alike. Diffuse at night to you and your kids can get into that deep deep sleep!

🌿Peppermint: Support your tummy and digestive system. Just one drop can increase oxygen levels! So drink during your workout too. Also support your respiratory system by using this bad boy. Diffuse in the morning with Lemon to get everyone up and moving! It is also a lifesaver for head tension.

🌿Copaiba: promotes a youthful appearance, supports the body’s response to injury and irritation, great for occasional inflammation of the gums, and enhances other oils. It is also great for battling inflammation!

🌿Raven: Keeps you breathing happily by applying on your chest and diffusing. Apply on the bottoms of your (or your husband’s) feet to breathe well all night long. Perfect for those rattly noisy kids during the winter month, rub on their chest to open those passages! This oil is good if you like to, um, breath.

🌿Thieves: The healthy-keeper. Drink in tea to support immunity, take in a capsule at night and in the morning to support great health. Apply to the bottom of your kids feet daily to build up their immune system to fight off all the back to school germs! Kiss it as a thank you for all that it does.

🌿Citrus Fresh: The most uplifting and fresh aroma. Basically an instant mood booster.

🌿PanAway: Great for after a workout or roll it on your neck after a long drive. Anything that is sore and achy needs Panaway.

🌿Frankincense: Incredible for the skin and immune system! Promotes feelings of calmness and balance, and eases occasional anxiety. This helps us focus and stay grounded, too. Great oil to diffuse during homework time or during meditation!

🌿DiGize: All tummy support and digestive health. If you eat food, you need this oil!

🌿Stress Away: The name really says it all. Stress = gone. Smells like a tropical beach vacation.

⭐Plus extra goodies! A beautiful diffuser of your choice, two sample packets of the amazing antioxidant superdrink Ningxia, and a packet of thieves cleaner!


Now, my favorite part about my oils (besides how freaking amazing they are) is the soulful community that comes with it. It’s a team of lifelong friends that help you use and love your oils, yes please!

Why did I chose Young Living? I’m so crazy passionate about this and I’m going to break it down for you. The vast majority of essential oils on the market are only suitable for fragrance or perfumes. The reason Young Living’s oils are so different is their unmatched commitment to producing a pure, unadulterated oil. Young Living’s devotion to creating a highly therapeutic product means they’ve invested in their own farms, care for and nurture their own plants, trees, and shrubs, and finally distill, test, and bottle the oils that arrive on your doorstep. Anyone can go visit a YL farm and see for themselves! If at any point in the production process something doesn’t meet their standards, they completely get rid of it and start over. They don’t crank out oils just to make a buck, they want for the plants to grow sustainably and wait until they’re perfect. No other company owns farms or distilleries. Repeat. NONE. They have a seed to seal promise that truly no one compares to.


Honestly, my oils, oily community and my little oily business have been the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I’ve been able to eliminate so many chemicals from my family’s life, while keeping us above the wellness line, boosting my mood, and actually being able to manage my crippling anxiety. And the business? Well financial freedom and residual income should be on everyone’s agenda. I’d love for you to follow my journey and join if you’re ready !
