Woo! The post I’ve been wanting to write forever now. If you saw my stories over the weekend, you know I ran into some technical difficulties (the worst!) with my phone. This post was supposed to go up last week, but better late than never right? A couple disclaimers before we start... I’m not 100% educated on ANY of this. I still have so much to learn and I’m learning everyday. Hence once you start reading, you’ll see I don’t share too many of my favorite roller blends, which are applied directly to your skin. Why? Because I don’t want to falsely educate you until I’m positive that I know what I’m talking about. I’ve LOVED using oils so far, and I feel they have made a difference to me. Oils are not for everyone. Some people think they are a waste of money and think they don’t work, others swear by them. To each their own! But for the purpose of my blog and sharing my lifestyle, I decided to share this with you and my journey to living a more healthy lifestyle.
Why did you start using oils? How did you hear about them?
I had a Saturday night free (rare) and my friend Lauren asked if I wanted to attend an essential oils party. I had nothing else better to do, so I said sure! I figured I would just spend it hanging out with her and learning a few new things, and that’s exactly what I did. Oh, and I also found a new passion/fell in love. You see, I was one of those people that thought oils were a trap or a scheme. But now with everything I’ve been through in life- you really don’t know anything until you try.
Why did you decide on Young Living after doing your research?
Easy. Because of there seed to seal promise. What does that mean, you ask? It’s Young Living’s promise to their customers. 100% all natural. Yes please! If you go to the grocery store and buy essential oils, you’ll notice they have expiration dates. But then they promote being natural... that’s not natural. Young Living? No expiration dates, and when you read the ingredients, it’s nothing but the pureness of the oil! So choosing Young Living was an easy choice for me.
Ok! You convinced me. How do I start with oils?
Fear not friends, I’m ready for you! You can start by signing up through this link here: https://tinyurl.com/y7q36t7l Once you sign up, PLEASE let me know. I will be your buddy along the way (yay! More friends!) and help you get started, here to answer your questions, and if you are in the area- here to attend oil parties with you ;) Comment below, comment on my Instagram post, DM me, whatever you prefer- let me know and I’ll help.
Wait, I heard about this thing called ER. Essential Rewards? Can you explain that a little?
Yes! Don’t worry, this scared me at first too. I was literally like, “Nevermind, don’t take my money!” Lol! But it’s actually so worth it. I signed up and so far don’t regret it! What made it make sense to me was comparing it to Target- of course, ha! With this rewards program, you place a monthly order of oils or rollers you want- or other things! Young Living has cleaning products, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, tooth paste, the list goes on. Once you decide on your monthly order, it’s good to go. You can go back in on your account and edit it whenever you want- every month if you’d like! Here’s the thing, it has to be worth 50 PV, which is $50. I know what you’re thinking, ugh! $50 a month?! Nope! BUT, like I said, you don’t have to spend it on oils. Stalk up on tooth paste, or your body wash! Think of it as spending it on Target, but it’s actually Young Living. And instead of getting only 5% back, you get up 10% back on your first monthly order. Then you get up to 25% back. With signing up for ER, you can get up to 25% back in free oils and other things, and if you don’t want to spend $50 that month, no problem. You can hold it off ;) No charge. Isn’t that amazing?!
So, all in all, the rewards back is what got me. I’ve only done one monthly order and I have 15 points already, and I’m deciding to save it. And then when I choose, I can cash it in and get free whatever I want. I think that’s the best deal! And no, you don’t have to sign up for ER- But if you don’t, you’ll be buying oils full price every time. No thanks!
Ok, now to the fun stuff! These are the blends that I have been diffusing in my room with my starter kit! Here’s my favorite:
Wake-Up Blend— 10 drops lemon, 10 drops citrus fresh, 5 drop stress away and 5 drops peace & calming.
Sleepy Time Blend— 10 drops Lavendar, 5 drops thieves and 5 drops frankincense.
My sleepy time blend ALWAYS consists of Lavendar, no matter what. The best part is I can really add whatever I feel like. I just do some research and blend away! I’m more lax with this, especially since none of it is technically going directly on my skin. It’s just in the air and I feel comfortable breathing any of it in, its just a matter of what I need that particular night.
