Essential Oils

Want to start using essential oils? Read this first!

Essential oils have changed my life and believe me, I was a skeptic when I was first introduced to them. How on earth could a sniff of this or a rub of that help to improve my familys health or well being?

But before I explain why essential oils are so great, you might be wondering what they actually are!

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. Theyre basically concentrated herbs! They contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodieshealth and wellness.

There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Bergamot and Eucalyptus to unusual and exotic ones like Petitgrain and Spikenard, theres an unfathomably huge range to choose from and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses.

How can essential oils help promote the health and wellbeing of you and your family?

Im no scientist (and you probably arent either), so Ill explain how essential oils have helped my loved ones and me…

  • I stress out easily which youll already know if youre a regular reader of my blog! Lavender is my go-to for stress: it relaxes me, calms me down, and takes the edge off my worries.
  • I also combine Lavender with Lemon and Peppermint to bring the sniffle and wheeze level down to just about zero in our household, throughout the year. Seasonal sniffles are officially a thing of the past!
  • Peppermint gets used during homeschool time too: we put it in the diffuser in the dining room where we work, and it helps us all focus so much better and enjoy what were working on.

Those are just three examples, but essential oils have also replaced many everyday products that I used to spend a fortune on. I now clean my home with oil-infused natural cleaners rather than toxic chemicals from the supermarket, for example. I cleanse my face with oil-infused natural products too. And everyone in the family benefits from using calming essential oils in the diffuser before bedtime!

Can you just use any essential oils?

In my opinion, no. Ive done a lot of research into this and if you ask me, theres one particular brand that stands head and shoulders above the rest: Young Living.

Introducing Young Living Essential Oils!

There are many reasons why this brand is so great, but here are my three favorites:

1: The source matters

One of the most important things Ive learned in my journey to healthy living is that its not just what something is its where it comes from, how its grown, and how its processed. Whether its blueberries fresh from the farm, or cows on green pasture, or a soft organic t-shirt, I know that the source matters.

I did many hours of research to find an essential oil company that I felt I could trust with my familys health. Young Living is that company: they truly care about quality.

To ensure the purity of their oils, the team at Young Living set the highest standards for planting, harvesting, and distilling on the farms they own and co-op. And if Im going to be putting products on my familys skin and around our home, I want to know theyre pure and unadulterated!

2: You become part of a big, friendly community

As a Young Living customer, you automatically become a member of a big oily family that will give you all the support and advice you need! Its a wonderful feeling to know you have the help and reassurance of a generous and caring community of moms, experts, and lifelong users.

Ive been using my oils for a long time, but I still reach out to the our close-knit community for their advice and expertise!

3: The Young Living Premium Starter Kit is the best introduction to essential oils (and its such great value, too!)

Some great ways to use the essential oils in your Premium Starter Pack

Each of the oils in your Premium Starter Pack has SO many fabulous uses, but here are some of the ways in which I like to use them:

Lavender:

  • Just one single drop rubbed over dry lips will nourish them completely!

  • Stop a nosebleed, stat! Put one drop onto a tissue and stick it on an ice cube. Carefully place the ice cube under the middle of your upper lip, all the way up to the base of your nose.

  • Massage several drops into the scalp to eliminate dandruff.

Peppermint:

  • Apply directly to sore joints to help ease the pain.

  • For a stuffy nose, dab a drop on your tongue and inhale some into your nose.

  • To beat motion sickness, rub four drops onto your stomach and chest.

Lemon:

  • Rub the oil straight onto callouses twice a day to soften them and support healing.

  • Stained clothes? Rub the oil all over the stain, then immediately put the item in the washing machine. Works like no other stain remover even on dried-out stains!

  • Use it as a one-ingredient hand sanitizer!

Frankincense:

  • Strengthen your immune system by dabbing a few drops on the bottoms of your feet.

  • Put a couple of drops on a cyst or wart twice daily, and itll be gone in no time.

  • Improve your concentration by applying a couple of drops to the back of your neck and temples.

PanAway:

PanAway is an oil blend containing wintergreen, helichrysum, clove and peppermint

  • Rub it across your lower back if you feel discomfort from sitting in front of a computer.

  • Ease minor head tension by applying it to your temples.

  • Rub it onto sore and achy muscles to relieve pain.

Stress Away:

Stress Away is an oil blend containing copaiba, lime, cedarwood, vanilla, ocotea and lavender:

  • If youre looking for a sense of relaxation or you want to reduce feelings of stress to help you sleep better, Stress Away is for you!

  • Apply it generously to your wrists or the back of your neck, use it in a diffuser, or add two drops to water as needed.

Thieves:

  • To soothe a sore throat, gargle a few drops of oil in water, then dilute it with a carrier oil and apply it to the neck and throat.

  • Make a disinfectant spray: put half a teaspoon of salt into a 4oz spray bottle, then add 20 drops of the oil (letting the oil absorb the salt). Slowly add distilled water, shake, and youre done! Use on grimy hands, stinky shoes, lunch boxes and anything else youd like to disinfect!

Purification:

Purification is an oil blend containing citronella, lemongrass, lavandin, rosemary, tea tree and myrtle.

  • Add a few drops to shoes to help neutralize odors.

  • Dab a drop directly onto the site of an insect bite, and the oil will calm down the inflamed blood vessels under the skin that cause the itching.

  • Deter bed bugs! Mix the oil with water in a spray bottle, then spray the bed before you get in.

Melaleuca Alternifolia (tea tree oil):

  • Dab some on a zit or blemish to clear it up pronto.

  • Pair it with coconut oil and use it for diaper rash on sensitive bottoms!

  • Apply directly to toenails to get rid of that yellow tinge.

Joy:

Joy is a fragrant oil blend containing bergamot, ylang ylang, geranium, lemon, coriander, tangerine and jasmine among others.

  • Diffuse it in the home to lift everyones spirits!

  • Rub a few drops on your neck and wrists for a natural perfume.
