Essential Oils Product Spotlight


Let’s get started!

So what exactly are these magical little bottles of oils?!

Essential oils are the “lifeblood” of a plant. They protect plants from disease and provide nutrients. Plants rely on the essential oils to grow and adapt to their surroundings.

Essential oils can be found in a plant’s flower, stem, leaves, bark or fruit. They are usually extracted through steam distillation. Essential Oils are very complex, containing hundreds or thousands of different chemical compounds; this is what gives each plant its unique healing attributes and characteristics.

They were man’s first medicine! You may just be hearing about essential oils for the first time but they have actually been used for a really, really long time. Today, essential oils are still used to bring health and wellness to the body – mentally, emotionally and physically!

Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils can:
-reach every cell in your body within 20 minutes when applied topically
-help eliminate toxins in your body
-help support the different systems of the body: digestive, nervous, muscular, and more.
-promote cellular regeneration
-pass through the blood-brain barrier
-work on emotions via the limbic system of your brain
-promote healthy emotional wellness and relax and clear the mind
-transport nutrients
-be powerful antioxidants
-remove toxins in the air
-promote healthy, breathable air
- be a great alternative to chemical or toxic fragrances.

Why Young Living?

"As the world leader in essential oils, we believe that everyone deserves a life full of abundance and wellness. Our vision is to bring the life-changing benefits of essential oils to every home, family, and lifestyle.
Our story started more than 20 years ago with a simple, home-built essential oil distillery. Today, our farms and community span the globe. Because of our proven commitment to provide nature’s best, millions trust us to deliver superior essential oils."


Two of the best questions you can ask are “How do I use these” And, “How do I use them safely?” We want you to know that we are here to answer that for you, today and every day!
Safety is important when it comes to using essential oils. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all of the information available, but using common sense and starting gradually will help ease any sort of intimidation you might feel as you begin using essential oils in your everyday life.

On the bottle itself, on Young Living’s website, and in our groups are guides to using EOs safely. Know that you can pull back the label on the bottle, and look up the oil on YL’s website alway for suggested use, to know if dilution is recommended etc.

When storing essential oils, it’s important to keep them in a cool, dark place with lids tightly closed (and always out of reach of children). You’ll also want to keep carrier oils (like coconut, olive, vitamin e, sweet almond oil, v6 etc.) on hand for dilution. Always use and store EOs in glass containers, especially when drinking them in water, since most plastic products contain chemicals that can be broken down by the oil.


There are three ways to use Young Living Essential Oils (YLEO): Topically, Aromatically, and by Ingestion.

+ TOPICALLY means to apply directly to the body. We always recommend you dilute your YLEO with a carrier oil – like coconut oil or grapeseed oil – until, at the very least, you know how your body is going to react to the oils. Many essential oils are “hot” oils, so you’ll always use a carrier oil with them. (Thieves, PanAway, and Peppermint are all examples of hot oils that should be diluted.) We always recommend using a carrier oil when applying oils topically to children, until you feel comfortable doing otherwise.

+ AROMATICALLY means to breathe in the oils. In your kit, you’ll get a diffuser, and that’s the easiest way to use essential oils, but you can also put a drop or two in your hands and cup them over your nose and mouth and breathe deeply. You could even put a little essential oils on a cotton ball and stick it into the vents of your car!

+ INGESTING your oils means to swallow them – either in drink or food, or by filling a vegetable capsule. Some people are very comfortable with ingesting and others aren’t. This is a very personal choice and no one here will ever judge you based on your decision either way. Not all oils are made to be ingested, so please refer to the label of each oil for proper usage instructions. NOTE: All “Vitality” oils are part of Young Living’s dietary oils line and are GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) and can be ingested if you choose to do so.




Lavender – considered “the swiss army knife” of all oils and you will likely find yourself reaching for it often. Just a drop may help soothe minor skin abrasions, and a drop in a new tube of mascara can result in fuller, longer eyelashes. Lavender can also be used for the following things: Combine Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint to support healthy respiratory function and help you enjoy the seasons with ease. Lavender is very calming and we use it to support a good night's rest!


Lemon Vitality – can be used for a variety of things, including cooking (lemon pasta), baking (lemon bars), and for a balanced health and wellness regimen. A drop or two of Lemon can also help you get sticky, hard to remove items or residue off of windows and other surfaces with ease. We also clean with Lemon often! Talk about the entire house smelling wonderful. Lemon is very cleansing for our bodies and sometimes we use this topically on problem areas on our skin, too! Talk about versatile!



Peppermint Vitality – this is one of the oils that I will never find myself without and is always in my purse for on-the-go support. I use it to support healthy digestion, as part of healthy weight management, in the diffuser to give us a little pick me up and more! It is my go to oil for head tension as well!



Copaiba Vitality – is a great driving oil, meaning it adds extra power when applied on top of any oil. It can also be taken internally to promote wellness as part of a daily health regimen. I love to make a Copaiba tea with one drop of the EO in hot water! One of my favorite ways to use this oil is making a Copaiba Epsom Salt Bath – combine 5 drops of oil with 1 cup of Epsom salt to unwind at the end of the day.



Purification – a blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle essential oils, is great for removing any offensive odor in your home or car. Add a few drops to a cotton ball and place inside those sports bags, garbage cans, stinky shoes and more! We also love to add a few drops to our wool dryer balls when placing our clothes in the dryer. It leaves our clothes smelling fresh and clean!



Panaway – Trust me when I say that this oil right here just might become your favorite! It’s a perfect companion after a workout, or a lifesaver for those days that you’ve overexerted yourself physically. This blend of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint essential oils can be used in a massage to help ease muscle discomfort.



Digize Vitality – is a blend of Ginger, Anise, Fennel, Peppermint, Tarragon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, and Juniper essential oils that was formulated to aid healthy digestion. It’s rich unique aroma and taste can be calming and comforting. This oil is one that goes with us every where, especially when traveling! You can use it as a dietary supplement in your water to help support a healthy digestive system.



RC – Everyone who has lungs should own this oil! This blend of Spruce, Cyprus, and three types of Eucalyptus (E. Globulus, E. Radiata, and E.Citriodora) essential oils packs a big punch! It’s robust scent is a great way to perk up and it’s energetic aroma will help you stay motivated throughout the day. One sniff and you’ll know why people don’t want to find themselves without this blend. Awesome for pre and post workouts, amazing for overall respiratory support!



Stress Away – It pretty much does what the name suggests!!! Understatement! It helps bring relief to everyday stresses we all can feel. This blend of Copaiba, Lime, Vanilla, Cedarwood, Ocotea, and Lavender essential oils smells amazing and when diffused or applied topically provides a calming aroma and feeling.



Frankincense – is known as the “holy anointing oil” and is arguably one of the most recognizable essential oils due to its wide range of supportive properties, as well as being one of the gifts given to baby Jesus. It is highly useful in supporting the skin. It’s a great add to facial moisturizers, diffusing for meditation, focus and grounding of emotions.


Thieves Vitality – is one of Young Living’s most popular oil blends and has a spicy scent and flavor. Smells like Christmas!!!

This proprietary blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils may help support a healthy immune system and promote overall wellness.

We apply a drop to the bottom of our feet daily to help support a healthy immune system.

Emotions: Panic Change Stress Lows Highs Tension Loneliness Abandonment Grief




Friend! 

Let’s get vulnerable for a minute. Who can relate to some of this here…..the panic emotions that start to set in in life…… Sometimes life starts to feel like a big wave of water sweeping over your head and you’re working so hard just trying to get above it. You might be laying in bed and all the sudden feel a wave of adrenaline hitting you that screams "run". You feel like you're trapped or chained down but your body is telling you to get away! THESE are the moments of panic that I know some of you experience. I experience them too sometimes. Take heart! You're not alone! 

You might feel many pressures in life as a mom, a dad, a provider, a woman, a wife, a husband etc. There are so many hats that we are all juggling and to keep up with the responsibilities and jobs that come along with each can really start to send your emotions spiraling out of control in certain seasons. There incredible tools and resources waiting for you to use so you don't have to constantly live with these feelings of entrapment!


We have oils that can bring support and balance into the emotions. We have oils that can support the brain and calm it’s reactions. We have oils that can support the hormones and level out highs and lows. We have oils that we can use in moments of panic, change, stress, lows, highs, etc.

Here is a great list that are go-tos for supporting your body in these moments. Use them often and consistently. Use them BEFORE you have these moments as well.

+Valor

On the bottoms of the feet, or a single drop on one wrist and hold the other wrist to it for a few moments to balance the entire system. Valor is a blend that is close to the heart of Gary and YL. The integrity of this valuable blend will always be of highest priority.
This is our bravery oil.
Our courage oil.
Our fortitude oil.
Use it to greet each morning with a positive attitude, and to refocus at the end of a challenging day.
It will support our brain and our body in just the right way to offer us amazing support.


+Peace and Calming

Encourages deep relaxation. Great support in your bedtime routines or to support overactive children. Uplifting. Supports tension. The legendary one and only original calming oil. For bedtime, shopping time, driving time, stressing time. Pets, kids, young, and old can benefit from its soothing power! And it's been gone for a long time.
-Apply to the chest and over the heart.
-Apply to wrists and breathe in deeply.
-Apply to temples, back and neck and ears to smell throughout the day.
-Diffuse all day.

+Frankincense 

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) was once regarded as more valuable than gold in ancient cultures. It was in recipes God gave to his people for cleansing and worship. Why? Because He understands us as physical beings. That we are a whole: body, mind, and spirit, and that we need help bringing that all together into a cohesive focus. Frankincense has been used to ground and focus the mind during times of prayer and mental strain or grief.
Frankincense also has a similar effect inside the body, encouraging the cells and functions to come back to their foundations. To help the body to remember what it does and why it does it. What should it be protecting? What should it be removing? How should it be functioning? Where should the garbage go? Frankincense quietly asks our systems all the right questions and then supports them in doing their job well. Just as it's best to surround ourselves daily with those who are wise, it's also good to give ourselves frequent exposure to this ancient, revered oil. Who doesn't need a daily dose of calming, grounded influence?!
-Apply to the chest and over the heart.
-Apply to wrists and breathe in deeply.
-Apply to temples, back and neck and ears to smell throughout the day.
-Diffuse all day.
-Add to capsule or drink to consume internally.


+Grounding
Just what it says, this blend helps us to get rooted, think more clearly, and let the frantic unnecessary melt into the background. Grounding Essential Oil is a very emotional relaxing oil that contains seven therapeutic grade oils.
This oil will stabilize and calm a person on first application. This is a good oil for those who make poor choices in relationships, work or home because they simply are in denial of their own true reality.
Many times this happens because we just don't know how to deal with the emotional component so we get stuck and can't move forward. This oil can help.
-Apply to the chest and over the heart.
-Apply to wrists and breathe in deeply.
-Apply to temples, back and neck and ears to smell throughout the day.
-Diffuse all day.

+Lavender

For centuries lavender has been used for sleep. It has been put into pillows and mattresses, wrapped up with clothes, added to handkerchiefs (hello, diffuser) and used in aromatherapy for relaxation. It has been added to all kinds of tonics and potions for skin and smelling salts for fragile ladies whose corsets were tied a little too tight.
Add to diffuser for calming and sleep
- Apply to palms and inhale deeply when upset or tense
- Add to skincare recipes or directly to soothe skin
- Apply to sinus areas to soothe the respiratory system, especially with seasonal changes
- Rub on tiny feet for comfort


The benefits you experience with lemon in your first year of oiling may differ from the benefits you see in 3-4 years. It continues working on layers of toxins and emotions stored in the body, bringing the body into a state of ideal frequency and purity.
I say this, because lemon is an oil you can get comfortable using multiple times a day, making it easy to forget how powerful it truly is, but it is one of the most frequently praised essential oils when it comes to testimonies of improved health and emotional wellness. A good rule of thumb for lemon is to keep it somewhere easily accessible, because it really is an Everyday Oil!
Make a habit of adding lemon to drinking water, because physical detox creates a holistic effect! This can help with clarity and relieving the emotions that come from a toxic body.
- For releasing feelings of emptiness, heaviness, and dark thoughts, try lemon and Joy applied to the spine and diffused together.
- When you feel weepy or sad, try a drop of lemon diluted with carrier oil right in the center of the forehead and focus on the word “Joy.”
- For a general sense of emptiness, apply lemon (with a carrier oil if desired) across the breastbone area and diffuse.
- Combine with lavender in the diffuser for feelings of loneliness and abandonment


Each person is different so how your body responds to these will vary. Try each one consistently to find YOUR blend. I suggest using lemon with each as your body is coping with stress.

There are so so many more oils that you can use! What oils do you use in these moments?

Babies and Oils Class




Having a baby is a transformative time, and it can make you take another look at the products you’re bringing into your home. Knowing how to safely use essential oils for infants is important for you and your baby, and the Young Living Seedlings™ line is filled with products that you can feel good about using with your little one.




When looking to introduce baby to essential oils, you can feel confident knowing that we’ve formulated these plant-based products with pure essential oils for babies. Hear from Young Living Product Marketing Manager Courtney Chapman about what sets this line apart and how we made products containing essential oils for infants, then listen to Global Trainer Brittany Jacobs share her routine with Seedlings and her baby girl.

Sleepy Baby Routine!

Love this info from sweet Kristen Rae Critz!

This routine has been so sweet for us every night. Doing a bedtime routine is really important as a "signal" for the babes to know that it's time for sleep. Being consistent with it really helps to unwind your babe. We have been moving Ford's bedtime earlier every night so that he gets enough rest and having this routine has helped so much.

For baby Ford, we have been doing bath time every night with the seedlings shampoo and wash, then I take him upstairs and rub him down with the seedlings lotion and apply Lavender + Peace and Calming.

+SEEDLING SHAMPOO & BODY WASH:
Young Living Seedlings™ Baby Wash & Shampoo is formulated specially for infants’ delicate skin. Its mild, gentle formula is tear-free, sulfate-free, and made from 100 percent plant-based, naturally derived ingredients. It leaves skin and hair clean, soft, and smooth and makes tangles easy to comb out.

There are THREE key ingredients, Lavender EO, eyebright extract and Calendula extract.
So lets take it a bit deeper and talk about the "tear free" formula. Most products that make claims for "tear free" still have warnings that say to "rinse eyes with water immediately" if the shampoo gets in their eyes. BUT OURS DOESN'T HAVE THAT WARNING!!! Why?

Ours has eye bright extract! So not only is it tear free and wont hurt their eyes, but if it gets into the eyes it actually promotes eye health.

How amazing is this?! That is the baseline of YL! Not only are they removing the BAD but they are replacing the bad with something that is actually beneficial for our bodies.

+SEEDLINGS LOTION
Combat the effects of dry skin and prevent future dryness with Young Living Seedlings™ Baby Lotion. This non-greasy moisturizer supports moisture barrier function and smoothly absorbs into your baby’s delicate skin, leaving it moisturized, soft, and smooth.
Made without alcohol, parabens, synthetic fragrances, artificial dyes, or other unwanted ingredients, Seedlings Baby Lotion is formulated with 100 percent plant-based ingredients and pure essential oils to soothe your little one with a light, calming scent.

+LAVENDER
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. It’s this dynamic aroma that has made the flower a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products. As one of our most popular products, Lavender oil is a great beginner oil and a must for every home.

Lavender essential oil isn’t just a favorite because of its classic scent—it’s also highly versatile. From skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse many areas of your life.

+PEACE AND CALMING
Peace & Calming® essential oil is a gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. This fragrant oil is a wonderful addition to your meditation, evening routine, or playtime with the kids. With a comforting, fresh aroma, Peace & Calming oil creates a relaxing environment that’s especially great for homes with children. You’ll love that you can use this oil for you children’s bedtime and then for yourself for a moment of quiet after the house has settled down.




LOVE this from Casey Leigh Wiegand:

Adelaide was my first Oily Pregnancy, my First Oily PostPartum experience and now she's my first Oily baby ! 

I have LOVED these three oils for her! (she's now 7 months old) They have been AMAZING. I put all three in a roller ( I will let you decide for yourself how many drops since all our littles are different)....then filled the rest with v6 carrier oil from Young Living and I roll it on her spine/ chest and feet daily. Usually a couple of times a day! 

Its a beautiful wellness roller with gentle oils to support her tiny body! Not to mention it smells dreamy  ;)

( video here on how to make a roller:https://vimeo.com/187998723)

+ "Gentle Baby™ is a soft, fragrant combination of essential oils designed specifically for mothers and babies. It helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. It is also soothing to tender skin. Many of the essential oils in this blend are used in elite cosmetics to enhance a youthful appearance."

+ I mean Lavender is basically the unicorn oil, what do we not use lavender for?
Remember, it's our sweet Grandmother oil! Gentle, soft, comforting, relaxing, and all about making us at home. This is the Swiss Army knife of oils, good for anything!

+Frank. Just read up on the benefits of frank & the support power of frank You want this going on your families daily. Not to mention its grounding! 

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) was once regarded as more valuable than gold in ancient cultures. Frankincense also has a similar effect inside the body, encouraging the cells and functions to come back to their foundations.

The perfect combo for my little pumpkin!

Using Supplements & Oils during Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum

(Based off the class taught by Dr. Cindy Haggerton)
Hydration is a big step in maintaining a healthy pregnancy! Drink plenty of liquids throughout your entire pregnancy and while you are nursing.
Before taking an oil internally, smell it to prevent adverse effects. Next, try applying the oil to the skin with a carrier oil. 1 tsp of carrier oil for every 1 drop of oil.
Drink plenty of Ningxia Red throughout pregnancy and have on hand for labor and nursing
Preterm labor - examine emotional needs and endocrine system support
Constant stress plays a role in labor and delivery. Use Endoflex on the neck, lower back and base of ribs for stress support. Can be used throughout entire pregnancy. Nutmeg, myrtle, myrrh and cedarwood can also be used for adrenal support. 
Magnesium should be taken during pregnancy for circulatory support. SuperCal provides calcium and magnesium. 
Avoid Jasmine before birth, but is helpful for placenta release
