Fall Ready With Essential Oils Class

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Class! 

Be sure to have a pen and notebook ready.  Get comfortable. Let's begin!

Thank you for joining us for a FUN class on all things FALL. Fall recipes (pumpkin everything yes please!), Fall DIYs and Young Living products that we need to stock up on as we head into Fall.


We are so excited to have you joining us today/tonight for this class about all things fall! We’ll be chatting about all the immune support, amazing diffuser blends, and all the fall-inspired DIYs and recipes we can make with our oils!

Just a quick disclaimer—we’re not medical professionals, and are not making any claims that these oils can treat, cure, or heal a disease. As always, we encourage you to consult a medical professional before use!

With that being said, what are you most looking forward to this fall?!


For me, when I think of fall, I immediately think of Thieves. Whether you have been using oils for a long time or are brand new to this journey, Thieves will always be one of your go-to’s for immune support!

Thieves essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma (it’s basically like Christmas and all of your fall dreams in a bottle!). Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products.

With the benefits of Thieves oil including cleaning power and an irresistibly spicy scent, Young Living offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste. Looking to make your home smell as clean as it looks? Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house for an aroma that makes every room smell more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.

This is going nonstop in the diffuser in this household during the fall and winter months for all the immune support! We also use it in our wellness rollers that we rub on the bottoms of our feet and down our spines morning and night!

What do you love about thieves?!


These are three of my favorite oils when it comes to those yummy fall scents and all the immune support! Try them in the diffuser together or on their own to fill your house with all the fall spicy yumminess, with the added benefits of all the immune supporting properties. What’s so great about these oils?!

Clove oil has a spicy, warm scent that’s instantly familiar because of its connection to fall and winter holidays. To produce Clove essential oil, the flower bud and plant stem are steam distilled, and the rich, strong oil that results from this process contains eugenol. This powerful constituent makes it a potent essential oil, and Clove oil uses include topical applications such as massage oils and personal care products.

Nutmeg has a warm, spicy aroma that is energizing and uplifting. Nutmeg oil has many health benefits, including cognitive function support, immune support, and powerful antioxidants.
Warm and comforting, Cinnamon Bark essential oil’s familiar aroma comes from the naturally occurring constituent cinnamaldehyde. 

Cinnamon Bark oil is a key part of our proprietary, top-selling Thieves essential oil blend, combining with Clove essential oil to give Thieves its signature spicy aroma. During autumn and the holiday season, there’s no smell like Cinnamon Bark to evoke memories of fall and holiday celebrations. Diffuse Cinnamon Bark in your kitchen and living room to create a warm, comforting, and inviting environment for your family and guests. For a festive twist, diffuse Cinnamon Bark with Frankincense, Orange, Tangerine, Clove, or Nutmeg.

Use a carrier oil to apply these oils topically as they are considered “hot” oils and may be sensitive to the skin. All of these oils smell amazing and have so many beneficial properties. Also, be sure to try their vitality oil counterparts for even more amazing ways to use these oils!!
Have you tried any of these oils before?! Trust me, you’ll want them all in your oil collection!


Let’s talk the amazingness of this oil and all the glory that is respiratory support!

Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil comes from an evergreen tree native to Australia that is part of the Myrtaceae plant family. Steam distilled from the leaves, Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil is loved for its fresh, sharply clean aroma. 

Diffuse Eucalyptus Radiata oil to promote a stimulating and rejuvenating environment. There are many other Eucalyptus Radiata uses loved by members, including using it in invigorating massage after activity.

Love this oil in the diffuser on its own, or mixed with some of my favorite fall scents! It’s also great to use topically on the chest for respiratory support, or even by putting 3-5 drops on the floor of the shower before taking a hot shower—a relaxing way to enjoy its benefits!

What do you love about eucalyptus radiata?!


Speaking of respiratory support…

This is a FAVORITE in our household!

With a refreshing and rejuvenating aroma, the YoungLiving Breathe Again Roll-On is the perfect companion for early mornings, long days, and tough workouts. Our proprietary Breathe Again essential oil combines oils such as Peppermint, Myrtle, and Copaiba with four different types of eucalyptus—including Eucalyptus Blue grown on Young Living’s Ecuador farm—to create a powerful, invigorating experience.

This rejuvenating blend, which includes the naturally occurring constituent eucalyptol, comes in a convenient roll-on applicator, so you can easily use it anytime, anywhere. Keep it in your car, purse, pocket, or bag and simply apply it as needed under your nose or on your head, neck, or chest to awaken and invigorate your senses.

Literally use this all the time because it smells so amazing!! Such a great oil to have on hand and to use as part of your wellness routine! I stock up on this one every summer just to make sure we are never without it!


RC Essential Oil specifically supports and soothes especially when placed on the bottom of feet or over chest. Make a hot compress to provide more comfort on the chest during the winter months. 

This blend of oils includes three different types of eucalyptus, as well as other oils such as peppermint, cypress, and myrtle for added immune and respiratory support!
Such a great oil to have on hand. And BONUS—it comes in the starter kit!


Love these oils so much! These were two that I had sitting in my oil collection for so long and wasn’t sure what to do with. But then I tried them and added them to my wellness routine, and now I can’t imagine ever being without them!!

Raven is a cleansing blend of Ravintsara, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Radiata, and other essential oils. Raven creates a cooling sensation when applied topically to the chest and throat. Put a few drops in your bath water or on your pillow before you go to sleep. Sleep well and breathe well!

While Raven is a blend of oils, Ravintsara is actually a single oil made from a large evergreen tree by the same name that is grown in Madagascar. 

Helps to clear brain fog and strengthens motivation. Supports skin clarification. Enhances the appearance of healthy-looking skin. Ravintsara is also part of many other wellness
blends, including Raven and Immupower.

Have you tried either of these oils before?! Though their names may be (somewhat) similar, they are both so different and both so lovely in so many ways!


We have to talk about the amazing Kidscents oils as we talk about all these amazing different ways to support our immune system! The Kidscents line of oils were specifically formulated to support our kiddos’ immune systems. They contain many of the same immune supporting oils that we have already talked about, but are also pre-diluted and ready to go for their little bodies and immune systems!

Let’s take a quick look at each of them!
+ GeneYus is an excellent blend to diffuse for young minds that are focusing and concentrating on projects. Great to use in the classroom or for any task that requires some extra focus.
+ SniffleEase is a rejuvenating and refreshing blend formulated just for kids. A great way to support their respiratory systems!!
+ Apply Owie topically to improve the appearance of your child’s skin. PS us adults really love this one too (we love them all!). It smells so great and we use it too!
+ Diffuse SleepyIze at bedtime for a peaceful aromatic environment. Y’all, it is magical. It has changed bedtimes forever!
+ TummyGize is a relaxing, quieting blend that can be applied to little tummies.

Love having these oils on hand ready to go to support my kiddos and to help keep them above that wellness line!

Have you tried any of the kidscents oils yet?!
(PS—there is also a whole line of lotion, shampoo, and toothpaste as well, just for your kids!!)


This is a supplement we make sure to always have on hand! Can’t imagine life without it!

Young Living's Inner Defense reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support. The liquid softgels dissolve quickly for maximum results.

Take a capsule 1-3 times per day as needed! Love to take a few of these if I ever feel like I’m in need of some extra immune support.

Andddd you can even get it for FREE this month in the September 2017 promo!!


We’ve already talked about the wonder that is Thieves essential oil—now let’s talk about the whole line of Thieves cleaning products. Did you know that YoungLiving has a chemical free line of cleaning products?! Everything from household cleaner to dish soap to laundry detergent to dishwasher soap to hand soap. And although it isn’t necessarily a cleaning product, I have to give a shout out to the Thieves waterless hand purifier as well!

While bacteria can be dangerous, some industrial cleaners on the market pose an even larger threat to your health. The Thieves cleaning line can be used in every room in your home, without the harsh chemicals. Everything cleans so well, plus you get the added benefit of all the immune support properties of Thieves essential oil!

Here’s a breakdown of some of the cleaning products:

+Thieves Laundry Soap:
Thieves Laundry Soap is plant-based and is as pure and natural as a detergent is going to get—plus it contains the most powerful essential oils on the planet that not only make it smell amazing, but really help to get things clean. I mean, I use Thieves for cleaning literally everything in my house, and now they’ve made the best detergent I’ve ever tried out of the stuff.

The little compact bottle does 64 loads of laundry, instead of your typical 32. It’s 6x concentrated, so a little goes a long way. I love that it’s not so cumbersome like those giant jugs of detergent, and doesn’t take up a ton of space in your laundry room. And IT. WORKS. Stains come out, whites don’t get dingy, dirty little toddler clothes actually come out CLEAN. I can’t believe how well it works with only needing to use such a small amount.

+ Thieves Household Cleaner
Our favorite and most amazing all-in- one, clean, non-toxic cleaner. This one bottle will clean everything from your toilets to your car, your toys to your floors. And it's highly
concentrated, only needing one ounce for an entire spray bottle of water so it will last you forever!

+ Thieves Foaming hand soap - yep, you guessed it...I have this at every single sink in my home. It smells amazing, cleans amazing and its safe for those precious little hands its washing!

+ Thieves Fruit + Veggie Spray

Wash that produce and feel confident that you're only getting the nutrients, NOT the bugs, dirt, or chemicals that might be on the outside! Plus, it doesn't add any weird flavor or aftertaste to your delicious fruits.

+ Thieves Dish Soap - guess what it says on the bottle? "If swallowed, drink plenty of water..." - um yes please! Safe, good product AND....it cleans amazing and may or may not smell like Christmas.

Have you ditched the chemicals and made the switch to Thieves cleaning products?!
What’s your favorite?! (I mean, can you really pick?!)
