Two years ago my husband bought me a diffuser and oils from Amazon for my birthday. I didn’t know anything about them at the time but I knew I wanted to get into using oils because I’d heard the benefits were significant. After a few months of using these oils and seeing zero results or change, I packed them into a box and thought I’d likely never touch oils again because they were just a fad.
Over the last two years my girls have been in Mother’s Morning Out programs a few days a week in the school year and every school year they were constantly sick. It was awful and no matter how much I tried to prevent it, it seemed inevitable. Two days into the new school year this year, both kids came home with terrible colds and instantly I wanted to make a change. After doing some research on more natural ways of getting better from a cold instead of over the counter medicines and also trying to prevent a common cold from happening in the future, everything kept turning me back to using essential oils. And more specifically than that, the Young Living brand kept popping up. I ordered a premium starter kit to try it out and see what the hype was about. It was the best decision I’ve ever made for our family.
Since we’ve started using them regularly, the girls have not been sick, the air in our house smells so much better and the cleaner we use for everything is chemical free. There are finally no toxins lingering, I don’t have to worry about Amelia wandering underneath the kitchen sink and getting scared she might ingest something that could put her in the hospital if not worse. I wanted to share how we are using essential oils and the other natural products in our home today.
How We Use Essential Oils Today
Since I’ve been introduced to essential oils, I’ve been using them daily and couldn’t imagine our lives without them now. We have one diffuser in our living space and one diffuser in each of the girls rooms.
Throughout the day I also diffuse oils in our living area. Some of my favorite blends are:
Thieves & Citrus Fresh
Peppermint & Lemon
Stress Away & Citrus Fresh
Frankincense, Thieves & Lemon
In the mornings before we get our day started, I like to use a roller bottle that has Thieves in it to keep their immune system supported. I roll it down their spines, on the bottom of their feet, behind their ears and on the back of their neck.
After we run errands, go play or I pick them up from school, we use the Thieves hand sanitizer to get all the germs off from being out and about too. It’s infused with peppermint oil and smells so dreamy plus is completely safe.
We diffuse lavender in the girls bedrooms every night about a half hour before they go to bed for a more calming atmosphere. They each have a roller bottle that they use on the bottoms of their feet before they go to bed too.
One of the first products I bought before I even bought the oils was the Thieves household cleaner and laundry soap. The Thieves cleaner is gold. If you’re going to get anything from Young Living, I 100% recommend the household cleaner because it will replace every single cleaner you’ve ever owned and can be used on every single surface you can think of. Wood, glass, granite, porcelain, you name it. It does so much and it a concentrate so when you mix it with water, the bottle will go such a long ways. Plus it gets out any laundry stain!
How To Get Your Own Oils
If this sounds like something that peaks your interest there really is no better time than today to get started on your journey into wellness, especially with the holidays approaching! You can sign up with Young Living and the best way to do this is buy starting with a premium starter kit and you will be enrolled as a member! This will get you a lifetime of wholesale prices (24% off everything) and you DO NOT HAVE TO SELL OILS OR PURCHASE MONTHLY ORDERS AS A MEMBER. By becoming a member you will get 50% off the starter kit too and it’s honestly the best option if you want to get enrolled! To sign up/order, click here and make sure the number 16680040 appears in the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields. Choose “MEMBER” and you’re ready to go! You’ll be able to select what starter kit you want (they have the makeup starter kit and the Thieves cleaner starter kits to choose from too!) and get to pick which diffuser you’d like included and then add anything else – I would recommend the Thieves laundry soap and Thieves household cleaner! The starter kit comes with 10 essential oils plus one bonus oil, a huge packet on how you can use all your new oils and a few other goodies in there!
Honestly I’m still learning and don’t know a whole ton about the oils but I know they’re working for our family! There’s never any pressure to sell but if you have friends or family that are interested in buying them, it may be worth a shot! We can learn together 🙂
