Essential Oil Uses

Over the past two years I have found myself learning more and more about essential oils.  I’m frugal by nature so brand names of any product tend to scare me away right off the bat but after learning about how different they really are, I am in love with Young Living Essential Oils!

I tend to use natural products to clean my house only because I can’t stand the overwhelming chemical makeup of some of the cleaning supplies on the market.  We grew up cleaning with baking soda, vinegar, water and essential oils.  I’ve even made a homemade version of Poopourri and I call it our DIY Poo Poo Spray.  We also started adding them to our sugar scrub recipes too!  What a difference!  I started off using cheaper versions of essential oils I would find on sale on Amazon. I thought they worked great until I was challenged by a friend to try my same recipe with Young Living’s Essential Oils.  Whoa!  I was blown away at the difference.  You can immediately tell a difference in the smell, velocity and the color.  The Young Living Essential oils are heavenly to smell but also thick and vibrant in color.  I would not have known this if I wasn’t challenged to try this out.  I have experienced a major difference in essential oils.

Here are a few of my favorite oils that I usually have on hand at all times and their uses:

  • Peppermint Essential Oil – headaches, fever, congestion, nausea
  • Lavender Essential Oil – minor burns, skin irritations, rashes/hives, bruises and even sunburn relief
  • Lemon Essential Oil – a powerful antioxidant that improves skin, supports the nervous system, cleans toxins in the body, plus I use it in almost all of my homemade cleaning products
  • Thieves Essential Oil Blend – Colds/flu season, sore throat, headaches, toothaches
  • Stress Away Blend – eases tension and distress, restores equilibrium, promotes relaxation, maintains healthy blood pressure – This blend comes in a Roll-On too!  You can get the Stress Away Roll-On here.  I carry it with my always!

You will often find me diffusing my favorite oils too!

I am also learning all of ways it can save me time and money at the doctor’s offices too.  Young Living Essential Oils are Therapeutic Grade.

What does Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils mean?

In my research of essential oils I noticed two major distinctions.  There was aromatherapy grade or therapeutic grade.  I learned there are some you can digest and some that is not safe for consumption.  I’ve learned to steer clear of the ones that are not fit for consumption.

The potential danger of an essential oil is generally relative to its level or grade of purity. Many essential oils are designed exclusively for their aroma-therapeutic quality; these essential oils generally should not be applied directly to the skin in their undiluted or “neat” form. Some can cause severe irritation, provoke an allergic reaction and, over time, prove hepatotoxic. Non-therapeutic grade essential oils are never recommended for topical or internal use.  (Source)

Why Young Living Essential Oils?

Young Living has a seed to seal production process!  This statement comes directly from the Young Living About Page:

Through the painstaking steps of our proprietary Seed to Seal production process, we produce the best, most authentic essential oils in the world. We are committed to providing pure, powerful products for every family and lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of our essential oils.

Young Living is in charge of every single process from beginning to end.  This company guarantees to be free of residual herbicides, pesticides & chemicals.  They test their own oil composition.  They don’t have 3rd party vendors involved in the process which leads to unknown results.

I found that Young Living was the only company directly in charge of the essential oil farming operations from beginning to end.   They don’t have 3rd party oil brokers as most other companies have.  This really boils down to a trust issue.  I am trusting one company for it’s process instead of many different companies involved in the same process.

You might say I have a new Essential Oil addiction and it’s good for me!  I also love the fact that I could get these high quality essential oils at a member discount (24%) and not have to sell anything to anyone if I didn’t want to.


The Best Place to Buy Essential Oils

Young Living Essential Oils

Just fill out this form to get started:

1.  Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.

2.  Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices.

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2508874

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get. To get the freebies, you’ll need to check the box next to the Premium Starter Kit.  You can get the kit that’s $160 or you can get the kit that’s $160 with the Bamboo Diffuser.

6. I’d recommend skipping the Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. You’ll get an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs).

7. Go through the checkout process.

8. Be sure to send an email to to let me know that you signed up through this promotion so that I can send you your freebies!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does signing up make me a “distributor”?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?

There are absolutely no minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program called Essential Rewards where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly, but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member.

Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?

It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it?

I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.

Young Living is the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.

Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.

With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.
It’s a trust step either way since anyone could be lying, but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. Anyone can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with other companies.

How will I know which oils to use for what?

One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils!

The reference guide that we are giving away as part of this promotion is also a HUGE resource. You can look up almost anything in it and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.

Does Young Living only sell essential oils?

Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.
