Learning How to Use Essential Oils Does Not Have to be Overwhelming

Learning How to Use Essential Oils Does Not Have to be Overwhelming

It seems like for as many people who use essential oils, there are just as many people who are overwhelmed by them. Despite how overwhelmed you may feel when it comes to using essential oils, I’m here to tell you that you no longer have to feel this way! If you read below, I think you’ll find my super simple oily rundown helpful. After all…life is busy and essential oils should make your life better, NOT more complicated! :) Here are the things you NEED to know when it comes to using your oils…

*Note: These tips are meant for healthy adults (there are different guidelines for children). If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or have a medical condition, please speak with your healthcare provider and check a reference guide before using essential oils. 

# 1) Young Living essential oils can be used in three ways: aromatically, topically, or taken as a dietary supplement.

  • To use an essential oil aromatically: Inhale directly from the bottle; add a drop to the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, cup your hands over your nose and mouth, and inhale; add a few drops to a cotton ball and place near you; or diffuse (add 3-8 drops to a diffuser).
  • To use an essential oil topically: Apply 1-3 drops to the desired area of the skin (never in the eyes or ears). The wrists, back of the neck, and/or bottom of the feet are always great places to apply essential oils. Most essential oils need to be diluted with a carrier oil (ex: V-6 or olive oil) before applying them to the skin.
  • To take an essential oil as a dietary supplement: Add 1-2 drops to a capsule, herbal tea, water, juice, honey, or yogurt. Be sure to use a glass (not plastic) cup when adding essential oils to a beverage.

# 2) Each bottle of essential oil has a label on it. The label will tell you how to use that oil.

  • For example, the label on the bottle of RC reads, “Topical: Dilute 1 drop with 1 drop of V-6 or olive oil and apply to desired area. Aromatic: Diffuse up to 30 minutes 3 times daily.”
    • If you don’t know where to apply the oil,  apply it to the wrists, back of the neck, and/or bottom of the feet as stated above in # 1.
    • If you don’t have a diffuser, use the oil aromatically in any of the ways listed above in # 1.
  • For example, the label on the bottle of Peppermint reads, “Dietary: Take 2 drops in a capsule. Take 3 times daily or as needed.”
    • If you don’t have capsules, you can take an oil as a supplement in any of the ways listed above in # 1.

# 3) Despite what you may think, you DO NOT need to know how a particular oil benefits you before you use it!

People tend to think that they need to know how a particular essential oil will benefit them before they use it. Although, it’s nice to know details about each oil, all you really need to know is that you will always benefit when you use an essential oil! The most important thing is not always knowing how a particular oil will benefit you. Rather, the most important thing is that you use them!

# 4) What to do when you get your Premium Starter Kit:

The Premium Starter kit is a very versatile and well-rounded essential oil collection. Therefore, you can benefit from doing the following with your kit…

  1. Open all of the bottles in the Premium Starter Kit and smell them.
  2. Pick the oil that you are drawn to in that moment.
  3. Use that oil by following the directions on the bottle.
  4. Use at least one oil every morning and at least one oil every night.
  5. Be sure to eventually work your way through each of the 11 oils in the Premium Starter Kit. Try using all of the oils even if you don’t like how they smell at first – they will grow on you. Sometimes, the oil that smells the worst, is the one you need the most.
  6. As you use the oils and as you have the time, learn more about each oil by reading the info that came with your kit, visiting: www.youngliving.com, browsing the Young Living Product Guide, and/or reading a reference guide.
  7. Over time, you’ll come to find which oils you really like and which ones seem to benefit you the most!

Think the Premium Starter Kit is too expensive? Check out this cost breakdown!

Think the Premium Starter Kit is too expensive? Check out this cost breakdown!

The Young Living Premium Starter Kit is on sale for $150.00 until the end of the month. This kit comes with 11 (5-ml) bottles of essential oil, a diffuser, 10 sample packets of essential oil, 10 share it sample essential oil bottles/info, an aroma glide roller ball fitment, 2 NingXia Red sample packets, and a no strings attached 24% wholesale discount whenever you want to order from www.youngliving.com (not to mention all the freebies you get when you order from me). If you think that the Young Living Premium Starter Kit is too expensive, let me show you that it’s not! :)

Each 5-ml bottle of essential oil from the Premium Starter Kit contains about 80 drops of oil. When you ingest or apply oils to the skin, just 1-3 drops is usually used. This means that…

  • Using 1 drop = about 80 servings/applications per 5-ml bottle
  • Using 2 drops = about 40 servings/applications per 5-ml bottle
  • Using 3 drops  = about 25 servings/applications per 5-ml  bottle

Here is a generalized cost analysis for each oil in the Premium Starter Kit (using 1 drop of oil):

  1. Thieves: Help maintain a healthy respiratory system and support the immune system for $0.14
  2. Lemon: Naturally enhance the flavor of food and beverages for $0.05
  3. Peppermint: support gastrointestinal system comfort and support performance during exercise for $0.09
  4. Lavender: Promote a restful nights sleep for $0.09
  5. Frankincense: Smooth the appearance of healthy looking skin for $0.29
  6. DiGize: Support a daily wellness regimen after a meal or while traveling for $0.13
  7. Stress Away: Combat normal stress that creeps into everyday life for $0.12
  8. RC: Comfort and soothe the throat and chest after exercise or just before bedtime for $0.13
  9. PanAway: Soothe minor tension and muscles after exercise for $0.32 (calculated using the 15-ml price)
  10. Purification: Moisturize the skin and enjoy the outdoors annoyance free for $0.08
  11. Copaiba: Support overall wellness and the body’s natural response to injury and irritation for $0.17

Now, think about this…

The average cost per drop of essential oil in the Premium Starter Kit is just 15 cents. When you see 15 cents on the sidewalk, do you even pause to pick it up? Do you even bother clipping coupons for cents off an item? If your answer is no, then why would spending an average of 15 cents to naturally support your health be too expensive? :)

Think you can find a cheaper diffuser? You can’t! Check out these numbers:

When you subtract the cost of everything in the Premium Starter Kit from the current kit sale price of $150.00, the diffuser costs NEGATIVE $6.22! Seriously! The diffuser that comes in the Premium Starter Kit is MORE THAN 100% FREE! You can’t beat that! Even when the kit is at the regular price of $160.00 (after 8/31/15), the diffuser is still a crazy good deal at just $3.78!

*I calculated this using the 15-ml price of PanAway. If you calculate this using the 5-ml price of PanAway, then the diffuser comes to negative $14.97 (while currently on sale).

Now, let’s compare freshening a room with essential oils to burning a candle…

One of my favorite essential oils to diffuse from the Premium Starter Kit is Purification. I use about 5 drops of essential oil  when I run my diffuser. The Home Diffuser from the Premium Starter Kit has a run time of up to 5 hours (mine runs even longer if I have it on the 30 second intermittent setting, however, for this example, we’ll use 5 hours). This means that…

  • Diffusing Purification costs 8 cents per hour – cheapest way to freshen your home!
  • Bath and Body Works 3 Wick Candle priced 50 percent off, costs 23-45 cents per hour – more expensive than oils!
  • Yankee Jar Candle priced 50 percent off, costs 9-12 cents per hour – more expensive than oils!
  • Plus, diffusing essential oils offers health benefits, while burning a candle does not!

Lastly, let’s take a look at diffusing oils versus air fresheners!

Don’t even get me started on air fresheners! Oh boy! Most air fresheners are so incredibly toxic (I’m embarrassed to say that I used to have a stock pile of them). Don’t believe me? Just look at what the Environmental Working Group has to say about them HERE. I don’t even have to do a price comparison. Just don’t use air fresheners. Enough said. :)

Young Living Diffuser Reviews

Young Living Diffuser Review and Differences Between the Young Living Diffusers

Click the graphic for a slightly different, yet clearer side by side comparison.

Diffusing essential oils is one of the best ways to experience the aromatic benefits of essential oils. The Young Living Premium Starter Kit comes with 11 bottles of essential oil AND A DIFFUSER! When you order your kit, you can choose from one of four diffusers – the Home, Dew Drop, Bamboo, or Aria Diffuser. Wondering which diffuser to choose in your Premium Starter Kit? No worries – I’ve got you covered with a side by side comparison and a personal Young Living diffuser review. :)

First, let’s talk about the price:

  • The Home Diffuser and the Dew Drop Diffuser do not increase the kit’s base price of $160.00.
  • The Bamboo Diffuser is available as an upgrade for an additional $10.00 (for a total kit price of $170.00).
  • The Aria Diffuser is available as an upgrade for an additional $100.00 (for a total kit price of $260.00)

*Take $10.00 off the above listed Home, Dew Drop, and Bamboo Premium Stater Kit price until 8/14/15!!! Click HERE  for more details. 

My personal Young Living diffuser review:

I personally own the Home, Dew Drop, and Bamboo Diffuser. I do not own the Aria Diffuser (although I hope to someday because I’ve heard great things about it). While I can’t give a personal review of the Aria Diffuser, I can provide you with a personal review of the other three. You can also check out the graphic above for a side by side comparison (click that same graphic or HERE for a slightly different, yet clearer PDF of the info).

Home Diffuser Review:

Young Living Home Diffuser Review

  • The Home Diffuser takes distilled (not tap water). If you are unwilling to purchase distilled water for your diffuser, then I suggest choosing the Dew Drop Diffuser – your diffuser will work better and last much longer if you use the correct water. The light on the Home Diffuser can be left on or turned off. Additionally, the Home Diffuser can be set to run continuously or on a 30 second intermittent setting (30 seconds on, 30 seconds off, 30 seconds on, etc). The 30 second intermittent setting is my favorite feature because it really extends the time that the diffuser will run for. The Home Diffuser is adequate for an average size room. I LOVE this diffuser – I give it an A+!

Dew Drop Diffuser Review:

Young Living Dew Drop Diffuser Review

  • Unlike the Home Diffuser, the Dew Drop Diffuser takes tap water. While the Dew Drop Diffuser does not have a 30 second intermittent setting like the Home Diffuser does, the light can be left on or turned off. The Dew Drop Diffuser is a bit quieter than the Home Diffuser, making it a nice option for bedtime. The Dew Drop Diffuser is adequate for a medium size room. I LOVE this diffuser – I give it an A+!

Bamboo Diffuser Review:

Young Living Bamboo Diffuser Review

  • Like the Dew Drop Diffuser, the Bamboo Diffuser also takes tap water and is a little quieter than the Home Diffuser. The light on the Bamoboo Diffuser is much more subtle than the light on the Home or the Dew Drop Diffuser. Like the other two diffusers, the light on the Bamboo Diffuser can be left on or turned off. The Bamboo Diffuser can be set to run for 1 hour or 4 hours and is adequate for a medium size room. While the Bamboo Diffuser looks sleek, this is my least favorite diffuser (despite it being an upgrade). The Bamboo Diffuser is much more touchy than the Home or the Dew Drop Diffuser. For example, if not set on a completely level surface, the Bamboo Diffuser will not run or will shut off prematurely. Additionally, there also tends to be quite a bit of water left in the bottom of the Bamboo Diffuser after it is finished running (which always makes me feel like I’m wasting my oils – and I just hate wasting my oils). The Bamboo Diffuser is certainly effective , it’s just not my fav – I give this diffuser a B!

Aria Diffuser Review:

Young Living Aria Diffuser Review

  • As stated above, I do not own the Aria Diffuser. However, everything that I have heard about it has been extremely positive. My guess is that the Aria Diffuser deserves an A+ rating!

The Young Living diffuser that I suggest you purchase:

  • If you are just getting started on your essential oil journey, I would suggest that you select either the Home or the Dew Drop Diffuser with your Premium Starter Kit. Both of these are solid diffusers that won’t increase the base price of the Premium Starter Kit! If you have the money, then you might want to splurge for the Aria Diffuser. :)

Why Young Living Essential Oils: A Company and Product Overview

Hi there! My name is Sarah Biskobing, and I am an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. As you scroll through these graphics, you will learn about Young Living (our history, our values, and our company), as well as discover what essential oils are, how to use them, and which oils you may want to start with. You can also learn by visiting the “Oils 101″ tab of my blog. :)

Slide01[1]

No matter what your reason for joining Young Living, you can find greater wellness, purpose, and abundance. Young Living’s mission encompasses all of these aspects and signifies exactly what we are about. Young Living inspires wellness, purpose, and abundance by distilling nature’s greatest gifts into pure essential oils. With a commitment to plant purity and essential oil potency, Young Living continues to grow, inspiring millions of people to transform their lives. The principles behind our mission statement have always been the top priority for Young Living Founder, D. Gary Young. Gary won’t rest until his unique message and essential oils have been taken to every home in the world!

Slide03[1]

Imagine a life of optimal wellness, with clear purpose that adds meaning and abundance and allows you to support your family and give back to your community. Come find wellness, purpose, abundance, and the freedom to live the life you choose with Young Living!

Slide04[1]

D. Gary Young is Young Living’s Founder (Gary’s wife, Nancy Young, is Young Living’s newly appointed CEO). He grew up with humble beginnings in the rural town of Challis, Idaho, where he developed a profound appreciation for the power of nature. Having dedicated decades to traveling the world and researching the remarkable wellness benefits of these precious oils, Gary is one of the world’s foremost authorities on essential oils. Because of his experiences, Gary has never let up on his lifelong mission to share the highest quality essential oils in the world.

Gary Young’s personal experiences have made him who he is today, expanded his empathetic nature, and left him with a true commitment to helping those in need. After helping himself recover from adversity, Gary knew he could help others as well. That has been his life’s mission ever since: sharing his knowledge of and experience with essential oils and healthy living!

Slide05[1]

Young Living has grown from a tiny business into the world leader in essential oils. From Gary’s first introduction to essential oils in 1985, we have now expanded around the world, with farms, markets, shipping facilities, members, and offices across the globe. Here you will see a few examples of important points in Young Living’s history. Slide06[1]

I love this picture because it depicts Young Living’s global impact! Gary Young is passionate about our farms and is instrumental in overseeing our many global farms, where he directs the growth, harvest, and distillation processes of our high-quality essential oils. It is amazing to see that even with so much growth around the world, Young Living remains dedicated to their powerful mission that was mentioned earlier.

Slide10[1]

Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. Some people like to call essential oils “nature’s living energy” because they contain unique constituents that provide a host of benefits. Most essential oils are extracted from plant sources using steam distillation and are highly concentrated, making them far more potent than dried botanicals. Essential oils are volatile, which means that the scent of the oil rises quickly into the air. They are also versatile, with a wide variety of uses. Some people use essential oils to enliven an environment, support different body systems, or just for their great scents. However you choose to use essential oils, chances are someone else has tried that same use in the past. If you still don’t know where to start, rest assured that each essential oil is labeled with primary usage instructions. An essential oil reference guide will also guide you in the right direction.

Slide11[1]

Essential oils are nothing new! They have been used throughout history in many cultures for their health-supporting benefits. The Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Europeans, and Chinese have used them for centuries for health, beauty, fragrance, and spiritual practices. There are also many references to essential oils in historical texts, which signifies their importance in history.

Slide12[1]

There are three ways to use essential oils. You can use some oils aromatically, some topically, and some can even be taken internally.

Slide13[1]

One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is aromatically. Many of us have had a time where a smell triggers a memory—freshly baked bread, pine needles, or spring flowers can easily take you back to positive times in your life. Essential oils are the same! To use them aromatically:

  • Place 1-2 drops in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, cup your hands over your nose and mouth, and inhale deeply.
  • Diffusion is another great way to use essential oils aromatically. By creating a fine aromatic mist, diffusers allow you to create a spa-like atmosphere and enjoy the benefits of essential oils in any environment. Young Living offers a wide variety of diffusers, and when you enroll as a Wholesale Member, you will receive a diffuser in your Premium Starter Kit.

Slide14[1]

Essential oils can also be applied to the skin. This is known as topical application. Topical application is a great way to support your skin because essential oils are easy to use and provide quick benefits. Essential oils can be applied to the area of the body you want to support (never in the eyes or ears). They can also be applied to the bottom of the feet, the wrists, behind the ears, and on the back of the neck.

Slide15[1]

Some people choose to use essential oils internally by adding them to water or liquid, placing them in a capsule, or taking one of Young Living’s oil-infused products. Peppermint, for example, can help promote healthy bowel function and support overall digestion when taken internally.

Slide16[1]

Of all the companies out there, why would you choose Young Living above all the others? Well, Young Living is the world leader in essential oils! We believe that your family deserves to harvest the benefits of nature’s solutions every day, without compromise. Our commitment to purity and stewardship is embodied in a unique, proprietary process we call Seed to Seal. No other company can match what Young Living does to ensure the purity and potency of the highest quality essential oils on the market.

Slide17[1]

Young Living’s commitment to quality starts with seeds. The seeds we use are selected for their ability to become botanicals with high levels of bioactive compounds. We then grow the seeds using cultivation practices that are dedicated to responsible and sustainable growing and harvesting methods. Next, we distill using a gentle, proprietary technique for steam extracting essential oils and preserving their precious constituents. To guarantee consistent, verifiable quality, our oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs, as well as in third-party facilities. Finally, each essential oil is carefully bottled and labeled using state-of-the-art equipment.

Slide18[1]

To ensure that Young Living is able to control every step of the Seed to Seal process, we own a number of farms and partner or co-op with many others around the world. Gary Young personally travels the globe to scout farms that offer ideal conditions for growing premium botanicals. This personal, direct involvement in the growing process is what allows us to ensure that each product delivers the purity and efficacy our members around the world expect.

Slide19[1]

Seed to Seal is not only our process of operations, but it is also our promise to your family. Through each step of our production process on both our own and our partner farms, we use the most exacting standards possible to make our products, your life, and the earth better. Only one company can make the Seed to Seal promise. Only Young Living!
