Get to Know Your Premium Starter Kit

If you are brand new to essential oils, THIS IS THE PERFECT POST FOR YOU! Below is a bunch of how-to information on using the essential oils in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit (this kit is the best way to begin using essential oils) as well as a few related oily tidbits. Learn one day at a time for the next 14 days or all at once. Happy learning! :)

14 Day Challenge Overview

Young Living recently released a new line of essential oils called Vitality. Each of the 27 Vitality oils are specifically branded and labeled for dietary use (internal consumption). Technically speaking, the Vitality oils are no different from their regular counter part. For example, Lemon and Lemon Vitality is the exact same oil. The difference, however, is that a regular bottle of Lemon now includes topical and aromatic usage directions, while a bottle of Lemon Vitality includes dietary supplement usage directions. Same oil, three different ways to use it!

Young Living Labels

The Premium Starter Kit comes with your choice of diffuser and 11 bottles of essential oil. Six of the essential oils (Frankincense, RC, Purification, Lavender, PanAway, and Stress Away) are labeled for topical/aromatic use, while the other five (Peppermint, Lemon, Copaiba, Thieves, and DiGize) are the Vitality essential oils and are labeled for dietary use. *Remember that other than their label, the Vitality essential oils are the exact same oil as their regular counter part. The Premium Starter Kit showcases both regular and Vitality essential oils to show you the versatility of Young Living essential oils! :)

When you purchase a Young Living Premium Starter Kit, you become a no strings attached Wholesale Member (you will save 24% every time you order from Young Living). You DO NOT have to order product regularly, but let’s be honest… The oily lifestyle rocks and you may just want to order oils regularly and/or start replacing your household/body care products with Young Living’s safe and all-natural alternatives. When this happens, you’ll want to consider signing up for Essential Rewards (ER). If you are ordering at least $50 worth of products a month (or averaging that over a few months) and aren’t on ER, you are missing out on earning FREE PRODUCT! :) Below is a brief overview of ER. You can also also watch THIS VIDEO to learn more.

Essential Rewards

If you have questions about the dangers associated with some of the store-bought products you may be using and why you may want to consider switching to Young Living’s all-natural home/body care products and nutritional supplements, please don’t hesitate to ask me! Additionally, while Wholesale Members are NEVER required to “sell” (or refer others) to Young Living, if you would like to join me in the oily lifestyle and learn more about this opportunity, be sure to let me know so I can support you on this journey!

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.

Slide07[1]

First and foremost, Young Living is a wellness company. We are committed to helping you live your healthiest life! True wellness starts from within, and Young Living offers an extensive array of essential oils and nutrition products to support wellness. In order to help you live a toxin-free lifestyle, Young Living offers personal care and household products to ensure that you and your family can benefit from naturally derived products for every part of your day. Click HERE to check out the USA 2015 Young Living Product Guide.

Slide08[1]

Slide09[1]

By living the Young Living lifestyle, every aspect of your daily life can be enhanced and benefit from essential oils and essential oil-infused products. Click HERE to check out the USA 2015 Young Living Product Guide.

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!

Slide20[1]

So how can you get started? Well, one of the best ways is with the Premium Starter Kit. In this kit, you receive 11 bottles of our most popular essential oils, a diffuser, samples, info, and a 24% wholesale discount every time you sign in at www.youngliving.com to order (you are never required to sell or order regularly)! Let’s check out the 11 oils in the Premium Starter Kit!

A List of Young Living Essential Oils Classes Offered Throughout the United States

Young Living Essential Oils Class

When I began puchasing Young Living essential oils, I did so from a blog like mine. I never attended a Young Living essential oils class and I never met my “upline” before beginning my essential oils journey. Although I was comfortable with that (and most of my current members have also purchased Young Living essential oils from me this same way), I know there are still many people out there who want to meet someone in person and/or attend a live class first.

Young Living is offering several live essential oils classes throughout the United States! Click HERE to view the locations, dates, times, and curriculum for each class.

For those of you who want to attend a live essential oils class, I have such an amazing opportunity for you! Young Living is offering SEVERAL essential oils classes throughout the United States. The best part is that many of them that are being offered this spring are right here in my neck of the woods…in Wisconsin (although there are still many in other states)! I am so excited about this!! Some of these are introduction classes while others offer more in depth essential oils training. I will most certainly be attending some of the classes (because I love learning) so if you’ll be there, let me know! :)

You can attend these classes and still purchase essential oils from the Young Living distributor of your choosing!

You can attend these classes and still purchase essential oils from the Young Living distributor of your choosing. Therefore, feel free to attend one of these classes and come right back HERE to purchase your oils. When you purchase the Premium Starter Kit and use me as your referral source, I will send you a free 400+ page reference guide and 2 colorful roller bottles (the rollers are while my supplies last). Plus, all of my Wholesale Members gain exclusive access to our Oil Moxie website and Facebook community!

If you are allowed to purchase Young Living essential oils right at a class, feel free to do so by using my Enroller and Sponsor ID # 1583415 (that’s how you get the free gifts and access to Oil Moxie with your Premium Starter Kit purchase). I would love to have you join me on this journey!

Personalized canvas tote bag – mine is monogrammed with “Oil Moxie,” our free essential oil club (it’s the perfect oiling conversation starter)!

Monogrammed Tote Bag

Tote bags make great everyday bags, weekend bags, or beach bags! I just love a good tote bag because they hold everything I think I need at all times…including my essential oils (which stay put in their own travel pouch as noted above)! Not only are these types of bags super useful and durable, but they also make a wonderful personalized gift. These tote bags are normally monogrammed with a name or initials, but I decided to monograph one with our essential oiling club – “Oil Moxie.” :) I love being part of our free essential oiling community and as Young Living distributor, an “Oil Moxie” tote bag makes a great conversation piece. This bag is 14 inches high, 25 inches wide, and 9 inches deep. It is made from 100% canvas, is water-resistant, has a large main compartment with a zipper closure, a key fob attached, and a front pocket. Oh yeah…and you can choose from a variety of colors and fonts! You can get your own personalized tote bag from fourbugsinarug (a shop on Etsy).

Fun metal essential oil roller bottles – for easy oil on-the-go oil application!

EO Roller Bottles

Essential oil roller bottles are a must have for any oil user. Roller bottles are a great way to make your own essential oil blends or pre-dilute your essential oils for super quick and easy oil application. Carry it with you in your purse or backpack and simply roll it right on the area you wish to experience some relief from. Oil application doesn’t get any easier than this! And don’t you just love the fun stylish design of these bottles?! Plus, I love that the roller ball is metal versus many others on the market which are plastic. You can buy your own fun and classy looking metal essential oil roller bottle from EssentialOilCafe (a shop on Etsy).

Hard sided aluminum essential oil carrying case (with optional add-on keychain case) – safely and easily organize, store, and move all your oils from place to place!

Hard Sided Aluminum Essential Oil Case with Keychain

In some situations, you might want to tuck your essential oils away in one safe place. Maybe you have kids and you need to keep your oils up and out of their reach (a case like this is easy to move to and take off of a shelf). Or, you might travel a lot with your family (think summer weekend camping trips) and want to easily take your whole arsenal of essential oils with you. This hard sided essential oil case makes it super easy to safely store your essential oils and move them around from place to place. This aluminum case is 7 x 10 inches and has a foam insert that holds 32 (15 ml) and 8 (5 ml) bottles of essential oil. One side is textured and one smooth for stickers or embellishments. To keep your kiddos and oils extra safe, this case locks and includes 2 keys. For an additional charge, this case can be personalized in the inside with your choice of fabric and thread for a monograph. You also have the option to add a cute little essential oil key chain (which includes the little bottles) onto your order. This handy aluminum essential oil case is available from ArmedNotDangerous (a shop on Etsy). Save 30% by using coupon code XMAS14 at checkout.

Hot or cold neck and shoulder rice wrap – it will intensify the effectiveness of your essential oil application!

Hot and Cold Rice Essential Oil Pad

Hot and cold rice packs and wraps (which you store in the freezer or heat up in the microwave) are pretty common on Etsy. However, this neck and shoulder rice wrap is unique and unlike most others that I have seen. I really like the design of this wrap because it will stay put and provide relief even if you move around a little bit. You can also lay this flat for use on the lower back or other muscles. Massaging an essential oil to the occasional sore neck and shoulders is already quite effective. If you add a heat wrap like this one, you can intensify the effectiveness and really loosen up those muscles. This is definitely worth the money! You can purchase this one of a kind hot and cold rice wrap from BlueBellBoutiqueTN (a store on Etsy) – other colors and patterns available.

Help! I Got Essential Oil In My Eye!

Today when I was getting ready, I grabbed the Young Living Frankincense essential oil bottle because I wanted to apply some to my face (because Frankincense oil is good for your skin and complexion). Good idea? Yes! However, my not so brilliant idea was to take the bottle and drop the Frankincense oil directly on my forehead (versus putting a drop or two on my finger tips and then rubbing that on my face). As you can probably guess, it dripped down my forehead and I got essential oil in my eye! And yes, it stung! However, I want you to know that panicking isn’t necessary. I simply took a little carrier oil (like Young Living’s V-6 oil or olive oil) and massaged some of that around and in my eye. All better! No blindness, no blurry vision, no redness, no puffiness, and no more discomfort. :) For more detail, it’s all explained in the short video below.

What Are Essential Oils?

Understanding Essential Oils

ESSENTIAL OILS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS!

Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts show that essential oils have been used for thousands of years. There are a total of 188 references to essential oils in the Bible. Frankincense, Myrrh, Rosemary, Hyssop, and Spikenard were used in the Bible for anointing and healing the sick. The Wise Men even presented the Christ child with gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh. As a kid I remember learning that Jesus received gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh, but it wasn’t until I started using essential oils that I finally understood what that meant. Back in the day, these things were regarded as highly as gold was! :)

ESSENTIAL OILS ARE AROMATIC LIQUIDS THAT ARE DISTILLED FROM PLANTS!

A plant contains essential oils as part of its immune system (and it uses its oils to stay healthy). Essential oils are highly concentrated, aromatic liquids that are distilled from plants (common distillation techniques are illustrated below) and can include its seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, fruit, flowers, etc. For example, Frankincense oil comes from the resin, Lemon oil comes from the rind (peel of the fruit), Lavender oil comes from the flowers, Peppermint oil comes from the leaves, stems, and flower buds, Cypress oil comes from the branches, and Cinnamon oil comes from the bark.

Essential Oil Distillation

When plants are carefully grown and harvested, and the oil is carefully distilled from the plant, essential oils can provide powerful therapeutic benefits. The chemistry of an essential oil is very complex. As a result, each essential oil contains SEVERAL health promoting properties (with more uses constantly being discovered). The graphic below illustrates the constituents of Lavender essential oil.

Lavender Chemical Compounds

THE FREQUENCY OF AN ESSENTIAL OIL IS WHAT MAKES IT SO POWERFUL!

Frequency is a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between two points. EVERYTHING has an electrical frequency. The higher the frequency of our body, the better we can promote health and wellness. Essential oils possess a high frequency and can be used to increase the frequency of our body, thereby supporting our health.

YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS CAN BE USED AROMATICALLY, TOPICALLY, AND SOME CAN BE TAKEN INTERNALLY!

Inhaling essential oils affects the limbic system of the brain. Because the limbic system is directly connected to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can support the body and the mind. The graphic below illustrates how to use essential oils aromatically.

How to Use Essential Oils Aromatically

The skin is the largest organ of the body. When applied topically, essential oils are quickly absorbed, enter the blood stream, and can support the body and the mind. The graphic below illustrates how to use essential oils topically.

How to Use Essential Oils Topically

Some essential oils make excellent dietary supplements or food flavorings. When taken internally, essential oils can support the body. The label on each bottle of Young Living essential oil will tell you whether it is intended to be used as a dietary supplement. The graphic below illustrates how to use essential oils internally.

WHY YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS?

The therapeutic value of an essential oil is affected by the soil condition, fertilizer used, geographical region, climate, altitude, harvest season and methods, and the techniques used in the distillation process. Young Living carefully controls all of these things so that their essential oils can be used for therapeutic purposes. Young Living owns several of its own farms, has co-ops and partnerships with farms, and works with vendors. Young Living has very strict standards on these farms, with these vendors, and throughout the distillation and bottling stage of their essential oils. Young Living calls this their Seed to Seal process and as a result, refers to their oils as pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. You can learn more about Young Living’s Seed to Seal process by clicking HERE.

Young Living Seed to Seal

There are many essential oils on the market today. However, not all of them are safe or effective for therapeutic purposes. Low quality oils don’t offer any health benefits to us. In fact, using a low quality oil for therapeutic purposes is never recommended and can actually be toxic. There are no standards for essential oils. A label of “100% pure” or “all natural” does not guarantee a high quality essential oil. Even Young Living’s “pure, therapeutic grade” essential oil label is not regulated. Therefore, if you want to use your oils for therapeutic purposes, you need to ask yourself if you trust the company you purchase your essential oils from. Young Living created the label of “pure, therapeutic grade” as their stamp of approval – to tell you that their essential oils can most definitely be used to support, maintain, and affect overall health and wellness. I trust Young Living’s Seed to Seal process, which is why I choose to use Young Living essential oils! :)

WHICH ESSENTIAL OILS SHOULD YOU START WITH?

There are hundreds of different essential oils, but you don’t need that many essential oils to reap their benefits. An essential oil collection of 10-15 oils is really all you need to assist in supporting, affecting, and maintaining overall health and wellness. The Young Living Premium Starter Kit is the best way to get started in the oiling world! The graphic below illustrates all of the oils in that kit.
