18 of My Favorite Things From Young Living

18 OF MY FAVORITE THINGS FROM YOUNG LIVING

My birthday is on August 18th and I thought it would be fun to blog about 18 of my must-have things from Young Living. I love the essential oils in the Premium Starter Kit, but when you’re ready to branch out, here are some of my faves beyond the kit. Hint… Many of my faves are oil infused products from Young Living! Ready? Here we go! :)

  • #1) Pure Protein Complete
    • Pure Protein Complete is one heck of a good protein powder. It comes in two flavors: Vanilla Spice (item #3301) or Chocolate Deluxe (item #3298).  Pssst… The Chocolate Deluxe is the BOMB!!! I like to add 1 scoop to 8 ounces vanilla almond milk each morning (you’ll get 36 breakfasts per bag this way).
  • #2) Gary’s True Einkorn Grit Granola
    • This is the BEST granola you will ever eat! THE BEST!!!! You can buy just one pack (item #5751), or you can buy it as a three pack for a bit of a discount (item #19501). Just go ahead and get the three pack right away… You can thank me later! :)
  • #3) Savvy Minerals Makeup
    • Have you heard? Young Living now has their very own makeup line, Savvy Minerals!!! Savvy Minerals makeup is free of harsh-chemicals, nano particles, fillers, bismuth, talc, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, and petrochemicals! It contains pure minerals, and is made in the USA (except the brushes, which are made in Italy). There’s foundation, bronzer, blush, eyeshadow, veil, eyeliner, multitasker, misting spray, lip gloss, lipstick, and brushes (even more makeup is coming soon)! Click HERE to see a PDF color swatch of the makeup line.
  • #4) Lip Balm
    • Young Living offers three lip balms: Lavender (item # 5203), Cinnamint (item #5150), and Grapefruit (item # 5178). I often buy these for myself, but they also make great gifts! Each lip balm does a great job of protecting, repairing, and moisturizing lips.
  • #5) Thieves Household Cleaner
    • There’s a TON of ways you can use this all purpose cleaner, but the most typical way to use it is to add 1 ounce of Thieves Household Cleaner to 30 ounces of water in a spray bottle and use it clean any surface of your home (think kitchen, bathroom, floors, windows, etc). One bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner makes 14 spray bottles of ready to use cleaner (at just $1.50 each)! This stuff is safe for kids and pets, more affordable, and just as (if not more effective) than your store-bought cleaner. Plus it smells amazing! You can order a 14.4 ounce bottle of concentrate (item #3743) or a 64 ounce bottle of concentrate for a bit of a discount (item #4475).
  • #6) Deep Relief Roll-on
    • Anytime I’m experiencing tension or overworked muscles, THIS is the stuff I grab! I love Deep Relief (item #3534) because it’s super strong (which means it works) and it comes in a roll-on so you can literally just grab it out of your purse or backpack and roll it where you are experiencing occasional tension and discomfort. Get this if you don’t have it yet!!
  • #7) Satin Facial Scrub, Mint
    • This minty facial scrub is a water-based exfoliant that contains jojoba oil, mango butter, MSM, aloe, and Peppermint essential oil to minimize the appearance of pores and invigorate the skin. At just $16.25 (item# 3735), you’ll be amazed how well this works and how long this stuff lasts! My skin loves this facial scrub!!
  • #8) Orange Blossom Facial Wash
    • Orange Blossom Facial Wash (item #5136) is a gentle, non abrasive cleanser that removes dirt and makeup without stripping the skin of its natural oils. This cleanser is ultra concentrated, so I like to dilute 2 tablespoons of facial wash in an 8 ounce foaming hand soap dispenser and fill the rest of it up with water. You’ll get 4 containers of face wash for just $5.00 each! You gotta love clearer and healthier skin!
  • #9) Inner Defense
    • Inner Defense (item #3295) is a liquid softgel that supports the immune and respiratory system. Take 1 Inner Defense capsule daily in the morning or take 1 capsule 3-5 times daily when the body is stressed. You’ll definitely want this around with the school year right around the corner!
  • #10) Thieves Toothpaste
    • There are three different kinds of Thieves Toothpaste: Thieves AromaBright (my fave; item #3039 and #5351), Thieves Dentarome Plus (item #3738), and Thieves Dentarome Ultra (item #3744). Each contains no fluoride, synthetic dyes, or preservatives. Your teeth will never feel cleaner! You’ll see why this toothpaste upgrade is worth it when you discover that your regular toothpaste leaves a yucky film on your teeth that you’ll never want to go back to. Use one of these toothpastes alone, or kick it up a notch by adding a drop of Orange essential oil each time you brush your teeth. Your chompers deserve the very best!
  • #11) Ortho Sport Massage Oil
    • Ortho Sport Massage Oil (item #3032) has a warming sensation and I like to apply it to my legs after a run. We also apply a few pumps to our dog’s old hips at night – it definitely helps him feel better! Ortho Sport it is similar to Ortho Ease Massage Oil, only Ortho Sport has a higher phenol content and the warming sensation is stronger.
  • #12) Bar Soaps
    • I know what you’re thinking… “Bar Soap? Gross and No!” Seriously though, just humor me! You will be so amazed that a natural, “boring” bar soap cleans so well, leaves you smelling fresher than ever before (P.S. that freshness lasts all day), and doesn’t dry your skin out. These soaps are less expensive than a body wash from Bath & Body Works and are better for you than most store-bought body washes and soaps. There’s several to choose from, but my faves are the Thieves (item #3679) and Peppermint Cedarwood (item #3677). You’ll never go back to your store-bought body wash again!
  • #13) Life 9 Probiotic
    • Life 9 (item #18299) is a proprietary, high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains. A high quality probiotic is one of the best ways to support a healthy digestive system. Don’t forget that the digestive system is considered the second brain and therefore plays a VERY large role in our mood and immune system.
  • #14) Thieves Laundry Soap
    • With a plant-based formula, Thieves Laundry Soap (item #5349) gently and naturally washes your clothes, leaving them truly clean without any chemical and synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength, leaving your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent. Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula will handle approximately 64 loads with just 32 ounces. For $0.45 a load (in a high-efficiency washing machine), you can eliminate a top pollutant in your home and a major threat to your health and wellness.
  • #15) Thieves Spray
    • Thieves Spray is always in my purse, backpack, or office at work. I use it to spray down door handles, toilet seats, shopping cart handles, restaurant tables, the air, or anything else with a “gross factor.” I’ve even sprayed my arm pits with it when I’ve gotten a little stinky during the day LOL! This is a perfect on-the-go cleanser! You can buy one (item #3265) or a three pack (#3266).
  • #16) Thieves Dish Soap
    • I never thought dish soap was toxic (I mean, hello…. We basically ingest that stuff)! BUT it is toxic!!! Seriously, look it up on the Think Dirty app or the EWG’s cleaner database. What you’ll find is actually quite gross! Thieves Dish Soap (item # 5350) effectively cleans your dishes (yes, it has degreasing power) without SLS, dyes, SLES, formaldehyde, phosphates, or synthetic perfumes. I’ll pay more all day long for a product that won’t poison me! :)
  • #17) Master Formula
    • I started taking Master Formula (item # 5292) about 2 months ago when I was feeling like I was deficient in something, but couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was. Heck, I’m a dietitian and I didn’t even know where to begin as far as what vitamin or mineral to start taking based on how I was feeling! WOW… I feel amazing now that I’ve been taking this high quality mutivitamin and mineral supplement!! Master Formula is appropriate for males and females 12 years of age and older. It’s packed full of some serious goodness (click HERE to see the label). Did you know that all of Young Living’s supplements are infused with essential oils? Normal bioavailability of supplemental vitamins and minerals is 15-30% (this means that your body only absorbs 15-30% of that vitamin or mineral), BUT when you put essential oils with it, it increases the bioavailability to 60-80%!!!!!
  • #18) ART Light Moisturizer
    • The ART Light Moisturizer is the best moisturizer I have ever used! Seriously!! Its age refining technology is non toxic and hydrating, yet so light feeling that you hardly know you have lotion on your face! It is available separately (item #5362) or as the complete ART skincare system (item #5363).

Boom! There ya go!

What to Buy After the Young Living Premium Starter Kit – 25 Other Essential Oil Favorites

What to Buy After the Young Living Premium Starter Kit - 25 Other Essential Oil Favorites From Young Living

It’s no secret that the Young Living Premium Starter Kit is the best way to begin using essential oils. Every Young Living essential oil user loves that kit! However, after one of my members told me that she didn’t know what to buy after the Premium Starter Kit, I realized that it was time to start talking more about some of the other essential oils and oil infused products that Young Living has to offer. So, here it is…I finally put together a list of what to buy after the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. I had a VERY difficult time narrowing it down, but I was able to get it down to 25 other essential oil favorites (with some uses for each – although these uses are just the tip of the iceberg). :)

Prices shown are wholesale prices (because you get wholesale pricing on everything once you purchase the Premium Starter Kit).

Beyond the Premium Starter Kit – favorite single essential oils:

1. Orange ($10.75 for 15-ml): Orange is high in antioxidants and supports a healthy immune system for overall well-being. Orange includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene (Google that if you don’t know what that is). I like adding a drop of Orange oil to my morning smoothies. Orange is super inexpensive and is one of my favs!

2. Grapefruit ($16.75 for 15-ml): Grapefruit’s sweet, zesty scent is uplifting and revitalizing. Like Orange, Grapefruit includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene. Grapefruit was traditionally used to support a healthy immune system. You seriously can’t go wrong with any of the citrus oils!

3. Cedarwood ($11.25 for 15-ml): Cedawood essential oil includes sesquiterpenes and its powerful scent creates a relaxing, calming, and comforting atmosphere when diffused. I like to apply this oil to the bottoms of my feet to promote a restful nights sleep.

4. Copaiba ($43.00 for 15-ml): Copaiba as a rich, complex aroma. It nicely compliments other essential oils – as a result, it is often used in essential oil blends and recipes. This oil supports overall wellness and the body’s natural response to injury and irritation. Copaiba contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene (55 percent) of any known essential oil. Google “beta caryophyllene” if you don’t know what that is!

5. Eucalyptus Globulus ($14.50 for 15-ml): I just love the aroma of Eucalyptus because it’s invigorating! Applied topically, Eucalyptus feels great on the chest and throat, or on muscles after exercise. You can’t go wrong with Eucalyptus Radiata, either – I have both. :)

6. Tangerine ($16.00 for 15-ml): Tangerine is one of my hubby’s favorite oils. Like other citrus oils, Tangerine includes naturally occurring limonene, a powerful antioxidant. Traditionally, Tangerine was used to support a healthy immune system and proper digestion.

7. Oregano ($27.75 for 15-ml): Oregano is my #1 oil for supporting my immune system. Why? Because it contains carvacrol – Google that if you don’t know what that is. :)

8. Thyme ($33.75 for 15-ml): Known since ancient times as a medicinal herb, Thyme contains large amounts of thymol – Google that if you don’t know what that is. As a dietary supplement, it is one of the strongest antioxidants known. Thyme supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and other body systems.

9. Lemongrass ($11.25 for 15-ml): Lemongrass is one of those oils that are just so affordable, you can’t not order it and give it a try! Lemongrass primarily supports overall well-being and may support the digestive system.

Beyond the Premium Starter Kit – favorite essential oil blends:

10. Abundance ($37.00 for 15-ml): I love diffusing and applying a drop of Abundance to my wrists before heading to the casino lol! Abundance creates a law of attraction with prosperity and plenitude. 

11. Valor ($14.75 for 5-ml): Valor is a great oil to use when you want to promote feelings of courage, confidence, and self-esteem. It can also be used to support the body’s balance and alignment.

12. Peace & Calming ($14.25 for 5-ml): Peace & Calming is my favorite oil for promoting relaxation and bringing about a sense of calm. Works great on people and dogs (think doggy car rides, thunderstorms, and fireworks)!

13. White Angelica ($28.00 for 5-ml): White Angelica is a great oil to use when you will be around new or large groups of people. It can be used to guard against negative energy and promote feelings of protection and security.

14. R.C. ($10.25 for 5-ml): Oilers love R.C. in the wintertime! You can use it to support/comfort the chest and throat. Try it before bed or before exercise.

15. Gentle Baby  ($21.25 for 5-ml): Gentle Baby helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. Gentle Baby can also be used to soothe and enhance the youthful looking appearance of the skin.

16. DiGize ($32.75 for 15-ml): DiGize contains essential oils known for comforting and supporting the digestive system. It’s a perfect oil for support before or after a meal, or  while traveling.

17. Breathe Again roll-on ($25.75 for 10-ml): The name says it all! Roll across the sinuses, under the nose, and on the chest. Love this stuff! A perfect on-the-go oil!

18. Deep Relief roll-on ($26.75 for 10-ml): Roll on the temples, back of the neck, or any other targeted area where you could use a little relief after activity. Another great on-the-go oil! LOVE LOVE LOVE this oil!

Beyond the Premium Starter Kit – favorite essential oil infused products:

19. Thieves household cleaner ($22.00 for 14.4-ounces): Add a small amount (directions on the bottle) of this concentrated cleaner to a spray bottle filled with water (makes 432-720 ounces of cleaner). It’s safe, inexpensive, and effective. It’s the only cleaner we use in our house now! Smells awesome too!

20. V-6 ($21.75 for 8-ounces): Use to dilute essential oils for topical application. V-6 is a favorite among oilers because it nourishes the skin, has a long shelf life, doesn’t clog pores, and doesn’t stain clothes. It also comes in a pump bottle, which makes it easy and convenient to use.

21. NingXia Red ($71.00 for two 750-ml bottles; other sizes available): NingXia Red is packed with antioxidants! Try drinking 2 ounces daily to support overall health and wellness, revitalize the body and mind, prevent oxidative stress, support normal cellular and immune function, and support normal eye health. YUMMY!

22. Thieves bar soap ($10.25 for 3.45-ounce bar): You’ll never think bar soap is lame again. Use Thieves bar soap instead of your regular body wash to feel cleaner and fresher than ever before!

23. Ortho Sport massage oil ($34.75 for 8-ounces): Apply liberally to soothe and warm muscles (and other areas of the body). I love applying this stuff to my legs after a long run or my back after a long day of yard work.

24. Thieves Aromabright toothpaste ($9.75 for 0.25-ounce): My teeth feel so much cleaner and my breath is so much fresher with this toothpaste!

25. Young Living lip balms ($4.00 for 0.16-ounce tube): Use to moisturize and protect the lips. Available in Lavender, Cinnamint, and Grapefruit.
