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!

Young Living Essential Oil Quick Tips

In February 2016, my sponsor, Angie, and I began designing a bunch of Oil Moxie branded graphics so that our team can share their love of essential oils with the world and remain compliant with the FDA. I brainstorm the catchy phrases, while Angie designs the sleek looking graphics. Don’t you just love these?! Check back here often for more Essential Oil Quick Tips because as we roll more oily graphics out, I will add them to this post. 

Wake ME UP: I like diffusing this oily combo (3 drops each) in the morning because it helps wake me up. I also like to add a drop of Lemon and a drop of Peppermint to my diffuser necklace! :)

Wake-Me-Up

GET RID OF stinky smells: Purification is my go to oil for getting rid of stinky smells! Sometimes I diffuse it, while other times I add a few drops to a small spray bottle with water (you can also add a sprinkle of Epsom salt to the spray bottle to help the oil disperse evenly in the water). Then I shake and spray wherever or on whatever stinks. Think bathroom, feet, shoes, furniture, garbage can, laundry, your arm pits (haha!), etc. :)  I also add a couple drops to the vacuum filter when I clean.

Get-Rid-of-Stinky-Smells

Goodnight SLEEP TIGHT: I like diffusing these two oils (3 drops each) -OR- adding 4-8 drops Lavender and 6-12 drops Stress Away to a 10-ml roller bottle. Then I fill the rest of the bottle up with carrier oil and roll on the wrists, behind the ears, on the back of the neck, and/or on the bottom of the feet before crawling into bed.

Goodnight-Sleep-Tight

Happy Momma BLEND: We at Oil Moxie call this the “Happy Momma” blend, but maybe we should have nicknamed it the “Happy People” blend! I like to diffuse these two oils (2 drops Joy, 4 drops Orange) or make a roll-on with them (10 ml roller bottle + 5-10 drops Joy + 7-14 drops Orange + fill the remainder of the bottle with carrier oil). I roll this on the wrists, back of the neck, behind the ears, and/or over the heart. *Joy and Orange are photosensitive – be careful if applying this combo to areas of the skin that may be exposed to direct sunlight.

Happy-Momma-Blend

Study TIME: I diffuse these two oils (3 drops Orange, 2-3 drops Peppermint) quite often. I LOVE this combo because it helps promote focus and it smells awesome!! You can also make a roll-on by adding 5-10 drops of each oil to a 10-ml roller bottle. Top with carrier oil and apply to the wrists, back of neck, or on palms (cup over nose and inhale). Orange is photosensitive – be careful if applying this combo to areas of the skin that may be exposed to direct sunlight.

Study-Time

SUPPORT THAT respiratory system: I love using Thieves Vitality for respiratory support and to support healthy immune function during the winter! I add 1-2 drops to an empty capsule, add 4+ drops of liquid coconut oil, and take it as a dietary supplement. I also like to make tea by adding a drop of Thieves Vitality, a drop of Lemon Vitality, and honey (to taste) to a mug of warm water. My team member says she loves adding a drop of Thieves Vitality to warm apple cider or apple juice – I haven’t tried this, but it sounds super yummy! :)

Support-that-Respiratory-System

Keep calm AND CARRY ON: Peace & Calming (or the reformulated Peace & Calming II) is a great oil for people and pets (think car rides, fourth of July, etc). I like to diffuse this oil and apply it topically. I keep a diluted roller of Peace & Calming or Peace & Calming II around the house (10-20 drops in a 10-ml roller bottle + top with carrier oil) because it’s easy to apply to myself and the pups. I swipe the roller behind my ears, on the back of my neck, and on my wrists. Then I swipe my wrist across the back of each dog so they also keep calm. :) Peace & Calming and Peace & Calming II is photosensitive – be careful if applying either of these oils to areas of the skin that may be exposed to direct sunlight.

Keep-Calm-and-Carry-On

Pre-workout: Pre-workout oily awesomeness!! I like to add 10-20 drops of RC to a 10-ml roller bottle and fill the rest of the bottle with carrier oil. I roll that stuff right on my chest, throat, and sinuses and take a deep breath. I feel amazing during a workout when I use this!

Pre-Workout

Post-workout: Post-workout oils!! Sometimes, I put a little puddle of carrier oil in my hand with 1-2 drops of PanAway and 1-2 drops of Peppermint. Then, I apply that mixture to my muscles after a workout. Sometimes, I like to make an on-the-go roll-on by adding 15 drops Peppermint and 5 drops PanAway (for more intense relief, I add 9 more drops Peppermint and 3 more drops PanAway) to a 10-ml roller bottle and top with carrier oil. Then I roll it on my muscles, forehead, temples, and/or back of the neck.

Post-Workout

Stressed AND ON A DEADLINE: Best at school and at work diffuser combo (3 drops each) EVER!!! Oh my gosh….the combo of Peppermint and Stress Away SMELLS SOOOOO GOOD!!!! Peppermint promotes focus, while Stress Away promotes relaxation! :)

Stressed-and-On-a-Deadline

BEST breath freshener EVER: I use Peppermint Vitality to freshen my breath after my morning coffee. :) If I am feeling brave, I add a drop of Peppermint Vitality directly to my tongue. Most of the time, however, I add a drop to a glass of water and sip away. My newly discovered way to freshen my breath is to make a fresh breath spray by adding 1-3 drops Peppermint Vitality to a 4-ml spray vial filled with water.

Best-Breath-Freshener-Ever-blank

FOR YOUR WOOL dryer balls: Laundry day essentials! Have you made the switch to wool dryer balls, yet? They soften your clothes naturally, reduce drying times, and prevent static and wrinkles. They also eliminate toxic chemicals from being deposited on your clothes and body from dryer sheets and fabric softeners. Add 2-4 drops of Lavender, Purification, or your favorite essential oil to your dryer balls and scent your clothes naturally. This is a super easy change to reduce toxins in your home!

Wool-Dryer-Balls-blank

For people WHO EAT: Peppermint Vitality and DiGize Vitality are my go-to oils after I eat! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Peppermint Vitality, but if I need a little more digestive support, I grab the DiGize Vitality. To naturally support my digestive system, I like to add 1-2 drops of Peppermint Vitality to a glass of water and sip away after a meal. If I’m in a rush or I don’t want to taste the essential oil (DiGize Vitality doesn’t taste all that great), I add 1-2 drops of one (or both) of these essential oils to a clear vegetable capsule, fill the remainder of the capsule with carrier oil, and swallow it (just like a pill). :)

For-People-Who-Eat-blank

TAX TIME necessities: If you haven’t done your taxes yet, here is an oily combo for you! Apply Abundance before starting your taxes for some good vibes. While doing your taxes, apply Acceptance (just in case your refund is lower than you expected or worse, you have to pay in). When finished with your taxes, apply Joy (either in celebration or to uplift your mood).

Tax-Time-Necessities-blank

LIQUID courage: Apply Valor or Valor II to your wrists, chest, base of neck, or bottoms of feet to feel calm and empowered. You can also add it to a diffuser necklace or put a drop in the palm of your hands, cup your hands over your nose and mouth, and huff it haha! And let’s not forget that it smells absolutely amazing in the diffuser with Orange. Valor tends to go out of stock from time to time due to seasonality of one of the oils, so Young Living created Valor II, which can be used in its place.

Liquid-Courage-blank

USE frequently AROUND A DEBBIE DOWNER: Working with people who have a case of the Mondays EVERYDAY?! Use White Angelica to help keep the negative away! Diffuse several drops, use it in a diffuser necklace, or rub a few drops on the shoulders, back of neck, behind the ears, or wrists. This oil can help promote feelings of protection and security.

Use-Frequently-Around-a-Debbie-Downer-blank

EMBRACE love: Here’s a little oily blend for self love and confidence. :) Add 3-4 drops Lavender, 3-4 drops Patchouli, 3-4 drops Ylang Ylang, and an optional drop of Geranium to a 10-ml roller bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with carrier oil. Apply to the back of the neck and over the heart. Then kick the negative self talk to the curb and say the affirmation, “I accept myself for who I am.” You can also diffuse a combo of these oils as well.

Embrace-Love-blank

RESTORE harmony: This is one of my favorite oily combos to restore harmony. The combo of these oils smells so AMAZING too!! To make a “harmony” roller, add 4 drops Patchouli, 4 drops Orange, 4 drops Sandalwood, and 1 drop Lemon to a 10-ml roller bottle. Then fill with carrier oil. Apply to wrists, back of neck, behind the ears, or on palms (cup and inhale). I also like diffusing a combo of these oils as well for some good vibes. *Lemon and Orange are photosensitive.

Restore-Harmony-blank

WINTER Wellness Tea: A little “Winter Wellness Tea” can support a healthy immune and respiratory system all year round. After all, consistency is the key when it comes to using oils! Add a drop of Thieves Vitality, a drop or Lemon Vitality, and honey (to taste) to a mug of warm water. Gently stir and sip. Or you can add a drop of each to a capsule, fill with carrier oil and swallow with water. Stay healthy people!

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!

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.

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.
