My Young Living Silver Retreat Experience – AMAZING!

I’ve been with Young Living since December 2013. I joined without any intention to make it a business. I simply joined as a Wholesale Member to get the Premium Starter Kit and 24% discount. After all, I was THAT person who wouldn’t even respond to an invite for a “party” from “those companies.” However, I ended up loving the oils so much that my mindset surrounding the “business” shifted. And here I am, a Young Living Silver (working towards Gold) who attended the all expense paid Silver Retreat last week. Ahh! I still can’t believe it! It was so great see Young Living up close and finally meet my oily peeps in person. Below are some of my pics from my trip where we received training, visited Young Living Corporate, and got to spend an entire day at Young Living’s Mona, Utah farm. I hope this helps you make a personal connection with me and helps confirm Young Living’s mission and Seed to Seal promise. Everything about this company is for real and I’m so excited to be a part of it! Thanks for visiting! ♥♥♥

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!

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!
