I grew up using essential oils – my mom always had them around. Whether it was relaxing lavender EO in the diffuser, oils for emotional support or as ingredients in natural wellness remedies.
They’re part of my daily life – Billy and I love using them for:
- safer home scents in our diffusers
- adding non-toxic scent to dryer balls
- creating natural perfume / cologne rollerballs
- holistic wellness like immune support + sleep support
- supporting skin health + skincare
As a holistic health coach – I love helping my clients make simple swaps for safer skincare, safer beauty, and a healthier home. It’s so important to me to create a home environment that supports wellness beyond just what’s on your plate.
So I’m passionate about sharing them with anyone interested in making the switch to non-toxic, natural products and calling in healthy habits.
For anyone who wants to do a deep dive – there’s plenty of research-backed science behind essential oils. Our sense of smell is part of the limbic system which is one part of the most primal parts of the brain. It’s connected to our central nervous system – affecting things like memory, motivation, and your emotions.
Where to Purchase Oils
I get asked a lot where to find high-quality essential oils – here’s where I order mine.
Sign up as a Member – for 24% off retail prices (recommended) this does NOT mean you will ever have to sell anything, it just means you are getting a starter kit & will therefore get 24% off retail prices!
If you’ve been wanting to get started with essential oils but don’t know exactly where to start – consider getting a starter kit.
A starter kit is a curated set of versatile oils, your choice of diffuser, and a sample of the thieves cleaning products (sanitizing spray and hand sanitizer). Getting a starter kit means you get to be a member and receive 24% off of retail prices going forward – so it’s an awesome way to start exploring essential oil products with a big discount.
These oils are like a holistic “first aid” kit for your household – containing 12 of the MOST useful oils. Ones that aid in immune support, emotional support, skin health, stress management, sleep support, and beyond. Once you order your starter kit, you’ll get some happy mail from me! With lots of ideas on what diffuser blends, wellness teas, rollerballs, and beauty products you can make with your new EOs.
YOUR STARTER KIT
This is everything you get in a premium starter kit. It’s seriously the simplest way to get started and makes sure you’re stocked up on some of my most-reached-for powerhouse oils – like Lavender, Frankincense, and Peppermint. Plus Young Living blends like Thieves + Stress Away (we use both daily in our house, don’t know what we did before we had these!).
Here are all the oils that come in your kit
Your kit comes standard with the beautiful Desert Mist diffuser (pictured in the starter kit photo above!) but you’ll see the option to select another one. If you’re interested in the Aria diffuser (the wood and glass one you may have seen in my instastories) adding it to your starter kit is the best time to grab it for the lowest possible price. Even with the member discount, enrollment is when you’ll get THE best deal.
I have both the Desert Mist + the Aria – we keep one diffuser for our living room + kitchen space, and use the other for our bedroom.
Next you can choose to set up your Essential Rewards monthly autoship (by picking out a few other items – like the Thieves cleaner, Thieves dish soap, oils you need to make your own glow oil or the coveted Anthro Blend (Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lime, Geranium and Northern Lights Black spruce essential oils) – to try out next month.
I highly recommend this optional program as a way to order products you want to have outside the kit and get rewarded for it with points you can spend on future orders. And take advantage of the monthly ER promos that often feature bonus ER points or free oils, depending on order total.
I treat my monthly Essential Rewards order like a wellness box subscription – to restock on essential oils, safer beauty staples, and safer home cleaning products (like hand soap, dishwasher powder, laundry detergent, you name it).
You can make updates as many times as you like to your order before it ships. You can also cancel it at any time – even before it ships! If you want to make it ship sooner, you can do that too.
MEMBER RESOURCES + COMMUNITY
When you sign up as a member buying a starter kit you you get to join a much larger community as well! I’m part of a team with private wellness groups on Facebook that are designed to help you get to know your oils – it’s a great resource to learn all the fun and different ways to use them. In these groups you can draw on the experience and knowledge of thousands of other oils users. Ask questions and find endless DIY’s, recipes and so much more!
Your oils do only as much good as you let them, so I invite you to dive in and learn all you can. Don’t be intimidated, we all started in the same spot, not knowing much. Being curious. Knowing we want to bring healthier, safer, non-toxic products into our homes.
The good news is, we are all here to support you – myself included!
What do you use oils for? For just about everything!! Whether you are looking for oils to help you sleep, for natural immune system support, for energy, for focus, for relaxation, for your kids, for natural alternatives to cleaning products, the list is endless. If you want to find natural support or a natural alternative – there’s probably an oil for that! And you will learn along the way, there aren’t hard set rules, but part of joining our oils team will give you access to the most amazing resources & our private Facebook community. So all you have to do is type in a question in the “search” field (like “rollerball recipe”) and you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for.
Why Young Living? YL has an unmatched Seed to Seal process to guarantee the purity & potency of every oil. Each batch of oils is rigorously tested in house for therapeutic viability & they are so confident in their products that you can actually visit the farms & participate in the harvest/distillation process. Their ingredient quality and transparency in sourcing is what drew me to them. I can look up all their farms (even visit some in person if I want!) and see where each oil is sourced. That transparency is huge for me.
How do you use oils? You can diffuse them (you get a diffuser in your starter kit) which is great for making your house smell great, helping you and your littles relax at night, getting rid of unwanted odors in the house & more, you can apply topically (some require a carrier oil like coconut oil, you’ll learn all about that later!), you can make rollerball combos, face oils, creams, sprays, and just about anything!!
How will I learn how to use my kit? You’ll get plenty of reading material with your kit. And as mentioned above, you’ll get access to our exclusive Facebook community full of amazing resources – like how to use each oil in your kit, which oils to avoid around kids or while pregnant/nursing, and all of the dilution ratios for individual oils. We have classes, books, live Facebook hangouts & search functionality that will help you navigate through any questions you might have.
What should I get? A premium starter kit, which comes with 12 of the most commonly used oils + your diffuser (I recommend the Desert Mist), is the best value & provides you with everything you need to get started. You’ll get over $400 worth of product for only $165.
Do you have to order more oils monthly or sell them? Nope! Your kit can be a one time purchase, but along with it comes a wholesale membership, which just means that should you decide to purchase oils in the future, you would get a 24% discount! You will also get a personal referral link should you ever decide that you want to share them, but neither is required. When you sign up as a wholesale member, you have the option of joining our private wellness group on facebook, which is where you can learn everything you need to know about using your oils & connect with an amazing, inspiring community. If you are interested in selling the oils and sharing about the company – I am passionate about helping women earn income to help support themselves and their families. We have monthly business bootcamps & provide mentorship to everyone who joins us.
