Discover Essential Oils

Young Living Everyday Essential Oils for Health, Happiness, and Wholeness

There are tons of products on the market now to help support green, organic lifestyles.  You can add essential oils to your everyday arsenal of products that are easy and extremely beneficial ways to improve your health, mood, and spirituality. I have personally always been a huge proponent of any kind of essential oils and have been using them for beauty recipes, ingesting, and aromatherapy, for about five years now.  Those new to essential oils may wonder what are some benefits of including these tiny vials into my daily routine?


  • Improve your mood
  • Supports weight management
  • Increases energy levels
  • Provides a source of powerful antioxidants
  • Combats toxins in your environment
  • Supports immune system functions
  • Supports digestive functions
  • Cleanse and purify your home
  • Promotes healthy skin
  • Supports healthy hair
  • Provides anti-aging benefits
  • Heightens and activates your spiritual awareness

Below is an example picture of how to incorporate some of the more popular oils into your daily routines, as provided by the Young Living website.



All of the above benefits sound great? Then you are ready to take the plunge and begin your new health journey with the assistance of quality essential oils. Additionally, Young Living is committed to a high quality product that is meticulously tested and checked to meet above the industry standards. They have coined the phrase from “Seed to Seal” as a way to show they control and regulate every phase of production for each oil and product they manufacture. So the product you are getting is like the Whole Foods of essential oils. The problem with cheaper essential oils is that they are often diluted and can contain non-organic and toxic ingredients mixed in with the “pure” oil. Federal regulations are not strict enough with labeling, so a product labeled as pure or organic might not actually be 100% natural.

With anything, quality can come at a price and that’s what you’re getting with Young Living–the best quality product.  I like to say Young Living is like the “Whole Foods” of essential oil companies. While the price point on various oils may seem high, the best way to save money and get a discount is to become a Young Living Distributor (Wholesale) and you will receive up to 24% off, as well as other perks. There is no obligation to sell and this is not some pyramid scheme (I was skeptical for about a year before joining). Bottom line is, you can become a wholesale seller with ease and take your stab at an amazing financial venture that can be very rewarding. Or, you can simply enjoy the discounts on the products you love. If you want to just go for it and become a wholesale team member, please  visit my exclusive Young Living Distributor page today at:

Become a Wholesale Distributor

Why become a Wholesale Member vs. Retail Customer?

It’s easy–because you save 24% off of EVERYTHING! Unlike other companies, Young Living does not require you to sell anything except to yourself, so essentially you can reap the benefits of a wholesale account. The only “catch” is you must spend $50 a YEAR, but this can be products you purchase yourself or for others. Within a 12 month time, that $50 is easily spent. Once you a wholesale member, you are given a sponsor, like me, who can help explain and show you the ropes into the world of essential oils. So if you like saving money, there really is no other choice but to become a wholesale member, especially since you will love the oils just as me and want to collect them all! If you are still unsure, buy a sample pack of oils from my site at (Member Number: 2431561) and try them out. Once you do, you will never look back!

In a snapshot here are the perks to being a wholesale member:

  • 24% discount off everything
  • No obligation to sell
  • Commitment of only $50 a YEAR in products

Starter Kits

YL has  few different starter kits ranging in price from beginner to deluxe. Personally, I purchased the Premium Basic Starter Kit only for the value. The items contained in the kit are worth well over $300 and it’s only $160! If you just want a smaller kit, you can try the Basic Starter Kit for only $45. Check out each kit below:

  • Premium Starter Kits: You can choose between 3 premium kit options: Classic Kit, Thieves Kit, or theNingXia Kit. These kits are still a great deal and you can purchase them again and again once you are a wholesale member as they are a great way to sample the manyYL products.
    1. Premium Basic Starter Kit: The classic kit comes with 11 different, 5 ml essential oils (best sellers including Lavender, Peppermint Vitality, Lemon Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Frankincense, Pan Away, R.C., Thieves Vitality, Purification, Stress Away, and DiGize oil blends.), a home diffuser, samples, two NingXia sample packs, product guide, a free roll-on, and product information. The diffuser alone is $75 and the oils combined are well worth this price. I absolutely love my diffuser and have it set all the time.
    2. Thieves Premium Starter Kit: This kit is wonderful for helping convert your home cleaning products to green clean. This kit contains all you need to make that transition as Thieves is truly an amazing antimicrobial and antibacterial again that functions as a great multipurpose cleaner. This kit includes 2 household cleaners, 2 hand soaps, 2 sprays, 15ml Thieves Oil, dental floss, toothpaste, mouth wash, hand sanitizer, Stress Away Oil Blend, samples, NingXia sample packs, and more!
    3. NingXia Premium Starter Kit: This kit features NingXia Red which is a multi-purpose drink that is primarily used a natural energy drink. The founder, Gary Young, has discovered the immense health benefits of NingXia (more commonly known as Wolfberries or Goji Berries) and their link to a healthy immune system and longevity. This would be a great kit for anyone interested in fitness and supplements as this is a great, non-toxic energy booster. You can drink them straight or add the concoction in any smoothie or green drink you make. (NOTE: This kit is $10 more at $170)

What’s the Deal with the Essential Rewards?

Admittedly, I didn’t understand the Essential Rewards Program and needed my sponsor to sit me down and explain it. To save you the headache, let me explain. The Essential Rewards is like a bonus program you can enroll in (this is completely optional) where you agree to buy certain products each month for a minimum of 50 PV (basically YL points that average about $50). You can change your product order for your Essential Rewards Order every month to try new products. For example, my next monthly Essential Rewards Order includes a 15ml bottle of Abundance and 15ml of Thieves oil. You get to pick the date you want your card charged and done! You will accrue points that act as free YL dollars for you to use and buy more stuff! This will (1) help you quickly meet your $50 a year minimum, (2) allow you to try more great YL products, (3) enable you to replenish your existing supply each month. So let’s say you use a lot of Lavender oil and you find yourself running out quickly. Well add it to your monthly Essential Rewards order and you will never run out. If you are like me and you are constantly using different oils all the time, this is great to purchase that one expensive oil you want while accruing points and to try new products. You can control your Essential Rewards orders online or do it over the phone. I mark my calendar to remind myself when to change my order for the next month and when my card will be charged. The program is completely voluntarily and you can withdrawal from the program at any time–no penalties!


Want to Make this a Business?
YL offers you the chance to make this a full-time or side business. Just to give you an idea, if you sell premium kits in your first month, you will have already paid for your own premium kit. You can do this with friends and family and create an “oily” network dedicated to helping pay for our own essential oils.

Prayer Candles

I have used prayer candles for a really long time partly as a collector’s piece and partly for conducting mini rituals. You can make a trek to your nearest botanica and see the assortment of colors and candles for just about everything. I like a lot of color and like to have the full spectrum rainbow of prayer candles in my home at all times. Some take the use of this candles very seriously and associate them with witchcraft, voodoo, or brujeria and believe them to be used for bad or malicious intent. I recall a friend visited me and her cousin was from Mexico City. When she saw my prayer candles she quietly freaked out and thought I was a bruja. Honestly, I don’t subscribe to voodoo or at least the practice of black magic. I like the candles for the purpose of mediation, setting intentions, and just a physical object to create rituals from. “If you think bad thoughts, bad things are to come” is kind of the same principle with these candles. If you want to use them to conjure bad entities or spirits, then that’s your choice; however, I play on the side of light, love, and gratitude.

Some of my favorite candle varieties include:

  • Abre Camino, or Road Opener
  • Chango Macho, which is the Good Luck Spirit
  • Block Buster, or Rompe Bloque


You can use the Abre Camino to literally clear your path to help you pursue your endeavors and dreams. The Chango Macho candle is an African Orisha that can be burned as an offering to bring about good luck, love, and prosperity. Lastly, the block buster can remove any obstacles in your path that might be impeding you from achieving your goals.

Enjoy and ritual-on my friends.

Jade Roller Face Super Youth Tonic

I have been using the Jade Face Roller for a few months now and it has vastly improved the smoothness of my skin while giving me a mini relaxing facial massage. Using Young Living Essential Oils, I have created a wonderful “Super Youth Tonic” I spritz on my face before I do my rolling. The tonic has wonderful essential oil goodies in it to help reduce fine lines, provide antioxidant boosters, improve hydration, and keep your skin squeaky clean.

In a glass small spray bottle (I prefer the amber colored ones), combine the following:

  • 10 drops of Geranium: provides a tightening and toning effect to your skin and helps to fade scars and other spots on the skin
  • 5 drops of Joy: a blend of luxurious oils including jasmine and rose which have been known to help dry and aging skin
  • 5 drops of Rosemary: acts as a preservative so the mixture won’t spoil
  • 10 drops of Carrot Seed Oil: loaded with antioxidants to repair damaged cells from free radicals and helps protect your skin from wrinkles
  • 5 drops of Lavender: great as antibacterial to prohibit acne
  • 6 drops of Frankincense: helps promote healthy skin cell regeneration and keeps existing cells healthy
  • 3 drops of Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia): acts as an antiseptic and antibacterial to zap impurities
  • Fill the bottle with purified water
  • Shake well before each application

Feel free to modify the above or to add your own favorite skin boosting oils to your mixture. Keep in mind your skin’s own sensitivity to oils and always use the oils that work well with your skin and your nose!

Since this is a natural, chemical-free tonic, I go through a bottle every 3 weeks since I’m spritzing my face in the morning, throughout the day, and in the evening–similar to a toner. If you do make this mixture, and although Rosemary helps preserve it, I would recommend changing your mixture every month so it’s fresh.

Once you have made your mixture, you can spritz some on your face and gently glide the jade face roller over your face for an extra cooling and relaxing facial massage. The jade roller acts a great skin toner.
