In May 2014 I found myself in a place of extreme hopelessness and was not happy. I remembered that a friend had posted on Facebook about essential oils so I messaged her for more info. Little did I know that my life trajectory would change forever when I found Young Living! I started using the oils and immediately began experiencing hope, joy, and emotional support that I had not been able to find before! Now going forward I have a huge oily toolbox to help me to support my family. I have hope and a passion to share my story with others so that they can experience the change they need in their life too!
In July 2014 a long time friend of mine, Anna Meroniuk had posted about Young Living on her Facebook page. I had always been really interested in essential oils but just didn't know where to begin. Her post came at just the right time, so here I am almost 2 years later still working closely with Anna to help empower people with natural ways to better their overall health. Young Living has been a God send for me. Anna has the drive and determination to help others like me become better educated when it comes to our health. Young Living + Anna = a better you!!

Pressed from the fresh rinds of the fruit, Lemon Vitality is a delicious essential oil that has that wonderfully nostalgic taste and smell of lemon drop candy. It’s a great substitute in any recipe calling for fresh lemon juice, rind, or flavoring—without all the hassle of zesting, grating, or juicing. It’s especially good in shortbread cookies, jams, or even a glass of ice-cold water.
Lemon Vitality’s versatility in sweet and savory recipes is what makes this fruit a popular item in kitchens around the world. Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes. Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. I’m available for any essential oil question – Get in touch!
How do you support your family’s health and wellness during the winter?
Ever since I attended Young Living’s Grand Convention in 2015, I have been making it a point to order at least one new (for me) product a month in my Essential Rewards order. Here are the 3 things that were so easy for me to do!
It’s as easy as:
1. Try out & fall in love with so many wonderful products!
2. Eliminate items around the house that were toxic!
3. Consolidate my shopping into one monthly order!
I wanted to share with you a little about just 20 of the products, oils, and supplements that I have tried and hopefully give you some ideas of what to try out next for your family! Note: These are in no particular order of favorites.
1. Thieves Laundry Soap
This stuff is amazing and I could not believe how well it cleaned our clothes with such a small amount in my large loads! My laundry smells so clean and fresh and it lasts for a long time for such a small bottle!
2. Thieves Dish Soap
This stuff is great! We end up doing a good bit of hand washing and I love this stuff. It only takes a little bit (though it does not have tons of sudz) and cleans really well! So natural and smells fresh!
3. Thieves Foaming Hand Soap
Just recently got this and love it, it is so light, fresh, and does not dry your hands out!
4. Super B Tablets
I take this in the morning when I drink my NingXia Red and I love the energy I have during the day!
My chiropractor suggested that I get a fish oil supplement so I jumped on and ordered OmegaGize! Such a great quality supplement and I love that! I personally found taking it at night is best for me, but everyone is different.
6. Life 5
This is a Probiotic and it is so fabulous! I love taking it when I have any little discomfort with my digestive system.
7. Lavender Mint Shampoo & Conditioner
I love this stuff!!! I tried the Lavender Volume Conditioner first, but it made my thin/fine hair pretty tangled. I tried this conditioner…WOW! One tiny bit makes my hair silky smooth and it smells amazing too!
8. Rose Ointment
This stuff is awesome! I use it on so many things from under my eyes, scraps & scratches, baby bums, and bruises…I love it because it is so soothing and a little goes a long way!
9. Morning Start Bath & Shower Gel
This will wake you up and get you going in the morning! I love this shower gel! It does not take much on a loofah to get you all washed up and ready for the day!
10. Lime Essential Oil
I have tried a lot of the other citruses in my water, but I do believe this one is a new favorite of mine …YUM!
11. Melrose Essential Oil
This oil is great for cleansing and supporting the appearance of your skin! I have just recently starting using it on my face and love the pleasant aroma.
12. Lemongrass Essential Oil
It has a great scent, has many uses, and is one of the oils in the blend Purification…my husband loves the smell!
13. MultiGreens Capsules
These are a great supplement and are designed to boost vitality by working with the glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems. I love them and enjoy having them be a part of my daily supplement routine.
14. KidScents – Tender Tush (specially formatted for kids)
All I can say is that if you have a younger child, order it today! This has helped our little daughters bum (while in diapers) so much and I even love it on her cheeks when they are dry!
15. Grounding Essential Oil
This is a lovely oil that I like to diffuse along with a citrus oil (Tangerine is a fun one) and just breath it in!
16. Breathe Again Roll-On
My husband loves the smell of this one! It was making him sleep so deeply at night that he was snoring, so we had to dial back the amount he was using and adjust with some other oils. It is good stuff!
17. Mineral Essence
I have to be honest and say this stuff is great for you, but does not taste super good to me. I personally put the dropper towards the back of my throat to squirt it and afterwards I chase it down with NingXia Red!
18. Owie Essential Oil (specially formatted for kids)
We just recently had to give this one a try when our little princess got a cut on her foot…it worked like a charm (smells great too) and she never even tried to pull off the band-aid!
19. TummyGize Essential Oil (specially formatted for kids)
This is the kids version of DiGize and it smells way better too…lol…good for any digestive discomforts!
20. Thieves Household Cleaner
Where to even start with this one?!?! It is simply amazing and I love it! It cleans EVERYTHING and I don’t need other toxic cleaners now. Some of the things I use it for: laundry spot cleaning, glass & mirrors, toilets, sinks, bathtubs, counter tops, and I also use it to soak and clean my makeup brushes! This one is a no-brainer…order it today!
I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about my thoughts on these 20 products and that you will try them too!
Recently we started diffusing essential oils in our baby’s nursery at night. She is almost 4 months old and there were a couple of reasons that we started diffusing to support her respiratory health. First, we live in northern Idaho and this summer we had a lot of forest fires in the area and this created a lot of smoke in the air and we wanted to cleanse and freshen the air that she was breathing. Second, she had picked up the sniffles and we wanted to give her immune system a boost to help her body heal itself. The oils that we are using in the diffuser are Young Living’s Purification, R.C., Lemon, Lavender, & Peppermint. Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint are a great combo for respiratory support.
One of the additional benefits we have seen while diffusing oils for our baby is also peaceful sleep. We add Lavender and it has such wonderful calming properties. She is sleeping on average about 8 hours a night and this is a sweet relief for mommy & daddy!
As much as we love diffusing essential oils for our baby, we also know that we (mommy & daddy) reap the benefits of inhaling these oils too. Go get your diffuser and get it going!
