I’ve always been intrigued by essential oils. I couldn’t wait to get a job to start my collection! When I was pregnant in 2013, I started eating cleaner foods and working toward a medication/intervention free labor. This led to a movement of removing conventional and harmful products from our home and to be better stewards of what we have in all the areas of our life. I was gifted a starter kit from my grandmother for Christmas in 2014. Over time, I began to learn how to apply the oils to my life. I started to see changes with my mood and improvement in my health. I committed to Young Living and signed up for Essential Rewards in March 2016. We started replacing all our common household cleaners and first aid kit with oil infused products. I love coming alongside other mothers to learn from each other about natural living and clean eating. I’m now planning our second natural birth and I’m excited to incorporate Young Living products in the birth and healing process.
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!
This is an example of how we have incorporating Young Living into our daily lives…
Wake Up: Use Thieves toothpaste to gently remove stains, polish, and brighten our teeth with a peppermint/spearmint combination with assurance of no fluoride, synthetic dyes, or preservatives. We also use Thieves mouthwash, dental floss, and hand soap.
Breakfast: Drink some NingXia Red with our healthy breakfast for an antioxidant booster with a great taste!
Get Dressed: Add oils to our feet, wrists, under our nose, back of our necks (see a reference guide for more specific information on the best place to put your oils and the best oils to use to combat what you what to accomplish.) We use oils to support our immune system, manage emotions, maintain focus, and keeping in balance. Ladies, add a little rub of Progessence Plus in the morning to maintain hormone balance.
Oil Jewelry: Use an oil necklace or bracelet (that oils are added in/on) to wear on your body throughout the day to provide continuous oil application on your wrist or “diffused” around your neck. Choose oils to balance your emotions or combat a struggling area. Grounding is my favorite.
MIDDLE of the DAY
I carry oils in my purse and never leave home without a little set! I use them if we are going someone like the public library to boost immunity (thieves), for cuts, scrapes, burns, (lavender), or to as bug repellant (purification).
If we are home in the middle of the day, we diffuse Peace and Calming, Joy, or Stress Away for relaxation, clean our home with confidence with Thieves Household Cleaner, and use them for problem areas.

Boost Immunity: Thieves
Energy Boost: Peppermint, Abundance
Rest Time: Peace & Calming, Lavender
Take a nice bath with epsom salts and oils such as lavender, rosemary, and/or peppermint for relaxation.
We add some oils into our coconut oil mixture for a homemade chemical-free lotion. We also use Frankincense for supporting natural skin health, PanAway or Deep Relief Roll-on for supporting tired muscles.
End the night by diffusing Peace and Calming, Joy, or Stress Away for relaxation or Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint for help maintaining seasonal discomforts. You can also use Rutavala roll-on for an easy application. We also rub Thieves on the bottoms of our feet every night before bed.
Did you know that Young Living offers more products than just essential oils? They do!
Why does this matter?
I like to see people being good stewards. Here are some ways to make that happen!
I am VERY GRATEFUL to have found Young Living. I love the company and I love to talk to people about what products they love and learn what to try. I purposefully plan our monthly family income so that I can make monthly YL purchases. It is important to me to have these products in my home when I need them.
Two ways that I have found to spend money wisely:
–Enroll as a Young Living MEMBER
–Sign up for the Essential Rewards Program

Here are some reasons I love this program:
I have replaced our conventional toothpaste, mouthwash, household cleaners (multiple cleaners have been replaced with ONE!), hand sanitizer, and many more. I have a list of other things in our home I want to replace. I would like to use replaced my flour with einkorn flour, order more oils, and order as much Ningxia Red as my family wants to drink.
