My New Found Love of Essential Oils

I’ve always loved the thought of using essential oils as a part of a healthier lifestyle, but always felt so overwhelmed by them.  There are so many to choose from, how to use them-diffuse, ingest, topically, and learning what they are each best for.

Afraid no more!  I’m starting to immerse myself into the world of essential oils and I LOVE it!  I’ve purchased many oils and diffusers over the last several months, and I must say, it has been money well spent!

My brand of choice when it comes to essential oils is Young Living.  I love that their oils are pure and they are committed to bringing wellness to the world.  Their mission statement says it all, “We honor our stewardship to champion nature’s living energy, essential oils, by fostering a community of healing and discovery while inspiring individuals to wellness, purpose, and abundance”.

 

Some of my favorite products:

The Aria Diffuser:

This is the Cadillac of all diffusers!  It’s super stylish and has so many amazing features.

  • The remote lets you chose from a selection of soothing, built-in sounds that are heavenly!  You can also select the run time and control the multicolored LED lights.
  • It has built-in speakers so you can plug your own music in and listen while you relax!
  • It’s made from American Maple and because of the glass dome you can watch the vapor releasing which is extremely soothing!

This guy is a little pricey, but you can purchase it at wholesale if you become a distributor.  It’s most cost-effective if you purchase it as part of a start-up kit.  You will receive 11 essential oils, samples and training material for less than the cost of the diffuser itself!

If you are interested in signing up as a distributor, you can do so here.

The nice thing about signing up as a distributor is that you get the products at wholesale cost and there are no selling minimums!  No pressure, just share what you love!

Desert Mist Diffuser:

This is another favorite diffuser and at a more manageable cost.  This is the diffuser that I use in my kid’s rooms and entry.  It also has amazing features:

  • Moroccan Trellis design
  • It’s a humidifier, atomizer and aroma diffuser all in one!
  • High, low and intermittent settings so it can run up to 10 hours!
  • 10 LED colored light options, including a candle-like flicker

Again, this is best purchased as a kit.  You will also receive 11 essential oils, samples and training materials.

Essential Oil Blends:

I’ve always been one to diffuse a single oil in a diffuser and call it a day.  Whatever the scent was in the bottle was what came out of the diffuser.  Can be pretty boring, but diffusing or applying singles are also very beneficial if you are trying to help a specific ailment.

But now?  My eyes have now been opened to blending!  Using multiple oils in a diffuser AT THE SAME TIME?  Whaaaat?  It’s absolutely the best!

Here are some of my favorites:

For stress/anxiety: Vetiver and Bergamot.

Vetiver is known to be grounding, calming and stabilizing while Bergamot is said to produce a mild sedative effect that relaxes the body and mind as the flavonoids in the oil act on the glands, stimulating the production of neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.  AND both smell earthy and amazing!

Dreaming of the tropics?  Try one of these blends:

Like I said earlier, I felt so overwhelmed by oils which made me look the other way for a long time.  Here are some resources that I have found to be extremely helpful:

Pureandlovely.com. Melissa, Courtney and Kylee have done an amazing job putting together all of the information on this site.  They have been extremely supportive and have answered all of my crazy questions.  :). Once you become a distributor (here) you can become part of the Pure and Lovely tribe on facebook which is another great source of information and you can learn about some amazing secret blends!

Reference Guide for Essential Oils app. This is a great way to learn about individual oils as well as blends. You can search by symptom to see which oils and applications work best or search by oil to learn about it’s benefits!
