Using Essential Oils — What are they and how you can save on them!!

Using Essential Oils

Are any of you using Essential Oils already?

I bet many of you are saying…what exactly ARE Essential Oils and what do they do? I have heard about them but do they work? Maybe you have heard of all the great wellness benefits of essential oils but when you saw the price, you thought you would wait to try them?? I have been using them for a couple years and I love them!  AND of course I am purchasing them at way less than retail and will be doing posts to show how everyday use saves your household money and is healthier!! Read on to learn more 🙂


What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. Basically essential oils are concentrated herbs! The oils contain all of the greatness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodies’ health and wellness.

There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Rosemary and Orange to unusual and exotic ones like Helichrysum and Ravintsara, there’s a huge range to choose from – and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses.

3 Ways to Use Young Living Essential Oils:

1) Topically: apply directly to skin with or wothout mixing with a carrier oil

2) Aromatically: diffuse for fresh smelling homes and wellness/mood boosts

3) Internally: use Vitality Young Living Essential oils as dietary supplements in beverages or cooking recipes

How Can Essential Oils Help Promote Wellness and Health for You And Your Family?

When my friend sent me info about an Essential Oils Facebook Event, I said oh why not learn? What can it hurt if its going to help myself and my family? I was aware of the craze that was starting to happen with essential oils but I am not a craze follower– LOL. I was truly inquisitive in how they could help us live more naturally. And oh boy, have I learned ALOT in the last 2 years!!

When I started this site, I had friends and family confronting me to help them learn how to save money, and thats why I started Now, the same thing is happening with Essential Oils! Many friends, family and acquaintances are now asking me…how do essential oils work, how do they help, what do they do, do they really work?? SOOO…now I will be sharing info on oils too!

Just a few small things about myself that maybe you can relate to and how I have changed them using Essential Oils

1) I dont like to take medicine unless I absolutely have to (I haven't taken ibuprofen in almost a year- NOW I use Peppermint Oil for head, neck and tension and Deep Relief for aches and pains)

2) I love clean, fresh scents and was a candle & plugin maniac that I learned has 100's of bad chemicals in!! (NOW I use a diffuser with all kinds of awesome scents that not only smell great but also have virus busting and immunity boosting qualities such as Thieves)

3) I would at least get sick 2-3 times a year where I needed to see a doctor for antibiotics ( I havent been on an antibiotic in 11 months 🙂 Using the Young Living Essential Oils regularly in the last year to boost my immunity has worked for me!

4) I work full time, run this site, take care of household and do not always eat the healthiest nor get 8 hours of sleep (NOW I start my day diffusing, drinking & topically applying numerous oils for energy, immunity and mood and drinking NingXia Red drinks for nutrients and the afternoon slump, a motivation oil blend when I feel blah and Lavender or Peace & Calming for good nights sleep – just to name a few!! )

5) I have an issue with staying on task!! I may get a lot done in a day but its definitley sporaticly done ( NOW I use a Focus Blend of oils I carry in a roll on (and diffuse if home) to keep me focused and on task)

Other ways we are now using or starting to use Essential Oils in our home:

Fighting off cold viruses
Helping us breathe if we get stuffy
Relaxing at bedtime or if had bad day at work
Homemade personal care products, such as lotions and perfumes

Essential oils are so versatile as most of them can be used for multiple applications. As their popularity continues to increase, more studies have come out validating many of the claims made by users. More people are beginning to recognize that these oils can be used as healthy alternatives for any number of products.  

Young Living Difference

Are all Essential Oil the same? Can I use any brand of Essential Oils?

As a consumer you cna use any brand of Essential Oils you like BUT like anything else, make sure you do your homework! As their popularity increases, so does the number of people looking to get in on the popularity. There are honest, quality companies out there but I am sure there are those looking to pass off something thats looks like an oil that actually isnt.

I have done my own research and have been using Essential Oils for couple of years and the brand of my choice is Young Living and here is why:

Where it comes from

One of the most important things in the journey to healthy living is that it’s not just what something is. It's where it comes from, how it’s grown, and how it’s processed! Whether it’s blueberries fresh from the farm, or cows on green pasture, or organic clothing, the source matters. Why not care about where these oils, which are being used for so many things, come from?

Young Living sets thir standards high to ensure the purity of their oils. They actually own their own farms and distilleries around the world and follow a stringent process.  They are the only brand of oils that have the Seed to Seal certification. Seed to Seal is the highest standards for planting, harvesting, and distilling on the farms they own and this process ensures they are pure and unadulterated from the time the seeds are planted until the time it get to customers in their bottles!!

Young Living offers Big, Friendly Community

As a Young Living member, you automatically become a member of a big oily family that will give you all the support and advice you need! It’s a wonderful feeling to know you have the help and reassurance of a generous and caring community experts and lifelong users.

Whether you’ve been using them for years or are just getting started, you can always reach out to our close-knit community for their advice and expertise! Everyone who signs up gets a direct line to me to ask any question, any time, or even just to say hi!

No Other Essential Oils Company Offers Such A Great-Value And Wide Range Of Products To Get You Started

The Young Living Premium Starter Kit contains your everyday staple oils which are all the oils and equipment you want to have on hand for a variety of situations. There’s an excellent user guide, too, which will help you understand how to use everything contained in the kit. There is even a great mobile app you can purchase for quick reference to what oils to use and when.

The Premium Starter Kit is what I started with to start me on my journey of putting less chemicals in my body and I am so happy I did! With Young Living, once you buy the Premium Starter Kit, you automatically become a “wholesale member” of Young Living. This means you can continue to buy other Young Living products for a huge 24% discount off the retail price! You’re under zero obligation to buy any other products as a wholesale member, but if you do, you get 24% off!

As a born saver– I’ll be the first to admit – I had sticker shock when I looked at some of these oils, especially some of the rare kinds that can cost $50+ for a small bottle. BUT typical use is only a few drops at a time so a single bottle should last you for months, if not longer. Also depending on what you use them for, they may potentially replace something that’s even pricier if you really break it down. An example would be a bottle of natural cleaner. A natural cleaner can run as anywhere from $5 and up , or we can use our $35 bottle of essential oil to make 20 equivalent bottles of cleaner at home!. And of course, once you buy a starter kit, you get about 24% off everything!
