So we all know that vegetables are good for us, right? But if we eat one piece of broccoli do we feel better? Does it change our life? Are we healthier? Not really. Natural health is no different, so it’s always a good idea to try it for a few months. (At least!)
Enter, Essential Rewards. Because while you’re upgrading your healthy lifestyle, why not earn free stuff doing it?? 🙌🏻
The first three months you earn 10% back in points (free money to use on products) on the amount of PV you order on ER. If you buy 100 PV of stuff, you get 10 ER points. If you buy 300 PV worth of stuff, you get 30 ER points. Then your ER earning power goes up after the 3rd month:
4-24 months 20% 25+ months 25%
There are SO many benefits to ER:
Pick your own products
Pick your own ship date
Earn monthly promotions
Cancel anytime (really, no questions asked and no penalty to cancel!)
I’ll even call with you if you ever decide to cancel. I got your back. 😉
***Remember, Essential Rewards isn’t a way to spend more money, it’s a way to replace your toxic chemicals each month with YL products, like the Thieves line!!!***
The average household spends an average of $150 per month on personal care products, and household products (like soap, cleaner, toothpaste, makeup etc.) But where else can you get FREE products and 10-25% money back on the things you’re already buying anyway? The great news is you only need to spend 50 PV a month to keep it active. Easy peasy!
Back when I used to buy my cleaning products, toothpaste etc at Target, I’d walk in for just the one or two things and end up spending hundreds on all the other stuff that caught my eye. Being on ER has saved me lots of money because I make less Target trips now. And my necessities are sent right to my front door. Win win!
If you need help signing up for ER just let me or your enroller know and we’ll walk you through it! To read a little more about Essential Rewards (ER), visit our ER page. Thanks for stopping by!
Exciting news, friends! You asked for it and Young Living delivered BIG TIME! Young Living finally has a line of products dedicated to our littlest oilers. This line just made its debut at last week’s Young Living International Grand Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Many of the popular baby products you buy at Target or the grocery store are filled with carcinogenic toxins that don’t belong anywhere near a baby’s delicate skin. Even brands like Johnson & Johnson have admitted that their products contained cancer causing ingredients. There aren’t a lot of truly safe baby products out there on the market, sadly. Enter Young Living and their brand new Seedlings line! This new line includes baby lotion, baby oil, baby wash, baby wipes and diaper rash cream! And it’s all infused with Young Living’s essential oils, the best quality essential oil on Earth.

I accidentally let us run out of our favorite Thieves Foaming Soap because I neglected to put it on my last Essential Rewards order. Since I’m not planning to place my big order for a few more weeks I decided to make my own foaming hand soap to hold us over, and it was really easy and came out great!
I found these inexpensive glass foaming soap dispensers on Amazon Prime and had them within 48 hours. (Gotta love Amazon Prime!) They are sold in packs of two, so I got the one that had one clear glass bottle and one frosted glass bottle. I already had a a couple big bottles of Dr. Bronner’s unscented liquid castille soap and lots and lots of Young Living essential oils to choose from, so I just needed to run to the store for some organic vegetable glycerin and distilled water. Want to make your own foaming hand soap? First gather your ingredients.
Fill your foaming soap dispenser about 5/6 full of distilled water. Important: Pour the water *before* you add the soap to prevent premature foaming and a big ‘ole mess. Ask me how I know.
Add a big squirt of vegetable glycerin. This is optional but recommended as it will act as a natural moisturizer to keep your hands nice and soft. 🙂
Add 20 or so drops of pure essential oil. For my clear bottle I used about 10 drops of Thieves essential oil blend and 10 drops of tangerine essential oil because I wanted a strong smell. In my other bottle I used lavender and sage because I really like the combination of floral and herbal. You can play around with this to find what you like best. This is the fun part!
Fill the rest of the dispenser with your liquid castille soap, making sure to leave room for the pump! You don’t want to spill your precious essential oils on the counter! (Again, ask me how I know.)
Screw on your pump and gently mix everything together. Enjoy your DIY all natural foaming hand soap! Let me know if you try this by taking a picture on Instagram and tagging us @thejoyfuloilers. Get creative and have fun! Thanks for reading guys!

Hey friends! I realize that there are only two days left in the month and that perhaps I should have written this post like 4 weeks ago, but here it is nonetheless. I want to share Young Living’s promos for September 2016!
So for those of you who aren’t familiar with Young Living’s promos, each month Young Living generously gives away free essential oils and oil infused products as a thank you for hitting certain PV amounts. “PV” in this context just means “point value”, and in most cases $1=1 PV. There are usually 3 tiers for the promo, 190 PV, 250 PV and 300 PV, so the more you buy, the more free product you get.
This month’s freebies are geared towards the active life. Let’s break down the promos by PV amount, shall we?
When you order 190PV, you also get… (freebie retail value = $106.25)
This oil is the key ingredient in the Cool Azul Pain Cream, Deep Relief and PanAway and is known for its cool, tingling sensation. It’s great for the muscles after you’ve been lifting weights or lugging around heavy children.
Panaway is one of my favorites and one that I have to reorder often, since my husband and I use it nightly in coconut oil for massages. It also helps with occasional head pressure, everyday joint and muscle discomfort, and for cramps during “that time-of-the-month.” (Ladies, you know what I’m talkin about.) This is a must-have, which is why it comes standard in the Premium Starter Kit, but that little 5 ml won’t last you forever and it is one of the pricier oils, so the fact that it’s free this month is kind of amazing.
15mL Oregano (ER orders only)
Oregano is a fantastic support for the immune system. I like to put Oregano Vitality in veggie capsules when I am feeling a little under the weather, and it is a must for my immune boosting roll-on blend. Note: This one is only free if the order is done on your Essential Rewards (ER) order. (Essential Rewards is a subscription service in which you earn points back on your orders which you can exchange for even more free product.) When you order 250PV, you also get… (freebie retail value $137.50)
the 190PV promos, plus… 5mL Northern Lights Black Spruce
Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil comes from Young Living’s new Northern Lights farm in British Columbia, Canada. It has an amazingly rich, woodsy aroma that is invigorating but also grounding. My kids think it smells like Christmas trees, and I would say that’s a fair assessment. So if you have a fake tree in your house and you miss that glorious smell, put this in your diffuser! It’s the best thing ever! 300PV (freebie retail value = $183.22)
You get the 250PV promos, plus… Ortho Sport Massage Oil
I actually just tried this product for the first time a couple weeks ago. My husband and I make our own massage oil from coconut oil and PanAway, which we’ve been fine with, and the only reason I ended up trying this was because I got it for free in this month’s promo. Anyway, GUYS, this stuff is AMAZING. This massage oil is packed with powerful oils including Wintergreen, Peppermint, Thyme, and Oregano to relieve muscles from a tough workout or even a sore back from sitting at a desk all day. As well as our DIY PanAway coconut oil concoction works, I think we’ve just found a replacement. The pump bottle is really convenient for massages, and it doesn’t feel terribly greasy on the skin. Plus, a little goes a long way, so we’ve barely put it a dent in it even though we’ve been using it a ton!
So those are the September 2016 promos! Additionally, if you are brand spankin new and haven’t ordered a Premium Starter Kit yet, this would be an excellent time to hop on the train because brand new wholesale members signing up this month will also receive a free bottle of Thieves laundry detergent with their kits. That’s pretty awesome, right?! Young Living isn’t just essential oils. Young Living has tons of essential oil infused products that can replace the toxic things that may be lurking in your home currently.
Now, if you are brand new and wanting to grab your kit, you can still qualify for the above promos in addition to your free laundry detergent if you want by adding an additional 90, 150 or 200 PV to your Premium Starter Kit (PSK) order. PSKs are worth 100 PV, and hitting those promos by replacing what you’re currently using with YL products is easy to do. I get all of my toothpaste, face wash, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, body wash, hand soap, even my dietary supplements through Young Living. It’s amazing stuff. Do you have questions for me? Please feel free to connect with me through any of my social media accounts, listed below, or give me a call if you want. I could talk oils all day. Thanks for reading, friends! Until next time…

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you’re enjoying the second day of fall as much as I am! I have been at the Carlsbad office playing with fun fall scents in my diffuser this morning, and now I totally want a pumpkin spice latte or apple pie or something, ha! Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post to let my local friends know about a live event I am doing one week from today, here at Drop Talk Live in Carlsbad, Ca. We are right by the Carlsbad Poinsettia Coaster Station, and we actually share a parking lot with them. You can see our big, bright Drop Talk Live sign from the parking lot. 🙂 (Drop Talk is the name of one of our oil education groups on Facebook, in case you’re wondering!)
Next Friday, September 30th, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. I will be teaching a class on the basics of essential oils. I’ll be explaining what essential oils are, where essential oils come from, the 3 ways you can use essential oils, basic essential oil safety and finally, I will be going through 11 of the most popular essential oils and what they can do for you. We’ll discuss how essential oils can benefit you and your family through supporting health and emotional well being. We’ll talk about essential oils for restful sleep, oils for using after exercise, essential oils for increasing energy and mental alertness, essential oils for supporting the immune system, essential oils for helping you enjoy the outdoors when the Santa Ana winds strike, essential oils for supporting healthy weight, essential oils for stress management and so much more. This is going to be a jam-packed 2 hours of essential oil education, so if you are anywhere near Carlsbad, Ca then please come! North County, Orange County, San Diego County, I am talking to you! 🙂
We are located at 6862 Embarcadero Ln, Carlsbad, Ca 92011. The event is from 6-8 p.m. and is adults only. (If you have a baby in arms or in a sling, that’s ok.) If you want to use your GPS to get here then use the address of the Carlsbad Poinsettia Coaster Station to get here so that you arrive on the correct side of the building; as I mentioned, we share a parking lot with the transit center. Once you park, head over to the 3 story buildings right behind you, and you will see our big, bright Drop Talk Live sign.
So far we have people coming from Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad, Encinitas, San Marcos and Valley Center. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. If you’re new around here, I am Crystal Silvas, the girl behind the scenes here at thejoyfuloilers.com. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by cell phone at (760) 658-0655 or through any of my social media accounts, which will be linked to below. I really hope to connect with you in person! We are going to have a great night, and I’ll have some fun surprises up my sleeve, so definitely come! See you soon, friends!

Happy first day of fall, friend! I don’t know about you, but we have been so ready for this for a while!

My heart is overflowing with joy and gratitude looking forward to the coming months. I really love this time of year, and to celebrate I am having a one day special for today, Thursday September 22nd, 2016. By the way, this is available worldwide.

If you’re like most people, you probably want white teeth and you’re probably not aware of how toxic toothpaste is. This is a pretty big deal because—while toothpaste isn’t meant to be eaten—swallowing small amounts here and there does happen to the best of us, even if we think we’ve rinsed thoroughly. It also trickles down your throat in small amounts straight to your bloodstream, and that can’t really be avoided. Toothpaste is regulated as a cosmetic and safety testing for cosmetic products can be pretty lax, unfortunately. It is not uncommon to find harmful ingredients lurking in your personal care products, even in your toothpaste and teeth whitening products.
Your typical toothpaste from the store contains nasty things like triclosan, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, fluoride, Propolyene Glycol, Diethanolamine (DEA), microbeads and other undesirables. These toxic chemicals have been linked to bone disorders, antibiotic resistance, numerous types of Cancer, Alzheimers, migraine headaches, gastrointestinal disorders, damage to brain tissue, organ tissue toxicity and this scary list goes on and on and on. Teeth whitening products are also bad for your health and can actually damage your gums and tooth enamel leading to gum disorders and severe pain. It’s best to avoid these toxins, but don’t worry, you can still have white teeth!
My family uses Young Living’s Thieves Aromabright toothpaste, which we love because it doesn’t contain fluoride, SLS, Triclosan, artificial sweeteners, colors or anything else. It has a coconut oil and baking soda base and combines the power of cinnamon, peppermint and spearmint essential oils.
Supports healthy-looking gums and teeth with naturally derived ingredients.
Provides long-lasting fresh breath.
Provides a refreshing minty taste with 100 percent pure essential oils.
Contains no sulfates, synthetic dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives.
Some oily friends of mine shared that if you add a drop of Young Living orange essential oil to the top of your toothpaste before you brush it helps whiten your teeth even more, so I’ve been doing this for a couple of weeks now. I regrettably didn’t think to take a “before picture” but my husband has said my teeth are looking whiter, and they definitely feel cleaner and smoother. It’s even removing those stubborn stains from all of those pumpkin spice lattes, and I’m not even having to put bleach in my mouth. Thieves Aromabright + Orange EO for the win! 🙂
Young Living has a whole line of oral care products, including Thieves mouthwash, Thieves dental floss and several kinds of toothpaste to choose from. They even have kids’ toothpaste, but I haven’t ordered it because my kiddos like the Thieves Aromabright just fine, and since it doesn’t have any scary ingredients in it, I’m totally ok with them using it.
Have you tried any of Young Living’s oral care products? Which ones do you like the best? Let me know in the comments, and if you have any questions for me, let’s chat. You can reach me through any of my social media accounts, listed below. Want to get Thieves toothpaste at 24% off?
