Young Living’s AMAZING January 2017 Promo!

WOW!  Happy, happy new year to us!  Young Living is really kicking off 2017 with a bang!  My jaw just about dropped when I saw January’s promos.  Ah-mazing!

For those of you who are new around here, Young Living does promos every month for different PV (personal volume) levels. Generally, 1 PV equals about $1. 100 PV is around $100 and so on.  When members order at certain levels, they earn FREE essential oils.  Here’s what we get this month for the different  tiers/levels:

When you order 100 PV you get:

5 ml Citrus Vitality (Exclusively for Essential Rewards orders)

Retail value = $9.54

When you order 190 PV you get:

15 ml Eucalyptus Globulus

5 ml Basil Vitality (ER exclusive)

5 ml Citrus Fresh Vitality (ER exclusive)

Retail value= $42.76

When you order 250 PV you get:

15 ml Joy

15 ml Eucalyptus Globulus

5 ml Basil Vitality (ER exclusive)

5 ml Citrus Fresh (ER exclusive)

Retail value= $97.69

When you order 300 PV you get:

5 ml Peace & Calming (!!!)

5 ml Helichrysum (!!!)

15 ml Joy

15 ml Eucalyptus Globulus

5 ml Basil Vitality (ER exclusive)

5 ml Citrus Fresh Vitality (ER exclusive)

Retail value= $241.44

Let’s go through each oil so you can know why this is such a good deal. I mean, at the 300 PV level you’re getting $241.44 worth of free stuff, and it’s extremely valuable free stuff.

Citrus Fresh Vitality – This is a blend of orange, tangerine, lemon, mandarin, grapefruit and spearmint essential oils. Vitality oils are labeled for use as a dietary supplement and can be used to flavor your water and support various body systems. I like to diffuse it to help stimulate right brain activity and get my creative juices flowing. It is elevating, uplifting, cleansing and detoxifying. You can also use it to help support a healthy weight as grapefruit has been shown to dissolve fat.

Basil Vitality – Basil Vitality is another oil that may be ingested, if desired.  Use it to add flavor to your soups and sauces, or take it in veggie capsules to help ease occasional head pressure.  Use it in your diffuser to help ward off mental fatigue and to help support your respiratory system. Use it topically to soothe insect bites.

Eucalyptus Globulus – This variety of eucalyptus is famous for its ability to support the respiratory system. It’s also soothing to aching muscles, so use it in an epsom salt bath after a good workout. It helps to promote health, well being, purification and supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It also smells awesome; diffuse it in your home to create a spa like atmosphere.

Joy – If you know anything about frequency, Joy is a high vibrational oil and an absolute staple for emotional well being. A beautiful blend of rose, bergamot, mandarin, ylang ylang, lemon, geranium, jasmine, palmarosa, Roman chamomile and rosewood, Joy produces a magnetic energy that brings joy to the heart, mind and soul. I like to wear it on my heart when I’m feeling blue, and I like to gift it to people who are grieving. It has a romantic, floral aroma, perfect for adding to the bath or the diffuser.

Helichrysum – This is a very precious essential oil that can do amazing things. It is wonderful for the bones, joints, bumps, bruises, the nervous system etc. It detoxes, supports a healthy circulatory system, healthy skin and so much more. Google helichrysum and prepare to have your mind blown.

Peace & Calming – Peace & Calming is pretty much summed up by its name. It is wonderful for calming overactive children after a particularly exciting day. It is great for a restful night’s sleep—especially for those of you who aren’t fond of lavender for that purpose. It’s great for calming the nerves and shaking off the blues. A blend of blue tansy, patchouli, tangerine, orange and ylang ylang, this oil helps to dampen tension and uplift spirits. This one is well loved by Young Living enthusiasts and so quantities are limited to one bottle per account per month when it’s available, and it’s usually only around for a month or two out of the year. So if you want this one, you need to get it through this promo while supplies last.

As for the essential rewards exclusives, they are only available when the promos levels are reached on ER orders.  In case you’re not sure what ER is, it is Young Living’s Rewards program where you subscribe to monthly orders and earn points back on the things you buy which you can then use to get free product. If you find yourself ordering $50ish or more every month, then Essential Rewards (ER) is the way to go so you can earn even MORE free stuff and get cheaper shipping. For more about ER, you can click here.

So, are you going to take advantage of January’s incredible promos? I sure am. My advice to you is to act sooner rather than later because I have a feeling that supplies may not last long—especially for that Peace & Calming. It really is a magical, unicorn of an oil!  Well, that about sums that up. Happy New Year everyone!

LAST DAY! Get 10% off your Young Living starter kit, PLUS $25 from me! 10-19-16

last-day-41-dollars-off-your-essential-oil-starter-kit

Hey friends! Yup, I’m gonna talk about Young Living’s CRAZY awesome kit sale again, because today is the LAST day and I do NOT want you to miss out on this amazing-ness.  Young Living is giving brand new kit purchasers in the US and Canada 10% off their home diffuser starter kits, and they are throwing in a bonus 5 ml bottle of oregano essential oil.  So that’s $16 off the regular price of the Premium Starter Kit (PSK) AND you get an extra bottle of oil.

But because I REALLY want you guys to get oils into your hands, I am sweetening the deal for people who order through me.  When you grab your home diffuser PSDK through me TODAY (Wednesday October 19th 2016 before 9 p.m. PST) I am going to give you back $25.  So that’s $41 off your PSK, which is a steal on its own.

At FULL price the kit is a steal, so getting $41 back is kind of amazing, and doesn’t happen very often.  Friends, the oils in the PSK can help support your sleep, they can help your KIDS sleep, they can help you manage your stress more easily, they can help you with that afternoon slump, they can help support your immune system (which is extra helpful this time of year), they can help support your digestion, they can help balance out your emotions, soooo sooooo many good things.

When you get your kit you are going to get a cool mist diffuser, 11 essential oils (plus a bonus 12th oil for starting in October), 2 packets of NingXia red goji berry juice, 10 samples, 10 mini travel bottles, a roller fitment, literature, a wholesale membership so you can re-order at 24% off and when you sign up with me you will also get exclusive access to The Joyful Oiler secret Facebook group where I post educational videos I make and lots of great content for you.  If you’re local to me (Southern California) you will also get my personal concierge service, so when your kit arrives I will go to your house and unbox it with you and give a mini oils 101 class with it.  The oils can’t help if you don’t know how to use them, so this is key!

Young Living Premium Starter Kit with Vitality 2016

The pic above is what you’ll get with your kit, except the diffuser will be a different one. 🙂 Allow me to introduce to you each kit oil and what it has personally helped me and my family with, just so you can have a basic idea of what they can do for you.

Lavender– We use this in our diffusers every night at bedtime. Knocks us right out! I also use it on my kids’ booboos and on our skin.

Frankincense– We use it for grounding and meditation. I also like to use it when I have pent up nervous energy, and it has been amazing for my skin. I get compliments all the time, which is huge for me because I had terrible skin problems growing up.

R.C.– This one helps with respiratory comfort. It has 3 kinds of eucalyptus, cypress, really good things. It has helped support our lungs during times when we were not 100% if you catch my drift. It is a Winter MUST have, especially if you have school aged kids!

Purification– This is what I now use for all natural deodorant. No aluminum and chemicals under these underarms! This neutralizes odors like no ones business. Husband just cooked fish? No prob. Diffuse Purification. Stinky gym shoes? No match for this stuff. Oh, and it has citronella in it, so it’s great to wear when you’re out camping or hiking. 😉

PanAway– This is my go to for when I’ve been carrying a heavy child in line for hours at Disneyland, or if I’ve gone to the gym, or if I’ve been blogging or social media-ing for hours on end. It’s just so good on the muscles, joints and the back, you guys. My husband and I use it in coconut oil as the most amazing DIY massage oil ever. It has wintergreen, clove, helichrysum, peppermint, all the good things for supporting those muscles, bones and joints!

Stress Away– I used to be terrified of driving. I had 2 horrible wrecks when I was a teen, and the fear carried into my 20s and early 30s. When I got on the freeway to drive my kids I would tense up. I’d white knuckle the steering while, I’d start breathing faster, my heart would race, my palms would sweat. But then my friend showed me Stress Away. It physically works with the central nervous system to help calm you down. I put it on every morning while the kids are getting ready for school and it makes me a calm, centered mama, and I can drive without fear now, which has been revolutionary for me. Oh, and it smells like a dreamy, tropical vacation. SWOON.

Thieves  Vitality– Thieves smells like Christmas, and that’s what attracted me to it at first, but then I learned how amazingly well this blend works for supporting the immune system. When there is a lot of ick going around at school, we put this in our diffusers at home, and my kids’ teacher diffuse it in their classrooms. When we’re not feeling 100%, it goes diluted on to our feet or taken in veggie capsules. It’s good stuff!

Digize Vitality– When I travel and I’m going to be eating things my body isn’t used to, Digize is in my carry on bag. Always. It really works to support the digestive system to bring balance, whether you’re struggling to “go” or if you’re in the opposite direction and going too much, ha. It has also been incredible in supporting my husband and some issues he was having with his kidneys last winter. It’s a great oil for a lot of things, not just digestion.

Peppermint Vitality– Peppermint is my go to when I need perking up, because it wakes up my mind and body. It supports the circulatory system and the digestive system, and it is great for relieving occasional head tension (like that time I quit coffee cold turkey!) It’s also awesome for curbing sugar cravings, which has been helpful for me after the kids go to bed.

Lemon Vitality– Lemon is a great oil for detoxing the cells of body, which is great because no matter how intentional you are about keeping toxins out of your body, it’s just inevitable in this modern world we live in. Lemon helps pulls those toxins out so you can flush them down the toilet. 😉 I also use this as an all natural, non toxic alternative to Goo Gone. Whenever we go to Trader Joe’s or Target or Sprouts the cashiers always give my kids stickers, and those stickers always end up on my car windows, and when I remove them there is always sticky gunk. But lemon essential oil gets it right out, and I’m not worried about my kids inhaling the fumes. 🙂

Copaiba Vitality– This one is my most favorite oil for the in winter when I wake up and my throat catches me off guard with some random discomfort. I bust out the raw, organic honey, scoop out a spoonful and drip a drop of copaiba on it, then down it goes and better I feel. Copaiba is also known as a magnifier, so it can intensify any oil you use it with. We like to add it to our Panaway coconut massage oil. And did I mention it’s incredibly moisturizing to the skin?

This month you also get a bonus 12th oil:

Oregano– This is yet another winter staple, and one of the first oils I bought outside of the starter kit, so the fact that you get it automatically for free when you grab your kit this month is kind of amazing. This is another for immune system support. This one is great in DIY capsules along with Thieves, Lemon and Frankincense Vitality oils when you’re not feeling 100%, or if you have been around people who aren’t feeling 100%. I could tell you stories about this one, but I can’t because the FDA won’t let me. Boo.

So those are the 12 oils that will come to your door when you grab your kit from me today.  Plus you’re going to get 10% from Young Living and $25 back from me, so do it already! 🙂 Come see what nearly 2 million other Young Living customers around the world are all raving about.  Like I told you before, it took me years to cave and buy my kit, and once I had it I kicked myself for not getting it sooner.  Like….where have you been all my life?  If you are a human being on Earth, then you need oils. Period.  And I am not kidding.  Use this link to grab your kit right now and I will take care of the rest.  Got questions?  Connect with me on any of my social media accounts below. Thanks friends!

Home Diffuser Premium Starter Kits 10% off through October 19th, 2016

fall-2016-home-psk-promo

Hey friends!  I just wanted to hop on real quick to let y’all know about this awesome sale Young Living surprised us with this weekend.  Now through Wednesday October 19th, 2016, the Home diffuser Premium Starter Kits are on sale 10% off!  This is for new and existing members, so if you already have your kit, you can totally do a quick order and grab a second PSK for your office, upstairs or where ever.  If this is your first time ordering a kit, you also get a bonus 12th oil with your kit, oregano!  Oregano is amazing for supporting the immune and respiratory systems as well as the muscles and bones.

Since we got our Premium Starter kit, our family sleeps so much better and we have more energy.  Our moods have been enhanced, we have been able to breathe easier when the air is thick with pollen, we have stronger immune systems, we are calmer, we are more focused, we have a healthier way of relieving minor aches and pains and we have replaced many of the toxic things in our home with healthier alternatives.  So many good things!  Plus, we get the wholesale price on all of Young Living’s offerings, and it’s not just essential oils.  It’s non toxic dish soap, laundry soap, all purpose cleaner, toothpaste, shampoo, skincare products, after shave, nutritional supplements, weight loss supplements, pet care products, so many great products!

So why start with a kit?  First off, it’s by far the most economical choice because  you get a diffuser, 11 every day essential oils, travel sized bottles, samples, 2 packets of Ningxia Red juice, a wholesale membership (save 24% off everything) and more for just $160 plus tax and shipping.  Except that until October 19th, they will take an additional 10% off automatically when you grab your kit!  So you’re getting over $325 worth of stuff for just $144 plus tax and shipping, AND you’re getting a bonus 12th oil, oregano.  If you were to sign up retail and buy everything separately you’d be paying more than double, so you signing up wholesale is the way to go.

When I do classes or talk to people about oils, the top two concerns are 1) I want wholesale prices but I don’t want to sell anything and 2) I want a kit but I don’t want to have to order every month. The awesome news is that 1) selling is totally optional and the joyful oilers will never ever pressure you into doing that and 2) automatic shipments are not mandatory, so you can have a kit without signing up for that and that is totally OK.  Please note: We do offer something called Essential Rewards, which is a monthly wellness box that gives you points back on the stuff you buy, but it is not mandatory and only happens if you purposely opt in for it, so no worries there. 🙂

Currently, the 11 oils that come in your Premium Starter Kit are

  • Lavender- relaxation, sleep, skin, hair growth, “swiss army knife” of EOs
  • Frankincense- relaxation, meditation, cellular health, brain health, spiritual connectedness
  • Copaiba- an enhancer/magnifying oil, great for skin & hair, cellular health
  • Purification- air purifier, boo-boos, skin health, natural deodorant, great for the outdoors
  • RC- respiratory comfort, great for the lungs, a must have during winter
  • PanAway- post-gym muscles and joints, bone health, helps with occasional head pressure
  • Stress Away- smells like key lime pie or a tropical vacation and does exactly what it says
  • Thieves Vitality- another winter staple. Great for immune support and smells like Christmas!
  • Lemon Vitality- Detoxifier, cleans cells, supports healthy weight, removes greasy stains, etc.
  • Peppermint Vitality- sugar cravings, energize, revitalize the mind, great for circulatory system
  • Digize Vitality- supports the digestive system, the kidneys, the liver etc.

This month you also get a bonus 12th oil:

  • Oregano- powerful immune support, cleans the blood, warts/moles/skintags, smells like pizza

The 10% off deal only applies to Premium Starter Kits with the home diffuser, which is the diffuser that looks like a rose.  This diffuser is great because it’s one’s of the few cold mist humidifiers that offers an intermittent setting, meaning it can run a few minutes and pause, run a few minutes and pause, over and over for many hours, which is great for the terrible sleepers in your life.  (Is that you?)  This allows you to run it longer, ie: while you’re sleeping at night.  The light can be kept on or shut off.  The plastic inside is medical grade, unlike many diffusers at the stores, so you don’t have to worry about your citrus oils pulling toxins out of the plastic and blasting them into the air and into your lungs.

Cool?  When you grab your kit from me between October 15th and October 19th, I am going to mail you a bonus 13th oil, no matter where you live on this planet, and you are going to get exclusive access to the secret joyful oilers Facebook group where you will get to watch our exclusive videos and read all about your brand new oils, in much more detail than I get on this blog. 🙂  So, what are you waiting for?  Go grab your kit from me right now and find out what you’ve been missing out on all these years.  I can’t wait to connect with you, friend!

Young Living Promotions for October 2016 – How to get FREE essential oils this month

young-living-october-2016-promo

Hey friends!  Happy October!  This is one of my favorite times of the year, and Young Living has made this month even sweeter with this month’s promotions.  They have added a brand new 100 PV tier which is great for those of you on Essential Rewards.

If this is your very first time reading my blog and you have no idea what I’m talking about, no worries.  Let me explain.  Every month Young Living offers free essential oils and oil-infused products to wholesale members who hit certain PV amounts within a single order.  PV in this context just means “Personal Volume.”  With most essential oils $1=1 PV.  Does that make sense?  If it doesn’t, just connect with me and I’ll try to explain it to you better. 🙂

Usually you have to buy 190, 250 or 300 PV worth of stuff in a single order to qualify for the free promotional items, but this month they have started a new 100 PV tier just for participants of Essential Rewards!  Ok, so let’s go through each tier and the products you’ll earn FOR FREE this month.

When you order 100 PV on an Essential Rewards order you will also get…

5 ml Lavender Vitality

Lavender essential oil is renowned for its calming and soothing properties. Lavender Vitality is the same essential oil with a different label.  It is labeled for use as a dietary supplement, meaning it is regarded as safe for consumption by the FDA.  Lavender can be used in many recipes to add a light floral accent.  My favorite ways to use it are in lavender lemonade when it’s hot out and in a vegetable capsule along with Peppermint Vitality and Lemon Vitality on spring days when the air is heavy with pollen! I also love lavender in my diffuser for a good night’s sleep, and so do my 2 kiddos!

Retail value of freebies at 100 PV Tier: $15.46

When you order 190 PV  in a single order you will get…

5 ml Palo Santo

Palo Santo aka “holy wood” has been used by the indigenous people of the Amazon in rituals and ceremonies for the purifying and cleansing of evil spirits, misfortunes and calamity.  It’s great for emotional balance and helps support the immune and nervous systems.  Many people use it to help with spiritual awareness and for focusing during meditation while simultaneously clearing the space of negative energy.

plus 5 ml Lavender Vitality and 5 ml Clove Vitality if the 190 PV order is on ER

Clove is a great oil for immune system support, which is why it is a key ingredient in Thieves essential oil blend. I have also used it on an impacted wisdom tooth for its wonderfully numbing properties.  I have been using this one a lot for my fall diffuser blends too!

Retail value of freebies at 190 PV tier: $70.39

When you order 250 PV in a single order you will get…

The 190 PV items plus…

Thieves Fruit & Veggie Spray

This Thieves infused spray is a great way to clean your fruits and vegetables before eating them. It’s quick, convenient and efficient!

When you order 300 PV in a single order you will get…

The 250 PV items plus…

14.4 oz Thieves’ Household Cleaner

Thieves Household Cleaner is one of the first products I used from Young Living before I became a member myself.  It is SO versatile and I love that it doesn’t hurt my lungs or make me feel light-headed.  It’s super concentrated, so a bottle lasts several months.  It’s October and I am still using the one I bought in the beginning of January!  I like to put a cap full into a spray bottle with distilled water for general cleaning and I like to make a soft scrub of it with baking soda for tougher jobs, like the stovetop after a pot boils over and crusts on to the range!  Bathrooms, kitchens, floors, baseboards, door knobs….this stuff handles it all.

New Zealand Wool Dryer Balls with 5 ml Lavender

Ok, this one is really exciting!  Maybe you know this already and maybe you don’t, but dryer sheets are very toxic to the lungs and they’re a fire hazard.  Wool dryer balls on the other hand are a safe and all natural way to soften and fluff up your laundry.  Add a couple drops of lavender essential oil to them and they also make your laundry smell like a dream.  I would suggest to you that if you want to grab the 300 PV promo items, do it sooner rather than later because this one is very likely to go out of stock.  Many of my oiler friends are putting in multiple 300 PV orders to earn this promo more than once so that they can give these out as Christmas gifts!

Retail value of freebies at 300 PV tier: $147.39

Do you want to take advantage of these promos but you’re not yet a Young Living member?  No worries, I can help you out with that!  When you grab your Premium Starter Kit, that counts as a 100 PV order, so if you add on to your kit order until it reaches 190, 200 or 300 PV you will also get the promo items for that tier (minus the Essential Rewards exclusives, unless you join that too.)  For the month of October, new members who get their Premium Starter Kit will also get a bonus 12th bottle of essential oil—a 5 ml bottle of oregano!  Oregano is so great for maintaining wellness and supporting the immune system.  On those rare occasions I start to feel under the weather and neglect to nip it in the bud, oregano is a great one to put into veggie capsules along with Thieves to help my body heal itself faster. It’s also a great one for skin tags, warts and moles!

If you’re ready to dive in and grab your Premium Starter Kit this month, use this link to order through me.  When you order through me you will also receive additional materials in the mail to help get you rollin with the oily life, and if you’re on Facebook you will have access to our top secret essential oil education groups where there is an abundance of information for you to learn.  I like to post videos in my Joyful Oiler Facebook group with exclusive content you won’t see on this website, just for my fellow Joyful Oilers, and we’ve got some fun giveaways lined up for this month, so grab your kit and join us!

If you have any questions at all, feel free to connect with me through any of my social media accounts, which will be listed below, or if you’d prefer to chat on the phone, that’s fine too.  I hope to connect with you soon!

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!)
essential-oils-carlsbad-ca-drop-talk-live

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 crystal@thejoyfuloilers.com, 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!

How Thieves Essential Oil Got its Name and How I Use It To Stay Healthy

how-did-thieves-essential-oil-get-its-name

Labor day is already a few days away, most kids are back in school, people are getting back into their routines, the stores are filling up with pumpkins and fall decor and (depending on where you live) the weather may be starting to cool off some.  For many this time of year also signifies the start of something else, something less desirable: the spreading of germs.  Thankfully, there’s an oil for that.  Actually, there are several, but today we’re going to talk about Thieves.

Thieves essential oil is my go-to for maintaining good health in our household.  A powerful blend of cinnamon, clove, rosemary, eucalyptus and lemon essential oils, Thieves oil is amazing at supporting the immune system.  Its name was inspired by the legend of four French thieves in the 15th century who wore a special blend of rosemary, clove and other botanicals while they robbed the dead and dying.  The story goes, when the thieves were caught they were offered a lesser punishment if they would divulge to the king the secret to their immunity, despite being exposed to a highly infectious, deadly disease.  In 1991, Young Living founder D. Gary Young researched these ingredients while studying the history of essential oils in London and recounts the following about the history of Thieves:

“I must tell you that I have read 17 different versions of the Thieves story,” says Gary, “Some that claim there were four thieves and others that claim there were 40! Many of these legends took place in the 15th century, but still others put the date in the 18thcentury. The formulas also varied from one story to the next, but through my research, I was led to four key botanicals that were mentioned again and again. Those ingredients were clove, cinnamon, rosemary, and lemon—four of the same ingredients that make up Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend today.

“The legends speculate that the thieves believed that wearing this special combination of botanicals provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula to the king.

“To round out my modern Thieves formula and add another element of protection, I included eucalyptus radiata, which would have been rare to find in those days.”

As I mentioned in a previous post, disease cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment, and Thieves essential oil help to create a highly oxygenated environment that is unfriendly to bacteria, viruses, fungi and other nasty things.  Thieves essential oil can be used aromatically and topically, and it also comes in a Vitality version to be used internally as a supplement.

Because of the spicy cinnamon and clove essential oils, Thieves is considered a “hot” oil and should be diluted with a carrier oil (coconut, almond, avocado, grapeseed, V-6 etc) when used on children so as to not irritate their sensitive skin.  When my kids have been around coughing, sneezing children we bust out our Thieves essential oil.  Before bed, I rub diluted Thieves on the bottoms of their feet and put some Thieves in their diffusers.  I am a big DIYer, so I also make my own Thieves spray that I carry in my bag.  During “cold season” I bring it with me to school and before my son goes into class I spray him with it.

At the first sign that I may be coming down with something, I take Thieves Vitality in a veggie capsule and I drink it down with water, or I add a single drop to my daily NingXia Red shot in the morning.  Thieves is also great for oral health; I used it to numb my inflamed gums around an impacted wisdom tooth, and many use it (diluted of course) on the gums of teething babies.  In a 1997 study conducted at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, a 90% reduction of airborne microorganisms was shown after diffusing Thieves for just 12 minutes, and 99.3% were gone after 20 minutes!

Thieves is a blend I love in my downstairs diffuser in cooler weather not only for its immune system supporting qualities but also because it smells wonderfully like the holidays.  The warm, spicy aroma goes to work on the limbic system of the brain and calls to mind cozy fall and winter memories.  I think of my mom’s famous spiral ham covered in cloves and freshly baked Christmas cookies.  When my little nephew wants his mama to add Thieves to their diffuser he asks her for “pumpkin pie.”  The cinnamon and clove really shine in this blend.  It’s a much healthier alternative to the toxic fumes that come out of most scented candles and wickless candles these days, and it pulls double duty since it also cleans the air and boosts immunity.

Thieves Vitality essential oil comes in the current version of the Premium Starter Kit, along with 10 other essential oils.  Thieves essential oil was the first oil I tried from Young Living that absolutely sold me on becoming a wholesale member, not only because of its heavenly smell but because it is SO effective.  It is so wonderful that a whole line of Thieves products was created so people can replace their toxic household cleaners and personal care products with the power of Thieves, but we’ll talk about that another day.

If you have any other questions about Thieves essential oil or would like some support with a specific body system you’re having trouble with, feel free to contact me through any of my social media accounts.  You can email me at crystal@thejoyfuloilers.com or you can friend me on Facebook.  If you are curious about becoming a wholesale member so you can save 24% percent off the retail price, click here to find out more.  I hope you learned something new today.  Have you already tried Thieves essential oil?  What’s your favorite use?  Let me know in the comments below!

Herbs vs essential oils – What’s the difference?

what-is-the-difference-between-herbs-and-essential-oils

When Young Living essential oils released their Vitality line of essential oils, a line of essential oils labeled specifically for dietary use, one of the questions a lot of people asked was “Why cook with herbal essential oils?  Why not just use the herbs themselves?”  This is a valid question.  In fact, when I was brand new to essential oils I thought the same thing, and you wouldn’t find essential oils in my cooking.  However, after learning a  thing or two I am now a big fan of using essential oils in my food, drinks etc.

First off, as I mentioned in a previous post, therapeutic grade essential oils are highly concentrated liquids extracted from the leaves, petals, roots, bark or peels of various aromatic plants, usually through gentle steam distillation.  They constitute the plant’s very essence, which is why they have the plant’s characteristic smell, and they also act as a plant’s “blood” so to speak, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the plant’s cells.  They keep the plant healthy and help fight off the stuff it doesn’t want, just as your immune system does for you.  The reason essential oil is so concentrated is because it takes a great deal of plant matter to get just a small amount of essential oil.  It takes dozens, sometimes even hundreds of a plant to get a single bottle of essential oil.  That’s why a single drop of essential oil goes a long way.  This is why you can add just one drop of Lemon Vitality essential oil to flavor a glass of water or a drop of dill essential oil in a veggie dip.  The flavor you get from essential oils packs a punch, and it doesn’t take much.

Secondly, let’s talk about frequency.  Quantum physics tells us that everything is essentially made up of energy at the quantum level, and as a result, everything you see (and even what you can’t see) has a frequency.  Frequency can be defined as a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two points.  Everything—whether it’s a person, a plant, a piano, or even an emotion—has a frequency.

Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cheney, Washington developed specialized equipment capable of measuring the biofrequency of humans and foods.  Measuring in Megahertz (MHz) he found that a healthy person has a frequency of around 62-68 MHz.  Unhealthy substances, lifestyles and—believe it or not—negative thoughts can cause dips in our frequency, and when it gets down low enough, our bodies start to show symptoms.  This is when illnesses can sometimes manifest.  It is so important for us to keep ourselves well and to keep our frequency up!

As I mentioned, lifestyle habits are a huge factor here.  Dried herbs have a frequency of 12-23 MHz, and that frequency goes up to 20-27 MHz in fresh herbs.  So the old adage that fresh is best is true!  However, this is where things get even more interesting.  Essential oils have a frequency between 52-320 MHz!  This means that—as far as frequency is concerned—even the lowest frequency oil is still higher and more beneficial to our bodies than their freshly picked counterparts.

Frequency, flavor and concentration aside, essential oils, unlike herbs, don’t have to be digested before they go to work in your body.  When you ingest food or herbs, your body first has to digest those foods, breaking them down before their nutrients can be assimilated.  Essential oils, on the other hand, do not have to be digested; their molecules are so teeny tiny that they are able to penetrate every cell of the human body in mere minutes, and many can even pass the blood-brain barrier.  This is because a single drop of essential contains approximately 400 million trillion molecules!  That is about 40,000 eo molecules for every cell in the human body.  Additionally, when you ingest a therapeutic grade essential oil, you are ingesting a plant’s concentrated life energy, complete with its micronutrients, oxygenating molecules and other therapeutic qualities.  Dried herbs and the like can lose as much as 90% of their nutrients and oxygenating properties.

So let’s recap.  Essential oils (when distilled properly from healthy, organic plants) are far more concentrated than herbs, have a higher biofrequency and do not need to go through the digestive process to work on our cells.  Please note that I am only referring to Young Living’s therapeutic grade essential oils labeled as dietary supplements, and not the essential oils you buy at the store; all oils are not created equal.  Please only ingest oils that 1) come from sources you know and trust 2) are specifically labeled for ingestion on the bottle and 3) are therapeutic grade and considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA.  Because of their Seed to Seal promise, Young Living essential oils meet all of those criteria.  If you would like more info on ingesting oils, you can read my past blog on the Vitality line of essential oils or you can contact me for more information.  To order oils, please use this link.  I hope you learned something new today.  Let’s connect soon!

Young Living’s August 2016 Promos – How to get free essential oils this month

 

Grab these oils FREE this August!

It’s Back to School season, and this August you’ll want to start the school year off with these freebies from Young Living!  This month, YL is really kicking it up a notch with their August Promos, and just in time too.  If you’re not already a wholesale member of Young Living essential oils, this is a GREAT month to get started.  For one thing, Young Living is giving a free bottle of Cedarwood essential oil to everyone who grabs their Premium Starter Kit this month, so people starting this month will get 12 oils instead of the usual 11 (plus a diffuser, NingXia red, samples and more.)  You may recall from a recent post that Cedarwood is a great essential oil for sleep support, relaxation and hair growth.

Additionally, YL is offering some amazing PV Promos this month!  Not sure what that means?  No worries.  I’ll explain.  PV in this context refers to Personal Volume or Point Value.  Generally speaking, $1=1 PV, though this does not apply to all of the products.  This is the case for most of the oils though!  Each month, YL gives you different freebies for hitting certain PV minimums, and there is usually an additional freebie for people who hit these minimums on an Essential Rewards (ER) order.  ER is a loyalty program in which you get a monthly subscription box of oils and earn back a percentage of the PV you earn.  You can then exchange these ER points for more oils!  ER is awesome because 1) you can change your order as many times as you want 2) you can change your ER date around as needed 3) you can easily cancel any time, no questions asked and 4) the longer you’re on it, the bigger the percentage of PV you earn back.  Who doesn’t love free stuff?

Usually, the PV minimums for earning Promo items are 190 PV, 250 PV and 300 PV.

This August, if you order 190 PV of Young Living products (essential oils, nutritional supplements, non-toxic household cleaning products, toothpaste, skincare products, weight loss supplements—whatever) you will get a free 5-ml bottle of Bergamot Vitality essential oil and a 15-ml bottle of Lime essential oil.  If the 190 PV order is done on an Essential Rewards order, then you’ll also get a 15-ml bottle of Clarity essential oil.  Total, this is $86.52 worth of free stuff!

At the 250 PV level, you will earn a 5-ml bottle of Bergamot Vitality essential oil, a 15-ml bottle of Lime essential oil and a 3 pack of Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier.  If this is done on an Essential Rewards (ER) order, then you will also get a free 15-ml bottle of Clarity essential oil.  This is $104.61 of free oil products!

When you hit the 300 PV minimum, the Promo is even better!  You will earn a 5-ml bottle of Bergamot Vitality essential oil, a 15-ml bottle of Lime essential oil, a 3-pack of Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier AND (this is AWESOME) two very popular essential oil roll-on bottles, Deep Relief Roll-On and Breathe Again Roll-On.  Again, if this is done on an Essential Rewards (ER) order, you will also get a free 15-ml bottle of Clarity essential oil.  At the 300 PV level, this Promo gets you $173.69 of free stuff!

Now that you know what you can earn for freeeee, let’s talk about what each of these things can do for you.

bergamot-vitality

This oil can be helpful with irritants on the lips and mouth area.  It’s also well known for lending support to the endocrine system.

Make a room spray using this oil with lavender, organic witch hazel and distilled water. Spritz around your sleeping area to have an “annoyance-free” rest.

lime-essential-oil

Lime essential oil has a light and uplifting scent. Diffuse it to encourage feelings of positivity. This oil has an invigorating and stimulating effect and is believed to be native of Eastern Malaysia. The pleasant citrus aroma of this oil may help mental clarity and encourage creativity. Today, this oil is known throughout the world to support a healthy immune system. When taken internally, this oil may provide antioxidant support and aid in weight management.

Put a drop in your water to promote immune system support and weight loss.

clarity-essential-oil-blend

Clarity essential oil blends basil, cardamom, rosemary, peppermint, rosewood, geranium, lemon palmarosa, ylang ylang, bergamot, Roman chamomile, and jasmine for an aroma that invites a sense of clarity and alertness, perfect for back to school time!  It may help with memory retention and mental accuracy.  It’s excellent for brain health.

SUGGESTED USES:

Diffuse this blend while studying for a test, then smell this same blend during your test to help you recall what you studied earlier.

Diffuse to help clear confusion when your mind is seeking clarity.

If no diffuser is around, drop some on a cotton ball and set it near your desk at work or at school.

Apply across the brow, on the back of the neck, on the temples or on the wrists when driving late at night or early in the morning.

thieves-waterless-hand-purifier

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier is a great way to cleanse and purify your hands.  It is infused with peppermint, clove, lemon, eucalyptus, rosemary and cinnamon essential oils.   Apply a small amount to your hands and rub them together or a fresh, clean feel without a bunch of unnecessary chemicals.

deep-relief-roll-on

Deep Relief roll-on combines peppermint, lemon, balsam fir, copaiba, clove, wintergreen, helichrysum, vetiver and palo santo essential oils pre-mixed with fractionated coconut  carrier oil for easy and convenient application.

Deep Relief is amazing on post-workout muscles, on a stiff neck after a long night of studying or sitting at a computer and for occasional head pressure.

Keep this in your backpack, gym bag or purse at all times.  I never leave home without mine!  This stuff if like gold, and YL only allows members to buy one of these roll-ons per month, but if you play your cards right this month you can score THREE!  How?  Include this oil roll-on in your 300 PV Essential Rewards order and you’ll receive the one you bought PLUS the Deep Relief Promo.  Later in the month, place a 300 PV quick order (not ER) and get another Deep Relief Promo!  This is a blend that tends to sell out and go out of stock, so trust.  You. Want. To. Stock. Up.

breathe-again-roll-on

Breathe Again essential oil roll-on was specially formulated to promote a healthy respiratory system.  It combines 4 different varieties of eucalyptus essential oil, laurel, rose hip, peppermint, copaiba, myrtle, manuka and coconut oil for an invigorating blend that invokes a sense of peace and balance.  This blend’s main purpose is to support the immune system and open up the nasal passages.  Can you see why this oils makes the grade for one of the top back to school essentials?  This is another oil which is limited to one purchase per account per month, so this is a great time to stock up while you can.  (See my strategy for Deep Relief above!)
