One of my favorite essential oils for staying in the present moment

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” -Lao Tzu

One of the intentions I set for myself in 2017 is to be more present. It’s easy to fall into the trap of dwelling on my past failures, and for as long as I can remember, even easier for me to stress over future events that may or may not even happen. My kids have taught me that pure joy and contentment live in the NOW, another reason I’ve made meditation a bigger priority for myself over the last few weeks.

I’ve been using Present Time essential oil blend to help anchor myself in the present moment. It’s a blend of bitter orange, black spruce, ylang ylang and sweet almond oils. The ancient Egyptians used citrus essential oils for stabilizing and strengthening the emotions, promoting peace, confidence and awareness. Ylang ylang increases relaxation, balances male and female energies, and restores confidence and equilibrium. Black Spruce fosters a sense of balance and grounding, and can open up and release emotional blocks. Almond oil adds a rich source of Vitamin E, and according to Ayurveda (an ancient holistic healthcare practice in India) it is considered a nutrient for the brain and nervous system.

I’ve been applying this oil blend topically over my heart to open up that chakra and it has really helped me to stay grounded. Plus it smells amazing. Have you tried this one out? If so, let me know in the comments!

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!

Essential Oils 101 Class at Drop Talk Live in Carlsbad Ca – Tuesday October 18, 2016

essential-oils-101-class-carlsbad-ca-october-18-2016

FRIENDS!  This is kind of last minute—so sorry—but I had to share anyway.  My very good friend, Crown Diamond Jessica Petty, is giving an Essential Oils 101 class TONIGHT at Drop Talk Live in Carlsbad, Ca.  Jess has helped over 20,000 people get oils into their homes and use them effectively, so she really knows her stuff and you do not want to miss this!  The class is tonight, Tuesday October 18th, 2016 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  It’s here at the office, downstairs in the big classroom.  The address is 6862 Embarcadero Lane, Carlsbad, Ca 92009, however you will want to GPS the Poinsettia Coaster Station in Carlsbad instead because we share a parking lot with the transit center, and if you type in our actual address it will take you to the wrong side of the building and you could miss us. 🙂  Just drive to the Coaster station and look for our big, bright sign:

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

Jess is going to go over around a dozen different essential oils, what you can use them for, what body systems they can support and of course how to safely and properly use them.  I’ll be here also, so please come say hi.  Please bring your friends, your questions and something to write with; you’ll definitely want to take notes!  I hope to see you here!  Also, just a quick reminder that the Premium Starter Kits are still 10%, but hurry because it ends TOMORROW!  Read my last blog for more details, and if you have questions, please connect with me.  If you want to grab one NOW, use this link to get your kit from me right now.  (Remember, for newbies in October, that’s 12 oils and a diffuser, woah!) 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!

Young Living Essential Oil Promos September 2016

young-living-september-2016-promo

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)

15mL Wintergreen
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.

5mL PanAway
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.

september-2016-premium-starter-kit-bonus

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…

Love, Crystal

20 Diffuser Recipes For Fall

20 diffuser recipes for fall

Hey friends!  I hope you guys are enjoying fall so far!  Me?  Well, I’m just going to have to pretend for now because San Diego hasn’t gotten the memo that it’s supposed to be fall and we’re in the middle of a crazy heat wave at the moment.  But that’s ok, because I can create my own sweater weather in the meantime with my a/c and I can trick my subconscious mind with all the autumn smells wafting through the air courtesy of my diffuser.  Yay for autumn smells!

If you follow me regularly you may recall a recent blog I wrote on scented candles and why you should avoid them like the plague.  Think cancer, asthma and many other terrible things you don’t want for yourself or for your family.  Long story short, most scented candles are highly toxic and release undesirable chemicals into the air, which you then breathe in and take into your lungs and into your blood stream.  It’s not worth it, friends.  Just say no to toxic scented candles!

But smells are such a huge part of our lives, aren’t they?  Especially during this fun and festive time of year?  What’s a girl to do?   Forego dreamy autumn scents in exchange for healthy lungs?  Well, guess what friend.  You can have your dreamy autumn scents and keep your lungs healthy at the same time.  This is where essential oils come in, obviously.  🙂  Today I am going to share with you my top 20 diffuser recipes for fall.  These essential oil blends will be sure to delight you and your house guests, and bonus, they will simultaneously support your health and well being.  So without further ado, I present to you my top 20 diffuser recipes for fall:

  1. Pumpkin Pie– 5 drops cinnamon bark + 1 drop clove + 1 drop nutmeg

  17. Harvest Time– 3 drops tangerine + 2 drops cinnamon + 1 drop clove
  18. Apple Pie– 2 drops cinnamon bark + 2 drops clove + 1 Stress Away + 1 drop nutmeg
  19. Thanksgiving Joy– 3 drops cypress + 2 drops Northern Lights black spruce + 2 drops sandalwood

getting-started-with-essential-oils-class-graphic-9-30-16

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!
