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!

What is essential oil? – 5 things you should know

What is essential oil?

Hi friends! Let’s talk about essential oils. What is essential oil and what does it do? I’m going to give you a run down on 5 things you should know about essential oils that will hopefully clear some things up for you, so let’s get started!

1. What are essential oils?

In a nutshell, essential oil is the vital and aromatic liquid extracted from plants. Essential oils come from many different flowers, trees, shrubs, roots and seeds. It’s usually extracted through steam distillation, but that depends on the type of plant being used. Rose essential oil, for example, is made from steam distilling huge quantities of rose petals, and orange essential oil is made from cold-pressing very large quantities of orange rinds.

2. Essential oils are highly concentrated!

It takes about 5,000 pounds to make just one kilo of rose essential oil, which translates to 22 lbs of rose petals to make a single 5 ml bottle of rose essential oil. Because it takes so much plant matter to make such a small amount of essential oil, these oils are very potent. One drop of essential oil contains approximately 40 million trillion molecules! Just so you know what that looks like numerically, that’s a 4 with 19 zeros after it. Crazy, right? I know that sounds like a made up number, but it’s true. To give you an idea of what that means for you, human bodies consist of around 100 trillion cells, so one drop of essential oil has enough molecules to deliver around 40,000 molecules of EO goodness to every one of the cells in our bodies. Essential oils are super concentrated, so a little goes a long way!

3. Essential oils are more than just a pretty smell.

Yes, they do smell amazing but there is more to the story than that. Essential oil is the lifeblood of the plant because the oil protects the plant from disease, provides oxygen and nutrients to the plant and helps it to fight off anything it doesn’t want. You can think of essential oil as the plant’s immune system. When you and I use therapeutic grade essential oils the trillions of teeny tiny molecules are quickly absorbed by our bodies and they immediately go to work at the cellular level, helping us to eliminate toxins in our bodies. Meanwhile, the fragrance of the oil works on the limbic system, the emotional processing center of the brain. The limbic system is directly connected to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels and hormone balance which is why some oils can have a calming effect on our physiology while others seem to energize us. This is also why certain smells can trigger memories for you. The chemistry of essential oil is very complex. Each essential oil is made up of between 200 to 500 different bioconstituents, so each oil will have different effects on the different people and animals using them. But, having said all that, this does NOT apply to all essential oils out there because…

4. Not all essential oils are created equal.

I’ll say that again because it bears repeating. Not all essential oils are created equal. There are 4 different grades of essential that you should be aware of and they are 1) therapeutic grade (which is what I have been talking about) 2) “natural” oils 3) extended or altered oils and 4) synthetic or nature-identical oils. Therapeutic grade oils are oils that have been carefully distilled so that the therapeutic qualities of the plants are retained. Natural oils are real essential oil in the sense that they truly do come from plants, but they have failed to distill the plants properly resulting in essential oil that doesn’t contain any or just a few of the therapeutic compounds. Extended and altered oils are what make up a large percentage of the oils you find in stores—including health stores—and these oils often contain ingredients you don’t want to be inhaling or putting on your body. Often times there will be only a few drops of real essential oil in the bottle and the rest will be carrier oil, synthetic perfume or some other mystery liquid. The kicker is that they don’t have to tell you what those mystery ingredients are because these essential oils are “fragrance grade” and their ingredients are considered proprietary information by the FDA. The 4th grade of oils is synthetic grade, also considered “fragrance” by the FDA. Synthetic oils are created in laboratories to mimic certain scents, and while they may smell nice they do not contain any of nature’s health supporting qualities. Worse than that, they often contain toxins which can be hazardous to your health. Just say no to mystery oils! This is why…

5. You should always know and trust your essential oil source.

Because of the way essential oils are regulated, you can’t always tell what grade of essential oil you have just by looking at the bottle. The brand I used to buy from my local health food store had a USDA organic label on it, but I later learned that an oil can legally claim itself to be USDA organic if the oil itself is organic but that the company can add other non-organic ingredients to the oil to make it stretch that are nowhere near being organic, and they don’t have to mention it on the label because they too are regulated as “fragrance” by the FDA. (Mystery fragrances are exempt from the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act because they are considered “trade secrets” by the FDA.) Then there are companies who have trademarked phrases that they use on their bottles, like “certified pure therapeutic grade”, that are actually meaningless because it’s not a real 3rd party certification, it’s just a phrase trademarked by the company. That means that no matter how pure or therapeutic another company’s oil is, they can’t go get that certification because it’s not a real certification. It’s a clever but made up marketing tool.

So then, who do you trust? After doing tons and tons of research I placed my trust in Young Living Essential Oils. Young Living is the world leader in essential oils with over 20 years of expertise in harvesting and distilling plants that go above and beyond organic standards. Young Living has set the bar very high for the essential oil industry because of its Seed To Seal guarantee. Young Living plants its own carefully selected seeds on its own farms and then harvests and distills the plants so that the therapeutic qualities remain intact. They are very transparent in their practices and open up their world-wide farms, distilleries and bottling plants to the public so we can experience Seed To Seal in action. I have been to Young Living’s lavender farm in Mona, Utah and it was truly amazing. I got to help plant yarrow in the greenhouse and I watched the distillation of blue yarrow and juniper essential oils. I even got to tour the bottling plant, and everything was on the up and up. What other essential oil company offers that level of transparency?

Also, since Young Living has farms allover the world they are able to offer a huge selection of essential oils, well over 200 different oils choose from and more than 500 oil-infused products, everything from toothpaste to all-purpose household cleaner. If you’re curious about trying essential oils but want more information you can explore the rest of my website or if you’re ready to dive in and buy right now you can follow this link to grab your Premium Starter Kit from me right now. Most of us started with The Premium Starter Kit because it’s the best value, saving you around $170 versus buying everything separately at the retail price. The Premium Starter Kit comes with a diffuser plus 11 essential oils for everyday use and more.

Still have questions? Just ask me! Are you from southern California? Let’s grab a smoothie sometime and chat. I’m a north county San Diego native, but I’m allover the place.
