December FREE STUFF!

Each month, Young Living offers free items you can receive with your order, just by ordering the stuff you would usually get! They have different rewards each month, and for the rest of 2015, one of the free things offered each month will be a 15ml bottle of oil!! I know I am a little late this month posting about the rewards, but this month has got to be the best free gift I have seen yet- you can get 2 bottles of oil, 30 ER points, AND an Everyday Oils Collection!!!!!!! This is the same set of oils that you got in your Premium Starter Kit! WOW!!! The total value of this month’s 300 PV promotion is over $250! Why not replace some of your oils you have used up, buy a few gifts, try a new supplement, and before you know it, you will get back almost as much as you have spent in FREE oils!!! I am so excited about this month’s promotion! You might want to hurry and place your order, because one of the items that was offered at the beginning of the month as part of the promotion has already ran out, so it was replaced with the 30 ER points. Don’t wait until the Everyday Oils kit is gone, too! :O

The gifts you will get with your order depend on how much PV you order each month. PV stands for Product Volume. Each item Young Living sells has a PV. The item’s PV is usually equivalent to the dollar amount of the item if it is a consumable (like oils or lotions). Some things have less PV than dollar amount, like diffusers. When you are viewing an item on the website, or in the product guide, the PV for each item is listed by the price. The free rewards items you can get each month start when your order is 190 PV. For me, this is not very hard to reach! :DThe reward tiers are 190, 250, and 300 PV. Sometimes the value of the rewards is over $100!!!!! When you place your order, the rewards you qualify for will automatically be added to your order, you do not need to add them to your cart, or put in any codes. You are also eligible to earn the rewards both using the Quick Order or Essential Rewards ordering! It’s that easy! Did I mention I love free stuff?

Try DIY Tuesday: Roll-On Sinus Buster!

Roll On Sinus Buster graphic

I have to say, this specific combination of oils is what totally convinced me that Essential Oils are the real deal! When I first learned about Young Living at an Essential Oils 101 class, I learned many uses for the oils that come in the Premium Starter Kit, but this combination was most interesting to me- Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint. The magical combination of these three, applied to your sinus areas on your face, as well as the back of your neck help with healthy sinus and nasal passage function during those trying times of year.

Here is a little more about each oil and what they can do:

  • Lemon includes naturally occuring constituent limonene (look up limonene in a Google search and read about how amazing it is for our bodies!). Lemon contains D-limonene, an antioxidant that has been linked to healthy immune system function.
  • Lavender is the “Swiss Army Knife” of Essential Oils and has at least 1000 uses! Adding it to lemon and peppermint just makes it all the better. Fun fact: Lavender can make a refreshing nasal irrigation rinse!
  • Peppermint supports focus and healthy cognitive function, supports the body’s ability to regulate it’s natural immune response, and supports the body’s respiratory system.

After I tried it for myself, I was amazed at how fast the oils work, as well as how long the effects of the oils last! Prior to using oils, I was stuck using traditional treatments to combat my sinus irritations every single day, and not just during the bad times of the year. After finding this oil blend, I have found success using safe, natural, plant-based oils that give me the relief I needed, AND I felt alert and ready for the day- I haven’t looked back since!

Try DIY Tuesday: After-Sun Soothing Spray

After sun spray graphicLiving in Arizona my whole life, you would think I would be smart enough to ALWAYS apply sunscreen before going outside, or reapply after being out for a while. Well, sometimes it just doesn’t happen because I either forgot, or didn’t think I was going to be out that long, or some other lame excuse. Well, later you pay for that mistake, with a nasty, red, annoying and painful sunburn! Lately this has been happening too often, and something needed to be done. I found a great solution that is all-natural, safe for kids, and feels great! Making this After-Sun spray took all of 5 minutes, and that includes rounding up the ingredients! 😛 You will never use plain aloe vera gel again! Continue reading

Lavender: The Swiss Army Knife of Oils

Lavender graphic newOne of the oils that come in the Everyday Oils kit from Young Living is Lavender. It is one of the most popular because it is very versatile and can be used for sooooo many different things, which is why it is known as the Swiss Army Knife of oils! Not only does it smell great, Lavender can be used to help get a great night’s sleep, soothe minor skin irritations, helps support the respiratory system, and so many other things! There are a few things I used Lavender for when I first received my Premium Starter Kit that really “sold” me on Essential Oils. I was convinced that they worked and were amazing after I attended a class about them, but these results gave me hard evidence they work! Continue reading
