Over the years now our family has really enjoyed using essential oils for various reasons. I’ve gone through different periods where I heavily use them, then other seasons where I don’t use them quite as much. This past winter I found my herbal cabinet really low, but I had some good quality essential oils in my cabinet so I used those when we became sick with fevers or colds. I had good results with them, so ever since then we have been using essential oils quite a bit in our home again.

I know you have heard people talking about essential oils. You might have a friend or family member use them, and you hear them sharing their testimonials about how essential oils have helped them. What are essential oils though? How can a tiny drop really do anything?

Essential oils are highly concentrated liquid extracted from leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other plant elements. This liquid is typically distilled to make a pure oil. If you are wondering just how concentrated an essential oil can be, it has been estimated that it takes around 3,000 lemons to make 2 pounds of lemon essential oil. That is a lot of lemons! So you can see just how concentrated one little drop can be.

How They Have Helped My Family

I read about essential oils for a long time before I decided to try them out. I’ve used them for scrapes, cuts, burns, fevers, colds, sinus infections, feeling stressed out, insomnia, headaches, a staph infection on my child’s skin, broken bones, and for sore muscles.  While I would never say that essential oils cures anything and everything, I have seen good results in my home using these oils.

~I’ve had a child get a high fever in the middle of the night, and after putting peppermint oil on him it came down a whole degree in a short time!

~Lavender has healed up a nose that was hit by a snow shovel and there is no scar, when there should have been!

~Lemongrass has healed my child’s staph infection on her face, when we had tried 2 months of prescription cream on her face without seeing good results.

~Peace and Calming and Stress Away have been really helpful to us during stressful moments. My daughter was in a stressful violin lesson the other day and she came over to me and asked for peace and calming to be put on her. Children wouldn’t remember to ask for the oil if it didn’t do something! I personally have seen calming benefits from these two oils time and time again. Peace and Calming has helped Sophia calm down during fits, which is amazing!

Digize helps our upset tummies. I use it on the children and also on Sean and I with amazing results!

As a mom of seven children I’m thankful to have these oils in my home to use on the many childhood illnesses and scrapes. I use Young Living essential oils as I know I can safely use this high quality oil on our entire family. They are more expensive than some other oils you find online, but I’ve ordered several other brands and I just don’t find them to be as good quality, so I personally stick with Young Living as the brand we use in our home.

Essential oils are not the only thing we use from Young Living! The Thieves household cleaner is amazing! I can’t even begin to describe to you how fantastic it is to hand my children a bottle of this and know it’s completely safe and all natural for them to use. I previously had used Mrs. Meyer in our home quite a bit but I didn’t even realize it actually isn’t that healthy! In the Think Dirty app it rates an 8 out of 10 (10 being the worst)!

The one bottle of Thieves cleaner is extremely concentrated, you just add a capful of the concentrate to a glass bottle and then fill the rest up with water. It ends up being just 81 cents a bottle, which is so cheap! You can easily spend $4.00 on a container of cleaning spray. This way you buy one bottle of concentrate which will last you for months!

We use this cleaner in the kitchen for cleaning the counters, cabinets, sinks refrigerator, dishwasher and trash can. We also use it as a bathroom cleaner, and we spray it on our floors when we mop. There are so many different ways to use this! It’s also an amazing stain remover, I’ve used it on our clothes with really good success!

The Cost

What held me back from ordering in the beginning was the cost. It’s no secret, essential oils can be costly. However once I invested in the initial starter kit and started getting my oils at a wholesale price, I realized just how long one bottle of oil can last! You can easily make a bottle of oil last for months. Thieves (an excellent immune building oil) can be used daily on your feet to boost your immune system, or you can use it just when your family is sick. It’s up to you how long you make these oils last.

How To Order

You can purchase items at the retail price, but it makes much more financial sense to sign up for the kit so you can get the wholesale price of 24% off on all your items!   If you are serious about using oils, this is the best option.

When you are a member of the Essential Rewards program you earn credit to spend on future orders!

The first 3 months you earn 10% back, then on months 4-24 you earn 20% off, after 24 months you earn 25% back!

For $160 you get the Premium Starter Kit. If you bought all of these items individually, it would cost you $422, so it makes this kit an amazing deal! Are you worried you won’t figure out how to use the oils?

  1. I am currently a YL Distributor but would love to purchase these for my own personal use since I’m still fairly new to using oils.
