Here is what my family ordered in March for our Essential Rewards order. If you are not a member of the Essential Rewards program yet, click here to find out how you can enroll today!
What is Lemon Essential Oil?
Lemon Essential Oil is cold pressed from the rind of the Citrus Limon tree.* Fun fact: it takes 75 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil!* Lemon is great for skin care as well as for flavor, cleaning and cooking.
How do we use Lemon?
I ordered the Lemon sample packets because they are super convenient to transport but also to keep handy to give to friends and family as an introduction to Young Living Essential Oils. I must say that our favorite way to use Lemon is to just put it in our water and drink it! (But, if you do that, always make sure you are using only a glass or stainless steel container.) Drinking lemon is a great way to help build your immunity.
Lemon is also great when it is combined with Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils. I love to use this combination in many different ways. The first way is in a roll-on bottle which I use to apply the oils to the bottoms of my feet. I also love this combination applied to my diffuser necklace so I can get the benefit of breathing them in all day long. Lastly, they are great when combined in the diffuser.
What is Lavender Essential Oil?
Lavender Essential Oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops of the lavender plant. Fun fact: it takes 27 square feet of lavender plants to make one bottle of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil!* Lavender is known as the “Swiss Army knives of essential oils” because it is great for maintaining healthy skin and respiratory system as well as calming and relaxing your mind and body.*
How do we use Lavender?
As I mentioned above, Lavender is great when combined with Lemon essential oil and Peppermint essential oil. I like to use them in the diffuser, on my diffuser necklace or in a roll-on bottle then applied to the bottoms of my feet.
Another way that my family uses Lavender is to put a drop in our hands and just rub it on our pillows before sleep. This is great for relaxation and calming the mind and body for healthy sleep.
Being a mom of 2 little girls who like to play hard, I made a First Aid spray to help ease any skin discomfort they may experience. 😉
I also ordered the Lavender sample packets because they are very convenient to carry in my wallet for the “on-the-go” mommy emergencies!
What is Peppermint Essential Oil?
Peppermint Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of the Peppermint plant.* Fun fact: it takes 1 pound of raw peppermint material to make a 15ml bottle of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil!* Peppermint is great is promoting a healthy digestive system as well as easing head tension. You can also use it to add flavor while cooking.
How do we use Peppermint?
My favorite way to try Peppermint has been to put a couple drops in brownie batter and have YUMMY peppermint chocolate brownies! These have quickly become a guilty pleasure of mine.
We like to diffuse or apply topically using a carrier oil, we like Coconut Oil, where needed whenever we are experiencing head tension or digestion discomfort.
Again, it is really great when combined with Lemon and Lavender essential oils.
What is EndoFlex Essential Oil?
Endoflex Essential Oil is a blend of Seasame Seed Oil and Spearmint, Sage, Geranium, Myrtle, German Chamomile and Nutmeg Essential Oils.* This blend of oils is great for supporting a healthy metabolism and hormone balance.*
How do we use EndoFlex?
Since EndoFlex is a new oil for us, we haven’t tried it out in many different ways yet. So far, I like to apply topically to my neck with a carrier oil, I use Coconut Oil, to help support my Endocrine System.
You an also diffuse and take this oil internally. (Make sure you are always reading the labels on your Young Living bottles to ensure you are using them correctly.)
What is Stress Away Essential Oil?
Stress Away Essential Oil is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea & Lavender Essential Oils.* As the name says, Stress Away is great at reducing stress and easing tension.*
How do we use Stress Away?
This is one of my FAVORITE oils! I love the smell and because I purchased in the roll-on bottle, it is super easy to apply making it part of my daily ‘oil’ routine. I apply it to the back of my neck and massage in to ease tension, I roll it behind each ear (which helps it to absorb quickly into my system), and on my wrists as a lovely perfume. This is an oil that I carry with me daily and will apply throughout the day to reduce stress.
Young Living Lip Balm Trio
If you are looking for a natural alternative to soothing those chapped lips, look no further! This is the first time I have used Young Living’s Lip Balm and I am in love! In this kit there is Lavender, Grapefruit and Cinnamint. I love them all and couldn’t pick a favorite is you asked me. Not only do they make your lips silky smooth, they smell amazing!! Because they are all natural, I have no worries letting my girls use them too.
