Essential Oils

Essential Oils are a huge part of my family’s life, they have been a total game changer for us, and I wanted to share with you why & how we use them in our home.

We use them for immune support, skin support, sleep support, emotional support, ALL THE THINGS. We diffuse them every minute of the day, roll them on our bodies and we use all of the plant-based personal care and household items. I can’t tell you how much using 100% natural, chemical-free products have changed us as a family.

The best way to get started is with a starter kit! You’ll get 12 essential oils, a diffuser and samples of the Thieves household cleaner and nutrient-packed wolfberry supplement we all drink everyday, Ningxia Red.

I initially started using essential oils as a form of aromatherapy and a more natural substitute for burning candles, but the benefits have just gone so far beyond just that…I couldn’t imagine life without them!

I still very much believe in modern medicine, and this is not a substitute for that, I don’t make my own deodorant or anything 😉 and we have plenty of products in our home that aren’t necessarily all natural. But oils felt like the right step towards a healthier lifestyle for us and our kids. For example, supporting our immune systems with Thieves oil, or encouraging relaxation & a good night’s sleep using Lavender oil. I love a good homemade grapefruit scrub for the shower (which supports healthy skin & smells like a dream!!) or a homemade oil rollerball for tension headaches.

One of the coolest things that has happened around all of this is community. There are over 2000 families that have joined our community, and we are all exploring this world together. Plus, so many of these families, mostly the moms, have started booming business sharing their passion for essential oils! We provide all the training and resources you need to get started if you’re looking to build an empire from your kitchen, and if not, that’s cool, too!

Why should I start with a kit and not just one oil? #1 – ordering the kit gives you that 24% off member discount for life, plus a diffuser to use the oils. That alone is reason enough! #2 – you can use oils for everything! The 12 oils in the kit are the most popular oils and I use them daily. These are the one you’ll always reach for for just about everything!! Whether you are looking for oils to help you sleep, for natural immune system support, for energy, for focus, for relaxation, for your kids, for natural alternatives to cleaning products, the list is endless, there is an oil for that!! The starter kit is where you’ll get your feet wet and learn! The kit is also a $360 value, marked down to $165 in the bundle. No brainer!

Why Young Living and not Amazon, Whole Foods, etc? Young Living is the worldwide leader in essential oils, founded 25 years ago. The company is established and has surpassed $1 billion in sales the last several years. Aside from that, Young Living has an unmatched Seed to Seal process to guarantee the purity & potency of every oil from the time it’s a Seed until it’s Sealed in the bottle as an oil. You can be confident that each oil you’re getting is in fact 100% oil, safe to diffuse, use with your kids, and beyond.

How do I use oils? Literally the ways are endless! You can diffuse, use topically, or internally ingest certain oils. Diffusing is great for bedtime, getting rid of odors during the day, making your home smell nice, or for getting the kids to sleep during naptime. You can topically apply oils pretty much anywhere (within reason, not your eyeballs! ha) for all kinds of support. And lastly, ingesting is a great way to instantly get the benefits of that oil into your bloodstream. Young Living is the only essential oils company with and FDA recognized ingestible line of oils (vitality oils).

What should I get? A premium starter kit, which comes with 11 of the most commonly used oils + your diffuser (I recommend the Desert Mist), is the best value & provides you with everything you need to get started. You’ll get over $360 worth of product for only $165. If you’re looking to add in some items in addition to your kit, I recommend Thieves Cleaner, Cedarwood, Peace + Calming, and the Shampoo/Conditioner!

Do I have to order more oils monthly or sell them? Nope, there are no requirements or secret gimmicks with Young Living! Your kit can be a one time purchase, but I promise you it won’t be! You can also use your personal referral link to share with friends & family + receive $50 compensation when you sign someone up – but again, this is not required.

Where do you get your roller bottles, spray bottles, and other oil supplies? I shop on Amazon, and some oil supply shops like,, and
