We’ve gotta start with a little disclaimer info…I am not a medical professional. The information shared in this class is not intended to treat, cure, or diagnose any illness, nor is it meant to replace professional medical attention or advice. Advice and testimonies are all based on use of Young Living brand of oils specifically. Use and application of this information is done solely at your own risk.
I am not an expert, and the great news is, you don’t need to be an expert to make better choices for your health and wellness! It just takes some research and experimentation. There are many wonderful reference guides, books and resources available about how to use essential oils. Find them at places like Amazon, Life Science Publishing, and abundanthealth4u.com. Ask your sponsor for more details and which books are their favorites!
I believe that when you give the body the support it needs, it can then heal itself.
What are Essential Oils and Why Do We Use Them?
Essential oils and essential oil infused supplements help antioxidant support in our body.
Essential oils are steam distilled or pressed from plants – from the leaves, roots, bark, stems, rinds or seeds.
They are much more concentrated, and therefore, more potent than dried herbs. 1 drop of peppermint oil is the same as 26 cups of peppermint tea! 1 drop of lemon oil is the same as 16 lemon rinds!
They are the lifeblood of the plant that initiates regeneration into the cells. They support the immune system of plants, and they work the same for humans. Anything that our blood does for us is what the essential oils do for the plant.
Essential oils can quickly penetrate the tissues of the skin, and from there diffuse throughout the body in the blood and tissues
They can affect the body at the cellular level by supporting cellular health and normal cellular regeneration and by supporting the immune system.
Essential oils work synergistically with the body to support normal body processes because they are recognized by the body as nutrients.
Oxygenate the cell, support the body’s natural detoxification processes, make cells more permeable, defend against unwanted guests in our bodies. Some can cross the blood brain barrier, like Cedarwood, Vetiver, and lavender. Those oils are helpful for supporting ALL body systems - skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, nervous, respiratory, lymphatic, urinary, reproductive and integumentary body systems.
Each oil, just like every living thing, carries a scientifically measurable frequency. Essential oils have the capacity to raise your body frequency. The more you are applying oils on yourself and family, the higher your body frequency and the potential for better overall health increases. Use them often for best results.
Essential oils also carry an antioxidant value called the ORAC score. ORAC stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity which is basically the oils capacity to inhibit free radicals. When you think of an antioxidant what do you think of? Blueberries. Well, clove essential oil contains the highest ORAC value at over 1 million vs. blueberries at 2400.
So, there are a ton of essential oil companies out there, with new ones popping up all the time. How do you know which one to trust?
YL is the oldest, most trusted, most well-respected EO company in the world. With more than 25 years of research experience, we are the only company with our own farms, offering a Seed to Seal guarantee.
This Seal to Seal guarantee is the heart of YL’s commitment to purity and authenticity.
From the time the seed is planted until the oil is bottled, Young Living provides the most rigorous, quality controls possible to ensure that every one of their members and customers receives the oils exactly as they were intended by nature with as many molecular components as possible.
Essential Oils are HOT Right Now!
The global essential oil market is expected to reach $12 billion by 2022, up from $6 billion in 2014, according to recent market research. Why? Two reasons.
- Growing consumer awareness regarding health benefits associated with essential oils & supplement
- Growth in the organic product industry has also prompted many people to want to ditch toxic chemicals in their homes
An exorbitant amount of plant matter is required to make a single ounce of essential oils, yet there is a ton of demand.
Unfortunately, many essential oil companies have been looking for new ways to develop essential oil substitutes created from essential oil compounds, which results in a lot of undereducated consumers looking for that inexpensive, cheap essential oil and thinking that what they’re getting is pure and natural, when it’s not. It’s made in a lab with chemicals, not harvested from a plant.
How Young Living Began
Two decades ago, Gary Young started Young Living from very humble beginnings on a remote farm in Idaho, using a pressure cooker for a distiller.
Young Living has grown into the world-wide leader in pure, therapeutic grade essential oils (not made in a lab, but from plants!) with over $1 billion in revenue annually, with a presence in markets and with farms all over the globe.
Young Living is a purpose-driven company, bringing greater wellness and abundance to people all over the world. In fact, their mission is to bring oils into every single home in the world! In 2014, their active members and sales more than doubled!
Now we’re going to discuss the Golden Touch kit! This is a really neat kit that is designed to provide immune protection all throughout the year, especially during the winter. The oil blend formulas in this collection have been specifically created to take advantage of essential oil constituents that support many functions of the body. The oils we will learn about tonight are:
BLEND: Ginger, Anise, Fennel, Peppermint, Tarragon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, and Juniper
- Supports normal digestion
- Add to a gel capsule and swallow (DiGize Vitality)
- Add 2 drops DiGize™ Vitality and 1 drop Peppermint Vitality to water for a stimulating beverage.
- Use with every meal along with enzymes like Essentialzymes-4™ to support a wellness regimen.
- Use as a dietary supplement in water when traveling abroad.
I use this oil on a regular basis as I need a lot of digestion support. I have a lot of food sensitivities and this helps so much when I eat wheat accidentally. I put it in a capsule and swallow. I highly recommend this oil!
EndoFlex™ can help you maintain overall vitality with a proprietary blend of essential oils that support the endocrine system. The endocrine system includes the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, hypothalamus, gastrointestinal tract, and adrenal glands.
It has a base of sesame seed oil, spearmint, sage, geranium, myrtle, nutmeg, and German chamomile.
Juvaflex combines Fennel, Geranium, Rosemary, Roman Chamomile, Blue Tansy, and Helichrysum essential oils for a unique blend that works well with JuvaTone tablets and DiGize essential oil blend.
It’s a great blend for a healthy liver!
Melrose™ provides a protective barrier against skin challenges. When diffused, Melrose can help dispel odors.
Contains Tea Tree, naouli, rosemary, and clove.
I LOVE this oil and use it daily as in my family, we unfortunately have a lot of skin challenges due to food sensitivities and leaky gut, which I’ve been working for years to fix. This oil really helps to soothe my skin so I get better faster. It has a medicinal scent, with the combo of the rosemary and tea tree oils.
Raven™ is a combination of deeply soothing therapeutic grade essential oils that will provide comfort when applied topically to the chest and throat or diffused.
It is great to give your respiratory system some help, as the eucalyptus and peppermint oils in it really help to open up the sinuses and nose. I diffuse it often because I love the scent, it is so uplifting and refreshing.
It contains ravintsara, lemon, wintergreen, peppermint and Eucalyptus radiata.
R.C.™ Essential Oil is a powerful blend of Spruce, Cyprus, and three types of Eucalyptus oils (E. globulus, E. radiata, and E. citriodora). Diffuse or apply it directly before, during, or after your workout. Its energetic aroma will help you stay motivated when you hit the weights, treadmill, or bike.
You can also combine Young Living R.C. oil with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for an invigorating massage. This routine creates a relaxing spa-like experience and can even help when your day demands that you be out and about earlier than usual. Its robust scent will help you perk up as your day begins.
- Rub on your chest and back of the neck before an early-morning workout.
- Use with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for a foot or back massage after your gym routine, outdoor adventure, or yoga practice.
- Place a few drops in a hot bath or shower. The warm water will calm and soothe you, and the oil will diffuse with the steam for an invigorating and empowering experience.
- Brighten your outlook during early-morning errands by applying R.C. oil to your chest and wrists.
Now we will talk about Young Living’s most popular and well-known oil blend, Thieves!! It is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. I like to say it smells like fall and Christmas. It is inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products.
With the benefits of Thieves oil including cleaning power and an irresistibly spicy scent, Young Living offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste. Looking to make your home smell as clean as it looks? Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house for an aroma that makes every room smell more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.
- Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
- Diffuse 6–8 drops of Thieves to help create an environment of peace and security. Customize your Thieves experience by adding a few drops of Orange, Tangerine, or Nutmeg essential oil.
- Put a few drops of Thieves essential oil blend in a capsule and swallow with water to support your immune system
Put in a few drops of Thieves essential oil blend in your dishwater or dishwasher to thoroughly clean dishes and eliminate odor.
Now, of those of you reading, who are already Young Living lovers and users?
If not, then you probably fall into one of three categories.
The first, is that you’ve realized throughout this class that this really isn’t for you and you aren’t interested in trying these oils and products. And if that’s you, that’s okay! Saying “no” is good and probably the best decision for you.
The second is that you’re interested and would like to give these oils a shot! If that’s you, then I suggest you start with this Premium Starter Kit so that you can try the oils, supplements and diffuser and see if they work well for you and your family, to see if they are a good fit.
The third we will talk about a little later.
Now, I want to share with you how you can get the Golden Touch kit at the wholesale price, which is 24% off of retail, and that’s with a Premium Starter Kit!
Young Living’s oils are not sold down at Whole Foods or your corner Walgreens. The oils and products sold there are much less potent, and some are even adulterated. But Young Living’s oils are very high quality, therapeutic grade oils.
The way that Young Living has decided to sell them is through individual members sharing with others – they don’t pay for an advertising department and use us instead so we can offer you support. When you buy oils in store or online from just anywhere, you won’t get a team of support helping you learn how to use the oils. And especially when you join my team! We offer monthly Facebook classes, webinars, promotions, giveaways and blog posts so you are always learning!
You can purchase an Everyday Oils set for $163 and that would be the retail price. No sale or discount. But there’s a much cheaper way to get them and that’s as a wholesale member!
You can actually get this Everyday Oils set, plus a home diffuser, PLUS this little starter kit with extra oil in it, Stress Away, Ningxia Red samples, and little sample sachets you can share or throw in your purse, all for $160! You save over $150 this way. At the same time, you automatically become a wholesale member which means you get 24% off everything! Become a wholesale member here!
Now, don’t let the term member scare you. There are no monthly minimums or order requirements. In order to keep your membership after one year, you just need to purchase about $50 worth of products the next year. If you don’t want to, that’s fine! No one is going to hunt you down – there are no penalties or cancellation fees and you could reinstate your membership at any time.
Check out Young Living’s 6 options for Premium Starter Kits! There are the:
- Dewdrop Diffuser (great for small bedrooms and offices)
- Rainstone Diffuser (a luxurious diffuser with a remote and spa music)
- Bamboo Diffuser (great for larger bedrooms and small living rooms, kitchen, dining room, etc.)
- Aria Diffuser (the mac-daddy of all diffusers – comes with changing LED lights, a remote and spa music, and is good for larger living spaces)
Now, remember those three categories I mentioned earlier? The third category is that you KNOW you want to try the oils and become a member, and you’d like to order on a regular basis to keep your family well and healthy for the long term. If that’s you, then I recommend the Essential Rewards program!
Once you’re a member and find you’ve really been able to replace your medicine cabinet and cleaning supplies with essential oils, it really makes sense to join the Essential Rewards program and anyone who does gets a free Diffuser Necklace, this is retroactive as well.
So, what exactly is this program?
Young Living’s monthly program where you order 50 PV per month and earn 10-20% of your order total back in points AND get reduced, flat-rate shipping. Use those points as cash to get free oils!
How to Earn Points Back
When you’re with the company:
- 1-6 months, you get 10% back in points
- 7-12 months, you get 15% back in points
- 13+ months, you get 20% back in points
Design Your Own Program
You can change your order every month, it does not have to be their recommended kits or products. You can change your ship date each month, too! Can’t do it one month? Get a grace month! No contract, no fees, no penalty fees.
I’ve used over 1,000 points, which means I’ve gotten over $1,000 of free oils and products! I love the program.
