Busy Mom’s Favorite Essential Oils

I’ve been using essential oils with my family for more than several years now. When any one of my kids starts to feel under the weather, they come running for my oils, because they know they help them feel better! I’ve actually been able to go off my antidepressant and anxiety meds using oils, support from Jay, my oily friends, exercise, and lots of prayer. We use oils for pretty much everything these days, and we have a great support group in our oily family. We have a physician as one of our leaders, Dr. Edie, and in learning more about HOW the oils are made (distilled) and HOW they work, I continue to be amazed at what God has provided for His people!

In this weird season where I’m feeling a greater need to be prepared for any situation with my family, I love that oils can be all I need for my first aid kit! This starter kit has all things breathing, digestion, and germ fighting (skin and internal), which are the most important to me. In my first aid kit, I take these starter kit oils and add oregano and Thieves cleaner. (Scroll down to the numbered directions to get moving.) If you join us in July, we’ll send you a pocket reference guide full of directions for use. Trust me! We’ll make sure you know what to do!

So since you’re probably here because you want to know how you get started, I’ll get to the point. (There’s more to read below if you want to!) You buy a premium starter kit so you get your wholesale membership right off the bat.  No monthly order or selling oils required! You just get 24% off all your purchases, so this is the smartest way to do it. I don’t actually know why anyone would do anything else.

When you join us, you’ll get a welcome e-mail from my assistant, Melissa Crabtree, and me.    Please look for this! We want to connect with you to figure out what to do with your new goodies. We want to walk with you on this journey to a healthier life! (You won’t hear anything spiritually wonky from us, either! God created plants for our benefit, and we’re thankful man figured out how to use them to help us.)

Why Young Living?
Last fall I got to visit the farm and distillery in Mona, Utah, and see the practices and processes firsthand.  It was so good to see the heart of Gary Young come through as it was so clear how much he loved what he was providing to help people he loved! I used several other essential oil brands before and never had the results I have with Young Living. I believe in Young Living, their incredible therapeutic-grade essential oils and their purpose to bring wellness and abundance to the world.  I use Young Living because they are pure and because I’ve seen them work.

  • Young Living has 25+ years of experience and is the world leader and pioneer in essential oil research and distillation process.
  • Young Living oils are beyond organic. Their Seed to Seal process is not a slogan, it’s their calling.
  • They rigorously test each batch of oil and bottle only what meets their highest standards. Read about their testing process here.
  • Young Living owns their own farms around the globe.
  • With over 120 singles and blends, Young Living has a great selection of oils available.
  • Young Living oils do not have an expiration date.
  • Young Living oils are safe for ingestion.
  • Young Living has MINERAL MAKE UP that I love! YL bans 2500 chemicals in their health and beauty products.
  • Young Living also has a BABY LINE for my grandbabies!

Favorite Oils
Here are some of my favorite oils, all of which currently come in the starter kit! The Premium Starter Kit with Young Living comes with 1 FREE DIFFUSER and 12 full sized bottles of oils! There are oils to help you with all things digestion, better breathing and less snot, a healthier winter, better bedtimes, happier mornings, faster recovery of aches and sore muscles, beautiful skin, and my favorite – better management of anxious thoughts.


Wellness for Home & Body with Thieves
Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. I can’t tell you enough good stuff about this oil blend.

I personally have been using the Thieves cleaner for awhile now and am slowly replacing nearly every cleaner in my house! I use it on everything, and have a spray bottle in each bathroom.

For less than $1 you can have a spray bottle full of HEALTHFUL, non-toxic cleaner for your home!

The concentrate bottle you order from Young Living only requires 1-2 capfuls in a spray bottle with water.
