My June Essential Rewards Order

June Young Living Essential Rewards Order

I am really excited about my June monthly goodie box (aka my Essential Rewards order!).  I am getting to try lots of things that I’ve never tried before!  Young Living has such a diverse product line, that I’ve been using their products for over 2 years and there are still plenty of things I haven’t tried yet.

Thieves Toothpaste

I ordered a tube of Thieves Toothpaste last month for the first time after hearing tons of people talk about how they love it, and they are right… I LOVE it!  My teeth just feel super CLEAN, like squeaky clean, after I use it.  One thing to note is that it doesn’t get very sudsy, if you are used to natural toothpastes you will probably expect that anyway.  If you’re not expecting it, the lack of suds might seem weird at first.  But you will quickly get used to it, especially after the way your teeth feel afterwords!

Thieves Bar Soap

Young Living’s bar soap is another item I hear lots of people talking about, so I thought I’d give it a try this time!  I’m always looking for a good natural bar soap for the shower.  This comes in several different varieties, but I just love Thieves in general so I thought I’d try this variety first.

Thieves Mints

I had totally forgotten that they came out with these Thieves Mints around Christmas!  My husband had these junky mints he bought that I was eating, and I thought, why doesn’t anyone make mints made with essential oils?!  SERIOUSLY.  You know, sometimes I surprise myself with the things I miss.  Anyways, I finally remembered Young Living had these and decided to try them this month!

KidScents MightyZyme

Yup, if you’ve followed my posts any length of time, the MightyZymes are a regular for us.  This is a children’s digestive enzyme, and I give one to each of my kids each day, after dinner.

R.C.

We love R.C.  We will either rub it on the chest or feet, and we also love to diffuse it.

Peppermint

Peppermint is definitely another staple for us.  I carry a bottle in my purse, and I keep one downstairs AND upstairs at home.  Just replenishing our supply!

Geranium

Geranium has a very strong floral scent, it smells super good diffused with a complimentary oil.  It is also in lots of Young Living’s beauty products, such as their ART Skincare line.  This was a free oil this month!!

Jade Lemon

I have been dying to try Jade Lemon!!  It seriously smells SOOO good, like regular Lemon on steroids… like candy!!  This was another freebie this month, and I am super excited to begin using it.

The extra bonus for me was that I got to see the brand new labels for the first time in person!  Beautiful!!  Thanks so much for stopping by and peeking into my monthly goodie box with me.  :)

Leaky Oils = Messy Bottles! Which Oils Don’t Travel Well…

We just got back from a trip to Florida (we had an AMAZING time!), and of course I took my oils along with me.  Here is a picture of all my Young Living goods I brought and posted on Instagram:

Oils for vacation

We flew to Florida, and I have never had trouble flying with my essential oils before (see this post here).  But on this trip, you can see from the picture above that I had some issues with oil leaking and eating away at my bottle labels a bit.  This photo was taken after our flights TO Florida.  When I opened my ziplock bag once we arrived in Florida, there wasn’t much oil in the bag, but I could definitely tell some oil had leaked a bit as evidenced by some of the labels coming off and by the strong aroma of oil!

But check out what my bottles looked like after enduring our flight home!!!  :(

Leaky Essential Oil Roller

Yeah… some of the labels got completely eaten away by leaky oil!!  :(  After our flights home there still wasn’t a ton of oil in the bag, but clearly enough to do this!!  I couldn’t figure out why it happened, until suddenly it dawned on me after determining almost the only leaky oil I was smelling was Tranquil… ROLL-ONS LEAK DURING FLIGHT!

There are several different cosmetic products I have used over the years with a roller-ball applicator, and I have learned the hard way over time that flying with them is always a bad idea.  It doesn’t matter how tightly the cap is on, I think the pressure changes caused by flight cause liquid to leak out of roller ball tops.  I have learned to either 1) leave these cosmetics at home or 2) put them in a separate smaller snack-sized baggie so when it DOES leak, it doesn’t get all over everything else.  I actually left one of my favorite products at home this trip because I KNOW this always happens!!

I mean, SERIOUSLY.  Why it never occurred to me I might have a problem with my essential oil roll-ons is beyond me!  My Breathe Again roll-on fared better than my Tranquil roll-on, but those 2 roll-on bottles were definitely problematic.  The rest of my oils (with regular orifices and lids) seemed to be completely fine, but clearly their labels were damaged!

So What to Do?!

So what can you do about this problem, if you will be flying with your oils??  Next time I fly, I will probably forgo bringing any oils with roll-on tops.  There are enough oils I can use in their place.  For instance, I can use R.C. instead of Breathe Again.

If there is an oil in a roll-on bottle that I know I NEED to bring with me, I will definitely be packing it in a smaller, snack-sized baggie before putting it in with the rest!

And the Bottles With Unreadable Labels?

Thankfully I don’t get rid of my empty essential oil bottles, my husband gives me a funny look every time I add another empty oil bottle to the basket in my closet.  :)  But I simply found empty bottles for the oils that had really damaged labels, (so I grabbed empty bottles of Lemon, Lavender, etc), and I dumped the oil from the damaged bottles into the good bottles!  Hording can sometimes come in helpful, you know?!

Have you had this happen with roll-ons during flight?!  Or is it just me??!  ;)
