Do You Use Young Living? You MUST Try the Lip Balm!!!

Occasionally I need to add a few dollars to my Young Living Essential Rewards order if I want to qualify for one of the monthly promotions.  Generally it’s just a few dollars I need to add, so I like the ‘small dollar’ items for this purpose.  :)

A couple of months ago I decided to add the Lavender Lip Balm to my order and try it for the first time – oh my GOSH!  It is so nice!!!!  So I went to add them to my next order, and the Lavender Lip Balm was out of stock!!  :(  So I ordered the Grapefruit… just as awesome!!

Young Living Lip Balm

I am a former lipstickaholic turned lipglossaholic turned lipbalmaholic.  I can never NOT have something on my lips.  And I am picky about the texture!  If it comes right off or is sticky, I don’t like it.  I don’t like if it smells funny.  I don’t like if it is too thick… you get the picture.

And that is why I LOVE this lip balm!  The texture is silky and smooth, and it does a great job at hydrating my lips!  And of course they smell great!  Young Living makes this lip balm in Lavender, Grapefruit, and Cinnamint.

Anyways, I didn’t want to keep this gem to myself… next time you order, you gotta try this!!  I have them everywhere now… in my kitchen, in my purse, by my nightstand, in my makeup bag… I’m sure I’ll be finding these random places for a long time.  ;)  This lip balm is definitely one of my favorite Young Living products.

My New Favorite Diffuser Combo!

We recently had a few rooms in our house repainted, and the stinky paint prompted me to get my diffusers out to purify the air!  I needed my Young Living essential oils up in here!

I love the smell of Purification… if you haven’t smelled it, it’s a lemon-y, citronella-y, fresh smell.  One of its uses is to purify the air.

Many times I like to diffuse Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint together, and I like the floral note that lavender gives to this combo.

So when I was diffusing after the paint, I decided to try Purification and Lavender together.  Oh wow!!!  It smells so good!!

Diffuser Combo

I was doing 10 drops total in my diffuser because I had some large areas to cover… I used 4 drops of Lavender and 6 drops of Purification.

A Little Floral and a Lotta Fresh!

This was the first thing I thought when I smelled it!!  The bit of Lavender gives this combo a hint of a floral smell, and the Purification just smells so fresh!!

It’s amazing how much diffusing these oils got rid of the paint smell in my house!  After it was gone, I just kept diffusing because it smelled so good.  :)

If you have the Premium Starter Kit, you have both of these oils!!  Give it a try!

Do you have a favorite Young Living essential oil combo to diffuse, just because you like the smell??  Do tell!

(Sidenote:  I get asked all the time what diffuser this is – it’s called the GreenAir Spa Vapor.  I have several of them and have purchased them from Amazon and Puritan’s Pride – so check around for best the pricing!)

Why Thieves Spray is a Must Have for the Hotel Room!

Young Living Thieves Spray

I’ll admit, I’m pretty much of a germaphobe.  I probably wasn’t as bad before I had kids… but, well, I had kids.  And now I’m a germaphobe.  This is probably one of the reasons that I LOVE Thieves oil and the Thieves line of essential oil-infused products from Young Living!

According to the Essential Oil Desk Reference, Thieves oil is an amazing blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-infectious essential oils.  It was created from research based on 15th century thieves who were able to avoid the plague when they robbed bodies of the dead and dying.  When apprehended and forced to tell their secret, they disclosed a blend of herbs, oils, and spices they used to keep themselves from catching the plague.  Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend is based on this formula.

Many of us know about Thieves oil, but did you know about Thieves Spray??!!  It is an all-natural, petrochemical-free antiseptic spray ideal for purifying small surfaces – I LOVE this!!  It is contains the Thieves essential oil blend and is in a spray form!

My Hotel Experience

I recently traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for Young Living’s annual convention.  Although the hotel was nice, I’m pretty sure there are only certain surfaces in a hotel that get wiped down between guests… oh it gives me a little shiver to think about it!  Ha!  I mean, have you ever seen those 20/20 episodes where they go into the hotel rooms with a black light??  Yuck!!  I really try not to think about it too much… but some things I can’t help!

The first thing I do after traveling through airports and public transportation all day is wash my hands with some good ol’ fashion soap and water!!  But when you’re in a hotel room, I feel like everything else is dirty!!  I think about all the people who don’t wash their hands after using the restroom (or who don’t wash them in general), who were probably just in the room touching everything!!  I’m thinking about…

  • light switches
  • door handles (to the room and in the bathroom)
  • the toilet handle
  • the TV REMOTE (!)
  • the phone

… just to name a few!  It’s probably the TV remote that grosses me out the most for some reason!

I had brought my Thieves Spray with me, and I’m so glad I had it with me.  I immediately sprayed down all those areas that probably never get wiped down (like the REMOTE!! and the light switches, etc. etc.) and used one of the extra washcloths in the room to wipe them dry.  Ahhhh!  It made me so much more comfortable staying there!!

Now, if you have phobia of bedbugs, you may want to go a little further with your Thieves Spray.  :)  This is one area I try not to let my mind go, though… I have to rein in my crazy somewhere!!  ;)

I will never travel to another hotel room without my Thieves spray.  Another benefit is that it gets rid of the stale and/or chemical cleaner smell hotels can have and replaces it with the wonderful smell of Thieves!!

New Young Living Essential Oil Kit for Kids! KidScents Oil Collection

I had the privilege of attending Young Living’s annual Convention a couple weeks ago, and one of my TOP experiences was getting to see the new products as they were released!!  There are so many great new products, but one of the ones I am most excited about is the new KidScents Oil Collection!

Young Living KidScents Oil Collection

The oils in the KidScents Oil Collection are mild essential oil blends prepared especially for kids… no dilution necessary!  These blends have already been diluted with coconut oil and are ready to use straight out of the bottle, which any mom applying oils to a wiggly child knows is a great benefit.  The kit also comes with 2 roller ball tops, suggested for the TummyGize and Owie blend for easy application.

There are six 5ml oils in this collection, formulated especially for children:

  • GeneYus – Sacred Frankincense, Blue Cypress, Cedarwood, Melissa, Blue Spruce, Palo Santo, Galbanum, Bergamot, Myrrh, Sandalwood, Geranium, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Hyssop, Black Spruce, Rose
  • Bite Buster – Idaho tansy, Citronella, Palo Santo
  • TummyGize – Spearmint, Peppermint, Tangerine, Fennel, Anise, Ginger, Cardamom
  • Owie – Idaho balsam fir, Tea tree, Helichrysum, Elemi, Cistus, Hinoki, Clove
  • SniffleEase – Eucalyptus blue, Palo santo, Lavender, Dorado azul, Ravintsara, Myrtle, Eucalyptus globulus, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus citriodora, Cypress, Eucalyptus radiata, Black spruce, Peppermint
  • SleepyIze – Lavender, Geranium, Roman chamomile, Tangerine, Bergamot, Sacred Frankincense, Valerian, Rue

One thing to note… when I had the chance to smell these, I was thinking that TummyGize was going to smell like DiGize (which I don’t particularly care for, even though it works amazingly well!).  Nope!!  TummyGize smells really pleasant and is a completely different blend than DiGize – just thought it was worth noting!!

The kit comes in a plastic zippered case, so it will be easy to throw in a diaper bag or purse.  The ready to use oils (a.k.a. no dilution required!) make them a cinch to use – I am thrilled about the new KidScents Oil Collection!  What a great addition to the Young Living product line!!

You can get this kit and all other products at 24% below retail cost when you become a wholesale member!
