Sleepy Dust and Oils – The Secret to Great Sleep!

Sleepy Dust and Oils - The Secret to Great Sleep!

It’s time to let you in on a little secret called ‘Sleepy Dust’ – I had heard of this several years back and just filed it in my back pocket.  Recently I just started using it along with my essential oils to help me sleep better, and IT IS AWESOME!  I did a Facebook Live on my page a couple weeks ago, you can watch my video below:

The quick version is that, especially if you are waking up between 2:00 – 4:00am, it’s likely because your body is releasing a flood of stress hormones (adrenaline) and waking you up.  Putting a pinch of ‘sleepy dust’ under your tongue, which contains just what your body needs to calm down in the form of salt and sugar, can put those stress hormones to rest and help you fall back asleep quickly.  Read more about how and why Sleepy Dust works here.

You can use 5:1 or 6:1 ratio of sugar to salt… so for instance, you could use 5 teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt for your mixture.  Keep it in a resealable bowl by your bedside so it’s nearby if you wake up in the middle of the night.

I recently realized if I put a pinch of this under my tongue BEFORE I go to bed (I usually do it right before I brush my teeth), I either don’t wake up at all, or I can’t remember waking up because I was so out of it when I did, haha!

When I combine using Sleepy Dust with using my favorite essential oils for sleep, those are my BEST NIGHTS OF SLEEP!!  Here are some of my most favorite oils to calm my body down before bed:

  • Tranquil Roll On
  • Stress Away
  • Cedarwood
  • SleepyIze
  • Lavender

There are many others you can try, but those are my faves.  To use the oils, I choose one of them and put it on my wrists, the back of my neck, and behind my ears.  Then I put a pinch of Sleepy Dust under my tongue, and it is sayonara until tomorrow!!

(If you have Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit, you already have Stress Away and Lavender!!)

Some other tips I find helpful to get a good night’s rest (I sound like an old person, but these are really helpful for me!!)

  • Make sure your room is cool.  We turn down the temp at night in the house, and it really helps.
  • Block artificial lights in your room, whether they are coming from outside or even something in your room like an alarm clock.
  • Don’t look at a screen too late!!  I realized a while back if I use my computer or phone before bed, I ALWAYS have a much harder time falling asleep.  Shut down those devices well before you want to go to bed.
  • Don’t drink too much too late – this means waking up to use the potty!
  • Don’t eat a heavy meal too late – it’s hard to sleep when it feels like you have a lead balloon in your belly!

Not sleeping well is an issue that affects so many of us, these small changes can REALLY help calm your body down so you get a better night of sleep.  I’d love to know if any of these changes help you or if you have more tips to share!!

And if you still need oils in your life, grab a Young Living Premium Starter Kit, and you’ll already have 2 of my favorite oils for sleep, Stress Away and Lavender!!

Please share if you got value from this post – good sleep is definitely a difference-maker! ❤️

A Day in the Life with Young Living Essential Oils!

A Day in the Life with Young Living Essential Oils

So many people are hearing more about and are intrigued by essential oils nowadays, it is awesome!  But I know it is an investment to get started, and many times people don’t know exactly how they will incorporate them into their day.  They want to try them, but they don’t want to waste their money by having them sit in the box!  I get it!!

So I recently did a Facebook Live on my Facebook page about how I personally incorporate oils into my day, specifically the oils in the Premium Starter Kit since that’s what most people start with.  In the video, I share very practical tips of different ways we use the oils every day!  Now Young Living has WELL over a hundred oils, so I also regularly use oils outside of the 11 that come in the kit.  ;)  But it truly is the best way to get started, and I use these kit oils ALL THE TIME.

Join me for my class below to learn what a typical day might look like around here with oils – we don’t know how we’d live without them!

Whenever you’re ready to take the leap and purchase Young Living, I would love to help you.  I offer support, access to our private resource website and community, and of course some free gifts.  ;)  You can enroll here or contact me here with any questions – I’m happy to help, and I’m happy you’re here!

How to Order Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit as a Gift

How to Order Young Living's Premium Starter Kit as a Gift

**Update!  As of March 2017, you can now order someone a kit under their own name WITHOUT having to input their Social Security number!!  Just make sure that you don’t ruin their surprise by having email correspondence going to them (like order confirmation)! **

I get a lot of questions during certain times of year (like Christmas!) from non-Young Living members about how to order Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit as a gift for someone, so I want to give you your options!  This essential oil kit makes a FANTASTIC gift, so I want to help you figure out the best way for you to get it in your loved one’s hands!

The reason that ordering a kit for someone is a little tricky is that Young Living requires a social security number (SSN) when purchasing a Premium Starter Kit.  I’ll explain why.  When you purchase a Premium Starter Kit, it also includes a wholesale membership, which is great because members save 24% on anything they buy in the future!

But the reason the SSN must be collected is that wholesale members can earn referral bonuses if they ever refer someone to Young Living.  You can even start building a bona fide business as a wholesale member!  Please remember that sharing Young Living, earning bonuses, or building a business is never required.  But what this means for Young Living is that they are required by law to collect a wholesale member’s SSN for tax purposes in the event that commissions are ever payed out.

Now that you know WHY the social security number must get collected, let’s talk about the options you have if you want to give someone a Premium Starter Kit as a gift!

Options on Giving the Premium Starter Kit as a Gift

1. Sign up your friend/loved one as a wholesale member with their social security number.

If the person you are buying the Premium Starter Kit for is very close to you, for instance your spouse or maybe a child, you can sign them up for an account in their name with their SSN.  This may be the most straightforward way to purchase the kit for someone, and you could present them with their actual kit!  They could also easily reorder anything in the future using their 24% discount, and they could get plugged into our Oil Moxie resources.  However, signing someone up with THEIR SSN is not usually possible if they are not a close family member.  If you do decide to order the Premium Starter Kit in your loved one’s name through me, please contact me so I don’t email them and spoil any surprises!  Also, be sure to include YOUR ADDRESS AND EMAIL so the kit and all correspondence go to YOU!  Your loved one can change this info once you surprise them.  :)

2. Sign yourself up as a wholesale member with your social security number.

You can purchase the kit in your name (with your SSN) and then just gift them the kit.  There are a few downsides to doing this, however.  Since the wholesale account with which you purchased the kit is in YOUR name, your friend/family member won’t be able to reorder at wholesale pricing unless they get their own wholesale account (by purchasing another starter kit) or unless you place an order for them using your account again.  Also, they won’t be plugged into an oil community with resources (like our Oil Moxie team!) or get any correspondence from Young Living since, again, the account is not in their name, it’s under yours. Please note this option might work fine if you are just ordering oils for your spouse.

3. Give your friend/loved one a ‘gift certificate’ along with the funds to purchase their kit.

Now this would not be a gift certificate in the purest form since it is not ‘pre-paid’, but if you contact me, I can send you a printed “A Gift For You” gift certificate to give them, showing a picture of the Premium Starter Kit on the front (see below) with instructions on the back showing how to order the kit.

Along with the gift certificate, you can then include the funds (check, cash, pre-paid Visa, etc.) for them to purchase the kit in their name.  I truly think this is the best option when ordering for someone who isn’t a spouse, because their account will be in their name, they can easily get plugged into our Oil Moxie community with resources they need to get started, and best of all, they can easily reorder at any time with their 24% discount, and there will be no hassle.  As their enroller, I will take good care of them and make sure they have the support they need!  (FYI – With tax and shipping, the Premium Starter Kit with the Home or Dewdrop diffuser comes to roughly $180.)

This is a sample of what the gift card I can send you will look like:

Young Living Gift Certificate

If this is the option you prefer when giving Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit as a gift to someone, please contact me and I can send you the printed gift certificate you can give to them!  Again, please note that Young Living does not offer gift certificates, this is just a printed certificate you can give to them along with the funds to purchase the kit in their name with their SSN, so they have their own account.  :)

Thank you so much for visiting!  And you are AWESOME for considering gifting someone with their own essential oil kit, it is life-changing for many!!
