Now, let me be really honest and upfront and tell you this: I don’t sell essential oils and I use many different brands. I’m not sold on any one brand being the best, but I AM sold on essential oils really working and the rest of my family is, too.
We started using essential oils in the past two years after many, many friends raved about them. I buy mine off of Amazon because I have too many friends who sell them and that just makes things simpler (wait, is that the people-pleaser in me rearing its ugly head??)
At any rate, since this giveaway is about Young Living essential oils, I’m going to tell you about two of my favorite Young Living oils — both that are included in the Young Living Everyday Essentials Kit.
Thieves Essential Oil is probably my very favorite of all the Young Living Essential Oils. I Love to diffuse it when we’re sick (or even when we’re well!) and I also love to rub it on the bottom of our feet at night and then put on socks to help us stay well.
It not only smells really, really good, it truly seems to work to ward off a lot of sickness. I’ve actually started traveling with it all the time because I feel like it helps me stay healthier on the road.
Peace & Calming essential oil is my second favorite Young Living essential oil. I love to diffuse this oil (see above) — especially on a busy day or days when life feels chaotic.
I also have recently started rubbing this on the bottoms of my feet and on my shoulders at night and I’m finding that it’s really helping me to sleep a LOT better — especially when I’m traveling. I also have started using it on my kids’ feet at night, too, and it seems to make a difference in how they sleep, as well.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to use essential oils:
- Diffuse them — it’s so fun and mood-boosting to have them wafting through the house!
- Rub them on our feet and then put socks on before we got to bed. I seem to sleep better every time I do this.
- Put a few drops in our Homemade Foaming Hand Soap. Peppermint is especially fun around Christmas time!
- Put a few drops into a warm bath for a relaxing at-home spa experience.
There are so many, many other ways to use them! For some more suggestions and ideas, check out Carolynn’s blog. She has a post on how to make Essential Oil Creams and on how essential oils have benefited their family.
If you love essential oils, Young Living also offers the option to sign up to distribute essential oils and earn money doing so. I know many of my friends who do this and are not only able to earn free essential oils but also earn money — all by telling others about a product that they love and believe in. You can find more details on that opportunity here.
If you’d like more details, have other questions on essential oils, or are interested in buying a few oils, you can contact Carolynn directly at carolynn @ mylittlebitoflife.com or through her blog here.
