Simple, Practical Ways to Use Essential Oils in Your Everyday Life


The words ‘simple’ and ‘practical’ are music to this mama’s ears!  The first question I asked myself after my starter kit arrived was, “now what?”  I had this beautiful array of essential oils but still felt somewhat lost on where to begin!  I bought my kit because I loved hearing what they COULD do but couldn’t remember which oils did what and how I was supposed to use them.  The kit came with a useful beginner guide but it can still be overwhelming to have a toolbox full of wellness stuff and lack the “tools” to navigate it, right?   Thankfully, my questions were quickly answered and I received some helpful tips and resources!  I invested in the community and education groups, which was the best thing I did!  The genuine, caring community within Young Living is INVALUABLE!  So my journey began…

I started with a daily drop of Lemon oil in my water to help my body detox…I recommend this to everyone!  I put a couple drops of Stress Away in my hands and rubbed them over my shoulders and back of my neck to ‘calm the storm’ ;).  If you like the smell of vanilla and lime, you’ll love this blend!  I looked up diffuser recipes online (pinterest, google) and started experimenting with different blends!  Before I knew it, I was using them daily and finding out how useful every one of the starter kit oils were for my family!  Lavender to help promote a good night’s sleep (hallelujah); a drop in my mascara to make it last longer and help my little lashes.  Frankincense to chill me out; a few drops in my moisturizer because it’s amazing for your skin!  Peppermint to help my husband’s head and belly issues and to wake me up when I start to hit that midday slump. Panaway to help relieve my sore muscles and alleviate stress after a full day of doing the ‘stay at home mom’ gig.  Digize to help with our digestion (better than any antacid we’ve tried).  Raven to help open the airways and support my respiratory system (I have exercise induced asthma).  Citrus Fresh in the diffuser because it smells AMAZING and helps clean the air.  And THIEVES.  Oh my goodness, the best immunity boosting blend out there.  I roll it on my kid’s feet before bed and it’s kept us above the wellness line more times than I can count!  Now I feel confident passing on these tips to my new members and giving them the tools to be successful!


I’m a busy mom of two little ones, ages 4 and 1 and need things to be quick & easy so I made my own roller bottle blends to take on the go!  They are safely diluted and easy to apply to the babes.  Honestly, having babies is what prompted me to take a good, hard look into the scary world of toxins and chemicals.  I’m so grateful I started learning more about what goes IN and ON my body and how it can positively or negatively impact myself and my kids!  Have you looked into this?  I had no idea how bad the side effects of synthetics/chemicals could be; the research is pretty astounding. (check out ewg.org & download the Think Dirty app)  We’ve replaced a lot of the products we were using with natural stuff, without harsh chemicals.  Young Living has a great line of cleaning and personal care products to help switch over to safer options.  In the 25 yrs they’ve been in business, they’ve also created products for pets, babies and a non-toxic make-up line.  I don’t have time to run to a bunch of different places for our stuff, so Young Living has become our one-stop shop, delivered to our door with 2 day shipping, like our beloved Amazon 😉  We replaced store bought hand soap with DIY foaming hand soap (Dr. Bronner’s, water and oils; super easy) and some personal care items using our essential oils.  I’d love to share my recipes–there really are a million and one uses!  My goal is to make it simple for you because that’s what helped me–one drop at a time and not being afraid of what I didn’t know. The key is CONSISTENCY.  Keep your oils within eyesight and use them often!  I’ve found that amazing benefits come from consistent use.


Since we started our journey, a lot has changed.  We’ve been sick less, sleep soundly, function better overall and have experienced more joy in our home!  It’s not fun to feel alone in your wellness journey, which is one of the reasons why Young Living is so great!!  Our amazing community walked with me and I’d like to offer the same to you! Are you ready to grab your starter kit and get oiling?  I’ll set up you for success with a welcome package of oily goodies, including 2 great reference books!  xo Holly

Holly has been so helpful in helping me learn about essential oils. She's really personable and has listened to and answered all my questions. I tried some oils from Target but didn't realize there was a difference in brands or quality but she pointed me to Young Living's seed to seal video to learn about why it's so important. Her team does a lot of fun giveaways and she's kept me informed on the free classes they do. The oils have really changed our lives! Thank you, Holly

I have to be honest, I never thought I’d be such a fan of these little bottles but the truth is I was sick and tired of being sick and tired and needed a way for myself and my family to stay above the wellness line.

I started doing a little research and a friend told me about essential oils and loaned me her diffuser and a few oils.  Shortly after, I decided to go to an intro class and give them a try.  What I discovered was an all natural “toolbox” for my family–benefits like:

  • Longer lasting and peaceful sleep
  • Healthier looking and feeling skin (40 yr old skin, mind you ;))
  • Respiratory support
  • Better moods
  • Relaxed muscles and less tension
  • Calming and relaxing home vibes
  • Cleaning with natural products, free of harsh chemicals
  • Detoxing the yuck from our systems
  • Wonderful smelling scents swirling around our house
  • Overall feeling of wellness
  • and so much more!!

Not too shabby, right?

We took baby steps and gradually replaced the chemical-filled stuff in our cleaning and medicine cabinets with more natural, health supporting products from Young Living:

  • We ditched the toxins in our personal care and makeup products.
  • No more petrochemicals in my kiddo’s lotions or parabens in my makeup.
  • No more stressing when we needed to soothe sore muscles or promote healthy sleep.
  • We’ve found the key to doing all that and more, NATURALLY!
  • (plus we earn points back to get more FREE products. Target and Sephora didn’t do that for me!)
  • And, oh yeah, our home now smells like a spa. What could be better?

When you get your kit, you become a wholesale member and get 24% off retail prices moving forward (no, you never need to sell anything unless you want to earn money.  It’s like getting a Costco membership except instead of a flimsy card, you’ll get an ENTIRE STARTER KIT!

Plus, you’ll get a welcome package from me with lots of resource guides and fun stuff to get you started on your essential oil wellness journey!

*Is There a Monthly Minimum Order?*

No.  You are never locked into a monthly order.  We have a fantastic monthly wellness subscription program available (with low monthly minimum) called Essential Rewards that earns you points back, but it’s never required.  I joined in my 2nd month as a member because I realized how much I loved these products and wanted alllllll the freebies!  To retain an active wholesale account, you have to place one 50PV minimum order per year.  That’s it!  Easy Peasy!

*What’s In The Premium Starter Kit?*

  • Lemon – cleansing, uplifting, detox & immunity
  • Lavender – sleep, skin & calming
  • Frankincense – grounding, emotional balance, immune & skin

  • DiGize – all things GUT and digestion
  • Thieves – everyday immune support

  • 1 roller ball fitment (perfect for rolling on that Stress Away)
  • educational material and product catalog

This is the best part!  As a bonus for joining our team, you get exclusive access to our supportive community on Facebook where we share testimonials, ideas for using your oils, product launches, monthly freebies, giveaways, flash sales, and DIY ideas.  It’s the best community to be a part of!


Our optional monthly subscription program gives you:

  • reduced shipping
  • 10-25% BACK for each order depending on how long you’ve been a member
  • exclusive freebies each month for orders of 100PV or more
  • loyalty gifts at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months

It’s seriously the BEST way to get all your must-have oils and safe products for the absolute best price.  You can change your order every month and cancel at any time.  You don’t need to sign up with an Essential Rewards bundle either, your first order can be customized with ANYTHING you want as long as it’s 50PV or more. My personal first ER order would include the Thieves all purpose cleaner and a Valor roll on (my favorite!)
