The Problem

The reason we love SniffleEase is for a situation just like this:

Your kid starts what you know will lead to weeks of hacking, running to the drug store, getting to the doctor, shoving {harmful and pointless} colored liquids down his/her throat all for little to no improvement until two to three weeks, when it passes.

“The Sniffle.”

I don’t know about you, but I cringe every time I hear that first sniffle because so much can come with such a little sound.

The Solution

The best action we can take as parents is quick action.

Not to grab the nearest synthetic OTC off the shelf, but to instead support your child’s body as fast as possible, so it can go into defense mode and start waging its own war on whatever has invaded your little one’s body.

Get your nonGMO first line of defense here: Young Living Starter Kit

We love to use SniffleEase at the first sign of a sniffle, especially the way kids are with sniffing instead of blowing their noses.

We have to get in there and help defend that precious respiratory system STAT!

SniffleEase is a rejuvenating and refreshing blend formulated just for kids that will get them headed in the right direction–wellness–in no time!

Convenient

The best part about having the KidScents line added to your Essential Rewards wellness box is that you’ll have a wonderful and convenient addition to your wellness arsenal at all times.

What makes it so easy to use is the fact that it is pre-diluted, which means that it is ready to go as soon as you crack open the bottle.

We like to keep the KidScents oils in the boys’ bedrooms on special oil shelves (our boys are 5 and 7 as I write this), so they are on hand any time (especially during the night).

How to Use

Take a couple of drops and rub it clockwise on their little chest/airways. I like to also add some to their back where their lungs are.

Cup your hands and show them how to breathe deeply, so they can have this unique blend going through their nasal passages as well for added support.

For littler ones, they can breathe it in off your cupped hands, but for someone like my seven-year-old, I would add a drop to his own hands and let him rub his hands back and forth then breathe deeply.

He’ll even rub it on his pillowcase before bed, so he can keep breathing it in throughout the night.

What About Infants

I get this question all the time: What if I have a baby? How do I know what to do? 

Please remember that you’ll need to find a Young Living specific resource since our oils are the safest on the planet and can’t be compared apples-to-apples with any others.

Please also watch out for people who sound more fear-mongering than helpful.

Staying on sites like Young Living’s blog with help keep you grounded and confident in your oil usage.

This is what the Young Living blog gives us about using oils in the nursery:

Final Thoughts

Getting your Premium Starter Kit is the biggest health decision of your life. Getting on Essential Rewards is the second. (Click either of those two links to read more about each!)

This means you’re choosing a life of nonGMO wellness for your family.

You’re choosing to always have an answer.

A support for your body to do what it was designed to do: be well.

Adding SniffleEase and the entire KidScents line is setting your child’s cells up for success.

We work so hard as parents and grandparents to train their brains for success, but rarely are we looking to our products and solutions for wellness as a part of that equation.

Young Living changes that mindset to one of staying above the line of wellness.

A life of proactive living instead of reactive.

I hope this has blessed you like it has our family!

How to Stretch Young Living Products

In addition to the amazing value in the Premium Starter Kit, there’s a way you can get the most out of your wholesale membership–here’s how to stretch Young Living product!

But First…

(If you haven’t gotten your 24% discount and toxin-free box yet, click here: Young Living Starter Kit)

My Favorite Ways to Stretch Product:

1. Foam Pumps

Two tablespoons of products like Orange Blossom Face Wash and any of our bath gels can be put into rust-proof foam pumps like this one, and they will last much longer!

2. DIY

DIY projects mean you get more bang for your buck! 250 drops in a 15mL bottle, and you only need ten for a product that will last you three months? That’s a win!

3. Rollerballs

Rather than putting a drop on the soles of my feet each night, I use a roller I’ve made,and it lasts much longer!

4. Don’t Go Overboard in the Diffuser

You really only need about six drops total in our DewDrop diffuser. Any more and you’re wasting precious oils!

DO, however feel free to diffuse Young Living oils all day long!

5. Inhalers

A great way to get all the cell-reaching benefits of the life blood of plants is through direct inhalation.

Not only are these inhalers amazing for on-the-go and sharing, they are also wonderful if you have to work in small spaces with others.

One thing I love about stretching product is that it means enjoying our oils for even longer! The best part-it makes sharing a non-toxic, healthy lifestyle that much easier.

Young Living: Save a Ton! No ratings yet.

Young Living: Save a Ton!

I wondered if I would ever take advantage of the Essential Rewards program until I realized with Young Living I could save a ton!

First Thing’s First

(If you haven’t gotten your start to a toxin-free lifestyle yet, click here: Young Living Starter Kit )

After the second month using oils and learning there’s literally an oil to support everything, my husband and I took a look at my ever-growing list of products, oils, and oil blends and knew we needed Essential Rewards.

Why?

1. Give Me ALL the Oils

My budget-watching husband disagreed. No, Andrea. You cannot trade food and shelter for oils.

$50 per month. Now, THAT we can do!

2. Free Product Thank Yous

I’m budgeting oils into our life AND you’re giving me some of the money back to use like cash on other oils on my list? UM…OKAY!

And you’re going to send me a free oil at 3,6,9, and 12 months? Alrighty!

And you’ll offer me more free product up to over $200 retail value each month on promotional items? Yesss….

And you’ll discount certain products, like our beloved Ningxia Red, in exclusive ER bundles? Ah!

Love like this should not be passed on, friends!

Our family has been given thousands and thousands of dollars worth of free product!

We’ve got one squeaky, toxin-free homestead over here, y’all, and we didn’t even have to pay for all of it!

I love free things just as much as the next momma bear. But I love this even more. Our boys, including one spunky cancer survivor, are only breathing in and wearing goodness!

What Makes it So Great?

Did you know that once you get your 24% wholesale discount, Young Living loves when you share the life-blood of plants so much that they will send you a $50 “Thank You” check each time someone uses your link to order a Premium Starter Kit?

(If you haven’t started your toxin-free journey with the only nonGMO trusted oils, click here: Young Living Starter Kit )

It’s true, but beware!

This is SO not about the $50!

This is someone’s life you’re invested in, so let’s make sure you do it right!

Here are the 3 easy {yet crucial} steps to welcoming someone you care about into our oily family:

STEP 1:

Get your link. If you don’t know how to do this, ask your sponsor!

STEP 2:

Add your friend or family member to an educational group like this one.

STEP 3:

Introduce your friend or family member to the person in your upline closest to you who has their own Young Living business. You can find who these people are in your “My Account” section of your Virtual Office.

If you were not introduced to this person, reach out and then add your friend or family member in the conversation. Let them know you’re ready to learn more and exactly what you need from your oils.

If each person takes these three important steps, we should never have someone who is lost on the learning curve that comes along with a new lifestyle.

Our heart is to serve, not make a quick buck, so keep ya’ heart right, friends!

Essential Oils Education

Essential oils education is key for this new, simpler and safer lifestyle.

The right education, that is.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m quite the Pinterest queen.

I mean, our boys wouldn’t eat a lot of nights if it weren’t for this handy little invention, but when it comes to putting something into the bodies of my precious babies down to the cellular level, I’m going to need a higher source.

Once you’ve got your Premium Starter Kit/Wholesale 24% Discount, how do you know if you are being educated the right way?

(If you haven’t started your toxin-free journey yet at a 24% discount, click here: Young Living Starter Kit )

There are a few clues that can help.

1.) You’re learning through a Young Living site or blog.

Young Living writes all of the content on their website/PDFs you find there as well as the blog. You can even ask questions on the blog and get an answer from someone at Young Living!

2.) You’re reaching out to Young Living directly.

You can always do the following:

-Email productsupport@youngliving.com

-Call 1-800-371-3515

-Join a live chat via the link at the Contact Us section at the bottom of your Virtual Office

3.) You’re learning from an educational group on Facebook of a ranked member.

What is “ranked?”

Ranked means this person is working hard on growing their Young Living business by continuing their education and teaching others about the oils and products.

They are constantly a student learning from reputable sources as well as consistently trying new product. They are essentially a “product of the product.”

You will know you’re in a group with viable information when they post regularly, have a decent amount of members in the group, and if, when you match their facts with either of the first two sources, they check out.

This educational group is where I share what I have learned from Young Living and my upline leaders.

The same way we want news from worthy sources, we want to learn about our oils with a high standard for who is teaching us.

Essential Oil Basics

Learn some essential oil basics to make your life easier.

You’ll want to know some of these basics to be able to get the most out of your Premium Starter Kit/ Wholesale 24% Discount.

(If you haven’t gotten your 24% discount on toxin-free living yet, click here: Young Living Starter Kit )

Hopefully you’ll have been invited by your sponsor to a 101 Basics Oils Class for your Premium Starter Kit, but if you haven’t, here are the top five basics to get you started.

1. Oil Safety

There is a mini-lesson video that goes into more of this in the Files section of my educational group, but here’s the skinny:

-Only ingest Young Living Oils {www.seedtoseal.com}.

-Don’t stick oils in your eyes, ears, or mucous membranes.

-If you do accidentally do the last one, use a carrier oil to flush it out–not water.

-Don’t put citrus oils on in places where the sun will hit it {i.e. your face} before exposing yourself to the sun. They will make you burn easier.

-Dilute hot oils with a carrier oil

2. Carrier Oils

A carrier oil is a fatty oil that basically lessens the heat of “hot” oils or dilutes them for babies, small children, and the elderly.

Essential oil basics are helpful when getting started, and these tips and tricks are great to have as you venture into this lifestyle!

3. Dilution Ratios

Boy is this a confusing topic! Pinterest, personal preference, and sharing between friends has lead to some big misunderstanding when it comes to dilution ratios, so let’s go to a source we trust no matter what: Young Living.

Dilute for babies and young children. Follow these guidelines:

Essential oil basics are helpful when getting started, and these tips and tricks are great to have as you venture into this lifestyle!

Dilute when using a “hot oil.” You will also want to patch-test a small amount if you are new to oils. We will be using the directions of Young Living’s own carrier oils as a reference:

Essential oil basics are helpful when getting started, and these tips and tricks are great to have as you venture into this lifestyle!

1-8 teaspoons is a big difference, isn’t it? Here are the questions you need to ask yourself:

  • How far do you want this oil to go?
  • Will it be a massage oil, or are you just trying to apply to one smaller area of your body?
  • Is this for a child or the elderly?

Once you know the answer to those questions, adjust accordingly.

For our family, it took some trial/error until we got down exactly how much carrier we needed for which occasion. It may be handy for you to jot down any winning amounts for further reference.

4. How to Apply Oils

Topically:

-The soles of your feet have the largest pores. You may also be interested in Vita Flex points for this application.

-Along the spine where nerves are connected.

-Along the furthest outer layer of your ear. There are other Vita Flex points there.

-Directly on the area where you need the most support.

Aromatically: 

-Diffuse 6 drops total as needed

-Directly inhale from the bottle, from your cupped hands with one drop them, or a DIY inhaler. You may also drop oils into hot water and breathe in the steam with a towel over your head or by adding a drop to the shower wall for added respiratory support or a spa-like experience.

Internally: 

I cannot stress this enough: Do NOT ingest oils unless they are from the Young Living Vitality line!

Don’t worry about 15mL or 5mL-it’s the same oil, but do please only use from the vitality line!

Rather have them grouped in graphics? Here you go!

5. Knowing Which Oil to Use

You’ll want to be in direct contact with your sponsor, but there comes a point where we teach you to fish, so to speak.

Here’s a way to make it super easy: get a great reference guide book! I love sharing this one  with my new 24% discount/Wholesale members. It is thorough and gives you the option of either learning a ton about the oils or getting down to the brass tax of it all.

However, I must proclaim and shout it from the rooftops: this guide is just that-a guide. It is never in any way meant to replace the trusted advice and direction of a medical doctor! We focus on wellness with oils, but we ourselves are not doctors!

Best Essential Oil Storage No ratings yet.


Best Essential Oil Storage

Take your oils EVERYWHERE with the best essential oil storage!

Now that you’ve got your Premium Starter Kit/ Wholesale 24% Discount, make sure you take this very important step!

Get those oils OUT of the box!

A great place to start is finding a nice way to display them.

(Haven’t gotten your 24% discount and toxin-free toolbox? Click here: Young Living Starter Kit

Here are a few of my favorites:

1.) Tree Silhouette

2.) Magnetic Storage Holder Rack

3.) 24 Bottle Tiered Holder

4.) Two-Tiered Shelf

Getting your oils out means you’ll be more likely to use them! Don’t forget to keep your Reference Guide for Essential Oils nearby!

While you’re at home, this is helpful, but what about when you’re out and about?

I have learned the hard way to always keep oils with me wherever I go!

You never know when your family will need some oily support. Plus, you’re always able to serve someone at a moment’s notice that may need them, and THAT is a great feeling!

I like to carry the Everyday Oils in sample bottles on my keychain like this one to help hand out samples when I see someone in need of a little oily friendship.

For my momma bag, I take entire bottles, so I can always have enough on hand. You can never have enough oils when out and about with the family!

I love this hard case because it allows me enough room to store our most-used oils, yet is protective of the glass in case a little foot steps on it or tosses it like a football from one end of the car to the next.

Having our oils while we’re out is so comforting, and knowing that I can help someone else in a moment of need is always a blessing!

I hope these Young Living hacks have served you well as you tackle the learning curve that comes with this new life change.

With these helpful tips, you’ll be well on your way to creating an overall wellness in  safer, and all-around healthier future generations.

Finding the best essential oil storage is a little tricky, but these options help you make sure your oils are accessible in your home!
