*Note: the Premium Starter Kit was just updated; however, the video below is based on the previous PSK. Please check out the Getting Started page to view the contents of the updated PSK.

What are Essential Oils

Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from plants. The oil can be obtained from the roots, seeds, shrub, flowers, leaves and trees and bring health and healing to the body. The chemistry is extremely complex and may consist of hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds.

Essential Oil's were mankind's first means of wellness and are in fact mentioned ALL throughout Scripture. The oils are very complex and very powerful which is why they are able to reach every part of our bodies on a cellular level. Within minutes of using or breathing in an oil, they can be found in every organ in your body!

Essential oils can be used: topically, aromatically, or internally.

 

The fragrance of the oils work on the limbic system in the brain where emotions are stored and can help relax and clear the mind as well as release emotional trauma. 

Common uses include:

  • Mood elevation, stress reduction and emotional support

  • Mental clarity and stamina; brain health

  • Physical performance; joint and muscle support

  • Immune support; maintain wellness

  • Extremely high in antioxidant value

  • Compatible with diversity of gut flora

  • Non-toxic solutions to chemical-laden household products

It is estimated that up to 96% of Essential oils on the Market are adulterated, engineered, or extended with the use of synthetic chemicals and it’s perfectly legal to label them as pure and organic.

The Terms “100% pure,” “certified therapeutic grade” and “clinical grade” are all made up marketing terms; there is no rating system in the U.S. for essential oils!

That is why I put my trust in the only essential oil company in the world that owns their own farms, distilleries and distribution centers and is in control every step of the way, from seed to seal.

A Healthy Mind

Essential oils are an incredible tool for supporting your mental and emotional health.  Below are a few examples of how oils from the Premium Starter Kit can support your healthy mind and emotions naturally:

  • Lavender – For situational stress or nervousness. A couple drops of lavender on the wrists, bottoms of the feet, or in a diffuser necklace can do wonders, for example, in children who are nervous to get on the bus in the morning.

  • Peace & Calming – For a comforting aroma, diffuse at bedtime or apply over heart during any kind of stress.

  • Stress Away – For any kind of stress. Rubbed on the wrists or the back of the neck, this oil can help calm mental tension.  I love to use this at the end of the day during the "witching hour" when everything gets a little crazy.

  • Frankincense – For focus. Rub it on the temples or back of the neck. Also helpful for stress, tension, and meditation.

  • Citrus Fresh – Citrus oils have been shown to uplift moods, so using this oil in a diffuser necklace or diffuser can provide a wonderful mood boost.

  • Valor – Diffuse or apply over heart and on wrists to encourage feelings of confidence.

  • Note: the oils listed above are just the tipping point.... YL has dozens of oils that are amazing for our emotions.

A Healthy Home

Did you know our indoor air is 2 to 5 times more toxic than outdoor air?  Products like scented candle and waxes, air fresheners, off-gassing of laundry detergents, fabric softener, dryer sheets, and chemical household cleaners – ALL these things are harming us!  A recent study even showed that using chemical cleaners can be as damaging as smoking 20 cigarettes a day!  

 

It is time to kick those chemicals out and start creating a better future for our families. You can control what you allow within the walls of your home, and it’s not hard. You are the gatekeeper of your home. You have the choice to make your health and the health of your family a valued priority. Below are a few examples of how we can do better, naturally:

  • Diffuse essential oils instead of using toxic candles, scented waxes, and air fresheners.  Not only will you be eliminating products that are actually harming your health, you are introducing oils which can help support your health. It's a win-win!

  • Create simple DIYs with your oils that can replace harmful products you may be buying at the store – make room sprays, linen sprays, and air fresheners with just a few simple ingredients.

  • Use essential oils on dryer balls instead of using toxic dryer sheets.

  • Use Thieves Household Cleaner for all the things!  This safe, effective, essential oil-infused, plant-based cleaner can replace just about every toxic household cleaner in your home, and for a fraction of the price!
