Essential Oils for Home

Young Living was founded in 1993 and is based in Lehi, Utah. They sell organic high quality essential oils and chemical free home products and supplements. I started using YL oils in 2015. I honestly didn’t even know oils could benefit your body – I bought the kit because I was trying to eliminate chemicals in our house and for the aromatherapy benefits. But they have helped my immune system, my sleep and most importantly my family. I cannot imagine not having the oils in my life now! Read on to learn more about the most popular oils and blends people use in their home.

Most Popular Essential Oils and Blends

Lavender: Support healthy and glowing skin. I use it in my homemade facial serum as it is moisturizing. Also great for burns and cuts. Just apply a drop straight on it! A lot of hospitals use it to help with occasional anxiety with their patients before and after procedures.

Peppermint: Support and maintain a healthy digestive system and energy levels! Great to apply on your temples when you have a headache and this is my favorite to diffuse to help stay alert.

Thieves: Promote a healthy immune system. Diffuse often to purify the air.

Citrus Fresh: Remove stinky odors and great refreshing smell! A blend of citrus oils along with spearmint.

Lemon: A powerful detoxifier. Great for alertness & mental clarity. A good cleanser for body and home, smells fresh, can help with occasional nausea, immune system support, appetite suppressant…also add to water!

PanAway: Add it to coconut oil to create a DIY post workout salve to help sore muscles.

Stress Away: I love this one to wear as a perfume which plays double duty to help reduce daily stress.

Frankincense: It promotes a sense of calm and security, Replace your expensive wrinkle serum. This is all you need! I rub a drop straight on my skin at night before moisturizer.

DiGize: It supports normal, healthy digestion! Also helps heartburn and stomach upset. Rub on your tummy or take via veggie capsule.

Raven: One of the best essential oils for help in decongesting the airways, total respiratory support. Diffuse or apply to your chest.

Why should you try Essential oils?

Using essential oils are great for helping to reducing the amount of toxins in your home and for the aromatherapy benefits.  But they will also help your immune system, sleep, and family.  I love the idea of reducing the chemical load being put into our bodies and having a natural way to boost immunity.  All those oils listed above come in Young Livings starter kit which is the best way to get started. There are also other kits you can choose from as well. See below picture for options.

Bonus – You will get a FREE foaming lemon hand soap when you purchase a starter kit from me the rest of May. Remember zero monthly commitment – just a community of like minded people and education waiting for you! From sleep support, stress, overwhelm, big feelings, tantrums, and so so much more. Add some calm vibes to your home!

Fruit and Veggie Soak

Let’s be honest, here. When we buy produce from the store, do you wash it before using it? If so, how do you know you’re washing it in the best way you can?

Freshly bought produce (yes, even organic), is FILTHY. It may not look like it, but oh my – it needs a serious bath. Between the many hands of others that have touched it, to people breathing and coughing and sneezing on it, to being sprayed for preservation on the farms and in the warehouses, to being loaded and packed and shipped and coming in contact with all kinds of other invisible culprits, I’ll say it again – our store bought produce is filthy.  The most contaminated fruits and vegetables are some of our favorites – peaches, strawberries, pears, lettuce, apples, cherries, bell peppers, spinach, nectarines, grapes, celery, and potatoes!

I bet that’ll make you think twice before you just do a quick rinse and take a bite out of your new apple, huh? 

Look how dirty my water is after washing strawberries!

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Considering all the horrific things that may be atop our produce that are grossing us out big time, wouldn’t you want to wash that off with the purest, most natural, healthy, safe, and effective product – especially one infused with powerful essential oils? YES. And that is exactly what this wash can do, and so much more. It is the best choice for you because it:-Utilizes plant based ingredients 
-Cleanses produce back to the way nature intended them to be 
-Naturally removes residue safely and powerfully with the help of concentrated and genuine essential oils
-Does not effect the taste of produce after soaking
…and so much more!

HOW DO I USE IT?

When using Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak, it’s simple! 

-Get a clean bowl or sink, and fill it up with clean water
-Add 1-2 capfuls of Thieves Fruit & Veggie Wash, and pour into the water (depending on how much produce you’re washing, the bottle will specify how much you should use)
-Put your fruits and veggies into the water
-Let them soak for 1-2 minutes (I let them soak for longer sometimes)
-Take them out and rinse under clean water
And, WHALLA! Perfectly clean produce, with no more residue, and without effecting the taste. 

All Clean!
