NEW TO OILS? START HERE
You probably have lots of questions.. You’re not sure where to start? Maybe you don’t know how to use them? What is a diffuser? All the questions! I’ve been there, we totally get it!
You’re probably wondering, what exactly are essential oils?
Essential oils are the volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flower and other parts of plants.
(AKA, plant juice). You can think of an essential oil as a plant’s ‘immune system’. It lives inside the plant and is constantly changing it’s chemical composition, helping the plant to adapt to the ever-changing internal and external environment.
To carefully remove this life force from the plant, essential oils are extracted through steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing. Once the essential oils have been removed, you can access their benefits for a ENDLESS range of emotional and physical wellness applications.
HOW CAN I USE THEM?
Add a few drops inside a diffuser and inhale the oily goodness!
You can also rub 2–3 drops of essential oil between your palms and inhale.
Many essential oils are safe and beneficial to use directly on the skin.
It’s best when starting out to dilute the oils with a carrier oil (we love fractionated coconut oil!) before applying to your skin.
You can ingest some essential oils, they are a supplement! Young Living is the only company that offers an entire line of Vitality oils specifically labeled for internal ingestion. Add them to your water, smoothies, or whatever you have planned for the menu each day!
WHY YOUNG LIVING?
Friends don’t let friends buy oils at the grocery store. The bottle of oil you’re holding in your hand right now that you bought at the grocery store to make that fabulous DIY body butter might be marked, “lavender” but it actually could be something completely different. Oils bought at the store fall under Cosmetics & Fragrance – beauty department – not health department. The entire beauty and much of the health industry is not regulated. What is in that little bottle could be any number of things. Often times you’ll find synthetics, solvents, harmful fillers, vegetable oils etc.
As moms, we want the best for ourselves and for our families. With Young Living you can be sure that you are getting the absolute best!
Young living has been producing the finest quality oils for over 20 years. They are the only company to own their own farms, and they have strict and rigorous standards for any partner farms they collaborate with.
They have the greatest selection of oils available, with over 200 oils, singles & blends and over 300 more clean home products.

DO THEY REALLY WORK?
Yes! Yes! Yes! No joke, our life and home has changed in the best way possible because of essential oils. Our health has improved, we are closer and closer to toxin-free lives and they are safe for our children, plus our emotional health has never been better! We are beyond grateful!
HOW MUCH DO I USE ? AND HOW OFTEN?
Essential oils are potent – so start with a little and go slow. In most cases 1-2 drops is adequate; using more usually isn’t necessary and may waste your oils! Build up over time and go with your gut. When in doubt – proper usage is indicated on each EO label.
CAN I USE THEM WHILE PREGNANT & NURSING?
Yes! Oils are wonderful for supporting a healthy pregnancy! We have a class just for expecting mamas to walk you through all of it and to help you feel confident using oils. We do recommend letting your doctor or midwife know that you are using essential oils while pregnant, so they are aware and can help you if needed. It is generally recommended to avoid overuse of Clary Sage, Hyssop, Idaho Tansy, Sage, Fennel, and Wintergreen as well as the blends and supplements that contain these oils during pregnancy.
Most essential oils can be used safely during pregnancy and nursing and are a wonderful and natural way to balance the mood and support the body during this special time.
I HAVE TINY HUMANS, CAN I USE EO’S WITH THEM?
Yes! Essential oils are such a wonderful tool for little ones, that’s how we got starter ourselves! Many essential oils are appropriate for use on children but should be diluted with a carrier oil prior to use. YL even has and entire line of oils that come prediluted with carrier oil and are intended for direct application on children (because easier wins!). We teach all the mamas on our team how to safely and confidently use oils with their babies & children.
