Christmas Spirit

November 25, 2018 0 Comments

I have Christmas Spirit Essential Oil, now what?

Spruce, cinnamon, and orange are the scents you will enjoy when diffusing Christmas Spirit.

I wanted to share with you some other uses for Christmas Spirit other than diffusing it.  I treated myself to a car diffuser so I've added a few drops of Christmas Spirit to that.  Between that and Christmas music playing in my car, I'm in my glory!  Check out some of these other great uses for Christmas Spirit.  Enjoy!!!

My Top 3 Favs!

November 15, 2018 0 Comments
New to Young Living Essential Oils, new to essential oils in general, you have your starter kit...NOW WHAT?

I'd like to share with you my top three favorite essential oils, my go-to's, my everyday oils:

1. Lavender

  • What's the deal with lavender?  Why is lavender one of my top three?  Lavender is considered to be the "jack of all trades" of essential oils.  When in doubt and not sure which oil to use, I reach for Lavender.  
  • Lavender has been known to assist in giving a calming effect and enhancing sleep and relaxation.
    • Add a refreshing scent to your linens with a little lavender spray
    • Add a few drops of lavender to Epsom salt for a simple bath salt 
    • Rub onto your temples to alleviate stress

2. Peppermint

  • Have you ever heard of the peppermint trick?  No?????  Let me enlighten you!  Are you prone to head pains and discomfort?  Peppermint Vitality to the rescue!  Put a couple of drops of Peppermint Vitality onto your palm.  Rub your thumb on your palm and press your thumb to the roof of your mouth for about 30 seconds.  Rub your hands together and inhale a couple big breaths.  This will be your go-to from now on!
    • BONUS: You will also have fresh breath!  
  • Did you know that Peppermint also helps to assist in tummy discomfort?  Apply some peppermint to your tummy, rub it into your skin.  
  • Peppermint is also helpful in cooling down after a long and hard workout routine.  Apply some peppermint essential oil to your muscles for some relaxing and cooling effects.

3. Thieves

  • AMAZING!!!  Thieves is actually a combination of some powerhouse oils such as clove, cinnamon, lemon, rosemary, and eucalyptus.  These oils together create quite the punch with a rich, spicy aroma.
  • In need of supporting your immune system...turn to Thieves!  Put a drop on a Kleenex, inhale for some additional immune support.  Rub some Thieves onto the soles of your feet.  
  • Thieves makes a great household cleaner by adding a drop of Thieves Essential Oil to distilled vinegar.  Not only does it act as a great antibacterial cleaner, but also freshens your house as well.
These are just my three go-to oils, but by no means the only oils we use.  I will continue to share with you the many oils we use in our home regularly.

Welcome to Essential Like For You!

Hi everyone!

Have you wondered what essential oils are all about?  Have you given thought to bring essential oils in your home, but not sure where to begin?

Welcome to Essential Life For You!  While you are here, I hope I am able to share with you the many wonderful benefits of using essential oils in your life.  First, I would like to give you a glimpse into our family life of six!  Yes...six!  Together with my husband, we have four fabulous children between us, ages 14, 12, 9, and 6.  This picture is a little dated but shows how we are continuously happy on a daily basis.  We thank God for the many blessings bestowed upon us each and every day.

Together with my family, we began the Young Living essential oils journey in June 2018.  At that time, I will admit, we were extremely skeptical, and did not believe that these oils would do anything for us.  My husband was the most skeptical of all of us, but we slowly committed to making the switch from using harsh chemicals to clean our home, for our laundry, and soaps to clean dishes and wash hands to Young Living Thieves Cleaner.  Once my husband realized how easy it was to make the switch, while still keeping our home clean and safe, his support grew and has been truly remarkable and unwavering.  We embraced the oils together as a family by starting with a Premium Starter Kit from Young Living.  Since then we have brought in a second diffuser for our family, increased our use of oils, and launched a line of essential oil jewelry.

I hope to provide you with my reasons for using essential oils, share with you the many benefits of using oils, and increase your knowledge of oils.  Throughout this site, I will provide you with resources, recipes, tips, strategies, and ideas of incorporating essential oils into your home.
