The natural living bandwagon, surely you're on it? Or still waiting to hop on?!  It seems like in the past few years natural living has been running at full speed into the spotlight, for the good.  A few years ago, when I was taking more steps into a healthier lifestyle I started hearing about Essential Oils for the first time, and assumed they were nothing more than fragrance for your home.. kind of like a candle!   Boy, was I wrong!  These amazing little bottles are designed to create a positive emotional state, supporting physical wellness and spiritual awareness, purifying your home and even refining your beauty routine. The practice of using essential oils is nothing new and pretty simple. Essential oils come from plants and have therapeutic properties that help one's wellness. Oils can be applied directly to the skin, internally and diffused aromatically. 

 

You can read more here about WHY I chose Young Living, and continue to do so. 

 

Here are some of my favorite tried and true recipes that I use for the most common ailments we have around here.. all recipes are made using the oils in the starter kit! 

 

 

1.) Sleep Support

We NEED sleep... but sometimes going to bed early doesn't happen, and sometimes staying asleep or falling asleep is a struggle.  If I need a little support to help me fall asleep or stay asleep I use Lavender & Stress Away. Lavender is a common scent used in many calming soaps a lotions. It is a calming oil that is perfect for bedtime use! I love to put a couple drops on the bottom of my feet and on my forearms. I also like to put a drop or two in the palms of my hand and inhale for an aromatic effect.  Stress away is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood & Lavender and promotes a calming and relaxing atmosphere that compliments well with sleep!

 

 2.) Tummy Support

I have always had a more sensitive stomach and it always lets me know. I recently was told by my doctor to cut out gluten and dairy.. and this news was delivered to me only 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. Can you tell where this is going? :) Basically i did NOT follow the new eating plan. This is where Digize comes in. I have received so much relief from this oil. It is the ONE oil I always, always, always have with me for digestive support. It is a blend of Fennel, Lemongrass, Patchouli among others!   I simply apply a couple drops to my belly when I am having troubles and feel relief within minutes.  Peppermint is another great one to use for nausea related to motion sickness and even menstrual cycles. I like to add it to my water, a drop on my nose for easy inhalation, and a couple drops on my belly.  I am sure to take it with my for winding car rides. 

 

3.) Respiratory Support 

When I am feeling a tad under the wellness line, I reach for the R.C. This oil stands for "Respiratory Care." It is a blend of Myrtle, Pine, Lavender, Cypress, Peppermint to name a few.  I apply a couple drops to my chest in spine for support and add it to a hot bath.  

 

4.) Skin Support

Lavender and Frankincense are my favorites when it comes to skin support!  This duo is my go to for support for blemishes, wrinkles, and over all clearer skin.  I love using them as a eye moisturizer and night time cream.  They are also great for those random ( and annoying ) bruises that pop up in the most untimely manner! 

 

5.) Headache & Sore Muscle Support

My husband gets headaches weekly, so i always have Peppermint and PanAway in stock to help support his pain. I apply peppermint to his temples and the sides and back of the neck. The cooling sensation of this oil brings relief and eases discomfort. I love PanAway for use post workout when my muscles are wrecked.  Simply add a drop of PanAway and water to a spray bottle and spray on a warm wash cloth and apply to the spots of discomfort.  

 

 

The ways to use these oils are endless. I use the starter kit oils on a daily basis!  These oils aren't just for when you're feeling a little under the weather.. they are good for maintaining optimal wellness, for making your body stronger and less dependent on chemically filled medicine!  Of course, there are situations when there is no question that you need medicine, we aren't talking about those moments, because there are plenty of other moments when it is almost too easy to reach for the Advil when you could be choosing a better option for yourself. You can't overdose on oils, so they can be used all the time!
