I’ve talked about the uses, I’ll talk about the benefits, and I’ll recommend these essential oils time and time again. Young Living Essential Oils have changed how I treat rashes, bug bites, burns, pains and strains, coughs, sinus congestion and upset stomachs. These oils are all organic, and have been researched more than any other brand of essential oils. My medicine cabinet and cleaning closet both look considerably different than they did before essential oils came into my life.
First, I’m going to tell you how to get these oils yourself. There are two options for purchasing oils, retail and wholesale. To purchase as a retail customer you can register here and fill in your account information. Retail customers do not receive a discount on their purchases and are not eligible for rewards. Wholesale members receive 24% off all items site-wide. As a wholesale member you are eligible to participate in their Essential Rewards Program which works like a cash-back program. To sign-up as a wholesale member you do have to purchase a starter kit which range from $45-$260 depending on the bundle of items you choose.

One of the best ways to utilize essential oils is as an alternative cleaning option. Think about your current kitchen cleaners. What do they all smell like? Citrus! Lemon and orange both have highly antiviral and antibacterial properties. You can use lemons alone to clean, but lets take a look at this visual. Essential oils are very concentrated oils from the plant they are extracted from. A couple drops of lemon with vinegar works as a kitchen cleaner and sanitizer. But my FAVORITE oil and cleaner is Thieves. Thieves essential oil is a blend of Rosemary, Cinnamon, Lemon, Cloves and Eucalyptus. The name? The herbs in Thieves were used during the bubonic plague by thieves to avoid catching the plague whilst robbing victims houses. Thieves is one of the largest product lines offered by Young Living and includes: cleaner, laundry detergent, bar soap, hand soap, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, veggie wash and the one and only essential oil itself. I keep the cleaner mixed up in a spray bottle at all times. We use the cleaner in our steam mop for an added cleaning boost, and I diffuse the oil to kill bacteria in the air.
I’ve barely hit the tip of the iceberg when it comes to essential oils. I’ll share more later and of course, you will continue to hear about how to use these oils in my other posts. I hope you consider the benefits of natural cleaning and natural healing. Comment with questions or personal experiences, I’d love to hear your stories!
