Essential Oils 101

So, maybe you have never heard about essential oils or maybe you have and need a bit more information. Welcome, you've come to the right place! 

My name is Jillian. I am a Christ follower. I live each and every day to serve him. I am a mom of 2, with one on the way. I have a wonderful husband that I have been blessed to be married to for 4 years. I was an elementary teacher for 5 years. This is my first year of being a stay at home mom and homeschooling. I have wanted to be a stay at home mom, since my first child was born. We are so thankful God has given our family this wonderful opportunity to start this new journey. 

My Crew

Before I was introduced to essential oils, I only thought of them as a fragrance. My family had candles, lotions, air fresheners, and soaps that used "essential oils" to make our home and family members smell nice. Boy were my eyes opened up when I found out that essential oils could be therapeutic. Say what? I immediately felt like I had been left in the dark. How had I not given essential oils much thought before to being an option to support my families health? Life always has a funny way of throwing you a curve ball. Most of them I could do without :) I for one am glad this curve ball came into my life. As I started talking with friends and family, I learned how many of them were using Young Living essential oils and products to support their families health and wellness. My husband and I decided to start our oily journey. All I can say is...WOW! We were impressed from the beginning to learn about how the oils supported all of our body systems. I was so excited! I started sharing Young Living with everyone I came into contact with. As moms, there is something incredible that happens when we are empowered to care for ourselves and our family. I love sharing anything that can help moms care for their families, so Young Living fits right in. My hope is that you too will have the same experiences and start to share your "oily stories" with others.

For a great overview of Young Living, watch this short video.

This class is focused on teaching you about Young Living Essential Oils. We will learn all about the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. You will get an inside look at the Everyday Oils Kit and learn how to use them safely. You will gain an understanding for why I chose Young Living for my family. At the end of the class, I will share how you can get started with Young Living and begin your "oily journey."

Okay....Let's get this party rolling!

Essential oils are the purest and most potent form of an herb. They are extracted from trees, shrubs, flowers, stems and seeds. Essential oils are nothing new. In fact historically, they are one of the oldest forms of medicine dating back to 4500 BC. 

Why I chose Young Living Essential Oils?

I chose Young Living because they are the ONLY essential oil company that has a "Seed to Seal" process. For over 20 years, they have prided themselves on setting the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity by being able to carefully monitor the production of their oils through their "Seed to Seal" process. Using this process, allows them to ensure the purity of each essential oil and protect nature's living energy in every bottle. Take a look at the videos below to learn more about each step of the process.


How do you USE and APPLY essential oils?

There are three main ways to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine: 
Aromatically, Topically and Internally.  

When inhaling, it takes 22 seconds for oils to reach your brain. The limbic system is affected the most when oils are used aromatically because the only way to reach this system is through smell. The limbic system is the center for memory and emotion, which is why oils are a great option for someone needing emotional support. Using a diffuser, is a great way to inhale oils, purify the air, and is great for respiratory support. Having multiple diffusers in your home is always a plus!! 

When essential oils are used on the bottom of your feet, they absorb very quickly. The oils then enter your blood stream and nervous system quickly. 

Read below to learn how Gary Young (founder of Young Living) explains the Vita Flex Technique.

Gary Young writes: 
"Vita Flex Technique means "vitality through the reflexes." With Vita Flex, the oils are applied on the contact points of the body. ...Energy is released through the electrical impulses by the contact between the fingertips and the reflex points. This stimulates an electrical charge that follows the pathways of the nervous system to where there is a break in the electrical circuit which will be directly related to an energy block caused by toxins, damaged tissues, or loss of oxygen. This reflex system of controls encompasses the entire body and mind. ...This technique was believed to have originated in Tibet many thousands of years ago, long before acupuncture was ever discovered.

What are carrier oils?

A carrier oil is a vegetable oil that comes from the fatty portion of a plant, usually the seeds, kernels, or nuts. They are used to dilute essential oils prior to application. Each carrier oil offers a different combination of therapeutic properties and characteristics. Some essential oils are warm to the skin and the use of a carrier oil can be helpful. This is especially true in younger children, since their skin is more sensitive. Carrier oils make spreading the essential oil over a larger area of the body much easier. When choosing the right carrier oil to use, refer to the chart below for some suggestions. 

We are going to go on a tour of each oil that comes in the Premium Starter Kit. I will explain each oil and share with you some ways you can incorporate each one into your daily routine.

Lemon is my favorite oil to use in my water. I add 2 or 3 drops to my glass throughout the day. I have used lemon in my mother's blueberry lemon bread. The taste is fabulous! I enjoy incorporating it into my hot tea recipes in the winter time. Below I have inserted my Lemon Ginger Tea recipe. Click on the image to learn how to make it.

Lavender is referred to as a "first aid kit in a bottle." The reason being it's versatility. My favorite way to use lavender is diffusing it in my children's bedroom, before they go to sleep at night. If I am ever unsure of which essential oil to use to provide support, I always grab my lavender. When in doubt...just use Lavender.

One of my favorite ways to use frankincense is to incorporate it into my skin care regime. When I first started using Young Living, I looked at the ingredients in my skin care products. I was completely freaked out with the harsh chemicals I had been putting into my body for so long! I committed myself to creating DIY recipes using Young Living essential oils to replace each and every single one. One of the recipes I use is my DIY Make-Up Remover. You can check it out below. If you know me well you know that I don't actually wear make-up anymore, so for me I use this DIY to cleanse my face on a daily basis.

Peppermint is another one of my favorite oils to put in a glass of water. It really gives me a pep in my step. My family uses Peppermint essential oil daily in our DIY Mouthwash Recipe. 

Copaiba is a powerful essential oil from South America. It has been traditionally used to support digestion and the body's natural response to injury or irritation. Copaiba is known as a "driver" oil when combined with other essential oils. This means it magnifies the properties of the oil it is used with. 

In our family, R.C. has been a huge help in the winter time when colds hit. It supports a healthy respiratory system. I apply it to the chest using coconut oil to create a soothing vapor rub before bedtime. 

One of my favorite ways to use Purification is to apply a few drops to my wool dryer balls to leave my laundry smelling clean and fresh. Ever have a stinky trashcan or diaper pail? Use 2 drops of purification on a cotton ball to neutralize those odors. 

PanAway is a great addition to an epsom salt bath after a long day to soothe sore muscles. I find muscle relief using the pain cream recipe below.

Thieves is regarded for it's ability to support the immune system. Our family is constantly on the go. We are always going to come into contact with germs that beat down on the immune system. We use Thieves in a spray recipe to keep our hands sanitized.

DiGize helps support a a healthy digestive system. Place 2-4 drops in a gel capsule with carrier oil, before each meal or as needed. DiGize could be a lifesaver on family vacations. It helps alleviate nausea and upset stomach.

When I first received my Starter Kit, it was the first week after Christmas. Need I say more? This was the first oil that I ran out of! Stress Away helped encourage relaxation in my life just when I needed it most. I must confess...I use it on a daily basis. It is my favorite essential oil.

Get What Your Family Needs...

So, here's the can't use what you don't how do you get the essential oils?
