Most everyone I know who loves essential oils also seems to spread positivity! Many of us were intrigued by friends who smelled strangely like flowers and trees, and then we noticed they had a weird volcano misting thing called a diffuser on their kitchen countertop....AND their house smelled nice and clean (but they didn't use candles or Glade Plug Ins)? In this season when many feel down and somewhat under the weather, the oils can really help uplift the spirits and create a more positive, healthy environment. Think about someone you know that might like to borrow your diffuser to try a little Lemon and Peppermint to brighten their day! Let's make sure to share our oils and be that friend that reaches out with encouragement and speaks words of life and love to others.
As part of Young Living's current Spirit of Sharing promotion through the end of December, anyone who enrolls as a new member with the purchase of a Premium Starter Kit receives a 12th oil with their kit as a free bonus: a 5ml bottle of Christmas Spirit! Who needs to light up the seasonal scented candles when you have a bottle of our Christmas Spirit in your oils stash? This joyful and soothing aroma is a synergy (blend) of three favorite essential oils that are reminiscent of the Christmas season: Sweet Orange, Cinnamon Bark, and Black Spruce. The essential oil pressed from the orange peel is in high demand in the essential oil market worldwide. Many familiar cleaning products contain Orange oil for its grease cutting properties, but most love Orange oil for its uplifting and calming aroma. Who remembers the cheerful childhood experience of eating an orange sherbet push pop on a summer's day? Cinnamon Bark essential oil produces a stimulating and energetic effect and the warm and spicy aroma blends well with the sweet citrus of Orange. The third oil in this synergy trio is Black Spruce. Most find that Spruce helps produce a sense of grounding, balancing and relaxing in the environment. As with any oil synergy, these three combine together to produce a greater effect than each oil used alone and the result is the perfect lovely aroma for holiday gatherings with friends and family this season.
One of the first essential oils I recommend adding on to your Premium Starter Kit is Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica). Cedarwood has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma and can create a relaxing, calming, comforting atmosphere when diffused. Just want to relax to drift off to sleep? Try adding the combo of Cedarwood + Lavender to your diffuser and within a few minutes your eyelids may feel verrrry heaaavy (and your head will feel the effects of gravity hitting the pillow)! Cedarwood is a nice addition to skin care products: add a few drops to your moisturizer for smoother looking skin. You'll find hair help here as well: massage a 2-3 drops of Cedarwood into your scalp for the appearance of healthy-looking hair. Combine it with Lemongrass, Citronella, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Clove or Myrtle and apply topically to enjoy time outdoors annoyance free. Word has gotten around that the aroma of Cedarwood may be calming for little boys, but your mileage may vary on that one! :)
Your friendly neighborhood UPS carrier just dropped off the package you've been waiting for oh so patiently for the past 7-10 business days: it's your new Young Living Premium Starter Kit (or PSK for short)! A sweet smelling, brightly colored box of 11 oils and their BFF: a cool-mist essential oil diffuser, ready to refresh and revitalize your environment. If you're like most new Young Living oilers, you selected the Dewdrop or the Home ("the rose") Diffuser to pair up with your oils. Before you plug in your diffuser for the first time, make sure to review the enclosed operation manual. The Home Diffuser would like you to fill it with DISTILLED water. The Dewdrop diffuser, however, has a taste for tap or spring water (no distilled or purified water, please). Fill only to the max fill line (or red dot on the Dewdrop) and add 2-3 drops of the first oil you'd like to diffuse. If you'd like to try two oils at a time, Lemon and Peppermint play nicely together. A the end of the diffusing cycle, wipe out the bowl of the diffuser and use the enclosed sponge to gently clean the ultrasonic plate. All of our diffusers come with a 1-year replacement warranty as long as you follow the usage instructions in the operation manual.
What oils did you diffuse today? The synergy of oils I chose for this first day of November: Pine + Orange + Cinnamon Bark!
