July Monthly Buzz: *Free Ref Guide * How can oils help you reach your goals? * Guacamole & more!

Hello oilers! Happy halfway through the year! 
Seems like 2018 is zipping by, but the ride has been amazing so far! I am so grateful I get to be a part of Young Living. This is so much bigger than me and you. So blessed I said "Yes" to all of this almost 4 years ago, and I am so excited YOU said "Yes" to this healthy lifestyle, too! I can't wait to see where we both are by the end of the year. Read on to hear about how you can score yourself a free bottle of the oil blend that will keep me a loyal YL oiler for life (Valor!) and your own copy of Vitality, the beautiful new reference guide from YL aromatherapist Jen O'Sullivan!


Young Living USA July Promo Items - Yes that's free VALOR!

Let ️ FREEDOM RING with this list of perfect for summer promos for July!

 💦 5 ml Lavender Vitality (ER exclusive): Be the star of your summer gatherings with easy to mix up Lavender Lemonade (just 1-2 drops to a full pitcher)
 💜💪 5 ml Valor: Seriously? Free VALOR?! Y'all this is my all time favorite and the oil blend that will keep me a YL oiler for life! Courage and go-for-it in a bottle: this calms my nerves and I put it on each time I teach a class, have to have a hard conversation with someone, or just need a dose of calm and tranquility. This is a safe and favorite blend for kids and adults. I found that our dauchsund puppy also loves the smell of it, but let's face it, doxies DON'T need an extra boost of courage, know what I'm saying?
 🍍 LavaDerm (ER exclusive): Sweet smelling, cool down LavaDerm mist keeps your skin happy in the summer if you've had a little too much outdoor time. Also, if you're a fan of Savvy Minerals, you can use this in place of the Misting Spray, works just like it!
 🐠 15 ml Geranium: Now I love this oil by itself and also because it's in two of my favorite blends, Joy and Harmony. You can add it to your facial care products for skin support and surprisingly a lot of people add it to the water in their HOT TUBS! #itshotinthehottub
 🌴 15 ml Aroma Life: Oh my heart! I love this blend when I just get a little too mom hyper and need to call myself down. What, y'all never get mom-hyper? #tellyourselfthetruth Cypress, marjoram, ylang yang and helichrysum in a base of sesame seed oil, you wear it over your heart and your wrists to get a grip and push through to do all the mama things. Love this one and I think you'll be delighted with this one if it's new to you!

I am so excited about this new how-to-oil-like-a-boss reference guide recently published by one of my favorite aromatherapists, Jen O'Sullivan. Over the past few years, Jen created countless video classes on line and now we have that content in a book form that's well organized, based on science and smarts, with recommendations that are easy to put into practice right away. You'll have lots of 💡moments with this book and you'll want to tab and highlight it all the way through.

Summer is for working toward your dreams and goals!

As a homeschool mom, I've always taken the summer months as a time of rest, reflection, and goal setting for the upcoming year. I'm implementing something that a lot of YL oilers put into place to help them stay on task with their plans and goals called OOLA! Have you heard of it? Oola is just a word that was coined to mean: "a state of awesomeness when your life is balanced and growing in the seven key areas of life - Family, Faith, Fitness, Finance, Friends, Fun, and Field." To partner with the Oola book series (look it up on Amazon) YL created the Infused 7 blends, one for each of these 7 key areas of life to be used as an olfactory "string around the finger" to remind you to stick to your goals and small daily tasks to make your dreams and goals happen! You can diffuse one of these when when you're doing work related to your goal to set that aroma in your mind to keep you on task. Pretty cool, huh? Sometimes you'll also see me wear one of these colored bracelets that the Oola guys created to be worn as a reminder to keep working on a goal in that specific area of life. They are fun and the colors are cheerful, too. I'm looking forward to seeing the two Oola guys speak again (they are so funny and really light a fire of motivation under ya!) this September.

All the details on the new products can be found here: https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/products/convention-products   

Make the most of your 4th of July! 

Fireworks are a common tradition on the 4th of July, but the loud noises can make for an unsettling evening for those that have served in uniform and your furry friends. Use Lavender and Stress Away, two Premium Starter Kit favorites, to provide a calming atmosphere. Other calming favorites are Peace and Calming and Valor. 

How to make the tastiest guac for the 4th: 


Lemon- Lime Guacamole 
2  ripe avocados, seeded and mashed with a fork
1-2 T red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed/minced 
1/2 to 1 drop Lemon Vitality Essential Oil
1/2 to 1 drop Lime Vitality Essential Oil
1 small Roma tomato, diced
1 t fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Directions: Add avocado to a small mixing bowl. Mix into the avocado the red onion, crushed garlic, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and salt to taste. Add a little of the lemon and/or lime essential oil (use the dilution tip we gave you) and taste; add more to taste.
Onion trick: To remove some of the bite of the red onion, soak the chopped onion in warm water for five minutes and then remove from the water. 
Serve with tortilla chips (of course)!
Bee oiled 🐝 and be safe and have a fun 4th  !

Do you have your Valor? Announcing...courage in a bottle now comes in a roll-on! 

Ah Valor! For this oil blend alone, I will never let my Young Living membership run out. We have been BFFs since the fall of 2014 and this is my get-ready-get-set-and-go oil. Every awkward conversation, this helps me to calm my jitters. Let’s just say on many peopley occasions when I feel particularly introverted, I keep it in my pocket. This oil blend converted me from an occasional lavender sniffer to a full on oil lady.  I always have it with me, so ask me for a drop and you’ll soon see what I mean. Now it comes in a super sized.roll-on bottle!
Valor is a blend of Black spruce, Camphor wood oil, Blue tansy, Frankincense, and Geranium.
Diffusing this oil helps us overcome fear and opposition so we can stand tall. Valor helps to build courage, confidence, and self-esteem and it also brings a feeling of calmness, peace, and relaxation.
Write down something you would like to accomplish this month that requires a little boost of confidence! Use your Valor EVERY DAY. At the end of the month, take a look at what you have accomplished! #unicornoil

March Newsletter: Could spring BEE right around the corner?

Hello Oilers! 
Spring is just around the corner, are you as excited as I am? For my March newsletter, I have some product recommendations, an exciting announcement regarding an upgrade to our Premium Starter Kit, the topic of my March class, and of course the YL PROMOTIONS for March!

For my first March update......presenting..... The Bee Oiled Collective  ! 
As Spring rolls in, I am refreshing my essential oils teaching business with a new name that reflects my love of honeybees and my desire to create a community of positive people that support each other to build healthier hives...I mean...healthier homes.  Are you on Instagram? You can follow me at beeoiledcollective on IG, where I will include classes in quick flip format, essential oil DIY ideas, kid-approved healthy foods, and a peak in to what I'm growing in my garden. Why bees and essential oils? Plants produce essential oils to help maintain the health of the plant and to also attract pollinators like bees, so without the bees, we truly wouldn't "be oiled" or enjoying the health benefits of oils in our homes.

Did you hear about the NEW Premium Starter Kit (PSK)? RC and Purification have officially been replaced with Raven and Citrus Fresh.
Raven™ is a powerful blend perfect to diffuse or apply topically pre or post exercise and before bed.
Single Oils Contained in This Blend:
  • Ravensara is a cross between clove and nutmeg. Great for energy.
  • Lemon promotes physical energy and is great topically on your lungs.
  • Wintergreen contains 99% methyl salicylate which makes it great to apply to chest and joints pre or post workout.
  • Peppermint is soothing and cooling.
  • Eucalyptus radiata gives you a spa-like experience when used or diffused.
Application: Dilute one to two drops and apply topically to lungs and throat. Diffuse or put on pillow at night. Pairs well with Thieves. Not recommended for small children.

Citrus Fresh™ is a blend that may help to enhance the feeling of well-being in children. It is relaxing and calming and it smells SO good. Think citrus with a hint of mint.
Single Oils Contained in This Blend:
Orange brings peace and happiness to the mind and body.
Tangerine is calming to the nervous system.
Mandarin promotes happiness. It is also refreshing, uplifting, and revitalizing.
Grapefruit is balancing and uplifting to the mind.

Safety Data: Avoid exposure to direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after use.

In addition to the new oils, the PSK will now come with a sample of Thieves cleaner instead of the essential oil sample packets. I am so excited that our friends get to try out how magical this cleaner is right away. This one ounce sample can easily make two 16 oz spray bottles of toxin-free all purpose cleaner.

If you thought that wasn’t enough, you can now order the PSK with the Desert mist diffuser for $160 100PV on quick order only. This is a great way to get a new diffuser, try the new oils, and restock your favorite oils. The Desert Mist diffuses continuously for 5–6 hours on High mode, 8 hours on Low mode, and 10 hours on Intermittent mode.* It also offers 11 individual light settings, including a candle-like flicker mode.*Run time may vary based on essential oil type and number of drops used.

Upcoming Class!

Would you love to spend a fun Saturday afternoon learning more about oils and staying on track with healthy goals?
My March class is Creating a Wellness Plan with Essential Oils.

Do you have a rainbow of essential oil bottles tucked inside a drawer or looking pretty on a shelf....but you're unsure how to use them? This class will help you plug in the potential of those bottles to boost your wellness and make a personalized plan for your wellness goals. You'll learn how to research essential oils, how to get the most out of the oils you already have, and how to find the oils you need to support particular systems of the body. Class is limited to 10 spots, and everyone receives a copy of the new "Now What?" 4 month wellness planner to help you target 4 months of health goals. Your $5 fee covers the cost of your Now What planner. 

Young Living March Promotions:

HELLO Spring Cleaning. Fill up your Essential Rewards cart with your favorite items like NingXia Red, Multigreens, and Abundance and receive these everyday must haves for FREE. You must reach the PV value in a single order to qualify for promotional items. 
300 PV (Retail value - $154.27)
Hope is a blend of Melissa, Myrrh, Juniper, and Spruce. It gives a feeling of peace, security, and achievement. Who doesn't want that!? Apply this one to your, chest, heart, temples, back of your neck, and wrists. Use it as an beautiful perfume or cologne. Put 4-8 drops in your diffuser and inhale for feelings of going forward with hope and achievement. 
Thieves Cleaner with 16 oz Spray bottle - One bottle of this concentrated Thieves Cleaner is enough to make twenty-nine 16 oz spray bottles. Generic cleaners contain Phalates which interfere with hormones and are carcinogens. NO THANK YOU. I'll always use my Thieves cleaner that is SAFE and EFFECTIVE. It is naturally derived, smells great, and I can use it on EVERYTHING. 
Thieves Cleaner contains two different sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar. These sulfates are considered surfactants, which contain a molecule that loves water and a molecule that hates water. That means the Thieves Cleaner sticks to the surface and grabs the oil and then washes away easily with water.
Thieves Dish Soap - A little goes a long way. Don't be fooled by few bubbles while washing. This is a powerhouse cleaner infused with Jade Lemon, Bergamot, Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, and Rosemary essential oils. It contains one of the most gentle surfactants around, often used in baby shampoo, called Decyl Glucoside. Perfect for the most sensitive skin. 
BONUS ER 15 ml Citrus Fresh -  We just talked about this one above, so I don't need to repeat how amazing it is! 
BONUS ER 5 ml Lemon Vitality - Add a drop of Lemon Vitality to your water, food, or daily wellness capsule to add flavor, promote overall wellness, and support your liver and lymphatic system.
