I made one of the best resolution in 2014 for my health and that was to enter into the world of essential oils. I know I have a lot of readers who are leaps and bounds ahead of me on this — and I am eager to learn from you and share with you.
The rest of you, I hope you are coming along for the ride because I am really excited about this!
I will be doing the whole 11 oils that comes in the starter kit as GIVEAWAYS, so be sure to check again.
What are Essential Oils and Why Use Them :Essential oils are the natural, aromatic liquids that protect plants against disease, insects, and other environmental conditions. Their innate properties make them powerfully therapeutic for humans as well, promoting overall health, and supporting both physical and emotional well-being.
In a world where most medicine is chemically produced, record numbers are now turning to essential oils – to improve health without exposure to side effects.
Why I Chose Young Living Essential Oils :When it comes to essential oils – farming, distilling, and sourcing is everything! Young Living is the only company with carefully curated farms all over the world.
Due to the wide-use of synthetic chemicals in the distillation process, a vast majority of essential oils on the market today are useful only for perfumes and cosmetics. They should never be ingested or inhaled.
Young Living essential oils however, are never diluted, cut, or adulterated in any way.
Young Living uses a proprietary, low-temperature, distillation process that’s entirely chemical-free. Carefully monitoring every step of the production of essential oils from beginning to end, through a unique seed to seal process, Young Living ensures the purity of each essential oil.
3 Ways to Use Essential Oils
1.Aromatic. Aromatic is the process of breathing in the essential oil. This can be done by using an essential oil diffuser, inhaling directly from the bottle or by adding a few drops to hands and cupping over nose and mouth.
2.Topical. Topical application is the process of applying essential oil directly to the area of concern along with the ears, hands and feet. Some oils can be applied directly and others need to be diluted with a carrier oil. Oils can also be added to bathwater or in a warm compress.
3.Internal. Some essential oils make excellent dietary supplements or food flavorings. Essential oil can be added to a liquid and drinking or to a veggie capsule and swallowed.
Everyday Essential Oils
I started my essential oil journey with the premium starter kit because it was the best value! Along with the diffuser, it included 5 ml bottles of the basic ten everyday essential oils:

Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it.
Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy.
Lavender Essential Oil is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.
The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.
Basic Uses of Lavender Essential Oil
- Soothe minor burns by applying 2–3 drops of lavender essential oil to the affected area.
- Rub lavender essential oil on dry or chapped skin to moisturize the affected area.
- Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to a cotton ball and place it in closets and drawers to scent linens and repel moths and insects.
- May be able to minimize the appearance of scar tissue by massaging lavender essential oil on or around affected areas.
- Place a few drops of lavender essential oil on a wet cloth or dryer ball to deodorize and freshen your laundry.
- Diffuse lavender essential oil to minimize seasonal discomforts.
- Rub a few drops of lavender essential oil onto your hand and spread over your child’s pillow to help him/her sleep.
