**While I am no longer an Active Distributor for Young Living Essential Oils, we do still use them daily in our home.  I hope you can find a local distributor in your community who can help you with your own essential oils journey.

We use our essential oils every day.  They have truly changed how we address accidents, bumps and bruises, little cuts, headaches, and more.  We are so glad to have these natural, plant and God-created oils that have been used for thousands of years — and from a company as honest as Young Living which commits themselves to the Seed to Seal promise.  I like to share what we are using, how, and why every month.  Essential oils safety should always be utmost in our mind.  Use with caution and dilute with children.


If you get anything from Young Living Essential Oils, anything at all, it should be Thieves.  Thieves essential oil, Thieves hand purifier, Thieves sanitizer spray, Thieves cleaner.  This stuff kills germs.  Period.  And it saved us throughout this incredibly cold winter.  I have never been a fan of hand sanitizer — ever since I read that we are supposed to harvest good bacteria on our hands and that the stuff (and there is the same problem with antibacterial soap — it can produce power bugs!) will kill it all — bad and good.  The power bugs (not a technical term) grow stronger and more powerful and now can’t be killed by regular purell hand sanitizer — so washing your hands is really the best way to go. But I have kids.  We go to the grocery store, or shake hands with people and church who just coughed (yuck), and there is a definite use and need for a hand cleaner.  But not the alcohol based one.  How about a sweet smelling in a ___ base that smells and feels amazing.  One tiny drop can saturate your hands.  And you can feel okay with your child having a drop to themselves.  No alcohol.  No risk. Just a wonderful, refreshing way to clean hands.  I will never be without it again and I buy 3 new little bottles every month.  For the car, purse, other purse, diaper bag, you name it.  I have one everywhere.

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier: Denatured ethanol SD-38B (denatured with Peppermint Essential Oil), water, aloe barbadensis leaf, vegetable glycerin, clove flower bud oil, lemon peel oil, cinnamon bark oil, eucalyptus leaf oil, rosemary leaf oil, and hydroxylpropyl cellulose.

This month’s oils

So, the big purchase this month was Helichrysum, which is now the most expensive essential oil I own.  But it is pure joy in a bottle.  This essential oil is used for head injuries (I have a toddler, and a son who likes to play “fight” with the toddler), as well as stop bleeding, as well as it is wonderful for evening out skin tone!  I made a roll-on with 1/4 Helichrysum and 3/4 avocado oil, and now put it under my eyes at night. I truly feel brighter!

We also bought DiGize: the tummy saver.  Tummy ache? DiGize!  It doesn’t smell good, but one drop makes you feel so much better after the rumbles.  In fact, my sweet friend’s daughter had serious constipation issues and this has resolved them for her.  Wonderful.

DiGize Essential Oils Blend: Tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, fennel, lemongrass, anise, and patchouli.

Lavender.  I used to not like the smell. Can you believe it?  I still find it a bit strong, but I add it to my Frankincense lotion, and I carry it in a roll-on with me everywhere for quick scrapes or a quick drop for an active kiddo.

M-Grain: A wildcard this month that I thought may relieve a stressful day.  It smells better than Aroma Siez — another muscle tension essential oil blend.  Used for muscles relaxation.

M-Grain Essential Oils Blend: Basil, marjoram, lavender, peppermint, Roman chamomile, and helichrysum.

And the two bonuses I got this month are Taste of Italy and Thyme.  I don’t often cook with essential oils, but these two have made me start.  And my son absolutely loved the chicken I made with the Taste of Italy.  Which was a surprising blessing.

Taste of Italy Essential Oils Blend: Basil, Oregano (Origanum vulgare, Origanum minutiflorum), Origanum onites, Origanum majorana.
