My witterings about the Young Living European Convention

My witterings about the Young Living European Convention

So the last week has been pretty busy for me, after I returned from the Young Living European Convention at the weekend.
My mind has been blow & its taken till now to try & put into words some of what is in my head.
I already loved the oils & many of the other products so much, as they really do work & speak for themselves, BUT lets be honest, they are not the be all & end all of all life & will make your life perfect in every way, but they ARE a really good arsenal in your kit for helping to look after your families emotional, physical & (if it’s your thing) spiritual health.

Knowing that we have eliminated almost all harsh chemicals from our home & that I’m doing what I can to protect my children’s future health as best I can, is a good feeling. Not needing to reach for drugs for every little thing is a good feeling. We have hardly suffered from the usual day to day illnesses since using oils, & when they have showed signs of hitting we have used the oils to shorten & lessen the effects. That’s a really good feeling. Using oils to support difficult emotional times, is LITERALLY a good feeling!
You get the point 😉

What this weekend gave to me on top of all that, is finding out just how wonderful this company truly is.

I vaguely knew they had a charity foundation. I didn’t realise just how much it did in so many different countries, including the UK. You would think as a company they would talk about it more & use it as an additional selling point, but they don’t. They put the energy & time in to actually helping those in need & saving lives.
I sat with tears streaming down my face, listening to some of the stories & the genuine heartfelt love that Gary Young pours into this work.

Meeting so many other people whose lives had also been changed by this company for the better, and for so,so many of them in serious life changing financial ways too……….& no, it’s not an illegal pyramid scheme where only the ones on the top make money. ANYONE has the potential to make large amounts of money & overtake those above them…..plus all those above are willing you on & helping you out!
Meeting Mary Young & hearing her talk about Gary’s passion & dedication was so heart warming. She is just such a lovely, genuine woman & all those in the corporate office, seem to have been employed for similar traits. Everyone genuinely cares!

Basically I didn’t actually know my love for Young Living could grow any more, but it has HUGELY & I’m so proud to be working wth them to spread the health, wealth & happiness these oils & oil infused products can bring!

10% off European Premium Starter Kits- ONE DAY ONLY!!!!

On Monday 26th September from 00:00 to 23:59 (Central European Time), Young Living Europe will be offering a ONE DAY ONLY, 10% off Premium Starter Kits for new and existing members.

This is pretty huge, as they so rarely do any discounts, as the kits are already so heavily discounted.
To make the offer even juicer then I’m personally offering to refund the shipping too, so if you have been at all curious then now is a REALLY good time to jump in.
These oils have really truly changed our lives for the better. Even if I had not accidentally fallen into the business side of things, I would still be raving about these little bottles!! (honestly, I was adamant I was not doing another business, esp MLM, but the oils work, so I helped out friends & family when they had issues & then cheques started arriving on my doorstep!!)
I’ve done a quick (well as quick as I could make it…..you should have seen the previous one!) video, running through what you get in the starter kit & how to use it.

Anyway, I could go on & on about all the other ways I love this company & those little bottles of oil (I have not even mentioned the Seed to Seal Guarantee, which is HUGE & is what sets them apart as the world leaders providing top quality oils http://seedtoseal.com/ ) but I needed to let you know about the sale that started a few minuets ago (in the UK), as it’s such a bargain on a kit that can truly change your life for the better!!

DIY detoxifying deodorant

DIY detoxifying deodorant

I have been making our own deodorant for about 4 years now. It’s back from the days when our youngest boy was a baby & reacting to so, so many different foods, that we ended up on a strict Paleo diet for about 18 months. Many of the blogs with Paleo recipes also had natural healthcare recipes, & DIY deodorant is a popular one as it’s just so easy & works!

deo3

Over the years I have adjusted the basic coconut oil, baking soda & cornstarch recipe to one both Matt & I are happy with. I always found the basic recipe a little dry & crumbly (the the chunks of deodorant would ALWAYS fall in some embarrassing place, melt & I wouldn’t notice till I was out!) & I found the cornstarch a little scratchy.
Replacing the cornstarch with arrowroot helped make it a bit smoother, but then discovering that adding Bentonite clay not only made it velvety soft & easier to apply, but that it also added the benefits of making it a detoxifying mix too! It’s also odourless & non-staining, which are always a bonus for a deodorant.

Here is a little of what Wellness Mama says about Bentonite Clay:

Bentonite clay carries a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins. When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release it’s minerals for the body to use. Bentonite also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead.

Since discovering Young Living oils, then we have added the Purification blend to the mix, as it is great at eating smells. I know some people use it neat as a deodorant, but I have sensitive skin & it stung me a little like that. Matt really likes the scent of Purification & in this recipe, it works great for him, despite being a big, hot, sweaty man thing!
Personally at certain times of my monthly cycle I can get a bit whiffy, no matter what I use or how many times I wash. It’s not every month & as my cycles are gently settling down with the several essential oils I use to help support my hormonal system, then it’s becoming less often…….but I was still searching for a magic ingredient to help at those times. A friend said that Patchouli oil, really helped her & she had struggled for years with smelly underarms. So I gave it a try in the last batch I made, & sure enough I have not had any issues so far. Plus I do love that musky Patchouli scent! It’s often described as the scent of the 60’s, & it wouldn’t be the first time I was called a hippy!
For more information about essential oils & a basic guide on how to use the oils in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit, check out several of my other posts here.

I get most of my healthcare ingredients, jars & bottles from The Soap Kitchen. They have loads of choices, quick shipping (or I collect when I’m in the area, as they are based just over the border in Bideford) & they have FAB customer service.

DIY all-natural detoxifying deodorant recipe

  • 5 tablespoons organic virgin coconut oil- a natural antibacterial
  • 3 tablespoons baking soda- neutralises pH & body odour
  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot or organic cornstarch- absorbs perspiration
  • 2 tablespoons bentonite clay- also helps absorb perspiration & pulls toxins from the skin.
  • Young Living Patchouli essential oil- I think I added about 15 drops, but add to your own scent preference, or any other oils you would like. My husband likes the Purification blend, for it’s amazing odour zapping skills!

I add all the ingredients to a bowl & mash with a fork. My coconut oil was really cold & solid, so I was struggling a bit & left the bowl out in the sun for a few minutes to soften it. In winter I have mashed it by hand to use my body temperature to help soften it too.
As I was making 2 different scented batches, then I added the essential oils once I had split the mix in half.
I split this between 4 small jars, between 60 & 120ml big.

To use we just scoop out a pea sized blob & rub under our arms………& go off on our happy ways smelling delightful all day!

My Young Living story so far

My wonderful Young Living team, Essential Families are holding a bootcamp, & together we are working through Debra Raybern’s book Road to Royal: Your Road Map to Success. 
One of our first challenges is to write up our Young Living story so far. Most of the people are hand writing in notebooks, but I’m a really slow writer & thought I might as well type it up as a blog post. So here goes……

Lucy Wilman (my wonderful upline & Young Living sponsor) & I had met through the baby wearing world many years ago, when we both had less children. We were both members of the early UK online community for people using baby slings (a forum originally called Rumple Bums, which then became the wonderful Natural Mamas forum).

We met at a Sling Meet (I’m guessing in 2008/2009) & were friends on Facebook for several years. Lucy then took a break from Facebook for a few years, so I was pleasantly surprised to see a friend request from her in 2014 & added her. It was soon apparent that she had joined some random company selling essential oils & was only spamming for business (of course I now know, she was just enthusiastically sharing the love!!!) & I quickly unfriended her within a few days. My annoyance was more to do with myself, as I had had a bad experience with a previous MLM (multi level marketing) & was rolling my eyes at her getting sucked into a bad business that would take her no where! (Sorry Lucy, love you really!!!!)

Skip forward to a few months later & Oliver was a small, unhappy refluxy baby & reacting to so many different foods in my milk, that we had turned to a very healthy diet. I was spending a lot of time online while breast feeding, researching the Paleo diet as many friends where having great results with it & we were virtually living it anyway. We just needed to cut out a few other grains & sugar.
While reading all these food blogs, I found that many had other more natural lifestyle options too. Like DIY cleaning products, deodorants (I have a post to write about that soon!) & toothpaste, I kept seeing mentions of Young Living essential oils, especially the Thieves blend.
I did briefly look at the costs & nearly fainted when compared to the cheap oils I could get down the health food store, so quickly dismissed it as an option.

Move on a few more months & I was still finding links all over the place to things I wanted to make & them containing Young Living oils. Combine this with a few friends that had already purchased a kit through Lucy & were raving about their results on Facebook, & then were busy pinning essential oil things on Pinterest then my interest was peaked even more.
I found Lucy again on Facebook & not long after she hosted a Facebook beginners class (contact me if you would like to attend one of these, as I do them regularly) & that was it! I excitedly told Matt all about the premium starter kit & he agreed we could find the money for it. To be honest I did think there were some oils in the kit that we would not really use. It was mostly sleep help & immune support that I was wanting, so fast forward a couple of months & we had started to run out of most of the 11 oils in the kit!!

My first Premium Starter Kit, that I had eagerly grabbed off the delivery man & had the diffuser going within 10 minuets!

My first Premium Starter Kit, that I had eagerly grabbed off the delivery man & had the diffuser going within 10 minuets!

We were using them for so many different things, from bad smells (a cat peed on our community pool table making the whole huge games room STINK!! Purification to the rescue), summer time sniffles, removing sticky patches, aching muscles from helping move 12 tonne of logs, concentration boosting blends for the boys while working on home education projects, emotional support especially for my sensitive oldest boy (the Valor blend was his absolute fave for a very long time!), helping me wake up in the morning (I am NOT a morning person in the slightest!!!). Of course they also helped with the sleep issues & boosting our immune systems. We had had a lot of illness before oils & it was magical in how much they helped!

I very quickly signed up for Essential Rewards (Young Livings monthly wellness box, where you can choose when & what you get, & get free products & points to cash in later for more free products). I was still adamant that I was not going to do it as a business, but was so impressed with how much the oils were helping us, that I couldn’t help but tell friends & family about them. I gave out lots of samples to help peoples various issues & sure enough the oils sell them selves & people were wanting to order Premium Starter Kits……& pay cheques started to arrive on our doorstep each month.

It took me awhile to accept the fact that I was kind of doing it as a business. I realised that even if I was not getting any money, I would still be sharing my excitement & love of the oils, as I just want everyone to experience the huge benefits we receive.
All though I do not have as much time as some people to put into the business side of things, due to home educating the boys & community commitments, I do hope in a few years time we will be earning enough that Matt can give up work. This is not an unrealistic dream, as many members of our teams have got to the point their Young Living wage has way out stripped what they could earn from ‘normal’ jobs, in a relatively short space of time. The kids (& me!) are dreaming that we can go back to Walt Disney World regularly!

So there you go, my Young Living story so far.

What are Essential Oils & how I got started

Essential oils…..Oh, how I love my little bottles of natural goodness!Premium starter kit

I fully jumped into the oily world in November 2014, when I purchased Young Livings Premium Starter Kit through my friend Lucy. I attended one of her Facebook classes & Lucy’s enthusiasm was contagious even through the screen of my laptop. I talked Matt into spending the money on a kit, as it seemed it might have many uses for all of the family.

If I remember rightly he agreed…..while rolling his eyes at yet another faddy thing I would likely drop within a few weeks. (To be fair I do have a short attention span, but I almost always go back to things many, may times!) I thought we might get good use out of a few of the oils for sleep & immune support, but thought the rest would gather dust. Oh how wrong was I?!? In a good way of course!

Within about a week of getting our kit, we had started to use them daily for all sorts of things, from wounds, calming tantrums, removing random sticky patches, clearing bad smells, helping concentration to making natural deodorants. Of course we did get a lot of benefit from the oils to help sleep & our eldest son really responded to the emotional support oils (he is a big worrier!) & we have definitely seen a big improvement in our families immune systems since using oils regularly. In 15 months we have only had 2 lots of colds (& much milder than the people around us in the community), no stomach bugs despite lots going round & the odd sniffle has been nipped in the bud right away! Facebook has the memories app that I love checking daily & going ‘Awwwwww’ over pictures of the boys when tiny or laughing at funny moments I had forgotten, but it has also made me realise just how much illness we had before we discovered oils!

Despite hearing about the wonderful business opportunities Young Living could provide, I was adamant that I was not going to get into the selling side of things (having dabbled in a previous MLM company that just was not for me & has now closed it’s UK market). Well, the oils were giving us such fantastic results in all areas of our lives that I could not help but talk about them, in the same way you would recommend a good book, film or restaurant, & then the cheques started arriving on our doorstep! I was still adamant I was not doing a business for quite a long time, but have come to the happy, content place in my heart that I would still be sharing our amazing results even if no money was involved, so I might as well enjoy the extra money! Our big dream is for me to earn enough that Matt can quit work in the next couple of years. Quite a few members of our Essential Families team have got to this point with their Young Living business in fairly short spaces of time, so it’s not an unreasonable dream. Mostly I just want to share & help improve peoples lives with such simple & natural products.

  • What are essential oils?

In short, they are the life blood and immune response system of plants.  When extracted through careful steam distillation or cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted.  Essential oils have a very similar makeup to our own human cells.  This allows essential oils to be easily accepted by our bodies and have a profound therapeutic effect as they move quickly through biological barriers and get into or blood stream and tissue. Different plants contain different properties that help that plant thrive in its environment.  Absorbing those properties allows us to do the same, allowing us to thrive too!  Essential oils have been around for thousands of years. Mentioned in the Bible some 200 times and in ancient medical tests; today they are fast becoming much more than the aromatherapy of the 1970’s. Science is continually discovering new multifaceted aspects of true 100% therapeutic pure essential oils.

  • What can they help with?
  1. Can help increase positive emotional states
  2. Support overall wellbeing & promote a healthy immune system
  3. May help support better digestive function
  4. Provide support for the nervous system
  5. May aid in removing toxins 
  6. Could increase your ability to absorb nutrients
  7. Help in purifying your living space
  8. Could help improve the appearance of skin
  9. Help inspire a sense of peace!

I know these descriptions may seem very vague, but in many countries essential oils are not regulated in anyway, which means we are not allowed to make health claims. This does not mean that people do not have huge successes with essential oils, just that they have to be very careful in how they word it. Because they are not regulated in many countries, it also means that a bottle can be sold & labelled as 100% pure essential oil, but there are no guarantees what else is in the bottle. Fillers, perfumes, chemicals & other oils could all be added to baulk out the possibly tiny amount of essential oil in the bottle. Which brings me on to my next point…….

  • Why Young Living?

As Young Living - Seed to Sealwell as being the highest grade possible Young Living is a world renowned company, founded over twenty years ago. Young Living are a fantastic example of an ethical international company. They grow their own plants/trees on farms all over the world with strict regulations, and they do not use chemicals or pesticides. They hand weed and use a mixture of their own essential oils as a natural pesticide! They also have an open farm policy where anyone can visit their farms to see how they operate, and even participate. I’d LOVE to visit their lavender fields one day! They use a proprietary, low-temp, low-pressure steam distillation method to produce their oils, and have in-house, as well as third-party testing in place for every batch of oils. No one else offers this standard and this is why I feel confident in using these essential oils for myself and my family For more detailed information about the Seed to Seal process see www.seedtoseal.com

  • What’s in the starter kit?

For £146.88, the Premium Starter Kit comes with all 11 oils (Thieves, frankincense, lemon, lavender, peppermint, Purification, R.C, Copabia, DiGize, PanAway & the bonus oil, Stress Away), a dewdrop diffuser, samples, roller ball attachment, catalogue and educational materials. You save over £100 when you purchase the kit as a wholesale member, compared to buying them individually at retail price.

Premium Starter Kit & how to use the oils

essential oils It is important to know that Young Living essential oils do not cure, prevent or treat any disease or illness. Our bodies are designed to heal themselves; this is the purpose of our immune system. However, when our bodies are not functioning at their optimal performance, it has been our experience that essential oils can give our bodies some extra support in a natural way without harmful side effects.

Anything that is shared is based on our personal experience by using Young Living oils and products. It is not intended to diagnose or cure any medical condition. I am not a doctor & any information or advice given on this blog is meant to help educate & inform you. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. You should always check with your healthcare provider before starting something new. Right, lets get started shall we?

  • How to use essential oils

There are 2 main ways to use Essential Oils.

Inhale: You can simply breathe them in, either by putting on your hands and inhaling, putting in a diffuser, or inhaling straight from the bottle.

Topical: Our skin is our largest organ: what we put on it gets taken into the system and either used, stored or filtered out. This isn’t new science, think of the nicotine patch or a birth control patch. I use carrier oils to apply oils to the skin. A carrier is a quality vegetable or fruit oil used for diluting your essential oils. I love Young Livings V6 oil that is a blend of various vegetable oils (it sinks in really fast & the pump bottles are really handy!). We also use coconut oil and grape seed oil, but you can also use hemp, avocado, jojoba or olive oil. Apply oils topically to your feet, spine, chest or area of concern. It’s always recommended to use a carrier oil when applying oils topically to children, until you feel comfortable doing otherwise.

Safety tips using Essential Oils

1. Please never put essential oils directly into your eyes or ears as this could cause damage. Placing a few drops of oil on a cotton ball, then placing the cotton ball in your ear is recommended.

2. Our citrus oils are photosensitive. If you apply them topically, you will want to avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours so that you don’t burn.

3. It’s always recommended to use a carrier oil when applying oils topically to children, until you feel comfortable doing otherwise.

4. When using essential oils in your bath, add a few drops to Epsom salt first, then put salt into bath water. This will help the oils to adhere to something, so that you don’t have them just sitting on top of the water.

5. If you apply an oil topically and it feels uncomfortable, apply a carrier oil over it, then wipe away with a cloth. The carrier oil will gently carry the essential oil off your skin.

6. Please keep your oils stored in a cool, dark place and avoid extreme temperatures, hot or cold. This will ensure your oils remain at their best.Premium Starter Kit

  • Premium starter kit

For  £146.88 (including tax & shipping), the Premium Starter Kit comes with all 11 oils, a dewdrop diffuser, samples, roller ball attachment, catalogue and educational materials. Below I will run through all the oils & a few ways in which we use them & find them invaluable. You’ll notice the retail prices after each oil and the diffuser—this is to show you how much value this starter kit truly is. Each 5ml bottle has approximately 90 drops in it & you use so little each time, so they really last. Once you purchase the starter kit, you are now a wholesale member and can purchase everything at a 24% off discount.

dewdrop diffuserDewdrop diffuser

In the premium starter kit you get a Dewdrop diffuser. (There are 5 other diffuser models available from Young Living, including the gorgeous Aria diffuser, that one day I will own!). This one retails for £62.70 and functions as a humidifier, atomiser, and aroma diffuser in one simple-to-use product. Its ultrasonic technology breaks any mixture of essential oils and water into millions of microparticles, dispersing them into the air, and releasing the constituents found in essential oils. Custom designed with up to four hours of continuous run diffusion, automatic shut-off, and ambient light control, Young Living’s Dewdrop Diffuser can transform any space into a spa-like atmosphere.

 

 

ThievesThieves

This is the oil that most peaked my interest & that I kept hearing & reading people raving about before we got our first kit. We use this almost every day for immune support. We also really love many of the additional Thieves products that are available, including the Thieves cleaner, toothpaste & foaming hand soap. Thieves retails for £28.80 (15ml) and was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of Clove, Rosemary, and other botanicals which they used to protect themselves while robbing the dead and dying during the European Plague. They were captured & the King promised them a pardon in return for sharing their secret as to why they were not dead! This oil is considered a “hot oil”, please use a carrier oil when applying topically.

  • Best choice for fighting germs

  • Diffuse to help purify air

A few things to keep in mind about Peppermint:

1. Peppermint is a hot oil, please keep it away from your eyes – it will burn! Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

2. A good rule of thumb for kids is: 1 and under, avoid Peppermint. 3 and under, Peppermint on feet ONLY. 5 and under, belly button and below ONLY.

3. Peppermint has been known to decrease milk supply in nursing mamas. Use sparingly if you are breastfeeding.

Frankincensefrankincense

Frankincense retails for £25.50 (5ml), has a woodsy aroma and includes the naturally occurring constituent alpha-pinene. We diffuse it when we need some extra comfort or grounding, but I also add it to our immune support roll on mix that we use daily. Here is the recipe we use-

Immunity System Support Roll-on 10 drops Frankincense 10 drops Lemon 10 drops Thieves Olive Oil or carrier oil of choice. Add all ingredients into an empty bottle, attach roll-on top. We roll this mix on our feet every day & also down the spines if at the slightest hint of illness.

  • May help reduce nervous irritability

  • Diffuse for a comforting aroma
  • Diffuse during meditation to help with grounding and purpose

 

lavenderLavender

I never used to like lavender, until I got my Premium Starter kit & smelt the pure therapeutic grade Lavender form Young Living. It turns out that most lavender scented products these days have synthetic lavender in & it’s that scent that would make me gag! We go through so much of it, as all 3 boys love it being diffused at bedtime, often combined with other good sleep inducing oils. Lavender retails for £19.20 (15ml), and is a popular essential oil, long loved for its calming, soothing fragrance.
