I thought this was a funny meme since earlier I saw someone had referred to oils being “usually pushed by snake oil salesmen”.
Let’s set the record straight, I am not going to push anything on anyone. I am just sharing things I am figuring out along the way. Sharing is caring right? You can take it or leave it. So here is what I am figuring out today, when I was going to go to the beach but ended up figuring out my ER order and enjoying being at home with my pups with the windows open and the cicadas singing.
My oil of choice is Young Living. Yes, it is more expensive than other brands but if you are fully embracing an oily lifestyle you will be buying enough to reap the benefits of free monthly promotional items as well as accumulating points to get MORE free stuff. In my opinion it is set up this way to get to you to incorporate oils into all aspects of your daily life. And mind you this is all without having to sell anything to anyone. You can fully utilize all that Young Living has to offer without being a “snake oil salesman” or you can explore the business side if you wanted. The choice is yours. Today I am just sharing how I am affording to incorporate these oils into my life. It has taken a little investment and a few months to really get the maximum promotions but this month I am HERE and next month will be even easier because I will be 4 months in and earning twice as many points per order.
First things first things first…I bought the kit. This is when I began drinking the Kool Aid. I was completely new to oils and had nothing to start with. This is obviously designed to get you everything you need to get started, at a significant savings and lots to work with.

I signed up for Essential Rewards which gives you points for purchases and free stuff the more you spend. The only catch is spending $50 a month, but that is super easy once you get your oily groove on.
This is a photo taken in my second month. I had already used and replaced the Peppermint and Lavender, as well as adding a few blends into the mix. Below is the Facebook post I had made after someone inquired as to what I was doing with my oil besides diffusing it.
All of these are incorporated into my daily life. This is not to say they are the only ones I use but these are worked into my routine…which you know I gotta have routines.
Valor: morning on ankles. In roller with peppermint and lavender for sporadic use throughout the day.
Peppermint and Endoflex on lower back in morning.
Endoflex on thyroid at bed time.
Lavender at bedtime..misted, rolled, neat…whatever
Abundance: diffused at home and work. As perfume.
Lemon or other citrus in water… with fresh lemon.
Frankincense in lotion for face and neck.
Peppermint and Lavender mister: as needed.
Copaiba for Sadie dog (me as needed). Anti inflammatory twice a day internally (one drop) to help her arthritis.
Sadie gets a little lavender rubbed on her underside with coconut oil because I just think it’s soothing.
I am using even more now. Thieves in my cleaning bottles and Citrus Fresh in my water and/or kombucha. A lot of R.C. lately all over my chest because of sinus/respiratory issues along with the Deep Relief roller, again for sinus headaches lately. As well as Stress Away in diffuser and topically. I could go on but you get the gist. I basically either A. Google what I think I need help with. or B. Google an oil I am not sure what to do with. I am getting to know and love them one at a time. And whereas I used to think I could only handle one at a time, I am literally using many singles and blends all over me as needed throughout the day. Although En-R-Gee and I are having a hard time becoming friends. It is an overwhelming oil for me stimulation and scent wise.
This month I am restocking a few items and trying out some new ones. Along with my order I added a few things to sell at The Creative Wedge to go along with our new diffuser jewelry and a few items for a friends who are not interested in keeping up with an account of their own.
And here I am…I rearranged my order and am spending just a hair over what I needed for the full 300PV freebies. Noooo, you know I don’t have kids but I am sure I will make good use out of the ready to roll on blends made for them. I mean really age is just a state of mind right?
And after it is all processed I will have roughly $99 worth of points to spend on whatever I want! Folk’s that is a lot of stuff and it really evens the playing field of the cost aspect of this brand. And let me state again…all that without selling anyone anything.
