There are some CRAZY FUN things happening this month and for the rest of the year...make sure you read to the end so you don't miss anything!

October 2017 Young Living Promos (read: FREEBIES)

If you're newer around here, the PV promos are a gift from Young Living when you place an order of the indicated PV amount. You wanna grab 300 PV worth of wellness for your home? They say, "SURE! Why don't we go ahead and send you $196 worth of goodies on top of that too?"

Who does that?! Young Living does. Because more than anything, they want us to have and use these products. It's the coolest.


SO, let's break it down!

When you order 300 PV, you will receive:

1. Super C chewables 90 count

Vitamin C for the win. Super C combines Orange essential oil with a blend of camu camu, acerola, cherry, and rose hips fruit powder to create a super powerful immune-supporting supplement. Together, these ingredients give us polyphenols, carotenoids, and optimal amounts of vitamin C.

It's chewable, it's convenient, it's what you'll be loading up on throughout fall and winter. Take 1-3 daily, or as needed. Pro tip: it's always good to have food in your belly when you chew 'em up.

2. Breathe Again Roll-On

We love roll-ons for how easy they are! And as we get into the swing of school, sports, holidays, and being busy busy busy, it's the best to have something in your purse / car / anywhere that you can just roll right on!

It has oils that pack a punch like Peppermint, Myrtle, Copaiba, and FOUR types of Eucalyptus. Great for getting your morning off to a great start, breathing easy all day long, using before, during and after a workout... the list goes on. Here's a fun one: Apply Breathe Again to your back, neck, or chest before a steamy shower for an invigorating aromatic experience. WOO!

3. 15ml DiGize

You likely got this one in your Premium Starter Kit, and if you've ever used DiGize, you KNOW how incredible it is. Sure, it's not everyone's favorite smell, but its benefits are #worthit AM I RIGHT?! I order DiGize regularly, so I'm excited to be getting it for free this month and to put my PV into something else fun! It's one of those that you never, ever, ever want to go without. I love when tummies are happy, and I will fight to keep them that way! DiGize helps me to do just that.

4. 15ml Raven

This is a bonus you'll only receive when doing your monthly Essential Rewards order! Not on ER yet? Check out this video and HOP ON IT, friend! https://youtu.be/j5jATGFmED8

Raven is a cleansing blend of Ravintsara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus Radiata. Raven creates a cooling sensation when applied topically to the chest and throat. It’s especially wonderful for ages 6+ and one of my top choices for diffusing when we'd like breathing support at night.

5. 5ml Cinnamon Bark Vitality

Another bonus for your Essential Rewards order! This one is all about healthy digestion and a healthy immune system. You’ll find it in Thieves, Inner Defense, and Abundance, to name a few. Add a drop or two to your NingXia Red for a “hot shot. Dilute 1–2 drops in a vegetarian gel capsule and take as a dietary supplement to support your regular digestion. Take a banana smoothie to a sweet new level with a drop of Cinnamon Bark Vitality. Use a drop to spice up your hot cereal. Substitute Cinnamon Bark Vitality in any recipe that calls for ground cinnamon. Obsessed.


At 250 PV, you will receive Breathe Again and DiGize. When on your ER order, you’ll also get the Raven and Cinnamon Bark Vitality. 


At 190 PV, you will receive DiGize. When on your ER, Raven and Cinnamon Bark Vitality will come too! 


At 100 PV on ER, you’ll get Cinnamon Bark Vitality.

fall favorites graphic

My current Fall favorites!

  • BXB by Jenny Buxton scarves- These scarves are PERFECT!  Right on trend, and they come with a removable leather cuff that you can add oils to and have your own little diffuser right by your nose!  
  • Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton - This guy is such an amazing resource for Team YL!  He's been a blessing to me over the years... he is great at making complicated subjects easy to digest and understand. Check out his youtube page (linked) and be sure to add yourself to his facebook group E.O.C. (Essential Oil Club)
  • Where The Light Gets In - not oils related, but this album by Jason Gray is a favorite for our family.
  • Essential Rewards - Seriously, I've earned 500 points (which equals $500 of free stuff) so far this year!  All because we buy the things we need from Young Living.  Win win!
