The Oily Life

Essential oils are all the rage these days. If you are on any social media platform, I’m sure you have heard of them. If you’re a mama concerned about what you are exposing your children to day in and out, I know you have at least looked into what all these people are raving about. I actually started using oils in the early 2000s after a car accident, but didn’t really start using them consistently until about a year ago. I (like many) was wary of trying something new, that could add costs to my budget, etc. But after watching my friend post on FB and Instagram constantly about the amazing things oils were doing for her family, I decided to reach out to her and start using essential oils myself. To say I was hooked is an understatement. The minute I opened my first box of oils, I was hooked instantly. I now use oils for everything and haven’t looked back.

Here’s a picture of most of my stash.  But I use all of them I promise! And more!


Here’s a brief run down of how I use oils every single day:

  • For the kiddos – Young Living has a kids line (Kidscents) and I use them every single day. Oils to encourage restful sleep, stop the owies, hold off the sniffles, and “fix” upset bellies. My boys ask for their oils, especially when they get an owie! If daddy’s tummy is upset, our youngest always runs to the oils and says “tummy oil.” They know they work.
  • Skincare – I use oils on my face every morning and night for even, clear skin; I also use Young Living skin care products such as moisturizers, toners, makeup, etc.
  • Wellness – I’d rather be proactive rather than reactive so I use oils every day to promote wellness in our family
  • Encourage Sound Sleep – SLEEP! This is WHY I took that leap of faith and got started with oils officially. I use oils for the boys every single night. And they sleep. I put oils on their feet and spine and in a diffuser in their room. Tim and I also have a diffuser in our room.
  • And so much more!


I started with a Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 11 of Young Living’s most popular oils, a diffuser, Ningxia Red and samples. And it’s an amazing deal. Here’s what you get in the starter kit!

BUT…did you know that Young Living is more than just oils?!?! My favorite non-oil thing is definitely Ningxia Red. What’s Ningxia Red? Well, according to Jack it looks like blood, in my opinion tastes amazing, and provides total antioxidant support. With some essential oils included of course.


We use Young Living protein powder, post-workout amino support, supplements and vitamins too.

But even better…natural, chemical-free makeup! Savvy Minerals is amazing! Young Living released the makeup line in June of 2017 and I’ve already switched all of my make up. Want some for yourself?

Did you know that the products you use to clean your house and keep your family safe are LOADED with chemicals and toxins? Have you ever noticed that your hands feel terrible after using cleaning products? Yeah. Because those products are chemicals. Guess what??? You can ditch and switch to Young Living Thieves cleaning products. And I PROMISE YOU. You will NOT regret it. I absolutely ADORE all things Thieves.
