October Freebies — over $300 of free things we use all the time!

It’s one of my favorite months of the year!! The time of the year when things *finally* start to cool down here in Texas. Praise the Lord. This month the promos are COMPLETELY AMAZING. These are not all caps for play… They blow me out of the water especially because there were several things on this picture in my cart that I now get to take out and choose something new. YL knows what we need and when! AND almost $400 of product FREE for a $400 order? Ummm yes please!

Better still, during October they added an exclusive Seed to Seal® collection! By reaching 400 PV, you’ll receive the Seed to Seal® Story Collection that features a one-of-a-kind bundle of 5-ml Lavender, Peppermint, and Tea Tree essential oils. WHAT?? I want that!

What do you get for free this month?

This is so cool! Not only is it gorgeous and includes oils that every house needs, but I love that it is all about the spirit of YL and our awesome seed to seal products.

Get your greens in even during the season of sweets and treats! Take MultiGreens daily to boost vitality by supporting your immune system.*
Take these capsules—made with spirulina, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, and Pacific kelp—an hour before deliciously rich meals.

These are a must have in every home and were one of the items I was already ordering. I like taking these because I feel like they give me energy, but the main reason- they give me the greens I KNOW I don’t get in my diet. Also, in my kids’ diet. The day I learned about opening the multigreens capsules in our smoothies was a game changing day. I do this ALL the time now!

 5-ml Palo Santo
Cleanse the atmosphere with Palo Santo before family and friends arrive. This sweet, woodsy aroma will warm up any space where moments are shared and memories are made.

Dilute 1 drop of Palo Santo with 1 drop of V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for a massage that feels and smells like a day at the spa after a day full of physical activity and family fun.

This one smells so amazing to diffuse! It also has so many other benefits and I encourage you to pull out your reference guide or app and check them out! My favorite way is to drop this in my salt bath!

 15-ml Thyme
Unwind with a massage after a long day full of pumpkin decorating and fall baking. Dilute 1 drop of Thyme with 4 drops of V-6 and rub deeply into muscles and joints.

Create scent memories with loved ones by diffusing a drop of Thyme with Eucalyptus and Lime. Gathering will be extra sweet as you enjoy the season of giving!

Fall cooking is made even better with this oil too! Add a drop or even a toothpick with with even less (a little goes a long way in your cooking) to a dish to make it super yummy!

5-ml AromaEase
Make your home the center of comfort by diffusing AromaEase. Its blend of Ginger, Peppermint, and Fennel essential oils is the perfect aroma for post-feasting relaxation.

Dilute 1 drop of AromaEase with 1 drop of V-6 and rub onto your abdomen. The warm aroma will help you find contentment as you unwind in a cozy home with those you love.

And if you are pregnant… this is a MUST HAVE for first trimester.

Fill your kitchen with the spicy, sweet aroma of Cinnamon Bark. Get started with holiday festivities early by blending it with Orange, Clove, and Nutmeg!

Run soapy water down the drain and drop in 5 drops of Cinnamon Bark and 3 drops of Lemon to freshen a musty-smelling garbage disposal after dinner dishes.

Infuse a bottle of olive oil with 15-20 drops of Oregano Vitality. Mix it with vinegar on a small plate and dip in crusty bread to make an easy appetizer.

September Freebies

sept promo


September promos are off the hook – a family wellness kit for FREE!! Truly, there is something here for everyone! And now with YL GO, Young Living’s version of Amazon prime’s Shipping subscription (but better ), there is legit no reason to not hop on Essential Rewards today!


 Clove Vitality 5ml (ER exclusive): Let me break it down friends, Clove oil is the most concentrated antioxidant known with an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of over 1,000,000. By comparison the ORAC score for blueberries is only 2,400.  So yeah, we’re talking immune system support! Also wonderful to dilute and rub on the gums for oral health.

Any bakers? Just google Clove Oil and fall recipes and you will come up with lots of fun ways to use Clove Vitality. Aromatically, Clove encourages sleep, stimulates dreams, and creates a sense of protection and courage.

 DiGize 15ml (ER exclusive): also comes in Vitality, As the name states, this oil is fantastic for supporting healthy digestion. I often like to tell people that oils are most effective when continuously used and I still stand by that but this oil is instant gratification for most people.

Your tummy is feeling off? Over ate? Use it and sweet relief within minutes ! Some love this directly dropped under their tongue or massaged under the navel on stomach.

 Inner Defense: We call this supplement the first responder in our house. When someone needs some immune support and ALWAYS when we travel, we take this. This supplement contains Oregano, Clove, Thyme, Lemon, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary and Cinnamon.

It’s basically like Thieves but with Oregano and Lemongrass added in. So The power of thieves and then some. Pretty much this: = Inner Defense. I also suggest taking with food! Lots of hot oils in there.

Thieves Hand Foaming Soap: Plant based, gentle and power packed with Thieves, lemon and orange essential oils. Contains no sulfates, dyes, synthetic fragrances or harsh chemicals. If you haven’t started replacing everyday household items in your home yet, now is the time to do it for free.

Young Living is so much more than oils and supplements! The majority of my ER order isn’t actually oils – it’s lifestyle products! Once you fall in love with this, you can order the soap refill and fill her up.

5ml Manuka: Gorgeous skin is never out of season! Boy do I love this oil for my skin. It has very similar properties to tea tree oil but the aroma is completely different, woodsy and thicker to the touch. Blemish prone skin? This plus our Acne Treatment and you’re set. It’s also wonderful for a healthy scalp – add a couple drops to your shampoo.

ImmuPower 15ml:  Is how I feel about this one! Do you guys know what this oil does?!! Ok so the name pretty much says it but let’s break it down. This blends includes, Hyssop, Mountain Savory, Cistus, Camphor, Frankincense, Oregano, Clove, Cumin, and Dorado Azul. 

That’s Like half the oils in the Oils of Ancient Scripture Kit (and remember those oils are like raindrop oils – they do all the things) plus some power houses like Dorado Azul, Oregano and Cumin Seed oil. Use this daily. Your cells and DNA will thank you!

So who is ready to jump on YL Go /YL Go Plus and grab up the 300pv promo?! All of these products added up at your member price is $181.75 AND if you’re at 20% on ER you get $60 in ER points back! Deal.

August Freebies!

I’m so excited for this month’s freebies! YL is totally helping us get ready for school and winter!


Let me break it down for you:

Spearmint 5 ml (ER exclusive): A fave in many oily homes! It is not as hot to the skin as peppermint so topically a great EO for the kids’ tummies and preggo Mamas — it is a MUST have for pregnant mamas experiencing some of those morning (or all day) tummy woes! Rub a few drops over your liver before you get out of bed in the morning and thank me later ! And it’s just a yummy oil to diffuse with any of your citrus oils for some added minty freshness. 

 Ravintsara 5 ml (ER exclusive): I am SO excited to see this as a one of the promo oils!! I LOVE the smell of this one and needed more! Apply to your chest for easy breathing; this is a must have as we prepare for the fall. Like to make your own chest rubs? Add a few drops of Ravintsara, Copaiba, Frankincense, and Thieves with some coconut oil and you are ready to go! This oil is also known to be clarifying, stimulating, and purifying. It helps to clear brain fog and strengthen your motivation. Who is ready to crush some goals with this oil?!‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️

 Wintergreen 15 ml: EEK! This is another fav of mine! Good for all things MUSCLE related, use before or after your workouts! I love using this oil on my shoulders, knees and elbows as the tingling sensation feels amazing. Aromatically, Wintergreen stimulates and increases awareness on all levels of the sensory system so this is a good one to diffuse if you have never tried it. It is also a Raindrop all – and you know Raindrop oils do #allthethings…. so we ALWAYS have Wintergreen YLEO on hand. This oil is also amazing if you get that head/neck tension … it’s a go to of mine!

Aroma Siez 15 ml: Y’all!! I just ordered a bottle of this one last month bc omg this oil is a recently discovered life/head saver for me. One of its biggest uses is for tension and when I rub it on my head and neck – all my tension just goes away.

Have YOU tried this oil yet? Well, for those Raindroppers out there, you have. Your muscles just melt with this oil. This blend of Basil, Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint, and Cypress is a travel favorite of mine. Perfect for long car rides or flights, so if you have any end of summer travel, be sure to pack this one with you! And for #AlltheWorkouts, this is a go-to oil. Try it and your legs, back and every other body part will thank you.

Bamboo Oil Bar: Ok how cute is that little oil display?!  I mean…if there is anything an oiler likes it is storage for our oils! I think I am going to put this little one in my kitchen by my diffuser or maybe my bed. Where are you going to put yours?

Acceptance 5 ml:  Ok, who is excited about this oil?  I LOVE the smell of this one and actually have needed to order a new bottle for awhile now. Acceptance stimulates the mind, compelling us to open and accept new things, people, or relationships in life, allowing one to reach a higher potential. It also helps us overcome procrastination and denial….like what?!!! Did you guys read that?!! Procrastination, I’m coming for you! (goes to order a GALLON!)

January Freebies

Who is ready to ring in the New Year with incredible wellness?!!
Young Living is setting us up for success in our New Years resolutions with these fantastic January PROMOS!
 15 ml Copaiba: One of my faves from the Premium Starter kit but in 15 ml! WOOT! This oil was on my ER for this month already and now i get to change it to something else! (I love when that happens!) Now remember this is a vitality oil too so I will give some vitality options as well for usage suggestions because um, in my house, that is where it is AT. Topically this oils works wonders for your skin, it is soothing and calming and great to rub on top of other oils. I love to layer this over Panaway. A very effective way to use this oil is internally. It is an oil that literally calms me down within minutes. Using this oil BEFORE a stressful situation is a great technique to get used to. A great way to give this to your kids is to add a drop to their Ningxia or a drop to some honey. It has such a subtle flavor. It is also a great oil for sleep. When we are going through stressful situations, often our sleep takes a toll. Combine this with some Lavender and Frankincense for some incredible sleep and supported emotions. 5 ml Panaway: I LOVE when the promos replace my fave oils from the Premium Starter kit. And again, Helichrysum is in this oil, I mean, I may have a thing for that oil and all the blends it is in. Any temporary discomfort, this is your jam! This is also fabulous to use when you are sitting for long hours if you have a desk job or you are traveling. Your feet, legs and calves will LOVE some of this rubbed to them. Go grab your resources and look up what Helichrysum, Clove, Wintergreen, and Peppermint do – these are all the single oils in this blend. We love adding a roller ball to the top of this one and rolling away with it. Super Cal PLUS: I can’t even handle YL giving this supplement to us for FREE because I LOVE it and I am not sure you all know why it’s so great…but I’m about to tell you all! (It’s a good amount info – you ready?!)

Super Cal Plus offers more than just calcium and minerals—it’s a true bone-health supplement. One of the main distinguishing ingredients are marine minerals from red algae grown in Iceland. This plant based calcium ingredient is delivered in a powerful matrix of 72 trace minerals naturally derived from algae. Unlike rock based calcium that contains little to no supplemental trace minerals, this ingredient has proven bioavailability due to its unique structure and spectrum of minerals.

To support the route of calcium from the digestive system to the bones, it is crucial to provide Vitamin D, Vitamin K, and Magnesium. These co-factors work through complex biochemistry to deliver the calcium and other minerals as bone deposits.

Another unique and powerful ingredient in Super Cal Plus, is a fermented polysaccharide complex from a new strain of black yeast. This ingredient has been shown to support osteoblast function and the delicate ratio of bone remodeling. This ingredient supports bone density by potentially mimicking the function of estrogen. In clinical studies black yeast was shown to slow the process of osteoporosis .

Because of the powerful ingredients in this product, we can make strong claims about osteoporosis, which is actually listed on the bottle! “A daily recommended dose of calcium and Vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.” BOOM.

PLUS, you know how most calcium is chalky or a huge pill that you have to swallow or chew? This is the first one I have ever seen that’s packed neatly in a vegetable capsule and easy to swallow!

 5 ml Deep Relief (ER exclusive): Ok if you haven’t tried deep relief before, you are in for a treat. Deep Relief on your neck when you slept on it wrong, using it for the occasional headache, or on my lower back then maybe i twisted a little too far. This blend is for all the muscle soothing. People, it has Helichrysum in it. Need I say more? Plus i have never seen it offered outside the roller! Perfect for dropping onto the area in need! So if you are joining the gym for the New Year, have nursing mama shoulders, travel frequently, or just need a blend that will love on your muscles – this is IT.

 5 ml Spearmint Vitality (ER exclusive): Who has some weight management goals this year? Support your metabolism with this vitality oil by adding a couple drops to your water, tea or Ningxia. Wonderful for the digestive system, this is a family favorite in our house. It is not as hot to the skin as peppermint so topically we use on kids’ tummies.

This is a MUST have for pregnant mamas experiencing some of those morning (or all day) tummy woes! Rub a few drops over your liver before you get out of bed in the morning. And it’s just a yummy vitality oil to mix with any of your fave citrus vitalities for some added minty freshness. 

 Now who is getting themselves some freebies this month?  This girl is getting them and getting them ALL twice because they’re THAT good ❤️

Thieves Mouthwash: On a Budget

Are you ditching the chemicals out of your bathroom? Don’t forget your mouthwash! Last year, I used the “Think Dirty, Shop Clean” app and scanned our favorite mouthwash and found this:

15134408_10105142884884500_1315849984_n  15175522_10105142884854560_622556287_n

So then we ditched those and switched to Thieves Mouthwash! No alcohol, synthetic dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives! AND infused with essential oils! Hubby and I LOVE it! But want to see how we make it last longer?! We use this recipe our friend Holly shared with us!


Here is a DIY that I use during the day to freshen up!

Here is an easy mouth freshener to keep in your car or purse! I used this bottle from Amazon!
