I recently got my very first starter kit of oils with Young Living, and I was instantly hooked. It was such a deal to get a beautiful diffuser and 11 oils to jumpstart this whole oily lifestyle! (If you’re wanting to get started, I can’t recommend it enough! such a good bundle deal, plus 24% off forever, no fees or obligations, and the BEST community and info and goodies galore!!!) Before my kit even came in the mail, I was making a list of what oils I’d want to order next… and order, I did.
You guys. I got SO MANY OILS in my first monthly box. (Monthly boxes are an option if you want! It’s called Essential Rewards and it’s free to sign up and you basically just earn points for everything you spend, and you can get FREEBIES, hollaaaaaaa.)
I may or may not have gone overboard. It’s fine. But hear me out… the freebies this month were INSANE and all things I wanted to have on hand for the germy fall and winter seasons anyway, so it made sense to spend more to get literally almost $250 worth of products FOR FREE. And on top of that I earned points back for future oils… gah, so good.
Okay! So, what did I get?!
Here are all the oils I ordered right after my starter kit:
Northern Lights Black Spruce // I actually bought this one when I got my kit, because I had heard such rave reviews! it’s my FAVE now. rich, woodsy, invigorating. perfect to diffuse during meditation. mix with stress away for a smell just like the heavenly madewell store!
Eucalyptus Globulus // uplifting, refreshing. add a few drops to your face lotion, or a drop on the shower floor in the morning.
Nutmeg Vitality // sweet and spicy. has cognitive function support, immune support, and powerful antioxidants. add to baked goods, or a drop in your pumpkin spice tea. diffuse with clove, orange, and cedarwood for the perfect fall blend!
Citronella // slightly citrusy. keep those bugs away! make a roller with lemongrass + cedarwood + rosemary + tea tree to apply before being in the buggy outdoors.
Sacred Mountain // a blend of ylang yang and comfier oils. promises feelings of strength, empowerment, grounding, and protection when diffused.
Cedarwood // the first one I put in my cart!! warm and woodsy. great for calming! add to shampoo for shiny hair. diffuse with lavender and frankincense for dreamy sleep.
German Chamomile // full disclosure: this smells NASTY. creates feelings of peace and patience. is okay when blended with other things! I want to try roman chamomile instead… I see more people referencing that one so maybe it’s better!
Purification // keeps your home smelling fresh and clean! a bestseller. a blend of citronella, lavandin, lemongrass, rosemary, myrtle, and tea tree.
Grapefruit Vitality // invigorating citrus scent, delicious tart taste. add a drop to your water or la croix!
RC // a blend of spruce, cypress, and three types of eucalyptus. diffuse before, during, or after a workout for energy and motivation!
Wintergreen // refreshing and minty! add to your lotion. diffuse with any woodsy scent for a christmas/winter vibe.
Lime Vitality // a great citrus zip! add to food, drinks, cocktails/mocktails, berries, etc.
Ginger Vitality // add a drop to tea, add to lemonade for a spicy twist, mix with marinades/salad dressings for a warm and spicy note.
Rosemary // robust and herbaceous. mix in your shampoo for healthier-looking hair. diffuse to freshen the air and enjoy a woodsy, energizing aroma. great with grapefruit!
Tea Tree // one of the most widely used oils! super versatile. great for acne spot treatments, diffuse to combat home odors, great for cleaning products, etc.
Orange Vitality // the perfectly sweet addition to all your favorite fall blends! great added in la croix or your smoothie for a bright note.
Valor // it’s blue!!! a woodsy and positive scent mixes black spruce, blue tansy, and frankincense. smells like a woodsy blueberry… it’s amazing. diffuse with any citrus oils for an uplifting, affirming scent!
Spearmint Vitality // helps calm tummies and easy digestion. sweeter and softer taste than peppermint vitality!
Manuka (Essential Rewards freebie!) // similar to tea tree, but a little woodsier. great to mix with face lotions for healthy skin and less blemishes.
Clove Vitality (Essential Rewards freebie!) // spicy and sweet! great for immunity boosting. mix with gingerbread, molasses cookies, other fall goodies. substitute for ground clove in any recipe! great to diffuse in the fall with orange.
DiGize (Essential Rewards freebie!) // combines tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, lemongrass, anise, and patchouli. spicy and aromatic. relaxing and calming! rub on your tummy for comfort with any upsets.
ImmuPower (Essential Rewards freebie!) // a powerful blend that encourages positive energy. perfect to diffuse in fall!
Inner Defense soft gels (Essential Rewards freebie!) // take once daily to keep your immune system in good shape, or take more than once a day when you feel something coming on! ps— these capsules aren’t vegan. :(
Thieves foaming hand soap (Essential Rewards freebie!) // the perfectly spicy holiday scent we know and love of thieves, in a great foaming soap! great to ward off germs in the winter.
CRAZY. I know.
I’m so excited about all of these goodies and have literally been using them constantly since they showed up… it was like Christmas morning! I’m currently diffusing stress away + peppermint as I write this, and it smells like candy canes so I’m just really in the spirit. ;)
