Preparing for Winter With Essential Oils

Good morning! I get a lot of emails about essential oils. Do I still use them? Do they help me? The answer is YES! I love my essential oils and I use them everyday.

In 2012 I started using essential oils because I was having hormonal issues and I wanted to try a more natural alternative.

I began sharing about the oils on my blog and I was overwhelmed with all the women who were having the same problems and wanted to try them.

essential-oilsI was inundated with emails and questions and truthfully it was more than I could handle so I stopped writing about them.

Also, it seemed every blogger in bogland was sharing them, and it was oversaturated. I felt some people were using them for a week and then putting them on their blog.

Maybe I’m wrong but that’s what it felt like to me. That seems to have died down so I feel like I can start sharing about them again.

Plus, we have changed some things around and we have a private facebook group that is awesome!

With winter quickly approaching, I am gearing up with essential oils and supplements. I keep several oils on hand in case we start to get sick but I also take supplements to help keep the germs and sickness away.

One thing I have already started doing is diffusing Thieves essential oil in my house. It smells amazing and makes every room smell like fall baking.

Diffusing Thieves can support a healthy immune system and energizes your body.

The best way to get started with Young Living Essential Oils is to order a Premium Starter Kit and start diffusing them in your home. The Basic kit is $160 and it’s the one I recommend. You can get started here.

By ordering a Premium Starter Kit, you get the wholesale price for all your future orders which is definitely worth it.

The Premium starter kit has some of my favorite oils in it, including Stress Away. Who couldn’t use a little stress away?

During the month of November and December if you order a Premium Starter Kit you will receive a bottle of Christmas Spirit!

  1. My mom has been in the hospital with pneumonia and a friend gave me Raven to diffuse in the hospital room. I truly believe that helped heal her lungs more quickly! I have used peppermint oil in my water to calm diverticulitis attacks and prevent having to do a round of antibiotics. My brother teased me about my snake oils but now he uses peppermint daily!

  2. I love Young Living oils. I got the Premium Kit about a year ago. I love the pain away. I use the Ningxia everyday. I love e erything they offer.

    Its cold here in Idaho too!

    I’d love to come to your conference. It sounds wonderful!

    Have a blessed Saturday.

  3. I’m pretty limited in what oils I use or have. But Lavendar, Lemon and Peppermint each night for my oldest has really helped her allergies! Her diffuser broke last year and the week she was without it we could tell a big difference. Young Living replaced it for free – no hassles – since it was within a year of purchase.

  4. I have had a history of bronchitis & pneumonia for years. I started with young living oils 1 1/2 year ago & have not had an infection since. I use RC during peak allergy season & thieves regularly in diffusers. I use Peppermint on sides of my neck EVERY night. Just recorded several & purchased the Christmas gift pak that includes Lavender, Thieves, & Peppermint. Great package. My daughter loves the Thieves detergent.

  5. I will pray for a retreat and the logistics to work out! That would be SO.MUCH.FUN! I would love to bring my 2 sisters with me and have a “girls” weekend!
    Hope it happens!

  6. Cyndi, loved meeting you (and your lovely husband) and seeing your precious heart for Jesus. Please make the conference happen! If it does, we are there!

  7. I would LOVE to go to your retreat. Can’t wait to hear more about it. I love Thieves and Stress Away. My daughter uses them too. She stole my diffuser so I should probably order another. LOL! Also, lavender is the BEST for kitchen burns. I keep one by the stove at all times. 🙂

  8. Fairly new to YL essential oils but Tranquility has definitely improved my sleep quality! Also Love diffusing cedar wood! Christmas Spirit awesome also!

  9. FYI: Essential oils metabolize quickly and are able to reach every cell in our body in about 20 minutes. Apply the oils where it makes sense to you, and most importantly, make it a habit each day!

  10. I would LOVE to attend your retreat Cyndi!! I use Peppermint in my water at least once a day, the digest when I remember and lemon.

  11. Hello Cyndi
    I was wondering, if I order the starter kit in Young Living, does that mean I have to be a “distributor”? I just don’t have the desire or the time to become one, I just would like to use the oils. I have been a fan of Thieves oil for years, just wondering if I have to sign up to become a distributor or if I can just order the starter kit. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your emails, can’t wait to read each day! You are truly blessed and a beautiful woman, inside and out. Have a blessed Saturday!

  12. Sending positive thoughts your way that the women’s retreat will all work out— what an amazing opportunity that would be!

  13. Cyndi, I am very interested in the Premium Starter kit but I do not have a tax ID number and I am not comfortable putting my SS# out there. Is there any other way I can get enrolled?

    Wendy 🙂

    1. Have you tried Amazon? If I am not allowed to post this sorry, but I live in Alaska and many things can’t be shipped to me so I always check Amazon…they ship to Alaska.

      1. I have purchased Young Living essential oil on Amazon and ran into the problem of counterfeit products – do NOT do it. The package arrived with no instructions or receipt and the label was not Young Living label. Yes, it says Young Living but it is not their label. Beware!

  14. I’m sending prayers for the retreat to come together next year. I follow all three of you gals’ blogs. Wouldn’t it be nice to see y’all face to face!!

  15. Thanks for your info on the oils. They really do make a difference! Have you visited Dr. Edie Wadsworths’ blog The Oily Sisterhood? She was a family physician and left her practice to homeschool her daughters and later became involved with essential oils and is now an ambassador for them for Young living Oils. She is such a dedicated Christian woman and always imparts such wisdom Thank you for all your inspiration!!! Have a blessed Sunday!!!.

  16. I love essential oils and herbal supplements! I have been diffusing Thieves oil almost everyday this week and today I used it in the water that goes in my mop to mop my kitchen floors. I absolutely LOVE the smell of Thieves. I also ordered Christmas Spirit for the first time and just got it today. I haven’t tried it yet. But I would recommend Young Living essential oils to everyone!!

  17. I wondered what location you would use for a retreat? I hope I don’t live too far away to come. I would love it! Your sister wrote about starting a healthier journey. I too am in that process. An idea for the retreat might be to highlight some success stories. You seem to have such a grip on this I would love if you shared any helps or encouragement on your blog. I think I would like to join your facebook mentioned earlier if possible. From one pastor’s wife to another, have a blessed day of worship.

  18. Hi Cyndi! I also drink 1oz. of Ningxia Red everyday and I’m in love with Peace and Calming,
    this bottle is worth every dime and Purification is a must!!
    Have a great week coming up and God Bless
