Starting something new is so much fun! There's so much to learn and before you know it ... it's overwhelming and often expensive.
So, you're interested in trying out some Young Living Essential Oils so let's see if I can make it easier for you .
First, learn about yourself. Do you want to avoid medication and try to relieve simple maladies with something pure and natural? Yeah, me, too.
Second, does it bother you to use harsh chemicals for your laundry, general cleaning, and other household uses? Yeah, me, too.
And, lastly, do you want to jump right in or take it slowly?
I'll start with the last one first. You can jump right in and spend about $160 for a kit which contains many of the oils you may want plus a diffuser (which you will love to use!). You'll need to think about which oils may help you and keep your eye on what you're spending ... I'll be happy to help you along without any pressure to buy. I want you to enjoy the experience as I did. I started slowly and will readily admit I wish I had just gotten the kit as those are my goto oils. But, $160 is an investment and if you're not ready, that is just fine.
There are many oils used for health reasons and due to guidelines I can't promise anything, but I shared some graphics below to help you out.
So far as cleaning, I can say Thieves cleaner and some DIY cleaners have had a major effect on the health of our household and our pets.
Again, I have shared some graphics below that may help you make a decision about where to start.
15 drops each lime and tea tree Young Living essential oils
Put all ingredients into a quart Mason jar; shake gently and pour into a glass spray bottle. I write the recipe on a label and put it on the quart jar for easy access when my spray bottle is running low.
General Cleaner I used this for my kitchen countertops, woodwork, and general light cleaning. In a glass 6 - 8 ounce spray bottle add:
1 teaspoon natural dish soap
5 drops each: lemon, peppermint, and 2 drops lavender
Fill with water, shake gently
I used these particular oils because of southern Alabama allergies. I also diffuse a lesser amount of oils (2/2/1) in my diffuser when allergy season hits.
