Oils of the Month – September 2015 Rewards
Because I ordered Lavender, Lemon, a few Thieves, Tea Tree, and RC this month…I received a Tangerine, Aroma Life, and additional Lemon essential oil for FREE! Not to mention that I gained product credit on everything I purchased that I can use towards MORE FREE items. This is Young Living’s Essential Rewards program.
I place an order each month. Sometimes it is to replenish oils I am running low on, sometimes I want to try something new. Sometimes it is for a gift for someone, or maybe we are stocking up on supplements that we love and would need to buy somewhere anyway.
Essential Rewards (ER) gives me “points” back on every dollar I order. I’ve been ordering for over a year now so I collect 20% of each order in points, which I can accumulate and redeem on products whenever I want to. If I have 100 ER points, I basically have $100 just sitting in my account waiting for me to apply in my cart of whatever I want to
buy collect for free. These points add up fast, especially if you find yourself ordering frequently like I do.
Besides earning ER points towards buying oils, this program also means you get reduced shipping, priority when stock runs low, and access to exclusive promotions every single month. Like this one below in September, which is why I received Tangerine, Aroma Life, and Lemon for free. I love being rewarded as a customer! Essential Rewards can be cancelled at any time, and we can skip one month per year if we need to.
Check out the September essential oils I received:
This blend combines the harmonizing effects of Cypress, Helichrysum, Marjoram, Ylang Ylang, and sesame oil into a powerful and uplifting aroma. It is best applied over your heart energy – front and/or back. Pulsing with life, this vibrant blend energizes your life force and supports the wellness of the circulatory, lymphatic, and cardiovascular systems.
Perfect to diffuse aromatically for a relaxing environment, and so comforting when applied topically to the neck and chest! This nurturing blend of oils contains Peppermint, Spearmint, Ginger, Cardamom, and Fennel. It includes the naturally occurring constituents menthol, l-carvone, zingiberene, linalool, and ocimene (I did NOT make those up and encourage you to research them further on sources like PubMed). I love this clean and calm aroma and know you will, too!
Clary sage essential oil contains natural phytoestrogens. It has a mellow, warm, herbal scent that is uplifting and relaxing, making it a perfect choice for supporting a normal, healthy attitude during PMS. It is also supportive for menopausal women.
Ahh, lavender is the “swiss army knife” of essential oils. Super versatile, super soothing. This oil can be used aromatically or topically. When diffused, Lavender adds a clean, fresh scent to any room and is a relaxing addition to baths and body care products. It complements some of my favorite shampoos and lotions very nicely; adding a drop or two to my mascara bottles is my favorite. It is no wonder that this popular oil is a key ingredient in other essential oil blends, including: StressAway, RutaVaLa, Tranquil, Forgiveness, and Harmony. Unwind with calming, comforting Lavender!
Lemon essential oil contains the naturally-occuring limonene (more homework for you to Google; and also use your reference guide to learn all about uses for Lemon). This aroma is powerfully concentrated…did you know it takes 75 lemons to make a 15ml bottle of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil? What a bright, flavorful addition to a glass of water, marinades, dressings, desserts, and tons more. Distinguished as a dietary supplement, Lemon’s fresh citrus flavor and aroma allows you creativity! I buy this one a lot since it is the perfect ingredient in many of my homemade cleaners. Check out other ways to use Lemon essential oil here.
Another citrus oil with similar properties and uses as Lemon is Tangerine. Delicious addition to food and water because of it’s bright, sweet flavor. It also includes limonene which supports a healthy lifestyle regimen. This well-loved oil is used in my home in many ways, including my cleaning recipes as well. Tangerine is an important ingredient that is found in other Young Living products, like: Citrus Fresh, Joy, Inner Child, Ningxia Red, Slique Essence, and Super C. Who doesn’t love the smell of citrus?!
This fresh, crisp aroma can be applied topically to help maintain healthy-looking hair and scalp, reduce the appearance of blemishes, and on feet and toenails as needed. I rub a drop on my face each morning and also make my homemade Lemon/Tea Tree dishwasher tabs with it. The naturally occurring constituents you’ll want to research to learn how else Tea Tree can support wellness? Try terpinene-4-ol, gamma terpinene, and alpha-terpinene.
This powerful blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils may help support healthy immune function and contribute to overall wellness when taken as a dietary supplement. The Eucalyptus Radiata oil may help maintain a healthy respiratory system when taken. This blend delivers the naturally-derived constituents limonene, eugenol, and eucalyptol (seriously, empower yourself and research those!). Add a drop of Thieves to a cup of warm water as part of a wellness regimen…As you can see, I like to stock up on it in August or September!
RC (I ordered it this month but it’s not pictured here, oops!)
Rub RC on your feet or chest before exercise to uplift and inspire. Massage 3 drops on feet before bedtime (or diffuse while sleeping) when you need some comfort. This blend is a unique combination of Cypress, Spruce, and THREE kinds of Eucalyptus (E. globulus, E. radiata, and E. citriodora)…so you can probably imagine smelling it just from reading those words! Think ‘Respiratory’ and ‘Comfort’…and look up these naturally-occurring compounds it contains: limonene (starting to recognize this one now?), linalol acetate, linalol, camphene, and eucalyptol.
Always follow essential oil safety guidelines, common sense, and your gut! You can order Lavender, Lemon, Thieves, and RC all as part of the premium starter kit, then if you add on an Essential Rewards as well…you’ll qualify for this September promotions as well. Imagine receiving over a dozen oils, a diffuser, and so much more this month…there’s still time until the last day of the month! And then I will share October’s freebie promotions with you in my next post.
Young Living rewards customers/users in so many ways which is why I can’t help but share them with others.
