We are really excited to be bringing things that we use everyday to you on Your Modern Family.  One of those things is an array of essential oils.

I know.  I know.

I was once a skeptic too.

In fact, I thought the whole thing was a little crazy.

And then a friend of mine introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils.  I was afraid because I have always been sensitive to perfume and the smells in products like candles and washing detergent.  What I found was not only did the natural essential oils not bother me, but they changed my family’s life for the better.

We use them regularly in many ways, but here are a few:

  • I sleep better when we diffuse lavender by our bed.  The funny thing is that if I forget to set it up, my {even more skeptical} husband will remind me because he has noticed the same thing!
  • Everyone loves the combination of lemon, lavender & peppermint.  It is like a breath of fresh air helping the entire family survive allergy and cold season.
  • Thieves.  Thieves!  It is a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils.  Legend has it that it got its name from a group of 15th-century thieves who rubbed essential oils on themselves to avoid contracting the plague.  Thankfully my family aren’t 15th-century grave-robbers, but it is incredible for diffusing (makes the house smell amazing) or as a supplement.  I also use ALL the Thieves cleaning products:  hand soap, body soap, all-purpose cleaner and laundry detergent.  They are incredible!
  • Panaway helped me get more comfortable when I had a frozen shoulder.  It was really the only thing that seemed to allow me to get comfortable in bed at night to sleep.
  • Peace & Calming.  The name says it all. <–even for our dog!

Essential oils aren’t some magical mystery or some fad.  I have been using them for 3 years now.  They simply make life healthier, easier and smell better.

Young Living Essential Oils Starter Kit

There are lots of places you can buy essential oils, but what you need to be aware that they are not all the same.  I love how Young Living is a trusted source.  All essential oils are not created equally.  Young Living produces incredibly high quality, natural essential oils through their Seed-to-Seal program.

Oh, and did I mention we have a special deal just for Kids Activities Blog readers?


Your essential oil starter kit includes:

  • 11 Incredible essential oils are included (5 ml each):  Lavender, Copaiba, Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, Thieves, Purification, RC, DiGize, PanAway, and Stress Away.
  • Roller fitment
  • 10 sample packets
  • 10 Love it? Share it! cards
  • 10 Love it? Share it! bottles
  • 2 NingXia Red samples
  • Product guide
  • Essential Oil Magazine
  • Essential Edge
  • Member resources

essential oil diffuser choices

You can choose your own essential oil diffuser:

The premium starter kit includes a Dewdrop Diffuser (my favorite), but if you would like to switch that out for a Home Diffuser, you can do that at no additional cost.  You also have the choice to upgrade to a Rainstone Diffuser for an additional $45 or an Aria Ultrasonic Diffuser for an additional $100.


If you were to buy these things separately, they would cost more than $300, but…

…the Young Living Premium Starter Kit is only $160!

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.


There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order. If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards)where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).embrace wellness with YL essential oils


It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it?

I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.

Young Living Seed to Seal

Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant. Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an oil broker to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing. With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several. I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.


One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils! The reference guide that will be sent to you is also a HUGE resource. You can look up almost anything in it and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.


The answer to this one was surprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.


For those who live in Canada, you will be able to choose whether you want the resource book shipped to you or if you would prefer just the $20 Amazon gift card or Paypal credit.

International orders of 100 PV or more will receive a $20 Amazon or Paypal gift card. Many times the only kit that is offered to those that reside outside of the US doesn’t have a PV at all. To receive the gift card, you will need to have a minimum of 100 PV in your final order.


If you are military with an APO/FPO address, you can still receive the same promotion as those in the United States since the address is here in the US.

  1. Thanks for this helpful guide! I’ve been an essential oils skeptic for years, even though my wife uses them daily. I’m starting to come around slowly but surely.

    This past week I’ve had a nagging cold and oils have helped me get good sleep at night. I still don’t understand the ins-and-outs of why they work, but I’m becoming a fan!
