Lets talk essential oils.
I wanted to create this post because this is something I would have loved to read before using essential oils.
From someone who is frugal in basically all things in my life, and can not even hardly spend money on myself, I know cost is one of the first things people think about with essential oils. Yes, they are an investment, but there are essential oils that you will actually want to use that wont break the bank. Especially, if you are wanting to try some but don't want to commit to a premium starter kit just yet.
First things first, the prices i'm sharing are wholesale pricing. Meaning, these are the prices that members of YL receive when they purchase oils. However, a lot of these oils retail price are below $13 as well. If you are not a member but want wholesale prices, find a member local to you (pick me friends! 😉), they can add the oils you want to try to their essential rewards monthly order and viola! You've got oils at the best price and don't have to worry about becoming a member.
So lets get right into this.
It's always a good idea to talk with your doctor before using any essential oils to see they are safe to be combined with anything you may already to be taking. Each EO is linked to pages with more information about that oil. Here is also the essential oil safety guide with some important usage FAQS.
The white labeled bottle AKA the Vitality Line is so you can clearly see what oils are safe for internal use. They each have supplement fact labels as well for FDA regulation for consuming.
Personally, I do use my vitality line essential oils aromatically, and topically as well.
Citrus oils are some of my absolute favorite ones to use! So many many properties for supporting a happy life. I use them most often in diffusing & roller blends. I know you'll love them too!
citrus oils are photosensitive. Avoiding direct sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying product is recommended.
Orange (Citrus sinensis) Vitality™ has a clean, refreshing scent and flavor and contains the naturally occurring constituent limonene. Young Living uses it in many products, such as NingXia Red®. Use in your morning wake up smoothie, or use on chicken for dinner, it the perfect orange. Its aroma is fresh and uplifting, perfect for a needed pick me up.
Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) Vitality™ is known for its invigorating citrus scent and delicious, tart taste. Grapefruit Vitality essential oil can also support weight-management programs when taken internally and paired with a healthy diet and exercise.** Another good use is you can also boost your DIY lip & body scrubs.
Lemon oil is another amazing fresh scent essential oil. A drop in your water to boost your morning energy. Combine with baking soda for a yummy smelling carpet/rug refresher.
A versatile earthier scented oil can be used for gut wellness, and support. Lemongrass Vitality™ essential oil is a powerful ingredient in the DiGize™ essential oil blend.
