If you want to officially welcome Christmas into your life - then you MUST HAVE these Young Living Essential oils!!! How do I love them? Let me count the ways....

It seems like oils are all the rage right now. Like fur vests and high waisted denim - everybody is doing it. I hopped on the bandwagon myself 2 years ago and after dappling here and there with the basics - I have recently become a full blown addict. It started out so simply with a lone bottle of lavender...and now my medicine cabinet basically looks like an episode of doomsday preppers. The problem with these little bottles of heaven is that once you try them out and see how amazingly they work... you sort of get addicted to trying out more and more!

You can use essential oils in almost every facet of your life. Add lemon, ginger, or orange oil to your drinks. Repel insects and soothe bites with Purification blend. Drift off to sleep with Lavender or Peace and Calming. Keep your immune system strong with Thieves. The list goes on and on and on. I clean with them. I add them to my shampoo, cosmetics, and smoothies! It is also a little known fact that using essential oils does not mean you have to now homeschool your kids and only eat eggs that you harvest from your very own organic chicken coop. No no. I have 3 kids under 6 and the last thing I need is bird feces tracked through my house, or a near death experience with an eye-pecking beast. Don't think you have to subscribe to the completely granola way of living in order to use Essential oils!!! 

It's overwhelming when you first start learning about the therapeutic properties of all the different oils and blends out there. Where do you even begin?? If you're like me, you want a friend you know and trust who is able to walk you through it! So today I have 3 options for you, and I hope this makes your Essential oils journey a little easier for you!

1. Enter to win this giveaway, and hopefully walk away with 3 delicious oils to try out. Nutmeg, Orange, and Cinnamon bark. Here is a brief description of the therapeutic uses of each of these oils:

Nutmeg: commonly used to help with digestive disorders, supports the nervous and endocrine system to combat fatigue & exhaustion. Smells dang good and is delicious in hot chocolate!

Orange: Powerful antioxidant, used often in beauty products. Smells amazing and brings about happiness and peace of mind! I love a drop or two in my smoothies and pretty much add it to my diffuser every time I turn it on!

Cinnamon bark: "is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic. You can also use it to enhance your cooking, or dilute and massage into chakras to create a soothing, relaxing sensation." Pulled directly from the Young Living website. Sidenote: I had no idea where my chakras are. And Im a nurse, so yeah. Go here to discover what that even means. ( Its a fancy foreign word for energy points. )

2. If you LOVE oils (or even think you might someday love oils...), and you want to try them out, but are scared of commitments (Im right there with ya ), then please by all means shoot me an email at christycrandall@gmail.com and I will extend my wholesale discount of 24% off to you. That's it! No obligation, no strings, nothing but a discount. The only very slightly bothersome part of this is that I place the order for you and it ships to me, and then I will ship it to you. Its painless, really. So if you've been wanting to try ANYTHING from Young Living take me up on the discount and it's yours! I'm a huge fan of "try before you buy". So if you want to try a few oils and see how you like them - this is the way to go. 

3. And the final option is to sign up for a Young Living Membership. I would highly recommend this option if you are looking at buying more than one or two oils. In fact, the way you sign up for the membership is to purchase a starter kit. Here is the kit I purchased 2 months ago when I started out, but there are kits available for as little as $75 that come with oil and a diffuser! (see the kits in the link above)

Premium Starter Kit with Bamboo Diffuser  ($160)

Kit includes: Everyday Oils™ collection, the all-new Aroma Diffuser, Welcome to Young Living booklet, Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide, Member Resource Guide, S.E.E.D. Sharing for Success booklet, Citrus Fresh 5-ml, AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment, two sample sachets each of: Lavender, Peppermint, Peace & Calming®, Lemon, and Thieves®, two NingXia Red® 2-oz. samples, Business cards sample pack, Member Agreement, Product Guide


When you sign up for a wholesale membership it works just like buying a costco card. It lets you into the store, with an automatic 24% off savings on your purchases. Here is the kicker - to keep your membership active you only have to buy $50 worth of oils a YEAR. You dont even have to pay to renew your membership! You don't have to sell anything. I repeat: You don't have to sell anything!!!! Hence the reason I signed up. When you spend a certain amount in a single transaction you earn free oils! This month I got a free bottle of Ginger - which I can't wait for! Once you have a wholesale membership you can then enroll in Essential Rewards (completely optional) which is a FREE auto-renewal program that ships items to you monthly. You earn points back on what you spend, that can then be used dollar for dollar for more free oils!

Ok phew. That was a ton of information. If any of you would like to now more, feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me through email. I am by no means an expert - just an obsessed oil user with a wholesale membership :) Use me to your advantage! I am here to help you!
