Young Living Diffuser Options

 

  www.Oils1dropatatime.com(3)

With Young Living’s new Premium Starter Kit, you can now choose which diffuser you’d like!  Are you thinking… GREAT! But what is the difference between the diffusers?

The chart above shows you the difference of the diffusers found in the Premium Starter Kit.  It compares looks, area of coverage, how much water it takes, weight, noise level and a few other things.  A great new new feature, which I love  is that all the diffusers found in the PSKI have a timed shut off light, so you can use them in the bedroom at night.

It is worth pointing out that the Home & Aria diffusers recommend using distilled water & the Dewdrop & Bamboo use tap water.

The complete line of Young Living Diffusers Comparison chart can be found here. 

I personally have the Home & Dewdrop Diffuser & use them everyday. Diffusing is on of my favorite uses of my Essential Oils.

Spring Diffuser Blends

spring-rain

Spring Fever!!  I’ve caught it & it’s not just for Baseball!!   Hopefully the weather where you are is screaming “Spring”.  It sure is here & I am soooo ready to say good-bye to winter!  Let me clarify by saying “Spring” here means 60 degrees one day & 30 the next with snow showers.  Did I mention I am ready to say “Bye-Bye” to winter?  The good thing is that I can make it seem (& smell!) like Spring by diffusing some Essential Oils to create a “Spring Day” on those days when it isn’t exactly “Spring” outside.

The great thing about diffusing, is you can mix & match Essential Oils to create a smell that smells good to you.  You just need to adjust the drops until it is “just right”!  These recipes are some that my family, as well as other people enjoy.  Give these Essential Oil Blends a try & see what you think!  Bonus: some of the Essential Oils (Peppermint, Lemon, Lavender, & Joy) found in these recipes are in the Premium Starter Kit .   An added bonus:  A home diffuser is also in the Premium Starter Kit!   A win-win!!

Springtime Seasonal Support Using Essential Oils

Add subtitle text(1)

The temperatures have been steadily rising here in Michigan- 40’s & 50’s with snow melting- Yeah!!   After the cold weather & snow I am sooooo ready for spring with the warmer temperatures, sunshine, & budding trees and flowers. With these welcome changes comes the NOT so welcome changes of Springtime Seasonal discomfort. You know… stuffiness, scratchy throat, itchy ears, &/or “drippy nose”   This year, even though we’ve moved from the East Coast to the Mid West,  I am not worried.  I am using Lemon, Lavender, & Peppermint Essential Oils to help support my Springtime Seasonal Discomfort.  Even more exciting I no longer have any OTC’s in my medicine cabinet for the much-needed springtime seasonal support my family & I need.  Yeah!!  🙂

Lemon, Lavender, & Peppermint

The Essential Oil combination of Lemon, Lavender, & Peppermint works great for us.  I know many people who are successful in combating the seasonal symptoms using Lavender oil alone.  Lavender essential oil is known as an adaptogen which helps the body cope with stress and other imbalances it encounters.  However, I quickly found that we needed,  what I affectionately refer to as- “The Big Gun.”   My “Big Gun” is the combination of Lemon, Peppermint, & Lavender Essential Oils. You can read more about Lemon & Peppermint Oils in a previous post & Lavender by clicking here.  I am stocking up on those 3 oils! Just an FYI:  Lemon, Peppermint, & Lavender are in the Premium Starter Kit!

Seasonal Discomforts

My Essential Oil Use for Springtime

To make the “Big Gun” I put 3 drops each of Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemon Essential Oil in a vegetable capsule and top it off with a carrier oil (I use Young Living’s V6)    We take it orally two times daily. The great thing about Essential Oils is that you can “tweak” them to suit your personal needs. You may only need to use lavender or you may only need it once a day. It is all dependent upon what YOU need.

Helpful Tips for Seasonal Support with Essential Oils

  • Put a drop of each oil in your hand and rub your hands together and inhale. Ahhh!  What an invigorating & great smell!!
  • Put 1 drop of Lavender on your finger and wipe under the nose.
  • Combine 20-30 drops of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oil in a roller bottle. Top off the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil. Apply topically as needed to the back of the neck, bottom of the feet, &/or on the wrists.
  • Diffusing:  Add a few drops of Essential Oil of your choice a diffuser.

Always check your bottle label to make sure that it is recommended as a dietary supplement (a.k.a can be taken internally).  If so, follow the directions on the bottle.

Another suggestion is to check an Essential Oil Reference book for oil usages, however always follow the bottle 1st.  You can click here to find some great Essential Oil Reference Book suggestions. (FYI:  I also give a FREE Essential Oil Reference Book or phone App if you decide to purchase a Premium Starter Kit.)

March is here- Yipee! That means Spring is a few weeks away!! Probably like most of you, I am SOOOOO ready for winter.  I am ready to throw open the windows to get that fresh spring air.

Purification Essential Oil Blend

I walk in from the bus stop & think what is that awful smell!?!   My first reaction … I need to turn on my diffuser & get my Purification Essential Oil going!!   You see, I take my son to the bus stop every morning. Yup- even though he is in 7th grade I still do the morning walk – (or drive if it is too cold.)  It gives me that extra time for some 1:1 time with him, which I know is fleeting. (Having Freshmen in college, I know I need to grab every nano-second with him, as soon he won’t want to be seen with me, much less “talk” to me!!   An added bonus it gets our dog, Molly, out for a walk as well!)   Anyway … today I smell this morning’s breakfast casualty- burnt waffles!!   In the flurry of getting ready this morning, (a late night from baseball practice= sleeping a bit too long) the waffles got a little too done & ended up in the garbage.  Big bummer!  I guess it is time to turn on the diffuser with a few drops of Purification & a few minutes later- voila- burnt waffle smell gone!!  I love the fresh smell of Purification– kind of a lemony-citronella smell.

www.Oils1dropatatime.com

Purification Essential Oil Blend  is actually a blend of Lemongrass, Citronella, Rosemary, Lavender, Myrtle, and Melaleuca essential oils.

How to Use Purification Essential Oil:

Diffuse: Can be used to cleanse and purify the air from environmental impurities including cigarette smoke and other disagreeable odors.

Topical: Can used directly on the skin to cleanse and soothe.

Other uses:

  • Can be added to your washing machine to freshen laundry.  I have to admit, I have forgotten about a load of clothes in the washer & had that AWFUL “musty smell”  A drop or 2 of Purification took care of that smell lickety-split!   (Add to soap dispenser or tub of water.  Don’t place directly on clothes, it can stain them)
  • Drop in stinky shoes to neutralize smells & kill germs
  • Place a few drops on cotton balls & place in car or room vents
  • Apply to skin to cleanse & soothe insect bites
  • Diffuse Purification to eliminate odors after the dog returns from playing outdoors or in the rain.
  • Diffuse to dispel unpleasant odors and clear the air of impurities.
