Unpacking my October Essential Rewards Order


I took full advantage of our 3 inches of snow this afternoon for this photo-shoot! There is nothing more magical than the first snowfall that sticks to the ground and the trees! Like a perfect winter wonderland! 🙂 It means Christmas is almost here and with Essential Rewards, it feels like it’s Christmas EVERY month! That’s how I feel when I get to unpack my essential rewards order EVERY SINGLE MONTH! Psssst….if you would like more info on Essential Rewards, go here.

What I ordered & Why

NingXia Red – I take 1oz every morning and if I’m dragging, 1oz in the afternoon! 🙂 It’s a power house! When we were moving from our 3b 2b home in Kansas by ourselves, every time we would start to slow down we would call a NingXia break, take 2oz and be right back at it. It’s like taking a string of Christmas lights, fixing the ones that won’t light and being a complete string again! Boom, boom, boom! 🙂 It’s a whole-body boost!
NingXia Red® is a powerful antioxidant drink that contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree—a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. Its health benefits include support from head to toe, via a whole body nutrient infusion. NingXia Wolfberries have been cherished for centuries for its health, energy, and longevity benefits. Whole Ningxia wolfberries and other nutrient-dense fruit juices make NingXia Red the perfect choice for optimizing wellness and stepping up to a whole new level of health.

Thieves Hard Lozenges – For occasional throat discomfort! 🙂 These are amazing!

Thieves® Hard Lozenges will refresh your mouth and breath and provide soothing relief for your throat. Lightly sweetened with the low-glycemic sugar maltitol, these lozenges deliver the power of Thieves®, the university-tested essential oil blend, along with the flavor of natural peppermint and lemon essential oil.

Nutmeg – The only reason I ordered this, really, if I’m being completely honest, is because I wanted to make all of these Fall-themed things! 🙂 It would be fabulous in cooking though as well! 🙂





DIY Pumpkin Spice Scented Sugar Scrub
• 1 3/4 cups brown sugar
• 1/4 cup white sugar
• 1 drop Cinnamon essential oil
• 1 drop Clove essential oil
• 1 drop Ginger essential oil
• 1 drop Nutmeg essential oil
• 1/4 cup almond or jojoba oil
• 1 Tbsp. honey

Combine sugars in a mixing bowl. Mix oils and honey together in a separate container. Combine liquid mixture with sugars in mixing bowl and stir until it reaches desired texture, adding more oil or sugar if necessary. Transfer to mason jar or other container and enjoy!

Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) has a sweet, warm, spicy scent similar to the spice commonly used in cooking. Comforting and soothing, nutmeg helps boost energy. It also supports nervous and endocrine systems and prostaglandin balance.*

Thieves Mouthwash – I don’t really think this one needs explanation! 😉 I do have to mention that I rejoice in the fact that there are alternatives to nearly EVERY toxic thing we could have in our homes and it mostly can be replaced with safe, powerful & non-toxic products from Young Living! It really doesn’t get any better! 🙂

Thieves® Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash contains a special formulation of essential oils that provides incredibly fresh breath. The unique liposome technology (using soy-derived lecithin) binds the essential oils to the mucous membrane inside the mouth for longer-lasting effects on teeth and gums.

How to get YL products completely free!

Yes! All of this was really free! One of the many reasons I love Young Living!

Oh Essential Rewards! You’re too sweet! <3

So there is this magical thing called Essential Rewards and if you are as obsessed with healthy & chemical free living, an auto-ship order every month with Young Living only makes sense! I’ll break down the benefits for you!
The first 6 months you earn 10% back on EVERY ER order
6-12 months you earn 15% back on EVERY ER order
Last but most certainly not least, when you are on ER for 12+ months, you earn 20% back on every order!

What’s the catch?

Absolutely no catch! You just order products you need/use every month and before you know it you will be placing your first FREE order! So if you’re like me and you don’t like numbers 😉 that means you earn $20 free dollars every month you purchase 100PV! I’m not joking! That is HUGE and they add up so quickly!
To redeem, you log into your beautiful new virtual office, choose nearly any product you want and choose your ER points to pay! I mean, who doesn’t love free?!? I would be buying these products regardless of points, but this is just the cherry on top of the great big generous sundae I call Young Living! 🙂

August Essential Rewards Order



If you’ve never heard about Essential Rewards (ER for short 😉 ), it’s a monthly auto-ship order that comes with many perks like reduced shipping & free product, but is also COMPLETELY OPTIONAL! 🙂 Breathe easy, you do NOT have to be an essential rewards member when you join YL as a wholesale member but it’s a great option for those that want to order every month regardless!

This is my order from last month (my ER date is the 25th, so I get my order around the 1st).

What I ordered & what I use it for:


Melaleuca alternifolia

I use it in my homemade deodorant, or if I’m out of that, I just mix it with purification and apply neat to my armpits! 😉


I haven’t tried this yet but I learned all about this brand new oil blend at Convention and it’s apparently “Di-Gize on steriods”! I am so excited! It may be great to aid normal digestion!

Check out this AMAZING study by the University of North Carolina and using this blend to combat nausea, specifically after surgery.

To be honest, the fall season is around the bend and I just wanted this oil + my cinnamon bark oil to make the house smell like fall and all it’s goodness!
