Running on Empty: How to Restock your Premium Starter Kit


So you got yourself a kit. You love it. You use it. You are out of Lemon. Or Lavender. Or Peppermint. What should you do??

The first time this happened to me, I bought myself a whole new starter kit. Yep. That was NOT smart. But I loved them all – how on earth could I choose??  I came across a graphic after my second starter kit that showed me just how to OPTIMIZE my oil purchases so that I could restock my kit AND earn points back!! Enter Essential Rewards.

I know, I’ve talked E.R. before. And you know that it’s a great loyalty program where you get points back and also get freebies during promotions. If you don’t know that click here for that blog post.

So with all of that, I’ve created a little Infographic that you can use, share, whatever helps to make it an easy process for you!! Also, these are just my ideas, so if you don’t like it – don’t use it! 🙂

So what you need to do first is log in to your Virtual Office. On the left hand side, there is a link to “Essential Rewards”. Click on that and choose a date of delivery. This will stay the same every month unless you change the date. You will get an email a day or two before your order is scheduled to go through to remind you to check on that order. I think this is so awesome!! It really helps me when I realize that I have to add/take away things before my order processes.

If it’s your first 3 months on ER, you will earn 10% back on your entire Essential Reward order. Months 4-24 earn 20% back and 25+ earn 25% back!! On top of that, you will earn loyalty oils at 3, 6, 9, 12 months. AND on top of THAT you will earn monthly promos usually for 100 and 190 PV. Don’t quote me on that 😉

It just makes sense!! Don’t you agree??

Back to School: 5 Oils You Need To Get Ready For The School Year

My other job is in a school. I am not only a Young Living Distributer and blogger, I am also a school-based Speech/Language Pathologist. This is my 14th year starting school as an SLP and every fall I get really excited to start fresh another year!!  This year I have some changes in the way I’ve been providing service, so I know there is going to be a learning curve. I also work in a primary school building – Preschool through 2nd grade. You know what that means – GERMS!!! So without further ado, I am going to give you my TOP 5 BACK TO SCHOOL OILS!!!

#1: Thieves

This is a “duh” to me. Thieves smells like fall and gets me in the mood for the fall time – add a little orange, and it smells like Heaven!!  Thieves is also a great immune-booster that you all need in your homes. We are going from our outside, summer lives to joining 600 other people in one building. You NEED TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM!!!

-Diffuse Thieves when your kids are doing homework. It smells great and helps their little immune systems out!

-Add to a carrier oil in a roller bottle and keep out for the kiddos. My boys roll it on their spines when brushing their teeth in the morning. You can put it on their feet as well, but we usually forget until after socks are on.

-Add a drop of Thieves Vitality to your coffee or tea in the morning. It makes it taste similar to chai tea – yum!!! Plus it’s an extra immune boost!!

-Make a spray bottle with some water and Thieves to spray on doorknobs, light switches, and in the air! It’s not going to hurt anything, right?


#2: Orange

Orange is GREAT for a little boost in the morning! It’s also so good added to many, many oils. I love it with Peppermint, Joy, Thieves, and more! Orange can be used for SO many things; it can help support your nervous system, give you a little energetic boost, and is also a great immune booster.

-Diffuse Orange and Thieves together to boost that immunity!!

– Add Orange to any of the Emotional Oil blends to “tone down” the flowery smell

– Add Orange Vitality to your water in the morning for a great boost

– Orange and Peppermint together are GREAT for aiding digestion (and the Orange again tones down the Peppermint)


#3: Peppermint

Peppermint is seriously my “go-to” oil for most things. I LOVE the smell. When I diffuse this with Lavender and Lemon, it provides the seasonal support I need when it changes over to fall. Peppermint is great for muscle support, lung support, digestive support, and support for your central nervous system. This oil encourages me to take deep breaths which is something we definitely ALL need to improve!

-Rub Peppermint on your muscles if you feel tension – I always have tension in my neck and forehead – Pepp is my jam!

-Rub Peppermint on your tummy if you ate too much or have a nervous tummy about starting school – this is a big one for my kiddos! They get nervous and a little teeny bit of Peppermint goes a long way! START WITH ADDING A CARRIER OIL!!

-Peppermint Vitality can be added to water to support digestion and give your water a little zing!

-Peppermint Vitality can be used to freshen your breath if you’re brave enough!! It’s strong!! I put a drop in my palm and touch my tongue to it. That’s all I can handle!!

-Peppermint goes over my lungs at night to support my respiratory system. Like I said, it encourages me to take DEEP BREATHS!


#4: Lavender

Lavender oil is like the “swiss army knife” of oils. It’s supportive for so many body systems including skin and is a very calming oil. When we have to get into the bedtime routine of the year I get a little push back! Also, my kids are worriers and they love to worry when they should be sleeping. Lavender oil is a very safe-for-children oil that I apply to their neck, back, feet, wrists and wherever else they let me to help them calm down for bedtime. I love adding this to a nightly bath to aid relaxation.

#5: Thieves Household Cleaner

Okay. So it’s not really a straight up oil, but this is something I CANNOT start the school year without! The cleaner comes in a concentrated formula, so you need to dilute it with water and add it to a spray bottle. I have a bottle of this cleaner on each floor of my home and I keep one at school also. It is a WONDERFUL plant-based cleaner that is safe for children and smells like cookies! I use this cleaner on ALL surfaces of my home – bathrooms, kitchens, glass, carpet, hardwood floors, and my classroom desks and tables. There are recipes online in which people add this cleaner to their laundry detergent to boost it, add it to soap for handsoap, and more! It’s an extremely versatile cleaner. Check out this video from YouTube showing how clean it really is!!


You guys!! How could I almost forget this one?!?! I use Stress Away every. single. day. I rub it on my wrists as perfume, spray it all over myself like a body spray and I keep this one in my purse to sniff throughout the day. This is a blend of lovely oils such as Lime, Copaiba, and Vanilla. It smells soooo good, and really does what it says on the bottle! It is my every day oil.


So that’s it! My Back-To-School Essentials list. I really could go on and on with vitamins and Ningxia Red and Emotional Oils but I had to stop somewhere!  What oils do you LOVE for back to school??

Refresh, Recharge, and Recommit: What do you do with these oils??

Are you new to Young Living??

Each month the company comes out with GREAT Promotions to help support you and your healthy lifestyle!! This month is NO EXCEPTION!!

In order to get the most out of this deal, you need to order a certain amount of product. For example, when you place an order of 100 PV (100 points – pretty comparable to dollars in most cases), you earn a 5 ml. bottle of Spearmint Vitality IF you order using Essential Rewards.

I’m going to start there – Essential Rewards – what is that?

Essential Rewards Program

Young Living has created this AWESOME rewards program where you not only can earn free products RIGHT NOW with THIS E.R. ORDER, but you ALSO EARN CREDITS/POINTS/DOLLARS BACK to spend on a later Quick order.  This is how I have earned SO. MANY. FREE. THINGS.  It’s like a “try it before you buy it” type of deal because you are getting products for your points, essentially for FREE!!

So what else about E.R.? 

Here’s a little graphic about what you earn back in rewards. For the first 3 months, you will earn 10% back on each purchase. You get 20% for the next 20 months, and once you are in the program for 25 months, you get 25% back on all purchases!! Add that to the already fantastic deal of 24% off when you get a WHOLESALE account over just buying retail, and you are getting a 50% discount (24% now, 25% later basically). WOWZA!!

Even more info for you if I’m not making sense!

So it’s a win-win situation folks!! Go to YOUR VIRTUAL OFFICE and click on the menu on the left on ESSENTIAL REWARDS to get signed up and start earning points back TODAY!!

Back to our previously scheduled program – AUGUST PROMOS!!

Spearmint Vitality Oil

If you recall, vitality is our FDA labeled oils that are consumable. You can ingest these vitality oils along with diffusing them or applying them topically.

Spearmint oil can be blended with Peppermint Vitality for digestive system support. Take it in a veggie capsule, drop it onto your hand and rub it directly over your stomach. Add a drop to water or tea to support digestion and improve the taste of your beverage.

Spearmint is also great in the diffuser and helps give that ZING! of energy when inhaled! I love it mixed with Lemongrass or another fruity citrus-type of oil.


You can earn this lovely oil with an order of 190 PV AND being an ESSENTIAL REWARDS member. This was a freebie for me in the past and quite honestly I would never have tried it, but it is yummy!!  It has a menthol-type smell, but it’s much milder than the typical menthol smell. I use this one before yoga or meditation. It helps kind of encourage me to take really deep breaths. It’s great in the diffuser and you can apply it topically to help with immune boosting or skin support!


This is another oil you get at 190 PV – so add that up! If you are on ER and spend 190 PV, you get THREE FREE OILS right there! Plus, if you’ve come this far, you get at least 19 points back (dollars$$$$$) to spend later!

Wintergreen is refreshing – you’ve probably smelled this before. However, do not ingest this oil – it actually has a child safety cap on top because it is so super strong! This is a great addition to V6 oil or lotion to rub on sore, tired muscles. It also smells like Christmastime to me! I love that!!

Aroma Siez

We’re at the next level!! 250PV and you earn $118 in FREE OILS PLUS you’ll have 25 points to spend later!

Aroma Siez contains Basil, Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint, and Cypress. This is another oil that would be great for any muscle relief and smells AWESOME in the diffuser!  Also, when I look at the list of oils and know what Peppermint and Lavender do for me (seasonal support!!)  I would bet that this is a good one to diffuse when the seasons start to change. Add a little Lemon and you have yourself a lovely home scent without toxic candles!!


We’ve reached the top. Spend 300PV, get all of these (if you’re on ER) and get over 30 points to spend later!! That’s laundry detergent for this month PLUS $185 free oils!!

This oils is an emotional oil blend. It has flowery parts such as Geranium, plus the grounding, earthy scent of Frankincense, and some fruity Orange and Grapefruit! It is supposed to boost feelings of self worth and self acceptance. And don’t we all need a little of that these days?!

On top of all that, you get an adorable 3 oil Bamboo Block holder (see picture at the top of the post).


Whew! That was a lot of information!  That’s what I’m here for!! I really love learning about what all of these oils can do for me, and really want to help you learn what they can do for you as well!!


So! Do you have any questions?? Let me know in the comments or contact forms! I’m happy to try to answer any and all questions!
