Young Living Essential Oils

Young Living Essential Oils

Maybe you’ve come to this site after hearing me teach an essential oils class, after visiting my Facebook page Anoint Them with Oil, or just after chatting with me and you want to know more about Young Living Essential Oils.  Well, you've come to the right place!  This page will give you more information about ordering a Premium Starter Kit.  If you'd like to learn more specifics about Young Living and their amazing products, you can visit Young Living's website.  

The best way to get started with Young Living is to order their Premium Starter Kit.  It is, by far, the "best bang for your buck".  When you order this kit, you become a wholesale member of Young Living.  Here are some of the advantages wholesale membership:

  • You get everything at 24% off retail.  As long as you keep your membership, you will always be able to purchase at this wholesale price!
  • You aren’t required to order each month. In fact, you don’t have to ever order anything again.
  •  You aren’t required to enroll others, tell others about your oils, or do anything else.  Again, you don’t have to ever make another purchase (although, the products are so incredible that you’ll probably want to!).

Wholesale membership works a bit like Costco and Sam’s: you’ve got to be a member to get some of the great benefits.  If you've ever been a member of Costco or Sam’s, you know that when you enroll you pay around $55 for the right to be able to make future purchases from those stores. They don’t give you anything when you sign up. They snap your picture, take your money, and… well… you know how it goes.  But after that you can shop there all the time.

However, a Young Living wholesale membership is even better than that. When you enroll as a wholesale member, they actually send you products on Day 1. Yes, you have the “right to shop” in the future, but you’ll spend $150 now and get great products that you can use right away--products worth over twice what you pay! 

Here’s what you get when you become a wholesale member:


1. The Home Diffuser: These things are awesome. You put a few drops in and they change the entire environment of the room.

2. The Everyday Oils Collection: These are the most commonly used oils in the Young Living warehouse. This collection includes ten 5 ml bottles of oils:
  • Frankincense
  • Lavender
  • Lemon
  • PanAway
  • Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree oil)
  • Peppermint
  • Purification
  • Thieves
  • Citrus Fresh
  • Joy
3. Informational Booklets: Welcome to Young Living, Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide, Distributor Resource Guide, and the S.E.E.D. Sharing for Success booklet.  You will also get a Distributor Agreement, Product Guide, and Product Price List.

4. BONUS ITEMS: Two sample packets of NingXia Red, Young Living's amazing juice blend; 5 ml bottle of Stress Away essential oil with Aroma Glide roller fitment; two sample packets to share of each of the following: Lavender, Peppermint, Peace & Calming, Lemon, and Thieves; and lastly, some sample business cards.

Need I say more???
Ready to dive in?  Follow these step-by-step directions:

1. Click here to go to my sign-up page.  It will open in a new window so that you can still refer back to the instructions on this page.  It looks like this:

2.  Make sure that you sign up as a Wholesale Member NOT a Retail Customer. The Wholesale Member gets the discount and the great products. That box should already be selected.

3. Who introduced you to Young Living Essential Oils?  My member number (1737349) is already entered in both boxes since you followed my link.  There is no need to change anything here.  Young Living will notify me when you have signed up.  That way I'll be able to communicate with you about your kit when it arrives if you have any questions! 

4. Enter your personal information*. This works just like any other online purchase you’ve done.

Fill in your name, address, and phone number. A co-applicant and a company name are optional.

*Young Living requires your Social Security number, also.  This is for tax purposes only.  Young Living will never share or use your SSN for anything else.  After sharing with your friends and family about how much you love the oils, they may want to order some, too!  Then they will sign up under you.  You will get a commission check for anyone who signs up under you.  However, you are never required to do any selling of any kind.   

5. Terms and conditions. Click the box to indicate that you are over 18 and that you want to be qualified for wholesale pricing.

6. Confirm your email address. This is important so they can send you a receipt.

7. Create a user name, password, and a PIN. Note: be sure that you write this down because they won’t provide it on your receipt. You’ll need this to log in to Young Living’s website later on if you decide to make future purchases.

8. Pick your starter kit. There are several options available, but the one you want to select is the Premium Starter Kit (first selection at the top left).  It cost $150 and comes with everything mentioned above. This is definitely the way to go so that you get the diffuser and a great select of oils to begin "experimenting" with. 
Note: Be sure that you don’t select an International option (unless you are coming to this site from abroad), because the plugs / power adapter for the kit will be different.  Also be sure not to select a Spanish version or a Military Base version, unless those apply to your situation and needs.


9. Essential Rewards Kit.  This step is completely optional. Young Living has a great program they call Essential Rewards (ER) whereby they give people who buy on a monthly basis an ongoing (additional) 10% off.  They also offer discounted shipping with this program. You can choose the items you want to purchase on ER, or you can purchase one of the packages they have already bundled at a discounted price.  If you want to make one of these purchases now, select a bundle. If not, scroll below those products, and simply mark, “No, thank you.” You can sign up for ER at any time by logging in to Young Living’s website with the user name, password, and PIN that you just created above (and wrote down!).

10. Enter your payment info. You can use a credit or debit card.


11. Confirm and submit your order. During this stage you’ll see my name as your Sponsor / Enroller. Young Living will notify me to reach out to you via email and make sure you get the help you need in navigating through your products.

That's it!  You are now part of a great organization with amazing products that I am sure you are going to love!  And don't feel like, "I've ordered my what?", because I will be here to walk alongside you on this oily journey you've just begun.  There are groups on Facebook that I can add you to, also, where people are very helpful in answering any questions you may have.  Connect with me on my Facebook page at Anoint Them with Oil.  Welcome to our oily family!

Back to School Gifts

I love the excitement of Back to School time.  I love to shop.  I love to make things.  And I love to give gifts.  Roll all of that into one and what do you get?  Back to School gifts for my co-teachers!  I made them a cute pencil cup out of a tin can (from a can green beans, corn, or whatever other veggie you eat for dinner), some hot-glued crayons and ribbon, and a gerber daisy.  Super cheap, super easy, and super cute!  Add a few bright neon pencils tied with a string, plus a cute graphic someone else made, and you've got instant gifts!  So easy!

The graphic says "#2 pencils for a #1 teacher" (in case you can't read it).  I hope my co-teachers like them!

Truffula Trees!

I love all things Dr. Seuss.  I ran across a tutorial on how to make Truffula trees (from The Lorax) sometime last year.  I pinned it but never got around to making one.  I usually don't have the time and/or energy to craft during the school year, so projects get done in the summer.  Well, with less than two weeks left before I go back to school, I decided to give 'em a go.  I love how they turned out!  Ta-da!

They were pretty simple to make, too!  I got the yellow planters at Walmart for $2.97 each.  I added polka dots using acrylic craft paints and a round foam brush. 

The sticks are actually tree limbs from my (neighbor's) yard!  We have pecan trees and are constantly having limbs blown down in storms.  To get them to stay standing up in the planters, first I put a thick layer of dirt from my yard (helps absorb the water from the p of p-->), then I used plaster of paris (found at Lowes for $5.98), mixed according to the directions on the box.  I used 4 cups of plaster for each one.  It said that it needs to set for 24 hours, but it was stable enough for me to start painting them in about 2 hours.  Again, I just used acrylic craft paints and a foam brush.  They needed about 3 coats of each color to be completely covered.

For the top fluffy parts, I used an 8'' Styrofoam ball (ridiculously expensive @ $12.94 a piece!!) and a feather boa ($4.98 each).  I found both at Walmart.  I just started wrapping the boa around the ball and pinning it every so often with straight pins.  I did have to adjust and readjust to get it to cover well.  (Don't try to use hot glue or you will get a gunked up, grody feathered mess). 

Then I just shoved the bottom of the balls down on the top of the tree limb!  Nothing to it!  I added pom poms (also from Wally World: I think they were $3.97 for 100, various sizes) at random places on the sticks just because I felt like it.  Then I got a chevron plastic tablecloth (97 cents from Walmart) to add to the planters to finish them off.  The tablecloth was just chevron on the sides with a white middle, so I just cut it and used one side for each planter.  You could use fabric, rocks, or whatever else you like.

And that's all she wrote!  Super easy and super cute!  I love 'em!  I know my kiddos are gonna get a kick out of them this year!

And almost a year later....I'm still alive

Oh my gosh, y'all, it has been almost exactly a year to the day (5 days short!) since I last blogged!  Wow!  I started my blog in June last year, and posted all of the crafts I was creating for my (then new-to-me) 4th grade classroom.  But once I got done with my crafts, I really didn't know what else to say!  Haha!  And then school started, and you all know what that means!  Total craziness!

I fully intended to post pictures of my classroom after I got it ready last August, but then things got so busy that I never got around to it.  And I fully intended to blog about my first year in 4th grade, but as you can see, that never happened either!  I've looked at my blog a few times over the last year, and I almost even decided to delete it, because I just didn't have the energy to add anything to it.  But then I thought about the pics of things I've made that are on Pinterest, and how they would be deleted if I did that, so I decided not to.  But I still didn't have the energy to do more to it.  So here it has been sitting for nearly a year.'ve ya been? ;)  I guess I may end up just being a "summer blogger". Haha.  Who knows.  Maybe now that I've gotten a year of 4th under my belt, I'll have more time and energy to focus on blogging?  I guess we'll see.

But I'm back today to show you another craft!  (What else?)  Today I made a school supply cake that I saw on Pinterest.  I followed the tutorial at The Butlers blog.  I love how it turned out!  It is so cute!  Seeeeee???
I just love it!  I am going to be making something else fun for my room tomorrow!  Stay tuned!

Update to the "I'm Outta Here" board

If you've read the update to my "I'm Outta Here" board that I made yesterday (you can read the original post and the update added here), you know that I messed up that board with Gorilla Glue.  Here's a sample of the mess:
It was everywhere.  I was so mad.  I let it sit there for several days before I decided to do anything about it, because I knew it would not be an easy fix.  Today, I finally decided to tackle it.  After trying to cut away most of the seeped out glue with scissors and a knife, I was left with chipped paint and remnants of glue.  I didn't know what to do.  I decided to try to make borders around the frames that got messed up with ribbon, but wouldn't work well and would require a lot more gluing.  So I went with duct tape.  I had searched and searched for polka dot duct tape everywhere locally and couldn't find any.  I was frustrated by that because there are some projects I wanted to use it on.  But Saturday I scored at a Walmart about 30 minutes away.  I bought 4 rolls.  Then my husband told me today that he saw some at our local Walmart today. *sigh*  Of course.  It would happen that way.  Anyway....

After a while of dealing with it, this is what I came up with.  I added some polka dots to it, too, because I thought it was just too plain before.  So here's the finished product (minus the arrow to be added once I get it to school) :

So, what do you think of it now?

I just figured out permalinks!

It took a while, and several Google searches, but I finally got a good explanation of how to make permalinks more prominent.  Right now, if you have clicked on one of my current pins from Pinterest, they take you just to my Home page and you have to scroll down to find what you are looking for.  Sorry about that!  (I'm learning as I go!)  BUT, now that I have figured out permalinks, I have tried to make things a bit easier for you.  If you will go to either "Classroom Crafts", "Freebies", or "Tutorials" in my links up at the top, you can find what you are looking for much more easily.  From now on I know how to pin things so that it will take you only to that one post instead of the Home page.  No more scrolling forever!  You're welcome! :)
