Young Living Essential Oils Workshops
There are a variety of topics that you can learn about when reading this post, I wanted to take the time to share about a weekend workshop that I taught with my sister on Saturday. Here's what I'll go over:
Young Living Live Your Passion Rally:
I have some exciting news to share with my followers as we start the New Year! Yesterday morning, I hosted a Live Your Passion Rally at my house. Young Living has LYPR every quarter and leaders are able to host them privately or publicly to provide education and share exciting announcements; plans from the Young Living management team; recognition of accomplishments; education and exciting looks at products; training and business-building tools; and ways to work toward personal growth. Whether you use this post as an idea to create your own essential oil workshop to help friends and family or use this post to learn about the exciting news, I hope you enjoy!
Over the two years, I have found a passion in teaching wellness workshops. The last two LYPR's, I decided to host private workshops in conjunction with the Rally for our team members. It works our perfectly because that in addition to all of the excitement that Young Living provides the hosts, I also am able to specially prepare more fun for my team. The Live Your Passion Rally’s have always turned out to be a fulfilling event to share our love for oils, inspire more people to live a life of wellness, purpose and abundance!
Since our workshop yesterday turned out to be a successful event and Young Living announced an incredible, new and improved starter kit, which I’ll share below, I wanted to provide information for all that were unable to attend or leaders looking for ideas on how to educate their team.
I am so grateful for all the friends and family that were able to come yesterday, we had a lot of fun sharing about our journey, chatting oils, and getting to know each other. I love the community that surrounds this wellness journey, once you buy your essential oils from me or my team, you will see that you are not alone, you will learn how to use essential oils, and have help you along the way!
If you read this, and your excited to host an event or learn in person from me, lets connect! Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the announcements, ordering the new starter kit, or coming to a future event. Be sure to keep reading further on this page because I'm excited to provide information about the 2019 Premium Starter Kit and what’s included. First, I'm going to take you through our event!
Healthy Food and Drink Ideas at a Young Living Event:
Since the rally is a time for celebration, we prepared simple and healthy food and drinks for our attendees, as a way for them to enjoy the workshop and give them an opportunity to try Young Living products.
**Healthy Eating With Young Living Blog Post Coming Soon!
Yesterday, after all of our guest arrived, were settled into the room with snacks and drinks, we began our workshop. First, we listened to the Young Living Rally presentation that was provided by Young Living after registering to be a host of the event. You can read more about the LYPR news now on your dashboard, under Member News after signing in to Young Living Essential Oils.
Product Education and Personal Growth at the Rally and our Wellness Workshop:
The theme and focus of the January LYPR was about bringing in the New Year, with health and wellness. Our workshop yesterday actually gave us an opportunity put time and focus on our SMART Goals, reflect on where we want to take our health and wellness to in the New Year.
Young Living even provided education for attendees to set goals that they will be able to accomplish in the New Year, if set up properly. With our members, we talked about writing SMART GOALS: Goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time line. In addition to putting in hard work and effort, Young Living offers several products that help make working toward wellness a little bit easier.
Young Living products simply make it easier to crush our goals. At the start of January, Young Living announced two sets that would help all members reach their health and wellness goals.
First up, they introduced the Fresh Start Kit which is a well put together supplement set for building a strong foundation for the New Year! Here’s what’s included: MultiGreens, Allerzyme, and Inner Defense.
For me, a new year is a time for reflection and looking into new healthy habits, it's a time for making resolutions, and using this freshness of the year for self improvement.
The second collection that Young Living put together is the ResOILution Set, a collection of essential oil blends to help bring you the most successful year yet!
I have to tell you that they really put together essential oils that will inspire and provide willpower to achieve goals. The ResOilution Kit comes with Envision, Motivation, and Abundance, my three favorite oils that help get me going mentally.
New Year Essential Oil Roller Recipes:
For all friends and family that attended my workshop, we created a New Year roller that can be used to keep our goals in mind through out the day and actually achieve our new year resolutions. With the energy and excitement of a new year, many people have big ideas, goals, and intentions to make changes. Young Living educated members at the Rally and said that only about 8% of people actually achieve their goals! Wow, that is not many people. Young Living members are able to use the essential oils to help achieve goals, because aromas have a strong impact on the mind. The sense of smell has a direct connection to the limbic lobe of the brain, and the limbic system plays a major role in emotion, mood, memory, motivation, and behavior. Knowing this connection, aromas can support us in those areas. Specifically for our goals, essential oils are able to support us throughout the year when the energy of the New Year may be gone, to help you remember why you started, solidify commitment, keep you motivated, and bring back intentions.
Using the new ResOILution set and the Smart Goal education from the Rally as inspiration for our workshop, we decided teach our members how to make rollers that would bring them back to their New Year Goals and intentions.
We set up a roller making station at the workshop, we offered a variety of positive, inspiring, and motivating essential oils such as: the ResOILution set- Abundance, Envision, Motivation; and also essential oils such as Joy, Gathering, Hope, Believe, Valor, White Angelica, Inner Child, all available for friends and family to use for their 2019 New Year Essential Oil Roller. They were able to make a new roller with some essential oils that they may not have yet, and take it home with them, it was so much fun! I made two rollers yesterday, to help keep my focus on two of my goals.
My first roller, will support me throughout the year with being more present and positive in more situations. I blended my favorite essential oil, Joy Essential Oil, with Gathering Essential Oil and Fractionated Coconut oil into a 10 ml roller. As we continue through the new year, I will be wearing this “Choose Joy” roller to remind myself of the joy around each gathering, and to help stay present. A bonus is that together, these essential oils smell absolutely amazing, making it an easy way to ditch toxic perfume.
The second roller that I made was my “crushing goals” roller. I blended Motivation, Abundance, and Envision Essential Oil with Fractionated Coconut Oil into a 10 ml roller. These are three of my favorite essential oils, and I'm always surprised by how my everyday life seems to align when positive affirmations and wearing abundance.

NEW 2019 Premium Starter Kit
After making new essential oil roller, we also talked about wellness for the rest of the winter! We were able to share how we support our bodies using essential oils, and the best way to do that is using your essential oils consistency. When we talk about wellness, there is never one thing, it’s about using essential oils together to support the entire body and starting to remove harmful things from the lifestyle.
The entire Young Living Premium Starter Kit will support everyone in the house and support a variety of body systems, all winter long, and now with the upgraded kit, it’s truly an unbelievable collection of essential oils. One of the most amazing announcements yesterday, is the fresh new look and upgrade that Young Living has done with the Premium Starter Kit.
Young Living always amazes me, honestly every time they seem to outdo their last announcement. Each convention and rally, they are always seeking the best for their members and the world, yesterday they truly outdid themselves. They have created the best, new premium starter kit by adding two of our favorite essential oils and more thieves products for those getting started!
Here’s what they added to the Premium Starter Kit:
In the 2019 Premium Starter Kit, you will now be receiving, a diffuser of your choice, now 12 essential oils (lavender, panaway, frankincense, raven, citrus fresh vitality, lemon vitality, peppermint vitality, thieves vitality, digize vitality, stress away, and back to the collection comes Peace & Calming and Valor), Thieve Hand Purifier, Two Ningxia Red Singles, and Thieves Household Cleaner sample. I mean this is absolutely amazing! The Premium Starter Kit now offers a variety of wellness essential oils, as well as emotional balance, sleep, and mental health, which through education all connects to our physical health.
There is some history here, back in 2015, Valor and Peace & Calming, two of Young Living’'s most famous and sought-after essential oils, were removed from the kit due to sourcing issues and sustainable, ethical farming practices. Gary Young immediately started working to figure out how how we could get these oils back. Now, THEY’RE BACK to the starter kit! The Premium Start Kit, is now an unbelievable deal with over $400 worth of product for only $165, not only did Young Living add more than $90 worth of products to the Premium Starter Kit, they changed the price by only $5 for their members. It truly is the best way to receive a collection of oils and save money in the process.
Valor and Peace & Calming have always been essential oils that I recommend to my friends, I know many who hoard the crap out of these two oils because of how much success they have found, and now it's wonderful because they simply come in the starter kit!
Valor is a blend of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense. Applying Valor is a great way to also get Frankincense into your daily routine for a cheaper option. I love valor for so many reasons, this is one that I use often aromatically and topically.
Be sure to read through my How to Use Essential Oils Aromatically to learn all the ways to use valor! Here is the deal, Valor is referred to from many as a "chiropractor in a bottle" because of how we feel it aligns our bodies and minds. Honestly, I take an inhale of Valor through cupping and I just feel my body become centered again. Valor can also be used to stop pesky snoring by putting 1 drop on the big toe! Many use Valor because it promotes feelings of bravery, when I have something big or tough to do, I’ll be applying Valor all day long until its over. I know that it's a big one for Mamas and for little ones. My nephew called this his big and brave roller, he apples this on before school everyday! I know that helped my sister and him through the start of school after a nice long summer with momma being home.
Valor can be used in bath salts, sleep cream, and "monster spray" for kiddos who struggle with fear at bedtime. Again, also think: first day of school, dance recital, big soccer game, test-taking days, trying something for the first time, airplane flights, kids in daycare or at church nurseries who are afraid without you, anything where an anxious heart could use a little help.
Valor also helps with occasional soreness! Runners, swimmers, pogo-stick jumpers, this one's for you. We live to add it to some PanAway and Copaiba in a cream, it's good.
Valor simply smells amazing, it's perfect to wear as a daily perfume while pushing you through the day with no fears.
PEACE & CALMING, just as amazing as Valor. It’s a gentle and sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. I know many people that lose their crap over it FOR GOOD REASON! I love using Peace & Calming during my evening yoga practice to wind down the mind and body before sleep.
Peace & Calming can be diffuse to freshen the air, especially in rooms where children play or study. It can be applied to the bottom of feet before bed as part of a bedtime ritual for your whole family or diluted for a calming back massage before naps or bed.
When I have some extra time or am in the need of some self-care, I add 4-5 drops to 1 cup Epsom salt for a calming bath at the start of the day or as part of an evening routine. I think this is perfect addition to tubby time to help small children prepare for bed as well. Another great idea, add a few drops to Young Living Bath & Shower Gel Base for a cleanser your entire family will love. Lastly, as a teacher, seeing over 500 students in a day, I couldn't do that and maintain my sanity without my Peace & Calming roller.
There are other really cool changes to the starter kit. It has a newly designed outer sleeve, the packaging with Young Living is always beautiful. A new tray that folds into a neat design and can stand, to make it easier to use your oils everyday. You invested in your health, when you get your Premium Starter Kit, do not put is away, keep it out where you can access the essential oils everyday.
You will no longer see Copaiba Essential Oil in the starter kit, it was removed due to supply restraints. Young Living only took away one essential oil, but again replaced it with two rockstar essential oils so we'll take it! Copaiba Essential Oil is certainly an essential oil that you want to buy, and it's now hard to get so I would order that before its out of stock for while. We use Copaiba to support our overall wellness and rejuvenation of healthy cells, bones, joints, and to magnify the properties of other essential oils.
Citrus Fresh is now a vitality essential oil in the 2019 Start Kit, which means you can add a drop to your water for a refreshing burst of citrus flavor and a hint of spearmint. The blended of citrus oils supports our wellness and energy.
Now, the extra goodies always found underneath has been upgraded as well! There is now a Thieves Hand Purifier, two Ningxia Red Packets, Thieves Cleaner Sample and Stress Away. Also underneath the tray of oils is two roller fitments and the P&C. The cumbersome sample bottles and cards are gone to make room for this greatness.
Also, now included is a new Young Living Lifestyle booklet to get new members started off on the right track!
With the new design of the kit, extras and adding the elite Valor and Peace & Calming, that's an increased value of $90! Total, the kit is now worth over $400. Honestly, I haven’t event let that sink in yet, it’s unbelievable how much we are getting for our small investment of 165$ for the Desert Mist Premium Starter Kit. All those changes, all the extra value, and the price is only increasing $5.
The 2019 Premium Starter Kit is currently only for the United States. As of right now there are NO limits on number of Premium Starter Kits orders and it is for existing and new members. Existing members, simple order the new kit in your dashboard, as a quick order. Interested in buying essential oils, sign up with me on my “buy oils” page, and select “Option A - Member”.
I’ll be covering a whole new blog post on the 2019 Premium Starter Kit soon, and I’ll take you through all of the essential oils and how we use them in our homes. If you have questions, please reach out to me, I will help you the entire way once you get your Premium Starter Kit.

Lastly, after educating about the Savvy Makeup sale and the New Premium Starter Kit, my sister and I also prepared a batch of Elderberry Syrup for all of our guests to take home with them.
I have been hearing so many people talk about elderberries, I thought it would be a perfect LYPR favor to send home with our friends and family, and it turned out to be a huge hit.
Actually, Elderberry syrup has been on my list of things to add to my wellness regimen for some time, so I used the opportunity to host a class and make something new for myself too.
Elderberry Syrup has been all the rage lately, and there’s many reasons why! Do a quick search, Elderberries are said to support the immune system, bone health, and they have also been known as a natural anti-inflammatory. They have been used for years as a natural cold and flu remedy. Elderberries are known to be full of our antioxidants so of course we love them, specially during the winter and fall months because antioxidants support our immune system, fight free radicals, and support healthy cells.
I found, in a quick search, that elderberries are full of vitamin A, vitamin B, and vitamin C, all great to keep up above the wellness line. Of course, when we find natural healthy things out there we love to add our essential oils to make it an extra healthy, wellness recipe.
For the rally, my sister pre-made a batch of Elderberry Syrup, so that all we had to do at the workshop was add our very own Vitality Essential Oils to the cooled syrup. I highly suggest doing the same if you are hosting make and take workshop and sharing with friends.
Ingredients for Elderberry:
⅔ cup elderberries
3 1/2 cups of water
1 cup of raw honey
Young Living Vitality Essential Oils
These are the vitality essential oils I added, there are several to choose from.
2 drops cinnamon vitality- powerful immune support
2 drops clove vitality- really crazy high antioxidants, do some research on clove.
2 drops ginger & nutmeg vitality- digestion support and helps combats occasional inflammation, when 90% of immune system resides in the gut these too stimulate and regulate healthy digestion, only seems right.
2 frankincense & lemon vitality- supports healthy cells and immune system.
Directions for Elderberry Syrup:
First, pour water into a saucepan and then add elderberries. Bring the elderberries to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer for about 45 minutes. Allow the liquid to reduce to about half and then at that point, remove them from the heat. Let them cool to lukewarm, so that you are able to handle the mixture. Begin to mash the elderberries carefully using a spoon or flat utensil, then pour through a strainer into a glass jar or bowl.
When the Elderberry liquid is no longer hot, add the raw honey, and desired drops of essential oils. You can also discard the elderberries that have been separated from the liquid. The elderberry syrup should be stored in an airtight container in fridge, I put mine and my friends in an 8 ounce mason jar, and it’s good for about two months.
You can use Elderberry Syrup for a lot of different things, I will simply add it to my Ningxia shot every morning or add it to my afternoon smoothies. I’m excited to add it to my yogurt parfait or my morning oatmeal, for a natural delicious taste that will support my immune system too. When feeling under the wellness line, I’ll simply have a spoonful a day.

Well, that was our Rally Event in a recap! I love having workshops, educating my friends and family about how to use Young Living Essential Oils and products everyday. If you want to collaborate, want to learn about a specific topic, I can help - that’s what I’m here for!
I certainly use essential oils for everything! In fact, if you buy the new 2019 Premium Starter Kit, in January from me, right here on my getting started page, you will receive a completely free workshop taught by me, in person or online, for you and your friends.
