So you’ve been hearing about this amazing kit and these magical oils. Not sure you’ll use it or get your bang for your buck? Think again!! Let me help you simplify what these oils can do for you. The options are endless, that’s why I reach for these kit oils every single day…and you will too.

Many of us are looking for a natural alternative! I’m so excited to share that here in Canada, Health Canada (our government’s department for public health) has approved many of the kit oils, as Natural Health Products (NHPs)! In addition to the topical and aromatic benefits of these oils, they can relieve symptoms associated with common ailments, as well as restore, maintain, and support good health.

Lemon Essential Oil

This oil supports your detox organs and can also help with an afternoon energy boost.

Copaiba Essential Oil

Easy Everyday Uses:

Thieves Essential Oil Blend

Thieves is another GREAT one to use regularly for immune support. It smells amazing, like cinnamon and clove with a hint of lemon, and works wonders. I use it regularly with my oils and products but if I start feeling a little drained, I double up on my Thieves and antioxidants like Ningxia Red (you get samples of that in your kit too).

They have an entire Thieves line for personal care and your home. The Thieves Essential Rewards kit comes with cleaner, toothpaste, hand soap, hand purifier, and more. It’s the easiest and most affordable way to start making the switch to harsh chemical-free living.

Easy Everyday Uses:

  • dilute Thieves 1:4 (1 part Thieves, 4 part carrier oil - it will always show you the ratio on the bottle) and apply to the spine using a roller ball as well as to the bottoms of the feet or make an immunity roller or rub combining Thieves, Lemon, and Frankincense.

    Your Diffuser...


The top two diffusers options are available to all Canadians getting the kit. My personal recommendation is the Desert Mist for the longer operating time and the intermittent setting.

All four diffuser options are available to anyone getting the kit in the United States. At regular price, I would still recommend the Desert Mist. For an upgraded price, you can have the Aria diffuser, the most premium and elite diffuser Young Living creates. Consider it a diffuser and impressive decor piece all in one. The Aria can be bought on its own in Canada (outside of the kit).
