Are you loving your Premium Starter Kit yet? Have you tried your diffuser? That was the first thing I did when I received my kit. I unwrapped the diffuser, filled it with water, and added some oils. I LOVED the scents that took over my home!
Remember if you haven’t ordered your Premium Starter Kit from Young Living, you can do so here. It’s a fabulous way to get started with introducing oils into your everyday life! You’ll receive $300.00 in oils and products, including a diffuser, for $160.00. And if you choose – and ONLY if you choose – you can actually start your own business – all for a $160.00 investment. And I’m happy to assist you and journey with you to learn about all the oils and products Young Living has to offer!
Today, let’s talk about the Purification oil you received in your kit. This oil is an example of a “blend”. It’s made up of several Essential Oils mixed together. In this case it’s six oils: Citronella, Lavandin (a blend of two Lavender oils), Lemongrass, Rosemary, Myrtle and Tea Tree. Think of this blend as a magic eraser for the air in your home. It works brilliantly getting odors out of your spaces! Cars, homes, offices and yes – as my daughter will attest – smelly gym bags – are no match for this blend!
My daughter is a very talented high school athlete. She plays field hockey in the fall, and softball in the Spring. That leaves about three months between sports that she doesn’t use her equipment back. This past softball season, she grabbed her bag, opened it and almost gagged. Apparently, she not only left her cleats in the bag, but also her socks from her last field hockey game (did I mention she a field hockey goalie?). Yeah – to say it didn’t smell good is really, really putting it lightly.
Out came the Purification oil! (Side note: my daughter thinks this oil smells like Fruit Loops, but agrees it has a pleasant smell. Of course, compared to her sports bag, that’s not saying much). I mixed the blend with some water I heated in the microwave (I always heat the water I use to make sprays or roller balls. I’ll explain this in a later post, but the short of it is heated water, I think, allows all the ingredients to mix together much more consistently, giving an even application) and sprayed my daughter’s sports bag LIBERALLY. Not only did it instantly rid the bag (and her room) of the smell, but it kept the smell from coming back.
Additionally, my future husband works within a warehouse that is not air conditioned. In the warmer months, his shirts could walk into the laundry on their own (he works hard. He’s a wonderful guy. But a guy none the less, you know?) And I have been known to play softball, flag football and dodgeball (although I’m retired from softball and football and will play my last dodgeball game next year. Age has caught up!), sometimes returning from games and matches not smelling so sweet. What I’m trying to say is – our home knows some odors. And not just from athletics or working hard – all three of us love to cook, and that includes some foods that like to linger long after they have been consumed!
In the diffuser, Purification is nothing but miraculous. Think back to a time when you cooked fish, or a curry dish, OR CABBAGE, or when you’ve fried some food or brought some outside food into your home. You leave for a while, maybe go to work, and when you open the door and walk in, there’s that odor to greet you. Purification oil in your diffuser either during or after cooking or consuming your “smelly food”, will take care of cleaning your air so no one will ever know!
A great tip someone gave me that TRULY works – put some Purification on some cotton balls, and then place the cotton balls in the corners of your dresser drawers, or linen closets, or in the vents of your car or instant freshness that lasts! I use wool balls in my laundry dryer instead of dryer sheets, and occasionally when there are some “well loved” clothing or items in the wash, I’ll add some Purification to the wool balls just to be sure there are no lingering odors in my family’s clothing.
Do you have something that could use a freshening up? Try your Purification oil, and then come back and tell us all how it worked!
Stay tuned – we’ll check out some additional oils in your Premium Starter Kit soon! As always, if you have any questions, or if you need some guidance or want to know more about Young Living, please reach out! I’m happy to answer any questions you have!
