Our TOP 5 Essential Oils | What are their benefits?

It was quite funny when it was first introduced to us by a friend of ours. It was the first time we’ve heard of the brand… much more, we have few reservations about the use of essential oils. It was for promotion purposes that we were gifted a Premier Starter Kit, and for content-purposes, we gave it a try. Made some research about it, and tried it ourselves. After two weeks, we finally took some shots during one of our daycation in a hotel (for more aesthetics and presentable background). That was August of 2018.

From then on, these essential oils have became part of our daily lifestyle. My wife always diffuse these oils in different parts of the house – refreshing scents in the living room, odor-eliminating scents in the kitchen, and calming scents in the bedroom. It also come in very handy for topical use (rub or roll on) – for tummy problems, for dizziness and headache, for cough and flu, and even muscle pains. Amazingly, these products can also be taken internally to boost immune system and many other healthy benefits.

While we don’t recommend it for those with allergies and with chronic illnesses, taking it in moderation and small amount initially is highly advisable. You may also need to cross-check some online references for “best practices” by long-time oilers, and get ideas on what work and not (ask for your enroller’s FB page or group social media where they posts valuable information).

Without further adieu, we would like to share to you our TOP 5 Essential Oils:

Posing for camera isn't really my thing so lets blur it out. But i am so confident to say that ive found another remedy for easing my stomach problems aside from the usual liniment oils that are available in the groceries. I was also surprised to know that these @younglivingeo essential oils have a lot of use and benefits aside from aromatic ones… they can also be used topically (rub or massage) or can me mixed in our food or drinks (with specific instructions). This DIGIZE vitality essential oil, for example, can be used topically over the abdomen to help relieve digestive problems like indigestion, heartburn, gas, and bloating to name a few. It doesnt really smell as nice as the other essential oils because it has a different use and it is made to work for its purpose!

[UPDATED] While there are other oils which are also very useful and beneficial, these 5 essential oils are available in the Premier Starter Kit.

Here are some of the reminders when using essential oils:

1. Each bottle of essential oils have directions on how to use it; these directions vary based on your region. Please consult the product label for appropriate usage directions. .. always! 

2. If discomfort or irritation occurs, stop using the essential oil and apply carrier oil to the affected area. If a rash occurs, this may be a sign of detoxification. Drink adequate water to encourage the release and removal of toxins in your body. It is always advised to initially put a small amount initially and observe any reactions.

3. Avoid contacting sensitive areas such as eyes, ears, genitals, and mucous membranes with essential oils. If you choose to use the oil in any sensitive area, dilute 1 drop of the essential oil with 5–10 drops of V-6 or another carrier oil.

4. Many essential oils are appropriate for use on children but should be diluted with a carrier oil prior to use. Some Young Living products come prediluted with carrier oil, as indicated on product labels, and are intended for direct application on children. See reminder No.2

5. If you have a disease or medical condition or are using a prescription medication, it is recommended that prior to using an essential oil, you consult with a health care advisor who has experience with essential oils. Seek the advice of the prescribing physician and a pharmacist about potential interactions between any medication and essential oils.  

Better yet consult professional help is such essential oils are safe to use based on your condition.
