I want to start doing a review of my monthly Essential Rewards order from Young Living to give everyone an idea of what Essential Rewards (ER) is, the products Young Living offers, and how I use them. I also did a little video unboxing of this month that you can see below. I’ve been ordering from Young Living’s ER program for 18 months now and LOVE the products and freebies I get from this. Yep, FREE OILS! Once you start using your Starter Kit oils for all kinds of things, you’re going to want to replace them and check out other products so why not get some FREEBIES in the process?! Young Living has a great FAQ page the explains ER.
This month my ER order included:
- 15ml Lavender Essential Oil
- V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex
- Mint Satin Facial Scrub
Lavender Essential Oil
This oil is my. JAM. Any time I am close to running out I immediately order more because I use it for everything. I add it to my face wash, face toner, soothing hand cream, in calming and seasonal stuffiness blends, to lavender bath bombs or salts, and I diffuse it almost daily next to my bed or to promote relaxation in the evening. Lavender is great for promoting healthy skin and hair, and we use it with peppermint and lemon for support with mild seasonal stuffiness. I can’t wait to share more of my recipes and projects with ya’ll that use lavender essential oil.
V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex
This is crazily enough my first time ordering this stuff. I ordered some fractionated coconut oil and jojoba to use as carrier oils when I first got my kit and haven’t really needed to restock since. I’ve heard great things about it, though, so I was very excited to try it out. What I love about it so far is that it’s very versatile. It’s light and gentle enough to use on hands and face, can be added to roller blends, and I can use it in recipes like foaming hand soap and face wash. It doesn’t have a particular smell or color which I can’t always say about my carrier oils so that’s a plus as well 🙂 I would definitely recommend giving this oil a try as a carrier, whether you’re a beginner or a long-time oily pro.
Mint Satin Facial Scrub
Okay so I obviously said already that I make my own face wash using lavender and some other oils. I also make my own sugar scrubs at home. I’m so glad I added the satin facial scrub to my routine though. It is, first of all, great for traveling when I don’t feel like lugging other products and trying to make sure they don’t leak all over my stuff. It also makes my skin feel so clean and soft! I love using it in the morning because the mint is super invigorating and helps wake me up. I also know that I can trust Young Living’s products not to contain any of the scary chemicals that the over-the-counter skincare I was buying did.
Leave me a quick comment to let me know if you’ve tried these products or any others you might be interested in! I can’t wait to do a March unboxing for you! 🙂
