THE NEXT 11: CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

Christmas Spirit 5ml (Wholesale) $10.25























Why we love it: I mean who doesn't love the smell of the holidays, right? And it's such an affordable oil to keep in your arsenal. I often diffuse this with Northern Lights Black Spruce and it's dreamy.

What Young Living has to say about Christmas Spirit: Christmas Spirit is a sweet, spicy blend of orange, cinnamon, and spruce essential oils that tap into the happiness, joy, and security associated with the holiday season.

What if Christmas Spirit is out of stock? You can pretty much count on it going out of stock around the holidays so make sure you stock up in the warmer months. You can thank me for that little tip later ;) If you can't get your hands on it, just make your own with Northern Light Black Spruce, Orange and Cinnamon Bark. Easy peasy.

Tea Tree 15ml (Wholesale) $26.00

Why we love it:  Tea tree (also known as Melaleuca) is a must have for skin support.  Add 1-2 drops to your body lotion and apply as needed.  It’s also great with blemishes and adding to your shampoo to help keep your scalp healthy. See some recipes below for easy DIYs to use tea tree in.

Chemical-Free Dry Shampoo Recipe


1/4 c Arrowroot or Corn Starch

2 drops Rosemary Oil

2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (for dark hair only)

THE NEXT 11: ORANGE

Young Living offers Orange and Orange Vitality.  Both oils will work the exact same, so if one is out of stock, feel free to buy the other one!

Orange 15ml (wholesale) $10.75
Orange Vitality 5ml (wholesale) $6.00
























Why we love it:  This oil is great for cellular support (orange vitality), uplifting and emotional balance.  It’s a great one to diffuse first thing in the morning, to help perk you up.  Also try placing a couple drops on a cotton ball and placing at the bottom of your trash can in the bathroom, to help with odors. I encourage you to do your research on Limonene, which is naturally occurring in citrus oils. You will want to use this oil daily if you do.
Orange essential oil uses:
  • Diffuse Orange essential oil in your children’s play areas. They’ll love the sweet, playful scent!
  • Depending on what you choose to blend with it, Orange is a great seasonal scent for both warmer and cooler months. Diffuse Orange with Lime, Lemon, or Tangerine for a sunny warm-weather scent, or diffuse it with Cinnamon and a hint of Clove for a festive smell perfect for the holidays.
  • Even clean linens may need a little freshening. Combine 8–10 drops with distilled water or witch hazel in a small spray bottle and spritz over linens and in closets to keep your sheets, towels, and clothes smelling great.
What Young Living has to say about Orange:  Orange essential oil, cold-pressed from the rinds of oranges, has a juicy aroma reminiscent of the fresh fruit. Orange oil offers a sweet, peaceful aroma that can fill a room with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity.  Try making it a part of your morning routine—either diffused or applied topically—to start your day off with an inspiring boost of citrus aroma. Orange, like other citrus oils, can cause photosensitivity, so avoid applying it to exposed skin before spending time out in the sun.

And if you're a Marylander, you do Crabs and Beer. It's a thing. And you can't have a Blue Moon without a drop of Orange Vitality oil. It's SOOOO much better than an orange wedge squeezed in. Trust me and you're welcome ;)









Orange Vitality uses: 
  • Support your wellness daily by adding 1–2 drops to a vegetarian gel capsule and taking as a dietary supplement.
  • Use in culinary dishes—sweet or savory—for added flavor and zest.
  • Add 2–3 drops to a water bottle or glass of water for flavor, or mix it with other Vitality essential oils for various flavor combinations. Infusing water with dietary essential oils is a great option for anyone who struggles swallowing pills and capsules.
What Young Living has to say about Orange Vitality: Orange (Citrus sinensis) Vitality™ has a clean, refreshing scent and flavor and contains the naturally occurring constituent limonene. Young Living uses it in many products, such as NingXia Red® and our proprietary wellness supplement ImmuPro™.  Embrace the versatility of Orange Vitality essential oil as a culinary tool by using it in your cooking to brighten up or complement dishes with its citrus flavor. Use it in baked goods for an acidic contrast to the sweetness of desserts and baked goods. Keep your body hydrated by adding a few drops of Orange Vitality oil and other Vitality oils such as Ginger Vitality to your water for a burst of flavor. Orange Vitality combines well with other fruity flavors, making it the perfect addition to smoothies, drinks, and NingXia Red.
What if Orange is out of stock?  Try Tangerine, Lemon, Grapefruit or Citrus Fresh.

THE NEXT 11: RAVEN



Raven 15ml (wholesale) $34.75

Why we love it: Raven is one of our favorite winter time oils. Apply it to your neck/chest/back before bedtime for a soothing feeling. We add to our nighttime and naptime diffusers as well. Some people recommend using Raven on kids 5 and up and using RC as an alternative on little ones. We have used both on our boys with great results. If we run out of RC, we add this to our Winter roller of Copaiba, Frankincense RC/Raven and Lemon. It is used heavily on our boys.

What Young Living has to say about Raven: With a fresh, crisp aroma, Tea Tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) helps maintain a healthy-looking scalp and hair, and reduces the appearance of blemishes.

Why we love it: There are so many ways to use Cedarwood. Here are a few...

Apply 1-2 drops to your shampoo each time you wash.
Apply a few drops to the bottom of your feet/neck/forehead/chest before bedtime.
Add to your diffuser at bedtime. We use White Angelica as well. 2 drops each. It's our favorite combo.

THE NEXT 11: OREGANO

Young Living offers Oregano and Oregano Vitality.  Both oils will work the exact same, so if one is out of stock, feel free to buy the other one!
  • Oregano 15ml (wholesale): $27.75
  • Oregano Vitality 5ml (wholesale): $11.75


















Why we love it:  This is one oil that we are never without.  Our oil cabinet is always stocked with Oregano.  It’s not only great for flavoring foods (Oregano Vitality), it’s also great to help support your immune and respiratory system.  We take capsules of several vitality oils frequently in the winter time....Oregano Vitality, Thieves Vitality, Lemon Vitality and Frankincense Vitality. Please keep in mind this is a HOT oil.  DO NOT rub Oregano on your skin without a carrier oil (olive, grapeseed, coconut, hemp).  Applying to the bottom of your feet is a great place for Oregano, since that is an area of skin that isn’t usually sensitive (still use a carrier oil). We use a foot roller every day with Thieves and Oregano, especially during the winter months.
What Young Living has to say about Oregano:
  • Oregano (Vitality) is more than just a seasoning—it may also support a healthy lifestyle when taken as a dietary supplement. Oregano Vitality essential oil is a key ingredient in ImmuPower essential oil blend and is included in the Raindrop Technique essential oil collection.
  • Oregano (Vitality) is an easy way to flavor savory dishes. Its distinctive, pungent taste makes it an indispensable addition to Mediterranean and Mexican cuisines, though it can be used in a variety of cuisines and recipes.
  • While its spice makes it a delicious addition to dishes when used sparingly, when taking it as a supplement, be sure to use a carrier oil such as V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex or olive oil to dilute this powerful oil.

What if Oregano is out of stock?  Try Thieves, Clove or Cinnamon Bark.
