Ok so your starter kit arrived! NOW WHAT!? No, you are not the only one to feel this way. I promise. So let's keep it simple for today. 

Take the lid off of your diffuser and fill it with tap water to the fill line. It's either a line in the plastic or a little red piece, depending on which diffuser you chose. Reference the instructions in the box if you're unsure.


Add 2-4 drops Citrus Fresh oil.

Unpleasant smells throughout your home can be really hard to shake. Citrus Fresh essential oil blend combines Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Mandarin and Spearmint oils which help to banish bad smells. Making your home smell fresh and inviting without harsh commercial sprays is EASY! Just diffuse Citrus Fresh is stale-smelling areas of your home, drop onto cotton balls and leave them in heater vents, shoes, and drawers or combine 12 drops with distilled water in a spray bottle and shake for a natural linen spray.

Result: Eliminate odors and greatly enhance the air quality in your home. (Think stinky fish in the kitchen.)

Add citrus fresh to your favorite carrier oil or natural moisturizer to moisturize, tone and soften skin and improve the appearance of healthy-looking, brighter skin. Just be sure to apply with your nighttime skin routine, as citrus oils are photosensitive and should not be exposed to the sun.

One of the top items in our homes that we really need to chuck and trade in for a healthier option is deodorant. Once you do the research, you do not want to put that stuff right on your lymph nodes. No way!! Try using oils instead. And do a little research on the naturally occurring constituent, D-Limonene, found in Citrus Fresh. I want that stuff on my lymph nodes for sure!

Also, for extra stinky laundry, or even if we just want our clothes to smell delicious without adding chemicals to our washing machine, we use Thieves Laundry Soap with a couple of drops of Citrus Fresh added right into the machine. Works so well and it doesn't leave marks on our clothes. It's great for getting rid of that nasty Front-Loader machine smell too.

Thieves Laundry Soap is a great one to add to your first Essential Rewards order.

Lastly, did you know that dryer sheets are one of the most hazardous chemicals in your house? Start the ditch and switch and get yourself some WOOL DRYER BALLS instead. Just pop them in your dryer with a couple drops of YL Essential Oils (We prefer Citrus Fresh, Purification, Lavender, Lemon or Stress Away) and your laundry will smell great and be chemical-free at the same time. 

Here's a tip...attach a safety pin to one of your dryer balls and it helps to prevent static. I love easy fixes. Why do we overcomplicate things, right?

As always, I encourage you to do your own research as well to find even more ways you can use your oils because this only scratches the surface. 

Hope you enjoyed Day One of diving into your Premium Starter Kit...Next up... THIEVES.
