Make a Shift in 2024: Your Easy-button to True Wellness

Updated: Dec 22, 2023

Are you overwhelmed with all the natural living information out there?

Do you want to shift towards a low-tox lifestyle?

Do you need simple, effective tools for your home, your health, and life in general?

Then you are in the right place!

As the gatekeepers of our homes, we have such a great opportunity to bring in healthy products and create good habits for ourselves and families. But sometimes that can feel overwhelming.

  • What supplements do you really need?

  • What’s up with that grocery store Lavender?

  • Is that natural cleaner really natural?

  • Can you use these things around pets?

  • WHERE do you even start?

Take a breath, friend. I’ve got you. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming (or budget-breaking!). It is as simple as making a shift. Then another. Then another.

One small step + consistency = impactful results.

One shift here leads to another shift there, and pretty soon you have tools in your toolbox for your daily wellness needs, for a truly clean home, for handling the bumps in the road, and for having fun and savoring each and every season.

So sit back, take a breath, and get ready for some easy ways that you can take small steps towards a healthier, better lifestyle just with three easy-button kits. These kits are perfect whether you are looking for a collection of the most useful essential oils for every need, supplements for daily wellness, or non-toxic cleaning products.

  • FreshStart Diffuser

These favorites are a simple way to make the shift towards a healthier lifestyle!

The Convenience of Topical Oils - Deep Relief Roll-On, Stress Away Roll-On

One thing we love about Young Living is the pre-diluted roll-on options – just open and go! So easy to use and so effective. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Deep Relief Roll-On is one of Young Living's most popular blends and will be your new tension-melting best friend! This pre-diluted blend combines Peppermint, Wintergreen, Copaiba, Clove, and Fir essential oils (plus more!) to provide icy cool relief wherever you need it!

Ditch the store-bought creams and grab your Deep Relief Roll-on! All the icy cool relief with none of the chemicals and SO easy to use.

  • Apply onto the temples, back of neck, and shoulders and gently massage to relieve stress and tension.

  • Apply generously to any sore or tense muscles or onto legs and feet after standing or walking all day.

Next up in our list of favorite roll-ons is Stress Away.

We call this beachy blend a “vacation in a bottle” because it gives us a moment of zen whenever we (or someone we love!!) need it. Stress Away combines Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender essential oils for the ultimate relaxing blend.

This easy to use roll-on smells lovely and calming and makes a great addition to DIY body butter, bath salts and more. We also love it for calming little ones!

  • Apply to the neck, chest and shoulders and feel the tension melt away. Apply liberally and frequently

  • Use on the chest and feet before bedtime – alone or with Lavender – to promote relaxation.

  • Use as a daily perfume or personal fragrance!

The Safety of Ingesting Pure Oils - Thieves, Peppermint

Not all essential oils are created equally, and we only want the good stuff for our health and our homes! We love having the option to ingest oils because we know that Young Living has the highest standard when it comes to quality.

Ingesting essential oils is like having herbal remedies right at our fingertips – but without the huge capsules that herbs tend to come in! This is because herbs are dried plant matter, so it takes a lot of it to get the response we need.

Oils are steam distilled from just-harvested plant matter, as close as you can get to a living plant! This means it doesn’t take nearly as much for us to get the benefits we need.

Two of our favorite oils for ingesting are Thieves (Immune support!) and Peppermint (digestive and tension support!).

Let’s talk about the beloved Thieves. This powerful blend of immune boosting oils works with the body's natural defense systems, making it one we reach for every day. Thieves is a combination of Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Lemon essential oils that smells amazing and kicks the germs to the curb at the same time. Some simple ways to use this blend include:

  • Add a drop of Thieves to an empty capsule, add some olive or coconut oil, and take it as a daily supplement.

  • Dilute Thieves 1:4 (1 part Thieves, 4 part carrier oil) and apply to the spine, over the lymph nodes, and/or to the bottoms of the feet.

  • Add a drop to honey, then pour warm water over for a Thieves Tea (you can also add your favorite herbal tea), add a drop or two to coffee grounds before brewing, or mix into your favorite latte recipe.

  • Diffuse! Studies have shown that the Thieves blend can blast 96% of airborne germs. Pair with Peppermint for a pick-me-up or with Lavender for a bedtime blend that supports the immune system.

Oh the sweet, soothing, icy cool feeling of Peppermint. This crisp oil can be diffused to create a focused environment for work or study, or it can be applied topically to soothe & cool muscles following activity.

Peppermint is also a digestive system powerhouse! Think about all the products on the stomach aisle at the pharmacy… they’re mint flavored! There is a good reason for that. Peppermint has long been known for its soothing abilities – from tension to sore muscles to digestion!

Some of the ways we Peppermint include:

  • Add a drop of Peppermint to an empty capsule, add some olive or coconut oil, and take it as a daily supplement.

  • Diffuse Peppermint while working or during homework time to create a focused environment.

  • Sprinkle a few drops in your shower for an awakening shower steam in the morning.

  • Apply it to your neck and shoulders or to tired muscles following physical activity for a cooling sensation.

The Power of Diffusing Oils - Lavender, Purification

I think just about everyone loves the feeling of a cozy candle in the fall or the fresh, crisp scent of an air freshener in the spring. It makes us feel comfortable in our spaces and cleanses the air around us. Scent is also a huge part of feeling safe, calm, focused, and relaxed, and we are able to achieve both those things with diffusing!

Diffusing is a wonderful health habit! Not only does it give your entire space the feeling you desire, you get all the benefits of inhaling the pure essential oils you are diffusing – immune support, respiratory soothing, calming and relaxing, focus and attention – win win!

There is no shortage of options for creating delicious, supportive diffuser blends, but two of our favorite oils for diffusing are Lavender and Purification!

Lavender essential oil is the original when it comes to aromatherapy, and for good reason. Lavender is calming, relaxing, and tranquil. We reach for it at bedtime, when our temples are pounding with tension, when our airways need calming due to air quality issues, and honestly anytime something feels aggravated!

This oil has endless uses – it is truly our Swiss Army Knife! In addition to its tranquil aroma, Lavender provides many skin care benefits, from beauty routines to first aid needs! Some ways we use Lavender include:

  • Diffuse Lavender at bedtime, with Lemon & Peppermint for air quality, with Eucalyptus for opening airways, and with Thieves for immune health.

  • Apply Lavender topically following sun exposure or add it to your facial essence, serum, or moisturizer.

  • Unwind in the evening with a calming Lavender-infused neck or back massage.

  • Use Lavender to help cleanse and soothe minor skin irritations. Pair with Frankincense and coconut oil.

When it comes to diffusing, Purification will be your diffuser BFF! This oil is our favorite way to keep our homes smelling fresh and clean - even if they aren't! It has a crisp, fresh aroma, and unlike many harsh chemical-based sprays it truly eliminates odors and doesn't simply mask them. It's a bright, cleansing blend of Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Myrtle, and Tea Tree that we use in so many different ways!

In addition to diffusing, try using Purification in these ways:

  • Add Purification to wool dryer balls to give your laundry a bright-smelling boost.

  • Drop Purification directly into areas that need some freshening - rain boots, forgotten laundry, diaper pails, etc.

  • Use Purification to support healthy airways! Simply mix a few drops with coconut oil and rub onto the chest, neck and back. (This blend is full of wonderful purifying oils for the immune & respiratory systems!)

  • Apply Purification topically to calm everyday skin irritations or use to spot-treat blemishes

The Essential Solutions kit also comes with a beautiful, exclusive diffuser – the Fresh Start Diffuser! This beautiful diffuser is streamlined and elegant and will be the perfect companion to any space. Fire it up and try one of these favorite diffuser blends:

  • Lemon Cookies: 6 drops each Lemon, Peppermint

  • Be Well: 5 drops Thieves, 4 drops Lavender, 3 doors Purification

  • Spring Breeze: 5 drops Thieves, 3 drops each Lavender, Peppermint

  • Fresh Linens: 6 drops Lavender, 4 drops Purification

Daily Wellness Kit

If you are feeling the stress of life, are dragging when it comes to energy, need some solid nutrition as a wellness foundation, or are wanting to flood your body with good things, then this is for you!

The Daily Wellness Kit has everything you need for 30 days of nutrient-dense, health support. It is a starter pack of the fan-favorite, super nutritious NingXia Red (daily wellness!) and NingXia Nitro (kick the brain fog) wolfberry drinks, as well some of the most popular Vitality oils (dietary oils) so you can give your everyday wellness a jumpstart! It includes:

  • NingXia Red, 30 count singles

  • NingXia Nitro, 14 tubes

  • Lime Vitality, 5mL

  • Orange Vitality, 5mL

If we had to pick one supplement for overall wellness, it would be NingXia Red. We’ll talk more specifics about this delicious health drink in a bit, but let’s just say we are better people when we have NingXia Red in our daily routine.

Energy, vitality, immune health, mental clarity, glowing skin, healthy hair. There isn’t much that NingXia can’t do! The key is in the antioxidant load that this supplement brings. More than any other supplement or food around!!

Pair this with the sharpness we feel from NingXia Nitro and the immune-supporting (and great tastes!) of Lime and Orange Vitality oils, and you have a powerful set of tools for daily wellness.

In short, these products will help you nourish your body, support normal energy levels and alertness, and add a bright, zesty, citrus twist to your wellness routine!

The Difference in a Well-Nourished Body - Ningxia Red

Oh, NingXia Red. This supplement does so much for our bodies that it’s hard to know where to start!

Besides helping with natural energy, NingXia Red has some amazing health benefits! It supports glowing skin, healthy hair, immune and hormone health, and is the highest known protection against the dangerous superoxide free radicals. It’s an antioxidant powerhouse.

Antioxidants are crucial for a well-nourished body. The word ‘antioxidant’ gets thrown around a lot in the health world, but what does it really mean?

Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow oxidative damage to our body. When our cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage to DNA. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and go into the cells to prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals.

This affects every single part of our body and health – skin, hair, vision, mental clarity, immune function, and more. So adding antioxidants to your daily routine can have a huge impact!

Just one serving of NingXia Red has the antioxidant power of…

4 Pounds Carrots

2 Quarts Carrot Juice

8 Oranges

1 Pint Orange Juice

2 Pounds Beets

2 Cups Beet Juice

3 Cups Raspberries

2 Cups Blueberries

… combined!

This delicious wolfberry puree is infused with Yuzu, Tangerine, Lemon and Orange essential oils, which add to its yummy taste but also help support the immune system.

NingXia is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and mineral, contains 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E. Basically, it is chock full of nutrients.

NingXia Red also has an amazing low glycemic index of 11 that does not spike blood sugar levels, making it a great choice for daily health!

In short, NingXia is a daily must!

Making Nutrition Fun - Lime Oil, Orange Oil, Ningxia Recipes

You put the Lime in the coconut and add some NingXia Red…

That’s how the song goes right?! Either way, we believe that wellness can be fun – and tasty! So we love adding in Lime and Orange Vitality oils into our routines.

Orange Vitality-

Cold-pressed from the rinds of oranges grown in Costa Rica, Orange oil has a sweet, authentic aroma and a bright, zesty taste. Orange Vitality oil also blends beautifully with other fruity flavors, making it a tasty addition to smoothies, juices, and NingXia Red! Orange is high in the compound limonene, so it provides digestive and immune system support to the body -- all while tasting great!

Lime Vitality-

Whether you're stirring it into drinks for a bright burst of flavor or giving your food a little extra citrus zip, Lime Vitality is a welcome kick of summer that you can enjoy year-round. This citrus oil is bright and happy and adds a little bit of zest to all your favorite foods and drinks!

But Lime is more than just a fun time. Lime essential oil is unique in that it is 100% bioflavonoid. Not only are bioflavonoids impressive in and of themselves, but they also help maximize the benefits of vitamin C by inhibiting its breakdown in the body. This means that Lime not only supports the immune system, it also stimulates detox pathways, helping to clear the body of toxins and unwanted waste. Lime is a wellness powerhouse!

There are so many ways to infuse your routine with these delicious, fun products. Try one of these or mix up your own!

  • Midday Mix Up: 1 packet Ningxia Red, 1 tube NingXia Nitro, Coconut water or mineral water, 1 drop Lime Vitality Essential Oil

  • Add Orange or Lime Vitality oil to your daily NingXia Red or a smoothie to give it a burst of flavor.

  • Add 1–2 drops of Orange Vitality and/or Lime Vitality oil to a vegetarian gel capsule and take daily for general health, immune, and antioxidant support.

  • Add a few drops of Lime Vitality to your favorite sauces, dips (guacamole anyone??), or marinades to add a burst of fresh lime flavor.

  • Infuse your water with 2-3 drops of Orange Vitality, Lime Vitality or a mix of the two. Refresh throughout the day as needed! Option to muddle some fruit in the water as well for extra flavor.

  • Add a drop of Orange or Lime Vitality to your favorite herbal tea for a wellness boost.

  • Make an Orange or Lime tea by adding a few drops of your chosen Vitality oil to a dollop of honey in a mug, then cover with warm water to infuse.

  • Add Lime or Orange to your daily NingXia Red! Empty the packet into a cup, then mix in the essential oils. 1-2 drops is usually enough!

  • Try this Everyday Wellness Tonic: 1 packet NingXia Red, 1 tube NingXia Nitro. 2 drops Orange Vitality, 1 drops Lime Vitality, Mineral water

  • Make your own mocktail! Mix NingXia Red, Vitality oils and any of the following: coconut water, sparkling water, kombucha, mineral water, prebiotic drinks.

Brain Power and Energy - Nitro

Say goodbye to brain fog with NingXia Nitro! We’re not kidding when we say that this little wellness shot is clarity in a bottle. Alertness, physical fitness, energy. Who doesn’t want (and need!!) those things?!

NingXia Nitro is a delicious, energizing wolfberry drink infused with essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract. These incredible ingredients work together to support alertness and cognitive and physical fitness.

Say goodbye to energy drinks and afternoon pick-me-ups because NingXia Nitro will be your BFF. No jitters or crashes or any harsh stimulants here!

The NingXia wolfberry is a nutrient powerhouse on its own, and when you add energizing B vitamins, ginseng for brain power, d-ribose for energy, and naturally occurring caffeine from green tea, you get the plant-powered boost that your body needs.

Plus, Nitro is infused with health-supporting essential oils – Spearmint, Peppermint, Nutmeg and Black pepper. These oils are great for digestion, supporting the adrenal system (the 'fight or flight' system that is often turned on too much, especially in the face of constant stress, exposure to computer screens, demanding jobs, etc.), and improving energy levels.

This slightly sweet supplement shot increases your overall energy reserves, sharpens your mind, and helps you become more focused!

Happy, Healthy Home Kit

Did you know that cleaning products are a common cause of issues like eczema, asthma, migraine headaches, decreased immunity and more? None of us want these things for ourselves or for our household, and making a shift to a happy, healthy home can be so so easy.

When it comes to creating a truly clean home, there is no better option than Thieves! This cinnamon-y essential oil blend is a germ-fighting powerhouse and is infused into an entire line of all-star cleaning products!

This kit is your one-stop shop for making a shift to a naturally clean, happy, healthy home. Clean your space from top to bottom with this collection of favorites!

  • Thieves Household Cleaner (one cleaner to rule them all)

  • Amber glass spray bottle (so you can get cleaning as soon as you open the box)

  • Thieves Dish Soap (sparkly clean dishes & an amazing stain remover)

  • Thieves Kitchen & Bath Scrub (natural scrubbing power for anything you need)

  • Thieves Laundry Soap (to clean up your laundry routine)

  • Thieves Essential Oil Blend (immune health, daily wellness, diffusing and MORE)

These products are some of our most used and are such a huge jump start on a low-tox home. Your cleaning products will touch and affect every single member of the household, so making a shift in this area of your life can have a big impact for everyone!

Reducing the Toxins We’re Absorbing: Thieves Dish Soap & Thieves Laundry Soap

Thieves Dish Soap is a cleaning powerhouse that is free of the typical sulfates, dyes, and synthetics found in many dish soaps, and the plant-based formula leaves no harsh chemical residues - on your dishes or on your skin. Plus, a little goes a long way, and this bottle can up your cleaning game in the rest of the house too!

PS - Thieves Dish Soap is also a laundry-room favorite for fighting stains! Just dab a little on a stain, gently scrub with a laundry brush, and wash as normal!

Speaking of the laundry room…

Did you know that conventional laundry soap is a leading cause of skin allergies and irritation - especially in children? We don't often think about it, but the residues left on clothes and linens from conventional cleaners sit on our skin, often causing low-level irritation.

Plus, almost all conventional laundry options contain optical brighteners! Optical brighteners give clothing the appearance of being clean by reflecting blue light – giving the illusion of whiter-looking fabrics. The design of these chemicals is to absorb directly into fabrics and remain on clothes well after washing.

No thanks.

When it comes to washing our clothing and linens, Thieves Laundry Soap is hands-down our favorite. Safe, effective, eco-friendly and economical cleaning with the power of plants? Sign us up!

Fabrics come out of the washer clean and with a pleasant citrus aroma, thanks to a 100 percent pure blend of Thieves, Jade Lemon, and Bergamot essential oils! No fragrance, SLS, dyes, petrochemicals, formaldehyde, phosphates, synthetic perfume, and optical brighteners here!!

A Clean Home: Thieves Household Cleaner, Thieves Kitchen & Bath Scrub

How would it feel to only have 2 or 3 bottles of cleaner under your kitchen sink? How calming would it be to only have to grab one bottle of cleaner for your whole home? Wouldn’t it feel so great to open those cabinets and see a tidy, organized set of just a few items you can grab and clean anything and everything??

Well say hello to Thieves Household Cleaner and Thieves Kitchen & Bath Scrub! These two bottles, plus some hand soap and our amber spray bottle, are the only things under our kitchen sinks. AND they clean the whole house!

Thieves Household Cleaner (THHC) is the perfect, versatile go-to for all your cleaning needs for a happy, healthy home. This Young Living exclusive includes only plant-based and naturally derived ingredients – no synthetic shortcuts or potentially harsh ingredients.

Plus, the concentrated formula means that one 14.4oz bottle makes 20-25 spray bottles of standard cleaner! We love this household staple for everything from general cleaning to tough messes to DIYs.

And the sidekick for THHC? Thieves Kitchen and Bath Scrub!

This scrub is the perfect naturally derived cleaner: tough on messes and safe for your family! You get the power of a surface scrub without all of the harmful chemical smells and residue in conventional options.

Thieves Kitchen and Bath Scrub gains its tough scrubbing power from nepheline syenite, a naturally occurring mineral from Canada; baking soda that gently absorbs odors; sodium percarbonate that releases oxygen when combined with water, providing a powerful boost of cleaning power against tough stains; and Young Living's signature Thieves blend.

Side note: Thieves Kitchen & Bath Scrub is a great way to remove baked-on grease from your ovenware! Simply wet the area, sprinkle on Thieves Kitchen & Bath Scrub, add a few drops of Lemon essential oil and let sit. Then scrub as usual!

This is yet another reason we love these products - they are versatile and easy to use!

The DIY Dream: Thieves Oil & Lemon Oil

Whether you are an avid DIYer or more of a DI-buyer, you will love the versatility and ease of having Thieves and Lemon essential oils in your arsenal – for your home, your health, your skincare routine, and more!

Let’s start with Lemon.

This bright, crisp, versatile oil is a must have for every home for everything from cleaning to diffusing to removing sticky residues and stains. Think of Lemon as cleansing, purifying and your BFF for cutting through grease – whether that is on your dishes or on your skin! Plus, lemon is a natural mucolytic, meaning it can help support the airways during times of need.

Ohhhh, Thieves. Our beloved Thieves!

This powerful blend of immune boosting oils works with the body's natural defense systems, making it one we reach for every day. Use this spicy smelling oil in all your cleaning DIYs and to support overall immune health and daily wellness!

Here are some of the ways we use these versatile oils…
