Copaiba: Enhancer and Booster Extraordinaire

We are obsessed with enhancers and boosters. Salt, enhances the flavor of food. Borax and bleach, boosts the power of laundry detergent. A shot of espresso works magic in a cup of regular coffee. We love the things that make good things even better. Enter Copaiba.


Copaiba makes good things even better! Take Panaway, or Deep Relief for example. When layered with Copaiba, these “because my body hates me a little after the gym” oils go from, “I can help” to “Yes I did that. You’re welcome!” Copaiba makes the Mother of a teething baby smile and say, ‘what? Did I hear a little whimper?’

But don’t take my word for it. Experience this for yourself. The next time you have a little achy breaky anything… reach for that bottle you’ve left sitting in the box. It’s calling you.

Want some for yourself? Of course you do! Go here and sign up as a wholesale member (or retail if paying full price is what you prefer). Order your Premium Starter Kit and Copaiba is already in there :-). Plus, you’ll get ME as a forever resource and road trip guide on your journey down An Essential Road! See you on the path!

Patchouli: Not Yo’ Mamma’s Hippie Oil Anymore!

Born in 1956 meant that I was the tender age of 15 when the 70s hit. Whoa! 70s fashion! Bell bottoms, elephant pants, platform shoes, go-go boots, fishnet stockings (OMG yes!!) hip huggers and the hair..oh my the hair!! But what stands out in my memory were the smells. Hey, not THAT smell (YOU know who you are!) LOL …but the incense burners in the head shops and the Patchouli.

Young Living Patchouli Oil

Oh, the Patchouli! It’s not just for dropping on light bulbs anymore :-). Remember those rings that we dropped “oils” on and put on light bulbs?! Ha! Yep, guilty as charged! Again, Patchouli 🙂 But here’s what you probably didn’t know then, and I’m gonna tell you now. Patchouli Essential Oil is not ‘yo Mama’s OR yo’ Gramma’s hippie oil. While the smell is still grounding and promotes peace and awareness.

Patchouli, Say What?!

Patchouli is  excellent for promoting healthy skin and a must have ingredient for your hair care routine. Put it in your facial moisturizer or your shampoo for those ‘thirsty’ issues that crave some moisture.  Patchouli feels good on those rough itchy patches on skin and calms down the crazy that can come with it.

Or, Just Diffuse It

The skin care benefits of this 60s and 70s throwback oil are bountiful and I would have you go to “The Google” and indulge! And if you just want to walk down memory lane, or check out what your parents may or may not have indulged in…diffuse it! Peace Love and Patchouli!

What is a Premium Starter Kit

So you want to buy Essential Oils

….and somebody told you to get a Premium Starter Kit, also affectionately called a PSK.  NOW what do you do and just what IS a Premium Starter Kit anyway?

Well, first things first. The Premium Starter Kit is what comes with a Wholesale membership with Young Living. Simply put, it’s like a Costco Membership.  Except wth Costco all you get when you become a Member is a card.

When you become a Member with Young Living, you get eleven full size (not samples) bottles of some of their most popular Essential Oils PLUS a choice between two diffusers. In the kit also comes 2 Ningxia red ( a very popular antioxidant wolfberry juice) travel packs, 10 amber vials to share your treasure with your friends and some sample oil packets too.

All this comes with a lifetime member discount of 24% off everything you purchase for the cost of $160.00! All you need to do to keep your membership is spend 50pv ($50) within the calendar year. 

The Oils, you ask?

  • Frankincense – What does this oil NOT do? While Lavender is often called the “swiss army knife” of essential oils, the name can easily also be applied to Frankincense.  Used for everything from skin care to grounding in meditation, this one should be a staple in your personal arsenal and a must have in every home.
  • Lemon  – ah. Lemon. This Vitality oil can be consumed in water for a refreshing beverage or in tea both hot and iced. It ca be added to cakes and deserts calling for that crisp citrus flavor. Additionally, you can use this super oil as a degreaser or glass cleaner and let’s not forget that a little lemon in a garbage disposal makes the ‘stinky’ go away.
  • Lavenderarguably the most beloved of all Essential Oils near and far.  Not to mention versatile. Excellent for calming and relaxation. Perfect for skin care and soothing for just about everything.
  • Peppermint – the answer for so many many things. The achy head. Those annoying things that pop up on our lips from time to time ( you know what I mean). For the sluggish feeling you get when it’s time to go to the gym and your head and your body are not in agreement.  A little dab’ll do ya in some chocolate chip cookie batter or brownies or even to spice up your latte!
  • Copaiba – A Young Living Exclusive that is found to be able to enhance the effect of each of the other oils. When layered over PanAway for example, those joint and muscles will thank you. Placed along the jawline by Moms of teething littles,  this gem of an oil gets 5 out of 5 gold stars!
  • RC – For Respiratory support, this oil is worth the cost of the kit alone. Use it before any cardio exercise or for those times when you just need a little extra support.
  • DiGize – DiGize is a ‘stinky’ oil but oh so effective. Rub on the tummy when it’s just feeling a bit “off” or put a drop or two in some tea or water. Your digestive system will say “yes please’ and “thank you”.
  • PanAway – Another Young Living exclusive sometimes prompting the purchase of a Premium Starter kit just for this baby. This was the one that made me a believer in all things Essential Oils. Joints and Muscles need the support and this one delivers.
  • Thieves – Named after the legend of four thieves during the Bubonic Plague. It is said that, during that time, four thieves went from house to house to rob those who had succumbed to the illness. After the thieves were captured and tried for their acts of robbery, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to be around those afflicted long and often enough to rob them but not be affected by the illness. It’s interesting to note here that, during this time of the plague striking Europe, physicians were seen wearing long black robes, wide brimmed hats, and masks that appeared to have a beak.
  • The reason for doing this is that the masks were said to have contained a combination of herbs, spices, and essential oils that the physicians would breathe in order to keep themselves safe from those afflicted with the illness. Their long black robes were also said to be doused in a similar fragrant concoction and current research continues to build upon this theory. **(**  Needless to say, this oil is a HUGE benefit to the immune system in every way you can think of.  From early ‘yuckies’ to full blown ‘ewww’, this is a must have in every home. And I haven’t even talked about the non oil versions of this botanical. Cleaners, toothpaste, laundry, you name it. SO. Much. This.
  • Purification – As the name implies really. The prime ingredient in this blended oil is Citronella. Bugs HATE this oil. And odors just seem to ‘run away’ when Purification is around. From stinky gym shoes to kitchen smells, this is a go to in my home. Pair it with some lemon in the diffuser and just, be happy!
  • And last but not least, Stress Away – need I say more? This precious ‘friend in a bottle’ needs no description beyond it’s name. Trust. Me. With a Proprietary blend of Vanilla and Lime along with other oils you will go to your happy place and dare the world to drag you out.

Well, there you have it. The Premium Starter Kit from Young Living. An ensemble of products worth over $300, available to you for $160. PLUS you get the ongoing support of the person introducing you to the oils and the support and education given from the many Facebook groups, Blogs, internet pages and reference guides available.
