Becoming a Witch

My husband thinks I am a wanna-be-hippie. First the bees and now oils. I blame Colorado and it's all-natural-crunchy-savetheplanet-attitude. Mr. B comes in the bedroom every night and says, "Whatever is misting over there in that diffuser thing... stinks!" It doesn't stink. It smells lovely, depending on the combination. Not all of them are lovely though. #truthbetold

When you start a new hobby, you've got to experiment right? Well friends, that's what I am doing. Experimenting with Young Living Essential Oils.

I had been doing research on oils for a couple months before deciding to start using them myself. A few mama friends that I follow on social media were posting pictures of these cute little oil bottles - some were putting oils in their bath water, some were using oils to help their kiddos sleep through the night, some were using oils to relieve their allergies, some were using oils to give them energy throughout the day, and some were using oils to ease their migraines. By the 10th post, I started creating a pinterest board. Because isn't that where most women do their research? Admit it, the secret is out.

My oil curiosity went from nothing to obsessed within 30 minutes. I was filling my friends Pinterest feeds with medicine cabinet makeovers, recipes for bug repellent, treatments for autism, asthma cures, and pain bombs. Go to your Pinterest search tab and type in "Young Living {insert ailment}". Grab a cup of tea or bottle of beer first, because you may lose yourself in curiosity.


Mr. B and I have been rather fortunate when it comes to our health, but the ailments we do have, I am going to try and treat with these hocus pocus potions. #wannabewitch #notahippie

I've had my kit for approximately 9 days, and so far, I have been using Frankincense to help clear up my teenage skin, Peppermint to ease my headaches caused from unpacking, Lemon to detox my liver after drinking too much, Lavender to help me fall asleep, and Purification to help eliminate Monty's ear aches. Mr. B even let me rub some PanAway on his shoulders after our long moving days. He hasn't admitted that it cured his pain, but he wasn't complaining as much the next day. #consideritawin

The testimonials are what lured me in, so if you find yourself looking for some, visit The Happy Oils blog.

I have visions of sitting around my table, towards the end of October, wearing a witch hat, mixing up potions and playing Hocus Pocus in the background. Perhaps I need to find myself a black cat in the mean time? #thackerybinx

If you want to join my witch parties, I highly recommend you start with the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. This is what I purchased to get started and it's the best bang for your buck. The price of Frankincense alone is $90. And that comes in the kit along with 10 MORE oils. You'll also get a diffuser, samples to share, and a guide to learning how to use your oils. It's like Christmas Morning Halloween Evening when it arrives.

How to become a witch:

1. Click here for the sign-up page.

2. Select "Sign Up As: Young Living Wholesale Member" - which means you will get 24% off all future oils orders. Forever. As long as you spend $50 annually - that's easy to do. Promise.

3. The "Enroller ID" and "Sponsor ID" boxes should already be filled in for you. If they aren't, my ID is 1937143, and you can fill in both boxes with this number.

4. Fill out your name, billing address, shipping address, and contact info. (The reason you are asked for your SSN is for tax purposed; if you make over $600/year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail, as is required by law. Young Living never shares this info with anyone.)

5. Create your password and pin which you will use to log into your account and order your oils.

6. Select your enrollment order. This is where you can specify which starter kit you would like. You must sign up with one of these kits to become a Wholesale Member. I recommend the Premium Starter Kit with the Aroma Diffuser ($160). That's what I got and I love my diffuser. The Home Diffuser is nearly the same only it doesn't have a timer and the mist covers less of a radius than the Aroma one.

7. Set up your option Essential Rewards Program. Buying of the ER kits is NOT a requirement to sign up ad a Wholesale Member! This is a rewards program you can opt into to start earning money back to help pay for your oils. At this point, you can skip this step by selecting, "No, Thank you. I plan on enrolling in the Essential Rewards Program later." If one of the ER kits looks valuable to you, then go for it in addition to your starter kit.

8. Agree to Terms and Conditions.

9. CONFIRM YOUR ORDER. Some folks miss this step and end up not fully checking out. To confirm, the tool with log you in and it will show you your order again and it will make you enter in your payment information again.

Once you sign up, you'll get an Enroller ID too, to share with your curious friends. The more you share it, the more FREE oils you get!

For the skeptics (including my loving husband), I will post my very own oily success stories from time to time so you can decide for yourself if this really is hocus pocus or something you want to experiment with too!

See you on the witches side. 


  1. Great post. much useful information i need. Thanks you

  2. Essential oil is a hydrophobic fluid which is for the most part separated from leaves, stems and components of a plant. You can't consider it as oil in light of the fact that for the most part oil contains the unsaturated fats, which are not found in this.

  3. Discover how you can make your life notice great and never live in stink again. An oil diffuser may be exactly what you're searching for.

  4. I love essential oil and use it everyday for many purposes. I like the JOY blend, how can I buy one of those?

  5. Thank you for such an interesting and informative article. One of the best articles on the subject that I read !!
