ESSENCE – AN EVERYDAY JOURNEY WITH ESSENTIAL OILS –

GETTING STARTED WITH ESSENTIAL OILS


ABOUT THE EDITOR • I’m a wife, mama, Jesus follower and freelance graphic designer. • I love coffee but lately Thieves tea has been my jam. • I live in Central Pennsylvania where we experience all the seasons, and my most favorite is Spring (is it April yet?!) • Creativity comes to life in all I do - mothering, creating a home, designing and day dreaming. • I became an essential oil believer after getting the Young Living Premium Starter Kit before my second baby was born to combat postpartum anxiety. It worked! • I love community and strive to make relationships what my life is about.


WELCOME This small magazine grew out of my love for essential oils and for graphic design and writing. As a mother of two little boys (two years and four months), I don’t have a lot of time to be creative so this is the perfect outlet. This is the inaugural issue of Simple Essentials, a quarterly digital magazine focused on making Young Living essential oils accessible and easy for the modern home. There is so much information out there, especially on the web, about oils that it’s hard to digest everything. I want this magazine to be a place where others can learn, be inspired and join a community of other oilistas. As in any good story, you have to start at the beginning. So I’ll start this magazine by going over the basics, what essential oils are and how to use them. Young Living has more than 120 single oils and blends. Overwhelmed just thinking about where to start...probably. So let’s just begin with eleven diverse oils that will revolutionize your home and how you care for yourself and others. Thanks for joining me on this journey dear friends! Blessings, Laura Jade

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS? An essential oil is the “essence” of a plant’s fragrance. The concentrated, natural, fragrant liquids are extracted from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The oil is released from the plants through steam distillation to ensure that the important natural components remain intact. Essential oils have been used medically and therapeutically for thousands of years, with some oils even mentioned in the Bible.

WHY YOUNG LIVING? For more than 20 years, Young Living has produced high quality essential oils leaving the oils in their natural state. Each batch of oils is vigorously tested and is the purest therapeutic-grade oils. Young Living produces their essential oils through the “Seed to Seal” process: seed, cultivate, distill, test and seal. There are more than 120 different oils and blends that never expire. Plus, there is an amazing community of other oil users who love to share their experiences and encourage others to find health in these little bottles.

HOW DO YOU USE ESSENTIAL OILS? There are three ways essential oils are used – inhalation, topically and internally.

INHALATION (breathing them in) • Smelling the oil from the bottle • Diffusing the oil from a diffuser • Putting a drop or two of oil in the bottom of a hot shower

TOPICALLY (using them on the skin) • Placing a few drops of oil on a specific area of the skin. Different oils work best on different parts of the body (feet, wrists, neck, stomach, etc.).

INTERNALLY (ingesting them orally) • Placing a few drops in a capsule to take with water • Adding a drop or two to a glass of water • Adding a drop or two when cooking
