Welcome to Sniff & Sniff!

I'm so excited to get started with you today. Congratulations on taking this first step!

Before we delve into all the oily fun in your sample packet, we need to build a foundation first.


With things like cancer, infertility, and other health challenges on the rise, there is no time like the present to kick all those nasty harmful chemicals in your everyday products to the curb. It is time to give your body what it deserves: clean products that support your body rather than make it work harder. 

With clinics on every corner and around 6,000 registered hospitals in the US, we are armed and ready to be sick. But what if we as a society made a shift, and were better at HEALTH care than we are at sick care?

So often we react to issues versus coming at them prepared and ready. Being proactive with our health can be highly beneficial if we’re willing to do the work.

Are you ready to put your health first so you can have more days with your loved ones, your babies, your grand-babies? If you answered yes, then keep reading!


I know that making healthy lifestyle choices isn’t always easy. Do you struggle to order the salad over the burger?

Maybe you struggle with choosing to exercise regularly or maybe it’s hard for you to get solid sleep. Maybe your house is filled with questionable products and you don’t know where to start.

Making these changes does not have to be overwhelming. You can take small steps that add up to big ones. Young Living is here to help you create a wellness LIFESTYLE, starting with the products in your home. Ditching the chemical-filled, hormone disrupting cleaner for a SAFE, plant-based cleaner infused with the best essential oils is a GREAT start. Then maybe you decide to ditch that toxic shampoo and switch it out for one that’s made from ingredients that are truly safe for you. Then maybe you move on to replace your laundry soap and so on. Small changes lead to big results.

With ingredients that actually support a healthy body, Young Living oils and products are absolutely worth the investment. From skin care and makeup to a kid and baby line, pet products, supplements, food, and so much more, YL makes it easy to support everyone's health! You can be assured you are getting the absolute best because Young Living is the ONLY company that provides a Seed to Seal quality commitment unlike anything else; they have control of the ENTIRE process, from the seed to the sealed bottle.


Check out some of the strict guidelines they abide by to fulfill their promise in sending only the best products to your home.

  • plant material that is grown on corporately-owned farms or carefully vetted partner farms (that you CAN visit!)
  • sustainable farming and sourcing practices, providing the purest oil
  • great care taken to preserve and protect natural resources
  • hand-weeded fields and ZERO use of pesticides
  • oils that retain all their natural constituents and therapeutic properties
  • use of food-grade distillers with state-of-the-art design and distillation methods
  • low pressure and low temperature distillation, without the use of solvents or synthetic chemicals
  • rigorous testing on each batch by internal labs and third-party facilities
  • oils that are carefully reviewed through every step of production in order to meet or exceed industry safety and purity standards (beyond organic!)
And the best part… if the oils do not meet these high standards they are rejected and will not be bottled as a Young Living product. Check out more info on their Seed to Seal promise at SeedToSeal.com.


Before we dive into sampling the oils, I want to explain how to use them.

It’s actually simple. Just pick a way and go for it! Anyone can use essential oils - no aromatherapy training needed.

You can apply them to your wrists, neck, back, feet, etc. Just keep them out of your ears and eyes, directly. If you get oil in your eyes, don’t rinse it with water. Instead, apply a fatty carrier oil around the area.

Another thing to keep in mind is that some oils are gentle enough to put directly on your skin without diluting. If you notice it getting hot or making your skin a little red, just throw some carrier oil on (coconut oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, etc.). For kids and elderly people, dilute it more heavily. Don’t overcomplicate it; keep it simple!

Another way to use them is aromatically. Crack open a bottle, and breathe it in. It can be that simple! Add your oils to a diffuser and enjoy the therapeutic benefits from diffusing. Put a drop in your palm, rub your hands together, and cup your hands over your nose. Breathe deeply and enjoy! No matter how you do it you still reap the benefits.

Add a drop (or more) of a Vitality oil into an empty vegetable capsule, a cup of tea, or a glass of water. You can even cook and bake with them! Try some Lemon Vitality in your yogurt or a toothpick tip of Oregano Vitality in your next batch of spaghetti sauce… so delicious! Try adding 4 drops of Peppermint Vitality to a box mix of brownies - talk about yummy!

One thing to note: citrus oils can break down the petrochemicals in plastic so it’s safer to use stainless steel, glass, or ceramic when adding oils to your dishes and drinks.

Now, before we go any further… I want to make sure you know the difference between a Vitality oil (white label) and the “regular” oils (solid-color label). The Vitality oils are labeled for internal/dietary use so they can be ingested. The solid-color bottles are labeled for aromatic/topical use. However, they are the SAME oil. The ONLY difference is the color of the label. It just makes it easier for us to know which oils can be safely ingested. Does that make sense?


Now let's jump into the oils! 
First up...Lavender!

Lavender is probably one of the most well-known essential oils. They call this one the “swiss army knife” of oils because it is extremely versatile and can be used for so many things! 

Being that I am not a doctor and cannot diagnose, treat, or prescribe anything to you, an essential oil reference book comes in handy when getting to know your oils. Be sure to connect with me after you get your oils so I can show you some!

What’s so great about Lavender?
  • It may promote feelings of calm due to its balancing properties that calm the mind and body.
  • It fights occasional nervous tension.
  • It may help cleanse and soothe minor skin irritations.
  • It may help reduce the appearance of blemishes and support aging skin.
  • It can be very soothing to the skin after a day in the sun.
Did you know? Lavender also comes in a Vitality version (same oil, different label). It can improve sleep quality for occasional sleeplessness, supports general wellness, and contains cleansing and antioxidant properties. Lavender Vitality supports the integumentary system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system when taken as a dietary supplement.

Drop some Lavender onto one hand, then use your fingers on the opposite hand to massage the Lavender on the back of your neck. Then rub your hands together, cup them over your nose and mouth (we call this a "scent tent"), and take 5 deep breaths.

Feel more relaxed now? You can always grab Lavender when you need to release some tension. Want to bump it up a bit? Add a little Peppermint and Frankincense to your massage!


Up next is Frankincense!

This oil is like the MAC DADDY of oils! Remember in the Bible how the wise men brought Jesus some Frankincense? Yep… this is it - REAL Frankincense - and it is oh so wonderful.

What’s so great about Frankincense?
  • It promotes the appearance of healthy-looking skin.
  • It may help reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones.
  • It has a sweet, honey-like, and woody fragrance that’s very uplifting.
  • It can create a safe and comforting environment when diffused.
  • It can enhance your spiritual and meditative practice.
  • It is perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness.
Did you know? Frankincense also comes in a Vitality version (same oil, different label). It contains properties that can help support overall well-being and a healthy immune system when taken internally. It also supports the respiratory system and the integumentary system.

Rub Frankincense over the center of your chest. Make a scent tent and take one deep breath. Then say an empowering statement, such as "I am grounded" or "I stand in my power". Continue alternating deep breaths with your affirmation.

Did you feel a shift? Great job!


Now let's look at PanAway.

This oil… ahhhhhhhh. That’s what I say every time I use it. It just makes that (you know what) go away, like the name implies. It has the smell of good ol’ fashioned root beer and feels like heaven when applied. #YouNeedThisOil

What’s so great about PanAway?
  • With Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint essential oils, PanAway has a refreshing, cooling sensation when applied to the skin - shoulders, neck, and scalp.
  • It offers a refreshing, stimulating aroma when inhaled.
  • It includes the naturally occurring constituents methyl salicylate, gamma-curcumene, menthol, and eugenol.
  • It cools the skin after physical activity.
Did you know? PanAway contains Wintergreen, which is high in a constituent called Methyl salicylate. Methyl salicylate is used as the active ingredient in many sports creams, but usually from a synthetic source. Young Living uses the real deal.

Do you have some tired muscles? Maybe it was a long day on your feet? PanAway is a favorite oil for physical relief. Try today applying it to the bottoms of your feet and calves. It also works great on your shoulders and the back of your neck. Don't forget your deep breaths!

You said "ahhhhhhh," didn't you? Glad you enjoyed it.


Let's continue with Raven.

“If I just breathe… everything is alright if I just breathe.” Remember that song? Well this oil will make you do just that - breathe and breathe well. Raven is a cool, refreshing combination of Ravintsara, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, and Wintergreen essential oils.

What’s so great about Raven?
  • It creates a cooling sensation and provides a comforting aroma when applied topically to the chest and throat
  • It provides a refreshing aromatic experience when diffused or inhaled directly.
  • It may be used as part of your exercise routine to help promote the sensation of deeper breathing.
  • It may give you that boost of energy and motivation you need to conquer the day!
Did you know? Ravintsara (the main ingredient in Raven) is commonly known as camphor, which is a well-known respiratory support herb. You may have heard of it!

Apply a few drops of Raven to your throat and chest. Make a scent tent and take those deep breaths. Can you feel your lungs saying THANK YOU? 

Raven is also great in the shower. Drop a few drops on the shower floor outside of the stream of water. It will invigorate you as you shower!


It's time for Valor!

Valor was formulated based on historical writings about Roman soldiers who were said to apply plant extracts and botanicals to instill feelings of courage and confidence before going into battle. It contains Blue Tansy, an oil that specifically helps to calm the Central Nervous System.

What’s so great about Valor?
  • It is a unique blend of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Camphor Wood, Geranium, and Frankincense - a true member favorite.
  • It encourages a positive attitude and promotes feelings of courage and confidence.
  • It has a great woodsy, grounding aroma that is great for massages and perfect for wearing as a personal fragrance.
  • It helps freshen the air when diffused and creates an uplifting, positive environment.
  • It may also enhance the appearance of healthy-looking skin when applied topically.
Did you know? Valor is the first oil in the “Great Day Protocol” lineup, created by the late Young Living founder, D. Gary Young. You should google it - it’s pretty amazing!

Place a drop of Valor between your wrists (palm side), then hold them together for a few minutes. Take some deep breaths and give yourself permission to be at peace. Feel that?

If you're taking time to relax, meditate, or work on your spiritual and emotional health, you can keep holding your wrists together while you're sitting quietly. Grab your Valor any time you're feeling scattered or worried instead of grounded and at peace.


Okay, grab that Peace & Calming!

The name says it all with this blend. It’s my go-to oil when things get crazy and we need a little CALM to come over us… which is pretty much all the time!

You can wear this one on diffuser jewelry, on your neck or wrists, or pop some in the diffuser. You can even get a little creative with it and add a drop or two some homemade playdough for the kids!

What’s so great about Peace & Calming?
  • It’s a gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy and is one of Young Living’s most popular blends.
  • Tangerine and Orange contain some of the highest naturally occurring levels of the constituent limonene.
  • It has a comforting, fresh aroma.
  • It helps freshen the air when diffused.
  • It offers a peaceful environment for yoga and meditation.
  • It can provide a relaxing environment for yourself, your kids, or your pets.
Did you know? Peace & Calming contains blue tansy, an oil that specifically helps to calm the Central Nervous System. It's also in Valor, which one of the main reasons both of these blends are such popular oils!

Note: Since Peace & Calming contains citrus oil it’s considered a photosensitive blend. That just means you don’t want to apply it to your skin if you plan to be in direct UV rays for the next 12 hours. Either apply it where the sun doesn’t shine OR just make sure clothing covers the area you apply it to.

Let's do a pro move for this one...Rub Peace & Calming on your stomach! Then make a scent tent and enjoy some deep breaths while you inhale this oil.

This works so well when you're feeling out of control and out of your depth. You can even recite a mantra along with your deep breathing. Try "I am content".

Nice, isn't it?


We're halfway through, so let's keep going! Grab that Stress Away!

Stress Away is ANOTHER member favorite because it does just what its name suggests. It’s one you will never want to run out of. You might want to add it to your Loyalty Rewards order just to be safe.

What’s so great about Stress Away?
  • This blend contains a unique combination of Lime essential oil and vanilla extract, giving it a “beach in a bottle” type of aroma.
  • It also contains a mix of Copaiba, Cedarwood, Ocotea, and Lavender - such an incredible blend of well-rounded oils.
  • It promotes relaxation and a calming environment.
  • It has an inviting aroma that helps calm the mind.
  • It can relieve occasional stress and tension.
Take the roller fitment top from your starter kit and replace the plastic orifice reducer in the Stress Away bottle. Now you can roll it right on! Keep it in your purse, car, office, diaper bag, or anywhere else you find yourself needing a little happy.

Did you know? Stress Away is unique because it's the only Young Living blend that includes Vanilla. Besides it's delicious aroma, Vanilla also supports a calm, serene environment, helps elevate mood and stimulate joyful memories, and may help relieve nervous tension.

Note: Since Stress Away contains citrus oil it’s considered a photosensitive blend. That just means you don’t want to apply it to your skin if you plan to be in direct UV rays for the next 12 hours. Either apply it where the sun doesn’t shine ;) OR just make sure clothing covers the area you apply it to.

By now, you're an old pro at using oils. So let's apply Stress Away to your wrists, temples AND behind your ears. Make your scent tent, breathe deeply and use this time to fuel your happy and positive day ahead.

It's truly a vacation in a bottle!


So far we have talked about some popular topical and aromatic oils. Now we are going to talk about a few oils that are labeled for ingestion… also known as Vitality oils. 

First up - Lemon Vitality. 

This oil can add such a bright and dynamic flavor to your dishes with just ONE drop! Use it to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes; it’s so versatile! You can substitute it for lemon zest or juice and still pack a punch. Try it!

We also love to add it to our drinks - water, teas, smoothies, juices, homemade popsicles, etc. It’s so tasty! Be sure to use a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel container; citrus oils can eat away at the petrochemicals in plastic and you don’t want to accidentally ingest plastic. Yuck!

You could also grab some empty veggie capsules from Young Living and add a few drops to take as a dietary supplement. Like I said, so versatile!

What’s so great about Lemon Vitality?
  • It has antioxidant properties.
  • It supports the immune system.
  • It provides circulatory support.
  • It contains cleansing properties.
Did you know? Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rind of the fruit so it doesn't contain the high acid content that the inside of the fruit does. Therefore, it’s not hard on your tooth enamel. #WinWin

One more thing, this one comes in a solid-label bottle too. That means it can be diffused or applied topically as well. Remember - same oil, different label.

Here are two options, one for a hot drink and one for cold. Or you can double up and try both!

Hot drink: Drizzle some honey into a mug, then stir in one drop of Lemon Vitality. Fill with hot water. Add a tea bag and steep if you like, or just enjoy as lemon honey wellness tea.

Cold drink: Add one drop of Lemon Vitality to a tall glass of cold water for a fresh, antioxidant-infused drink to boost your day. 


Ready for Peppermint Vitality? Let's do it!

Crisp and cool like a breath of fresh air...that is Peppermint. This oil is incredibly versatile andone that we always want to have on hand. Plus it makes a delicious addition to our favorite cooking and baking recipes!

What’s so great about Peppermint Vitality?
  • It supports gastrointestinal system comfort.
  • It enhances healthy gut function.
  • It maintains efficiency of the digestive tract.
  • It may support performance during exercise.
  • It reduces feelings of discomfort after large meals.
  • It provides a refreshing, minty flavor to food and beverages.
How awesome is that? Peppermint is SO much more than a flavor - when you get the real deal. Just like other Vitality oils you can add this one to food like brownies, cakes, cookies, candies, fruit dishes, etc. You can also add it to drinks like water, tea, or protein shakes. You can also take a few drops in a veggie capsule as a dietary supplement - whatever works for you!

Again, this one also comes in a solid-label bottle too. That means it can be diffused or applied topically as well.

Put one drop of Peppermint Vitality into your non-dominant hand. Swirl the oil around with your dominant thumb, then press it to the roof of your mouth. Hold for a few seconds,

Feel that opening and soothing your sinuses? It's wonderful. 

To deepen the effect, rub your hands together, then make a scent tent and inhale. You can see how strong and effective Peppermint is! Make sure you don't touch your eyes or any sensitive areas with it. In fact, this is a good time to wash your hands so you don't forget.


Let's dive into DiGize Vitality!

This oil is a powerhouse for the digestive system. Seriously - it works in seconds flat (at least for me it does). 

DiGize Vitality is a blend of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli essential oils. Put your googling fingers to work and do a little research to find out how amazing those oils are for your body! You’ll be amazed. You can take this oil internally with a veggie capsule (personal favorite), in food or drink, or directly under your tongue.

What’s so great about DiGize Vitality?
  • It helps support and cleanse the digestive system.
  • It’s a great companion to Young Living’s enzyme supplements when taken with meals to support your wellness regimen.
  • It includes antioxidant properties.
One more thing, this one comes in a solid-label bottle too. That means it can be diffused or applied topically as well. Remember - same oil, different label. While it's not everyone's favorite scent or flavor, it's often their favorite instant result when used after meals!

Did you know? DiGize contains Fennel, which has been used since the ancient Egyptians for aiding digestion and elimination.

Feeling adventurous? Let's try DiGize Vitality in a spoonful of honey. This works well after a meal, as it's a little sweet treat with your digestive support. 

DiGize also works well rubbed on the tummy after a meal. Personally, I think it smells like black licorice. If you don't like that, layer Lemon and Peppermint on top of the DiGize. It's extra support and it smells better!


You're gonna love this next one...Citrus Fresh Vitality!

This oil is such a refreshing gem! It’s a mix of Orange, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Tangerine, Lemon, and Spearmint essential oils and can be added to food, drinks, or taken internally with a veggie capsule. 

Add a punch of flavor and pizazz to chicken, salmon, and gourmet salads. You can use it to keep yourself motivated and hydrated by adding a drop or two to your water. This one also tastes amazing when added to NingXia Red (a red antioxidant drink), which we talk about soon! Don’t forget to use glass, ceramic, or stainless steel containers as citrus oils can eat away at the petrochemicals in plastic.

What’s so great about Citrus Fresh Vitality?
  • It has an invigorating citrus flavor.
  • It contains antioxidant properties.
  • It supports overall wellness.
  • It has cleansing properties.
  • It includes the naturally occurring constituents limonene and carvone.
One more thing, this one comes in a solid-label bottle too. That means it can be diffused or applied topically as well. Remember - same oil, different label. It’s one of my favorites to diffuse and add to my Thieves Household Cleaner for an incredible burst of happy citrus oils! #MoodBooster

Did you know? Citrus Fresh Vitality contains antioxidants and provide cleansing properties when taken internally. It can also support healthy weight management, when used with healthy diet and exercise.

This is another one we have to do in our water! Just a drop or two of Citrus Fresh Vitality infuses your water with a burst of flavor. It's like Lemon Vitality, but a little sweeter. 

If you drink smoothies or juices, try it there too. Yum!


Now for one final oil. I saved the best for last - Thieves! 

There’s even an entire line of products that contain this powerful combination of oils; it’s THAT good. Thieves Vitality is a sweet and spicy combination of Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary, and Lemon essential oils.

Did you know? The name ‘Thieves’ was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, vinegar, and other botanicals that they believed provided protection while they were stealing. The story goes on to say that when the thieves were caught they were offered a lesser punishment if they would divulge to the king the secret to their immunity, despite being exposed to a highly infectious, deadly disease. Pretty interesting, huh?

What’s so great about Thieves Vitality?
  • It provides immune system support.
  • It’s cleansing to the digestive system.
  • It contains antioxidant properties.
  • It provides general wellness support.
Again, because it’s a Vitality oil, it can be added to food or drinks, taken in a veggie capsule, or placed directly under the tongue. Some people enjoy it added to oatmeal, parfaits, coffees, desserts, honey, or NingXia Red. Try a few things and get creative; the possibilities are endless!

One more thing, this one comes in a solid-label bottle too. That means it can be diffused or applied topically as well. Remember - same oil, different label. I love diffusing it with a little citrus oil like Lemon or Orange for a boost of aroma.

Add a drop of Thieves Vitality to your coffee grounds before brewing. Don't drink coffee? Drop a drop onto your tea bag before steeping. 

Enjoy that immune boost!


So far we’ve talked only about essential oils, but those are just PART of your wellness toolbox. You need supplements and household products as well so we are going to talk about a few before we wrap up. 

First up - one of the most popular YL supplements - NingXia Red.

Ningxia Red is a whole-body supplement. It’s a blend of the Ningxia Wolfberry (also known as goji berries, a superfruit) along with plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate juices and extracts plus pure vanilla extract and Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils. 

It also has an incredibly high antioxidant rating. Antioxidants make for an unfriendly environment for free radicals. If you don't know the effects free radicals have on your body, go look it up. You need NingXia in your life!

What’s so great about NingXia Red?
  • It supports whole-body wellness.
  • It supports normal cellular function.
  • It supports normal energy levels & eye health.
  • It’s rich in antioxidants & d-limonene.
Did you know? NingXia Red has an amazing low glycemic index of 11 that does not spike blood sugar.

You can add it to smoothies, juices, drink it straight, or even make fun things like popsicles and gummies with it. It’s recommended that you consume 1-2 ounces a day and it’s best served chilled. I love adding my own Vitality oils as well for a custom flavor! Bottoms up!

This one's easy. Open the packet and drink it! If you prefer it chilled, put it in the fridge. But don't forget to grab it tomorrow! You don't want to miss out on this one.


Last up is the Thieves Spray and Thieves Hand Sanitizer, both of which are amazing! Let’s find out why.

Thieves Hand Sanitizer
  • Kills 99.9% of germs and eliminates common, harmful bacteria
  • Formulated with powerful essential oils and plant-based ingredients
  • Lightly moisturizes with aloe vera and vegetable glycerin
  • Perfect for on-the-go
