When I received my very first essential oils starter kit I knew nothing about oils. I thought I would use some Lavender and Peppermint to make my homemade DIY recipes smell nice. I didn’t even have a diffuser to smell them. So what did I do? I promptly put the overwhelming box filled with 10 bottles of oil I had never heard of under my bathroom sink in a cabinet and I went along my merry way. I pulled out the Lavender when I made some whipped body butter and called it a good day.
But then something happened. One day, I saw a friend post about how she had used the oils to calm her daughter while in the ER for an asthma episode and I thought hmm…what else can these oils do? I decided to pull out my starter kit box and I committed to LEARN more and to use them and see how I felt. Over the past 3 years I have certainly learned more and I have certainly realized how much these oils can do.
Two of my absolute hands down favorite oils aren’t even available right now for purchase because they are so incredibly popular that Young Living members HOARD them in fear of them not being available at any moment. Young Living would be quite business savvy to find a way to keep these oils available ALL the TIME but they do not – I repeat DO NOT – compromise on quality and effectiveness so they sadly keep these oils off the market while they wait for a completely pure and real source of certain oils in these blends to be found…which is rare for special and precious oils like Rosewood and Blue Tansy. So we wait…ever so patiently for them to be in stock. And in the meantime we ration them.
Which oils are these? Why Valor and Peace & Calming of course. You know – if you signed up with Young Living back in 2013 or 2014 (I think the first half), you got these two precious oils. You own them. So where are they? Are they sitting unopened in your bathroom or bedroom? Still in the box? The box you were too overwhelmed to open and use because you weren’t sure how?
Friends DO NOT let Friends…
You know friends don’t let friends let Valor and Peace & Calming go unused. I am so thankful for VALOR. I am sorry to post about it with it not being available but honestly it has to be the biggest most important oil for me during this pregnancy. I don’t know how or why but all I know is that when this heat is too much for me and my belly hardens like a bowling ball…Valor is what helps it relax. Do you realize what an incredible blessing this is during pregnancy!? I mean you think to yourself…is something bad about to happen?…I need to pound water and lay down stat! All those things help but wow when I apply that Valor to my belly it’s like instant relief and I KNOW all is going to be ok. It gives me the courage to handle this pregnancy with confidence and courage and not live in constant fear and wanting to control G-d and nature by worrying about it all. And as for Peace & Calming – the oil that is sung in praise by moms everywhere for calming crazy kids at all points of the day and night? Yeah I don’t have to say anything more about that one. It speaks for itself!
I am sure Valor II and Peace & Calming II (which is Young Living‘s substitute blend while we all wait ever so patiently for the real thing to come back) is the same as it has a similar frequency on purpose but with minor changes to the blend to make it available to you. I am a true Valor and Peace & Calming hoarder. They are just the absolute best oil blends Young Living has ever made – yes – even better than Thieves in my opinion. Hands down. And to think when I first got my starter kit I didn’t like it. Boy did I have a lot to learn!!!
You might be thinking…why would I ever order again from Young Living when I can buy oils on Amazon or Walmart or even Target? What really is the difference anyway? Well I am here to tell you that THIS is Young Living. Valor and Peace & Calming and every other blend you haven’t tried yet. THIS is what keeps me an active member: These UNIQUE BLENDS you cannot find anywhere else. So if you ever got started with Young Living with me and for some reason – maybe because I am just here in cyberspace and I was never able to come over and show you how to use them and maybe you missed my support group and videos and just plain did not use them – could you do ONE of two things for me please?
- Crack open your Valor and Peace & Calming and use them daily for the next week or so and comment below to let me know what your body told you about them. If you have become an inactive member and want to reactivate you can do that by calling Young Living at 1-800-371-3515 to reactivate for no fee. You will be able to try other emotional blends too! And you can always join my support group again to learn more. Just let me know how I can serve you better.
- Comment below or email me at lindsey at homemade mommy dot net so I can take them off your hands for $50? I mean…they just shouldn’t sit there unused. I personally would use them and can’t live without them. They are my oil crack and I twitch at the thought of being without them so I would be thrilled to pay you for them if you truly do not want them and all of their benefits.
And if you reading this love Valor or Peace & Calming as much as I do…please comment and share all the reasons you love it and how you use it. I am sure the folks reading this who don’t realize what they are missing yet would like to hear it. And there are those who didn’t get Valor in their starter kit and for them there is an option at this exact moment: Valor II. So yeah…go and snag that because it is formulated to be of the same chemical make up even if it doesn’t smell exactly the same it does carry with it the same benefits so it is worth the investment to get some!
