Affordable Wellness for Life

Life is tough, and budgeting can be even harder! Especially when we know how important organic food, products without synthetics, and holistic methods of self care are!

But what if we don't have to give up those values? What if we can use clean products ANd be thrifty at the same time? The fact that Young Living offers me this PLUS a huge convenience in shipping directly to me as often as I like allows me to not only save money but time too. And to me, time is also money! 

I want to make sure you know all about  the YL Wellness Box, loyalty points, and Free Gifts with Purchases.   These customer features have saved me thousands, plus shopping this way keeps me from roaming the aisles of my fave local store grabbing home, beauty, and wellness items on impulse that I don’t even really need or want. I can't be the only one that happens to, right?

And frankly, by selecting what I want to order for my home and wellness needs in advance in an intentional way, it helps me to stay true and committed to myself, which has become really important to me in life. I’m worth planning for, prioritizing, and budgeting for—especially when I’m being savvy! 


Here’s what I do to save a ton of money on home, beauty, and wellness products for my entire household. 

I mostly buy consumable essentials from YL—things like home and body products that I would otherwise be purchasing from a big box store, who doesn’t give me huge points and perks back. 

Points = freeeeeee product. Free as in free, plain and simple. 

Points accumulate FAST through Young Living. Most big box places give 1-5 percent back in points. Young Living first gives 24 percent off on qualifying orders, then an additional 10-25 percent back through Subscribe to Save orders. 

To get mega points back, I build my box on mostly household staples (again, this isn’t spending extra money, it’s just shopping at YL instead of other places). I first add in wellness products, then beauty and nutrition needs next, and essential oils are added in if/when needed.

Two Pro Tips I live by: 

→ Staying committed to my healthy lifestyle through quality products + being in my YL community helps keep me healthy and out of the doctor‘s office! I’ll save the co-pay, thank you very much! 

→ I really try to use what I buy and buy what I use. Again, this helps keep me healthy, but it also helps me to not overspend or impulse buy and to just be resourceful.


Shopping at places with point systems is the best, especially when you get to pick your own full-size freebies. I hate it when a place gives me a dime-sized sample as a “gift.” LOL

Remember, when it comes to YL, the freebies you get to purchase with points are the specific things you already wanted, so this can help your budget out tons. I have friends who’ve saved up their points over a few months and then splurged on an entire KidScents collection or on a complete skin care + makeup collection for themselves. 

So "splurge" on that face cream or get an extra couple bottles of NingXia! You've earned it with your points . . . literally!

This is just an example of an easy guide to your wellness box (Subscribe to Save). Think of these packages as simple swaps that you'll definitely need, to match any budget. If the example is too pricey for your taste/needs, just reduce. 
The numbers aren't exact, but they will get you to each monthly Free Gift with Purchase level (and a little over what you need)!

It's actually really simple to get products added to your Subscribe to Save monthly orders and make changes. 

Are you ready to customize an order for yourself? I’m happy to help! 

Happy shopping!

Be well,
Nicole

Healthy Living
I made it eight years. Except for some allergies here and there and a couple of major bouts of asthma, I didn’t get sick for more than eight years. No flu, no stomach bugs.

And then I planned two major corporate events back-to-back and worked 16-hour days on major stress alert at my last week-long event.  And as soon as I got home, I got the ‘vid. 

Mild ‘vid. 

For only TWO days. PRAISE hands! 🙌🏽

I’m not saying that using essential oils kept me from getting sick for all of those years. But I AM saying that they raised the health of my body and that being intentional about my health with oils, supplements, and lifestyle changes had big returns.

My health story started with a few essential oils when I began making my own non-toxic cleaners, which led me to a beautiful box of pure oils that literally changed the way I do life. And that box led to another good decision and another good decision that brought me to this place. 

I’ve kicked toxins to the curb right and left. I’ve got the right supplements. And I oil up like a mad woman because I know they have the power to change my body for the better. There’s science to prove it.  

Don’t do life like “normal.”  Sister, there‘s a better way to live this life . . . with intention.

Be oily and be well,
