Another word you can use for the monthly Essential Rewards package is "Monthly Wellness Box". It's the box that you get to design yourself depending on what your needs and your family needs are in any particular month. You change, delete, and add products, and then Young Living will process it on the day you choose for them to do so, then promptly ship it right to your door, arriving within a week. **By the way, their YLGo program is the prepay shipping program they have now that will save you money AND get your wellness box shipped to you even quicker. You can decide if you want the "Basic" or the "Plus", depending on how many orders you think you will be placing each month. Personally, I go with the Basic, but many love the Plus program; so you decide what is best for you, after you read the benefits of both.


So.... on with how you get to enjoy the Essential Rewards autoship program without falling out of your family's "monthly budget", which is always wise to have, of course. 


1. See what your WEEKLY household income is, depending on how many weeks are in that particular month. Some months have 4 weeks, and some have 5, so if you get paid weekly, you will get an extra paycheck four months out of the year. 

***If you get paid once a month, then divide it by 4 or 5 (depending on the weeks). 


2. Decide what is 10% of that. For example, if you get $1,000 a week, then 10% of that would be $100 per week.


3. Set that 10% aside immediately into another "savings" account so that you don't get tempted to spend it on other things.


4. Add up the money you saved and that is how much you get to spend that month on your wellness box! Don't worry about the pricing.... just know you have that much to spend and don't go under or over (at least not by much - stay within that amount as much as possible)


That's it!! Whatever you get is something you don't need to get elsewhere, so that can easily be saving you money you used to spend in other places, and you simplified your life by adding it to your Young Living monthly wellness package, having Young Living ship it to directly to your door. You stay more orgazized too since you have to start noticing what things you will need in your home that month - what oils, what supplements, what personal care products, what household cleaning produts, etc. You will thank me later once you see how AMAZING it is to be on this program.

You get rewarded for simplifying your life, learning to budget your money, and helping others do the same thing so that they can also simplify their life as they enhance their lifestyle. 



I want to be very clear about the fact that it's ALL ABOUT A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE; Young Living just simplifies our TRANSITION INTO this lifestyle as we purchase one of their great-valued Premium Starter Kits and commit to their Essential Rewards Program as a sign of commitment to switching over to this brand since it's one we can fully trust.


God brings healing into our life as we trash old habits that a not serving us well, and REPLACE THEM with healthy lifestyle habits, committing to live by them for a lifetime. Hence the reason God gave me the wisdom to write up the 10 healthy lifestyle habit list which I enjoy sharing with others whenever I get the opportunity. 


I know it's not easy to get rid of old habits, old patterns of thinking, but it's absolutely necessary if we want to be healthy and fit in every area of our life - physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and yes, even financially. When we stop purchasing products that are hurting us in the long run, and we start spending our money on products that enhance and support our health, eventually we end up spending a lot less money. We also will not need to waste so much time in doctor offices, hospitals and ERs.


High premium health insurance may appear to save us monery, but in reality they are not because we end up not caring how we live since we can just go to the dotor anytime we want, and that's not good! This not truly taking care of our health. In order to properly care for our health, we must trash old habits, replace them with new ones that enhance our health, and commit to living by these habits for a lifetime. Our famiy does have heath insurance, but we call it "emergency insurance" just in case we end up in the hospital because of an accident we have, of which none of us our immune. Hospital visits are expensive!!! Our insurance premium is merely $2 a month (the government pays the rest, from the taxes we all have to pay, of course - it's something like $950 for my husband and I, but that's another story)


Since it's easy to slip back into old habits, I highly recommend building or surrounding yourself with a supportive community. Meet up regularly with a group of people that supports you along your journey, or have a support group online if that is more convenient and helpful to you. This group must be one where all of you feel a sense of ease; a place where you can share your joys, tears, frustrations, and temptations, and nobody passes any judgement. Instead, you will get inspiration from stories of people that have been on this journey longer than you have been. Follow that wise advice and don't be stubborn thinking you already know how to live.  


So remember, it's all about living a healthy lifestyle; getting invloved with Young Living is simply a way to simplify our transition into this lifestyle. Commit to their Essential Rewards Program right away as a commitment to switch over to this brand of prodcuts, which you will soon be able to see why you can trust full. Above all, commit fully to applying the 10 healthy lifestyle habits. If you don't know what they are, follow this link to get to them: 

God will bring healing into your life as you leave behind old habits and patterns of living and reaplace them with habits that enhance your health physically, mentally, and emotionally.





Here are some easy tips that you can incorporate into your daily life to cope with everyday stresses and thrive in life, no matter how busy your day may be.


Tip #1 Fuel your body first thing in the morning 
You can’t get your car going, even if it's a Mercedes Benz, if you don’t have fuel in it. In the same manner, we need to also start out your day with some great supplements. I suggest you do the following: Drink 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red (mixed with 4 ounces water). Also, get your omega-3s with either a tablespoon of MindWise or 2-4 Omegagize capsules. Bonus thriving tip: add a teaspoon of Sulfurzyme to your NingXia Red

Tip #2 Fuel up throughout the day.

Life gets busy, but we need to make sure our body is boosted every few hours so that we have the energy to keep going. Take a tube of Nitro with you and drink it mid-afternoon, when you feel that slump. Simply put it in your water bottle, add a couple of drops of Lime (for extra yumminess) and fill with 6-8 oz water and some ice. Shake up and enjoy. It's a better boost than a chocolate bar or a cup of Starbucks coffee!

Tip #3 Use or Diffuse your favorite scents daily

Peppermint is invigorating. Lemon brings out a freshness in the air and helps us concentrate. Orange is very relaxing, as is Peace and Calming. The scent of Joy reminds us to be joyful no matter what is going on around us; valor reminds us to be courageous when we are feeling fearful (a synonym of valor is courage). Think about how you are feeling and use or diffuse an oil for that particular occasion, no matter where you may be. You will find your favorites the longer you are with Young Living!

Tip #4 Take Thieves Waterless hand purifier wherever you go.
You never know when you will need to clean up your hands! Easier to put a bit of this purifier on your hands then stand in line to wash your hands in a public restroom.

Tip #5 Get all your personal use and cleaning products from Young Living

It’s so much simpler to order our daily use products on the Essential Rewards than it is going to store and purchasing them, always making sure that we get products that will enhance our health. Okay…. sometimes Young Living runs out of some of the products because they’re so popular and we are growing so quickly, I get it, but …. as much as we can, let’s swap out our personal use and cleaning things and add them to our Essential Rewards monthly package. They have so many different categories now…. Even a make up one now! (Savvy Minerals) And if you have a new baby or toddler… They have a whole baby line of products as well. **Bonus tip: don’t wait until you’re completely out to order a new bottle of something; look into ordering as soon as you are half way down the current bottle. It will save you some grief (in case YL is out of stock later)

Tip #6 Take a few of your favorite oils with you everywhere you go

You never know when you may need one! Some I recommend you consider taking with you would be either Lavender or Frankincense, Peppermint, and Thieves. If there is an emotional oil you love smelling throughout the day…. like Valor, Joy or Stress Away…. definitely take that one with you and apply a drop or two on the back of your neck at any time.

This is what I like doing with it: I squirt out the liquid in the tube into a refillable water bottle, add water, ice and 2-3 drops of Lime (Vitality) essential oil, and shake it up. Excellent energy booster without any jitters! Guilt free too since it's extremely low in sugar.

In 2007 God asked me to invest money and time in Young Living; it’s been a decision I’ve never regretted. At first I was very apprehensive in investing even $50 monthly on their autoship program; now, I invest no less than 300 a month because I see how all of their products truly enhance my life and my home. I love investing time daily in sharing about this company - their products and opportunity- because I know it could change the life of anyone who takes the chance  of investing in this company 😎😍
