Light and Incense
The slightly musky and woodsy aroma of this blend helps support feelings of spirituality and peace.
The Sandalwood overtones of this rich blend create an uplifting and relaxing fragrance that deepens a sense of togetherness.
This blend’s aroma is reminiscent of a crisp winter forest with a scent that helps support meditation and encourages feelings of creativity.
Relax at the Hearth
Enjoy this light, calming, and relaxing fragrance while bundled up with a cup of hot cocoa in front of your fireplace.
I just love winter for using my oils like so many people do. One of the best ways to promote my essential oil business to friends and family without seeming pushy or sales-y is to give them gifts made with essential oils. I love to give homemade gifts so everyone on my gift list receives something with oils. I encourage you to do the same. Not only can you personalize them but also they are meaningful because the recipient knows you spent time and put a lot of thought into your gifts. Oh, and my Christmas cards? You guessed it; they will always smell like Christmas Spirit. It’s a great conversation starter and always memorable.

Are you ready for some busy but really fun and excited months of business building and oil loving? I sure hope so. During December of course there is a lot of gift giving and buying going on. If you are a DIYer that sells your homemade goodness, now is your time my friend. This is bonus time for you because you have the ability to promote your homemade gifts while simultaneously promoting your oil business. I highly encourage you to attend local vendor markets if this speaks to you. If not, no worries, you still have a busy month ahead. I generally find the gift giving classes are popular at the beginning of the month and towards the middle and end is the time to once again visit the oils from a biblical standpoint by hosting a Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture class.
After the rush of the holidays and the New Year many people will be making resolutions. To start the year you might try hosting a resolutions class on how oils can support motivation, focus and achieving goals. Teaching this class will also help you with your goals for the year. Since many people set a weight related resolution a vitality workshop focusing on the Slique product line to support weight management will be a popular class. It’s a great time to also promote and talk about the benefits of the Ningxia Red line.
The advent of the New Year is traditionally a time to evaluate where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to be. Goal setting is a powerful process for envisioning what you’d like to accomplish and motivating yourself to make that vision a reality.
- Specific—Goals should answer specific questions of who, what, where, when, and why.
- Measurable—Goals should be quantifiable so you can track your progress.
- Attainable—You should be able to evaluate whether your goals are realistic.
- Relevant—Goals should be relevant to your life at this time.
- Time Related—Goals should have a deadline to keep you on track and focused.
For example, instead of “I want to get in better shape,” try a specific, SMART goal, such as “I want to exercise after work, five days a week, for the next three months.”
Whatever your goals are, you can use Young Living essential oils to help you define your goals, remove emotional blockages, and solidify your resolve to achieve them.
Then comes February the romance month. During this month, host a “sensations” class focusing on essential oils for couples. The Lucy Libido book definitely will help you learn and teach about oils for this class. Good make-n-take items include massage oil and/or lotion, diffuser and roller recipes, and even bubble bath or salts.
I like to have unique Valentine’s Day items for my kids to pass out during their party, especially since many schools are banning food and candy. Make little containers of slime with heart confetti, play dough or diffuser beads. Another idea I love it to make lip balm with a note attached saying, “You’re the balm!”
Have you thought about partnering with other businesses to host an event? This can be very successful. Talk to local yoga studios, health food stores, chiropractors, day spas, massage studios and so on about having an event together or hosting a class for them. Be creative and be sure that you are offering something to them that is beneficial to their business as well.
During December I try to really promote my DIYs on the blog with stuff that is easy to make as gifts for people. Like previous months I like hosting online classes that correspond with in-person classes. I also watch the threads on social media about when people ask about a good gift for mom, or grandma, etc. It is a wonderful way to link a blog item that would work, post a DIY recipe and reach out to them if you sell these items as well.
January of course will be a great month for Slique sales as well as some of the single oil vitality blends. I also like some of the other amazing blends Young Living offers like Transformation, Motivation and Into the Future for supporting resolutions and goals. These are great blends along with Abundance to diffuse and use during times you are goal setting and working on business related activities including team-building events. An online vitality class would be a great January class as well as a resolutions and goal setting highlighting many oils that can support that. The slides are pretty easy to put together. I usually use one of Young Living’s promotional images about the oil I am highlighting and then discuss the oil in the description. I generally also put a link to my blog with practical way to use the oil if I have one that fits in well. All of the classes I am also sure to put a disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot diagnose or treat anyone and ask that specific ailments be looked up in a reference guide or through a reference app. I strongly encourage all members to have a reference whether in print or virtual and help them learn to use it.

Doing this encourages current members to try new oils and potential members to see not only the breadth of oils offered but also the depth of their uses.
I lead by example, and I speak my mind. What I say today will be the same today, tomorrow, and the next day. I don’t like politics or games, so people around me always know where I stand. I like to see people achieve what they are capable of, and I strive to make other people feel like they are the best at what they do. ~Mary Young
