What company do you sell essential oils with? 
Young Living! They are the only company that offers the Seed to Seal promise because they own their own farms.

What comes in the premium starter kit? 
A premium starter kit comes with 11 of the most commonly used oils + your diffuser (I recommend the aria). its legit the best value & provides you with everything you need to get started. You’ll get over $300 worth of product for only $160. not to mention your membership which scores you 24% off retail pricing on all of young living's products (including savvy minerals makeup!)

I got my starter kit, now what?
Head over to our  community Facebook group exclusively for our members where there are videos and posts filled with all of the info you'll need for your oils journey!  When you join Young Living through our team, we don’t leave you hanging or wondering what to do next. We’re available for questions anytime! We’re not oil experts (yet), but we do have several reference guides, books, and an amazing team that help us on our journey.  By registering through Grits & Grace you become a part of this amazing team! You will get access to private Facebook groups that is a wealth of information. You can search the archives, ask questions, get tips on how to use your oils, etc.  We will also add you to a couple of other private discussion groups on Facebook that we are a part that are more specialized. Our team is BIG on education.  The last thing we want you to do is spend $150 on something you don’t know a thing about and have to learn about all on your own. We do everything we can to make sure you have everything you need to get the best use of your oils!

How do I use my essential oils? There are three common ways oils are used: aromatically (inhaling or diffusing), topically (applying to the skin) and internally (ingesting them). We will provide you with guides, resources and all the information you want and need for how to use your oils. Plus, each bottle of Young Living essential oil is labelled with directions for how that oil can be used. The first thing you should know is that essential oils are incredibly multipurpose!  

Since essential oils are all chemically diverse, each one is multi-FUNCTIONAL. If you are not yet familiar with using essential oils, one of the best ways to experience their power is by using them to support your body’s wellness.

we use our oils For just about everything!! Whether you are looking for oils to help you sleep, for natural immune support, for energy, for focus, for relaxation, for your little ones, for natural alternatives to cleaning products, the list + POSSIBILITIES are  endless, there is an oil for that!! And you will learn along the way, there aren’t hard set rules, but part of joining our oils team is that you get access to the most amazing resources & our private facebook community.

Vitality v. Regular — what is the difference between the two?
THE VITALITY LINE IS OUR SUPPLEMENT LINE. The white label Vitality line contains the exact same oil as their color label counterpart. They are simply labeled as Vitality so that you know it is safe for ingestion, if you choose.

are oils safe to use essential oils while pregnant or nursing? Yes, however — we strongly recommended that, prior to use of essential oils, you reach out to your family doctor or a trained health care PROVIDER who is experienced in essential oil usage. We also recommend informing your midwife that you are using essential oils while pregnant, so they are aware and can help you if needed. It is generally recommended to avoid overuse of Clary Sage, Hyssop, Idaho Tansy, Sage, Fennel, and Wintergreen as well as the blends and supplements that contain these oils during pregnancy. you can find a complete list here.

Most essential oils can be used safely during pregnancy and nursing and are a wonderful and natural way to balance the mood and support the body during this special time.

Can I use essential oils on my little ones? 
Yes! Essential oils are such a wonderful tool for little ones, that’s how we got starter ourselves! Many essential oils are appropriate for use on children but should be diluted with a carrier oil prior to use. Young Living even has and entire line of oils that come prediluted with carrier oil and are intended for direct application on children (because easier wins!). We teach all the mamas on our team how to safely and confidently use oils with their babies & children.

Do I have to sell? 
Nope! Your kit can be a one time purchase, but along with it comes a wholesale membership, which just means that should you decide to purchase oils in the future, you would get a 24% discount! You will also get a personal referral link should you ever decide that you want to share them, but neither is required.

how do I sign up? To enroll with our team, JOIN HERE and make sure the number 1714808 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields. Sign up as a WHOLESALE Member. this does not mean you have to sell oils, it just means you are getting a premium starter kit & will therefore get 24% off retail prices.
