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 diffuser of your choice (my favorite is the Aria!) 11 amazing oils for every use you can imagine and many other fantastic samples and education. I loved receiving mine! The full details are shown when you are in the checkout process so you can review. I highly recommend adding on Cedarwood!

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!  This is one of the reasons I love them. Let’s take a look at lavender, for instance.  Because of its many unique compounds and different properties, there are a vast variety of applications including:

+ Supportive to Skin
+ Soothing, relaxing aroma
+ Calming before bed
+It’s fresh, floral scent can help eliminate odors from the air

…and the list goes on, since that is just the TIP of the iceberg!  Since essential oils are all chemically diverse, each one can perform several different functions. 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.
You’ll get plenty of reading materials in your kit, but there are literally hundreds of ways to use your oils, which we’ll begin to dive into on our blog.  But for now a short list.  You can diffuse them (you get a diffuser in your starter kit!) which is great for making your house smell great, relaxing for bed, neutralizing unwanted odors in the house, energizing you during your work day, etc.  You can also apply the oils topically to help support your health, skin, and spirit and create rollerball combinations, creams, scrubs and sprays.  Lastly, you can add them to your bath for the most calming soak ever, your laundry for freshness, and down drains or any other place in your home that could use a little freshening.

It’s pretty amazing how essential oils can be used in almost every part of everyday life. Some of our favorite ways to use essential oils include: nontoxic cleaning solutions that are pet-safe, immunity and wellness support, diffusing and spraying them throughout our homes for a little freshening up or winding down, and through the Vitality line you can use them in all of your favorite recipes!

Vitality v. Regular — what is the difference between the two?
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.

Is it safe to use essential oils while pregnant or nursing? Yes, however — It is strongly recommended that, prior to use of essential oils, you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained health care adviser who is experienced in EO usage. We also recommend letting your midwife know 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.
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? 
No way! There is no pressure to sell — ever! And it's not a scheme.. it's truly a beautiful community to be a part of, everyone brings one another up, if we need help, you have a whole team of women by your side and cheering you on! I was a skeptic turned believer too
