Essential Oils Giveaway Winner and A Free Book

I think I just witnessed the most beautiful giveaway ever.  The comments you amazing women left regarding smells that evoked memories  was intimate and blessed our socks off.  Nearly every comment caused me to pause and relive a similar memory — or just smile at the joy and wonder of the many gifts God gives us.

Everyday oils

While I wish we could bless all of you with the sweet aroma of therapeutic grade essential oils, only one of you won.

How to Get Essential Oils and a FREE $36 Book

But before I tell you who won, I want to remind you that you can still get these essential oils in your hands.  I really want to encourage you to not only bless Amy by signing up under her, but allow her to bless you — she uses essential oils because the Bible lays it out (and not surprisingly, the Bible gave us a really good first aid kit in these essential oils).

Anyone who does become a distributor will receive a Higley Reference Guide for Essential Oils book from me to get  your started and provide a resource to turn to when you have an essential oil question.

Quick Facts for You

  • You don’t have to tell anyone about essential oils.  You can just use them.  People will still smell them on you.
  • You don’t have to become a door to door saleswoman.  In fact, you NEVER have to “sell” the oils.   But be warned, your friends will notice a difference in you and start asking you random questions about your essential oils.  Or if one of your oils might help a certain ailment of theirs.
  • You don’t have to spend $1000 each month.  Or even $1.  It’s up to you.  (I spend $100 every month only because I can earn free products and I have made a business out of Young Living in order to help fund missions.)
  • A Young Living Distributor is like a membership to Costco or Sam’s Club except you can earn free products and you could earn some income.  The downside is that you don’t get to go get a bunch of snacks.  But at least your essential oils are wholesale.

And the Winner Is . . .

The winner of the Everyday Oils kit is ……. Marissa!

You will be contacted by Jodi. Congratulations!

Didn’t win?

You can still win a book, though, when you sign up as a Young Living Distributor.

Long Distance Friends (Dear to My Heart) and A GIVEAWAY!

There are some things I think about daily, like laundry and if the diapers are washed — and dry.

diapers on clothes line

There are some books that never get dusty and are habitually left out, because I am nothing without knowing what my Jesus has to say to me in the morning.

reading the bible

There are some people I pray for regularly.  Like my husband and kiddos.  Or serving overseas as a missionary.

praying for husband

There are some foods I make without asking if anyone wants to eat it, because it is already a hit.  Hello smoothies!

There are some practices that are second nature when my children are hurt or sick, after prayer I anoint my kiddos with healing Biblical essential oils.  I don’t think of calling the doctor.


And there are some people I smile about when I remember them.

raising up godly children

I thank the Lord for them — for how they have impacted my life.   And that person is who brought me here today.  Amy.

How I Met Amy Bayliss

I met Amy over two years ago at a blogging conference.  I had secretly lurked on her blog for quite some time.  I sat behind her in a class, and bashfully met her promptly after it ended.

We hugged and that sealed our friendship.  The only problem?  We live states apart.  Otherwise, I would be over at her house every single day.  Instead, I find her in my house several times a day . . . in the form of laundry detergent and her sweet, gentle southern voice echoing through my mind as I get a grip on my bathroom issues.

Amy and I wash the clothes, diapers, and cloth napkins probably three times a day.  As a result, you better believe she is prayed for.  And now my eldest son has learned to do the laundry.  He even knows Amy.

Homemade laundry detergent is just one of many ways I remember Amy throughout the day.  Her series, 17 Days of Natural Cleaning, rocked my ever-loving household.

Essential Oils Remind Me of God

But truthfully, I want to think about more than Amy — don’t get me wrong, she’s great.  I REALLY  want to to have the mind of Christ.  to contemplate His thoughts daily — know what God would have me do next.

I”m so human, though.

Like Amy’s cleaning products. I use therapeutic grade essential oils to remind me of God, His fragrance in my life.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.  2 Corinthians 2: 14-16

Quick Facts About Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

While I know all the facts about Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils — like that they:

  •  are antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and antiseptic
  • can be ingested — even by my children
  • are safe for pregnant and nursing moms
  • have been known to take away my headaches and migraines
  • helped me get off of all thyroid medication
  • are the life blood of a plant, carrying nutrition into cells and waste products out, and do this very thing in the human body
  • cleanse our body of pharmaceutical drugs and petrochemicals
  • remove toxins and heavy metals
  • flush out the liver
  • and supply our brains with oxygen

What is more important to me is that essential oils are scriptural.  And when I use them their aroma compells me to contemplate my Savior, speak to Him, praise Him, but more importantly remember Him.

Because we remember things in a profound way when they are sealed with an aroma.

Like the cologne my husband used wear back in high school.  We we go to the mall and I walk by a certain store, I am instantly reminded of the night I opened the front door and saw him standing there with a red rose for our blind date.  (These days he wears an essential oil that evokes equally fond memories.  Ahem.)

A Giveaway

Essential oils are an important part of my life (and Amy’s).  They don’t replace God or the necessity of His Holy Spirit working in our lives.  But therapeutic grade essential oils are natural and safe for not only our bodies, but our husbands, children, and friends.  Amy and I could tell you some pretty amazing stories of how God used essential oils in our lives in a big way.

However, we would like for you to create your own memories and stories using therapeutic grade essential oils.

One winner will receive the Everyday Oils, featuring 9 therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living.  The perfect kit to be reminded that God left us a medicine kit in the first garden.

Because Amy probably won’t tell you, I will.  She is a Young Living distributor.  She uses Young Living Oils but purchases them at wholesale.  And many of her natural recipes feature Young Living Oils . . . and those are the oils I use when I make Amy’s cleaning products.  Anyone who signs up as a distributor under Amy with the Everyday Oils kit (during this giveaway)will also receive a Higley Quick Reference Guide to Essential Oils from me!

Curious about being a distributor?  I have you covered.  You can learn about being a Young Living distributor on my essential oils blog, Naturally His.
