Connections: Young Living Essential Oils Janice Cassola

Essential OilsFamily life is busy and as a parent, I always try to maintain the health and balance of my husband, children and myself. In so doing, I am constantly on the lookout for ways to make our lives healthier, easier and better. I don’t have the time or the energy to get involved in high maintenance, time-consuming, or complex things. I need solutions that fit into my back pocket that I can pull out easily and quickly. I need that magic silver bullet.

Well, I have to say, we have a WINNER – a tool kit for your home that reduces stress and anxiety, promotes sleep, clears acne, eases sore throats, boosts immunity, helps in weight-loss, aids digestion, relieves pain, and lifts spirits. Imagine being able to do all of this naturally, without chemicals or additives.

The Young Living products do all of these things and so much more and a member of our community, Janice Cassola, is a distributor. Admittedly, she is my sister-in-law, but she is a fabulous person, and a great resource for getting these wonderful products, learning how easy it is to use them, and connecting with others if you want to delve more deeply into their many uses.

Everyday Oils Kit

To start, there is what I call the 9 – 10 pack that is so easy to use. There are 9 essential oils in this pack and a 10-page booklet. I can handle 9 – 10. It fits into my back pocket. (Well, the 10-page booklet does anyway.)

There are actually 110 uses for this set of 9 oils. That’s a little crazy. Yet, this little booklet is so easy to use! The uses are listed by oil and then by concern. You can look under lavender, for example, and see the 22 uses, but if you have a specific problem, like a rash, you can look for that and find the one-line solution. Yes, one line. That DEFINITELY fits into the back pocket. So, when a family member complains of a stomachache, blisters, cold or sore throat, headache, insect bite, stiff neck, having trouble concentrating, bruising, allergies or stress, you can reach for your pack of oils and help them right away.

The essential oils in this kit include 4 single oils: lavender, peppermint, frankincense, lemon and 5 blends known as: peace & calming, purification, panaway, valor and thieves.

I think every family should have one of these packs at the ready.

NingXia Red, Thieves & Others

There are more products, however, that are also impressive. There is a smoothie-type drink called NingXia Red that is yummy and filled with wolfberry, super fruits and essential oils to boost immunity, improve sleep, reduce pain and inflammation, among many others.

There is the Thieves product line that is a series of antibacterial products for you and your home. The impressive aspect of these products is that they are all natural. They will not destroy your immune system, but boost it.

There is a Slique weight loss system involving oils, supplements and teas that support your brain (by reducing cravings), your gut (by increasing metabolism) and tongue (by promoting satisfaction).

Lastly, there is also a line of nutritional supplements and a personal care line that include skin care, hair care and soaps.

So, there are many, many powerful products and to go further, there are also 3 collections that I want to mention.

The KidScents ® Collection

This kit involves 6 mild oil blends that have really cute names: GeneYus™, Bite Buster™, SniffleEase™, Owie™, TummyGize™ and SleepyIze™.   These oils help children concentrate and stay on task, lift the senses, and relax the mind and body. As their names suggest, these oils also help with colds, tummy aches and insect bites.

The oils are applied topically or diffused into the air, so are safe and effective for children.

The Reconnect Collection

Okay, ladies, as I am entering menopause, I TOTALLY want this collection! This 5 -blend collection helps concentration and focus, uplifts the mood, improves sleep, and encourages positive energy during times of restlessness and unease.   Yup, I definitely could use this set!

Animal Scents – Care Kit

For all of you pet owners, here is a set just for you. These oils, ointment, shampoo and spray products help with the most common conditions of animals. They help keep your pet clean, repel insects and ticks, prevent infections, promote digestion and even help with the emotional wellbeing of your pet.


Don’t take my word for it. Here is what people are saying:

“We use Young Living Essential Oils everyday in our house.  We turned our medicine cabinet from a typical over the counter cabinet to a plant based therapeutic oasis!  This time of year, we use our Thieves Oil every day to boost our immunity and knock out any cold and bugs that my son may pick up at school or activities.  It gives us a piece of mind to know we are doing everything we can to keep him healthy, naturally.” ~ Maria N.

“Before we started using our Young Living oils, my husband was constantly going to the doctor to relieve the pain, loss of sleep and immobility due to a severe finger injury. He needed cortisone injections and painkillers. We started using the oils, Pan Away, Valor and Peppermint mixed into coconut oil to create a salve. Three months later, my husband went to the doctor and said, “My pain is under control, my finger mobility has increased and I’m sleeping great.” No more quarterly doctors appointments, no prescription pain killers, no co-pays, and no side effects from meds. We feel very blessed, and a bonus is that we save money because the oils last for many months, not just 30 days.” ~ Amy L.

“My son is 15 years old and gets occasional acne. He had a break out of acne on his face about a week before his freshman semi-formal dance.  I made him a mixture of Young Living oils for him to apply morning and night.  Every day he came to me to apply the oils that week.  His face was clear of acne for his dance!  I made him a jar with the mixture so he can apply whenever he wants and he uses it as part of his daily grooming routine. I love that he asked me to make him more when he runs out!” ~  Jan C.

“I mowed my lawn and scraped my neck with a branch. The next morning I had an itchy rash on my neck where it was scraped. I made a mixture of Purification, Lavender and Frankincense with coconut oil and applied it to the rash liberally 2 times a day.  The itch stopped on contact and the rash went away in a couple of days. I was so happy not to use over the counter medicine.” ~ Caitlin R.
