Make and Take

Make and Takes are a fun way to get your friends and team members together and share recipes using Young Living Essential Oils.  This type of event helps to show just how versatile the oils are and how you can incorporate them into your daily lives.  The recipes made at a make and take can be used for personal use, birthday gifts, or holiday gifts.  I recommend doing 4 recipes and depending on how many people attend, you can either have 4 stations to rotate through or have everyone work on the same recipe.

I recommend having at least one Thieves recipe, either make a Thieves Spray, Thieves mouthwash, or a spray bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner.  These are very inexpensive and a great way to introduce the Thieves line of products.

Pinterest has more DIY recipes than you can imagine.  Pick your favorite ones and try them first.  The website essentiallysweethealth.com has a recipe book that encourages “green living” and can be ordered under the “more tab”. Other resource books I like to use can be ordered from lifesciencepublishing.com and have recipes for nasal sprays, bath salts, food recipes with eo’s, etc.

During this event, you can talk about the importance of eliminating toxins in your home and show how easy and cost effective it is to replace these items for healthy, immune boosting, non-toxic items.  I encourage everyone to participate in Essential Rewards to get the extra savings and switch out their old products for safe, wellness products.  With Essential Rewards, you can break up a larger order into smaller ones and space it out over several months.  This is very affordable.  One month try the Thieves line, next try the skin care, then toothpaste, deodorant and shampoo… there are lots of ways to do it!
