My name is April McBride and I am a wife and mother of two boys.  After becoming a mother, I started looking for a way to remove toxic cleaners from my home.  I started switching to “greener” cleaners awhile back.  As I learned more about cleaning without the toxic chemicals that are found on grocery store shelves, I started learning about essential oils.  What I discovered is that essential oils can be used for so much more than just cleaning!  I love using essential oils as a way to support overall wellness (especially for supporting my immune system) and also as a way to replace many personal care products and toxic cleaners.  I enjoy sharing with others what I have learned about essential oils and their many uses.  

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. They’re basically concentrated herbs! They contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodies’ health and wellness.


There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Lavender and Peppermint to unusual and exotic ones like Petitgrain and Spikenard, there’s an unfathomably huge range to choose from – and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses. 

Why Young Living?

Not all essential oils are created the same.   For 25 years, Young Living has set the standard for essential oils.  Young Living owns and operates several farms where they follow the Seed to Seal process to ensure that they produce the highest quality essential oils.  If I’m going to be putting products on my family’s skin and around our home, I want to know they’re pure and unadulterated!  To learn more about the Seed to Seal process, please visit

How do I get started?

Are you ready to try essential oils, but unsure of what to start with?  Young Living makes it easy to get started with the Premium Starter Kit which contains your everyday staples – all the oils and equipment you’ll want to have on hand for a variety of situations. There’s an excellent user guide, too, which will help you understand how to use everything contained in the kit.


Here’s what else is great: once you buy the Premium Starter Kit, you automatically become a “wholesale member” of Young Living. This means you can continue to buy other Young Living products for a huge 24% discount off the retail price! You’re under zero obligation to buy any other products as a wholesale member, but if you do, you get 24% off!

Step by Step:  Purchase your Premium Starter Kit

1. Click on the link above to sign up.

Remember: you’re NOT obligated to make any further purchases after this. Wholesale membership simply allows you to buy the Premium Starter Kit at a huge discount and entitles you to 24% off or retail for all future purchases.


3. In Step 1, select your starter kit:  “Premium,” "Specialty," or “Basic” Starter Kit.  Most people choose a Premium Starter Kit with oils and a diffuser- you even get to CHOOSE which diffuser you want from 4 options: the Desert Mist diffuser, the Dew Drop diffuser, the Rainstone diffuser or the Aria diffuser. I highly recommend the Premium Starter Kit because it comes with everything you need to get started, and it’s the best value (60% off retail price).


4. Step 2 is optional: sign up for the frequent buyers’ club called Essential Rewards (ER). When you join, you’ll start accumulating rewards points for everything you buy, which can be used to get free products on future orders. Essential Rewards is the BEST way to buy your oils and products because you earn between 10% and 25% back on your orders!  If you are serious about ditching toxins from your home, joining Essential Rewards is the best way to do it.
