My very own giveaway: Essential Oil (CLOSED)

It's about time I hosted my own giveaway. Seems like the 100th post is usually when people jump onto the giveaway bandwagon, so I've been gearing up for this moment.

Here's what I am offering: a 5ml bottle of lavender or peppermint Young Living brand essential oil.

Lavender is my "go to" oil for most things. It is one of my favorite smells--very relaxing, which is why I often put a drop on my pillowcase before bed. My little one will ask for this oil (or Tea Tree--Nature's Neosporin!) whenever she gets a cut or bruise.

Peppermint is another oil that I keep in my purse. You never know when you might have a tummy ache and need a quick drop of peppermint on your tongue! Just smelling the oil has helped me get through many headaches.

Tell your friends to come on over and check it out. All you need to do is leave a comment. If after looking around here for a while you decide you'd like to follow me on the journey... cool, please do. But, it's not required to enter the giveaway contest.

What is required is that you go to my essential oil web site and take a look around. In your comment, tell me what oil (or other product) appeals to you. If you don't mind sharing the "why", I would love to hear that, too. Also, which oil would you like if you win--lavender or peppermint?

If you live outside the USA and know that an essential oil bottle will make it through customs to you, you may enter as well! I will use some random method of choosing names, depending upon the number of entrants. Good luck to you.... Contest closes Sunday at midnight. Come on back next Monday (May 10th), noonish, to see if you've won. Let the games begin!


  1. Hi! I took a look at your website - some very neat stuff! In partcular, I love the description of all the Thieves products. Not only because of the immune support, but because clove/cinnamon is my favorite smell ;) the soft lozenges seem neat too, probably very tasty. If I win, I would love the lavender oil (my next fab after cinnamon!) Thanks!

  2. I might as well enter, since I am on a roll with the giveaways! I think lemon is my fave. It reminds me of lemon drops - the only candy I could eat while prego, without enducing (at least thoughts of) vomit! But, I would like lavender...

  3. I'm just getting started with essential oils, I currently have tea tree and orange. I would love to expand my collection with one of your kits. Thanks for the giveaway, hope to win :)

  4. I'm all for peppermint! I love lemon, but once I put it strait into my bath and got a burning rash. Ever since then, I've been very suspicious of lemon

  5. I would probably choose Lemon - I like it's fresh, invigorating scent and would add it to my handmade laundry detergent. I suffer frequent headaches, so if I win I'd choose the peppermint. Thank you!

  6. I only have two oils around my house: lavender and eucalyptus! LOVE them both! Use them all the time! I looked around your website and saw that I have to learn so much more! I am interested in essential oils and everything that they can do for us!! I don't know which one I would choose if I won...I may need your help!! :) Thanks for telling me about this awesome giveaway!!

  7. Loved your website! I would love to start to use essential oils around my house. I have heard they are so good for you and have been looking for a play to buy them. I make my own laundry detergent and have been looking for an oil to put in so I would pick lavender for me. Thanks for a fun contest!
