How To Make Money with Essential Oils

Do you ever feel like you’re racing against time when you get home from work at the end of a day? Between groceries and cooking, but not eating too late – plus gym time or just finding some time to hang out with your husband?! My husband and I find ourselves constantly checking the clock in the evenings when we both get home from work, as if we can beat it’s constant ticking and squeeze everything we want to accomplish into one night.

Now, everyone has heard of those two lovely words “time management” right? It’s so easy, but really, it definitely takes some purposeful vision to do and do it well. I’m learning in this season of not really work a lot of hours, I can actually make good use of my downtime, earn a little extra income too and still have valuable time at the end of the day with my family! Cue the fireworks! That’s where Young Living comes in….

I signed up as a member with Young Living back in November after years of “research” (skepticism) and I have been unstoppable since. It’s taken me a hot minute to figure out the algorithm of Instagram and even learning about the purpose and importance of content – I’m still no pro, that’s for sure – but more than anything, it’s given me an opportunity grow in my abilities, challenge my thinking and allow me to start + grow my small business in the essential oils world. And the amazing thing is, these opportunities are available to you too!

What is all the buzz around essential oils? Good question! There are hundreds up hundreds of essential oils on the market right now and I’ve tried maybe half (ok, not really, but close). And what I learned from my years of “research” is that because they are not standardized or closely regulated, any brand can buy a label that says “100% pure” or “therapeutic grade” and slap it on their bottles. Even the phrase “certified” is a false advertisement because many actually think this means the FDA is regulating but in reality, it’s just a governing body of some sort have their seal of approval. So after many years of searching, a friend told me about Young Living and all of the benefits their oils offer. I had just gotten married and my husband was snoring like a he had a megaphone in his throat, so maybe I was weak in the moment, but I broke down and bought the RC essential oil from her. YOU GUYS! That first night we used RC, we slept like babies! I was instantly sold! Even after months of using the RC oil to sleep at night, we’ve tested to see how we sleep without the diffuser and are amazed at how beneficial these oils really are! After researching the authenticity of Young Living and learning that they are one of the only brands on the market that still owns their oil farms and understand their Seed to Seal promise, there was no going back for me! I’ve been a avid user and distributor ever since November and have loved every minute of it!

Reyes Essentials

Have you heard about the Essential Oil explosion over the last couple years? Me too. And I was a die hard skeptic. I loved the idea of all natural products and promoting better health, but I couldn’t fully believe that these oils were truly what they said they were. I tried so many different brands for a couple of years, always trying to find the brand that really was “100% pure”. I liked the smells and used peppermints for my headaches, but still had to resort to Tylenol because the oils I tried just weren’t cutting it. It wasn’t until I stepped into the world of Young Living, that I experienced huge results.

I recently got married and as some of you may be experiencing as well, my husband snores like a maniac. During our first couple months, we didn’t even have a couch yet – just an arm chair in the living room – and I actually resorted to sleeping in the chair one night.

My friend who sells Young Living told me about the RC Essential Oil that targets snoring husbands (not specifically, but you get me). I was at my wits end with the sleepless nights for both of us and decided to at least try it out. I order the RC Essential Oil and that night,diffused it in a diffuser I bought off amazon and hoped for the best 🤞🏼 . The next morning, I looked at my husband and he looked at me. It felt like we had just woken up from a coma.

That was when I knew I found the brand I believed in! I finally took the step and ordered my kit with Young Living and jumped in head first! I immediately started getting feedback and questions. I never saw myself as a sales person, I am actually the opposite and could convince you to not spend your money. That’s the great thing about Young Living, all you have to do is try and you’ll see what I mean. I’m even talking to the biggest skeptic out there – if you could muster up enough faith to order one little bottle that targets an area where you’d like to see some benefits, you’ll understand why I love Young Living so much.

There are so many Essential Oils to choose from, I chose to put the RC Essential Oil to the test. If you’re wanting to create a relaxed and calm environment in your home or routine, Lavender Essential Oil is a great one to start with. There are so many things you can do with Lavender – shampoos, bath bombs, lotions, etc. – it’s also found in many of the blends that Young Living has already made.

Frankincense is another Essential Oil that creates a safe, comforting atmosphere when used in a diffuser, but what I love even more is that it’s used for skin care. You can add frankincense to your day-time or night- time cream to highlight your natural beauty.

Then there’s the PanAway Essential Oil. PanAway has refreshing, invigorating aroma and a cooling sensation when applied to the skin. This is great for tired muscles after a vigorous workout or any time of the day to enjoy its soothing, stimulating aroma. You can even apply PanAway to your temples when you are in heavy traffic or crowded, loud spaces. How amazing is that?!

These are just a few of the Essential Oils that Young Living has to offer, there are so many others that you can experience today!! If you want to learn more or order your kit, you can click on my link here 👇🏼

Reyes Essentials 🌱 I’m so excited about this journey I’ve begun, not just for me, but for my family and our future. You can be apart of that journey too!

Public Service Announcement:

Hello family & friends!!

I hope you are well! As most of you know, I recently married the most amazing man on the planet and it has been nothing but marital bliss. We’ve had such a special few months of marriage and we’re looking forward to all God has in store for our lives together. 

As we continue forward in the plans God has for us, both together and individually, we’re happy to announce: 


(Nope, not pregnant) 

Josh and I recently started attending BRAVE Church in the last 6 months or so and immediately found our home. My heart is overwhelmed as we get ready for our first mission trip, together as a married couple, as well as, with our family at BRAVE Church. November 16-19, we’re going to be partnering with a ministry in the city of New York to reach the young and old, the rich and poor, the homeless, the hurting and even the ones who “have it all together.” We’ll be going into shelters of all kinds, doing VBS, and coming alongside the local church. I’m so excited to see what God has in store, not only for the people of NY, but for ourselves and what God wants to do in and through those of us apart of this trip. 

“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you.”—1 Thessalonians 1:2–4 (NIV)

With airfare, lodging, and other fees, this trip will cost the two of us $1,000 all together. I’m writing you to ask for your support, whether it’s through a financial gift or committing to praying for us as we raise support.  

Please pray for the following:

  • Full financial provision
  • Health, unity and safe travels for our team
  • God would open doors of ministry to share his love and grace. 

By His Grace,

Heather Reyes

love to death. 

Love: /ləv/ (n) an intense feeling of deep affection. (v) like very much; find pleasure in. (Merriam-Webster)

If love were enough to stop someone who was suicidal from hurting themselves, suicides would hardly ever happen. But love is not enough.

Said by Sue Klebold, the mother of one of the boys who came to be known as a Colombine shooter. When I heard her words, it shook me. They say a mothers love is the purest kind, the strongest bond, yet a mother herself admits her love is not enough. This mother’s love would never have been enough to stop her son from taking guns into a school and killing 13 people and then himself. Love wasn’t the answer to help this 17 year old struggling with depression and suicidal/homicidal thoughts. Love is not enough. 

How can something that is suppose to be so pure and life-giving, be to blame for death? Why isn’t love enough when love is suppose to be all we need? These questions have been rolling around in my mind the last couple weeks and has only brought doubt and fear to settle in: Love is tainted. Love isn’t pure. Love is broken. Love is just an excuse. Love is a mask. Love is a fraud

I could look at my own life and see how love has been so distorted, but I think everyone has some kind of story that says love has hurt them or even, resulted in death. So why do we spend our lives searching for something so broken? Why do we suffer through abuse for a chance to have something that could kill us? It sounds crazy, right? For a long time I pushed away love yet lived with depression from the lack of love in my life. Wouldn’t I be better off without it? But the truth, our love isn’t enough. Our love is broken, it is tainted. We, as humans, are filled with conditional and selfish love. If you look at the Webster definition of love, you can see it’s self-satisfying – of course it’s not enough to save a life from suicide. I have yet to fully understand what unconditional love really even looks like and sometimes I think I never will. We are human – flawed, imperfect humans. But it doesn’t end there. Although this love we as humans are capable of giving isn’t enough, there is a love that is enough.

But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief;

This scripture in Isaiah 43:10 always hits me hard. To think that it pleased God to bruise is own son. It sounds crazy, but that’s unconditional love. God entered into a covenant with man just so He could have relationship with us, with me. God understood the covenant and knew that we (mankind) would never be able to uphold our end of the bargain, so He did what He saw fit to fulfill both sides of the covenant, sending His son as a sacrifice. And it pleased Him. And that’s it…it’s done! God would literally cease to exist if He failed to fulfill his promise to man. That’s unconditional love. Love that is sacrificial. Love that protects. Love that is enough. Love that brings the dead to life

This is such a simple concept within the realm of Christianity, but really, when you catch revelation of just how big God’s love for humanity is, it’s not so simple. 


I’m not sure I can fully articulate all of what God has been teaching me and showing me over the past couple months. I don’t even think there are letters to form – Webster approved – words that describe the revelation of what God has revealed to my heart. I think that’s the beauty of it; an oxymoron, really. Mystery in the understanding. It’s like you know what God has shown you, but you really have no idea. We hear the gospel, about the gift of salvation, and – let’s be real – what’s better than that?! But I’m going to be really honest, sometimes I don’t think it’s all that and a bag of chips. Sometimes the salvation message is just a nice add-in at the end of a Sunday preaching. Sometimes the story of the cross is so far off and distant to my understanding, that I can’t fully grasp the depth of what Jesus did for me. Sometimes, I’m just plain human.

This past year, I can say, has been one of the most difficult ones of my Christian walk. Growing up in dysfunction, addiction and pain was a norm for me. So when my heart collided with Jesus a couple years ago, after going through rehab and relapsing, I really set out to understand this Christian thing. Learning what faith was in such a tangible way, walking in it – then finding myself climbing a Mount Everest and falling off it; it was devastating to say the least. I had pretty much lost all hope in this “Christian” way of life. I was angry at God and hated the church. Death seemed like the only rational option. I tried not to stay in my pit because, well, I had already gone so far with the Lord, I knew going back to my old ways weren’t an option. So what now God? Are you just going to leave me here to struggle with depression and anxiety the rest of my life? No, I have come that you may have life, life to the full.

So what am I missing about this whole gospel thing? Why is it so hard for me to really grasp my salvation (not meaning my point of conversion, but rather everything therein after)? This is where the revelation comes to play: Covenant. Ok, cool. I hear that a lot. That’s a nice church word, but really, it’s not from our Christianese language at all. When I began to understand in depth the meaning of a covenant, I slowly began to understand my position in Christ. God had promised Abram a child, despite his old age, but even he – a man marked as a man of faith – doubted the promises of God. He questioned God – how can I know I will gain possession of it? But God met Abram where he lacked – God destroyed Abram’s doubt when He met him in his doubt with a covenant.

I am learning that if we could fully understand what God says about us, if we really believed his promises, we would walk in victory rather than heartache. I can look back and see where I believed the lies instead of what God said about me. I walked in insecurities rather than truth. I wore shame instead of righteousness. And let’s be real, I still believe the lies some days, but I’m learning how deadly that belief system really is. And we can’t fully grasp what Jesus says as truth if we don’t fully believe what He says is true. There’s a lack of understanding about what God really thinks of me and that’s where God meets me – in my lack.

Abram got real about his doubt – and so am I: Why did you let me go through everything I’ve gone through? I don’t understand how you can love me? How can anyone love someone like me? Sometimes I feel like you put me on this earth just to suffer. My heart will never learn how to be loved. I’m not worthy of love. I’ll never be good enough. I’m better off alone. And this is just to name a few. But I named them, nonetheless. I put words to the aches of my heart that I struggle with almost daily. But God. I’m learning everyday of God’s faithfulness and just how much he really does love me. And I can believe it because of the covenant. I have to believe it because of the covenant. The covenant says that God would cease to exist before breaking the promises He has made. He would cease to exist – I think that’s where my revelation began. A God so far outside of time, greater than all creation, yet longing for relationship with the created. He put His existence on the line so we would know and believe what He says is true. That His promises are true.

So I stand in my lack, face to face with grace; having my doubts destroyed by the covenant that Jesus extends to a wretched soul like me. Believing that I am justified, made whole. I am forgiven and redeemed. I am complete in Him, secure, and free from all condemnation.  I am hidden in Him and confident that He will complete the good work He started in me. I am anointed to do good works, chosen and appointed to bear fruit. I can believe it because of the covenant – I have to believe it because of the covenant.


Tonight one of my old scars started itching, so I scratched it. And scratched it. It wouldn’t stop itching but the more I scratched, the more the scar turned into a scab again. So what do I do? I google it. Why do old scars still itch? The answer: it takes months, even years, for a wound to heal. BAM. Quite the parallel!

I have scars – old wounds – that still itch. That I can’t seem to stop scratching. To let them heal. I scratch and scratch and scratch, looking for some kind of temporary relief, when the truth is – I just need to leave it alone. Let it heal. It’s uncomfortable; leaving it be. It sends an itching sensation that makes you want to go crazy! But eventually, the itching goes away and the wound finally heals. For good. And while, yes, you need to leave it alone – NO SCRATCHING – there are still steps to take that assist in the healing process. Cleaning the wound, ointment, and keeping it covered. Its actually very simple; the things on my end to take care of a wound. I just have to let my body do the work to heal itself. Our body’s were created that way, to heal.

And no, I’m not just talking about a physical scar. I’m very much talking about emotional scars – wounds. I have a lot of them. It would be an understatement to say I’m damaged. Some are even self-inflicted, nonetheless, they’re there and itchy. And I can’t leave them alone. Except that I can, and I will. I’m learning how to heal. I’m learning how to let my body heal – and I’m learning how to let God do it. It’s the most uncomfortable process I have gone through. And no, it’s not just a once in a lifetime experience. I can say, I’ve been here more than once. But because of the multiple visits to this pain-persistent land, I can also say I have hope. I have hope that the scars will indeed heal. I have hope that it won’t always feel like this. And I have hope that there will be new, more beautiful skin regenerated where there was once death.

One day I’ll be thankful for this particular process of healing, just like I am thankful for my previous processes. But that day isn’t today, so I hold onto hope.

Happy Father’s Day

A phrase that not many are able to utter from their lips without some sort of shame or heartache attached to it. What’s so happy about it anyways? is what my heart really wants to say. But I don’t. I smile and emotionlessly say those three words that pierce my heart. Don’t get me wrong, I genuinely am happy for those who can rejoice with their fathers and have a special day completely dedicated to how great their dad is. But that genuine happiness is so easily stolen from me as the broken memories flood my mind.


My instinct is to shut down all emotions that begin to creep up. But why?


Fear keeps me from expressing the parts of my heart that God so desperately wants to heal. Our emotions are okay, it’s what we do with them.

I refuse to let fear control me and hold me back from all the gifts my Father wants to give me! And through that, I have begun to get a glimpse of who this Jesus really is and what he’s done for me. Now I can rejoice in my circumstances because I know that God has used it for His glory and has brought my heart to further lands of faith in Him that I probably would have never ventured to otherwise. He is my Provider, my Protector and Perfect Father.  So whether your earthly father is one that has been reliable, trustworthy and loving or if he has abandoned, broken and hurt you, we will always have a Heavenly Father that has a deeper love than we could ever imagine.

He says, “I am greater than any memory, stronger than any fear. I want your heart. I want all of your heart. Even the darkest of areas that you think you are hiding. I see it all and I want it. I restore. I am hope. I am Father. Daddy. You’re my daughter, how could I not love you? How could I ever give you up. My heart is torn within me, by heart breaks for you. How precious you are to me. I think nothing but sweet thoughts of you, my child. Come to me, I will redeem what has been lost. I love you. Do you hear me? I love you.

    “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!'” | Romans 8:15
