This Valentine’s Day, why not make a batch of these melt-in-your mouth chocolate truffles for someone you love? Modify the details to your hearts desire. You could add chopped pecans, almonds, or macadamia nuts. You could replace the Therapeutic Grade Peppermint oil with Therapeutic Grade Orange oil and make Orange Dreamsicle White Chocolate Truffles instead. Be creative!

Note: Never ingest low quality essential oils internally. I only recommend Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils because I trust their purity.

Chocolate Mint Truffles

This may also be a fun project to do with children! What child doesn’t love slathering his fingers in chocolate to make little balls of heavenly sweetness?

My friend, Tonya Chapa, from whom I originally got the basis for this recipe, told me that as she was making it, and her hands were completely covered in chocolate, her little girl watched her with great interest. Finally, with a very serious expression, she asked, “Mommy may I lick your fingers?What a smart girl!

Luscious Mint Chocolate Truffles

  • 8 oz, weight (up to 9 oz) good quality semisweet chocolate
  • 8 oz, weight (up to 9 oz) good quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (I know, I know)
  • 1-2 drops of Therapeutics Grade Peppermint Essential Oil (orange can be used for Dreamsicle version)
  • 8 oz. weight melt-able milk chocolate (I use those melting candies) (for Dreamsicle recipe, use melt-able white chocolate)
  1. Heat dark chocolates and condensed milk in a double boiler over medium low heat until chocolate is melted. Stir. Mixture will have a slight marshmallow texture.
  2. Remove from heat, cool slightly, add essential oils, cover and refrigerate for two hours.
  3. Once chilled, roll mixture into balls. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
  4. Then dip in melted milk chocolate coating and sprinkle immediately with crushed peppermint candies or orange zest (for Dreamsicle recipe). [Proceed with this step one at a time or else the chocolate will get hard and nothing will stick to it) The toppings are optional, but sure make a pretty display.

If you aren’t using Essential Rewards (ER), you are losing money!

If you’re like me, every penny counts, and you like to budget for what you need each month. So, as a thrifty mom, I figured you’d want to know the most economical way to stock up on your essential oils. If you haven’t yet signed up for the Essential Rewards (ER) program, you are losing money!

Essential Rewards is simply a money-saving auto-ship program that offers discounts and reward points based on your monthly purchases (purchases that you can change each month). Again, you do not have to order the same thing each month; in fact, I encourage people to be sure to try something different each month!

There is no registration fee, so just click on the “Essential Rewards” button in your Virtual Office (you’ll need your member number and password) and schedule a (minimum) 50 PV monthly purchase (which you can modify at any time).

ERDecemberThis is a great way to budget and “try out” the different oils available while at the same time earning points for free products, enjoying discounted shipping, and building your own stash of oils! And it feels like you’re getting a birthday present in the mail each month!

Check out all the Benefits

  • Discounted pricing on exclusive product packages (I love this!)
  • Earn points for FREE products (Even better!)

  • And, loyalty gifts for those on the program!

If you are serious about using Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and products regularly, this is the most economical way to do it.

Budget Your Oils While You Build Your Collection

Budgeting for what you need each month just makes sense. I’ve even seen some people write out a 3-6 month “schedule” to budget which oils they plan to order each month. How organized is that?

Earn Points for FREE Oils!

Every time you place an Essential Rewards order, you’ll earn 10-25% in points for FREE essential oils (or other products).

How Much?

The first three consecutive months, you receive points worth 10% of the PV of each Essential Rewards order. After you have been on the program for just four months, your reward percentage jumps to 20%! Yes, 20% of the PV of your Essential Rewards order! Then, after 24 months, this leaps to 25%! Wow!

Get started by logging into your virtual office and clicking “Essential Rewards.” If you need help, don’t hesitate to contact me or someone on your leadership team.

Let’s see how this works. As a reminder…

  • From months 1-3, you earn 10%
  • Months 4-24, you earn 20%
  • Months 25+, you earn 25%

In other words, at this point, after 24 consecutive months on the program, for every $100.00 you spend in oils or oil based products (through ER), you get $25.00 in FREE products! So, in addition to the wholesale discount you’re already getting, you’ll earn FREE stuff too!

To save even more, I’ve written an article to help you learn more ways to stretch your essential oil dollars: Five Ways to Afford Essential Oils.

And, then there are the loyalty gifts! The first will will come to you once you have been on the program for just three months (Peppermint Vitality™ essential oil, 5 ml)! The second (Thieves® Vitality™ essential oil blend, 5 ml) will come after six months. The third (Melaleuca Alternifolia essential oil, 15ml), after nine months. And then, a special gift called Loyalty Oil will come to you annually on each successive anniversary of your initial participation date!

Lastly, you may qualify for a free gift every month! Each month, the company offers FREE PRODUCTS for those who participate in the Essential Rewards program at the 100PV level! This month, for instance, you would receive a 5ml Live Vitality oil! If you invest 190PV in your household through this program, you would get the Lime PLUS a 5 ml Blue Cypress!

Can you see why I have been on this program since 2010? I know you will see the value as well.

And please feel free to schedule a FREE CONSULTATION with me if you have any questions about Essential Rewards! You are going to love this program!
