How to use essential oils when you have no clue.

Today I wanted to address an issue. FEAR.

Fear is powerful. It prevents us from experiencing. As I am sharing my essential oils with my friends, family and outter friends circles, more often then not, someone will say, “I have no clue how that stuff works, so I would never use them.”

Deep breath.

Okay, so at that point I want to pull out my big book, share research, and educate, educate, educate.  -Hint, that doesn’t work! Have you ever been told something and it just goes in one ear and out the other, per say? You don’t understand the lingo, you feel like the person is speaking another language… 

I’ve been there! 

My husband works on the river. He is a tow boat captain. Sometimes, he will accomplish something so great he has to tell me every detail about it. I smile and say things like “I’m proud of you” and “That is so awesome.” I mean it. I am proud and I do think it’s awesome, I just don’t understand a darn word of it (well, most of it). I understand his excitement and his feelings. I understand it is a big deal to him and he is so proud, that he wants to share it with me. I feel privileged that he has chosen to share the details of his accomplishments with me. 

Sometimes, I play the role of my husband in that story. I get soooooo excited about essential oils and blurt out everything I know in 10 minutes. -talk about exhausting (for you)!

I want to share with you the secret on how to use essential oils when you have no clue! I understand this can be overwhelming, but honestly, it doesn’t have to be! 

Here are my 6 easy steps:

  1. Once you get your Premium Starter Kit, open it up! (Don’t have one yet? Click here!)
  2. Pick your favorite color bottle (hint, don’t read the bottles yet)
  3. Open the bottle you just picked. 
  4. Place one drop in your palm and rub your hands together. 
  5. Cup your hands over your nose and breathe deep. Be careful not to touch your eyes. 
  6. Repeat step 5.

You have just experienced your first oil. 

Your body is amazing. It is going to remember that moment, even if your conscious mind does not. 

Tomorrow, I want you to pick a different favorite color and repeat the steps above. 

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. “Seriously, that’s what I read this post for??” Yep. That’s the science behind it!

A question I get when people see my collection is, “How do YOU pick the oil of the day?” I’ve got a pretty large collection. It seems like it would be hard to know which oil I need. It’s not. I walk up to my oils and relax (stop reading the labels), look at my bottles and my subconscious mind chooses the correct bottle for me. It NEVER fails. Note: some oils share similar bottle colors so I make sure I read the label before applying. 🙂  I also have my oils organized in a way that pleases me, so it makes the process even more simplified.

I hope you find this helpful and I wish you the best on your essential oil journey. Remember, our bodies are amazing and can do things that our mind cannot yet conceive. Trust your instincts because, more often then not, they are right! 

Happy oiling!

May Promos are Here!

Welcome to May!

It’s my favorite month! It’s my birthday month and the start of warmer weather! Here in Northeast Ohio, we get all excited about May. No more closed windows, no more sweatshirts, and most importantly, no more snow! Although the temperature likes to play games; 50 one day and 85 the next.

YES! Spring is at full throttle and so is Young Living! To celebrate this glorious month, Young Living is giving away a 15ml bottle of Tangerine to all new members who enroll with a Premium Starter Kit! You heard that right! A FIFTEEN ml bottle! Tangerine is the total spring time oil! It reminds me of my childhood. It brings back memories of imagination, excitement, adventure, and family. Its robust aroma is an excellent choice for your morning wake up call. Diffuse it to feel energized and get your day going or after a hard day to help you feel calm and relaxed. This is a favorite for my wool dryer balls. Add a few drops to your dryer balls during the last 20-30 minutes of dry time. Your clothes will come out smelling fresh!
May17-PSK-Promo-US

Tangerine is not the only reason to get excited about May! The promotions are all about spring time and mom!

Don’t forget, May means Mothers!

 

Young-Living-May-Promos

Did you see this? 5 levels of promotions!!! Valor! That means this month you can get 2 bottles instead of 1!  Seriously, folks, Valor makes all those other bottles less exciting!

Valor.is.the.only.oil.

Okay, you caught me! I am still SUPER excited about all these other oils!

Bonus: If you are on Essential Rewards you will receive a 5ml bottle of Orange Vitality with your 100pv order.  If you order over 190pv with ER you will also get a 15ml bottle of Citronella. What?! You’re not on ER!?! You, my friend, are missing out! Get on ER right now!

Happy Oiling!

Mom must have

must-have-oil

I’m so excited to say that I am finally back to blogging. For those of you that don’t know, I recently had a baby boy. He is so beautiful. I love spending all of my time with him. Adjusting to two kids is going well, and I finally feel like I can squeeze blogging into my schedule. Today I want to share with you my “mom must have oil”.

Everyday I have been using Abundance and Harmony and they are both working wonders for me! I’ll write about that later. The most important oil in my collection right now is digize. In my opinion, every mom should have this oil. Scratch that, EVERYONE should have this oil.

Looking back I don’t know how I survived without Digize after the birth of my first child. Luckily, I found Young Living a few months after she was born. During those first few months I gotta say, things were tough. My life was forever changed after I received my premium starter kit. Words cannot tell you how amazing essential oils are so today I have made a video of Digize in action!

Please note that I am using coconut oil to dilute digize before putting it on my son. Please learn how to dilute essential oils properly before applying them to your baby or children. The correct ratio for babies age nb-6mos is .25 drop:4 tsp

Also, please remember I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils. Using other brands may cause opposite effects or undesired side effects.

What is your mom must have oil??

Get Energized with these 5 Essential Oils!

Get Energized! My 5 Favorite Essential Oils for Energy!

I love my essential oils. I especially love using them to get energized! When I need more than just my morning cup of coffee I turn to my oils. There are many oils that will uplift you. I’d like to share with you my favorites and how to use them!

#1 Peppermint Essential Oil and Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil
Peppermint

I love using peppermint to give me that extra boost of positivity! You can apply it to your head and neck before, during, or after a workout. You can use this any time you feel like you need it! Diffuse this oil to enjoy the fresh, uplifting scent. Experiment by combining it with your other favorite single oils.  Peppermint Vitality can be added to your water for some extra digestive support which can help with energy. When the belly is bloated, energy is hard to come by. Peppermint comes in the Premium Starter Kit!!!

 

#2 En-R-Gee Essential Oil Blend

en-r-gee

As it’s name would suggest, En-R-Gee is energizing! This oil can be used topically on the pulse points such as the wrist, behind the ears, temples or any area you desire. Another great method is to diffuse or simply place a drop in your hands, cup over your face, and inhale. This is a must have oil!

#3 Orange Essential Oil and Orange Vitality Essential Oil

Orange

This oil can help you feel more productive and focused. They can also promote positive feelings. This oil is great diffused. If you want to give an extra kick to your peppermint add some orange to the diffuser for an extra eye opening experience! Orange is one of my favorites! I love to use the Vitality in my ice water. Now that I think about it, I need to order some more! My bottle is getting low! Experience the wonderful benefits yourself and order your own! This pairs well with many of the oils in the premium starter kit!

#4 Rosemary Essential Oil and Rosemary Vitality Essential Oil

Rosemary

 

Rosemary is extremely beneficial when you have low energy. It is stimulating to the mind and can help you focus and store information. This is especially helpful if you are trying to study or learn something new after a long day. This blends well with peppermint. Rosemary Vitality is excellent to add to your food in place of dried herbs. Use a toothpick to add the oil to a meal as essential oils are very potent.

#5 Lemon Essential Oil and Lemon Vitality Essential Oil

Lemon

Lemon falls into the citrus category. I love to diffuse it along with peppermint and lavender. If you need an extra stimulate mid day add a drop of Lemon Vitality to your unsweet tea, hot tea, or ice water. It tastes great and give you an extra boost. If you are finding it hard to concentrate after lunch time start packing this little baby in your lunch bag. It also taste great to add to salad dressings. This is an oil I carry with me daily. We have 3 bottles at all times! Lemon comes in the Premium Starter Kit!!!

How Young Living Can Give You Energy

How-Young-Living-Can-Give-You-Energy!

Lately, I’ve been feeling rundown. I’m 26 weeks pregnant and I’m finding myself tired all the time (Hence the lack of blogging). I’ve been searching for methods and ways to improve energy safely. I love my morning cup of joe, but my husband is on me like a hound every time I reach for a cup.  If you’re like most people you are using soda, coffee, or energy drinks loaded with sugar to get your daily energy.  Most of the people using those methods know they are not good, but feel that they have no other method of choice for energy boosting. I’m here to tell you that there is a better way! Young living offers several products that can help you achieve that alertness you are looking for without all the harmful side effects. Follow me as I cover many ways Young Living can give you energy to gain that extra bit of alertness you crave! More posts on energy to come!

Let’s talk a little about nutrition

Sure, a balanced diet filled will tons of good stuff is the key, but in our fast paced world, who has time for all that? It’s so easy to go through the drive thru for dinner, order pizza, or go out to your favorite restaurant. While I’m not opposed to eating out entirely, the truth is most americans do eat out daily. These food chains are not worried about you getting the right amount of vitamins and nutrients in your 3 meals a day! -Insert Supplements!

B Vitamins

The B vitamins are essential to a dynamic and energetic long life, on the contrary, you can get serious health problems if you lack them. B vitamins are easily lost from the body, and people on diets, alcoholics or those who take antibiotics or seizure drugs are even more prone to having vitamin B deficiency. The typical American diet high in processed, cooked and microwavable food gives us only a segment of the B-vitamins we need for good health. This is where a good B-Complex comes in!

Meet Young Living Super B Tablets!

Super-B-Tablets
Super B™ is a comprehensive vitamin complex containing eight essential and energy-boosting B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12. The complete B-vitamin profile in Super B not only assists in maintaining healthy energy levels, but it also supports the nervous system, aids in maintaining normal cardiovascular function, and helps with internal enzyme reactions.* With the new addition of B5, Super B now also assists with mood support. Because deficiencies usually include more than one B-vitamin, and because the B-vitamins work best as a team, you should take a B-complex supplement along with any single B-vitamin in order to achieve their synergistic effects.
It is important to acquire all eight B vitamins because they work together as a team. This is what keep your body functioning normally and provide you with the energy you need to conduct your daily activities.

If you would like to purchase Super B Tablets Click here! Want the Wholesale discount? Start here with a Premium Starter Kit to save on all your future orders!

Here is more information about the 8 B’s:

B1-Thiamin: Thiamin is necessary for adrenal gland function, proper immune performance and the synthesis of neurotransmitters. It also plays a role in the metabolism of food and alcohol. The RDA for thiamin is very low and does not consider increased thiamin requirements that result from an unhealthy lifestyle, old age or disease. For more information on Thiamin Click Here!
B2-Ribofiavin: Riboflavin is required for energy production and oxygen utilization. For more information on Riboflavin Click Here!
B3-Niacin: is also necessary for the body’s production of energy. For more information on Niacin Click Here!
B5-Pantothenic Acid: is obligatory for energy production. It is also required for proper immune function and adrenal stress hormone production. It is sometimes referred to as the “anti-stress” vitamin. For more information on Pantothenic Acid Click Here!
B6-Pyridoxine and B9- Folic Acid: work together to regulate the levels of homocysteine, a byproduct of protein breakdown that damages arteries and makes them prone to cholesterol deposits. For more info on B6 Click Here!
Folic acid is especially important for women of childbearing age, as deficiencies of this nutrient have been linked with birth defects. Women on birth control pills, pregnant women, all women of childbearing age, as well as alcoholics, heart disease patients and people taking antibiotics should make sure they take between 400-800 mcg of folic acid per day. For more information on Folic Acid Click Here!
B7- Biotin: Biotin is needed for the formation of fatty acids and glucose, which are used as energy in our body. For more information on Biotin Click Here!
B12-Methylcobalamin: is required for normal gene function, energy production, the formation of blood cells and proper immunity. For more information on B12 Click Here!
