Living My Best Life with a little help from the world’s best Essential Oils 💕

Sometimes I forget what it was like 3 years ago; that day when my Premium Starter Kit arrived in the mail and I opened it up.  I just remember my excitement; this whole new world that I was about to become part of!  I opened everything and smelled every bottle…feeling a little overwhelmed and slightly dizzy from sensory overload.

At the time, every bottle kind of smelled the same to me and I couldn’t believe people actually knew what to use and when.  How did anyone remember that Thieves and Purification supported the immune system and that RC and Peppermint supported the respiratory system?? 😳

Fast forward 3 years and I can count over 100 open bottles of oils in my home, about 25 of which I use every single day and I’ve never felt better!  It takes time and patience and consistent use to learn what every bottle does, and I still use my reference guide to look up new ideas all the time, but the small effort is SOOOO worth it!

There’s NOTHING better than having all the tools you need for your (and your family’s) physical and emotional health right at your finger tips.

🤩 Imagine your home smelling fresh and clean all the time, having a restful nights sleep every single night and creating your own perfumes and room sprays that don’t disrupt your endocrine systems.

🤩 Imagine a home with zero harsh chemicals, zero products that would cause you to call poison control when consumed and cleaning products your toddlers can play with.

🤩 Imagine staying above the wellness line ALL YEAR LONG, not even blinking an eye when your co-worker coughs all over you, having a company at your disposal that you can trust, and receiving a pay check for helping your friends stay healthy too.

That’s what I have now.  Thanks to Young Living. 🥰

Now let me tell you as simply as possibly what you need to know:

Essential oils are basically the life blood of the plant they are pressed or steamed distilled from.  They have properties that work seamlessly with the cells in our bodies to bring us into our optimum homeostasis.  All we need to do is get them into our bodies so they can do their jobs!

Everyday we should be using essential oils in all 3 ways:

✨Topically – on the skin, diluted with a little coconut, grapeseed or olive oil

✨Internally – consumed in water, tea, coffee, juice or in a vegetable capsule

✨Aromatically – breathed in right from the bottle or in a cool mist diffuser

*Always use only a couple drops at a time as essential oils are VERY concentrated forms of that plant.

To stay well, essential oils should be used in these 3 ways multiple times throughout the day.  Some people like to premake roller bottles or spray bottles for quick application while others prefer to carry full bottles right in their purses to add to glass water bottles and car or office diffusers.

And don’t forget supplements!  No one can consume all the nutrients we need in a day so swallowing essential oil infused vitamins like Inner Defense or Multi Greens or Super C, drinking NingXia Red (a superfood beverage loaded with antioxidants and essential oils that support overall health and longevity) and adding oils to capsules can be a game changer for our wellness.

I do all of the above.  The more you use the oils, the more likely your emotions and health will stay balanced.

You don’t need to know exactly how to use them before you start.  Just experiment.  Get them in and on your body.  See how you feel.  Feel the changes.

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Try these 10 SIMPLE IDEAS once you get those oils in your hands (and when I say oils, I am only speaking for Young Living’s pure oils as I have not seen proof of the purity of other companies’ oils):

♥️1. Put a roller top on your bottle of StressAway EO and roll it on your wrists when the day gets crazy.

♥️2. Put a 3 drops of Lemon or Peace & Calming EO in your diffuser, fill it with cool water and breathe it in

♥️3. Fill a 2oz glass spray bottle with a pinch of salt, 10 drops StressAway and 7 drops Peppermint and water.  Shake and spray the bathroom for a spa like atmosphere.

♥️4. Add 2 drops of Purification EO or Citrus Fresh EO to a cotton ball and put it in your gym bag or trash or sweaty shoes

♥️5. Add 10 drops of Lavender to a small jar of epsom salt, shake it up and sprinkle a little in your kid’s bath a night time to help everyone wind down

♥️6. Grab a 10ml roller bottle off Amazon and fill it with 10 drops Valor, 10 drops Lavender and top off with a carrier oil like liquid coconut, grapeseed, jojoba, V6 or olive oil.  Roll on the shoulder blades, jaw line, wrists or anywhere to promote relaxation

♥️7. Grab another 10ml roller bottle and fill it with 10 drops Digize EO and your carrier oil of choice.  Roll in a large circle around your belly button at every meal.  Do the same for your kids.  Put one in every bathroom.

♥️8. Grab another 10ml roller bottle and fill it with 10 drops Thieves EO and your carrier oil of choice.  Give one to each of your kids to apply anywhere on their bodies, especially the bottoms of their feet and spines, throughout the day.

♥️9. Drink 1-2 ounces of NingXia Red EVERYDAY – ✨seriously, if you do nothing else, at least do this one✨

♥️10. Take that packet of Thieves Household Cleaner, dump it in a big ole spray bottle and fill it with water.  Clean every single thing in your house.  Need scrubbing power?  Sprinkle baking soda down and then spray with the Thieves Cleaner.  Throw out all your other toxic cleaning chemicals.  YOU NO LONGER NEED THEM.

ENJOY!  Switching to a life of fewer toxic products is fun and liberating!  Everything smells wonderful and nothing causes your body harm or headaches!

Switching out products in your home takes time.  Switch out one thing every month.  Start by replacing your aerosol bathroom spray with the StressAway Peppermint spray I mentioned above.  Then the next month, switch out your all purpose cleaner for Thieves Cleaner.  The next month, replace your hand soaps with Castile soap mixed with 10 drops of Thieves or Citrus Fresh Essential Oil.

Superfood NingXia Red!

Are you consuming enough antioxidants? Not likely.

I’m snowed in today so I’m going to share with you some research I’ve recently discovered about antioxidants and my new favorite beverage, NingXia Red (or as my kids call it, “magic juice”)!

Antioxidants are incredibly important and powerful! Here’s some ways antioxidants can help YOU stay in optimal health:

*Love on your skin, eyes, tissue, joints, heart, and brain

*Improve skin making it healthier & more youthful

*Help cells turn over optimally

*Detoxify the body by removing free radicals

*Provide a longer life span

*Protect against cardiovascular damage

*Lower your risk of cognitive problems

*Reduce risk for vision loss or disorders

Without sufficient antioxidants, we may have poor cellular turnover which can lead to a host of unfun issues!

Did you know that your body will completely change ALL of the cells in its body every 7 years? That’s a new opportunity for health and wellness every 7 years! Isn’t that amazing?! So any wrongs you’ve done in the past can be erased through making good choices TODAY.

But when we make bad choices over and over again, each 7-year cycle gets progressively worse and nobody wants that.

This is where antioxidants can be so powerful! They keep your cells healthy and happy. 😁

My favorite antioxidant is NingXia Red and here’s why: In 1993, Young Living Founder D. Gary Young, was traveling the world seeking the natural secrets of life, energy, and vitality, when he discovered a small culture living extraordinary long lives and was introduced to Chinese scientist Dr. Songqiao Chao. Dr. Chao told Gary about a delicious berry that had been prized for thousands of years in China for its powerful health supporting benefits. He further explained that the people who regularly ingested this berry led remarkably long and healthy lives.

No wonder China feeds NingXia wolfberries to their Olympians! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

People eating these particular wolfberries were living longer, healthier lives so Gary became convinced that this super-fruit needed to be made available to everyone! By combining the fruit with citrus 🍊 essential oils (for their high limonene content) and a few other powerhouse 🍒 fruits, Gary created a powerful superfood drink that tastes great and replenishes the body with key nutrients!

Independent testing from Brunswick Laboratories showed that Ningxia Red contains the highest amount of superoxide radical (S-ORAC), the most powerful antioxidant, when compared to all other antioxidant drinks on the market.

In fact, 1 oz. of NingXia Red has the same amount of antioxidant levels as:

34 large onions

or 100 oranges

or 814 blueberries

or 22 medium carrots

or 10.85 pounds of spinach

or 55.33 pounds of almonds

or 59 broccoli florets

or 73 medium strawberries

or 93 apples

or 130 tomatoes

I don’t know who is going to eat over 800 blueberries or over 90 apples in one day, but go you if that’s your thing! If you want to learn more about NingXia Red, follow the NingXia Challenge Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/30daynxrcheerschallenge/ because they have been sharing some amazing studies and info!! Or do your own research by visiting scholar.google.com or pubmed.org. If you were going to add just one new health improvement to your routine this year, let it be drinking 1-2oz of NingXia Red every day. It tastes good, improves your cell & overall health, gives you optimal energy and promotes quality sleep. What more could you want?

Seriously, even your dog 🐕 should be drinking this stuff!

Time to rally the kids up for their daily 1oz shot of NingXia Red! #livebetter

Happy Snow Day to you all! ❄️
