New Products

This is an exciting day! Young Living has just released some new products that I believe are the best of the best.  There is something for everyone, a new baby line that includes a baby massage oil!  Even our little ones deserve to be massaged too and the benefits are rewarding.  As a mommy of three little ones, who have all ready enjoyed the benefits of growing up in a toxic free home, I am beyond thrilled to have more options.  The Seedlings line consistent of a refreshing and calming scent.  It is a blend that was formulated for this line only, it includes lavender, bergamot, geranium (one of my favorites), ylang ylang, and coriander.

My favorite new product is the make up line by Sweet and Savvy.  The creator of this amazing all natural make-up line is no other than Melissa Poepping who is also the author of the chemical home free books.  I have been using her make up for a year and I can not say anything negative about it.  The best part now is that I can order it from Young Living and use my reward points to buy my make-up! Getting free make-up is always a good day!

These makeup products are free from bismuth, parabens, talc, and gluten.
Right now the Savvy Minerals collection consists of misting spray, foundation, blush, bronzer, eye shadow, eye liner, lip gloss, and lipstick.

April Showers Bring…

Spring Season is here, are you ready?  April showers can not only bring May flowers but also itchy bugs and respiratory needs.  Don’t get me wrong, I love when the weather begins to warm up and my family and I can spend late nights outside.  It also means summer vacation is almost here, which is always a win, win in my book.  Until then check out these springtime recipes!

Premium Starter Kit Challenge Day 10:
Today’s oil… Digize

Let’s be honest if you have smelled this oil before it is probably not your favorite, at least it is not mine. Despite the unusual smell it is extremely effective. Unfortunately I was struck by the stomach bug last week and Digize came to my rescue. Here are some other benefits:

Premium Starter Kit Challenge Day 11:

RC-Young-Living-Essential-Oil

RC

Why use R.C. essential oil?!!!!! We use this one almost weekly!

**Be sure to check your Gentle Babies Guide for your little ones!!

This is a great one to choose for respiratory support. Supporting the lungs and sinuses naturally with essential oil encourages proper nasal function. R.C. is a unique combination that is soothing.  R.C. contains limonene which is a helper to defer free radicals. R.C. with its unique combination of essential oils is also supportive to the immune system!

Some of our favorite uses:

R.C. in the diffuser is especially uplifting and clears and freshens the air. Of course you are inhaling the oil when you are diffusing with your cool mist diffuser or inhaling directly from the bottle or your cupped hand over your nose. Either application goes to your lungs, again for respiratory support.

Applying R.C. topically is best applied with your favorite carrier oil, such as Young Living’s V-6 or coconut oil. I like to apply as a chest/back rub or to the bottoms of feet as desired.

What exactly makes up this blend:

  1. Cypress essential oil :Cypress is supportive to the immune system and circulatory system. It is an emotionally grounding oil.

2. Spruce essential oil  :offers immune and hormone support. Another emotionally balancing and grounding oil. Spruce was believed to have a frequency related to prosperity in ancient cultures

3. Eucalyptus globulus essential oil: contains the key constituent 1,8-Cineole (Eucalyptol). Another immune supporting oil. Used historically in mouth rinses. It is supportive to the lungs and sinuses. Supportive to sore muscles on occasion, after a typical work out.

4. Eucalyptus radiata essential oil: also high in Eucalyptol constituent, so similar properties to globulus. Slightly gentler in my opinion.

5. Eucalyptus citriodora essential oil :used in days gone by as linen closet perfumery. Also respiratory and immune supporting.

Day 5: Premium Starter Kit Challenge

Thieves
Welcome Back for another day of awesome information regarding your essential oils!
If this oil doesn’t convince you to be oily, I don’t know what else will!!
This oil has made the BIGGEST change in my life. I haven’t used harmful cleaners or chemicals in my house for 3 years!

Some facts:
Thieves is a blend of lemon (Citrus limon) peel oil, rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalus) leaf oil, clove (Syzygium aromaticum) bud oil, cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) bark oil, and eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) leaf oil. It has an amazing smell that I use EVERYDAY!!

One thing a lot of people haven’t been told is that essential oils have been used for thousands of years. They aren’t some new, hip thing. In fact, Thieves got its name from a band of thieves in France during the 15th century who were taking the personal belongings of those killed by the plague! When they were finally caught, they were offered a lighter sentence if they would tell their secret of how they weren’t becoming sick. A blend of these five oils was their secret… to not getting the plague… THE PLAGUE! This stuff is incredible!

Beauty

Recently I had the privilege of gathering with a group of ladies to discuss life and of course oils.  We talked about our growing faith, our kids, our struggles and how crazy our schedules are .  I love gatherings like this, I always come away feeling encouraged and grateful for God’s workmanship and His control.

During our time together we  did a little impromptu beauty school/make and take!  I had a blast sharing the importance of paying attention to what ingredients are not only in our food and cleaning supplies but also our beauty products.  My favorite resources are the Chemical Home Free Books! These simple books are packed full of information about harmful chemicals found in our beauty products and recipes.

chemical-home-1Here are some ingredients to stay away from when looking for a healthy, natural face wash.

parabens
fragrance
propylene glycol
sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)

Of course the best option is to just make your own!  Here are my favorite recipes for face wash and serum.
Supplies:
-Foaming bottle
-Sweet almond oil (or choose a carrier oil that is good for you)
-Glass serum bottle
-Dr. Bonners unscented castile soap
-essential oils

Carrier Oil Options:
organic sweet almond oil- best for all skin types
organic jojoba Oil- best for aging skin
organic grapeseed oil- best for normal or acne prone
organic avocado oil- best for dry skin

What a great day, where beauty was found on the inside and out.
