Peace & Calming

peaceandcalmingheader

I want you to imagine something with me here… imagine your household being completely peaceful… pets, significant others, and kids all sleeping soundly, just the super quiet noise of the fan going… sounds good doesn’t it? Well guess what, it can be a reality with this oil… I’m totally not pulling your chain here… this stuff is amazing.

I diffuse this stuff all the time (and at night with lavender, OMG so awesome), knocks everybody in the household out, even the pets. And when Jake (my hyper 1 year old German Shepherd) is being awful in the house, I put a few drops on my hands and give him a good petting all around his ears and neck… 10 minutes later, out like a light… I fully admit to using this often haha!

I know many parents who put this on their kids when they are acting up and being bad, calms them down and knocks them out… it’s amazing, see I know you’re sitting there going “I need this” and YES, you do…

Do you want to know the most amazing thing? It comes in the Premium Starter Kit! Can you believe it? Yeah it’s mind blowing, I know!

PanAway

panawayheader

PanAway is a fantastic blend that was created by D. Gary Young following a severe injury. It was specifically designed to deal with pain and inflammation…. this oil is powerful enough to even help ease arthritis pain! It helps to bring oxygen to the surface tissue, which can accelerate healing! Many people successfully use this to rid themselves of not only arthritis pain, but neuropathy, severe headaches, plantar fasciitis, torn or sprained muscles, ligaments, and tendons… the uses go on and on!  It’s pretty amazing stuff!

Here are some ways you can use PanAway!

Progessence Plus

ppheader

Here’s what Young Living has to say about this fantastic blend!

Progesterone is a hormone found in both men and women that is generally associated with women’s health. It plays an important role in influencing menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause. Genetic makeup, environmental influences, and other factors can negatively impact progesterone levels, which may lead to other imbalances in the body.

Progessence™ Plus serum, intended only for woman, is a good option for those looking to supplement progesterone levels. Expertly formulated by D. Gary Young and Dr. Dan Purser, Progessence Plus takes pure, USP-grade, super-micronized progesterone from wild yams and combines it with vitamin E and an essential oil serum to easily penetrate the skin for improved delivery. Containing frankincense, bergamot, and peppermint essential oils to aid in absorption, this product does not require the cycling of application sites as do most other progesterone products!

This oil has probably been the one I have been most excited about… I have PCOS and do not have any sort of cycle at all without either synthetic progesterone medication, or birth control pills… however I hate what each of those does to my body, and how incredibly sick they make me, so I was on a mission to find something that would help me, and was all natural! Little did I know that while I was getting into Young Living oils, that they had exactly what I was looking for!

I started using this oil around 6 weeks ago… now keep in mind that I do not have any kind of cycle AT ALL on my own… 3 weeks after I started using it I had a 2-3 day cycle… now we are 3 weeks after that, and I am having my second cycle!  This is AMAZING!  My body has responded so well to this!  I use it every single day, I just put a roller top on my bottle and I run it over the insides of my elbows and down the sides of my neck… I use it 2-3 times per day…

Another amazing thing, when I got mine, I also ordered one for a very dear friend who has endometriosis, and when I checked in with her today, she said all her symptoms were very much improved!  So I know from experience now that it not only helped me with my PCOS, but it also helped another person with endometriosis… I had heard from others that this stuff was very effective, but I’m the type of person that I need to test stuff out before I fully believe it… and boy, I am a believer now!

So thank you to D. Gary Young, and Dr. Dan Purser for your amazing oil blend! It’s been life changing for me! ❤

****Update as of 9/18/14**** I am still having my cycle EVERY SINGLE MONTH!  How AMAZING is that?  It’s almost like clockwork, every 3 weeks or so Aunt Flow visits me, I feel so normal… it’s amazing. I can’t get over how this little bottle of miraculous goodness has completely changed my body, and my life, for the better.

Why Young Living?

whyyounglivingheader

So you might be sitting there asking yourself, why should I choose Young Living over the cheaper drug store variety? I am going to tell you exactly why!

Young Living Essential Oils are always going to be 100% pure, it will never have to be something you worry about again. They have had nothing at all added, and nothing at all taken away. They will never be synthetic in any way, shape, or form. They are 100% organic!  Over 90% of all the oils labeled as “essential” in the USA are fragrance grade and are not suitable for healing applications. Legally there only has to be 10% of the actual plant oil for something to be considered 100%, that’s pretty scary… so I like not ever having to worry about fillers being in my Young Living oils!

whyyounglivingreasonsV2

Young Living owns their own farms, where they oversee the entire operation, from the time the seed is placed into the ground, until the oil is sealed into the bottle, hence the Seed to Seal guarantee… You’ll also see there that they only use the first distillation of oils, that ensures that the oils are always potent. The best comparison I can think of is K-Cup coffee… the first time you use it, that’s the same as the first distillation, a nice strong cup of joe… now if you leave that same K-Cup in, and make 4 more cups of coffee with it, that’s the same as the cheaper oils you can find in Whole Foods and places like that… plants can be distilled multiple times, and even though they aren’t as potent, just like your 4th cup of coffee is still technically coffee, they are still considered to be essential oils.  Would you want that? I didn’t think so!

Frankincense

frankincenselanding

I’m going to be completely honest, this oil rocks my socks… completely. When I first smelled frank, I did not like it at all… however after using it for about a month, it is probably one of my most favorite smells. It’s great for almost everything!

Frankincense is a very powerful mood enhancer, you can either diffuse it, or wear it like a perfume! I use it every day… to me, this oil is super balancing emotionally, it helps keep me calm and relaxed when I start to get worked up about something. It also promotes the regeneration of healthy cells… so it’s great for your skin and it can help with those wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars!  Frankincense can help ease tight muscles, so if you get a cramp, apply a drop or two and be amazed!

There have been MANY documented cases of people successfully reducing lumps, cysts, moles, and warts with this amazing oil.

There is also a TON of scientific research going on right now about frankincense and its effects on cancer. Pretty awesome right?

Lemon

lemonlanding

Lemon is SO uplifting and refreshing! It can raise your spirits when diffused, and help you wake up in the mornings! I love to use lemon in my dishwasher, garbage disposal, and my washing machine to keep them smelling fresh and clean! Just put a couple drops in and turn them on! One word of caution with lemon, is that it is a citrus oil, and can detox plastic making it appear to melt, so make sure if you’re using lemon, you’re doing so in glassware! 🙂 Lemon also does a number on nausea, I have several pregnant friends who swear by this stuff! And if you have that pot or pan that just will NOT come clean, try some lemon on it, it’s a powerful degreaser, and can also remove stuff like gum and other adhesives from hair, carpet, clothes, etc.

Tips from Young Living:

  • Use 1–2 drops to remove gum, oil, grease spots, glue or adhesive, and crayon from most surfaces.
  • Combine 2–3 drops with water in a spray bottle to help cleanse and sanitize surfaces.
  • Place a drop on oily skin or blemishes to help balance oil glands and minimize oil production.
  • Add to water or a smoothie for a refreshing pick-me-up.
  • Diffuse to help replenish your mind, body, and spirit.
  • Place a few drops on a cotton ball and put in the refrigerator or trash can to help eliminate odors.

Tips from Young Living Facebook Fans:

“I use Lemon on stains on laundry. It pulls anything out of the clothes, including grease, dirt, etc. Plus, it brightens whites on the clothes lines in the summer.” – Ashley N., YL Executive

“I use a couple of drops in a bowl of water to wash my fruit. It makes strawberries taste amazing!” – Sierra P., YL Distributor

“To give myself a lift, I like to put a drop or two in my palm, rub my hands together, and then inhale the wonderful scent.” – Susan H., YL Distributor

Peppermint

peppermintheader

Ahhh peppermint! So cool, so refreshing!  I looove this stuff, no seriously… I really honestly love this stuff. If ever you are feeling nauseous, put a couple drops in your hand, along with some carrier oil and rub it on your tummy, it’s almost like magic!  Another great use is for headaches, you can either sniff it directly from the bottle, diffuse it, or apply some to your temples or back of your neck. The relief is very quick! One thing I think everybody would love to know about this oil is that it is GREAT if you’re going to be outdoors in the heat… put a drop or two on the back of your neck, and the back of your knees, you’ll stay MUCH cooler!

Peppermint Tips from Young Living:

  • Rub one drop on the temples, forehead, over the sinuses (careful to avoid contact with your eyes), and on the back of the neck to relieve head pressure.*
  • Place 2 drops on the tongue and rub another drop of oil under the nose to help improve concentration and alertness.
  • Apply to the back of the neck and shoulders throughout the day to keep energy up.
  • Diffuse or inhale mid-morning to curb the desire to snack.
  • Inhale or rub a drop on your abdomen to soothe minor stomach discomfort.*

Peppermint Tips from Young Living Facebook Fans:

“I keep a small spray bottle on my desk at work with peppermint oil and water. When I’m feeling foggy or tired (not often), I spritz a little around my head and in the air over my desk. It’s a good perk up and better than soda or candy!” – Teresa T., Distributor

“Put a drop on your tongue for fresh breath.” – Lou B., Star

“I found out by accident that it is great to remove spruce gum from hair and clothing. The spruce gum just brushes right out.” – Julie L., Distributor

“I love peppermint oil and so do my cats. I put one drop on a cat toy, and one of the cats starts licking it right away.” – Jeannette S., Star

Lavender

lavenderheader

Lavender is one of my favorite oils, it’s fantastic. Probably one of the most versatile oils out there! For me, I use it in conjunction with Cedarwood to get an almost coma-like sleep (it really is that fantastic guys… I promise)… I also use it anytime at all that my allergies are flaring up, I just rub it across my cheekbones and nose and I’m literally better just like that. I am forever amazed by the power of this oil.

Tips from Young Living:

  • Soothe minor burns by applying 2–3 drops to the affected area
  • Rub on dry or chapped skin to moisturize the affected area
  • Add a few drops to a cotton ball and place it in closets and drawers to scent linens and repel moths and insects
  • Place a few drops on a wet cloth or dryer sheet to deodorize and freshen your laundry
  • Rub a few drops onto your hand and spread over a pillow
  • Diffuse Lavender essential oil to set the mood for a baby shower or social gathering
  • Diffuse or inhale Lavender essential oil to calm your mind, body, and spirit after a hard day’s work

Tips from Young Living Facebook Fans:

Becoming A Young Living Member!

Let’s talk about becoming a Young Living Member, now don’t go into a complete panic attack. This is painless, I promise. First off, you are NOT signing your life away if you become a member. If you would like to purchase Young Living Essential Oils, you can do so by ordering retail from a distributor, OR you can “Become a Member” and get the oils at 24% off. Notice I said MEMBER. Young Living may use the terminology “distributor”, but never think of yourself as that unless you are WANTING to do this as a business. If you DO NOT want to do this as a business, think of yourself as a “Member”. Once you buy your starter kit, you are NEVER required to tell others about Young Living. You simply are now able to purchase at the discounted price. Think of this like a SAMS Club or  COSTCO membership. You pay a small fee to become a member to get cheaper prices, the only thing different is SAMS or COSTCO will give you a card, YL gives you a kit of oils and a diffuser!

starterkit

This is the kit I recommend EVERYONE to purchase! It’s the Premium Everyday Oils Kit for $160. It is the kit of all kits. There are other options to choose from, and I will mention them below, but I PROMISE you, this $160 kit is the MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

The kit comes with the following:

5ml bottles of the following essential oils:

You also get:

  • Young Living’s Aroma Diffuser (Retail on this is $117.11 folks!)
  • Aroma Glide roller fitment (turns any of your oils into a roller bottle for easier application!)
  • 10 sample packets of the top five oils (Lavender, Peppermint, Peace & Calming, Lemon, and Thieves)
  • 2 NingXia Red 2-oz. samples

Not only is this an amazing deal, but it gives you the ability to try many oils! The Frankincense and PanAway are right at $70 each at the DISCOUNTED price, and you get them in the kit! It’s crazy awesome! Do you see now why I recommend this kit? You can’t beat getting 11 oils, 2 samples each of the top five oils AND the aroma diffuser for that price. The other two kits they offer for $40 and $75 just don’t make sense to me. The $40 kit comes with the samples, but NOT the diffuser OR the set of 10 oils pictured above. The $75 kit comes with the home diffuser (covers a smaller area), samples, and stress away but NO kit of 10 oils. My issue with the $75 kit, so you have the diffuser, but only a 5ml bottle of stress away and some sample packs to diffuse, you TOTALLY will have to be buying more oils to use that diffuser, so why not just get 10 oils for $85 more. The only time I recommend the $40 kit is if someone is anxious to get started and budget just doesn’t allow the $160 kit. I will tell you, EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has ordered the $40 kit under me, ends up getting the $160 kit that month or the following month, without fail. So again, if budget allows, the larger kit is just the BEST VALUE.

To keep your 24% discount past 1 year, you’ll need to purchase $50 worth of product each calendar year. If you don’t, your account just goes inactive.

Okay, so now that you’re NOT freaked out anymore about becoming a member, let’s tell you how to sign up! There’s a fun visual to follow here or detailed step-by-step instructions here. Use whatever is easiest for you.
