Muscle Support

One of the things I love most about being part of the Young Living Essential Oils Community is the sharing of product use that goes on. I share with coworkers, friends and people I follow on Facebook and Instagram.

These products in the picture are used for muscle support.

The Ortho Ease was recommended to me by a friend who’s son is in my daughter’s high school class. Both of our kids do marching band in the fall and play sports in the spring. My friend’s son plays lacrosse. My daughter runs track. My friend told me about Ortho Ease at the beginning of the season and how much her son enjoys this massage oil after practice and games. So I purchased some. My daughter enjoyed using it after track and I use it regularly to soothe my leg muscles after my 4-5 mile walks. It’s a must have.

A few weeks ago I fell asleep with my right arm behind my head. Ouch! My shoulder was not a happy camper and it hurt to even lift my arm. From sharing, I learned of a 5 oil blend that an oily friend of mine uses. I did not have 2 of the oils they used but I did have Peppermint, Copaiba and Panaway, which are included in the Premium Starter Kit.  So, I mixed these three oils with the Ortho-Ease, massaged my shoulder, did some quality stretches and my shoulder was back in business in no time. Before my oily life, I would have popped some Ibuprofen and hoped for the best. This time I didn’t use any Ibuprofen. As a matter of fact, since I discovered this gem of a blend, my Ibuprofen use is nearly nonexistent. Just saying.

How About Some Better Sleep?

Sleep is so important to our health. I, for one, am someone who needs adequate sleep to function. Some people can get away with not getting enough sleep, not me. One of my favorite things about being part of the Oily Community is the sharing that goes on. I saw this oil combination on a social media post and I’ve used it a few times now. I absolutely love it. Last night I used this oil combination in my Desert Mist Diffuser.

4 drops Lavender. 4 drops Vetiver. 

Lavender is used to support insomnia, nervous tension, emotional support and calming. You can diffuse it, you can put it on your body or you can put it in your bath. If you don’t know what Lavender smells like, lol walk into a spa.

Vetiver. This is a new favorite of mine. It has a real woodsy smell too. I totally dig it. This oil has multiple purposes but to support a good nights sleep it supports anxiety, depression, insomnia.

Sunday night I did not sleep well. Yesterday I was outside all day in the heat, I walked 5 miles and by the end of the day my body was ready to crumble. I slept a beautiful 10 hours with this Lavender/Vetiver combo last night and I am good to go!

Here’s how I use Ningxia Red. As you know, I am a preop nurse. I wake up 0415 to report to my 0600-1530 shift four days per week at the hospital. I never get enough sleep before work…..ever. On mornings where the night before I had something to attend outside of the house in the evening or I really really didn’t get enough sleep for whatever reason, when I wake up my body is screaming for extra nutrients. Insert Ningxia Red.

Thieves Household Cleaner. Do you ever spray your countertops or your bathroom with a product that contains bleach or some other horrible chemical and think, “what am I putting into my family’s bodies?” I cleaned my kitchen a week ago with this for the first time and I feel much better knowing that there are no toxins near the food my family and my dog eats.

As always, I am not here to sell you anything. I am here to guide you into a journey of wellness and healthy living. Click here to start your journey.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

When my kids were little we used to enjoy Sunday mornings with them in the kitchen. We’d have the Paul Harvey show on AM Radio 1360, my husband would cook a delicious breakfast and we’d eat, drink coffee, read, and enjoy our children. Back then we couldn’t even imagine what it would be like when they were older. Now the kids are young adults, a junior in college and a junior in high school and we don’t have as many of those Sunday mornings anymore. So when the kids are home on Sunday mornings and we can be lazy, one of my favorite things to do on Sunday mornings is to put the diffuser on in the kitchen.

Amongst the many benefits of essential oils, some of my favorites are the support of emotional wellness and stress relief they provide. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy precious family time than to insert aromatherapy into the picture. The first time I inserted aromatherapy into family time was Christmas dinner. I always host my parents and my mother in law. I diffused Christmas Spirit. It was a huge hit!

So let’s take about this combination in the picture. I have recently treated myself to the Desert Mist Diffuser. This thing functions as a humidifier, atomizer and aroma diffuser all by simply pressing a button. It can diffuse 5-6 hours on high mode, 8 hours on low mode or 10 hours on intermittent mode. In addition, it has 11 different light settings with colors! Personally, I love everything about this diffuser. The oils in the picture next to the diffuser are Peace and Calming II and Citrus Fresh. Peace and Calming II is a blend of 10 different essential oils. It supports calming the mind and providing a sense of well being. The other oil, Citrus Fresh, is a blend of six essential oils. It acts as an air purifier as well as provides support for anxiety, and helps to promote feelings of creativity and well being.

More about the oils themselves. I use Peace and Calming II a few days a week. Life is messy and I take what I can get to feel centered at all times.  Citrus Fresh is great for when you are cleaning your house and you want to top it off with a fresh scent in the room.

So many oils, so many uses. Keep reading. Happy Sunday.

 

 

 

Getting to Know the Oils and Getting Started

In order to become a Young Living member, you must purchase a Premium Starter Kit (PSK) In my next post I will talk about the different PSKs available and show you how to become a member.

DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: Young Living Essential Oils are not used to CURE any diseases or ailments. They are used to support body systems to promote and maintain health and wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

In this post I’m going to talk about the 11 essential oils that are included in the PSK and their uses. I’ve used every single one of these oils and while when you first see them, you’ll wonder what in the world you are going to do with them but you’ll figure it out quickly.

Familiarizing yourself with the oils in the PSK and what you can do with them is only the beginning of an exciting life long journey into health and wellness. The more you use the oils and other YL products, the more you share information with others who use them, the more you read YL’s blog and social media, the more you learn. It’s an ongoing process and learning experience. Once you start, you’ll never look back.

You’ll also learn which oils your body needs in a given day. One day you might need the Digize for that belly bomber cheesesteak sub you chowed down but the next day you might need a different oil for something else.

Lavender 5ml (retail price for 15ml  31.91, wholesale 24.25.) This oil has multiple uses. You can diffuse it in your room for a calming aroma. You’ll feel like you are in a spa! You can put a few drops in the bathtub. You can mix it with your favorite moisturizer and put it on your face to promote healthy skin.

Frankincense 5ml (retail price for 15ml 99.34, wholesale 75.50) You can use this during prayer and meditation. You can use this when you want to feel more grounded. You can Diffuse it. You can mix it with your favorite moisturizer to support your skin.

Citrus Fresh 5ml (retail price $20.72, wholesale price $15.75) Diffuse this to freshen up a room that you think smells stale.

Pan Away 5ml (retail price $47.67, wholesale $36.25 rub this on muscles of neck and back for a soothing effect.

Raven (15ml retail $47.04, wholesale $35.75)- you can rub this on your chest and throat when you need some extra support in your respiratory system.

Stress Away (retail $40.13, wholesale $30.50). You can diffuse this. You can put this on your wrists, behind your ears or on your forehead. I wear this on nights before I work. It gives me the feeling of well being and provides a restful sleep.

Vitality Oils are oils you can ingest.

Thieves Vitality (15ml Retail $45.72, wholesale $34.75) You can rub this on your feet, diffuse, or drop it in your tea when you feel like your immune system can use a boost.

Peppermint Vitality (5ml retail $13.49, wholesale $10.25) this oil has multiple functions. It provides a soothing effect on muscles, can be used for intestinal support and has antiseptic properties.

Lemon Vitality (5ml retail $8.22, wholesale $6.25) another multi use oil. Diffuse for fresh scented room, put it in your water to liven up the taste, put it in your skin lotion.

Copaiba Vitality (5ml retail $28.75, wholesale $22.00) this oil supports nearly every system of the body. Using it in combination of other oils, enhances the effects of the other oils.

Digize Vitality (5ml retail $18.42, wholesale $14.00)- worried about getting an upset tummy after eating greasy belly bomber meal? Rub some around your belly button or drop some in your favorite tea too soothe your tummy.

How Do I become a Young Living Member?

In order to become a Young Living Member, you must order a Premium Starter Kit (PSK).

  • Benefits of Young Living Membership:
  • Enjoy 24% off retail pricing
  • Participate in the compensation plan and earn compensation just by  sharing Young Living
  • Qualify for exclusive Young Living member events throughout the world
  • Enjoy the benefits of Essential Rewards

I won’t lie, when I saw the price of the PSK I was in sticker shock  but in reality if you add up the retail price for all the items in the PSK, that price exceeds the cost of the PSK. If you went on the Young Living website to order oils and you were not a member, you’d be paying the retail price which is higher than the wholesale price you’d pay if you were a member. If you were to add up the retail cost of the oils alone, not even including a diffuser, you’ll soon see that it exceeds the price of the premium starter kit.

As an Enroller/Sponsor, I make it even easier for you to get started because once you enroll with me, I make a phone call to Young Living customer service to put a $25 credit on your account to be used for future purchases AND I mail you a FREE copy of Essential Oils Pocket Reference Guide Seventh Edition. You will then be able to take advantage of whole sale prices on oils and products, versus retail prices. There is a considerable difference. I will then continue to be your guide and help you navigate your way through the world of essential oils and health and wellness.
