My November Essential Rewards Order

I couldn’t resist taking advantage of this months promo. With over $250 worth of FREE products, it is the biggest promo ever!!! Plus, with winter approaching I needed to stock up on some of my winter must haves anyway! So now for the fun part, here’s what I ordered.

Some of our Winter Wellness Favorites

Two bottles of R.C. essential oil because it’s awesome! With three different kinds of eucalyptus, spruce, and cypress this blend is a go to for our family. We like to dilute R.C. and apply it to the chest area for comfort.

Immu Power essential oil is a power house blend of Hyssop, Mountain Savory, Cistus, Camphor, Frankincense, Oregano, Clove, Cumin, and Dorado Azul. It’s not the best smelling oil, but it works really well to support a healthy immune system. So I usually dilute and apply Immu Power to our feet.

Raven essential oil blend is similar to R.C., but a little more powerful in my opinion. Often times I will alternate the two. Raven contains Ravensara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus Radiata. Again, we dilute and apply raven to our chests for comfort.

Eucalyptus Blue essential oil has a rich calming aroma. This variety of eucalyptus comes from Ecuador and I find it to be the gentlest when compared to other eucalyptus. When I want to really relax and treat myself I’ll draw a hot bath and add a few drops of eucalyptus blue to two cups of Epsom Salts.

Purification essential oil blend seems to be everybody’s favorite! Who would have thought that this blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle would SMELL SO GOOD! Not only does it smell fresh and clean it puts Febreeze to shame!!!

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier goes everywhere with us! So even though I still have some left from my last order I wanted a back up bottle. I like the bigger bottle for refilling the original smaller bottles that I put in my purse, in my car, in the diaper bag, in the gym bag… everywhere! My husband likes the small bottles too since they fit in his pants pocket without being bulky. Works great, smells great, plus it’s non-drying, and free of triclosan (the endocrine disrupting ingredient found in most other hand purifers).

Balance Complete is back in stock!!!! I love this stuff and my two year old does too! When she asks for her shakes this is what she gets. I blend it up with almond milk and frozen berries. She thinks she’s getting a treat, but its actually incredibly healthy and nutritious! Mom Win!!! 😉 Here’s the description straight from YL’s website, “Balance Complete™ is a super-food-based meal replacement that is both a powerful nutritive energizer and a cleanser. Offering the benefits of Ningxia wolfberry powder, brown rice bran, barley grass, extra virgin coconut oil, aloe vera, cinnamon powder, and our premium whey protein blend, Balance Complete is high in fiber, high in protein, and contains the good fats, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals needed for a nutritionally dynamic meal. Balance Complete also features Young Living’s proprietary V-Fiber™ blend, which supplies an amazing 11 grams of fiber per serving, absorbs toxins, and satisfies the appetite while balancing the body’s essential requirements.*”

I’m excited to try these products for the first time!

Have you noticed how many of the products we use everyday contain harmful chemicals? Me too! Over the years I have been slowly swapping out the personal care products we use that were filled with toxic chemicals to products made without harmful ingredients. This can be hard to do, time consuming, and expensive! But since finding Young Living this task has become easy. All of their products are made using only truly natural ingredients – NO TOXIC cheap chemical ingredients allowed!!! Now for the price, yes they can be more expensive, but with my wholesale discount I save 24% and I’m an essential rewards member so I earn 20% back on the PV of everything I order to use towards the free products of my choice! And boy is that fun when I redeem my points!  Just thought I’d get that out there instead of gushing about how happy it makes me that all of these products are free of harmful ingredients.

Valor Bar Soap – The first thing I wanted to do when unpacking my order was open up the Valor bar soap and smell it. Ahhh, so good! Yep, it smells just like valor essential oil. Valor has the most interesting aroma to me. It’s hard to describe, kind of masculine, but not in an overpowering kind of way. I actually bought this one for my husband. Valor is known for instilling courage and confidence. He has a demanding new job and I thought he’d like starting his day covered in Valor. He really likes it and I like how good he smells after getting out of the shower! I see a promotion in his future. 😉

Evening Peace Bath & Shower Gel has been out of stock for a while, so I wanted to see what made it so popular. I have been meaning to make my own DIY shower gel, but haven’t found the time to do that. I love taking baths and will do anything I can to make them relaxing and luxurious! Hey it’s the little in things in life, right?! This bath gel smells so good and its not drying to my skin like my previous bath gel. It’s a winner, but Istill do want to tackle my own diy bath gel…one of these days. 😉

Sensation Hand & Body Lotion  – This lotion is amazing! I wash my hands a lot and I don’t really like to use lotion through the day because it’s either too greasy or doesn’t absorb quick enough for me to move onto the next task. I’m thrilled to report this is my favorite lotion ever! Sensation hand & body lotion absorbs quickly, smells great, and truly moisturizes! Seriously, put this on your Christmas list ladies.

Not new, but necessary!

Aroma Guard Mountain Mint Deodorant is the first and only all natural deodorant that my husband will use. As they say in the south, “bless his heart”, because I made him try many through the years and they just didn’t work. So this is one product I routinely buy for him.

Now for all the Freebies, over $250 worth of awesomeness!

  • Full sized bottle of Ortho Sport Massage Oil
  • 15 ml bottle of Christmas Spirit essential oil
  • 15 ml bottle of Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) essential oil
  • 15 ml bottle of Orange essential oil
  • 5 ml bottle of Nutmeg essential oil
  • and a 5 ml bottle of Sacred Frankincense (Boswellia sacra)!

This promo was like Christmas coming early for me and I want you to have all these gifts too! Two different Frankencense for FREE, seriously? Amazing!!! And all the other goodies are perfect for this time of year. But this post has gotten very long and there are all different qualifying PV levels, so to learn more about all these goodies and how to qualify read my previous post for all the details on Novembers Promo from Young Living.

Happy Oiling!

My latest order arrived September 2015

This months order is a mix of tried and true oils and products and some brand new ones I’m excited to try out. Young Living recently released new products and there were a few I just had to check out immediately! Because, I place my order through essential rewards I earned over $140.00 worth of free products! I don’t always place large orders, but when I do, I get lots of FREE products! 😉

This month I received 4 for free, plus I accrued points to use for future free products of my choice. If you’re not on essential rewards yet, you’re missing out.

september 2015 er order

Breath Again

Breath Again Roll-On is great for supporting a healthy respiratory system and its so easy to use, since it comes diluted and with a roller ball already attached. I was running low and my husband and daughter both use this one. Luckily, my order arrived just in time! My husband had just used the last of it. And with winter approaching I wanted to have this one in stock.

Cypress

Cypress essential oil is great to have on hand if have you have little ones. It’s similar to eucalyptus oils, but gentler. I originally started using cypress essential oil with my daughter when she was around 16 months old. I soon realized when I was looking up different recipes that cypress essential oil is beneficial for many things. It’s also, really great for oily skin. So again, since I was running low I needed to stock up on this gem.

Oregano

Oregano essential oil is an oil I just started using a few months ago. I still have half a bottle left, but with winter coming up I did not want to worry about this one being out of stock when I’ll need it most! Oregano essential oil is known for its benefits to supporting a healthy immune system. It’s really funny how things work out for me when I’m putting my essential rewards order together, because I like to think into the future and what I’ll need before I need it based on the upcoming season. I ordered oregano in the middle of the summer thinking it would be good to have around November, but I actually needed it just when it arrived! LOVE when that happens! I’m a stay at home Mom, so we’ve avoided a lot of the common issues you face once kids are in daycare or school settings (my daughter is only two). But, I just joined the YMCA and they have child care while you work out! YAY. 🙂 So I just started leaving Viv in their child care while Mommy does some much needed yoga! Oregano essential oil helps her little body stay strong while she plays with all the little p tree dishes. 😉

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier (The Big Bottle)

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier is tops on my list above all the other commercial hand purifers because it DOES NOT contain triclosan, which is an endocrine disruptor. Simply put it cleans your hands without side effects! Safe and effective, yes please and thank you! Up until now though YL only sold their waterless hand purifier in small purse size bottles. This new 7.6 oz bottle is perfect for my husbands desk at work, which is just where it sits now. Hand washing with soap and water is the best, but in my opinion thieves waterless hand purifier is the next best thing when a sink and soap are too far away.

Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil is one of those oils that quickly won me over after first receiving it in my Premium Starter Kit. We’ve all seen dishes of peppermint candies at restaurants and why do you think that is? Well, I never really thought about it until I learned of peppermints prowess for supporting a healthy digestive response within our bodies. I use peppermint essential oil mixed with water daily as a mouth wash, and it leaves my breathe minty fresh and really clean feeling. My husband thinks I’m nuts because after I swish it around my mouth I swallow it too. Fresh breath and digestive support… bam double duty! Have you ever noticed your traditional bottle of mouth wash says, DO NOT SWALLOW? Hmmm….. how toxic is it? Plus, the mouthwash I used to use was blue. How is a chemical dyed blue mouth wash helping to keep my teeth white? So I’m happy to keep it simple and natural.

Thieves Spray

Thieves Spray has been an invaluable tool in my Mom belt! My daughter has a fit whenever I want to wash her favorite stuffed animal. This bear won her heart and I could not find another one. So tearing her away from ballerina bear is basically impossible. Since washing her bear as much as I would like is not an option I spray that sucker down just about everyday! Thieves spray is my safe alternative to Lysol. Yeah, Lysol is no good and and can actually cause respiratory issues… google it. And since this bear is in my daughters face everyday literally Thieves spray has given me a safe alternative and peace of mind when it comes to my most prized possession… Vivian!

Pure Protein Complete

Pure Protein Complete – Vanilla Spice was released this Summer at Young Living’s convention. To be honest the only reason I ordered this was because Balance complete was out of stock (they are currently reformulating the recipe). I was impressed with the grams of protein it provided – almost double to what balance complete had provided, but I knew I liked the taste of Balance Complete and was worried as I always am with protein powders that it will just taste funky or powdery. Well YL knocked it out of the park! So much so that I want to order their Pure Protein Complete – Chocolate next! I’m not a big cook so being able to replace a meal with Pure Protein Complete works for me. Here’s my recipe for a fabulous smoothie, I’ve done this with Balance Complete and the Pure Protein Complete – Vannila Spice. And it is delicious, smooth and creamy!

  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1/2 banana ( I peel and freeze mine just before they get too ripe)
  • 1/2 Cup frozen berries
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseed
  • 2 scoops PPC or BC
  • Combine all ingredients in blender and blend for 2 minutes

Wolf Berry Crisp

Wolf Berry Crisp bars are a meal replacement bar that I’ve been wanting to try. I thought I would send the box of bars to work with my husband and he could keep them at his desk for days when he’s too busy for a real lunch. Well, they were so good I ate them all… all but one! I did let him have one! 🙂 So I will be ordering these again. 🙂 I thought they would be hard since the’re called “crisp bars”, but they’re soft, chewy, sweet, delicious, and nutritious!

Cool Azul Sports Gel

Cool Azul Sports Gel is one of the new products YL recently released. In my opinion it’s very similar to Ortho Ease or Ortho Sport massage oil, but it’s non-greasy. The base is aloe vera gel and it contains 10% essential oils, so be sure to mix it up before applying. A perfect addition to the gym bag.

Thieves Laundry Soap

Thieves Laundry Soap was not pictured in the graphic above because it arrived a few days late. It was just released and is already so popular it was on back order! I’ve always used ALL Free and Clear. I have sensitive skin and had a bad reaction to regular Tide as a child. So I thought I was avoiding any bad stuff since my detergent did not have fragrance. I really hadn’t considered how many toxic ingredients were in laundry detergent, until I  learned about it, and then I thought about it, and it made sense. Just like the lotion I use enters my body through my skin, the detergent I wash our clothes in leaves a residue on the clothes that we wear which rubs against our bodies all day long and well now you see where I’m going. So there was a recipe for making your own thieves laundry soap that I wanted to try but never got around to, so this new product launch made me really happy! It’s concentrated so you use about 1 tbsp per load and it works for HE washers!

Now for all the freebies I received!

Lemon

Lemon essential oil is one of my favorites! I use it everyday, so getting a free bottle is awesome! Of all the oils that came in my Premium Starter Kit I probably reorder lemon the most.

Aroma Life

Aroma Life essential oil is one that I haven’t tried yet, but I’m happy to have a free bottle. So I looked it up on YL’s website and here is what they have to say, “Aroma Life™ combines the harmonizing effects of ylang ylang with known powerhouses cypress, helichrysum, and marjoram. Pulsing with life, this vibrant blend energizes your life force. It is best applied over heart energy – front and/or back. ” After looking at this list of ingredients, I think this oil would be great applied on the face.

Tangerine

Tangerine essential oil smells and tastes so yummy! This freebies was awesome because it came in the larger 15 ml bottle…yay!

Mineral Essence

Mineral Essence is a supplement from YL that I have heard lots of good things about, but had never tried. It turns out that many of us are not getting the minerals our body needs naturally from our diet. Whether its the soil our food is grown in that is depleted or we just aren’t eating properly. So when I saw this was one of the freebies I was excited to have this one. Here is how the YL website describes this supplement. “Mineral Essence™ is a balanced, full-spectrum ionic mineral complex enhanced with essential oils. According to twotime Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling PhD. “You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.” Ionic minerals are the most fully and quickly absorbed form of minerals available.”

Happy Oiling,

Visit the Ylang Ylang Farm in Ecuador

Today is Valentines Day, Happy Valentines Day to you!!! Being the day of love, I thought it would be fun to show you why I love Young Living. It’s a simple, but important reason, their dedication to providing us with the highest quality essential oils! The amount of thought and care that goes into each bottle we receive is amazing. It may seem a little nuts to be talking about love in regards to a company on Valentines Day. But the truth is, I LOVE YOUNG LIVING!!!! I love the freedom their products have given me to take control of our health and swap out all the everyday toxic products we had been using. If you’ve ever tried replacing toxic for natural products, while not spending a fortune. You will understand my great admiration for this company!

The truth is, the essential oil industry has very loose regulations, little to none to be exact. Therefore, knowing where your essential oils come from, and how the company is producing these oils from the seed that is planted all the way till it is bottled is worth knowing. Just like anything else you’re putting on or in your body you want to know exactly what you’re getting, right?! Young Living is completely transparent, anyone can visit their farms and take part in the harvesting.  But, that’s not quite realistic for all of us with our busy lives to just pick up and visit the farms before we decide on an essential oil company to trust.

So I thought it would be fun to take a behind the scenes tour. February is when the harvesting of Ylang Ylang begins. If you haven’t tried Ylang Ylang yet, its intoxicating, a truly floral aroma. I love to wear this as a perfume. It helps to elevate my mood and my husband always seems to take notice and finds me a little more attractive when I do. In this video you will get to see where the Ylang Ylang that ends up in your bottle of essential oil starts out, at the farm in Ecuador. How each flower to be distilled is chosen and more. Not all essential oil companies have controls set in place to ensure the standards that Young Living guarantees. OK, enough of me… just watch the video, before I give it all away! 🙂
