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,

Reveal Radiant Skin and banish breakouts with this all natural DIY scrub and mask

I’m a DIY girl at heart and I LOVE making my own products! It’s an easy way to avoid toxic chemicals and save money. Plus, it’s FUN! Now that we’re in the swing of winter, my skin needed some extra love. The dry air tends to make my skin look dull and feel tight, so I knew I needed to create something that would exfoliate, nourish, and moisturize my skin. I have acne prone skin, so I wanted to address that too. I chose each ingredient to address these needs and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This Face and body scrub/face mask has revealed a radiant and clear complexion for me, which is why I just LOVE this simple creation so much I had to share it with you! I have used this for about a month a few times a week. Now, I’m not one to wear makeup everyday. Usually when I’m out running errands and catch a glimpse of my face in the mirror sans make up, lets just say I’m not thrilled, but yesterday I caught a glimpse of myself in the rearview mirror on a bright sunny day and I couldn’t believe how nice my skin looked.

How to make your own all natural Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub

Whenever I make my own products, I like to keep it simple, using as few ingredients as possible. Each ingredient has to be high quality and serve a purpose. For this recipe I was thrilled because I already had everything in my kitchen (yes, I keep a bottle of lemon essential oil in my kitchen and one in my bathroom too!)

Make your own sugar scrub with Lemon Essential Oil from Young Living

If the dry winter air has been wreaking havoc on your skin or you would like a natural way to combat breakouts, you have to give this a try!

Here is a list of what you’ll need to make this Lemon Honey Sugar Scrub and face mask.

Organic Cane Sugar – Sugar is a natural exfoliator, as well as a natural source of glycolic acid, which serves to even out skin tone, cleanse pores, and improves overall appearance by sloughing off dead skin cells.

Organic or Non-GMO, Cold Processed Extra Virgin Olive Oil –  (Did you know that the purest and best quality olives oil comes from California?) – Olive oil heals acne scarring, and is high in vitamin E which is soothing, moisturizing, and healing to the skin, as well as being high in antioxidants which prevents premature aging of the skin.

Raw Organic Honey – (I recommend using raw honey because it contains natural antibacterial properties, enzymes, and probiotics that are good for the skin.) – The antibacterial properties benefit acne prone skin by reducing breakouts. Honey is a natural humectant so it locks water into the skin keeping the complexion hydrated. Also, a natural source of antioxidants which aids the skin from premature aging.

One Organic Lemon – Lemon juice is incredibly beneficial to the skin. It helps to diminish scars and age spots, heal acne, exfoliate, and brighten your complexion.

Young Living Lemon Essential Oil – Is cold pressed from the lemon rind, it has a strong, purifying citrus scent which is revitalizing and uplifting. It does a good job of covering up the olive oil smell, which I’m not a big fan of. Don’t tell my italian relatives I said that ;). I chose this oil for more than its fragrance though. Young Living’s Lemon essential oil contains 68% d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant. Great for reducing wrinkles, minimizing sun and age spots, as well as combating acne. By combining this essential oil with the lemon juice you’re getting the benefits of the entire lemon.

An Airtight Glass Container

I bought mine at the container store, here is a link to the one I used.

Instructions:

Add a 1/2 cup of Sugar to a glass bowl, pour in 1/4 cup olive oil, and mix with a fork. You can use more or less olive oil depending on the consistency you want. Add in a heaping TBSP of honey, half the juice of one lemon and mix well, again you can adjust how much honey and lemon juice you use, last add in 10 drops of lemon essential oil and mix. Then transfer to your airtight glass container! Voila, get ready for gorgeous luxurious feeling skin!!!

Mix up your own sugar scub using Young Living Lemon Essential Oil

Storage and Use

Store in an airtight glass jar and keep out of direct sunlight. I keep mine in my bathroom cabinet and I use a clean spoon to scoop out.

For the Face: 

Add a scoop to your palm and apply in a circular motion careful not to use too much pressure, let the scrub do the work. I have skin that is prone to break out so I like to leave it on for 5-10 minutes for a deep pore cleaning. Then I just wash off with warm water and pat dry. I would recommend using this at night and no more than three times a week.

For the Body:

Just rub a small amount all over in circular motions, great for rough spots like your feet, elbows, knees, and cuticles. You can also use this as a base for shaving to achieve the smoothest shave ever! Rinse with warm water and bask in your glowing silky soft skin!

If you’re new to using essential oils and would like more information, I’m always happy to chat. PS, Lemon essential oil comes in the Premium Starter Kit, see below for more details on how you can save big and get started making the switch to a natural way of health and beauty!

Happy Oiling,
