Sounds like it's the best price ever too! But what do you DO with the stuff?  Well some Young Living big shots gave us some tips.  Here, they are called "Diamonds".  That's their Young Living Rank, and they are indeed a special bunch with great knowledge.  

"Here’s the top 20 reasons some of the Diamonds put together to use Rose essential oil. You can also do an internet search for the health benefits of Rose essential oil and find hundreds more ways to use this precious and valuable oil. Young Living says that “Rose (Rosa damascena) has a beautiful, strong floral and sweet fragrance that is intoxicating and highly romantic. It helps bring balance and harmony with stimulating and uplifting properties that create a sense of well-being and self-confidence.”

Rose has been used throughout history in the ancient art of aromatherapy for the well being of the body and mood-elevating support. Interestingly, because rose petals are not very high in oil content, it takes several thousand pounds of rose petals to produce just one ounce of this valuable oil, depending on the variety of plant used. Due to these factors, rose oil tends to be much more than most oils. However, its price does not prevent it from being one of the most popular essential oils. DOn't be afraid to use this oil, saving it for a rainy day. You're worth every drop in that bottle!

1. Love in a bottle. You cannot have a bad day when wearing this oil. Makes my heart sing.
2. Boosts self esteem, confidence, and mental strength when feeling sad.
3. One drop of this oil and I'm like ahhhhhh.... Speaking of...gonna go dab that fancy oil on my wrists today...Not gonna lie...I kinda wish I'd bought more than just the one bottle!! Can't WAIT for mine to come in!!! Who else is getting one?
4. I applied it on myself as a perfume everyday & 3 months later I made Diamond? - personal testimonial (change your frequency change your life)
5. My mom wore it one day and every child she was around kept smiling and reaching for her. She said it was crazy! Those frequencies attract others!
6. Did you realize that you can use rose oil on your body without actually putting a drop directly on your body? Simply lie down and put the capped bottle ON you. Relax and let it stay there for as long as you wish. Your rose oil will last a long time that way!
7. Try it sometime. You can use this technique with any of our Young Living essential oils.
8. Savvy beauty serum for the face, neck and hands
1/2 oz sunflower seed oil
3 drops frankincense
2 drops myrrh
1 drop rose
(it can be EXTREMELY hard to get rose out of the bottle (it gels up) so..... the best solution I have found is to put the bottle in my bra or a pocket and let it warm up for 5 minutes. True Story.
Body heat warms it up and the oils becomes perfect liquid and I am LITERALLY on cloud 9 all day. The frequency of it is so powerful!)
8. I wear Abundance & Rose oil to smell like a million bucks. wink emoticon
9. Love Rose! We use it in a roll-on blend (with Frankincense, Lavender and several others) on our immunocompromised 10-month-old micropreemie to support her body. She's been healthy and incredibly well inside and out, every single day since leaving the NICU 6 months ago.
10. Here are a couple of success stories I had in my documents: Just before going to bed, I like to put rose oil on the center of my forehead, over my heart, on my brain stem, and under my nose. This gives me the most restful sleep imaginable! When I wake up the next morning, I feel like I’ve been on vacation for weeks. I notice it when I don't put it on.
11. And another: When I’m out of sorts, I love to inhale rose oil. If you play your cards right, the bottle should last a whole year. Yep, I’m worth it!
12. Rose +Abundance = Smell like a million bucks
13. Terrific skin-supporting properties (hence it's inclusion in Rose Ointment).
14. "When I feel non-present I love to open a bottle of Rose and breathe in the aroma. Life can resume now."
15. Very high frequency…ORAC of 1,604,284! WOW!
16. Emotional support. Big time. That's my focus.
17. Just imagine all the bouquets your husband bought you or should've bought you and the love that it represents times a hundred in one bottle. Every drop... is a touch of love.
18. Brings peace and calm
19. Great for sensitive skin
20. Perfect oil to use when worrying about the past. It opens the heart and the mind."

A Little Story

Hello, and welcome to January!  OK, it's not that bad, right?  My first-born was born on  January 14, so it's always been a nice extension of the holidays in a way, with more celebrations and some of the "crazy".

Today, I want to tell you a little story....

As I hope you know, or if you don't yet, I hope you research and learn, Essential Oils are fascinating! There is a lot to each Essential Oil, so never think one oil is used ONLY "for this" and another  ONLY "for that".  Thank goodness!

So here is my short tale:  Last night, I needed support for my respiratory system.  RC is lovely for that, but I opted for something a bit less fragrant this time.  I chose Lemon and Frankincense

I added about 3 drops of each into my Bamboo Diffuser from Young Living and settled in for the night.  Oh, how I loved that almost immediately!  

And here is where it gets interesting ;)  Twice, I woke up bathed in sweat.  I don't normally "hot flash", but thought - maybe?  One of those times that I awoke,  I distinctly recall a dream where I woke up one morning to find my entire house full of tradesmen of all construction trades doing various remodel projects - IN EVERY ROOM!! At first I was excited!  We were finally getting a new walk-in shower in the bathroom instead of the archaic, never-used whirlpool tub that is too big to be useful!  But then as I walked around - in my robe with tradesmen wandering about - I noticed glass tiles going in (hate them - sorry!) as well as paint - everywhere! New floor tile!   All in "cool" colors!  Deep Plum!  Grey!  I decorate in WARM!  (Like a Tuscan-Italian theme).  I got upset with my husband who had apparently arranged ALL of this without telling me or letting me pick one thing out.  I woke up from THAT nightmare, kinda laughed, "dried up", and went right back to sleep.  I don't recall the second dream, just remember waking up all sweaty a second time. But, when I awoke for the day, I was refreshed and ready to go! 

So, where is this going?  Well, I thought it was funny!  But my daughter asked me this morning what was wrong. She said twice in the middle of the night she could hear my mumbling and crying LOL!

OK, back up a bit...My hubby went out of town the other night,  and he had been such a crab all week that I specifically told him to not talk to me at all for about "a month" - to only contact me via text if he needed something for the business (did I mention, I also work for him????).   Ya, our marriage is a lot like this one:

We often think of hiring a camera crew and doing a reality show.  Not really, but anyway, we are expressive and vocal and fight well - to the point where we crack each other up DURING the argument, but anyway...he flies out with his buddy for this golf trip the other night, then wakes me up out of a sound sleep the very next morning to yell at me about some office problem I should have miraculously been able to figure out on my own, conveniently forgetting the very specific and heartfelt instructions of "just text me!"

No worries. I got over it quickly (I thought) like I always do.  (As does he). We thank God that He gives us the ability to do that.  I still took his calls and was sweet. His life as a business owner with employees is tough - I know.  And by last night, he called to apologize for the way he had been and to yet again praise me for the wonder that I am ;)

So, the moral of the story was that not only did my glorious Frankincense and Lemon help my respiratory system, they also helped my emotions by urging me to work things out in sleep that I had apparently not done yet!  I didn't think I was still ticked, but I guess I was!  BTW, if you know us, you know this is just us.  It's just the way we are.  And now,  it is off my chest, thanks to my oils.  Bear in mind, everyone is different!  Our reactions will vary. Therefore, I encourage you to research and learn and try a few things. I think you'll be as impressed as I continue to be with Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.  Accept no substitute - use only the oils you know that are distilled and bottled the very finest way!

These things keep continuing to blow my mind...
