Seasonal Discomfort

Seasonal Discomfort

It's that time of year again!  And boy am I glad these oils with me!  I am on vacation in Ft. Myers, Florida.  I live in Lansing, Illinois. There, here - it's Spring everywhere, and trees grass and flowers are doing what they are created to do.  I love all of the new growth and flowers, but sometimes, my eyes and sinuses do not!   This was one of those days that I had to pull my contact lenses out of my eyes because of all the little minuscule particles floating about and landing on them.  But I carry these 3 oils around with me, and because of such, wearing glasses for a day is about the only mis-step in my day!  

Yep, I carry a mixture around of this with me. I call it "LLP". Clever name, huh? ;)  Ya, well, I did not make that up - it's what all oilers call it!  I have a few of these made up and sitting around the house. I force my kids to carry them too lol!  They are 18 and 24, but they still listen to Mom!  

This is how I make mine:  I take a 5ml bottle (one I have "upcycled" from an empty Young Living bottle),  add 5 drops each of YL's Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint.  To make it even stronger, sometimes I add 5 drops of Copaiba as well (warning- this REALLY makes it strong!).  Then I fill it up the rest of the way with a carrier oil of your choice (such as grape-seed, fractionated coconut or olive fatty oils) and pop on one of Young Living's roller tops.  Viola!  Apply to the back of your neck, behind your ears, your wrists, or even on the sinus area under your eyes.

Diffusing LLP is also WONDERFUL!  In the Young Living Home or Dewdrop Diffuser, I add 2 to 3 drops of LLP.  It smells fabulous!  I diffuse it every class, and everyone always leaves feeling relaxed, refreshed and happy.

Would you like to have me do a class for you?  I can do a live in-home class for you if you are local to me, or I can arrange one over Facebook.  Just ask!

KidScents Essential Oils: Owie, GeneYus, Tummygize

KidScents Essential Oils:  Owie, GeneYus, Tummygize

What are "KidScents" oils?  Are they just for kids, like "Trix"?  Actually, nobody should eat Trix! But yes, KidScents oils are are designed for kids and can be WELL used by adults too! #winwin!

In April, if your order reaches 300pv you get a trio of them for FREE!!!

So, what are they?  How do we use them!  My kids are grown!!! 

Mine are too, but I won't just not get them, because.....(I LOVE FREE!)  And I need stuff this month, so my order qualified and now I am the proud owner of these 3, adding to the one already owned, SniffleEase.

All KidScents are blended for kids for safe use.  All of the blends have coconut oil in them and can be used straight except for kids with SUPER sensitive skin. Put a YL roller top on them and let kids oil themselves! Kids LOVE essential oils, and this empowers them. But please also empower them with a sense of responsibility!  Oils are not toys.  They should not just rub and entire bottle all over themselves!  Keep them where the kids can't just get at them, and TEACH them about the safety necessary and the value of these precious oils!  

GeneYus an AMAZING blend of many different essential oils such as Sacred Frankincense, Blue Cypress, Cedarwood, Blue Spruce, Palo Santo, Bergamot, Geranium, Hyssop, Melissa (!!), Myrhh (!) Galbanum, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang.   It's to help in focus and concentration.  Member price is $43.75 - what a great free gift along with all the other oils offered for ER members order 300 pv!!

Owie is to approve skin's appearance in the event of an Owie!  Oils are Idaho Balsam Fir, Tea Tree, Helichrysum, Elimi, Cistus, Hinoki, Clove.  That is some awesome stuff in there!  I think it helps with more than "just the appearance of skin"  ;)

TummyGize is like the big kids Digize. For digestion!
I hear folks say they prefer this one as it smells better and works great!  Oils are Spearmint, Peppermint, Tangerine, Fennel, Anise, Ginger, Cardamom

So, there you have it!  I can't wait to start using mine lol!  For ordering info, Go Here

Digest + Cleanse

What is Digest + Cleanse?

This product is the #Freebie for April 2016 if your order is at the 250pv level.  Some of you will get this and plop it on your shelf and never really pay attention do it.

Don't do that!

Digest + Cleanse is an essential oil supplement in a capsule designed to release IN the colon (not the stomach!).  While "there", it will do it's job to soothe the bowel and help the gut, your Second Brain. You know, #GutCheckTime!  Happy Balanced Gut is a happy balanced YOU!

Digest + Cleanse is a way to achieve that.  It has the essential oils of Peppermint, Caraway Seed, Lemon, Ginger Root, Fennel and Anise mixed in with some Coconut fatty oils.  The product is designed to synergistically work to prevent gas, soothe stomach secretions that can cause havoc BOTH ways, ahem, support healthy digestion and stimulate proper secretions from your liver, gall bladder and stomach.  

So, who cares?  Well, your stomach and bowel do lol!  Plus, the PROPER absorption of all the expensive food and other stuff you take in - the good stuff - that would be nice right?  Ok, maybe you eat junk food.  If so, stop reading.  Just kidding, stop eating junk!  EAT GOOD FOOD!  What is good food?  Real food. But that is another story all together. I think if you are reading this, you probably already care about what you put in your mouth, and this can help you make the best of that!  

Digest + Cleanse is also part of the 5 Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living

Orange, Panaway and Stress Away in April Promo. Gimme!

3 of the April Freebies

So, do I want the free oils?  I am filling my Essential Rewards cart and am super close to first freebie level,  like say 20 points away, do I really WANT to add $20 to my order just to get them?


Um, Ok Gayle, I'll get RIGHT on that and do whatever you say...

Seriously tho - those three are worth 100 bucks retail, so at your super smart member discount, that's $75+!!  And, it's 3 great oils** at the 190pv level that you will use!  I already talked about Stress Away the other day and also last fall so check the link for a refresher

But how about Panaway and Orange?  Let's start with Panaway

Panaway is for all of your "aches and pan". ;)  This stuff is awesome, was created by D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living as one of the signature oils.  It contains Helichrysum which is really some of the most amazing stuff on earth, but it's pretty spendy on it's own. This blend gives us all an affordable option.  Ready more about it HERE

Orange!  Orange is one of my absolute favorite oils!!  I LOVE THIS BOTTLE OF SUNSHINE!!  

It smells good, it tastes good!!  In water, yogurt (healthy alternative to flavorings) even white wine! My daughter and I each keep a bottle right in the bathroom by our toothbrushes.  All of the citrus oils are soooo good for your skin, so I rub any excess right on me when after working with Orange.  It's a fun addition to lotions, soaps and balms if you are a DIY-er (I'll be blogging those types of recipes too soon!)  I love it on my chest when I need respiratory support as well.  It's a citrus oil, so be careful in the sun!  

**Please note, the Stress Away part of this freebie is for those who order through Essential Rewards. For more information on that, just ask!  Or find my page on Facebook and ask away there.

April Specials!


Face it - we all love 'em!  If you are anything like me, you sit there waiting for the announcement on the last day of every month waiting for what the #FreeStuff is from #YoungLiving.  You get impatient and scour Facebook through the search feature, or Google  "________ Young Living Specials", kinda hopin' SOMEBODY broke the rules and leaked the specials...
 (I did NOT just say that!)

Ok, so ya, I do that and it NEVER works lol!  So I wait until like, I don't know, 7 pm or something when they FINALLY send the email.  I update my ER and push my order through on the first of the month because YES I AM THAT IMPATIENT, and generally I am out of everything :D

So - HERE THEY ARE!  (ok, its April 4 and EVERYONE knows the specials, but hey, I've been busy with everything I just said....

Awesome!  I had Orange and Stress Away already in the cart, so that made room for a few more things!  See I used up all my #StressAway waiting for the April Specials 

Lots of good stuff this month, and a Spring Catalog too!  I'll talk more about the other oils in the promo and the new Spring items soom.
