Thieves Starter Kit

15865811768_c7e25588bd_z

So, I hope everyone is having a great start to 2015.
The beginning of a new year is always exciting – new goals are being set, plans are being made, and new opportunities are (hopefully!) on the horizon.
I think one of the best goals or plans that people can make for themselves is maintaining their health.
And how can we do that?
Wow, there are many ways. You’ve heard them all before. Proper diet, exercise, sleep.
Reduce stress (as if).
I don’t believe it’s just ONE thing. Taking care of our bodies involves ALL of those things.
So if you hear someone tell you that “all you need to do is ______ “, or “all you need to eat is ______ “, and you’ll be healthy – don’t believe them.
Our bodies are imperfect. They take a lot of commitment to keep them running well.
In addition to the things mentioned above, our family stays healthy by using Young Living essential oils.

Again, don’t misunderstand me.
Using Young Living essential oils is NOT the ONLY way to maintain your health.
(and, as the disclaimer below will inform you – I am not making any claims as to the oils preventing or curing any ailments or diseases)

So. Remember when I told you about Thieves oil?
And how great it is for supporting the body’s immune system?
What I didn’t tell you (shame on me) is that Young Living has a whole Thieves LINE of products.
Yep.
So, not only can you benefit from using the oil, but you can also use Thieves products in other areas of your everyday life as well.

Here are the other Thieves products available:
(I have linked the products to their description on Young Living’s website for your convenience)

Is that awesome or what?

If you have never ordered before and would like to order the kit, go here  and choose the Premium Starter Kit with Thieves.
If you have ordered before, you can still purchase the kit. Please contact me if you need help ordering.

I use Thieves products on a daily basis. One of my favorite products is the household cleaner. I put some in a large spray bottle and I use it to clean up our kitchen counters. I feel good knowing it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, and I gotta say – the kitchen smells great! The cinnamon scent just makes everything smell fresh.

Ok, so one of my goals for the new year was to write shorter posts because, face it, with all the information we need/want to read on a daily basis, who has the time?
And I failed.

I have proceeded to babble on…way longer than I intended.
So if you’re still reading – thank you!
Lastly, I would LOVE to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment or contact me through email.

7 Essential Oils to Help You Beat Occasional Stress

Cat-Hiding-Under-Newspaper

Stress.
My muscles tense just typing that word.
Oh, and here’s a pet peeve of mine – don’t you hate it when you go to the doctor and they ask “do you have stress?”
Really??
Are we living on the same planet?
Because I don’t think I know of anyone who does not have stress. Even babies. (those dirty diapers can cause a bit of tension)

So why do they ask? Any doctors out there care to clear this up? Because, Doc, if you really want to know about my stress, you should probably have a PhD as well. If you get what I’m saying.
Anyway.

It’s a given that we all experience occasional stress.
So I think it’s great that Young Living offers several oils that can alleviate that stress.
I made a list of the 7 oils that I use the most when I am stressed out.

1- Stress Away
Duh. The name says it all.
Stress Away is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender.
I didn’t like the smell of the Stress Away oil at first, but it’s growing on me. I use this oil mostly at night before I head to bed.

2- Peace and Calming
This oil has a more gentle scent, and it contains a blend of Tangerine, Ylang Ylang, Blue Tansy, Orange, and Patchouli oils.
This is a great one to use to promote restful sleep. And if you put a couple drops in your freshly washed hair, it makes your hair soft and smooth!

3- Joy
How you can you not like an oil called Joy? I mean, really.
Joy is a blend of Bergamot, Lemon, Palmarosa, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Geranium, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Coriander, and Tangerine.
According to Young Living’s description of Joy, it “brings happiness to the heart”. Awww.

4- Aroma Ease
This is a new oil from Young Living. It promotes calm, and I think it smells yummy.
It contains a blend of Peppermint, Spearmint, Ginger, Cardamom, and Fennel.

5- Lavender
I’ve said it before, but this is probably my favorite oil. I love the smell of lavender, and it really does bring you a sense of peace.
Lavender is a very versatile oil. It’s one of those oils that you carry with you everywhere, because you can use it for just about anything.

6- Ylang Ylang
I’ve made fun of this oil name before.
I know, probably not very nice, but, come on, it just begs to be poked fun at.
This is another oil that I did not care to smell at first. But what’s weird is now I think it smells great.
This oil seems to bring me peace pretty quickly.
And you may remember from a previous post that it can be used to, ahem, encourage romantic feelings.

7- Grapefruit
This one has a sweet smell, and in addition to its calming properties, it can be used to support proper digestion and proper immune function.

Yes, these are the oils that help to give me peace and relaxation.
Want to try one? Or all of them?
You can check them out on the Order Oils page.
There you can see descriptions from Young Living in the product catalog, or you can place an order on the order link.

If you’re an oil newbie, check out the Premium Starter Kit
Three of the oils above are included in the kit, along with 8 others AND a diffuser! Plus you get cool perks when you purchase the kit, such as a 24% discount on all future orders!

Hope your day is as stress-free as possible! Hang in there!
