Social Media Pages

Hi guys!

Sorry I haven’t been posting as regularly. Between work and family time, the hours sure do go fast, don’t they?

I am developing a couple of upcoming posts, though, so make sure to subscribe (on the right side of the blog) so you don’t miss them!

In the meantime, make sure to visit my social media pages. I do tend to post there a bit more often than here on the blog. Probably because social media is best kept short and sweet 😉

Here they are:

So things have been kind of busy around here, but I wanted to make sure I let you know about this SUPER deal!

Through February 29th, 2016, Young Living is offering a 10% discount on (almost) all premium starter kits. (The only exception is the premium starter kit with the rainstone diffuser.)

So, for example, the Premium Starter Kit with the Dew Drop diffuser is normally $160. Now you can get it for only $144 – a $16 savings!

I have personally never seen a sale on the starter kits. So if you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to get one – that time is now.

Check out all of the great perks of owning a Premium Starter Kit here.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A couple of quick recipes

OK, so I hear there’s a nasty blizzard assaulting my northern friends this weekend.

And while I can’t imagine why you would want to live in a place where blizzards happen how cold it must be there, I can understand what this type of weather can do to our lips.

Young Living has come up with an amazing lip scrub recipe.

 

YLlip

Exfoliating Lip Scrub**

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon olive oil

1–2 drops Lavender essential oil or another aromatic essential oil of your choice*

*We strongly recommend NOT using any citrus essential oils or blends, which could be too harsh on exfoliated skin.
** Recipe is from www.youngliving.com

 

I tried this the other day, and I have to say – my lips felt much softer afterward.

The recipe is enough for a few applications, so you can reapply as needed.

 

I also blended Cypress oil and RC oil in my diffuser recently. I love the smell of both of these oils separately, and I was pleasantly surprised at how great they smelled together!

 

cypressrc

I used 3 drops of each, but next time I will use 4-5 drops of each because I loved the scent, and I am okay with it smelling a bit stronger.

In fact, I think I will go diffuse this again right now.

 

Stay warm northerners!! And check out some of my summer diffuser recipes while you’re cooped up in the house! Maybe the scents will temporarily make you forget about all the white stuff swirling around outside! Be safe!

Hope

Life is hard.

Pain and hurt are real.

No one is exempt.

I’m a Christian, and I wish I could tell you that Christians are free from pain and suffering.

But we’re not. At least not yet. The Bible promises that, in paradise, believers will have complete freedom from pain, sadness, and evil.

But the Bible makes no promises of that during our time here in our earthly bodies.

And don’t believe anyone, televangelist or not, who tries to tell you otherwise. 

You have a 100% chance of experiencing pain and suffering.

But surely I didn’t write this post to leave you feeling hopeless.

Nope. Because there is hope.

Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying there is a way OUT of your pain. But there can be a way THROUGH your pain.

Because as big as your pain is, Jesus Christ is bigger.

He’s BIGGER.

Oh, I still feel pain. I still suffer. But I am comforted and held by Jesus during all of it. Because He’s bigger than anything I can ever experience. He’s big enough to let me know that this is not going to last forever. But while it does, He will hold me close. Even if it’s until my last breath on this earth.

I never give up. You know why?

Because He doesn’t let me.

Not because I push through it. Not because I gather up enough strength for another day. I can’t. I would never have enough strength. I would never have what it takes to make it another day.

But He does. He gives me the next breath that I need. And the next. And the next.

My pain doesn’t define me. Jesus does.

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33b

Life

Last year at this time I wrote a post about celebrating Jesus. 

It wasn’t one of my usual posts about essential oils.

I love Young Living essential oils.

And while they have changed my life for the better, they are not what gives me life. Jesus Christ gives me life. Life that goes way beyond my time on this earth.

I really hope you’ll check out that post.

Then check out this fantastic song, which describes life with Jesus so beautifully.

Christmas Diffuser Recipe

holidaydiffuser

You didn’t think I’d pass up a chance to do a Christmas diffuser recipe, did you?

This recipe is perfect for getting into the Christmas spirit.

Only a Scrooge would not like this recipe. Seriously.

So if you haven’t yet decorated your Christmas tree, make sure you diffuse this while you are decking the halls.

Then add some holiday tunes. And you’re set.

Here’s the blend:

4 drops of peppermint essential oil

2 drops of frankincense essential oil

2 drops of Christmas Spirit essential oil

2 drops of Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil

 

If you’re a oil newbie, be sure to check out the Premium Starter Kit, which contains peppermint and frankincense (and 9 other oils AND a diffuser, and entitles you to a major discount on future orders!!)

Idaho Balsam Fir, Christmas Spirit, and all of the oils can be found in the product catalog.

And, if you’re doing some online shopping, check out the holiday specials.

Let me know what you think of the recipe. And as always, shoot me a message if you have any questions.

Giving the Gift of Wellness

holidaycatalog

I don’t do Black Friday.

Which may seem odd, because I loooove getting a good deal.

But, no. Uh-uh.

Now…I am not judging any of you who actually do get out there and snag those awesome bargains.

I’m just not quite as brave as you are.

But – give me a laptop and a credit card, and I can shop all day long. It’s easy, it’s quick, and I can do it while sipping tea in my PJ’s.

So, if you’re like me, you’ll be downright tickled (that’s right, tickled) to hear that you can score some unique and affordable gifts from Young Living.

Online.

No stores, no lines. No fear of getting trampled for a $3 waffle iron.

And these gifts promote wellness. Which is perfect.

Because right after Christmas comes New Year’s, and all the resolutions. For health and wellness.

So check out Young Living’s Holiday Catalog for all of the cool gift sets and treats.

Or check out the Premium Starter Kit which is really like a bunch of gifts all in one package (not to mention the best value).

And then head over here to place an order.

From the comfort of your own home.

You’re welcome.

 

(and for the rest of you – be safe out there!!!)
