Summer Diffuser Recipes – Part 2

Summer diffuser series

.

For this week’s summer diffuser recipe, I blended orange, lime, and lemongrass.

These scents are a bit subtle, so I had to increase the number of drops that I used in my first attempt at it.

Here’s the recipe:

 

summer2

4 drops orange

4 drops lime

2 drops lemongrass

As always, the recipe can be modified to your liking. Some prefer a stronger fragrance, and some like a more subtle aroma.

Another thing to consider is where you are diffusing. You won’t need as many drops in a smaller room, whereas a large room will require more drops.

Here’s a little info on these oils:

Lime* – lime essential oil is stimulating, which can result in increased mental clarity and creativity. It can also support a healthy immune system, aid in weight management, and support healthy skin. In addition, lime oil can provide antioxidant support.

Lemongrass* – lemongrass essential oil can help support the digestive system

Orange* – orange oil can help enhance the flavor of foods.

The cool thing about these oils is that they are readily accessible as far as production goes, so they won’t break the bank.

AND, right now – for a LIMITED time – Young Living is throwing in a BONUS oil with the purchase of a Premium Starter Kit! The bonus oil will be either orange, tangerine, or lemongrass (Young Living’s choice).

Eleven oils, a diffuser, samples….sounds like a great deal, doesn’t it?

So let me know if you liked this week’s recipe…or even if you hated it. I want the feedback. It helps for planning future recipes.

See you next week with the next recipe!

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)

Bar Soap
Dental Floss
Toothpaste
Foaming Hand Soap
Mouthwash
Lozenges
Household Cleaner
Spray
Hand Purifier
Wipes

Is that awesome or what?
Now, all of these products can be purchased separately, OR, you can purchase a kit which includes many of these items.

The Premium Starter Kit with Thieves includes:
(1) Thieves essential oil, 15ml
(1) Thieves Aroma Bright toothpaste, 4oz.
(2) Thieves foaming hand soaps, 8oz. each
(1) Thieves mouthwash, 8oz.

AND:
NingXia Red samples
Product guide
Lots of extras including booklets and oil sample sachets

This is a GREAT deal for those who want to try out some Thieves products and take advantage of the benefits they offer.
And if all of that is not enough for you, here are some more perks.
A Thieves starter kit purchase will qualify you for wholesale pricing – a whopping 24% off! – on all future orders! (does not apply to the original kit purchase)

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.

Order Now for Christmas!

I hope you are all enjoying the craziness of the holidays. Here in Florida we’re enjoying tolerating the craziness of the snowbirds.

Is it really necessary to drive a perfectly capable vehicle at 22mph in a 45mph zone? During rush hour?

Anyhoo, there are certainly many things to enjoy and be thankful for this time of year.
One thing I am VERY thankful for is online shopping (see snowbird comment above).
Is there anything better than sitting at home, ordering Christmas presents, and then having them come right to your door a few days later? I just wish I could get them shipped pre-wrapped. Wrapping presents is not my forte. As anyone in my family will attest.
The presents I wrap usually have a whole extra hunk of paper at the ends, typically folded over 17 times.
Or they have a big “paper patch” taped on in the middle, which is where I had to fill in the paper shortage.
I have wonderful hand-eye estimating skills.
But – back to online shopping.

If you are looking for a really cool, unique gift for someone…..how about Young Living essential oils?
Pure and healthy oils that have, oh, I don’t know, about a BILLION practical uses?
Maybe a Premium Starter Kit?
They will get a box jam-packed with 11 oils, a diffuser, and a bunch of samples and other materials.

Go to the Order Oils page  to place an order for a Premium Starter Kit, or for any other items you would like.

And, as always, if you have any questions, just ask!

Happy shopping!
