Introduction to Young Living

Introduction to Young Living

Friends, I had no idea that saying yes to that little kit of oils would change so much for me and my family.  Above is an introduction I recorded.  It is about an hour long but it will show you why I love Young Living, why we choose this company and why we will continue to share this lifestyle that has been such a blessing.

I hope you enjoy it!

Essential Oil Highlight # 3 Peppermint

Essential Oil Highlight # 3 Peppermint
Today we are going to highlight Peppermint Essential Oil by Young Living.

Young Living works closely with Health Canada in order to have certain products approved as Natural Health Products (NHP).  What does this mean? According to this link (https://bit.ly/3g75eX9) through the Natural Health Products Directorate, Health Canada assures that all Canadians have access to a wide range of natural health products that are safe, effective and of high quality.

We assess all natural health products before allowing their sale in Canada. We also check that NHPs are properly manufactured (without contaminants or incorrect ingredients). And we do post-market monitoring to make sure that NHP Regulations are being respected.

Young Living`s Peppermint Oil is an NHP and has these features and benefits:
* Cools fatigued muscles after physical activity
* Relieves joint and muscle pain associated with sprains, strains and rheumatoid arthritis
* Produces a focused environment when diffused
* Acts as a carminative and antispasmodic for digestive discomfort
* Promotes feelings of calm and fights occasional nervous tension
* Provides a refreshing experience when mixed with your favorite shampoo or when applied to the skin after a warm day in the sun
* Reduces the symptoms of cough and cold when inhaled
* Creates an invigorating and refreshing experience when inhaled
Diffuse peppermint in your office or where your kids are doing homework (hello new home schooling parents or those newly working from home!) for an environment that is focused and energized.  Add peppermint to hot bath water (always mixed with epsom salts) and enjoy the revitalizing scent and soothing aromatic steam.  Inhale or apply it to your chest before and during a tough workout for a stimulating scent.  Apply it topically to fatigued areas following physical activity for a cooling sensation.  I also love to use peppermint in my garden and we use it often around our trailer as the pests do not seem to like this aroma.   I would love to send you a sample to try, just send me a message and it will be on its way!
Happy Saturday everyone!

Fill the kitchen with a dose of lemon's familiar lemon-drop aroma to take clean to a whole new level.  Add a few drops to your floor, window or surface cleaning solutions to boost your daily cleaning regime.  I love to combine lemon with other aromas to create unique blends in our home and in roller balls for topical application.  I like to call Lemon the happy oil and I breathe it in whenever I need a mood boost!   I would love to send you a sample to try, just send me a message and it will be on its way!

Father's Day is Coming!!

Father's Day is Coming!!

Is it just me or is time flying?
How is it even possible that it is half-way through May already?  

As we hurtle towards the dog days of summer another important date is also on the horizon!  Father's day is a great time to show Dad how much we appreciate him.  Whether it is a fancy meal, a backyard BBQ, a hike to a favorite spot or just relaxing in the backyard we love to show our Dad's the love.  Instead of a neck tie or a new fishing lure this year, why not give dad something that will make him smell and feel great?

When we stopped using synthetic fragrances in our home and personal care products, one of the things we missed at first was cologne for Jason.  Just a little bit of digging around on the internet proved helpful and we started to craft our own cologne and beard oil blends!  I will be the first to admit that a few of them became bath salt blends because he didn't care for them....but I couldn't let all those amazing oils go to waste (just ask me about some of the things they do and you will understand why!).  But we have found a few that we both really enjoyed and above is one of them.  I also love that we were able to repurpose some of our empty EO bottles and we added a roller ball top that is also reusable.

If you are looking to create a great scent for Father's day (or are local and need a bottle....or five) shoot me a message and we can chat.

We also found some recipes we really enjoyed in Melissa Poepping's PURE MALE COLOGNE collections book (available through Life Science Publishing)

Yours in wellness, purpose and abundance,
