Oil diffusing blend for a calm and cozy Saturday night. Not safe for 🐕 however!
The sweet marj is a lovely compliment to the strong lemongrass and cleansing orange. House no longer smells like kids, Shepard’s pie and instead, is helping to chill everyone out.

Try a simple drop of lavender, peace and calming, or peppermint next time on your mask if you feel claustrophobic. One drop (if you’re using Young Living oils) is MORE than enough.

If you are struggling with your mask try putting one drop of oil on it. I’m not claustrophobic but I have asthma so after a long period of time the hot air I’m breathing in and out is almost unbearable. Today I used one drop of peppermint and it was a game changer. It was uplifting and had somewhat of a cooling effect. There are many oils you can try such as lemon, grapefruit or orange for something energizing and motivating. Lavender or Peace and Calming would be relaxing and calming. Remember one drop!!! Don’t overdo it only takes a tiny bit!

Insect repellent is here in 🇨🇦 !!! I love this stuff for keeping all the mosquitos off. It’s completely chemical free and yet works still and keep them away from my Aussie-mossie 😂-loving blood. A teeny drop goes a LONG way. I didn’t finish the container last summer ... just for context when you see it’s. A bit pricey. It lasts so long!!
PM me to grab some if you don’t already have your own account.

Chairwoman Ms. Eshoo questioning Dr Susan Mayne of the FDA

Chairwoman: "Can the FDA require a review of baby lotion for safety before they go on the market?"
FDA Director: "No." 😢
Chairwoman: "Can the FDA require the manufacturer not to use a toxic ingredient like formaldehyde in its baby lotion?"
FDA Director: "No." 😡

🤬

Yep. These words are straight from Susan Mayne, Director, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, U.S. Food and Drug Administration Director at the FDA.

Read labels. Get to understand your ingredients. Don't rely on the FDA or equivalent. Try and choose as natural as possible. Because it doesn't appear that the FDA is looking out for consumers, nor babies apparently.

Ugh this makes me SO angry!! How angry does this make YOU too?!?!?!?

Johnson & Johnson to recall 33,000 bottles of baby powder after asbestos found

This is disgusting!! And to think that this is currently being used in the 🇺🇸 today 😭. I know I used to use it. This will be added alongside their cervical cancer lawsuits I guess. This is why I’m so passionate about helping others learn to read their labels. Know what your putting on your body because these products are still making it onto the shelves. This is what I’m so passionate about helping others learn more about going natural.

The company also said it has started an investigation and is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

I ONLY JUST FOUND THIS OIL? WTH?

DD* asleep by 8:25pm as opposed to 10pm. I’ll Consider this a win. Thank you RutaVala, thank you.

What is it?

RutaVaLa Essential Oil Roll-On utilizes a proprietary blend of Ruta, Lavender, and Valerian essential oils.

Although Lavender and Valerian essential oils are well known, the Young Living RutaVaLa oil blend includes the less well known—yet still effective—Ruta oil. The Ruta graveolens herb is farmed, harvested, and distilled at Young Living’s Ecuador farm.

RutaVaLa oil is formulated to create a refreshing aroma that can be quickly and conveniently applied as a fragrant scent to your wrists, neck, or temples.

Ok tell me how to use it:

* Apply RutaVaLa to your wrists and heart to enjoy its soothing aroma that creates a feeling of emotional balance.

* For a calming aroma after work, roll RutaVaLa on the back of your neck.

* Roll RutaVaLa on the bottoms of your feet during your evening routine for a relaxing scent.

* Apply to the back of your neck during hectic times and follow with a soothing neck massage with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex.

Diffuse orange essential oil and add a touch of Autumn warmth and brightness to your space! Did you also know that orange can act as an ANTISPASMODIC 😱 and CALMATIVE for upset tummies? Apply it (diluted) topically and to the bath!

Trying to stop a sore throat from progressing.. using a drop of undiluted Thieves on the tough parts of the bottom of my feet helps ensure it doesn’t move into my system any more. Works for me 90% of the time! Esp if I have my diluted roller for using on my glands

It’s an immune boosting blend of cinnamon, eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon and clove. All oils that have chemical constituents with properties that work on squashing cold and flu symptoms.

Cold season is approaching. Want to try some? I can mail a couple of samples if you comment or DM me.

This is a picture of me sitting next to my daughter who was having a hysterical, panic attack. Inconsolable, she can’t regulate and will hit full on hysterics if triggered.

—> enter Lavender oil and deep “balloon” breaths

She will willingly accept my cupped hand (with one drop on it) around her nose to help her calm down. In five minutes we are (nearly) back to normal, except for her hiccups now that continue as she’s falling asleep 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Another reason I’m grateful for my oils.

“Essential oils are not just a fad, and not just for hippies... 🤔

My sister was handed this to inhale from before surgery by her nurse. In a hospital!! Specifically for "calming and relaxation".

The oils were added to cotton balls inside the container and will be fragrant for many hours. I don't know anyone who doesn't want a little more calm and relaxation in their life! 🤷‍♀️

Bergamot is a great choice for this. One of my favorites!!”

Joke. I don’t know how much other than it’s a HELLUVALOT.

It smells amazing but most importantly it helps in the 🛌. Oh and chest congestion. Go look it up. 🤭🤭😂

See how close up I can get? That’s YoungLiving for you. Before you trust your next oils, question where they’re from and their process. ❤️

I am in the best business.
With the most successful oils company in the world.
With the best team.
And with the best products,
That change people’s lives.

I had no idea after trying my first bottle of Thieves oil from Young Living that I’d be sitting here today. On my first, all expenses paid leadership trip with other super cool people. We all find JOY in watching our friends find success when they switch out yuck chemicals for oils that WORK, and actually change their lives and solve everyday health and wellness problems.

How could I not love what I do when I receive texts from girlfriends when their kids have the scary cough at 9pm that needs calming ASAP
Or gastro hits the household and Digize helps everyone with their pain,
or when they’re circling through bad cycles and have the can’t copes, and frankincense helped them CALM and regain control.

I am helping other people solve their problems and it feels good.

About to get on a plane and I’m so congested. I can’t have plugged ears for takeoff or God, they’re going to hurt. This works it’s miracles in 10mins. Feels like the pressure comes off and literally let’s more air in, and pushes the snot out.

Voila. Cleansing and dirt extraction underway. With some lavender to calm my angry skin after a few too many peels lately 🤷🏻‍♀️

I buy my kaolin clay in bulk and it’s pretty cheap from voyageursoapandcandle.com

My road to wellness, purpose and abundance

My family and I discovered the power of essential oils in essentials in Feb 2016 when we were blown away by the power of Young Living’s hero prouct - Thieves oil. The way in which it helped me STOP my recurring sinus infections, boost my immunity and get my life back was MIND-BLOWING.

The quality of these oils continues to blow me away. YL founded the Essential Oils industry and remains today the BIGGEST supplier of essential oils in the world. Their quality is obvious - a simple sniff test highlights the potency difference. YL’s committment to being transparent with their farming and packagin practices from SEED to SEAL is of uttmost importance.

It’s also a BILLION DOLLAR ESSENTIAL OIL COMPANY! Not only do I love these products, but people across 200 countries globally trust them too.

Today Health Canada has certified 64 (!) Young Living products as Natural Health Products AND a whole line of Dietary oils approved to add to your food and beverages! How’s that for confidence in a product?
