Valor is making a comeback back!

Yes, it's true!  This is not a typo!  This long awaited sought out blend that is full of awesomeness is making a come back.  Be ready.....tomorrow, October 26, starting at 9:00 am, Valor will be available!!  There is a limit to one bottle per month.  Young Living just wants to make sure that everyone can get a piece of the pie!! :)  This announcement came just in time because I am down to my last bottle of Valor.  And you better believe that I will be purchasing my one bottle per month so I can build up my stash again.  We all know that this highly sought out oil will be out of stock some time in the future.  The supply just can't keep up with the demand.  I mean, really, the crops can only grow so fast, right???  This blend is great for balancing emotions and your nervous system.  It's great for relaxation.  I use it daily on my commute to work because if I don't, I'll find myself clenching my jaw.....darn Southern California traffic!! :)  Many people call this blend 'chiropractor in a bottle' for various reasons.  Google this blend and you will find so many uses!!  If you have any questions about this essential oil blend, shoot me a message!!  Accept no imitation!!!

Fall Aroma...

I love Fall!!  I love everything about it! The weather is starting to cool down.  In Southern California, it's PERFECT weather!!  Fall decorations are going up (even though they have Christmas decorations selling in stores right now)  I still like to take time to enjoy the Fall season!  I love the colors of fall and I especially love the scent of fall.  It's so comforting and makes you want to snuggle all. day. long!!  What are your favorite things about Fall?  In honor of Fall, I am diffusing THIEVES and ORANGE essential oils.  The aroma is heavenly!!

Also, in honor of Fall, I am sporting Pumpkin Spice and Maple Sugar Jamberry Nail Wraps.  Aren't they cute??
I honestly can not believe how fast this year has flown by.  It's crazy!!  I'm making it a point to enjoy life, even the teeniest, tiniest things in life.  Enjoy the Present because once it's gone, it will never return. Take care my friends!!!  :)

Fight Allergies!!!

Yup, it's that time again....nasty allergy season!!  I've been hearing and seeing, left and right, people complaining about their allergies.  Raise your hand if you are one of these people.....okay, hands down.  That is definitely too many!!!!  Itchy, watery, puffy eyes, NONSTOP runny nose, congestion, sneezing, ect.  Enough already!  You want relief, right?  Most of you probably reach for your Claritin, Benadryl, etc. BUT let me share with you what we do in OUR house!! :)
My oldest daughter recently had a battle with her allergy symptoms and she took out our weapons.  I'm telling you, allergies DO NOT have a fighting chance up against this trio....Lemon, Peppermint and Lavender Essential oils!!! Before I started using essential oils last year, I heard several people say that they altogether STOPPED using their allergy meds.  Yeah, right!  Curiosity got the best of me after I was introduced to Peppermint when I had a pounding headache.  It wasn't soon after I started using essential oils that my allergies started acting up.  It was the moment of truth....and guess what???  The trio didn't fail me!!!  It was awesome!! READ HERE ABOUT HOW THESE OILS WORK.
I get asked all the time about how we use the trio, so here is a run down:
Topically - put a drop of each oil in the palm of your hands, rub together then rub on the back of your neck, across your forehead and on your temples.
Swipe a drop of lavender along the bridge of your nose and across your cheekbones
I also make a roller bottle with equal parts of each oil and top it off with a carrier oil...that way you can take it on the go and apply as needed.  Make sure that you use a glass bottle with a metal roller ball.
Aromatically, put 3-4 drops of each in a diffuser and diffuse as needed.
Or you can inhale as follows.  In this case, you would be putting a drop of each oil in the palm of you hands.
Last way to take this trio is internally....
Please note:  I can only vouch for Young Living essential oils and their efficacy.  I cannot recommend taking any other essential oils internally because I do not know if they own their own farms nor do I have knowledge of their distillation process.  I strongly suggest that you do your own research. 
You can use one method or a combination of the above methods.  It's all up to you. :)
So there you have it!! This is how we battle allergy season!  If you have any questions, leave me a comment or shoot me an email.

Together is Better!!!

These two....Thieves and Lemon are great when used individually, but together they are BETTER!!!

Last month a few people in the office were sick....coughing and coughing AND coughing.  It wasn't a pretty sight.  I felt like I was living in a germ bubble while I was at work.  It was the Wednesday before Valentine's Day, which fell on a Saturday this year and my mission was to get better before then.  While a couple people in the office had Robitussin at their desk, I had Thieves, Lemon, Purification and R.C.  But I used Thieves and Lemon the most.  The staff just chuckled as they saw me use my oils while they were chugging down their Robitussin.  I had a smile on my face too!  :)  And guess what?  I was better by Valentine's Day.  The other people in the office did get better the following week, but I felt the germs still lingering.  I continued with my Thieves daily as a preventative measure and I always, always put Lemon in my water.  The first week of March, one girl in the office relapsed! And it was bad enough where she had to take a day off of work.  She came to work the next day and asked me about my "snake oils" LOL.  I told her to bring in some honey to work.  So for two days I gave her a drop of Thieves and Lemon in a spoonful of honey three times a day for two days.  TWO DAYS and she was better!  So is she a believer?  You better believe it!!

People can laugh all they want, I'll continue to go about my business and use my oils!  What are your favorite combinations?  I'd love to hear your stories.

I'll admit, when I got my starter kit about a year ago, I really didn't care for this oil.  In fact, I couldn't stand the smell.  Well, let me tell you, my feelings for this special oil have COMPLETELY changed!  I absolutely LOVE it!!  What's in it, you ask?  I'd be happy to tell you!  :)
Joy is a perfect blend of
Bergamot - uplifting/relieves tension/calms anxiety
Mandarin - uplifting/refreshing/promotes happiness
Ylang Ylang - boosts confidence
Lemon - invigorating/promotes energy
Geranium - eases nerves and tension
Jasmine - mood lifter/boosts confidence
Palmarosa -reduces stress and tension
Roman Chamomile -reduces nerves and irritability
Rosewood - creates a sense of well being
That is some good stuff!!!  I used this all week long and it kept me in my happy zone!  :)  My friend Jen got me a diffuser necklace and Joy is the scent that I carried with me all week.
