Camp necessities!

My son is going on a week camping trip with our church's high school group.  He just finished packing and I made sure I packed some essential oils for him that he will/might need.
Oregano - to keep treating a couple of warts that he has.  They are almost gone and I just wanted to make sure he is consistent with it
Peppermint - Just in case he feels nauseated, has a stomach ache or gets a fever.  Also, if he needs a quick pick me up during the day
Purification - for any zits that pop up (you know those have to be taken care of),  just in case he gets a sore throat or for any bug bites or little boo boos
Bug Repellent - A spray that that I made to keep the bugs away!!

This is what I put in the Bug Repellent:


And here is the recipe:

What is a Lemon Dropper?


Well, I'm glad you asked!!  First off, let me tell you that about 98% of all Lemon Droppers had no intention of doing the business end of Young Living when they first got their oils.  It was like...give me my oils, now leave me alone...thank you very much. Bye!  We just wanted to use our oils and be happy!  SERIOUSLY!!  But then this magical thing happens...you start using the oils, you fall in LOVE with them and you start telling family and friends about them.  Whether it's a blog post, a simple Facebook post or a face to face encounter; you share how it rid your headache, cleared your eczema, made a wart fall off, helped stop snoring, helped little ones have a good nights rest, etc.  THEN, when you see a post about someone who has an ache, who's suffering from a chronic illness, going through depression or anxiety.....you start thinking to yourself....hmmm THERE'S AN OIL FOR THAT!! Then it SNOWBALLS from there....SERIOUSLY, whether you like it or not.  You're officially obsessed!!

You start getting messages and texts saying...I've got to try those oils....NOW!!!  You get really nervous because you didn't expect this to happen.  So you tell them what you know and your own personal testimony. Then they buy a kit, simple as pie!  :) We don't push the business end, don't even mention it at first.  Usually, they end up asking because a light bulb goes off.  Why not do it just to cover their monthly oil expenses.   But it ends up being so much more....and that's a good thing!!

Everyone is sick and tired of taking medicine and experiencing all its unwanted side effects.  Who wouldn't want to take the natural route, right???  Long story short, these oils sell themselves!!  And you get that rewarding feeling when you know you helped someone tackle an issue and see their lives transform...such a good feeling.  :)

Young Living recently had its annual convention last week and over the last 20 years, they have experienced a steady 20% growth, BUT just this last year and a half, they experienced an EXPLOSIVE 142% GROWTH!!  Hmmmm....that's about the time the Lemon Droppers started.  We're the fastest and strongest growing team in Young Living that was started by two every day women who have their priorities in order....GOD first then the rest will fall into place.
