Joy!!!!

 
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
Rose
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.

Lavender Orange Sugar Scrub!!!

You all have been to the bath and body stores and have seen all the deliciousness they have to offer, right?  Well, I LOVE scrubs, any kind of scrub....sugar or salt.  The last time I was in one of those stores, I picked up a scrub and looked at the ingredients.  WHAT??  I couldn't even pronounce some of the stuff they put in there.  And I couldn't  convince myself to spend $16 for a tub.  Sooooo, I decided to make my own scrub!  Yup, here it is...Lavender and Orange Sugar Scrub!!!

 
1 1/2 Cup Sugar (any kind you want)  I used white sugar because that's what I had on hand
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
25 drops of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
25 drops of Young Living Orange Essential Oil


Combine and mix the Sugar and Coconut Oil well
Add the essential oils and blend well
 
At this point, my body was yearning for this loveliness.  Scoop in glass container and you're done!! :)

Now, if I was going to give this to someone, I would have dolled up the jar a bit.  But it's just for me, myself and I and I'm that no frills type of gal.

So, I have to tell you, this stuff is amazing.  I used it in the shower the night I made it and it made my skin feel soooo good.  No lotion needed afterwards.  It is THAT good!!!

**ORANGE - antitumoral, relaxant, anticoagulant and circulatory stimulant.  Used for insomnia, complexion, fluid retention and wrinkles.

**LAVENDER - antiseptic, antifungal, analgesic, antitumoral, anticonvulsant, vasodilating,  relaxant, anti inflammatory, reduces, blood fat/cholesterol, combats excess sebum on skin.  Used for respiratory infections, high blood pressure, PMS, skin conditions, burns, hair loss insomnia and nervous tension.

DEEP RELIEF....don't leave home without it!

Yup, the title says it all.  Get it while it's in stock.  Don't know how long this will last.  This blend is definitely hoard worthy.  Unfortunately, in my region, I'm limited to one a month.  But hey, one is better than none, right?  The fabulous roll on is my go to for headaches and works like a charm.  When I'm out of it, I use Aroma Seiz and drive it in with Peppermint.  But Deep Relief is sooooo convenient.  You can also use it for any other kind of ache, except for a toothache....lol.  I've used it for sore muscles and backaches, too.  Just love this stuff.  If you want more info on Young Living essential oils, you can leave a comment here, email me or message me on my Facebook Page.

R.C......this stuff is magic!!!

 Okay, so I'm always bragging about how great essential oils are, but this one here is like magic!!  Seriously!! It's really a must have during this cold and flu season!  I woke up this morning with a tinge of a sore throat and I said to myself, 'oh, no, this can't happen!'  We are in unannounced survey mode at work and I cannot afford to get sick.  I get my diffuser out and put seven drops of R.C., place it on the floor outside of the shower and run it while I'm in the shower.  I don't want to say immediate, but yes, I feel immediate relief as shortly after I start inhaling this magic.  I place it on my bathroom counter as I proceed to get ready for work.  I just love the aroma!  As soon as I'm ready for work, I rub a little Thieves on my feet and head on off to work.  But it doesn't stop there, I'll be diffusing R.C. in my office in my Orb diffuser.  While my other coworkers are hacking and downing Robitussin- YUCK!  I'll be inhaling the aroma of R.C.  And I bet you a million bucks, as they continue to get worse, I'll be better.  Yes, that's how much I believe in this stuff!!!

R.C. stands for Respiratory Care.  It a perfect blend of essentials oils that supports the respiratory system.  It contains:
  • Eucalyptus Globulus leaf oil
     
  • Myrtle (myrtus communis oil)
     
  • Pine leaf oil (pinus sylvestris)
     
  • Marjoram leaf oil (origanum majorana)
     
  • Eucalyptus Radiata leaf oil
     
  • Eucalyptus Citriodora leaf oil
     
  • Lavender oil (lavandula angustifolia)
     
  • Cypress (cupressus sempervirens)
     
  • Tsuga (canadensis leaf)
     
  • Peppermint oil (mentha piperita)
     
  • Spruce oil (pinus sylvestris)
The aroma of this blend is uplifting and energizing!  We always have a back up bottle, because this is one blend that you don't want to be without when you need it!!  If you want more information on essential oils, please contact me!
