I'm so excited! After waiting for almost 2 weeks I finally got my first US shipment from young living! I am so excited to share this all with you and the FREE stuff I got with my essential rewards order as well.
L to R:
En-R-gee: I get tired pretty easily (at least on some days. Other days I put some peppermint on my hands, smell them and then I'm good to go!) but I wanted something more than peppermint to get me going. This is a blend of rosemary, juniper, lemongrass, idaho balsam fir, clove and black pepper. It sure smells interesting but I'm so excited!
Now let's get a little geeky. As you may have noticed on the about page and above, there is this strange paper thing that resembles me. It's called a foldable me! You can customise a foldable paper to look like you. Click the link above to check out the website. My boyfriend got these for us for our first valentines day together (he is kind of a joker). He then got us Christmas versions of ourselves and I look like a little elf. They are pretty cute and I will probably be using them for a lot of my pictures for this blog.
Now, i'm going to go get some frankincense, rub it on my temples and stop this headache before it starts because it is starting to snow outside... sigh. The first snow of the season. Ciao for now!
Yes, the above is true. But if you put a few drops of the oil in your glass first and then add the oil, the water still tastes like lemons and does wonderful things for your body. It may look a bit 'oily' for lack of a better term but it does taste good. I thought it was kind of weird the first time I tried essential oils in my drinks but it is super cool and yet another way to get the best benefits from your oils.
Lemon also helps me be productive. When I need to clean my room (or the house...) I diffuse 3-4 drops of lemon in my room and let it permeate around the house to keep me productive and happy while I clean (I actually like cleaning but I need that kick to get me started, know what I'm saying?). Lemon is also lovely for meditating. If you have trouble, like I do, sticking with a mantra and not having random thoughts (sometimes I have the best thoughts and ideas during meditation when I'm not supposed to even have them) lemon can work as a trigger to help bring you back to the mantra. On my busier days, I diffuse peace and calming and lemon together to help me relax and focus during my meditation or even while I'm relaxing.
Lemon is also great on colds. When I was stuck at home with a sore throat, kind of cranky, I did some research and decided to boil some hot water and make myself some essential oils tea. I used 2-3 drops of thieves and 1-2 drops of lemon (I estimate because sometimes there is always a drop that gets out faster than you'd like), mixed it in the hot water and felt so much better after just one sip. I was able to go back to work the next day and didn't even look like I was sick. My throat wasn't as sore, but as we all know, after the worst comes the healing and you kind of lose your voice. I had a job interview for that portion of my sore throat adventures. Let's just say the receptionists had a good laugh at my misfortune.
You can also add lemon to your recipes, iced tea, drinks, a bath (mix with epsom salts and voila!) whatever! This oil is 100% lemon; no additives or anything else than lemon. And of course, is 100% organic; another great feature of Young Living. Since they control seed to seal, you can be assured you get the best quality.
