When I first started out with young living, not even the business side, there were a lot of terms that I needed to know. One of them was OOS.
OOS: out of stock. If you look to the website right now, there is A LOT out of stock, especially on the American side. You go looking for one oil and end up finding it isn't available. So what can you do?
For some products, you can work your way around it with something that will do the trick until the oil you want is in stock.
Here are some ideas from my personal stash to share with you:
Yesterday, I purposely didn't post a blog entry. Why? Because there are just some days where you want to take a day off. Yesterday I didn't sub again and ended up crocheting all day until the evening when I hung out with an awesome friend and went shopping, and by the time I got into my bath filled with warm water and epsom salts mixed with cypress, geranium, lavender and oregano, I had remembered 'I didn't do a blog post today.'
So, was I going to climb out of my relaxing bath, blow out my lavender and vanilla candle to write a post?
The old me would have. The work-a-holic, do it for the people, me would have. But now, and it's hard, but I'm realising more and more that it's ok to not do dishes even when you have a day off and they are piled. It's ok to watch netflix and crochet all day when there is recycling to do. And I realised it's ok to take a day off from writing my blog post to deep soak in a relaxing bath and just take sometime to myself soaking in a bath and drinking a beer while listening to Tonic on CBC radio 2 (jazz hour).
But, while I was soaking and shooing the cats away from the lit candle and my bath, I realised I've never shared my favourite epsom salt creations OR told you it's one of my main ways to give away samples. Everyone loves a bath because they never have time or it's synonymous with relaxing. I go to the dollar store, get 2 or 3 packages of epsom salts, and salt and pepper shakers (at my dollar store, they have 3/$1 and I also buy a package of nice stickers for $1 and label them), put as much epsom salts as I can fit in there, mix with 3-4 drops of the oil they'd like and voila! They can experience the relaxation and health benefits to young living, and they get aromatherapy uses out of it too until they have a bath!
Check out below, some of my favourite epsom salt mixes! Have a nice bath, sip some ningxia and have a blast (I haven't actually had ningxia yet with my bath... I might just do that tonight in a champagne glass!!) !
I am thankful because I get to choose how to live healthy and create my own wellness through young living, both as a wholesale member, and as a budding entrepreneur challenging herself each and every day to share the goodness with everyone.
I am thankful for the opportunity to take a 30 day ningxia challenge and have the oils to enhance the experience and help me take control on my health.
I am thankful for supportive friends who message me about questions, concerns, and general excitement. I am thankful for the support of my family. I am thankful for the ever growing support (but still not there yet) of my boyfriend who is now encouraging me to use my oils whenever I'm angry at him (my own own advice to him. HA!)
I am thankful for a wonderful upline stream who helps me with questions and concerns and helps me become ever more confident with myself and my willingness to continue using and sharing young living.
And I am thankful for YOU! My lovely readers who I will hopefully see more of in the comments or in my emails. Thank you for reading and helping me share my passion for natural health with young living.
I know Canadian thanksgiving already happened, but soldiers sacrificed SO much for us, it is ever humbling to count our blessings and really understand that they died so that we can be thankful for SO MUCH and keep our freedom.
Props to those of you who know what my blog title is referencing (what a great comment to post for the contest!)
Anyways, today I did a video log showing you the horrid weather here, explaining to you which oils can be digested with ningxia red and a special morning shot with 2 of my favourite oils!
(And yes, my evening shot was lemon, grapefruit, topped with cinnamon bark and it was delish! And it helped curb my appetite (which is a tough thing to do when I'm on my time of the month!).
Today is Catholic education Sunday and the priest asked all staff of Holy Spirit school district to stand up for a blessing. And as a substitute teacher in that district.. I got to stand up! Even though no one knew where I taught or what I taught, I still felt incredibly blessed to be a part of the teaching community finally after working towards this dream. I can't wait until I have my own classroom and cannot imagine how excited I will be!
ANYWAYS, after church, I had to scrape my car, drive home on icy roads and swerved twice in the 5 minute drive home, had breakfast, watched the latest episode of legend of korra and then my boyfriend and I went to our separate rooms right beside each other and did our own things.
Now, but 6 pm, I was super antsy. I didn't want to watch anymore TV, all my chores had been done, and it was icy and cold outside. What to do? Lemme tell you: ningxia shot time.
